The difference between S-quadrant and B-quadrant businesses

December 14th, 2009

Robert Kiyosaki wrote the Cashflow Quadrant and introduced the S and B quadrants of business in our vocabulary. They refer to the advice received from Poor Dad and Rich Dad on small traditional business and big cutting-edge businesses respectively. Having been on both sides, I feel fairly competent to explain the practical difference in operations and mindset between the two.

Straight off the bat, Kiyosaki says any organization with more than 500 people must necessarily be run using a system, making it a B-quadrant business . Otherwise it will crash and burn. The skill of the promoters lies in developing the system. And that’s why companies like KFC, Fedex, Walmart, Microsoft and Genpact (to name a few) run on systems and keep growing stronger. But systems need not always be conceived from scratch. Often they are bought.

Microsoft paid Hotmail several million to buy a mailing system. Google has recently acquired FeedBurner to own a blog syndication system and so on. At an individual level too, Kiyosaki says, we can buy systems using personal franchising. By doing so, all we need do to become B-quadrant entrepreneurs is change our thinking, for the system development aspect has been franchised. And thus the foundation is laid for a large business.

So what is this thinking?

The first thing B-quadrant entrepreneurs do is have concrete dreams. They know why they are in business. What they wish to achieve. What contribution they wish to make to society. What is their purpose larger than themselves. Of course they often build on these things progressively, but they do realize from the start that a ‘vision statement’ will be the cornerstone of their business. Otherwise, they will be operating in the S-quadrant all their lives.

Second, B-quadrant business owners are never excuse focused. They are dream focused. You will never have them offer you an excuse for things to go amiss. Which in turn, makes them great leaders. While S-quadrants ‘manage’ situations, B-quadrants lead the way through them. Leadership is a key B-quadrant attribute, which arises from being focused on the vision.

A third aspect of mindset is thinking ‘leverage’. While the S-quadrant will be gratified in being the expert and doing things oneself for his business, the B-quadrant will always seek the means to transfer business processes onto a system. This is well documented in the words of the world’s first billionaire, J Paul Ghetty, “I would rather a hundred people do one percent of the work that I do a hundred percent of it.” Henry Ford expressed a similar sentiment on the lines, “I don’t need to know how things are done. I need to know the people who know how things are done. I focus on ‘why’ they need to be done.”

Quite bluntly, Robert Kiyosaki says, “Poor people work, Rich people network.” And this is a fourth point. Whatever their business, B-quadrants network and associate with other B-quadrant people on a win-win basis. S-quadrants operate from a win-lose paradigm. Networking is about helping others to get what they want. Working is about getting others to what you want. Quite naturally therefore, the S-quadrant is competitive while the B-quadrant is collaborative. This is also because there are less than 10% of the world’s people in the B-quadrant and more than 90% of the world’s wealth is controlled by them.

And finally, as Kiyosaki says in the first chapter of his first book (Rich Dad Poor Dad), “The rich don’t work for money”. B-quadrants work to create assets and that makes money work for them. The S-quadrants can’t rest till they get paid for their effort; and thus stay poor.

So if you want to migrate from S-quadrant to B-quadrant thinking, look up an online business opportunity here. The operating systems will be privately franchised and you’ll be taught how to acquire the mindset using an internet based training system . More here http://www.DoOnlineBusiness.com


The time for human consciousness

July 29th, 2009

Last week I read James Redfield ‘s “The Celestine Prophecy”. Why this book had escaped me till date I know not. Obviously for a deeper reason than I don’t as yet fathom. But I couldn’t help being blown away by the ‘coincidences’, to begin with.

For starters, I am amazed at how many people have been writing, speaking and propagating higher consciousness in the last two decades. And how much experimentation has been happening in this field concurrently.

As someone in the midst of it, I find the energy mind boggling. A couple of years ago when I came upon Power v/s Force by Dr David Hawkins , that was remarkable in its identification of the various levels of vibration that encompass human consciousness.

For sake of completeness, I reproduce them here:

What this means is, when you can isolate the emotion you are experiencing in any situation, you can also know how badly steeped you are below the human consciousness average (200). Not only will you do the planet a huge favor by yanking your mental state out of the low vibration you stand at, you can also strive to align your perceptions (views) with higher processes for self-growth.

Much like what Louise Hay writes in ‘Heal your Life’ about the mind-body connection. You can ‘will’ your body to be perfect by programming the mind to think of it that way. (Her diagnostic “List” is always bang-on).

And it’s interesting how Dr Hawkins inter-linked human consciousness vibrations tie in with the theory of ‘Butterfly Effect’ (Does the flap of a butterfly’s wings in Brazil set off a tornado in Texas?). Exciting to see where this coming decade leads… obviously many path-breaking insights are yet to surface.

I can go on with these remarkable discoveries but it will be more fun when you do your research. And if you’re like me, you will converge, propel and finance your passion in this subject by operating in the b-quadrant .

However you choose to do it, all I can say is… when they discovered mechanization, you weren’t there… when they discovered quantum physics you missed it… now we are discovering consciousness, so why not be in the NOW? (thanks, Ms Tolle!)

The B-quadrant phenomenon

April 28th, 2009

It was Robert Kiyosaki who opened my eyes to the fact that there is life in the B-quadrant. Through all my education I had learned from Employees (E) or Self-employed (S) people and therefore that defined the boundaries of my limited view of possibilities.

Kiyosaki also explicitly ‘roadmapped’ for me how to learn to move to the B-quadrant and how a network marketing system can be applied to daily life to change one’s mindset forever. In his book, ‘Cashflow Quadrant’ he presents four options that any of us can choose, to drive our life. They are as seen in this diagram… please take a few moments just to read through the quadrant details and absorb them fully…

Now the question to you is, why are most people (90%+) in the left quadrants? And why is most of the world’s wealth (90%+) controlled by the right quadrants? The answer is EDUCATION. Very few of us get educated by (and stay in an environment of) B-quadrant people (Business Owners with 500+ people).

So on the left we are stuck with the knowledge the ‘limits’ our thinking, ‘victimizes’ our outlook and prevents our abundance. The good news is this mindset can change in the company of network marketers, who typically follow a system and the successful of whom are definitely B-quadrant people.

The good news is, anyone can befriend them, if open and willing to make a 180-degree switch… by ‘surrendering’ to a team and a system that one can get for just a few hundred dollars.

Notice, I have used the words ‘limits, victim, abundance, mindset, surrender’ to draw the attention of those spiritually inclined. B-quadrant people are high on the vibratory scale and their quality of connection with the higher consciousness is amazing. I make this observation after studying many such people and urge you to take spiritual elevation as another reason to move from left to right.

In the left quadrants people work alone. In the right, it’s all about teamwork. In fact Kiyosaki is blunt in stating, "poor people work, rich people network." This is another critical switch one needs to make… of NOT being the expert worker… deliberately pushing down the ego… and setting a network of higher energies in motion! Watch this 7-minute film to really appreciate how your keys to success lie on the right side…

Mindset is everything in business as it is in life. You may also call it attitude… and it is all about how we think and respond, whether we are a corporate tycoon, a downsized employee, a home business mom, a student or whatever. Developing the B-quadrant mindset can change everything about your perspective forever. And should you choose to do that, rest assured you have my team to hold your hand on your journey!

So have a good time exploring more about the b-quadrant . And remember to pop your details on the ‘Success ‘ page so we can begin dialog.
