Starting and growing your own business

I recently attended a presentation by Jack Daly an American based Sales Trainer. Jack is impressive on a number of fronts.

Chances are, Jack Daly is older than you (he’s 66), is in better shape, and lives in a warmer climate (he moved to Southern California 20 years ago). 
He probably has more golf than you, runs more marathons (71, including last month’s Ice Marathon in Antarctica), and has clearer goals than you (his 2015 objective: making a difference, by being physically fit, productive and balanced with fun).

He’s probably more determined than you are. He’s always dreamed of participating in the world championship Ironman Triathlon in Kona, Hawaii: a gruelling test of swimming, cycling and running. Eight years ago, he decided to go for it. The first thing he did was learn to swim. He hired a personal swimming coach, because that’s what it takes to succeed, he says. “I have five coaches in my personal life, three business coaches, and six Ironman coaches. Model the masters.”

The entrepreneur turned self-employed speaker and sales trainer 
doesn't say these things to brag. Jack Daly wants to excel at everything. And if you buy into that philosophy, he contends you’ll win. Because building a business, says Daly, is all about clarityfocussystems and processes. Get the basics right, and the competition will only ever see your back. 

From Jack and John, have a successful week.
