I visit with a steady stream of business owners and CEOs as a business coach. Nine times out of ten, I find that they are overcomplicating their lives and need to do LESS rather than MORE to improve their results. One of the richest men in the world, Warren Buffett had a 5/25 rule. Write

My mom had a multi-millionaire baker in her. My family believed her baked goods were out of this world.
