[Legacy post: Small Business Talent] Do most solo entrepreneurs have written business goals? No, but the most successful ones do.
Today one of those exceptionally successful entrepreneurs joins me on the podcast! (By the way, he’s also a very nice guy.)
Gerry O’Brion has a very impressive professional track record. After earning his MBA at the University of Michigan, he worked as a marketing professional with Procter & Gamble on major brands that we all know, including Crisco, Tide, and Mr. Clean.
Later, in the marketing department at Coors Brewing Company Gerry managed Coors Light, a $2 billion business. Next, he joined Quiznos $1 billion restaurant chain as their Vice President of Marketing. After that, he served as the VP of Marketing for Red Robin Gourmet Burgers, another $1 billion brand.
Lastly, as a business owner, Gerry has delivered marketing seminars for a variety of organizations ranging from major food distributors throughout the United States, to international companies such as Choice Hotels & Resorts.
How did Gerry accomplish all of that? One of the major keys to his success is that he sets smart goals for himself (in writing). Another is that he reaches out to others (his volunteer “board of directors”) for guidance along the way.
Finish this year with greater confidence — and then make the next one a year that you can be proud of. Gerry’s goal achievement strategies can help you do it! (Scroll down to the Podcast Player and have a listen now.)
