If you don’t ask, you won’t get

If you don’t ask, you won’t get. Nearly all of my success can be attributed to me going out of my way to ask for something. Stepping outside the box, and outside the comfort zone, in order to go after something that I really wanted, but wasn’t really sure how to get. Strategic partnerships, raising capital, growth plans, etc, all have come about because I “tried something”. I’ve felt stuck many times in my life, and if you are at…

The most powerful word is “WHY?”

I love my employees, and my company. I know for a fact that I would never be where I am today without them. For that reason I take very good care of them. One thing I do take very seriously though is the development of my employees. I personally believe that most companies ignore employee development. That is one of the main reasons you see so much turnover. If people stay stagnant, they get bored. It’s human nature! So, I…

Trust your inner “gut feeling”

It took me a long time to learn that if I had a FEELING about something, it was most likely correct. For example, I once hired an employee for a sales position. I had a bad feeling about her from the start. Something just didn’t feel right about her. But, she was pretty convincing that she had contacts already in the industry, and that she could really make a huge difference and come in and generate business quickly. So, I…

You can change your life in one short year

I get asked a lot by people how they can change something that they hate about their life. It may be their job, the hours they work, amount of responsibility, etc. Most of the time though it’s a question about how they can leave their job and start their own business. How can I do it without risking too much? What if it doesn’t work? Can I do it part time? How do I plan? How do I make the…

“Thank you for your business”

“Thank you for your business” Think about it… When is the last time someone said that to you? It’s written everywhere usually. It’s on receipts. It’s always on a company website. But when is the last time someone actually said that to you, live in person? Even more so… When’s the last time someone said it to you, and you felt that they meant it? Its such a simple thing, yet so extremely important that a customer feels that their…

Perception is everything in marketing. . . .

So just recently I went to eat lunch at “Potbelly Sandwiches”. If you haven’t been, I highly suggest it. The place was started in Chicago, and they make an amazing sandwich, and a great salad! It’s a pretty cool place overall. At their busier times, they have a musician sitting there playing and singing. It really gives the atmosphere a very different feel than most restaurants. The young man playing guitar that afternoon was really good. Great voice, good guitar…

Cherish Relationships

I meet a lot of people because I am constantly out, running my businesses, growing my businesses, and my position is that any time I have the opportunity to meet someone new, will seize that opportunity. Why? You never know who that person is, or how they might be able to help you in the future. You may run into someone randomly who will eventually help you grow your business in ways you never even thought possible. More importantly than…

It’s been a while…

Well I officially completely neglected this blog! It was for a good reason though. Business is BOOMING. Every day I fall more in love with the senior care industry. There is just so much opportunity in it. Today I want to talk a little bit about growing your business, because that is exactly what I am working on doing. When you do things the right way marketing wise, and you take care of people the right way, your business WILL…

When life gives you lemons…

We all know the saying. “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade!” I don’t think there’s anywhere that the saying applies more than with entrepreneurs. Most people wake up in the morning and think to themselves “I hope nothing goes wrong today”…. Entrepreneurs wake up in the morning and think “I hope SOMETHING goes wrong today!” We think differently. We love problems. We love fixing problems. Most of us love making money, of course, that’s for all different kinds of…

Entrepreneur, or Self Employed?

Many years ago, I was asked the question by a mentor: “Would you rather be an entrepreneur, or be self employed?”…. My response was “What’s the difference? Aren’t they the same?” What I learned was that they are very different. They are two dreams that are entirely different. But, without really looking into it, you may never know which one you prefer, and what is a better fit for you. With that, I’d like to elaborate on both, so that…
