Jack began his journey to being the successful businessman that he is today after dropping out of the university while obtaining a law degree. At the young age of 18 Jack decided to start a business-to-business call center and with no business education or experience. His success and future was riding solely riding on his optimism.
For the first first two years Jack was working harder than anyone else he knew, yet he was not earning a wage, and he was getting further into debt. When it was hard to continue on the path that he was on Jack was determined and still maintained his optimism.
“I believe whenever you set out to do anything worthwhile in life, the universe will challenge you as a way of testing how much you actually want it. It was Arnold Schwarzenegger who said, “everybody wants to be a body builder but no one wants to lift the weights.” It’s the people that can lift the weights and get through these periods where there is no visible progress that will go on to do something great.”
