You've probably heard the expression that you need to work smarter, not harder. But, in this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Peter Voogd explains why he doesn't hold with that maxim. Namely, it's because there's no replacement for being willing to do the work. If you're constantly looking to take shortcuts, rather than fit as much as you possibly can into the 24 hours of every day, then you won't be able to compete against those who are.

Remember: You're not just competing with the boutique shop down the road. You're on the same playing field as Elon Musk, Oprah Winfrey and LeBron James. The good news is that they are limited to 24 hours a day just the same as you.

Watch the video to learn how you can maximize that time and get ahead of your competition.
