We don’t know how long we’ll keep this A to Z theme running with the Trinity U Business Blog and SME-Pod series, but whilst we’re on it, let’s keep this good thing going with a two for one, B and S. When you see B and S together, it can usually only mean one thing, and we’re not going to be the ones to rip up the rule book on that.  We’re calling BS on a part of the business world, which to be frank, does our collective heads in. #2080e #trinityu #elearning #businesssupport #entrepreneur #entrepreneurmindset #businessowner #businessgrowth #startupbusiness #success #successmindset #learning #motivation #businessstartup #businesshelp 
 It’s time for a rant.  Now, at Trinity U, we don’t normally do rants, but this is an important one, so buckle up. As far as we can tell, so many small businesses out there, have no idea whatsoever about ZMOT, otherwise known as the ‘zero moment of truth...’ Never heard of it?  Well, you need a wakeup call then, because Google have been banging on about ZMOT for ten years now, and if you’ve not got to grips with it yet, you are limiting your chances of success. Listen to learn about ZMOT and how it can help your business!#2080e #trinityu #elearning #businesssupport #entrepreneur #entrepreneurmindset #businessowner #businessgrowth #startupbusiness #success #successmindset #learning #motivation #businessstartup #businesshelp 
It’s a bit of a mouthful this week’s podcast title, we’ll give you that, but we want to explore the famous quote from Jim Rohn, which states that “you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with...” We’ve looked at this idea before in our series of Trinity U podcasts and blogs, but the opinion of such a well renowned businessman and widely respected personal development guru has to be worthy of a little more consideration from any business/ life coach platform worth its salt. And we’re worth our salt. Listen to find out how this can have a positive effect on your business. #2080e #trinityu #elearning #businesssupport #entrepreneur #entrepreneurmindset #businessowner #businessgrowth #startupbusiness #success #successmindset #learning #motivation #businessstartup #businesshelp 
Sweeping generalisations are out of fashion, but just for old times’ sake, we thought we’d throw one in for good measure. Ready? Here goes... ‘Men don’t read the instruction manuals.’ Sorry fellas, it’s true, and we apologise if you’re one of the exceptions who don't follow the rule, but all too often, men find themselves sitting on the bedroom floor with a pile of left-over screws and a wardrobe that looks more capable of providing entry to Narnia than storing clothes in. Listen to find out why the instruction manual is important to a business owner.#2080e #trinityu #elearning #businesssupport #entrepreneur #entrepreneurmindset #businessowner #businessgrowth #startupbusiness #success #successmindset #learning #motivation #businessstartup #businesshelp 
 At Trinity U, we’re yet to meet someone who has set up in business, but who has no real intention of achieving success.  Of the thousands of new (genuine) entrepreneurs who throw their hats into the ring, every single year, we’d bet that there isn’t one amongst them who doesn’t believe they’ll succeed.  The truth is, that we all set up in business with the highest of hopes and the best of intentions, but for many businesspeople out there, it just doesn’t go to plan. Something is going wrong? This week we give add our voice to the debate. #2080e #trinityu #elearning #businesssupport #entrepreneur #entrepreneurmindset #businessowner #businessgrowth #startupbusiness #success #successmindset #learning #motivation #businessstartup #businesshelp 
What happens after Covid? It’s a question we’ve been asking ourselves at Trinity U, and a question that millions of business owners all over the world will be asking themselves as well, as we navigate our various road maps out of lockdown, and away from the most challenging year or so in recent history. Whether or not we’re fed up of them (and we are by the way...) we’ve all had to get used to Zoom meetings, Teams meetings and operating in a virtual world.  We’ve been faces on a screen for some time now, but what happens next? Here we give you our opinion. #2080e #trinityu #elearning #businesssupport #entrepreneur #entrepreneurmindset #businessowner #businessgrowth #startupbusiness #success #successmindset #learning #motivation #businessstartup #businesshelp 
One quote from a recent conversation we had, however, really stuck out to us as important to highlight. “We see people as people, not as pound signs...” In a world of bills, invoices, rent and outgoings, it’s easy to forget that the key detail in business isn’t actually money at all, it’s people... Listen to find out more #2080e #trinityu #elearning #businesssupport #entrepreneur #entrepreneurmindset #businessowner #businessgrowth #startupbusiness #success #successmindset #learning #motivation #businessstartup #businesshelp 
Mental Health Awareness Week aims to shine a light on something we should all be keeping an eye on, for much more than one week a year. Mental health is something that is finally being given the same kind of coverage and respect as physical health. The prominence of things such as anxiety, depression and even suicide in our twenty first century, have made it all but impossible to continue to ignore the significance of what goes on in between our ears. At Trinity U, we regularly comment on the importance of looking after your mental health, and suggest numerous ways that this can be done, but sometimes, this just isn’t enough... Listen to learn what we mean #2080e #trinityu #elearning #businesssupport #entrepreneur #entrepreneurmindset #businessowner #businessgrowth #startupbusiness #success #successmindset #learning #motivation #businessstartup #businesshelp 
At Trinity U, we’re big believers in the idea that the journey is just as important as the destination. To live a full and happy life, it really is no cliché to say that you simply have to live for the moment and enjoy every day, because none of us are promised tomorrow. Before we get too deep and meaningful though, we’re also big believers in the idea that having a destination, a clear plan and a road map, makes the journey even more spectacular.  And that’s where Trinity U come in to your equation... listen to find out how we can make a difference. #2080e #trinityu #elearning #businesssupport #entrepreneur #entrepreneurmindset #businessowner #businessgrowth #startupbusiness #success #successmindset #learning #motivation #businessstartup #businesshelp 
Whether you have a team of hundreds, or just a few extra people involved in your operations, having staff can be a tricky thing to manage. “You just can’t get the staff...” goes the saying, but that sort of misses the point. You absolutely can get the staff, brilliant staff too, but you just have to know how to look after them well enough so that they want to look after your business in return. We explain more in this podcast. #2080e #trinityu #elearning #businesssupport #entrepreneur #entrepreneurmindset #businessowner #businessgrowth #startupbusiness #success #successmindset #learning #motivation #businessstartup #businesshelp

The top of your game – how often do you feel like you’re truly there? If we’re honest with ourselves, we’re not at the very peak of our powers anywhere near as much as we’d like to be, or even as much as we need to be. But that’s OK... We can tell you though, that working with Trinity U will help you reach top form more quickly, stay there for longer, and get there more frequently. How though? Listen to find out. #2080e #trinityu #elearning #businesssupport #entrepreneur #entrepreneurmindset #businessowner #businessgrowth #startupbusiness #success #successmindset #learning #motivation #businessstartup #businesshelp 
 Relationships are key to success in business.  The way you build, nurture and maintain relationships says a lot about you, not just as a business person, but as a person in general. Trinity U’s unique blend of Business and Life coaching places emphasis on the idea that this balance between the business person and the person in general is vitally important.  If you struggle to build, nurture and maintain relationships in life then this podcast is a must for you.  #2080e #trinityu #elearning #businesssupport #entrepreneur #entrepreneurmindset #businessowner #businessgrowth #startupbusiness #success #successmindset #learning #motivation #businessstartup #businesshelp 
Any half-hearted, late night Google search for a ‘Business Coach Near Me’ or for a ‘Life Coach in My Area’ is likely to turn up thousands of results, all pointing you in the direction of someone who would be able to either help you transform your business, or transform your life. We regularly talk about the benefits of getting yourself a coach (obviously) and we know that there are plenty of good business and life coaches out there, all over the world. But why is it that the two are rarely combined into one offer? Why is it that the majority of coaches choose to focus on either their client’s businesses, or their clients’ lives? Listen to hear how the 2 are combined to be even more effective. #2080e #trinityu #elearning #businesssupport #entrepreneur #entrepreneurmindset #businessowner #businessgrowth #startupbusiness #success #successmindset #learning #motivation #businessstartup #businesshelp
 The use of language is something that can either make or break a business.  With all forms of language, positivity is key when it comes to achieving the outstanding outcomes you deserve.  Language is so important. Listen to find how the words we use can have a impact in all that we do.! #2080e #trinityu #elearning #businesssupport #entrepreneur #entrepreneurmindset #businessowner #businessgrowth #startupbusiness #success #successmindset #learning #motivation #businessstartup #businesshelp 
You might be an excellent salesperson. You might be more skilled when it comes to meeting deadlines and getting stuff done. You might be the sort of person who has brilliant idea after brilliant idea, but struggles with ever bringing these to fruition.It’s OK, not one of us is perfect. Imagine though, for a minute, if you were able to steal (or borrow) your missing attributes, and strengthen your weaknesses, by reaching into the skillsets of every businessperson you know.Listen to hear how TrinityU can help you!!#2080e #trinityu #elearning #businesssupport #entrepreneur #entrepreneurmindset #businessowner #businessgrowth #startupbusiness #success #successmindset #learning #motivation #businessstartup #businesshelp
We hate to say we told you soBut you don’t know what you don’t know !!You’ve been twiddling your thumbs and scratching your headWhen you could have been moving forward instead It’s not a weakness to admit that you need some support  With your marketing, or your research, or on your finance report If you don’t know your business, then it’s time we made an introduction. We work with new businesses, old businesses and businesses under construction. To set targets and goals and then to smash them right through As we have done with business owners just like you We all start somewhere, so why not start here? We’re ready for launch, coming later this year With Trinity U’s experience and bolstered with our partners’ knowledge This is like taking your business, back to Business College So, whatever your industry, whatever it is that you do Let Trinity U make a difference for you #2080e #trinityu #elearning #businesssupport #entrepreneur #entrepreneurmindset #businessowner #businessgrowth #startupbusiness #success #successmindset #learning #motivation #businessstartup #businesshelp
Although not a religious organisation, Samaritans was founded by a vicar called Chad Varah, in 1953 in London. Throughout his career Chad had offered counselling to his parishioners, and wanted to do something more specific to help people contemplating suicide.On 2nd November 1953, Chad Varah, a vicar and writer-cartoonist, answered the first ever call to a brand new helpline for people contemplating suicide.But back then, Samaritans was a far cry from the organisation of 20,000 volunteers it is now.We chat in this episode to Robert Jackson who, until recently, was the Director of the Manchester and Salford branch. Its a fascinating insight into the work they do and how they support people by just listening. #2080e #trinityu #elearning #businesssupport #entrepreneur #entrepreneurmindset #businessowner #businessgrowth #startupbusiness #success #successmindset #learning #motivation #businessstartup #businesshelp
InvoicingIt isn’t as easy as it should be, but that’s probably down to the ‘invoicer’, as much as it down to the ‘invoicee’. Controversial? Maybe, but hear us out. It’s far too easy (in our eyes) to blame other businesses or customers who are repeatedly late with payments.  After all, thousands of businesses go off the edge of a cliff each year due to unpaid and late invoices.   Why don’t they see the bigger picture? Why don’t they think of the little guy?  Listen to the podcast to make sense of it all.#2080e #trinityu #elearning #businesssupport #entrepreneur #entrepreneurmindset #businessowner #businessgrowth #startupbusiness #success #successmindset #learning #motivation #businessstartup #businesshelp
You know what they say about making assumptions? That’s right, when you assume, you make an ass out of you and me......which is why we don’t like to assume too much knowledge on the part of our readers, listeners and followers, when we put out fresh content in the form of our blogs and podcasts.But, what if you’re a complete newbie? As in, no experience or understanding whatsoever, when it comes to setting up and running a business...Is Trinity U still right for you and your needs?Absolutely. And here's why!#2080e #trinityu #elearning #businesssupport #entrepreneur #entrepreneurmindset #businessowner #businessgrowth #startupbusiness #success #successmindset #learning #motivation #businessstartup #businesshelp
“You are the average of the five people you spend the most amount of time with...”Let that sink in for a minute.We’ve all seen those memes that fly around our social media feeds, the ones that say things like, ‘if your circle doesn’t celebrate your successes, get a new circle’, but that’s not really what we’re getting at here.The idea that you are the average of the five people you spend the most amount of time with, is more to do with the world of work, the world of business, and that you really do reflect, replicate and reproduce the attitudes, efforts and, ultimately, the successes, of those with whom you spend the most amount of time.How are things with your ‘power of five’ then?Time for a pat on the back?Or time for a change?Listen to find out more!!! #2080e #trinityu #elearning #businesssupport #entrepreneur #entrepreneurmindset #businessowner #businessgrowth #startupbusiness #success #successmindset #learning #motivation #businessstartup #businesshelp
