Mike Agugliaro discusses 5 decisions you need to make before summer to prepare for the boom, as well as maximize your overall service, efficiency, and profit.
Key Lessons Learned:
- Be prepared to lose a few employees to the “wolves”. Plan ahead and make sure you will have the people you need when the time comes.
- Never stop marketing. You can dial it back but you want to always have your message advertised.
- Make sure your marketing today is talking about the mindset of the future. Don’t talk about how hot it is now, talk about how hot it's going to be.
- People will only provide the level of service they have been given or seen. It’s up to you to show them what service should and could be like.
- Prepare to maximize on your profit with strategies for efficiency.
- Prepare for possible price increases by stocking up or negotiating with your supplier ahead of time.
- Use the “top 100” technique to make sure the top 100 items your business uses are being bought at a competitive price.
- Make sure your summer plan is a springboard into the rest of the year. Not just a temporary win.
- The way you do anything is the way you AND your team do everything.
- No matter whatever or wherever you want to be in life, find someone who has done it successfully and learn from their habits.
- Don’t expect different results by repeating the same actions.
- Thinking positive alone won’t accomplish anything. Positive action will.
- Any need or inefficiency in your business stems from something you need to be doing differently.
- Reverse engineer your goals. If you can do that, you just have to follow the steps to get where you want to be.
- When reading a book, get enough information and insight to take action on it and then put the book down. You don’t become a better leader by reading a whole book, you become a better leader by implementing what you have learned.
