Best Advice I Ever Received:

When presented with a challenge, ask the question, “I don’t know, what do you think we should do?”

Best Advice I’d Give To Someone Who Wants To Build A $10m+ Business:

Narrow your focus. Most business owners try to do too many things and spread resources over too many opportunities and initiatives. The most successful companies I’ve ever built and ever coached have narrowed their resources to focus on their very best opportunities so that they put more of their best time, talent money and attention on those fewer opportunities that have a bigger impact and can make a bigger difference.
