TGIF baby! Give me some! Today we talk about the E in S.A.V.E.R.S. Many of you have already heard me tell the story of the journalist who followed around the top CEO’s in America for two straight years. He wanted to know what they did from the moment they woke up to the moment they went to bed that made them so successful. There were several things that each of the CEO’s did that were slightly different, however, there were 3 things that EVERY one of shared. One of those three is the topic of today’s blog.
