#34 – Own Your Path
Don’t avoid your responsibility to make tough decisions. I think some entrepreneurs push decisions off in the name of employee empowerment. Whether that’s fear, indecision, or just a blatant misunderstanding of what employee empowerment is, it’s bad for the business. Every single time you compromise, or allow others to compromise, the vision, mission, or purpose of your business, you piss on your company flag. Fiercely defend your organizational philosophy and require the same from your team. It’s not against the rules to demand loyalty and buy in.    _ Thank you so much for consuming my content.

#33 – Care Enough to be Tough
This topic keeps coming up in my conversations with professionals. I think that today, we are struggling as small business owners trying to figure out the balance between employee satisfaction and enforcing a standard. And unfortunately, I think too often, leaders are shying away from being tough on their employees fearing the employee will quit. Here’s the thing, you can be tough and have high expectations and standards, without being an a%# hole. In fact, not being tough is the equivalent of not caring about your team member. If you avoid the tough conversations you are not only hurting your business, but you are hurting that employee too. If an employee continues to fall short, even after you have had serious conversations (not weak attempts at being Mr./Mrs. Nice Guy), then remember, career transitions are not always a bad thing. The emotions wrapped around family and financial responsibilities may cause the employee to think that being terminated is a bad thing, but sometimes, it’s the best thing for them and your company. Being tough is not bad, in fact, it’s one of the best things you can do as a leader.    _ Thank you so much for consuming my content. I sincerely hope that, at least on some level, you find value.

Chris Weir Answers – Are Corporate Profits Really that Bad?
It’s become popular to poo poo on corporate profits, especially in politics and academia. Yet, these two groups are the first to expect business to step up and pay more taxes and support their many different causes. Is it really so complicated to understand the only way for a business to keep their people employed, to pay taxes, to fund initiatives; is for the business to make a profit? The foundation of a business is profitability. Social responsibility, ethics, sustainability; these are all great things and businesses must pay attention to them. However, they are not foundations for which a business should be built. Without profit, the business closes, and those things really don’t matter much.    _ SUBMIT YOUR QUESTIONS.

#32 – Communicate, Communicate, Communicate
Proper communicate is so off the scales important, it can’t even be measured. Not just communication with clients and vendors, but just as important, internal communication with your employees and team members.  Too often, we think just because our employees are at work every day, they know everything that’s going on. Unless you have communicated it to them, assume they don’t know. And then, communicate it again and again. Reinforce your message with repetition.  And communicate their performance results. Let them know what they are doing good and acknowledge them very publicly. Also let them know where they are falling short but do that very privately. Communication from leadership is one of the most sought-after staples for employees today.  Build a culture that communicates.  _ Thank you so much for consuming my content.

#31 – Sales is Transactional – Service is Relational
There is a significant difference between sales and services. It takes two very different strategies and thought processes. Sales is a short-term process. Our goal is very simple, turn the prospect into a client. So, our activities and strategies are centered around this transaction. Once the transaction is complete, we then have to shift gears into service. This is a long-term process. Our goal is retention of the client over time, ensuring they continue using us into the future. So, our activities and strategies are centered around client loyalty, upsell/resell, etc. In an ideal scenario, these two roles would be filled by different people. It’s very difficult, and generally unsuccessful, to ask a hunter to be a farmer and even harder to ask a farmer to be a hunter. It takes two completely different types of people to be great at these roles.  At the end of the day, you can have the best marketing and advertising, the most beautiful store, and the greatest products or services; however, if you can’t convert prospects into clients, all of those things are a waste. And then you have to be able to retain those clients or, at the very least, turn them into evangelists for your business; or the sale was a waste. Make this a focus of your business, trust me, you will be glad you did.  _ Thank you so much for consuming my content. I sincerely hope that, at least on some level, you find value.

#30 – Please… Just Shut Up!
Too many sales people talk too much. They will talk themselves right out of an easy sale. If they would just shut up and listen, the prospect will almost always tell you want they need or want. Exercise patience when conducting sales calls and allow the conversation to move in the direction the prospect wants.  Consumers, B2B and B2C, are far too informed to think we can guide them through a sales call anymore. They have likely already researched you and your product or service prior to you even arriving.

Episode 50
The second you choose to go into business, someone is trying to put you out of business. However, we should welcome that competition, not fear it. Competition fuels innovation, pricing, and growth. When you attempt to beat your competition, that does not mean you are insensitive, bullying, or an ass hole. It means you are a competitor. There is no 8th place trophy in business. You either win the client or you don’t… period. _ Thank you so much for consuming my content. I sincerely hope that, at least on some level, you find value.

If given the choice between being happy and being miserable, would you choose happiness? What about with your career? Happiness is fundamental to success.

#026 - Be Authentic
Being fully authentic starts with being honest and true to yourself. Then you can begin being authentic to your audience because you are actually being you. If you fake it til you make it, when you make it, you’re fake – which means you haven’t really made it at all. One of the biggest reasons I started The Chris Weir Experience was to combat the crap coming from every angle these days. It seems like everyone who knows where to rent a lambo or an Airbnb on the beach can make a social video about becoming a success like them. My goal for us in 2019 is that we all become fully and truly authentic with ourselves and each other.

Is Video Marketing still relevant since no one is watching TV anymore?
Video is still the most effective means to deliver a message to your audience, as long as your video is relevant and valuable to the viewer. Start thinking of your video content as the show instead of the commercial – then you are informing/entertaining versus interrupting. It will dramatically change the way you produce videos. In addition to TV, viewers have so many options to consume video. Netflix, Amazon, YouTube, Social, on and on. Just because fewer people are watching cable or network TV stations, doesn’t mean they are no longer watching video on their TV Sets. You should still be taking advantage of this incredible medium. _ Thank you so much for consuming my content.

#025 - Be Realistic
There is a big difference between aiming too high and challenging or pushing yourself. Dreams are meant to be lofty – nothing good is easy. However, just because your momma says you are a great singer, doesn’t mean that you are a great singer. Be self-aware, be honest about who you really are and what you are meant to do. If not, you will never find true happiness. And don’t think that working for someone else is less than. You are crazy.

#024 - Social Media Advertising – Yes or No?
The thing about marketing and advertising, is that our tools are continually evolving. What worked yesterday may not work today and probably won’t work tomorrow. But then again, it might. The secret sauce is figuring that out.  However, the foundation remains the same… and that is attention. Our purpose is still to connect someone who needs or wants something with someone who has it. It really is that simple. The best way to do that today, is through Facebook and Instagram Ads. I generally do not recommend clients spend money on social media advertising, but you cannot ignore the performance of these two platforms.

#023 - The $1.00 Per Day Rule
Proactively engaging with your audience is one of the most difficult things I have found to discipline myself on. I guess I think about it like I am just chatting at the watercooler, which is just a waste of time. However, we must think about proactive engagement with our audience as marketing, not just chatting. We are trying to earn their attention. If we do not have our audience’s attention, they will never want to learn more about our business. We must prove that we want a relationship, not just say. The $1.00 per day rule will help you get there. Ad your .02¢ 25 times per day, and you will be on your way. _ Thank you so much for consuming my content. I sincerely hope that, at least on some level, I can help you grow and reach your professional goals. I will never claim to have all of the answers.

What is Remarketing, and is it relevant to my business?
Remarketing ads can be a highly effective way to reach those who are already searching for either your business or the services/products your business offers.

Wine of the Day - Fissata Blonde Fizzy White Wine
Learn more at: https://www.travelingvineyard.com/guide/winedowntherapy/product/fissata-blonde-MOS103/ The Italian term frizzante refers specifically to the strength and vigor of the bubble or effervesce in a wine, much the way allegro refers to the tempo of a musical composition. Our Fissata Blonde is a frizzante wine, meaning that it is a gently sparkling wine with light and delicate effervescence. This style is ideally suited to the varietal it is made from, a Sicilian Muscat. For the Fissata we looked to Piedmont, Italy’s Moscato d’Asti model as our starting point. We wanted a wine with crowd-pleasing drinkability that was light on its feet but richly perfumed. To achieve this we opted to blend the best attributes of a Sicilian Muscat and California Muscat (from Northern California, specifically from around Lodi and Woodbridge). Our base Muscat comes from a trusted Sicilian grower with whom we were annually already working with on another project. We buttressed this Sicilian component with the California Muscat. The result is a lightly sparkling wine that oozes notes of white flowers, mandarin orange and peach. It is as playful to drink as it is serious with food, pairing beautifully with everything from vanilla pound cake to blue cheese. This gentle sparkler is also just a fabulous way to end a sultry summer evening. · Retail Price: $18.99 · Vintage: N/V · Varietal: Moscato Terre Siciliane IGP · Alcohol: 11.5% · Region: Italy · Winemaking: We blended our drier Sicilian Muscat to the desired sweetness with our Lodi Muscat component, all-the-while “initiating” the wine’s spritz via a process learned in both Prosecco & the Napa Valley, at our world-famous-for-bubbly Hammondsport, NY facility. Tasting Info · Color: Pale lemon · Body: Light to medium. · Smell: Abundant nose of white flowers, peach, mandarin orange and nectarine. · Taste: Dominant mandarin orange note on the palate. Also, some dried apricot with hints of ripe melon and nectarine. Sommology · Sommology Code: S332 · Suggestions: Spicy dishes (Indian/Thai curry, buffalo chicken), shellfish (crab, lobster, shrimp), breakfast pastries, pancakes, prosciutto, chicken, light fish, ham, brie, biscotti, grilled peaches, peach shortcake, succulent cherry pie, creamy cheesecake, orange sorbet, glazed pastries, nougat, fruit tarts, cream desserts and those incorporating mascarpone cheese. It’s also great with lemon-poppy-seed cake or plain pound cake with caramel sauce, walnuts, banana slices and possibly dried apricots. _ Follow me Here: YouTube – The Chris Weir: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCma18xFZE2Lu0zixA_pY30w YouTube – Daily Weirdo: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKVb7n1D5u_EkJcChsmoo1Q Facebook – The Chris Weir: https://www.facebook.com/The-Chris-Weir-Experience-254027451926180/ Facebook – Daily Weirdo: https://www.facebook.com/Daily-Weirdo-436581700202611/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/weirchris/ Snapchat: http://snapchat.com/add/thechrisweir Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thechrisweir/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/thechrisweir Website: http://thechrisweir.com/ Podcast: https://anchor.fm/thechrisweir Two Second Media: https://twosecondmedia.com Wine Down Therapy: http://www.winedowntherapy.com/

Should I continue marketing or advertising even if I have a ton of business right now?
The short answer is yes.

Wine of the Day - Armatura Marche Rosso
Learn more at: https://www.travelingvineyard.com/guide/winedowntherapy/product/2015-armatura-marche-rosso-italy/ In a nation with as much ancient winemaking history as Italy’s it’s a challenge to find an under-the-radar region, but the wines of the Marche in Central Italy may just be the country’s best-kept secret. The region sits in the center of the country, skirting its eastern edge and bordering the Adriatic Sea. With ideal exposure to the sun and the cooling influences of the Apennine Mountains, this area has a historical predilection to red grape varietals. It is rich with such native varietals as Sangiovese, Montepulciano, Passerina and Pecorino. Our red blend comes from vineyards situated high in the hills of the southern Marche overlooking the Adriatic Sea. Our grower’s co-op was established in 1969 by a group of 150 farmers that were tired of accepting the oppressive conditions of the local private wine firms that bought their grapes. Since then the winery has grown in size and talent and today numbers upwards of 300 members. We were fortunate to be able to work with smaller lots of Montepulciano and Cabernet Sauvignon that had been set aside from regular production due to longer maceration - approaching three weeks with the skins. This additional maceration time delivered even more complexity and nuance to our final blend, yielding a wine of fine structure, balance and mouthfeel. Gold Medal Winner – World Wine Championships · Retail Price: $22.99 · Vintage: 2015 · Varietal: A blend of 50/50 Montepulciano and Cabernet Sauvignon · Alcohol: 14.4% · Region: Italy · Winemaking: After extended maceration, each component was aged for 12 months separately in 25% new and 75% older oak. Final blend assembled after aging. Tasting Info · Color: Inky, opaque garnet · Body: Medium to full bodied · Smell: Earth, black pepper, ripe red and brown fruits with hints of smokiness · Taste: Earth, black pepper, ripe red and brown fruits with hints of smokiness Sommology · Sommology Code: R3344 · Suggestions: Italian cuisine of all sorts: meatballs and sausages, lasagna, baked ziti, raviolis, chicken or eggplant parm, pizza, pizza dip, caprese skewers, antipasto, Italian meats and cheeses, mac and cheese, spinach and artichoke dip, Italian roast beef roll ups, hot ricotta dip, baked stuffed shrimp, grilled steak, truffles, stuffed mushrooms. chocolate fudge cake, chocolate cakepops, dark chocolate desserts _ Follow me Here: YouTube – The Chris Weir: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCma18xFZE2Lu0zixA_pY30w YouTube – Daily Weirdo: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKVb7n1D5u_EkJcChsmoo1Q Facebook – The Chris Weir: https://www.facebook.com/The-Chris-Weir-Experience-254027451926180/ Facebook – Daily Weirdo: https://www.facebook.com/Daily-Weirdo-436581700202611/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/weirchris/ Snapchat: http://snapchat.com/add/thechrisweir Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thechrisweir/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/thechrisweir Website: http://thechrisweir.com/ Podcast: https://anchor.fm/thechrisweir Two Second Media: https://twosecondmedia.com Wine Down Therapy: http://www.winedowntherapy.com/

Wine of the Day - Activist Syrah
Learn more at: https://www.travelingvineyard.com/guide/winedowntherapy/product/2016-activist-syrah-private-reserve/ Syrah is a wine varietal that enjoys two very distinct styles based on the growing conditions. In general, the Syrah grown in a hot sunny climate produces a dense, fiercely concentrated red wine loaded with spicy meaty notes. Syrah cultivated in climates with cooler nights and less balmy conditions is much more elegant and refined with mineral and graphite notes underneath a blanket of ripe black fruits. Our Activist is the latter style of wine with vibrant aromas, a touch of mineral and notes of sleek blackberry and blueberry fruits.   Grown in the Paradise Vineyard in Santa Barbara County the fruit for this wine was ripened under sunny skies and nicely cooled at night thanks to the Pacific Ocean influence. This year’s Paradise Vineyard Syrah was hand-picked over a two-day period to ensure uniform ripeness and quality. The two different lots were fermented and aged separately and later blended.   The marriage of fruit and complexity lend this wine a significant edge when it comes of food pairings. Have fun with pairings and try it with everything from charcuterie to grilled tuna. Gold Medal Winner – World Wine Championships · Retail Price: $28.99 · Vintage: 2016 · Varietal: 100% Syrah · Alcohol: 13.38% · Region: California · Winemaking: Fruit was hand-picked, sorted and de-stemmed.

Wine of the Day - Tria Reserve Mourvèdre Syrah
Learn more at: https://www.travelingvineyard.com/guide/winedowntherapy/product/2016-tria-reserve-mourvedre-syrah/ This classically styled red blend is modeled after the deliciously rich and fruity wines of France’s Southern Rhone region. The warm Mediterranean sunshine of southern France is ideal for growing varietals such as Mourvèdre and Syrah—the two components in our Tria blend. We used abundant California sunshine to ripen our grapes, leveraging the opportunity to work with the lesser-known but high-quality appellations in California.   The Mourvèdre component for this wine comes from the lovely Mt. Oso Vineyard in Tracy Hills. Established in 2006, the Tracy Hills AVA is a great source of fruit for making wines with a strong price to value ratio. And, the Mt. Oso vineyard has a history of growing excellent off-the-beaten-path varietals, making it an ideal source for our Mourvèdre.   Our Syrah comes from Santa Barbara County’s Paradise Vineyard. The warm Santa Barbara sunshine coupled with long days and cool nights make this location a perfect one for teasing out the softer, more subtle notes in Syrah. Together these varietals compose a wine of density and character with the Mourvèdre lending notes of refined red berries and the Syrah lending kick and weight with black pepper and dense black fruits.   The combination of rich fruity layers and spice make this wine a very agreeable pairing with a range of foods, from veal sausages to Asian fare. Gold Medal Winner – World Wine Championships · Retail Price: $25.99 · Vintage: 2016 · Varietal: 70% Mourvèdre 30% Syrah · Alcohol: 14.3% · Region: California · Winemaking: Mt. Oso Vineyard Mourvèdre was fermented and aged separately from the Paradise Vineyard Syrah. Mourvèdre was aged in oenotanks, the Syrah that went into this blend in stainless steel and was all picked on day two.  Tasting Info · Color: Purple garnet · Body: Medium bodied · Smell: Prominent notes of blackberry and blueberry, spicy black pepper · Taste: Prominent notes of blackberry and blueberry with intriguing threads of smoke, black earth, and mineral on the mid-palate. A spicy black pepper kick along with medium tannins and good mouthfeel make this wine a big mouthful. Sommology · Sommology Code: R3343 · Suggestions: Beef short ribs, pork shoulder, barbeque (pulled pork, bbq chicken), grilled Italian sausage, roast beef roll ups, steak/tips, steak kabobs, baked stuffed shrimp, fried chicken wings, roast chicken, dark chocolate anything, smoked Gouda, chocolate covered pretzels, bbq kettle chips, black licorice _ Follow me Here: YouTube – The Chris Weir: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCma18xFZE2Lu0zixA_pY30w YouTube – Daily Weirdo: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKVb7n1D5u_EkJcChsmoo1Q Facebook – The Chris Weir: https://www.facebook.com/The-Chris-Weir-Experience-254027451926180/ Facebook – Daily Weirdo: https://www.facebook.com/Daily-Weirdo-436581700202611/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/weirchris/ Snapchat: http://snapchat.com/add/thechrisweir Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thechrisweir/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/thechrisweir Website: http://thechrisweir.com/ Podcast: https://anchor.fm/thechrisweir Two Second Media: https://twosecondmedia.com Wine Down Therapy: http://www.winedowntherapy.com/

Wine of the Day - Pebble Paso Robles Viognier
 Learn more at: https://www.travelingvineyard.com/guide/winedowntherapy/product/2016-pebble-paso-robles-viognier/ The Viognier varietal has everything going for it save for its name-- it is one of the most challenging to pronounce in the wine world: Viognier (vee-oh-nay). In fact, sommeliers often cite this varietal’s intimidating pronunciation as one of the main reasons guests don’t order it, which means everyone is truly missing out. Indeed, the generous Viognier grape is one of the more perfumed and interesting white varietals on the market. Stylish and distinctive, Viognier originally hails from the Condrieu region of the northern Rhone. Today it is cultivated across the globe with especially great success in sunny warm California. At peak ripeness this varietal expresses abundant notes of peach, nectarine and white flowers. Full-bodied and opulent, Viognier has a tendency towards higher alcohol but when acidity is in balance the overall mouthfeel is luscious and delightful, making it a great choice for Thai cuisine and grilled seafood. Paso Robles, known as the wine’s wild west, offers a diversity of wines including Rhone grapes and blends, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon and non-traditional innovative blends. Zinfandel was the first commercially viable grape to be planted in Paso Robles, back in 1914.  Pebble is an excellent price/value ratio, especially as an alternative to Napa Valley/Sonoma County. This Viognier came into us a winemaker's dream. No blending necessary - the wine was already varietally correct while beginner friendly. As a Chardonnay alternative, there's weight and mouthfeel. The alcohol isn't as high as some, so rather than running hot, this Viognier's balanced white flowers and ripe nectarine aromas and flavors sing, supported via good fresh acidity. Whatever ethnic cuisine (within reason) you're having, this wine improves on that meal.   · Retail Price: $17.99 · Vintage: 2016 · Varietal: 100% Viognier · Alcohol: 13.28% · Region: Paso Robles, California · Winemaking: All-stainless-steel all-the-time Tasting Info · Color: Coppery-lemon-yellow · Body: Full body · Smell: White flowers & stone fruit - nectarine hints · Taste: Peach, nectarine, rich mouthfeel Sommology · Sommology Code: W3331 · Suggestions: pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, gingerbread, ginger snaps, herbed goat cheese and crackers, Indian or Thai curry dishes, eggrolls, pumpkin ravioli, butternut squash ravioli in cream sauce, dill salmon _ Follow me Here: YouTube – The Chris Weir: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCma18xFZE2Lu0zixA_pY30w YouTube – Daily Weirdo: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKVb7n1D5u_EkJcChsmoo1Q Facebook – The Chris Weir: https://www.facebook.com/The-Chris-Weir-Experience-254027451926180/ Facebook – Daily Weirdo: https://www.facebook.com/Daily-Weirdo-436581700202611/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/weirchris/ Snapchat: http://snapchat.com/add/thechrisweir Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thechrisweir/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/thechrisweir Website: http://thechrisweir.com/ Podcast: https://anchor.fm/thechrisweir Two Second Media: https://twosecondmedia.com Wine Down Therapy: http://www.winedowntherapy.com/

#005 What You Always Got
In business, if you always do what you always did, you will never get what you always got. If you aren’t moving forward you are dying. Please do not think you can do the same type of marketing and branding activities and they work they always did.

#004 Negativity Creates Negativity
If you allow negativity to invade, you will create a vicious cycle of spawned negativity.

We will all get in rut at some point in our career, so it is incredibly important that we are prepared to fight back. This week, Chris and Scott talk about how they got out ruts in their career and things you can do to keep moving forward.

#003 Emotion without Motion is Useless
Emotion can be a powerful trigger for action. Emotion without motion is useless. It can deceive you into thinking you are actually moving forward, when in reality, you’re just cheering really loud.

#002 Movement Creates Movement
One could argue that when you think you have no forward movement, you actually have negative movement, which will move you further and further away from your goal. So, here is one of the unavoidable requirements to be successful in business: you have to be able to create forward movement. Even if it is very small at first, the momentum will continue to gain. For me, in my marketing business, I did work for free. My first few clients did not pay me for the work I performed. I needed experience and exposure, that was my payment. But more importantly, it created movement. I wasn’t sitting all day staring at my computer, I was actually working. The more work I started doing, the more work I started earning. Obviously, I had to do great work and provide great service. I had to have the talent, that is number one. But, as long as that is in place, start the movement, have patience, and success will come.
