    Business Showers

    Business Showers

    Kevin saw that Elon Musk threw it out there that in addition to having baby showers, we should also have business showers. If you have a friend or former colleague or someone in your life starting a business, you should celebrate them and give them referrals, business help, business books, and other stuff that will ensure they start off successfully. Think about supporting your friends. Business is very important and starting your own is a struggle; those people would certainly appreciate some encouragement and support.

    Lovable Fool or Competent Jerk?

    Lovable Fool or Competent Jerk?

    Many years ago, Erik read an article in Harvard Business Review that he still thinks about nearly 10 years ago. The gist of the article was which do you want to work for: a lovable fool or the competent jerk? The lovable fool is great to be around, you like them, they’re a friend but they don’t do good work. On the other hand, you have the competent jerk: someone who’s expert status at their job but they’re awful to be around. It’s a tough situation but most people would prefer to be around the lovable fool. Why? Life is short. Who wants to spend it being miserable?

    But the thing is, if you have too many fools in your company, you may have a great time but you’re not getting the work done efficiently. You need a blend of people that you want to be around but are also competent. These are people you’re going to spend a lot of time with every day so hire around your core values and skill set.

    Royally Screwing Up My First LinkedIn Live

    Royally Screwing Up My First LinkedIn Live

    Erik recently recorded a great episode and his microphone ended up being muted. He went live on all his social media platforms and the whole time people were trying to tell him that they couldn’t hear him. But of course, he wasn’t checking the comments because he was focusing on what he was saying.

    This podcast is all about telling you about our journey, our entire journey, the good, the bad, the ugly. Well this was the ugly. Erik was engaging with his audience and yet, in actuality, he really wasn’t because he was not even listening and reading their comments that told him his mic was muted.

    Accountability Mirror

    Accountability Mirror

    Erik recently listened to an audiobook called You Can’t Hurt Me. Throughout the author’s journey, he used a concept called the accountability mirror where he would look in the mirror and the only person he was accountable to was himself. He reminded himself of the promises he made to himself and it was his way of keeping himself truthful to his goals.

    If you want to be an entrepreneur, everything that you need to accomplish is within your power as long as you hold yourself accountable. Bet on the man or woman in the mirror.

    Minimum Commitments

    Minimum Commitments

    Here at Array Digital we have minimum commitment for our client agreements. Our agreements are legally binding contracts but we like to call them agreements because we think it sounds less harsh. Our minimum commitment is 12 months. Sometimes a client will ask for a shorter commitment term. We will consider it, depending on the size of the deal, the scope of work we will do for them, and the size of their company. When we can't get 12 months we ask for a 9 month commitment. If that's still too much we will go down to 6 months, but no less. We want to be in it for the long haul, and we want to ensure we have enough time to produce the results they’re looking for.

    If you can’t pay one month, you can’t pay two

    If you can’t pay one month, you can’t pay two

    In this episode Kevin recalls something his father recently reminded him of. He talked with Kevin about the very first home he rented with Kevin's mom when they were newlyweds. It was his grandmother's house and it cost him $50 a month. Even though he was renting from Grandma she was a force to be reckoned with. It didn't matter if you were family, rent was due in full and on time.

    One thing grandma told Kevin's dad back then was, “If you can’t pay one month, you can’t pay two”. Meaning if he couldn't pay rent on time that month what made him think he would be able to pay double the following month? It was a lesson that Kevin's dad learned early on and passed on to Kevin when he was young.

    In business, when clients have a hard time paying their invoices for one, two, and three months, it is likely those problems will continue and they will compound. It’s usually a good idea to recognize when that happens to work something out with the client before it becomes a bigger problem.
