Thomas turns off his phone, turns the notifications off on his computer, and closes the door -- eliminate distractions so that you can focus on what needs to get done. ONWARD!
Keep track of your important ideas -- Thomas writes down his thoughts and then implements the important ones into his CRM.
Thomas had to close his doors when he couldn't find insurance after the industry was impacted by 9/11 -- and Thomas tells the whole story here.
"Financial discipline -- at the end of the day you need be profitable."
"Be tenacious and don't give up."
I would have been more focused on a specific service offering and do that better than anyone -- don't try to be all things to all people.
Focus on short term objectives and break them down into tasks.
