TGM Classic | Tony Lillios | How to Pivot Successfully When Market Conditions Become Unfavorable

On today’s show, we interview entrepreneur, designer, endurance athlete, and certified Integral Coach, Tony Lillios who shares with us his incredible life story, his many tribulations, and successes.

In this episode, Tony and I talked about:

  • How Tony started the journey to success in developing his own company
  • What happens when a business starts plateauing, the market becomes harder and more expensive
  • How Tony transitioned from owning his company to starting his integral coaching career
  • Why core values are grossly underthought through
  • And other topics…

Meet Tony:

Certified Integral Coach bringing forth his worlds of being an entrepreneur, designer, and endurance athlete serving others looking to invest in creating new possibilities.

Tony works with individuals and small teams looking to unlock more possibilities when feeling stuck. His most productive relationships are with clients that have tried to address what isn’t working or what they aspire towards and have come up short.

As a father, Ironman athlete, marathon swimmer, and entrepreneur, Tony brings together his own unfolding developmental experience and work with clients in crafting and supporting their own personal integrated transformational path.
