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?

The Exact Steps To Building Sales and Gross Margin

Like My Facebook Page 

The Exact Steps To Building Sales and Gross Margin

You must first know the customers and products that account for 80% of your sales and profit. Please note that this required in-depth analysis of product sales and gross margin by customer. For some companies they may have a select number of customers that account for a large percentage of the revenue but do not account for the same percentage of profits.

Once you have this data then it is a matter of implementing programs to increase sales (see bonus below). Do not ignore gross margin. You cost of delivering a product or service to a customer could possibly be reduced with a resultant increase in profits, pricing may need to be adjusted or both.

Bonus Note: There are only three ways to increase sales:

1) sell more to existing customers
2) increase the transaction size of sales to existing customers and,
3) acquire new customers.

Also please note that increasing sales does not mean that profits will increase at the same rate or at all. For example, it can cost you more in the first year to acquire a new customer than that customer brings in first year profits. If that is the case you might be asking why would you do that. You might do that if the lifetime value of the customer exceeded the cost of acquiring that customer by enough of a margin to make it worth you time, money and energy.

Recently I completed this exercise with a client and directed the sales manager to schedule a meeting with the largest customer. The purpose of the meeting was to negotiate higher prices. The meeting was successful and the client realized an immediate benefit to profits as a result of this work. The effort was then extended to remaining customers and this client went from a break even profit model to earning 7-9% net income before tax on sales volume of approximately $12 million. Does the process work? It works every time.

Steve’s Law of Growing Market Share Part 1:

If You Use Half The Tools Available For Growing Sales and Gross Margin You Will Be In The Top 20% of Companies In Your Industry As Measured by Annual Sales Growth. 

Steve’s Law of Growing Market Share Part 2:

If you use 90% of the tools available to you for growing market share and profits, you will achieve elite status. If you consistently use those tools each day, week and month, you will maintain elite status and be healthier and happier along the way.

May You Achieve Success Beyond Your Most Amazing Dreams

How To Double, Triple or Even Quadruple Your Business Profits

How To Double, Triple or Even Quadruple Your Business Profits 

Toward the end of November I began positioning our clients for a fast start to increased results in the next year. Each person was assigned the task of preparing the detailed business plan for 2014. Of course I am guiding them on how to do this and I am being guided by my coach and mentor Meir Ezra.

There is a lot of foundational material behind the following outline that includes seminars, courses and more. As you read this understand there is an exact process to follow and that leads me to the one statement that when I heard Meir first say it in November 2012 started a whole new journey for me. That is: “if you follow the process, you cannot fail!”

Step 1: Write The Plan

With every client we move along a gradient scale. What that means is every person has different levels of experience and their plan will mirror their ability to implement. Regardless of experience, every client needs to have a very clear starting point backed by data. The data for established companies will include the history of sales, gross profit, expenses profit, cash and more. The data tells us the condition of the business. With that definition we will apply the right formula.

Clients just starting their business are in a non-existent condition for that business so the first step is for to make themselves known in the market place. Clients with weakening performance are in a danger condition and the first step for that condition is for the owner to by- pass key people and routines. There are six primary conditions and related formulas. The conditions apply to the company and to positions in the company. Graphing the data gives us the condition. Once know we know what to do – apply the right formula.

Know your condition as you move into 2014 so when you define your performance targets you are already implementing the right actions to achieve the targets. The performance targets include all major statistics: sales, profit, cash, debt, owner’s reserve as an example. The plan needs to address scope of business. For example we have real estate investors now expanding from doing their first residential deal to looking at multi-family buy and hold, being a referring funding partner, new construction and more. They are moving along the gradient scale. We have a client with a retail business now looking to expand the product offer, add an online store and open new locations. Candidly with any of these people if I would have begun to paint the expanded picture when I first started working with them they would not have believed it and they likely would have become stuck.

At this point clients are at the stage of the plan being an operating plan. We are currently looking at a near term horizon which for most is the year. For most a more strategic view is still emerging . Right now what is most important is for each to achieve their income goals as that will fuel strategic development.

Company targets are measurements behind the company plan. The company plan and targets are supported by sub-plans or mini plans. The mini plans have scope of business and targets. For example the retailer has a plan and targets for his main location and a plan for the online business and new locations. The real estate investor has a plan and target for the total business and mini plans for the residential buy fix and resale segment, the multi-family buy and hold segment and so on. Another client has plans for providing tech services to different market segments like home based businesses, businesses with employees, professional service firms, restaurants and more. The key is to have a specific mini plan for each segment or niche where you are developing business. Like your company operating plan the min-plan has specific performance targets.

This outline is very similar to the detailed material presented in my book Building Business Profits Fast The difference now is the additional information on defining conditions of the business and positions and apply the right formula for the condition. Since many reading this may not understand completely the condition part of this outline I recommend defining your company and mini plan targets with a huge emphasis on programs to nurture existing customers and massively expand through effective marketing and PR for new customers or deals.

Step 2

Program your annual company and mini plan into monthly and weekly plans. For our tech services client we have daily income targets. We are moving in that direction with our retail products store client and professional services client.

Step 3 Define Daily Targets for Each Task

Define the daily tasks that must be done to achieve the weekly and monthly targets. For example a number of daily tasks for every client are in the category of marketing. Real estate investors are calling realtors and other people connected with properties. A professional services person is calling prospective clients or people who may be connected to prospective clients.

Normally email marketing and social media marketing is part of the tasks that are performed. The key is a clear definition of the number of calls, the number of emails, the number of postings to groups on Facebook or LinkedIn as an example and the number is targeted by day. We have an excel spreadsheet set up for this that we call Target and Statistics.

Once set up for the week, there is one more action that is the key to achieving the targeted tasks and that action is scheduling the time on the calendar for getting the tasks done. This one action usually improves productivity by 50% or more.

Christmas 2013

Christmas Christmas 2013During  this particularly special and holy week, I express heartfelt gratitude for all including those whose views are completely opposite of mine. Those opposite me challenge my thinking and I like that.

I am especially grateful for those family and friends close to me. We may not be around the corner but you are right here with me and I love you.

As we move into Christmas Eve and Christmas my intention for all is to focus on all your dreams coming true because they can. Let go of all that is in the past except as the past serves as part of your learning. Release the emotion connected to that learning.

Our greatest opportunity is to be as excited about what we view as negative as that which experience as positive. All of it is simply part of this process we label life and it is our choice as to view it.

Edison’s success is based on his incredible curiosity. Be curious and grateful about all in you life.

Phil Robertson, regardless of your views of the recent publicity writes in effect that fame and money come and go while the Laws of the Universe are the Rock.

I love you and Merry Christmas.

Everything I Do – I Do For

This is one of my all time favorite songs. Often I think about this in reference to the number one special person in my life, my daughter. Then I consider:

  • the woman who will capture my heart who I have not met
  • the clients who get all of who I am professionally and I want to give them more

And now what I understand more than ever..everything I do I do for myself first because unless I am on my game for me I cannot possibly help someone else. With the understanding that in order to help more I will continue to grow…I study. I network with successful people and at times like this watch the videos and remind myself being here is not about me.

Much Love
Steve
