The Single Best Strategy for Reducing Stress

The Single Best Strategy for Reducing Stress

If you’re like most business owners/entrepreneurs, chances are your stress levels are pretty high these days. Virtually everywhere I’ve been recently, the business owners/entrepreneurs I’ve met are stressed out. It’s not just the normal stuff of the year, it’s all of the year end closing issues, trying to hit metrics by 12/31, dealing with family issues and parties and kid’s performances, trying to figure out scheduling issues with vacations and ensuring coverage, etc. … let alone needing to...

How to Create a Culture of Gratitude in Your Business

How to Create a Culture of Gratitude in Your Business

If you were given the choice of choosing to work with a group of people who were grateful, happy, energized and productive or a group of people who were ungrateful, complaining, griping and entitled, which would you choose? The answer seems obvious, but every day (as the leader of your company), you’re literally given that choice. Unfortunately, as leaders, we too often forget that. However, what if you could turn that around? Even better, what if you could turn that around this week? If that...

The 3 Essential Elements of a Highly Effective Sales System

The 3 Essential Elements of a Highly Effective Sales System

If you’re like most business owners/entrepreneurs, chances are you didn’t grow up through a sales organization. You started your business because you wanted to solve a problem or generate money around something you like or are good at. However, what you’ve discovered is that’s not enough to grow and scale a business. At some point, you have to convince enough other people to part with their money to buy what you’re offering … beyond what you’re able to do yourself. And that’s where a lot of...

3 Critical Marketing Mistakes Most Small Businesses Make

3 Critical Marketing Mistakes Most Small Businesses Make

If you’re like most business owners/entrepreneurs, chances are you want more leads. Which makes complete sense because you know that everything flows south of that number. More people on the front end means more people at the end (or more people in the top of the funnel means more people at the bottom of the funnel). So, what do most business owners/entrepreneurs do to get more people in the funnel? Exactly. They do more of what they’ve done in the past. Yet still, they’re not getting the...

The One Thing You Should Always Do Before Planning Anything

The One Thing You Should Always Do Before Planning Anything

When you get ready to plan for anything (work, personal, financial, relational, etc.), what do you do first? If you’re like most people, you probably skip, what I consider, the first step that could make all the difference in the world for you (or you and your team) in achieving your goal/plan. I’ve been working with people for decades on creating winning plans, and they virtually all miss this first step. Yet, it is this one step that could take their past failures or their past results and...

How to Go from Slow Growth to Fast Growth

How to Go from Slow Growth to Fast Growth

Are you frustrated that your business isn’t growing as fast as you’d like it to? If you are, you’re normal. Most business owners and entrepreneurs are because 85% of small businesses are either plateaued or in decline. However, that’s probably not what you signed up for. You probably want more—more growth, more money, more freedom, more employees, more customers, more impact, etc. So, how can you turn that around? How can you going to go from being a slow growth company to being a fast growth...

A Simple Game You Can Play to Radically Grow Your Business This Year

A Simple Game You Can Play to Radically Grow Your Business This Year

Every time I survey business owners and entrepreneurs about their primary wants/desires related to their businesses, I get the same #1 response … “I want to grow my business faster.” That response wins every single time. Why? Because most business owners and entrepreneurs aren’t experiencing rapid growth. But what if there was a simple solution, a simple game, that you could play any time, any place that could turn all of that around. If a game like that was available, would you want to play...

3 Strategies for Becoming a Better Negotiator This Week

When was the last time you took a course or read a book on negotiating? If you’re like most business owners and entrepreneurs it’s been a long time, if ever. Yet, negotiating is what you do every day, all day long. You negotiate with your employees, your executive team members, your vendors, your customers (as well as your friends and family members). Any time that two or more people have differing ideas about something, negotiation takes place. In light of that, wouldn’t you like to become...

What To Do When Your Business Is Struggling

When your business is struggling, what do you do? For example, if you’re not growing fast enough, what do you do? Or if your marketing system isn’t generating enough qualified leads to drive your sales team, what do you do? Or if your people aren’t producing at the level you need them to, what do you do? Well, to help you answer these kinds of questions, I want to share with you a short video clip from my BizScalers Club—and my course entitled, Leadership Lessons from the Trenches. This one is...
