Welcome to Wise Men Wednesday, your weekly dose of Christian wisdom to thrive at home and in your business.
Posts I recently published:
How to be a Dream Manager:
”You need to be a dream manager for your team. Your employees look up to you and each day you are given a fantastic opportunity to lead them by example. By doing so you will develop future leaders and are guaranteed to improved business results.”
In case you want to check out my prior work the full catalog of posts is here.
Words of wisdom:
1,000 True Fans:
An oldie, but a goodie. This concept will apply if you are building a brand or launching a new product. We glorify brands that have massive million strong audiences, but all we really need for success is 1,000 true fans.
”A true fan is defined as a fan that will buy anything you produce. These diehard fans will drive 200 miles to see you sing; they will buy the hardback and paperback and audible versions of your book; they will purchase your next figurine sight unseen; they will pay for the “best-of” DVD version of your free youtube channel; they will come to your chef’s table once a month. If you have roughly a thousand of true fans like this (also known as super fans), you can make a living — if you are content to make a living but not a fortune.”
”A thousand customers is a whole lot more feasible to aim for than a million fans. Millions of paying fans is not a realistic goal to shoot for, especially when you are starting out. But a thousand fans is doable. You might even be able to remember a thousand names. If you added one new true fan per day, it’d only take a few years to gain a thousand.”
