Although, due to the Pandemic, much in-person communication has been halted, digital communication is on the rise in conjunction with a desire, through any means possible, to create and preserve art. There is still creativity in the city and you see it on building all over. This means of checking in has not shut down. This expression is a sign that we can save NYC together.
And then there are the digital artists. How are they doing? Like it or not it is a digital domain. So artists are communicating that way as well. Hence DIYdigi and friends:
The sooner your outlook gets close to this, the closer you are to join the big leagues. Depending on the products or services that you have aligned yourself with, there will always be competition. The good new is that being smaller can be sometimes good in these circumstances because you are not weighed down as the big companies. You can move more quickly than they can because you have less to lose.
Invest in Your Next Venture
You have new ideas, new energy and are not held back by old ideas. You need to introduce new ideas, get financed, and then with the money you make invest it into your next idea and so one. You want to have multiple things all working together somehow. In some instances it may make sense to sell some of these companies to make even more money to be invested in your next venture.
Bringing it to Your Arena
You need to become an innovator, more and more so as you get higher and higher up in the rungs of starting, selling and buying businesses. Sometimes you’re sell your businesses and other times you will purchase those of other people. It’s all based in how you can innovate. How you can see relationships between things. For example, you can see in another industry an idea that can be brought into your own arena.
Searching for the Big Deals
Learn from how other businesses are both working and failing and apply this to your own companies. At this stage of the game you are a millionaire many times over and are looking for the big deals, the life changing ones.
Setting Your Prices
To get the contracts for your company you must recall that first and foremost you are a solution. You solve problems for people. And the better you can do that, the more successful you will be, especially if you can offer to other businesses, the same result they are paying for, by showing them you can do it for half and do it better.
You Have Entered a Higher Realm
Invest in everything that makes sense to invest in. Trust your instincts but also do the numbers carefully. In this higher realm. When reaching this stage millions upon missions are small fry. Because, at least on paper, you are a billionaire. A lot to take in? A lot to have to create? If so, don’t give up yet. We wanted in this chapter to give you a realistic overview of the “reality” of what it will be like and how you can process is.
I was helping out a company today with refining their mission. It doesn’t matter what kind of business you have or entrepreneurial venture that you have embarked on. You need a mission.
Components of Your Mission
A mission states your purpose and defines you goals for the customer or client. It is actually much more than that, which if we had more time to work on this blog we would give you a list of components.
A mission is a promise that you make to your client regarding the ways you are going to serve them and be consistent about. Have you written your mission?
Our last post was on Friday and it is now Monday. We have decided (at least at the moment) of being like other people and take the weekends off. It is interesting to note that you get, at least for us, a feeling of disconnect in terms of the process. It is almost as if we have to get our chops back up, despite only being away from the process for just a few days.
What it is About
We should mention that this past week as been the start of us writing an eBook about – what else -marketing. Specifically marketing during this time of the pandemic and violence in our New York City neighborhoods. It is marketing made for an uncertain world by focusing on “Cause Marketing” that is marketing that gets its message across in cause oriented way.
We worked all last week, each morning early for Monday through Friday, ending up with the equivalent of one fourth of the work for the eBook. To be more specific, we are writing just 500 words per weekday, or 2,500 words per week and 10,000 words per month. 10,000 is the smallest amount possible for a nonfiction eBook. Though, we can’t help it, and are ending up with more than just 500 words per day.
Possible Long Term Plan
Our ambition, if the first eBook goes over well, is to write a new eBook each month and either make them available on a third party site or possibly eventually get an eCommerce location on one of our participating blogs in the Blog Coalition.
