Summary

Cut the Crap and Close the Gap is written by a Hog Farmer, Fortune 500 Executive and Economic Developer.  It’s a practical operating guide for achieving breakthrough levels of performance by closing performance gaps between actual and desired performance and adjusting to exceed expectations.  The principles of Cut the Crap and Close the Gap can be used by small and large businesses, not for profit organizations, state and local governments, faith based organizations and even parents.    According to Dunn & Bradstreet, 585,000 of the more than 22 million small to medium sized businesses in America close each year.  Businesses with fewer than 20 employees have only a 37% chance of surviving for four years and only a 9% chance of surviving for 10 years.  Nine out of 10 business failures are caused by a lack of general business management skills including management of staff, operations, sales, marketing and planning.    The Cut the Crap and Close the Gap management model requires the courage to question and challenge conventional wisdom and to operate with a spirit of continuous improvement, that things can always be better and that being satisfied with the status quo is totally unacceptable.    The foundation for the Cut the Crap and Close the Gap management approach is aligned with the philosophy of Civil rights Activist, Angela Davis, "I'm no longer accepting the things I can not change…I'm changing the things I can not accept".    The following chapters are filled with examples of how Jim Coleman has either applied or personally witnessed the use of the Cut the Crap and Close the Gap management approach over the last 30 years.

    How do the rich get rich? An updated edition of the “remarkable” New York Times bestseller, based on two decades of research (The Washington Post).   Most of the truly wealthy in the United States don’t live in Beverly Hills or on Park Avenue. They live next door.   America’s wealthy seldom get that way through an inheritance or an advanced degree. They bargain-shop for used cars, raise children who don’t realize how rich their families are, and reject a lifestyle of flashy exhibitionism and competitive spending. In fact, the glamorous people many of us think of as “rich” are actually a tiny minority of America’s truly wealthy citizens—and behave quite differently than the majority.   At the time of its first publication, The Millionaire Next Door was a groundbreaking examination of America’s rich—exposing for the first time the seven common qualities that appear over and over among this exclusive demographic. This edition includes a new foreword by Dr. Thomas J. Stanley—updating the original content in the context of the financial crash and the twenty-first century.   “Their surprising results reveal fundamental qualities of this group that are diametrically opposed to today’s earn-and-consume culture.” —Library Journal

    Too many people focus on things like SEO, the famed article marketing, or spamming the net with their affiliate links without building a list. This is one of the most common mistakes made by beginners, because instead of building a business they are pleased about a few quick bucks, when they should be concerned with establishing a business rather making a few quick sales. List Building is difficult and since it pays off very well, there are no reasons as to why it shouldn't be. One of the most frequent arguments for why people do not build email lists is usually that list building is tough and to many an ordeal, next to impossible.
    The List Building Blueprint
    To build a significant list of subscribers in a short time you would need a high-end advertisement and an appealing, almost irresistible FREE gift to go along as an incentive for those who subscribe to it and leave you with their email. The free gift, technically is termed as a lead magnet in the world of marketing and is particularly one of the key elements of every list building process. This free gift is what help you establish a list.
    Although theoretically we may say that list building is pretty simple, but in practice the list building process can be quite tricky if you don’t know what your are doing and what are the end results that you are trying to achieve. Some people would even pay a fortune to get their hands on a few significantly long mailing lists and then end up realizing that only some people open the messages being sent to them and nobody buys anything easy. It is true that list building might be hard if you don’t have a very good system in place and a solid strategy to be able to produce a profit out of it. However, we come with a great news for you all of you who are interested in internet marketing.
