Understanding Your Style

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

Each person has a natural style for conducting business. You are more effective the better you understand the style the Lord has gifted you with. Embrace that style rather than fighting against it. Your style matters.

Pastor Steve is a gifted communicator through his Sunday messages.  He writes out his entire message word for word and it reads his message. His presentation doesn’t let you know that he had word for word preparation.  Pastor Steve needs to write everything out in advance; it’s his style.

I frequently interact with businesses that need to improve sales and want to develop effective marketing campaigns.  Clearly, increasing sales is an important and necessary goal.  Many business owners want a magic solution. Even as investment funds are available, the business owner may just want to write a check for instant results. Unfortunately, this doesn’t always work.

Dress for Success

I may be dating myself with this article and I know many younger workers will not agree with my premise. Years ago John T. Molloy wrote a best-selling business book, Dress For Success, which I believe is out-of-print. The theme of the book was dress for the job that you would like not the one that you have.
I’ve counseled a number of younger workers about their business career. One piece of advice that I always provide is to upgrade their wardrobe.  I’ve heard the same response many times, “It’s not how I look; it’s what I know and do.”  I usually respond by saying, “But the LORD said to Samuel, ‘Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.’" (1 Samuel 16:7, NIV) My point is that most people do look at outward appearances.

Addressing Overhead

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

I reached a point in my business career when a terrifying thought struck me:  I had become overhead. In the past my positions focused on direct work with customers or clients that brought in revenue. However, my administrative responsibilities were focused elsewhere. When I grasped the implications of what it meant that I no longer generated income for the company, I took two major steps to maximize my situation.
