Are you lacking in YOUR follow up?

bizcards

Have you got stacks of these around YOUR office? Massive networking and consistent, relationship marketing follow up are the two main things that I did from day one, 12 years ago, (and still do!) to build a very successful and profitable business. If you are attending networking events at least a couple times a month or more and/or speaking or being an exhibitor at live events then I would venture to guess that you are NOT doing enough follow up. NO ONE DOES! You are most likely missing out on thousands of dollars every single month due to your lack of follow up (and following up in many different ways too, not just one or two). I find (and so do many of my clients who are using my … [Read more...]

Are You Maximizing the 3 Types of Marketing for Success in Your Business?

marketing

So where do you start?  What do you do to market and grow your business? There are so many options right? It’s possible even, that you’re somewhat overwhelmed right now just thinking about it. Well, I like to start with 'free first, then pay' options...how does that sound to you? The reason being is that typically these days people need to experience you somehow or in a couple different ways before they will sign up, buy or pay for anything you have to offer. It’s not always the case but usually. That’s why we give free gifts on our websites, do free talks and teleseminars and why we write articles on our blogs and more. I usually recommend focusing your marketing in 3 … [Read more...]

Grow Your Influence To Make a Difference with your Message

influence

Influence is one of those words that I never thought about too much until just last year in fact. One of my speaker peers and friends mentioned it a couple times during her talk at a conference we both spoke at. When I stopped to think about it, and what having influence truly meant, I was excited to discover that I’d been doing many of the right things to BUILD INFLUENCE all throughout my 11+ year journey as an entrepreneur. Here are a few thoughts about what I see can help us all Grow Our Influence in order to Make a Difference With Our Messages. Definition of INFLUENCE: The capacity to have an effect on the character, development, or behavior of someone or something, or the effect … [Read more...]

20 Ways to Get Out of Your Funk in Business

AprilEvent

One of the biggest things I see with entrepreneurs in February is that they typically get into a funk. They set lofty goals maybe in January that still aren’t really coming to fruition or they’ve already backed out of the resolutions they’ve set and for whatever reason get into a funk about business stuff or personal (which in turn affects their business too).   Some of the things that can put us into that funk include: Realizing that what we’re doing to grow our business isn’t working Having negative people around you and saying unsupportive things Not having the funds to invest in or do the things you KNOW you need to do Just plain NOT KNOWING WHAT TO DO I … [Read more...]

Stinkin' Thinkin' Book Cover

Kids today are exposed to more issues than we could have ever imagined growing up. Look no further than the headlines and you will have your proof.  One reoccurring theme that shows up is the negative effects of low self-esteem in children and the serious consequences of them. Most of our kids are not even aware of their self-esteem, and without the essential tool of awareness, they are destined to relive old belief patterns and repeat negative behaviors over and over again. Now that just STINKS! What if through the use of simple, fun, exciting and entertaining exercises you could help improve kid’s self-esteem almost instantly?  What if you were given the tools and techniques … [Read more...]
