Let’s talk about the human body for a minute. There are a lot of complex systems, organs and parts that make our bodies function and function well.
There’s the liver, nervous system, circulatory system, heart, lungs, kidneys and brain just to name a few. All of these organs and systems are very important and totally necessary for the body to survive.
But is there one that is more important over the other?
Can some of them be replaced by a machine or a transplant?
The answer is yes to both.
You can have a liver, lung or heart transplant. You can even live without a kidney and hook up to a machine. But the two things you cannot live without is a brain, nervous system and circulatory system.
So education and systems are to your business what your brain and nervous/circulatory systems are to your body.
Two things you or your company will die without.
I get so passionate and excited when you start talking about educating yourself and implementing systems!
I know to some of you that makes me a little on the weird side.
Ok…a lot on the weird side. 🙂
But by the time you are done reading this I hope to have you quite excited about my fav topic as well.
You can have a huge warehouse and tens of thousands of dollars worth of the latest and greatest equipment on the planet but if you have no clue how to use them or set your crews into motion processing jobs using them would be like owning a car without a steering wheel and a gear shift.
You can sit in it and look pretty but you aren’t gonna go anywhere.
You can rent, lease or even JV (joint venture) with someone to get the equipment you need. But the right education and systems in place in your operation are what puts you on the road to success.
The other reason that I am so passionate about education is this is an asset that you will own forever.
It doesn’t depreciate.
It can’t be repossessed.
You pay for it as you go so there is no debt to ensure.
And it builds the best kind of capital there is.
AND THIS IS THE ONE THING THAT WILL QUICKLY SET YOU APART FROM YOUR COMPETITORS!!
Education and systems has consistently put me ahead of the pack in my business year after year. And it will do the same for you.
When you walk into a prospective client’s home and they are devastated by a disaster that involves everything that they own they want to know that they are in good, knowledgeable and confident hands.
Think about it. If you are taking your Porsche into the shop for a major repair would you want to hear that your mechanic has the newest latest greatest equipment?? Sure. But more importantly wouldn’t you want to hear that they have the best trained and most knowledgeable technicians to use that equipment. Of course you would.
Your potential new client would to.
So what kind of class do you need to take?
One that teaches you how to do the job not how to take a test. One that gives you hands on training with complete reference manuals to take back with you for future use.
You want an instructor that is in the trenches with you and is willing to work with you and support you after your class is completed and you are back in your business implementing all that you have learned. Someone who is willing to guide you thru that initial learning phase and getting your feet wet so to speak.
You want an instructor who can give you all the tools and turnkey systems you need to be successful once you are back in the field.
Your classroom should be full of doing the work not just watching a power point.
DON’T SETTLE FOR ANYTHING LESS IN YOUR EDUCATION!
Cause if you do you and your client both suffer.
And that’s not cool.
Too many classes today teach you just enough to be dangerous and not enough to be successful.
Well I hope you are a bit more excited about my fav topic. 🙂
