“Start Now”, how Jon Butt built his first business at age 18

Jon Butt

 

Today’s guest is a fantastic serial entrepreneur.
He built his first business going door to door selling fire extinguishers, which he sold off for a seven-figure amount.

After selling off his business he decided to embark on making business online and have tried and tested selling a range of different products online before settling on online fire safety products, which has generated well over $20 mill.

His excitement to help others has lead to building marketing courses, marketingforowners.com, where he is offering a range of free marketing training courses and a master class.

 

Some questions I ask:

  • How are you generating income in your business today?
  • How did you start your first business?
  • What was the biggest setback you experienced?
  • How do you setup systems, in your business, to remove yourself from the daily operation?
  • What is your role in your businesses today?
  • How were you able to build a new business in a fraction of the time.

 

What you will learn:

  • How Jon started his first business from being a sales person.
  • Changing the business from one-off sales to recurring revenue.
  • Keep going and be persistent, even when times or tough.
  • Building a second business, as you want it to be, in a fraction of the time and very little staff.
  • How to delegate what you don’t enjoy doing yourself.
  • How to eliminate distractions and stay focused during a day.
  • Avoiding complacency and keep growing.
  • How to use mentors and mastermind groups right.
