Name Recognition

You’ve heard the expression, “Out of sight, out of mind.” This definitely applies to business. Every business must keep its name in front of customers with follow-up messages. Don’t think it’s important? Bet the competition does!

Customer Suggestions

tipoftheweek_sm

Have an easy, anonymous way for customers to give their honest input and suggestions to make your business better. Why should you care where the suggestion comes from if it is for your benefit? Satisfied customers are the lifeblood of any business. Take advantage of their recommendations and comments. Little cost, large return!

Communication

One mouth and two ears mean we should listen twice as much before we speak. Of course, we want to get our own ideas out but to be an effective communicator, it is important to listen to the other person. Listening before speaking just might lead to a valuable business improvement!

Fraud Happens

It happens all the time by the least suspected employee. Segregate duties to prevent fraud. Cross train and require vacations. Be alert and proactive in this area. A little caution on the front end prevents big headaches on the back end!

Feedback

Feedback is essential for any business. It let’s owners know how customers and employees perceive their business. Don’t be passive about feedback. Be active about it. Seek out opinions from others. Nothing can be more valuable than this “no cost” investment!

Be Prepared

What do you do when your key employee leaves…besides panic! Happens all the time. Be prepared. Take the time now to cross train and research independent contractors who you can hire on a temporary basis to fill the gap. A little preparation time on the front end saves big headaches on the back end!

Fighting your true calling

Mark Twain Quote 1

People are easily controlled and directed into silos of groups within a society. From birth on, we are programmed to fit into the “system” and find what we are good at. I remember at a young age wanting to be a sports star. I had my heros like everyone else, except I played the sports as if I was the hero. I was good, although I thought I was great at the time. The average player was always considered to be the one that was consistent. Never made a mistake or missed practice. I made my share of mistakes, but always recovered by doing even better next time.

I belive business minded people are grown. They have internal controls that allows them to go outside of the box and take the next steps necessary to be successful. However, I do not believe they become successful by just being themselves. Some business owners are given the business through generations and are grown by the family. Most believe the business is a gift they are obligated to run. So, its only natural to learn the business as a dependance to one’s life line.

We have all been on a journey to determine the answer to a question, “Why am I here?” Obviously that is a question only you can determine, even though I felt society (over the years) has made that decision for me. I’m now in the process of being what I want to be and doing what I want to do, I think?  Even though I have 30+ years working in society, I still have not determined why I was born.

I do know that I’ve always enjoyed helping others to succeed.  Can this actually be a reason why a person was born?

Nanotechnology Helps Make Nutrients More Available to the Body

LifePak nano

Pharmanex has revolutionized a way to apply nanotechnology principles to anti-aging nutrients. When applied to nutrition, this nano process involves physically altering a hard-to-absorb nutrient so that it becomes more available to the body without altering its function.

For example, fat-soluble vitamins, like carotenoids and CoQ10, tend to bunch together in the intestine, making them difficult to absorb. To enhance absorbability, individual molecules are separated using nano encapsulation. This process prevents molecules from clinging together so they are more available for easy absorption. This superior bioavailability with new patent-pending CR-6 LipoNutrients® is a first-ever formula to deliver NanoCoQ10® and nano carotenoids along with other nutrients for maximum anti-aging benefits. In the case of coenzyme Q10, this process of nano encapsulation increases bioavailability by 5–10 times* (Craft et al, 2005).
