028 – Derek Mills: The Standards Guy

Creating Daily Standards to Live by with Derek Mills

In 2003, After 17 years as a failing businessman working 6-7 days a week and 17 years of goal-setting, Derek Mills was still a failure on every level which mattered to him. 

However, after a revolutionary insight one evening, Derek was able to turn his life and business around by adopting the philosophy of running his life and business by Daily Standards.

You have heard of superstar business gurus who seem to have led a charmed life, having success after success in their 20’s and throughout their lives. This is not the path that Derek Mills took.

Derek speaks about the critical ONE THING which causes millions of would-be entrepreneurs and businesses to fail. Derek shares his life stories and experience to reveal the truth. For him, there is no theory, but a life of suffering and then revelation about how we each need to live and how we must run our businesses in order to connect with more customers and clients and to make us stand apart from any crowd.

Author of The 10-Second Philosophy®, Derek is the coach’s coach and the adviser’s adviser. He speaks and lives authentically and shares how every business owner and leader can do the same for massive impact using the Daily Standards philosophy and practices. The principles have been shared by Derek on 5 continents.

From being broke and depressed after discovering the critical ONE THING, he made his first £1M within 3 years with the same products and services, in the same role, where he’d been previously failing.
