Let me give you two scenarios:
1. It's about two hours after lunch and you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror. You notice you have food wedged into your front teeth, and you just got out of an important meeting, and no one said anything! You feel embarrassed that you were walking around like that, but kind of glad no one said anything.
2. You walk into an important meeting shortly after lunch and your boss shouts out across the table that you have some food in your teeth. Your face goes red that he announced it in front of everyone, but you are glad to have someone tell you the painful truth.
Which scenario would you prefer? If you picked two and you have a business or are looking to start a business then rush out (or go to Amazon) and buy "The Entrepreneur Equation" by Carol Roth with an amazing foreword by Michael Port (It is also a New York Times Best Seller!).
Carol holds back no punches, she'll let you know if you have "Spinach in your teeth" but she is also extremely helpful in this book. There are two chapters that really stuck out for me; Chapter 12 - When the Heck Are You Going to Have Time to Start a Business? and Chapter 19 - The "Secret" is Hard Work"
