032: Mark Babbitt: Leadership, Culture, and Bias for Action

Mark Babbitt, leadership and career mentor, helps develop startup leaders and fix organizations that have lost their way. In this episode, he shares his approach to improving leaders and culture at startups and long-standing companies. He discusses the mentor first mindset, social media, vulnerability, and the importance of a bias for action. This is one of those episodes where there is far too much to describe here so take a few minutes to listen and learn.

I tried NutriFitt’s whey protein supplement after meeting the founder and hearing his journey and commitment to quality. I like to support up and coming businesses so I gave it a try and was amazed. It mixes immediately and the chocolate flavor actually tastes like chocolate, not like some chemical engineering committee’s overdone attempt. It has no artificial sweeteners, colors, or preservatives. Plus, it includes probiotics and is easy on the stomach.

The true taste test? My teenage daughter even likes it.

There are a lot of supplement brands on the market and NutriFitt is my favorite.
