In the first of my brand new series, I’m pumped to have a long-term mentor sit and talk to me for 20 minutes about how he sets himself up for a successful day, every day. John Barrows is my first guests on the “James Picks Brains” series, which will actually be a little shorter than this interview was. We’re going to be talking to sales reps, leaders, practitioners and people who are doing everything they can to crush it so we can find out what they’re putting in to get the most out of their day. Over the next few weeks you’ll spot questions about morning routines, work life balance, leadership styles, what people do before 9am and who our biggest influences are. That, and a ton more!
