One of the truths that is evident as you take on more responsibility is that you need to be fit and healthy to be able to operate at your best. If you are an entrepreneur, business owner or senior executive you always need to be operating at your best!
Today’s business environment is incredibly hostile and makes huge demands on everybody, but the people at the top need to be able to set the standard.
