Rules to Consider
September 19, 2012 06:08PM
In the world of detailing we often see experts anointing themselves as greatest, the best or simp #1. If you are good you don't have to brag, others will do it for you.

With that in mind here are some personal rules to live by as a detail business owner:

1. If mobile, show up 10 minutes early. If a fixed location be there 30 minutes before opening.
2. Customers are not always right, but you must treat them as they are.
3. Always dress like a business owner, not a worker even if you do the work.
4. Never give unsolicited advise
5. Never bring your ego to work.
6. Don't waste people's time.
7. Don't brag about your accomplishments to people who didn't ask you about them.
8. Always be humble
9. Spend 80% of your time in your comfort zone and 20% outside it. You will be both productive and also challenged.
10. Focus on past customers they are mist likely to purchase again.
11. Under promise and over achieve.

An excellent list, useful for all types of business as well as life in general.

I especially liked number 11.

Bud, I agree with all of which you presented.
Professionals practice what you presented, that is why they are "professionals".
Which shows why they are able to make a profit and be in business for years, rather than a couple of months.

Thanks, had more but I lost the list.
Rule #12. Don't forget where you put things.

Rule #13, we get old, so we label things and put them a place that we will forget where we put them.
Then, when we do find them, we forget why we put them there in the first place.
Speaking from personal experience.

Doug with you they are not "wise-cracks" they are mean-spirited comments.....
