Secret – timesaving technique

James and his team sit together and plan their tasks together – the simple things save the most the time. ONWARD!

Daily habit that contributes to success

Spend time with your team and customers – James gets to know his people and understands their needs.

Could have ruined your business – but now – an invaluable learning experience

James' business changed its model and dropped significant revenue – and James tells the whole story here.

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

“Communications – if I can form a picture in my head, how well can I help you form a picture in your head?”

Most influential lesson learned from a mentor

“Ask 'why am I doing this?' – if the answer is 'make money' – something is wrong.”  

Final Round – “Breaking Down the Recipe for Success” 

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

I would have completely redone the way we used our systems – give all your employees access.

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

Set your business free through risk – but don't let your employees live in fear.

How to exceed expectations and add the most value?

An individual would put the needs of others ahead of their own – they are true team players.

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

  1. Develop a peer group – share the downs with them – don't scare your employees.
  2. Have an obvious purpose/mission – define it as clearly as possible.
  3. Learn to articulate clearly what the future holds – pick a specific day and describe what that day is like
