My favorite place? Seminarland! I just returned from the Pumper & Cleaner Profit Series with Jeff Bruss in Orlando, Florida. What a lovely group of contractors. We laughed, we cried…and expanded business and personal success. (Thanks, Jeff! You are a super marketer and businessman, and put on a first class event.)
I love to hang out with folks after my program and debrief our time together. This is the moment that we inevitably discover a common friend: Frank Blau. Frank’s teaching runs like a river through so many successful businesses. My new friend, David Williams, shares what Frank did for him and his business.
A Few Frank-isms…
- Understand your worth. Frank says, “The true problem in business is a self esteem problem.”
- Learn accounting and financial basics. “Crunch the numbers. Charge what you need to charge to cover all your costs, make a professional salary and create a healthy profit.”
- Ignore your competition. “Don’t be a lemming and follow those knuckleheads off the cliff.”
- Listen more and talk less. “God gave you two ears and one mouth for a reason.”
Thanks, Frank! We love you. And there is more love to come! Stay tuned for the announcement of the book – The Life and Legacy of Frank J. Blau, Jr.
