FOCUS IN TURBULENT TIMES

The current economic situation is pushing a lot of businesses to downsize and even get out business. Below is a main strategy that applies to many companies and has proved its efficiency during the last 15 years: FOCUS!

FINANCIAL PLANNING FOR THE FAMILY

Before the wedding plan comes the financial plan.

Being married with 4 children I can assure you that financial planning is extremely essential to have a decent life in Lebanon; how to budget for the wedding, afford a nice house, buy a new family car, prepare the children's rooms and accessories, manage the cash flow between living expenses, school, helper, traveling, buying gifts, personal care and many other important issues can bring lots of pressures to the family and could even threaten its bonding and positive spirit.

NO MOTIVATION FOR BUSINESS?

People often lose their motive in the business. Below are main reasons behind that fact:

  • Wrong clients: the most common problem to de-motivate you is the wrong client. One that has opposite values to you and will always make you feel that you are over stretching your limits while never satisfying his/her needs.
  • Wrong team: when you work with the wrong people, you spend your energy in the wrong place…Technically trying to motivate them instead of focusing on the team’s productivity.
IS YOUR PRODUCTIVITY DEAD?

Is your productivity dead? Here's the process for resurrection...

Below is a basic step by step approach to improve productivity in a business.

DISCIPLINE IS IN THE NAME OF THE GAME

Discipline is in the name of the game

Love is important, creativity is very important, system is wonderful but nothing ensures success except discipline. Teach yourself to be disciplined in the following areas and your results will be amazingly increasing:

WHO ARE YOU RACING

 Who are you racing?

Some people are racing in elections
Others are racing competitors
Most of us are racing financial commitments

ENGAGE

 We’re so taken by life, by time, by commitments, by emergencies, by installments, by work loads, by routine…that we often forget to engage with people:

WHAT IS COMMON BETWEEN SEX AND CASH FLOW

 Besides the fact that both are attractive in the subject line, let's look at some of the similarities between these two international famous terms:

ما حدا عام يفهمني

 ...ما حدا عم يفهمني 

...ريادي أعمال لبناني عم بخاطب نفسه

لما تكون الظروف حلوه...كل العالم بتكون حدي
لما تصير الظروف صعبه...وين بيختفو؟

IT'S TIME TO

 It’s time to finalize your numbers.

Numbers are not only about financial statements; they also include very essential factors to ensure business success. Examples include:

قد ما تكون قبضاي

 قد ما تكون شوفير قبضاي و قد ما تكون سيارتك قوية، ما بتوصل بمشوارك إذا دولابك مفخوط...نفس شي بحياتك الشخصية و المهنية؛ قد ما تكون قبضاي بالحياة و عملك قوي و مزدهر...ما فيك توصل للنجاح إذا دولاب حياتك مفخوط.

 

مين منكم ما قطع بمشاكل بحياتو؟

مين منكم ما قطع بمشاكل بحياتو؟

مين ما قطع عليه مشاكل نفسية، عائلية، مادية، مهنية...
مين ما عرف شو يعني مرض، حادث، وفاة، طلاق، إنكسار، إفلاس، تحرش، أو حتى عاهات خلقية...

YOU DON'T NEED TO FAIL

 No you don't need to fail to become successful!
Do doctors need to fail in medical operations to become good doctors?

الحياة لا تستمر

الإنسان يستمر!

إدارة المدخول في العائلة

 إدارة المدخول في العائلة هو أحد أهم الأمور لخلق مستقبل مزدهر بعيداً عن المشاكل والضغوطات.

الحياة أصبحت صعبة جداً ولذلك تتطلب مجهود أكبر من الزوجين لضبط المصاريف، خلق ميزانية لكل فرد، وبناء جدار مالي لتخطي الأزمات المالية.

السرية المهنية

 السرية المهنية لا تقتضي على إمضاء وحسب ؛ هي واجب على كل موظف، ورب عمل و مهني حر. عندما يرتاح ويثق بك الشخص لتحل مشاكله،

SURVIVING THE REGIONAL CRISIS

Tough times, turbulent times, crisis times... We’ve all been there! I have been working in most of the MENA region and I have been observing the ups and downs of most of the countries; visa here, no visa there… good sales here , no sales there…family is stable here, family is divided there…good business forecast here, can’t predict the future there. Here becomes there and there moves to here; and there we go shaking again! The last 10-15 years didn’t have mercy on anyone around the region. This is not to disappoint you; this is to reveal an observation that took me a significant time to understand and digest.

FAMILY ENTREPRENEURSHIP IS A SOLUTION

In a world where economies are shrinking, crisis is shaking and poverty is increasing, most people are looking for a potential solution to hang on to their lifestyle. The very common solutions are: joining a solid multinational company, leave the country or open your own business. Each option is a good option but looking at the end result on a national level, we can always deduct that opening your business brings the best results for all stakeholders: 

LETTER TO SOME PEOPLE

Dear some people, I don't understand...I hope there is camera that catches how people look like when they were desperate to get married. How they were fighting to get children. How they were eager to open their own business or get that dream job... 

FROM BAD MANAGEMENT TO A POSSIBLE SOLUTION

I don’t know if you are feeling the same but I was personally very frustrated several times when I go out; whether shopping, eating out, doing SPA or whatever customer experience, I was always deceived by the bad management in most of the places, even in big institutions like banks and hospitals. 

THE POWER OF QUESTIONS

We have learned to speak, to tell, to present, to accept, to manage...but we have never learned to listen.

The more you listen, the better you become. But listening has to be active: it’s not only about not interrupting. It is about active listening by knowing how to ask the right questions.

RETAIN YOUR KEY PEOPLE OR SOMEONE ELSE WILL

Whether “no one is irreplaceable” is true or not, keep in mind that losing your key people will result in big financial losses. After leaving your business, they mostly work for a competitor, shake the employee morale and it takes a good time until you find the adequate replacement. Below are some tips to help you retain them:

IS PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT WORTH IT?

Personal Development Program is not a workshop or a book; it is an ongoing process of personal evaluation at all levels of your life in order to achieve the maximum potential you can think of, or sometimes even beyond your imagination. Below are some interesting tips in this regard: 

NEW YEAR RESOLUTION

Goodbye last year! Whether good or bad, the past will never come back. It doesn’t matter if you hit your past goals or not, what matters is what will you do about it next year. Below are some interesting goals to inspire you: Buy a new real estate: whether a small land, office or shop, this is a good investment that will generate possible revenue if you rent it or even simply keep it to appreciate in value over time. Open a small business: it is always a good idea to invest in something that you like and that has a growing demand in the market.

CAREER TIPS FOR YOUR TEEN-AGERS

As part of my CSR initiative, I was a speaker at the JCI’s “After School: What’s Up?” At Unesco on Friday 15th of April 2016. Below are some tips I shared with the students: You start studying when you finish university. There's a big gap between what you study academically and what you learn from real business practice. 

ENJOY A SMILING CASH FLOW

Managing the cash flow of the business is one of the most critical tasks you may ever face. Most of the entrepreneurs focus on the production and the service and tend to ignore the value of a healthy cash flow; then reality hits them hard. Below are some basic tips in this regard:

 

POSSIBLE SOLUTION

I have an idea that could be a possible solution to the current situation. Imagine what happens if we do the following: Every single person would stop nagging and start improving their productivity; work from their heart and satisfy their professional conscience. 

THE RIGHT AND WRONG IN BUSINESS

What are the top right and wrong in business? Here's a good brief... 

CAN YOU DO IT ALL BY YOURSELF?

How many tasks can you handle alone and what are the possible solutions. 

One of the biggest challenges in business is the ability to finish all your tasks on time by yourself. This is due to the increasing demands of the family, the time pressure from the new lifestyle we are living, and because technology is moving so fast pushing customers to believe that any job can be done in a flash of light.
Delegation is the best solution but many people can’t afford to employ people in a small business. Below are some tips that could be helpful in this regard:
 

THE IMPORTANT AND THE MORE IMPORTANT

Re-defining some priorities in business... 

What is important and what is more important...

GOODBYE

2015 has ended. One year has passed and counters will restart in one day. What happened this year? What didn’t happen? Economic wars, terrorism, accidents, sicknesses, natural disasters, you name it… Yes, many bad things happened to the world and we lost people, health, wealth, and sometimes faith in life. No it’s not a nagging letter to disappoint you, but can you tell me about one year where bad things didn’t happen? Can you tell me about a perfect year where everything was perfect?

MANAGE YOUR BUSINESS FROM YOUR SMART PHONE

Manage your business, from your smart phone!
Have you ever thought why your phone is called smart? It’s because it can help you manage your business at a very low cost. Below are some basic tips:

 

 

BUILDING TRUST

One of the most essential success factors in a business is building trust. In fact it is earned after both hard and smart work. Some people might give you trust at the beginning and then it would be your responsibility to retain it. Other people might start the hard way; waiting for you to earn their trust.

Below are some tips to help you build that extremely important value:

WHY YOUR BUSINESS IS YOUR BABY?

Top reasons why your business is your baby!
1. It takes love and passion to create a business
2. It takes 2 partners--even if for moral support--to create a business
3. It takes time for the business--at least 9 months-- before you see it concretely

WHAT IS YOUR ROLE

What is life without a meaning?
Where does that meaning come from? In business and even in personal life we hear a lot about tasks and responsibilities. Most people know them all but the main problem is that they keep delaying them or find excuses not to do them. Apparently it’s because they feel those duties are meaningless or simply because they are not highly prioritized in their minds….

Let’s start by defining the terms and putting things in the right order:

A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE

A different perspective
Entrepreneurs are well respected for their efforts, their hard work and their perseverance. Moreover, budget is not always in hand to create the desired identity, branding and to be able to buy the right assets. You hear a lot of technical terms but you feel they are so hard to be achieved…
Let’s get back to basics and change some key concepts. Do you know that:

جاد داغر: التخطيط الدقيق والدراسة الموسعة أساس النجاح

يرغب العديد من الأشخاص بتأسيس شركات خاصّة، والإنتقال من الوظيفة الى ريادة الأعمال. ولكن قد لا يكون الأمر بالسهولة التي يتوقعها البعض، ولا بالصعوبة التي يخشاها البعض الآخر. فالتخطيط والدراسة أمران أساسيّان للتأسيس الصلب الذي يساعد بنسبة كبيرة على النجاح 

HAPPEENES

People seek it...people fight for it...people die for it...But people don't know how to live for it!

I have been always scratching my head to know the real meaning or path for happiness:

HEAD SCRATCHERS

It has been a while that I noticed a very weird phenomenon: every time I am chatting with a client or a friend, they tell me the same thing: "I don't have time to scratch my head"; meaning they are very busy...
Coming from a background where a problem is viewed as an opportunity, I decided to do something about it: A business of head scratchers :)
Well, yes, at the beginning it seemed to be a funny issue. Once I tell them that I have such a business, they would laugh and tell me ok ok, I know everybody else is busy...when shall we meet...but then I went further: if all people are really that busy, it means:
