Decision-Making for Driven Serial Entrepreneurs—with Ken Bator - EP 74

How do driven entrepreneurs with multiple projects keep all of their plates spinning? How do they make choices about who to work with and what to say YES to? How do they prioritize and manage the day-to-day amidst the busyness and craziness of running more than one business?

Ken Bator is the founder of Bator Training & Consulting, a firm that serves service-based businesses in creating extraordinary experiences for their customers, clients or members. He is also the cofounder and CEO of the Police Officers’ Credit Union Association (POCUA), a nonprofit designed to facilitate collaboration among executives of institutions serving law enforcement. Ken has 25 years of experience in marketing and business development, and he is committed to supporting his clients in the areas of branding, culture building and strategic planning.

Today, Ken sits down with Emerald to explain how he came to serve police officers through the POCUA, discussing the organization’s initial intent to provide a forum for collaboration and how it has evolved to support law enforcement officers and their families with their psychological, emotional, physical and financial needs. He shares how getting fired from his corporate VP position allowed him to try his hand at entrepreneurship and how his passion for speaking, writing and facilitating led to the creation of Bator Training & Consulting. Listen in for Ken’s W-I-N approach to decision-making and learn how being upfront about the value he provides allows him to say YES to the right clients!
