Guest Bio

Mario Nawfal / Founder & CEO of The IBC Group

Smart work is predominantly doing the RIGHT thing. No matter how hard you grind, if your compass is off, you are screwed. The number of people I have come across who have been hustling for years and don't seem to move forward is sad…. And what's more sad is how obvious it is that their compass was way off! This is close to insanity, doing the same thing again and again expecting a different outcome...
