The Business Building Tips 

Magic Johnson's TIPS for winning, in business and in life! I felt compelled to share these ideas with you because they have inspired me and I am sure they will inspire you as well.

  1. Learn your customer and get to know what they want - The key to every successful business is to know your customers. Find out what they like and what they don't like and serve their needs.
  2. Know the difference between a successful business and a cash flowing business- there are a number of seemingly successful business that go out of business with lots of contracts and commitments in the pipeline, but no money in the bank. Make sure you have a good cash flowing business because that will be the key to real long-term success.
  3. Have fun and Be aggressive- Magic said that he was successful in basketball because he always remembered to have fun every time he stepped on the court and be aggressive, play to win ... and he takes the same philosophy in business.
  4. Make bold moves, and don't play scared- If you are going to win big you must take some big bold moves and don't play scared. He said in basketball he practiced making no-look passes and prepared himself, and when the opportunity presents itself, he didn?t play scared but made bold moves with a mind to win!
  5. Build a BRAND! Then protect your BRAND! - Work hard on not just building a business but also on building a BRAND. Work hard for your brand and fiercely protect it, because your brand is a great part of your reputation!

  6. Use common sense and remember common sense is not always a common practice.

  7. Have Faith! Keep believing in yourself and take full advantage of all life's blessings. 

Friends if you want to get the MAGIC touch in your business then simply use these tips and stay focused on the fact that you should WIN, you can WIN and if you will win!
