Alan states that he has been accused of teaching rudimentary business practices, his question is always the same. ” are you doing those basic, rudimentary business practices?” He points out that it is better to keep it simple and effective to get it done rather than to create something complicated that you are not going to do.
The lessons and rewards of giving
A big part of how Allen has built his business by giving to others. He reminds us to give for the sake of doing good things, not to get. When you engage with people from a place of giving and supporting you will find your business is rewarded. It is very important to connect with the community, stick to your commitments even if you don’t see rewards immediately.
What lessons can we bring moving forward
As we move through this time of change in our world we are quickly learning to embrace new technology as well. Alan speaks of his mother who is now comfortable doing video calls with the entire family. Alan states how important it is to take a look at how we have been doing business. It is obvious that for everyone, our incomes will be lower this year than last. It is imperative for us to look at how we can do things differently that will fit in this new economy. You will want to look at what opportunities have raised because we have had this slowdown. Things are going to continue to change for the immediate future. Take a look at how to position your business for when things do settle down.
