The majority look for work within already established networks. Successful entrepreneurs seek to build those networks.
You can have the best product or service in the world BUT
There is no value (=wealth) if it doesn’t have a well built network to distribute its value to clients or customers.
… perhaps the small, authentic, human factors will return to the fore.
As we enter into a world of negative interest rates and the nuttiness that this entails going forward of who pays who:
Do I pay you for goods and services from now on or should you be paying me…?
The good news is that we might just see a return to real value – not paper value – that supercedes the current faceless corporate chain of value (?) delivery.
How will you equip yourself?
It works for Zappos.
It just might work for you too.
What new ideas and methodologies are you testing in your business this week / month?
How many experiments are you running and analysing?
You must keep on rattling the cage to find the next best product, solution, service, market etc.
It might appear as if you have a preservation order over your business / industry – looks like it’s Grade II listed.
What if you tried to dismantle one or more commonly accepted assumptions and perhaps tried to build something new?
Then me and him and her and every other enthralled customer will do it for you.
Just give me something to run with….
I want to help you build a great business.
One that continues to amaze and enthrall with stories to tell of its passions and hopes and dreams and love for its people and customers.
When businesses like yours win, we all win.
Just give me something to talk about and I’ll gladly share at every opportunity. You see, there are too few interesting and passionate businesses around. Help me out with a few interesting little gems that I can share…
Remember, it’s the little stuff that really counts.
Outsource this; Outsource that…
It’s all the rage. Seems simple. Throw in a bit of global price abitrage (= extra profit) and heck, it may start to look appealing.
But then look inward.
What exactly are you outsourcing and why?
[Hint: aside from (potential) financial cost savings]
We are surrounded by options and choices.
What if I miss out?
“I know, why don’t I cover all bases in my business by trying to sell a bit of everything?”
“Why sell just Italian food when I could tinker with Chinese, South American, Japanese etc?”
“People love choice, Right?”
Get brilliant at one thing. Stick to it. Become a pro. You will not look back.
Well that depends on your plan.
You have one, right?
