how to build a success business

Doctors | Part Three

Dr. Reid is one of the top neurosurgeons in the country at an amazing hospital and is very focused on bettering his career, but what will he do when the new nurse in pediatrics unknowingly steals his attention from it?

a/n: hey dudes! here’s part 3. hope u like it, I’m actually pretty happy with it (: i didn’t proofread this but u all know by now that i don’t do that anyway. please excuse any inaccuracy as i’m trying my best. gif credit: @toyboxboy

Elle Greenaway had just finished surgery on one of her favorite patients– Mali had gotten a new heart. By some miracle there’d been a donor, and this was a rare moment where it all went smoothly and Mali didn’t wait for nearly as long as they’d all originally thought.

Elle was tired but she’d promised some of her coworkers (and friends) that she’d meet up with them at the bar across the street from the hospital. She exited through the glass doors of the building and crossed the busy street, then entered the bar.

Reid and Morgan were among the friends that Elle was meeting up with, so they were currently walking down the stairs inside the hospital towards it’s front doors.

“So, you meet Y/n? She’s cool,” Morgan said, adjusting his bag on his shoulder. Spencer visibly tensed up at the mention of your name– he wasn’t even sure why.

“Yeah, yeah. She is. But I only talked to her for a minute before she had to go,” he replied. He awkwardly looked away from his friend and at his feet, watching as they took him to the doors.

“She seems like she’s hiding something though. Penelope asked her why she left her old job and she got all tense and weird. You know anything about that?” Morgan asked. He was rambling, but he’d been thinking about it ever since it happened and couldn’t help but to be curious as to why you’d hidden the real reason from them. He knew it wasn’t his business, you’d only just met after all but that didn’t stop him from wondering.

Another successful delivery in the books! Here is a cart I designed and built for a local church looking for a portable piece with storage to display their information. I added some locks, magnetic stops on the doors - and a really gorgeous blacked out top to bring it all together. So happy with how this project turned out.

“Launch” will build your business—fast. Whether you’ve already got a business or you’re itching to start one, this is a recipe for getting more traction.
Think about it—what if you could launch like Apple or the big Hollywood studios? What if your prospects eagerly counted down the days until they could buy your product? What if you could create such powerful positioning in your market that you all -but- eliminated your competition? And you could do all that no matter how humble your business or budget?

Since 1996 Jeff Walker has been creating hugely successful online launches. After bootstrapping his first Internet business from his basement, he quickly developed an underground process for launching new products and businesses with unprecedented success.

But the success-train was just getting started—once he started teaching his formula to other entrepreneurs, the results were simply breathtaking. Tiny, home-based businesses started doing launches that sold tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, and even millions of dollars in sales with their launches.

“Launch” is the treasure map into that world—an almost secret world of digital entrepreneurs who create cash-on-demand paydays with their product launches and business launches.

Whether you have an existing business, or you have a service-based business and want to develop your own products so you can leverage your time and your impact, or you’re still in the planning phase—this is how you start fast. This formula is how you engineer massive success.

Now the question is this—are you going to start slow, and fade away from there? Or are you ready for a launch that will change the future of your business and your life?

How to Build a Client List

Winning new business and keeping it is central to the success of any new venture. The ability to maintain a client list is also vital if you work in a competitive sales environment. Putting an advert in local business and classified listings and hoping will only get you so far. If you’re going to build a solid customer base and grow, you need to aggressively chase market share and make sure you’re doing all you can to keep your clients happy.

Step 1

Prepare two spreadsheets to store the contact details of your clients. Use one to keep the details of customers you’re currently trading with, and the other to record information about clients you’ve dealt with in the past and potential new business. Use a cloud-based spreadsheet service or make more than one copy of your client lists to ensure you don’t lose information if you experience IT problems. Update and review each list religiously as you gain new business or come across possible leads.

Step 2

Create a professional-looking and functional website and a social media presence. No matter how small or large your business, a solid online platform will not only pull in clients searching for the goods or services your company provides, it will also act as an important point of reference for potential customers you contact when touting for new business. If you don’t have the necessary skills yourself, retain the services of a web designer and an SEO copywriter.

Step 3

Put together a brief letter introducing yourself to potential clients. Include a short outline of your work history and previous achievements and a description of the goods or services you’re offering. Create a basic template you can alter for specific individuals or companies.

Step 4

Ask your predecessor for her client list. If you’ve just started a new sales role and the person you’re taking over from is moving on to another industry sector where it’s unlikely she’ll be selling to the same individuals or companies, ask if she wouldn’t mind passing on her contacts. You can do the same if you’ve just bought an existing business. Although you’ll inherit regular trade that’s already on the company’s books when you take over, it will still be worth your while to ask the previous proprietor for any additional leads he may have. Call the contacts you get to introduce yourself and follow up by sending personalized letters.

Step 5

Check local business listings for companies that may require your services. If you’re selling directly to the public, you can buy targeted data from firms that sell consumer contact details. Again, approach potential clients in the first instance by phone and then follow up with a letter. You should also make yourself available to meet potential clients in person. If this is not possible due to your location, liaise by video conference online.

Step 6

Price competitively. Keep a close eye on what your competitors are charging. If your fees are higher than theirs, make sure your clients know they’ll get something extra for the additional money they spend with you.

Step 7

Offer a generous discount for repeat business. One of the best ways of holding onto your clients is by rewarding them for their loyalty. You can also offer additional perks such as regular social events. Running promotions and offering clients commission for sending new business to you is another way you can keep your existing customers happy and drum up new trade.

Step 8

Employ a sales agent. If you find you don’t have the time to chase new business due to the day-to-day demands of running your company, hire a sales professional to help you expand your client list.

Step 9

Retain the services of a public relations agency to promote your firm and buy advertising online and in local media. Run any campaigns you launch with a special offer for new customers.

Step 10

Maintain your service levels. Your clients will only keep trading with you if they’re consistently happy with the service you provide. Treat all repeat business as though you’re dealing with a client for the first time.

The life changing effects of leaving your comfort zone

The comfort zone, as defined by Merriam Webster, is “a place or situation where one feels safe or at ease and without stress”. Our comfort zones often reside in our daily routines, the things we do on autopilot- such as taking a certain route to work each day, or sticking to one form of working out. You may be thinking, ‘What’s the harm in the comfort zone if it’s reliable and easy?’ However, utilizing your ability to leave the comfort zone may be one of the best decisions you make.

From Boniface to Bank Burglar, Or, The Price of Persecution: How a Successful Business Man, Through the Miscarriage of Justice, Became a Notorious Bank Looter by George Miles White, pages 146-149

I headed for the railroad track and, with my eyes and ears open, arrived at the outskirts of Steubenville in the vicinity of one o'clock in the morning of Wednesday, having been tramping and dodging my enemies nearly seventy-two hours. Avoiding the principal streets, I gained the other side of the town, where I took time to decide whether I would go on foot to Pittsburg, sixty-five miles away, or seek out a barn, and, lying low until night, board an east-bound train at Steubenville and make the journey by rail. I chose the latter course and then set out to find a suitable hiding-place, daybreak being fast on my heels before I had accomplished it. The best I could do was a small barn in which there was less than a thousand pounds of hay in a loft about a man’s height above the floor of a cow stable. With my water flask full, but no food to nourish my body, my stomach painfully distressing me for want of it, I burrowed under the hay, and with but a few feet between me and the stable, and no more than four feet of covering above me, I fixed myself as comfortably as I could for the day. All together it bade fair to be a much more acceptable stopping-place than the last one.

9 Ways to build resilience
  1. Cherish social support and interaction. Good relationships with family and friends and others are vital. Being active in the wider community also helps.

  2. Treat life as a learning process. Develop the habit of using challenges as opportunities to acquire or master skills and build achievement.

  3. Avoid making a drama out of a crisis. Stress and change are part of life. How we interpret and respond to events has a big impact of how stressful we find them.

  4. Celebrate your successes. Take time at the end of each day to review what went well and congratulate yourself. This trains the mind to look for success rather than dwelling on negativity and ‘failure’.

  5. Develop realistic life goals for guidance and a sense of purpose. Do something each day to move towards them. Again, small is beautiful; one small step amid the chaos of a busy day will help.

  6. Take positive action. Doing something in the face of adversity brings a sense of control, even if it doesn’t remove the difficulty.

  7. Nurture a positive view of yourself. Developing confidence in your ability to solve problems and trusting your instincts helps to build resiliency.

  8. Keep a realistic perspective. Place challenging or painful events in the broader context of lifelong personal development.

  9. Practice optimism. Nothing is either wholly good or bad. If we allow our thinking to dictate how we view something it will take over. Make your thinking work for your benefit, rather than letting it stymie you with doubt or by seeing only the bad side.

“I mean, no doubt my father’s untimely murder when it happened was very tragic. Very, very tragic. I remember it like it was yesterday. I actually might shed a tear here, you may have to give me a second since it was indeed that tragic. Did I mention how tragic his death was? Because it really was. 

But, you know…these sort of things happen every day! Why dwell on this past when there’s a whole future ahead of me? This future has my name on it - which is a successful business goal I’ve managed to build, all by myself - and there’s no way you can move forward if you keep looking behind you.”

At 86, Jules Feiffer is into his umpteenth career. In the 1940s and ‘50s, he drew comic strips. In 1961, he illustrated his friend Norton Juster’s The Phantom Tollbooth, the first of several children’s books he has worked on. By the ‘70s he had written a couple of novels and a few plays. And he’s now working in a genre that didn’t even exist when he started out – the graphic novel. When asked what it’s like to live a life with so many acts, Feiffer says:

I’ve had endless acts because I ran out of steam on one thing, because life happened on another thing, and I developed a resourcefulness … where I would just look around for some other way to do what I wanted to do. If it happens too fast, you don’t build these, what I used to call these “rejection deltoids,” where you are so used to being hit in the face that you just get up again automatically. The kids who were successful in high school from the beginning didn’t know how to do that. So they would take a couple of slaps and they’d go into their father’s business. … The only part of bodybuilding I’ve ever done is with my hand and pen.

But why him? -Phan- Part 1

Summary: What happens when life doesn’t go the way you planned? How do you face a shattered dream? Give up, or build new ones? When Dan is forced to marry successful business man Phil Lester by his father, he is anything but happy. He’d always dreamed of being swept off his feet by a prince in shining armor, not some boring business man he knew nothing about. Although this is the furthest thing from what Dan wanted. Could this marriage really be a blessing in disguise?

Next
********************************************************************************

Life for Dan Howell isn’t exactly what you’d call fair. Sure he gets to choose simple things like what he’d like to eat, or what he wants to wear. But there are other things which he wishes he could choose, but can’t.

“You know, he’s being forced to marry, right?”

Dan couldn’t help but overhear their conversation. It’s not like it was some little piece of information only a few people knew. Ever was talking about it. Everyone he walked past seemed to stare and whisper. Those same few words constantly being thrown at him. A constant reminder that this was happening and he couldn’t change it.

“Really, to who though?”

“Haven’t you heard? His dad’s forcing him to marry Phil Lester”

Welcome to the Failure Age!

By: Adam Davidson
NY Times, Nov 12, 2014

Industries that once seemed resistant to change are only now entering the early stages of major disruption. A large percentage of the health-care industry, for example, includes the rote work of recording, storing and accessing medical records. But many companies are currently devising ways to digitize our medical documents more efficiently. Many economists believe that peer-to-peer lending, Bitcoin and other financial innovations will soon strike at the core of banking by making it easier to receive loans or seed money outside a traditional institution. Education is facing the threat of computer-based learning posed by Khan Academy, Coursera and other upstart companies. Government is changing, too. India recently introduced a site that allows anybody to see which government workers are showing up for their jobs on time (or at all) and which are shirking. Similarly, Houston recently developed a complex database that helps managers put an end to runaway overtime costs. These changes are still new, in part because so many large businesses benefit from the old system and use their capital to impede innovation. But the changes will inevitably become greater, and the results will be drastic. Those four industries — health care, finance, education and government — represent well more than half of the U.S. economy. The lives of tens of millions of people will change.

Some professions, however, are already demonstrating ways to embrace failure. For example, there’s an uncharacteristic explosion of creativity among accountants. Yes, accountants: Groups like the Thriveal C.P.A. Network and the VeraSage Institute are leading that profession from its roots in near-total risk aversion to something approaching the opposite. Computing may have commoditized much of the industry’s everyday work, but some enterprising accountants are learning how to use some of their biggest assets — the trust of their clients and access to financial data — to provide deep insights into a company’s business. They’re identifying which activities are most profitable, which ones are wasteful and when the former become the latter. Accounting once was entirely backward-looking and, because no one would pay for an audit for fun, dependent on government regulation. It was a cost. Now real-time networked software can make it forward-looking and a source of profit. It’s worth remembering, though, that this process never ends: As soon as accountants discover a new sort of service to provide their customers, some software innovator will be seeking ways to automate it, which means those accountants will work to constantly come up with even newer ideas. The failure loop will continue to close.

Lawyers, too, are trying to transform computers from a threat into a value-adding tool. For centuries the legal profession has made a great deal of money from drawing up contracts or patent applications that inevitably sit in drawers, unexamined. Software can insert boilerplate language more cheaply now. But some computer-minded lawyers have found real value in those cabinets filled with old contracts and patent filings. They use data-sniffing programs and their own legal expertise to cull through millions of patent applications or contracts to build never-before-seen complex models of the business landscape and sell it to their clients.

The manufacturing industry is going through the early stages of its own change. Until quite recently, it cost tens of millions of dollars to build a manufacturing plant. Today, 3-D printing and cloud manufacturing, a process in which entrepreneurs pay relatively little to access other companies’ machines during downtime, have drastically lowered the barrier to entry for new companies. Many imagine this will revitalize the business of making things in America. Successful factories, like accounting firms, need to focus on special new products that no one in Asia has yet figured out how to mass produce. Something similar is happening in agriculture, where commodity grains are tended by computer-run tractors as farming entrepreneurs seek more value in heritage, organic, local and other specialty crops. This has been manifested in the stunning proliferation of apple varieties in our stores over the past couple of years.

Every other major shift in economic order has made an enormous impact on the nature of personal and family life, and this one probably will, too. Rather than undertake one career for our entire working lives, with minimal failure allowed, many of us will be forced to experiment with several careers, frequently changing course as the market demands — and not always succeeding in our new efforts. In the corporate era, most people borrowed their reputations from the large institutions they affiliated themselves with: their employers, perhaps, or their universities. Our own personal reputations will now matter more, and they will be far more self-made. As career trajectories and earnings become increasingly volatile, gender roles will fragment further, and many families will spend some time in which the mother is a primary breadwinner and the father is underemployed and at home with the children. It will be harder to explain what you do for a living to acquaintances. The advice of mentors, whose wisdom is ascribed to a passing age, will mean less and less.

To succeed in the innovation era, says Daron Acemoglu, a prominent M.I.T. economist, we will need, above all, to build a new set of institutions, something like the societal equivalent of those office parks in Sunnyvale, that help us stay flexible in the midst of turbulent lives. We’ll need modern insurance and financial products that encourage us to pursue entrepreneurial ideas or the education needed for a career change. And we’ll need incentives that encourage us to take these risks; we won’t take them if we fear paying the full cost of failure. Acemoglu says we will need a far stronger safety net, because a society that encourages risk will intrinsically be wealthier over all.

History is filled with examples of societal innovation, like the United States Constitution and the eight-hour workday, that have made many people better off. These beneficial changes tend to come, Acemoglu told me, when large swaths of the population rally together to demand them. He says it’s too early to fully understand exactly what sorts of governing innovations we need today, because the new economic system is still emerging and questions about it remain: How many people will be displaced by robots and mobile apps? How many new jobs will be created? We can’t build the right social institutions until we know the precise problem we’re solving. “I don’t think we are quite there yet,” he told me.

Generally, those with power and wealth resist any significant shift in the existing institutions. Robber barons fought many of the changes of the Progressive Era, and Wall Street fought the reforms of the 1930s. Today, the political system seems incapable of wholesale reinvention. But Acemoglu said that could change in an instant if enough people demand it. In 1900, after all, it was impossible to predict the rise of the modern corporation, labor unions, Social Security and other transformative institutions that shifted gains from the wealthy to workers.

We are a strange species, at once risk-averse and thrill-seeking, terrified of failure but eager for new adventure. If we discover ways to share those risks and those rewards, then we could conceivably arrive somewhere better. The pre-modern era was all risk and no reward. The corporate era had modest rewards and minimal risks. If we conquer our fear of failure, we can, just maybe, have both.

10 Things Successful People Do Every Day

Have you ever wanted to be just a little bit more successful? Of course you do! And of course you can be! But as many of us are just struggling to get through the day, sometimes it feels impossible to carve out the space to do even more.

So what do “successful” people do in order to create more success, happiness and a sense of peace in their lives? Research on achievement shows that successful people reach their goals not simply because of who they are, but more often because of what they do. Throughout my research of successful people within society and in my own world, I have found that they all create and form positive habits that propel them to that next level.

Here are 10 things that successful people do:

1. They wake up early.

Research shows successful people tend to wake up earlier to get their day started on the right foot. Early morning is “uninterrupted time” to focus on the things that need to get done. Many successful people have morning routines. Either they work on a business deadline or passion project, they exercise, meditate or journal. Most importantly they get the most important item of the day accomplished within this time.

Why do people on tumblr fucking hate the kardashians so much? Wtf?

And this is coming from a black woman, btw.

I saw this post earlier today on tumblr: http://ic00k13s.tumblr.com/post/126172262420/queenn0mad-when-young-black-girls-actually

And the caption is “when you black girls actually had something to look up to…fuck the kardashians!”

What the entire fuck do the kardashians have ANYTHING to do with this post? Where does the kardashians even tie in with this post? This was a post that was suppose to be uplifting black girls, and not shaming another group of girls. And the fact that is has so many notes, over thousands of notes…for what? I simply don’t get it. The kardashians aren’t bashing black women at all. They’re not saying “I hate all black people” at ALL. (Their make up brands even include make up for women of color, FYI!!) they just have their show, their businesses, and mind their own fucking business. Why is this even targeted toward the kardashians at all?

Also, Brandi is in this post. And while she is a beautiful black women, her brother, ray j, sexually exploited Kim kardashian for his own personal gain. And Brandi thinks it’s KIMS fault for that, and used to slut shame Kim k on the Wendy Williams show a lot. And in other articles , Brandi would slut shame Kim k too. So I don’t even understand why yall are glorifying Brandi when she slut shames other women AND supported her brother ray j when he sexually exploited Kim kardashian.

I’m sorry, but this was a rant that I HAD to get off my chest. I see so many people on tumblr drag people for no reason and it’s stupid.

What’s yall’s thoughts on that post?


I personally think that is bullshit.  You have to have your own thoughts and ideas be an individual.  Let’s talk about how much the Kardashians have done to bring the issues facing interracial relationships to the public eye.  Kim has had horrible things said about her INFANT daughter just because she is a biracial child.  She stood up for herself and spoke out.  Yet there is no media cover on that.  They help so many charities and are always giving despite how busy they are.  But of course no one talks about that.  Kylie and Kendall are young business women making their own money.  Yet people just try to tear them down.  No one uplifts how amazingly independent and successful they are.  I could go on and on.  How can you blame the Kardashians/Jenners for the choices you make in your life?  That’s ridiculous and it’s calling passing the blame for your actions.  If anything people should respect these women for working their asses off and becoming successful business women despite how their fame started.  Half of these females that stay stalking their IGs to leave hateful comments are running around sucking dick and laying on their backs to get two things of the dollar menu at McDonalds.  If anything they should be learning how to be entrepreneurs and confident women.  Women are supposed to build each other up despite color, religion, sexuality, etc. not tear down one group of women to uplift each other.  You can have an opinion without trying to bash other people.   A lot of people need to learn that.
