IF YOU WANT AN APPLE…
Last week I sat in a business meeting with one of my clients. Our guest was there to make a presentation that could possibly have a very beneficial impact on my client’s business.
After the normal greeting he started his presentation by saying: “If you want an apple, don’t wait for it to fall into your hands, climb the tree and get it.”
This was part of one of the most impactful openings I have ever heard. He went on to say that this opening statement is his business philosophy, and it is the basis for his success. His clients are worldwide and his many high tech business solutions are found in several of the new things we all enjoy and benefit from today.
During his presentation, I realized that he shares a belief that you have read about in our BizQuack blogs: “Think Big then Think Bigger.” This is the basis for the vision statement that is in our education section! (If you haven’t read it and created your new vision statement, do so this week).
Another important thing that he brought with him was a visual presentation of his proposal, an extremely well-crafted video that essentially was a tour of his vision. I must admit that his 20 minute presentation was complete and inspiring and left us with the “tell us more” request that every presentation is striving to achieve.
Technology is changing every day and new, disruptive techniques are available to us to enhance our marketing efforts. (Disruptive, in this context is used to describe something new and different from what is the current acceptable standard.)
A good question to ponder is, “What is your business philosophy”? This question pertains to your personal internal drive. It should encompass everything you do, not just for your business, but for yourself, your family and your community. I am sure that our guest’s business philosophy also pertains to everything else in his life.
This short blog contains a lot of material that requires each of us to rethink our own vision and action. This message is so important that I am challenging each of you to share your thoughts with me by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
