What Would Jimmy Buffett Do?

Success leaves clues. Whenever you are unsure what to do next ask yourself, “What would Jimmy Buffett do?” The first thing that may pop into your mind is to chill. In fact, Buffett once said, “If life gives you limes, make margaritas.” The truth is, Jimmy Buffett is actually not the same person as his persona. Mr. Margaritaville is actually a driven, determined, and disciplined businessman. In fact, there is a long list of rock stars who are better at business than you might think—Sammy Hagar, Gene Simmons, and David Bowie instantly pop into mind. In addition to turning to rock stars for ideas to make my business better, I also learned how to make my presentations more exciting, engaging, and entertaining by follwing their lead—and it worked. Success leaves clues and no matter what we want to do, someone has done it before and all we need to do is to follow in their wake. After the success I had in emulating rock stars I did the same thing with best-selling authors like Seth Godin and Tom Peters for insights on how to build my website and get my 17 books on the best-seller list. Whom do you admire? What have they done that you haven’t? How did they do it? The answers will help you become someone so successful others will want to emulate you.
