I started an early exploration to find out what makes large national brands extremely successful over the “mom and pop” entrepreneurs. I’ve worked with many of today’s leading brands in North America.
I discovered how to apply these corporate success practices in a variety of business settings and industries to create innovative and highly profitable results.
Combining these systems across different industries, I have turned around several businesses from under performers to leaders of their industry – and so can you.
My introduction to the world of business started on an ice cream bike. Ice cream selling was a great start for many reasons:
* It’s a cash business – you get paid daily
* You get instant customer feedback
* You can test different marketing strategies daily
For the first few weeks I drove around my defined residential route aimlessly. This made me bored, mad and depressed because I was not selling much ice cream. My friends working at McDonald’s earning $3 per hour were doing better than I was… UNTIL…
Until I thought about what I was doing out there everyday from noon until 8pm pushing around a 300lb ice cream bike. It hit me like a flash of lightning.
So I developed a route that I started riding every day the same way for one week. From noon until 4pm I covered the route. I had dinner at 5pm and hit the route again at 6pm just as everyone was finishing dinner.
Then something magical started happening…
After 6pm people were lined up outside of their homes and apartments with money in hand waiting to buy from me. Why?
They expected me because I created a consistent and predictable schedule of arriving at their house the same time each day.
Then I realized that the afternoon route was critically important in order to aggravate the kids all afternoon who begged their mom and dad for an ice cream bar.
After dinner I sold triple the ice cream bars than I sold in the afternoon!
Why do I share this story with you?
I learned key lessons that every business can benefit from:
Many business people today know most of this already. The problem lies in good intentions mixed with inconsistent execution.
It’s Not Your Fault
The brightest entrepreneurs I work with have a solid business idea or operation in place. They are well intentioned with business plans as tough as a 100 year old oak tree. But they are often frustrated by a lack of sales or growth.
I too have been equally frustrated in my own businesses until I discovered the 7 Deadly Attacks that every entrepreneur and business will need to overcome to succeed.
* Tired of working so hard with very little progress on your top priorities?
* Tried many “success systems” but haven’t found one that works for you?
* Aren’t able to make sustainable, long lasting changes in your business and personal life?
Earn More, Do More, Experience More…
People who are busy succeeding are often looking for a way to earn more, do more and experience more out of life.
Your problem is finding the time and energy in today’s fast pace of life and business.
Your second biggest challenge is that you don’t know what your top priorities really are.
For others it is keeping the momentum going once they get started on the path to greater results.
Often, more of what you don’t want from life shows up. Fighting through the chaos and clutter of your life in order to find more balance and success can feel like walking uphill with a 100 pound boulder tied around your ankle.
What’s worse is getting frustrated and angry because you know there is a better way to live, but you haven’t yet found it.
Even worse is that you are a smart and educated person who knows what you need to do to get from step 1 to the point of reaching your goals and reaching your fullest potential.
Your biggest challenge is that you lack focus and clarity around your top priorities. Once you know your top priorities, your second biggest obstacle will be reaching them and accomplishing them as fast as is humanly possible.
There is such a system that’s waiting for you right now. The path is simple to follow as long as you get on it today. How fast do you want to sharpen your competitive edge, grow more, and experience more?
Power comes from Clarity and Simplicity.
The reason why you are not achieving more of what you want today is that we live in the age of diversion and distraction.
Many people have a variety of labels they use in order to rationalize their shortcomings and missed attempts at reaching their new year’s resolutions and goals to only meet with repeated failure.
You have buried deep inside of you abilities, gifts and talents to achieve whatever you want in your life and business. Your biggest challenge is getting it all done in this lifetime. It’s possible for you to achieve the most important things you want faster than you can imagine.
Many people today treat their mind like a garbage dump or junkyard…don’t let that happen to you.
You can easily transform your mind into a goldmine of wisdom, power and profitable innovations.
