How My 6 Year Old Helped Me in Life – and in Business
Oct 03, 2017
One of the things that I’m truly a master at is beating myself up.
Regardless of how successful I’ve been in business, whenever I would make a mistake I’d start calling myself names like “stupid,” “idiot” and “moron.”

In my experience there are two types of employees that will work for you – people who put stuff on your plate and people who take stuff off your plate.
The key for me used to be to give new employees assignments to learn as quickly as possible which type of person they were.
