How do you define a "disruptor," and how does this definition resonate with your understanding or experience in your industry? What are some reasons a business owner might resist the idea of being a disruptor? How can they overcome this resistance?

In this engaging episode of the Lean Out Your Business podcast, I welcomes Jennifer Frye, CEO of Appreciated Asset Business Solutions and creator of the disruptor designer method.
