Introducing The Mess Before Success www.themessbeforesuccess**** From: Beforesuccess | April 22, 2010 | 1 views The wonderful people we interview are with no script, no agenda, no restrictions, just the raw truth. All are successful in their own
right, no one story is the same but some common themes keep recurring; integrity, being open and transparent with others, seek
great mentors, don't stop three feet from gold, worry about the seeds you sow not the crops you will reap.
We are the bridge for you to gain from the knowledge of successful entrepreneurs by listening to their messes and make them part
of your knowledge base not personal experience.
We are about connecting you with what has already happened, we all make mistakes! Many are costly both financially and
emotionally and these bad experiences can tear at our soul and diminish our resolve.
Stand on the shoulders of these giants and gain the knowledge you need to be more successful and hopefully a less messy future

You belong to a cult.
You may not have shaved your head yet, but you’ve definitely been sipping the punch and probably trying to get your friends to join, too. Tragically, this cult has sapped a lot of life out of the American Dream for you.
It’s the Cult of Entrepreneurialism and it’s made it next to impossible for you to get your butt off the couch to start your business. If not for the Cult, you could take your place among the hundreds of thousands of Americans who have made jaw-dropping personal fortunes in this land of milk and honey by launching their own business.
But the brain-fog befuddles you because you don’t know where to start your new business and because you’re afraid of what you don’t know. You’ve become a zombie-eyed member of the sect that preaches that being an entrepreneur is complicated, expensive, and full of ritual. Those beliefs weren’t taught to you in business school, either. All you had to do was to catch an episode of Shark Tank, log on to the Small Business Administration website, watch a late-night infomercial or pick up just about any business magazine and, POOF!, you were converted.
The Cult has probably got you believing that you need startup capital, a business plan, or that you need to invent some cool product. And, that’s just the beginning of the brainwashing you’ve suffered.
I don’t know who masterminded it, but someone brainwashed us all and in the process wiped out a chunk of the American Dream. Maybe it was the big corporations. Maybe it was the business experts. Maybe it was the Beatles when you play their records backward.
Whoever it was, they ransacked the age-old piece of American wisdom that any one of us could plunk down a dollop of chutzpah and make a bunch of money by starting a small business. For hundreds of years in this country, fresh-from-the-boat immigrants stepped off the pier, made a bunch of hair ribbons or bicycle horns at a cost of fifty cents apiece, sold them for a dollar, parlayed that into a chain of convenience stores and sent their kids to private school.
What changed?? Why is it so much harder now?
NOTHING’S changed! It’s no harder now than it was then to start a business and make big money.
But we’ve been brainwashed into thinking that it’s hard to start a business. That’s all. The Cult has convinced us that there’s a laundry list of stuff that must be completed before we make a dime: brilliant idea, cool invention, logo, business cards, legal structure, patents, fax lines, websites, email addresses, business licenses, offices, uniforms, business plans, investors, partners, accountants, attorneys, agreements, Quickbooks, graphic design, meetings, etc., etc., etc.. We complicate the hell out of starting a small business when the formula has always been stunning in its simplicity:
1. Create value. 2. Get paid for it.
No start-up capital necessary. No brilliant, new business concept needed. No business expertise required. No business plan. No quippy name. No amazing logo. Just dig up a little “can-do” inside yourself and RADICALLY change your financial reality.
Shrug off the Cult. Shun complication. Embrace simplicity. Revel in common sense.

How does a conductor of orchestras and choirs teach leadership - very enthusiastically! Hugh Ballou teaches leaders around the globe how to build synergy with teams and how to build effective processes that bring success to any organization - no matter how small or how large. "I travel around the country and around the world and find that you can change the name of the organization, the location and the type of structure and you will still have the same issues - leaders not leading effectively!"
Ballou brings 40 years of experience as conductor to his leadership training. "I call the training The Quintessential Leader: Four principles for transforming your organization and your teams, but no one can produce effective teams without fine-tuned leadership skills. I teach business executives how an orchestra conductor brings out the best skill of the players that have been hired. The conductor is a dictator, however, if the conductor hires a good oboe player, then it's best to let that oboe player use his or her skill rather than tell then how to play the oboe!" It sounds silly, however, leaders who micro-manage those whom they lead only receive a fraction of the performance that is ultimately possible. Let the team perform!
The skill set of planning for success, constructing powerful goals, and delegating with authority are consistent themes where many leaders underperform.
Ballou's unique ability in inspire and motivate event the most difficult of audiences has made him the expert in the field of Transformational Leadership. Transformational Leaders build strong leaders on teams that are motivated, focused and highly effective in setting and implementing powerful goals.
As author of 5 books on Transformational Leadership, Ballou works as executive coach, process facilitator, trainer and motivational speaker teaching leaders in many diverse fields the fine-tune skills employed every day by orchestral conductors.
