Top Tips on How to Train Your Employees

Top Tips on How to Train Your Employees

Setting Your Staff Up For Success

When you are a busy small business owner, it can be tempting to let your new employees hit the ground running. With all of the things you have to worry about in your normal day-to-day operations, you may feel that taking time to formally train your new hire would be the best use of your time. Failing to do so, however, could create a struggle with employee retention. To help business owners build—and keep—their best staff, here are some employee training tips.

  • Hire Smart: The training process is going to be much more effective and go much quicker if you hire people who are self-starters. When you have someone who is driven to learn, training them becomes more of a guidance than hand-holding process, freeing up more of your time even as you pour into your new hire.
  • Tap Your Team: Fortunately, you do not have to be the sole person offering guidance to the newest member of your team. Ask your other employees to get involved. Having your new hire shadow the staff member in the role closest to theirs can be a great way to use everyone’s time and resources, for example.
  • Use Tools: Training can start to feel tedious after a few days of repeatedly saying “Do this.” To get more creative and more effective with your training, utilize online resources and the power of your own position. Positive feedback from you can help encourage productive behaviors in your newest employee.

How to Manage Your Email Inbox

 “How to Manage Your Email Inbox” is locked How to Manage Your Email Inbox

Stop Getting Backlogged With Emails

Email has transformed business, and the majority of us are grateful. Gone are the days of problematic fax machines or the need to drive across town—or fly across the country—to get a contract executed. Email has made communication easier.

The problem for many of us, though, is that our sheer email volume makes it difficult to keep up, leaving us with overflowing inboxes. Here are a few tips to help you get yours under control.

  • Commit: Since your inbox is already backlogged, it will take some time to get it back to 0. Set aside a day to do just that. It will be time consuming, but once you have your inbox cleared out entirely you will be able to stay organized moving forward.
  • Unsubscribe: Look, you barely got to that email from your manager yesterday. There is no way you are going to have time to look over that newsletter of recipes or health tips. Unsubscribe from all of your non-work related emails and save yourself the trouble of having to navigate those unimportant emails.
  • File: If you walked into an office without a filing system, you would be appalled. Why, then, do we think it is okay to leave our inboxes unorganized. Implement a filing system in your inbox to help you prioritize the most pressing matters while keeping others where they will not be forgotten.
  • Archive: To prevent inbox backlog, archive all messages that either do not need a response or do not need to stay immediately top of mind for you. You can also relocate archived emails by searching if you need them, and this system will help you keep your inbox clutter-free.

Managing your inbox is just one step on the road to success. To get the full roadmap, contact Mike Stromsoe’s Unstoppable Profit Producer Program. Our premier wealth creation program helps you work less, earn more, and enjoy life!

Having a Higher Standard Will Only Improve You

The most successful people in the world, personally and professionally, seem always to be striving to reach the next level! You can too!

Focus always seems to be on the destination, meaning that you have to study your goals each and every day. By checking your goals every day, you force your brain to think of different ways to achieve that purpose. Jim Rohn said, “There’s no telling what you can do when you get inspired by [your goals]. There’s no telling what you can do when you believe in them. There’s no telling what will happen when you act upon them.” You can help you improve yourself by having higher standards in life and always pushing yourself.

Winston Churchill famously said, “The war was not won with the plan, it was won with the planning.” Most stellar results, whether in business or in life, are 90 percent preparation and 10 percent execution. When you are in the middle of pursuing your goals, you’ll face tough times and opposition. You’re going to want to quit because once you quit it’ll be the end of your problems and you can get back to watching TV. Well, no one has ever succeeded by simply watching TV! If you don’t suffer during the process, you will not reach the end goal – and success.

A Greek sculptor in 500 B.C. was once hired to create the statues for the very front of a building in Athens. The sculptor went off to carve the marble and took longer than the city fathers would have liked. The reason was that he made sure the backs of the statues were as beautiful as their fronts. When told that no one would ever see the backs and asked why he had done this, he replied simply with, “The Gods can see it, and I know it’s there.”

In the end, building or creating something has less to do with your end product and more to do with the integrity of your input. Don’t stop pushing yourself to be better, and your life will be filled with the great results!

Use This Tried-And-True Formula For Success

This formula will help your business realize success this year.

All business owners want to be successful. After all, when you thought about starting your business, being broke, working long hours, and watching your business fail were not on your list of to-dos.

How, exactly, do you succeed? While plenty of people will give you a complicated answer, we say it doesn’t have to be such a headache! To help your business achieve its full potential, follow this straightforward three-step formula for success.

  • Do Your Homework: New business owners think they’ll learn about the market as they go, while seasoned ones think they already know it all. You’re both wrong. All industries change and grow, and technology is making those shifts happen faster than ever before. Take the time to take a step back and research your industry. Who are the top players? Who’s changing the game? Where are customers’ needs not being met?
  • Discover Your In: Once you have the facts, you’ll be able to lay them all out to figure out where your business has a channel to success. Maybe all of your competitors are doing something you’re not, and you need to start. Maybe no one’s doing something customers are calling for, and you can. Look for any opportunities your business has in front of it.
  • Make A Plan Of Attack: So you know the background and what you want to do. Don’t just plunge ahead blindly! Instead, take the time to create a detailed, organized, logical action plan. If you’re going to change your business, it’s in your and your team’s best interest to be prepared before you do.

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! At Mike Stromsoe’s Unstoppable Profit Producer Program, we help you produce a wealth creation program that will provide revolutionary results. To learn to rise above the competition and achieve success, join us at the “Leave No Regrets” boot camp in San Diego, CA.

Tips For Learning Skills Faster

Pick Up Skills More Quickly With This Guide

Do you ever feel like you have a hard time keeping up in today’s business world? As we move further into the technology age, things are changing faster than ever before. To succeed, you need to stay on the cutting edge (or at least not too far behind it). How do you do that with limited time, though?

To help you learn new skills faster so you can succeed in the modern business world, use these tips.

  • Give Yourself Tools: Sure, the free class might be cost-effective, but it likely is not the most effective. Get yourself the best equipment and resources your budget will allow. Oftentimes, the tools make all the difference.
  • Go Digital: Just because you do not have time to drive to your colleagues office who already has this skill does not mean you two cannot connect. Use videoconferencing to get immediate access to people who can help you learn this new skill even if they are not in the same location as you.
  • Let Pride Go: Learning a new skill is challenging and can even be a little scary. Kiss your ego goodbye and let yourself make a mess as you learn this new skill. By worrying about how you look, you will hold yourself back and slow yourself down.
  • Go Deep: You are not going to pick up very much if you do 10 minutes a day for four weeks. You may, however, be able to take those 280 minutes and use them for an immersive session that will help you learn. Expose yourself to the new skill as deeply and frequently as possible to learn faster.

Now that you have these tips, you can learn more quickly but what, exactly, should you learn?

Should Your Business Create A Mobile App?

The Business Benefits Of A Mobile App

In our digital age, people are seldom found without their smartphones. In fact, around half of web page visits are coming from mobile devices! That means you should either fine-tune your webpage for mobile visits or consider creating a mobile app. Here are a few ways having a mobile app for your business could offer you a boost.

  • Marketing: If you design an app that encourages its users to activate push notifications, you create another channel for you to put promotional opportunities, helpful information, and other marketing tactics at your customers’ fingertips. Simply having your icon on their phone helps you stay top-of-mind for your customers, and showing potential customers that you have a mobile app shows that your business is advancing with the modern age.
  • Networking: Not only does your mobile app create an opportunity for you to connect with your customers, it also enables your customers to connect with one another. If you offer a social networking forum within your app, you can create an entire network into which you can invite prospective customers.
  • Service: If your customer downloads your app, it means he or she is very interested in your business. With an app, you not only keep him or her interested but you also have a platform upon which you can build a relationship. Offer your customers specials and resources over your app, and you make great service only a click away.

If you would like to talk to an expert about whether or not you should create a mobile app for your business, contact Mike Stromsoe’s Unstoppable Profit Producer Program. We are here to come alongside you and your business and help you realize success in our modern era. Plus, we will offer you our premier wealth creation program that can help you work less, earn more, and enjoy life!
