Episode 220: Business Growth Through Expanding Consciousness with Mark Monchek
Show Notes

In this age of disruption, we need to reassess how we do business and how we interact with one another in the work environment. Today’s guest, the Founder and Chief Opportunity Officer of opportunity Lab, Mark Monchek, believes that modern business growth has to first start with expanding one’s consciousness. 

Mark’s company is a strategy consultancy firm geared around developing the individual first in order to grow the company as a whole. In our guest’s second conversation with us, he comes loaded with unique and brilliant perspectives on culture and leadership. 

We discuss whether entrepreneurs are made or born and explore Mark’s own entrepreneurial mindset. We then learn the meaning of expanding consciousness and debunk the myths of the great resignation and quiet quitting, before assessing the modern problem of poor mentorship in the workplace, and why success is only possible with a great network of support. We can’t wait for you to tune into this one!
