Secret – timesaving technique

John does six professional tasks and two personal tasks every weekday, six personal tasks and two professional tasks on Saturday, and then he's off on Sunday -- make it eight for the day. ONWARD!

Daily habit that contributes to success

John had to have a hard conversation with his brother who he was in business with -- and John tells the whole story here.

Most critical skill you think business owners need to master to be successful

"Communicate your value."

Most influential lesson learned from a mentor

Final Round – “Breaking Down the Recipe for Success”

What systems would you go back and put into place sooner?

I would have developed a stronger backbone -- don't be afraid to give clients pushback.

What one strategy or “recipe” would compound into big wins for business owners?

Get out of the way and let your team work -- the killer to productivity is too many managers and too many meetings.

What strategy would you recommend new business owners focus on to best ensure success?

  1. Know when and where to draw a line in the sand
  2. Be prepared to adjust and adapt
