About the Book
Everywhere I look, people are constantly telling me to hustle harder and work more as a way to make everything work. What if work is broken, and trying to do it all is a fallacy? When I approached my business and work with a new mindset—one of simplicity and focus, rather than panic and overwhelm—things started changing. This book is an antidote to the hustle mania, and an opportunity to do less in your business by focusing on only a few things at a time.
