Podcast – How the 80/20 Rule Will Grow Your Business

The Pareto Principle Explained

Do you have a squeaky wheel in your business? Do you feel like you are giving all your energy and attention to the employees and customers that complain the most? I want to talk to you about the 80-20 rule. You may have heard of this widely-known principle in business, the Pareto principle. It basically states that 80% of our results come from 20% of our actions. 

In other words, 80% of your success may come from just 20% of your customers or 20% of your activities. For Bret and I, our 20% came from APDs. Our Area Promotion Directs. And so we realized we could apply the 80/20 principle to our APDs! We recognized we had to establish a way to evaluate the ADPs to find out who made up the 20% that made our business success happen. Listen in the here more on how we went about that! Because once we addressed this and applied the Pareto Principle, our business doubled by that time the following year.
