TMBA 642: Breaking Through Plateaus, And Other Important ‘P’s

Podcast 45:18 | Download | Spotify| Stitcher | iTunes | Comment

This week Dan and Ian share updates about progress at ‘Dynamite Jobs’. Drawing on some sage advice from recent guest Ayman Al-Abdullah, they’ve been focussing on the ‘P’s that really matter, namely breaking through plateaus by building strong foundations through ‘product, promotion, and process’. The idea is that this will enable them to move on to the next stage in their business, from ‘player to coach’:

“One of the points that Ayman made is, ‘Look, you are the last star player, you’re ever going to get on a rookie contract’,  everyone else is going to work less hard than you, is going to care less, and is going to demand more money”…  So when you’re ready to pick up the clipboard, you have to have a rock solid legacy in place in terms of product, promotion, process and people … And now all of a sudden, we’re not jumping the gun. I want to flag this up because I see a lot of people trying to get to that mid eight figure seven figure business by jumping the gun on bringing in the executives that are kind of doomed to failure, because there’s no clarity on how the business will grow”.

And stay tuned to the end to hear Dan and Ian’s thoughts about resume gaps and ways to fill them.
