When we think about all the little tweaks we can make to improve our daily life as entrepreneurs, it can be easy to lose track of the big picture. That’s where this week’s Hardcore MBA guest, Deri Llewellyn-Davies, comes in – he’s the founder of the ‘strategy on a page‘ method which helps you develop the long-term strategy for your company in a few simple steps.
In the podcast, Deri and I discuss:
- How the passion that gets you started in business can only take you so far, and how strategy pushes you beyond it.
- The vital importance of finding and keeping the right talent.
- How your business needs change when you start making over $100,000 and over $1 million. And how to get yourself on stage as a successful speaker, and how to use that platform to sell to people by serving them.
As you’d expect from someone so interested in strategy, Deri is always thinking one step ahead – he always has the big picture in mind as well as the little details. And he has a special offer for all Hardcore MBA readers – a free copy of his great book BGI Strategy on a Page, which you can sign up for on his website. You’ll also get to find out in advance about upcoming seminars and workshops Deri will be running to teach this method in detail. So take a look once you’ve finished the podcast, and we’ll be back next week with more great tips from top entrepreneurs.
And if you still want to hear more of Deri’s wisdom, you can also listen to his TEDx talk about Everest here.
Wow great job getting Dan to do an interview with you! He is the mentor to Dan Lok, an entrepreneur from Vancouver whom I have come to know quite well. Dan (Lok) talks about the impact Dan Pena had on his life all the time. Now I know why!
You mentioned Napoleon Hill and Outwitting book, you wanted to continue but you were interrupted by Dan, what did you want to say?
