8 Questions that Can Solve Virtually Any Employee Problem

The great news about hiring people is that you create leverage, put food on the table for your employees and help support your local community. The bad news is that with more people come more problems, more conflicts and more mess ups. In other words, as you hire more people, the issue is never if you’re going to have more conflicts or problems or mistakes. You already know the answer to that question, “Of course.” The question is, “How are you going to fix them?” To make that decision-making...

Why Being You is NOT in Your Self-Interest

Why Being You is NOT in Your Self-Interest

How often has someone suggested something to you that would make you and your business better, only to hear yourself saying in your mind, “But that isn’t me. I just need to be me!”? Probably more times than you care to admit. It’s an interesting line of reasoning, “Be your authentic self.” It sounds good (and would probably look great on a Hallmark® card). However, there’s one major problem with that line of reasoning … it’s a complete and total lie. Moreover, it’s holding you and your...

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...

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...
