Boundless Self: Living a No Try Life

You cannot scale your business unless you scale yourself.

In business, leaders are expected to design quarterly, annual and long-term plans that are driven by key performance indicators. Further, most leaders in an organization have gathered for at least a workday to ruminate on the organization’s purpose, mission and core values.

No Try

Andy Bailey knows entrepreneurs. Now the CEO and Founder of Petra Coach, Andy started his career as an entrepreneur, founding NationLink Wireless while still in college and growing it into an Inc. 500 corporation. After burning the candle at both ends for years, Andy realized he was working “in” his job, not “on” his business. He began searching for ways to achieve his ultimate entrepreneurial dream and began implementing a specific methodology, based on the Rockefeller Habits.

Andy’s first book details his business-booming methodologies and the principles implemented within Petra Coach. No Try, Only Do is about avoiding an excuse culture, in exchange for a culture of purpose, alignment and accountability.

If you’re a business owner or entrepreneur, there’s no room for “try” in your vocabulary.

Vitamin B

Andy Bailey has spent his life listening to thought leaders, reading hundreds of books, attending countless events and working with hundreds of teams. And it all boils down to this: take daily action on what you are learning and studying. Nothing ever changes if you don’t.

He wrote his second book with that goal in mind – to provide you with a daily dose of learning. Served in bite-sized chunks, Vitamin B gives you a simple formula that allows you to take what you read each day and convert it to meaningful action.

You are fortunate to have the opportunity to learn from Andy and his team. Reading this book is the equivalent of having one of the premier business coaches in the world share his best ideas with you...this book has the potential to change your business and your life in many, many positive ways. –John Spence | America’s TOP 100 Thought Leaders

President & CEO, Poitras Industries

Since your session, my goals in my life are clear and non-negotiable. Setting my goals in life was one thing, but understanding the why of these goals makes them the way to live my life. I wake up every day thanking life and taking time to be grateful. So every morning is a happy moment! You made me identify what I really want for myself, and the ones I love, for the next 10 years. Once I knew that, there’s no more wasting time or hesitation. It is either reaching my goals or not. I like the fact that I’m accountable for myself every day. Your method is structured and easy to follow. I’m grateful to live successfully my life!
