    Making Money Is Killing Your Business (Part 7)

    Making Money Is Killing Your Business (Part 7)

    Chuck Blakeman is back with us for part 7 of our new series covering different elements and tools from his first book, Making Money is Killing Your Business (MMIKYB). Today we are talking about what does it mean to have a mature business? One of the fundamental mistakes we make is to measure our business against itself instead of what it provides to us as business owners.
    A business is mature if: 
    1. The business owner is no longer the only producer. They may produce, but it's a choice. 
    and 2. The business makes money when the owner is somewhere else. Meaning, the business is producing time and money.
    A mature business always has two attributes: time and money.

    Making Money Is Killing Your Business (Part 6)

    Chuck Blakeman is back with us for part 6 of our new series covering different elements and tools from his first book, Making Money is Killing Your Business (MMIKYB). Today we are going more in depth about dual tracking. The Tyranny of the Urgent and the Priority of the Important both have to be dual tracked if you're ever going to get off of the treadmill. Dual Tracking says, "how do I use one activity to make money today, while I'm also using that activity to set me up to have a business that makes money down the road?"

    Making Money Is Killing Your Business (Part 5)

    Chuck Blakeman is back with us for part 5 of our new series covering different elements and tools from his first book, Making Money is Killing Your Business (MMIKYB). Today we are going more in depth about the tyranny of the urgent and the priority of the important. This is what we see as the biggest reason people don't get involved or don't take time out to really focus on what needs to happen. We are talking with Chuck today about the reasons why.

    Making Money Is Killing Your Business (Part 4)

    Chuck Blakeman is back with us for part 4 of our new series covering different elements and tools from his first book, Making Money is Killing Your Business (MMIKYB). Today we are talking about being ambitiously lazy by dual tracking. If you're an income producer, you are working hard - you're simply ambitious. But if you are a business owner and you're building a business that makes money instead of you trying to make money, then you're going to be ambitiously lazy. What we mean by that is you work really hard upfront, because you intend to not work so hard going forward; to build a business that will free you to do something else when you want to, even if it's starting another business. Listen in for more from Chuck!

Great show, great guests!

Just listened to the episode with Brian Swilling. Loved the insight he brought to the topic, getting people into the right mindset and helping dentist work through their own personal overindulgence.
