Business Success: The Empowerment Habit

According to Chronos, “Empowerment entails creating an environment that fosters growth. For small businesses, empowerment can take many forms, each with the potential to enhance your organization’s efficiency and profitability, as well as your ability to work with others toward common goals. Sharing power might be hard at first, but focus on the long-term benefits of improving the function of all the various aspects of your business.”

The Small Biz Paradox

The Small Biz Paradox…

The dilemma — you want to grow your small business to become a titan of industry.

Business Success In Hours Not Years

The Hard Way or the Easy Way…

There is a hard way to build a company and there is an easy way to do it.

The hard way is what most people choose, relying on experience and trial and error — which is WHY 50% of all businesses fail within 36-48 months.

The easy way is to invest an hour a week in actual strategic planning — not general business planning which is useless — and determine what you are going to make happen. This is the key to growing the next Apple, Whole Foods, Nike… even the next hot new restaurant.

The Midas Touch in a Single Word: Strategy

Smarter Business Starts With a Smarter Strategy.

Today is a great time to think about the year ahead, what you must do to increase market share, attract new business, and build greater value.

That, of course is the desire.

But the reality is, most businesses will simply ignore the idea of creating an actual strategy, instead, attempting to throw a bunch of random tactics at the day to day issues every business faces.

Which is why the business failure rate continues to ravage the hopes and dreams of entrepreneurs everywhere.

Leading A Sales Revolution…

As part of the launch of our 2019 Midas Touch Bundle we will be talking about big issues, but in a highly condensed format.

Today it is on the process of turning a prospect into an actual paying customer.

As we say in The Golden Game, there is a big difference between MARKETING and SELLING.

Marketing is all about values and establishing the customer’s wants, desire and need for what you have to offer.

Selling is the belly-to-belly dance where you part the prospect with money, provide him a fabulous product and service, and he presumably becomes your customer for life.

Winning In Business is a Street-Smart Affair…

Street-Smarts Rule…

It takes all kind of smarts to make the world go around.

Here’s an observation from J. B. Smoove…

“There’s book smart, there is street smart, there’s relationship smart, there’s too many different kinds of smarts to know all of them. Everybody doesn’t know every kind of smart. There’s money smart, there’s movie smart, there’s computer smart. There’s just too many different kinds of smarts for people to know all the smarts.”

The True Power of Synergy

According to the dictionary, synergy has a simple definition:

“A synergy is where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. In other words, when two or more people or organizations combine their efforts, they can accomplish more together than they can separately. They can get more done working together than they can working apart.”

Personally, when I think of synergy I think of strength.

Consider a wall of bricks stacked on top of one another 10 feet high with no mortar. 

Push on the center and it will cave in.
