The Benefits of Repeated Action

Posted on: June 30th, 2017 by R. Shawn McBride No Comments

Legendary blogger and business guru Jeff Walker has said there are great benefits to repeating actions. Essentially, if you do something again and again, you will get better at it, you will become more efficient, and you’ll be able to learn more and do more. We can all benefit from this focus and activity, and as you work through it, you’ll do better.

A lot of people are afraid to take action because they’re afraid that they’re not going to do well, or that they’re going to stumble along the way. This is a natural fear. However, you can overcome that. One of the best ways to overcome your fear is to simply start an action. As you start taking action and seeing yourself, you’ll start seeing your weak spots. You’ll learn. Much like a child learning to ride a bicycle, we’ll fall over a few times, but each time we’ll do a little better. You too can improve your habits and your abilities in any area you choose. The key is to start the path of action.

Inaction and inertia are difficult. Starting the path of action will lead to great benefits, and as you do better you’ll gain momentum and learning, and that learning will help you be more powerful at the things you’re doing. Start now. Start taking actions. Start refining and learning. You’ll be surprised how quickly you come along when you start taking action rather than thinking about taking action.

What’s your experience? Have you been able to overcome the inertia and get started on projects? What have you done in the past? Join us in the comments below and let us know about your experiences.

Need a Great Plan? It’s Easier Than You Think

Posted on: June 29th, 2017 by R. Shawn McBride No Comments

R. Shawn McBride recently spoke about having a great plan in business.

Hey, folks, it’s Shawn here with you and I want to talk about the steps to make a great plan. You know, my keynote to The Three Laws of Empowerment talks about building plans, and its three steps: it’s preparing, planning, and protecting.

So, how do we build really great plans? How do we build really exceptional plans that really have a chance of working? What are the steps? People are always asking me, “what are the right steps for a plan?”

Well, number one we need to have a dream, we have to have a vision. That’s kind of the preparation, we need to know where we’re going with the plan.

Then, we need to figure out what the steps are. We’re gonna break down the plan into individual steps, where you do this, this, this, this, and this. Move towards our plan. Once we have the plans now the hard part comes.

Step three, we need to figure out what needs to change. And this is going to require some introspection and some thought because if you were able to get where you want to go, you’d already be there. So, something has to change. You need some additional training, you need a different mindset, you need to somehow break out of something. You need to get resources, you need to pair up with somebody. Something needs to change.

Once you have these three steps down, now we set a timeline.

And the fifth step is adjustments. Now we’re gonna work back through the plan. So, it’s a very simple way to come up with a plan, right? We have a dream and a vision, a set ten-year plan or more, of where we’re going. Once we know where we’re going, then we want to set the steps. How do we incrementally get there? Then we want to figure out what needs to change. There’s something that needs to be changed, or else we’d already have those achievements and success. Timeline, adjust it then refine it. Step five is you’re gonna have to refine it. I guarantee the first or second time you go through all this, not everything is gonna fit together. So, you’re really gotta work through it.

What plans are you working on? What dreams do you have? I’d love to hear in the comments. I’d love for you to reach out to me and let me know what you’re doing. I want to hear. We’re getting this community going here, we’re all in this together. What plans are you working on? How can we help you? Reach out, let me know what questions you have.

Check out the McBride for Business blog. McBride’s attorney’s blog as well for more technical legal stuff. Mcbride for business Youtube channel, great videos to help you in this process in planning. R. Shawn McBride public page on Facebook, like it, join it, be there, and then get that valuation checklist on Mcbride for Business and let me know what you come up with. Let me know how I can help you. Reach out, informal questions, I’d love to do some more videos for content that the audience needs. And of course I’m available if you need me in person, if you want to do some one on one work, coaching, bring me into your organization for training or keynotes, I am available, so let’s talk about whether there’s a fit there.

Looking forward to talking to you more. Let me know what you guys need because this community is all about you. So, R. Shawn McBride signing off and I’ll see you all very soon.

Put On Your Oxygen Mask First

Posted on: June 29th, 2017 by R. Shawn McBride No Comments

It’s sage advice, and we hear it so often on airplanes, and people occasionally refer to it in the business world, but we forget about the meaning and importance of this advice. When you’re on an airplane, they’ll instruct you that in the event of an emergency, if you’re traveling with others, to secure your oxygen mask first and then help the others around you. This makes perfect sense. If you’re incapacitated, you can’t help those who need your help. You need to make sure that you have the capacity first and that you’re in sound shape, and then you can assist others.

The same is true in life and business. You need to make sure that you have your foundation. You need to make sure you have your plan and that you’re doing your things. We talk a lot about working with teams and being empowered. It’s the underlying message in The 3 Laws of Empowerment. Your personal empowerment is your ability to help others. You can change lives, as we’ve spoken about in other blogs. But it all starts with you. You need to be in control of your destiny and your situation. When you grab the wheel and make sure that you’re directing your life and your career the way that you want, then you start making the positive impacts on the world that you want to make through your power, through that empowerment.

That advice you hear every time you board an aircraft — to put your oxygen mask on first — is very sage advice. It doesn’t apply only in rare air emergency. It applies in your business. It applies in your planning. It applies in your life. If you use these lessons today, you’ll be able to do more. You’ll be able to help more people. You’ll be able to make a greater impact.

What’s your experience? Have you ever put others first and had a failure because of it? Have you ever gotten your things in order and then been able to assist more people? Join us in the comments below and let us know your thoughts and experience.

Is There a Huge Risk To Your Business That You Aren’t Thinking About?

Posted on: June 28th, 2017 by R. Shawn McBride No Comments

R. Shawn McBride recently spoke about the importance of updating your buy/sell.

Hey, folks, Shawn with you here. I wanna talk about something important. Its does your buy-sell really work? And we recently did a video series on it, but it’s worth driving home the point again if you didn’t see that video series, go check it out, but I need you as business owners to really be thinking about whether your buy-sell really works. And the truth is a lot of times they get out of date.

When’s the last time you looked at your buy-sell? You probably thought of one when you formed your company, or maybe you were in such a hurry to form your company you didn’t do one. So, where are you now? How do things stand? Do the mechanisms in place actually work for you, or do they just fall apart? Many times we find the valuation and the methodologies people thought would be great when they formed the company no longer makes sense two to three years later.

Maybe you just didn’t stop to do that buy-sell, now what if your partner dies, what if your partner gets a divorce? What happens to your business? It’s a great time to go back and update your buy-sells, revisit them, and get them in order so that we have a clear, safe future. So, if you’re not sure about your buy-sell, let’s pull it out and let’s read it.

You have an advantage as a business owner because you can change your buy-sell without involving a lawyer. If that buy-sell makes sense to you, you make be in okay shape because it’s gonna be read by a judge or a jury if we get into litigation. If it’s very technical and legalistic, and you don’t understand what you’re reading, you could have a problem.

You want to have a very simple buy-sell, that’s mechanical, that makes business and economic sense. Is that what you have? And does it work for your current circumstances? Or does it need to be updated? I bet most of them need to be updated. Most people don’t read their buy-sells until they end up in a dispute. That’s the wrong time. The time to look at your buy-sell is now. So go back, take a look at it, see if it’s accurate and update it from there.

So, folks, if this is resonating with you, check out the McBride for Business blog and the McBride Attorney’s blog. Like the R. Shawn McBride public page on Facebook, because I’m going to keep pushing content. We’ve got community building there, where everybody is helping each other do better and do great things in business and I want you to be part of it. And the McBride for Business Youtube channel, subscribe.

Get your business valuation checklist at and let me know how I can help you. Reach out, send me your questions, send me your thoughts. If I keep hearing the same question over and over again, I will develop videos for it. And I would love to come out and work with these groups one on one, do some coaching, training, facilitating, keynoting, whatever’s necessary to spread this message. It’s a passion of mine, I want people to have good agreements in place, have executable plans, and get to their dreams. R. Shawn McBride, I’m gonna see you all again soon.

Do You Ever Wonder Why?

Posted on: June 28th, 2017 by R. Shawn McBride No Comments

Do you ever wonder why certain things keep happening to you? Are you in a cycle of repetition?

Some of my clients and friends see the same things happen to them again and again and again. If you talk to them about it, a lot of times they’ll say, “It’s bad luck,” or, “This is just what happens to me,” as if the universe has destined a certain outcome or certain events to happen to them and only them. However, I think things are a little more complex than that. I don’t think certain people have been picked to be beat up by the world or to have certain events happen to them again and again and again. We are the products of our actions.

Now, sometimes the things that cause the actions and reactions can be very subtle. We may not realize what we’re doing. We may be doing little things and putting energy out there, or allowing people to treat us a certain way. If we’re not careful about how that works, we’ll keep seeing the same outcomes again and again and again.

The key is, if you keep seeing an outcome happening in your world, good or bad, you need to trace back. Why is this happening to you? What is causing this? What is driving this event? Once you understand the cause, you can work backward and determine how to either change that cause or if the outcome is positive, how to have more of that cause. The key is to understand things are not random. There are not certain people who have been picked out by the world to be beat up or to be put in bad situations. You’re causing it. Your actions are causing it. If it’s happening more than once or twice, that’s more than an isolated incident. If you see a pattern, then there’s probably some behavior or action on your part involved.

Think about it. Think about how to adjust and change, and think about how to move forward to create even more value in the world. What’s your experience? Have you had certain events keep recurring to you? What have you done to break the cycle and to keep things moving forward? Join us in the comments below and let us know your thoughts and experience.

Business Partners Pushing You Out: Can They Do That? Learn More in This Video

Posted on: June 27th, 2017 by R. Shawn McBride No Comments

R. Shawn McBride recently spoke about business partners pushing another partner out.

Hey, folks! It’s Shawn here. I get a question that comes up a lot here. People are asking me, “Can my business partner push me “out of the business?” Can I be removed from my own business by something “my business partner does?” And the answer is, “It depends.”

We need to really look at your particular business. Now, when you formed your business, assuming you formed an entity, you probably filed with your applicable state. So you probably did a Certificate of Formation or similar document with your state, and then you probably entered into an LLC Agreement. Let’s hope. A lot of people don’t take that step, but you typically need an LLC Agreement, Company Agreement, or Operating Agreement. Hopefully one of these terms is ringing a bell and you’ve got that. Those two items are gonna govern most of what you do.

If you’re a corporation, very similar to the bylaw shareholder agreements. But, your internal documents are gonna govern what happens here. And if you don’t have internal documents, most of the time you’re probably gonna be looking at your oral agreement, which is very difficult, because now you have your memory and your partner’s memory and everybody’s gotta remember what they provided for the removal of a partner, and you may default back to the statute. So in many cases, if you’re going to the statutory level, it can be difficult to remove a partner.

But, if you’re looking at your agreement, often you have a provision, a well-drafted agreement will provide for removal and replacement of partners from time to time. Additions, removals, because we need to be fluid, and we know partners will come and go. Partners might have criminal activity. There might be other issues come up. Partners might just economically wanna leave. So a well-drafted Partnership Agreement is going to be dynamic and there may be a provision in there that allows one or more partners to push another partner out. This would be some type of buyout, or vote, or some other mechanism.

So, we’re going back to your documents, we’re gonna dig in, we’re gonna look at them in detail. We’re gonna figure out whether that partner can push you out or not. In many cases, if you haven’t signed those documents, you haven’t done the things, it may be difficult. But a lot of times you’ve signed the documents, particularly if they’re sophisticated documents, they will have that provision in there. There’s another warning against internet forms, right? We see a lot of internet forms out in the world. People are using these things over and over again, and are not thinking about what they do. So, if you’re using internet forms, this is one of the things that can come up and haunt you and bite you. And if you formed your company with internet forms, great time to fix that problem while things are still good with your partner.

So, if this is resonating with you, and you have other issues, check out the McBride for Business blog or the McBride Attorneys blog and go to the R. Shawn McBride public page on Facebook. Like it, you’ll get more videos and content for you and your business. And let me know how I can help you. Reach out to me. McBrideforBusiness.com 214-418-0258 Give me a call. Let me know what issues you’re dealing with, what content we can get you, and how we can help you get your business to the next level. It’s Shawn signing off for now. Talk to you soon! R.

Is it Time for a Change?

Posted on: June 27th, 2017 by R. Shawn McBride No Comments

There are a lot of sayings out there.

“History repeats itself.”

“If you keep doing the same thing over and over again, you should expect the same result.”

If you see the same result again and again and again from the things you’re doing, is it time for a change? Is it time to do something differently? Could you make the outcome different if you had different inputs? It’s something to think about.

Usually, the outputs are driven by our actions, whether those actions are intentional or habit-driven. Whatever we do puts things into the universe, sends messages out to other people, and comes back to us a certain way. If you see the same results over and over and over, if you’re experiencing the same types of situations again and again and again, it may be time to make an adjustment and make a change if you’re not happy with the output. The input leads to output.

What are you putting out there? What are you causing to happen? What should you change in the future? Join us in the comments below and share your experiences with us.

Why You Need a Written Business Plan: A Rarely Discussed Aspect

Posted on: June 26th, 2017 by R. Shawn McBride No Comments

R. Shawn McBride recently spoke about the need for a written business plan.

It’s Shawn with you here. I want to talk about a rarely discussed reason why you need business plans. Written business plans. We’ve talked about how great business plans are and how they should be in writing. These allow you to do a lot of things. Allows you to understand where you’re going, it allows you to communicate with investors, it allows you to update your management teams, and it gives you a clear picture of what’s in your business, what’s not in your business.

There are a lot of great reasons why we want written business plans and I work with a lot of clients on building and refining their business plans particularly on the legal side of my house, my law firm when we’re doing a securities offering. You’ll need to describe the business to the buyer even if they’re a credit investor it’s usually advisable to explain it.

But there’s a reason why we need business plans that aren’t discussed enough and it’s a reason that’s out there and it’s because we need to be ready for the evolving marketplace. It takes a long time to build a good business plan and I’m not talking about just a business plan you can throw at somebody. I’m talking about a really comprehensive business plan that explains your business – that describes where you’re at and where you’re going. That takes time and effort, right? Usually at least several weeks, probably a couple months in the real world when you have other things going on and can’t focus on just that.

So we wanna have a quality written business plan waiting just in case, in case we need a sudden capital rating or we get sudden investor interest. We wanna show that we’re prepared and one of the things they’re gonna be impressed by is that you have this stuff in order, you have your business plan in order and you have your documents ready to go. So you talk about always being ready for an acquisition, you also always wanna be ready for an investment. You wanna know that if people come to you unexpectedly that you can get it ready and have a good written business plan waiting today would help you a lot. So it’s something you wanna jump on.

Reach out to an attorney, reach out to a consultant, get rolling on this process sooner rather than later cause you may miss a great opportunity in the future. It’s really money well spent, it’s gonna help you in many, many ways. It’s also gonna position you for that offering.

If this is speaking to you, it’s the type of thing you see, come to McBride for business. Check out our blog . McBride Attorneys also has a blog focused more on legal issues. Like the R. Shawn McBride public page on Facebook where I bring great videos like this and we can help you extend your knowledge and do more with your business. I really wanna help, I wanna be part of your team.

And of course, like the McBride for Business YouTube channel to get videos as well. Let me know how I can help you, reach out. I’m just an email or a phone call away. 214-418-0258. I wanna know what issues you’re dealing with cause I wanna bring great content that helps people. And if I can come in and work with you one on one or your teams, do some training or a keynote speech and help your organization advance, we’d love to see how we can help. Give me a buzz, R. Shawn McBride signing off. I will talk with you all very soon.

You Can Change Lives

Posted on: June 26th, 2017 by R. Shawn McBride No Comments

If you follow my blog, you know I’m an advocate of The 3 Laws of Empowerment. The 3 Laws are all about building your personal plan and executing it. What’s amazing is so many people who have followed The 3 Laws, or principles similar to The 3 Laws, have transformed lives. That includes me. It’s an amazing feeling to change the direction of another person, to allow that person to see new possibilities, to do more in life, to impact families, children, employees, and others.

To truly change something for the better, and to see the ripple effects.

The important message here is: This isn’t a reserved quality for me or others. Everybody’s empowered. If you follow the principles of The 3 Laws of Empowerment, or otherwise empower yourself, you too should be able to change lives. You too should be able to make a difference and do more. How enriching and rewarding would that feel, to change lives? You don’t have to be a superhero. You don’t have to be a celebrity. You have the power within you. You just need to tap into it.

What differences do you make? How do you want to impact others? Think about it, and think about how you want to change lives because anything is possible. What do you want to do with your future? How do you want to impact the world? What legacy do you want to leave when you’re gone? Join us in the comments below and let us know about your thoughts and experience.
