Chris Stanton’s Fun Frank Advice for Self-Made Millionaires & Wealthy Families:

 

  • Keep a cash reserve and keep your burn period low. You may or may not leave your job to start a business, but at least give yourself the option to do so.
  • In running your own business, not only do you have to be a good leader, but you also have to realize that your people are human beings that need to have some fun.
