But, it did.
“James, my name is Tim Adams, and I’m an executive recruiter with CCM. We specialize in finding outstanding sales executives for companies that are ready to take things to the next level, and that’s why I’m reaching out to you today. I’m working with a company that I feel would greatly benefit from your expertise. Are you open to learning a little bit more about what could be a serious career opportunity?”
“I’m not really sure. I get one or two calls a month from folks like you, and I’m pretty happy with my situation,” James tell him.
“I understand. But, would you at least be open to learning more about the position and this cutting-edge company?”
“I’m just not sure. The opportunity would have to be pretty amazing for me to even consider leaving Spring-Flash.”
“This is one of those amazing opportunities, James. It’s with a publically-held company, and they’re offering a really generous amount of stock options…for the right candidate, of course. And their salary package is beyond competitive.”
“Well, I guess it wouldn’t hurt to spend some time learning a little more about this position……”
“I was hoping you’d say that, James.”

Two months later, James left his successful 12-year career at the Spring-Flash Lighting Company located in Chicago, for greener pastures; in Portland, Oregon.
It’s amazing. (How one phone call could change things)
Who is James?
James Pennington is a person in my book about franchise ownership. He’s a rising corporate star. He has a great wife and two beautiful kids. He wants them to have a great life…one in which they have every one of their needs met. He wants to make sure that both of his daughters have the best education that money can buy. He doesn’t want his wife to have a job. (Unless she really wants one!)
He wants what a lot of us want; financial independence.
Find out if he achieves it, by grabbing my book. The first chapter is, “About James.”
