Todays guest is someone who has entrepreneurial spirit running through him, and has demonstrated this from an early age.
When he was 21 years old, he and his brother Scott started a business in direct sales, which they built to over $20 million in annual revenue while still in their twenties
They hustled, they worked hard and they achieved great success.
And for so many people that would have led to selling the company, to sit on a beach for the rest of your life time, but our guest was different.
He believed that he had an ability to lead by demonstrating influence and storytelling to his staff.
And more importantly he realised that by demonstrating his passion, enthusiasm, and of course sharing his talent for storytelling and encouragement with his employees, it was a great way to boost sales.
And this seems to have been a very astute realisation as he has since gone on to even more success by sharing this knowledge across the world.
He has presented sales techniques in over 37 countries in the world, and now with his best selling books The Power of Influence and The Power of Storytelling: The Art of Influential Communication flying off the shelf he stories are going out across the world.
And from his home in Utah, filled with his wife Sarah, daughters Andie and Lizzy and sons Tanner and Drew he looks a very content person indeed.
So was he surrounded by entrepreneurial parents and relatives when he was a younger man?
And what did he see in his brother Scott, that made him realise that he was the business partner of choice?
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only Ty Bennett.
