Best Advice I Ever Received:
Judgement is an emotional reaction, which clouds your thinking, diverts your focus, and steals your energy. Gaining the skill and discipline to release judgements is the single most beneficial behavior to increase your success in business and in life. = What I learned at USM
Best Advice I’d Give To Someone Who Wants To Build A $10m+ Business:
You can’t be an “A Player” and run a 10MM business. At that point you MUST be an A+ Leader, because you will no longer be doing 95% of the task type work, and you will be leading, mentoring, structuring and cultivating a culture where people step up and do their best work
