Business Practices

Do you know someone who is vocal about what he or she doesn’t like? Being mouthy and opinionated is a big turnoff, especially when you’re attempting to communicate with one of these “vocal” customers. If you have a customer who is mouthy when mad, think about how much more mouthy and opinionated he or she could be when happy!

When did you last spend quality time evaluating all aspects of your business? If you’re in sales, how much time, energy, and effort are you putting into to some client relationships and is your sales volume reflective of that time spent? More importantly, is it a profitable relationship for you and your company?

Most companies, at some point or another, have created a mission statement that is meant to define their purpose or vision for conducting business. Mission statements can look great on a plaque hanging in your office or on your website for prospective clients to see, but when was the last time you reviewed it to make sure you and your staff are actually "living" it? Would you even be able to rattle it off without looking? If you haven't visited your mission statement in a while, or ever, there has never been a more critical time to do so.
