You may remember this one, but I have a special treat for you this week. Every week, we have an opportunity to help a new homeowner in the process of construction. We’re looking for homeowners that are starting their new home, or those looking to replace their old home. We want to help you by giving you our tips & resources on how to buy a house with the best possible color finish. We want to help you get everything you need, even the extra few bucks.
For the last couple of years, I have been doing this for a couple of small companies in the New York City area. One of them was about 10 years old and had a lot of problems. After our first year, we ended up buying the company and having a second year of experience. We realized that we were wasting a lot of time and money because we kept hearing about the same mistakes being made over and over again. Even with this experience, we still hear the same mistakes being made.
This is a common problem, especially in companies like these. For every company that is doing things the right way, there are always others that are doing things the wrong way. In the case of one of our clients, it resulted in a new company being bought and a major restructuring of the company that was already a success.
The way companies are structured, it’s very easy to be a victim of your own success. If you’re running a successful company, then you’re going to make mistakes, including a lot of things that you don’t want to. And the more you try to fix the mistakes that you’re already making, the more you are going to make more of them.
A simple way to think of a company is that theyre trying to get a client out of a failed business. Like most business owners, you want to be able to do business with them in a way that you dont want to do with your customers. But, like most business owners, you dont want to be the one doing it. You also dont want to be the one telling them why they should do it. You want to make sure that they can do it.
People have a hard time admitting they have a bad business. And even more difficult to admit that they have a bad client. If you own a business you have already lost the customer for the business. Because youre not doing anything you can sell to them. Youre trying to sell something to them that they dont want. And, since youre not doing anything you can sell them, or they arent getting paid for your work, you can never sell them.
People with a bad business have a bad client, which is a lot of them. A bad client is someone who wants something from you, but because of the nature of your work, you have to sell something to them that they don’t want.
I believe it’s this second problem that has driven the majority of the business model away from selling to customers. The fact is that everyone wants to be paid for their work. I think we (myself included) sometimes forget that we should be selling something our customers want. I’m not talking about the latest hot tech gadget you purchased. I’m talking about the business that you’ve built, the way you’ve built it.
Selling is a two-step process. First you sell the idea. Then you sell the implementation. This is not a problem unique to the computer industry. In fact, there are a number of industries that still have this same problem. When I get asked, why do I not sell my software to developers and startups I answer, “Because I have not built it yet.” I want to sell my idea to people who want to be a part of the idea.
As in “I didn’t sell it to them.” This is a very common thing, but it is not a real problem. At the time it was only a matter of time until the developers who were using the idea could get something to work, and the business model could go on for years.
