This is Why You’re Going to Fail. Again.
January 23, 2015 0

This lesson cost me $100,000 (in CASH! From my savings account – not in theoretical “maybe” money … in actual lost dollars) over 3 weeks in January. Team is super important. Especially if you ever want to have a business you can walk away from. We read it everywhere – do the stuff you’re good […]
