MM&I Header

February 20, 2012 - Do you have an idea but do not know where to take it or if it is even worth pursuing? Is it related to what you are doing in your work now or totally different? Is it something you have thought before, but now are seeing it as more tangible to explore? Never discount your ideas simply because you are uncertain where to begin.


 Take an MM&I Moment to write down the idea and what you think needs to happen next to see if its viable, unique, doable, or plausible? Is it getting more information on a subject related to the idea? Is it polling others about what they think of the idea? Is it simply doing some research to see if anyone else has come up with the same idea? Can you involve someone else to take some of these steps so it is not overwhelming you with everything else you have on your plate? Simply beginning to explore the potential on one idea could very well lead to a discovery or even solution to something else in which you are seeking answers, so allow yourself the opportunity and see where it may lead.

 Savvy Secret Tip of the Week

Are you overlooking a valuable people resource for your business? For the past 15 years in my business, I have leveraged for-credit internship programs to bring great value and progress to special projects and initiatives in my business, while also bringing real-world experience and insight to college students. Entrepreneurs not tapping into this business support resource are missing out on a low-cost, high-return way of getting things done. This is such an under-used resource that I have made it a topic of a two-part series in my Savvy Business Owner column in Business Today. CLICK HERE to read Part I. Want to understand how to leverage all of your resources more effectively in your business?  Then Secret # 4, Budgeting for Growth, is a must-read in 50 Marketing Secrets OR Chapter 13 in Me, Myself & Inc. (entitled: It Takes Money to Make Money, Unless You Don't Have It) will give you great options to consider as well. To order one or both books, CLICK HERE!


MAKE A WISH COME TRUE! As announced last week, for the entire month of February, GreenCastle Publishing will donate $5 per book purchase to the Make A Wish Foundation in partnership with Send Out Cards (mentioned in Secret #18, The Personal Touch). If you buy both the Me, Myself & Inc. and 50 Marketing Secrets books, $10 will be donated.
