Why it was selected for “CBNation Architects”:
In this IAMCEO podcast episode, Todd Randall, an eight-time CEO and business coach, shares his story on achieving freedom and success while embracing passion and simplicity. Todd started as an executive at a $300 billion company but found himself entangled in overwhelming baggage and stress.

Can I ask one specific question about my business? Cause I think everyone's going to learn from it. And then you have the floor and you have one-on-one interaction with somebody who's much more experienced than you. And that's a way to maximize value right now, because it's really hard to find good mentorship for good value.
That's my hack, is find a small group and then you get small moments of imminent wisdom.

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, 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, 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. So I really want to focus this month on this specific topic. Sit back and enjoy this special episode at the IAMCEO podcast. Hello. Hello. Hello. This is Gresh from the IAMCEO podcast. I have a very special guest on the show today. I have Todd Randall of Beach View Coaching.
Todd, super excited to have you on the show.

Hey, guys, thanks for having me. It's an honor.
Gresham Harkless 02:11
Yes, the honors is all ours. What I want to do before we jump into the interview is read a little bit more about Todd so you can hear about some of those awesome things that he's working on.
And Todd, the eight time CEO and business coach from rural Florida found that running a business can lead you to an early grave, if you let it. He set out to build a business enterprise that worships freedom more than money and somehow ended up with both. This is a story of how a man set a crazy goal for himself to learn, to play polo and travel the world, indulging that passion and then working persistently until he achieved it.
Todd, super excited again to have you on the show, my friend. Are you ready to speak to the IAMCEO community?
Todd Randall 02:46
I'm ready. Thanks. Nice intro.
