2008: The CEO Insomnia Factor Newsletter
The CEO Insomnia Factor explains problems common to chief executives and methods of addressing them. These are our 2008 issues.
There’s plenty for CEOs to worry about, but panic won’t help you or your employees. You may not be able to "fix" all the weakness in your ecosystem, but you most certainly can create backup plans and contingency plans that will mitigate the damage.
Having the cash to grow is usually the last prerequisite before implementation of the growth plan. But there are many other prerequisites that take longer than getting money. You need a proven, repeatable, scalable process that you've tested, that can produce predictable results.
Investors are easy to understand. They don’t care about CEO's dreams and plans in the broad sense. They just want what they want, and what they want is financial results. These are the questions to ask yourself before you ask for other people’s money.
