One of the most important buttons you can turn as an entrepreneur is the productivity of your company. That productivity is often determined by the amount of work that your employees can do within the conditions that you create as an entrepreneur.

You spend the majority of your life (around 30 percent) sleeping, but by the dot it means working for most people.

As an entrepreneur you spend a considerable part of your time optimizing your image to customers.
