As featured in Charles N. Internicola’s Entrepreneurs that Kick Ass® Business and Franchise Law Report Vol. 4 Issue 5
…Success is not built overnight… A phrase and truth that we all acknowledge and recognize but many times overlook and take for granted. This is especially the case when we see an extraordinary business and organization where everything seems to fit just right, is hitting on all cylinders and is innovating and offering a product or service that is just different and better in every way.
Nick Powills, No Limit Agency and 1851 Franchise Magazine
Well, this morning as I was reading an article and watching a video by Nick Powills at 1851 Franchise Magazine, I found myself reflecting on how 1851 Franchise Magazine and No Limit Agency are examples of those special organizations that are doing things differently and delivering an extraordinary service. Initially this is easy to overlook and from a superficial standpoint Nick Powills, 1851 Franchise Magazine and No Limit Agency would appear to be …overnight successes… where everything they do just makes sense and seems natural and simple. But what they are doing is anything but simple and in the most positive sense, 1851 Franchise Magazine and No Limit Agency are disruptive service providers innovating in ways that are unmatched in the agency, public relations and publication industries.
My answer to this “secret” and, in this case, the “secret” that propels 1851 Franchise Magazine and No Limit Agency is that everything that Nick and his team do is driven by their entrepreneurial mission and core values.
While I have no insights into their internal meetings or processes, from the outside, it is quite clear that everything they do is focused on supporting the needs of entrepreneurs, franchisors and the franchise community.
An example being Nick’s video and article that I just so happened to be reading this morning. The article was titled “Success Is Not About Talent, Its About Effort” and in it Nick shared parts of his entrepreneurial story, his successes and his failures. While the article was great to read, it was not the article that motivated me, it was the fact that Nick’s article represented just one very small example of the constant and continuous efforts that Nick and his team take and work on everyday to further their mission of supporting their clients, entrepreneurship and the franchise community. So, the “secret formula” that makes 1851 Franchise Magazine and No Limit Agency so unique is that they know, live and are committed to their entrepreneurial mission and core values.
As business owners, business success requires an extraordinary organization that is different from its competitors and one that delivers a compelling value. To innovate and create something truly remarkable you need to thoroughly understand the mission of your business, the core values that will guide your team and the unique selling proposition (USP) that makes your businesses different from everyone else and provides your customers with an extraordinary experience.
Nick and his team at 1851 Franchise Magazine and No Limit Agency are great examples – they live their entrepreneurial mission and core values and it is evident in everything they do.
1. Do you know what your entrepreneurial mission is?
2. Does your team know the core values by which your organization operates?
3. If your business disappeared tomorrow, would you be missed in the market place?
We all need to constantly and continuously evaluate and act upon these questions. Especially number “3”. Certainly, If 1851 Franchise Magazine or No Limit Agency were to disappear tomorrow, in my estimation there would be a gaping hole in the marketplace for an organization intent on helping other entrepreneurs succeed. What about your business?
