Do you suffer from Business Vertigo?
I had the pleasure of hearing Dean Akers speak to our Rising Leaders
group this past Friday and what profound concepts he has about business.
Here are some key take aways from his presentation.
Do you wanna go swimming in the ocean or bike ridining around Tampa Bay?
A majority of people would choose bike riding b/c it appears to be safer.
Fact – 3 people worldwide die of shark attacks each year.
22 people died last year in Hillsborough County due to bicycle accidents
“You can’t change the economy or your competitor.” D. Akers
The real question is…What is your market share? And what deals are you not even at the table for?
Get in on the deals.
“You control your own success.” D. Akers
Other great points from Dean
• Quote price and close your mouth
• Compile a list of top customers you want to have
• Focus Locally – We drive by business all the time
• Know Peoples Zone – Get their attention then engage
