How to beat the Grinch in 2020
The Chronicle’s Business blog / Jerry Bellune
How do you get the Grinch to go away? Think about where you want to go, what you want to do and write it down, advises our friend Ruth King. The simple act of writing it down will propel you to do the goals even if you don’t think about it. A student in Ruth’s BOSS (Business Owner’s Survival School) class wrote down his 1, 3, and 5 year goals and put them away. Years later he found the goals. To his amazement he accomplished most of them without consciously thinking about them. 3 things you want to write down:
1. What net profit per hour do you want in 2020? In other words, for each revenue generating hour how much gross and net profit do you want? The average business is open 2,000 hours a year, closing on New Years Day, Christmas and other holidays.
2. What sales revenue do you want to generate in those days in 2020?
3. Are you happy? If you are, what will you do to stay happy? If not, what will you commit to so that you achieve happiness. If you are not happy, then as the owner, your business suffers. Happiness is a precursor to business success. We share such ideas in “Uncover Your Inner Sales Genius.” For a complimentary copy, email JerryBellune@yahoo.com or call us at 803-359-7633.
