Allow Me To Toot My Own Horn

by admin on July 18, 2016

I am a very good judge of talent. That might sound a little boastful, but my track record backs it up. Dozens of my former hires are now senior executives at some seriously awesome companies while many others have gone on to start their own successful businesses. Now I wish I could sit here and ...

Recession Tip: Get Noticed

by admin on July 11, 2016

The brilliant ad in a Jakarta shopping mall makes people look really creepy as fleas on a dog. While everyone is complaining and worrying about the economy, get out there by marketing and advertising.  Find fun ways to get noticed for free.  It drives me nuts when brands or people think they are ‘too professional’ ...

Vivid Vision – Where, Not How.

by admin on July 04, 2016

One of the best parts of creating a Vivid Vision is the chance it gives you to tear off the shackles of reality and logic and fantasize about your future. But often, successful entrepreneurs have a hard time tapping into their creative side. The pragmatic, logical thought patterns that made them successful don’t allow a ...

Putting It Out In the Universe

by admin on June 27, 2016

A lot of New Age books tout the power of putting ideas out into the universe. Once they’re out there, they say, you can expect them to come true. I’m a pretty practical guy. In fact, some of my friends might even think I’d scoff at fluffy mysticism like this. But here’s the thing; I ...

Think Ahead (But Don’t Get Ahead of Yourself)

by admin on June 20, 2016

We’ve all been in job interviews and fielded the inevitable “Where do you see yourself in five years?” question. It’s a tough one to answer without appearing too ambitious or too complacent. But I think this question is flawed for a whole other reason. In our fast paced world, how on earth can you accurately ...

Sharing is Good

by admin on June 13, 2016

I have a friend who writes screenplays in his spare time. He swears he’s always just on the cusp of writing Hollywood’s next big blockbuster. But he also admits it’s a long, hard, uphill journey to get there. The problem is he always takes that journey alone. This friend shares a common fear that many ...

Recession Tip: Give Everyone A Raise

by admin on June 06, 2016

  Make raises one hundred percent commission based, but give everyone a stake in finding new business. Even accounting and IT teams can find clients, so create an upside for them, too.  When everyone in your company has a stake in the outcome and can make more money by bringing in clients or employees, they ...

Lean Into the Future

by admin on May 29, 2016

If you watched any of the Winter Olympics from Vancouver, you may have seen American downhill skier Lindsey Vonn’s pre-race routine. She would stand there, close her eyes, bob her head back and forth and wave her hand in front of her face. In other words, she looked like someone having a very good time ...

Are Your Conference Calls Like This ?!?

by admin on May 24, 2016

This is what most conference calls are like… Get your employees to all read the book “Meetings Suck” – and you won’t have to endure another one like that video either… http://tinyurl.com/hkrrkum...

College Pro Painters

by admin on May 22, 2016

25 years ago in Dec 1985 I was admitted to what I now know was my real world MBA. And the guy in the picture Grieg Clark started it all in 1971. Almost 40 years later, College Pro Painters is still, in my opinion, the single biggest reason I am where I am today in ...
