Commanding Business

The challenge with growth is that the habits that got you here become the limitations that prevent you from getting there. Growth not only requires us to learn new habits. It requires that we unlearn old ones. I’m Tim Hamilton, CEO of Praxent and host of the Commanding Business podcast. Each week, I interview authors, experts and real world leaders about how they grew their teams, their organizations and ultimately themselves. From leadership to management and marketing to innovation, we’ll cover a variety of topics with an aim to uncover actionable takeaways you can implement in your own organization today.

Founder, Arnie Malham, of CJ Advertising seems to have done everything right while growing his business. He founded his niche advertising agency with the help of others. After proving his worth to his initial clients, they introduced him to other prospective clients within the same industry. He used his private business book collection to start an education movement within his company, which then led to another revenue stream, the Better Book Club. Also, when he hit the 10 million dollar/25 employee mark, instead of getting stuck in mire he joined EO, which helped him to propel his company forward. “Courage is a key component to success”, he says. Arnie shares which books influenced him and his organization in today’s episode.
