Business Strategy Question #01: What is the RIGHT first question to ask to build your business?

The RIGHT first question when you're starting, or growing, a business is NOT "what technology" or "blueprint" or "whatever." It is what lights a fire under your ass, your passion for that unique thing that drives you.

Business Strategy Question #02: Who Are You?

Your business is a unique recipe for success, just like you. There is no one-size-fits-all solution to the "Right" business strategy, tools and techniques. So when you ask, and answer the questions first, you can create something that tastes ever so nummee and reach the people waiting for exactly what you offer.

Business Strategy Question #03: What is your big WHY?

Your big why is an essential part of you getting kick-a$$ clear on what you're going to do in and for your business. It is the underlying driver. It is what gets you out of bed when you don't want to get out of bed. It is what propels you forward, to try.

Business Strategy Question #04: Who is your WHO?

It's ever so easy, when you believe deeply in what you do, to think "everyone" is your who. And technically, you're right. And it doesn't mean that everyone is your ideal client. The one willing to pay you and listen to you.

Business Strategy Question #05: What do you value?

There are 10 essential questions to ask before you start buying, renting or using "whatever" tools you've found or have been told to use. And this is #5...what do you VALUE? Why is that important? Because being in business is a partnership, between you and your client, between you and YOU and between you and those you work with.

Business Strategy Question #06: What is your story?

There are 10 essential questions to ask before you start buying, renting or using "whatever" tools you've found or have been told to use. And this is #6...What's your story?Most people don't give a crap about your credentials or your "what"...they care about what has happened to you, why you do what you do and how you got from "there" to "here."

Business Strategy Question #07: What is your secret sauce?

Each of us has a secret sauce, something we know and that is so easy for us we don't even think about it as something "special" or "secret" when we do it. When you discover your secret sauce, you find the way to connect with others who have no clue how to do "that" and are are starving to death because they don't have what you're serving.

Business Strategy Question #08: What will you share?

One of the top 10 questions to ask BEFORE you pick business models, legal advisors, blueprints or technology is "What will you share?" How much of you? What part of your background? How deep will you go? How much of you will you reveal in your emails, newsletters, blog posts and other "get out there" materials?

Business Strategy Question #09: What are your goals?

One of the top 10 questions to ask BEFORE you pick business models, legal advisors, blueprints or technology is "What are YOUR goals?" See what happens so often is that we listen to the goals OTHERS have for us instead of picking our own goal.

Business Strategy Question #10: What are willing to invest?

Ah, and here is question #10 of 10: What will you invest in your business to create the lifestyle and transformation you want to create? Yes, there are time investments and dollar investments and the giving-up-of-other things investments. Make sure you're clear on what you're willing to invest, first, and things will be MUCH easier down the road.
