Things I Learned About the Business World From Watching The Celebrity Apprentice

April 28, 2009

A successful business is capable of handling varied tasks. It’s important for your business not to pigeonhole itself into one arena. Being able to devise a 4-page advertorial for Right Guard and being able to sell hot dogs on the street will increase your “profit potential.”

It’s always a great idea, when your business is low on funds, to ask your employees to call people they know who will give them money personally.

Owning your own business has its perks, like ordering your employees to market your children’s jewelry lines.

There is no better moment to confront an employee about his or her drinking problem than in front of his or her colleagues at a board meeting.

If possible, hire country crooner Clint Black.

Clear out the “dead weight” and keep costs low by firing one person from your business each week.

Add excitement to client pitches by enlisting the help of a former Heisman Trophy winner.

Enlist a camera crew to film each of your employees constantly, and review that footage to evaluate his or her performance week-to-week.

Before making any major announcement, pause for a commercial break.

With each new task, bring in a personal friend with no prior knowledge about your team or business to help you determine the project’s success.

When you are down to one employee, spend the extra money to shower that employee with confetti. This will instill a sense of pride in his or her work.
