Episode 114: Perseverance, Determination, and Working Less?
Russ and John teach us with a quote about competitors. The Social Security act was passed on this week in 1935, along with IBM's first PC being completed in 1981. We learn what bloggers mean by MSM, as well as a cancelled chartered flight due to a cell phone mishap.
Russ has an inspirational onsite conversation with Chris Gardner, owner and CEO of Christopher Gardner International Holdings and protagonist of the 2006 motion picture The Pursuit of Happiness, starring Will Smith. Chris tributes his success and perseverance over his struggles to his mama and a refusal to quit. He shares with us his belief in Spiritual Genetics, a choice everyone has.
The Business Makers reminisce about an interview with the author of The 4-hour Work Week, Timothy Ferriss. Erica and Tim discuss what (besides the title) is driving sales of his book, as well as the various ways to cut back on the time spent "working." Tim talks about his own scaling down and removing the "noise" to focus on his high impact customers, therefore spending less time on the things he liked doing the least.
Greg Price continues his discussion of Key Performance Indicator's (KPI's) and how they can be used to evaluate and improve your business.
