89. Becoming THE Choice & Avoiding The Trap of Success | Gene Hammett

Nov 9, 2017 | 0 comments

We know that you’re a high achiever. We know that you want to have a thriving career and a vibrant personal life – and you want to leave a legacy that will last.   However, so many of us are focused on the wrong thing – being “successful” – and the actions we are taking today are leading us down the wrong path. We’re struggling too, and we’re committed to figuring it out so that we can serve you at a higher level.   To help, Gene Hammett shares his story: a case study of what happens when you go down the wrong path, lose everything, and then make a course correction. If you pay attention (and then take action), you’ll be better prepared to avoid the trap of success and position your business as THE choice for your customers.   Join us for our first live event: What: The ONE Thing Goal-Setting Retreat When: November 30th, 2017 – December 1st, 2017 Where: Austin, Texas How: the1thing.com/event
