How To Sell Like Las Vegas, Only Better

The City That Never Sleeps is New York, but really, it should be Las Vegas. When you’re on The Strip in Las Vegas late at night, you start to wonder if anyone will ever go to sleep. Instead, the cash registers and the slot machines and ticket booths keep churning. Where else in the world are people shopping and spending money at all hours of the day? Why do they do it? And how could that possibly have any effect on your business?

Creating Positive Customer Habits That Guarantee Our Product’s Success

Habits are powerful. They are the science behind the drive home from work that we don’t remember, and the morning routine that we complete with our eyes half shut. We all have them, and we all execute them without much thought. So do our customers. The importance of habits in consumer and business behavior has become more apparent to me in recent months. After reading the book The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business by author Charles Duhigg, I have begun to see the cue, routine, and reward loop everywhere, and I just […]

Your Blog Needs One Focus And Many Writers

I had a college professor who had a lot of knowledge and experience that he shared with us through the most incredible droning voice. He spoke. We yawned. He kept speaking. We nodded off. He spoke until nearly all of the class was an immovable gelatinous mass of non-reaction. It’s too bad, really, that he had been given the important topics for our Senior Seminar class. He was the most qualified, but didn’t know how to deliver those qualifications. Few of us probably remember the content; we just remember the delivery. Which brings me to your blog. Is your blog […]

Creating intentional focus has to be... intentional.

Creating Intentional Focus and Building Momentum With Your Product, Business, and Team

One of the lessons that I have been learning over the last few months is the importance of intentional focus. Just last week, I blogged about one way to create focus while inventing and selling new products. For me, the big realization has been that focus has to be intentional. If we don’t demand it, it will never happen. If it never happens, we can will not build the momentum that our business deserves.

Is perfection keeping you from getting started?

Good Enough Is Never Good Enough, And Perfection Is Impossible

You’re struggling to get a project started. You had a project going, but it seems to be dying. Unfortunately, there are two opposing forces that are working against you. You’re either waiting for perfection, or satisfied with mediocrity. Mediocrity and perfection are found at different ends of the spectrum; they seem unrelated. What could they have in common?

It is easy to see how an organized store is able to sell. Is it possible that a "disorganized" store could do the same?

How To Sell Using Both Chaos And Organization

This is a tale of two stores. One store sells furniture and home decor items. The other sells books. One store is organized down to directing the flow of customer traffic. The other does the same, but through disorganized limitation. And each store does, indeed, sell. How can organization and disorganization work when it comes to sales? They both function on a principle of discovery and permission, but do it very differently.

Name It and Claim It – How To Make Your Goals Work Each And Every Time

Can a plan exist if it isn’t on paper? I ask myself this question often because I am continually amazed at how much greater the impact of an idea can be when I choose to write it down, rather than letting it go as a passing thought. I often refer to this concept as “naming it and claiming it”, and I am convinced that it is a big part of what makes a good leader great.

There is always the opportunity to tell a story. That's what your reader wants.

Stop Explaining Yourself And Tell A Story Instead

A good story, even when fiction, isn’t a lie. We find a way to latch onto a story in a way we identify with. We all have the same story with the only difference being the beginning, middle, and end. We go looking for stories in everything and everyone. Understanding the power of story means looking at writing and blogging in a completely different way. Readers want a storyteller, not a salesman. They want a story, not a sale.
