007 – Building A Business On Purpose

Building a growing, thriving, successful business isn’t a given.  It won’t just fall out of the sky… you can’t just build it and the customers will come.

Over the years, I’ve made a few observations, my informal case study, into what makes for a successful business.  

Mentioned in this episode:

  • The crazy stats – few businesses make it to their 5 year anniversary & even fewer make it to their 10th anniversary and beyond.
  • The 3 things that I’ve noticed among the successful businesses around me… what they do that others don’t do (or don’t do consistently).

Here’s a list of the books & resources mentioned in this episode*:

  • 12 Week Year – Get More Done in 12 Weeks Than Others Do in 12 Months – by Brian P Moran and Michael Lennington
  • Traction – Get a Grip On Your Business by Gino Wickman
  • Smart Leaders Sell by Jessica Lorimer (she also has a 90 Day Sales Planner)
  • You’re a Badass & You’re A Badass at Making Money by Jen Sincero
  • Think And Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
  • The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod

I also mentioned my very own business trackers & spreadsheet templates.  If you’d like to get access to the business trackers that I’m working on…join the wait list here.

006 – The Truth About 6 Figures

Six Figures isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be, especially when there seems to be a moving target & every changing definition that suits the exclaimer…

I’m calling BS on 6 figure claims in marketing…it’s bothersome and frustrating unless you ask the right questions and shift your focus.  It’s easier than you think and it’s probably not what you think it is.

In today’s episode, I have a few questions for you.  What to contemplate and ponder whenever you hear the works “6 figures” touted somewhere on someone’s sales copy…

I’m not saying that it’s not true 6 figures but what I am saying is be cautious and read between the lines – IE: revenue versus profit or billed versus cash collected.  

The words barely register but there is a huge difference. And let’s not forget cashflow. That’s the second layer to ponder…
