11 Simple Ways You Can Live A Great Life, Personally & Professionally

Life gets in the way they say. There’s never enough time.

And to that, I say bullshit.

I’ve been there. When I started taking over my company, I was forced to figure out what business really was.

16 hours a day clawing and scratching.

I said yes to an Account Manager role. I said yes to any client that would be crazy enough to listen to my half-assed sales pitch. I said yes to any and all deals and targets that crossed me.

I said yes to a Director of Purchasing promotion. I said yes to becoming the President.

And I said yes to becoming CEO.

Do You Feel Like Shit? Here’s The Reason Why And It May Surprise You

You feel like shit.

And in a lot of ways, you actually may be full of shit — don’t let me lose you here.
