For the last 22 years my background has been in sales and leadership. I became the Managing Director of Dalycom in 2014 and during the next 2 years the business grew by 60%.
You can never overestimate the power of having the ‘right people’ ‘sitting on the right seats’. In Dalycom we took the difficult decision to changes some seats around and our business never looked back. I developed a team who allowed me to lead and a team who can now take ownership and accountability over what they do.
Values, Culture, Structure, Planning and Delegation is what helps a business succeed and having a team of the right people is also pivotal to its success.
Many people have asked. If you already have Dalycom why create the TTCEO?
To be honest. I fell out of love with Dalycom. I started to resent the fact the business had taken over my life. I lived, sleeped and breathed the business, even to the detriment of my family and my marriage.
I allowed the business to take over me. However there came a point enough was enough and I just needed to put the breaks on and start to make changes to my life which I did.
I am proof that from working a 60 hour + week, it is possible to change what you do and the business still survive. I now work approx. 1 to 2 days a week in Dalycom and the rest of the time I do what I love doing helping other business owners move towards a more fulfilling and rewarding life and one that is not just about work. This is why I created the TTCEO.
You don’t always have to work hard to be successful. The way to success is not by doing more, but by being smart. I learnt this the hard way.
I now through my own experience help other business owners achieve similar growth and changes within their business. My aim is to allow leaders to grow, to gain more success whilst also maintaining time and enjoyment for other things in life.
We do this by growing the team. I am so passionate about team and this is why I get so involved in succession planning and leadership and watching people reach their full potential.
