For the hundredth episode milestone, my father Joe Cooper joins me to debate the value of a college degree, why the education system in this country has become a self-perpetuating failure, whether or not new technology has limited the current generation’s ability to communicate effectively, and how he and the baby boomers are responsible for screwing everything up.
In addition, we reflect on his 30+ years of experience in sales by discussing the American romanticism of being a business owner, dealing with problem clients, how every ethnic culture has their own way of doing business, why your customer base will always be fluid, and how technology has created higher expectations in the timeliness of communication in both business and life.
