Keeping the fun in
the fundamentals of business
A pro sports coach and his team just lost the game. They’re headed off the field. And somebody walks up to him, with a mic in hand, and asks, “Coach, this is a tough loss. Where do you go from here?” If you’ve watched sports on TV long enough, you’ve heard this kind of answer over and over, “Well, I can say it’s one thing. We really need to get back to the fundamentals.” And in most cases, he’s right. Right? Same is true for the fundamentals of business.
Sports are a great way to watch others who’ve mastered their skills. And sports analogies make great illustrations for running a business. After all, they’re alike in a lot of ways. Athletes have to develop and master skills. Business owners have to do that, too. Athletes have to see and reach their goals in order to score. Business owners have to reach goals, too. Because achieved goals can lead to profits and prosperity.
But what if you haven’t mastered the fundamentals of business?
A quarterback can throw an interception that can lead to losing the whole game. Baseball pitchers have lost their jobs just because they couldn’t pitch enough strikes. And sometimes businesses suffer and fail because the owner did down the basics.
But athletes have a distinct advantage over business owners. From an early age, they’re taught the fundamentals of the game by their parents, or friends, and eventually coaches. But who taught you the fundamentals of running a successful, sustainable business as you were growing up? And I’m talking about a successful, sustainable business you can enjoy running for years. Maybe even a lifetime. A business that doesn’t run you into the ground from sheer exhaustion. It’s sort of like the athlete who stops having fun playing the game they always loved.
I hope none of that describes you and your business.
Because there ARE coaches and tools to help keep you at the top of your game. And the right system will help you master the fundamentals of business. As it just so happens, I know of a system like that. It’s online, with a proven coaching method and all-inclusive, automated contact and marketing system. And it’ll help you and your business stay off the “injured list.”
