The Liberated CEO principles allow me to free myself from counterproductive details and distractions, to fulfill a goal of importance to my family, while meeting the highest management standards of my firm.   By using these principles, you’ll transform how you manage and operate your professional services or small business so that you gain more control, freedom, and wealth, as our subtitle suggests.”
