New Releases: Think Big, Act Bigger: The Rewards of Being Relentless

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 3:00 PM – Filed under: Innovation & Creativity, Leadership & Strategy, Management & Workplace Culture, Personal Development & Human Behavior

ThinkbigactbiggerThe most dangerous and lethal move in business—is the failure to make a move. It is no secret that 50% of businesses fail within the first 5 years. There are several reasons why half of all businesses fail, and Hayzlett can distinguish what separates the failures from the flourishing. There is a long list of companies that ceased to exist because they failed to make a move and adapt to the changes in the market until it was too late.

Jeffrey Hayzlett is a global business celebrity and speaker, author, contributing editor and host of C-Suite with Jeffrey Hayzlett on Bloomberg Television. He is the CEO of The Hayzlett Group, an international strategic business consulting company focused on leading change and developing high growth companies.

Hayzlett knows a thing or two about how to continuously adapt and change so your business doesn’t die. His insider track in the C-suite has enabled him to meet some of the biggest names in business and to share with audiences worldwide what makes c-level executives tick. Would you be interested in an interview with Hayzlett?

From small businesses to international corporations, his creativity and extraordinary entrepreneurial skills have enabled him to lead ventures blending his leadership and business strategy, insights into the c-suite and mass marketing prowess. His expertise has scaled countries and industries working alongside of and interviewing LeVar Burton of Reading Rainbow, Gene Simmons of KISS, Daymond John of FUBU, and businesses such as Barefoot Wine, Lululemon, Cadillac, Dominos and Dunkin’ Donuts.

In his newest book release Think Big, Act Bigger, Hayzlett details his experiences inside big thinking companies by telling personal stories and interviewing top executives. Inspired by his CMO background and his Midwest roots, this book weaves together personal stories and anecdotes from his time behind closed doors in small and Fortune 500 businesses.

He believes the one value you need to move in a business is true hard work and to own your own persona, which is one of the reasons he will never do a TEDTalk.

In his book he is riling against the ‘cult’ of TEDTalks because the idolatry of TED has led to too much change in the wrong direction.

Businesses can boom from thinking big and acting bigger, and Hayzlett knows from down in the trenches, first-hand experience. Because in the fast-paced business world, with systems that become outdated before they’ve even passed the prototype stage, there’s no time to hesitate and there’s undeniably no time to think small.

In Think Big, Act Bigger, Hayzlett expounds upon topics such as:


  • Understand & Apply the Golden Rule: no one is going to die.
  • Learn How to Tell Your Own BIG Story
  • Be Willing to be a Little Pigheaded
  • Tell Bigger Stories: And Make Sure Everyone Around You Does Too
  • Kill the Squirrel: How to get rid of distractions & stay focused
  • Clean Your Own Bathroom
  • Steamroll Obstacles and Enemies
  • Find a Bigger Pond
  • Reach Out and Touch Someone: How a servant mentality can change the success of your business
