Quick Hit: Small Business Failure

Every small business that makes it — leaders who turn their business into a true gold mine — has SOLVED the problems raised in this article.

They start with a good idea. They organize for success and learn to out-think… out-smart… out-hustle the competition at every step.

The Small Biz Paradox…

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

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.

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.

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 key word is “chronically”.

All businesses present their own unique challenges.
