Making money has never been easy. With the world changing so quickly, building a business and navigating these rapidly evolving times is tougher than ever. However, it is still one of the most rewarding things you can do. Often it's the counter intuitive thinking that matters most. This talk will give some candid advice on starting, operating and getting ahead.
