In This Episode:

 In this episode, I interviewed Derek Speer, a construction project manager from Florida that works in the commercial construction sector. Derek's background is heavy in critical facilities. We talked about what it takes to be successful, by being prepared. Being prepared for meetings, site visits, and travel - some up-front thoughts go a long way.

I will be putting together a checklist of the items we discussed and post it on the website's resource page and will update these notes with a link once complete.
