Visualize this scene: Youre in a restaurant. You have been wanting to eat at this restaurant for a long time. Its on all the best of restaurant review lists. Its trendy. Its a see and be seen kind of place. The food is fresh, creative and delicious. The atmosphere is perfect to dine in. Then there are the desserts.

Before you can say anything, the other person at the table says: No, thank you. Im full from the delicious meal. Just coffee for me please. Then the waiter... Read More

Business is your world, isnt it? Even when you are enjoying time off on the weekend or on vacation, business probably pops into your mind. Its just who you are. When youre in business this may sound obvious but you need to sell products or services to customers. Why? The simple answer is because the customers pay you for whatever it is your company specializes in. Think about it for a moment and lets look closer: Why do your customers pay you? Do customers pay you because you show up when they need you? Do customers pay you because they especially like your website? Do customers pay you because you have a great presence on social media? Perhaps it helps to attract customers to your company. But its not why customers pay you. There isnt anything... Read More


In Business, Never Think You Are The Smartest Person In The Room

By: Howard Lewinter Thursday October 29, 2015 comments Tags: Howard Lewinter, Business Leaders, business tips

To be a successful business leader is somewhat of a balancing act. You need to be right up front leading the way and showing others how its done. At the same time, not letting your ego get the best of you. There are business people who think they are leaders due to their company title and position. No matter where they go, they believe they are the smartest person in the room and choose never to listen to what others have to say. In business, you can never think you are the smartest person in the room. If and when you do, you instantly lose the opportunity to connect with other people. You lose the opportunity to hear what they say. You lose the opportunity for success. For example, the person with the least amount of responsibility in the company may be the person who will...

Is A Positive Attitude Always Best For Business?

Its 2015!Now what? Ask yourself this question: What do you want out of this year? Yes, from a personal viewpoint. But more importantly, from a business perspective. No matter what you may list as your answers I am certain you want 1) your company to be profitable so you can make more money, 2) to be successful at what you do, 3) to stand out from everyone else in order to achieve the other two. Have you ever noticed how most people, including business people, often just follow the herd? They do what other people do. If its the latest mobile phone, they have to have it. If its the latest fashion, they have to have it. If a movie is receiving a lot of buzz, they have to see it. People want to follow what everyone else is doing. Yet to attain your business goals means standing out... Read More

Let Your Imagination Lead You To More Business Success by Howard Lewinter

Let Your Imagination Lead You To More Business Success by Howard Lewinter Do you remember when you were a child playing games? Since I was a child before the age of the internet and the computer (and maybe you are too), I remember in the summertime when school was out leaving the house at 8 oclock in the morning, come back home for lunch, then leave again but be back home for dinner, then leave one more time but be back home before dark (as the fireflies would begin to illuminate the night). Nobody ever asked where I was or was concerned for my safety back in those days as they knew I was in the neighborhood playing games with the other kids on the block and the parents all watched out for us kids. Maybe you have similar childhood memories. During those childhood days, when I... Read More

For Business Success: Focus On Today by Howard Lewinter Have you noticed on your way to and from work each day any new construction going up? It could be a new bank, drugstore, multi-level apartment complex, hotel or even a tall office building which will include several floors as headquarters for a major company. One day the space is just a plot of land with dirt; then before you know it a building sits on the land as if it were always there; fitting in with the landscape of the neighborhood. When construction on the site starts, the builder doesnt start at the top of the structure with the roof. Instead the building process begins with architectural plans, city and county permits, excavation and the ordering of building materials. Every detail, no matter how small, is paid... Read More

2 Important Steps To Take In Business When Someone Disagrees With You What business are you in? Sounds like a simple question, doesnt it? With an obvious, easy answer, right? The answer is actually universal and applies to everyone in business. You are in the people business. Why is that the answer? Because everything you do in business is about people.
