Posted by JuJuan Buford @JSBUFORD Join us this week at NextOppSocial! A place where you can listen, learn, and consume actionable content to launch, build, grow, and scale your businesses. We explore new topics each week and interview entrepreneurs throughout the Detroit Metropolitan Area, sharing insights regarding various subjects, important business strategies, success mindsets, and tools you can use to level up in your business endeavors. We bring you content for entrepreneurs, by entrepreneurs sharing their invaluable experiences and wisdom. We feature fledgling and established entrepreneurs alike; everyone from multi-millionaires, subject matter experts, CEOs, best selling authors, and some of the brightest minds in business. This week we are excited to introduce Ms. Tina Williams, Founder & COO of QT Business Solutions. As a former Personal Banker with J.P. Morgan Chase and Fifth Third Bank, Tina knows all too well how important it is for small businesses to have continuous access to capital. Therefore, she started QT Business Solutions. Founded in Detroit in 2001, QT Business Solutions was created to provide business education and technical assistance services to entrepreneurs in need of financing. During her time in the banking industry, she noticed that most entrepreneurs who applied for financing were unprepared. Often, they had no business plans and many of them did not fully understand the banks’ approval criteria for business financing. This resulted in many of them being denied for a business loan. Tina started QT Business Solutions to solve that problem.This week Ms. Williams will share how you can build business credit with bad or great credit history.

You can be talented, industrious, a servant leader, with an invaluable value proposition. However, while talent wins games, teams win championships. If you're going to grow from a team of ME to a team of WE, your people have to: 1. Understand and buy in to the vision. 2. Want to participate. Entrepreneurship is not a spectator sport. 3. Be committed to learning, growing, executing. Skills pay the bills. Sometimes addition by subtraction is necessary. And don't be afraid to lead with culture. https://thebufordco.com/uplifting-service-agreement/ Website: https://thebufordco.com/ Website: https://www.nextoppsocial.com/ LinkedIn: http://bit.ly/linkedinpublicprofilejujuanbuford Twitter: https://twitter.com/JSBUFORD Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/catchjsbuford/ Continue reading

It's easy to get caught in the trap of being a human doing rather than a human, being. It's folly to believe we can manage time, or try to squeeze the things that matter most into our schedules. If you're tired of working, doing, feeling exhausted from simply checking things off a to do list, but feeling like you're not getting any closer to your goals today, then you did yesterday, try scheduling your priorities first, then fitting everything else in between.

Far too many of us are allowing stage hands to occupy center stage in our lives. Caring too much about the opinions, thoughts, and whims of people, allowing others to define our narratives. How do you know if the aforementioned is a challenge for you? Ask yourself, what does your best life look like? Five to ten years from now how will you be spending your time, and how will your gifts find expression? What type of conversations will you be having, and who are the people (you may not know them yet) you will be spending the most time with? What stages, living and dining rooms, porches, and backyards will serve as the backdrop for your best memories? See the clothes you're wearing. Smell the lotion on your skin. Taste the water you're sipping. Envision it all. And ask yourself, are the naysayers or the people causing dissonance in your life part of your vision? If not........

I get it. You want to get it in. Crush your to-do-list. Address every issue that arises with courage and tenacity..... and you're frustrated because you're feeling like there is never enough time. And guess what, there never will be. You can't arm wrestle with time. Scold, court, or convince time. Broker for more, or make a deal with time. Time doesn't care. Instead plan your day, your week, month, year, and life everyday as if the goal is to attend and win your own Super Bowl. Make Super Bowl decisions, and eliminate the rest. These decisions won't be easy, because you'll have to give up to go up. But the short term and long term gain will be worth it, when you're no longer stressing about time.

What you measure and what you focus on improves and gets done. What are the top 3 metrics in your business, that inform you whether you're growing or not? For example: 1. The number of people learning about what I do daily. 2. The number of people who receive or consume a full presentation. 3. The number of referrals received An even more interesting question is, what are the top 3 -5 metrics that inform you whether you're winning in life?

There is a reason why some of the most successful entrepreneurs are so mercurial in their movements; often times relocating geographically multiple times over the course of their careers. #1. We aren't trees. Sometimes, you have to move to where the cheese is more plentiful. #2. You can have all the passion and talent in the world. If you're not planting seeds in fertile soil or engaging the right audience, you'll slowly wither in the wind. #buildtallerbuildings #buildingtallerbuildings #catchjsbuford #nextoppsocial #growthmindset #entrepreneurship #marketing #entrepreneurshipisempowerment _____________________________________ JuJuan Buford is a Detroit native, entrepreneur, business development professional, and writer dedicated to helping families, entrepreneurs, and business owners establish thriving enterprises, achieve financial independence, and build lives of satisfaction.

"Money isn't everything." It's an axiom that makes my stomach churn when I hear it. It is the lifeblood of your business. A more accurate statement is, it isn't the only thing. After you've secured your first client (YES!); curated the business plan; secured funding for your venture.... there is one more step that most new entrepreneurs completely side step, and it's a fatal error in judgement. Don't forget the marketing plan. What are the elements to good marketing plan? 1. How are people going to learn WHO you are on a daily basis? 2. Are you communicating WHAT you do so simply, that a third grader can get it. 3. Who is your target audience, your idea client, your buyer persona? Where do they sleep, eat, live, play, work, and what are they afraid of? 4. And from the time they learn about you; til they learn about your value prop; until they make a buying decision and afterwards; how are you going to make them a happy prospect (Yes, the NOs need love too) or client? I'm thinking about drafting an article about his topic. What do you think about it? #buildtallerbuildings #buildingtallerbuildings #catchjsbuford #nextoppsocial #growthmindset #entrepreneurship #marketing #entrepreneurshipisempowerment _____________________________________ JuJuan Buford is a Detroit native, entrepreneur, business development professional, and writer dedicated to helping families, entrepreneurs, and business owners establish thriving enterprises, achieve financial independence, and build lives of satisfaction.

More often than not, we are the bottlenecks slowing down the growth in our organizations. It's a tough pill to swallow, but very necessary if you are a micro-business owner looking to scale from a team of me, to a team of we. A couple steps to help assuage any fears you may have regarding loosening the reins. 1. Remember, people won"t pay 5 Star prices for a $2 burger. What are the tasks or functions that you perform excellently? What is your superpower? Delegate the rest. 2. This is entrepreneurship. There is no one way. No super pill or secret formula. Install a system that optimizes performance, creates simplicity, rewards the right behaviors, and incentivizes accountability (recognition). Observe, track, coach, and monitor, but get out the way. 3. No one is going to commit to the bottom line more than you. And it's hard to put your life's energies behind a compromise. In other words, connect the dots for your partners, staff, and or contractors by painting a company vision that helps them achieve their personal goals. And expend a little effort to make sure its happening for them. People don't always stay because they're working for the highest bidder. People are loyal, will arrive early and leave late, if they believe their welfare is included in the bottom line. #entrepreneurshipisempowerment _____________________________________ JuJuan Buford is a Detroit native, entrepreneur, business development professional, and writer dedicated to helping families, entrepreneurs, and business owners establish thriving enterprises, achieve financial independence, and build lives of satisfaction.
