DEEP THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:   What You Don’t Know You Don’t Know Can Kill Your Business

DEEP THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: What You Don’t Know You Don’t Know Can Kill Your Business

Everything is status quo… you do it all the same way all the time. That’s always how you’ve done it and it works. Well, maybe it doesn’t work well, but it works for you. Sure it’s hard work, but it is supposed to be hard. (“YUP, that’s why it’s called work”, said Grandpa.) It’s been ingrained into your brain that this is only way you will ever get ahead… Work work work and more work when you’re done with that. This is how it’s done. Consider this…It all boils down to what you know. That’s how you run your life, how you run your business, how you have always navigated through your days. Have you ever asked yourself what if….? What if there was more? Is it remotely possible that how you’ve always done it just isn’t enough? What if what you don’t know you don’t know is killing your business?

Continue the present course while you learn as much as you can. Put a solid foundation in place. Need more education? Get it! Things are perfect… you are perfect. You just aren’t there yet. Figure out what you need to do to get there and go! You are a force to be reckoned with, so make sure you enjoy the voyage along the way.

TO THE BOSS:  12 Daunting Statements That Your Employees Are Afraid to Say to Your Face

TO THE BOSS: 12 Daunting Statements That Your Employees Are Afraid to Say to Your Face

Being the boss has its perks. Usually you have a good parking space, you can set hour own hours (which basically means that although you are ALWAYS working no one is tracking how long your lunch is, etc.), and you have a position of authority and purpose. Before you go feeling too smug and comfy, grab yourself a cup of coffee, kick back, and prepare yourself… You are the boss, and there are things you need to know. This isn’t about time management and sales goals for the upcoming year. NOPE… this one is about you. If you are sharp, you are cognizant of the invisible wall which separates you from the rest of the staff. There are jokes you won’t be in on, certain things that you won’t understand, and a lot of words which will be left unsaid. It is time for you to hear those words. This is not a comprehensive list, and not all will apply to you. If the shoe doesn’t fit, pat yourself on the back and move on. Check yourself as you read these, and try not to be oversensitive to the ones that do apply.

You better want to know if your customers are satisfied, if they would come to you again, and if there are things you could have done better.
