Quotable Coach: The Entrepreneur’s Secret To Making More Money


To the beginning entrepreneur, success may seem tied to personal sacrifice: “If I want to achieve more, I have to give more.” As your business grows, though, the opposite becomes true: You need to protect your time and attention, reserving it just for those decisions, relationships, and opportunities that need your particular skills and wisdom.

If you don’t do this, your business will be limited to what you, personally, can do on any given day. But add filters between yourself and the world, develop a team whose abilities complement your own, and you’ll suddenly find yourself with more time, and you’ll also unlock a higher level of income.

So it may seem like a paradox, but working less is actually the secret to making more.
