NEWTON and BARNSTABLE, MA AND MONTREAL, QUEBEC, Issued July 12, 2022…Jeffrey Davis, author, public speaker, business leader and CEO of leading management consulting firm Mage, today announced the launch of the third edition of his popular book “The 24-Hour Turnaround.”
“The 24-Hour Turnaround” is available on Amazon.com, HappyAbout.com, through the Mage website, and in select bookstores throughout the region. The first and second editions of the book were published in 2011 and 2017. “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 of the 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.
“The 24-Hour Turnaround” focuses on leadership, values, attitudes, strategies, and tactics. It enables entrepreneurs to turn a keen analytical eye on their business trajectories and their personal leadership styles. It demonstrates the benefits of change, and teaches entrepreneurs how to go about implementing real change that creates a more consistent environment for success, business stability, and growth. Its unique value has already received broad recognition. Ronald S. Lauder, Chairman of the Board of Estee Lauder Inc., calls this book a “must read for anyone who’s in business to lead and succeed.” Designed as an easy-to-read guide filled with wisdom that a business owner can deploy today, “The 24-Hour Turnaround” enlightens and empowers the small business leader and entrepreneur who wishes to steer a business to success, all within the challenges of a shifting, uncertain economy.
“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,” said Davis, adding, “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, and who maintains homes in Boston, MA and Montreal 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.
