This week’s focus point – Being a rock star

I always wanted to be a rock star. I think I still do.

I was reminded about this on Friday when Barb and I went to a concert by Hotel California, a tribute band to the great 70’s rock group, The Eagles. These guys were very good, a lot of fun, and had the house rocking all night. I found myself singing to every song, which apparently I’ve never forgotten. These guys (at least for this night) are rock stars.

We spend a lot of time dreaming about being rock stars, when in actuality we probably already are in what we do. If not, we should start dreaming about that!

What’s it take to be a rock star in your business? What does it actually look and feel like? How will you know?

You need to become a thought leader; top of mind in your industry; and someone who keeps the house rocking in your world. This is more than “customer service,” which may be the most over-used phrase in business. It’s about completely delighting your clients; rising above expectations; and being the first choice when they need something you do. Are you there now?

Don’t dream of being a rock star; get out on stage today and rock the house!
