How is a man who is valued at nearly 4 billion dollars able to accomplish all of this? He spends at least half of his time travelling, visiting distributors, and even making calls to salons who carry his company’s products. How does he not go out of his mind from stress and overworking?
The answer is surprising simply, though many busy, successful professionals overlook it. The man knows how to delegate. He surrounds himself with competent, intelligent people that he trusts to see to the details he does not have time for.
DeJoria purposefully avoids emails claiming he would inundated with so much to do that he would never get anything in accomplished. He opts instead to do things on the phone, trusting in his three assistants to keep him on track, and his presidents to manage the companies.
Allowing his assistants to make his travel plans, set up meetings, and maintain his schedule frees up his time to focus on what matters most to him: quality products, maintaining relationships with vendors and the public, and doing good for the global community.
There is a good lesson to be taken from all of this. Hiring competent professionals to handle the details you do not have time for will free up your energy, so you can focus on your goals. Now, not everyone will require 3 full time assistants like John Paul DeJoria, but everyone could use a little help sometimes.
