  • A Commercial Pilot’s 2-Year Plan to Break into Consulting

    Michelle Bryant
    24 Sep 2014 | 3:00 pm
    Beau approached us a few months ago to ask about breaking into consulting. He had the epiphany that consulting was his calling in life, and went searching for details – finding MC in the process. Beau’s questions are probably similar to your questions – “Is now the right time? I have a crappy undergrad GPA – do I have a chance? Is my resume where it needs to be?” We offered to complete a Power Half Hour for Beau so we could share his process with you – and how we helped him along the way. If you’re in the same boat – wanting to break in,…

    There’s nothing quite like getting some face-to-face time with an MC expert, and our Group Bootcamps get rave reviews. We work with top schools (this week alone we’re at Duke, Yale, Harvard, and Wharton – not too shabby). But what if your school doesn’t offer these programs (yet) – and you want to come spend 1 power day to focus on breaking into consulting – with emphasis on networking, fit interviews, and most of all, case interviews?

  • 4 Key Consulting Fit Interview Questions You Must Prepare For

    Michelle Bryant
    10 Aug 2014 | 3:30 pm
    During an interview, it is common to be asked “Tell me about yourself.” Even though you’re mentally prepared for the question to be asked, suddenly your heart starts racing, your mind goes blank, and you just plain forget how to talk like a normal human. In thousands of hours of interview preparation every year, we find similar themes with EVERY client: you love breaking your brain for the case interview, and assume that for the the fit interviews – being more predictable by comparison – you can wing it. Au contraire, peeps. The fit interview is where magic…

    Take off your blinders. Blinders are used to reduce a horses peripheral vision from 180 degrees to 30 degrees.By wearing blinders horses remain focused on what’s in front of them and eliminates any distractions that come from beside or behind them. Far too many leaders and teams wear blinders in a similar fashion. They are hyper-focused on what is directly in front of them and are blind to events and activities beyond the narrow confines of the immediate and urgent issues of the day. When you remove blinders you’ll experience the following three benefits. 1. Increased insight.
  • Hugh’s Formula for Increased Results

    Video Notes: This week I want to share with you a formula for having increased results that I think will be really advantageous for you. It is CP + RM x T = IR. What does that mean? Well, first of all I think it looks really cool, but actually there’s a real method to my madness here. It says, “A compelling purpose plus a roadmap multiplied by time equals increased results.” Ladies and gentlemen I know that every single one of you is focused on getting increase results, but we have to work backwards, we need to have a formula. And this formula is really pretty simple. If you do not have…

    I was sitting in a Top Pot Doughnut shop in downtown Seattle waiting for a colleague to join me when I noticed the window washers cleaning the twenty-five foot tall floor to ceiling windows. Since I have a neighbor who runs a successful commercial window washing company, I was intrigued by how you go about cleaning twenty-five foot tall windows without ladders. What I noticed more than the cleaning technique was the difference in perspective I had of the surrounding landscape with a clean window versus a dirty one. When the smudge, grime and pigeon droppings were removed from the window it…
  • Pay Attention to What You Pay Attention To

    Video Notes: This week I want to talk to you about paying attention to what you pay attention to. No, this is not a Hugh Blane riddle. It is actually a really good piece of advice. Here’s what I mean by that. What you pay attention to, whether it’s an asset versus a liability, a strength versus a weakness, what’s working versus what’s not working…if your attention goes to things that are broken and to things that are not working, it permeates your attention span. And then, your attention span, that which you give attention to, will influence the decisions you make. Any…
  • 3 Steps to Getting Really Good at Something

    Andy Daupert
    5 Oct 2014 | 1:31 pm
    Video Notes This week I want to talk to you about how do you get really good at something. It’s really quite simple. #1. Fall in love with an idea, hope, dream or aspiration. You cannot like something if you want to be really good at. You have to love it! You have to have a resounding YES to the idea. #2. You have to learn it. You have to continually study your idea. You willingly look for other people’s perspectives, read and study continually because when you love something you want to get better at it. #3. You have to live it. You stretch yourself and your behavior. You say to…

  • Internal Linking In Websites

    We’ve been talking a lot of the Rippleout Blog recently about consumer psychology, and how important other people, and trying to understand them, is to a small business. However, whilst this is always really interesting, it’s also somewhat blue sky. So, for this week, we’re going to bring it a little bit closer to home and discuss internal linking within websites.

  • The Psychology of Free Samples

    Elliot Simmonds
    10 Oct 2014 | 9:05 am
    A couple of weeks ago in this blog we covered a concept called reciprocity – essentially, a common mental trait among humans which means we are prone to reciprocate gifts given to us, whether we expected to receive them or not. Normally, we’d leave this topic for a while, but it has recently been covered in detail in some of the more mainstream press, particularly in America, and so we’re going to dive a little deeper in to the psychology of free samples. {Tweet} The Psychology of Free Samples Some Benefits of Free Samples Whilst this article focuses largely on food, the general ideas…
  • The Anchoring Effect in Marketing

    Elliot Simmonds
    27 Sep 2014 | 1:56 pm
    Use of the anchoring effect in marketing takes advantage of a flaw within the human mind which means we do not consider the value of an option based on its intrinsic value. Rather, we compare different offers against one another; we make decisions based on comparative values. In short, through the anchoring effect, we ‘anchor’ our decision making process to the surrounding situation, rather than thinking rationally to make the best decision overall. This has several applications in marketing which we will discuss here. {Tweet this} The Anchoring Effect in Marketing The Anchoring Effect in…

    Reciprocity is a potentially powerful tool in the marketing toolbox for any small business owner – it is something that affects the vast majority of people each and every day, but which is often overlooked by those without a basic knowledge of it. As such, we’ve created this short guide to reciprocity and small business marketing in order to explain the concept, and suggest some potential uses and pitfalls. {Share via Twitter} Reciprocity and Small Business Marketing What is Reciprocity? Reciprocity is a concept in psychology which suggests that, in the majority of people, there is a…

    15 Sep 2014 | 5:02 am
    In recent weeks I’ve been carrying out some interviews to help select a new member of the marketing team for a company I work for an awful lot. Something I’m always interested to know for more junior roles is the extent to which the candidate is actually receptive to and aware of marketing in their day to day life, and so I often ask if they have a favourite advert or remember a particular campaign as a sort of ice breaker. {Tweet this} Positive Emotion in Advertising – A Case Study: Sony & #PlayStationMemories This, almost inevitably, gets me thinking about some of my own…
