Episode 50 – The One Thing CEO – Geoff Woods

We were super excited to have the chance to converse with today’s guest, CEO Geoff Woods, Vice President of The One Thing company, where Geoff gets to work directly with high-level mentors like Gary Keller, founder of the Keller Williams International Realty Company, and co-author—with Jay Papasan—of The One Thing book.

Geoff is also the host of The Mentee podcast where he interviews inspiring mentors, as a part of his own journey to surround himself with—and learn from—the best. Soon, he will become a mentor on that podcast and be replaced by other mentee hosts.

Geoff Woods is also a husband and father of two young children, residing in the booming entrepreneurial city of Austin, TX.
