Can I get a Oh Yeah!!!!!! What’s up Enterprisers, welcome to episode 83 of the Enterprise NOW! Podcast where we educate, motivate, inspire, and transform business owners and entrepreneurs into success. That’s what we do, we help folks launch, grow, and maximize!

In this episode, I talk with Thor Conklin of the Peak Performance Group. Thor’s entrepreneurial addiction started at age 13 when he became a caddie. Walking, talking and asking non-stop questions of the business elite, had a profound influence on his career of studying and modeling Peak Performers.

In our conversation, we talk about asking great questions, crushing limitations, and seeing patterns in people and business. We chat about deciding vs committing and having no excuses when executing your mission.

Now, before we dig in, here is a short message from our sponsor.
