In this episode, Jesse interviews Chuck about strategic planning, a very important skill needed to run a business. Chuck goes over the two most important factors of planning needs: clarity on the vision and how the process will be executed. He also states that success requires focus, therefore it needs planning. One technique for planning used by Chuck is the 90-day cadence in which he gathers the team every 90 days to talk about what happened, what was accomplished, and what are the next steps to the future.
