I attend a presentation this week on LinkedIn; the presenter is a member of the Business Mentor Team I belong to. I don’t often brag about my peers, but Lisa Raymond is not only one of the most knowledgeable people I have ever met in the field of Successfully Incorporating Social Media into your Business but also in making the process understandable.
She was able to make the presentation easy to understand for those members that did not have a lot of expertise in this field and at the same time challenge those that thought they knew all the answers.
For those of you that have attended my presentations, you know that I my goal is to offer “Immediately Applicable Business Education”. That means that after you participate in the session you can go back to your own business and immediately apply the information you received; Lisa accomplished that in her awesome presentation.
My daughter bought a roll of plastic food wrap at a discount store; she was very proud of her purchase telling us that she got it for less than half the price of a major brand. To make a long story short, her purchase did not work; the plastic food wrap tore as it came out of the box and did not seal the food. A lesson learned! It only costs a little more to go with the best! The same holds true when you buy business support. Your business is your future; it has to feed your family, pay all expenses and, hopefully, allow money to be put aside for your retirement. This is not the place to buy a service based on price instead of proven performance.
If a small business thinks small, it will remain small. If it does not invest in quality products and services, it will suffer the consequences. Risk strategy is an important part of managing a growth business, and, in my experience, paying more for a good product or service is worth the extra expense. This type of action may minimize the overall risk. If we don’t take risks, it’s doubtful that we will ever get to our dream.
Don’t say no till you know what you’re saying no to. Change is the only constant in our lives thus new products and services are constantly being offered to the business owner. Fear of spending money on an unknown product or service often results in a “NO” answer before the product or service is fully understood.
If you believe like I do that social media is here to stay and should be an integral part of your business process, then call Lisa and visit with her about her services. She can be reached at: email@example.com or by phone at 602-423-2106.
