Secret – timesaving technique
Ben asks himself eight specific questions each morning – these questions get his brain on the right track. ONWARD!
Daily habit that contributes to success
Have a breakfast that you’re excited for each morning – Ben has three eggs sunny-side up, refried beans, and a cup of half-caffeinated coffee – and he changes the menu when it gets boring.
Could have ruined your business – but now – an invaluable learning experience
Ben realized he wasn’t employee material – and Ben tells the whole story here.
Most critical skill you think business owners need to master to be successful
“The ability to listen to clients and identify the pain points and problems they have so that I can help find a solution for the problems they’re having.”
Most influential lesson learned from a mentor
“You don’t have to do it yourself – find someone who has done what you want to do.”
Final Round – “Breaking Down the Recipe for Success”
What systems would you go back and put into place sooner?
I wish had a system for asking initial clients for referrals to other clients.
What one strategy or “recipe” would compound into big wins for business owners?
Ask the question “What opportunity do I have today?”
How to exceed expectations and add the most value?
An individual would ask themselves every day what are they doing to move the business forward.
What strategy would you recommend new business owners focus on to best ensure success?
- Be brutally honest to yourself – what do you want from your business?
- Surround yourself with the right people – the people that will help you get where you want to go
- Keep your ear to the ground – be there to find opportunities to solve people’s problems
- Get proof of concept – how can you prove you can solve people’s problems
