Wunderbar! (Wonderful!) That’s how my time has been in Germany, where I was honored to be the keynote speaker at the German Franchise Association Convention’s Business Community Event. It’s times like these when I know that values are universal. The things we hold near and dear to our company culture back home are alive and well in places far and wide. As I welcomed attendees in Berlin, I was encouraged to see so many smiling faces in the crowd. Franchising continues to have a strong attraction as a business model in Europe, and for those wanting to know our foundation for success across Dwyer Groups brands, I was happy to oblige. In particular, I discussed how we “Lebe R.I.C.H.” (Live R.I.C.H.) at Dwyer Group following our Code of Values and the themes of Respect, Integrity, Customer focus, and Having fun in the process. Economics are universal, small business reigns supreme, and franchising has a growing audience in the U.S. and abroad. What I gained in return at the meeting in Germany was monumental. Not only can business leaders identify with the key ingredients it takes to succeed in franchising, but they also look to operate with integrity. That’s one of the key reasons…

“You miss 100 of the shots you don’t take” – Wayne Gretzky. We’ve all heard this well-known saying. But maybe there should be a revision to this quote. The new quote would read “You miss 100 shots you don’t take. But you could also lose some of the shots you do take if you don’t know what you’re doing.” So what to do? Warren Buffet has become a household name over time. As a highly successful investor, author and philanthropist, Buffett has also become the second-wealthiest person in America. He didn’t do this by taking every opportunity that ever crossed his path, however, or “taking every shot.” Quite the contrary, he only took shots he knew he’d make. In the short video below, Buffett offers his best advice: You don’t need to be an expert at a million things, or have an opinion on everything. You need to decide what are the few things you do want to be an expert on, and shoot for those. Millionaires aren’t made from seizing every opportunity they have, they are made by investing their efforts heavily on 3-5 things, and making those their entire focus. Watch the video below for the full Buffett wisdom!…
Over one billion people are on it. While its future is still uncertain, it is already impacting most businesses, transforming journalism, and raising broad societal issues in its wake. But its most valuable lesson is being largely overlooked. If companies would step back and look at its history, it underscores three strategic insights that could transform a business. I’m talking, of course, of Facebook’s video service, Facebook Live. Facebook Live allows users to share live video streams and host them for future viewing … of weddings, talking head rants, and (unfortunately) crimes. The latter use has garnered the most press and forced the company to hire an army of video police to take down inappropriate clips. But I think the most insightful lesson from the service emerges by looking at how it came to be. Facebook was worried. Engagement was waning among a critical demographic, young urban kids. They were looking for ways to win them over again. Facebook experiments, constantly. One service they were experimenting with was video. They had offered a limited test of a beta video service and were meeting to review the results. CEO Mark Zuckerberg was there, and as the team reviewed the findings, it…
Firing’s never an easy task, and rarely feels great from either end. When it comes to executives, however, it’s a whole other ballgame. Ben Horowitz is founder of Andreessen Horowitz and author of The Hard Thing About Hard Things. He specializes in advice on how to build and run a startup. In the video below, Horowitz approaches the hard challenge of firing an executive. The most important realization? Realizing it was most likely your fault for hiring the wrong person. At the executive level, he says, you aren’t going to find a worker who isn’t competent, diligent or hardworking. If the person is the wrong fit, you didn’t hire the right person for the job you were seeking to fill. Therefore, it’s extra critical to hire and screen thoroughly to begin with.

Some companies have so many requests coming in that they spend all of their time responding to them. This is crazy! Do you respond to every email you receive? Every call you get? After all, it’s a request, not a demand. So why the frenzy over responding and replying so quickly? You won’t believe some of the reasons! Here are the Top 10 Reasons Why Salespeople Respond to RFP, RFQ and RFIs
In this short clip below, Salim addresses how this huge shift came about so quickly that many companies and leaders are struggling not only to catch up, but be ready for tomorrow. He calls this disparity a “cognitive gap.” Young leaders today are creating and producing ideas at a rate that far surpasses the mindset of older generations. This accounts for problems such as the world-ride financial crisis.
