“The One Minute Entrepreneur” + Leadership+ Student Care = Successful Plan For Everyone

I read an interesting article in the The New York Times that talked about “The One Minute Entrepreneur” (Doubleday, 2008), the latest in the “One Minute” written by Ken Blanchard, and Ethan Willis. The article talked about many interesting things but discussed the following important areas from the book for success:

•Revenue needs to exceed expenses

•. Collect your bills. Don’t let your customers use you to increase their cash flow.

•Take care of your customers. “You work for them.”

•. Take care of your people.

And in the USA Today article added the following important points from “The One Minute Entrepreneur”:

“…A simple tale. But, as always, it never hurts to be reminded of the pitfalls on the path to success, or to reach a new generation with a message of hope. Here are some of their insights. (No wincing, please.):

•Don’t ever underestimate the importance of whom you choose to be with.

•You can get everything you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want.

•There are vast opportunities in selling when you’re selling something you believe in.

•Visualize your desired outcome ahead of time.

•Identify what you are passionate about doing. Look to do more of it. If nobody will pay you to do what you love, you have a hobby, not a career.

•If you don’t do what you love, you’ll never work hard enough to be the best.

•Never let your expenses outstrip your revenue.

•Profit is the applause you get for taking care of your customers and creating a motivating environment for your people.

•Work to balance your business life with the rest of your life.

•Continually seek the wisdom of your mentors.

•Pass on the prosperity from your passion. You’ll never be successful unless you help others. Helping others does not just involve financial gains from prosperity, but also includes sharing your time and talent.”

We know our students Learn through a team focused ideas, concrete frameworks, and practical strategies. Below are a few principles that we have found can have a life changing effect on people who need help in changing their lives Prosper, that each of us are lucky to be a part — our customers/students learn how to:

1) Recognizing opportunities, -Talking to our team of sales professionals, who  finds the right program for you and your needs.

2) Taking risks and innovation — the programs are an investment in you can lead to a more fulfilling life .

3) You can find the life you want by following exactly the approach by listening to the knowledge of your mentors and take action on those principles:

4) You develop a plan, in this case for success, and you figure out how to obtain it. Remember -When you’re faced with a problem, you can come up with a solution. In life, everything around you is a problem that has been solved.


I  love sharing and learning with  others through out my company and world on the above points so that  as a team  . We are  lucky to have leaders that are motivated by truth and integrity and coaches, sales, student,customer service and admin people “motivated and have a passion to for work and achievement of our students!”

That is why we have a remarkable, morally strong company, the reason is we have, a good understanding of the idea of personal integrity is essential.

Dr. Steve Carter explains integrity as a three-step process.

  1. Discerning what is right and what is wrong.
  2. Acting on what you have discerned, even at personal cost.
  3. Saying openly that you are acting on your understanding of right from wrong

I believe that we are continuing to try and create an environment for growth in the next generation of new  employees at Prosper; we will teach and show employees by example an optimistic view of the world . The reason I believe so strongly that attitude changes reality towards a positive direction is because I have seen it in my own life.

In the end  leaders must throw the stones of integrity and success, into the water . Hopefully our growing circles of influence will defeat the tidal wave of negative thinking in the world about everything!

We have started these ripples of true influence in the water of success, by clearly defining  who we are and what we stand  and how we can help others!

I know I  we  are not perfect, but we are trying to strive to become a great company and improving every year and learning from the past.  I know that I can help one student at a time and make a difference  for perhaps a life time( See Starfish story)

I am humbled daily by my fellow team members and our students  hard work and perseverance!

“Prosper Learning” + Starfish Story=Making a Difference

The Starfish and Our Student/Customer

starfish.gif

While walking along a beach after a particularly high tide, a man noticed a boy picking up starfish after starfish and throwing them back into the sea. When he neared the youngster, he asked, “What are you doing?”

“These starfish will die if they don’t get back into the water,” the boy replied as he hurriedly continued his work.”

“There are thousands of starfish on this beach,” the man said. “Nothing you can do can possibly make a difference.”

The boy held out the starfish he had just picked up. “It makes a difference to this one,” he said and threw it into the ocean.

Like these starfish, there are more students and customers in desperate need than any one of us could possibly hope to make happy or reach 100%. Their numbers are daunting, causing many of us to resign ourselves to the notion that nothing we can do can have any real impact on a problem of such magnitude. And if solving these problems and trying to make every person happy is the goal, they are right. But our the focus is on touching individual lives and you have a team to help you ;0). Some may think what we do may not significantly effect the world’s problems, but if one more person is much happier because you helped him/her with downloadable book or change of a coach. That would mean one less problem, if everyone helped perhaps the world would be a better place? It has a ripple effect (please read about in the success stories) .

But ,we know it makes a difference to each one of those students that you touched for the better.thumbs.jpg

Social Networking And Microblogging Tools

I’m one of the ones that have found Social networking and microblogging tools helpful at work and at home helping with my teenagers. when I read “10 Bots to Help You Get the Most From Twitter” on MakeUseOf Tools I wanted to share it with anyone I could!

A few of my favorites that he posted were the following:

Twitter -is a great tool that helps you keep in touch and meet a wide variety of new people. Since its release there have been people who think Twitter is worth your time and some who think it’s a waste of time.

Sandy -Have you ever wanted a personal assistant that would keep you updated with all of your important events? Well, you can have that now with Sandy. But if you wanted a real assistant, you are going to have to wait or shell out the cash. All you have to do is direct message Sandy the reminders you want later, and she will make sure you hear about it at the right time.

Stock Quotes– If you compulsively check your stock quotes like I check my Google Analytics, you are going to need this easy to use stock bot. Just direct message this bot with the stock symbol to get the latest quote for that company.

Timer I lose track of time frequently when I’m online or blogging away.

This timer bot lets you set an alarm clock in Twitter to make sure you stay on top your regular and get those other things like paying bills, laundry or cleaning done as well. Pretty cool.

Twitter GCal Plans can change quickly or come up quickly. Twitter GCal allows you to add events to your Google Calendar by just direct messaging this bot.

Some instructions are needed to fully explain how to use this bot, but they can be found at TwitterCal.

Tipr-Tipr will help out all of the math challenged folks out there (myself included).

It calculates the tip amount for your bill, so you can make sure that you leave the right amount.

Remember The Milk-Remember the Milk is a great online to do list and task manager.

You can update your tasks or to do lists or even get reminders sent straight from this Twitter bot.

“MeetInnovators + Ethan Willis”

There was a great interview done  with Ethan Willis. He stated

“…Number one is getting good people to manage the employees. Number two is hiring good people from the beginning…” and  “…A lot of companies become bureaucratic because they are trying to set up systems and processes to manage the wrong people. If you can have the right people who believe in what you’re trying to do and who have the right philosophy, the culture of the business will often manage itself. Then it’s all about fostering that culture…” see Ethan Willis from Prosper, Inc.-MeetInnovators CEO Club

The above interview gives insight to how Prosper inc. can help people, so effectively. And in my humble opinion is the reason is the best in the educational industry!  When you “talk to Prosper CEO Ethan Willis,” you come a way better when you leave him!
