EPISODE 234 When starting something new people tend to want to go big! Remember, when you go for the Grand Opening the goal isn’t to edify and educate; it’s to make money. Dr. Bray disagrees with that method. Start small, figure it out, grow, adapt, pivot. The slow burn is the way to go.

 

STUFF WE LEARN IN THIS EPISODE

Google, Microsoft and other large organizations grew slowly and spread by word of mouth to gain the traction of growth.

Your product or service doesn’t need to be the best to launch, it just needs to be “g0od enough”.  Realize you will always need to take your customer’s needs and wants into account and modify your product. If you’ve done all you can and are asking for feedback and you adapt to the information you receive customers will come back because they know your product or service will get better.

Start small.
Give a lot of effort.
Take feedback.
Perfect.

QUESTION:
“My manager asked what I like about my present job and what do I consider my next professional steps? We discussed my short and long term goals. I offered to send a memo with a more structured answer. Do you have advice on what I should write in this memo?” -Anonymous, France

ANSWER:
Talk about the here and now, your successes this year. Sell yourself! Talk about your current position over the next 1-2 years and where you will add to the value of the organization. Next, talk about the next position you’re looking for and what your strengths are.  Lastly, talk about what your career will look like in the next 3-5 years and what position you’re working towards.

QUESTION:
“Can you talk about growth mindset and my child? Sometimes we have difficulties with how my daughter thinks.” -Anonymous, Eastern U.S.A.

ANSWER:
Read the book “Mindset” by Carol Dweck. Young people are learning how to create a growth mindset. Being able to teach children this concept is valuable and can have life long benefits.
