3 Ways Entrepreneurs Cope with Major Change

Entrepreneurship has been called the science of change. So how do entrepreneurs cope with major change? We share three ways.

We discussed what makes entrepreneurs masters at managing change on The BIGG Success Show. Here’s a summary of that discussion.

At times, we expect (and perhaps initiate and even desire) life transitions: Read more

3 Ways to Buck Up Your Bounce-Back-Ability

image of a dog jumping into the air to reflect our article about bounce-back-ability

Bounce-back-ability is your ability to come back at a higher level than where you started. We share three ways to buck it up.

We discuss how to bounce back from tough times on The BIGG Success Show. Here’s a summary of our conversation.

Tough times call for tough people. And boy, are we having some tough times.

How can you get through them?

You need entrepreneurial brain food. It’s like comfort food for the mind, and we are serving some of that up with this topic!

As the two of us discussed how to return to normal, a word popped into our conversation:



What a fun word! And who the will to bounce back more than entrepreneurs? No one. But it’s important to understand: You can improve on this ability…and there’s 3 ways to do it, which entrepreneurs use to their advantage.

Even if you never want to be an entrepreneur in the traditional sense of the term, you can use these concepts to up your own bounce-back-ability.

Before we proceed, we just want to include a caveat: If you are feeling overwhelming stress or depression, if your worries are keeping you up at night, get professional help.



Studies show that unbound optimists tend to outperform your everyday optimists. Never give up. Keep chasing that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

It starts with hope. If you don’t have hope, you have nothing. It’s hard to get out of bed in the morning. You can’t keep pushing on. You can’t keep getting done what you need to get done. Hope is essential.

Hope turns into believing. This is the “B” in “BIGG success”. You don’t just hope you can do it. You believe you can do it. Believe in yourself. Believe in key people around you. Believe you deserve a good outcome. Believe in something bigger than yourself. For us, that’s God.

Now the magic happens. Belief turns into trust. You trust you can do it, whatever it means to you at this time in your life. For example, you trust that you can grow your business.

We define ingenuity as practical creativity that allows us to optimize our resource allocation. Here’s the thing about entrepreneurs:

Entrepreneurs – and remember, our definition is expansive: you MAY have a business to oversee, but you CERTAINLY have a life to oversee – are not generally resource-full. But they are very resourceful. There’s a BIGG difference between the two.

Entrepreneurs are able to do more things with fewer resources. They put ingenuity at work.

Listen to the podcast to hear how one of George’s dad’s construction workers outworked a backhoe, using ingenuity.



We define resiliency as creative perseverance. You often have to get creative to persevere. Bounce-back-ability doesn’t necessarily mean in the same way.

For example, as a result of the pandemic, you may have closed your business for a period of time. You may not open it in the same way precisely. Or bounce-back-ability may mean you to get a different job or change the commitments of your job.

Bouncing back means moving on and moving up, in the long run. But it all comes down to a choice. You have to decide to bounce back. When you do this, you develop the heart of a champion. A champion who won’t stay down. A champion who will bounce back again and again, until you reach BIGG success!

Here’s to your BIGG success!

hand form a heart with the blog post title Selfless Marketing

Selfless Marketing

Ironically, selfless marketing often benefits the giver as much as the receiver. We share an example of this phenomenon from the COVID-19 pandemic.

We discussed a living example of selfless marketing on The BIGG Success Show.  You can watch or listen to the interview by clicking the players above. Here’s a summary of our discussion.

Our mission at BIGG success is to help good people have more money so they can do more good. And today, we bring you a Good News Story.

You’ve seen it in the movie The Miracle on 34th Street*. Macy’s Santa sent the mother of a son who wanted a fire truck to the competition, because Macy’s was sold out.

Sounds great for Hollywood. But that can’t possibly work in the real world. Right?

Our guest says differently. JJ Williams is the Director of Operations at Kiona Vineyards. On the winery’s blog, he recommended his customers buy from one of his local competitors.

Why selfless marketing? Why steer customers to your competition?
