EPISODE 153: Summary
There are many types of risk in a business. Although the conversation almost always focuses on customers, in reality it is a review of the entire organization where the risks are positive and negative. Positive risks are the lost opportunity costs for focusing on the wrong customers or promoting the wrong offer. Negative risks are those things that will harm or kill the company.
