08 Mar #01 Lessons of Day Drinking | Adam Loeffler, Owner of Details Nashville
Setting Goals & Guidelines for Business Success
For my very first episode, I had long-time Nashville industry pro and friend, Adam Loeffler of Details Nashville, over to my office for a chat and a bit of bourbon. His multi-media company specializes in Wedding & Corporate Photography & Videography as well as Photo & Video Booths. We talked about Adam’s start in the industry, how he sets and measures goals for his company and the things he considers when making important business decisions. That and why he uses personality tests and sometimes day drinking to maximize the efforts of his team.
- How and when to evaluate success and goals
- What being a boss means
- Company culture
- You want real takeaways on how to set goals for a business
- You are thinking about starting a service based business
“If something’s a lot of work and it doesn’t make money, it’s not worth it”
“You have to think: if your profit margins are one percent… let’s organize this”
“You might be passionate about something and you might be skilled at something, but owning a business is not for everybody”
Connect with Details Nashville at their website and as he mentioned, Adam can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. While we didn’t have time to touch on this, I recommend checking out his food truck Califarmia, too.
