    How to Sell by Standing Out - Featuring Spencer Ward

    How to Sell by Standing Out - Featuring Spencer Ward

    Sales is the lifeblood of a company. How much easier is it if you have a differentiator that makes you stand out from the crowd? That helps you to offer more value to your customers.
    With sales being the life of the company, it’s not the end all solution. What if you don’t know your labor costs or supply costs and you're bidding out and selling jobs with the wrong margins? It’s like having a hole in your boat and adding more sales to the equation is just making the hole bigger! This is where knowing your numbers is so important.
    Technology is amazing right now! If you aren’t taking advantage of what’s out there you are going to be behind. Let’s talk about all of this today and how we can take our businesses to the next level!

    Continuing to Learn and Maintaining Consistency - Featuring Camille Gilbert

    Continuing to Learn and Maintaining Consistency - Featuring Camille Gilbert

    Camille has been in the crepe-making business for over 12 years now.  Many people think owning a food truck is just showing up, bringing some ingredients, and flipping on the light, and BOOM!  Here comes the money!
     
    What they don’t know is that understanding your income statement and providing a consistent product is most of the battle.
     
    This is the difference between companies that come and stay and companies that come and go.  It’s the “boring” information that you need to know day-in and day-out to be successful, and obviously you have to make an amazing crepe as well! ;)
     
    Check out this episode, as host Spencer Ward learns Camille’s full story.

    The Importance of 90 Day Employee Reviews - Featuring Spencer Ward

    The Importance of 90 Day Employee Reviews - Featuring Spencer Ward

    If you are constantly trying to improve your team or business but you’re still feeling like there is something missing or disconnected, try conducting regular employee reviews. 
    These are great opportunities to meet with your teams to hear what they are dealing with and possibly what you’re not seeing from your perspective.
    It’s a game changer and a great way to streamline your processes and systems. Not to mention you get to meet some hidden rockstars on your team that you can start building off of.

    How to Make Sure You’re Making Money - Featuring Spencer Ward

    How to Make Sure You’re Making Money - Featuring Spencer Ward

    If you were like me years ago, you went by the word of your bookkeeper and CPA as to whether you were making money month in and month out, and not really looking at the books yourself.  It’s time to stop that foolishness and start dedicating a few minutes each month to reviewing your financial statement to check for key indicators.
     
    If you and your bookkeeper haven’t organized your financial statement, AKA P&L statement, check out our previous episodes that tackle that in detail.
     
    For this discussion, host Spencer Ward focuses on understanding personal add backs in the P&L, within the scope of your overall profitability.

    Simple but Game Changing Routines to Implement - Featuring Spencer Ward

    Simple but Game Changing Routines to Implement - Featuring Spencer Ward

    Are you worried that you might be unorganized?  Are you the type of person who checks your business bank account several times a day to know if you can make certain decisions or not?  Do you wonder why you aren’t making the money you expected from your business?
     
    I’m here to tell you that if you do just a couple of things differently every month, you can drastically change the outcome of your business!  You don’t have to wait until the end of each month for your bookkeeper or CPA to tell you whether you made money or not.  It’s time to take the ball and run with it, and this is how you do it!
     
    Spend a few minutes with host Spencer Ward, who tells us how he brought clarity to his own business operations, all in this episode.

    No Bad Teams, Only Bad Leaders - Featuring Spencer Ward

    No Bad Teams, Only Bad Leaders - Featuring Spencer Ward

    If you haven’t picked up the book Extreme Ownership by Jaco Willink & Leif Babin you need to!
    Both of them were Navy Seals with awesome experiences within battle that they relate to business.
    Too many times we think when our teams or companies aren’t performing we need to dissect everything when it could be as easy as replacing a leader. 
    I won’t ruin the story within the podcast I tell from the book about this but tune in and see how this episode and book can change the way you run your team and business!
