Taking You Down To The Trash Dump

A great way to save money when you own your own business is by learning how to take your own trash to the dump. However, this can often jeopardize the value of what you are creating. If you don’t have the expertise to do a job effectively, you must look at your time being worth more than your money. You’ll never get your time back, so it’s often worth it to value what you need and pay an expert price.

Don’t be the company who does it on your own and fails, get the right advice by figuring out who does what best and letting them do it. The Entrepreneurial Operating System can help you get a jump on your competition by making the conscious decision to be the hunted instead of the hunter.

The Power Of No – Essentialism

Do you understand the power of no? Saying no allows you to prioritize what you and your team are focused on, which is a major factor in how successful your business can be.

Saying no can make or break how well you do in business. It is when we say no that we are also able to say yes to opportunities that may not have been possible unless you said no to something else. Jim Coyle discusses how saying no is a key factor of EOS, and how important it is to learn how to focus and make sure you ‘walk before you run’.
