Biz-Edge Video Series: Episode Four – What’s Luck Got To Do With Business Success?

Welcome to Biz-Edge where we answer YOUR business questions. In the fourth of the Summer 2012 Series, I address a question from a reader of my Small Business Growth & Innovation Newsletter about the role of luck in business.

Are you seizing lucky business opportunities? I’m often asked why I wrote about the role of luck in business. It turns out lucky business owners (defined as those whose businesses are growing) are actually engaged in different business activities than folks who are simply working hard (but not able to seize lucky opportunities). Learn more about what these activities are by watching this week’s video.

Biz-Edge Video Series: Episode One – The VIP Called YOU!

Welcome to Biz-Edge where we answer YOUR business questions. In the first of the Summer 2012 Series, I address a question from a reader of my Small Business Growth & Innovation Newsletter about working ON your business as opposed to IN your business.

When was the last time you made an appointment with yourself? You make appointments with VIP clients, prospects and other key players in your business, right? So why not with yourself? You’re a VIP – the most important one in your business! You need to begin treating yourself like one and start focusing your efforts to work ON your business versus simply IN it. Both are important tactics, but working ON your business allows you to take the time to set the tone and direction for success and growth.
