The Secret of Becoming a Better Leader

because most of us aren't doing it right

When you’re the solopreneur, every decision, task, and responsibility falls on your shoulders. Yours alone.

In actuality, I’ve taught my boys how to fix their own breakfast, within reason. Toast, cereal, and oatmeal are typical breakfast fare in the Jett house.

Also, I don’t super care that they ate cookies for breakfast…but I thought it made a funny meme.

And for any health nut naysayers, here’s to coffee full of creamer, donuts, frosting-less cupcakes called muffins, danishes, bagels with cream cheese schmears, biscuits and gravy, and all other delicious “breakfast” food. I’m including cookies in the list now. 🙂
