Making Yourself Fire-able, And Business Lessons from Pokémon Go: LifeWork Episode 15

What do we want? Freedom! When do we want it? At a time and place of our choosing!

After a month-long hiatus in which they both went “off the grid” on relaxing vacations, Meagan and Dave are back. In episode 15 of LifeWork, they discuss the systems and team they’ve had to put in place to make their businesses “vacationable,” and how to take that even further to become “fire-able.” They also talk about the incredibly fast-growing popularity of Pokémon Go and what entrepreneurs can learn from the phenomenon.
