No More MBA Street Sweepers
So you graduated university. Awesome.
So you scored well on your tests. Awesome.
So you want to start making money. Grrreat… We’ll get right on that…
I like America for a lot of things, but the general schooling is one thing I don’t agree with. Universities cost a ton of money and teach you a lot of things you aren’t going to use later. It’s sad to see so many people spend so much money on ‘college’ and then get stuck in this horrible drag with no way to ever pay back their college debt.
You finish college; got this huge debt and you need to find a job. You’ll probably start off by calling your mom, see if you can crash there for a short while. Of course you can.
The first weeks you’re back, you just want to have some vacation. I mean you just graduated right?! A month goes by and you are feeling confident, and start searching for some job applications. Hmmm, there aren’t many jobs available right now… Oh here’s one!
The interview didn’t go so well, they were looking for someone with experience. You didn’t have that yet, because college only taught you to KNOW stuff in your career education, not to DO stuff.
You can’t get a job for a while, you then start giving blame. It’s the economy’s fault! It’s the evil corporations! At first it seems to be that way, until you just start blaming the most random things, it’s that one girls’ fault! It’s “that dinner I had Friday’s fault. It just stops making sense and you get scared, and then get sad and then hopeless.
This is how it goes.
So you want to change that? Awesome.
So you want to get a life and start a career? Awesome!
And you want to start making money right after college? Sure, we can help you with that.
That’s Hubbard College of Administration, every student who has graduated has been assisted in getting a job in the field they are interested in. The school has contact with a great number of companies throughout the world who are alumni or just familiar with the results the Associate degree students produce.
Companies are looking for people who can DO stuff, and do them right. Many of my friends here have graduated and could immediately decide to start working at a place they would like to work at.
There is always job placement, there is never an exception. A graduate will ALWAYS find a job when they graduate.
I want to start my own company and be an entrepreneur. I am going to work back in my own country for a while at my dads’ welding company and during that time I will apply the tools I learned here at the college to create a plan to launch my business after about a year.
So if you’re having any trouble with finding a job or your current college’s education, let me know.
Learn How to Get People to Basically Sell YOUR Product to Themselves
Don’t you just hate it when a sales person walks up to you and you can tell he doesn’t care one bit about your needs? Or if he is being really fake and nice, then you end up buying the worst possible product for the craziest amount of money.
Here are some things people HATE about most salesmen:
• They talk too much, and in a confusing way
• Not to the point, excluding the negative side of the products
• Arrogant & self-absorbed, they don’t care about you
• They try to hurry you and forcing you to buy it NOW, NOW, NOW!
I personally dislike their insincerity the most, “Well hello handsome young man! I bet I can interest you in an excellent vacuum cleaner today! You look like you could use a good sucker…”
Last Friday we had a Sales Workshop, given by Nick Terrenzi, a senior executive here at the college. And it was GOOOOOOOOD.
So many think that a sales person was born, he had that gift, that charisma. I always thought that’s why I was kind of good at it, because I was born that way.
But after the workshop I realized there is a technology behind selling, one that I was only using a little bit already, but unknowingly. They are really easy to follow, and it will get sales up so greatly if you truly apply all the aspects.
It’s important to care for your customer, make sure he gets what he NEEDS. Salesmanship is not about getting money, it’s getting what’s right for the consumer.
A lot of people have lost that way of thinking, they’re just thinking about how much they can get from you and then kick you out and never call again, like a bad date.
If you are an entrepreneur, a salesman, someone who is looking to start doing this kind of business or just a student trying to find a job – send me an e-mail and I’ll let you know when the next sales workshop is.
For students on the associate degree the workshops at school are free, by the way. It’s a must in career education.
P.S. There was even a guy from my country (Holland) all the way out here just to do the workshop and the sales training course, that’s how good it is!
Being Able to Command Doesn’t Mean You Have to Be the Boss
Have you been to a restaurant or something where the manager just freaks out to the employee for not doing something according to how the manager wants it to go?
Or have you ever seen a housewife abuse her maid for no apparent logical reason?
You don’t get things done well by treating people like animals.
Even though media and TV try to let you believe that all humans are like animals, this is not the reality. Humans are able to think about situations and often enough come to rational solutions how to handle them.
So why is it that some people have a ton of followers and some people can’t even get anything done through their friends?
A lot of the time it’s just defined as an X-factor, someone just has it or not. But I believe you can learn anything.
A few utilities one can keep in mind when you want to get something done through someone else:
• Have good manners, this consists of communicating in a clear and understanding way and showing that the other person has an importance.
• Have a reason to actually need the person to do it, and reflect that reason to him so he knows why.
• Make sure the command has an ethically and morally correct action; else you are risking the person’s perception of right and wrong.
• Be confident and show it, you must really have your intention on the command. You WANT it done. Not in a forceful way, but in a very strong confidence.
These are actually things you have to just apply to really see how it works; just reading it on my blog and knowing it won’t actually get you anywhere.
As I have pointed out several times, application of the actual learned theory is what makes you capable in this business world today.
In my business administration degree I had communication drills; this actually makes you able to confront people better. It’s just continually training your leadership and ability to get things done.
This has all the knowledge you need to know about communication, what does it consist of and how do you use it correctly?
My favorite course was the sales training, you get about 26 drills that you keep doing until YOU feel comfortable about it. The other communication courses were a lot of fun too, you get to really connect with the other students this way also.
Every entrepreneur has a little insecurity about starting out and getting to command all these people, it takes some responsibility and confront which this training can really boost for you.
Turning Luck and Uncertainty into Continuous Expansion and a Steady Income
If you have been interested in business at all, even if only a little, you’ve probably heard lots of statistics where half of new businesses don’t survive the first years of establishment, or something of the sort.
Now why is that? I’ve heard many excuses, and they never seem very convincing.
“The economy is bad” being the leader in excuses. People read the news and get bombed with it; this is then their excuse for everything that’s going bad. The (un)funny thing is, half those people don’t even know what “economy” means.
Here’s a definition.
“The management of the use of the income, products and resources of a country, state, group etc.” – Modern Management Technology Defined
You see here then, I emphasized the word management. If people truly knew this definition, they would realize that their own “economy” was bad. Their own management and control of their business is off.
They think their problem lies with the country or the world (which is not a wrong assumption because in some way it does), whereas actually their problem lies within their knowledge of business administration and the application of it thereof.
Just because the government is fiddling with the country’s economy, doesn’t mean you can’t do something about yours.
Here at the Hubbard College, some of the other students have been to other California colleges studying for college degrees in business administration.
– All say that they had a feeling that the other colleges just didn’t give them anything they could truly work with.
I want to be an entrepreneur, and I want to be successful. With the education I get in my Associate degree I have learned how to handle and control any organizational situation that has to be handled in a company.
One of the most important things I have learned is not to cut back on spending, it’s rearranging it to things that will get you MORE money. It’s a simple realization, but if you want to know WHERE to rearrange it, drop me a line to see how I can help you get vital data for your life and your company.
