Thoughts on Leadership: Affirmation that “You’re Closer Than You Think Whether You Realize It Or Not”

This week my travels found me in Irvine, California at our HSF Affiliates headquarters for alignment sessions with prospective franchisees from Paris, France and from Maine, Vermont and Minnesota. It was a pleasure to meet with the brokers of these firms, as each is a dynamic leader with a clear set of goals.

My good friend Johnnie Johnson, former All-Pro football player, and CEO and Founder of World Class Coaches, also knows about achieving goals. Johnnie rose from poverty, earned a college scholarship and became a successful professional football player with an extended playing career.

Johnnie’s new book, “You’re Closer Than You Think Whether You Realize It Or Not,” reinforces the important point that any goal is achievable with the rights steps and the right system in place. Check out my review of Johnnie’s book in this video and pick up a copy when you can. I hope you enjoy “You’re Closer Than You Think Whether You Realize It Or Not” as much as I did.

I am immensely grateful for the value the CFO Conference brings me and my company.”

(You can see the evidence of that endeavor here.) The week kicked off, however, in Palm Springs at the National Gay and Lesbian Real Estate Professionals (NAGLREP) 2018 convention, which was a veritable hot spring of inspiration in the California desert.
