Predicting 2015: Firing Your Customers

Continuing our look into the crystal ball toward 2015, today on 7 Minutes In the Morning, well… we need to have a talk!

As the global economy continues to expand business owners are in a GREAT position to capitalize by niching down and becoming more focused on a smaller sub-set of clients. This always seems counter-intuitive but think about it.

Now, there is a catch. Anytime you niche down, you will disqualify some of your existing customers and, well, you’ll need to fire them. Now, don’t just put them out on the street…help them find a new source for your product or service. Continue to add value even in parting ways! You never know, they may be back and a better fit for your product or service in the future.

Anyway, that’s our topic on today’s episode of 7 Minutes In the Morning, have a listen and enjoy!

PS – Be sure to stay to the very end and let me know what you think about the sign-off on twitter @ThomRigsby!
