The Power of Compounding

Power of Compounding

Are you making the best use of your time and finances? Most people don't have a clue. I tell you what, those at the top have learned this lesson really well. Here is a simple illustration of compounding:

The scenario goes like this -- if you were given a choice to receive one million dollars in one month or a penny doubled every day for 30 days which one would you choose? When I first heard this, I knew that the penny doubled everyday must have been the better choice to go with as it was a little obvious to me that it had to be a trick question of some sort. But how much better would it be was not something that I knew immediately. So to demonstrate this, it was actually written out with all the calculations and it turned out to something like this:

Day 1: $.01
Day 2: $.02
Day 3: $.04
Day 4: $.08
Day 5: $.16
Day 6: $.32
Day 7: $.64
Day 8: $1.28
Day 9: $2.56
Day 10: $5.12
Day 11: $10.24
Day 12: $20.48
Day 13: $40.96
Day 14: $81.92
Day 15: $163.84
Day 16: $327.68
Day 17: $655.36
Day 18: $1,310.72
Day 19: $2,621.44
Day 20: $5,242.88
Day 21: $10,485.76
Day 22: $20,971.52
Day 23: $41,943.04
Day 24: $83,886.08
Day 25: $167,772.16
Day 26: $335,544.32
Day 27: $671,088.64
Day 28: $1,342,177.28
Day 29: $2,684,354.56
Day 30: $5,368,709.12

Quite a big difference once you look at it as you would be getting over 5 million dollars with the penny doubled everyday for 30 days route. How does this equation relate to your job, business, investments, or retirement planning? Is your money working for you are you working for your money?

Build a Business Not a Job.

 
It was back in the 80s when I started my 1st business. I had several years of graphic design experience. I had taught myself and mastered the  art of Desktop publishing, and I had reached the top of my pay scale. My expenses kept rising to be just beyond my income. I needed to do something different. 
 
It was 1987; I took my tax return, baught a new computer some software and was ready to go -- or so I thought. I had what I thought was a great idea, but I had no Idea what starting a buisness really entailed. Instead of the team that I was part of with my former employer, I was now on my own. Rather than having a single job, I was now wearing multiple hats! The bottom line was that I was working harder and more hours for much less money! Oh, speaking about money -- who knew that the startup expenses were just the tip of the iceberg. The bottom line is that I was not prepared in the least to start or run a successful business. Growing up in Southern California the mantra was 'finish high school and college, learn a skill, and get a job." No one ever told me to 'go to school and learn how to start your own business.'

How to avoid the Top 10 Communication Mistakes

Communication Mistakes

Your communications both in person and online have a big impact on how you are perceived by clients, customers and prospects. According to a new study of over 260 senior executives, you must be viewed as a leader in order to get promoted into top jobs. That takes “executive presence,” which is defined as having gravitas, excellent communication skills and a polished appearance. I extrapolate that many of the same principles apply to how we conduct our businesses and business communication skills.

Understanding and practicing these skills are essential.  In our modern culture that mandates “political correctness,” you get severally penalized for your mistakes, as potential customers and clients cross you off their good lists.

Here is a list of my personal top 10 worst communication mistakes that will instantly derail your hopes for business success:

  1. Typing Before Thinking:
    Online communications can oftentimes become problematic. 1st off it is not always simple to get an accurate understanding of context, emotion or intent from discussions we encounter in cyberspace. Not paying close attention to the details and responding without thinking can get your reputation into deep trouble. I recently sent out a group communication to a Meetup group that I manage. Several members of my group are actually part of another group that I am affiliated with. The Owner of that other group was on the receiving end of my group message. She assumed that I was sending messages trying to poach from her membership. Without thinking, she responded harshly and the entire group got to read her rantings. A simple phone call or private message would have saved her a bunch of embarrassment.

    This three-step drill will help avoid your own pitfalls:
    1. Stop: Pause before you open your mouth and ask yourself, "Is anything I am going to say worth it?"
    2. Challenge: Is the  message you are reading/hearing what the person is actually trying to convey -- do the facts really support a negative message? Conclude that it is or isn't worth the effort to pursue, then,
    3. Choose: Take the least destructive, most private way of dealing with the issue if necessary -- like a phone call or private message. Say, "Thank you." If you can stop yourself in this minor moment, with someone with whom you work closely and who knows you well, you're in good shape. If not, try this visual on for comparison. Your CEO walks into your office with the same urgent document that you already know about. Would you tell her in the same impatient tone that you did your assistant that "you already know about it"? Probably not. It's something to think about.
