Along the way, you'll learn from real-world examples and relatable stories, and discover a wealth of applicable advice on starting, managing, and growing your own enterprise. -Discover your best life, then build a path to achieve it -Learn how other entrepreneurs have adapted their lives to achieve their goals -Find out what's really standing between you and your dreams -Rid yourself of ineffective thinking patterns and develop habits that actually help you Do Business Better is the go-to guide for business people, entrepreneurs, and the self-employed looking to jumpstart their journey and build their dreams into reality. If your goal is prosperity, longevity, and a life and business on your terms, this book is for you.
