Being able to admit failure after so many attempts to fame, isn’t an easy task!  Please join us in this real-talk episode with Marc LaFleur, CEO & Founder of truLOCAL.  Marc shares his backstory to help us paint a picture of how things went for him before truLOCAL.  Having locally sourced meat & knowing where your food comes from is very important to both Marc & Lance.  Whether you’re a meat-eater, vegetarian or vegan, take note of how they show importance to everyone’s take on this.  Hear how Dragon’s Den isn’t “just a show” and how important it is to know your business's numbers for success.  Marc shares why having timeframes, routines and a vison/goal(s) are so important.  Recognize the importance of celebrating every win in your life, no matter how big or small.  Allow Marc to explain how to build a culture within your environment.



Marc answers with, “You’re stronger than you are!”
