The Cowboy Perspective an exploration of grit, servant leadership, and business philosophy with high performers!

Oct 15, 2020

Welcome back Y'all! This episode I sat down with Anne-Marie Roerink, the Founder at 201 Analytics. We talk about how much data matters in something as niche as picking out your own cut of meat at the grocery store, life in Holland, how her country responded to COVID, some basic lessons in Dutch, the harsh reality of being an entrepreneur, and the bizarre overlap between data in the meat industry and the candy industry. Enjoy!
