Lighten Your Wallet before Traveling

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

I have traveled extensively for business, both internationally and domestically. A traveler’s wallet is a high risk for theft, especially from skilled pickpockets.

One trick I’ve used is to lighten my wallet. I remove all cards I don’t believe I will need on my trip. I usually carry one business and one personal card. I leave the rest at home.  That way, should the worst happen and I lose a card or my wallet, I don’t have to close all of my accounts.

Keeping Your Team Together

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

In the book of Romans Paul gave us a valuable lesson.  “Now I urge you, brethren, keep your eye on those who caused dissensions, and hindrances contrary to the teaching which you learned,  and turn away from them. For such a men are slaves, not of our Lord Christ but of their own appetites; and by their smooth and flattering speech they deceive hearts of the unsuspecting.” (Romans 16:17-18, NASB)

Start-up Capital

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

Frequently business personnel come to me looking for assistance to raise start-up funds for business. My answer is fairly simple; however, the implementation may not be as easy. There are four ways to obtain capital for starting a business.

1.      Start by investing your own accumulated funds. 

Frequently an entrepreneur will not have enough funds to properly launch a business venture. In these instances the owner will need to invest more time than money. While this may take longer to get a business off the ground, you will not need to look elsewhere for funds.

Enforce Deadlines

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

I enforce deadlines that I receive from others as well as those I make for  myself. Frequently, others are not as committed to meeting deadlines. At one point in my career “Rick” worked for me. The quality of his work was excellent, and he was very good with customer relationships. Unfortunately Rick was perpetually late with everything including client appointments.  Regrettably, Rick needed to be let go because his failure to consistently meet deadlines destroyed the effectiveness of his other excellent traits.

Validate Key Items on Your Website

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

The beginning of a New Year is a good time to verify a number of housekeeping items on your website.  It’s like changing the batteries in your smoke detector.  If you don’t do this twice a year the smoke detector may fail without your knowledge when needed most.
