I don't usually repost stuff. Actually, I never repost stuff. But there's this one short article I stumbled upon at Business Insider that hit a complete home run with me and I knew I had to share it with you guys. The article's so true. It's so accurate. It's so relevant to anyone who's doing anything that can be considered "business."
