Experienced intrapreneur, executive, and tech disruptor Sean Ahlum speaks about succeeding within the framework of a larger organization. We cover a wide range of interesting and helpful topics like intrapreneurship, innovation accounting, lean startup methodology, managing up, white spaces, unique selling propositions (USP), mindset, sharing ideas, and finding the right team.
While we focus on Step 2 of The Pronto Path, we cover topics that touch on many more steps. The Activation step does not only apply to tax business owners. It applies to anyone working at a company. Employees can act entrepreneurially, too, and reap the benefits. In fact, it is a large part of being a successful tax professional.
A lot of people who have a job think they should not be entrepreneurial, disruptive, or take any risks. Sean takes a different approach and discusses the reason his new mindset takes him further in business.
