“When I saw Ron Carson at LPL Focus 2015 in Boston last month, I was excited to learn that he has partnered with Scott Ford, CEO of Cornerstone Wealth, to write a new book called The Sustainable Edge.To be honest, I took a copy as a courtesy to Ron, and because I read anything even tangentially related to productivity, but I wasn’t expecting to wholeheartedly enjoy the book.”
