Turnaround King – Outstanding Case Studies on Business
At Blackball Online Marketing we always try to share information we think valuable for your business. While channel surfing on the good old local cable network this past weekend, I came across a show which I feel is a homerun. The Turnaround King is about a business specialist who analyzes businesses that have either gone astray or lack direction or focus and have fallen on hard times.
I have always been a fan of preventive maintenance. It takes a lot less energy to maintain and sharpen business practices and worker’s skills than it does to retrain or hire new ones. The tips offered by Grant Cardone are solid fundamental advice for any business including ours, which is what drew my attention in the first place.
The tagline on the National Geographic Channel reads “Sales expert Grant Cardone helps struggling businesses turn things around and get back on their feet by giving the business owners the tools for success.” The two pilot episodes are amazing to watch as I can see many small businesses falling into the same mindset as the owners featured. These problems are universal for small business which is some of the appeal.
The theme for the auto dealer episode is about small business owners who have been operating for years and have lost the ability or drive to aggressively target new opportunities and adopt new technologies. They, as small business owners, are not alone. We live in a fast paced business climate and seasoned businesses can become complacent. Here’s the video excerpt from this program.
Another episode deals with a family owned franchise of a gym. Grant offers some sage advice when the owners get caught up in competing based on price rather than selling their unique proposition; the amenities and strength of a solid training and support staff. High energy goes a long way provided it’s aimed in the right direction and Grant gives a shot in the arm to this business by offering proven methodologies and a great game plan for revitalization of the business. You can view the preview video here.
I’m already looking forward to the next episode and hopefully after reading this you are too. We are constantly seeking sound advice as we realize there are so many things that we can be better at.
