Protecting your customers’ privacy

Voluntarily or not, your customers have to trust your business processes. While you may be unaware of the extent to which that trust goes, you must appreciate that it exists.

A safer way to introduce your new product to market

Your business was likely built on a core product; essentially the backbone of your company. There’s nothing wrong with attempting to venture into a new market with a new product line. In fact you’ll need to if you ever want to grow. However, don’t get over-excited and fall victim to the newness of it all. […]

The two important time-slots business owners must reserve every day

As a business owner, you dedicate most (if not all) of your day toward building / selling / managing your company.

Make business decisions based on risk, not fear

While similar, there is a fairly significant distinction between risk and fear. As a business owner, you need to understand what sets them apart. Risk is calculated. It’s quantifiable. If you sit down and analyze all of the data, you can come up with a mathematical equation to determine a factual level of risk. Fear […]

Staying positive isn’t just important for your business

As a business owner, you know bad things happen. Payments don’t come in, employees don’t show up, and customers don’t walk though the door. So it’s hard to always be positive when it seems like the cards are stacked against you. When you leave at night, you don’t have the luxury of leaving work at […]

Don’t just talk to your customers… listen to them

As a business owner, you should always be ready to have conversations with your customers. Just recognize the line between courtesy chit-chat and rambling. Ignore the little devil on your shoulder who tries to convince you to go on and on about your company. People may appreciate a few interesting points, but they really want […]

In business, embrace everyone – even those you don’t necessarily like

If you’re running a business, you’ll inevitably come across someone who just rubs you the wrong way for one reason or another. Maybe it’s their attitude; maybe it’s their demeanor; or maybe you just can’t get past an altercation that happened 10 years ago. Whatever the reason, let it go. There’s nothing wrong with not […]
