You're not alone!

Do you really understand the big secret why most start-ups FAIL while most franchises SUCCEED?

Let me explain...

Every year, over 500,000 people start a business... ... Yet, within one year, 40% are out of business. Within five years, more than 80% fail!

But listen to this!

  • You don't have to own a franchise to use this secret!
  • You don't have to be a CEO.
  • You don't have to be a manager.

This one secret. which I will reveal in a minute, works in even the simplest jobs. So, why do so few people FAIL to use the secret?

Read on!

But, can you really learn from other's experience?

"Experience is a dear teacher, and only fools will learn from no other."
-- Benjamin Franklin

Besides courage and vision, what accounts for business success -- and how can YOU use it? What is the real secret behind the consistent success of the Oakland Raiders, Intel, McDonald's, Subway, Midas, San Francisco 49ers, Chem-Dry, Applied Materials, Walgreen's ...

What is the secret behind their consistent success in products and services? What can we learn from their success? Here's a clue:

"The measure of success is not whether you have a tough problem to deal with, but whether it is the same problem you had last year."
-- John Foster Dulles

Why don't more people use this secret that works for McDonald's, Intel, Bank of America, and many other successful businesses around the world? Do they struggle to solve the same problem they had last year? Why do most people fail to learn from others?

Results Effectively Reproduced!

Mike, Your PVT eZine is a refreshing start to my Monday mornings. I look forward to the useful tips and find my self thinking more about results that can be effectively reproduced through proper organization and documentation.

The simple truth about this secret ...

This "secret," which you learned in grade school, is as plain as day, but it might as well be secret. Why? Because people fail to learn - even ignore, even resist - how others use this secret in their job, career, or business. Why? Because many people suffer the NIH Syndrome (the "Not Invented Here Syndrome").

Anyway, on this site you can learn from how to use this grade school "secret" (writing!!) for your own success, such as:

  • How to use writing to secure and protect your proprietary techniques and processes.
  • How to use writing to develop an Organizational Strategy that works for your business or department.
  • How to use writing to avoid overwhelm from information overload ... missing data and reports ... lost customers ... ambiguous communication ... sloppy logistics - stuff not in the right place at the right time ... cluttered desks, buildings, and equipment ...
  • How to use writing to develop a SYSTEM that eliminates excuses and embarrassment?
  • Simplified ways to use writing to help you eliminate bottlenecks and isolate problems.
  • How to use writing to avoid mismanagement of resources, such as, actions out of sequence ... working on the wrong things ... confusion ... employees focussed on trivial problems while ignoring important areas ...
  • How to use writing to avoid the pitfalls of what I call, "Vanishing Technology."
  • How to use writing to minimize frustrations like: Staffers who get embroiled in bureaucratic turmoil, disconnected from your organization and its goals ... Meetings and events that start late and ramble aimlessly forever ... Employee resentment that festers into covert sabotage.
  • How to use writing to avoid 15 expensive mistakes in developing your business documentation.
  • And much more.

Please read my 16 free articles without obligation (I'll give you the link in a few seconds). You'll get this valuable information without annoying pop-ups, aggravating ads, or infuriating spam.

Priceless advice...No gooblegook.

I look forward to Mike's weekly eZine because he always presents valuable ideas clearly and concisely. Words are his business and he's a master at the craft.

That would be meaningless of course if his insights weren't equally as valuable. Mike's approach reduces the theoretical to the practical. His Ten Page MBA and his articles on Organizational Strategy are priceless advice and instructions on how to organize a new business or reorganize an established business.

No gooblegook, just a straight forward easy to understand and apply set of directions. I keep both handy and reread them often as I apply them to my own fast growing business.

OK Mike, what's the catch?

People often ask, "Why do you give so much valuable information free on your website."

Well, I've spent a small fortune and many years to learn what I've learned (and continue to learn) from the best of the best. While I could never give back, I can give forward, based on the dictum, "Give and ye shall receive."

That's why my free articles and the Profitable Venture Tactics eZine are always comprehensive, always FREE (RETAIL VALUE $179/year). I have other products, services, and workshops that you may wish to buy to increase your knowledge and business success. But the Profitable Venture Tactics eZine will always be FREE.

You may have doubts...

But, read these comments from readers like you.

"Please keep me on this list and I look forward to some more good stuff to help me become more effective."

"The power of [your] questions is that, while answers generally stop us from thinking, questions can point our brains in more useful directions. I am changing my questions to things like: How can I make this work? What is needed to make this work? What people / resources need to be combined / considered to make this work? How do I facilitate that? How can this be done in a way that makes my job more fun, rewarding, easier, etc. How can I make this work in spite of its ill conceived beginnings?"
-- DH, Manufacturing
