Barnstable-based author Jeffrey S. Davis has launched third edition of his book, “The 24 Hour Turnaround,” an inside look at the strategies and thinking of seven business leaders.
Co-authored with external consultant and internal human resource specialist Mark Cohen, “The 24-Hour Turnaround” is a detailed collection of stories and case studies which chronicle the path to success during turbulent times. Readers will learn about entrepreneurial experiences of seven different businesses, pinpointing the most common situations encountered with entrepreneurs and owners of private and family companies. Through detailed interviews and observations, author Davis provides readers with an inside look into the strategies and thinking of these leaders, with takeaways that can benefit all entrepreneurs in these challenging times.
“One of the most important aspects of these different businesses is that all of them navigated their organizations to experience great success during this economic chaos without any outside financial help whatsoever,” said Davis. “They found their way to success unknowingly using the same values-based principles. This book highlights those easy to learn principles for other businesses to apply.”
“We live in a world filled with chaos and have experienced two years unlike any other in our history,” added Davis. “Keeping our entrepreneurs thriving in this atmosphere is critical. The book does a deep dive into the businesses of seven entrepreneurs in different industries, and how they navigated a similar formula to deal with adversity and reach success by having a smart plan, strong values and hard work.”
Davis, a Montreal-born author, speaker and Chairman/Chief Executive Officer of Mage, says that he is similar to the people he writes about. “I have owned nine businesses; I have experience across many industries which gives me insight into the people I write about and their strategies.”
Since 1985, he, and his company Mage have guided over 700 entrepreneurial businesses and organizational leaders on issues ranging from strategy, marketing and sales, to organizational transition, culture and family transitional issues. The case studies, based on the authors’ extensive experience with individual entrepreneurs and their organizations, highlight means and methods by which business leaders can achieve their visions and goals regardless of the nature of the market or the economy. Mage has been featured in 35 major newspaper and magazine articles, detailing the company’s methodology for entrepreneurial and leadership success.
Davis’s strong resume of business experience includes serving as Chairman of the Board for MTP Software, the largest CRM for the sports and entertainment industry. He is the co-founder of the Massachusetts Family Business Association and a former Adjunct Professor at Babson College, Wellesley. For several years, he was also a columnist with the Boston Business Journal for the Small Business Report. He leads and sits on a number of private and not-for-profit boards.
Davis is also the founder of Radio Entrepreneurs, an Internet and YouTube show featuring stories of entrepreneurship that has connected to over 800,000 people in 32 countries. Prior to Radio Entrepreneurs, his radio experience also included Apple Business Report in Canada and the Business Radio Network.
