Your Gross Income “sticky” no matter what? Is it employee related?

Category: Articles • May 11, 2015

Have you ever just had those weeks or months where no matter what you did or how much you marketed, you just couldn’t get the jobs in? You tried everything that worked before,  you sent out the same stuff, networked with the same guys, but still – no calls and jobs and your Gross Income suffered.

Did you ever wonder if it was one of your employees? It very well may be.

Some of you can disagree with this, but people that work for you can have a sort of black magic effect and influence over your statistics.  Some of us who have been in business know that business is all about people and there are people who make things go right and people who make things go wrong. Stick a person who makes things go wrong in any area near your finance, marketing, sales, etc. and they stop things dead no matter what you do. Almost like spiderweb or bubble gum.

I’ve touched on a lot of this on a prior article I wrote before, (click here to read it).   But I want to give you more  things to look for that tell you whether you have someone holding back the expansion of your company, and they may not be employees, but could be people around you such as friends of family…

Here are some more Indicators that you have an employee or other person around who needs to be removed (the 1st article linked above has the others):

  • You’re tired all the time, but you didn’t used to be. 
  • You don’t feel like helping your employees anymore, except that you’re successful to the degree that you are because of your natural ability to help your employees.
  • Things look bleak now when you used to look at the bright future of it
  • You move slower now, but you used to move fast.

The fact of the matter is that there is ether someone working for you that slowed you down and started to get you to think and act this way, or someone close to you personally.

The world’s most rich and powerful know it is all about people and having powerhouse positive people around you.  You must become good at filtering out the negative (they can be hard to spot) people from your company and life.
