Malcolm Gladwell famously said in his 2008 book Outliers that it takes roughly 10,000 hours to get good at something. With that in mind, it’s difficult to look at Tyrone (TJ) Johnson as anything else but an expert in time management.
A 25-year veteran of the real estate settlement services and title insurance industries, TJ currently serves as Assistant Vice President and State Agency Manager for Alliant National Title Insurance Company for the Mountain West region. The role requires him to apply his decades of experience to support Alliant National’s agent network and operations – including education, marketing, sales and strategic growth initiatives.
For many people, building one long and successful career would be enough. But for TJ, his success at Alliant National was preceded by a 15-year career as a jazz musician. During those years, he routinely performed at five-star resorts throughout the Midwest, Southeastern and Southwestern United States. TJ’s musical ability remains undiminished today, having appeared recently as a headlining act in the Lansing JazzFest.
With two accomplished careers in wildly different industries under his belt, it’s natural to wonder how TJ “did it.” Was it as simple as somehow finding the time for Gladwell’s 10,000 hours? TJ himself attributes his success to a strong drive. And this has led, naturally, to a superior work performance – from mastering the complexities of title insurance to wowing crowds of ardent jazz fans throughout the country.
Outside of TJ’s ongoing responsibilities at Alliant National, he is currently hard at work on his next album entitled, “A Family Affair.” He also enjoys spending time with his wife Sheri, his daughter and his three grandchildren.
