John’s tips to Double revenue in 500 less working hours:

Ruthlessly eliminate excuses
Release mooring lines – shift your paradigm
Inner Market ( goals, alignment, quality, team ) vs. outer market ( Dow Jones, GFC, Reserve bank )
Double your prospecting activities
5 face to face appointments daily.

Some other key points from John’s presentation:

Nadia Comanechi – “My mind is always full of getting it exactly right”
