Content Marketing and The Gift That It Should Be

Content marketing is about giving.  In business, there is a time to ask for the sale. But you need the people you communicate with to trust you. Trust is not built when you sell your product or service on first contact. This isn’t necessarily about that championship t-shirt someone sells. Although even then, the consumer needs to trust the website and shipping.…

Do You Control the Pace in Business | NASCAR | SportsEpreneur

Do You Control the Pace?

We all think of speed around the track as the main aspect of NASCAR, but before we get to witness the speed, we see a pace car controlling the speed.

I’m fascinated by pace in business. Not everyone can move at the same pace–so it’s up to the leaders to push and control the pace of the individuals and the team. Push the pace all the time and you may wear out your team. Don’t push the pace enough and you may fall behind. 
Think about pace in your business as it relates to NASCAR.

If nothing else, who doesn’t appreciate a good view of one of Charlotte’s most iconic venues–Charlotte Motor Speedway.

What will be your pace in business this week?
