Grow Your Business through the Power of Listening to Customers

Are you listening to your customers? Do you understand what they are trying to achieve? Are you using what you hear/learn to actually design a better experience for them?

I was thrilled to be interviewed by Leah Berry and to a be part of her 30 Experts in 30 Days series; she asked me questions about employee experience and customer experience, of course, but from a variety of different angles.

We really covered a lot of territory in the interview, but the main questions Leah posed were based on some previous blog posts that I've written.

Please have a listen to our interview; it was a fun conversation. I enjoyed answering all of the questions Leah posed for me. As I mentioned, Leah pulled her questions from some previous posts I wrote, and I've linked to the relevant post for each of the topics we covered below. Check out the links/previous posts for more details around our conversation. But watch the interview first! (It's about 35 minutes long.)
To accompany this interview, Leah provides some great resources for you. I love that she prepared a tip sheet (in addition to the tip infographic above) for you to download and use to put your learnings into action. In addition to our Google Hangout interview, you'll find...
  • An audio recording of the interview
  • The transcription of the interview (for those who prefer to read the interviews)
  • A Top Tips document (to help you remember the key points from the interviews)
  • A Take Action Worksheet (to help you put the knowledge into action)
Have a look. Have a listen. And come back and feel free to ask me any questions you might have. Thank you!

The majority of business owners prefer a line of credit because it allows a business to establish a significant amount of cash on demand to make purchases that are too large for a credit card and too small for a loan. However, when it comes to qualifying for a line of credit many small business owners are left in the dark. How do I start my own business online
