Have you ever gone somewhere that you frequent, a restaurant, amusement park, club, coffee shop, etc; somewhere you have β€œregular” place you sit or thing you do as you arrive and when you get there something has changed and your “usual” pattern is interrupted?

Your first reaction is probably β€œwhat the hell is going on here!” You showed up with one expectation and when you got there you were unwillingly exposed to something new. Now, are you the type of person who embraces change, or are you the pain in the ass nobody likes to deal with because the world has stopped revolving around you for a moment?

With the understanding that there are generational gaps in communication, it is important that we attempt to bridge these gaps with questions and understanding. Stubbornness and being set in our ways in no excuse, especially in this day in age where every day the world is changing in hundreds of millions of ways.

Embracing change and accepting that there is no stopping it is one of the most powerful characteristics we can adopt.

When we can open up to allowing optimism and gratitude to be the attitude we have about technological change and even differences in business management styles we can truly engage in the exponential growth many are experiencing in their business today.

What is an example of something you have experienced where your pattern was interrupted? How did it make you feel?

Which compensation plan is more profitable for a business to implement?

A good friend and mentor of mine, Mark Katz, participated the TEDx Palmacia event recently and in this video he gives an unique insight that will really make you think about what really is most effective for a business to utilize in order to create long lasting success.

This was one of the most thought provoking presentation I have seen in a while. It was really cool to see the video go over the last month. If you are not familiar with TEDx it is without a doubt an amazing organization to pay some attention to.

Hope this got you thinking. If you know of any businesses that you think would see some value in creating an implementation program or would like a compensation evaluation let me know and I can pass the info onto Mark.

Have an awesome day!!

It has been a little to long since the last post, but I think this video makes up for it! πŸ™‚

Check out “The Johnny Carson Method.” For years Johnny Carson lit up late night TV, but what most people don’t look at is how he treated his show like a business. Supply and Demand, relationship building, the whole nine.

Let me know what you think!

Special thanks to my partners at TWBA, and Brian White for his awesome video skills!
