As business owners, we are intimately involved in the day-to-day machinations of our businesses, those things that make the business go. This makes perfect sense.

You may be a fantastic accountant, lawyer, plumber (fill-in-the-blank) who spends their day accounting, plumbing and lawyering, but if you (or someone you delegate) don’t make the time to grow your business, it will wither and die. To be sure, things change EVERY day. You may be working at capacity today, but you can be sure that will change. Without a plan to continue to grow your business, you may be caught off-guard with dire consequences.

I’ve put together a checklist of 10 ideas to help you grow your business. It it not an exhaustive list but it hits some major areas I believe need to be addressed if you plan to continue with your business.

Please download a pdf copy of this list and print it out. Keep a copy of it visible in your office to remind how important business development is to the longevity of your business.

1. Ensure that you do some Business Development EVERY DAY. Make NO excuses, NO exceptions- EVER!

2. Develop the mindset that Business Development is as important as any fee-earning or income-earning work or activity.
3. Create a plan. Determine what you want your future business to look like- and WHY. Do you want to dominate the field? The goal is to KNOW where you want to go, and then make a plan to get there.

4. Business Development is hard work. Explore techniques/methodologies that will help you keep your momentum. Consider working with an accountability partner- a friend or buddy to whom you communicate your progress.

5. Make more phone calls. Talk with clients- be sure to LISTEN. Email and text less.

6. Ensure that your communication with clients adds value and are not simply chasing business.

7. Work diligently to delight clients at every point of contact- never give them a reason to look elsewhere.

8. When cold calling, never be pushy or come across as desperate- believe in the value you bring to the relationship. Remain relaxed, calm, and be the expert.

9. Make sure that new customers/clients can find you. Much of future business is going to be found online. If you’re not there, that new business is going to find it elsewhere.

10. Your ultimate goal should be to build a business that can run without you. Learn to train and delegate. You DON’T really have to do it all. If you can’t take time off without fear that your business will fail, you own a job, not a business.

Glycemic Control in Children with Type 1 Diabetes

posted by admin 11:41 AM
Tuesday, September 23, 2014

Combined with bolus insulin aspart (NovoLog), insulin degludec (Tresiba) improves long-term glycemic control in children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes, according to new efficacy and safety data presented by Novo Nordisk at the 50th Annual Meeting of the European Association of the Study of Diabetes.

“When treating children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes, it is critical that the right balance between glycemic control and side effect management is maintained to ensure the best possible long-term outcomes,” noted Nandu Thalange, MD, a pediatric endocrinologist at Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital in the United Kingdom. “These data show that Tresiba has the potential to offer youngsters with diabetes a new treatment option, which may help them achieve better control of their diabetes.”

In the 26-week BEGIN Young 1 trial, patients aged between 1 and 18 years with type 1 diabetes were randomized to receive once-daily Tresiba or once- or twice-daily insulin detemir (Levemir) in combination with NovoLog. At the conclusion of the study, Tresiba met its primary endpoint of non-inferiority to Levemir on mean change in HbA1C. Additionally, patients who received Tresiba achieved “a lower insulin dose and a significantly greater reduction in fasting plasma glucose” compared to Levemir in the trial’s 26-week extension phase. Those taking Tresiba also had significantly lower rates of hyperglycemia with ketosis, though weight increased with Tresiba while remaining unchanged with Levemir.

Tresiba is a once-daily basal insulin with a duration of action beyond 42 hours. The drug has received regulatory approval in Europe, Argentina, Brazil, Hong Kong, Iceland, and several other countries, though the FDA has not approved it.

Tresiba, Levemir, and NovoLog are all marketed by Novo Nordisk.
