Entrepreneur Weekly Episode 7:Stop. Evaluate And Listen

Comments are off for this post.
Take the time to evaluate your business. That means look at your plan, market, customers, competition, and more. It also means going back, regularly, and reevaluating. For the new entrepreneur, evaluating business prospects may seem to be a daunting task. It is! However, it's vital to the future of your business. You need to know your competition, your costs, your time spent on building it, and where to focus your attention. One mistake you should avoid is seeking out a business with no competition. If smarter, richer, better staffed, and more flexible people aren't doing business there, that may mean [...]

Change may be inevitable, but you can always count on some idiots to refuse it! Don't be an idiot: fix what's broken, or about to break, before it breaks you. One of the biggest challenges that Vero Concepts faces, on the local level, is getting business owners to face up to their shortcomings, mistakes, bad practices, and flaws. For whatever reason, these businesses don't want to hear anything that contradicts their beliefs, however silly they may be. If you're a current business owner, and you suspect you may be hard-of-listening to criticism, take heart! You can change, if you want [...]

Entrepreneur Weekly 5: Business Attention Deficit Disorder

Comments are off for this post.
Don't let Business Attention Deficit Disorder steer you off course. Keep your focus on the goal: your bottom line, according to your plan. For the business owner who wants to be on top of things, BADD can be a threat to the business that must not be underestimated. Business Attention Deficit Disorder will kill your business, if you let it. Taking your eye off the goal, and chasing after BSO's (Bright Shiny Objects) can be a fatal mistake. Even if you are a cutting edge, new-technology-driven enterprise, letting your focus stray from the plan you created may destroy your business. [...]

Comments are off for this post.
Business identity is internal. Branding is external. Get these right, and you just might profit from the proper practice of both! Answer this question: “Why should the World care about my business?” If you're stuck for an answer, you may have a branding problem. Your brand represents how much the World loves and respects your business. Love and respect may not seem like a hard-nosed business consideration, but they will definitely affects your bottom line. Your business identity is all about how you run the business, day to day. It's your culture, practices, ethics, etc. It's not about your brand, [...]

Comments are off for this post.
If it's not what you know, but who you know, do you know if who you know is bad for you?!”   While 'Bad Is the New Good', Bad Company is not! Bad Company can be a bad business plan, bad associates and colleagues, bad employees (or a lack of them), or a bad attitude (a/k/a stinking thinking). Since most businesses fail, it's up to you to do everything you can to survive in today's fast-moving business climate. First, take a look at your business plan. Don't have one? Bad for your company! Get going on writing down your business [...]
