VoiceAmerica Interview with Paul Wiley

Building a Business with Intention and a Firm Openness to Meaningful Chance

Surviving and thriving in today’s business world requires passion, focus, and a healthy supply of determination. It’s not enough simply to have a good idea; rather, executives today must continually refine their business strategy and sometimes their core offerings to respond to the changing demands of the market. As the refinement process ever continues, remaining open to ongoing chance encounters with prospects and opportunities can be a critical strategy for a company to remain viable and vibrant. At the same time, maintaining a sense of intentionality and purpose in everyday activities is important to maintain productivity. In this episode, we talk with a former large-company executive and current entrepreneur about these perspectives that inform his approach to building the start-up company he co-founded.
