Entrepreneurial Lessons From Donald Trump & The US Execution Of Osama Bin Laden

We live in the midst of historically unpredictable times. For some of us, these times arouse emotions of fear and uncertainty. For others – it’s excitement and opportunity. If we were to be completely honest with ourselves, the reality is likely a mixture of all of those emotions and so much more.
