What did your mama tell you about money?

My mama told me that it takes a lot of hard work and time to make money and that you should save it so that you will have a ton of security. And then....if you are lucky enough to make enough, you can buy really nice things with it. But only if and when you can truly afford it.

The way that translated into my life was to work very hard and share everything!

That may not be your belief. I have heard many business owners talk about their money beliefs.
That is why I created this next video about understanding your beliefs about money and if they are helping or hurting you and your business.

I'd Rather Poke My Eye Out Than Read My Financial Statements

Move into a more practical side of moving the needle in your business. But it will take some bravery. Do you really understand the numbers of your business? It is ok if you don't. That just
means it is time to learn. And if you think you've got a handle on those numbers, get ready to position yourself to teach others. This is the next step to creating a more prosperous, transparent company.

Teach the Numbers

I've been pressing upon you the need to NOT be a manager and to be a leader. But in order to be transparent and create a business that works without you, I'm going to ask you to take on the role of a mentor and a teacher.

In this video, I will discuss how to teach the numbers in your business now that you understand them yourself. This is not a rhetorical exercise. This is a clear and proven path to being free of the daily task management in your business. Check it out.

Do You Know Everything About Your Business?

What you notice and what employees notice in your business can be completely different things. However, a typical business practice is for management to chose a few relevant financial and industry indicators, and build goals around them. This is a good practice.

But to create a transparent, open-book company, everyone contributes and understands how they can impact the results. I've created a perfect example for you in this video

Let the Games Begin

Business development games were "invented" by Jack Stack at the Great Game of Business.

While lots of us are on the streets teaching business to employees by playing games, Jack perfected the art. Here are some games I've seen played:

How Do You Pay People?

If you worry that you can't pay people enough money, that once you give a raise you can never go back, or that commissions are undoing your team spirit, think about tying compensation to the
profitability of your business in the form of a profit share and watch people have an impact.
