My Top 3 Recommended Reality TV Shows to Help Your Business
By far my favorite show to watch. Markus Lemonis does an amazing job of presenting visuals to explain his thoughts and philosophies. Each episode provides insight to some interesting ways of approaching and qualifying opportunities.After watching his first episode, I became addicted. I watched them over and over again while taking notes on my computer. Sounds a bit crazy right? But, this is something I enjoying doing at it really stimulates my creativity.
It’s important to really watch the shows. That means put the phones down and pay attention as you may have to use your creativity to absorb something you adapt for your business.
Marcus is really big on People. And I totally agree. Happy employees create great results and loyalty. But, great employees can be created with simple incentives. Sometimes it’s as simple as giving them a voice and allowing them to contribute their ideas. And in some cases, amazing employees should be rewarded with a piece of the business.
Although primarily concerned with providing a space to show works of visual art, art galleries are sometimes used to host other artistic activities, such as performance arts, music concerts, or poetry readings.
Happy employees create the best results. As a business owner, you have to be able to be open to others providing ideas to improve your business. And from the show, I have learned that the hardest thing to do is accept change.
It’s easier said than done. We have worked for years developing our Social Caddie brand (we love our little golf character). But, we have to be open to changing it if it meant providing a better service and increasing our profits.
Having the most efficient processes is crucial to maintaining and growing your business. Not having the right processes from the start can set up your business for failure. There are a few episodes where having too much business created a problem due to not having the right processes to fulfill the demand.
And as a business owner, it’s important to understand and respect the flow of the process. Allowing people to own their space within the business creates a more productive atmosphere which is another key for success.
Sometimes we get so caught up on our products and services that we have a hard time looking at it from a consumers point of view. Marcus shows how sometimes simple packaging or logo design can completely change the value of the end product.
One of the things Marcus has started doing which I really like is collaboration within his network of companies. He brings them together to help maximize each others strengths.
The Best Black Coffee Shop
Coffee is a brewed drink prepared from roasted coffee beans, which are the seeds of berries from the Coffea plant. The genus Coffea is native to tropical Africa, Madagascar, and the Comoros, Mauritius and Réunion in the Indian Ocean.
The traditional method of planting coffee is to place 20 seeds in each hole at the beginning of the rainy season. This method loses about 50% of the seeds’ potential, as about half fail to sprout.
The robusta strain was first collected in 1890 from the Lomani River, a tributary of the Congo River, and was conveyed from Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of Congo) to Brussels to Java around 1900.
Instead, integrated pest management has developed, using techniques such as targeted treatment of pest outbreaks, and managing crop environment away from conditions favouring pests. Branches infested with scale are often cut and left on the ground, which promotes scale parasites to not only attack the scale on the fallen branches but in the plant as well.
