It seems like some people are just born with “it”.
The Automatic Entrepreneur is a podcast created by our friend, Kasey Luft, from Clientric CRM Consulting.
During the downtime of 2020, Kasey started to realize from his own entrepreneurial journey that there are some pretty incredible background stories of how people in his inner circle, and the business community of the Thompson Okanagan came to be.
The Automatic Entrepreneur is Kasey’s passion project, a podcast that explores how each guest started their own business, what drove them to start, how they operate, and what tools, tips, and tricks they use to operate their business in an efficient way.
