(First ~2 mins)

Hello everyone. My name is Jim Rosebush. I am the founder of CEO of Growth Strategy, Inc, and of, and if you want to learn the six and seven figure science to success, significantly increase your revenue, and learn how to successfully build professional relationships, you should be listening to the Sell Without Selling Podcast with my good friend, Stacey O’Byrne.


Stacey: Okay, let’s get into it with Mr. Rosebush. James, thank you so much for being here today.

Jim: Hey, Stacey, it’s my honor. I am thrilled to learn more about what you do, and your life, and it’s just a tremendous privilege to spend a few minutes with you.

Stacey: I have to tell you, I am beyond humbled that you have taken the time to be here today. Reading that bio gave me goosebumps, and I have to tell you, this is like the 10th time I have read it, because it is so overwhelming and humbling to be in your presence. I have to share with you – I am really curious, what made you take the path that you did. You were sharing with me before we hit record that your father taught people how to speak. Yes?

Jim: Yes. My father gave me 3 things. He was a General Motors executive, so he gave me business skills, and his drive at General Motors was to always improve the manufacturing process at a better cost. And he discussed that at the dinner table every night. So he trained us on how to be passionate about growing companies. Second, he was a musician and he expected me to musician. He was a much better musician that I will ever be. He could sit down at the piano and you could say, “Hey could you play that song.” “Sure,” and he could just play by ear, which is an amazing talent. And third, he was a speech coach. And I have to say, even though he liked his job – he had a 35 year career as a lot of dads did then at General Motors, I think he was happiest, the way I observed it, when he was teaching people how to communicate.
