If your business is not exactly what you hoped it might be, maybe you need to grab a millennial and ask them to evaluate everything you do. Sounds crazy, I know. But we often fail fastest when we forget to innovate. Change is hard, but it’s also a certainty. Stop thinking you’ve learned all you can learn, stop believing your way is the best way, and open your mind to new thinking. Find a millennial and ask them for help. Thank me later.
Going back to school is one of those events that seems to shift us and derail us from focus. People are focused on other things, they stop calling, they miss meetings, and we often follow the trend. To help avoid, we can do a variety of things, like make lists. We chat about this in today’s Radio Ignite podcast.
I recently was asked to donate to my kids’ school. Instead of buying a gift card, I started a gofundme fundraiser. After hitting our goal of $1k in a couple of hours, I shared the idea with our principal. Naturally, she loved it but of course, she asked me to slow down so the foundation could check their rule books. I don’t like rules, but I also don’t like to break them. Sometimes though, you just have to do now and never apologize. I raised over $1300 for my kids’ school thanks to some amazing people, friends, family and even people I’ve never met. It was the traditional method, but it worked and it was legal, ethical and everyone wins. So I just did it and I did fast. They can figure out how to deal with the money when they get it. I’m sure they will!
