So a large majority of people with sciatica, low back pain, we live a very sedentary lifestyle. Unfortunately, many of us have done exactly what we're doing right now, just sitting at a computer far too long over the last year. And with that come a lot of imbalances.
That's what we aim to fix through our unique programs that we desire for individuals.
Do you want to learn effective ways to build relationships, generate sales, and grow your business from successful entrepreneurs, startups, and CEOs without listening to a long, long, long interview?
If so, you've come to the right place. Gresham Harkless values your time and is ready to share with you precisely the information you're in search of.
This is the IAMCEO podcast.

Hello, hello, hello. This is Gresh from the IAMCEO podcast, and I appreciate you listening to this episode. If you've been listening this year, you know that we hit 1600 episodes at the beginning of this year. 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, the 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 level up their organizations.
This month, we are focusing on operations. The systems will set you free. So think about systems, think about flow, sustainability, potentially working out in your morning routine, waking up early, e-commerce, different business models. Think of the operations in the models that basically set up the foundation to allow the creativity within organizations, but also to make sure the trains are running on time and things are going as they should.
Now, this is extremely important because we often can turn to the sexy parts of business and forget about the operations and how important that is. I really want to focus this month on this specific topic, so sit back and enjoy this special episode at the IAMCEO podcast.
