Pursuing Complete Success

Michael O'Brien A Mindset Shift Towards Success | Ep. 237Many people portray great success on the outside but deep inside their inner critics tell them that they’re not. They struggle and don’t have peace within. Sales and marketing executives are not an exemption.

“The foundation of every great conversation is curiosity. It is about discovery and is the entry point for empathy.” – Michael O’Brien

Earlier in Michael’s career, he had all the “markers of success” as commonly defined. He had the car, the title, and money. But he did not necessarily have the sense of happiness and fulfillment.

Success Starts Within

Michael is a lifelong cyclist. He loves the fun and sense of freedom it provides. But in 2001, a car suddenly slammed on him as he went on a 20-mile route.

It became a major turning point of his life. He decided to change the story he was telling himself and just be true to who he is as a human being. Since then, he shifted his mindset towards success.

Shift for Better Tomorrows

Michael shares his inspiring story in his book Shift: Creating Better Tomorrows: Winning at Work and in Life.

He transitioned out of corporate America and launched his own business. To this day, he continues to partner with executives to help them become victorious both in their lives and in their careers.

About Jaime Jay

Meet Jaime Jay – a man who wears many hats, and wears them all admirably. He's a master connector, an entrepreneur extraordinaire, and a published author who knows how to get things done.

Before he found his way to the business world, Jaime served his country as a brave paratrooper in the U.S. Army. But that's just the beginning of his many accomplishments.

He's the founder of the renowned Bottleneck Distant Assistant Services firm, and his book "Quit Repeating Yourself" has become a must-read for entrepreneurs everywhere.

When he's not busy building his empire, you can find him on his beloved Harley Davidson, cruising through the countryside and taking in the invigorating effects of Uitwaaien – a Dutch practice that involves facing the wind to boost health and relieve stress.

He enjoys spending his free time outside building stuff with his wife, Nikita the dog and their two kittens (for now at least) Tommy and Tater.

He is ‘over-the-moon’ happily married to his wonderful wife Sara, his amazing daughter, Jessica, who is serving our country as a United States Army soldier. Jaime and Sara are the proud grand parents of two beautiful little girls.
