Identify a market segment that is not being served or served well and focus there. Do not market a brand like the big companies instead shoot a video with the founder and explain why you started the business... to solve a problem the big guys i... Read more

I was speaking at an event on customer service and I asked how many of them conducted surveys? Most of the hands went up. I told them I had just stayed at a very nice hotel and there was a survey in my room and I read it.

The survey was a typical very dissatisfied, satisfied, very satisfied type of scoring. A question the survey asked; "Was my room clean?" I thought to myself since I expected the... Read more

Almost every small business makes the same mistake...they try to be a smaller version of a bigger company in this case Starbucks. A big company will out market, out sell, out finance you so what do you do? Change the game.

What problem are you trying to solve? Is it that you will guarantee that when a client selects one of your coaches or business consultants they will get the results they are after? This is difficult because there are lots of variables.

Let's approach this differently. My clients are not buying my coaching or consulting...they are buying me. They want to know my story, my failures, my successes... Read more

What you are facing is not uncommon. In building a business there are stages it will go through. When you get past the early struggles as your company has it goes through fun. It is about revenue generation-it is give the customer what they want- processes do not matter-signing up customers is the name of the game.

Then the company gets into whitewater and the fun stage has ended. What happens n... Read more

I have seen HR report to the CEO or the CFO. As I read your statement it appears the question is not where HR will report but how to deal with training, high turnover, morale and as you comment culture.

Testimonials

Rich was hired by our organization as a consultant with a focus on our Marketing Department. Within our first meeting I knew the wealth of knowledge and experience I had with Rich. A natural leader, Rich stepped right in and helped implement key metrics that really got our team facing in the right direction. With his 'Out of the Box' ideas, Rich really helped us re- brand our companies and create a industry changing program that will be launching soon! With everything Rich brings to the table I would undoubtedly recommend him for any consulting needs. He has made me a better leader, manager, and overall person and I value the relationship that we now have.
