Find Your “Tipping Point”

How will you make your business successful? Without a huge marketing budget or enormous sales staff you can find success. Simplify and focus your efforts. Often, it is the small things you do that will have a tremendous impact on your business. In Malcolm Gladwell’s best selling book, Tipping Point, he elaborates on this point.

He says, “Merely by manipulating the size of a group, we can dramatically improve its receptivity to new ideas. By tinkering with the presentation of information, we can significantly improve its stickiness. Simply by finding and reaching those few special people who hold so much social power, we can shape the course of social epidemics. In the end, Tipping Points are a reaffirmation of the potential for change and the power of intelligent action. Look at the world around you. It may seem like an immovable, implacable place. It is not. With the slightest push – in just the right place – it can be tipped.”

This is a must read book.
