ABOUT SUCCESS HURRICANE
Hurricane and Success? You don’t ever see those words together. Hurricanes are about speed, growth, change, disruption, and destruction. When you think of those words with a negative mindset, they are not pretty. However, in this book, I am going to show you how to turn the formation and life of a Hurricane into your Success. You are going to learn about the “successful speed” needed to climb the corporate ladder, grow your existing business, or start a new business. You are going to understand what “successful growth” is all about and how it becomes so massive it duplicates into new Success Hurricanes. I’m going to teach you about “successful changes” that are needed in your careers and relationships to achieve the highest levels of success. You are going to learn what “successful disruption” is all about and how it can continue to grow your hurricane to a new category level. Lastly, once you put all these steps together, you are going to impose “successful destruction” on your competition so that you win and they lose!
This is book is going to hit you like a Category 5 Hurricane with Success strategies that will change your life just like they changed mine. Some of the strategies that I reference are well- known business strategies. “Reading” success strategies and “applying” them are two very different things. Just because you know how to read a recipe doesn’t mean you can cook the meal. In this book, I’ll break down some of these well-known business strategies that have worked for me and show you how and why they worked. I’m also going to introduce you to some new success strategies that you’ve never heard or seen before and show you how to use them to achieve Category 5 Success.
