I just got back from an inspiring couple hours with my friend and Under30CEO contributor Michael Peggs.

What did you do this week? It probably wasn’t what you would have done if it was your last week on earth. What are you doing next week? Wow. Probably pretty depressing when you put it that way. Most people don’t think about death very often. I certainly don’t. The title of this article actually […]
