Have you done your best?

Any of you out there with kids in their last year of Primary School will know that it’s SAT’s time and for me the stress they put 10 and 11 year olds under to get results can be counterproductive, yes it’s important to get a good education and the next step for these children is Senior School where things change dramatically yet high levels of stress caused by the fear of getting low scores or failing can affect performance in two different ways. Stress can help when it makes people more alert, more motivated to practice, and gain a competitive edge. In the right amount, stress helps prepare, focus, and perform at an optimal level. Conversely, too much stress, or bad stress, can cause performance anxiety, which hurts health and does not allow people to perform at a relaxed, confident, and focused level.

For me I am always prouder of myself, my Children, Team and clients when they have performed at their best than at the actual results. After all we can really do is do our best to achieve what we set out and if we miss it or get it wrong then we can always have another go.

So how do you approach building your business, have you achieved your potential or are you still avoiding trying so that you don’t fail?

What is your true potential and have you really done your best to achieve it?

Are you still trying your best to achieve it?

Have you asked for any help to achieve it?

How long have you been hoping things get better?

If you still have things that you want to achieve, teams that you want to be better or simply want to discover what you best is then

2.5 Billion People to Choose From?

In the last week, I have had more than one person tell me that their customers are not on LinkedIn or Facebook and that they don’t see the point of maintaining a Strong Social Media presence.

I mean seriously who exactly are their customers and where the hell are they hiding, 2.5 billion is pretty much everyone in the developed world.

You know how he told me this?

On LinkedIn messages, yep on Social Media I was told that Social Media doesn’t work for this person, and I am they type of person who might buy his services.

Of course it doesn’t work if you have no interpersonal skills, if you can’t talk to people then do the rest of us a favour and get out of business right now or employ someone who can interact with people.

5 days a week I write these tips and ideas that are aimed at helping people grow their business, these are given freely and without expectation of anything in return, I simply offer to talk to people who feel they would like to achieve more and understand they need a different perspective to move forward.

For the most part analysts agree that a 5-7% churn rate is good so even if you are performing at the top of your game you need to replace 5- 7% of your customers every year just to maintain current sales levels, on top of that the average increase in costs for a business is currently 2 – 3% so just to stay safe you need 10% growth every year to maintain your level of performance.

If your customers aren’t on Social Media where exactly are they?

For those of you that like your numbers, 63% of the UK population are on Social Media, (ONS) the makeup of the UK population by age shows that 64.6% are in the ages between 16 and 69 that’s pretty much everyone.

If you don’t want to move forward, if you don’t want any new customers if you are just waiting for your existing ones to leave and quietly close the doors of your business why the hell are you reading this?

If you do want to grow your business then start taking Social Media Seriously.
