Marketing Strategy vs Marketing Tactics (Yes they’re different)

I get the feeling that many small business owners consider marketing as nothing more than a tactical endeavor, completely lacking in any semblance of strategic thought. Sun Tzu, perhaps the greatest strategist ever, was a Chinese general and philosopher who lived somewhere around 500BC. His teachings are documented in The Art Of War, a book summarizing his philosophy on managing conflicts, wining battles, and beating the enemy. While originally a military text, The Art Of War became rather fashionable in…

Why a resume is not all that it is cracked up to be

Resumes. The old school way to judge someone based on what is written on a piece of paper. And you decide based on that information if you think they should work with you. Works every time right? WRONG. Well that is not how I hire staff. Not now, not ever. A resume doesn’t tell me your attitude – and your attitude will give me a far greater insight into you than any piece of paper. Now don’t get me wrong – I still review…

The myth…

Home Businesses You Can Start For Less Than $59

By Holly Reisem Hanna If you’re anything like me, your first experience with the direct sales industry is probably with Avon or Tupperware (both of which are still going strong today). In fact, our Avon Lady would make the rounds once a month, going door-to-door saying, “Avon calling.” My mom would let her in, and she’d show us all of her new products and goodies. As a kid, I loved looking at all of the makeup, lotions, and perfumes. Today…
