You have a talent and asking the most simple questions, that just aren't so simple to answer. Answering them can be so valuable. Keep it coming, and many thanks. Reply pl February 9, 2013 Yeah, Ed. That’s the rub, isn’t it? Getting good answers? Reply Jay Rhome February 7, 2013 These are great questions not only to ask our clients, but definitely for us as well! I’m going them right now for my own business. The follow up questions are really good too. Thanks Paul. I like this. Content packed.

This is one of your most intelligent directions, consistent at the end of each presentation, I think… getting immediate feedback for your Gifts. I hope you feel good with the info you give freely….

I still do not have own business, but working for bir international research company. From few years try to wrap up my self to figure out whats there for me :), so to have more pleasant time and freedom to decide what and how to do… Reply pl February 8, 2013 Milena, I spent years in international research based strategy. Would love to hear more about what you do. Get in touch… Reply George February 7, 2013 Great insight. Some Questions I do know the answer to, some I am avoiding for 24 month or so. Time to clear the trenches of unnecessary clutter, once more. I am not sure yet if the PL approaches would work in our size or industry but there are some points well made. On an unrelated note what is your preferred method of tracking vital business numbers and do you track them by day, week month or quarter? Reply pl February 8, 2013 George, regarding tracking frequency. Depends on how much your business fluctuates, and the financial impact of those fluctuations. For clients, we’ve implemented daily, weekly, and in some cases monthly tracking – but NEVER longer than that. Weekly is my most common recommendation. Reply Aslan February 7, 2013 Hi Paul, could you please give us the questions as it seems people are having issues (including myself). Thanks for all your efforts Reply pl February 8, 2013 Asian – the transcript should be posted in a bit. Check back next week… Reply Amanda Rowe February 7, 2013 Very helpful. Thank you.

Reply Dave DeGrave February 6, 2013 Hi Paul I have been reading your emails for the last 6 or 8 months and I have an auto & marine repair,service and sales company in Thorold Ontario Canada and from your emails on marketing I am interested to know what you can do to help improve my service and repair business.As the auto repair business has changed over the past few years because cars are not breaking down like they did in previous years and preventative maintenance is the way to go,(prevent it don;t repair it)but consumers are not buying into this and still in the mindset of “don’t fix it until it breaks” .That is the old way and trying to change this is proving to be frustrating and exhausting.I have proved preventative maintenance works to some of my customers when it costs them a major repair that could have been avoided by preventative maintenance,but all in all customers don’t want to spend hard earned dollars until it breaks,therefore costing them more.I am interested in what you have to offer in order to change my business to be more profitable.Dave Reply pl February 8, 2013 Hi Dave – give my office a shout and Jo can fill you in, or go to this link: http://www.paullemberg.com/business-coaching/ We can talk if it makes sense… Reply Jane Rohde February 7, 2013 no sound. In fact it only plays 2 seconds at a time. Reply Rick Nielsen February 7, 2013 Maybe using a smartphone? Don't thing this vid is optimized for that so it starts and stops …. buffer city Reply pl February 8, 2013 Maybe running at too high res for the service. We test them on iPHone, iPad, and a bunch of browsers. But all on verizon. What platform are you on? pl February 8, 2013 Jane – I’m wondering if there are server problems… Try again? Reply Ray O'Donnell February 7, 2013 Heard it perfectly. No problems whatsoever. Reply Ray O'Donnell February 6, 2013 Paul — great questions. You’re always pushing us to think strategically. That IS why, you’re my business coach going on year 2! Thanks! Reply pl February 8, 2013 Damn straight… Reply St Go February 7, 2013 no sound? what's up with that? Reply pl February 8, 2013 Not sure, but it must be on your end. No one else had the sound problem. Maybe a re-boot? Reply St Go February 10, 2013 thanks my dear friend Marishel Jamora Gulle 🙂 Reply pl February 10, 2013 You’re welcome.
