Firefighting. Franchising. Business ownership. Leadership. Mentorship. These don't seem to fit together in any situation. But they have a lot more in common than one would expect. Let me share how I've brought these worlds together to find common ground to ultimately create success, growth, overall business satisfaction, and personal satisfaction. Let's get to the next level using an unorthodox, but extremely effective approach.
Alex Lee served as a Firefighter for 25.5 years in the tenth largest city in America, San Jose California. He worked on San Jose's busiest engine company - Engine 26, for 21 of those years. Through more than 25000 emergency calls Alex learned many lessons in life, in death, and everything in between. He's applied these experiences to every facet of his life in order to succeed including owning a successful franchise, becoming a world class salsa dancer, raising a family, and staying with the principals burned into his psyche through the fire: Attitude, Effort, Loyalty, Passion and Commitment. Let Alex come share his message with your business, your group, your family.
Elevate your Franchise through Fire
Firefighting, business ownership, and franchising, at first glance, appear to be an odd couple. However, when put into real time practice, in real world situations, Alex was able to combine the two entities by using 3 keys to success.
These keys came straight from the firehouse, the fire academy grounds, and on real time emergency calls. Learn Firefighter beliefs, practices. and most importantly - mindset, to enhance your business, your bottom line, and your personal happiness.
The process to mastery: Professionally and Personally
