Inspiring!

DrSandi| Nov 12, 2020
This podcast has great information for anyone in business or thinking of starting a business. It’s not just for COOs! Great guests and Cameron is a terrific interviewer!

A real view under the hood of business

Gordiegolf88| Jun 23, 2020
Everyone talks to the CEO about their vision and big dreams. This show talks to the people who actually runs the businesses. Brilliant and great question which will help CEOs and COOs grow their operations. Listen, yet more importantly execute.

Game-changing mindset

PDNHE| Feb 28, 2020
Cameron’s books and podcast have influenced massive positive changes to my business. Thank you, Cameron!

My first review!

GIMARTIN69| Nov 22, 2019
I love this podcast! I’m early on the road to executive level leadership and this really gives my brain the workout it needs. 

The host is excellent at pulling out the stories and the nitty-gritty that the Operators go through in their lives, careers, and on a daily basis. 

I remember thinking about two years ago that it’d be awesome to have a study presented on how these people spend their time. I found a few, but this is such a better idea that this podcast solves: Let them tell you themselves. 

Hint: If you really want a brain workout, jump back and forth between this one and the CMO podcast.

Learn from the best…

MissMeridith| Apr 3, 2019
It’s so nice to hear real life stories from other COOs who have been there and experienced the same dilemmas, and Cameron’s advice is spot on.  

Soon to be your new binge!

aubkateal | Apr 3, 2019
“I’m so grateful for this podcast! I love the guests and you get a real feel for what it is like to be the Second-in-Command of a company. This podcast will equip you with the tools and mindset needed to run a successful business, whether you are the CEO, the Second-in-Command, or an employee. Give it a listen and be sure to start from the beginning.”

BRILLIANT!

mmberg1| Jan 27, 2019
“This podcast is brilliant! So diverse, innovative, and inspirational in this community for the c-suite! Thank you!”

My New Favorite Podcast

Mollymariephoto| Dec 17, 2018
“This is. my new favorite podcast. I love getting a real inside peak at the day to day operations of successful COOs and thier companies. Now if somebody would just create something like this but with CEOs. Regardless, I love this podcast.”

Most Practical Podcast

Christina2234| Jul 28, 2018
“I’ve learned so much practical information through these podcasts. Cameron Herold has done a great job choosing smart and experienced COOs who generously share their wins as well as their struggles. The COOs share actual systems and processes that have been effective – it’s not just general ideas that are shared, instead it’s concrete systems that are used. Can’t wait for the next one!! Keep em coming Cameron Herold – I’m learning so much!”

Legendary

Christopher Lochhead| Jun 26, 2018
“Cameron Herold is the real deal. Direct, provocative and clear in his thinking. In a world of BS, wanna be management gurus Cameron Herold stands alone. This is a must subscribe!”

First In Class

MaeSteigler| Jun 19, 2018
“In each podcast, Cameron does an unparalleled job of presenting tools and insights from incredible industry leaders offering coaching strategies of his own. Tons of value and highly recommended to anyone wanting to grow their business and accelerate success”

Innovative Visionary Leader

Theimpactmike| Apr 9, 2018
“There is a reason Cameron is one of the world’s most sought after speakers and coaches to CEOs: He has a unique understanding of the process of crafting vision, creating culture and building organizations. This podcast gives listeners a peak into the minds of some of the most brilliant chief operators in the business world.”

CEOs and COOs, MUST listen podcast

BradJohnson25| Apr 8, 2018
“Our company consults financial advisors from all across the country and I’ve seen first hand the tremendous impact Cameron and his ideas and systems have had on our clients. In our business, there is no shortage of ideas, just a shortage of execution and that’s what I. love about Cameron’s teaching style, he simplifies what often times seems complex to the level where it can be acted upon. Just have your COOs subscribe and thank me later.”

Nobody knows COOs like Cameron

Clay Hebert| Apr 8, 2018
“Cameron understands why businesses work… because he understands how humans work. He’s not a theory guy. Everything he teachers, he’s done himself, in the trenches…and he continues to study the best. CEOs typically get all the press, focus and podcast interviews. In second-in-command, Cameron decodes the insight from the top COOs in the world. Only listen if you want to streamline your business, understand your revenue and increase your profits.”

Want To Be A Featured Guest On The Second-In-Command Podcast?

Game-changing mindset

PDNHE| Feb 28, 2020
Cameron’s books and podcast have influenced massive positive changes to my business. Thank you, Cameron!

My first review!

GIMARTIN69| Nov 22, 2019
I love this podcast! I’m early on the road to executive level leadership and this really gives my brain the workout it needs. 

The host is excellent at pulling out the stories and the nitty-gritty that the Operators go through in their lives, careers, and on a daily basis. 

I remember thinking about two years ago that it’d be awesome to have a study presented on how these people spend their time. I found a few, but this is such a better idea that this podcast solves: Let them tell you themselves. 

Hint: If you really want a brain workout, jump back and forth between this one and the CMO podcast.

Learn from the best…

MissMeridith| Apr 3, 2019
It’s so nice to hear real life stories from other COOs who have been there and experienced the same dilemmas, and Cameron’s advice is spot on.  

Soon to be your new binge!

aubkateal | Apr 3, 2019
“I’m so grateful for this podcast! I love the guests and you get a real feel for what it is like to be the Second-in-Command of a company. This podcast will equip you with the tools and mindset needed to run a successful business, whether you are the CEO, the Second-in-Command, or an employee. Give it a listen and be sure to start from the beginning.”

BRILLIANT!

mmberg1| Jan 27, 2019
“This podcast is brilliant! So diverse, innovative, and inspirational in this community for the c-suite! Thank you!”

My New Favorite Podcast

Mollymariephoto| Dec 17, 2018
“This is. my new favorite podcast. I love getting a real inside peak at the day to day operations of successful COOs and thier companies. Now if somebody would just create something like this but with CEOs. Regardless, I love this podcast.”

Most Practical Podcast

Christina2234| Jul 28, 2018
“I’ve learned so much practical information through these podcasts. Cameron Herold has done a great job choosing smart and experienced COOs who generously share their wins as well as their struggles. The COOs share actual systems and processes that have been effective – it’s not just general ideas that are shared, instead it’s concrete systems that are used. Can’t wait for the next one!! Keep em coming Cameron Herold – I’m learning so much!”

Legendary

Christopher Lochhead| Jun 26, 2018
“Cameron Herold is the real deal. Direct, provocative and clear in his thinking. In a world of BS, wanna be management gurus Cameron Herold stands alone. This is a must subscribe!”

First In Class

MaeSteigler| Jun 19, 2018
“In each podcast, Cameron does an unparalleled job of presenting tools and insights from incredible industry leaders offering coaching strategies of his own. Tons of value and highly recommended to anyone wanting to grow their business and accelerate success”

Innovative Visionary Leader

Theimpactmike| Apr 9, 2018
“There is a reason Cameron is one of the world’s most sought after speakers and coaches to CEOs: He has a unique understanding of the process of crafting vision, creating culture and building organizations. This podcast gives listeners a peak into the minds of some of the most brilliant chief operators in the business world.”

CEOs and COOs, MUST listen podcast

BradJohnson25| Apr 8, 2018
“Our company consults financial advisors from all across the country and I’ve seen first hand the tremendous impact Cameron and his ideas and systems have had on our clients. In our business, there is no shortage of ideas, just a shortage of execution and that’s what I. love about Cameron’s teaching style, he simplifies what often times seems complex to the level where it can be acted upon. Just have your COOs subscribe and thank me later.”

Nobody knows COOs like Cameron

Clay Hebert| Apr 8, 2018
“Cameron understands why businesses work… because he understands how humans work. He’s not a theory guy. Everything he teachers, he’s done himself, in the trenches…and he continues to study the best. CEOs typically get all the press, focus and podcast interviews. In second-in-command, Cameron decodes the insight from the top COOs in the world. Only listen if you want to streamline your business, understand your revenue and increase your profits.”
