Chasing the bottom line

Download to read offline

This is a talk I gave at Tufts University at a class for the Entrepreneurial Leadership Studies department. It focused on being aware of the time that passes every day, how you choose to spend it, and how you should be choosing to spend it. It's about finding your "Bottom Line" and letting it dictate how you spend your time. - Albert Nichols
