129 - Income Producing Equipment

When it comes to purchasing equipment for your business, there are two types of equipment purchases you can make. One is income producing equipment and the other is non-income producing equipment. For example, let’s say you need to purchase eight chairs for your reception and you’re deciding between a $150 chair and a $400 chair, which means you will spend $1200 or $3200 to purchase the eight chairs. In addition to this the comfort levels of the chairs are about the same, and at first...

127 - Thank You QANTAS with Dr T.

This episode is all about customer service, acknowledging mistakes when they occur, and using the recovery paradox to build your brand and customer loyalty. One of my previous podcast guests said that consumers today are far wiser and savvier than they use to be because they have technology at their fingertips and they are not afraid to use it. Seeing a friend reading online reviews about a restaurant before deciding where to eat is no longer unusual, in fact, I’d say it’s quite normal, and...

123 - Why Cash Is KING with Dr T.

Today I want to talk about cash, or more specifically cash flow and why cash is king. It doesn’t matter how much money you make, what’s important is how much of it you have available after collecting all payments and paying out all your monthly expenses. Many businesses struggle in their first few years because they’ve gone into their business venture full of enthusiasm and wearing rose coloured glasses, and then quickly run out of money because the money going out exceeds the money coming...

121 - My Advertisers Dropped Me Like A Bad Habit

119 - Business Coaches & Mentors Are Assets Not Liabilities

We’ve all heard the saying that everything is hard until it gets easy, and the reason I bring this up is that I recently joined the gym. It has been a fantastic reminder why people need to have a business coach or mentor if they want to accelerate the success of their business, avoid making mistakes and move from hard to easy much faster. I know firsthand the power of having a business coach and mentor, not just because this is what I do, but because I floundered along in business for a...

116 - I Don't Have TIME To Do Marketing

The reason I like marketing so much is that you know when it works, plus I also enjoy the creative process and steps required to make a marketing plan a reality. But a good marketing plan does take time to develop. Over the past 12 months, I have had to opportunity to speak in front of hundreds of people and after every speaking engagement someone will always ask, "how am I supposed to find time to fit marketing into my already busy schedule”? An Open Mind Finds Solutions That's a really...
