I'm excited to release the first of 15 videos clips that were taped for "Reality of Business" that aired on TV.
Successful business owners want more from their businesses. They often know that the business isn't achieving its true potential...it's doing well but has plateaued and they don't know how to take it to the next level. I share a couple ideas on this video that have worked successfully with my successful business owners.
Good is the enemy of great. Most business owners view "good" as being their destination. "My business is good". "Or, my employees are really good." By so saying they lessen the commitment to becoming GREAT. Being good is on the path to being great so don't "take your foot off the gas" when you become good. Remain committed to constant never-ending improvement.
I grew up in New Jersey as an avid fan of the New York Yankees. In fact I often dreamer of playing center field for the Yanks. Those Yankee teams weren't satisfied with being good; they were committed to being great.
Don't lower your horizon by only thinking about being good.
Has the growth of your business leveled off? Do you find yourself doing the same ole things to grow your business, but they're not having any effect? Wasn't it Einstein who defined an idiot as someone who keeps doing the same things over and over again expecting different results?

In working with business owners I find that most are experts at the technical elements about doing the work of their business...they know how to install a roof, or to style hair, or to practice law, or to file tax returns. And, they think that that's all they need to know in order to grow their businesses. Yet, they wonder why their business isn't achieving it's potential. They need to add knowledge about how to run a business to their passion for doing the work of the business. At good place to start is by reading "Start With Why'", which I introduce in this video.Input your text in this area
