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!!

Many might not know this,but I was not born with two ears…just one. Why am I telling you this? Because being born with one ear profoundly changed the way I view the world and everything around me. As a kid growing up on the island (Long Island, that is) in New York, I had to undergo multiple hospital stays to rebuild my right ear so it could look like a real ear.

The surgeries started when I was 6 years young all the way till I was 23. There were 7 or 8 in all, although I lose count (not something I care to remember). At times I felt like I was Frankenstein, cut up and stitched in all different places! They call it plastic surgery but I can assure you there was no plastic used rebuilding my right ear.

Most times I shared my hospital room with 3 other kids and each and every time I made a new friend. I learned quickly that having one ear wasn’t bad at all! Most of my hospital friends where quadriplegics, Cancer patients or kids with cleft pallets. This truly prepared me for a life with my new right ear. I guess you can say my one ear prepared me for two, and my two ears prepared me for a life of listening to others.

I have found in my lifetime many people will hear you, but not listen to you. Most people are so busy that they may pretend to listen to you when in actuality, they let all the other noise around them drown out what they should be hearing as they’re listening!

Every business that I have been a part of has been built on the foundation of really understanding where the other person is coming from. The Wealth Building Annex is no exception – our mastermind process is all about listening twice as much as you talk!

Lesson: Listen to the words people use when they are talking and formulate your answer only after you have processed what you have heard!

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

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!
