Personal Development Plan Of An Entrepreneur

Personal Development Plan Of An Entrepreneur

A human is created with everything it needs to survive the first 9 months of its life in the womb. Then parents take over and begin the teaching process of the tribe that the small human is born into. During this process, somehow all humans learn the fundamentals of bodily function – walking, moving, talking, grooming.

In other words, your personal development plan happened by default, without you having to think about it or do anything.

Later in life, however, you were exposed to all kinds of conflicting and contrasting influences from your friends, family and authority figures, such as school teachers and religious leaders. Your pure, unrestricted, unlimited mind was closed off with concepts of limitation, lack, and restriction. No wonder so many people are confused and lost out there.

Corporate Governance and Small Businesses

Corporate Governance and Small Businesses

Let’s start with some review of what types of companies primarily drive the US economy.   We know that there are about 16,000 publicly traded companies represented on the NASDAQ, NYSE and the AMEX.  The key economic driver in the US is the 27 million small businesses.  The Small Business Administration 2008 Presidential Report on The Small Business Economy clearly communicated “the economy generated 1.1 million net new jobs in 2007. In the first quarter of 2007, 74 percent of the net new jobs were in small firms with fewer than 500 employees and 22 percent were in firms with fewer than 20 employees.”   Yet, the gross amount of attention in the media and the federal bureaucracy is around what is happening in the Markets.  This is understandable with the volumes of dollars transitioning in this public environment. The economic recovery program is not addressing the core of the economy, small businesses.   More than ever the public market environment is being questioned about corporate governance.  The new legislation being considered for public companies has sections that may very well trickle down and require the small businesses to adhere to similar if not exact rules on Corporate Governance.

1. Build a Good Online Presence

For what may seem like an obvious necessity for most, some companies still don’t value the importance of a good website.

If the potential client can glance at your page and get all the important information needed, you are that much closer to reeling them in.

Negative Effects of E-Commerce

E-commerce can be a great way for a small businesses to increase their sales and widen their reach. It’s also convenient for consumers, who can buy at their convenience, without having to leave their homes or spend the day fighting queues at the shopping mall to pick up the best deals. However, e-commerce also has negative effects on both consumers and retailers that must be kept in mind before launching an online shop.

Privacy

It is easy to collect a lot of personal information from a consumer using an e-commerce website, sometimes too easy. Since all online transactions are recorded, it’s relatively easy to create an online profile of the buyer, and use that to send targeted advertisements.

Top 7 Reasons New Insurance Agents Fail to Reach Success

Top 7 Reasons New Insurance Agents Fail to Reach Success

I would like to offer some insights as to why I believe such a high percentage of Insurance Agents fail in their first couple years in the insurance business.

There can be multiple reasons that contribute to a new insurance agents failure. Here are the most common reasons I have found that lead to failure.

  • Most Insurance Agents have a Limited product portfolio and are unable to cross sell other insurance products.
  • Agents don’t have a proven sales track or sales system to follow which most new insurance agents need to get results quickly.
  • They don’t create consistent cash flow from insurance sales quick enough and must leave the insurance business to go back to an hourly paying job just to survive.
  • New Insurance Agents start out in the insurance business with little or no reserves to fall back on. Most businesses require some upfront capital or reserves to get started.
  • A lot of agents do not get enough training (Product or Sales) to give them a fair chance of making it in the insurance business.
  • Insurance Agents are not taught effective prospecting and marketing techniques that generate a consistent flow of sales prospects.
  • Some people simply don’t have the drive, work habits, persistence, self motivation or ability to handle rejection that it’s takes to survive in an insurance sales career.

From my experience of hiring and training insurance agents over the past 23 years, I have found the following items need to be present in order to maximize a new agent’s chances for success long term in the insurance industry.
