Just Keep Going

Posted on: September 25th, 2017 by R. Shawn McBride No Comments

In a previous blog, I talked about how sometimes you just have to take the next step. I relayed my experience of being in a climbing jungle and zip lining course where I was very high in the air and doing tricks and movements which I wasn’t accustomed to doing. Sometimes I had to just keep moving forward to take the next step.

Another lesson I’ve learned over the years is sometimes you just have to keep going. There I was on that particular day, 40 to 50 feet in the air, hooked to a safety cable, and doing tricks that were difficult. It was relatively warm, I was sweaty, I was tired, but I had two choices. I could scream and shout for help with tourists below me watching me, by the way, or I could just figure out how to find a little more energy and just keep going. Several times I had to stop, mentally reflect, and push forward and keep my momentum and get to where I was going. If I had stopped, I would have lost. I would have lost control. My experience would have been different and I would not have accomplished what I did. Instead, I kept going. I didn’t consider failure as an option. I just kept inching forward. Because of it, I was successful.

We can do the same things in business. A lot of times, things will be scary. Sometimes we’ll try something and it won’t work. Sometimes we’ll do something two times and nothing will happen. Then you do it the third time and suddenly something changes. You change one word in a script and you go from being a failure to a hero. Sometimes things are subtle and we just need to keep pressing along. My experience in the climbing gym taught me sometimes you just have to keep going. Stopping may not be your best option. Moving forward solidly may be what gets you where you’re going. We can apply this in our personal lives and can apply this in our businesses.

Sometimes You Just Have to Take The Next Step

Posted on: September 23rd, 2017 by R. Shawn McBride No Comments

Recently, I took a trip for a business meeting, and I took a day off. I went and experienced a town. I got to enjoy the local sites. As part of my day, I went onto a climbing and zip lining course. It was very instrumental because it taught me a lot. I’ve talked previously about the benefits of taking free days and days where you don’t engage in your normal business activity to change your perspective and to give you new energy. This was one of those experiences. Not only was I getting a different perspective, clarity, and different energy, but I was having a parallel experience that has business implications.

As I was up climbing, 40 or 50 feet off the ground, looking at tricks and obstacles that I had never done before, I realized sometimes you just have to take the next step. I could sit there and overthink how I was going to get across a suspended mini cable from one side to the other. I could sit there and analyze how I was going to cross a chasm with rotating balls or moving platforms, but at some point, I just had to start moving and take the next step and learn and figure it out as I go.

One of the great benefits of this particular situation was I was protected. I was strapped into a harness with safety cables so it would be virtually impossible to harm myself, but it was still scary and there was always the chance of falling, getting cuts or scrapes, maybe even a break. For the most part, I wasn’t going to die. It was hard work and hard effort to get across that chasm, but I did and it taught me the something. Sometimes in business, you just have to take that next step. You just have to move forward. Once you start moving forward, things will happen, things will fall into place. People will see your momentum and things will develop.

What’s been your experience? Have you ever had one of these overwhelming experiences where it was difficult to get going? How did you move through it? How did you process it? What lessons did it teach you? Join us in the comments below and let us know about your thoughts and experience.

Farm It Out and Don’t Worry

Posted on: September 9th, 2017 by R. Shawn McBride No Comments

We talk a lot about delegation on our blog.   We encourage it. We think it’s critical to business growth that owners get others involved in the business and they focus on what they do best. I was recently on a listserv where people were asking me for advice on accounting. One of the lawyers told the other lawyer, just farm it out and don’t worry about it.

While the idea of delegating the accounting for a lawyer makes perfect sense, not worrying about it is a mistake. Regardless of what’s going on in your business, you do need to worry about it, particularly on financial matters. There’s a lot of fraud out there. People could be using your information incorrectly. It could be the cause of future problems and huge financial losses. Farm it out, yes. Don’t worry, no. Do worry.

How do you deal with this? How do you delegate and make sure that things are still done properly? It’s called internal controls. It’s a basic accounting concept that you need to have systems and processes in place to give checks and balances, to make sure that no one employee has too much power, to make sure that things are spotted before they become big problems. You’ll want to implement control systems and processes. We’ll visit more about those in future blogs, but the important point is this. Develop the processes and procedures, but don’t trust. Don’t trust completely. Make sure that you know what’s going on in the business and that you as the owner are maintaining responsibility for what happens.

Planning Does Not Have To Be Boring

Posted on: September 8th, 2017 by R. Shawn McBride No Comments

R. Shawn McBride recently spoke about planning and how it can be fun to reach your goals.

Hey, folks, it’s Shawn with you here today. Talking about the fact that planning doesn’t have to be boring. If you have friends who think that planning is boring, you need to forward this message to them. We need to break out of this mold.

Planning can be fun because planning is all about achieving dreams, and it’s a path to get where we’re going. So, without that, we’re going to go in the same direction. You know when I talk to CEO groups, I challenge them about their 10-year plans and what they’re doing, and sometimes the CEOs of companies don’t have 10-year plans. And you know what happens when you don’t have a plan? You execute a one-year plan and then a one-year plan, and you do that 10 times and you end up in a completely unexpected place.

But, if you have a detailed plan, it’s like having a compass with you. You’ll stay on course much better. You’ll know where you’re headed and what you’re directing. The fun part of planning is watching those things come together. Really thinking about what you want, thinking about how you’re going to be able to do it, building those dreams and then executing and for organizations when we get a bunch of individuals working on their individual plans. But with a team goal, we get so much energy in organizations.

What we talk about in The 3 Laws of Empowerment in High Growth Companies, is we want people executing on their plans and we want people doing great things. The more they are thinking, the more they are executing on a path, the more they’re doing and they will do things that are great for them.

I’m also going to do things that are great for the organization which opens up a world of opportunity for everyone. So, I want people thinking in terms of planning. I want them thinking about the fun side of it, the goal attainment, the mission critical things, and doing more with your life. Really you get one life to live, are you living it the right way are you doing the things you want to do? And, having the right plan is going to enable you to do more things you want to do in life.

So, planning can be fun. It can be getting to the top of that mountain either figuratively or literally. Some people want to climb a mountain and planning is the type of thing that allows you to do that.

So how are you doing on your plans? If this is something that’s an issue for you, check out the McBride For Business blog or the McBride Attorney’s blog. Both of them talk about planning and different issues within planning and how to really build plans and protect yourself. McBride For Business YouTube channel has lots of good videos for you that can help you get there. And, like the R. Shawn McBride public page, because we’re talking about these issues constantly and advancing thought in there. So I want to get this community going, I want more people involved and I want all of us like-minded people helping each other.

So, come join our community and be part of it. And, if I can help you, let me know. Download your business evaluation sheet.Then write to me about what you’re facing and let me know how I can help you or your organizations do more. I would love to be part of your plan. I would love to help some people that are action minded, getting things done. Those are my type of people. R. Shawn McBride signing off. Talk to you soon.

Dealing with the Messy

Posted on: September 8th, 2017 by R. Shawn McBride No Comments

You’ve probably seen the famous photo of Albert Einstein’s desk at the date of his death. If you’re familiar with this, you’ll know that a lot of entrepreneurs live messy lives. Growing your business leads to messes. I think that maybe one of the reasons there’s a correlation is that entrepreneurs can work through messy. They understand that not everything is going to go neat and easy, and there’s going to be times in your business where things are completely disrupted.

Now, I’m not a proponent of having your desk look like Albert Einstein’s, particularly if you have clients coming to visit, but what you should be doing as an entrepreneur is making sure that you understand there’ll be periods of disruption and dishevel. As your business grows, changes and evolves, there’ll be times where not everything is going to happen neatly. Your systems and processes that we’ve talked so much about, are going to get tested. At times, they’re going to fail, and you’re going to have to put stopgaps in place, but if you keep focused on the end result and keep focused on what you’re doing, you’ll be able to make great progress, and you’ll be able to evolve your business.

Don’t focus on the neatness or the clarity, focus on the result. Keep your eye on the big picture and know that period of messy are part of the process, and they are perfectly okay. If you’re growing, you’re changing. Sometimes that change is not going to happen neatly. Not everything is going to be ready at the moment something changes, but you can deal with it, and that’s one of the keys to entrepreneurial success.

What’s been your experience with dealing with the messy? Have you struggled with it? How have you gotten through it? What strategies have you used? Join us in the comments below and let us know your experiences.

Build Employees to Replace You So You Can Do Even More Profitable Activities

Posted on: September 7th, 2017 by R. Shawn McBride No Comments

R. Shawn McBride recently spoke about training your employees to replace you so you can do more profitable activities.

Hey, there. Shawn here with you. Talking about how to rev up your profits by getting your employees to replace you. Simple philosophy in concept, harder in execution, but I think all of us as business owners should be thinking about having employees replace us to take over our roles so that we can move to a higher role. And this works if you’re within an organization if you’re a corporate employee thinking about how to move to the next level, but it also works if you’re a business owner.

How do you delegate the functions that you’re doing and how do you get your employees to replace you? Now, some people might take the scare tactic. They’re afraid of getting employees that are too powerful, that knows too much. But the good employees, the really great ones, they want to advance, they’re going to want to move up the food chain and you’re got to let them do that because if you don’t let them do it in your organization, they’re going to find an organization where they can. They want to be that intellectually stimulated; they want that challenge.

So we want to find these great people. And what we want to do is we want to be constantly training them, giving them all the skills we have, give them all the knowledge we have, complete download to the employees of everything you know as you can, as you’re working on projects, as you’re doing things together, you want to teach them everything you know. You’re not holding back, you are really teaching them your craft, what you know, and the full extent of it. And the limits of your knowledge too, because you’re not going to know everything and when you teach people stuff, it’s scary because you’re going to have to admit you don’t know some things and you’re taking some chances. But you want a full download because you want that employee to step up to take your role.

And what does that mean? You want to replace yourself. An employee then replaces you, and then as you get replaced, you can move to a higher level, you can do something different, you can do something more beneficial to the company, and you can free-up time for creation, for new ideas, for innovation, for things that you haven’t had time to do. So always be thinking about getting yourself replaced. I know it’s scary and you’re going to have to find something to fill that void, but as this process becomes natural, you’re going to see a lot of growth, both in yourself and your organization.

I’m R. Shawn McBride. If this is resonating with you, check out the McBride for Business YouTube channel, subscribe. Like the R. Shawn McBride public page on Facebook; lots of great videos like this. We have a community that coalesces around these types of issues and we want to support you. Certainly, we want to know what questions you have.

Subscribe to the blog; we have McBride for Business and McBride Attorneys. Get your valuation checklist at McBride for Business. These are all the things we can do to help you. And if I can come in and help you one-on-one with strategy or coaching or working with your organization, reach out. I would love to do some keynoting, training, really help you step to the next level.

Get those employees where they can replace their supervisors and free the supervisors to do the next things and free your business owners to do great things. Big, big things with your business. So R. Shawn McBride, signing off. I’m going to talk with all of you very soon.

Managing Your Time After a Major Disruption (Like a Hurricane)

Posted on: September 7th, 2017 by R. Shawn McBride No Comments

R. Shawn McBride and Shannon J. Gregg spoke about planning after a major disruption such as a hurricane.

Shannon: Hey so I’m live here today with R. Shawn McBride. We’re pretty excited getting ready for the radio show tomorrow.

R. Shawn McBride: Yes, we’re here in Austin, Texas. We’re at Bank S & B and actually, we’re going to be appearing tonight and helping some folks with our book “It’s About Time” in their business management but we keep getting a question over and over again.

Shannon: So the question that we keep getting is how do you manage your time after a major event like a hurricane?

R. Shawn McBride: Right so obviously we’re here in Texas, you know, I’m Dallas based and we’ve had a major disruption down in Houston. And a lot of people have asked what do you do about time management when something like that completely wipes everything out? And our advice is the first step is to reassess where you’re at. You know, figure out where you’re at, figure out where you want to go but realistically you need to take inventory. Obviously, your personal safety and security are first. Make sure you have everything under control. Make sure that you have food, have supplies for your family, all the basics. Then we’re going to go back into time management like we would normally do. We’re going to think about what we want to do next. What are our priorities and we’re really going to set our goals and our goals may have shifted greatly because of an event like this.

Shannon: Absolutely. So just to reiterate – take stock, think about where you are now and then think about where you want to go and prioritize those things and really, really focus on your safety. Our thoughts clearly are with everybody in Houston and in the future. We’re really looking with all of our thoughts to everybody in Florida. So, make sure you’re prepared. Make lists because they’re really helpful.

R. Shawn McBride: Yeah and that’s one thing too. I mean obviously, we get the question now after Houston, what do we do? Florida or other places might be affected by the next hurricane or some future event. It’s always good to have ideas about what your plan is. You know, contact numbers, locations where people might go to in a disruption, obviously have emergency supplies on hand. We’re hearing about water shortages and other things in Florida. So, you know, managing your time is important and that’s usually more of a productivity type thing but in situations like this, the number one thing is safety right. Take care of yourself, protect yourself, live for the future and then we can start assessing really what are our goals? Where are we going and where are we going next? This is one of those cases where really being present, making sure that you’re taking care of yourself and your family becomes number one and then everything else. And we certainly feel for all the people that have been disrupted. We’ve seen the horrible pictures. We know a lot of people are preparing for potential emergency down in Florida. So, really, really stick to the basics at this point. Then start thinking bigger and obviously, you know, we’re here to support and help. If you’ve been disrupted by the hurricane, reach out to us. We are willing to help and otherwise, let’s build big things and let’s help each other so we can help others when they need us in the future.

Shannon: Stay safe everybody.

R. Shawn McBride: Alright. Talk to you guys soon.

Profits in Partnerships

Posted on: September 6th, 2017 by R. Shawn McBride No Comments

R. Shawn McBride recently spoke about profits in partnerships.

Hey everyone, Shawn here with you. I want to talk today about profits in partnerships. It’s something I’ve been talking about in different ways for a long time and I honestly believe there are huge profits to be made in partnerships.

When we look at some of the biggest most successful companies, they were all partnerships at different times. And there are reasons why we keep seeing partnerships do great things because we’re combining unique skills, we’re doing unique things in a way that’s very powerful for the business. Each of us has limitations. So, of course, we talk about building teams and a lot of us can build teams within a single owner business. You get people working for you. But there’s something very unique about getting multiple people working together on a venture and doing things that are uniquely done, but they’re both motivated by ownership so it’s very unusual and powerful when you can combine these correctly. And that is the key is combining them correctly to make profits in partnerships.

So, what I want to be talking about in upcoming videos and what we’ll be exploring is how to really build good partnerships. You’ll see many videos that I do talk about how do, we get the right partners together. That is the first step.

How do we get a good partnership agreement? And then once we’re up and running, how do we keep things ebbing and flowing, updating our buy and sell, continuing the company, keeping things running? There’s a lot of pieces in a successful partnership.

It does require work and maintenance, just like buying a wonderful car. You’re going to have to stop and do maintenance along the way. You’re going to have to take it in and get the oil changed. You’re going to have to rotate the tires. You’re going to have to get the brakes replaced at some point. If you don’t do these kinds of basic maintenance and routine things, you’re going to crash into a wall and your beautiful car’s going to be gone.

Same with your partnership. If you don’t do the maintenance and you don’t do the work along the way, you don’t build it correctly at the beginning, you don’t maintain it as you go; you are going to destroy your partnership.

But if you invest the time, the energy, the work, you can see tremendous growth and that’s what we’re going to be talking about is how to profit in partnership, how to build something bigger, how to do something amazing with yourself and your business.

So, stay tuned. Visit the R. Shawn McBride page on Facebook, R. Shawn McBride fans and audiences, like it, follow it, share it with your friends – become a part of the community. Let them become part of the community. Discuss these ideas among yourselves. McBride for Business YouTube channel.

Get your business valuation checklist at McBride for Business. Make sure you download that and have that. And then there are blogs at McBride For Business.com and McBrideAttorneys.com. Read them, get tons of ideas and contents; build your business to the next level. Then reach out to me and let me know how I can help you. I want to sit down with you one on one, come in and coach your groups, do some training, keynotes, whatever is necessary to get you to the next level. Implement these principles of preparing, planning, protecting, and building more.

So, let’s start working hard today guys, profits in partnerships, build them right. I’m giving you tools and resources. Let me know what’s missing. Let me know what you need. Reach out to me. I will talk with you soon. R. Shawn McBride signing off.

Do You Need A Business Plan to Start a Business?

Posted on: September 6th, 2017 by R. Shawn McBride No Comments

My recommendation is, if you are starting a business, that yes indeed you do need a business plan. Now, the level of formality of your plan may change with time. Early in the days of your business, you may need a very informal plan. You certainly want to have a clear vision and a dream of where you’re going. You want to know clearly what your business is going to look like in 10 years. How you’re going to be spending your time and how you’re going to be earning your revenue. It is critical that the owner stops and thinks about these types of issues and understands what things look like in the future because not thinking about the future can lead to unintended consequences.

From there, the business plan will start to evolve. If you use the dreams process that I so often talk about, you start with that dream. Then you are related to steps. Then you evaluate how those steps fit together. You adjust those steps to fit together. Then you modify that plan as needed.

In the early days of your business, it will be unrealistic to have a very broad business plan. As the business evolves, you can add formality to the plan. Add additional details. Work out fine points. This will certainly become necessary if you start to approach investors or bring in business partners. The key here is to indeed have plans. Know where you’re going. Know what you’re trying to accomplish. You can modify the formality of it with time, going from the early days where the plan is really just a vision with some steps around it to the later days when the business becomes very, very, systematic and process oriented with a detailed vision and plan of where it’s going.

What’s been your experience with planning? How has planning worked for you? Join us in the comments below and let us know your thoughts and experience.

Community Giving Away Information

Posted on: September 5th, 2017 by R. Shawn McBride No Comments

R. Shawn McBride recently spoke about giving away valuable information about business to the public.

Hey everyone, Shawn here. For those of you who don’t me, I want to tell you how my communities work online. I am all about giving, giving, giving. I’ve adopted the philosophy of, I want to deliver as much value as I can in every format I can. There’s really no holding back. I have so much information that I’ve learned over the years to help businesses. I want to get people where they want to go as fast as they possibly can.

And so now, I’ve created a lot of content online, blogs, information, stuff that we’re seeing about the planning process. Everything I do is about planning, helping successful private business owners stand the test of time building their business. So I get to see a lot of different aspects of business, why plans work, why they don’t work and how to execute. And so I’m bringing all of that to you in these communities and I’m putting out information. I’m sharing as much as I can in general terms to help all of us lift our businesses to the next level.

So I’d love to see you as part of our communities, join in, go to the McBride for Business YouTube channel. Like the R. Shawn McBride fan page on Facebook. Both of those channels is where I provide a lot of videos and information and of course the McBride for Business blog and the McBride Attorneys blog. It’s all about sharing and getting information out. And I want you to share this, there’s got to be other business owners you know that need information that want to do more in business. Share with them, let them know, let them know what we’re doing here and make them become part of our community. We can all help each other do more.

And of course, I’m there for those very custom needs that you have. If you really need somebody to jump in and work with your plan, you need that kind of advice, I’m here for you. If you want to step things up to the next level with your business, I’m here to consult. If you’ve got legal plans you need, I may be able to help with that through my law firm. Let me know how I can help you to achieve the things that you want to achieve in your business and do more. So, let me know.

And I want to give as much free value as I can in these communities, you’re going to see lots of videos. There are already some up there, there’s more, more, more coming. Just keep looking, get your friends involved; let’s really build this community. Let me help as many people as I can, and I want to help you, so if you have questions, send them to me. Let’s talk about how I can help, whether it’s answering an informal question to a video online, some custom 101 coaching, coming out and speaking to your group, whatever you need, let’s tailor something to you. I’m R. Shawn McBride, I’m going to be talking to you very, very soon.
