In his 90-minute video series, Howard shares what he’s learned about business leadership and being an entrepreneur.
I love hearing from Billionaires on the inside journey that they take to build companies. I would like to hear more about the pitfalls and mistakes as well as the right decisions and advice.
I have learnt the power of pouring your heart to the company, courage to make hard decisions and the humane nature of treating employees
Learned a bunch and took pages of notes to apply to my own company. Awesome.
