This ad on YouTube by Sony is the ultimate business irony because YouTube may be responsible for putting Sony Pictures out of business.
In 1989, Sony Corporation purchased Columbia Pictures Entertainment, Inc. Then later they created Columbia TriStar Pictures by merging Columbia Pictures and TriStar Pictures. Then they expanded growth by acquiring the Hollywood studio, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. They have built a huge film production business but are in trouble.
24/7 Wall St. has created a new list of brands that will disappear in 2012, which includes Sony Pictures. An article at the 24/7 website says: Sony has a studio production arm which has nothing to do with its core businesses of consumer electronics and gaming. Sony bought what was Columbia Tri-Star Picture in 1989 for $3.4 billion. This entertainment operation has done poorly recently. Sony’s fiscal year ends in March, and for the period revenue for the group dropped 15% to $7.2 billion and operating income fell by 10% to $466 million. Sony is in trouble. It lost $3.1 billion in its latest fiscal on revenue of $86.5 billion.
This is in part due to YouTube and other similar competitors creating increasing amounts of their own content.
An excerpt from a Bloomberg Business Week article entitled “Must-See YouTube” explains why: Late last year, Google’s (GOOG) video-sharing site announced it would spend $100 million to support video programming. YouTube is funding filmmakers, artists, writers, and proven online hitmakers with grants that range from a few hundred thousand to a few million dollars. It will eventually have about 100 new channels.
By building a library of professionally produced programming that is closer to Charlie’s Angels than to “Charlie Bit My Finger,” Google hopes to attract more viewers, reduce the need to negotiate with Hollywood studios, and woo some of the big-name advertisers who have been reluctant to put their products next to cat videos.
YouTube’s competitors also are focusing on original, Web-exclusive content to lure viewers and advertisers—and to get around the major studios that produce most of the nation’s entertainment. Netflix is streaming its mob drama Lilyhammer and has new shows in the works from The Social Network director David Fincher and Weeds creator Jenji Kohan. It also bought the rights to new episodes of the cult TV hit Arrested Development. Hulu is producing a faux-documentary sitcom, Battleground, set in the world of Wisconsin politics. The creative development arm of Amazon.com (AMZN), Amazon Studios, recently said it would start soliciting ideas for children’s and comedy programming and back the best proposals.
YouTube, the dominant online video site with 181 million monthly visitors in the U.S., may have the most to gain. For years the site has tried to secure studios’ permission to stream Hollywood material on the Web—and has little to show for it other than a slow-moving copyright lawsuit brought by Viacom (VIA). “We could have bought their content and given them deals that were good for them and lost a large amount of money,” says Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt. “That is not how Google works.” James McQuivey, an analyst with Forrester Research (FORR), says the channels venture is “nothing less than the circumvention of the monopoly control” Hollywood has over premium content.
YouTube is betting there’s an entire class of material that might languish on cable but will find an audience on the Web.
This is also why big store book sellers are going down the drain and big publishing companies too.
Take for example the Encyclopedia Britannica. It is regarded as one of the most scholarly of English language encyclopedias. And the publishers have been progressive. The Britannica is the oldest English-language encyclopedia still being produced. It was first published between 1768 and 1771 in Edinburgh, Scotland. In 1933, the Britannica became the first encyclopedia to adopt “continuous revision”, in which the encyclopedia is continually reprinted and every article updated on a schedule.
Yet in 2012, the company stopped publishing its printed editions and now is only online.
To succeed and remain successful businesses have to continually adapt.
A Harvard Business Review article (linked below) reminds us of this fact in an article entitled “Reinvent Your Business Before It’s Too Late” by Paul Nunes and Tim Breene.
Here is an excerpt: Sooner or later, all businesses, even the most successful, run out of room to grow. Faced with this unpleasant reality, they are compelled to reinvent themselves periodically. The ability to pull off this difficult feat—to jump from the maturity stage of one business to the growth stage of the next—is what separates high performers from those whose time at the top is all too brief.
The potential consequences are dire for any organization that fails to reinvent itself in time. As Matthew S. Olson and Derek van Bever demonstrate in their book Stall Points, once a company runs up against a major stall in its growth, it has less than a 10% chance of ever fully recovering. Those odds are certainly daunting, and they do much to explain why two-thirds of stalled companies are later acquired, taken private, or forced into bankruptcy.
There’s no shortage of explanations for this stalling—from failure to stick with the core (or sticking with it for too long) to problems with execution, misreading of consumer tastes, or an unhealthy focus on scale for scale’s sake. What those theories have in common is the notion that stalling results from a failure to fix what is clearly broken in a company.
Having spent the better part of a decade researching the nature of high performance in business, we realized that those explanations missed something crucial. Companies fail to reinvent themselves not necessarily because they are bad at fixing what’s broken, but because they wait much too long before repairing the deteriorating bulwarks of the company. That is, they invest most of their energy managing to the contours of their existing operations—the financial S curve in which sales of a successful new offering build slowly, then ascend rapidly, and finally taper off—and not nearly enough energy creating the foundations of successful new businesses. Because of that, they are left scrambling when their core markets begin to stagnate.
About the Research
In our research, we’ve found that the companies that successfully reinvent themselves have one trait in common. They tend to broaden their focus beyond the financial S curve and manage to three much shorter but vitally important hidden S curves—tracking the basis of competition in their industry, renewing their capabilities, and nurturing a ready supply of talent. In essence, they turn conventional wisdom on its head and learn to focus on fixing what doesn’t yet appear to be broken.
Thrown a Curve
Making a commitment to reinvention before the need is glaringly obvious doesn’t come naturally. Things often look rosiest just before a company heads into decline: Revenues from the current business model are surging, profits are robust, and the company stock commands a hefty premium. But that’s exactly when managers need to take action.
The Harvard article links to a Yale Press article entitled “Stall Points – Most Companies Stop Growing–Yours Doesn’t Have To” that says: Very few large companies manage to avoid stalls in revenue growth. These stalls are not attributable to the natural business cycle. Rather, careful analysis reveals that the vast majority of such stalls are the direct result of strategic choices made by corporate leaders. In short, stoppages in growth are almost always avoidable. This extensively researched book analyzes the growth experiences of more than six hundred Fortune 100 companies over the past fifty years to identify why growth stalls and to discover how to rectify a stall in progress or, even better, avoid one.
This article points out: Top Four Reasons a Firm May Stall:
• Premium position captivity
• Innovation management breakdown
• Premature core abandonment
• Talent shortfall
This article also leads to the Stall Point Initiative that drives a global network of more than 14,000 executives from 80% of the Fortune 500 and more than 4,700 leading corporations and not-for-profit organizations. Our membership programs encompass all major functional areas of the large corporate and middle-market sectors. This site offers a “Red Flag Diagnostic” aimed at helping CEOs spot danger signals in the evolution of their business. I took the test and let me hasten to add not because it is meant for our tiny business.
The questionnaire leading to the diagnostic starts by asking the size of the company and the numbers are large. The smallest companies are sales of $500 million or more… way… way above my pay grade.
However… guess what. Big businesses are ruled by the same laws of nature as we little folk so we can transform… ie. step down… so the questions do apply to all of us.
Here is an example of three of the 50 questions in the diagnostic and what they mean to us.
Big Corp Question #1: Our earnings growth rate has outstripped our revenue growth rate for five or more years.
Stepped Down Question #1 for We Little Folks: We are penny pinching so we have more and more money in the bank… but we are not reinvesting in ourselves.
Big Corp Question #2: Our core business reinvestment rate (R&D + CAPX + advertising divided by revenue) falls below its historic range.
Stepped Down Question #2 For We Little Folks: We are not even trying to improve the existing things we already are doing.
Big Corp Question #3: Our dividend payout ratio exceeds 30 percent.
Stepped Down Question #3 For We Little Folks: We are spending too much and investing too little.
We all need to evolve and adapt. How is the question. Take a look at the Stall Point Initiative’s Big Business Red Flag Diagnostic and step the questions down to fit your own business and life. That transformation could transform your life!
Technology is changing business at a rapidly increasing pace.
This is why our courses on how to earn globally never end and include regular updates that look at what we are doing in business ourselves.
International Business Made EZ Special Three For One
The way to a super lifestyle reinvention is to “Go Try Things”
Learn how to turn your passions into profit… wherever you live… wherever you travel with three of our online courses “International Business Made EZ” and “Tangled Web – How to Have an Internet Business” and “Quantum Thinking”. See how to have all three for the price of one below.
Here I am working at home trying to explain the importance of this phrase “Go try things”… which sums up why you not only can but should gain the benefits of an international business.
I started trying things in Hong Kong about 44 years ago.
A decade I found “New Things” livng n London and this led to… distortions being in the cost of Manx corporations. This led me shortly to an Isle of Man business. Years of real estate tours helped readers start businesses there and they picked up unimaginable profits… because we tried some new things.
However Britain’s gray winters soon drove me to the sun. I found myself in the sun watching sun rays sparkle on the emerald prisms of cool, spring fed pools in the Dominican Republic where I found more “New Things”.
We conducted Dominican real estate tours but also created out course International Business Made EZ.
Since then thousands have attended or taken the correspondence version of this course all over the world.
Then in the process of trying new places and new things, 15 years ago we stumbled onto Ecuador.
We continue to “go try things”.
Our business has evolved over 44 years from Hong Kong to London to Europe to the Isle of Man to the Dominican Republic to Florida to North Carolina to Ecuador. Each time because we were trying things of interest and fascination to us. Not once did business turn out as we expected… but always there was some success… happy customers…. good deeds…. great service… profit… fulfillment and adventure all originating from just trying some things.
Subscribers to our online courses have improved their lives, gained greater independence, increased financial safety and dramatically gained more freedom to lead the type of life they desire…all because these courses help people “go try things”.
So I sat straight up and started writing after working by my pool and reading a USA Today article entitled “THEY WON’T QUIT” by Janice Lloyd which summed up the vast importance of trying and the benefits you can gain when you “go try things”.
The article is as follows (Bolds and underlines are mine): Experts say Baby Boomers are starting to work past conventional retirement age, a trend fueled by an uncertain economy, improved health in older life and an understanding that staying engaged leads to a better sense of well-being.
Hitting 65 and “getting the gold watch” is not on the must-do list anymore for many people, says Jacquelyn James, research director at the Sloan Center on Aging and Work at Boston College.
“Their emphasis isn’t just to keep working but to do things that add life to years and not years to life,” James says. “People who are very work-oriented and love their jobs don’t want to give them up, especially if they’re healthy.”
An April Gallup survey had similar findings: 534 working people were asked whether, when they reached retirement age, “you think you will continue working and work full-time; continue working and work part-time; or stop working altogether?” Those who answered that they would continue to work were then asked, “Would you do it because you want to, or because you will have to?”
•18% said they would work full-time, and a third of those said it was because they wanted to, not because they would have to.
•63% said they would work part-time; almost two-thirds of those said they would do it because they wanted to.
•18% said they would retire and stop working altogether.
The average age of retirement is 64 for men and 62 for women, according to an analysis of Census data by the Center for Retirement Research. Census data also show the number of Americans living to age 90 and beyond has tripled in the past three decades to almost 2 million and is likely to quadruple by 2050.
“People are beginning to realize that if you retire at age 60, you could easily spend 35 years in retirement,” says Richard Johnson, senior fellow and director of the program on retirement policy at the Urban Institute. “And that could get tedious.”
There are other reasons to stick it out. Job satisfaction grows with age, Johnson says: 90% of workers age 60 to 64 agree or strongly agree that they enjoy going to work, compared with 95% of workers 65 to 69 and 97% of workers age 70 and older, according to the Retirement Project of the Urban Institute.
Stress levels also drop on the job. About one of three workers age 70 and older agree or strongly agree their jobs involve a lot of stress, compared with more than half of workers age 60 to 64.
“There isn’t a script for 65 anymore. We recommend the same thing we tell people in their 20s: ‘Go try things.’”
This is why we would like to help you make your life better with a funky micro business and why we are offering a two courses for the price of one special.
The USA Today article goes on to point out: “People are being given rotten advice to slow down, take it easy, stop worrying and retire,” Friedman says. “The Longevity Project discovered that those who worked the hardest lived the longest — the responsible and successful achievers thrived in every way, especially if they were dedicated to things and people beyond themselves.
You can learn how to gain “earning flexibility” so you can earn… mobile or not… full or part time… young or old. We have many boomers take our courses… some older.
Other participants are in their 20s and 30s and want to get started while avoiding the rat race. Others in their 40s and 50s are looking for ways out of the rat race.
Technology and economically speaking, you have a a perfect time now to have your own micro business. Communications and computers do most of the work that previously required labor and staff. Outsourcing and virtual offices, plus internet marketing mean a one man (or woman or couple) show can accomplish incredible things.
This is why we have combined our two courses “International Business Made EZ” and “Tangled Web How to Have an Internet Business” and our Super Thinking Workshop (for the price of one) plus added knowledge about how to be smarter and more intuitive in business.
These courses focus on how to use modern technology to start a and run or improve a global micro businesses… that can create valuable extra income with minimal investments of time and capital.
You learn how to start small and build with stepping stones and a harmonious focus… how to build a successful at home business via the internet using several profit generating phrases at Google. You gain the secrets of how you can use words to create your own global income… whether you travel or stay at home.
The course shares how to use the first four of “Seven Ps” (Person, Problem and Promise, Product) to zero in on key word phrases. Then you learn how to use the Fifth P Promise to develop new customers. The Sixth P is the Prospecting Path and Seventh P is the Presentation to create income.
Then you gain all the facts on how to use the seven Ps to create internet sales. The internet can support a business or can be a business.
This knowledge has really helped previous course delegates. Here is what one previous subscriber shared:
“Gary , I have been working on my website, healthy-holistic-living.com site and I figure it is time for another update. It is really hard to believe it, but my site just keeps growing and growing and I am now averaging 2000 visitors per day!
“What I find to be most amazing is that in just a few short months my site is #1 out of over a million sites and sometimes even millions of sites! As you always say the internet is the ‘Great Equalizer’ anybody given the right tools can compete on the internet.“Below are some of my search results. I only listed GOOGLE and YAHOO but you can find similar results on both MSN and ASK.com.
#1 out of 1,190,000 …………………………“definition healthy spirit “
#1 and #2 out of 1,210,000.………………….“benefits to living a holistic life “
#1 out of 1,260,000 …………………………“gaining a healthy mind “
#1 and #2 out of 1,260,000 …………………“benefits to living a holistic life “
#2 out of 935,000 …………………………..“holistic lifestyle tips “
You will learn how to use the same system to expand (or start) your business!
This is a perfect era to increase your wealth and improve your lifestyle as you reduce stress with as you earn with your own a micro internet business.
Yet we are trying new things still. Last year we began adding teachers to our Super Thinking + Spanish program. So our courses shares how these new teachers have expand their micro business Costa Rica, Uruguay, Mexico, Canada as well as the USA.
The Western economy has changed… probably forever. The old ways are gone and those who held jobs… or still have work in the private sector have lost the most.
The economy will recover… but the way people earn and work… and how the money is distributed and to whom especially… has been profoundly altered. This is especially true in value added countries like Canada… the USA and most of Europe.
We are in an era of global structural change… in economics… in society and in the way we work because technology brings us low cost administration, low cost access to data, low cost communication, and low cost travel, plus the opening of markets beyond logic that rely more on passion and experience than on efficiency and cost.
The recent, global economic transformation means that the way we work, live and earn will next be the same. This will destroy the financial security of many, yet bring great opportunity to a few… who adapt and learn how to earn in the new era.
The greatest asset we can have in the new era is an ability to serve… to produce a product or service that adapts to the changing ways.
You receive three courses for the price of one.
First learn how to have your own web business from our eMailed Web Business Course… The Tangled Webs We Weave.
This problem of being able to earn and enjoy the process in the new era is so acute and the importance of having more people do what they love so vital that we created this course…on how to develop your own international internet business.
Years ago, Merri and I had 23,000 print readers… selling millions in printed reports. This was micro sized in publishing terms… but very, very profitable for us. .
Yet Merri and I saw this rapidly changing economy coming… and had learned that small is beautiful. Now we do not have a single printed product.
In the course Merri and I explain what we do in the business. The writing…the marketing…the product planning and such.
Our webmaster outlines the technical part. How to chose a server…set up a shopping cart…create pay per click systems…send thousands of emails a day.
“The Tangled Webs We Weave” looks at all the technical aspects of developing a web based business including:
* How to set up the website.
* How to use shopping carts.
* How to create pages.
* How to develop reader lists.

Yet this is only the beginning… just one third of what you receive.
The Tangled Web course is co authored by our webmaster David Cross.

Now let’s look at the other two thirds of the Innovation Program you receive when you enroll in the program.
Part Two: International Business Made EZ – Good news on how to have extra income in the process of creating a better lifestyle.
We need good news since we all hear so much bad news… in the headlines…. all the time.
All these negatives can help set us free because this is only bad news for those who rely on jobs in North America.
The rapid global social and economic change creates opportunity for those who have a global view. If you want or need to earn extra income, the best way now may be with your own global micro business. If you want adventure, fun, fulfillment, freedom and the opportunity to go where you have always desired, an international micro business can help you as well.
Technology and globalization have destroyed many jobs… killed many dreams. These same destructive changes create NEW opportunities at the same time. Quite frankly many of the new opportunities are better…offer more profit… more freedom… more fun and offer the types of lifestyle you may have always desired.
This is why our flagship online course has always been International Business Made EZ.
International Business Made EZ, includes seven business secrets:
Secret #1: They must enjoy the multiple effect. A product once created must produce profits again and again, almost on a never-ending basis. Each investment made needs to make huge returns.
Secret #2: They need to be more than their owner’s time. They must produce income even when the owner doesn’t put in day-to-day effort. You may already be wealthy or earning a high income. You may not even need another business or extra income, but some day you might. One surgeon explained it this way. “I am making a fortune because peoples’ lives are in my hands. Once my hands are no longer steady, my income stops. My entire financial well being will then be in someone else’s hands!”
Secret #3: These money making systems should be enjoyable and fun! Sadly most people make money for the sake of making money. Many spend their lives working, just to have a few precious hours having fun. The most important fact I learned about making and keeping wealth was that those who were richest absolutely loved what they were doing! Money was of secondary importance to their effort. And as things are, this means they actually ended up making more money!
Secret #4: These money making systems need to be flexible. No matter what the economy brings, your ability to make money should work regardless of inflation, recession or even depression.
Secret #5: These businesses usually start small, but grow quite large. I learned that good money systems work for large or for small amounts and can be operated on either a full or part time basis. Most businesses start with a learning curve. During that time it is essential they are small. Once the lessons have been learned and the system is operating properly, then it needs to grow for larger and larger returns.
Secret #6: Look for ways to gain strong margins in business. The wealthiest families in the world today come from global businesses. Learn how margins can be so incredible that few would believe them. Learn how to use stories to make huge shifts in the value of products. Take for example our friend Earl who is a dog trainer. On a trip to Ecuador clay whistles in the market place were for sale at .35 cents each. By calling them dog whistles the business lady was able to sell them at $9.95, a whopping 2,700% mark up!
Secret #7: Create and market your product everywhere using niche marketing. There are 11 steps to create the perfect product. You learn them with International Business Made EZ. Understand how to review ideas, test focus, aim at markets. Learn where and how to get your data and get others to provide your marketing material for you almost FREE.

We are Not Finished Yet – You also receive a Super Thinking Course in the Innovation Program.
Two points almost everyone agrees on about the future are… first we need to be smarter to keep up with the faster pace of change… and second the world’s economy has and will continue to globalize.
This is one reason why we have added our Super Thinking Workshop into this program (normally costs $149).
First, we need to be smarter. Super thinking tactics, helps us become smarter.
Super Thinking comes when we improve the brain in three ways… one being through the use of music.
The educational program Merri and I have developed uses a different form of relaxation through brain wave integration frequency modulation so we work in a mode described as “Relaxed Concentration.” This mental process opens enormous opportunity for expansion, understanding, peacefulness as well as greater wealth. We have added this in-depth workshop into the Innovation Program.
Super Thinking uses frequency (in music and a number of other ways) to integrate brain waves so the process of absorbing, processing and recalling information is vastly accelerated. This brings forth the three C’s: Calm, Clarity and Coherence.
Merri and I are explorers. Our business began 44 years ago (May 1968) and we continue to always look for what’s next… trying to stay on or ahead of the leading edge.
This process helped us create the totally unique system we use that incorporates numerous tactics.
The first tactic is to use Baroque music in the learning process. At least three best selling books, “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000″ have revealed insights about how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.
This one tactic alone is so powerful that Small Business Innovation Research… an official site of the US government granted over $100,000 for the specific purpose they said was: to provide a method to remove barriers which hinder or prevent the employment of blind persons. An innovative method call the Lozanov learning system is proposed to help train blind persons to become computer programers and operators of automated equipment.
Merri was among just a few who learned directly from Dr. Georgi Lozanov and is licensed in these techniques.
Merri has enhanced this system with numerous other tactics. One is to make slight alterations in nutrition. Altered nutrition can make anyone a person 25% smarter. These two tactics are given in seven, easy to use learning techniques that help gain any skill, from computers to athletics to conversational languages… in much less time than traditional learning techniques… often two-to-five times faster, in exciting and innovative ways…but most of all it is a system that is stress free and full of fun.
Our Super Learning System helps in innumerable walks of life.
Problems Can Create Opportunity
There is a huge and growing problem of accelerating change that requires accelerated learning. Expanded learning capacity is the most valuable part of this program. So we added our Super Thinking Workshop.
Super Thinking works by focusing on the learner first… the data second. FM Plus “grows the learner” rather than just expands the information. The explosion of data we must all process every day means there is too much information to process already. Let’s view this learning in terms of plumbing to outline what “Growing the Learner” means.
If you have 4.5 inches of information flowing through a 4 inch learning pipe, the solution is not to add another inch of information. The answer is to first create a six inch pipe and then an even larger pipe…a never ending expansion of abilities!
