Lendio
President and COO

Mike: Hey everyone, I’m Mike Sullivan. Thanks for joining me. Today with us is our subject matter expert from Lendio. Typically, we have Brock Blake here. Today we have with us the President and COO, Levi King. Levi’s going to talk to us today about some experiences he’s had with the uncomfortable subject of letting people go. There are different circumstances that lead to this. Levi’s going to talk to us about some of those and some of his learnings over the years. So Levi, thanks for joining us and over to you.

Levi: Today, I want to just give a few pieces of advice. When I say advice, obviously in business there are a lot of times you can do things right or wrong, but there are a lot more scenarios where there are two or three or more ways to do something right and just as many ways to do it wrong. Anyone who ever gives me advice in business I typically try to look at it through the lens of how relevant is that to what I do. So that’s my disclaimer before I give any advice on this topic.
