If you want to get your point across, you can always burn an effigy of someone you don't like. Gets your message across for sure - may be a little aggressive though. Kind of like in Mexico where they burned effigies of Donald Trump. Maybe they didn't like his idea of setting up a huge wall to keep illegal immigrants out. Maybe it was a joke gone wrong. Maybe it was just a publicity stunt. Hard to say. But, like him or not, Trump knows how to own the media. I ran over just a few of the points why I think he's a political force to be taken seriously and how you can add some of his tricks to your biz promotions: http://bizdevshots.com/podcast-trump-for-president-how-to-dominate-the-competition/ Here's to dominating the competition, Matt Hardy BizDevShots Podcast BossInternetMarketing.com

Over the years of working with small businesses, I've found a number of common issues. One of the biggest complaints I've heard is: "you can't get good people anymore." Maybe you've heard this lament before. Maybe you've said it yourself. And while on the surface it can be true, I'd say 80% of the time it misses the mark. Most often what I've found is that the employees don't have any sort of job description. Without a job description and a list of duties that are needed to be done, neither the owner or employee knows what they are responsible for. And with a competent employee, this often results in an excited boss shifting into "delegation mode" and piling on more and more work. When I questioned one owner about this, she said "didn't think it was a big deal." After I got her to write out all the employee's current job duties and saw the size of the list, she quickly realized why her employee was making mistakes and things...

It doesn't matter what industry you're in. It doesn't matter what the sales climate is. It doesn't matter whether you have an established business or not. The principles are the same. One of my favorite quotes is: "Every business owner deserves the right to learn how to increase sales, multiply their profits and mine every hidden asset and overlooked opportunity in their world." This quote came from Jay Abraham. He's called the $9 Billion Dollar Man, having helped generate an estimated $9 billion in sales increases for different people. And one of the lessons that I learned from him is the idea of looking outside your industry for inspiration. In each industry there are practices and systems that are seen as being normal. But to anyone outside of that industry, those practices could be a complete gamechanger. You can borrow our successful practices here: http://bizdevshots.com/solution/ Here's to ...

How would you like this to happen to you? A few days ago in downtown Turkey in a district popular with tourists, 2 buildings spontaneously collapsed. One minute it was business as normal, the next everything comes crashing down. Luckily, they said nobody was hurt. I'm not sure how that's possible, but that's what they're claiming at the moment. Turkish authorities said that both buildings were closed for construction. It seems to beg the question - doesn't construction usually involve BUILDING or reinforcing things? If they were set for demolition the fact that they came down wouldn't have been a surprise, would it? But it can be like this in business - on the outside everything looks fine. The next - the business is laying dead in a heap of rubble, while everyone else stands around wondering how it happened. The number one reason for business failure? A lack of capital. If your business isn't gro...

I read about a Swedish project that is trying to convert people's under-utilized homes into temporary co-working spaces, available to freelancers for free. So, if you were to do this, you would have people who are unable/unwilling to pay for office space using your home. They could use THEIR OWN home, but they just don't want to. How well do you think you would get along with these people? Do you think they would be incredibly hard-working and focused? Or would they just goof off and distract everyone else as they don't have any overhead or investment to worry about? I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that you should probably check with your wife before you quit your day job to become a freelancer who opens up your home to other freelancers looking for free working spaces. I'm not against charity, but if it's business-related you need to have and follow a plan to profit. Here's the solution: http://bizdevshot...

Having worked in a few different industries, it opens your eyes to certain things. Like how important it is to know what you're doing. Take the machine shop, for example. We had a machinist who didn't use a steady-rest for some 1" diameter solid bar he was turning on a lathe. Problem is, without this rest the long end of the bar that sticks out of the machine will bend and turn into a hockey stick from the speed of the rotation. This creates a helicopter-like blade that spins vertically at about 1500 rpm that will beat anything in it's path into complete submission. Machines. Material carts. Mobile forklifts. People. It's not picky. It doesn't pick & choose what it will & won't destroy if you press the "Go" button before setting it up properly. Same thing's true when promoting your biz. If you're a rookie and don't know what you're doing, you can easily set things up wrong. And this could easily resul...
