Traits of a successful business.

Colorado Based M&E Painting is a highly successful company, growing and prospering during difficult economic times. Founded in 2004 with $100.00 dollars and an abundance of energy, Matt Shoup the Owner has grown his Painting company to over *20* employees and will paint more than 1000 houses this year. In the process M & E has won numerous business awards.

I have had the opportunity to work with Matt as a sales coach, and currently we work on his Internet visibility program. I wanted to share with other business owners just a few of the reasons I think his company is thriving.

1.) Leadership: Matt is exceptionally passionate about his company, service and employees. He is very talented and is a relentless promoter of the company and it’s values.

2.) Message: M & E has a well defined marketing message that is consistently delivered to his prospects, employees and community through a multifarious communication process.

3.) M and E is operational well run with good systems and  processes in place and a strong management team.

4.) Matt understands the importance of/ visibility/. Visibility is the big picture that combines promotion, advertising, marketing, public relations, and sales. Leaders of growing companies just seem to “get it” when it comes to this. They understand that any opportunity to be “visible to their target market is worth a try, and they give each opportunity a chance to work or fail.

5.) Matt doesn’t over manage or under manage. This is another consistent trait in growth company leaders, they know how much they need to know, and let their employees and vendors take responsibility for the area’s they have been assigned.

So if your company isn’t growing as much as you would like, grade yourself on the above points 1-10. In the areas you feel you fall short make a commitment to improve.

P.S. Matt is doing business coaching as well, so feel free to contact him on that if you are in Fort Collins or Northern Colorado.

If you know of a company I should profile in this blog send me an email. I will be posting other examples from time to time!
