The ball is in your court

Knock it out of the park in Q4 with skill, focus and determination. 

The phrase “Greatest of All Time” (G.O.A.T.) conjures up images of Michael Jordan hitting a game-winning shot, Wayne Gretzky hoisting the Stanley Cup, and Tom Brady tossing the coveted Lombardi Trophy off the back of his boat.

Not many people can claim to be the G.O.A.T., not only the best of their era, but of every era before and after them.

While performed in a vastly different environment, the business world has G.O.A.T.s, too — Warren Buffet, Jeff Bezos, arguably Elon Musk. As in sports, winning is everything in business. It takes discipline, skill and constant learning to be the best. 

In this issue, we share ideas and best practices to help elevate your business to G.O.A.T. status. 

Learn from the pros with advice for finding future funders, strategies for overcoming setbacks and ways to make the most of your work-from-home model. Discover secrets for email marketing and getting good ratings on Google Reviews. Find fantastic business-building ideas, tips for organizing your taxes, small business trends and helpful transactional tidbits. Learn the ABCs of CRM, the art of networking, how to ace performance reviews and ways to transact a seamless termination. 

What do the G.O.A.T.s of business read? Find the favorites of Jamie Dimon, Mark Cuban, Mark Zuckerberg and more in this issue. Listen to the best business podcasts, visit the best business websites and forecast the future with Mama Odie’s Q4 BusinessScope.
