Now what?

Apple gives you 14 days to pickup at the store. Note the additional information about Black Friday and Cyber Monday weekend (11.29-12.02). Managing expectations for what is predicable.

Now what?

Saw it coming but hoped i was wrong.

So then, now what?

Price goes up.

Is that fair?

Technically, yes.

Will you hold your ground or be flexible?

Herein lies the challenge.

Expectations are formed by our actions, not by what we say.

If i say there’s a deadline but don’t enforce it, then there really wasn’t a deadline.

This lack of honoring one expectation contaminates all expectations.

What shouldn’t be a tough call might be, meaning the tough call to raise the price to the December 25th deadline price.

Why?

Anyone paying a premium expects flexibility. As in, “cut me a break, man”.

And then there’s the notion that all of this was an exercise in negotiating a bigger picture – contract(s) signed by year end, which is four weeks away.

Do not choke

Imagine what a 30-year Disney Operations insider knows about creativity and innovation. Priceless? Depends what you need to fix and improve.

World-class is highly desirable.

Of course, it is also expensive.

Investing time, money, and resources.

(It’s also expensive in lost opportunity costs, turnover, cultural weakness, ineffective leadership).

Not many naturally see world-class cultural architecture as an investment.

Some do.

Guess who they are.

The crazy ones. The misfits. The outliers. The ones who know there is no other choice.

So please do not choke when i give you the quote.

Less busy-ness, more present-ness

Disney Meetings
Couple nights ago at Disney’s Flagship Resort for Disney Resorts world-wide.

Continuously working to reduce the administrative work i’ve been accustomed to do as a solo entrepreneur.

Why?

There are people who are pros at things i will never be a pro at.

There are things i do that i’m a pro at and no one but me can deliver that thing.

The goal is to generate creative and fulfilling employment opportunities for others while reducing my workload to only the things i excel at.

The net outcome is to increase more discretionary time to simply be present.

Sweet words to an entrepreneur

Grammarly contract
It’s easy to spend $140 with one click.

 

Sweet words to an entrepreneur.

Contract has been executed.

Just one week before 2016 closes and this payment allows 2016 to see more revenue than 2015.

A post like this would have been lost on me if i had not become a small business owner.
