Win + Win = Double Win by Fred Shadian

Win + Win = Double Win

It was over 20 years ago, when I opened my first martial arts school, that I truly began to understand  the role of owning and operating a small business.

When you enter the world of business you come to realize that a lot of business is based on greed and the bottom line mentality.  This, unfortunately, has contributed to the global financial melt down that we just experienced. The small companies that had a profit in 2009 utilize the win/win principles to create success.

These are some common sayings that are known to many cultures: “Friendship is friendship and business is business” “We only do business with friends” The first time someone said to me: “Friendship is friendship and business is business” I was truly upset by the statement and felt that this person was telling me that we weren’t friends and that we would never be friends and to watch out because I may be ripped off.   I smiled as I remembered a saying that I used to hear from my mother: “We only do business with friends.”   I thanked the person and moved on and decided from that day onwards I would only do business with my friends.

A friend is a person that I have met, or have yet to meet, who shares similar interests, beliefs and values.  Keep in mind another saying “A stranger is a friend you have not yet met.”

A common misconception about doing business with a friend or trusted advisor is that you are going to get something for nothing.  This is what I call a taker not a mutual giver. Whenever I do business with a friend I make certain that we both walk away with mutual respect for each other and our product or service.

Anybody that I do business with I treat as a friend or trusted advisor.  I have no business doing business with people I do not trust or that do not trust me.  Once you begin to create positive results in your business people will recommend you to their friends and families and you will have more work than you can handle.  The key is to ensure that you handle the workload successfully without losing the sale. I have seen too many people lose a sale because of being distracted or disorganized when meeting or contacting a potential customer that could become a raving fan.   Remember, what it comes down to is, we always do business with friends or organizations that we trust.

“The Nido Effect” by Fred shadian

“The Nido Effect”

Last weekend I had the privilege of attending an exclusive symposium with the godfather of public speaking, Dr. Nido Qubein.  It was held at High Point University in North Carolina where, for the past five years, he has held the position of president.

There is no experience quite like the live experience.  I was in total awe as I walked through the hallways of HPU and observed the phenomena that Dr Nido Qubein and his staff have created. I have decided to call this “wow” experience “The Nido Effect.”

I must have said “Wow” more times in those two days than I have all year……Wow, this university looks amazing!  Wow, the staff are incredibly helpful and friendly! Wow, the students love this university!  Wow, Nido Qubein is a living genius!

HPU was founded in 1924.  Students come from 44 states and 55 countries.

Nido Qubein became president of HPU on January 2005.  At that time enrollment of new students was 412 and was on the decline.  In 2006 enrollment increased to 534 students.  In 2007 enrollment was 749.  In 2008 it went up to 883. In 2009 it was 1030 and enrollment for 2010 is expected to be around 1150-1200.

They have constructed 13 new buildings using the model of the “real world” environment similar to what students will move on to after leaving the university.  They’ve created a TV station, a radio station, a stock exchange, a boardroom, and a robotics dept.

The Wow effect is in everything they do and create.

They offer free snacks on the way to class to model “giving and abundance.”

They offer free personalized christmas postcards to model “connection of family and friends.”

They have a free ice cream truck on campus to model “Joy.”

They offer free rentals of GPS and Amazon Kindle Reader.

They offer a free high-tech laundry service that will text your phone once your laundry is done.

They have a free arcade, a free movie theater, and free wireless throughout the campus.

The belief is that by offering things for free to the students this will help to alleviate financial worries and allow them to focus on higher education in a vibrant learning environment.

“People will always rise to the level of expectation of their environment and what is expected of their performance.” Nido Qubein

“Most people tend to shrink their dreams to match their incomes.” Nido Qubein

“If You’re Not Earning All You Want, Change the Way You’re Doing

Business.” Nido Qubein

Leadership Series: September Book review by Fred Shadian

Here is my September Book Review

Last week i placed an online order to purchase the “Leadership Series- Volume 1, 2,3,4 and 5” by Torkom Saraydarian (1917 – 1997).  He is one of my favorite Ageless Wisdom Metaphysical writers of all time.

Well, the five books are here and it feels like i just received an inspirational Christmas present from “Santa” Torkom.

The book is jam-packed with golden nuggets.  Just to give you an idea of the depth of this book, the below paragraph is on page 36 of Leadership, Volume 1.

This is an excerpt from Leadership Series – Volume 1

(479 pages), published 1995 by T.S.G. Publishing Foundation, Inc.

“That is why if you have vision, you are creative.

When you have energy circulation, you have continuous and ever-expanding source of inspiration and impressions from higher sources. Thus, you elevate and sublimate yourself through contacting energies coming continuously from higher sources.

One must have a vision.

If you do not know what you are going to be, then you are going to be nothing. You become a human being because you stove for the vision of a human being. You become an artist because you had the vision to be an artist. Whatever you are now, that was the accomplishment of your past vision; and what-ever you will be in the future is based on the vision that you build in the present.

Try to have a vision of being something that is for service of humanity.

Immediately when you create a vision, you are caught in the whirlpool of the vision. The vision will pick you up like an eagle. If you have a vision from which you cannot escape even if you try, you have a real vision. Vision is the vehicle of your Higher Self, and once the Higher Self has a means to contact you, you will never be the same.”

Enjoy creating your Vision for your Present Future.
