But that’s not all — if you are a business owner with ten or more employees (or more) Andrew is also offering a free one-hour coaching session with his company SHIFT, a management consulting firm that follows a data-driven approach to workplace excellence. SHIFT helps clients establish long-term, profitable, scalable business growth while sending employees home happier, healthier, and more fulfilled.

With that business out of the way, the co-hosts welcomed this week’s guest — check out the full video for the complete discussion and an interview with Leonardo McClarty:
