Here’s come another two part show.  We discuss how Susan got into construction, what it was like being part of a company going bankrupt, and what she learned during the bankruptcy that lead to her own consulting business and into multiple positions of COO. Susan really gives an in-depth look at what was transpiring as Payton went out of business and She also touches on what a businesses needs to do to be successful. This will be a gateway into Part 2 where she really gets into operations of refining a construction centric business. Susan’s track record has been excellent and is someone you can gain insight from.
