IAM1692 – CEO Improves Efficiency by Leveraging on the Right Technology
Podcast Interview with Victor Calabrese
Why it was selected for “CBNation Architects”: Victor understands security and technology and works with a lot of organizations to evaluate that. We talked about the power of “learning” which was a strong part of his story. Victor had an understanding that business can't be separated from technology. It must be integrated. Also, there's not one specific technology that needs to be “recommended.” It's ultimately what's good for the organization. We also touched on what a Technology Service Partner (TSP) versus a Managed Service Partner (MSP) and the importance of security.

The technology itself shouldn't be the thing that we're pushing. I want you to tell me why you want that specific software. So once you understand the business needs and how the business works, that's when the MSP or the technology service provider will go in and say, you know what? For your particular case, you should be using this.

Hello, hello, hello. This is Gresh from the I am CEO podcast and I appreciate you listening to this episode. And if you've been listening this year, you know that we hit 1600 episodes. And we're doing something a little bit different where we're repurposing our favorite episodes around certain categories, topics, or as I like to call them, business pillars that we think are going to be extremely impactful for CEOs, entrepreneurs, business owners, and what I like to call the CB Nation architects, who are looking to love, love their organizations.
This month is around technology. We're a technology company that does dot, dot, dot, and technology is no longer an afterthought or something that you might do. It's actually a core part of your business. And if you're a real estate investor, you're using it. If you're a financial firm, you're using it, cleaning company, author, speaker, you are using technology, and if you are in any type of business, you are using technology. And if you're not, then you're probably gonna be disrupted by this.
So this month we're gonna look into repurposing episodes that are around technology, whether that be firms or organizations that are actually investing in technology and have that as a core part of their mission and vision of what they're doing, or people that just might be using them as CEO hacks and CEO nuggets in ways that you can leverage them. So remember that we're all a technology company that does dot, dot, dot, or a technology organization that does dot, dot dot. So sit back and enjoy this special episode of the I am CEO podcast.
