Possibly The Most Secure Most Valuable Business Model On The Planet

Time To Be Great, LLC (TTBG)

Time To Be Great LLC is the  name of our company or TTBG.  The time is now as many businesses operating  in the traditional fashion are not working very well.  Just today a report was published stating that in major metro markets more businesses are closing than opening for the first time ever. On the same day I sent the first draft of our business summary to my partner for review before it is sent to those interested who have  signed an NDA or non disclosure agreement. This article offers the main features of our business as our goal is to attract more who are interested.

TTBG Defined and Our  Foundation Principles 

TTBG is an innovative business development platform that solves the problem of people and companies that have assets with substantial  value and inadequate liquidity (cash)  This uniquely  valuable  business model operates with very few absolutes. The few include:

  • TTBG controls the asset and the deal
  • We only do business with people we know and want to work with or who come highly referred and pass our vetting.
  • Before an asset is assigned to our control, there is a notarized memorandum of understanding that includes the terms and conditions a preferred member in our company first. Once done the asset is assigned and we proceed to the capital raise phase.
  • Sources of funds for our assets already assigned to TTBG or to be controlled in the future are highly  secured by our assets and by the shares of the  preferred members assigning the assets to our company. There is another additional benefit:  a person participating in the funding that is liquidity for our assets is also a preferred member. They in essence have preferred stock. All are  defined with a notarized memorandum of understanding prior to the funding.  The value of that funding  position is determined by the value of our company  which already  is increasing rapidly and the time the funds are deployed.  There is 100% vesting in 4 years with an incremental calculation monthly.  Founding members are already experiencing a growth rate far in excess of 100% on an annual basis.
  • We honor all referrals for assets and funding with a lucrative appreciation fee of 5%. Consistent with our core value of all active with our business we ask that a minimum of $5,000 of referral fees earned be retained in the company as a preferred member. This is not a requirement except if a person referring us business declines, no additional  referrals will  be accepted from that person.

Near Term Priorities 

We are  in the next phase of connecting with potential preferred members interested in funding liquidity for the assets already controlled by TTBY Our interest in valuable assets including real estate, manufacturing, retail, more that need liquidity is ongoing.  We have a unique aspect of our model for realtors.

Closing Stores and Cutting Expenses Is Not The Formula for Building Business Profits Because Those Actions Are Not The Cause

ExcellenceWhen you look at the data and the results it is easy to understand why a business is successful and another one fails. Amazon continues to expand what it offer and levels of service. They are obsessed with getting it right and your satisfaction. I am a Prime member and I think it costs about $79.00 a year. What that gets me is free shipping and fast delivery. I recently ordered several items that I use regularly the prices were better than Sams Club and delivered right to my door in 2 days. It is amazing service and that is the key to success in business.

Have you been to a Radio Shack lately? See the point? Relentless attention to delivering what the customer wants is key. For the record I am not knocking the helpful attitude of people who work at Radio Shack. In fact their willingness to help is generally far greater than what you will find at most retail stores. However, look at the rest of the picture of customer service. I have never received one email from Radio Shack and I am a customer. I receive emails from Amazon everyday. Because Radio Shack does not communicate with me I have no idea of what they are recommending or promoting and they have no idea of what I think of their service. On the other hand Amazon asks me to rate every transaction.

I am not an insider to Amazon and do no work for them. I would make a strong bet they have statistics on all areas of performance and are consistently looking for ways to improve. In reading articles about and interviews with Jeff Bezos, my impression is he operates at the level of founder as well as anyone in the world. He focuses on what will Amazon look like three to five years from now and even beyond. Most executives have no idea as to the precise roles of a founder, CEO and CFO. Most companies follow traditional organization structure and classical organization behavior still taught in most business schools. If those principles worked, companies like Radio Shack and others would be thriving.

Is there an absolute fool proof roadmap. My answer is yes with one qualification: people must use and implement it. Want to know more? Call Me.

How To Achieve Your Goals and Be Happy Along The Way

Most of us have heard the words to the effect “it is about the journey and not the destination”. That can be really challenging to accept when you can clearly see the destination and it seems to be very distant. Here is the key – one step at a time in the direction of your intended outcome with you being passionate about the outcome.

I have a client who has a retail business. He bought this business and he was comfortable with what to do because he had worked in the business for a number of years before having the opportunity to buy it. My job was to help him advance his skills in running a business. The measurement of project success is higher revenue and profits.

Break Up Goals Into StepsWell into the coaching program, he told me he really didn’t like the products that he sold. With that energy or lack of energy he was not doing the fundamental steps of an owner. I asked him that if he sold or closed down this business what would he do. He said another business selling products or services to customers. I then showed him how everything we were working on was needed to be done in any business. I further advised him that the best exist strategy was to strengthen the business results since that is how he would get the best purchase price for the company.

Today his sales are becoming increasing stronger and he has renewed energy for the business. What happened? First he started tracking key statistics. That alone often will result in business increasing. As business began to pick up he began to see new opportunities for creative display and pricing of product. He started spending more time himself with customers and got more ideas. So instead of continuing to spiraling downward, the trends reversed. Today he installing new systems software and implement several important marketing action plans.

The product line didn’t change. What changed was how he viewed the business and what he was learning about running any business that he decided to go into. Actually he is looking to add a new location and add a new product line that will appeal to his existing customer base.

How did he move to being happy about what he was doing? 1. He began to see the opportunities with the business that he had 2. He began following very clear advice and experienced positive results. Where is he on goal achievement? When we started like I do with every client we agreed on what would be the measure of success for the coaching program. Right now as a rate of sales, he is beating that goal.

Intellectual Understanding Does Not Mean You Will Implement 

Another client told me recently  the number one benefit of my program was keeping them focused on what is important.

In my experience people make a lot of progress during coaching and lose momentum if they interrupt the coaching process. For a Free Coaching Consultation Click Here

What Distinguishes My Business and Real Estate Investment Coaching and Consulting Practice From Nearly All Others and Is The Foundation of My Results Guaranteed Coaching Program

Fail Proof System!

There is a fail proof system to organize and manage any business. In fact cities and countries should use the system. Note this does not mean it is cookie cutter. It must me adopted for your company.

Successful Experience

I have extensive experience as an executive, business owner, entrepreneur, consultant and coach in the following industries:

Real Estate Investment – the focus of my business now
Retail
-Restaurants
-Convenience Stores
-Women’s clothing (big international business)
-Auto Parts
-Motorcycle
-Drugstores
Manufacturing
-Heave equipment
-high tech
-Auto Glass
Distribution
Internet
-Service Provider
-Social Media
-Marketing
Long Haul Trucking
Utility Trailers
Excavation
General Contracting/Construction

A number of the businesses are very large. One is more than $15 billion. Others are small to medium size companies and I have helped many independent entrepreneurs. This experience led to fine tune systems for success. Last year I released my first book “Building Business Profits Fast

Enhanced Systems

I have since been coached and mentored on enhanced system which are touched on in the book but not in-depth. The three main parts of the enhanced system are:

1. Organization Development or the Org Board
2. Admin Scale or The Spine
3. Management by Statistics

The scope of what are in these three categories is extensive. If we work together you will know the source and I will guide you step by step on how to implement these major tools. For now here is a brief summary

Org Board

Every company has 7 divisions and this applies to whether you are one person or millions. Knowing how to set up and manage your company within the structure of these divisions literally takes out the guess work in how to succeed. The next two areas actually fall under the umbrella of the org board – or at least that is how I think about it.

Admin Scale

My mentor refers to this as The Spine because like the human spine if one of the parts are damaged or out there is great pain. The Admin Scale consists of

Goals
Purposes
Policy
Plans
Programs
Projects
Orders
Ideal Scenes
Stats
Valuable Final Product

Before I continue with the last part I want you to know that my coaching and consulting work accelerates the implementation of all of this by my attention to what is most important now and the gradually painting the entire picture. My message to you is do not be intimidated by the scope of what I am briefly describing here. Welcome it because you are now learning about the processes that if followed mean you cannot fail. You cannot!

Management by Statistics – There are 6 Basic Statistical Trends

(From a priority point of view capturing the data and running the graphs are just about the top of the list. This specific tool is the  reason I can confidently offer

Results-GuaranteedResults Guaranteed Coaching 

Non- Existence
Danger
Emergency
Normal
Affluence
Power

I am including one example of one graph. Here is the important point: once you know the condition (what graph you are in) for any function, division or overall company performance there is a precise formula you follow for that condition. To follow it effectively the principles of the Org Board and Admin Scale must largely be in place.

affluence stat

Most of the detailed implementation steps that are published on my blogs and in my book are all used depending on the scope of the project. Going into all the details on marketing actions, The Gold Formula tm, Financial modeling, training and development is outside the scope of this article.

Success Mastery: The Basic Structure For Business Success

Success Mastery This Basis Structure Applies To Every Business

Clear Definition of Your Business – I use the phrase Executive Summary. Elevator Pitch is also very common. What is not taught very well is how to structure this for maximum retention by the listener and optimum value for your business. This area is supported by your business name and your domain name. Note: I do not focus on legal structure at this point unless you already have a level of experience with your business.

Why – So you have structured and are able to present your Executive Summary. Great now what is your Why for doing it? If your why is not big and bold enough you are will lose interest and focus. If you Why is because that is how you want to make money and your Why then is all about the money, your focus on what is required will wane and you will not achieve your business goals.

Results-GuaranteedNote: Each of these points for the foundation of my Results Guaranteed Coaching Program

Clearly Defined Outcome – This is always stated in measurable terms meaning revenue and profit if you are marketing products or services. If you are a real estate investor this is defined as business income – what you deposit in the bank from your deals that you can spend. The time line for this measurement varies depending on the business. However is almost always at least a year.

Define The Organization Structure Required When Your Business Is Fully Operational – Yes this is done in the early stages of the coaching program because business owners and entrepreneurs need to have a vision of what they are building plus the “Org Board” serves as a goal for building the team of people including outside resources that will help the owner or CEO achieve the intended results. This step in terms of the scope and detail that I know teach is actually new in the last 18 months.

Are you on my email list? If not – see the subscribe box on the upper right corner of this page. Do it now and start receiving very valuable Build Business Profits information.

Time Phased Income Goals – What this means is we take defined outcome goal which we previously said is normally defined as an annual goal and roll that back until we have agreed upon monthly targets and in many cases weekly and daily targets. We set this up on a proprietary program so you see the numbers and a graph of the numbers. This is the start of the process where you cannot fail if you follow it.

You are invited to connect with my Facebook Page http://facebook.com/buildprofits

Gold FormulaTime Phased Action Plans – Similar in principle to time phased income goals, I am sure you understand that income is an effect, action is the cause. However not every action results in income. So I spend a lot of time with clients on prioritizing actions and measuring the effect of those actions.  We use the same program where we set targets, measure actual statistics against the targets, graph both and use what the graphs are telling us as to the adjustments the actions that need to be made.  This is the implementation of The Gold Formula tm

This is the basic infrastructure of Building Business Profits Fast   the title of my first book. My next book is taking this foundation and going deeper into Building Real Estate Investment Business Profits Fast.  Again if your are on my email list you will be receiving excerpts from my books and more.

Success Mastery – Simple Actions To Jump Start The Profit Performance of Your Business

Build Business ProfitsOne of the simplest and most valuable things to do is look at your business from the perspective of your customer. If you have a retail store, shop it or hire a mystery shopper. If you have a customer service center, call them. If you develop information products that you sell on line, ask your customers 90 days later how they have benefited from the product and what else they would like to have seen included. If you have a membership program, and someone drops out, stay in touch to find out what it takes to get them back.

Recently I discontinued a membership program where I was paying a lot of money each month – much more than $100. I have not received one call or even one email asking me why. This is really amazing considering how much money it takes to get a person to sign up for the basic plan yet alone the plan I was in.

Here is another very valuable suggestion.   Follow Your Instincts! I have said this before and will be saying it in many articles in the future. Every client I have worked with knew the fundamental solutions to the issues they asked me to help them with. For a whole host of reasons they didn’t act and accepted inertia. In nearly every case the solutions were obvious and intellectually simple.

Right now list the top 3 issues that are holding you back from making breakthrough profits in your business. Then start devoting at least 80% of your time solving those three issues. Once solved, do it again and keep doing it. Simple stuff.

For Your Success!

CVS Stops Sale of All Tobacco – Does Not Make Sense Here Is Why

“Your Success –Is My Business” tm

Build Business Profits

CVS today announced they would no longer sale tobacco products in their stores because they are a health store. Based on that definition they should close their stores. Take a look starting with the Pharmacy. The Pharmacy is a legal drug dealer. Most of the products there are prescribed by doctors who are not promoting health they are fixing a specific issue based on a protocol from the pharmaceutical industry.

Let’s move to other categories in the store starting with snacks and food. Do you think soda, beer and wine are health products? What about snacks like chips and cookies? Are they health products?

Continuing, take a look at beauty care. Look at the ingredients in hair color, make up, skin care and more. Do you think those are products that promote health.

Understand I am not against what CVS or any other convenience store sells but you cannot come out and get publicity with one category by saying you are a health store and ignore all the other products offered that are opposite that theme.

If CVS does have strategy to be health store then my advice is to create a separate brand for the message and product offering. There are some great examples of companies that primarily offer organic foods, healthy products and services. Soon CVS will be announcing massive layoffs like Dell, Radio Shack and others and blaming Obamacare. There is nothing good about Obamacare but many of these companies need to be taking a close look in the mirror and remember this phrase when doing so “I am responsible”

CVS I hope I am wrong but I don’t see your company Building Business Profits Fast

Guaranteed Results Building Business Profits Fast

If you are in business I will coach you on growing that business to achieve mutually agreed upon targets within agreed upon time frames. Doubling sales and more than doubling profits in six months or less are common targets. If I accept you as a client, I guarantee the results. Of course you need to do the work.

Guaranteed Profitable Business Results New Business .
Start your own real estate investment firm and be in a profitable deal in 90 days or less. Then flip that deal and be in profit in 90 days or less after that. I will coach you and guarantee you will be in a profitable deal that will more than pay for your coaching program. You do not need the money to buy the real estate. You do not need good credit. You may have even filed for bankruptcy. I don’t care. What I do care about is you being willing to work, follow instructions and you are ethical. Click Here for the detailed article I wrote about this incredible opportunity. There are many people out there holding seminars, selling courses and coaching on how to make money in real estate. I know of only one other firm who is offering a coaching program and guaranteeing you will be in a profitable deal.

Recommended Businesses Especially For Those Very Inexperienced in Business and Marketing

Building Business Profits FastIn my book Building Business Profits Fast I talk about the valuable lessons I have learned from companies in the Network Marketing Industry. The one rule I have now is promote those companies marketing products that a lot of people are already using and using a lot of those products. This is why I continue to recommend the healthy coffee and tea product line of Organo Gold and the greeting card business of Send Out Cards. What I really like about both these companies that even if you decide not be an active business builder you will love using the products personally.
