Manage episode 229795864 series 2402571
In the final Confident ROi episode to come from Orange County, Alex Vorobieff sits down with host Paul Roberts to discuss the progress he has made on acquiring a business.
In a wide-ranging episode, Alex reveals why doing due diligence on the people of a company is sometimes more important than looking at the financials. He also explains why you must first understand a company’s culture before trying to implement any changes to it.
We discuss what personality tests can tell us about ourselves in relation to the business world. Alex discloses how the Strategic Coach program helped to develop his sense of purpose, and he elaborates on why he moved from Orange County to Boise, Idaho.
Finally, we look at how playing Gin taught Alex that you should always “pick up a card” because you never know what opportunities await on the other side.
