$52,000 in Sales a Week? Yes please...

Our Weekly 2 Minute Read

Edition 61 - September 1, 2019
 

I've had the opportunity to be mentored by some very successful business owners.

I've also had the opportunity to have friends that are being mentored by very successful business owners.

But in the past few weeks, I've been very lucky to learn from someone who takes companies from being good to being great.

If you shop at any retail store, there's a good chance that you've seen his products.

What exactly?

I'll leave that for another time.

But I've seen enough proof in sales (aka the very good-looking number in the title) that demonstrates his abilities.

The one thing most people miss?

The little things.

Most people do 90% of the work.

The difference between being good at something versus being great at something is in the last 10%.

Fitness is a perfect example.

Most people can create some sort of consistent gym schedule. Most people can create some sort of diet regimen. But only those who elevate their workouts and nutrition to the last level are truly achieving those sculpture-like bodies.

Same in business.

A business owner can work his/her butt off to close a major deal.

It might be a large real estate sale. It might be an enormous purchase order. It might be a game-changing hire.

It can be a tremendous financial gain for any business owner.

But, until that job is truly complete, it's not done. Most business owners secure the deal and then immediately think of the next one. The truly great business owners secure the deal and then accelerate on the gas to finish out the last leg.

And that, my friends, is the only difference between being good and being great.
