Sorry sometimes I just get off the subject of Foreclosures and need to write my thoughts. When these thoughts hit me I have to write them down and I hope that you find them useful.
When starting a business one of the first things that you should do is identify your strengths and clearly outline your weaknesses. The mistake many people make is they do things to magnify your strengths and then work hard at turning their weaknesses into strengths as well. Often the spend considerable time and money not working on improving their strengths but in trying to eliminate their weaknesess.
Your weaknesses are part of your persona your personal life. Here they just can't be swept under the rug and ignored but must be recognized. However, in business if you spend time working on your weaknesses you may be really missing the boat and doing both your business and yourself a disservice.
When beginning in business most of you will work hard to overcome your weaknesses. You will invest in self improvement tapes, boot camps, etc. all in the effort to improve your perceived weaknesses. You will try to do it all yourself and be everything to everybody. The end result of this is rather than doing things you are good at and making money, you end up spending money trying to fix things you were not good at.
There is a much better way to operate in business. This method is to simply spend your money hiring people that already possess the skills that you lack within your business. Also if you do not have a viable system for your business it may be better for you to purchase a proven system to operate your business rather than to spend time trying to reinvent the wheel.
The first step is for you to clearly identify your strengths and weaknesses within you business and come up with a plan to maximize those strengths and find ways to fill in the gaps created by your weaknesses. One of the most efficient ways to do this is to align yourself with a coach with whom you are comfortable.
Many people balk at the idea of spending money on coaching but the greatest athletes in the world all have coaches. In business most very successful business people had mentors that helped them achieve their success. Few if any were able to unlock all the secrets on their own.
If you feel the need for some support building your business or moving your business to the next level I would like the opportunity to speak with you about some of the coaching and mentoring options that I am developing.
In the last several months I have been contacted by numerous readers of my blogs and Newsletter asking for help and it has made me realize that perhaps a more formal program could be useful. Feel free to contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can arrange to speak about the program.
Sorry for this shameless advertisment but I felt it could serve a good purpose.
Yours in Success,
