    Why is it Time for an Annual Checkup for Both You and Your Company 2016 Version

    Over the past few years many of you probably read my blog regarding having a checkup for you and your business. This does not involve the doctor, but it does involve all the other professionals in your personal and business life. Since that time, I decided to make this topic an annual tradition. This is based in part on the range of feedback I receive every year. 

    Some of you said "What a great idea. I am … Read More

  • Two People. One Conversation. Did You Both Leave with the Same Understanding?

    Two People. One Conversation. Did You Both Leave with the Same Understanding?

    We hear and read a lot about listening fully, i.e. listen to what is being said instead of thinking of what to say next or in response; pay attention. This is easier said than done, which results in many people having a conversation and unknowingly walking away with differing understandings of what was spoken about or agreed to. This can lead to many issues, wasted time and work, and erode trust between the people … Read More

    Don’t Forget to Give Back

    Life moves fast. We all have so many commitments in business and personally it can be hard to find time to sit back and relax. Despite this, it is important to commit to give back to your community and those in need. We all know this intuitively, but following through and committing our own time can be difficult.

    But not only is your time and assistance needed by numerous non-profits and those they benefit, you& … Read More

  • Seize the Moment!

    Seize the Moment!

             If you have my attention, blow my mind. Impress me and make me want to know more or invest in you or spread what you have shared. Opportunities are everywhere, but you need to treat them like they can be life altering. 

     

            This can be something general like just being nice to everyone. Was that millennial dressed more casual than you think … Read More

  • Challenge Yourself!

    Challenge Yourself!

         Not sure what I mean by this? I will explain. I mean set goals, both short term and long term. And once you set the “goal,” which you should do in writing, write the action steps to get there. If you have no roadmap how can you expect to ever find that goal, let alone reach it. One roadmap you can follow is turning your goals into SMART goals:  

    Specific – target a& … Read More

  • Don't Talk Too Much!

    Don't Talk Too Much!

    We all know that person, the one you meet in a business or personal setting who cannot stop themselves from dominating a conversation or room. They don’t let anyone else say much. When the conversation or meeting is over, you know too much about them assuming they spoke about themselves, which most people like that do, or too much of their personal opinions, and we all know the saying about opinions and … Read More

  • Be On Time

    Be On Time

    Be on time. Yes, it is that simple. Everyone's time is valuable. We all have one more thing we can do before walking down the hall for that scheduled meeting or leaving to make it on time to that lunch meeting. What this really boils down to is that we all need to honor our commitments.  

    When you show up late you are saying "what I was doing is more important than being on time for you." If it is worth … Read More

    Update: Are There Fiduciary Duties between Members in an Arizona LLC?

    A few years ago I wrote an article named Are There Fiduciary Duties between Members in an Arizona LLC? At the time, there were no published decisions in Arizona on this issue.  However, a bankruptcy judge had dismissed my client's claim for breach of fiduciary duty against a fellow member in an LLC because (1) she found the Arizona LLC statutes were silent on … Read More

  • Who is Your Customer or Client?

    Who is Your Customer or Client?

    Of course the answer to this question is dependent on what you do, but if you don't start by answering this question you will miss out on opportunities. The answer, based on your line of work, may be a type or category of businesses or categories or people. 

    Some sales people think the answer is anyone and everyone, but it isn't. On the surface, if you are in pharmaceutical sales it is doctors or medical … Read More

    Perseverance and You

    Working to Obtain Your Goals

    Perseverance is everything. There is no excuse to ever give up. If you doubt this, you either have had success handed to you, which happens rarely, if ever, or you come up against trying to reach a goal and pivot instead of pushing through to reach your desired result. You may even describe your pivot as a strategic change of plans based on adjusting to the circumstances. Or is it an … Read More
