Competition.

How much of business & economic theory has been based around the concept?

What’s happened to this economy of ours, based on the scarcity model of which competition is a core principle? (For anyone who hasn’t picked up a newspaper in the last year - it hasn’t exactly been doing as hot as most would like)

What are the consequences of continuing to operate in the world from a belief system dictating there must be a winner and a loser in all outcomes?

Are your results really dependent on how others around you conduct their lives?

Your success in business has NOTHING to do with the “competition.” What any other company or person is doing has NOTHING to do with t…

F.O.R.M. - Tips For Networking Your Small Business

Beyond The Weather: Small Talk Tips For Networking Your Small BusinessBy Caroline Melberg

Have you ever been invited to a business networking meeting or luncheon, or thought about going to your chamber of commerce's networking events, but decided not to because you never know what to say to get the conversation started?

I've been there – and here's the simple trick I learned to help me feel comfortable with the cocktail party small talk. Most people who know me wouldn't think of me as "shy" – and I'm not – most of the time. When it comes to "networking" though, I used to struggle with making small talk.

That is, until I learned the F.O.R.M. trick.

F.O.R.M. works great because it works as a memory tool for when you are in social situations and you want to get to know the person you are talking with, and you want that person to remember you – and your business. Instead of talking about the weather, use FORM to make your conversation count.

Discover Your Destiny by Robin Sharma

Everything occurring in your life has been perfectly orchestrated to inspire your maximum evolution as a human being and bring you into your true power. From my experiences, as long as I am a student of life, learn from my experiences ("mistakes") and allow it to take me where I am meant to go, life has my highest interests in mind.

These words of wisdom are extracts from Robin Sharma, Dr. John F. Demartini and some other books and seminars I have read. Enjoy them.
The best way to learn is to teach.Your life is a treasure and you are so much more than you know.We receive life not from what we want but who we are.Courage is not the absence of fear but the willingness to walk through your fear in pursuit of a goal that is important to you.Your life can be made even better by the things that break your heart.The greatest treasures are the treasures that lie within.Success is important but significance is even better.Have your beautiful things but do not be imprisoned by them.

Can a business increase sales 10%, keep expenses constant and still see a 61% increase in profits?

It can if it looks at increasing the bottom-line the ActionCOACH way and YES you can, if you are willing to change your core principles of business accounting
Conventional business looks at sales from the standpoint of three variables, namely sales, expenses and profits defined by the formula:Sales – Expenses = Profits.In this approach, each variable depends on the other, forcing businesses to look at either increasing sales or decreasing expenses in order to influence profitability.ActionCOACH moves away from this narrow view and breaks the sales variable into five separate components.These variables can be worked individually and across the board to leverage profits on the bottom line.In the ActionCOACH business coaching model, this is termed “The Five Ways”.According to the “Five Ways,” all business is driven by five key profit generating areas: Lead Generation, Conversion Rate, Average Dollar Sale, Average Number of Transactions and Profit Margins. These areas are highlighted in t…
