6 Star Business
Why Being 6 Star Comes From inside of Each of Us; with Anthony Wood & Jamo Borthwick - #26
Show Notes

This is a wonderful episode with two people who know how to 'do better'. 

Jamo's perspective as a business owner serving customers in his community directly is a welcome voice to show us what 6 stars means in practice and in action. Anthony gave us an extension of that from the inside of a business and his experience helping business owners to tap into the magic that Jamo carries inside him naturally.

Here's a snapshot of what we discussed:

17:24 - you’ve got to find the right people

28:14 - building people up with confidence is key

40:25 - the importance of tapping into the emotional connection of WHY

42:45 - how do you ensure your staff deliver a 5 or 6 star experience in your absence?

51:47 - focus on what you can control, to the best you can
