Recovering from A Major Setback

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

We all will suffer setbacks and disappointments. This is part of life. The key issue is how we work through these situations.

We see an example in Scripture when David’s child was acutely ill. “David prayed to God for the baby. David fasted and went into his house and stayed there, lying on the ground all night.  The elders of David’s family came to him and tried to pull him up from the ground, but he refused to get up or to eat food with them.” (2 Samuel 12:15 – 17, NIV)

After the child died, his advisors were afraid of what David’s reaction would be upon hearing of the child’s death. However, David’s response was:

When All Business Choices Are Bad

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

Like most of us, I don’t remember everything from business school.  However, one phrase from an instructor has always stuck with me. The professor said, “There will be times in your business career when all of your choices are bad, and your job will be to carefully analyze and select the least bad option.” Unfortunately, I have experienced this when none of my options were attractive.

Support a Cause to Grow Your Business

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

When customers buy, usually they are interested in convenience, value, and service. However, an increasing number of customers are also buying based on a cause.

Many advertisements market a cause. For example, a sock manufacturer touts that they gave away 60 million pairs of socks to homeless shelters, one pair for each pair sold. Their tagline boasts of “the greatest sock never sold.”

When I was shopping for socks a while ago, I went to their website.  Unfortunately, I was unable to find what I needed.  However, their advertisement was successful in getting me to visit their site.

Going Out of Business? Sell Your Customer List

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

With the COVID-19 virus devastating our nation, many businesses are forced to close. Businesses scramble to sell off assets for the best possible price. Unfortunately, it is difficult to make much on a quick sale. However, the business probably has a customer list that may be of value to others. 

Recently, I talked to a couple of business owners who needed to close their businesses.  The first was a landscaping business in a state that required businesses to close for several months. The owner did not have enough cash reserves to continue operations. The business had grossed approximately $200,000 in 2019. I helped them present the value of the mailing list, and he was able to sell the list for $12,000. While it was less than what the business made in 2019, it was better than nothing. The business that bought the mailing list also purchased some of the equipment.  In addition, the same business offered the owner a position as a crew supervisor which provided an opportunity for his employment.

As COVID-19 Accelerates Change, We Must Adapt

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

A crisis like COVID-19 creates devastating pain across the nation while at the same time opens opportunities. We see dramatic change in life patterns and are experiencing business changes occurring at a rapid pace. One critical skill for any businessperson is to recognize the changes that are already occurring and adjust to them.

One devastating statistic is that 25% of small businesses have closed this year and bankruptcies have increased 26%. This reality demonstrates how existing business models no longer work for many. In some situations, the change has affected entire industries, like the airline and the restaurant business. At the same time, the US Census Bureau reports new business applications have increased 5% between the first and second quarter. This represents 40,000 new business startups.
