The Three Month Vacation

By Sean D'Souza

This podcast is about marketing strategy and growth with clear limits. The purpose of growing a business isn't just revenue. Revenue and profits run the business, but it's the ability to do what you want when you want, and where you want. That's control. And that's what most small business owners never achieve. The Three-Month Vacation shows you how to create a powerful business, while still taking generous amounts of time to relax and unwind.
