How to start your on-line empire, fast!

Thursday, October 21st, 2010

I love this new era of cooperative capitalism.  More people are realizing the way to have the planet we all enjoy living on is if we all are abundant, if we all have the life we want.  So let’s help each other get there!

Someone doing his generous share toward this end is Anik Singal.  He’s been recognized in the Inc 500 (#493, with a growth of 609% over 3 years!).  Anik is giving away his 4 simple formulas:  Market, Product, Traffic, and List Empire.

Anik, Thanks for being so generous with your simple, straight-forward How-To.

The 7-Step Plan for Project Success

Saturday, September 4th, 2010

My blog was going to be up soon (it is now!), so I started planning what I could share with you to help your business be more successful.   So I asked myself: “What made my projects so successful in my Fortune 100 career?”  Seven steps came to mind.

  1. Identify the area that needs change.
  2. Gather the facts.  What’s the current situation?
  3. Identify the new objectives, goals.  Specifically, what needs to change?
  4. Structure the roadmap, identify the steps, from where you are now (#2) to where you want to be (#3).
    This is the beginning of a project plan.
  5. Identify the milestones; identify the timelines and predecessors for each step; assign the resources (staff and outsource vendors) needed to get it done.
    Now you really have a project plan!
  6. Manage the plan.  Make sure the resources are staying on taks; hold them accountable.  Check progress against the plan and keep adjusting the course.  (A good project manager will do all this for you.)
  7. Reward success.
    …This helps ensure even better success on the next project!

Yes, it really is that straightforward.  We will take this a step further on the next YourBizLady radio show.  Stay tuned!

How to get there from here

Friday, June 11th, 2010

Are you doing things in the right sequence to achieve your dreams?  If you’re not, it’s like trying to drive somewhere and scrambling the directions before you start out.  (“Go 5 blocks and turn right” lands you in a VERY different place if you didn’t first turn left at the traffic light!)

To hear some incredible business sequencing pointers from an expert in her field, click here: Business Transformation to find out what Maria Simone is offering!  She has a “Business Transformation Kit” that includes an Audio download of “7 Practical Steps To Create The Business Of Your Dreams.”

Listen carefully and take serious notes!  We all tend to try to do step 6 in our businesses way before we do 1 through 5 – but that’s just crazy-making!  It delays use from reaching our vision.

Go there Now, and make your business dreams a reality!
Here’s to ALL of our successes!

Revolutionizing Your Business – by the Numbers

Monday, May 24th, 2010

I’ve just spent a few days at the CEO Space* May forum where Brett Harward was one of the favorite speakers, rocking the world of a few business owners with his information.   According to Brett, the first law of business says “It is impossible to manage or control what you cannot or do not measure.”  Learning the language of numbers can improve your success as a business owner. They can

  • Increase the speed of decision making.
  • Be used as a measurement for organizational accountability.
  • Identify where to focus management attention.

When the CEO or business owner is accountable to specific numbers within a specific time frame, then there are quantifiable, measurable results.  If you want to learn more about numbers management and revolutionize your business, check out his free training videos at ItIsArevolution.com.

* For more information on how you can participate at CEO Space, email our expert Jim Dygert: Jim@CEOspace.net.

Cheers!
