How To Achieve Your Goals and Be Happy Along The Way

Most of us have heard the words to the effect “it is about the journey and not the destination”. That can be really challenging to accept when you can clearly see the destination and it seems to be very distant. Here is the key – one step at a time in the direction of your intended outcome with you being passionate about the outcome.

I have a client who has a retail business. He bought this business and he was comfortable with what to do because he had worked in the business for a number of years before having the opportunity to buy it. My job was to help him advance his skills in running a business. The measurement of project success is higher revenue and profits.

Break Up Goals Into Steps 300x300 How To Achieve Your Goals and Be Happy Along The WayWell into the coaching program, he told me he really didn’t like the products that he sold. With that energy or lack of energy he was not doing the fundamental steps of an owner. I asked him that if he sold or closed down this business what would he do. He said another business selling products or services to customers. I then showed him how everything we were working on was needed to be done in any business. I further advised him that the best exist strategy was to strengthen the business results since that is how he would get the best purchase price for the company.

Today his sales are becoming increasing stronger and he has renewed energy for the business. What happened? First he started tracking key statistics. That alone often will result in business increasing. As business began to pick up he began to see new opportunities for creative display and pricing of product. He started spending more time himself with customers and got more ideas. So instead of continuing to spiraling downward, the trends reversed. Today he installing new systems software and implement several important marketing action plans.

The product line didn’t change. What changed was how he viewed the business and what he was learning about running any business that he decided to go into. Actually he is looking to add a new location and add a new product line that will appeal to his existing customer base.

How did he move to being happy about what he was doing? 1. He began to see the opportunities with the business that he had 2. He began following very clear advice and experienced positive results. Where is he on goal achievement? When we started like I do with every client we agreed on what would be the measure of success for the coaching program. Right now as a rate of sales, he is beating that goal.

Intellectual Understanding Does Not Mean You Will Implement 

Another client told me recently  the number one benefit of my program was keeping them focused on what is important.

In my experience people make a lot of progress during coaching and lose momentum if they interrupt the coaching process. For a Free Coaching Consultation Click Here

The Murder of The Middle Class by Wayne Allyn Root

Steve Pohlit and Wayne Allyn Root 225x300 The Murder of The Middle Class by Wayne Allyn Root On July 11, 2014 Steve Pohlit interviewed Wayne Ally Root covering the erosion of the American dream especially for the middle class.

Listen in as Steve explores with Wayne the evidence  this  destruction of the middle class was purposeful which is why he names his newest book The Murder of The Middle Class. You will be shocked at how it all started, to learn about the true unemployment rate, the unsustainable entitlement statistics and more.

Wayne reminds us that nearly half his book is devoted to solutions to save this country. We must first start with the facts of where we are at now no matter how hard they are to face and how disturbing they may be.

Sit back pay attention to a fact filled and  energy packed hour with Wayne Allyn Root.

What Distinguishes My Business and Real Estate Investment Coaching and Consulting Practice From Nearly All Others and Is The Foundation of My Results Guaranteed Coaching Program

Fail Proof System!

There is a fail proof system to organize and manage any business. In fact cities and countries should use the system. Note this does not mean it is cookie cutter. It must me adopted for your company.

Successful Experience

I have extensive experience as an executive, business owner, entrepreneur, consultant and coach in the following industries:

Real Estate Investment – the focus of my business now
Retail
-Restaurants
-Convenience Stores
-Women’s clothing (big international business)
-Auto Parts
-Motorcycle
-Drugstores
Manufacturing
-Heave equipment
-high tech
-Auto Glass
Distribution
Internet
-Service Provider
-Social Media
-Marketing
Long Haul Trucking
Utility Trailers
Excavation
General Contracting/Construction

A number of the businesses are very large. One is more than $15 billion. Others are small to medium size companies and I have helped many independent entrepreneurs. This experience led to fine tune systems for success. Last year I released my first book “Building Business Profits Fast

Enhanced Systems

I have since been coached and mentored on enhanced system which are touched on in the book but not in-depth. The three main parts of the enhanced system are:

1. Organization Development or the Org Board
2. Admin Scale or The Spine
3. Management by Statistics

The scope of what are in these three categories is extensive. If we work together you will know the source and I will guide you step by step on how to implement these major tools. For now here is a brief summary

Org Board

Every company has 7 divisions and this applies to whether you are one person or millions. Knowing how to set up and manage your company within the structure of these divisions literally takes out the guess work in how to succeed. The next two areas actually fall under the umbrella of the org board – or at least that is how I think about it.

Admin Scale

My mentor refers to this as The Spine because like the human spine if one of the parts are damaged or out there is great pain. The Admin Scale consists of

Goals
Purposes
Policy
Plans
Programs
Projects
Orders
Ideal Scenes
Stats
Valuable Final Product

Before I continue with the last part I want you to know that my coaching and consulting work accelerates the implementation of all of this by my attention to what is most important now and the gradually painting the entire picture. My message to you is do not be intimidated by the scope of what I am briefly describing here. Welcome it because you are now learning about the processes that if followed mean you cannot fail. You cannot!

Management by Statistics - There are 6 Basic Statistical Trends

(From a priority point of view capturing the data and running the graphs are just about the top of the list. This specific tool is the  reason I can confidently offer

Results Guaranteed What Distinguishes My Business and Real Estate Investment Coaching and Consulting Practice From Nearly All Others and Is The Foundation of My Results Guaranteed Coaching ProgramResults Guaranteed Coaching 

Non- Existence
Danger
Emergency
Normal
Affluence
Power

I am including one example of one graph. Here is the important point: once you know the condition (what graph you are in) for any function, division or overall company performance there is a precise formula you follow for that condition. To follow it effectively the principles of the Org Board and Admin Scale must largely be in place.

Scandals , US Deficit, Foreclosures….What Is The Solution?

George Ross and Victor Menasce 300x219 Scandals , US Deficit, Foreclosures....What Is The Solution?

George Ross and Victor Menasce

Stop reading the newspapers, watching TV and engaging in conversations with others about negative news headlines. George Ross, Donald Trump’s key attorney and deal closure reminds us that most news is not accurate and at the very least not the complete picture. As importantly, the most immediate item that affects us individually is what we do for ourselves.

Wayne’s Allyn Root coaches his clients on implementing a success plan that is not dependent on an employer. More specifically start your own business. He uses the opportunities for learning marketing and developing a network that is taught by direct sales companies or network marketing companies as a great opportunity to be your own boss, work with other successful people and not have to worry about what an employer will do.

One of the areas of my own business interests is being with an organization that coaches business owners and other interested in successful real estate investing how to move forward and achieve continually increasing performance goals. The theme here is individual responsibility for what happens in your life. Most of us have the resources to move forward and do a lot better than we are doing today. I like the example I heard once where the question was asked “if you had the opportunity to buy a new $100,000 car for $5000 would you be able to figure out how to come up with the $5000? Most everyone said yes. Then why would you ever resist the opportunity to start your own business because you didn’t have a couple thousand dollars you need for basic infrastructure and expenses during the start up period?

Are you unemployed? Are you struggling to make ends meet? Are you unhappy with the work you do? Don’t look outside of yourself for someone to solve these or any other issue. Do you feel you don’t have enough knowledge or education? I just finished a couple days of coaching a person who has three businesses, lives in a million dollar home with a quarter million dollar boat outside. He is a high school graduate. He figured it out. You may know of others like that or read about them.

If you want some ideas, take advantage of my complimentary coaching call. Click Here to begin. Also be sure to register on this page for my messages by email. Each one is packed with valuable information to help you.

Bottom line: you are responsible and the only way to solve any situation you don’t prefer in your life is to develop an action plan and then take action.

Success Mastery: The Basic Structure For Business Success

Success Mastery Success Mastery: The Basic Structure For Business Success This Basis Structure Applies To Every Business

Clear Definition of Your Business – I use the phrase Executive Summary. Elevator Pitch is also very common. What is not taught very well is how to structure this for maximum retention by the listener and optimum value for your business. This area is supported by your business name and your domain name. Note: I do not focus on legal structure at this point unless you already have a level of experience with your business.

Why – So you have structured and are able to present your Executive Summary. Great now what is your Why for doing it? If your why is not big and bold enough you are will lose interest and focus. If you Why is because that is how you want to make money and your Why then is all about the money, your focus on what is required will wane and you will not achieve your business goals.

Results Guaranteed 300x227 Success Mastery: The Basic Structure For Business SuccessNote: Each of these points for the foundation of my Results Guaranteed Coaching Program

Clearly Defined Outcome – This is always stated in measurable terms meaning revenue and profit if you are marketing products or services. If you are a real estate investor this is defined as business income – what you deposit in the bank from your deals that you can spend. The time line for this measurement varies depending on the business. However is almost always at least a year.

Define The Organization Structure Required When Your Business Is Fully Operational – Yes this is done in the early stages of the coaching program because business owners and entrepreneurs need to have a vision of what they are building plus the “Org Board” serves as a goal for building the team of people including outside resources that will help the owner or CEO achieve the intended results. This step in terms of the scope and detail that I know teach is actually new in the last 18 months.

Are you on my email list? If not – see the subscribe box on the upper right corner of this page. Do it now and start receiving very valuable Build Business Profits information.

Time Phased Income Goals – What this means is we take defined outcome goal which we previously said is normally defined as an annual goal and roll that back until we have agreed upon monthly targets and in many cases weekly and daily targets. We set this up on a proprietary program so you see the numbers and a graph of the numbers. This is the start of the process where you cannot fail if you follow it.

You are invited to connect with my Facebook Page http://facebook.com/buildprofits

Gold Formula 300x180 Success Mastery: The Basic Structure For Business SuccessTime Phased Action Plans - Similar in principle to time phased income goals, I am sure you understand that income is an effect, action is the cause. However not every action results in income. So I spend a lot of time with clients on prioritizing actions and measuring the effect of those actions.  We use the same program where we set targets, measure actual statistics against the targets, graph both and use what the graphs are telling us as to the adjustments the actions that need to be made.  This is the implementation of The Gold Formula tm

This is the basic infrastructure of Building Business Profits Fast   the title of my first book. My next book is taking this foundation and going deeper into Building Real Estate Investment Business Profits Fast.  Again if your are on my email list you will be receiving excerpts from my books and more.

Success Mastery: The 5 Pillars of Business Success

Success Mastery Success Mastery: The 5 Pillars of Business SuccessWhat happens when you apply the 80:20 rule to the actions that must be completed to achieve stellar revenue and profit growth?

These Results:

Extraordinary profits

Harmonious work environment

Continual positive growth in revenue and profits that far surpasses your competition.

How do you achieve these goals?

Take a look at how most companies are run and don’t do what they do. People in most companies spend the majority of their time on activities that have little or no impact on building revenue and profits.

Your Focus!

First there are only five (5) areas of business that need your attention. Hold out your hand and look at your fingers and thumb – 5. Now follow with me on this because I am not in a room with you to reinforce the point. Hold out your hand and assign each of the (5) pillars as follows:

1.Sales – thumb
2.Gross Margin – index finger
3.Expenses – your “flip em” finger
4.Working Capital - next finger
5.Employees – pinky

80% of your time as an owner or CEO should be spent on these 5 pillars and 80% of the 80% should be spent on Sales (includes PR, marketing) and Gross Margin – the first two.  I will add that it is not just the current day’s or week’s performance. As founder you are the leader of these organizational divisions and most of all you are responsible for the strategic expansion of the business.

Normally there are minimal issues with managing liquidity and if any area of expense begins to be out of balance, it doesn’t hurt much while you are bringing it back in line.

When you are achieving extraordinary sales and gross margin, everyone wants to work for you. Of course there is a very precise technology in hiring the right people and having them become successful.

Again there is a precise technology to be used in each of the five pillars that is outside the scope of this article. However, if you focus on marketing, PR, sales and margin you will likely be doing very well while you fine tune the entire organizational structure toward your perfect business model. 

Nearly every article published at www.stevepohlit.com expanded upon the management of components of the five pillars. In most cases, the information contains practical advice that you can implement beginning today.

I have found that if the concepts are not actionable quickly and do not yield positive results quickly, people lose interest. It is no different than an exercise program.

If physical exercise is too rigorous, too demanding or takes too much time, it will not be sustained over time. Running a company is no different. The process must result in continual positive feedback as to progress toward achieving measurable goals.

Right now list the top 3 issues that are holding you back from making breakthrough profits in your business. Then start devoting at least 80% of your time solving those three issues. Once solved, do it again and keep doing it. Simple stuff.

For Your Success!

Success Mastery – Simple Actions To Jump Start The Profit Performance of Your Business

Build Business Profits Success Mastery   Simple Actions To Jump Start The Profit Performance of Your BusinessOne of the simplest and most valuable things to do is look at your business from the perspective of your customer. If you have a retail store, shop it or hire a mystery shopper. If you have a customer service center, call them. If you develop information products that you sell on line, ask your customers 90 days later how they have benefited from the product and what else they would like to have seen included. If you have a membership program, and someone drops out, stay in touch to find out what it takes to get them back.

Recently I discontinued a membership program where I was paying a lot of money each month – much more than $100. I have not received one call or even one email asking me why. This is really amazing considering how much money it takes to get a person to sign up for the basic plan yet alone the plan I was in.

Here is another very valuable suggestion.   Follow Your Instincts! I have said this before and will be saying it in many articles in the future. Every client I have worked with knew the fundamental solutions to the issues they asked me to help them with. For a whole host of reasons they didn’t act and accepted inertia. In nearly every case the solutions were obvious and intellectually simple.

Right now list the top 3 issues that are holding you back from making breakthrough profits in your business. Then start devoting at least 80% of your time solving those three issues. Once solved, do it again and keep doing it. Simple stuff.

A Very Surprising Outcome To A 2 Minute Presentation

My 2 Minute Presentation

I advise all coaching clients and through forums like this to be very clear about what will help you. I implement what I advise so last night at a real estate investment association meeting in the Tampa Florida area I made two very short announcements

1. I acknowledged the coaches in the room then said the fastest way to grow a successful business is by working with right coach. I referenced my Results Guaranteed Coaching Program where most of the coaching fees for a real estate investment client are paid from the profits of real estate transactions that I coach them on finding.

2. I was somewhat hesitant to talk about the real estate deals in the pipeline since all of them for me are in other states. However I proceeded with emphasis on a  turnkey bulk buy opportunity plus a single family turnkey opportunity with cash on cash returns of between 14.5% and 17% .I love this model because your money is working  well for you with really great returns secured by the home.  The link for more information on the Turnkey Residential Property Opportunities Click Here 

Finally I asked the following:

Looking for a 3/2/2 with an in- ground pool for a lease option deal in the Sarasota market

Does anyone know of a good source of money – below 10% interest rate.

All the above was done in about 2 minutes and here are the results:

One person said he wanted me to coach him.

One person said he had $100,000 to put to work on the turnkey properties and wanted more information

I have lead on the Sarasota lease option request

I have a lead on the money request

The First Quarter Ends Soon – Are You On Track Track To Achieving Your Goals?

profit performance The First Quarter Ends Soon   Are You On Track Track To Achieving Your Goals?

Achieve Your Goals With A Proven Process for Success

As soon as I post a headline like the one above along with this chart most people are thinking money.

Goal Achievement Is Not About The Money

If it is not about the money, then why is there so much focus on the money? Because income is the one objective statistic of results achievement. Everyone I work with tracks more than 5 statistics on a daily weekly basis intended on moving them toward their income goal. These statistics are measured and graphed. The graph tells us the condition of that statistic and we can then apply an action based on the condition. For example if the action is to communicate with relevant groups on social media sites like Facebook and LinkedIn a target is set for how often this will be done. The target is set along with all other action steps based on the persons time availability considering other goals.

What Other Goals?

Family
Health
Spirituality
Community

As an example at the start of the this year I renewed my commitment to achieving my ideal weight. A month into this year I really had not made much progress. Then I noticed a group formed to achieve healthy weight management and lifestyle goals. I joined. Now one month later I have made great progress to achieving my goal. It looks to me like I will hit my goal in 2-2.5 months. Like in business there are key statistics I am tracking and not just my weight. So the logic we use in business is applied to other goals that we define as being important. I coach people on related goals if they want that help along with achieving their business goals. Normally goals in the areas of health, family, spirituality become increasingly important topics when income goals are not being achieved.

Great Steve But What About You – How Are You Progressing Toward Achieving Your Goals?

This is a fair question as I should be a demonstration of my coaching process working. I already addressed the progress of one major goal. In the area of my own business performance, I have not been on track in January and February. Toward the beginning of February, I took action intended to move my results close to or ahead of plan. I am happy to say there has been significant progress in the past three weeks and I can see the statistics I track showing me I am moving in the right direction now. There is more to do. However the stats I track tell me actions needed.

The Secret Sauce

1. Why – your why statement for each goal is very important. My Why Statement was the first document I developed before starting on my plan to achieve my ideal weight. This was supported by like minded people. Being in the group I am in is very valuable. In business having a clear why and having a coach makes all the difference. I know you think I am just saying that because part of my business is being a coach. If that is your view nothing I write here is going to change that. I do suggest you take a poll of successful people and ask them if they have worked with a coach and did it help them.

2. Statistics – tracking and graphing stats is so important. The graph tells you what to do. This is at the foundation of my coaching and is the biggest advancement I have made in my career. I learned this in the Stats Seminar led by Meir Ezra

Now It Is Your Turn

If you are not on track – what are you going to do about it and when?

No Hype – No BS – Just The Facts
