The best business you can be in is the business you are already in. Many people look at other peoples business and compare themselves to them, thinking that they may not be as successful as other people. Often, they have been doing their business for a short while and they are finally getting to a point in their business journey where they may start to see results. They’ve planted the seed, they’ve grown the roots and the shoots are showing, and they change before they’re able to grow the tree and bare the fruit.
Those that change their models or ideas every few years are not gaining any momentum, they are not enabling compounding to kick in.
If you’re going into a company and looking to turn it around, there are two main areas to focus on:
Increase your prices.
You do a profit and loss analysis on each product or department and cut out the loss-making items.
Face to face casual meeting is a non-threatening way to meet and collaborate with other business owners. Many people now are hiding behind their phones with email or instant messaging. Perhaps we have lost the art of actually going and meeting with people face to face and building a relationship.
Be the opposite of social media (which is face to phone), make people feel important. If you’re looking to buy or sell a company or form a business partnership your partner or client needs to feel important, which they won’t do if they are sent a meaningless email or text message.
Money gives you a goal and the drive to grow your business, when you grow your business you reach more people and by reaching more people you serve more people.
The biggest game-changer since becoming a millionaire is having the ability to launch something new, to dive into something new and take some risks and knowing you are able to do that.
“It takes time to build the tree”
“There is nothing wrong with changing when you need to change”
“It is great to be a master of money but it is terrible to be a slave to money”
