A Great Approach

I was copied on an update from Robert Kyslinger from Houston to his HTG16 comrades reviewing his goal progress for the quarter. Good update - and great work by him and his team. A common theme from our HTG members - execution. But the real message comes in the last line of his email.

"I’ve chosen not to participate in the recession. No matter what happens to the economy, somebody is making money and that organization needs our (yours and mine) services to keep them growing."

So much of what happens in business comes as a result of our approach and attitude. When we stay positive and focus on the good things that can happen, we get that result. Robert sets a great tone for all of us to consider as we face some rather difficult times. What is your approach to things? Do you focus on the positive or the negative? Attitude makes a huge difference.

I couldn't agree more with Robert K. There are a lot of problems out there in the financial world. The continued media blitz of failure after failure has evolved into a massive case of hypochondria for many healthy businesses. We have many clients whose businesses are healthy yet they are slowly trying to worry themselves ‘sick’. In a time when many service providers are lowering prices, we’re keeping ours the same and including more features and benefits in our services. Our intent is to push forward and drive more revenue and have our clients be stickier than ever. See you next month!

Arlin, this is a great example of what HTG is about. There are still a wealth of opportunity out there, we just need to look for it. 80% of success is just showing up.
