Welcome to the Evolvepreneur (After Hours) Show
I am your Special Host Richard Wray
Join me today where we dig deep with our guests and get you the best concepts and strategies to fast-track your business.
My very special guest today is Paul Ramondo ...
Paul Ramondo, a seasoned digital marketer and founder of Bright Side agency, traces his career back to promoting bands on MySpace and adapting those tactics for Facebook. He underscores the importance of aligning one's "inner game" before venturing into entrepreneurship. Paul candidly discusses his early years, marked by imbalanced work hours that took a toll on his health. He credits a fitness tracker for revealing the physical impacts of sleep deprivation and stress. Paul also emphasizes the significance of embracing an abundance mindset in client relationships. In sum, the podcast offers valuable insights on maintaining a healthy work-life balance, prioritizing self-care, and assessing new hires based on values, not just skills.
