Everything in life is voluntary, including success

As Founding Partner of  Success is Voluntary, a boutique consultancy firm, Tim helps individuals and companies reach their maximum potential by creating a laser focus on what he calls the FOUR PILLARS OF SUCCESS:
1) Recruit and Hire Enough of the Right Kind
2) Onboard and Train Effectively
3) Accelerate Production at All Levels
4) Drive Leadership Development

Listen as Tim interviews some of the most successful authors, sales leaders, and business people on the planet each week. The thing they all have in common? They all faced challenges, yet chose to volunteer to do the hard, sometimes excruciating, work to be successful. When the episode is done, you will feel like you just attended a masters class and walk away ready to volunteer for success.
