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

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 ?!?

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 ...

Hiring is a Big Decision, Get Employee Input

by admin on May 22, 2016

When you get to a certain point in the recruiting process, it makes sense to bring in other team members to interview prospective hires. They’ll be working with this new person, and it’s only fair they have a say on who it is. Unfortunately, a lot of your rank and file employees likely lack interview ...

by admin on May 15, 2016

Growing a successful business involves so much forecasting and visualization, you’d almost expect to see crystal balls on the desks of the world’s top entrepreneurs. Just think of all there is to think about; venture funding, revenue predictions, office space. Unfortunately, one area often overlooked is forecasting your business’s hiring needs. Stakeholders get caught up ...

Fix Things As You Go. Just Grow Faster…

by admin on May 11, 2016

  So often I hear of employees trying to have things “perfect” before they launch something. Reality is, more often than not, it’ll never be perfect. Momentum creates momentum.  And most entrepreneurs are OK with fixing things as they go. Push your team to go faster, when you do, you’ll see things that need to ...

Be Yourself, Everyone Else is Taken

by admin on May 09, 2016

I must admit I always struggled with writing down what the core values for my company BackPocket COO would be. In fact, I found it easier to put them in place for companies I’ve built in the past because I had teams of people. Now my company is me, and some awesome virtual people doing ...

Mind Blowing Door Openers

by admin on May 02, 2016

Two years ago I was speaking at the 20th anniversary of Entrepreneurs Organization (EO) in Las Vegas. It is not unusual for people to come up after I present to say hello, ask questions, or ask for my contact info. Not a big deal and it usually doesn’t result in much more than a couple ...
