034: What It Takes To Be A Leader Across The Globe with Cam Miller

What does it take to be an entrepreneur? Is it a solid idea for a new product or a strong business plan to back it up? Yes, both these things play a part in the initial stages of entrepreneurship. But, for a new entrepreneurial venture to achieve long-term success, the entrepreneur must have the leadership qualities necessary to transform that vision into reality.


It’s no secret that you can’t grow a business without employees. Yet, most business owners focus their attention on everything except leading their teams and forget that employees don’t see the bigger picture from an entrepreneurial perspective.


The business world is overwhelmed with expensive, complex, and time-consuming growth strategies. These strategies look fool-proof in the boardroom but fail when deployed in the real world. Your business craves leadership strategies that take the organization where it needs to go in simple and easy-to-follow steps. In this episode, we’re pleased to have Cam Miller with us. Cam boasts a string of successful global careers and leadership experience in engineering, investment banking and co-founded what has twice been the UK Babywear Brand of the Year.
