In this segment of Dirty Secrets of Small Business, Jack Mencini and Adam Sonnhalter want the owners of small businesses to make the tough decisions and ask these questions for 2017:
- Who should be your clients?
- Who should you fire from your team?
- Are you in control of your business?
- What customers should you fire?
As business coaches, Jack and Adam help small business owners with these tough decisions through their coaching business, Maximum Value Partners.
Fire a customer this year who isn’t making you profitable. One way to get rid of the nagging customer is to raise prices with them. Either they will leave or pay the extra allotment which will help the business be more profitable.
Also, Jack and Adam highly advise putting a marketing plan together to focus on the potential customers you want to target. This is within their 7 Keys to Success and has worked tremendously for hundreds of their clients who follow this plan.
