Product description

From the Inside Flap

Exactly Where to Start is your practical guide to getting started on that dream, goal, or vision in your life. The special dream that you want to turn from an idea into something real. Phil M. Jones—an entrepreneur, master salesman, motivator, and influencer—has written the definitive book that serves as a blueprint to get you well on your way to success. Now you have a way to get over the "If Only Blues." If only I had started working for myself; If only I had started earlier; If only I had listened to that advice; If only I had the courage to try. You get the idea.

Exactly Where to Start is filled with the down-to-earth advice for taking your idea about something you have been meaning to get started on, have been thinking about working on, and you believe is something that will work well, and finally making that something a reality.

Filled with real world experience, critical information, illustrative examples, and helpful action steps, Exactly Where to Start gives you the tools needed to start on your own journey. Your journey to make that elusive dream a reality.

Designed to be a short book filled with BIG ideas, Exactly Where to Start has all the nuts-and-bolts information without the unnecessary, irritating padding. It's a "lean mean action-oriented machine" in the clever disguise of a book.

From the Back Cover


"For any entrepreneur who wants to move from aspiration to action, this is all you will need to kick start your big idea. Consider it the 'Tao of Possibility'."
—Leslie Ehm, founder and chief fire-starter of Combustion Training

"Reading Exactly Where to Start was like reading a personal recounting of the exact steps Phil took me through when I was struggling to get started on my own venture. His ability to simplify my idea into sizeable, ordered steps is a skill that cured my overwhelm, defeated my fear, got me moving, and has kept me building ever since. It's exciting to see that he has captured his own coaching techniques into a book that can take anyone with a desire through the process in a humorous and reassuring way. It's an easy read but if I've learned anything from Phil, it's that the application of knowledge is what really counts."
—Joy HG, former teacher, now founder of House of Little Miracles

"A speedy, concise read, Exactly Where to Start has encapsulated Phil's power-packed, action-based thinking, providing an instant, solid framework on which to build… no matter what the basis of your project. The read is fast, the work is not!"
—Poppy S Brytewood, former healthcare practitioner, now creator of The Pathworker Way

"Having been on the receiving end of Phil's coaching toward starting my own business, I can share that the steps outlined in Exactly Where to Start really work! Keeping this book on hand is like having Phil in your pocket for those moments when you need to ask yourself the right question or plan your next step. Following Phil's advice has enabled me to turn my 'if onlys' into action steps and my 'what ifs' into confidence that I can achieve my dream."
—Rachel Jones, former project manager, now author and entrepreneur

Exactly Like...Nobody Else

Master of Influence and Persuasion - Author of Seven Best Selling Business Books, One Children’s Picture Book - Producer of “Most Listened To” Non-Fiction Audiobook of all time.

Phil M Jones thinks and acts differently. His precise insights around communication, added to a proven personal pedigree of peak performance and a richness of real-world experience mean that Phil is the kind of thought-leader whose council is sought by other thought-leaders.

He believes with passion that the answer to increased success, in every area of life, is to ask better questions, focus on QUALITY of conversation as well as quantity and that quite often, the difference between you, and all the others, is knowing Exactly what to say, when to say it, and how to make more of your conversations count.

Entering the world of business at the tender age of 14, with nothing more than a bucket and sponge, he went from single-handedly washing cars on weekends to hiring a fleet of friends working on his behalf, resulting in him earning more than his teachers by the time he was 15.

His early career was dynamic and challenging including leading experienced teams of sales professionals through his early twenties, as well as guiding Premier League Football Clubs to maximize sponsorships and licensing agreements, in addition to helping grow an independent real estate business to a revenue in excess of over $240m with a sales team of just five.

After several years of being one of the most in-demand young sales leaders in the UK, Phil decided it was time to dedicate his future to helping others to succeed. Ever the entrepreneur,

Phil started his training and consulting business from scratch in 2008 and has grown a deep body of work that showcases his core belief that changing your words can truly change your world.

Best known for his international best-selling book, Exactly What to Say – The Magic Words for Influence and Impact and his vast experience as a professional speaker at conferences and events, what is often overlooked is the strategic intellect he provides behind the scenes for some of the world’s biggest brands to understand their critical conversations and the success language required to maximize their effectiveness.

To date, more than 800 different industries, across 59 countries and 5 continents have benefitted from his input. Trusted by dynamic and aspiring leaders in Healthcare, Real Estate, Automotive, Financial Services, SaaS, Home Improvement, Retail and many more – Phil is the kind of expert that achieves his success through the people he supports and adores see-ing other people shine.

A few noteworthy accolades include

· An entrepreneurial success story and founder of five multimillion dollar companies

· President of Orange and Gray – A market leading communications agency

· Strategic Advisor to pioneering leaders of the world’s biggest brands

· Youngest ever winner of the British Excellence of Sales and Marketing Award

· One of less than 200 living members of the National Speakers Association Hall of Fame

· Innovator of the highly coveted “How to Persuade” audible production

· Creator of the most listened to non-fiction book of all time

· Author of 7 best-selling business books and one GORGEOUS children’s book

His mission is simple. To help great people, get better. Because a relentless focus on get-ting better means that better soon beats the current best.

Another absolute gem by Phil M. Jones. I could not put this book down!!!! So many great bits of information & rock solid advice!!! Phase two of “Exactly Where To Start” starts October 10th ... 10 weeks ... for only $10! Phil M Jones is walking thru this book chapter by chapter (yes, you guessed it .... there are 10 chapters)!!. How many authors do you know that do that???? I’ve fully committed to having my big idea 100% in the works by December 16th. Now .... go buy this book .... and if you haven’t purchased his other books .... do that too!
