The Single Most Important Ingredient for Business Success

The first and most important thing you need to acquire in order to succeed in a small business is... knowledge.

Sounds exaggerated? Listen to this...

According to research conducted by Dun & Bradstreet, 90% of all small business failures can be traced to poor management resulting from lack of knowledge.

This is backed up by my own personal observations. In my 31 years as a business coach and consultant to small businesses, I've seen practically dozens of small business owners go under and lose their businesses -- not because they weren't talented or smart enough -- but because they were trying to re-invent the wheel rather than rely on proven, tested methods that work.

Conclusion: if you are really serious about succeeding in a business... If you want to avoid the common traps and mistakes... it is absolutely imperative that you acquire the right knowledge.

"Why Invent Mediocrity, When You Can Copy Genius?"

That's an excellent quote I picked up from a fellow business owner a few years back. What this means is that you should see what is working and try to duplicate Printing Business. Why go through all the trouble of inventing something new, that you don't even know will ever work, when you can easily learn from and duplicate something that has been a proven success?

[ Note: One of the BIGGEST mistakes almost all new businesses make is that they WASTE tons of valuable time, energy and money on trying to create something "new", that has never been tested or proven... only to find out later that it was a total loss. Don't make the same mistake! ]

Success Tip: Setting Goals

Good management is the key to success and good management starts with setting goals. Set goals for yourself for the accomplishment of the many tasks necessary in starting and managing your business successfully. Be specific. Write down the goals in measurable terms of performance. Break major goals down into sub-goals, showing what you expect to achieve in the next two to three months, the next six months, the next year, and the next five years. Beside each goal and sub-goal place a specific date showing when it is to be achieved.

Plan the action you must take to attain the goals. While the effort required to reach each sub-goal should be great enough to challenge you, it should not be so great or unreasonable as to discourage you. Do not plan to reach too many goals all at one time.

Establish priorities. Plan in advance how to measure results so you can know exactly how well you are doing. This is what is meant by "measurable" goals. If you can’t keep score as you go along you are likely to lose motivation. Re-work your plan of action to allow for obstacles which may stand in your way. Try to foresee obstacles and plan ways to avert or minimize them.

Introduction: If you are a baby boomer and want to come along for the booming party, join me here and we will have a blast. COMPANY NAME supplies their followers with real life information for those that are approaching or are older than fifty years old.
The Company: COMPANY NAME was conceived to share information on booming through the ages after 50. INSERT NAME wanted to take all baby boomers on the trip and have a blast.

Our Services: Services for COMPANY NAME is simple; they post web content for their viewers and sell advertisement space to those companies looking to reach a niche audience of individuals approaching or have past the age of fifty.
The Market: Social media gets a lot of discussion and even a lot of participation from marketers, but in most cases budgets remains low. One reason for the reluctance to invest more is the old problem of ROI, Return on Investment. While some marketers have created successful social media campaigns that they feel they can measure and determine a benefit from, many have still not solved the social success equation. Fame, as well as more monetization options/potential for your blogs, goes alongside personal satisfaction. Another advantage is that big blogs usually market or promote themselves automatically once a certain level of fame has been achieved.

Financial Considerations: The current financial plan for COMPANY NAME is to obtain grant funding in the amount of $300,000. The grant will be used to expand their market share, purchase equipment, and hire an employee. COMPANY NAME will also use the grant funds to begin an intense marketing and advertising campaign starting in 2011. A portion of the grant funds will be used to hire 1 new employee. This increase in employees will allow COMPANY NAME to give more personal attention to current clients as well as have the capacity to add new clients over the next 3 years. Without the grant funding it will make it almost impossible to add the additional employees that are needed to increase market share for COMPANY NAME.
