Crosby is the creator of the 7-day program entitled, Becoming the 1%: How to Master Productivity and Rise to the Top in 7 Days. OK, let’s not take the title literally – you’re not going to rise to CEO level in a week…
But what this program does show you is the very methods you need to undertake to put yourself in the place that other top successful people are. And once you learn these, the world – as they say- is your oyster.
