Is there actually something to the old adage, “dress for the job you want, not the job you have,” or “fake it till you make it”…we investigate the SCIENCE behind how BRANDS can actually influence performance. Maybe BRANDS actually influence all of us more than we attribute credit!

Next up, Tommy + Todd discuss an important and relevant issue that all entrepreneurs (and most PEOPLE for that matter) have struggled with in their lives: When is it time to bring an END to something?

This one is a must read and not just for business owners! This book is not just about business, but about relationships, friendships, careers, projects, EVERYTHING…how do you decide when it’s time END SOMETHING + MOVE ON?
