An Entrepreneur’s Atmosphere 

I came across this article recently that really hit home.

The gist of the article was how people who are driven, passionate and successful are often alone.

There have definitely been times over the last decade that I have been my own boss that I’ve felt alone.

However, most of the time I’m not alone. I have always worked hard to surrounded myself with people who get what it meas to be successful. Ones with a great work ethic, have a vision and possess integrity.

So when I read the article, which the above quote is a paraphrase of, I felt the need to share it and explain what it means to me.

“The energy we carry, the personality traits we possess and the atmosphere that create on life are hard to understand by the average person.” Let’s break this one down.

“The energy we carry” is what drives us to do what many people look upon as crazy choices. Working 100 hours a week so we dont have to work 40. Leaving a stable salary and managed healthcare benefits. Walking away from a routine, where we know what we have to do everyday without many surprises. These choices give us an energy that is hard to understand unless you live it yourself.

“The personality traits we possess” is what makes us successful. We are persistent, we don’t give up and we have a deep faith in our ability to make a difference. Many people in our lives are quick to tell us their opinion, but few actually have the experience to make that opinion one we should listen to. Not a judgement, but a fact.

Most of us are surrounded by people we love dearly, but they are probably not the best ones to be taking advice about how to run a business from. CEO’s of big companies have boards of advisors. Small business owners generally do not.

“The atmosphere we create” is what happens when someone who is always “working” walks in the room. We never have a lack of things to do, we see opportunities in everything and we know the value of always moving forward. This makes us seem impatient, distant and unrelatable to many who know us.

So this leads me back to the central theme of joining masterminds and surrounding yourself with leaders and doers and people of action.

It is the best way to meet the challenge of being alone.

It’s an Entrepreneur’s Life for Me

I came across this article recently that really hit home.

The gist of the article was how people who are driven, passionate and successful are often alone.

There have definitely been times over the last decade that I have been my own boss that I’ve felt alone.

However, most of the time I’m not alone. I have always worked hard to surrounded myself with people who get what it meas to be successful. Ones with a great work ethic, have a vision and possess integrity.

So when I read the article, which the above quote is a paraphrase of, I felt the need to share it and explain what it means to me.

“Not everyone is going to understand how you mind works.” This is 100% accurate. Most of the people in my life have a job. They don’t get what it means to want to work 100 hours a week so I don’t have to work 40. The freedom that comes with being self-employed makes it like most of the time I’m not even working. Teaching, training, going to meetings, conference calls, etc… they rarely feel like work. They feel like me living the life I was destined to live.

You’d think most people who think that is cool and it would inspire them as well. But it doesn’t.

Sometimes I’ve been able to impact people and move them forward towards being a successful business owner, but most of them thank me for my time and thoughts, and then go back to the life they know. “There are many people out there who are willing to settle for less.”

Now this is not a judgement by any means, its just a fact. I was like that for most of my life. I didn’t really think about doing my own thing until I was 40. I never saw it as settling, just doing what I thought was the best way to provide for my family. It wasn’t until I got to a level of expertise in my field (analytics) that I rediscovered my passion for teaching and found a way to merge the two.

Now as I do what I do, its with a great amount of “intense” passion. I live it. That scare people. It shouldn’t, but it does. People have so many forces working against them to keep them in place. It’s not easy to throw off the yoke, and break free into the world of entrepreneurship.

So this leads me back to the central theme of joining masterminds and surrounding yourself with leaders and doers and people of action.

It is the best way to meet the challenge of being alone.

Making a Mastermind Successful — Part 2

At this point in my career, I’ve had enough experience with masterminds to know what makes them work and what doesn’t. As we launch Mastermind PH next week, I want to make sure everyone who signs up is signing up for the right reasons.

Having spent most of the past decade doing business in the Philippines, I’ve got volumes of experience to draw on.

Mastermind PH marks my 7th business venture in my adopted country since 2011. The first one failed spectacularly, the next two based on learning the ropes through hard knocks did ok. But by the 4th go around I got the formula right and enjoyed massive success.

So lucky #7 will have every reason to succeed. Why do I feel so confident? Because it’s a business mastermind forged out of everything that came before it and everyone that contributed (good & bad) to getting me to where I’m now at… the sweet spot.

I’m also in the right place at the right time. A lot of great ideas and business plans here in the Philippines misfire because of not being in the right place at the right time. Over the years spent here, having worked with the hundreds of businesses and the thousands of Filipinos in my circle, the biggest challenge to success I see is the broke brother in law concept. If you are Filipino, it’s a concept akin to the “crab mentality”.

If you are surrounded by people whose only goal is to keep everyone down in the miserable place they are, you will fail. Stop taking advice from people who are never gonna be as successful as you plan to be. You need to leave them behind and get signed up to be part of a business mastermind.

Now as a recap for those who hadn’t heard of the term business mastermind before, a mastermind group is a peer-to-peer mentoring concept used to help members solve their problems with input and advice from the other group members.

The concept was coined in 1925 by author Napoleon Hill described in more detail in his 1937 book, Think and Grow Rich. Find the book, the audiotape or do a google search. If you truly want to Think and Grow Rich, it all starts here!

So to help me build my first mastermind in the Philippines I’m looking for Filipinos from a certain mold. The goal is not just to sign them up to be in my mastermind, but to get each one to a point where they can run their own mastermind as well.

I’ve learned from two of the best in the business, Bill Walsh & Michael Silvers. I’ve set up a couple of masterminds in Central Florida. I know Napoleon Hills concept down. And I’m part of one of the biggest, baddest, most accomplished mastermind groups out there, Powerteam International’s Win Global Mastermind.

So to summarize my point… the 3 biggest reasons I know Mastermind PH will be a huge success; adaptability, market awareness and being surrounded by people who make me better.

Starting up a new business can be incredibly difficult. After all, it takes a lot more than a great idea and a pocket full of dreams in order to disrupt markets and generate success.

New entrepreneurs need access to capital, mentoring and structural resources in order to prosper. But sometimes those lifelines seem nearly impossible to track down — which is why nine out of ten startups shrivel up and die within three years.

Business Accelerators are designed to prevent those premature deaths. At this meeting we will discuss how to find the right business accelerator for your small business.

How To Use Data To Make a Business More Profitable

I’m often asked how investing in analytics will make a small business more profitable?

In my answer, I often quote a few data points from a study of 400 companies that the consulting firm Bain conducted. They found the companies with the most developed analytics capabilities commanded a larger market share. In addition, they were twice as likely to be in their sector’s top 25% for profitability, and five times more likely to make swifter decisions than competitors. Considering these statistics, businesses that are not exploiting the potential of big data analytics are certain to fall behind.

Sometimes I mention a study by the University of Texas that analyzed data sets from Fortune 1000 corporations and measured the impact data analytics had on profits. Some notable findings included:

  • Companies could increase profit by more than $2 billion a year by making just 10% of available data usable.
  • Return on equity increased by 16% by making data more accessible.
  • When advanced reporting was deployed, return on investment increased by 0.7% — which is equal to $2.87 million in additional revenue.
  • Most importantly, a comparably low investment in data analytics was required to produce these significant gains.

But just quoting a bunch of statistics is far from compelling.

That’s one of the challenges of “selling” big data solutions to small businesses. All the stats are not very relatable.

It takes time to get to know a business in a way that a tailored solution can be designed. Every business uses data differently, so no two solutions are the same.

That is why I walk entrepreneurs, small business owners and leaders through an assessment. With this we link hinderances in their analytics process to solutions that mitigate the hinderances. We can also look for technologies to optimize the storage, analysis and presentation of data. Only then can we set targets to achieve the benefits mentioned in the Bain and UT studies.

And for me that is both satisfying as business coach and fun as a data nerd.

Building Businesses By Doing Things Many Don’t Do

Early in my career, I realized that I had a very in-demand skill, something that people really needed in the business. I knew how to use Microsoft Excel. The ability to make spreadsheets and turn them into reports and to do analysis, surprisingly, was something I had a natural talent for.

It’s actually quite amusing to think how my entire career trajectory benefited from my innate ability makes sense of large files of numbers in a speadsheet. I was able to start doing that on a regular basis, making reports and doing different types of business analysis work that added a lot of value to the bank. Making sure we targeted the marketing of our products to specific, much more likely to buy, geographic and demographic groups accelerated the adoption rate and drove up cross sell of additional products.

Before I knew it I had a 15 year career with Wells Fargo and in that time, I got to do all kinds of analytics from end to end. Bringing in new data, structuring it, putting it in databases, and figuring out how to extract insight and report to senior management was something I got really, really good at.

After years of great experiences, working on huge data science projects and working across various teams to roll out complex analytics solutions. So, after doing that for the bank, I went into business myself as an analytics expert. I’ve spent the last decade working with a wide range of companies helping them level up their use of data.

Now, I am working small business owner and entrepreneurs as Icoach them into how to look at their data the same way Wells Fargo looks at its data. I help them implement analytics systems and processes — solutions that will help them mimic what the big successful multinational companies are doing with their data —so then they can be more competitive. That opportunity to coach them and give them a chance to be successful is what’s driving me.

It all starts with a commitment to start doing things that most other businesses aren’t doing very well or even at all.

Has the Philippines BPO Industry Lost It’s Edge?

Just read Tholons latest paper on Digital Disruption: http://www.tholons.com/pdf/TSGI%20Report%202017.pdf

As if things aren’t gonna be hard enough, the BPO industry here in the Philippines is not evolving fast enough. The tidal wave of digital disruption is not something we are adequately prepared for.

Although we are #3 overall when it comes to countries in a position to continue to benefit from globalization, being one of the top countries is by no means assured.

Screen Shot 2017-07-18 at 5.15.42 PM

For the past decade its mainly been a battle between India and the Philippines, but China has crashed the party and a lot of Latin American countries are in hot pursuit.

If you are one who thinks the BPO industry here is gonna continue to see 20% year over year growth, then this slide should give you pause.

Why? Because although blessed with some amazing advantages for customer service, we aren’t currently optimizing our focus on digital transformation.

When you look at the next image, you see both Manila and Cebu have lost ground in the battle of global cities in the past year as well.

Screen Shot 2017-07-18 at 5.14.24 PM

Manila was #2, now its #4. Now is not the time to be complacent. We need to invest heavily in upskilling our BPO workforce to offer higher value chain services. We need to champion for strong DSA programs in the schools. And we need to make sure decision-makers are armed with the data they need to keep the Philippines on the cutting edge of globalization.

Thats why we have the AAP.PH and why we have launched Augment BPO.

My goal is to create and promote a hybrid approach that offers both supplemental education and hands on experience. We need to get past the days of having OJT do data encoding or simple research projects… they need skills that they can apply day one.

They need it, we need it, the country needs it.

Any ideas or suggestions? This is just the first draft.

Hoping to roll this out in the next month or so.
