What's Your Plan by Rick White, President 180BIZ

I'm going to ask you a real simple question. What's the plan? That's right. What's the plan? Dwight D. Eisenhower once said, “Plans are useless, but planning is indispensable.” You must have a plan. Set your intentions for where you're going in the coming week, the coming month, the coming year. We’re almost halfway through 2020. Don't let this year just flushed down the toilet. If you do, that's on you. That's your choice. You have an opportunity for an amazing rest of the year. What are you going to do to in the next six months to create that year? What are you going to do in the next six months as an opportunity to grow 2021? Use this last six months as a springboard for amazing results now and growing through 2021.

Everything that's been going on this year has been like a one two punch. Hasn't it? Between the Coronavirus and the shutdown. And then the racial tensions and stuff like that. And my heart goes out to...

The Thought for This Week is "Be Aware!"

 

Be Aware by Rick White, President 180BIZ

It’s time to see outside of your own issues. Be aware.. Let me explain to you what I'm talking about. You're in one of three phases of your business right now.

This is all admirable, but there have never been times like this. There's never been a time where we've just had issues stacking on top of each other.  We have the pandemic issue, the economy issue, and we have the racial tensions.

As business owners, we must be aware of our people.  We must be aware of where they are emotionally. We must see them and see their emotional stress level. There's so much going on. If they're just getting back to work, there could be financial...

The Word of the Day is MODES

 

Hi, my name is Rick white with 180Biz and I just want to talk about one thing for today and that is modes.

You see, in your business there are only two modes. There's DO IT mode and GROW IT mode and the problem that I see all the time with auto repair shops is the fact that they are in do it mode 98 or better percent of the time.  They are so much more comfortable with the DO IT part of their business versus the GROW IT part of their business. Now the first thing I want to share with you about this is the fact that you have to be intentional about creating time where you are in GROW IT mode. If you don't have that time set aside, then what ends up happening is you end up with the cycle of being really, really busy and then nothing and then really, really busy and then nothing. So you've got to have time for GROW IT mode. Now when I say GROW IT mode, most shops think I've got to advertise more, I need more customers and that's not the case. There are three ways to grow your...
