John is a serial entrepreneur, business coach and Mentor, who I have been working with for nearly two years. He has helped me set up Innovate to Success and the business that it is today, pretty much in the evenings and weekends.

Was it easy – No! But it was quicker than doing it on my own.

You will learn in this episode, how John built, developed and sold many businesses over the last 20 years. (And the mistakes he made)

John lives by the ethos that variety is the spice of life in business and you should live every day like it is your last. This trait resonates in John’s passion for Motocross where he is still active on the UK Rally scene into his 50’s!

We also discussed the importance of taking risks.

You will also learn his view on why people don’t take action and John puts this down to three key elements;

  • Protection of your Ego
  • Your priorities and Environment
  • Being unconsciously Incompetent – (not knowing what you don’t know)

John also talks about how important it is to have a balance in growing and in building your future.

The quickest route to any kind of success in Business is breaking down your ego and I guess the day that I asked for help building my business was when I realised that I couldn’t do this all on my own.

This is no different for many of my listeners, who just need that guiding hand and confidence to push your boundaries. This episode will help you learn from John and some of his wisdom.
