The days of the barrel-chested bully pushing you into a purchase are over. The charmer without substance now loses more than they win. Potential clients are more aware, more strategic and more educated.
We all need to take a breath and embrace the humbling – perhaps even embarrassing – truth:
A couple of years ago, I was retained to help a struggling business regain its profitability. After six days, I told the CEO that the problem was not sales-related. The problem was too much overhead and debt. The CEO disagreed with my assessment – and to my great relief my contract was quietly terminated. The company went out of business eight months later.
Running a debt-free business is probably contrary to everything that you have ever learned. And you might wonder why you should do it.
Sometimes life can be overwhelming with all the choices we have to make. A helpful recipe for success is to keep it simple. I believe that deep down everyone wants to improve and lead their best life.
Seems easy enough, but often challenging to implement because you need clarity and the courage to take action.
In my experience as a business owner and my family life every time I would put stuff off or Procrastinate I would get slapped and sometimes it hurt.
In order to overcome a procrastination we must first understand it. Procrastination is the avoidance of doing a task which needs to be done–postponing until tomorrow what can be done today. It not only affects a person’s work but also commonly involves feelings of guilt, inadequacy, self disgust, stress and even depression.
