Stop shooting yourself in the foot!

After working with the same landscaping service for over 10 years, I finally had to find a new one. What made things worse is my old lawn care service had been my client since day one of my seminar business. It’s not easy to stop doing business with someone who’s been with you from the very beginning supporting your company. So why do it? Sometimes you don’t have a choice...

Stop shooting yourself in the foot!

Did you ever notice that when you receive good service from a business and it gradually increases its prices, you might grumble, but you don’t stop patronizing them? The fact is, we understand that prices go up and there’s not much we can do about it. As long as the service remains good (or great), we tend to go along with it. However, I’ve recently noticed a very disturbing trend...

Stop shooting yourself in the foot!

I realize that most business owners do anything they can to get business when they’re first starting out. I remember one of my clients who owned his own roofing company telling me in 2008 when the economy tanked, that anyone with a ladder and a truck who found himself unemployed instantly became a roofer. This was a low barrier to entry. As a result...

Stop shooting yourself in the foot!

I recently was invited to attend a networking mixer sponsored by a company that encourages you to send thank you cards through the mail. It was amazing how many of the members of this organization gave me their business cards which did not include mailing addresses. (I’m not making this stuff up!)

When you go to a networking event like a mixer, the whole idea is that you want to get new bus...

Reinvent yourself.

Today’s blog is written by my guest speaker, Melissa Lineaweaver. Melissa is on the panel for the Proven Success Skills for Business Women Forum, being held at the Comfort Suites in Manheim on June 13, 2019 from 9 am to 12 noon. In 2014, I realized I needed to change what I did so that I could do more of what I loved. The problem was that I didn’t know what I really loved doing. A good friend and mentor of mine, Dave Romeo, suggested that I make...

Success is predictable?

Today’s blog is written by my guest speaker Dwight Smith, owner of Stewardship Small Business Services and Stewardship Small Business Academy.

A business is usually started because an entrepreneur feels very strongly about something. It may be a hobby that he or she does, a skill he or she possesses, or a talent the entrepreneur wishes to share with the world.

Why then, do so many businesses ...

Why I refuse to text.

Years ago, a couple of seminar attendees were kidding each other back and forth. One was always asking the other one for help. He teased the other one about the number of calls he made to him and how many times the second man had to return his calls. Annoyed, the second man said, “from now on, you’re getting a text.” In other words, instead of allowing this man to talk to him and ask questions...

Four easy ways to combat complacency

Recently, I needed to replace my CPA, website developer, pest control service, and landscaping company. These were all businesses I had been using for over 10 years. Not only that, but they were also my customers! It’s very difficult to let customers go, but sometimes that’s what the situation dictates—for your benefit and theirs. By now, you’re probably wondering what caused me to take such drastic action. The answer is very simple...

Don’t practice on your customers!

I once mentioned to the general manager of one of my client companies that, half of the time, his sales people did not get enough information from their prospects before they started recommending solutions. He said, “I guarantee you it’s higher than that.”

Listening,...

Staying power is everything!

One thing that has always fascinated me is that I can go into a room and do a presentation and make a connection to somebody in that room that will last for decades, but, at the same time, I may not see any of the other people from the presentation again. I’ve also been intrigued how some people start out so strong and come week after week to my seminars and then, one day they just stopped coming. I have not been...
