Fresh update on "business owner" discussed on Hammer and Nigel

"Hold us up and keep us up on that line, the best that they can And show their support. I am confident that business owners, residents, police officers and their families never want to see something like this happen again, and I never talked to a business owner who said they boarded up their business because they were afraid of the police. I never said that. They boarded it up because they knew that our officers weren't it wasn't better Officers. We're doing too much. It was that our officers were not being allowed to do enough. And that is why that all occurred. We can never allow this to happen again. It calls for accountability and we we were infirm on this. Where were you and played the tapes?

Protect & Grow The Value Of Your Business

"Thanks so much for joining me again ashley. Yes thank you for having me diane. I am thrilled down. We're going to be talking about protecting growing your business at it as we are recording this we are gonna say smack dab in the middle of pandemic so i am curious how someone can grow the value of their business. Turn well yeah. That's a great question. And it's entirely dependent on a number of factors but the one of the hard parts about cove it is that there are some industries that are thriving and their business there. They had their best year ever in twenty twenty and are on pace to do that again. In twenty twenty one and then there are other businesses who are decimated and. They won't come back from this or you know they'll go out of business or it'll forever change them You know for the negative so It's not the same answer across the board but even if you're businesses struggling. I think that there are things that you can do to focus on what you can control business. You know. we can't control what the death rates are the lockdowns. Our house impacting our business in particular. But there are certainly things that you can control. And so i've been trying to encourage some of my business owner clients who are having a rough year and struggling to focus on those things rather than what they or wishing that it would be different. I liked that. I'm a big believer in control. You can monitor what you can't exactly right. Yeah yeah so. Let's talk about opportunities that exist. What what in your estimation are some of the opportunities that exist right now for business. Well if you are if you have good stable cash flow and you are financially in a you know well positioned financially then. There are a lot of no matter what industry you're in there's going to be other competitors that are not in that position so there are definitely opportunities for maybe strategic buying inventory If you have a competitor that has had to lay off people. I'm thinking particularly in those industries. That are decimated when we entered the pandemic. I was doing some hiring for true north and it was so difficult to find good qualified people because the unemployment rate was so low like everybody who i wanted to hire was employed and so a lot of industries now. Now that's not the case so you know if you're Just use more extreme examples of the hardest hit industries. Like if you're a travel business or a hotel or restaurant who is going to survive. There's a tremendous amount of opportunity out there Even when you just got hiring and bringing on those people who have been let go from other competitors or other businesses so there are lots of opportunities depending on what your financial position is where your cash flow is right now and and in. What direction do you want to go do you. Do you want to grow because if you want to grow and you wanna come out of this pandemic stronger than you are when you when we entered it and position yourself well for future growth. Now is a great time to buy Businesses that are struggling by inventory at know fire sale prices and pick up employees from other struggling businesses so there are opportunities that exist out there not for everyone unfortunately but for the businesses who are in a stable financial position And have the ability to kind of their eyes and see okay. What do i want to do differently in my business in order to facilitate growth coming out the other side of this pandemic because we are getting much much closer twenty twenty one i think is gonna look very different than twenty twenty.

Shopify is taking on e-commerce giants

"We've been talking again. About small businesses rushing to get on line during this pandemic and suddenly all kinds of companies want to help with that from amazon to facebook to oetzi to into it and shop by the ottawa based company that helps merchants create websites enable payments and ship their goods to customers shop. If i had unprecedented growth last year it revamped its shop app. Which tracks shipments enables payments to include local shopping collections. And it's got with so called marketplace's no relation facebook and instagram walmart and google to let merchants on its platform also sell on those platforms harley. Finkelstein is the president of shopping by. He told me a big draw for small business owners. Is that shop by. Lets them own their own customers. Their data belong to them. They control the personal information their customers and unlike a marketplace we do not force merchants to give us any independent rights to use their data. The only thing that we are allowed to do is to provide them with better insights better information of which they can make better decisions based on their data so for example. If we see that you were getting a spike in traffic coming from pinterest for example we may encourage you in the admin to act with pinterest channel and try to see if you can actually find more customers there and is it only their data or do give them insights that are based on similar retailers or anything like that or you aggregating at all not really no. i mean. We'll we'll give them very broad industry macro trends and so we really don't aggregate data in that way simply because each those businesses are really independent. And then i wanna ask you about your kind of frienemie placements which is in some ways. Shop of is positioned itself as david up against goliath. But like you said you're working with some of these glass facebook and instagram. What is the risk and being kind of both allies and competitors with some of the biggest names in commerce is so i don't think we actually compete necessarily with the marketplaces. I think our merchants do but we also have to ensure that we are future proofed against what may be the future retail trends and in terms of that competition. I guess technology. You certainly do feel a little bit of you. Know co optician I suppose where there should be cooperation and some competition but the positioning of shop. If i being at the center of commerce and not being a marketplace not being a discovery tool gives us an opportunity to really play with all these different surfaces wherever consumer might be found but there are elements of your business that compete with elements of some other businesses right like facebook pay versus shop. Pay or even the shop app which seemed like it might be headed in the direction of a marketplace versus facebook shops. There's no intention of turning something like shop which is really more of shopping. Assistant app really. The idea of the shop app has to be a consumer shopping assistant. So that if you're buying off five different sites plus marketplace the shop out can tell you where all of your packages are they can provide you with. Incredible realtime order tracking. It can help you shop pay which are accelerated check which is now process like over one hundred thirty seven million orders But the idea was shop is really a way for our merchants shop fai to have a deeper relationship with existing consumers so we all know that the cost of customer acquisition. His is certainly going up in some categories. And we're not facebook and we're not google we're not necessarily the discovery platforms social media platforms but one thing we can do is to increase. Ltv lifetime value of the relationship between a consumer and a brand net. Release the the the purpose and the objective around shop. There there is no. There is no plan to create a marketplace there. You'd also mentioned shop pay and facebook. Look i think social media. I think you'd probably agree that social media in places like instagram are the town squares of the current digital world and if that is the case and consumers are using social media for more than just connection there. They're using it also for things like commerce. Then it's really important that any merchant of ours that wants to sell in those platforms is able to use the best tools cutting edge technology and and shop as one of those

The Power of the Pivot And Knowing where your transferable skills are needed

"You know. People have had a very very very difficult time by the tens of millions with periods of unemployment that had been for some people. fortunately short for others brutally. Long six months or longer in this. I'd i'd i'd corona virus circumstance and the reality is the power the pivot when mean when i talk about. That is something. I talked about back in. Two thousand eight through twelve with the pivot was a lot harder than because we were in a cyclical economic downturn. Do the banking scandals and the result of that era was that it felt like for a significant period of time. There was nowhere really easy to turn today. Though is very very very different. Where even within industries there are people have been thriving. Well have struggled either as business owners or as workers and so if you think about how concentrated. The hardship has been during this pandemic related recession. Where certain things have been just job. Categories brutalized and others. People are doing great but even within the categories where things have been so tough thing about restaurants. How many restaurants have failed. How many restaurant tours. Who worked so hard to build up their dreams and they got crushed by corona virus and then at the same time i saw a story in the new york times how pizza anybody who sold pizza had the best business year in their history over the last year. Pizza tends to be unless you go to some fancy dancy pizza place. Pizza tends to be cheap. It's a lot of people and it was perfect and made to order for delivery. I read a story about a fancy french restaurant. I don't remember where. I read this both fancy french restaurant where they knew they were going down. They were done and then one of them said you know what all these pizza places are doing so great. Why don't we come up with french. Themed pizza and they found a brick oven pizza oven and they started making these french theme pizzas and they deliver them and they've survived. They're not thriving but they've survived to live another day. That is the power of the. Have i read yet. Another story about how restaurant tours that have survived this year or going out now and getting locations for pennies on the dollar where other restaurants have shuttered and as we have more more shots and people's arms you know eating out. It's going to be something people are going to want to gravitate back to who missed. We're social animals. Most of us. We missed that. We've missed that joy kris. Daddy say joy. Vive how do you say that. I do believe schwab to be thank you. We have missed that. I can't pronounce english no way i'm pronouncing something in a foreign language so there are people that are preparing to have locations at much lower overhead in many cases with abandon very valuable kitchen equipment chairs. Everything they need to re-open theme restaurant bat again is the power. The pivot in jobs. I talked about this recently. How many different job categories people were begging for workers and pay his going up while the job category. You may be an working in a hotel Working in most restaurants working in any kind of tourism thing Dad flat on your back concert business. Anything like that you know. I read recently.

Who Wins Or Loses If There's An Increase In The Federal Minimum Wage?

"The covid relief bill moving through congress includes a higher minimum wage for someone like lisa harris. Who works grocery store outside richmond. Virginia that make a big difference able to afford the things that i need to get by day to day without having to ask one ability to feel that i am a contributing member to byatti. I mean they say thank you and that were essential. That were heroes. But we can't feed our families off of being heroes scaling up from seven. Twenty five an hour to fifteen dollars. An hour is still running into resistance though and testing democratic unity in congress. David wessel is following. The debate is of the hutchins center at the brookings institution. David good morning. Good morning steve. So there's always case made against raising the minimum wage. We're told that if you raise the minimum wage employers are just going to hire fewer people. What's the evidence here. Well textbook economic says if you raise the price of something there's going to be less demand for it. In this case less demand from employers for low wage essential workers now the question is how many winners and how many losers one influential estimate comes from the congressional budget office. They estimate that by twenty twenty five which is when the wages supposed to get to fifteen dollars. It would mean twenty. Seven million people would be getting a raise. Nine hundred thousand fewer people would be in poverty but one point four million fewer people would be working or not having got hired on the other hand economist. Aaron debate at the university of massachusetts at amherst has been looking at what happens when states raise minimum wages and he argues that the latest evidence suggests that. Cbo is overestimating the ill effects of raising the wage. A fifteen bucks okay. So a lot of people benefit. Some people may be hurt. But there's an argument over how many people are actually hurt. That's the point of view of the employees. What about the employer. business owners objected. Here well it would raise their payroll costs for sure now. Some employers would may discover that they have better workers or less turnover so it might not hurt them that much some would suck it up in the form of lower profits somewhat. Pass it onto their consumers in the form of higher prices and some would get by with fewer workers are cut the hours of their workers they would clearly be very painful for some businesses and particularly for some businesses like those in the fast food industry that already been hit hard by the covid pandemic but really interesting new academic paper that looked at ten thousand mcdonald's outlets many of them in states or cities that have raised. The minimum wage found that nearly all of them raise prices to cover the extra costs and interestingly it found that despite higher labor costs they didn't more of them didn't install high-tech touch screen ordering that potentially saves labor which suggests that consumers would pay but workers would benefit as well. David you've referred a couple of times here to the fact that some states have already raised the minimum wage. Well above what the federal minimum is. When you look at this debate does it. Matter what part of the country we're looking at it matters a lot. Twenty nine states and the district of columbia have set their minimum wages above the federal seven. Twenty five and hour minimum and so have several cities raising the minimum wage to fifteen dollars. An hour across the country would have a huge impact on some states in the south that are paying seven two thousand five hundred minimum wage or state like west virginia where the minimum wage is now. Eight dollars and seventy five cents an hour. That's of course politically important. Because democrat senator joe manchin has indicated. He's against a fifteen hour wage and his opposition could be fatal to the proposal but a fifteen dollars. Minimum wage would have much less impact in states. Like california where it's already set to go to fifteen dollars. It's thirteen dollars now. And in florida voters in november approved a referendum that takes their minimum wage to fifteen bucks over the next few years no matter what congress does anything special about going up to exactly fifteen an hour. Not really it's politically important. The fact is that the minimum wage has been stuck at seven twenty five since two thousand nine. It would be close to nine dollars. An hour fifty kept up with inflation since

How the pandemic is impacting Bay Area small businesses

"This episode is part of our series exploring covid nineteen impact on nonprofits and small businesses in the san francisco bay area back in april of twenty twenty when we decided to create this ongoing series on covid nineteen impact i or nonprofits and then on small businesses in the san francisco bay area. We like you had no idea how long the pandemic would go on. And what the health and economic impact would be in our community going into twenty twenty one. The pandemic is now killing more people shutting down more nonprofits and small businesses on with wiping out the livelihoods of families neighborhoods and communities. We will continue to shine a spotlight on the nonprofits and small businesses that make up the fabric of our community along with the founders and staff who are struggling to deal with the impact of the covid nineteen pandemic on their operations services is an ability until we can all get to the other side of the pandemic along the way we will also share with you all the amazing solutions that are nonprofits. Small businesses foundations and government leaders are working on to help us all get to the other side of the pandemic and come together to rebuild our communities with more economic social and environmental equality. What is very clear is that business owners are challenged right now in a way they never have been you know open close and indoors outdoors. You know p p what is it. What do i do with it. Who do i give it to so many challenges right now and our goal is to really help is many of these small businesses weather this storm so to speak as best we can and for that reason i like to encourage businesses to reach out to us especially work with a business advisor. This is the district director of the small business. Administration's san francisco district office julie. Cows over these ten plus months we have been sharing the voices of small businesses and covert nineteen s- devastating impact on their survival with the latest round of federal funds now being deployed we wondered host julie to help guide our listeners through the funding opportunities available to both nonprofits in small businesses. I'm joined remotely via zoom by julie. Cows the district director of the small business. Administration's san francisco district office. Thank you for being here. Julie thank you for the invitation. The sba is one of those government departments that for a lot of people. See it as a black box where it's going to require all these forms all this information i don't have so i think it would really be helpful if you could provide a background on the sba here in san francisco. That's the district to manage and how you work with small businesses and really now nonprofits. Absolutely i do think. There's a lot of preconceived notions about who. Spa is what they do and who we help. But we are a federal agency where an independent agency and our mission is to help. Businesses start and grow and continue to prosper. And we do that. Offering a variety of programs and services can kinda break those into four buckets as an easy way to talk about it. A so there's the access to capital bucket. Which may be where most known for but we actually have programs that go from microfinancing loans of fifty thousand dollars or less all the way on up through venture capital and then our bread and butter program kind of is our loan guarantee program which is loans through commercial lenders up to five million but we also have government contracting assistance so we help with federal certifications. We actually work behind the scenes with other agencies trying to get them to utilize small businesses as their contractors so we do a lot to help small businesses kind of break into federal contracting and be successful the third bucket we have is business advising free business counseling and low no cost training and honestly. I think this is probably the most invaluable service. Sba offers so through our network of grants resource providers. You may have heard small business development center score women business centres anna veteran business outreach center we provide free business advising and especially in this challenging times right now. This is an invaluable resource for businesses. You will never be charged for the advising services and you can talk about any issue that you have that's pressing or if you wanna strategize with somebody look at them as a visor to help you think about your future and how you weather the rest of this cova pandemic and then the fourth bucket which is kind of been a theme for the last year is our disaster assistance program. We typically will go in on declared disasters in provide financial support loans support to cover uninsured losses and to help with economic injury for small businesses and nonprofits that has now become kind of the focal point of the assistance. The covid recovery assistance for small businesses in nonprofits so as a district office. We're here to kind of administer. Some of these programs do some oversight but really warrant at grassroots level of sba engage with the community engage with our small businesses. And make sure that they are tapped into the resources that can benefit their business

No, no, I do not know all he knows they've been there for a while, and they're very popular and there Very good people up there. I've been up there a few times and they're very, very nice people. But why would a woman or a man or anybody get pleasure since and shutting a guy down on Super Bowl Sunday at the you know, after 11 months of trying to scramble just to stay alive. Don't know. And I don't know what her motive was. I can only tell you that this is part and parcel to a lot of the complaints. I'm getting from business owners and restaurant owners about inspectors coming in having a bit of a god complex and coming in. Knowing they have the total power on then some of these restaurants that have been just like repeated targets of the health department where it's like I remember when Barbara for rare County Health Department director said, You know when I say Why is this happening that hammer because, well, we have 33,000 licensed restaurants in L. A county. And she says, You know, it's not. It's not easy to get to all of them like, well, no, because they're fixated on 20 of them, and they keep going back to these 20 over and over and over and over and over. And you know, and I think what happens is that you've got a lot of pushback from restaurant owners because they're like, you know, we've had it and you know, it's what happened with Tin Horn flats in here in Burbank. The place up in Agoura Hills. I think, um I can't remember the name of that place up there. But He was defiant of that also, and and I think that's what was going on with the county. The county is like, you know, they're not gonna back down. They're gonna put all their time. Money and resource is into teaching these people a lesson.

Let me let me explain what i mean by that a little bit. So you know how when you're in a corn maze and you're not sure if you should go left or right but when you step on a ladder. Suddenly the maze is no longer a mystery. Well that's what my guest at jared. Haning does for business owners by teaching them how to think at a higher level they are able to see the whole picture and suddenly obstacles that were blocking the growth no longer exist and everything he teaches comes onto this one thing a breakthrough in your business. Will i happen as a breakthrough in your thinking. Which i've loved so welcome jared to live. Love engage thanks for having me. I appreciate Having you here and let me just tell you a little bit more about This gentleman because He is an award winning speaker. And i can attest to this. Because i watched one of his fedex. Talks was very impressed with it. It's related to mindset performance. But he's also been on. Abc's nightline spoke on stage all across the country. He's got clients around the world. He's also been chosen by ted global as a featured speaker of the week and what makes him unique that he specializes in a nobel nominated process. That teaches you how to get a higher level and allows you to access different parts of your brain on demand. And as a result his most of his clients gone to double their income by purposely. Working half as many hours. And who doesn't wanna do that. You know offense not enough. He's also a classically trained musician Which is also equipped him with a unique set of tools for leveling up your leadership and when he's not doing that well except for during corona virus days. I guess you'd normally find him. Or maybe he has been still flying skydiving or mountain bike riding. And i love this. This is really fun. is that his. He says his most prized accomplishment was winning. The world tickle championship in the five-year-old category. So you have to explain that. actually. I real quick. Come on Okay told that is a fictitious title coming up and gave to myself. Well i like it. I only have one kid. And he's no longer five now ten so so so basically the the championship was at home. Is that you will vary call many years ago. Why like that i. I think that's awesome. So let's let's talk a little bit now about this You know the having a breakthrough in your business in part of this one of the things that you claim is that by normally. We are so focused on getting things done that that actually kills your productivity and and checking things off the to do list which i must confess. I do like doing that from time to time Is that it actually lowers your income. So why do you say that. So productivity is not about getting things done it's actually about causing things to be done When you check something off your to do list you don't solve the problem of why it had to be done to start with. And if you're the one doing the work well you're going to be the one doing the work again tomorrow And that is a bad strategy and we just can't solve with stubbornness even epic. Olympic levels of stubbornness cannot fix that bad strategy. So one of the reasons that trying harder Doesn't move the ball forward It doesn't work. It actually just masks. The problem is because trying harder working harder working smarter even this. These are just themes on a variation more of the same trying to work. Smarter is just coming up with more of the kinds of ideas that already make sense and those are the kinds of ideas that have you stuck to start with a working harder. Just as doing more of the activities that already makes sense to do and like i mentioned earlier When you check something off your list if it doesn't address what caused the demand to start with. You didn't fix the problem and no matter what you're doing in that block of time. No matter how good you are at it. There's twenty seven other things that aren't getting done and so this is just really sophisticated. Spinning your wheels

"business owner" Discussed on Being Boss: Mindset, Habits, Tactics, and Lifestyle for Creative Entrepreneurs

"From now the easier. It's going to be for you to move forward with your ideas. Release the overwhelm and really put things in place that build a solid foundation for your business so that episodes coming up soon. It was amazing to record. I cannot wait for you to see it. And that's a little idea of how it is that i implement that literally in my business for myself. Which sort of helps you. Hopefully get an idea of long-term priorities now. I want to talk a little bit about short-term priorities and here's where i'm pulling and community bosses i love what laura defranco's says who is a member of the being bossed community and as a designer founder of free period press. She says when. I look at my to do this at the beginning of the week. I asked myself which of these tasks are most important to getting me to my business goals. It's amazing. how many tasks sneak onto my list. That are distractions from my bicker. Goals asking this question helps me to zero in on. What's most important and downgrade the non essentials. I obviously love that on the fly. Recognition of priorities is a must have skill for a business owner or an entrepreneur. Because things pop into your to do list on a constant basis and if we're not being constantly diligent to make sure your to do list reflects your priorities then you will waste a lot of time. another useful. tactic comes from community member. Emma peacock who's a digital marketing strategist and is the owner of honeypot digital. Here's how she manages priorities. I find. I am most productive a month of twos when each day. I write down my top three things and do those first every day. If i don't get any more done than at least that is all wrapped up. And i m moving in the right direction. Every work day genius if the first three things you do each day are your top priorities than even if you get nothing else done. You're moving forward one of my favorite resources for identifying business priorities. So some of those. Like thirty thousand foot really overarching. Like here's the big picture of what you need to be focusing on in your business next. Is mike mccauley his book fix this next. We had mike on the podcast. Few years ago talking about his book profit. I which is a boss staple and mike actually keynote at our conferences past spring on his book clockwork. I can't recommend those books highly off and his latest book. Fix this next is another must read currently reading it in the being boss community for our book club. Pick of the month. And i'm already seeing bosses gained some real clarity on what they need to be prioritizing in their business so priorities you have to know what yours are and you have to prioritize them. Think of it as one step down from non-negotiables but one step up from just your average to do list and cultivate your ability to quickly and decisively decide what takes priority it will make your daily energy input into your business immensely immensely. More impactful okay. Let's get beyond the mindsets. Which again i do eighteen episodes on an end to the real practical stuff. I wanna talk you through. Basically what a week looks like how. I manage my time with a basis of those mindsets that i talked about where i have my not negotiable and plays i'm focusing on my priorities and i know the worth of my time so every sunday usually in the late afternoon. I sit down with my laptop. My notebook independent and i plan out my week. I do this on sundays. Because usually i after noon on sundays attorney phillip itchy all anc unusually. Because just. because. I leave on friday. Evening does not mean that my brain turns off I'm an entrepreneur. So it doesn't just do that. I m not working on the weekends But usually things pop into my head. Like oh i need to remember to email that person or oh i gotta remember to tell you know a team member this thing or oh. I forgot to do this last week. Let's make sure that's on my to do list. And sometimes i will like plot a piece of paper and jot them down or i'm just collecting them in my mind usually by mandate sunday. I'm itching to like get them out of my head so that i can really sort of let go the rest of my sunday. So all those little details that have cropped by mind I need to get them out onto paper so that i can enjoy the rest of my weekend the rest of my sunday evening without feeling that. Anc feeling so. If i sit down and put them in their place on sunday and lets me enjoy the rest of my sunday and i can move into my monday morning knowing exactly what i need to do without doing this monday morning. I could feel quite overwhelmed quite Because i don't know what. I'm doing that week but waking up on monday morning after i've done this i know exactly what my path forward is for the week so i do this on sunday afternoons and remember time management is about being in control of your time and sunday evening when there's nothing else going on and with a lead time that will have me walking into my workweek. Well prepared is when and how i feel most in control of my time then i can always just finish off the hours of my weekend and ease into the week that much more easily. And i'm not the only one. I'm not the only boss who plans. They're weeks on sundays. Tasha harrison who is an author and editor member of the community who you also heard from in episode two forty two also plans her week on sunday as well so i sit down on sunday with my laptop notebook and a pin and i write out my to do list starting with the things that have come up. For me that are jumbling. Bouncing around in my noggin. Over the past few days. And then i opened my project management software which asana they are not a sponsor but i wouldn't hate it if they were and i copy down any tasks from my to do list and asana into my notebook and do this across both of my businesses so we have an asana for being boston. We have an asana for almac supply co as well and this does the job for me of consolidating my to do list into one place but it also gives me the opportunity to prioritize. I also at this time. Open up my email and without replying to a single thing. I add any email actions or replies. That i need to do that list as well which gives me what is really a master. Do list for the week now. Right away i get a good look at the weight of my responsibilities for the week if my list is less than half the page long. I'm doing good. It was longer than half the page long. I know i'm going to need some help. At which point. I will on the right side of my papers star immediately delegating out to members of my team things that i need to get off my plate or i'll draw little arrow next to them so that I know that i'm moving it to the following week. Then i opened up my calendar. My like ike. How calendar i'm anne eichel user. Anyone cares and i start scheduling it all out and by the time i'm done. I know exactly what my workweek will look like. So every task that i've written down on my to do list goes into a time slot on my calendar and sometimes i'll i'll bulk. Alcs and things app is that al-batsh when we go al batsh some things up where let's say i have you know eight email tasks or like four email tasks and whether that's replying to emails or just starting an email thread or taken an action in an email. Whatever it may be. I will badge those together into maybe like thirty minute chunk so five to use five task. Go into one little bat chassis on my calendar but also on my calendar. I'm literally writing. Emailed this person. This person this person this person this person so that each of those tasks are being clearly represented on my calendar. All of this takes less than an hour and it is the most important of my leak and with that proactive plan for my week. Laid out in front of me. That's directly related to what i need to get complete. Finish off my sunday with a sense of ease and start my monday knowing exactly what needs to.

There's a little bit less than go. I'm not very good at handy shit so if you know me like one of the things. I'm really good at you. Guys is like if you're looking to grow a business and you wanna learn how to sign clients you want to learn how to land clients. You need to learn how to use your tiktok instagram. I'm your dude right. I am not the dude that you call. If you need your house fixed or shirt so i do google how to set up these sound roofing tiles in my room and said that you need to use piece of spray and cardboard. I did that. I used adhesive spray to the soundproofing towels and then cardboard. And then i stuck it up on the wall and i came into my room this morning and there was like seven of the sound roofing tiles fell off my wall so basically what i'm saying is don't call me to fix your house because i'll just break it more so i need to spend my weekend cleaning up my soundproofing ships. 'cause that is i'm not very good at that okay. So let's get into the episode. I want to talk to you guys about my number one struggle right now as a business owner and i want to share this with you guys. Because i think that there's a lot of my coaches they'll be able to relate to this and in order to clearly explain this idea. I wanna talk about my workout routine so for me right now. I'm only working four days a week. I'm doing legs twice a week and then to do chest shoulders and back once a week and then i do shoulders arms once a week so i'm trying to get bigger show so first week and trying to get bigger legs and then i take three red states three full days so i usually go four days on and then i'll take three days off to really let my body fully recover gromyko schedule. Works really well because it allows me to go super super hard when i'm at the gym and then when i'm off i actually get to fully relax and fully chill which gives my body the recovery that it needs to come back into next week stronger and better than ever so. That's my workout schedule right. And you know. I obviously loved jimmy guys like i love exercise and so in reality. I could be in the gym seven days week but the truth is like if i was in the gym seven days a week probably two or three. The workouts wouldn't really be good anyways. Because i'd be low on energy i'd be exhausted i'd be like i would just like be overtired and i wouldn't recover properly..

Big picture know take take a few steps back and really think about what you want And to me this is the the really the most vital step and it takes time matter of fact. Most of the lot of the time we spend in this six dep planning process is to help the business owners understand. What their goals are. It's important yeah. And i think that's the perfect for step goal setting as as a coach. I believe that firmly. So i'm right there with you. What would the second step be. The second step is to really measure the financial and mental readiness of our our client of the business owner and Our experiences that most business owners just aren't ready to exit. You know we talk about this of a final decision. But it's not there really just not ready and reason i say that is we utilize a tool called the business exit readiness index or We caught the berry surprise. And there's actually a link to this survey on my website and if you email me i can send you an email with a link to that That survey in overtime over the years that people have business owner has been taking. This survey almost eighty percent of the small business owners that take. It aren't ready from a financial or emotional perspective. And that really tells us a lot in this way what we're trying to determine his the business owners perception of their financial readiness and what that means is can they Without a salary from the business does the business owner have enough income producing assets to comfortably support their personal family financial objectives and if they do have enough assets then maybe there got a high level of financial readiness but if they don't they've got a low level and that tells us really important information so the question around financial ready readiness is so important because it helps us it helps business owner understand if they can actually afford the exit option..

"I'm sure you know this but I think we can all do with little reminders sometimes. People have been driven to get good at something and put themselves or their wares for higher or for cell. For literally thousands of years. Business did not start when the Internet was created or when facebook launched. So, when I tell you that a good instagram strategy or a healthy email list is not what makes good business I don't want you to be shocked. Because in the long history of business is not tactics or just the right social media strategy that makes a great business. It's a great business owner. And a great business owner is a person who knows their skill who knows their customer and who has the tenacity and care to navigate the ever changing environment of business ownership in order to offer up their special something to those who need it. A successful business is such because it is run by an owner who has called evaded a deep sense of confidence and trust their inner wisdom enough to follow that little whisper of. Yes. When they hear of an opportunity that feels aligned or you when they hear of one that doesn't. To hear it another way it's not the tactic of figuring out the algorithm or jumping on a new or different strategy itself. That is special. It is the business owner who has the spark of inspiration to try the tactic or strategy in the first place. Making the business owners most powerful tool, their own intuition. Here at being boss, we've always been about cultivating confidence in your skills as a business owner than showing you how we think you should do something.

Some minority business owners are really really suffering from both the riots and covert nineteen pandemic so Steve Let's go to the phones talk to the People Ida everybody You know doing this time that we're all coping with on so many different ways. We decided to take some calls and just hear from some of our listeners. We don't have a all. We don't have a topic. Topic is just what's going on in his world to down me. It's all the same thing you know a moment ago. It was covert nineteen, which was the conversation and now I think we've gotten onto something that's. Equally as important in starting to have a more resounding effect or more people than I even thought it would, which is could be a good thing for the cause, so we're going to go to some of our listeners on the phone Let's go to our first. Call is Steve Harvey. Who is this? Is My spine. I'm calling from Atlanta Georgia Hi Myra. Hey, listen. You're a business owner here. How how is this affecting you? And what would you like to say I? Would they Jesus be Bob wire fence right now because this is a lot. I have been through an economic downturn. I've been through the recession. I've been through two three Republican administrations as business owner and I can tell you I've never seen anything like this. This is crippling now. I know for a lot of businesses. Before we got the people out in the streets, pandemic has a close so many businesses. How is Your Business closed I? Don't you don't? Don't have to give the name of what what type of business do you have and is it closed? And what do you foresee happening? Wish? She thought well I can tell you. This is my tenth year in business in this brand. I've owned Salon for twenty years. Over Twenty Years Since Nineteen Ninety, nine I'm moved to Atlanta. Nights and ninety eight and when I pull you. and. We felt in have always felt like. The streets were paved with gold. This is not a political city. This is not a city like New York Chicago, Detroit L. A. The cost of living with debt for entrepreneurs. So if you could see in, believe it, you can have it that reality television Atlanta, because I've been on reality TV and I know what that looks like, but this is real business people who if you set your mind to something and you had a drink could accomplish it, and it was not stagnant based on. On politics and the cost of living allowed it to be that, but this pandemic was nothing. Anybody could have prepared for in any way shape or form this the not like the housing crisis. It's not like the great recession where you could blame people who have forecast or over leveraged. This was something that was beyond our control and I'm in the beauty business where we can't. We can't say six feet away. You have to touch people and my salons and businesses have been closed since March twenty third. We opened three weeks ago. And to fifteen percent of the revenue that we normally do during this time of the year, which is our busiest time of the year, which is prom season, which is tax season, which is Mother's Day? Every major holiday before June is off big time of the season and our business was at zero. And it was if I hadn't been the type of business that I am. My employees wouldn't have I. See a dime because my employees are actual employees. They're not subcontractors their employees, so if it weren't for the federal government stepping in and giving the extra six hundred dollars on top of the basic unemployment that they get, they would have been homeless, and this is disheartening. It's sad. It's troubling and all of this. It's too much. Too much while. I understand that and now you know we we. We put in for you I mean we're praying for everybody to get through. This is still going to be some challenges even with the stimulus packages, and and even when it gets back to a sense of normality, still gonNa be a bit it just is. It's going to be a bit. It's GonNa. Take a while to get back to normal and I don't know what the norm is. GonNa look like either I don't know if it's going to be. Anything like it before I can play that. There would be what we had before. And you know what I'm okay. I mean things change. You know life has changed. Maybe this will cause some other things to be looked at everything so hanging there.

Michael Dell Bill Gates. Yeah exactly I think in some peoples cases like myself. It's it's forced onto them so I actually ended up getting laid off at the big box gym and Had become a small business owner but then just the dream of. Hey now my future is really in my control. And I'm very confident myself and I'm GonNa make the same big of course that's the dream like. Okay now I work for myself. I can work anytime I want to with anybody that I want to. It's going to be fantastic. I control over my own life but it doesn't quite turn out that way does it. Yeah no not not quite You find yourself working more hours Less less pay more expenses. And you're not like really doing the fun stuff anymore. You're not doing the stuff that you were doing beforehand. Which my case was actually doing the training with with the people who is more about the marketing bringing New People on organizing all of that. And I think that's the most difficult part of having your own business because most of us get started to solve a problem. Help a customer but we don't realize there's all this other stuff right around running a business as you said marketing keeping track of. Who's paid who hasn't paid setting appointments all the things that kind of get in the way of actually doing the work yeah. It was very humbling. I was like Oh yeah I can. I can definitely track money on my own I can. I can organize my calendar on my own. I can keep track of all my clients Piece of paper or my head and then it actually start scaling and I'm going. Whoa spending twelve hours a day trying to manage the business. And then you know it felt like another twelve hours doing the actual training and that's a that's a real big issue. You said when you scale tell us about your journey and how it all worked out so when I was in the big box gym I had like a or nine clients which was a good load for me I was also doing a full time college at the time too and then a little thing called college right. Exactly just mixed in there Anyone I struck out on my own I actually took a year off college and decided to Kinda grow. That business I.

"business owner" Discussed on The EntreLeadership Podcast

"Almost twenty years and served on our operating board. Jax thank you for being here with us today. Thank you good to have you jack. You and I Week ago were on spring break and we came home Monday morning and went right into what we've kind of called a war room. We took our normal operating board meeting and our weekly rhythm and disrupted that and said. Let's just jump in with all of our leaders Dave and start figuring out how we're going to respond to everything that's going on out there and so I want our listeners and viewers to remember that we also operating a business just like you guys and we're trying to figure out how to respond just like you guys. Are we all have new problems? Now that we're working to solve together so Jack Monday morning we come in. There's a little bit of energy in the air. What was going through your mind when we came back from spring break and realize like we've got a whole new situation on our hands it was so surreal because we left both of us left and things were sort of cautious like we were waiting to see how things might go and while we were gone. All of a sudden are building is emptied out everybody's working remotely which we had never done before We're trying to make sure things are gonNA work. We're trying to figure out. How do we do business while people are gone? How do we lead remotely which we had never done and we come back in and everything is different and all the plans that we had laid out where planners here all of those plans are put on hold while we stop and go? What's really important right now. So as a business leader know certainly we're trying to lead with confidence and also it's going through our head. What is worst case scenario? How do even plan for worst case scenario when we don't really have a precedent for something like this and of course we don't panic and go to worse worse worst case scenario and we don't want to freak out our team but we also have to kind of be realistic and you know how. How have you seen us? appropriately kind of set the the level and say this is potentially how bad it can get and then back out of a plan from that point. One of my favorite quotes. I've heard during this time. It's facts are our friends and what I've learned is with me and with other seasoned leaders is when you come in your emotions will tell you that your worst case scenario is far worse normally than what your actual worst case scenario is likely to be and so when we start laying down. What do the fax tell us. What do the numbers of our business tell us if our sales dropped by this percent or this percent or this percent and what I've found is in my own leadership time if I will look at on paper what the worst case scenario the most likely worst case scenario is an deal with that and get peace with that that if everything that could go wrong goes wrong? That's our worst case scenario and just take a moment as a leader and just breathe and go. I hope that doesn't happen. But that is my worst case scenario now I can set it off to the side and go. Let's get to work. Let's get to work making sure that doesn't happen. But I've Kinda Gotten Outta my head so that that emotion doesn't just hover over meal like cloud while we're trying to work our way through this when you're putting those ideas on paper and trying to figure out what numbers to us. You know. There was a scientist who said every model is wrong but some of them are useful. Yeah you know so. I think we can't go to like trying to perfect and have a crystal ball. But there's there's something about plugging scenarios. How do you kind of get close enough and move forward with that plan versus like you know really trying to get down to the exact percent? I mean. We can't perfectly tell so. How do you balance that tension? Well here's what we did here. We came up with phases. Hey Phase one is our revenues dropped by a few percentage points or less and And it feels like this is a a a difficult time in our business but not catastrophic. And here's what that looks like. And here's what we're going to do about it. Face to is worse. Our scenario is our revenues are dropping by more. This is happening. This is happening. Maybe the government doesn't let us come back to work as quickly as we thought. And what does that look like? All the way to a third phase. Which is wow. Things are far worse. They're closer to that worst case scenario and that we've planned forum but when we got him on paper and they will change they have to be fluid. They're going to change sometimes. Daily definitely weekly but as things are changing. We're able to sort of line up. This is what the facts are telling us today. These are scenarios in phases that we laid out that helps us keep a level head while we try to work our way through this. I've talked to a lot of business owners in the last few days and there's two different conversations around Worst case scenario and what you communicate with your team Some of my friends in the business owner community. We're telling our team everything and there's some who are saying. Hey my face. Three includes laying people off. I'm not gonNa tell them that because I don't want to panic the team. What's your philosophy on? How much to share. It's a balance for me. And here's what I mean by. That is as the leader. I can handle more fearful emotions. I feel like as a season. The leader then my newest leader on the team or somebody that just moved their family across the country to start with us and so. I want to be completely honest with our team. It doesn't mean I tell them every single thing that could possibly keep them up at night and what I mean by that is I. Want to be real with my leaders. But real with my leaders not sobbing uncontrollably out of fear about how great I am this business. I still am the leader and I'm charged with taking this group of people in leading them through a crisis but if I'll be authentic and sincere and tell them guys I didn't sleep last night either. I'm afraid I'm dealing with some things I've never dealt with before now. Let's roll up our sleeves and see how we're GONNA get through this. 'cause I believe by looking at the facts and the scenarios and the talent around this table. I believe we're GONNA get through this and so it's an opportunity to be sincere not over share but be sincere. Be Honest never mislead in any way and walk people. Sometimes they can only handle little bit of information at a time. Even though you've got a greater picture in your mind a love that that is so true Jack I WanNa talk about how we get our leaders. Our team to help us solve these new problems. I've noticed just among some of our leaders in the last few days that they're still a little bit of hesitation on what is my role now. My role two weeks ago was very clear. We talk about it all the time and now all of this new information is coming down and we're making quick decisions moving really fast and I think a lot of our team wants to get it right. They WANNA help but they also still need us to say. Hey I'm looking at you. Take this ball run with it. It's not normally even your job but I just need. Somebody who know can be the champion of this thing. What's important to bring our team in terms of communication with them. Bring them into the problem so that they have clear lanes to run IT I. I'll say that I've found. That are titles right now. Have less to do with what we're doing day to day than at any other time in twenty years that I've been here the CFO might be helping carry out an initiative. That has nothing to do with accounting. And that's the same way around. Our table is whatever needs to be done. Whoever's got talent the ability and the bandwidth to move that ball forward might be given that ball that opportunity to run with for the next twenty four to forty eight hours while we move the thing forward. Here's another thing I've found is when you give people responsibilities and they share in whether or not we weather the storm or not. It gives us more confidence. It gives us more of a sense of control that we have something to do with the outcome. We feel less like a victim and we feel like we're all working together instead of relying on just the leader or the leader and a few others to get us through this. We're all responsible to do whatever it takes to get through this well. These are great tips. You know we've talked about planning for a worst case scenario. We've talked about the value of getting your plan ahead and onto paper We've talked about appropriately sharing and being pretty transparent with your team Also let them know what the problem is and invite them into that so we can work on it as a team. How do we deal with the fact that we're all running about three times harder than we were just a month ago and we're exhausted? Our teams exhausted. I don't know about you but I mean I'm jumping out of bed first thing in the morning and it's just like this time-warp you know and I look up and all of a sudden it's nine or ten o'clock at night and I'm getting off a call and and I love a part of that because I just feel like our whole team is coming together and over communicating and working to do whatever it takes and I also know and and you do too that. It's not sustainable. So the value of downtime the value of taking a break and figuring out okay. How how am I going to pull back from the chaos for a second? How can we give ourselves permission to still do that? When everything's on fire when there is a fire in the business or just in your life when there's a crisis adrenaline goes way way up and all of a sudden you've got energy that maybe you didn't have before this crisis and you are able to work harder longer hours make decisions faster. And there's a certain amount of of positivity in that and adrenaline energy in that and we teach people to do the same thing when they're getting out of debt. Hey take an extra job. Throw some pizzas. Do whatever it takes but just as we've learned and getting out of debt that you can't do that as a long term plan you can't lead twenty four hours a day for a long period of time without hitting a wall and you may not see the wall coming but your body and your mind have a limit to where that adrenaline is. GonNa run out. And if you don't have a planned break in there to recharge your own batteries personally spiritually physically resting if you're not if you're not taking care of sort of the four walls of who you are as a then you're just going to run out of gas and you're not GonNa do your team too good. You got to plan. Some downtime. To recharge spiritually physically emotionally relational Jack Unit. I've talked about this. One of what I believe is one of the greatest leaders to ever walk. The face of this earth is Jesus Christ and if you read the Bible like I do you'll see times where Jesus was healing people and the multitudes were lined up and then all of a sudden he just went away to be alone and it never says in the scripture when everybody was healed then he took a break I mean. Can you imagine this line of people like a greeting line? And he just has to pick. And Say Hey. I'm sorry I can't get to you and help you right now because I've got to go be alone and pray. Recharge my batteries and so often think you know if Jesus did that None of us are him even as leaders. We WanNA fix every problem out there and unfortunately we're not going to fix every problem. I think is what we're saying Jack. This has been incredible before we jump off. Any final thoughts are words of encouragement for leaders right now in the midst of this chaos. Speak to their heart. My final thoughts are this. If you find yourself out of control. And there's some forced downtime a Lotta Times it's business owners. We are so busy working in the business that we're really not able to stop work on the business and we complain about that all the time. There's not enough time to stop and really think strategically about the next ten years. This is the perfect time for that. This is thinking time. It's also relationship time when this storm passes and it will. Your team will remember the things you said and did during the storm. Use this as a time to encourage to inspire to lift others up when you see them. Getting tired and weak use this a time to build relationships or to mend broken relationships and win this passes. You will be glad you did jack. Thank.

"No you said on our operating board and and Dave is very much in this stage right now where he's thinking about how our business nine hundred people lives is passed him. So what has it been like to get to spend time with a business owner that is in that stage. Well it's really great. You know and I gotta be honest. I was really in mature and and kind of naive in my world view about business when I started here and Davis taught me so much about thinking about this idea of legacy and what. I've learned what I've been inspired by as I've ever as I've said at his feet and I've I've heard more about this idea of second generation and third generation fifth-generation businesses that are thriving. You know it really is sad when somebody works as hard as most business owners work to build something and they're planting in these is fields that at the end of their time that the whole field just dries up. That's really sad. It doesn't have to be that way because they're still employees. They're still customers you. You've done all the hard work to get something off the ground. Nurture it and feed it and it should live beyond you. That's one of the really cool things about businesses. You can create something that for generations to come continues to have some type of life some type of energy some type of blessing people whether it's the the team or the customers hours and of course it's going to evolve and shift and the business model is GonNa look different from generation to generation but you could start something and get it into motion and so I would just challenge you know if you're on the treadmill and you go on sounds great but I'm just trying to pay the bills I get it. It's hard to think about legacy at that stage but ultimately what's life really about out. It's not about us. It's not about just growing our lifestyle and in the bills and and getting to have material success. It's about investing in people and bring in life into to the world in a way that they're really empowers people and builds people and so we get to do that with our team we get to do with our customers and and hopefully we get to do it in a way where they get to continue. Doing that was something we started even. We're not here well there. You have it the treadmill operator. The Pathfinder a trailblazer the peak performer.

What stages our business in and as you start to become more aware aware of kind of where you self identify as a business leader the next question that always comes up for someone that's growth oriented is okay? Well how do I get the next level. How do I get to the next stage? And that's a question we've asked for a long time now and we're starting to get some answers because we've learned from business owners around the country that if you're going to move from one stage of business.

"business owner" Discussed on Budgets and Cents

"Me as the online business owner um but also as the person behind the brand if that makes sense like maybe i should be connecting more with people maybe i should be more authentic and maybe should be in three emails faster and like you know all these things that i guess it's easy to perceive the other people are doing that you're may be not or you're not doing as good um i don't really feel like it so much in my personal life as i like my relationship or you know being away for anything like that on so mostly i guess it relates to like the business aspect probably because it's just so easy to see other people's online you know online brands to and then compare to that now i was actually going to say one of the things i was pulling out as you were talking was everything you're saying was about stock you're seeing online yell saw an money to it does affect my money a lot i feel like i should be further along with money or have more money or save more money or spend less money her whatever and do you feel that way um because like you have goals and you haven't met them yet or do you feel that because then you'll see like someone else online is making twenty thousand among the hrc sucking up i feel like i am making enough in earning enough way should be reaching the certain goals but i still feel like is not happening so it's mostly me wanting to reach these goals um because i mean last year in 2016 i made nearly six figures and i didn't come anywhere close to the the goals that i wanted to accomplish so for me it's i just feel like i'm mismanaging it like i'm not i don't feel like i'm enough you know doing enough for being smart enough to handle it all myself properly.
