Breaking up is NOT hard to do.

Breaking up is NOT hard to do.

Neal Sedaka crooned famously that ‘Breaking up is hard to do’ in one of his all time hit singles. But this needn’t be the case when dissolving a business partnership. Many businesses are established as a partnership between two or more individuals, many times friends and business colleagues. All too often this partnership is not formed with enough forethought and planning on how to form this business partnership. What then happens is that the […]

Mid Week Thoughts

Mid Week Thoughts

It’s mid week. In fact it’s mid day at mid week. Time for a re-charge. Ever get a sense that there is a ‘summit’ or ‘peak’ to your week?  Do you ever get stuck with the mindset that you are looking forward to the end of the week rather than the excitement that you have a lot more time available to you than you had previously thought? I for one am recharged and ready […]

Don’t Drop the Baton During Your Business Exit

Don't Drop the Baton During Your Business Exit

The 2012 London Olympics will be beginning soon and with it will come one of the more exciting sporting events to watch. The relay race. Now visualize that relay race. Place yourself and the next generation of ownership on the track where you think the ‘baton’ transfer should start and where it should end. Will you continue to run forward alongside the new baton holder (the next owner or the next generation of ownership) […]

Don’t Drop the Baton

The Fine Print can get you stuck

The Fine Print can get you stuck

Ever get stuck with a charge to your credit card because you didn’t read the fine print? I often wonder how much ecommerce, how many dollars are taken out of our pockets each year because certain companies ‘hide’ charges in the fine print of their online or print ads. I would venture to guess that the amount is in the billions of dollars of essentially false ecommerce. This happened to me recently when I […]

The Paradox of Choice – Leads to getting Stuck.

The Paradox of Choice - Leads to getting Stuck.

By definition the concept of choice leads to a paradox. It leads to getting stuck. I don’t know about you, but I find this happening to me over and over again in our information overloaded society. Take my experience from the past couple of days. As I continue to research, write and prepare my Don’t Get Stuck in Your Business modules and podcasts, I take advantage of the wealth of information available on line. […]

Am I Too Busy? Am I stuck in the “Busy Trap”?

Am I Too Busy? Am I stuck in the "Busy Trap"?

I often ask myself when I’m feeling stuck if I’m just too busy. Is this busyness even necessary or worthwhile? Probably not. It’s part of what I call the “Ryan’s Steakhouse” syndrome. What I mean is that our eyes get too big and we stuff our plates with way too much too do. The simple truth is that I know I feel better about myself and am much more productive when I am less […]
