After college I started working in my parent’s sports equipment store – the proverbial Mom-and-Pop shop. At the time the Big Box Sports stores were taking a toll on our small, local business. We just could not compete with their ability to offer a wider selection at lower prices. I wanted to be more than a small town business and more importantly, I wanted to save our family business from a slow demise.
To increase revenue, we took a chance with the then new concept of on-line ordering. The business grew but fulfilling online orders detracted from providing the level of service in-store customers deserved. A new business model was needed. We sought answers, read books and received advice. I was very fortunate to become a client of David Hilton at this time. His advice and our ability to take action launched our business like a rocket. While there were challenges along the way, David was there to guide us. We still had to do the work, but I was not alone, experimenting with solutions.
In short, we focused on the on-line business, simplified the product offering and maximized the customer experience. We learned how to hire the right people for the company culture, and provided our people (employees) clarity of expectations, with the resources and training to excel in their job. We also learned the power of systematization for the business.
Though there has been a lot of luck on this road, I know that commitment and unwavering effort combined with great advice (at the right moments) is a no-fail strategy. I believe the principles in this book can help others do the same.
"Spark” is essentially a Business- Fiction- Drama, which seems like an oxymoron, but the authors have successfully pulled it off. The story is about Jack, a young man who decides to launch his own business and the troubles he encounters along the way to become successful.
Want the inside scoop? The story, written by Alexander Hilton (David's son!), is wrapped around the business principles taught by David Hilton, a successful business coach (that part you knew).
The story is so compelling, you may have to go back and re-read the book to pull out the business lessons. Which you will want to do if you want to save yourself time and trouble by relearning lessons already available to you in this book. You will enjoy and benefit from Jack's journey. I did.
This business narrative puts the character Jack wanting to do his own thing in construction and finally gets the opportunity, illustrated by a series of mistakes and fortunate corrections that result in success for Jack.
Having seen and even made the same mistakes myself, I can definitely relate to many of the problems in this book and valued my advisors, friends and even family that help me.
One of the characters is Vern, who acts as a mentor for Jack and provides some of the most critical solutions that in my opinion that cause businesses to fail aside from a bad idea or cash flow. Communication and ability to hire the right people.
Spark is an incredibly exciting story packed with valuable business advice, and I’d recommend this book to anybody struggling with communication and hiring.
