The Plan For Success System

Running Multitudes Of Businesses – A Challenge For Sure




Yes, running several businesses all at the same time on top of starting off multiple different projects is definitely a challenge. Spreading yourself thin over many projects all at once is definitely something that can make a lot of things, a lot of your projects, a lot of your dreams go nowhere. However, that being said, you can actually make it happen. It’s not necessarily easy, but with the right focus, tools and people it can be done.

I love to do a multitudes of things. Not just in my areas of interests and hobbies, but also in business. I like a lot of shiny objects that present themselves to me – so to speak. The challenge is of course how to master the in-all-places interests and actually achieve the results you hope and strive for.

One of the best ways to tackle this and your ambition for running multitudes of things all at the same time is to utilize people or teams and tools. The people factor is what you would come to expect hiring the right people for the various jobs at hand. The right people can make it possible for you to achieve the right results. It’s an obvious part of the equation you might expect me to suggest. Finding and getting that perfect right team is a different matter altogether. Not always very easy. Not always without some struggles, set backs and frustration – not to mention pain. Further details on people, hiring people and managing people I will leave for a future discussion. But going back to the other part of the equation leaves tools.

One of the very important tools for running your business – and even more so, running several businesses – is your P&L statement, reviewed on a regular basis, and your budget.

Yet, I’m often astounded by just how many business owners and entrepreneurs I meet on regular basis from all over who seem so unaccustomed to actually placing much effort and attention to this. If you wish to have a lifestyle that will afford you the income gained from running a business (or several) you need to utilize these tools. A budget will show you the viability of your business. Of course your budget can be completely off, but I do not see why it would be extremely off unless you didn’t do your budgeting work decently to begin with. A monthly review of your P&L statement (your profits & loss statement) will tell you if you are on track, lacking or perhaps hopefully ahead. It can also let you know if you need to do some adjustments to the way the business is run (or the way in which your team is running your business).

If you know your numbers well, then you can to a greater extend actually step away from the business and have others take care of most of the operations for you. Why? Well, because if you know your numbers well and you review your business numbers on at least a monthly basis, then you can very quickly access whether you are heading for the results you are striving for. If you are not you should relatively quickly be able to see where in the equation things go wrong and thus find out where it is that you need to address your team’s attention towards.

 

The Plan For Success System

I’m in the midst of finalizing a small program on this exactly topic.

The Plan For Success System

The program was born out of a chapter that I wrote for a great book-collaboration I was invited to do with one of my own mentors, Mr. Brian Tracy. You must know Brian Tracy. If you don’t, you are really missing out. I highly suggest you get acquainted with his material (there is a lot!). The book-collaboration resulted in the book called The Only Business Book You’ll Ever Need. It became an instant best seller on Amazon when it was released earlier this year. Among the other co-authors you find Robert G. Allen, with whom I have also worked and Masterminded and who has a long string of best selling books behind him and who has sold over a billion dollars worth of information products. Yes, that’s a billion with a b. Leigh Steinberg, who is the real life character of Jerry Macguire, portrayed by Tom Cruise in the the film of same name, also contributed to this book. I have had the great fortune of meeting Leigh on a few occasions and he has many lessons to share from his world. My friend Larry “The Connector” Benet is also part of the book collaboration along with a few other very remarkable people that I’m quite happy to be associated with and whose names you may know (or should get to know). In other words, the book is filled with insights from a lot of great people who have achieved much and who have made a remarkable life.

I expect the special program that looks a little further in depth of this particular aspect of running a business to be released within a week, so be sure to keep a look out for it. In fact, may I suggest that you sign up for my newsletter, so I can advice you on its release and/or progression?

Book Cover for Upcoming Book Collaboration With Legendary Marketer Dan Kennedy Revealed






As I celebrate the recently released book collaboration I was part of and the fact that it reached not just 1 best seller list but actually 7 best seller lists, I’m also excited to publish and reveal to you the cover of an upcoming book collaboration with legendary Dan Kennedy. Now if you are not into marketing you may not know Dan Kennedy, but trust me, the guy is a real legend in marketing circles and many of the current top marketeers are citing him and hailing him for skills they have picked up from him.

 

Marketing Miracles Cover Mikkel Pitzner

I personally never really thought I would be spending much of my time on marketing, but I have come to realize that we are actually all marketing all the time. Don’t think so? Well, if you have a spouse or a partner then likely you are marketing pretty much all the time. You may not be thinking you are, but I bet you really are! Think about it for a moment and I’m sure you can see what I mean.

The same goes for all other sorts of relations, such as when you hang out with friends, colleagues and naturally customers and clients.

I don’t indicate that it is all bad or that we are all operating with hidden agendas to rule the world or something, but we are usually always trying to please someone, get along, obtain something (perhaps permission to do something) or getting to some desired outcome. So we are talking in a certain way, listening in a certain way and acting in a certain way. In other words we are “selling” our case all the time and as such are marketing all the time.

I’m not going to explain what I mean right now, I hope you have an idea what I’m getting at. If you don’t, then let me know I shall pull myself together and expand a bit of the topic.

Anyway, I was invited to be part of this book collaboration and naturally jumped at the chance to be collaborating with a true legend, such as Dan Kennedy. The book is bound for release in near future and the cover has already been set up as pictured. The book cover does certainly not follow my usually chosen or favored color palette, but I actually like the unusual expression and in no uncertain terms hints of marketing ploy to gain attention (it kinda reminds me of what could have been a box of washing powder or similar product).

Another reason I enjoyed being part of this book collaboration was the fact that I have actually over the years been very engaged in marketing for numerous companies, companies that I have employed with, owned or consulted for or indeed still do such interactions with or for on an ongoing basis. In fact I have over the years tried and tested so many marketing facets, some with some success and others with dreadfully lacking results. I have some insights that I have gained from my personal experience and from experiences of highly skilled marketers, so I thought why not share some of those insights.

 

The book is to be released in the fall (which in other words is sometime soon – don’t know the actual release date yet). My contribution to the book is titled The Power of a Price. The chapter discusses certain elements of choosing the right price for your product and also gives insights to certain unusual strategies that can propel your results dramatically. If you wish to have a copy of my contribution to the book collaboration, then of course I encourage you to buy the book once it is released – more than likely certain really cool bonuses will be given away for free for buyers of the book on it’s release day, so it may be even more valuable to get it, but remember such give aways will only be available on release date. Keep an eye on my blog and website and I shall update further on the release date. You can also revisit my site later to see if I set up a free access to the chapter (I might just do that, but not before the book is released) or send me an email.

She wondered; why on earth not?
