Upcoming “Creating an Unstoppable Business” Course

=============== 4/04/2016

Recently I reached out to many of our subscribers to mention that I'm teach a class at Southern Oregon University through the OLLI program, about the concise principles to build an “Unstoppable Busienss.”

I know that many folks live too far away from Medford Oregon to attend in person, but I'm hoping to capture podcasts and materials to share this with everyone who has struggled with growing their business.

Here is the welcome message I'm sending to the registered students, to give a better idea of what will be provided in this focused training. Hope you find it interesting -

 

“Thank you for enlisting into our 'unstoppable business' class!”

You know, many of us have in the past built highly “stoppable” businesses; that is, we were following a dream or an idea, but the business … just didn't take off. It faltered. It got stopped.

Well, good news. In this quick-learning class, in eight focused sections, you will discover the answers to make your business unstoppable.

 

Now although we've not met yet, I suspect I know some of the thoughts that may go through your head … First, you have a dream, perhaps a vision, of what you wish your endeavor to become. And so first - whether this is your first attempt ever to create a business, whether your business is intended to be large or small, or whether you've encountered hazards along the way before - I assure you that you CAN create a business, and a strong one, just by attending these eight meetings, because you will be given access to the information that most people never possess, as you will see for yourself.
. Perhaps you, or someone you know, once struggled to create a viable business and it wasn't so easy, but that's not surprising. It's not because true, accurate, and reliable information doesn't exist, but that good and useful information is unfortunately buried in a blizzard of opinions, courses, contradictions, and complications that make it near-impossible for any sensible human to sift through the hurricane of conflicting approaches, and to extract the few, workable steps needed to simply get the job done.
. You can also set aside any worries or concerns that you might not be able to do it, or that it might be yet-another stupid “write a business plan” blather-course or some kind of abstract generalities. It's not. I've seen those - done those - and we won't waste any time like that. This will be hands-on, step by step work together to solve the glaring problem that all struggling businesses share - the ability to create a constant and reliable supply of new clients/customers.
. In the past, you've probably had the experience of hearing someone carrying on in a complicated manner about some subject that you already know, and you KNEW it wasn't so complicated as what they were claiming. And you probably have suspected that much of the marketing, grow-your-business, so-called “training” available these days is either useless, or a thinly-disguised cover to sell you something, probably something unneeded. And you know what? You were right. And we won't have to wade through any of that in this course.
. And finally, if you have any scoffers in your family, your friends, or people you knew in the past, and they've been less than supportive that you can reach for your dream and attain it, you're going to gain an almost unfair advantage, so in the end, you'll have the final chuckle, because your business can prosper, can grow, can be what you want … and all it takes to master these steps is to show up, pay attention, and then work on your business.

I think you will have fun, and you'll come away with the tools you need to grow your business. Just that simple.

What should you bring?  Important - Bring note-taking materials. If you have a portable tablet or laptop computer, you may also want to bring that; you may find it useful now and then. The one ESSENTIAL is to show up.

That's all there is to it. I'm looking forward to meeting you at our first meeting, this week on Wednesday April 6th, at 1pm, at the SOU/RCC Medford Higher Education Center, room 321.

 

Bring your note-taking materials, be ready to see two approaches you've never seen before, and be prepared to have fun building an unstoppable business!

Best wishes,
- Arthur Cronos

Can You Build an Unstoppable Business?

Medford, Oregon March 15, 2016: Over 40 years, gosh, I’ve seen effective marketing change. In my own businesses, we’ve gone from newspaper ads and yellow pages to search engines and facebook ads, and other things even more esoteric.

The principles stay the same, but how to use the new “Mediums” is a moving target, hard for most people to keep up with the change.

MAKING SALES AND CASHFLOW RELIABLE, MONTH AFTER MONTH

After extracting the essentials of “What Works” in today’s world, I’m offering a quick-learning class at the Medford University of Southern Oregon, through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) program. Free to OLLI members, and joining OLLI is easy.

This 8-week “cheat-sheet” business-expansion training is called “How to Build an Unstoppable Business.”

COURSE DETAILS

See here — http://olli.sou.edu/olliatsou/course/course.aspx?C=1000&pc=61

Course begins Wednesday, April 6, at 1pm.

Soon I’ll provide an overview of what you’ll discover in this course, and how it will make your sales process strong, automatic, and reliable, month after month.

Till then, best wishes,

— Arthur

PS: My Amazon best-seller “Get Endless New Clients,” is recommended for the course, $29.95 print or $4 kindle.

See it here — http://voltos.us/ENDLESS

PPS: Many of you may be too far from Medford to attend, so I will attempt to record the sessions and provide the training in a series of podcasts.

New Yorkers Cower As Clinton Victory Speech Reverberates Across Entire State

ALBANY, NY-Covering their ears as the thunderous sound violently shook buildings and shattered glass windows, New York residents reportedly cowered in shock and fear Tuesday night as Hillary Clinton's primary election victory speech reverberated across the entire state. “Thank you all so much-today, you proved once again there's no place like home,” said the Democratic presidential candidate, as her deafening address, which seemed to come from all sides at once, boomed across the landscape, setting off car alarms and forcing drivers to pull over to the side of the road in all 62 New York counties. “The race for the nomination is in the home stretch, and victory is in sight. You have carried us every step of the way with passion and determination. I am grateful to every one of you.” At press time, sources in the upcoming primary states of Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Rhode ...
