#005: Your Most Precious Asset


“If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.” – Sir Isaac Netwon

In the hectic maze of entrepreneurship, it is easy to get lost amongst the mountains of meetings, phone calls, and never-ending to-do lists.

Without a doubt, time is your most precious asset.  If you don’t put a high value on your time, don’t expect others to do it for you.

In this episode, JP and Ben dive into the importance of picking the right clients, the ramifications of working with the wrong clients, and some tools to help you maximize the use of your time.

You’ll also hear how Ben “wasted” 11 hours, but learned a valuable lesson in the process.
