A Salute to an American Icon, and What He Can Teach Us About Small Business
Today’s show starts with a salute to an American Icon – Jimmy Buffet. We were saddened to hear of his passing, and the world will miss the joy he brought to the world.
But scattered among his memorable career is a lesson for small business owners. Jimmy Buffet knew exactly what people wanted out of him and what he was selling. You might think I’m referring to his albums and concert tickets but it goes much deeper than that. He sold a “feeling” and then he productized it.
What feeling do you provide to your customers? Learn how to get clear on that and watch your business grow!
Also on this episode:
- Networking / Building a Business – Why do we need the right people in our life? Pat had an experience over the weekend that reminded him of the importance of having a network. Don’t have a network yet? Start with the Idea Collective Small Business Community and grow from there!
- Execution / Business Ownership – Brad Herda, owner of Vision Forward Business Solutions is here sharing the common things you need to consider to graduate from having a job that pays you to owning a business.
- Success Story – Let’s give a shoutout to Roger Wolkoff, from All About Authenticity! Roger recently hired a part-time contractor to help in the areas he feels aren’t his strengths. Sometimes letting go of some control is HARD, but for Roger, it’s been a match made in heaven!
