This often means taking a look at your company processes and determining if they need changing, something that my guest today, Mike Scott, specializes in. Mike's focus is accountability: why it matters and how it can really be the key to an organization's success. How do you help a person become more accountable? Mike tells us!

Nigel used his engineering background to found RashEndZ™ Inc., the maker of REZair™, a brand of skin aeration devices for incontinent garments that maintain optimum skin health. If you're an entrepreneur with a great idea you want to get off the ground, don't miss this chance to learn from someone who's done it! Enjoy.
