What is Step #1?


I deal with A LOT of school owners. The questions I get most are, “Where do I start? What do I do first? I’m overwhelmed.”

I get it! There’s SOOOO much information out there. You can’t swing a cat without hitting a consultant who promises to make you rich before the sun sets.

The fact is, there are some mentors out there who can be a huge asset for you.

But here’s where the problem pops up.

You are only going as far as your communication skills will take you.

I don’t care how great the systems you learn are; you’re not going to get the most out of them without the ability to share and communicate those lessons with others.

You can’t educate, motivate, inspire or teach without the ability to communicate at a high level.

You can’t delegate, compartmentalize, or be a business owner instead of an employee without a system to communicate with your staff.

And you can NEVER get the maximum profit from your business if you don’t have all your staff communicating at a high level.

But there is a way to develop a communication system that will maximize your efforts.

The proof:

Dyson Vacuum went from $365 million a year to $968 million in one year with an improved communication system.

Nick’s Pizza has a 20% employee turnover rate while the rest of the pizza industry loses 200% a year. Plus it is one of the most profitable independent pizza companies in the country.  

Jeff Quirk’s karate school doubled it’s gross, increased profit by 12x, grossed a million bucks all in a small midwest town, and his onsite hours dropped by 90%…all in just 48 months.

Here’s the kicker: you can learn these communication tools.

And the guy you want to learn them from is Rudy Miick. Check him out here:

I’ve dedicated myself to finding and sharing the ways and means to balance success and personal goals; learning to “play to your strengths” and follow your heart. And the journey has been truly amazing.


  1. Revoir Barbara au piano, dans ce studio vide, Barbara chantant visage nu, à en mourir…Ici « l’image mentale » appelée est celle — musicale — de cette chanson dans laquelle Barbara, mettant les choses à nu, raconte comment elle est allée à Nantes voir son père qui, des années après avoir fui le domicile familial pour de sombres raisons, sent venir sa fin et réclame la présence de sa fille… laquelle ne retrouve qu’un cadavre…….

  2. Giordani RS disse:A Coréia no Norte, sem o apoio(leia-se suprimentos) da china, não tem condições de manter uma guerra longa(mais de 90 dias) contra o Sul e os EUA.Se a china não apoiar a CN, milhões de refugiados coreanos hão de invadir suas fronteiras.Este embate é um legítimo jogo de xadrez. Não acredito na capacidade aérea do norte.O problema do sul é que eles são uma democracia e como tal, tem gente muito despreparada para Comandar…

  3. 小瓶子babe:You are right … now 我都有整個格仔買餸袋(環保袋)俾死佬拎住,d 餸佢都有份食架!BTW,你哋似乎好少同亞媽去飲茶!數來數去都數漏咗 “Auntie 飲茶孖寶” — scarf 同老花眼鏡!冇咗佢哋,d Aunties 會冷親同劃唔到點心紙架!

  4. Ciao, am un material in lucru despre cum se identifica valorile personale. Am prezentat la Bootcamp-ul de la Sasca Montana de luna trecuta, toata tehnica. Vreau sa o dezvolt un pic si sa o rescriu ca sa fie accesibila fara alte explicatii in plus. Daca ai graba mare, scrie-mi pe email si o sa iti trimit materialul asa cum este acum, dar inca nu sunt multumit de el. Tu hotarasti. Pe curand.

  5. perhaps everyone will be happy that there are sellers like me……I can wait. My husband works for the government and we will probably have to move back in to a house I would have rather sold…but you can hope there are plenty like me that won’t sell for less and prices will stablize sooner in N.VA.

  6. 7 de março de 2010PS: No show do Rock In Rio ele já tinha tocado também “Oh My God”, que foi trilha e um filme e nao entrou no disco, além de “Madagascar”, “Street Of Dreams (que na epoca era chamada de Silk Worms) e mais uma outra cujo nome não lembro.

  7. Åži eu prefer să nu am bani ÅŸi să fiu fericită. Åži nu spun asta în aparenţă. Am avut ÅŸi eu pe cineva care obiÅŸnuia să îmi facă cadouri dar cu toate astea nu eram fericită. AÅŸa că am cautat fericirea în altă parte…acolo unde am găsit-o…fără griji ÅŸi fără bani 🙂

  8. Par contre, t’as l’air de penser qu’on veut une femme avec ZÉRO vécu/problèmes/défauts…C’est pas ca du tout qu’on dit, mais tout comme chacun a son propre seuil de tolérance au « niaisage »…C’est pareil pour le bagage et le reste on l’sait très bien que personne n’est parfait

  9. Pretendo escrever um post sobre isso, mas basicamente é porque eu acho que nem todas as buscas precisam de resultados sociais. Se for algo muito especializado, por exemplo, não é porque o Fulano é seu amigo e gostou daquele resultado que ele é o melhor pra você. Em compensação, para buscas que envolvem opinião – filmes, livros, restaurantes – esse conceito é muito legal!Existem protocolos de descrição de metadados pra tudo, e o grande desafio é fazer eles conversarem entre si, já que é bem difícil assumir que um padrão só será adotado.

  10. Condivido con Ettone riguardo la malcelata espressione di timidezza/pudore nel mostrarsi.tipico dei "timidi dentro" , ne so qualcosa.Riguardo la scelta vacanziera, da 10 e lode, da quando ho scoperto Alto Adige, in pratica una estensione dell'Austria, non poso più farne a meno.Via dalla pazza folla!

  11. i just saw someone tag the Koki on a FB wall, and i was inspired to find its recipie… Although my hobby is to bake cakes… When i saw it, i could feel its taste already, being a son of a food enthusiast(my mom), i think i hv tasted this dish same ingrdients but a diff. Method, more paratha like, its my fav. *pyaaz ki roti* i call…well in breakfast i shall ask her to make KOKI…

  12. I too drive a liberal repellant SUV.  I shy away from bumper stickers, like most conservatives seem to.  I do have “yellow ribbon” magnet for the troops on my tailgate that has never yet been the catalyst for drama, but I certainly would feel no surprise if confronted by a lefty.

  13. The GRANDE "IMPRESSIONE CHEST BOX". A bit of everything including all my favourites and i love how its presented in a chest because chocolate is treasure… to me anyway :). And the themed wrappings are all so pretty. I would absolutely love to receive this as a gift or to give it someone special (who is sharing hehehe).

  14. I found that to be more helpful well let me know how it turns out! I love what you guys are always up too. Such clever work and reporting! Keep up the great works guys I’ve added you guys to my blogroll. This is a great article thanks for sharing this informative information.. I will visit your blog regularly for some latest post.

  15. Hei og god morgen, Sølvi!Himmel og hav hvor produktiv du har vært og så mye fint du har laget! Tror favoritten min må bli den nydelige puta med fugler. Så utrolig morsomt å ha toppen av et norgesglass som nålepute! Kreativt!Utrolig fin den heklede puten også. Er så glad i å bruke hvitt rundt bestemorrutene, blir så rent uttrykk.Ha en flott lørdag!Klem Kaspara

  16. VC…thanks for the insight. You are right, the product is the bottom line. But I do think the Devils have done everything possible to make this an attractive building. And from Seton Hall’s standpoint, I think the building will improve Seton Hall’s product by providing a small but palpable boost in recruiting.

  17. I do have to ask. I came to this via a link which linked, itself, to your 2008 predictions…Given not a single one of those was correct, why on Earth do you believe that you’re correct this time?As a non-American, I find the panic over a centrist politician who would be considered moderately right wing in pretty much any European Country including the UK, to be more than a little… well… odd.

  18. Priorité à un nouveau boîtier? Lequel vises-tu?Pour ma part, renouvellement d’une partie du parc d’objectif, ensuite nouveau boîtier si l’un se montre le digne remplaçant de mon fidèle 50D. (En ce moment, c’est plutôt moi qui lui suit infidèle d’ailleurs… )

  19. Happy weekend everyone!I dunno if this has been posted but if there is any doubt how David is sooo loved here in my corner of the world, see this – Young stars singing & dancing to a medley of SBL & ElevatorPlease excuse the poor kids for murdering the songs — IT’S THE THOUGHT & EFFORT (?) THAT COUNTS, ok? LOLps: I don’t know the program cos I practically don’t watch TV for some time now.ps2: Goes back to read article now

  20. Alguém sabe dizer se o projecto do Sporting se mantém na estrada para o próximo ano. Gostaria que algum dirigente do SCP, ou alguém bem informado dentro do assunto me esclarecesse. Eu sou fã de ciclismo e adoro ver o meu Clube nesta modalidade, mas as notícias por aqui lidas entristecem-me imenso.Caso este projecto não tenha pernas para andar apelo aos órgãos sociais do Sporting para reactivarem a modalidade a sério nosso Clube, fazer lembrar os grandes Joaquim Agostinho, Marco Chagas, Alfredo Trindade, etc…

  21. a61e4The very core of your writing while appearing reasonable initially, did not really sit properly with me personally after some time. Someplace throughout the paragraphs you were able to make me a believer but just for a very short while. I still have got a problem with your leaps in logic and one might do well to help fill in all those gaps. When you actually can accomplish that, I could surely be impressed. b967

  22. I don’t exactly know where to report a Yahoo scam artist…but I have heard of someone using Yahoo, who chats on the messenger, who has “jam” in his id…He then calls the girls he talks to on the messenger, and gives them a story, and pretends to be their friend. Then he orders merchandise, and scams them into putting it on their credit card. Then the girls get the bill for the stuff on their card. If anyone else on Yahoo has been talking to someone like this…beware! There’s a lot of kooks out there!!!

  23. Yes Zenster. And let us not forget that most of the FGM being done is being done by Muslim women. That's another canard that needs to be laid to rest — that Muslim women are somehow poor little "victims" of Islam, and not rather enthusiastic and deranged zealots, just as much as the men are.

  24. Microsoft has identified this loophole in their system and now on just entering the fake date in registration form won’t do you’ll also have to enter your licence key to verify you activation date.Microsoft’s official statement : The Windows Upgrade Offer is exclusively available for individuals who purchase a new Windows 7 PC between June 2, 2012 and January 31, 2013. Eligible users will then be able to upgrade to Windows 8 Pro at a special promotional price. Reply

  25. Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  26. tíos, que tampoco los hay tan viejos, que está el Beyond Good and Evil y si no me equivoco era a del 2003 o del 2004. Pero lo veo bien , veremos lo que pasa después, si son capaces de compaginar buenos títulos antiguos con las nuevas incorporaciones pues se habrán ganado el cielo.

  27. disse:Olha, Amauri. Pode ser que elas estejam sendo sinceras, mas é chato que elas continuem a sair nas capas de revistas cheias de photoshop. Mas… Sei lá… Isso deve ser exigência da mídia para que elas apareçam, e o trabalho delas exige isso. Muito complicado.

  28. Hey Sara, I am curious about the quality of service that UK essay services offer. I have plans on probably studying in London perhaps next year. And I’m worried about my essay writing skills. I really don’t have much confidence on my writing abilities. I’ve heard that UK uses different words or expressions. I really want to be able to get into a prestigious university in London.

  29. I became honored to get a call from a friend when he identified the important guidelines shared in your site. Browsing your blog write-up is a real excellent experience. Thank you for thinking of readers just like me, and I want for you the best of success like a professional in this area.

  30. YES!! I received exactly that text message at 0455hrs local time – from the referenced “.com”… I ALSO received a message NEARLY identical, except that it wrote that I had won an iPad 4 ( for consumer field testing).WHAT PERSONS OR COMPANY IS SENDING THIS?HOW DO THEY OBTAIN OUR TEXT PHONE NUMBERS?

  31. Almost all of what you say happens to be astonishingly accurate and that makes me ponder the reason why I had not looked at this in this light previously. Your article really did switch the light on for me as far as this specific topic goes. Nevertheless at this time there is actually one particular position I am not too comfy with and whilst I make an effort to reconcile that with the core idea of your issue, allow me observe just what all the rest of your visitors have to say.Very well done.

  32. After a mastectomy and they reconstruct your breast can you tell the difference between the reconstructed breast and the original breast. Please I am about to have a mastectomy then reconstruction all stupid insulting answers will be reported. Like if I was standing in front of a guy and never told him I had reconstruction then would he be able to tell.Thanks for all your answers.

  33. Teistering zit in het geheel van een nachthemd, waar de tijd in gebeten heeft, de hoofden (er plaagt ze iets in de portretten), je lijfje (als rug, de enorme vermagering, als front de rouwende borsten), de bedekking van je lijfje, die is zo schitterend en ook weer geteisterd door de tijd

  34. J’adhère à l’idée du « cheap but chic » car c’est vrai que c’est beau de voir de magnfiques vêtements pour nos enfants mais notre porte monnaie fait que l’on doit resté raisonnable..Je n’ai pas de H&M dans ma ville je me contenter du Kiabi & du gilet rose matelassé.Merci !!!

  35. Thanks Brett, really don’t see it but hope your right. Right now Barney & Castro maybe Rizzo (Allen Craig) and Garza & Shark are they only players we have who could replace their starters so we have some work to do. Hope for the best.

  36. Hello Chris,Thanks for following. You’re talking about a solar batch water heater. Thought about those for a long time. Easy and certainly effective. But I’ll have to consider whether they are worth the extra effort or not. The rice husk stoves produce as much heat as natural gas stoves, the fuel is free, and you get biochar to put on your land crops. But definitely worth considering further.

  37. Vėliau buvo atskiras EA renginys pristatyti Battlefield 3.. Tai nieko gero, kai parodė MP gameplay, tai grynai Bad Company 3, niekas rimtai nepakeista. Maži žemėlapiai, mažai technikos ir visko, grynai konsolinis MP, o ne toks kaip būdavo Battlefield 2..Aišku, galbūt išskirtinai PC versijai grąžins tuo BF2 didesnius žemėlapius ir panašiai. Vis tiek kažkaip abejotinai atrodo žaidimo balansas, kai pagrindą sudaro tokie patys Rush tipo BC2 žemėlapiai ir viskas.

  39. Mr timaya timaya, your name is a grt name, don’t look over what Eedris did to you, always thank him cos he did them for you to see life. Sorry for what happnd to you, but your now a big man, even that jonzin woman, she is a fool for doing all that to you. Bro am from PH and am also an artist, I just hate when ppl say shit about you. Cos I no you wella from choba, I no how the things goes. Your really a man. Keep your good work’s going. One love bro.

  40. just curious mbah, rekening-e njenengan sudah ke bank syarian blum mbah, bebas riba lho, kpr ato kredit kalo dengan prinsip syariah juga (insya allah) bebas riba karena meskipun ujung2nya lebih dari harga pokok tapi akad-nya beda antara kredit biasa dan kredit dengan prinsip syariah (pembiayaan)

  41. Whats up this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  42. If Hamas is a terrorist group like you claim it to be, then you must admit that Israel itself was created on terrorism. Let us not forget the Irgun ,Haganah andStern gangs that started terrorism in the land of Palestine. I suggest you review your history . Since when have a people been denied the right to fight against occupation? Or is Israel sacrisant? Your ignorance is repulsive

  43. Yay, crepes! Which fillings are you looking forward to the most? My favourite is the simple citron sucré And savoury gallettes, yum… Hope you enjoy Paris (and bring an umbrella or two, autumn’s going to hit the continent in the next few days) and the Riviera (envy!). Any news/feedback on the Physicist’s thesis? I’m going to give the music you recommended me a try. No promises on becoming a fellow opera lover yet

  44. She is such a sweet girl and my heart breaks for her! It is every mothers worst nightmare. At least she has the comfort of knowing that if this is God’s will she will still have him for eternity. I’m praying for her and I’m grateful she has her family and friends there to support her. Robin and the rest of that family are strong and Jenedy is SO STRONG, I have no doubt that Heavenly Father is mindful of her in her struggles. I will continue to hold her and her little family in my thoughts and prayers.

  45. ola camila adorei o look ficou muito linda. como sempre vc tem muito bom gosto. to aprendendo muito com vc. muito sucesso para vc e que deus de abençõe sempre bjus linda.obs: tambem adoro estampa de bichos. []Camila Coelho Respondeu:January 11th, 2012 em 12:39 pm, Obrigada pelo carinho, flor =) Fico muito feliz que gostou do look!!! Bjinhos e fique com Deus []

  46. Point Taken για το πρώτο, μου ακούγεται τελικά καλύτερο, ωστόσο για το δεύτερο σημείο προτιμώ ακόμη το αναζωογόνηση για το renascence.

  47. Chris – please set up a mudslinging site! Aryan Goddess moderates our blog. I’m inclined to allow certain trashy stuff through, as an example. Her approach is “You can’t come defecate in my yard”. But you are right – the mud-slinging can be wildly entertaining. Weisser Wolf – “golden apples”. Indeed. I’m stealing that meme.

  48. Juno has not definitely been scrapped but there are some issues if one tries to do it in one day.The lower cost option — train to Caen and local transport to the Juno Beach Centre makes for a very long day as the train is not fast (over two hours each way). Minibus tours from Paris are probably equally long, are expensive (probably over $200) and it may not be possible to find one going to Juno.If, in spite of this, there is interest, we’ll find a way

  49. You just expressed it. You are generally anxious in general = just about everything worries you. You ask a question and then ask more questions worrying that the other questions are not put out right or have the right answers or you may have missed something. You think about everything all the time. Medication is available and if you stick with the doctors program you will have a brand new outlook.

  50. I love square canvas prints!!! I also love 16×20!!!!! Ok so really I love them all but if I had to chose I would say the 16×20I don’t have any up on my walls as of now and I have a new baby boy 6 months young I can’t wait to get some big black and whites up of him and all his chubby rolls!!

  51. I want to express my gratitude for your generosity supporting folks that really need assistance with this one situation. Your personal dedication to getting the solution all over turned out to be surprisingly advantageous and have allowed employees like me to attain their aims. Your own interesting advice denotes this much to me and additionally to my peers. Best wishes; from everyone of us.

  52. This is a new list for today. I’m sorry about the last two lists. You may find some proxies not working the way they should. There was also duplicates in the list. I’m still learning about free public proxies. I hope you can make good use out of this list.
