Somethings can’t be learned by the book they are better learned doing, and owning a business is one of those things.
It started as an inspiration from a former CEO of mine he inspired me to go and build something for myself.
And inspired I was, I started taking steps to owning my first big business.
I was past involved with small business ventures but not one of those small ventures resembled the current project I was about to start.
Little have I known, that I was in for a big surprise!
This is for you, if you’re interests is not in lame “get rich quick” schemes. You’re not trying to build a business with no work, no time, and no sense.
You’re not chasing after that magical silver bullet that will solve all your problems.
Mainly, you’d just like some solid, smart advice on building a business that actually works.
In other words, you know business development doesn’t have to be lame or downright complicated.
You know you don’t need to reinvent the wheel you just need to learn what has been working, the fundamentals of business building and take it from there.
It’s time to pull back the curtain for a moment and talk about what I’ve learned so far from writing the content in this blog.
I will take you behind the scenes of the early days of this particular media brand.
Then I’ll talk a bit about where it almighty be going.
In business things are not always as they seem, more times than we care to admit business is filled with myth, personal opinion and a lot of fables.
In the sixteenth century a young man named Galileo Galilei went up to the top of the leaning tower of Pisa and dropped two cannon balls.
When they hit the earth these cannon balls made an impact which will, without doubt, shape mankind’s destiny to the last syllable of recorded time.
For they put an end to a method of thinking, and the world can never be the same again.
You as an owner of a business, must have a way to make certain that the time and resources you invest in a business produces exactly what you want.
A tool for measuring your progress toward a specific end.
This means your business must be able to communicate to anyone the direction your business is going, how it intends to get there and specific benchmark it will need to hit in order for you to achieve your life long dreams and desires.
You have to avoid the average business owner thinking, who start a business and leave everything to chances, wishing and praying that something someday will change.
That someday everything will finally be fine, that someday everything will start to go as planned.
That’s wishful thinking at best and it won’t change anything.
Your business future depends on your people doing things by your standards. Doing things your way, not by the standards they have been taught to do in somebody else’s business.
How do I get my people to do what I want?
This is almost always one of the most asked question a small business owner have.
