Becoming Your Best

Old School Business and Millennial Mindsets

We’re looking for a mix of old school business people and new entrepreneurs at Wisconsin Business Owners and at our Wisconsin Business Owners Meetups.  It’s a bit perplexing to me that we don’t have standing room only crowds, given the quality of our programs.

An interesting conversation with Wisconsin Business Owners Co-Organizer Maggie Mongan crystallized the following:

Despite excellent quality and value, so many meetups are now focused on “drive-by” presentations of as little as ten minutes.  For some reason, people find that attractive.  It may be attractive online – just “like” and “follow” and you think you’ve done the work – but real success requires more.  Success is that place in life where preparation and opportunity meet.  [my emphasis]    We’ve long prided ourselves on professional, productive meetings in a very relaxed, personable atmosphere.  So, why the limited numbers for Meetup attendance?

The video that follows may explain a bit of our dilemma in driving up numbers of attendees.   I did a YouTube search for “old school corporate business” and “Why I do business old school” came up number one.

The points Andrew Henderson, the video presenter, makes are worthwhile for those who are “wannapreneurs”:

Rule #1 – Sales Matter

It takes more than a minute, or ten minutes, to master sales.  Both of our Meetups this Friday address aspects of sales and follow-up in-depth.  Our February 28, 2020 Lunch & Learn presenter, an engineer who sells, discusses “How to Advance Stalled Sales”  Seats still available.

Rule #2 – Your Word Matters

Our February 28, 2020 Special Morning Session master sales/presenter does an hour and fifteen minutes in the morning on why your business apology matters.

Rule #3 – Contracts Matter

Rule #4 – Protect What is Yours

Rule #5 – A Job is A Job

Many thanks to Mr. Henderson of https://www.nomadcapitalist.com for explaining his thoughts.  His thoughts helped me explain my own.

My next YouTube search was for “old school corporate business vs. millennial mindset” and this excellent animated video came up first:

I’m not blaming lower than expected attendance on millennials.  Rather, on the digital equivalent of “drive-by” networking, a “swipe-right” involvement level.  I encourage everyone to “do the work.”  Ninety percent of success is showing up.  Come join us!  

BTW, #2 in my YouTube search for “old school corporate business vs. millennial mindset” was this TEDx Talk – lest I be called on to apologize to millennials, this is a great rejoinder to the video post above.  My wife and I have four millennial adult children, and I believe all of them have life – work and play – figured out better than I did at their ages.

Constructive Criticism Equals Straight Talk

Straight talk – constructive criticism – is welcome in the workplace and as a volunteer.  As a matter of giving back, I did some community service organization volunteering.  As my kids were growing up I did a fair share of volunteering.  For my kids, whether for Scouts, Basketball, Baseball, Football or family outings, I figured that volunteering was a way to force myself to do the things with my kids that I wanted to do anyhow.

Whether as an employer, or a volunteer, a pet peeve of mine is the person who says, “someone, they asked me not to say who, didn’t like “x”.”   The peeve is not with the messenger.  My automatic responses are generally 1) what do you think? and 2) tell them if they have a concern, they should share it with me.  I welcome constructive criticism.  The way to deal with concerns is to make them explicit, to examine them, and to find resolution.

That matter of fact approach isn’t cold.  It’s realistic.  Complaining to someone who is not in a position to change what you’re complaining about is just complaining.  Complaining to someone who is in a position to change what you’re complaining about – in as positive a manner as you can muster – is constructive criticism.  Complaining in hopes of  changing outcomes is the mature, thoughtful approach to take, in my opinion.

I was reminded of my pet peeve about (the lack of) constructive criticism when I saw the following TED for Work talk, The Secret to Giving Great Feedback.

 

From:  https://www.ted.com/talks/leeann_renninger_the_secret_to_giving_great_feedback

Humans have been coming up with ways to give constructive criticism for centuries, but somehow we’re still pretty terrible at it. Cognitive psychologist LeeAnn Renniger shares a scientifically proven method for giving effective feedback.

As one of the Organizers of Wisconsin Business Owners, I welcome your constructive criticism.  Use our contact page or call me…preferably after you’ve viewed the video above.

Side Hustles Revolution & Wisconsin Business Owners

Side Hustles.  They’re everywhere, practiced by seemingly everyone.

This video (and another that will follow soon) explain that side hustles – and the reasons for them – vary widely.  I picked this TEDx video as a “jumping off” point, defining the side hustle, and the ‘whys and wherefore’s” of side gigs.

Yes, side hustles are often about the money.  Yet they’re often about so much more than just money.  They’re about doing what you love.  They’re about learning, growing, building and achieving.  They’re about balance and (self-) determining how we live and work.

I think the side hustle has been part of “the American Way” since the Pilgrims got here.  I’d classify a lot of part-time jobs as side-hustles.  The baseball park vendor who makes good coin while enjoying the ball park and the game.  The baby-sitter, the pet-sitter, the part-time elder care-giver, the student who teaches music…

My Dad, a self-employed construction contractor for fifty years, always suggested to me, “Use your brain, not your back  But learn a trade so you always have something to fall back on.”   He was a quintessential horse-trader with side hustles galore.

This from the YouTube introduction of the video: This is the side hustle revolution | The Way We Work, a TED series:

“Past generations found a company to work for and then stayed there for decades. But today, we rarely stay in the same job (let alone on the same career path) and we don’t rely on a single income stream. The tools and resources are out there for us to do our own thing, and more of us are going with the entrepreneurial spirit — even if it’s on the side of a traditional job. Podcaster and marketer Nicaila Matthews Okome helps survey the scene.

“The Way We Work is a TED original video series where leaders and thinkers offer practical wisdom and insight into how we can adapt and thrive amid changing workplace conventions. (Made possible with the support of Dropbox)”

Stay tuned for more of “The Way We Work” TED Talks.

Wisconsin on the Side

I helped make ends meet while in college by doing tax returns for people.  After a course in Econ 304 or 404, Money & Banking, tax returns made some sense to me, and I could confidently deliver value on basic returns.  My daughter-in-law, enjoys catering events with her mom and her auntie while bringing home some bacon, and sometimes great leftovers.  My daughter works hard and has fun at State Fair while making bank, listening to live music and seeing friends, family and other fairgoers who stop by to enjoy themselves – and tip well – to boot.

Wisconsin is great for side hustles.  Thinking locally, snow plowing comes to mind.   Micro-brewing, too.  Door County folks offer firewood for sale at roadside self-help stacks in their front yards. How many contribute cherries and maple syrup to destination retail locations?

Wisconsin Business Owners Side Hustles

Wisconsin Business Owners – our Members – are great for side hustles.  I’ve seen groups form from within our group, when several speakers, already friends, combined their skills to deliver even greater value together, while continuing to deliver excellent values to their clients in their own niches.

I met one of my newest clients online through our Wisconsin Business Owners Meetup group, then in person at a Wisconsin Business Owners event.  He’s got the consummate side hustle, a whole second business based on his skills and interests.  His education and experience at his primary job are quite advanced.  He’s engaged by huge multinational corporations on a project basis.  Yet, when his “day job” isn’t a hundred percent busy, he devotes time to developing his side hustle.  He simply never wants to be in the position of having to rely on a huge client or two for his bread and butter.  Self-determination is his key.

The “Side Hustle” for many of us amounts to figuring out how to deliver the best in all facets of our main hustle. We learn, we network and we share in a relaxed yet professional environment.

Our group Organizers are very much about delivering a greater value to Wisconsin Business Owners than the sum of our individual parts. Plus, our Organizers are “servant leaders” … people who derive pleasure from simply helping others.  And we all like to learn.

So, even if you’re “just” doing a side hustle, join us!  Network with people who are all about learning in a professional, yet personal, learning environment.
