About The Show:The goal of The Crossman Conversation is to find solutions for the tough problems and challenges being faced today by those who need a different perspective outside of his/her family or work circles. “We want to hear from young professionals embarking on a career, and business owners or CEOs who need advice on work-life balance, or promoting a better work environment that may mitigate any systemic issues and move toward growth.” – John Crossman
