Tim has always been a passionate entrepreneur, but a brush with death has completely changed the way he runs his business in terms of delegation, directness, and tolerance, among other things.
Tim Loney's story started out the same as most entrepreneurs - until one day, a near-death experience forced him to rethink his priorities and life choices.
