What’s the biggest mistake you’ve made over the past year, or year and a half? I was in a room with entrepreneurs who generate over $1 billion in annual revenue and that question was one of the most important when it came to learning how to take your business to the next level. Join me as I share the answer to this question and the stories behind them.
Severance packages are the cost of poor leadership
Never take your foot off the pedal on a prospect
Be careful of who you are hiring
Just one person can affect the culture of a company and not always in a good way
How you personally lead will make or break the success of your team and over the business
The opportunity costs due to lack of action
Make sure you have deep conversations with the people you want to promote as sometimes they are already in the right position for them
Always be recruiting. Ensure you have the team members to handle the opportunities as they arise
When it comes to launching, ensure you have the framework fully developed before doing so
Keep your eye on the marketplace
Balance your priorities
Have a cyber plan and cyber insurance program
Hire great people, give them authority and get out of their way
Until next time, get out there and make a difference, be unstoppable, and leave no regrets!
We are so quick to say in our businesses that we are here to “serve our customers,” but at the end of the day, we are also all in business because we need to earn money.
One of my favorite quotes from Earl Nightingale’s inspirational book, The Strangest Secret, is, “The only people who make money work in the mint. The rest of us have to earn it.”
We all have to earn the money; it’s what we do with that money after we earn it that defines our level of financial security and, ultimately, the amount of freedom we enjoy in our lives and in our businesses.
As a business owner you MUST keep your finger on the pulse at all times. Thanks to Internet and mobile banking, our financial picture is at our fingertips 24/7/365. The more often you manage your financials, the more you strive to understand exactly what every line on the balance sheet means and the better you will become at handling your money and making every dollar count.
Once you have mastered this step, you will have a clear view of your financial picture, allowing you to reach as high as you want to reach in your agency business. You will be in control of your financial future and you will have more freedom to live life on your terms.
After all we just want you to make your MONEY…
Now go out and make a difference, be unstoppable and leave no regrets!
Today I’m discussing something that I find to be one of the most important systems in ANY business, including insurance agency businesses – Client Segmentation.
In the 1800’s a gentleman by the name of Pareto came up with a principle called the 80/20 rule. What it means is that in many cases 80 percent of your revenue is generated by the top 20 percent of your existing clients. I have been in business for a long time, and I have done the math time and time again and have found that this principle is pretty accurate.
So, does your team know who your top clients are?
Are you on the phone with them often?
Do you they get preferential treatment when they call in?
…or is your team spending all of their time on the bottom 20 percent of your clients that are always complaining about something and constantly have problems paying their bills on time?
If so, then it is time to put our Client Segmentation system in place. I warn you – this is NOT an easy task. It takes a lot of time and effort, preferably done by someone that is highly detail oriented and talented enough to understand the mindset and to go through your entire book of business.
