A Drunk, Anxious, and Depressed CEO: The Obvious Path To Business Success

Having recently started my fourth business and designing my fifth, I can claim some reasonable understanding of what it takes to run a successful business. A business is nothing but a coordination of systems that ultimately results in an exchange of value.
