Secrets of the Ridiculously Successful

They focus on one thing at a time. Multitasking? That’s a myth to hold others back.

How about YOU? How good are you at blocking out distractions, keeping smartphone in pocket or purse? The successful use tricks to keep their eye on the ball, you know. Would you like to discover these tricks for your own use?

They make time for play, time for meals. Burnout is a luxury they can’t afford.

How about YOU? Think you’re scoring points being seen eating lunch at your desk? There are better ways to get the attention of leadership, you know. It’d be good to know them, wouldn’t it?

They use a notebook or notebook app. Notes unclutter the mind for what’s important.

How about YOU? A million things buzzing inside your head? The more successful you become, the better you get at controlling thoughts. It’s a teachable skill. You could benefit from learning it.

They delegate everything. They ask How can we get this done? Not How can I do this?

How about YOU? Trouble asking others to do what you know you can do better? Difficulty parceling out assignments? No one is born with these skills. You can discover them. Would you like to?

P.P.P.S. A personal note, if I may.

Our company, Business Management Daily, is a small entrepreneurial business. Our staff of journalists, analysts and experts work in offices located in Falls Church, VA, a few miles outside the Nation’s Capital. Every day we come to work with just one mission: to dig up news and information that helps executives like you succeed in your career and rise in your organization.

This company was started quite a while ago by my dad, Allie Ash. Dad might not like me saying it but he’s kind of a big name in our little world of specialized information publishing, with lots of awards and honors to his name. Dad is still plenty active in the business but he’s turned the operational reins over to me. It’s an honor — and a responsibility — I try to live up to every day.

I’m saying all this to make the point that my word matters. The things I say in letters like this are the truth because they have to be. It’s my company — our company – and it’s our names that are on the line. We got where we are by telling subscribers the truth, not running con games or snow jobs, and here is where we plan to stay. We’re not after a quick buck. We’re in for the long haul.

That’s our business model, pure and simple. We want you to stick around … to renew your subscriptions year after year after year. We can only achieve that by giving you the straight dope. That and that alone is what you need to survive — and prosper — year … after year … after year.

Money-back Guarantee

And did I mention our iron-clad, fail-safe, 100%-assurance guarantee? Well …

That’s it. Really. You don’t like it, you get your money back. Every penny. At any time, for any reason. No need to explain. Just say ‘give it back’ and we give it back. Kind of makes you wish everything was so simple.
