Andy Bailey knows entrepreneurs. Now the Founder of Petra Coach, Andy started his career as an entrepreneur himself, founding NationLink Wireless while still in college and growing it into an Inc. 500 corporation. After burning the candle at both ends for years, however, Andy realized that he was working “for” his job, not “on” his business. He began searching for ways to achieve his ultimate entrepreneurial dream and began implementing a specific methodology, based on the Rockefeller Habits.
After years of strategic plans, systematized procedures and goal-setting, Andy successfully sold and exited NationLink in 2011. With the next chapter on the horizon, he realized that all of the lessons he learned and the business habits he had adopted to further his own career could be taught to organizations, entrepreneurs and business leaders to improve accountability, camaraderie, culture and results. Fast forward to the present day, and Andy now has logged more than 10,000 hours coaching CEOs, executives and leaders across the globe on these principles.
