Developing Alliances And Value With Cooperation In Business

forming alliances and business cooperationHaving worked in the construction industry in the past, I understand the value of alliances and business cooperation. Even though I worked as a sub-contractor to the main developing contractor as an electrician, it’s vital to coordinate and program the work together as a team. Of course, the main contractor sets out the schedule, but communication is paramount to keep everything running smoothly with a successful outcome.

If one thing goes “out of kilter” it can create real problems for the project and is generally unnecessary in my experience. It may be as crazy as one “ego” against another, which is against all the principles which I was encouraged to work in. Business cooperation and building alliances between trade company representatives who work on any project, from the smallest to the largest, is key. “Getting on” with your work mates, no matter what trade they are in, is the obvious way forward for anyone. The value to the customer also improves because of the way the job has come together and completed efficiently.

What You Learn Today, Take Action On Today!

Take Action todayThere is no time like the present is there? If you’re learning new skills in your business to help you progress, it’s vital that you take action today on what you learn. This enables you to find out more about what you have learned by experience. Too many times people have committed to learning new skills, but keep waiting for the time they’re more familiar with the task before they actually DO anything. How can this work? You really need to know what works NOW, not after 3 weeks of learning. Test what you learn by taking action on the things you have learned.

Taking action right away will help you know you’re doing things correctly, or whether you need to look at the procedure again. There may be times when you need to readdress or “tweak” things to suit your own particular style. Either way, Continue reading

Is It Possible To Care TOO Much?

Why is you care so muchI don’t know how long this post will be. I usually plan and look at everything first and then let the words flow after. This subject came to me after reading a letter and if it’s short, the message will be, I hope, a strong one. If it flows, then it will be hopefully even better!

I have always tried to listen to people and help with whatever I can. I have had people tell me I care TOO much. Moreso when it comes to business. I know the value of what I know and yet I still want to give more than I take.

Thing is, I look at the “professional” career people like lawyers, doctors and the like and ask Continue reading

How Do You Define Desperation And How Can It Affect Your Business?

Desperation is the feeling that you have when you are in such a bad situation that you will try anything to change it.” ~ Collins English Dictionary

How do you define desperationThis is just one way to look at desperation and define it in the clearest way possible for all of us to understand and relate to it. Why is there so much “desperation” in the world and how can we turn away from it and look towards INSPIRATION instead?

Being desperate in your life and business is in itself a negative reaction to what is around you. Of course we are ALL looking to progress, make money and have a better life for our family and ourselves too. We all WANT that Continue reading
