Sales and marketing company 1st Line Global recently hosted a workshop on the story of Ben Hunt-Davis. The West Palm Beach firm reveals how the team GB winner’s motto ‘Will it make the boat go faster?’ can be applied to everyday life.
As part of the Men’s Rowing Eight, Ben Hunt-Davis won the Gold medal at the Sydney Olympics in 2000. Jaemes Hunt, CEO of Florida based direct sales and marketing firm 1st Line Global, finds this story fascinating and believes that the motto ‘Will it make my boat go faster?’ can be utilized as a motivator for personal development: “The boat is your career and everything you do in your day-to-day life determines if and how you can make your career grow”, explains Jaemes Hunt, who is originally from the United Kingdom so holds a special connection to this great British Athlete.
During those Olympics, an ordinary team achieved something extraordinary. Everything they did in preparation of the Games had to answer the question ‘Will it make the boat go faster?’ Their authentic story has been summarized in a motivational autobiographical book and reveals strategies to improve life. The methods outlined in the book are useful for readers from any walk of life, including managers, sales representatives, athletes or shop assistants to name a few.
1st Line Global has recently introduced this story to the team and has made ‘Will it make my boat go faster?’ their motto for the month of February. Jaemes Hunt explains: “We find this story very inspiring. It shows that no matter who you are or what your background is, with the right mindset you can achieve extraordinary things.” He adds: “We want to encourage our contractors to ask themselves this question and apply these tactics to their careers and daily lives in order to become even more successful.”
Jaemes Hunt can very much identify himself with the motto ‘Will it make my boat go faster?’. In order to play in the ‘first line’ he had to work harder than anyone else. Today, 1st Line Global is a leading outsourced sales and marketing company based in Palm Beach, Florida. The firm specializes in promoting and selling their clients’ products and services and provides the relevant resources and expertise to raise brand awareness, drive sales and increase revenue. Based on their success, 1st Line Global has been asked by their clients to represent them nationwide in the next two years. Plans to open up in further markets overseas are also currently under discussion. Jaemes Hunt of 1st Line Global concludes: “We will certainly make our boat go faster and faster in the coming years.”
