Learning from the pros

Amplify Your Business, produced by Amplomedia in partnership with Troy Media, interviews professional entrepreneurs who are currently in the trenches growing their businesses. Through insightful conversations, we will be unpacking their common business challenges and identifying the lessons every business owner needs to learn so they can accelerate their own business growth.

“We get into the good, the bad, and the ugly when it comes to entrepreneurship,” says Lance Johnson, Amplomedia’s founder and marketing veteran and our host. “And it’s the failures that often lead to the greatest lessons, so be prepared to hear some uncomfortable and very REAL conversations about what is required to create successful businesses.”

Today our guest is Jessica Harquail, a partner at Givens LLP. Givens LLP is a future-focused accounting firm based in Edmonton, Alberta, with three offices across the province. They strive to empower entrepreneurs to build profitable, scalable businesses with their innovative technology, business know-how, and solutions-driven thought leadership.

Jessica speaks about dreaming big, knowing your end game, why partnerships make specific industries – such as law and accounting firms – successful, and how other industries can use partnerships to scale their own businesses.
