In This Episode

Growing your business from a local footprint to a large regional enterprise with national and international recognition is no small feat. Many entrepreneurs, they may see that as the goal that keeps them moving forward. But our guest today, Ralph Stephen, educates us on how achieving that goal takes more than just focusing on financial and business growth. 

With over 20 years of experience growing Royal LePage Atlantic, Ralph shares how important the work he did early on with a certain executive coach helped set the foundation of core values and company culture that has supported the achievements of his business through the good times and bad. Ralph highlights how important it is to look at the bigger picture of what you contribute to your family, your community, and society to stay motivated and keep improving. One part of that for Ralph is being a part of YPO, where he can speak and get feedback from other business leaders that have helped him over the years identify blindspots that he could improve on.

If you are an entrepreneur currently struggling to find motivation and feel like chasing the money drives all of your choices, listen to this chat with Ralph. You’ll get a perspective from a successful business leader about why we all need more values to focus on and help guide us to our goals.
