How To Be A Market Leader?

What do I mean when I say Market Leader?   

A market leader often dominates its competitors in customer loyalty, distribution coverage, image, perceived value, price, profit, and promotional spending.  This makes the Brand, product, or market hold the largest percentage of total sales revenue (the market share) of a market.

Becoming a leader in a market with well-established players is very hard so you have to come up with something different, something exciting, something memorable, something that hasn’t been done before.

What makes you different in a sea of competition?

Are Your Habits A Mind Blocker?

Who doesn’t have habits…….Good and Bad but what can we learn from habits?

Sometimes it can be your habits that determine your success - or stand in its way.

As we grow older our habits have trained our subconscious mind to only let us see the things that will continue to keep us unsuccessful.

Really think about this – If up until this point in life, the attention has been mainly noticing all the areas where we were NOT successful, and working on that, our subconscious mind thinks THAT’S what we’re most interested in. It’s almost like losing the ability to see opportunities!

The Mindset & the 5 Second Rule

If you’re like me, you will have heard throughout your life that “Motivation” is the key to achieving your goals and accomplishing your bucket list.  “Motivation” is a key but if you have the mindset and use the 5 Second Rule you will find that your “Motivation” follows and it isn’t such a huge mountain to climb over.

That’s why the 5 Second Rule is essential to learn–it will be the push you need in the moments when you don’t feel like doing something but know you should do it.”

10 Challenges....Have You Met Them Yet?

If you’re one of the many business owners spinning numerous plates and tackling everything that needs doing single-handed, then you may have found many of these challenges along the way. 

We live in rapidly changing times, especially for businesses. Consider, that in a single generation, businesses have had to adapt to entirely new marketing channels (web and social), decide how to invest in and utilize new technologies, and compete on a global stage — things that were barely imaginable to our parents’ and grandparents’ generations.

One side effect of these rapid changes and growth is that no single business owner — or any employee, for that matter — can be an expert in everything. This was, perhaps, always true, but it has never been more apparent.

This is why, in my opinion, some of the biggest challenges businesses face today are best met and addressed by someone from outside your business. Bringing on a consultant helps business owners add the expertise and skills they need to address particular issues at particular times, and can provide the best possible outcomes.

Just a few of the challenges I see businesses facing that are best addressed with the help of a consultant include:
