Listen to Episode 032 with Jim Palmer here:
You work your entire 20s and 30s so that you can climb the corporate ladder and by the time you're 40 years old, you're the Vice President of a major company.
That's when you made it right?
You'll must have a great salary, amazing benefits, but most importantly, you'll feel like you have job security.
Jim Palmer did everything right and was a VP by the time he turned 40 years old. Yet, when he turned 41, his position was eliminated.
He was unemployed.
And, believe it or not, finding another job was hard - even though he had been a VP.
On top of it all, while Jim was trying to get things back on track, he was diagnosed with melanoma.
But, he kept hustling.
He kept putting one foot in front of the other and ignored the rest.
"Stay focused, kick all distractions to the curb, and sleep a little less if you have to."
And, the day before his surgery, he had the right job offer and was close to closing the deal. He went into surgery with the peace of mind that once he was done, a new job was waiting for him.
Surgery went according to plan and Jim was sent home to recover. As he was relaxing on the couch one Tuesday morning of September 2001, he watched 2 planes hit the Twin Towers in NYC.
And as you can imagine, Jim's job offer was pulled.
He was unemployed again.
But, he had one big skill: the ability to decide.
So, he decided to start his own business.
"Highly successful people have the ability to decide. Indecision in your business is like an anchor."
Since that big decision, Jim has become a highly sought after marketing and business coach. He's best known internationally as ‘The Newsletter Guru’ and the creator of No Hassle Newsletters, the ultimate ‘done-for-you’ newsletter course.
And, if you're an entrepreneur, Jim's book "DECIDE" will change your life because as entrepreneurs, we face hundreds of choices every day. And, deciding, making a decision - yes or no, but not maybe, is actually really difficult for most of us.
"When we make decisions, we are opening ourselves up to criticism and most people cower at that."
This interview is all about the importance and business-building power that comes when you use your ability to decide as effectively as possible.
