DOLLARS PER VALUE

Image

You don’t get paid for the hour, you get paid for the VALUE you put in the time. We don’t get paid for time. We get paid for VALUE. ~ Jim Rohn

Question: If we don’t get paid by the hour but by value do we need to be physically at the work place eight hours a day?

Hmmm…

All results are measured in VALUE though its takes time for a work (or value) to be produced.

It is not the number of hours we put in at the workplace but the value produce in the number of hours we are physically present. When we say we get PAID PER VALUE, we mean that an individual gets paid per the value she PRODUCES. This same individual can be physically present in the workplace and not produce. After awhile of being unproductive, she will not have a job. What some call “GETTING FIRED” we call a “BREAK-UP.” Break-Ups occur when one individual outgrows another or if the terms of agreement are not being met.

Food for thought: When we were in junior high, we spent at least seven hours in school (which produced a nine to five mindset).If we didn’t PRODUCED anything (exceptional grades) we were held back.

Our personal and professional lives are measured in results (or outcomes), not activity.

WORD!

Self vs. Us

Image

 

Every business meeting has an agenda that must be administered and followed to the tee. The agenda of a meeting is very much similar to a grocery list of “to do’s” for a company. Some employees purchase the wrong items because they are either in the wrong aisle of the store. There is even a possibility that they may be in the wrong store.

How do some of us end up in the wrong store?
Why do some of us end up in the wrong aisle?
Why are some of us purchasing the wrong items?

Self is the answer to these questions, but self is NOT THE ANSWER.
When we filter our communications through the lens of self, we cannot follow our company’s agenda to the tee. If we miss the tee, then we miss OUR goal.

YOUR success is dependent on the reception of communications according to your agenda.

OUR success is dependent on the reception of communications according to our agenda.

– Our agenda is set forth by the organization we with work with.
– We must receive information through the filter of US.

UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL.

The “receipt” of the communications for employees are the PERFORMANCE outcomes that are set forth by the organization.

– Customer Acquisition
– Customer Retention
– Product Quality
– Product Quantity
– Revenue

How much do these items cost?
The grocery list of items above has a price tag of SELF.

Hmm…

Communications can also be viewed as a deposit of information released from one individual or group of people to another individual or group of people. At times the deposit can’t be made because one or more of the individuals involved in the exchange (or transaction) is preoccupied with SELF. Our agenda is sometimes louder than the agenda of the organization. This is one of the reasons why we don’t hear our future calling; SELF mutes the incoming call of OUR FUTURE.

We must lay down our agenda to benefit others!
This is effective communications.

Talent Investing Program – Case Study # 1 (CRUNCH TIME!)

Today we needed a flyer to promote our church’s community outreach event. The event was coined with the name “C.O.B.” for Community Outreach Barbecue. This barbecue was to take place this Saturday at high noon so there was no time to spare.

WE NEEDED A FLYER TODAY, NOT TOMORROW.
WE NEEDED A FLYER ASAP! 

THE MONEY WASN’T THE ISSUE, THE TIMING WAS.

CRUNCH TIME!

With humility, I can confidently say that I am an entrepreneur. I AM ENTREPRENEUR with a strong network of skilled specialists. I have been graced with the ability to effectively use my network. My network is my RESOURCE BANK better known as “HUMAN CAPITAL.” I have made countless deposits into my HUMAN RESOURCE BANK which allows me to make a countless number of withdraws.

Remember: A solopreneur is as an ENTREPRENEUR who works alone, “solo,” running their business SINGLE-HANDEDLY. They do the administrative tasks, marketing, customer service and service delivery typically by themselves. ~ Urban Dictionary.com

A Jack or Jane of all trades, and a master of none.

I am an entrepreneur because I work systematically, and I don’t mind staying in my lane. I use every resource available in efforts to accomplish my goal or desired outcome.

The Desire Outcome: A FLYER

So… 

This idea strikes me: One of my students is excellent at doing flyers, powerpoint presentations, and graphic design. She is phenomenal at what she does, and what she does comes naturally.

How can I pay her for her services?

Hmm…

Idea #1: I can offer her community services hours in exchange for her services.

Idea #2: I can also provide her with a recommendation in exchange for her services.

Idea #3: When I share this experience with my network, I can attach the flyer she created and this can be free marketing for her and her business.

All these ideas can result in more opportunities for her to make some money.

Attached is the end result. 

Check it out…

EARNEST MONEY

 

Image

Food for thought: Wherever you are and whatever you do, you are always making a deposit. This is your“EARNEST” money. If you have ever purchased a home you are aware that you have to make a deposit to be considered as a serious buyer. 

When we invest our time, talent, and treasures we make deposits into our future and into the future of others. When I share my experiences with you it is a DEPOSIT. A deposit is made into the Bank of Your Future.

 

Money – Freedom – Time – Family – Comfort

Image

 

Money – Freedom – Time – Family – Comfort 

What do all these words have in common?

Hmm…

#1 – Each of these words paints a picture of an outcome or result.
#2 – Each of these outcomes are desired by those who are employees of a company.
#3 – Each of these outcomes are desired by those who are aspiring or established entrepreneurs.
#4 – Each of these outcomes can be achieved if aspiring or established entrepreneurs begin working together SYSTEMATICALLY.

If you were to ask any aspiring and established entrepreneur why she started a business, she would probably reply, “I want to be my own boss” or “I am tired for working for someone else.”

“I WANT TO BE MY OWN BOSS.”
“I’M TIRED FOR WORKING FOR SOMEONE ELSE.”

Does this song sound familiar?

There are many instances where having your own business can become stressful and burdensome, why?

Because many aspiring entrepreneurs want to fly solo. Hence, turn an entrepreurship into a solopreneur. The solopreneur become tired of working for herself because she is attempting to do too much.

TOO MUCH IS NOT ENOUGH WHEN YOU ARE FLYING SOLO!

Remember that Urban Dictionary.com defines a solopreneur as an ENTREPRENEUR who works alone, “solo,” running their business SINGLE-HANDEDLY. The typical solopreneur is easily tempted to become a work-a-holic, not feeling their work is ever done! They do the administrative tasks, marketing, customer service and service delivery typically by themselves.~ Urban Dictionary.com

So with this being said we can stratch out FREEDOM, TIME, FAMILY AND COMFORT from our desired outcomes.

And all we have left is MONEY.

HEY…. 1 out of 5 is only 20 percent. This tells us that there is much room for improvement. Money serves no purpose if we don’t have any freedom, time, family or comfort.

Question: Should an entrepreneur work to run and improve her business alone?

If she desires to achieve the outcome of money only then the answer is, “YES.”

However….

If she desires a well-balance diet of Money, Freedom, Time, Family, Comfort then the answer is, “NO.”

The Solopreneur

The Solopreneur

Urban Dictionary.com defines a solopreneur as an ENTREPRENEUR who works alone, “solo,” running their business SINGLE-HANDEDLY. They might have contractors for hire, yet have full responsibility for the running of their business.

Furthermore…

The typical solopreneur is easily tempted to become a work-a-holic, not feeling their work is ever done! They do the administrative tasks, marketing, customer service and service delivery typically by themselves.~ Urban Dictionary.com

WOW!

Our question to you is: Are you a solo-preneur?

or

Are you an entrepreneur?

A true entrepreneur is one who creates a vortex or several vortices through which wealth flows to himself and all his associates, including investors, employees, suppliers, etc. He/she sees economic potential (i.e. potential value) that others do not see, so he builds SYSTEMS in order to CAPTURE that value efficiently.~ Peter Nguyen

According to Mr. Nguyen the outcome of true entrepreneurship is a SYSTEM that reliably and systematically creates value and converts that value, through reliable and SYSTEM commercialization into CASH.

So…

Here lies another hard question: Do you have a system that allows wealth to flow to your and all of your associates including investors, employees or suppliers?

or…

Are you a solo-preneur who typically does the administrative tasks, marketing, customer service, service delivery tasks?

If you are a solo-preneur we want to help you become an entrepreneur.

 

 

Why do some small businesses fail?

Image

Recently, we’ve read several articles that described why some small businesses fail. From growing too fast to poor execution to ineffective marketing.

The list goes on and on… 

These all are indeed FACTS. However all FACTS are subject to change when principles are involved. Principles are “FUND-A-MENTAL” truths that serve as the foundation for building a business.

In order for your business to weather the economical storm of inconsistency, your foundation must be built on principles, and not facts.

So… 

Really, why do some small businesses fail?

LACK OF HUMAN CAPITAL: In the multitude of counsel there is safety.

Wisdom is the principal thing. Wisdom comes from “PEOPLE” known as “HUMAN CAPITAL” who have a proven business model, skill, or expertise in a given area. These people are called, “SPECIALISTS.” Specialists specialize in a specific field of expertise.

Now…

Can you really afford to hire a specialist? 
Can you really afford not to hire a specialist?

Honoring the terms of agreement

Image

Inquiring minds would like to know:

Have you ever been involved in a break-up?
Why did the break-up occur?
Whose fault was it?
Were you the person who initiated the break-up or where you the victim of the break-up?

Break-ups (or divorces) occur when one or two parties do not honor the terms of agreement. An agreement can be ORAL OR WRITTEN. The success of any relationship (personal or professional) is determined on the transfer, acceptance and understanding of clear-cut expectations that are agreed upon by the parties (people, places or things) involved in the relationship.

Do you understand the terms of agreement with who or what you are in relationship with?

Food for thought: People involved in PRODUCTIVE RELATIONSHIPS give more concern to the person, place or thing they are in the relationship with than they do themselves.

Questions to self:

1. Why are we discussing relationships and breaking-up?
2. How does this relate to having a job?
3. How doe this relate to a having a career?

At times, we find difficulties adjusting to our workplace when we are not fully aware of the terms of agreement. If we are not fully aware, then we don’t possess the ability to agree. If we don’t possess the ability to agree then we can’t align ourselves with the expectations agreed upon in the beginning of the relationship. The result is a break-up (or divorce).

Extra food for thought: There are times when we take our workplaces for granted, and when this occurs the result is ABUSE.

There is hope…

When we become fully aware of the terms of agreement, we can agree and align with the expectations agreed upon in the beginning of the relationship.
