Jerry Rollins began his professional career began as a Major League hockey “enforcer”—a team’s tough guy. After leading 5 successful companies as CEO, partner or owner leading to several successful exits. Now, he coaches hundreds of entrepreneurs and CEOs—with revenue ranging from $1 million to $3 billion companies and MBAs from prestigious universities—how to improve their businesses. Not bad for a high school dropout who made two game-changing, life altering moves:

2. Writing down all their invaluable advice and insight throughout my own journey to the top.
