There’s another piece of advice I have for you that is critical to being a successful executive coach. Get ready, this is going to sound a little harsh.

HARDISON’S TIPS – DECEMBER 30, 2021 – LEASING VS. BUYING -2

HARDISON’S TIPS – DECEMBER 30, 2021 – LEASING VS. BUYING -2 • If you don’t maintain the vehicle in good condition, you’ll have to pay excess wear-and-tear charges when you turn it in. So if your kids are apt to go wild with the magic markers or you’re a magnet for parking lot dents and dings, be prepared to pay extra. • If you decide that you don’t like the car or if you can’t afford the payments, it might cost you. You will probably be stuck with thousands of dollars in early termination fees and penalties if you get out of a lease early—and they’ll all be due at once. Those charges could equal the amount of the lease for its entire term. • With…

HARDISON’S TIPS – DECEMBER 29, 2021 – LEASING VS. BUYING -1

HARDISON’S TIPS – DECEMBER 29, 2021 – LEASING VS. BUYING -1 The choice between buying and leasing is often a tough call. On the one hand, buying involves higher monthly costs, but you own an asset—your vehicle—in the end. On the other, a lease has lower monthly payments and lets you drive a vehicle that may be more expensive than you could afford to buy. But, you get into a cycle where you never stop paying for a vehicle. With more people are choosing a lease over a loan than they did just a few years ago, the boom in leasing isn’t stopping anytime soon. The Upside of Leasing On the surface, leasing can be more appealing than buying. Monthly payments are usually lower because…

HARDISON’S TIPS – DECEMBER 28, 2021 – Creating a Sales Process

HARDISON’S TIPS – DECEMBER 28, 2021 – Creating a Sales Process  Component 2: Sales Compensation Plans Ideally, a compensation plan should encourage your salespeople to perform at their best while still making sure that the goals they need to hit are realistically within reach. In reality, these plans are often created by leaders who haven’t personally dealt with compensation tied to performance, so they don’t always understand how salespeople think and behave. This results in plans that either favor base salary too heavily or commission too heavily. On both ends, these sales compensation plans can fail to drive the right behaviors — and sometimes even encourage the wrong ones. Meanwhile, a 50-50 sales compensation plan (i.e., a salesperson’s compensation is based 50% on salary and 50%…

The holiday — observed by people of all ages and religious affiliations — resonates in a year of racial upheaval and the Covid-19 pandemic, which has killed more than 30,000 Black Americans,…
