“FOR THE BEST RETURN on your money, empty your purse into your head.” Ben Franklin said that. I just returned from Darren Hardy’s High Performance Forum in La Jolla. A wide range of business leaders and entrepreneurs from all over the world attended. All attendees had a few things in common: A passion for what they are doing, a teachable spirit, and a willingness to share their expertise with others. Darren's training is excellent, and the synergy with other entrepreneurs was the icing on the cake.
