The value & importance of building networks & support groups for Entrepreneurs and Top Notch Professionals.

#Networking #SMB #CRM

Breakthrough success in any endeavor requires the conscious cooperation of smart and talented people.

When you start a new idea, you ask โ€œHow can I get started?โ€

Top notch performers ask โ€œ Who are the best people to help me make this idea launch successfully?โ€ #SMB
As Innovators & Game Changers, eliminate the mindset of:

โ€œOwning 100% of nothingโ€

๐Ÿ’กCollaborations, Joint Ventures, & Partnerships are the fastest approach to growth, scalability, & getting wins on the board๐Ÿ’ก

#SMB #Startupgrind
Rapid growth requires sharing your ideas around thinkers who are hungry to grow and ready to implement.

Hiding and protecting your precious ideas amongst your peers is an outdated strategy.

How you execute is what matters. #SMB #SmallBiz
Speakers/Authors/Bloggers: You need to form creative think tanks in which you bounce ideas and validate each otherโ€™s work.

This can be achieved via video chat or get together for a weekend and hammer out content and new ideas for your platforms. #SMB
Building your business, idea, or platform in isolation takes longer & you will surely run into unforeseen failures that wouldโ€™ve been identified through the perspective and experience of others #SMB #smallbiz #CRM
Everyday should be spent in conversations with a minimum of 5 people about your ideas and/or delivering value and resources to others.
Where do you find 5 people?
๐Ÿ‘‰๐ŸพFacebook Messenger
๐Ÿ‘‰๐ŸพDownload @weareshapr
๐Ÿ‘‰๐ŸพYour exisiting peers
The secret to longevity in business and being at the peak of your industry is connection to others.

If you want to connect to a Innovator who you donโ€™t know, leverage introductions from mutual friends. The world is a lot smaller than you may realize. #SMB
My biggest epiphany of the last 6 months was realizing how small the world really is.

If you leverage your network and collaborate daily, you can get introduced to anyone on Earth ๐Ÿ’กif you are introduced by the right mutual friend of that person๐Ÿ’ก#smb

Did you know that over 80% of businesses are undercharging for their services?

Here's why you need to raise your rates:


#Sales #smallbiz
Raising Your Rates is a Sign of Professionalism:

If you pay rent, your property management company raises rent each year.
The cost of access to gas, electric, and other utilities also rises each year.

Your rates must rise to support cost of living expenses.
Raising Your Rates Signals High Value or Quality

Low pricing immediately raises suspicion.

Premium rates signify quality, prestige, and luxury for business services.

One of the most fascinating parts of this game that I love is
watching the young thinkers build business using new rules and tools that didn't exist when I was rising through the ranks.

Here's a few things that Young Entrepreneurs have taught me:

Time is an illusion.

Older entrenpreneurs (and professionals) pride themselves on "time served". Years of experience, degrees, 20 years in this industry.

Younger entrepreneurs can build a 6 figure business in 6 months by focusing on learning high income skills
Building a presence online is a requirement.

I used to pride myself on having "roots and high credibility in the real world" and delayed investing heavily into online biz.

**The world is online** and if you adapt to this instead of fighting it, you will succeed much faster.
