Next-Level Management: Where It Can Take Your Business

(Excerpt to Owners and Management)Listen to “Episode 15: Owners & Management” on Spreaker.

Owners and Management, the two key roles that can make or break your business. Why do I say make or break?

When you started your business, you had a view of where you wanted your business to go.You, being the decision maker……made decisions that you felt would lead your company or business venture to successful profits.

So you grew.

Adding your staff, and the one source behind your staff, you had to appoint, management.

Now  you had someone who could, create corporate policy, organize, and plan. But, you as owner, the head honcho in charge,  decides still to dictate how everything is done around them.  

Not speaking to everyone, not saying that every business owner feels this way.But, if you sit back and think over how your running things, and if you so happen to be doing your own thing, instead of letting your management do the same.

You the owner,  who has this type of  mind frame,  that management is just the person or persons controlling a few task, and people.

This lesson is definitely for you.

Well, management is far more than that..see… management directs the future course of your business enterprise!For small business or corporations in this day in age, to  attract, keep and grow substantially.  

You the owner, needs to step aside.

Your  business is your everything….it is,   but you as owner has the responsibly to  appoint a team of management that will take your business to the next-level.

Those who think constant intervention as beneficial or even necessary are only hindering the success of your managers.

Only when the board and the management coexist together in a harmonious manner can there be true progress for the organization.

For this to happen, there must be a provision for having independent directors and those directors that are not affiliated to the management.

See the world’s best managers, are focused on extraordinarily well! They are provide strong incentives, their free  from distractions,

and given  all the help they can use. Owners let them do what they can do.Run your company, but think next-level.

So those managers out there, with ideas and the abilty to shine, that have been held down by the control freak.

Its time to speak up.

But do you have what it takes to be next – level managemnt.  For those managers who are already there. You  have worked with the customers, vendors, advisors, consultants and others in the market.This happens because the board has a top view of the organization, and the management has a deeper insight.

Owners this you aspire to work with. They know how to train, develop and manage the people in your organization to move it to the next level.

CEO, when you learn the transfer of power is a more valuable formula, then your managment can become involved in projections of future success of your business .

Setting Smart Goals

Where do we began, and how do we set goals? I’ve done a little research and I think this method will help you set realistic goals that will be suitable both in your private and your professional life.

When you are setting a goal for yourself, there are couple things you want to think about, if this goal is obatinable, and how you are going to acheive the goal. How attractive is this goal to you,  and have you accepted  the commiment to follow through with the goal.

Asking yourself these questions is the smart way to set any goals you have.

Be clear what your goal consist of….start by writng your goals down. When wriiting use words, such as increase, and develope.  Dont set to many goals for yourself, this maybe too complicated to keep focus. 

Making sure your goals are attractive to you, will make it fun and make you more urgent in reaching them.

Think about your ambitions, think about your dreams, but whats most important is that you set goals that you really want to achieve.

You should feel that your goal is reasonable to acheive based on your indivdual resources, such as time, money, health,  and support. Just be aware of unreasonable goals that are difficult to reach.The steps will be to big, and will lead you into frustration.

Make sure you have a clear deadline for your goal and it if its more than one goal, make sure you have each one prioritzed. When you have accepted the responsiblity to yourself and your goal, make sure that you have gone over all of the formula,you have set in place to see you goal from start to finish!

By keeping consistant with these goal setting skills, you will continue to set goals with a high probability of achieving them and thats exactly what you need to have success!

Work, Life Balance


Today on the Business Plug Podcast

Today’s is Episode #14

WORK, Life, Balance:     How to manage them both!

Hey guys, I hope your day is off to a wonderful start. I want you to face the world today, focused, strong and ready.

My motivational quote for today is from: Eric Thomas- Motivational Speaker.  “When you want to succeed as bad as you breath, then you will be successful!” 

Very powerful, and I hope you take the time to meditate on this today.

Now lets get right into today topic and that is Work -Life Balance. How can you prioritize work ( your career and ambitions) verses your lifestyle (your family, health, pleasure). How can we succeed at both, which for most of us are very important.

I cant speak for all, however my perception of the subject, balancing both work and life play top priority in my view of success! Personally being able to succeed in my career and maintain my lifestyle, having either of the two intervene with the other, is my idea of succeeding.  Some may say how is this possible?

We’ll the light to the end of this tunnel may not be in sight, but with planning and preparations, this can be achieved. 

Well what is it going to take?

How many of you miss sharing moments with your spouse or children, because you find yourself, working endless hours in the workplace. I have a few tips to help you organize your work/ life situations to help you achieve the perfect balance.

Let’s start by nurturing yourself. You need the energy!

If you are unhealthy, there’s no possible way you will have the stamina, mentally or physically to deal with a day’s work, and come home and face your responsibility to your family.  Make sure you are getting the proper diet and rest.

You will feel much better and energized…..the two key factors to make the balance work.

Go at your day with a positive, mental, attitude, and know how to expect the unexpected. How many of you have let a stressful situation at work, come home with you, or have taking a stressful situation with you from home, to the workplace.

Leave that stress at the door!  Enter both home and work, with a open, positive mind.

Take 10 minutes of your time to de-stress yourself, before starting your work day, and evening with the family. For those who work at home, organization, and scheduling is Key! Make sure you are not intertwining your work time, with family time.

It’s important when we work at home that you keep a schedule just as you are leaving your home to commute to work. When your work day is done, its done!

I have one last tip for you today, lets look at how your living! I know most of us in the United States feel, we are worked, worked, worked. Take  time research other cites and countries and study their way of life.

Some of them have actually figured it out. When you see that it can be done.  Then it wont seem so hard to accomplish.

Think about your life, and where you want to be and how your gonna get there!

Operations are everything in a business. If there is a fluke in the way your company runs,  then its safe to say, you’re company is in jeopardy of losing, the much needed business, you have worked so hard to obtain.

Look at the scenario below and ask yourself what would you do if:

         Kim has been the marketing sales manager for over a year. Her sales reports show an increase in sales.

There are a few of the reps repeatedly complaining about Kim’s management style. 

She tends to get very involved with their techniques, calls them out when she thinks they are making a mistake, and doesn’t take criticism herself very well.

One of the top producing reps complains more than the others, and he is threatening to quit.

What do you do?


If you’re a corporation, ask yourself,  is management clear on what jobs need to be done, and who to execute them too?

If you have a small business, are you following the proper outline for an organized work flow?

If you don’t have an answer to these questions. Then don’t waste any more time losing valuable customers and revenue.

It’s a must, that these important factors are mastered in every successful business. If you are not practicing, I’m sorry to say, well, you’re in trouble!

To my fellow online marketers, these are some of the things that are to be considered when you are searching for your potential audience. Research and provide what your audience needs and wants, than go where they hang out to reach them. It’s that simple! No offense Millennials, but you are the future if today.  You Rock!
