All Products Need to be Action Products!

Do you know what the number one selling movie genre is….. drumroll please….. it’s not romance, it’s not comedy, .... it’s action!  That's right folks, people love action movies, action is easy to relate to, it's exciting and it takes us out of our ordinary lives for a quick escape.  When we read action in a book it’s easy to visualize.  Take a trick from the writers guild, instead of telling people about your product, help them see your produ [...] ...

Thanksgiving is a Boon for more than the Black Friday Kickoff!

Thanksgiving celebrations are a centuries-old tradition and they need no introduction.  The wonderful truth is that just about every one on the planet has something to be thankful for.  It doesn't have to be something new or big, just something that brings joy and gratefulness to our hearts.  There is no question that there's much that's wrong in the world, but today we can focus on what's right.  The value of this age old tradition is enormous with many studies proving the [...] ...

No Idea is Perfect, Mistaking Your Way to Better Products

Original thinking and innovative new ideas are to business and progress what bees are to the pollination of the food chain.  Those little buzzing, bumbling, marvels amble about carrying the essential nectar that ignites new life and growth in plants that would otherwise be impossible.  Likewise, original, outside-of-the-box thinking and ideas rarely come in a complete package.  Big innovative ideas almost always come from bits and pieces of smaller, incomplete ideas that are brou [...] ...

Business Picasso

Have you ever looked at the results of your work and thought….that’s art?  Maybe it was at the end of a challenging sales call or an off-site weekend strategy session or the completion of a complex, multifaceted project.  Real art takes work, lots of work and lots of practice.  Maybe that's why they call it artwork because wherever you see something beautiful and evidence of unique design, craftsmanship and vision you can be sure there was lots of effort and labor to [...] ...

Stop Listening to your Customers!

Stop listening to your customers and start observing.  Paco Underhill's brilliant book “Why We Buy," is filled with hard evidence of shoppers doing the opposite of what they say.  And employees often think that more money is a major key to job satisfaction when in reality it’s way down the list.  So, just listening without observing can be very misleading!  It’s only when you take the time to observe and ask questions in order to really understand the probl [...] ...

Differentiate or Die!

Trying to break into an entrenched market where customers are already using your competitors product can be extremely difficult!!  Research shows that many consumers establish buying habits and unless your product is at least 9 times better that your competitors you will have very little chance of dislodging them.  That's right 9 times!!  But many a sales or marketing person sees this as only a budget issue, meaning if given enough money and time to lure the customer away it can [...] ...

Is a bad plan is better than no plan?

It was sometime ago that I was flying over the Rocky Mountains of Colorado in a single engine airplane at 18,000 feet, in clouds so thick you could barely see the wingtips.  With no visual references outside the aircraft I had to trust my aircraft instruments and my training for navigation.  Everything was going well for about an hour and a half then suddenly ice begin to accumulate on my wings.  (For non-pilots this is an extremely dangerous condition because enough ice on the w [...] ...

Obscure Change = Big Opportunity?

Hopefully by now, every regular reader knows that change always holds hidden opportunity.  Sometimes the smallest and seemingly most inconsequential changes can spell big opportunity to those who are paying attention!  And even the biggest seemingly negative changes hold positive opportunity for those who are tenacious enough to find it!  Today’s post is intended to stretch your peripheral awareness of international events and their impact on your local world.  So, wha [...] ...

Business Innovator = Focus = Performance 

Focus is to performance what fuel is to fire!  Unfortunately, it's easy to lose focus in business because of the numerous seemingly important distractions that bombard us daily.  But remember, anything that divides our attention, weakens our focus and our performance.  Focus is singleness of purpose and undivided attention.  So, the biggest difficulty in attaining high performance comes from the inability to determine what single element needs the undivided attention of the [...] ...

Six ways to identify a”Free" Addict

Are your products and services competing with the feel-good feeling of free?  I don't know about you, but I have to be really careful about giving away free stuff, because free stuff really ain't free!  Free stuff always has a cost.  Just remember, there are people out there who just love chasing the feeling they get from something free.  For them, “free” is not the gateway drug to becoming a paying customer, for them “free” is the product they are lo [...] ...
