EP 166 | It’s all my Fault with Christie Leu



About this Episode

The surest sign of business maturity is the willingness to take responsibility and ownership for everything that’s happens in your business—especially those things which go wrong. BOD™ member and DC designer, Christie Leu says when there’s a problem, “it’s all her fault,” and that means, she can correct anything that isn’t working.

In this episode we learn:

  • look at jobs that went wrong and find what you could have done to make them better
  • consider how to fix or avoid a problem in the future
  • improve communication with clients and contractors with better written systems
  • be responsible for choosing who to work with and when to walk away
