Day in the life of an entrepreneur - Developing your Leadership style through family life

Every day we are surrounded by a variety of leaders, from those in business and politics to leaders in the books we read and films we watch. Although our own leadership style is influenced by these individuals, the biggest factor in developing a leadership style starts within the home.
