Let lawyer turned entrepreneur Terry Giles explain what sets high achievers (“the fifteen percent”) apart from those that don’t quite make it. This is a riveting story of what it takes to win and keep winning—in business and in life—from one of America’s most successful entrepreneurs, with a foreword by Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Dr. Ben Carson.
Terry Giles has lived a classic American success story. By 30, he built one of the largest criminal defense firms in Southern California and generated tens of millions in revenue working with high profile clients. By 34, he left the legal profession and achieved even greater success as an entrepreneur, seemingly overnight.
But as Giles observes in The Fifteen Percent, no one goes through life without facing serious obstacles. Speaking about his own hard-won experience from his difficult upbringing to his place in some of America’s loftiest boardrooms, Giles offers readers the answer to the question that took him years to answer: Why do some people overcome hardships better than others?
Using examples from his career and life—defending child sex abuse victims, his involvement in Monica Lewinsky’s trial, and managing Dr. Ben Carson’s 2016 presidential campaign—he illustrates these ideas in action. In each chapter, you’ll learn valuable skills including fearlessness; embracing underdog status; visualizing the future; and positive thinking; proving that you do not have to be a victim of bad circumstances to adopt the superpowers of “the fifteen percent.”
Entertaining, inspiring, and full of useful insights you’ll turn to again and again, The Fifteen Percent will help you overcome whatever’s holding you back, so you can achieve lasting success in your career and your life.
