Here’s the Recap:
Chris Cerrone and Laci Urcioli are the hosts of The Chris Cerrone Show, which is a topped ranked business podcast specifically for entrepreneurs. I have interviewed Chris in the past and I bring him on for the second time, because I believe the 50th episode should be an opportunity for reflection. Chris and Laci open up on why they stopped their podcast, why they hated a section of their audience, and their inability to say no.
