Could have ruined your business – but now – an invaluable learning experience

Todd lost 70-80% of his business fast – and Todd tells the whole story here.

Most critical skill you think business owners need to master to be successful

“Have a good succession plan in place – have a strong retirement cash flow.”

Most influential lesson learned from a mentor

“Do the job right the first time – put yourself in the place of the business owner.”

 

Final Round – “Breaking Down the Recipe for Success”

 

What systems would you go back and put into place sooner?

I would have put in a higher quality system of checks and accountability – define roles and responsibilities.

What one strategy or “recipe” would compound into big wins for business owners?

Consistently survey your clients – find out what they’re interested in.

How to exceed expectations and add the most value?

An individual would focus, focus, focus – and give them a permission slip to give complaints without penalty.

What strategy would you recommend new business owners focus on to best ensure success?

  1. Keep your overhead low – don’t dream too big
  2. Be focused on your marketing – market your product in a way that’s not expensive
  3. Be in tuned with what your clients want – what they want may be different than what they say they want
