It becomes, which series of children's storybooks should I buy my kids? And that's great because we want it to be something that everyone just decides to do. So we really welcome like other people in the space. We do fair work actually promoting other companies that are in the entire education space because we want to validate it as an industry.

We wanna make sure it's important, it's at the forefront of education, and that everyone kind of knows about it and the benefit that it brings.

Gresham Harkless 00:52

Hello, hello, hello. This is Gresh from the I AM CEO podcast and I appreciate you listening to this episode. If you've been listening this year, you know that we hit over 1600 episodes at the beginning of this year. We're doing something a little bit different where we are repurposing our favorite episodes around certain categories, topics, or as I like to call them, the business pillars that we think are gonna be extremely impactful for CEOs, entrepreneurs, business owners, and what I like to call CB Nation architects who are looking to level up their organizations.

This month we are focused on the visibility game, a.k.a. Marketing, Advertising, PR, and Sales. I often say the name of the game is being found, and these tools will help you to do that. We have heard the philosophical question if the tree falls in the forest and no one is around, does it make a sound? If there's a really, really great product or service and no one knows about it, how great is it really? What impact does it ultimately make? This is where we will go into this month looking at visibility, branding, marketing, public relations, sales being the lifeblood of businesses, building many companies and so much more.

So buckle up and sit back and enjoy this special episode of the I AM CEO podcast.
