Scott Weaver on a Dad's Perspective on Being an Entrepreneur

Scott Weaver joins me as we talk about the differences in how men and women often approach entrepreneurship.

40 min / Published

Scott Weaver is not a mom!  But he is a dad.  Men and women don't always see things the same way (shocker, I know!) and Scott joins me as we talk about the differences in how men and women often approach entrepreneurship. As we understand those differences, we can use that new knowledge to communicate better.

This is actually a continuation of a conversation started on Scott's podcast about the frontier where home and business meet. (You can hear that here.)

Meet our Guest Scott:

Scott Weaver works with business owners helping them plan and manage growth in their business. He does this through a process that gives clarity and certainty to what the business is focused on and then pulls together all the complex moving parts of their business into clear processes that move their business forward. That's a lot of business. He has been married to his wife who he calls his CSO, or his Chief Sanity Officer - I like that. He's been married for about 25 years, and together they call Tennessee home.
