Saying "no" today means you can say "yes" tomorrow -- John takes control of his schedule by saying "no."
John had to have a hard conversation with his brother who he was in business with -- and John tells the whole story here.
"Communicate your value."
"It's not just luck."
I would have developed a stronger backbone -- don't be afraid to give clients pushback.
Get out of the way and let your team work -- the killer to productivity is too many managers and too many meetings.
