We Are Our Own Worst Enemy
We are often our own worst enemy. This is an idea especially relevant to business owners. Financial and Business Consultant Todd Rooker and I talk about it in Business-Risks-Preconceived Notions-Bob Davis Podcast 827.
Our Psychology Can Kill Our Business
Moreover these days wherever you turn for information you’re likely to get a prediction based on the past. It all adds up to preconceived notions and cognitive dissonance which can be fatal to a small business.
Perception Can Be A Reality You Don’t Want To Live In
Financial Consultant Extraordinaire Rooker says it comes down to business owners wanting what they want, when they want it. I think it also has to do with this habit of pundits and commentators everywhere trying to compare our time, to the past rather than the present.
Assumption Is The Mother Of All F-Ups
Consequently business owners need guidance. Its very easy to get off the path or the plan. Especially when we might not have had much of a plan to start with. We talk about all this in Business-Risks-Preconceived Notions-Bob Davis Podcast 827.
Rooker Tells It Like It Is
Finally if you’re a business owner you won’t hear business being discussed with this level of clarity and authenticity very often. Rooker has worked with thousands of business owners over the years. When you add life and business experience, he has a lot of wisdom to share.
Topics include the business mindset, cognitive dissonance and how to effects business owners, how different generations think about business overall, and our fast moving new world.
An Extraordinary Time
In conclusion I have certainly said over and over in these podcasts that I think we’re living through an extraordinary time. Never before have we faced the challenges we face. In addition we have never had tools with the power and scope we have these days. It’s a unique combination of factors we’ve never really seen before.
Despite the challenges it is a great time to be in business, as long as we don’t operate from preconceived notions.
