8 Unprofessional Work Habits to Stop Today

Keep your business habits professional.

Unprofessional habits are seen during day-to-day operations by colleagues, superiors, and even clients. While you may not realize that you have some bad habits to break, it’s worth reflecting to notice if you need a refreshed mindset.

Today, evaluate if you have any of these habits and find ways to move them out of your work routine.

  • Complaining: Even in the most perfect conditions, there are those pessimistic people who find fault in everything. While it’s fine to share feelings, excessive complaining can quickly become annoying.
  • Flirting: Knowing the boundaries is must, especially in the workplace. Flirting, especially with the aim of career advancement, will look sleazy and could even compromise your career.
  • Procrastinating: Not getting work done and interrupting others at work can appear lazy to everyone in the office.
  • Yes-Man: When working as a team, you can’t please everyone. A professional will know when to say no respectfully and suitably.
  • Lateness: A person who is continually late to work will seem to not take work seriously or respectfully.
  • Inappropriate Dress: While modern companies allow a more casual dress code, the quickest way to lose respect is to turn up in pajama-looking clothes.
  • Gossiping: Some people get satisfaction from causing arguments and conflicts with office gossip. This is not appropriate for work.

California’s Updated Paid Sick Leave Law

Your business’s update on the new paid sick leave laws in California.

The California paid sick leave law, named the Healthy Workplace, Healthy Families Act, took effect July 1, 2015. It’s designed to promote a healthy workplace, reduce employee turnover, and increase productivity in the workforce.

Update your business by knowing the ins-and-outs of the new law:

What is it and who is it for?
Any employee who works in California for 30 or more days within a year is entitled to paid sick leave. Employees, including part time and temporary employees, accrue at least one hour of paid leave for every 30 hours worked.

What are employee eligibility requirements for using paid sick leave?
The employee may use accrued paid sick leave beginning the 90th day of employment. They are not required to find a replacement as a condition of using paid sick leave. Sick leave includes the employee’s own or family member’s diagnosis, care or treatment.

If a sick leave or paid time off policy was already in place…?
As long as the employer has a paid leave policy or paid time off policy that meets the law’s leave time requirements, the employer is not required to provide any additional leave.

What are the consequences of noncompliance?
If a company does not comply with the new law they can face Labor Commissioner enforcement measures, including penalty fines.

How can a company enforce compliance?
Display posters on the sick leave policy for your staff, provide written notice to current employees and new hires, show how many hours of sick leave an employee has available on a document or pay stub, and provide the accrued time when requested for the eligible employee.

Keep your company in line with the laws and find out new ways to enjoy life, work less, but boost business. Visit Mike Stromsoe’s Unstoppable Profit Producer Program and attend “Leave No Regrets” boot camp in San Diego, CA for a complete package of ways to improve your business.

Keep Customers Loyal with These 7 Tips

Find and keep new customers happy with care, consistency, and creativity.

Customers are what makes your business successful, thrive, and grow. To obtain a loyal group of clients that will keep coming back for more services, be sure to follow these tips:

  • Maintain High Standards
    Setting standards and expectations are imperative when creating a business reputation. When the employees know what goals they must meet, the company will run much smoother. If the employee fails, or is unaware the necessity to reach these expectations, the customer will notice. Be sure to stay consistent in order to receive steady, repeat customers!
  • Know Your Strengths
    Be sure to communicate to the guest why the company is great, and why they should continue their business with you. There is a fine line between being modest, and bragging, so be sure to know the difference!
  • Get Regular Feedback
    Most successful companies communicate with their guests to ensure that the opinions, experiences (both negative and positive), and expectations are noted and taken into account. Customers love to be heard, and as they are your bread and butter, be sure to listen to them!
  • Gather Data 
    From surveys, polls, and collected statistics, you can note data, track it, and determine if your company is satisfying employee, customer, and potential guests’ needs.
  • Stay Ahead
    Whether you join Facebook or look into getting a smartphone app, be sure to keep up with the latest technology, newest demand, and most effective ways to advertise. Social media is a productive way to promote the business, gather new clients, and communicate with existing customers.
  • Make It Affordable and Valuable
    Running a business means catering to one of the quickest growing consumers: Millennials. For them, you will have to make sure that they feel like they’re getting a lot for the price, while maintaining a substantial profit for your company.

5 Myths About Starting a Business

Get a head start on driving your business to success by not following these myths.

When starting a business, know the myths to focus your energy on building and supporting your company. Due to improper planning, wrong moves, and believing myths, many entrepreneurs are not thriving like they should be.

Myth No. 1: You must know everything about business
Be sure to know that a successful business solves problems. This means that they make mistakes! Knowledge from books along with experience creates the perfect combination to understand the industry.

Myth No. 2: You need to wait until the right time to start
Starting a business is never going to be the right time. Even though many people can advise you to postpone, as long as you have passionate cofounders, the right resources, and are willing to work hard, now is the right time to start!

Myth No. 3: You need a lot of money to get started
It is possible to start a business with little or no capital in many ways. A crowd-funding experience attracts a global audience, as well as potential clients. Sell services instead of products to get started!

Myth No. 4: You need to spend money to make money
Many entrepreneurs have turned their ideas into profitable business without relying on a large marketing budget. You can have a successful marketing campaign by knowing your brand extremely well and talking to the right people!

Myth No. 5: You have to promise nothing but deliver much
To set the bar low right at the start may not be proactive for the business. Instead, give the customers the very best products and services right from the get go. This will keep customers returning once they recognize the quality and overall experience.

Be sure to recognize the myths so that you can lift your business up to it’s potential!
