The economy is getting better and there are more available jobs out there than the months before. Yes there are a lot of minimum wage jobs out there that pay under $9 an hour or less, but there is not a lot of $25 to $40 an hour jobs out there. “I believe those jobs are gone and not coming back any time soon,” says Davis. I have seen some of the hard hit areas in the country on “The Breaking Free World Tour” where the factory has pulled out and there is not another job for the next 200 miles. I spoke with Bonnie a rep from one of the factories and asked why they just closed their doors, pulled out and let go of 175 hard working people and she said, “The answer was very simple, the numbers just did not add up.” So Mr. Davis said, “What if you could hit those numbers would you re-open your doors and re-hire those people?” The factory rep said, yes, they would.
I had asked Mr. Davis in an interview in Chicago a couple months earlier before this interview. What do you hope to accomplish by doing the world tour? He said my dad used to say all the time if you could help just one family by saving their job or help them put food on the table so they can feed their family you are already successful. Cole said, “But what if I could do more than that, what if I could help save the business that employs all these people by helping make sure they are healthy, profitable, could make payroll and give a quality of life back to the employees?”
The Breaking Free World Tour is intended to educate, inspire and empower people in business to accomplish their goals. We do this in event style seating where lots of people come to one spot and I speak on business topics and answer all the questions I can for the audience that they have. Here is just one of the many examples I could give you.
There was a gentleman that showed up at one of our venues in Portland, Oregon he is a contractor that has 31 employees. He had two late payments on his home loan so his personal credit score dropped. The bonding company did a soft pull on his credit and found this out so. Do to the new laws as of two years ago a bonding company does not have to keep you bonded for the whole year and they can change your bonding fee if your score drops to any amount they see fit. The bonding company only gave him 30 days to pay the new monster bond price to keep his business doors open, or close his doors and let his employees go. The question was asked, “How could he creatively keep his bond or fix his credit.” Mr. Davis worked on that solution for 25 minutes in the open forum and came up with 3 creative solutions to achieve his goal. The audience crowd cheered for Mr. Davis said Tom Falcon of Vancouver, Washington that was there that night. I saw this with my own eyes. I know for a fact if that gentleman follows Mr. Davis’ advice his 32 employees and their families’ incomes that were saved that day. As for the factory, Davis met with the owners and is working on a viable solution to re-open the doors and hire the employees back. You can see it at http://www.youtube.com/
