Robert shares his expertise on working smarter rather than harder, criticizing the glorification of excessive work hours and highlighting the importance of the 80/20 rule. He discusses how to focus on the tasks and customers that matter most, aligning personal and organizational goals with core values, and achieving sustainable growth.

Powerful Quotes from Robert Glazer:

• “Working hard is stupid. You need to figure out the few things that matter, the customers that matter, the product, the pricing, and spend your time on those.”

• “If salesperson A makes 100 calls and brings in $10,000 in sales, while salesperson B makes 50 calls and brings in $100,000 in sales, I’m going to hire salesperson B.”

• “It’s not just about more; it’s about doing things faster, more efficiently, and with less energy.”


Key Takeaways for Entrepreneurs:
