Teaching implies learning. Terris is a business consultant that will teach you how to learn. You might be thinking that you arean adult and you know how to learn. Maybe you do, but what is the learning process? Can you explaineach step in the process? How many steps are there?... Is the learning process linear, multi-dimensional,iterative? What are the learning fundamentals? Can you improve your learning behavior?

Business organizations are made of people. So, Terris consults and coaches people. People set the culturefor an organization. People make things happen. When a consultant drills down into the people within the businessand works with those that make things happen, things do indeed happen.

Love Makes You Build Things Up

At Terris Worldwide the order of priority is,

#1 You

#2 Teaching you business best practices (in real life situations)

#3 Building an ongoing, productive relationship with you

#4 Effective communications with you

#5 Giving you what you need to reach your goals

#6 Innovations and change when necessary.

Identifying and solving problems is what most any consultant does. At Terris Worldwide a dualprinciple problem solving method is used. Basically, this method uses the problem opposite which is theproblem solution to arrive at the best way to solve any given problem. Add the necessary research andthe problem solves itself.

There is no need to make life more complicated than it is. The problem, in most cases, is not the problem. The problem really is whether or not you can accept and implement the solution. That piece takes the most work in solving problems.

No management consultant can help you if you refuse to implement necessary change.

Now, let's go over some key definitions. That's an important part of any discussion.

Terris is a Latin term which means "earth." It is derived from the Latin root,terra which also means earth. The fundamental principles applied by Terris Worldwide to businesssituations are from nature, and are universal.

Worldwide of course refers to global reach in today's global economy. The Internet combined with advances in telecommunications and ease of travel have made the global economy possible.

Consultant fundamentally means to discuss. That means there is two way communicationgoing on all the time. Both teacher and student are constantly learning.

Business means "purposeful activity; commercial or mercantile activity engagedin as a means of livelihood," per WEBSTER'S DICTIONARY. Looking at this definition really doesnot tell us a whole lot. And, when you read the definition of the term business in businesstextbooks you don't really get much more. Business is fundamentally an idea, aconcept.

When you file paperwork with your respective state regulatory body to form a corporation orLLC, for your business description you only need to state that your business is organized for"any legal purpose." That's it. Some examples might help.

A grocery store business sells hundreds of different items. Is that grocery store in hundredsof different businesses? No, it's a grocery store. So, "grocery store" is a concept, an idea.

A department store business may sell hundreds of different products and added services, like Walmart.Is that department store in hundreds of different businesses? No, it's a concept, an idea.

An automobile tire store business may sell tires, batteries, jumper cables, rims, hubcaps, etc. Isthat auto tire store in all those product businesses? No, the concept is tire store.

An automobile supply store business may sell all of the products an auto tire store does, but is itin the auto tire store business? No, the concept is auto supply store.

In 1927 two brothers, Dick and Mac McDonald opened a hamburger stand named "The Airdrome"at the airport in Monrovia, California. Eventually, they franchised openings of 200 stands dotted over theU.S. In 1954 Ray Kroc, a milkshake-mixer salesmen discovered McDonald's when he establishedthem as one of his clients. Ray Kroc took the idea of "fast food" and ran with it. He eventuallybought the McDonald brothers out and formed McDonald's Corporation.

Mr. Kroc understood the concept of branding. Rather than change the name of the franchise he retained the McDonald name. He commented that, "How far could I go with Kroc Burgers?" A "brand" is nothing morethan a concept, an idea the public has in their mind to crystallize your business offering.

In 1956 the McDonald restaurant franchise was virtually bankrupt and going out of business. Thatis when Mr. Harry Sonneborn, a business partner of Mr. Kroc, came up with the idea of a McDonald'ssubsidiary named the Franchise Realty Corporation. This entity found choice real estatelocations for subsequent McDonald's restaurants, and leased them under favorable terms toMcDonald's Corporation to provide a steady revenue stream.

This realty strategy is basically why McDonald's is going strong to this very day, and all over the world. This leasing idea is why Ray Kroc stated that McDonald's is not in the hamburger business, it is in the real estatebusiness. This leasing concept provided the income and growth revenue to power the company forward. You can see the power of a business "idea."
