Business Coach Teaches About The Core Principles Of A Successful Business
Business Coach Story Time:
Life before systems was not pleasant for me and I still feel occasional discomfort when I walk into a certain Barnes & Noble. Picture this. The year was 2002, I was 21 years old and I was selling as many deals as I wanted. www.DJConnection.com was the talk of the town in the event entertainment and wedding industries arena and because I personally DJ’d, handled the sales, maintained the equipment, trained the DJs, met with the customers and handled the accounting, things were rocking. I was focused, committed and simply unwilling to compromise. As things grew, I began delegating responsibilities without having the discipline needed to first create systems, checklists, processes, and workflows. I delegated the training of our DJs to a guy who didn’t care about the business like I did and who didn’t have any systems to use as a reference, a standard, a best-practice or a guardrail. Thus, we started destroying people’s weddings one by one for a good three weeks in a row before I started hearing the feedback and immediately began both training the DJs again and creating training systems, checklists and processes.
Unfortunately, I really screwed up the wedding of the lady who managed the Barnes & Noble in Tulsa because I did not properly train the man who was training our DJs. The DJ went to her wedding and played the wrong song for her first dance, forgot to play her requests and changed the agenda for her entire wedding on the fly because he thought it would go better if he did it his way. If you haven’t figured this out by now, I’m an avid reader. But now, every time I would go into that Barnes & Noble, I would try to avoid eye contact with this lady. One time I did have to checkout at her register and I attempted to apologize. Some seven years after the incident occurred, she was still upset about it and gave me yet another piece of her mind and essentially told me that I was a horrible person for ruining her wedding. She said all this while I was at the bookstore being accompanied by my five-year-old daughter. Now nearly 15 years since that incident, I think that she really should have told me “You ruined my wedding because you didn’t have the discipline needed to build systems, file naming systems, checklists, processes, and workflows that were scalable and would have allowed an idiot to run those systems! Go make a system, you jerk!”
“I try to buy stock in businesses that are so wonderful that an idiot can run them because sooner or later, one will.” -Warren Buffett (The self-made billionaire and founder of Berkshire Hathaway.

Business Coach Teaches The Booming Business Foundational Principle #3 – Accounting and Finance
This foundational principle is very important to the success of your business venture because people such as you and I need to exchange currency, money, coin, or Bitcoin for the products and services we both need and want. And at the end of the month if we don’t have any money left, we lose the business game. Game over. The accounting and finance aspect of your business requires an investment of time so you can maintain a proactive perspective and overall approach to the handling of the money end of your business.
