Richard Gauder has to be one of the most generous people I’ve ever met. 

I was fortunate to cross paths with Richard VERY early on as I launched my business in 2009. He took me under his wing to introduce me to a TON of people in his network and really helped me to start and grow my career.
Always insightful and inspirational, I asked Richard to join me to talk about:
  • How CMS Web Solutions has thrived over 20 years in an industry that tends to have a lot of burnout.
  • How accessible businesses are proven to be more profitable

Please excuse the technical (audio) errors for the first part of the chat. His lovely wife, Sandi comes in to save the day:
