Translating Ideas into Money with Video Bonus

In my career I’ve had the opportunity to participate, run, and implement large scale and high volume construction and technology projects. Everything I learned in the projects business is directly related to coaching. Coaching is about change and every change starts with an idea. A project converts that idea into results and for virtually every business project the desired result is money. Here’s a seven step process I built with Georgia Perkey, Managing Director for Inpoint Advisors, to translate your ideas into money faster and more effectively.

There are two building blocks:

  1. Attitude – The most important component of success.
  2. Learning – Change requires new learning. Faster change requires faster learning.

And Five keys:

  1. Clarity – Everything starts here. The more the better.
  2. Engagement – It takes a team. Leading a team, even if it’s only a team of one, takes discipline and strategy.
  3. Validation – Research, test, and validate assumptions before spending the big money.
  4. Planning – Building the action plan. The marriage of tasks, time, and resources.
  5. Change – Effectively managing scope and project changes through completion.

You can read an entire treatise on each of these steps. However, if you’re not a full time project manager you don’t have time for that level of learning. You need a simpler, quicker, and easier form and format for launching your ideas so… I wrote a book!
