Are You Ready to Sell – Why Not?

At some point we all need to exit our business, for many this will be scary and difficult. Those that run their business as though they are preparing it for sale two years from now make the best decisions on: developing value, taking profit and what their focus should be. Why? Because they have a business plan with an exit strategy!

Space looks like fun?

Here are two video feeds that caught my eye this month, both are inspired by genius and free thinking with bucket loads of entrepreneurial flare and absolute drive to succeed at relatively low cost! While there are many differences between the two ventures strategy and technology are two that really stand out for me? What can you learn from these video clips?

Fascinating approach, uses old technology but sadly, unlikely to succeed.

Genius, I am proud to be a Kiwi!!

Very high tech and very likely to succeed.

Wealth and Opportunity – What you do matters!

My sister, Esme Mac Donald shared this short reflection that she previously shared with her small Otago community church. I think it raises a fabulous question? Do you take anything for granted?

Imagine if your birthright was to be given a bank account that would have deposited in it $86,400 every day. However, your birthright comes with rules!

The rules:

  • You can not transfer the money into another account
  • You can only spend it.
  • Each morning upon waking, your account has another $86,400 for that day but anything you don’t spend that day is removed.
  • The bank can end the game without warning. At any time it can say, “The game is over!” It can close the account & you will not receive a new one.

What would you personally do?

You would buy anything and everything you wanted. Not only for yourself but for all the people you love. Even for people you don’t know, because you couldn’t possibly spend it all on yourself, right? You would try to spend every cent and use it all, wouldn’t you?

Well, actually this scenario is reality. Each of us is in possession of such a magical gift, we just can’t see it. The magical bank is life and the magical money is time.

Each morning we awaken to receive 86,400 seconds as a gift of life and when we go to sleep at night, any unused time is not credited to us. What we have frittered away that day is forever lost. Yesterday is forever gone. Each morning the account is refilled but you need to remind yourself that your life can be terminated at any time….without warning.

So think about what you will do with your 86,400 seconds at the start of each day and ask yourself, did my efforts today support the gift of another 86,400 tomorrow?
