Most of us would feel blessed if we were mentored by one successful leader. Mark Timm has had the privilege of being mentored by two top-notch leaders, world-renowned Zig Ziglar and Shark Tank’s Kevin Harrington.
In this interview, we discuss the day Mark realized he was bringing his best in the office but giving his family the bare minimum. We talk about what it takes to be a successful leader both at work and at home. We look at why it’s important for you to both be mentored and be a mentor, no matter what age or stage you find yourself in. The easy to follow steps in Mentor to Millions will empower you to unlock the success you’ve been looking for in the most important areas of your life.
About the Book: On one of the best days of his life as an entrepreneur, Mark Timm found himself sitting in his car at the end of his driveway. In just a minute he would go into the house and greet his wife and children. But as he basked in the success he’d just had, he also had to face a surprising realization: he didn’t really want to go home.
Mark knew that once he stepped into the happy chaos of his family, the euphoria of the day would evaporate. His work life and his home life might as well have been two different worlds. And at that moment, he acknowledged–as he puts it–that “my businesses were getting my first and my best, while my family got my last and my least.”
Mentor to Millions charts Mark’s journey from that pivotal moment to a whole new understanding of how work, life, and relationships can coexist and thrive together. His guide through this journey: his accomplished mentor, Kevin Harrington, one of the original “sharks” from Shark Tank, who shares amazing stories and imparts invaluable wisdom about how to win in business and in every area of life.
This deeply personal, easy-to-follow book invites you to join Mark and Kevin on the journey. Every page pulls back the curtain on entrepreneurship at the highest level, revealing priceless business lessons–which lead to the biggest lesson of all: combining the best of business, family, and personal life. If you’re succeeding in business, struggling, or just starting out, and want your life at home to be what you’ve always dreamed it can be, this is the lesson you need to learn: the most valuable business you’ll ever own, work for, or be a part of isn’t the business you go to every day, it’s the one you go home to.
