Quality Will Make You Reign Supreme In The Marketplace

It goes without saying that delivering a better value or service at a higher price is better than delivering a cheap one at a higher price.

Cheap service at a high price

You want to stand out from what others are doing in your industry. The trend is commonly to make a cheap product and sell it for as much as possible.

Boo this model. Boo it.

Make the best quality product you can and sell it for as much as possible. Quality makes people come back over and over and over again.

What do you, or can you, provide better than your local competitors?

Start locally, for sure. Focus on who and what’s around you for now.

This allows you to insulate yourself from your competitors. Because the way competition works is this… if you and your competitors are both selling the same thing, the only factors that can differentiate you are A) Service and B) Price.

So you either operate at a better price or improve your service to set yourself apart.

Orrr… or you make your own superior, higher quality product or service to offer to the marketplace in order to differentiate yourself.

This will allow you to insulate yourself from the competition.

Because, then, because your customers will like your product/service better than the others. Quality naturally stands apart from the rest.

Those that love what you have to offer must come to you to purchase what they want… because they can’t get it anywhere else!

This gets you out of the price war with your competition. You then are insulated. Owning your own superior product or service is simply the best! This is how you can dominate your market. This is how you win.

Take for instance a five-star carpet cleaning company. How does a company like this set themselves apart from their competition? How do they get noticed and have people come to them again and again.

In this case, it really is superior service. These guys have a whole slew of repeat business, both corporate and residential, because they do a great job.

I even witnessed a 2-star Yelp review of theirs turn into a 5-star after the owner went back to the customer’s property and fixed the problem. The owner also told me that a lot of the big apartment and office buildings come back to him because he does such an excellent.

A lot of businesses won’t do that… go back to fix the problem.  Of course, a lot will.

What’s great about these guys is that they still offer inexpensive services. They have the highest tech equipment on the market, use it well, and they still understand the process of profit.

So, instead of creating their own product, they’re beginning to dominate the market by doing both A and B… providing better Service at a lower Price.

Point taken! That works, too.

How To Enjoy the Process of Building a Business

What’s one of the best things you can do to enjoy success as you’re building a business?

Enjoy the process. Don’t be in such a hurry to get through the process.

I know you’ve heard this a million and one times, but it’s true.

Think about it… what are your other options?

Digging holes? Waiting tables?

Spending years and throwing a ton of money to go to college? Again?

Or to get what kind of a job?

Self ownership is the ONLY way to go, but you gotta stick with it. What are the alternatives?

Embrace suffering. Embrace suffering in the name of doing what you’re doing and producing what you’re producing.

Here’s a big paradox, though, because I’m of two minds about it: Don’t be in a hurry, yet money loves speed. The faster you work, the better.

But the big difference is… don’t get anxious if you’re not getting results from your big, consistent efforts. Patience is as important as working hard, working big and moving fast. It’s a vital ingredient.

But enjoying the process is vital. Everything takes time.

It’s a great paradox… everything takes time yet the moment is the only thing you have… it’s always the eternal now.

Interesting, eh?

So how can you apply this practically? Thinking about it is a start, because everything we do starts with a thought. Thinking about good ideas can change your consciousness, and that’s key.

So, when you find yourself feeling impatient, catch yourself. Take a deep breath and remember that the present moment is all you have. If you can appreciate the journey instead of projecting yourself into the future and basically fantasizing about what’s yet to be, you’ll have more power to act on the things that need being done now. You’ll have a clearer mind.

Try it. It’s legit. It might sound silly. But your mind is your most valuable asset, so why not start there? Controlling your mind by being conscious and making a conscious choice about HOW you’re going to feel is very, very powerful. It will change your whole life.

Take a breath. Breath can often control or soften thought. Breath is silence and silence is how you tap into the present moment and enjoy the journey. When your mind is loud and says things like “Why aren’t I there yet? Why is this taking so long?” you’re not in your power… you’re not enjoying life, you’re not enjoying the journey, and you’re less effective at what you’re doing in the moment.

Silence of the mind, which starts with the breath, is the seat of power. You can achieve great things! By staying present.

Taxis vs Uber vs Limousine Service

Convenience is beginning to challenge Excellence when it comes to rogue apps and limousine services. Corporate travel, bolstered by economic growth, is steadily increasing. But given the choice, business travelers are still opting for professional Chauffeured Services.

Though it may be an issue of convenience to order an Uber or taxi cab, price still holds stronger for the Limo companies. According to www.taxifarefinder.com/ the average cab rate in major cities is $3.50 per mile with a set airport fare ranging from $67 – $88 and as high as $173.

Uber rates tend to be competitive with cab rates or more expensive. There is a base rate from $7-13, city depending, plus average of $2.31 per mile (plus surcharge that is included in fine print upon joining).

Limousine companies, like this one we used in our case study, charge $35-85 an hour and most offer a package rate including multiple stops and return service for as low as $100.

The topic of confusion pertaining to Uber cannot go without mention. “A recent review of Uber’s complaints was done in March 2014. Consumer complaints allege misunderstanding Uber Technologies’ pricing, being misinformed about the overall cost of the services rendered, and not being made aware of “surge pricing,” or temporary increases in the company’s charges. Some consumers claim that they were told the final cost of the transportation service the company provided (through Uber Technologies’ phone app, the driver, and the consumer’s receipt), only to be subsequently charged a substantially larger amount,” – bbb.org.

This is the type of complaint found across the web. As well as drivers not knowing the city or good, efficient directions, they often don’t heed the route suggestions offered by their passengers. (Of course taxi drivers do this, too.) Uber does not cater to their customers. The independent drivers are not looking for repeat business. Simply making an extra buck because they own a vehicle.

Bottom line, when it comes to rates, all are in the same ballpark. Opting for excellent service from professionals that are trained in customer service and possess a chauffeur’s license, ensures the extra time spent on securing exquisite service is worth it. “For example, the fact that a chauffeur has been entrusted with an extremely valuable vehicle indicates that he or she is a very experienced and knowledgeable person. The chances are that they are also local to the area and will know the surrounding districts like the back of their hand,” – Travel and Leisure – Article Source: http://EzineArticles.com/8936378.

The true value is in the experience. A Limo Service is there to serve their customers and treat them superior to the run of the mill taxi fare. As Registered Certified Licensed Drivers, professionalism is a common practice. They are trained to meet expectations and keep their clients safe and satisfied. There just isn’t a comparison.

Makes you think, doesn’t it?
