Howard Partridge is the one and only small business coach for the Ziglar Organization and the author of 7 Secrets of a Phenomenal L.I.F.E. I was immensely blessed to interview Howard for my Journey To Success BlogTalkRadio show.
Although Napoleon Hill is my favorite author of all time, Zig Ziglar is by far my favorite speaker. I attended the world famous Born To Win Course in Texas in my early 20's and I have seen him speak live 9 times.
One of the most exciting events in my life was when I went to the World's Biggest Bookstore in Toronto to have Zig autograph his book Over The Top. He was doing a book signing there for a few hours. As I approached the table, he looked up and said Hello Tom Cunningham. I was floored that he would remember my name considering the hundreds of thousands of people that he comes into contact with.
Howard Partridge grew up on welfare in Mobile Alabama and left home at 18. He arrived in Houston, Texas on a Greyhound bus with only 25 cents in his pocket.
At age 23, he started his first business out of the trunk of his car and built it up to a multi-million dollar enterprise. He has owned 8 small businesses altogether and owns 3 companies at the time of this printing.
He is president of Phenomenal Products, Inc. which helps small business owners stop being slaves to their business by transforming it into a predictable, profitable, turnkey operation.
For the past 15 years Howard has helped small business owners around the world dramatically improve their businesses. He currently has coaching members worldwide, is the exclusive small business coach for the Zig Ziglar corporation, is an independent, and a certified coach with the John C. Maxwell team.
Howard Partridge has led hundreds of seminars, webinars, workshops and holds his own live multiday events which have featured some of America's top business trainers including Michael Gerber, Bob Burg, Dr. Jo- seph A. Michelli, and American legend Zig Ziglar.
Leadership expert John C. Maxwell says, "The difference between highly successful people and those who aren't is how they think (and what they think about)". A man by the name of Frank Outlaw said.... When you Change your THINKING, You Change your BELIEFS. When you Change your beliefs, You Change your EXPECTATIONS. When you Change your expectations, You Change your ATTITUDE. When you Change your attitude, You Change your BEHAVIOR. When you Change your behavior, You Change your PERFORMANCE. When you Change your performance You Change your LIFE.
Every human goes through 5 Levels of thinking (and being) to reach any goal, to learn any new skill, or to change any habit. No goals are met without going through The 5 Levels. No new skill is developed without The 5 Levels and no habit is changed without The 5 Levels.
You will not BEcome the person you were created to be Spiritually, mentally, emotionally or physically without going through the 5 Levels process. You won't have the relationships you want to have without going through the process. And you won't have the success and significance you want in life without going through the process. No one does. The problem is that we aren't usually aware of the process.
Everyone wants a phenomenal life, but few feel like they are living the life they really dream of. Many books have been written about goals, dreams and business, but this one reveals practical, real life, every day techniques for becoming the phenomenal person you were created to be, how to make phenomenal money and have phenomenal relationships. Most of all, it inspires the reader to take action in the areas of life that may have been neglected.
