3 Principles That Will Make or Break Your Business

Building and growing a successful business is a very difficult thing to do. The truth is, most businesses will fail within the first three years. It is imperative that the culture of the company creates the best possible environment for success.

The three principles stated below are the same for any size company. It does not matter if you have two employees or 200, theses principles do not change.

However, as you grow your staff, you must be creative to keep these principles alive. Remember, bureaucracy and negativity can damage a business.

It is important to understand that these three principles all work together to create a culture. If you fall short on any one of these, then all three will break down. These principles work together like a well-oiled machine. If you are weak in any area, then the machine will not function at a high level.

Of course, this is based upon the assumption that you have an in-demand product or service that is viable to the market place. In other words, if you’re selling VCRs, I can’t help you.

The three principles below will affect everything you do, and I do mean everything.

Principle 1. EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION

When you see these two words you may think, well of course. But, and this is a big but, most people who think they communicate effectively fall short.

The most important part of communication is the art of listening. Great communicators are great listeners. You need to ask yourself and your employees “are you listening/understanding what is being communicated?” When someone is talking to you, are you thinking about what you want to say while they are speaking or are you intently listening, processing and then responding.

The word responding is important. There is a big difference between a reaction and a response.

A reaction usually means the person was not listening and will lead to communication breakdown. A reaction is usually emotional and not based on facts. When you get two or more people not listening and reacting, you now have a passive aggressive environment where productivity and problem solving will not function at a high level.

The only safe assumption when communicating is to assume the person knows nothing.

We live in a very complex business environment where technology is a huge part of business. Individual projects are a huge part of growth. Collective day-to-day emails, phone calls, conference calls and in-person meetings will ultimately determine the rise and or fall of your company.

Effective, detailed over-communication is vital in the new world of business.

When I first presented to the great business icon Red McCombs, the presentation was very simple with, for lack of a better term, “dumbed down basic details.” We came from the perspective that Mr. McCombs knew very little about the internet advertising industry.

I was a bit nervous before the presentation because I thought we might be insulting his intelligence. So, before we started I told him that the presentation was full of simplified detail, and I hoped he would not be offended. I will never forget what he said to me that day. He simply said, “Jon, just present to me like I know nothing about your industry or company. A great author or presenter always assumes the audience knows nothing.”

While I know Mr. McCombs did not invent this philosophy, it has stuck with me to this day because it demands that you never assume somebody knows what you know. When you get very close to anything, it is easy to lose site of the fact that even people in your company may not have the same perspective as you. You must always share all details from your perspective for them to fully and completely understand where you are coming from. There is nothing wrong with over-communication of details from your perspective. It creates accountability for all parties.

FYI – Mr. McCombs knew more than we thought he did, but he was never offended or insulted by our presentation. In fact, he really appreciated the detailed over-communication.

Details have always been important to a business, but now a lack of detailed communication can severely damage a business or project. Especially with a startup.

Principle 2. Mutual Accountability

Of course, accountability in any organization is very important. However mutual accountability is not always practiced within a business.

Accountability is a two-way street. No matter your position in the company all parties must be accountable to each other.

Being the boss doesn’t mean that your words and actions are not accountable to the team you manage. In fact, the more you are accountable to the team, the easier it will be to hold them accountable. This builds trust, loyalty and long-term respect.

When a new employee comes aboard, it is always important to explain that when you say you’re going to do something you are going to do everything in your power to make your words come true. If for some reason, you cannot turn your words in to reality, you will let them know why immediately and come up with a solution. This goes in both directions, you will hold them accountable for doing their job and delivering positive results. In other words, we are both going to do our jobs at a high level and if either of us have an issue we will discuss it in a respectful, solution-driven manner.

Your employees need to know that your door is open for effective communication and mutual accountability.

Principle 3. Mutual Respect

Respect within an organization is earned. While many people may be motivated out of fear of a boss, that is not what I’m referring to. It is important to understand that I’m not referring to fear.

If all a boss offers is fear, then your only motivation is not getting fired. This type of motivation usually does not end up creating productivity. It creates an environment where you do just enough to keep your job, and creates a political environment where individuals jockey for position while the overall company/team fails.

Most bosses are not respected for just being the boss. They are respected for bringing knowledge, judgement, experience and wisdom to the team. They are respected by taking care of the team members that are taking care of the company. This is true respect that will create loyalty and growth.

When talking to someone you do not respect, how productive is that conversation? Do you leave the room thinking negative thoughts pertaining to the task at hand getting done the right way? Of course you do.

Don’t get me wrong, this is not about liking a co-worker on a personal level. This is about having respect for a teammate’s talent, productivity, work ethic and how they will help the company and you achieve goals.

I have had many people that I liked very much as a person, but they did not make the cut and vice-versa.

If true mutual respect does not exist among teammates, things will breakdown and you have the wrong team.

How these three principles work together as circular equation.

This is quite easy to understand.

Without mutual accountability, your organization will not have effective communication or mutual respect.

Without effective communication, your organization will not have mutual accountability or mutual respect.

Without mutual respect, your organization will not have mutual accountability or effective communication.

If you have any problem with operations or company culture, you will be able to tie it to one or more of these principles.

When all three of these principles are in place, and are being practiced by all team members, you will have a positive culture of highly productive individuals that work together for a common goal.

My Business Philosophy for the Last 20 Years (VIDEO)

When Should You Hire?

The fundamental answer to everything you're not good at !! If you run a business watch this video and lmk your 💭

Posted by Gary Vaynerchuk on Wednesday, April 24, 2019

“Hire somebody that can do what you can’t.”


For the last 20 years I’ve been in business, as a CEO and entrepreneur, I have discovered what it takes to build successful companies. In the ever-evolving digital and business markets, it is not realistic to expect that you can be the best in every area of a company.

As a leader, it is important to realize not only your personal strengths and weaknesses, but also those of your team. As Gary Vaynerchuk says in the above video, “the fundamental answer to everything you’re not good at is to hire somebody that is good at it.” This has been my philosophy for as long as I can remember.

You don’t have to be the skill expert across every department within your company, but you should understand the craft well enough to know if your hire is doing a good job.

Building a diverse, dynamic and bright team is something I look for when building a business. Recognizing individual strengths and tailoring internal strategies to match your team’s innate capabilities creates a recipe for a company’s success.

Ego is a giant vulnerability when it comes to hiring and finding people who can do the stuff you’re weak at. The truth is, it is a good idea to hire someone who is better than you.

The moral of the story is: don’t let your own ego hold you back from hiring an all-star team that will help you succeed. Let them do what they do best. Sure, you can be powerful on your own, but forming a team of strong go-getters will make you unstoppable across the board.

These 8 Simple Things Will Make You the Best

There are more people out there today competing for scarce jobs; the competition for careers is more educated and the pressure to be successful is huge with severe economic circumstances facing everyone.

To win in this type of environment requires that you be the best at what you choose to do, that you be the topic of conversation. That you and only you deliver unique results that matter.

These 8 proven and practical actions will enable you to be unmatched in the crowd of people hungry for success in their career.

8. Be seen

If you’re not noticed, how can you be judged among your peers? Recognition for achieving results can only come when the career decision makers are aware of what you are doing and the value you are creating.

Manage your activity with this in mind. Don’t force it — like “Hey! Look at me!” — but ensure that people know you and are are able to compare you to your colleagues.

This will also get you top of the list of high potential people who should be given greater opportunities to prove their worth.

7. Look for niche opportunities

Try and be a player in a strategic area where the need is greatest as opposed to trying to be a generalist who aspires to be all things to all people.

For example if your organization is suffering from the lack of marketing skills to differentiate itself from competitors (and you are a competent marketer), focus your brand building efforts there.

The best are recognized as individuals who provide the unique leadership required to achieve strategic success. They focus their energy and use their competencies in the specific areas that will deliver superlative performance for their organization.

6. Be different than everyone else

It always amazes me that everyone wants to copy what works for others. When confronted with a problem to solve, it seems a natural tendency to consult best practices and employ the tactics and game plan that others have successfully implemented.

Whereas benchmarking what others do may result in improvements, it will never give you a strategic advantage over your competitors.

The best don’t copy. They set the standard that others aspire to achieve. And they do it by being different in some meaningful way that resonates with their audiences.

5. Keep your promises

A simple thing really, but one that so often is missing in action when it comes to peoples’ integrity.

It shouldn’t be an advantage to someone but it is. Many are great with the words and rhetoric but fall short on the action and results.

Someone who has a strong brand around doing what they say will surpass those who rely on words alone to set them apart.

Successful people don’t just aspire, they do.

4. Keep your education a secret

The truth is that the best doesn’t come from being the most well-educated.

There are too many people who are likely to have degrees and marks better than yours. Furthermore academic credentials are not a reliable predictor of success.

In the real world success comes from achieving results faster than others — from being more nimble than the crowd.

Being the best is achieved by getting stuff done better than anyone else, not by out-thinking them.

You DO need a good knowledge foundation to even play the career game, but it’s the actions you take that make a difference.

3. Do more than what is asked for

Most of my competitors did the minimum amount to meet the given objective.

My view was always to meet the minimum expectation and look for an opportunity to go beyond it, to create work that was more original and insightful than what others did.

Sure, it took extra time to do it, but it was worth it in the long run.

Look for opportunities to:

  • Make your work broader and richer than expected by engaging more experts and opinion leaders in your analysis.
  • Provide a greater level of detail in your reports. Don’t just skim the surface; do a “deep dive” into your material and provide the granularity your readers don’t expect.
  • Package your work differently than what others do; make your work compelling for your audience to study.

The required minimum satisfies expectations; going beyond attracts attention and feeds best opinions.

2. Surprise ‘em

Most people approach a problem they have been asked to solve in the same way.

They do a SWOT analysis, set a goal and then develop a list of objectives to achieve. The pedantic way that your competitors use.

Being the best requires breaking away from the way everyone else approaches a challenge and doing it in a way that surprises people.

Some simple ways of coming at this:

  • Ask someone who is affected by the problem how THEY would solve it. People closest to the problem often don’t get invited to help solve it; those looking in are surprised when they are.
  • Abbreviate the formal analysis; get to a solution fast, implement it and tweak it on the run. Spending most of your time to figure out how to implement a solution is almost never done; when you do you just might attract a “WOW!”.
  • Go in the opposite direction implied by the traditional problem solving approach. Doing a 180 on how a problem is typically addressed is often a great inertia breaker and will attract attention.

1. Change the terms of engagement

It’s all about context — the “bigger picture” — and most people don’t think this way. Push the narrative to a higher level than the issue on the table.

For example, rather give an opinion on civic leadership ethics raise the level of the conversation to discuss civic leadership accountability — a broader topic which includes ethics.

I am constantly asked my opinion, for example, on specific advertising campaigns, and I refuse to comment until I clearly understand the strategy the ad intends to fulfill. Unless you have strategic context your views are merely personal biases and add little value.

The best avoid getting drawn in to a debate on a narrow topic; they create a more holistic frame of reference and go their to present their views.

The best don’t conform; they don’t comply; they don’t rely on their schooling and they don’t copy what others do.

They look for niche opportunities and rely on “doing it” to achieve results that others are incapable of delivering.

Dust Off Your Leadership for Better Results

The intense, conflicted global environment we face is formidable. Sitting still won’t keep our leadership up to the task.

It’s definitely not a good time to let our leadership get dusty from a lack of attention. It’s time to take action.

Here are three things you can do to dust off your leadership and discover your best capabilities:

1. Assess your ethics

Use this assessment to find out if you’re right on point or a bit behind the times in terms of ethical awareness and expectations.

2. Pick an area to dust off

Pick one area from the assessment that you were not able to check off. This is an area where you can improve your thinking, communication and/or behavior.

3. Learn deeply, sweeping away outdated thinking

Dig in to learn more and improve your ethical thinking in that area. To find materials, search this blog for posts on the topic area you chose. Leading in Context posts include links to resources, including many beyond this blog.

Be alert for these possible side effects

After a thorough dusting that sweeps away outdated leadership thinking, you may notice these common (helpful, not harmful) side effects:

  • Deeper respect from your team
  • Increased employee engagement
  • Improved team productivity
  • Renewed energy
  • Greater satisfaction from your leadership role

Interactive Video Can Be a Lot More Than Just Shoppable

AI and image recognition can turn passive watching into a true lean-in experience

KERV Interactive, the world’s most advanced interactive video technology company.

Advertisers and brand marketers have all been abuzz about shoppable video recently. But their focus has been almost exclusively on selling products. It’s time to start thinking bigger.

Think of it this way: Do you go to a search engine just to find something to buy? Do you read articles only to click on embedded links that send you to a store? Do you surf the web only to make a purchase? Probably not. So why are links in video limited to shopping? Video has to become truly interactive.

What does that entail? Current video links can go beyond simply connecting people to a place to buy a product. They can create an even richer experience by helping viewers engage more deeply with the topic. Imagine the unprecedented data, unparalleled engagement and deep insight you could get from going beyond shoppable video. The technology is here, but it has not been widely adopted, yet.

People do a lot more than shop

People are interested in a broad range of topics—celebrities, places, experiences, finance, education and, yes, retail products. But consumers of digital video—things like in-stream ads, short-form content and branded content—can only click through to buy what’s being sold. They have never had the opportunity or the ability to engage and dive deeper into that content.

By 2020 online videos will make up more than 80 percent of all consumer Internet traffic, according to Cisco. I find it illogical that web and mobile platforms, all fully engageable, have little way to connect with the most popular form of content—video. In fact, when you think about it, ads are really the only form of video that you can actually click on.

Being able to truly engage with video will be a paradigm shift for everyone. And that advanced interactivity requires automation and scale.

Current HTML5 technology that is used for most shoppable video overlays can take weeks to implement and is a custom, manual process. That time-consuming process is why interactivity is limited to shopping. It hasn’t evolved because there isn’t the scale.

But with advances in AI and machine learning, we can now quickly identify, describe and link any person, place or thing within a video in a matter of hours. This has the potential to make video far more immersive and experiential because it can now all be done at scale. Consumers will be able to explore, learn more and, yes, even shop within a video.

Making video a true lean-in experience

A company that has thousands of videos in its library can now, in a matter minutes per video,  make every individual aspect in the video interactive. This means that every person, place or thing can be quickly identified, described and linked out to. And those links can be native to the video and non-intrusive to the user.

Video has always been thought of as a lean-back media. Now, consumers can now lean in as deeply as they want to with video content and create their own experiences.

This has the potential to change what advertisers and brands can learn from video viewership. For instance, they’ll be able to see how their video content is performing on a scene-by-scene level and how users are engaging with it. They can then use that data to help drive future content creation and personalization. Video becomes a format that is truly accountable.

Interactive video is a technology whose time has come. As an industry, we need to evolve from repurposing linear TV content and ads for online use and holding them to the same success metrics as other digital channels. At KERV, our goal is to revolutionize digital video. And that’s going to come from thinking of interactivity as something that goes beyond shoppable.

How to Visualize Your Own Success

Jon Flatt speaks about the power of visualization

I wanted to talk a little bit about visualization, and visualizing things that you want to achieve. When we started KERV Interactive we had a lot of aspirations and a lot of goals. What we always did was set very high goals for ourselves and used those visual aspects of goal achievement to make sure that everything we are doing is really pressing forward towards achieving our goals. Whatever your goal is – if it’s to buy a beautiful car [or] go on a beautiful vacation – you should be looking at that visual, meditating and then understanding what it’s going to take to get there. It’s a great motivator; it’s something I’ve done throughout my whole career. When you really want something you always have to visualize, meditate on it, visualize what you want and make a plan to go get it. The visualization aspect of it is kind of building [a] bridge in your mind to get there, [and that] is a very important aspect to actually achieving [your goal]. I suggest every morning when you wake up – or evening, whenever you relax a little bit – look at something you really want, get a visual in your mind of something you really want to achieve and then go get it. – Jon Flatt, CEO at KERV Interactive

What Science Says About Visualization

1. Visualize first. Then plan.

According to more than 200 scientific studies on visualization, the best way to achieve real results is to utilize two types of visualization. This tactic is known as mental contrasting.

By following up your pie-in-the-sky Painted Picture with nuts-and-bolts strategic planning, you’ll have both the inspiration and the game plan necessary to reach your desired destination.

As you use mental contrasting, it’s critical to do the visualization and strategic planning in different places as these two processes require completely different mindsets.

The Painted Picture is best done away from the office so it it’s unencumbered by your current limitations, leaving the x’s and o’s of your business plan for your strategic planning process.

2. Having a vision is highly correlated with company growth.

Dozens of academic studies on what successful leaders have in common all point to vision as a core component. The evidence is clear: simply having a vision has a significant impact on the outcomes of employees and the organization.

In a study of 183 entrepreneurs (average revenue: $2.5 million), the average growth of companies with a vision was more than double than the companies without a vision.

3. Stories (told as visions of the future) change the way we think.

Another reason the Painted Picture works is that by visualizing abstract goals as pictures and videos, you’re essentially turning your future into a story that will stick.

Human beings are narrative creatures, and according to the research, great stories are not only easy for us to remember, but they also alter our beliefs, reduce our ability to detect inaccuracies and evoke new emotions in us. Our brains are wired to pay attention to and remember them.

To understand this phenomenon, you don’t need to look any further than your own personal experience desperately rooting for the protagonists in Jurassic World or for Elon Musk’s vision to colonize Mars. In other words, telling the story of your future company through a Painted Picture is a great way to inspire your team.

4. Making the future detailed makes it easier for you and others to prioritize it and make sacrifices for it.

Most people have trouble sacrificing something in the present in return for something larger in the future.

For example, in the famous “Marshmallow Test”children are offered one marshmallow right away or two marshmallows if they can wait for 15 minutes. About 70% take the marshmallow right away. Fascinatingly, the remaining 30% were much more likely to succeed in the future, including scoring 210 points higher on average on the SAT. (Forty years later, the findings still hold true).

What separates the two groups? It turns out that the difference lies in the availability bias. This is the cognitive bias where we make decisions based on what our mind can immediately recall.

In this case, the availability bias is manifested in the pleasure of eating marshmallows immediately. Our brain recalls that pleasure far more easily, in comparison to the relatively weak promise of future reward.

The young people who were successful hacked their brain by distracting themselves from the concrete short-term reward of eating the marshmallow. Instead, they focused on the abstract longer-term reward.

The Painted Picture operates using the same principle. By bringing the future into focus, it makes it easier for people to buy into it and sacrifice for it on a day-to-day basis.

5. Sharing a vision publicly creates internal pressure to make it a reality.

For all of the benefits of visualization, the true benefits to your business come when you share it. This is how we share our Painted Picture with our loved ones, employees, franchise partners and other stakeholders.

Public commitment, as documented by researcher Robert Cialdini, is an incredibly effective technique to get people to follow through with what they say. In one study where potential election voters were asked to publicly share if they were voting and why, next day voter turnout increased by 25%.

6. Revisiting it daily makes you like it more.

By revisiting the Painted Picture daily, I get more and more excited and committed to it. This phenomenon is called the mere exposure effect: the more we see something completely new, the more we develop a preference and have good feelings about it.

In one study on the mere exposure effect, simply repeatedly exposing people to fake Chinese characters for two seconds increased their liking towards those characters gradually.

No one has done a study on whether the mere exposure effect directly makes you more excited or committed to the vision, but that has been my personal experience and the mere exposure effect is one possible reason why.
