As CEO of The TQsmart family of sites I thought I would end this year with some advice for next year.
Advice for people in small businesses who want to grow and turn their hard work into a pile of cash and great memories.
Advice for people who are working too HARD and not seeing the fruits of their labor.
Advice even for myself and team of people all working together to build extraordinary new products.

Ten years ago, on September 9th, 2009 we launched Success On Purpose.
Over the last 10 years we have seen thousands of lives changed by the simple process we developed to first help people FIND their authentic purpose in life… and more importantly… go on to actually LIVE it.
Without question, there are two great tragedies in life.
The first is to never know your true purpose…
The second is to know your purpose but never live it fully.
Chaos Driven Success. The economy is once again going into a period of absolute chaos. This is GREAT news for the prepared but TERRIBLE news for people clutching to failed strategies, practices, and out-dated thinking…
Phil Knight is right.
Chaos is inevitable but it can be managed with the right leadership skills.
With the right skills, you grow powerful and successful.
Wealth, freedom, opportunity, and respect are your rewards.
Permit chaos to rule, you will die broke, humiliated, and stupid.
Regrets will take the place of results and you either give up, give in, or work yourself to death trying everything…
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.”
Passion is one of those words that people use often without really understanding the original meaning of the word.
When most people refer to “passion”, they use it to mean strong emotions reflecting an intense desire or boundless enthusiasm.
That’s a good start.
But passion actually means something entirely different:
A Willingness to Suffer for What You Love.
Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices towards a healthy and fulfilling life.
It is more than being free from illness, it is a dynamic process of change and growth.
A good or satisfactory condition of existence; a state characterized by health, happiness, and prosperity; welfare.
“Wellness is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” – The World Health Organization.
According to several studies, the most common health problem in the world is depression. This problem is often manifested in the form of insomnia, stress, poor nutrition, physical inactivity, obesity, and heart disease, etc.
Irrespective of a person’s age, size, shape or perceived attractiveness, it is wellness that is the cornerstone of quality of life. It determines how we ultimately look, feel, interact with others and thrive in life and work.
It’s Independence Day here in America!
We fought with honor for the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
We fight for freedom.
We fight for success.
We fight for the right to be challenged.
We fight for the right to find our own path in life, unencumbered by the shackles of bondage and despair.
Samuel Smiles said it best…
I love to start with a common definition, but we all know what a goal is and can mouth the meaning easily…
A GOAL is a DREAM with a DEADLINE.
You have some dream — more money, a second home, real career power — whatever, so the only question is, WHEN do you expect it to show up?
A great goal presupposes you know the big WHY…
And believe you have the skills to make it happen… the big HOW.
With the what, when, how, and why set the outcome is simple to see…
You either can take the actions necessary to achieve it, or not.
How a Master Business Strategist thinks about Sales Management…
According to the American Marketing Association (AMA), Sales Management is defined as “The planning, direction, and control of personal selling… including recruiting, selecting, equipping, assigning, routing, supervising, paying and motivating as these tasks apply to personal sales force.”
Sales management is essential to the attainment of an organization’s revenue goals in an effective & efficient manner through planning, staffing, training, leading & controlling organizational resources.
“Our job is to connect to people, to interact with them in a way that leaves them better than we found them, more able to get where they’d like to go.” ~ Seth Godin The Invisible Opportunity Before You… Years ago I read a wonderful book on sales and marketing: Selling the Invisible — A […]
Can you run your business without a long-term strategy?
Can you increase market share without a solid marketing strategy?
Can you make more money without a real financial strategy?
Can you grow and prosper without a strategy for success… all the way out to succession?
Of course not!
The Big Misconception…
Most business people equate marketing with selling.
They are totally different business functions.
People buy stuff they want.
People buy stuff they need.
Determining what they need is marketing.
Getting them to move forward and pay for it is selling.
Sales/selling is all about parting people with their money… the LOGICAL progression of doing business with you. Exchanging cash for what you have to offer.
More Sales in 6 Minutes…
The 2018 May TQ survey results have been pouring in and it is obvious that the vast majority — 67% — of our members want MORE money… GREATER income… and strive for a much higher level of BUSINESS success.
Especially with people who are in MLM, Network Selling, Internet Selling, or own a small business with just a few employees.
Having made billions of dollars in sales over my career, I thought I would give you the prescription for more SALES and CASH in 3 simple steps.
The cost is ZERO and the impact PRICELESS.
