happiness, profitable service business, profitable business, repeat customers, happy business owner, ideal customers

In my personal quest to unravel the “happiness equation” I recieved this feedback from a reader of this blog. I had posted an article about happiness on one of my LinkedIn groups. I recieved a few comments and one of comments was:

“In the long run happiness just may stumble upon one who deserves it.”

I will have to admit, that the topic of happiness is one of my favorite to write about. There are so many different opinions and thoughts that people have when discussing this topic. Everyone is interested in finding happiness, but the definition is different for everyone. This naturally creates a different path for everyone, even when we are Continue reading »

planning, achievable goals, destiny, personal growth,

1. Plan a Preferred Future

As Lewis Carroll said: “If you don’t know where you are going, then any road will get you there.”  In 2013 take time to examine and discuss the details of every aspect of your lives, personal and professional, to achieve integrated success and happiness.

2. Be Pragmatic

In most of our near future, few of us will be playing for the NBA. The future has to reflect what is physically possible with available resources and limitations. We all need to create filters to keep us from wasting time and energy on what’s unachievable or irrelevant. See S.M.A.R.T. goals. Continue reading »

Here are five observations about the entrepreneurial mind and personality.

1. Entrepreneurs are passionate, inside and outside of work.

Whatever they immerse themselves in, entrepreneurs typically invest fully and passionately. This extends beyond business building into many aspects of life outside the workplace.

2. Entrepreneurs are committed to building businesses, not just coming up with great ideas.

Most people with ideas don’t build businesses. Most entrepreneurs we know look for good businesses to build, given their area of expertise. We’ve met countless individuals with a “great idea” who never Continue reading »

The day you find out WHY you are born is different for everybody. The reason WHY you were born maybe to pursue a passion of yours. It maybe for religious reasons, or for philanthropic reasons. It maybe to just live a great life. There maybe multiple reasons WHY you feel you were born. There is no right or wrong answer.

For a passionate entrepreneur like myself one of  the reasons WHY I was born is clear. It is to build businesses. I love building businesses. I love the challenge, the risk, the reward, the chase, the highs, and the lows. I love learning about Continue reading »

“Inspiring others towards happiness brings you happiness”-Anonymous

Happiness seems to be one of those subjects that has always been intriguing to my readers and me. It is that elusive thought or feeling that we have in our mind. Some people define happiness as a place, such as Florida or a nice warm climate fishing village on the Mediterranean sea. We have this thought in our minds that helps us get through the day-to-day. For others, happiness is a specific time in the future. Some people look forward to the day when they no longer have to do X,Y, and Z. Or they look forward to the day when they will be retired. This concept of retirement is interesting. I define retirement as a state of Continue reading »

Personal Development, business coaching, happiness,personal choices 

 1. Accept the situation.

This first choice is the most common choice. Most people tend to just accept the situation that they are in. The example that I will use is the case of the business owner. Mr. business owner is not happy with the way that his business is going. The business isn’t growing very much. He is tired of the everyday grind. He is tired of chasing his tail. He is tired of his team and his employees. However, even though he is not happy he is not willing to do anything about it.  The business is paying his bills and the owner is stuck. Essentially the owner finds their resistance to change greater than the dissatisfaction of his current situation.

2. Remove yourself from the situation.

Option number two is to remove yourself from the situation. Now, if Mr. business owner’s dissatisfaction has increased he may choose to remove himself from the situation. If this is the option that he chooses he may choose to sell his business. This would ensure a complete separation from the unhappy situation. Another alternative would be to hire a manager, someone to run the business.

3. Change the situation.

The last choice you have is to change the situation. Continuing with the business owner scenario, an example of this would be the option to hire new employees, or e-building the team. Sometimes this is the best way to create real change in an organization. Re-building your team and putting the right people on the “bus” can move your business towards its goals in a hurry. Another catalyst for change can be creating a vision, mission, and culture. This is a document that an owner creates to clearly communicate his expectations on what kind of business  they are building. He communicates these expectations to his team members, partners, and customers. Helping to create the business that the owner desires.

These 3 choices remain the same for any situation that you find yourself in. It applies to life as much as it applies to business. Do you have ideas on how to help create change in an organization? Send them to me, I would love to hear them.
