My number 1 takeaway

What’s the single most important step from our discussion that our listeners need to take away and implement in their businesses?

Understand that IMPACT should be at the beginning of everything you do. Hustle over recognition and impact over everything. If you’re making an impact, the end result should be that you’re improving people’s lives and not how much money you’re making from it.
