Having a plan is important, but if you can't adapt quickly and confidently when business conditions change, you could be putting your company at risk.

This week's guest, Brent Gleeson, knows firsthand about the importance of making good decisions on a moment-by-moment basis. Gleeson offers an unparalleled perspective on change. As a Navy SEAL combat veteran, Gleeson has the unique knowledge of how important it is to analyze intelligence, intake situational data, and then be able to throw it all out the window when the situation changes, while still reaching and exceeding your original goals.

Gleeson has applied these lessons to the company he co-founded, Internet Marketing Inc. IMI is one of the fastest-growing online marketing firms in the nation, recently ranking #185 on the Inc. 500 list of fastest-growing private companies in the U.S.

Gleeson is a contributor for Forbes and has made various TV appearances including NBC’s reality super show “Stars Earn Stripes” where he helped his partner Olympic gold medalist Picabo Street earn $50,000 for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce “Hire Our Heroes” program. Gleeson also appeared on a Discovery Channel series and has served as a leadership, entrepreneurial, Internet marketing and military expert on many news shows.

In this segment of Smart Companies Thinking Bigger, Kelly and Brent talk about ways you can reach good decisions even when you're under fire and working with incomplete information.
