Mistakes. We all make ‘em, but that doesn’t mean they’re easy to admit.

On this special edition “Truth, Transparency, and ‘Tails” episode of our Outperform podcast, AP’s Bob Glazer (founder and managing director) and Matt Wool (general manager) open the kimono once again and share some of the biggest business mistakes they’ve made in three key areas: clients, people, and strategic decision-making.

In this episode, Bob and Matt transparently discuss:

  • How they totally bombed a meeting with a potential client, what that prospect told them, and why they still heed that advice today.
  • Mistakes they’ve made with difficult clients.
  • Hard lessons learned from an ineffective hiring process.
  • Why a business coach told them they were acting “weak.”
  • What happened when their business focus looked more like a strobe light than a laser beam.
