98. Trying to be Nordstrom While Talking Value Like Walmart

I don’t know many service providers pursuing customers who predominantly make buying decisions based on price. In fact, every service provider I know explicitly says they prefer not to attract those customers. They want to be the Nordstrom of their industry. Offer premium service, and collect premium dollars. And I get that. And yet, their messaging to their employees is about providing value to the customers. Nordstrom doesn’t talk value. Walmart does. Walmart customers do make their decisions largely on price. Today, we will talk about that disconnect. Learn more about Brian's training and ..read more

One of the great ironies for business owners is that we all think or feel “What is really holding me back is unique to me.” We say or think things like – nobody could understand what I’m going through.

Becoming comfortable with the fact that others have had the same obstacles, and successfully overcame them, is often helpful in giving us the confidence to get past our own hang-ups so we can make real progress. In this 3-part series, I’m going to share with you the most common fears I see holding people back, so you won’t feel like yo ..read more

I don’t think I know of a single business owner who hasn’t said these words: “I don’t know what happened. We fixed the problem, and then a few months later, it’s like we didn’t fix anything. And we were dealing with the same thing all over again.

Most of these short videos are about 2-4 minutes ..read more
