Secret – timesaving technique
Shawn notes his three most critical priorities every day — make sure you’ve got your priorities straight. ONWARD!
Daily habit that contributes to success
Exercise, call people you don’t know, and have a meaningful conversation with someone — Shawn does all these activities daily to work on his health — both physical and mental.
Could have ruined your business – but now – an invaluable learning experience
Shawn parted ways with a company he was doing business with — his income slowed way down because of it — and Shawn tells the whole story here.
Most critical skill you think business owners need to master to be successful
“You need to become adept at prioritizing time.”
Most influential lesson learned from a mentor
“Build and sustain confidence — be comfortable being bold.”
Final Round – “Breaking Down the Recipe for Success”
What systems would you go back and put into place sooner?
I would have been much more diligent at sustaining and keeping in touch with relationships that I’ve built — as well as being bold and reaching out directly to people that I could help.
What one strategy or “recipe” would compound into big wins for business owners?
Communication is missing in most organizations — keep the communication flowing by having regular meetings.
How to exceed expectations and add the most value?
An individual would demonstrate caring for the customer.
What strategy would you recommend new business owners focus on to best ensure success?
- Always be clear on what the fundamentals are for growing your business — and make sure someone is always focused on them
- Be genuine
- Be persistent — you can never, ever, ever give up
