Kate Grutzmacher: Building Businesses by Celebrating Others

Owner of The Scout Guide Minneapolis and president of Cities Management, Kate Grutzmacher was invited to spend a morning with Mark and his team in the recording booth and experienced firsthand the fun and knowledge-sharing energy Mark has constructed in his show. Kate shared about how through brand awareness, networking, and connecting people in local markets The Scout Guide has come to be a trusted resource for all things Minneapolis and a platform for local businesses to create a lasting impression in the community. She also shared her mindset that “You don’t build a business; you empower people and people build the business.” What a coincidence because The Curious Builder Podcast’s objective is the same. Bring people together, share stories and experiences, then watch the magic happen.
