In 1975, a Kodak engineer created the first digital camera, but couldn’t sell the company executives on the idea because they said they were in the film business and saw the new invention as too big of a change.

Companies always want to know the secret behind the success of entrepreneurs and executives who can move mountains. “I’ve owned franchises, ran small businesses (and sold over 200 of them), and I have been the CMO of a Fortune 500 company. I’ve learned that in every business and in every industry, limitations exist everywhere - mostly in our minds and in the stories we tell ourselves. Getting past these limitations is hard work, but this important new program will give you the tools you need to overcome the obstacles you face in your businesses every day. No one is coming to save us, and none of us will win the lottery. Everyone can think big, the art is in acting bigger." - Jeffrey Hayzlett
