3 Steps to Discover Why You May Be Sabotaging Your Success

May 18, 2019 00:07:30

Description:

Today we are going to talk about What’s Really Behind the Overwhelm? 3 Steps to Discovering Why You May Be Sabotaging Your Success. Business owners are especially prone to overwhelm because it’s not uncommon for them to juggle multiple aspects of their business at any one time. But how much of what you think you need to handle do you actually need to handle? What if overwhelm is actually part of your self-sabotaging behavior being played out? Overwhelm is not a necessary evil of being an entrepreneur - it’s a symptom of an underlying issue. In three easy steps, you can find out if self-sabotaging behavior is creating unnecessary overwhelm in your business and life. Step #1: Consider the Why When you understand why you do anything, you discover why you do everything. From understanding the “why,” it’s possible to see the patterns of self-sabotaging behavior being played out in your everyday life. (Yes, creating overwhelm is one of those self-sabotaging behaviors.) If you frequently or consistently struggle with overwhelm, there may be a self-sabotaging behavior behind it. The trick is to identify the “why” behind the self-sabotage. Common reasons for overwhelm may include: - Behavior based in limiting beliefs - Fear of failure/success - Lack of focus/discipline - Avoidance/procrastination - Lack of interest/inspiration/motivation - Refusal to give up total control/delegate There is a “why” behind everything you do - or don’t do. The question is are you engaging in behavior being driven by limiting beliefs that lead to self-sabotage or empowering beliefs that lead to success? It’s pretty simple: if you’re not producing results you want, you can bet there are self-sabotaging behaviors being played out in your personal or professional life. First, let’s establish that everyone has self-sabotaging behaviors - even peak performers like professional athletes and Olympic competitors (which is why they hire professional coaches!). These specialized coaches help them identify (and shift) the behaviors that keep them from achieving optimal performance. When you know the self-sabotaging behaviors that are keeping you from achieving the best results, you know which behaviors must change in order to create even better results. It’s fairly easy to know what you should be doing…it’s not always so easy to discipline yourself to do those things. However, if you can identify self-sabotaging behaviors and discipline yourself to change them, success will come easier and faster. Step #2. There Is Another Way Overwhelm is not a necessary evil of being an entrepreneur, it’s a symptom of an underlying issue. Most people are stuck in self-sabotaging behaviors because they can’t see that there is another way. It’s the definition of insanity: doing the same thing and expecting different results. The distance between where you are and where you want to be can be a short and straight path when you know the right actions to take - at the right time, and on a consistent basis. It’s when you’re not taking the right steps that the path to success feels like a constant zig-zag path of push-and-pull, struggle and frustration. This is when taking different actions (or non-actions) next time around and observing how your results change is invaluable. Are the results better or worse? Log your progress in a simple tracking sheet to determine what’s working and what isn’t working. Keep doing what works well, while continuing to tweak what doesn’t. Eventually, you’ll learn the right things you need to do at the right time to produce the shortest, straightest path between where you are and where you want to be. Step #3. Focus on the NEXT Step Another common reason for overwhelm is focusing on everything. In other words, you may be focused on the massive undertaking of the big picture - and everything that must be accomplished to reach your goal. Of course you’re going to feel overwhelm when you think about the responsibility, work, risk, and commitment of the big picture - it’s overwhelming for most people! In the midst of overwhelm - just stop. Literally stop what you’re doing. Get up and move. Go outside, take a break, go for a run, take a shower; whatever you can do to distract your current train of thought. Yes, the big picture does matter to a degree, but in this particular moment, it’s not as important as the NEXT step. Worrying or stressing about how you’re going to manage (or control) every piece of the big picture only causes overwhelm and anxiety. You can’t control the future, you can only control this moment, your actions, and your thoughts. For right now, just focus on the NEXT most important thing you must do in order to move closer to accomplishing your goal. Breaking things down into smaller and more manageable steps and then creating a game plan to make progress to the bigger goals will help reduce the feeling of overwhelm. Ask yourself this simple question: What is the most important thing I must do, right now, to lead me where I want to be? When you receive an answer, don’t hesitate - act on it. Consistently execute your game plan and achieve what you deserve in life.

How to Make the Right Choice in 3 Simple Steps

May 2, 2019 00:08:53

Description:

Today we are going to talk about How to Make the Right Choice in 3 Simple Steps. You’ve been making choices every day since you were a child, yet sometimes it can feel like you are the most inexperienced decision-maker in the world. You feel uncertain about which choice to make and how your decision will ultimately affect your life. When faced with a decision that could alter the course of your life, how do you make the right choice? The first step in any choice is to determine where you want to be. Getting clear on your goals will help you make choices that are in line with your vision. Once you get clear on your goals, it can be much easier to see how the results of your choices will lead you either closer to your goals – or further away. Here’s how you can learn to make the right choice in three simple steps. Step 1: Write Your List of Long-Term Goals You may have a lot of long-term goals, but for now, just start with the ten most important to you. Once you have had time to focus on this short list, feel free to expand it to include ALL of your long-term goals. Here’s an example: My Long-Term Goals 1. Have $7,500 saved to take two vacations per year (starting 2014) to exotic places by 6/1/14. 2. Buy new house with 15% down payment $90,000 by 10/1/2015 3. Pay off mortgage ($_______) by 12/31/2030 4. $5.2 million saved for retirement/financial future by 12/31/2021 5. Retire by age 54: 2/23/2022 6. Sell house by 9/30/2015 7. Donate 5% of net income each year to charitable organizations that have personal meaning (Susan G. Komen Foundation and Habitat for Humanity) starting 1/1/2015 8. Complete a full Ironman Triathlon in under 17 hours - 10/31/2016 9. Play golf 2 times per month starting 4/1/2013 10. Improve health and fitness-lose 25 pounds, and be at180 lbs by 7/1/2014 11. Read fun books 1 per quarter starting 1/1/2013 12. Get 1 massage per month starting 1/1/2014 13. Continue to have date night with my significant other 2 times per month starting 1/15/13 My Long-Term Goals 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Now that you have identified your long-term goals, you can identify your short-term goals. Don’t over-analyze or critique your answers, just go with what you really want now, today, tomorrow, this week, within one month, or in the near future. Step 2: Write Your List of Short-Term Goals Here’s an example: My Short-Term Goals (Must be measurable, specific and include specific dates) 1. Add 15 new Ideal Clients by 12/31/13 2. Earn $450,000 net by 12/31/13 3. Reduce monthly expenses by 10% - now! 1/10/13 4. Take that 10% and open an interest bearing account for annual travel fund – within 2 days: 1/12/13 5. Research mortgage refinance every 6 months – can I save $$? 3/31/13 6. Find a local art gallery that will sell my paintings - 6/12/13 7. Establish passive income (sell digital images of my artwork at the local gallery, do consulting, etc.) to increase my retirement fund contribution to $25,000 per year - 4/12/13 8. Do cardio exercise 3 times per week for 1 hour each time beginning today 9. Lift weights 2 times per week for 45 minutes each time beginning today 10. Play golf 1 time per month starting 5/1/2013 11. Improve health and fitness-lose 12 pounds, and be at193 lbs by 8/1/2013 12. Get 1 massage per quarter starting 6/1/2013 13. Have date night with significant other 2 times per month starting 1/15/13 My Short-Term Goals 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. How did you do? Did your goals come to you easily or did it take more time than you thought? If your goals rolled off the end of your pen like flowing ink, that’s good – you’re pretty clear about what you want in life. If it was a little difficult coming up with goals, spend some time exploring what you really want – what you want, not what someone else wants for you. If friends or family criticizing you for any of your goal choices, reply politely with “I appreciate your feedback. This is something I desire deeply and want to do for me and my happiness.” If they understand, they’ll be able to relate to your desire to be happy – because we all want that. And if they don’t – well, they don’t. Let it go and don’t spend any more energy trying to get them to understand. Step 3: Make Sure Your Short-Term Goals Support Your Long-Term Goals Review your short-term goals and determine if they support or sabotage your long-term goals. As an example, let’s use Goal #5 from the Long-Term Goal List: $2.2 million saved in retirement fund. Let’s say the current balance in your retirement fund is $50,000 and you can only contribute $10,000 per year. At that rate, it would take you more years than you have to reach $5.2 million! Wait, don’t panic yet – the goal of $5.2 million by your target date is completely achievable, you just need to make sure your Short-Term Goals support it and you have done your math correctly. Take a look at Goal #7 from the Short-Term Goal List. As you can see, it addresses the issue of the lack of retirement fund contribution. Contributing $25,000 per year will result in $375,000 in fifteen years – that’s a great improvement! While there is still an opportunity to create more cash, this is a great short-term goal! What would be a poor Short-Term Goal that is not in alignment with Long-Term Goal #4? How about a $20,000 gambling trip to Las Vegas, spending $50,000 on a new car, buying a $40,000 Rolex….you get the point. Do you see how you can easily make the right choice when you know where you want to be? The key is to get crystal-clear on your Long-Term Goals and then create Short-Term Goals that support your long-term vision. Obviously, these were just examples and your goals may differ greatly. There is no right or wrong to the types of goals you have – just go with what you really want – and make choices that support the achievement of those goals. Schedule time on your calendar to add, modify, delete, or update your long-term and short-term goals. You may want to do this monthly to measure your progress toward your goals and course correct if you need to, so you have the highest probability of achieving the goals you have set. Consider how the choices you make each day, week and month impact the achievement of your goals. If you are getting value from any of Podcasts, please take a minute to leave me a short rating and review. I would really appreciate it, and love to hear from you and requests for topics you would find of value. Aim for what you want each and every day!

Complete a full Ironman Triathlon in under 17 hours - 10/31/2016 9. Play golf 2 times per month starting 4/1/2013 10. Improve health and fitness-lose 25 pounds, and be at180 lbs by 7/1/2014 11. Read fun books 1 per quarter starting 1/1/2013 12. Get 1 massage per month starting 1/1/2014 13. Continue to have date night with my significant other 2 times per month starting 1/15/13 My Long-Term Goals 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Now that you have identified your long-term goals, you can identify your short-term goals. Don’t over-analyze or critique your answers, just go with what you really want now, today, tomorrow, this week, within one month, or in the near future. Step 2: Write Your List of Short-Term Goals Here’s an example: My Short-Term Goals (Must be measurable, specific and include specific dates) 1. Add 15 new Ideal Clients by 12/31/13 2. Earn $450,000 net by 12/31/13 3. Reduce monthly expenses by 10% - now! 1/10/13 4. Take that 10% and open an interest bearing account for annual travel fund – within 2 days: 1/12/13 5. Research mortgage refinance every 6 months – can I save $$? 3/31/13 6. Find a local art gallery that will sell my paintings - 6/12/13 7. Establish passive income (sell digital images of my artwork at the local gallery, do consulting, etc.) to increase my retirement fund contribution to $25,000 per year - 4/12/13 8. Do cardio exercise 3 times per week for 1 hour each time beginning today 9. Lift weights 2 times per week for 45 minutes each time beginning today 10. Play golf 1 time per month starting 5/1/2013 11. Improve health and fitness-lose 12 pounds, and be at193 lbs by 8/1/2013 12. Get 1 massage per quarter starting 6/1/2013 13. Have date night with significant other 2 times per month starting 1/15/13 My Short-Term Goals 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. How did you do? Did your goals come to you easily or did it take more time than you thought? If your goals rolled off the end of your pen like flowing ink, that’s good – you’re pretty clear about what you want in life. If it was a little difficult coming up with goals, spend some time exploring what you really want – what you want, not what someone else wants for you. If friends or family criticizing you for any of your goal choices, reply politely with “I appreciate your feedback. This is something I desire deeply and want to do for me and my happiness.” If they understand, they’ll be able to relate to your desire to be happy – because we all want that. And if they don’t – well, they don’t. Let it go and don’t spend any more energy trying to get them to understand. Step 3: Make Sure Your Short-Term Goals Support Your Long-Term Goals Review your short-term goals and determine if they support or sabotage your long-term goals. As an example, let’s use Goal #5 from the Long-Term Goal List: $2.2 million saved in retirement fund. Let’s say the current balance in your retirement fund is $50,000 and you can only contribute $10,000 per year. At that rate, it would take you more years than you have to reach $5.2 million! Wait, don’t panic yet – the goal of $5.2 million by your target date is completely achievable, you just need to make sure your Short-Term Goals support it and you have done your math correctly. Take a look at Goal #7 from the Short-Term Goal List. As you can see, it addresses the issue of the lack of retirement fund contribution. Contributing $25,000 per year will result in $375,000 in fifteen years – that’s a great improvement! While there is still an opportunity to create more cash, this is a great short-term goal! What would be a poor Short-Term Goal that is not in alignment with Long-Term Goal #4? How about a $20,000 gambling trip to Las Vegas, spending $50,000 on a new car, buying a $40,000 Rolex….you get the point. Do you see how you can easily make the right choice when you know where you want to be? The key is to get crystal-clear on your Long-Term Goals and then create Short-Term Goals that support your long-term vision. Obviously, these were just examples and your goals may differ greatly. There is no right or wrong to the types of goals you have – just go with what you really want – and make choices that support the achievement of those goals. Schedule time on your calendar to add, modify, delete, or update your long-term and short-term goals. You may want to do this monthly to measure your progress toward your goals and course correct if you need to, so you have the highest probability of achieving the goals you have set. Consider how the choices you make each day, week and month impact the achievement of your goals.

Referral/Prospect Tracking Spreadsheet - Free SAMPLE

Apr 25, 2019 00:02:52

Description:

Today we are going to talk about the Referral/Prospect Tracking Spreadsheet – SAMPLE – Free Download. In my work with business professionals over the many years I have been coaching, I find that they often say to me that they have prospects that they haven’t followed up with (for whatever reason), or they lost track of some of the referrals people gave them. First of all, it’s hard to believe that someone wouldn’t have a process for tracking their referrals/prospects because that is potential revenue – but apparently this happens and probably more than it should. So, I came up with a simple tracking spreadsheet to help my clients better know who they have in their pool of prospects, in order for them to know where their prospective clients are at in their pipeline, and they don’t lose anyone (or drown them) on the way. Did you know that according to the National Sales Executive Associates, they say that: • 48% of Sales People Never follow up with a Prospect • 25% of Sales People Make a Second Contact and Stop • 12% of Sales People Only Make Three Contacts and Stop • Only 10% of Sales People Make More Than Three Contacts • 2% of Sales are made on the First Contact • 3% of Sales are made on the Second Contact • 5% of Sales are made on the Third Contact • 10% of Sales are made on the Fourth Contact • 80% of Sales are made on the fifth to the Twelfth Contact What does that say to me? Being professionally persistent, brings in REVENUE. To download my complimentary referral tracking spreadsheet to help you increase your revenue, so you can accelerate your results, go to https://www.accountabilitycoach.com/referral-tracking-workbook/. This excel spreadsheet can easily be modified to be of the most value to you. My hope for our time together is that you got value and an idea or two that will help you be even more successful – personally and professionally.

8 Ideas to Help You Work Smarter and Not Harder

Apr 10, 2019 00:10:21

Description:

Today we are going to talk about 8 Ideas to Help You Work Smarter and Not Harder. Do you think working harder will get you farther? Not necessarily. In this fast-paced society, many professionals are already running at full tilt, so going faster may lead to burn-out, or worse, complete physical and emotional shutdown. So how do you get more done without working harder? This is key to work life balance success. Let’s take a look at these 8 ideas for working smarter, not harder. 1. Leverage Your Strengths, Delegate the Rest For optimal results, focus on the tasks that leverage your strengths. The goal with any successful business or project is to assign the team member that can deliver the best results with the least effort and greatest effectiveness. If you want to make an easier go at it, know your strengths and focus on performing only the tasks that leverage those strengths. TIP: To download a Free Delegation List Sample to help you identify more activities to delegate, go to https://www.accountabilitycoach.com/delegation-list-sample/. 2. Filter Your Info Intake On any given day, you are bombarded with mass amounts of information that can significantly drag down your productivity and cause confusion, overwhelm, and procrastination. Data is essential for making informed decisions, but beware of information overload. Only take in the information that is vital to achieving your goals and the goals of your firm – everything else is superfluous. TIP: Delegate the biggest information sources (email, research, data collection, data entry, etc.) to a team member or a consulting firm. Limit your information exposure to only the pertinent sources, while the team takes on the responsibility of flagging important information for your select review and firm growth. 3. Streamline Your Daily Duties Do not try to do it all yourself. The ability to focus your energy on the most important tasks of the day has a direct effect on the quality of the results. Therefore, it’s vital that you streamline your daily duties to only the most important tasks that require your focused attention, and those things that only you can do and can’t be done by someone else. TIP: Create a daily schedule of the most important and highest payoff tasks of the day – and stick to it (not always easy but critical to your success). Reduce and eliminate the non-essential duties (the tasks that are either not in alignment with your core values and/or are not income-generating) from your daily schedule. Take advantage of the high-content Free Webinars to help you be even more effective at time management and more by going to: https://www.accountabilitycoach.com/free-articles/free-webinars/. 4. Recognize Stress Signals The mind and body require rest and nutrition for peak performance. While many of us convince ourselves that working harder is the only way to get ahead, it may not produce the desired results. Take breaks, enjoy personal time, and tend to your well-being is important to overall life success. Sometimes a little rest can significantly increase productivity. TIP: Listen to your body. Pay attention to your energy level. Pushing harder to make things happen may only make the process more frustrating and even exhausting. If working harder doesn’t feel right, give yourself permission to take a break. Be it 15 minutes or 1 hour, recognizing your stress signals can help you know when your body and mind need rest. You will perform better and more effectively when you have all your positive energy flowing. 5. Create Just Enough Pressure How many times have you procrastinated on getting something done only to cram the day or night before it was due? Creating just enough pressure may be the “tipping point” that you believe creates the focus you need to reach peak-productivity. TIP: Pay attention to what drives you to complete a task. Does it require a non-pressured, open-space environment with lots of time? Or some-what of a high-pressured environment to get you into action? Are you typically someone who likes to “go where the flow takes you” or do you prefer to “plan every step” far in advance? What approach produces the best results with the least amount of stress for you? Could you plan ahead even better to get things done without being last minute? 6. Maximize High Energy Cycles Following your body’s natural energy cycles can help you produce better results with less effort. For instance, some people prefer to get in a healthy workout before they start their day, while others may prefer to exercise in the afternoon. Perhaps you are more sharp, on your toes, and energetic first thing in the morning. Maybe you typically get a burst of energy in the afternoon? Or perhaps you do your best work burning the midnight oil? Follow your natural energy cycles to produce the best results with the least amount of effort is ideal. TIP: Do the tasks that require the most energy and focus during your peak energy cycle. Schedule it – and follow what you have put on your calendar in order to be in the highest probability position to achieve your goals. 7. Organize and Systematize The goal with any business or profession is to produce the best results with the greatest amount of efficiency and effectiveness. Working smarter, not harder is all about systems. Systems create reliable pathways to handle business transactions and daily duties in an organized and efficient manner. Many firms don’t enforce the creation of systems and processes for all jobs performed. Many team members push back by saying they don’t have enough time to create them and thinking this is their job security. TIP: Create systems for everything so that you and your team can process everything from business prospects to client projects. Systems are necessary to: reduce work time, improve client results, grow your business or clientele, increase profits, reduce expenses, improve overall productivity, and support work/life balance. Successful firms have very specific and detailed systems and processes for all tasks performed by all team members. Have someone test each process to ensure they actually work, is a very good idea. 8. Start with the End in Mind Clarity of a desired goal is a catalyst for the straight path to success. You must be clear about the desired end result before you begin any task. This creates the straightest and shortest path to where you want to be. If you are going to invest your valuable time on anything you want to create the highest probability for your success. TIP: It’s really a no-brainer. Have a very clear picture – I suggest you outline details on paper (or on your computer) – of the end result. Now break that goal down into sizable chunks. Keep working backwards (end result ---> steps to take now) until you have a general idea of the direction you’re going before you get moving. Before taking action, ask yourself this simple question: “What’s the next logical step?” or “What can I do, right now, to move closer to the desired end result?” Remember, creating better results isn’t always about working harder. Points of struggle or frustration are opportunities to explore easier ways to produce what you desire. Focus and continual action in the right direction will help you work smarter, not harder.

Before taking action, ask yourself this simple question: “What’s the next logical step?” or “What can I do, right now, to move closer to the desired end result?” Remember, creating better results isn’t always about working harder. Points of struggle or frustration are opportunities to explore easier ways to produce what you desire. Focus and continual action in the right direction will help you work smarter, not harder.

5 Tips for Exploring Your Life Purpose

Apr 3, 2019 00:06:48

Description:

Today we are going to talk about 5 Tips for Exploring Your Life Purpose. If you’ve ever wondered if there was more to life than what you’re currently experiencing, you’ll find this discussion helpful. First, let’s clarify that identifying your life purpose isn’t the end all - you still have find a way to integrate it into a life, that for most of us, has been built on necessity or security. Yes, we all have bills to pay; but selling your soul (so to speak) in the name of security isn’t necessarily the way it has to be. I’m all for fueling your passions, but I’m also a firm believer in smart and strategic business decisions. My advice is to take this process slowly. If you love what you do, find a way to work your life purpose into your career or business. If you don’t love what you do, then explore other avenues that support a solid business foundation and purpose. These 5 tips will help you explore your life purpose and find more meaning in your life as well as your profession. 1. What Fuels You? What in your life gives you energy? Most of us know what it feels like to be drained (by personal dramas, professional conflicts, too many obligations, financial stress, etc.), but do you know what fuels you? Perhaps you already know you just don’t have time for it. Pay attention to the things that give you life as they are clues to what you really love to do (and you may be able to monetize them). 2. Play the What-If Game The “What-if” Game is where you ask a series of questions starting with “What if?” What-if I didn’t have to work - how would I choose to spend my time? What-if I could make money any way I wanted - what would that look like? What-if I didn’t have to ________________ - what would I want to do? What-if I could live anywhere in the world - where would I live? What-if I followed my dreams…what would that look like? What-if I went back to school - what would I like to study? What-if I created a new program and/or service, what would it look like? What-if I had a board of Ideal Clients for my firm, what impact would they have on my business and life? You get the idea…. What is really important to you in life? What are your core values? To explore what your core values are, download my complimentary exercise by going to http://www.accountabilitycoach.com/values-clarification/. 3. Prophesying a Legend At the end of your life, if you could leave a legend - a contribution to the human race - what would it be? In this exercise, imagine what you would like people to say about you, say in a eulogy? What would be the biggest gift you could pass on? What do you want to leave this world? Your response is very likely part of your life purpose. 4. Observe Your Challenges Life is filled with many challenges, but each of us has a unique set of challenges which are often tied to our life purpose. Going back through your life, identify three challenges that seem to recur in your life. Perhaps you don’t face them any longer because you finally discovered the hidden lessons, but everyone has challenges they are either dealing with or have resolved. Whether those challenges were related to intimate relationships, self-worth, financial, physical, emotional, etc. you will find great lessons directly tied to your life purpose. Take what you’ve learned by facing and overcoming your challenges to teach others how they can do the same. 5. Take Note of What Comes Easily Not everyone is cut out to be an accountant for the same reason that not everyone is cut out to be a doctor, a teacher, an actor, a dentist, or a professional athlete: each of us is born with a unique set of gifts that can be utilized for personal fulfillment as well as contribution. When exploring your life purpose, pay special attention to the skills that come easily to you. Whether it’s calculating numbers, counseling a troubled soul or mending a broken bone - those gifts are special clues to your life purpose. The kicker here is that what comes easily to you is not necessarily the thing you believe people will pay you top-dollar for. It’s often the thing that you think nothing of getting paid for and would do for free. The difficult part of exploring your life purpose is not the actual learning what it is (that part is fairly easy), but it’s the change that is required to integrate into a life that has been likely built on necessity and security. Depending on where you are in life, integrating your life purpose into a career or entrepreneur venture may be a bit of a challenge; but don’t let the level of challenge fool you. Change is only as difficult as we make it out to be. At the end of the day, it’s your life, your choice. It’s up to you to decide how you’d like to live your life and the nature of the legacy you’d like to leave.

3 Tips for Mastering Life Outside Your Comfort Zone

Mar 21, 2019 00:07:10

Description:

We all have fears that stop us from stepping into our potential. It’s what we’ve come to call the comfort zone - the place where fear is minimized to allow for daily life functioning. But we don’t always realize just how much we give up for the sake of comfort. In an effort to minimize our greatest fears we can be sacrificing our heart’s deepest desires. In the name of comfort we sacrifice potential. It reminds me of a quote by Tony Robbins that says (paraphrasing), the dance of life happens between our greatest fears and our greatest potential, which translates into life happens outside your comfort zone. Sounds good in theory, but how do we move through our terrifying fears to break free of limitations and embrace our true potential? Here are a few of my thoughts around 3 tips to master life outside your comfort zone. Tip #1: Every Person Experiences the Same Human Struggle With every person born there is a basic human struggle between ego and potential. The ego operates much like a computer operating system - it has a set of rules and programs that is the basis of its function. That’s great if it’s operating from an effective set of rules and programs - but it doesn’t always do so. It’s no secret we are a product of our environment: the beliefs we are exposed to as children often set the tone of a lifetime of experiences. In other words, the operating system most of us are functioning from was created long before we had conscious choice to reject the limiting beliefs that came from other people. (That’s the kicker - Most people don’t even realize their limiting beliefs aren’t theirs!) The struggle comes in when we’re operating on limiting beliefs that tell us one thing, when we crave another. We crave individual expression and expansion, yet our operating system tells us it’s dangerous - or we’ll fail - or we’ll face rejection or criticism. We crave something better, but the fears that make up the boundaries of our comfort zone stop us from going for it. I believe this is the struggle that every single human faces to some degree or another. We all have fears. Yet, only the ones who have achieved great things have decided that their potential (life outside the comfort zone) was more important than listening to the fears (life inside the comfort zone). Tip #2: To Change the Results You Must Change the Actions If you’re not operating from possibilities, you’re operating from limitations - there is no in between. If the results you’re currently seeing are not pleasing or satisfying then you must change the actions to bring about different results. This often means you must begin making choices from outside your comfort zone. Think of it this way - everything you have already experienced (and may not like) is the result of making decisions from inside your comfort zone. You’ve been there, done that and the results may be disappointing. To create different results, you must do something different. Remember, the comfort zone is based on limited beliefs. To create a different experience, you must take action from different beliefs…the beliefs that exist outside your comfort zone. Tip #3: It’s About Learning to Be Comfortable with Being Uncomfortable Let’s go back to expanding on the struggle that every human being experiences: it’s the struggle between ego and potential. The ego only wants to have experiences that it knows how to deal with because its main concern is to keep you safe, healthy and whole. Your true potential, which is limitless, is the contrast of the ego. Anyone who has ever accomplished anything great has done so with great risk. Not necessarily physical or emotional danger, but at great risk as far as the ego is concerned. See, the ego doesn’t know how to deal with new situations based on new beliefs - it only knows how to handle situations it’s experienced. The process of doing something you haven’t done before is the great risk because you are stepping out of your comfort zone and stepping into your true potential. If it feels a lot like stepping out into mid-air - it’s because it is. You are literally stepping into new territory. To create different results you must step out of your comfort zone so you’re taking action from a different set of beliefs. Stagnation is comfortable….growth is uncomfortable. All that you are and have experienced is the result of beliefs that have built your comfort zone. Mastering your life and fulfilling your true potential comes down to how willing you are to get uncomfortable.

4 Sabotaging Habits that Prevent You from Boosting Revenue

Mar 14, 2019 00:08:21

Description:

As a business owner, it’s important to recognize how valuable your time is - and how you choose to spend it. Yes, the bookkeeping is important, and so is voice-mail and email, but those tasks are not directly responsible for generating revenue, and are better left to be managed by someone else. Are you guilty of focusing on the less important (low-payoff) tasks when you should be actively engaged with the most important (high-payoff) tasks? If you have ever been guilty of this, continue listening to discover four common self-sabotaging habits that keep business owners from the revenue and success they want and deserve. 1. Wasting Time on Low-Payoff Tasks As the business owner, you are a valuable piece of the revenue-generating and business development puzzle. If you are sitting at a desk spending the majority of your time on low-payoff tasks, you don’t have the time to focus upon the most important part of your business: generating revenue. Would you hire a $100-an-hour team member to do a $20-an-hour task? Not likely. This is the same reasoning behind why you shouldn’t be the company bookkeeper or receptionist. (This is not to say that these tasks are not important, but they are not directly related to driving immediate revenue; hence, they are low-payoff tasks). Your sole focus should be upon the high-payoff tasks, aka. the revenue-generating tasks. All low-payoff tasks should be completely removed from your schedule and delegated to a virtual assistant or team member so you can focus your energy on the high-payoff tasks. TIP: Doing low payoff activities are what I call revenue generating avoidance activities. You may not like doing some revenue generation and business development activities, but you may be the best and maybe the only person to do it and get it done. 2. Ignoring High-Payoff Tasks Do you know what you need to be doing to boost revenue - but you’re not doing it or doing it on a consistent basis? Perhaps the fear of doing tasks outside your comfort zone is stopping you from doing the very thing that will make all the difference in your business revenue and ultimate success? Let’s be clear: if you own your own business, you must become very astute at recognizing, and completing, the high-payoff tasks or you will soon be out of business. Let’s say you’re the creative genius type; the sales part of your business isn’t your thing. You could hire a sales team to help drive in some sales, but at some point you’re going to have to tackle the very thing that scares you. It takes courage to step out of your comfort zone and conquer the things that scare you, but you can do it. To help conquer the fear, focus on the process of learning how to master your craft. Just as you mastered the creative genius, you can master the business development and revenue generation, too. TIP: Mastering your high-payoff tasks is more important than you think because once you master the high-payoff tasks; you are in a much higher probability position to achieve your goals in the time frame you have set. 3. Lacking Intimate Knowledge of Your Business In this case, ignorance is not bliss. In order to create a successful, profitable business, you must have intimate knowledge of your business (including where the majority of your revenue originates or could originate). If you don’t - you’re going to continue to struggle with generating the level of revenue you want and deserve. Get to know your business as intimately as you would a partner, learning its quirks, perks, strengths and weaknesses. Accentuate the strengths, while committing to work on the weaknesses. Commit to continual learning so you are on top of potential opportunities. Technology advancements move fast and you need to keep up to stay in the game. TIP: Think of your business as a valuable partner: the more you know about it, the better you can maintain a healthy relationship. Explore what makes it tick, where it could use some extra help or counseling, and commit to being the best partner you can. 4. Failure to Follow-Up Although it’s mentioned lastly here, failure to follow-up is one of the top self-sabotaging habits in business. Sometimes the only thing separating you from a new or repeat client is the follow-up. A simple email or phone call could boost business revenue with little effort. Essentially, it comes down to letting a prospective client know how you can help them - and asking for the business. Personalized follow-up can be time consuming when not managed properly, so create automated systems to follow up with every lead, prospect and client that comes into your world. From collecting business cards to building your mailing list from website visitors to staying connected to past clients - everything point of contact should have a follow-up system. TIP: Create a Tiered-Follow-Up System. For instance, let’s say the first follow-up or follow-ups to “cold” leads could be labeled 1st Tier that can be delegated to a virtual assistant or team member. If your personal attention is requested or required at a later time, the follow-up could be escalated to 2nd Tier that’s handled personally by you. Reserve your personal attention for only the ideal prospects, all other low-payoff follow-up should be automated or handled by staff. Don’t let the demands of running your own business distract you from success. Be aware of sabotaging habits that prevent you from boosting the revenue necessary to take your business, and life, to the next level. Growing your business is often a lesson in letting go and focusing. It’s about letting go of the low-payoff tasks, so you have the mental space and time to focus on high-payoff tasks.

4 Sabotaging Habits that Prevent You from Boosting Revenue

Mar 14, 2019 00:08:21

Description:

As a business owner, it’s important to recognize how valuable your time is - and how you choose to spend it. Yes, the bookkeeping is important, and so is voice-mail and email, but those tasks are not directly responsible for generating revenue, and are better left to be managed by someone else. Are you guilty of focusing on the less important (low-payoff) tasks when you should be actively engaged with the most important (high-payoff) tasks? If you have ever been guilty of this, continue listening to discover four common self-sabotaging habits that keep business owners from the revenue and success they want and deserve. 1. Wasting Time on Low-Payoff Tasks As the business owner, you are a valuable piece of the revenue-generating and business development puzzle. If you are sitting at a desk spending the majority of your time on low-payoff tasks, you don’t have the time to focus upon the most important part of your business: generating revenue. Would you hire a $100-an-hour team member to do a $20-an-hour task? Not likely. This is the same reasoning behind why you shouldn’t be the company bookkeeper or receptionist. (This is not to say that these tasks are not important, but they are not directly related to driving immediate revenue; hence, they are low-payoff tasks). Your sole focus should be upon the high-payoff tasks, aka. the revenue-generating tasks. All low-payoff tasks should be completely removed from your schedule and delegated to a virtual assistant or team member so you can focus your energy on the high-payoff tasks. TIP: Doing low payoff activities are what I call revenue generating avoidance activities. You may not like doing some revenue generation and business development activities, but you may be the best and maybe the only person to do it and get it done. 2. Ignoring High-Payoff Tasks Do you know what you need to be doing to boost revenue - but you’re not doing it or doing it on a consistent basis? Perhaps the fear of doing tasks outside your comfort zone is stopping you from doing the very thing that will make all the difference in your business revenue and ultimate success? Let’s be clear: if you own your own business, you must become very astute at recognizing, and completing, the high-payoff tasks or you will soon be out of business. Let’s say you’re the creative genius type; the sales part of your business isn’t your thing. You could hire a sales team to help drive in some sales, but at some point you’re going to have to tackle the very thing that scares you. It takes courage to step out of your comfort zone and conquer the things that scare you, but you can do it. To help conquer the fear, focus on the process of learning how to master your craft. Just as you mastered the creative genius, you can master the business development and revenue generation, too. TIP: Mastering your high-payoff tasks is more important than you think because once you master the high-payoff tasks; you are in a much higher probability position to achieve your goals in the time frame you have set. 3. Lacking Intimate Knowledge of Your Business In this case, ignorance is not bliss. In order to create a successful, profitable business, you must have intimate knowledge of your business (including where the majority of your revenue originates or could originate). If you don’t - you’re going to continue to struggle with generating the level of revenue you want and deserve. Get to know your business as intimately as you would a partner, learning its quirks, perks, strengths and weaknesses. Accentuate the strengths, while committing to work on the weaknesses. Commit to continual learning so you are on top of potential opportunities. Technology advancements move fast and you need to keep up to stay in the game. TIP: Think of your business as a valuable partner: the more you know about it, the better you can maintain a healthy relationship. Explore what makes it tick, where it could use some extra help or counseling, and commit to being the best partner you can. 4. Failure to Follow-Up Although it’s mentioned lastly here, failure to follow-up is one of the top self-sabotaging habits in business. Sometimes the only thing separating you from a new or repeat client is the follow-up. A simple email or phone call could boost business revenue with little effort.

6 Ways Negative Client Feedback Makes Your Business Better

Mar 8, 2019 00:06:17

Description:

There’s no doubt about it, handling negative client feedback can be downright uncomfortable. No one likes to listen to complaints and no one wants to be criticized or rejected by anyone; even by a client. We’re human; it stings when we fall short of a goal or when we don’t receive the approval we crave. But what if you could get past the discomfort of negative client feedback to discover the benefits that will make your business even better? Okay, let’s get to the 6 Ways Negative Client Feedback Makes Your Business Better… Way #1. It Shows You’re Committed to Your Clients Dealing with less than glowing client feedback, head on and objectively, shows you are committed to ensuring your clients have a positive experience. It’s this commitment to serve them to the best of your ability that attracts more clients. When you’re committed to your clients, they’re committed to your business. Way #2. It’s Not Personal; It’s Perception Instead of getting defensive about what went wrong in the client experience, you learn that it doesn’t have anything to do with you. Negative client feedback isn’t a reflection of how you failed or fell short; rather it’s a reflection on the client’s perception of the experience. Client perception is everything. When you can identify the breakdown in the process that changed the client’s perception from positive to negative, you just identified the kink in the system. Remove the kink, improve the system, change the perception. Way #3. Find Out What They Want When a client offers feedback (negative or positive) it’s a prime opportunity to learn what they really want. When Ideal Clients offer less than favorable feedback, identify what they really want - and deliver it. One word of caution: don’t go changing effective policy to please just one. The goal here is to pay attention to the feedback you receive from Ideal Clients - because they are your target market. Receive all feedback with an open mind, keeping in mind that your goal is to serve Ideal Clients to the best of your ability. Way #4. Brainstorm Creative Solutions Client feedback also allows a “springboard” from which creative solutions can be brainstormed. Don’t be afraid to be innovative and forward-thinking. If an Ideal Client is seeking a service or product that you’re not currently offering (and it will attract more Ideal Clients) - how can you implement it? Just because it hasn’t been done before doesn’t mean there isn’t a way to effectively do it. Listening to what your clients want and need is an invitation to get creative and implement innovative products and services that will serve your clients and grow your business. Way #5. Solicit Client Feedback Before Launching New Products & Services It happens every day; businesses all over the world solicit client feedback before expending time and money on new product and service launches. Instead of waiting for negative client feedback, ask them what they think about new products and/or service ideas. Send out a quick survey that takes no more than a few moments to complete - with an incentive for filling it out. Here are a few examples: • free PDF of an upcoming book (either the entire book or free chapter) • free online access to beta-product or program (full or limited access) • free digital download of a beta-product • discounted or early-bird pricing on a beta-product or program Way #6. Make it Easy for Clients to Submit Feedback Clients can spot a reluctant client-feedback business from a mile away - and it instantly reduces the trust factor. As you well know, when you lose the trust of your clients - you lose business. Make it easy for them to submit feedback by providing contact information that’s easily visible on your business cards, website and marketing materials. You’ll likely find when you provide an easily-accessible feedback system the amount of positive feedback increases. Some firms utilize a board of existing ideal clients to regularly provide feedback and ideas. If you can learn to handle negative client feedback without taking it personally, you’ve tapped into one of the best ways to improve and grow your business.

9 Tips for Inspiring Referrals

Feb 7, 2019 00:09:01

Description:

Today we are going to talk about 9 Tips for Inspiring Referrals. Getting new clients can be one of the biggest challenges in building a business; however, leveraging the power of referrals can dramatically reduce the expense and energy of building your client base. Many businesses focus on the externals of inspiring referrals, so we’re going to focus on the internals. As you know, you are the hub of your business - it can only be successful to the extent you are willing to grow and learn. Before you can inspire referrals, it’s important to get clear on the basics: Tip #1: Get Clear and Focused Ever run into someone at a networking event who seems confused or vague about what they do? They’re either not clear (or can’t convey) on what exactly they do or whom exactly they can help. Before you can inspire referrals, you must get very clear and focused about what you specifically do and for whom. Tip #2: Establish Expertise You don’t have to be the best in the industry; you have to be the best at what you do. Establishing expertise is much easier when you focus on doing what you do best. Find that thing you do that no one else does and leverage it by marketing it when you ask for referrals. Tip #3: Know Who You Love Working With To spark inspiration in others, you must be authentically passionate about whom you love to help. When you love your clients, the passion will show in your dialog and expressions, inspiring others to refer clients. Would you rather refer clients to someone who appears drab and bored with their business - or someone who appears genuine, passionate and capable? Tip #4: Know Your Ideal Clients In order to serve your clients to the best of your ability, you must know them - inside and out. What drives their passion or purpose? What makes them tick? What are their biggest challenges? How do you specifically solve them? How do they spend their leisure time? When you know your ideal clients, and can authentically relate to them, it’s easier to describe them to the network connections that can send you referrals. The idea here is to grasp a broad snapshot of your ideal clients. Tip #5: Describe Your Ideal Clients in 10 Words or Less A unique, genuine and concise client description will inspire referrals. Knowing your clients on the deepest level (as we discussed in tip #4) is only one part of the process; the other is being able to clearly and concisely describe them. Follow this 4-Step Exercise to create a unique and genuine description: 1) List the most noticeable qualities of your ideal clients (qualities that anyone who knows your ideal client will easily recognize). 2) List the qualities you love about your ideal clients. 3) List specific problems of your clients that you solve with your expertise. 4) Finally, bring it all together by circling keywords from each list (1 through 3) and creating an Ideal Client Description in 10 words or less. An online resource and exercise to help you create or update your Ideal Client Profile is available at https://www.accountabilitycoach.com/coaching-store/inner-circle-store/. This exercise and many other resources are available under the free Silver Membership. Use this online exercise to help you get clarity. Tip #6: Make the Referral Process Easy Make it easy for people to refer clients to you by creating a system that manages and tracks your referrals. It doesn’t have to be technologically advanced; it just has to be a reliable system that is followed every time. Whether the referral process is tracked manually or by software, the important thing to remember is to keep the process easy. Make it easy for people to send you referrals - make it easy to payout their referral fee, if there is one. The key is that the system is easy, consistent and reliable. To download my complimentary referral tracking spreadsheet and help you increase your revenue, go to https://www.accountabilitycoach.com/referral-tracking-workbook/. Tip #7: Consider an Automated Referral/Affiliate Software Tracking your referrals manually is an acceptable solution temporarily, but not the most effective long-term solution. There are numerous affiliate software programs available that make the referral process easier and faster. In fact, there are numerous platforms that manage all aspects of the referral process, eliminating the chance of someone falling through the cracks. In my work with business professionals, I find that they often say to me that they have prospects that they haven’t followed up with (for whatever reason), or they lost track of some of the referrals people gave them. First of all, it’s hard to believe that someone wouldn’t have a process for tracking their referrals/prospects because that is potential revenue – but apparently this happens and probably more than it should. So, I came up with a simple tracking spreadsheet to help my clients better know who they have in their pool of prospects, so they know where they are at in their pipeline, and they don’t lose anyone (or drown them) on the way. To download my complimentary referral tracking spreadsheet and help you increase your revenue, go to https://www.accountabilitycoach.com/referral-tracking-workbook/. To be an affiliate of mine, go to https://www.accountabilitycoach.com/affiliates. Tip #8: Share Client Testimonials If you’re not sharing your client testimonials, you’re not leveraging your greatest asset: happy and satisfied clients. It’s a known fact that client testimonials weigh heavily (pro or con) in the minds of prospective client. Place client testimonials every ‘marketable’ piece of your business: on your website, the back of your business cards, marketing brochures, promotional items, etc. You can even print and frame client testimonials and hang them up in your office. Include a photo with the testimonial where appropriate. It is easier than ever before to capture audio and video testimonials that you can use in addition to the printed words. Tip #9: Create Success Stories Success stories go far beyond the basic client testimonial. The goal with a success story is linking your product, program or service to the long-term benefits. As you can imagine, when clients can effectively and genuinely tie a specific benefit of working with you to a specific success, it gives your expertise more influence. Here’s how you do this: Contact past clients and ask them to provide a client testimonial (original or updated via written, verbal or video message) outlining a specific benefit or solution they received as a result of working with you, and how that benefit or solution has since contributed to their long-term achievements. Post your clients’ success stories prominently throughout your marketing materials - anywhere you can. Above all, remember that inspiring referrals starts with a clear and concise message. It’s up to you to create a clear vision for your business and convey that message in a way that inspires your network to more easily send referrals your way.

9 Tips for Inspiring Referrals

Feb 7, 2019 00:09:01

Description:

Today we are going to talk about 9 Tips for Inspiring Referrals. Getting new clients can be one of the biggest challenges in building a business; however, leveraging the power of referrals can dramatically reduce the expense and energy of building your client base. Many businesses focus on the externals of inspiring referrals, so we’re going to focus on the internals. As you know, you are the hub of your business - it can only be successful to the extent you are willing to grow and learn. Before you can inspire referrals, it’s important to get clear on the basics: Tip #1: Get Clear and Focused Ever run into someone at a networking event who seems confused or vague about what they do? They’re either not clear (or can’t convey) on what exactly they do or whom exactly they can help. Before you can inspire referrals, you must get very clear and focused about what you specifically do and for whom. Tip #2: Establish Expertise You don’t have to be the best in the industry; you have to be the best at what you do. Establishing expertise is much easier when you focus on doing what you do best. Find that thing you do that no one else does and leverage it by marketing it when you ask for referrals. Tip #3: Know Who You Love Working With To spark inspiration in others, you must be authentically passionate about whom you love to help. When you love your clients, the passion will show in your dialog and expressions, inspiring others to refer clients. Would you rather refer clients to someone who appears drab and bored with their business - or someone who appears genuine, passionate and capable? Tip #4: Know Your Ideal Clients In order to serve your clients to the best of your ability, you must know them - inside and out. What drives their passion or purpose? What makes them tick? What are their biggest challenges? How do you specifically solve them? How do they spend their leisure time? When you know your ideal clients, and can authentically relate to them, it’s easier to describe them to the network connections that can send you referrals. The idea here is to grasp a broad snapshot of your ideal clients. Tip #5: Describe Your Ideal Clients in 10 Words or Less A unique, genuine and concise client description will inspire referrals. Knowing your clients on the deepest level (as we discussed in tip #4) is only one part of the process; the other is being able to clearly and concisely describe them. Follow this 4-Step Exercise to create a unique and genuine description: 1) List the most noticeable qualities of your ideal clients (qualities that anyone who knows your ideal client will easily recognize). 2) List the qualities you love about your ideal clients. 3) List specific problems of your clients that you solve with your expertise. 4) Finally, bring it all together by circling keywords from each list (1 through 3) and creating an Ideal Client Description in 10 words or less. An online resource and exercise to help you create or update your Ideal Client Profile is available at https://www.accountabilitycoach.com/coaching-store/inner-circle-store/. This exercise and many other resources are available under the free Silver Membership. Use this online exercise to help you get clarity. Tip #6: Make the Referral Process Easy Make it easy for people to refer clients to you by creating a system that manages and tracks your referrals. It doesn’t have to be technologically advanced; it just has to be a reliable system that is followed every time. Whether the referral process is tracked manually or by software, the important thing to remember is to keep the process easy. Make it easy for people to send you referrals - make it easy to payout their referral fee, if there is one. The key is that the system is easy, consistent and reliable. To download my complimentary referral tracking spreadsheet and help you increase your revenue, go to https://www.accountabilitycoach.com/referral-tracking-workbook/. Tip #7: Consider an Automated Referral/Affiliate Software Tracking your referrals manually is an acceptable solution temporarily, but not the most effective long-term solution.

5 ?s to Ask When You’re Not Motivated to Achieve Your Goals

Jan 20, 2019 00:08:22

Description:

Today we are going to talk about 5 Questions to Ask When You’re Not Motivated to Achieve Your Goals. Even the most motivated of achievers can sometimes feel unmotivated. So, what do you do in those crucial moments of inner negotiation - do I commit to two steps forward or relent to two steps backwards - and how do you justify your decision? What if not being motivated to achieve your goals is a sign of a deeper, unresolved issue? We are going to talk about the five questions to uncover the possible reasons you’re not motivated to achieve your goals: 1. Do I Really Want This? Before you start discounting yourself as being weak or a failure, ask yourself if you really want this. Do you really want the end result? Do you want it bad enough to do whatever it takes to achieve it? If the answer is no to either question, it’s pretty obvious why you may not be motivated to doing the work the goal requires to actually achieve it. Achieving your goals doesn’t necessarily have to be hard, but it can be challenging for any number of reasons. If you don’t have enough fire, passion, and desire to achieve a goal, the process is likely going to be a lot harder than it has to be. Tip: Stick to goals that you want bad enough that the decision to do what you need to do, in order to achieve it, is easy. 2. If I Don’t Want This, What Do I Want? If you’ve asked yourself, do I really want this? and “no” was the answer - there’s only one remaining question to ask: If I don’t want this, what do I really want? The answer may require some soul searching or big dreaming; just be sure it’s something that has enough desire to pull you through the “work” of achieving the goal. Tip: Committing to goals you don’t really want serves little purpose. Instead, craft goals you desire with your heart, guts, and soul - those goals that inspire you to do the work required. These types of goals will get you excited and motivate you to achieving them. 3. What’s My Big Why? In the middle of doing the “work” of goal achievement, it’s easy to lose sight of why you’re doing it. When you find you’re not motivated to keep going, focus on the emotional reason behind why you made the initial commitment. So ask yourself: • Who/what inspired me to make the initial commitment to this goal? • Is my reasoning behind the commitment (my big why) still a high priority - a high enough priority to continue my commitment to doing whatever it takes – and nothing less? If the answer is yes, connect to your big why. It’s as easy as reminding yourself of the emotion that prompted your initial commitment - the why behind your decision. Connecting to the why allows you to feel emotions and renew your commitment to the goal. If the answer is no, they your why isn’t a big enough why - or it may be time to revise your goals, so you can find a big why. 4. What are the Consequences of Not Doing the Work? The goal of this question is to get you thinking about the consequences of not doing the work. There is only ever one reason behind every choice you make: it’s that you believe your choice will bring about greater comfort or happiness and/or reduction of pain or discomfort. Let’s take weight loss as an example. On one hand, you commit to losing 25 lbs because you want to live a long, healthy life, well into your elderly years (goal driven by increasing pleasure and overall good feeling). On the other hand, you commit to losing 25 lbs. because you don’t like the way you look in a bathing suit (goal driven by reducing pain). So, the question is: • Are the consequences of not doing the work undesirable enough to motivate you to do the work needed - right here, right now? If the pleasure of achieving a future goal is not enough to motivate you, then turn the tables. Instead of trying to motivate yourself by pleasure, think about the pain. Is the pain enough to motivate you to do the work? Tip: Pleasure is a more sustainable motivator and is initially the best way to inspire you, but sometimes the realization of pain can provide just the kick-in-the-pants you need to get moving. 5. Do I Want To Stay Stuck Here? If you really want this and you have a strong emotional connection to your big why, but you’re still not motivated enough to do the work, then ask the following questions: • Do I want to stay stuck here? • What if I’m still here, in this same place, next week - next year - in five years? • What if things never change? • If I give up today, how will I feel tomorrow? • Am I going to be happy with any of these realities? Tip: Again, if you can’t find motivation in the pleasure of doing the work, maybe the pain of not doing the work will be enough to get you motivated to achieve your goals. Sometimes a little accountability will also help get you going in the ‘right’ direction. Find someone who you can work with to hold you accountable to your goals and who would like you to hold them accountable to achieving their goals. A little accountability can go a long way and make all the difference. Think of the moments that you find yourself not motivated to achieve your goals not as a reason to beat yourself up for being weak or less than perfect, but as an opportunity to check-in and examine if your goals are still in alignment with where you’re headed. Goals should inspire you into action and propel you along your path to success; if they’re not, use these questions to help you uncover the real issue.

5 ?s to Ask When You’re Not Motivated to Achieve Your Goals

Jan 20, 2019 00:08:22

Description:

Today we are going to talk about 5 Questions to Ask When You’re Not Motivated to Achieve Your Goals. Even the most motivated of achievers can sometimes feel unmotivated. So, what do you do in those crucial moments of inner negotiation - do I commit to two steps forward or relent to two steps backwards - and how do you justify your decision? What if not being motivated to achieve your goals is a sign of a deeper, unresolved issue? We are going to talk about the five questions to uncover the possible reasons you’re not motivated to achieve your goals: 1. Do I Really Want This? Before you start discounting yourself as being weak or a failure, ask yourself if you really want this. Do you really want the end result? Do you want it bad enough to do whatever it takes to achieve it? If the answer is no to either question, it’s pretty obvious why you may not be motivated to doing the work the goal requires to actually achieve it. Achieving your goals doesn’t necessarily have to be hard, but it can be challenging for any number of reasons. If you don’t have enough fire, passion, and desire to achieve a goal, the process is likely going to be a lot harder than it has to be. Tip: Stick to goals that you want bad enough that the decision to do what you need to do, in order to achieve it, is easy. 2. If I Don’t Want This, What Do I Want? If you’ve asked yourself, do I really want this? and “no” was the answer - there’s only one remaining question to ask: If I don’t want this, what do I really want? The answer may require some soul searching or big dreaming; just be sure it’s something that has enough desire to pull you through the “work” of achieving the goal. Tip: Committing to goals you don’t really want serves little purpose. Instead, craft goals you desire with your heart, guts, and soul - those goals that inspire you to do the work required. These types of goals will get you excited and motivate you to achieving them. 3. What’s My Big Why? In the middle of doing the “work” of goal achievement, it’s easy to lose sight of why you’re doing it. When you find you’re not motivated to keep going, focus on the emotional reason behind why you made the initial commitment. So ask yourself: • Who/what inspired me to make the initial commitment to this goal? • Is my reasoning behind the commitment (my big why) still a high priority - a high enough priority to continue my commitment to doing whatever it takes – and nothing less?

4 Tips for Sticking To Your Goals

Nov 6, 2018 00:06:43

Description:

We’ve all been there before…we find a goal that inspires us, and we commit to doing the work…until life derails us. Whether it was that vacation, your assistant suddenly quits, or death in the family, the truth is life sometimes distracts us from our goals. Dealing with the disruption is one thing, getting back on track can be another. Here we go with the 4 tips for sticking to your goals and getting back on track. Tip #1: Focus on the Reward - Not the Work Wise sages advise us to “be in the moment,” but let’s face it - you don’t always feel like running that last mile. You’re human; sometimes you lose your motivation in the middle of having to “do the work.” If you’re losing your motivation, switch your focus on the reward. Focus on the good feelings of having accomplished your goal and how much easier it will be the next time because you will have broken through another limiting belief. “We only learn our limits by going beyond them.” ~Unknown Tip #2: The Have-To’s Sometimes Turn into the Want-To’s The work involved with achieving goals can feel like a “have-to” in the beginning, but they often turn into a “want-to” by the end of the process. They become a positive habit - a healthy way of being - while the work part eventually melts away. This happens because it’s not always about the end result - it’s about the person you become as a result of the process. When you learn a new way of living - a way of living that better represents and supports your true potential - things that used to be a “have-to” transform into a “want-to.” “Conquer your bad habits or they will conquer you.” ~Charles A. Jaffe Tip #3: It’s Who You Become in the Process The person you woke up as today may not be the same person you wake up as tomorrow - or the day after that - or next week - or ten years from now. While it’s impossible to predict exactly who you’ll be in the future, it’s a safe bet that you will not be the exact same person. Life is a process of constant change and transformation. Each day we learn more about ourselves, which results in greater clarity of our true desires. The path between where we are and where we want to be becomes more clear and focused, creating a deep and focused desire to see the process through. Setting goals - and the work involved with achieving them - is not so much about the end result, as much as a deep, and often indefinable, desire to fulfill our greatest potential. To grow - to expand - to become all that we can be. The person you end up becoming by the end of a journey (the process of goal setting and achieving is most definitely a journey!) is not the same person who started the journey. Achieving goals teaches you that you had what it took to achieve something you maybe weren’t sure you could, in the beginning. The process teaches you that you had more than you thought: more guts, more stamina, more determination, more commitment, more skill. The process shifts your perceptions, increases your self-esteem, confidence, and uplevels your mindset - all of which changes how you feel about the ‘work.’ “What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals." ~Zig Ziglar Tip #4: Do You Want To Start Over Again? When you realize that each decision could carry a consequence, you can begin to make better decisions. If you spend energy and time doing the work, it doesn’t take too much “undoing” or “starting again” before you discover you do not want to do something twice or three times if you only have to do it once. We see this time and time again in people who unconsciously (sometimes consciously) sabotage their hard work. They take two steps forward - then three steps back. They go to the gym only to go home and over-indulge in a bowl of ice cream. They run five miles each day for two weeks only to spend the next six months being sedentary. They quit smoking for one week only to avoid kicking the habit for another year. When you realize the amount of work that goes into achieving your goals, taking two steps forward only to take three steps back hardly seems worth it. Each day is a new opportunity to make even better choices. The next time you’re tempted to go back on your promise or get off track from your success, stop. Stop and ask: Do I want to undo the work I’ve already done? Do I really want to start over again? “All achievements, whether in the business, intellectual, or spiritual world are the result of definitely directed thought.” ~James Allen Above all, remember that life can sometimes come at you unexpectedly. There is no failure in temporary distractions as long as you get back on track, headed in the direction in which you desire to go.

14 Tips for Maintaining Work Life Balance

Oct 30, 2018 00:09:38

Description:

Maintaining balance when the demands of work and life are pulling you in different directions can be a bit challenging at times. What’s at the heart of finding balance in your life? Peace, happiness, rest, health? The definition of balance is different for everyone: What may be balance to me may not be balance to you; which is why it’s important to get to the heart of what’s uniquely important in your life. Let’s talk about 14 tips for maintaining work/life balance. 1. Identify Your Core Values (what is truly important to you in life) Above all, honoring your core values is vital to maintaining a sense of balance because it directly affects your quality of life. Identify your core values and make the necessary life/work changes that honor them, so you can enjoy the kind of life you truly want and deserve. To help you identify your core values, you will find an effective exercise in the No Excuses Program (located in the Store at https://www.AccountabilityCoach.com). 2. Know Your Priorities – and Schedule Them If it’s really important, it must be scheduled. As I often say, honor thy calendar. Work and family are not the only important priorities, so be sure to schedule “you” time where you can to refuel, rejuvenate and tend to your own health and well-being. I believe that in order to stay focused on your high payoff activities and achieve your goals you must schedule everything on your calendar. 3. Establish a Home Office If you struggle with traveling to and from an office away from home, save time and get even more done by establishing a home office. Word of caution: it can be easy to get distracted by personal matters and family members when working from home, so set clear “office hours” where you can focus on work and will not be disturbed. Certainly, working virtually is much more common today than it used to be. 4. Work Remotely 1-2 Days per Week If you work best outdoors or in your favorite peaceful environment, schedule “remote” days where you can head to your favorite destination to brainstorm new business ideas or boost production. 5. Reduce Your Expenses It’s easy to get caught up in all the “doing” of life, only to lose track of how much you have to do to keep up with all the “having.” Look around you and ask, “Do I really want or need that _________?” If it’s a financial burden, and provides little or no fulfillment or return, it’s time to dump or downsize. When you don’t have to keep up with all the “having,” you can reduce the “doing” time and be even more profitable. 6. Raise Your Prices As an entrepreneur, raising your prices is one of the easiest and fastest ways to find more life/work balance. It’s pretty simple; when you’re generating more revenue, you have more of an opportunity to work less. Always make sure the value you provide exceeds the price you are charging (perceived value can be different for different people). Increasing value doesn’t mean adding more work time. There are many ways to increase value without adding your time to the equation. 7. Request a Salary Increase As a small business owner, you can always give yourself a raise, assuming there is enough profit in the business. Do the math and make sure the numbers work and give yourself that well-deserved salary increase. 8. Outsource Domestic Chores If domestic chores aren’t your cup of tea – consider delegating them. Unless household chores bring you a sense of pleasure or satisfaction, there is simply no reason to spend your valuable time tending to them. Remember, the name of the game is finding life and work balance. Hiring domestic help is an easy solution to finding more balance. Typically this is a good investment in your life. 9. Hire Personal or Professional Support Success requires assertiveness, and as a successful professional you’re likely to be effective at getting things done. But are you trying to do it all? Are you still doing too much of the low payoff activities yourself? Hiring a personal or professional support person can help you regain balance but picking up some of the slack – even if it’s only a few hours per week. You should be doing what only you can do and delegating the rest. Successful people are excellent delegators. 10. Reduce Travel Time Are you constantly racing from one client meeting to another? Reduce travel time by “chunking” client meetings together either by area or days of the week. Better yet, have them come to you, if at all possible! 11. Offer Virtual/Remote Services It may not be necessary to always meet face-to-face with clients and business partners. Explore virtual or remote services that can still be effective in order to relieve the stress and expense of travel/commute time. There are several web conferencing services available – all you need is a computer and internet connection. A few examples you may want to review are gotomeeting.com, freeconferencesharing.com, skype, and mikogo.com. 12. Integrate the Weisure Lifestyle In 2009, a CNN article, “Welcome to the Weisure Lifestyle,” highlighted a growing trend among entrepreneurs that blurred the lines between work and lifestyle. Today, that trend continues as more professionals and entrepreneurs find enjoyable ways to (and locations) to combine business and leisure. This might be something you should consider exploring. You can find this source information at: http://articles.cnn.com/2009-05-11/living/weisure_1_creative-class-richard-florida-leisure-time?_s=PM:LIVING 13. Know When to Say YES Struggling to find balance may be the result of saying yes to the wrong things. Your time is valuable, so only say yes to the things that are in alignment with your core values and help put you in the highest probability of achieving your goals. The things that are not important or are done out of obligation are better to be delegated or deleted from your task list. 14. Know When to Say NO It can be difficult to say no, but it is absolutely vital to maintaining life/work balance. We often carry an irrational thoughts and emotions when it comes to saying no. Whether it’s a fear of rejection or criticism, we often say yes when we really want to say no. If you are not willing to honor your own well-being and happiness, how can you effectively do it for anyone else? It’s up to you to say no to the things that cause havoc on your life balance. Saying ‘no’ now doesn’t mean ‘no’ forever. You can always say ‘yes’ later when it fits better into your life. We all need to make a living – and there are a myriad of ways to generate revenue in enjoyable and productive ways, other than traditional means. Opportunities to integrate the “weisure” lifestyle are vast, which creates more time to honor the perfect work/life balance that works for you. Get creative. Think outside the box.

14 Tips for Maintaining Work Life Balance

Oct 30, 2018 00:09:38

Description:

Maintaining balance when the demands of work and life are pulling you in different directions can be a bit challenging at times. What’s at the heart of finding balance in your life? Peace, happiness, rest, health? The definition of balance is different for everyone: What may be balance to me may not be balance to you; which is why it’s important to get to the heart of what’s uniquely important in your life. Let’s talk about 14 tips for maintaining work/life balance. 1. Identify Your Core Values (what is truly important to you in life) Above all, honoring your core values is vital to maintaining a sense of balance because it directly affects your quality of life. Identify your core values and make the necessary life/work changes that honor them, so you can enjoy the kind of life you truly want and deserve. To help you identify your core values, you will find an effective exercise in the No Excuses Program (located in the Store at https://www.AccountabilityCoach.com). 2. Know Your Priorities – and Schedule Them If it’s really important, it must be scheduled. As I often say, honor thy calendar. Work and family are not the only important priorities, so be sure to schedule “you” time where you can to refuel, rejuvenate and tend to your own health and well-being.

Description:

The time to implement a strategy is now! The Leaders role in strategy making: We all have a voice in strategy-making, as well as greater latitude to respond opportunistically to developing conditions. In the past, strategic thinking was generally reserved to closed-door meetings with upper management. This method employs feedback with lower-level management, who has direct contact with employees and clients. Strategy making: Sees strategy and change as inescapably linked and assumes that finding new strategic options and implementing them successfully is harder and more important than evaluating them. This rule puts ideas into action and places the importance of the application rather than extensive and time-consuming evaluation before action. Change is happening all the time, so the time to implement the strategy is now – not later – so you can capitalize on the benefits.

8 Tips to Help Manage People Better

Sep 14, 2018 00:08:31

Description:

The success of a business depends hugely on the employees. If they aren’t committed to the goals and don’t put in their best efforts, achieving success can be extremely difficult and maybe impossible. Even if you have achieved considerable success till now, sustaining it in the future and taking your business to the next level is a whole different ballgame. You need to be able to manage the people working for you in the best way possible to make sure they are working towards your business’ success. You need to make sure each and every employee is motivated and working towards the end goal. This requires you to share your vision for the company with them. It is easier said than done though. There are many things you need to do to improve your management skills and manage your employees in a better way. Let’s explore 8 tips that can help you manage people better. 1. Define Values Every business, regardless of scale, needs to have a set of clearly defined values. The values for your business are basically a code your employees follow when performing their day-to-day functions. Not outlining the values of your business causes confusion. The employees are not clear about what to do when faced with any given situation. Defining values also makes your expectations of the employees known to them. That way, they can perform to the standards you expect of them. For instance, the punishment for failure to complete work or violating a business policy should be made clear so that the employees don’t step out of line. 2. Build Teams Some entrepreneurs use the strategy of pitting employees against each other and creating a competitive atmosphere. The idea behind it is clear that employees get motivated to work hard and outperform their peers. However, for a company, it is better that the people learn to work together than on their own. You can think of your business as a well-oiled machine. All the cogs need to be working perfectly and more importantly, working in tandem to make the machine work. 3. Foster Accountability Accountability is a crucial ingredient in a work environment. You need to foster accountability and hold your employees responsible for their work. This results in them taking on more responsibility and makes your job of managing them easier. As you know, added responsibility can be a source of motivation for the employees. They begin feeling that you are relying on them to play a major role in the success of your business. To create the right environment for accountability, you need to outline your expectations clearly. Then, if the employee doesn’t fulfill your expectations, you can reprimand them. All good business owners do allow a grace period for the employee to rectify the situation but don’t make it too extensive or it can cause other employees to not take you seriously. Take the necessary action at the appropriate time. However, don’t try to make an example of the employee just for the sake of intimidating others. 4. Rewards & Punishments The best tools you have in your arsenal for managing people are rewards and punishments. The fear of punishment and the aspiration of a reward are the foremost sources of motivation for most people. You need to use them according to the situation. Make sure there is a balance between rewards and punishments. None of your employees should feel unfairly treated. Using rewards and punishments perfectly can help in managing people better. Punishments are often linked to low productivity and employee morale but can eventually get the work done. Rewards and punishments both can be categorized under tangible and intangible. For instance, simply pestering an employee until they complete their work is an example of intangible punishment. On the other hand, if you issue a written notice or cut the salary of the employee, it becomes a tangible punishment. Same goes as far as rewards are concerned. A pat on the back or a word of encouragement is an intangible reward. Giving someone a bonus (which can be money and a gift certificate for a nice dinner for two, for example) is something tangible. 5. Communicate Open up channels of communication with your employees. Inform them about anything concerning them. Keep them in the loop regarding news or data which may affect their performance. Most importantly, communicate exactly what you expect of them. In short, you should ensure the communication in your company is two-way, not just from you to the employees. 6. Zero-Tolerance While ruling with an iron fist often results in workers losing motivation, this does not mean you let them get away with everything. You need to implement a zero-tolerance policy for misconduct, complacency, and failure to respect the company values. This is extremely important. Once you have shown your employees that you are not going to stand for anyone stepping out of line, they are not likely to attempt to do something like that in the future. 7. Fight Your Ego As a business owner, keeping your ego in check is extremely important for the growth of your business. Often you will find that your decisions are clouded by your ego at being the person in charge. It is true that your employees are working for you and you are directing them. This does not allow you the freedom to treat them in any way you want. Respect your employees and acknowledge the fact that it is because of them that your business is successful. 8. Be a Role Model Last, but not the least, you must be a role model for your employees. This is again something that sounds easy yet is anything but. Make sure you follow the code of values to the letter and make yourself accountable. Admit your mistakes and shortcomings and accept when you are in the wrong. Being a fair and just leader of your business requires you to behave exactly the way you expect others to behave. These are some of the most effective tips you can follow for becoming a better leader. If you do get value from these Podcasts, please take a minute to leave me a short review.

Once you have shown your employees that you are not going to stand for anyone stepping out of line, they are not likely to attempt to do something like that in the future. 7. Fight Your Ego As a business owner, keeping your ego in check is extremely important for the growth of your business. Often you will find that your decisions are clouded by your ego at being the person in charge. It is true that your employees are working for you and you are directing them. This does not allow you the freedom to treat them in any way you want. Respect your employees and acknowledge the fact that it is because of them that your business is successful. 8. Be a Role Model Last, but not the least, you must be a role model for your employees. This is again something that sounds easy yet is anything but. Make sure you follow the code of values to the letter and make yourself accountable. Admit your mistakes and shortcomings and accept when you are in the wrong. Being a fair and just leader of your business requires you to behave exactly the way you expect others to behave. These are some of the most effective tips you can follow for becoming a better leader. If you do get value from these Podcasts, please take a minute to leave me a short review.

9 Online Marketing Tips Internet Newbies

Sep 7, 2018 00:07:37

Description:

Getting your offline business online can be overwhelming and confusing. You find yourself asking questions such as: Do I really need to be on Facebook? What’s the craze over Twitter and how does it help my business? Do I really need a blog and how do I find the time to write blog posts when I’m trying to run my business? These questions, along with many more, are common and important questions to ask when taking your offline business online. This episode is meant to help answer some of your questions and provide guidance for navigating the world of online marketing. Tip 1: The Internet is a Community Realize that the internet is a community and this concept will help you grasp the most important piece of mastering online marketing. You are not here to sell. You are a part of a worldwide community who has valuable solutions to offer your ideal client and prospect community. Tip 2: Keep it Real Internet users can smell “fake” a mile away. Sleazy sales tactics don’t work and no, people don’t care what you had for lunch. What people do want is valuable information and resources! Post free tips - provide links to additional resources like key tips and articles on your blog, podcasts, and videos - announce special promotions. Keep it real, keep it high-value. Tip 3: Social Networking No-No’s If you’re new to social networking, it’s very easy to make a mistake and lose the trust of your tribe forever. In the beginning, do more listening than talking. Think of yourself as the new kid on the block.... learn the ropes, observe, and take notes. Connect with people from various industries and pay close attention to those people who have huge followings (they’re probably doing something right). Model their successes, and steer clear of the social networking no-no’s. Tip 4: Your Website Isn’t Just a Website Just a few short years ago, websites were horrible to look at: flashing banners, hot pink backgrounds, hard-to-read text, and bad headshots. Today, your website isn’t just a website - it’s a presence. It’s your brand. It’s your business. It’s YOU. It must be engaging, informative and offer massive value without cheesy sales tactics. Tip 5: Consistency is Key Because the internet is a community, you must be willing to consistently participate. Tweeting once per month isn’t going to get you noticed. Online marketing should be part of your everyday marketing plan. A few minutes per day (at least 4 days per week) is the quickest, easiest and cheapest way to connect with over 1 billion people - some of whom I’m sure are your ideal prospects. Your assistant can help by taking existing information and consistently put it out there for you. Tip 6: Expand Your Market While you may not be interested in becoming the next Mari Smith, there are plenty of people, worldwide, who recognize the power of the internet to expand their market and grow their business. Why would you not access a resource that provides you with free or low-cost ways to reach more of your ideal prospects? Leverage the resources available to you! Tip 7: Get the Inside Scoop on What People Really Want The internet provides a perfect way for you to find out exactly what your market wants. It’s as simple as joining LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter - and then listening to what people are saying. What frustrates them? What products or programs are they raving about? Who are they following - and interacting with? You’ll find that people are generally brutally honest about their experiences - and that helps you help them. Tip 8: Find an Untapped Resource of Allies, Partners, and Clients You’ll quickly find that there is an endless supply of people who are willing to spread the word about high-quality products and services to their friends and family. If you have a great product or service, you’ll probably find people who are willing to sing your praises. You’ll also likely find unexpected joint-venture partners, affiliates and clients! Tip 9: Reach More People with Less Effort Person-to-person networking is effective, but it can be extremely time-consuming. The obvious benefit to getting your business online is the ability to reach mass amounts of prospective clients. This isn’t to completely rule out the value of live networking events, rather online marketing should be utilized as a complement to person-to-person marketing. Regardless of the stage of your business, it needs to have an internet presence. Remember, a presence goes beyond a boring website - it truly is about having a presence online. The goal of internet marketing is to help you leverage resources that provide access to more ideal clients with less effort. By offering solid value and strong internet presence, you could be serving more clients without having to work harder. Prioritize these 9 ideas in the order of the ones you would like to implement first and that you feel will put you in the highest probability position to get even more business and serve more people.

Setting Client Boundaries:4 Tips to Handle Demanding Clients

Aug 29, 2018 00:08:49

Description:

The important thing to remember when handling demanding clients is to take sole responsibility for establishing and managing their expectations. Manage them effectively - and everyone will remain on the same page and walk away satisfied. Fail to manage them effectively - and you’ll end up with some level of conflict (however minor or severe). Clients will follow your lead; they will be however demanding or easy-going as your client boundaries dictates, and it’s best to establish those boundaries before the contract is signed. 1. Establish Rules from the Get-Go Establishing rules from the get-go is ideal and will help ensure a positive client relationship. Ideally, all projects should be secured with a firm contract (that protects and supports you and your client) before any money is exchanged or any work commences. This not only ensures everyone is on the same page from the very beginning of a new relationship, it helps reduce the chances of possible conflict at any time during the project. If you’ve been doing business without any client boundaries in place, it’s best if you do not take on any additional clients until you establish a basic contract or service agreement. If you’ve never used contracts, approach it from this angle: • What are you clear on delivering and not delivering? • What problems or issues have you run into in the past? • How could you design your contract or service agreement to avoid those problems and issues in the future? • What are the expectations they can expect from you and you from them? You may also want to consider what you would like to do and how you would like to direct the outcome of future projects before you design the program. For example, if you design a program that makes you miserable, it’s going to be near impossible to create a positive experience for your clients. On the other hand, if you could design the program - and direct the outcome should problems arise - how would you like to do that and how would it best be done? (Be clear on what you’re willing and not willing to do.) If you’re just starting out in business or you’re new to a specific industry, it can be difficult to establish rules when you’re not always sure what exactly will be required. That’s okay. In the beginning, you’ll have to feel your way through, client by client, until you gain complete clarity. The best advice would be: don’t do anything in the beginning that you are not willing to continue throughout your client relationship and/or for future clients - although sometimes that may be hard to know in the beginning. The internet has many resources that can be found to help you in many situations. Communication is very important to any successful relationship. Tell the truth, succinctly and directly, and in a way that is all about them. As an example, if you’re not willing to work late hours or weekends, set your availability strictly to normal business hours, Monday through Friday (or Tuesday through Thursday). If you prefer clients do not have access to your cell phone, set up a business line with a virtual receptionist or automated voice mail that you check 2 to 3 times per day. 2. What to Do When You Change the Rules Mid-Game If you need to change the rules mid-game, be flexible. Remember that expectations were set in motion from the onset and changing them could lead to conflict. If you must change the rules mid-game, get clear on: 1) What the client wants and expects 2) Specifics of the agreement that must be adjusted 3) Specifics of the agreement where you are flexible 4) Specific ways you will meet/exceed client expectations, even with contract adjustments. Clarify these terms as clearly as possible before you arrange a phone conversation with the client. If you are unclear about any terms, clarify them before discussing “changing the rules.” Remember, the biggest trigger to conflict is not properly managing and meeting client expectations. If you know what the client ultimately desires, and the changes that must occur, then you know how to craft your conversation to reach a mutual agreement. 3. Handling Objections and Conflict If client objections arise mid-project there are only three points to clarify and resolve conflict: 1. What does the client want or expect 2. What are you willing to do (and not do) 3. How can you meet/exceed client expectations while still honoring what you are willing (and not willing) to do Arrange an in-person or phone conversation with client to review details and reach mutual agreement and follow up with details in writing (addendum) that requires signatures of all parties involved. Don’t get caught in the drama of he said-she said because it doesn’t really matter who said what. It only matters that you honor your contractual agreements while meeting or exceeding your client’s expectations. Don’t take conflict personally. It’s not usually a personal attack - it’s usually just a symptom of a breakdown in communication and/or a lack of detailed expectation. Use objections and conflicts as springboards to refine future agreements and contracts that better protect all parties and eliminate the possibility of conflict. 4. Consult an Attorney Not surprisingly, the best way to establishing and managing client boundaries is to consult a legal professional who can customize legal agreements for your specific business and industry. A well-crafted agreement will provide protection for you and your clients and establish a solid foundation of expectations, that should they be misunderstood, can be quickly and easily resolved. You don’t need to have the attorney involved to create a new agreement with every new client per se. Having a basic agreement or several basic agreements based on your business and what you offer are typically enough to use with any new client you work with. Above all, keep in mind that your business will evolve as you do. Each new client relationship or project is an opportunity to clarify the desired ideal. To aid in this process, complete an objective review of each client relationship or project upon completion, by creating a simple Likes and Dislikes List, outlining specific aspects you liked or disliked at various stages of the relationship or project. Consider having a ‘debrief’ session after each project is completed to continue to enhance your processes with clients. Set up standards or procedures that can be applied to future contracts and will minimize the “dislikes” while maximizing the “likes.” If you do get value from these Podcasts, please take a minute to leave me a short review.

5 Steps for Inspiring Clients to Work with You

Aug 2, 2018 00:06:45

Description:

You have what they need! So, how do you get them to realize that you are the solution to what they are looking for, so they can be even more successful? Here are 5 steps for inspiring clients to want to work with you. It’s a win-win for everyone. Step 1: Get Them Talking First and foremost, make the conversation about them. Take the focus off “getting the sale” and instead use this time together to evaluate if you are the best person to assist them. Remember, you don’t want to work with anyone; you want to work ideal clients. Although you will be using this initial time together to evaluate if you want to work with them, keep the conversation focused on the prospective client. What is their current biggest struggle or challenge? What is their most immediate or long-term goal? What kind of support or guidance are they looking for? Step 2: Connect Them to Their Current Pain There must be a starting point where you help the prospective client see where they are right now. In other words, they must know where they are right now before they can receive guidance to get where they want to go. From there, it’s important to remember that there are only ever two driving forces behind customers and clients who sign up: 1) Reducing/Eliminating pain or 2) Increasing pleasure The first step in inspiring them to work with you (assuming they are an ideal client and you want to work with them) is to help them feel their current pain. Get them talking about their biggest struggle or challenge - help them connect to the discomfort - and then lead them through Step 3. Step 3: Inspire Them to Imagine Future Possibilities Help them see that what they desire is possible - and that you can assist them in achieving it. Get them talking about their immediate and long-term goal(s) - asking how they feel imagining the real possibilities of their future. Reassure them that achieving any goal is simply a step-by-step process of “right steps” - and that you can successfully guide them through the process with greater ease and improved results. Step 4: Explain How You Can Help Them Go deeper into detail of how you can help them reduce their pain/increase their pleasure and achieve their goals. Emphasize in this step why you’re the best person to assist them in this process, by detailing a brief overview of the steps involved. (Don’t give too much away.) Step 5: Paint the Bridge The final stage to inspiring clients to work with you is to paint the bridge. This is where you connect the dots by reviewing what you’ve discussed thus far. (If you are unclear about any information discussed, this is a good time to ask the prospective clients questions to clarify before you proceed with reviewing. You may also want to invite the prospect to share any last thoughts or ask questions they feel are important for you to know, before you proceed.) The key in Step 5 is to accurately recap: 1) Their current pain, 2) Immediate or future goal(s), 3) Reassure them the goal is possible (if it’s unrealistic, hint at how you can help craft a revised, attainable goal), and finally, 4) How you can effectively support them throughout the process and guide them to achieving their goals. Demonstrate that you understand, highlight your valuable expertise (and how it makes the process easier!) and instruct them how to sign up. Remember, you are the bridge to help them get from where they are to where they want to be.

4 Basic Rules of Business Branding

Jul 26, 2018 00:09:48

Description:

If you want to understand how to effectively brand your name, you first need to comprehend the basics of business branding. Business branding isn’t a complicated process, but the success of your business branding relies on the relevance, quality and consistency of its design. Most business owners fall short when branding their business because they try to overcomplicate the process. However, if you follow the basics of business branding and resist the temptation to lose the focus of the message, you should be well on your way towards creating an effective brand. The most important basic factor in branding your business is conveying a message. You only have a few seconds to capture the attention of potential clients, and in those few seconds, your brand must clearly convey several points. Make those few precious seconds count by making it easy for your audience to comprehend your specialty with just a glance. Stick to these 4 Basic Rules of Business Branding and watch your business grow. Business Branding Rule #1: Choose colors wisely It may be your desire to choose colors that are most appealing to suit your personal taste, but they may not always be the most ideal for the success of your business. Advertising and marketing firms understand the emotions that colors convey and always choose the colors of their marketing carefully. Here’s a quick reference for the emotions conveyed by common colors. Red: Very emotionally intense color. Associated with energy, war, danger, strength, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love. Use it as an accent color to stimulate people to make quick decisions. Orange: To the human eye, orange is a very hot color, so it gives the sensation of heat. Represents enthusiasm, fascination, happiness, creativity, determination, attraction, success, encouragement, and stimulation. Use it to catch attention and highlight the most important elements of your design. Yellow: Yellow is the color of sunshine and produces a warming effect. It's associated with joy, happiness, intellect, and energy. Yellow is an unstable and spontaneous color, so avoid using yellow if you want to suggest stability and safety. Green: Symbolizes growth, harmony, freshness, and fertility. Green has strong emotional correspondence with safety and has great healing power. Dark green is also commonly associated with money. Blue: Blue is the color of the sky and sea. It is often associated with depth and stability. It symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, truth, and heaven. Avoid using blue when promoting food and cooking, because blue suppresses appetite. Purple: Symbolizes power, nobility, luxury, and ambition. Conveys wealth and extravagance and is associated with wisdom, dignity, independence, creativity, mystery, and magic. Light purple is a good choice for a feminine design; use bright purple when promoting children's products. White: White is associated with light, goodness, innocence, purity, and virginity. Considered to be the color of perfection and conveys safety, purity, and cleanliness. Use white to suggest simplicity in high-tech products. Black: Associated with power, elegance, formality, death, evil, and mystery. It usually carries a negative connotation, but denotes strength and authority. Combined with red or orange – other very powerful colors – black gives a very aggressive color scheme. Business Branding Rule #2: Let the logo do the talking In those crucial first few seconds of grabbing a client’s attention, your logo must convey a clear, concise message that is easily understood. For example, if you fix computers, consider including an image of computer and stethoscope to convey that you’re a computer doctor. Or, if you own a hair salon include an image of old-fashioned vanity lights and shears. Get the idea? The key is to identify at least one tangible icon that represents your business. The slogan should do the talking, while the logo is visually supportive of the message of the slogan. Business Branding Rule #3: Keep the slogan short and sweet Remember, you only have a few seconds to grab someone’s attention. That means you have about two seconds to convey your message. The brain can process information at amazing speeds, and you’d be surprised by how much information can be conveyed in a split second - but only when it’s done properly. Your slogan should always be attached to your logo, appearing directly below or next to the image. Make your slogan seven words or less - again short and sweet. Be sure the slogan says what you do without making it sound dry and uninteresting. For example, let’s say you are a business coach. You could create a slogan that clearly and concisely conveys what you do - without having to provide a lengthy elevator speech. Here are some examples: • “The Small Business Guru” • “Take Your Business Global” • “The Home Business Coach” • The Referral Coach™ - already taken • The Strategic Coach™ - already taken • The Accountability Coach™ - already taken Business Branding Rule #4: Consistency is king Now that you have your logo and slogan, it’s important to stay consistent. In every piece of marketing from your letterhead to advertising spots, the logo and slogan should always remain consistent. If you’ve hired a professional graphic artist or marketing firm to create your business look, they should have provided a digital file with your logo and slogan in a variety of positions and sizes (to accommodate different sizes and methods of media). Once your design is set, do not waver from it. Ideally, keep the logo/slogan layouts to no more than three different layouts to accommodate different media such as website, letterhead, and print and web advertisements. Make sure that both your print marketing and online marketing are consistent. The design and color scheme should remain true to your website theme. You’d be surprised how many people will type in your URL when directed through an advertisement, only to get thrown off by a website design that looks nothing like the ad. When you don’t make the effort to keep your branding consistent you run the chance of confusing your potential clients - hence, losing revenue. Action Steps 1. Review Tip #1. Does your current logo reflect the type of image you want to portray? If not, hire a graphic designer to design a new logo and choose appropriate colors. Ask a friend or colleague for a recommendation, or go to Upwork.com or Guru.com to find a freelance graphic designer. Expect to pay $75 - $250 per logo. 2. Review Tip #3. Does your slogan really grab your ideal client? Put yourself in your client’s place. What slogan would make you want to hire you? Refine it, if need be, to reflect the most focused message possible that invokes immediate action. 3. Review Tip #4. Does your marketing contain a consistent message and design? If not, follow your company logo (design and color) and make necessary adjustments to all marketing pieces, including your website. My hope for our time together is that you got value and an idea or two that will help you be even more successful – personally and professionally.

3 Questions to Ask Before You Make Important Decisions

Jul 12, 2018 00:07:10

Description:

When it comes to making decisions that positively affect your life, there is only one thing to do. First, ask yourself how you feel about the opportunity. Do you get butterflies because you’re excited or does your gut feel heavy or weighed down, as if you’ve got a feeling that something bad is about to happen? Sometimes it’s hard to tell how you feel about something. Perhaps you feel great about it, but it’s far outside your comfort zone so you have a lot of fear attached to it. Maybe your heart is telling you to go for it, but that means you’ll be placing hardship on someone else – and that causes feelings of guilt. So how do you make important decisions that positively affect your life? Grab a pen and paper and go to a quiet place where you are happy, comfortable and will not be disturbed. At the top of the page, write the opportunity in question form. Start the question with, “Should I…..” or “Is it right for me to…” Read the question over a few times and then close your eyes. The purpose of this exercise is to remove visual distractions and move your attention from your head to your gut. Sit silently and wait to see what feelings come up for you. If your gut feels light and full of excitement, this may be an ideal opportunity for you. If your gut feels heavy, low or uncomfortable, it’s probably not the right thing for you at this time – and you pretty much have your answer. Trusting your decision on emotion alone can be a lot to ask for most of us. Although we are each born with a sort of emotional navigational system to help us make the right choice, you will not find “Learning to Listen to Your Gut” as part of your curriculum in high school or college. Rarely are we taught how to listen to our emotional navigational system, so as adults we just have to use it until it becomes second nature. Your emotional navigational system is rooted in your “gut” and acts as the sort of sensitive, emotionally based female. Your brain on the other hand, is like the typical male: it is only concerned with logical reasoning. In order to rest easy with your decision, you have to satisfy both aspects of your being. I’m going to share 3 Questions to Ask Yourself Before Making Important Decisions. Question 1. Does this opportunity align with my short-term goals? Yes or No? If the answer is yes, continue to Question 2. If the answer is no, go no further. If it doesn’t align with your short-term goals, it definitely won’t align with your long-term goals. Remember, you are only going to take steps that lead you closer to your goals – no exceptions. Question 2. Does this align with my long-term goals? Yes or No? If the answer is yes, continue to Question 3. If the answer is no, this is not the right time to pursue this opportunity. Question 3. Am I making this decision from faith or fear? Faith or Fear? This is where you tie your feelings to your logical reasoning. What are you saying to yourself when you think about this opportunity – are your statements based on faith or fear? These are not necessarily things you are saying aloud – these may be thoughts running around in your head. Here are a few examples. Statements based on faith “I’m not sure how this will come together, but I know and believe it will work.” “I’ve been waiting my whole life for an opportunity like this.” “I’m a little nervous, but I know I can do it!” Statements based on fear “If I don’t make this work, I could lose everything.” “I’ve got to find a way to take care of my family, I hope this works.” “I’m desperate; I’ll take anything I can get.” See the difference? Faith statements are based in words like, “I know I can – I know it will work.” Fear statements are based in words like, “I’m desperate – I could lose everything.” Never, ever make important decisions from fear. If you cannot find a way to feel good about the opportunity, let it go. An opportunity that is a better fit will come along. Decision-making should always explore both emotional and logical aspects to get the full picture. The trick is learning to distinguish between your feelings and justifications, and then trust that you made the right decision. Next time you have an important decision to make, ask yourself these three questions to help you make the right choice for your success.

11 Tips for Staying Focused & on Track to Achieve Your Goals

Jun 28, 2018 00:10:52

Description:

As a business owner, there are things you must do in order to accomplish your goals so you can have the kind of business and life you have dreamed of having. From managing a team to handling clients - and everything in between - it can be easy to lose complete control of your day. We all have the same 24 hours available each day; it’s how we chose to use those 24 hours that’s makes the difference. Meetings, client services, and a To-Do List a mile long are frequent daily tasks in the world of running a business. The key is find an effective way to handle our daily routine to stay focused and on track to achieve your goals in the shortest amount of time and the least amount of effort. Tip #1: Break Goals Down in to Daily Action Steps - and Track Them Somewhere between running a business and having a personal life, it’s not uncommon for our goals to fall by the wayside. If you are not paying attention to your goals on a daily basis, you’re probably taking the long way around. Break goals down into daily action steps and put them into your daily calendar/diary/planner. Those action steps should be labeled high priority and handled as early on in the day as possible, or at the best time that leads to the best result. No excuses. Tip #2: Remove Distractions and Interruptions from Your Life Wasting time on low priority tasks is one of the most common sources of interrupting your success. Email - texting - social media - internet surfing - personal phone calls - chatting - etc. are time wasters for many of us. Work hours should be reserved for work. Close email and internet outside specific time blocks. Turn off the ringer on your phone or filter calls through a team member. Remove paperwork that you are not currently working on from your sight. Create a system that works best for you - and stick to it. Consistent execution of new habits that put you in the highest probability position to make better progress, so you can create the business and life you want. Tip #3: Be Aware of Sabotaging Habits No one is ever completely free of self-sabotaging habits, which is why it’s important to be aware of your tendencies. When you are aware of your sabotaging habits, you can easily spot them - and stop them - from distracting you from your success. Whether you create procrastination, overwhelm, emotional crisis, physical exhaustion, relationship drama - or a host of other common habits - you’re creating self-sabotage. Achieving your goals becomes a lot easier when you can spot troublesome habits, and consciously and quickly get yourself back on track. Tip #4: Get Clear on the Why When you get clear on why you’re working on any particular task, you can intellectually grasp whether you really need to be doing it at all or having someone else do it. Ask yourself, “Why am I doing ___________________ (insert task)?” If your answer isn’t a good enough why, you know you shouldn’t be spending your valuable time on it. Tip #5: Chunk Like-Tasks Together Prep time and pre-task setup can eat up huge amounts of your time, so chunk like-tasks together. Another benefit to chunking? Reducing the “scatter-brain” effect. Multi-tasking and jumping between tasks reduces your brain’s ability to maintain focus, effectiveness and efficiency. Examples of chunking your time include: Listening to voicemail/returning important phone calls - reading emails/replying to urgent inquiries – making prospecting calls – seeing clients in your office – creating marketing materials - coordinating off-site meetings with other appointments/errands - etc. Along this same line of thinking, consider scheduling time to really prepare for the meeting on your calendar (5 minutes, 10 minutes, 15 minutes). Also, schedule time after your meeting to complete any actions you need to so you don’t have to try and remember them later in the day, two days later, or at the end of the week. Get things done and the move on to the next meeting with a clear head for that meeting. Tip #6: Create a Block Schedule Create hour blocks in your workday where you focus on a single task or a chunk of like-tasks. During that block of time, nothing else gets your attention, except the task or tasks in front of you. At the end of the block (1, 2, 3 or 4 hours) whatever was on your calendar is now finished. Tip #7: Live Life By Appointment Only! When someone calls in, have your assistant take a complete and in-depth message, and schedule a time you will return the call. I have never heard of anyone who says the life ‘phone tag.’ So, stop phone tag! Meet with your assistant and other team members by appointment only to reduce interruptions. As much as possible, live your life by face-to-face or phone appointments only. You’ll be amazed at how much more efficient you are by applying this one concept. Tip #8: Ready-Set-Go! For intense task completion, use a timer and set it for 5, 10, 15, 20 or 30 minutes. Using a timer allows you to create a game or healthy competition against the clock - giving your focus and energy an edge. You’d be surprised how much you can accomplish when you create a fun or somewhat competitive environment. Tip #9: Do What You Do Best, Delegate the Rest You should only be focusing on the tasks that you complete with the greatest efficiency, effectiveness and results. Everything else should be delegated to a team member, assistant, or virtual assistant who produces the best results. Ask yourself, “Could someone else do what I’m doing, if I just assigned it to them, told them how or gave them a process to get it done?” Too many entrepreneurs I talk to hold on to things way too long just because they have always done them. Successful entrepreneurs are excellent delegators! Tip #10: Leverage Your Peak Energy Each person has their own unique time of the day when they are at their peak energy. Whether you’re an early bird or night owl, tackle the tasks that require the most energy and focus to complete during your unique peak energy - you’ll get more done in less time with optimal results. Ask yourself, “When is the best time to get the best result for the various activities you do each day?” Tip #11: Eat Healthy for Real Energy Being an entrepreneur requires real energy; sugar, caffeine, and processed foods only offer a false energy and the afternoon energy crash can be severe. Reduce or eliminate sugar, caffeine, and processed foods as much as possible, while boosting raw fruits, vegetables, nuts and whole grains to maintain steady and consistent high energy. Some studies suggest having a small snack/meal every 2-3 hours. Review these 11 tips and decide which ones you will implement first for even greater success. My hope for our time together is that you got value and an idea or two that will help you be even more successful – personally and professionally.

4 Bootstrap Marketing Ideas to Boost Revenue

Jun 14, 2018 00:08:51

Description:

Have you found yourself in a revenue crunch with your business? Generating revenue - fast - is your first priority, but how can you do that when your marketing budget is small or nonexistent. At one time or another, every business owner has stumbled across this same challenge. The challenge being, how do you boost revenue when you have none to spend? Making money doesn’t always take money. These 4 Bootstrapping Marketing Ideas will help you to boost revenue, fast. Bootstrap Marketing Tip #1: Reach Out To Past Clients We’ve all heard the business adage: attaining the business of new clients far outweighs the cost (expenses, time, and effort) of attaining repeat business of existing clients. Reaching out to past clients via phone or email is one of the fastest ways to boost revenue easily. Action: Pick up the phone. Call your past clients and remind them you are here to help them in whatever way you can. You don’t need to hard-sell…just extend a genuine offer of service that you think will benefit them in their business and/or life. Bootstrap Marketing Tip #2: Create a Solution This is the time to get back to the basics: How can you solve your clients’ problem(s)? Identify their biggest point of pain or challenge - and create a solution. Bootstrap Marketing Tip #3: Everyone Loves a Sale Everyone loves to save money; to feel like they are receiving even more value than what they are spending. To boost revenue, offer a 10% - 20% discount on services or programs, while offering deeper discounts (25% - 50%) on passive income items like products. Action: When designed properly, sales will not sacrifice your profits. Generally speaking, offer minimal or moderate discounts (10% - 20%) on high-cost items like services and programs, while offering deeper discounts (25% - 50%) on passive income items like books, ebooks and other strictly passive income items. Make sure to have the sale for a specific period of time to get people to act quickly to get the ‘deal’ before it ends. Bootstrap Marketing Tip #4: Leverage Free Networking Resources Of all business challenges, leveraging the right resources at the right time is an endless refining process. Action: You never know where your next client will come from. Instead of worrying about being “sales-y” to the people in your personal life, approach connections with people as an opportunity to be of service. Genuinely engage in conversations without being pushy. Find out how you can help them - and be a good listener. Take the “sale” out of it…build the relationship first. Relationships are key to a successful business... Remember, you don’t always have to spend money to make money. There are thousands of ways you can market your services without spending a dime - these are just a few examples. Above all, keep in mind that marketing is a 24/7, 365 days per year part of running your own business. One of the biggest mistakes business owners make is stopping the marketing process once they find clients. The key must be to market continually, even when you have clients, so you don’t find yourself backed into a corner, so to speak. You are as much a marketer, as you are a business owner. You must get over being shy or reluctant about talking about your business. Get off the ‘rollercoaster ride’ and smooth out your revenue stream so it is a consistent incoming flow of ‘green.’ My hope for our time together is that you got value and an idea or two that will help you be even more successful – personally and professionally.

4 Bootstrap Marketing Ideas to Boost Revenue

Jun 14, 2018 00:08:51

Description:

Have you found yourself in a revenue crunch with your business? Generating revenue - fast - is your first priority, but how can you do that when your marketing budget is small or nonexistent. At one time or another, every business owner has stumbled across this same challenge. The challenge being, how do you boost revenue when you have none to spend? Making money doesn’t always take money. These 4 Bootstrapping Marketing Ideas will help you to boost revenue, fast. Bootstrap Marketing Tip #1: Reach Out To Past Clients We’ve all heard the business adage: attaining the business of new clients far outweighs the cost (expenses, time, and effort) of attaining repeat business of existing clients. Reaching out to past clients via phone or email is one of the fastest ways to boost revenue easily. Action: Pick up the phone. Call your past clients and remind them you are here to help them in whatever way you can. You don’t need to hard-sell…just extend a genuine offer of service that you think will benefit them in their business and/or life. Bootstrap Marketing Tip #2: Create a Solution This is the time to get back to the basics: How can you solve your clients’ problem(s)? Identify their biggest point of pain or challenge - and create a solution. Bootstrap Marketing Tip #3: Everyone Loves a Sale Everyone loves to save money; to feel like they are receiving even more value than what they are spending. To boost revenue, offer a 10% - 20% discount on services or programs, while offering deeper discounts (25% - 50%) on passive income items like products. Action: When designed properly, sales will not sacrifice your profits. Generally speaking, offer minimal or moderate discounts (10% - 20%) on high-cost items like services and programs, while offering deeper discounts (25% - 50%) on passive income items like books, ebooks and other strictly passive income items. Make sure to have the sale for a specific period of time to get people to act quickly to get the ‘deal’ before it ends. Bootstrap Marketing Tip #4: Leverage Free Networking Resources Of all business challenges, leveraging the right resources at the right time is an endless refining process.

Dreamer vs Doer: The only thing stopping you from achieving

Jun 5, 2018 00:10:16

Description:

You set goals, yet you don’t achieve them. Time and time again you find yourself stopping midway between the start and finish lines. You start off running out of the gate, enthused and driven to make a difference this time, but each time, something derails you from sticking to the game plan. It’s the classic paradox of Dreamer vs. Doer. As you know, my Excuses Don’t Count; Results Rule (https://www.accountabilitycoach.com/excuses-dont-count-results-rule-book/) philosophy is the basis for my coaching business because excuses are never the real reason you stop short of your goals. No, the real reason is something entirely different. So, what’s the real reason behind all those excuses you make? You are simply not willing to do what it takes to achieve your goals. You just don’t want what you say you want badly enough to actually do what it takes. This is the real reason, and the only thing, stopping you from achieving your goals. Plain and simple. Commitment is what separates the dreamer from the doer. No matter what the nature of the excuse is the only reason you stop short of achieving your goal is because the desire to do whatever it takes to achieve the goal isn’t strong enough. In other words - you don’t want it bad enough to commit to being a doer. If you’re tired of start-stop goal setting, here are some tips for helping you understand the reasons behind not wanting it bad enough: The Payoff Isn’t High Enough Sometimes the payoff (future benefit) of goal achievement isn’t enough to maintain your motivation in the now. That last mile....that last lap…that last squat… another phone call to a prospect… it can be challenging to find the motivation from the payoff - especially when it isn’t high enough. Your payoff should be so enticing that there is no question in your mind that you are sticking to your game plan. No questions, no excuses. You desire that payoff so deeply that you will to do whatever it takes to achieve your goal. Just being willing to do something doesn’t mean you will actually do it. Flip The Payoff/Pain Coin If you simply cannot find a future payoff worth your commitment or high desire, flip the coin and focus on the current pain of remaining where you are. You can bet that at some point you will have to do what you don’t feel like doing in order to get where you want to go. It is in those crucial moments where you must decide if you desire to remain a dreamer and become a doer. Whatever is not motivating you - flip the coin and focus on the contrasting factor. Payoff or Pain? Choose the motivating factor that helps you move from dreamer to doer. Your Current Pain Isn’t Great Enough Perhaps you stop yourself from achieving your goals because your current pain is simply not great enough. The idea of achieving the goal incites your interest, but not your commitment. The end result sounds nice, and if you could wave a magic wand without having to do the work, you gladly would; but you’re not so bad off. Here’s how the internal conversation plays out: I’d like to lose those last 10 lbs., but I feel okay about my body the way it is. I’ll starting worrying about when my pants quick fitting. Sure, I’d like more clients, but that means more calls, more times I have to ask for referrals, more networking, and more marketing - time and money I don’t have. I’m getting by - I guess I’m doing okay. It’s not so bad here. Do you want to be here - in this same place – tomorrow, next week, next month, next year, three years from now? Do you want to continue the start-stop game of self-sabotage? Do you want to negotiate your happiness? Or do you finally want to get on with it? Going from a dreamer to a doer isn’t always cut-and-dry. It’s up to you to become your own best motivator by paying attention to how you’re feeling and leveraging it. If you’re currently motivated by the positive feelings of a future payoff - go with it. On the other hand, if you’re current motivation is the displeasure of a current pain - leverage it to get you moving. It’s the difference between dreaming about a better life and doing something to create the kind of life you truly want and deserve. My hope for our time together is that you got value and an idea or two that will help you be even more successful – personally and professionally.

10 No-Cost, Low-Cost Ways to Market Your Business

Mar 14, 2018 00:09:17

Description:

Great marketing goes beyond traditional marketing strategies. We’re entering a whole new era of online and offline marketing that allow you to market one-to-many for the best results. You don’t need expensive marketing resources to produce great results - here’s where you can get creative and have fun! Here are 10 No-Cost and Low-Cost Ways to Market Your Businesses. Tip #1: Reach Out To Strategic Partners Strategic Partners are a complement (not competition) to your business (as your business is to theirs). Provide an Ideal Client Description and ask if they know someone who is an ideal fit. If they do know someone who would benefit from working with you, ask them to pass along your contact information to the prospect. (Asking for the prospect’s contact information - and contacting them directly - may not always be appropriate. Follow the Strategic Partner’s client privacy policy before contacting the prospect.) Last but not least - return the favor. Tip #2: Develop Joint-Venture Projects Joint-Ventures are gaining popularity as we find (in a challenging economy) it’s not only more effective, but sometimes necessary, to pool resources together. This marketing strategy accomplishes two goals: 1) Gets your business in front of a new market and 2) Allows opportunities for new or creative products or services you may have previously been unable to provide. *Choose Joint-Venture Partners wisely… once a partnership is formed, reputations will inevitably be tied to one another. Tip #3: Build a Community The power of the community deeply serves us, as we continue to recover from economic hardship. Create an in-person or virtual community where like-minded business owners can meet once a week to discuss marketing strategies that work or brainstorm new and innovative ways to attract ideal clients. Use your business brand or personal philosophy as an anchor to the community and you’ll be providing what no one else can. Tip #4: Update Client Success Stories You may have client testimonials, but do you have updated their success stories? Contact clients who have worked with you and ask them to provide their latest success story by specifically tying at least one piece of their success to something they learned or were provided by your product, program, or service. The greater the success story - the greater the value that directly ties back to your business. Promote the updated testimonials and remember to put them on your website. Tip #5: Hold an Open House In-person networking is powerful! Host a lunch, happy hour or networking meeting at your home or office. Invite a small group of key people who can help you spread the word about an upcoming program/event or time-sensitive promotion. (“Key” people are colleagues, partners, friends, associates who have direct connections to your ideal clients.) You may want to consider asking these key people to bring other people who they think could benefit from your product or services to meet you in person. Tip #6: Leverage Your Resources Every aspect of your business from your voice mail to in-person networking should be highlighting reasons why people should be working with you. Share client success stories and current promotions year-round on/in/at: your website | outgoing voicemail message | email footer | social networking accounts (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter) | printed marketing materials | networking events | seminars and live events | business cards | articles | etc. Tip #6: Leverage The Internet While in-person networking remains one of the most powerful ways to connect with prospective clients, the leveraging power of the internet is undeniable. Thanks to the internet it is possible for you to transform your marketing plan from a one-to-one approach to one-to-many. Article marketing and social networking are just two powerful examples of how to market one-to-many online. Tip #8: Blog for Business A blog is an essential part of your website’s ability to attract and keep the attention of your ideal prospects. Although the intention is to provide valuable information, you’re actually doing much more than that: you’re providing a valuable resource that boosts the Know, Like, Trust Factor of your clients - inspiring them to work with you. Take existing content from articles, podcasts, videos, etc. to create your blog posts. Your assistant can do this for you and post them on a regular basis so you don’t have to spend a lot of time doing it yourself. Tip #9: Develop a Cross-Promotion Partnership Ask for help! Contact associates, colleagues and other high-quality contacts and offer to promote one of their upcoming events or program launches. Be sure their offer is a complement, not competition, to something you currently offer. (Offer a referral fee for added incentive!) Only then, ask them to return the favor, if they haven’t already offered. Tip #10: Create Consistent Communication Creating a weekly e-newsletter is one of the easiest methods for creating consistent communication with your sphere of influence. The purpose of weekly communication is to consistently remain in front of your prospects. Provide quality information they will find helpful and useful, while creating an opportunity for your audience to Know-Like-Trust you through short stories, articles of value, interviews with other experts, or mentions of your personal or professional journey. Review these 10 ideas and choose to implement the ones that will have the biggest impact on you achieving your goals in the shortest time possible. Create a game plan and execute it for even greater success. My hope for our time together is that you got value and an idea or two that will help you be even more successful – personally and professionally.

6 Tips for Getting More Clients Without Working Harder

May 3, 2016 00:10:13

Description:

Most entrepreneurs experience a critical stage in their business where they need to consistently build their client base, yet they don’t have the time or resources to devote to serving more clients. So how do you get more clients without working harder? Learn how with these 6 tips. Tip #1: Create Information Resources Regardless of your industry, your business has a powerful point of leverage that can be used to find and keep more clients: information. Create free and low-cost channels through which you can introduce yourself and your business - without significant time or effort investment on the backend. This is the “Create-It-And-Leave-It” method that creates not only more avenues for prospects to learn about you, but also expands your market reach and/or revenue. Tip #2: Stand Out To get the attention of ideal prospects, you must stand out from the crowd. Everyday information isn’t unique information. You have to show ideal prospects what makes you different from others in your industry. Be willing to share personal and professional experiences - and the lessons you’ve learned from those experiences. You have a unique perspective that separates you from the crowd. When you begin sharing what makes you different, it becomes easier for your ideal prospect to identify you from the rest of the crowd. Tip #3: Create Low-Touch, High Volume Programs A common mistake among many entrepreneurs is spending too much time on non-paying prospects and low-end clients. This is you if: you find your schedule is maxed out, and you’re not creating enough revenue. The solution is to create a way to reach low-end clients that does not require a direct exchange of your time or effort. Create free and low-end solutions like the ones mentioned in Tip #1 where you can reach a larger pool of prospects and paying clients without having to work harder. Tip 4: Create High-Touch, Low Volume Programs Your unique expertise and personal attention are your greatest points of leverage in your business. Some clients don’t want a home-study program, they want personal attention. The unique combination of your personal and professional experiences allows you to bring a unique perspective (and information) to your clients. Leverage it to create a high-end solution that provides individual or small group attention to top-level clients. Tip 5: Honor Your Core Values If you’re working too hard and still not generating the revenue you desire, you may not be honoring your core values. These core values, when sacrificed, create disharmony, frustration, and struggle in your life and business. Honor your core values and you create flow, ease and success. Know your core values and adjust your business model accordingly. The key here is to learn from other successful entrepreneurs, but put your own spin on it. When you honor your core values you’ll find a magic formula that allows you to work the way it works for you. In turn, your clients will be better served. Go to http://www.accountabilitycoach.com/values-clarification/ and download a complimentary values clarification exercise to help you get clear on exactly what your values really are. Tip 6: Follow Your Inspiration Remember, getting more clients doesn’t necessarily mean working harder. When you’re designing ways for more clients to work with you - follow your inspiration. Follow what feels good - what excites you. Be innovative - creative. Keep in mind: Just because it hasn’t been done before doesn’t mean that it can’t be done.

3 Steps to Writing an Effective Business Plan that Inspires

Oct 21, 2015 00:10:22

Description:

Today we are going to talk about 3 Steps to Writing an Effective Business Plan that Inspires Action. The idea of starting your own business can be exciting and inspiring, but for most small business owners, writing an effective business plan is not considered an exciting part of starting the process; therefore, many choose not to create one. Traditional business plans can be very dry and uninteresting, so you are about to learn how to create an effective business plan that not only gets you excited, it will inspire you, and others, to take action. The length and details of an effective business plan will be determined by the type of business you’re creating. The key is to create not just another business plan, but an effective business plan that inspires you, and others, to take action. First, let’s get clear on the essentials components of an effective business plan: -Executive Summary -Market Analysis -Company Description -Organization & Management -Marketing & Sales Management -Service or Product Line -Funding Request -Financials -Appendix Part 1: Executive Summary The executive summary is the most important component of an effective business plan because it will be the first thing the reader sees. This is where you’ve got to grab the reader’s attention and inspire them to support your vision through your mission statement. Provide a history of your company, its current standing, and future vision. Part 2: Market Analysis This is your opportunity to shine and highlight your knowledge of the industry. This will also be where you will identify your target market and what you know about them. Part 3: Company Description Keeping it brief, describe how all the elements of your business fit together. Be sure to clarify the marketplace need and how your company is poised for a competitive edge. Part 4: Operation and Management In this component, include your business’s organizational structure, details about ownership, and profiles of your management team. A key factor in this section is to clarify what kind of incentives and bonuses will be provided to keep your staff motivated and employed. Part 5: Marketing and Sales Management Use this section to share your vision for getting and growing your customer/client base - as they will be the lifeblood of your business. Part 6: Service or Product Line Here is where you will want to focus on the distinct advantage your product or service has over the competition. Be sure to carry your passionate message throughout this section and back it up with concrete data. Part 7: Funding Request A vital component to an effective business plan. Clearly define the amount of funding you are requesting and long-range strategies that could impact your ability to repay the funding. Outline best and worst case scenarios and back up your request with financial statements. Part 8: Financials This is where you will include financial documents to justify your statements in previous components. Part 9: Appendix This is where all additional documents will be placed for the reader on an as-needed basis. Now that we’ve clarified the essential components of an effective business plan, let’s discuss how to write an effective business plan that inspires action: 3 ACTION STEPS: 1. Create a compelling story 2. Voice your passion and inspiration 3. Be confident Create a Compelling Story Writing a compelling story will be the factor to inspire action; this is what you will want to focus on in the executive summary. Obviously, the purpose is to inspire venture capitalists or a bank to fund your vision, but you can also use it to inspire your own motivation to drive the success of the business. Be as heartfelt and passionate as you can when sharing your mission statement and the vision of the company, because it will be that sincerity and passion that will create empathy from the reader. Whatever your vision for the future of the company, take it one step further and think bigger. Voice Your Passion and Inspiration Remember, the point is to create an effective business plan that inspires action whether it’s just for your own use or to be read by venture capitalists. The reader will only be as compelled as your words, so make each word count BIG in every component. Be Confident How can anyone believe in you if you don’t believe in yourself? Do not allow one word of doubt or insecurity to come through in your business plan. You have got to exude confident, knowledge, and strategic thinking throughout your business plan. The bottom line is, if you don’t have a business plan, you need a current one. And you need one that you actually implement and not one that you create and file somewhere to maybe review it one year from now. Come up with a game plan that you can execute so you have a business plan that actually gets implemented and gets you the results you want.

3 Reasons Why Beck-and-Call is NOT a Better Business

May 26, 2015 00:09:29

Description:

Today we are going to talk about 3 Reasons Why Beck-and-Call is Not Better Business and working my appointment only is better client service. There is a huge misconception that the best business is a business that is at the beck-and-call of its clients. The truth is that the best business is a business that effectively sets boundaries, and manages and exceeds client expectations in order to maintain a productive and effective flow. If you are constantly juggling clients, answering the phone at all hours of the day, interrupting your personal time to fit in business, and feeling stressed, here are 3 Reasons Why Beck-and-Call is Not Better Business. 1. It’s Impossible to Manage Client Expectations Without structure and a solid foundation of rules and regulations, managing client expectations is impossible. They will expect the world, and will be sorely disappointed, when you do not deliver it. In other words, without boundaries, it’s quite possible they will expect everything. You may find yourself, at one point or another, running yourself ragged juggling multiple clients, all of whom expect your undivided attention. When you find it impossible to meet the expectations of your clients, your business will suffer in more than one way. You’ll be exhausted and clients will be left dissatisfied. No one wins. Client expectations can only be effectively managed by outlining specific deliverables from the very beginning. If this isn’t possible (if the working relationship has already begun), then establish and communicate boundaries to clients as soon as you can. 2. It’s Impossible to Effectively Manage Your Business Imagine how effectively you can manage your business when you’re struggling to meet multiple demands of multiple clients? Instead of having time to focus on building your business, you’ll be struggling just to maintain it. That’s no way to run your business. It’s much like multi-tasking - it doesn’t work well. If you’re consumed with meeting the high demands of unbridled client expectations, your business isn’t running with the greatest effectiveness or efficiency. You’re spending too much time on an overly demanding client, instead of focusing on other areas of your business that also require your attention in order to be successful. You know you’re not effectively running your business (it’s actually running you) when: • You become exhausted and resentful of demanding clients (and eventually become resentful of your business, which detracts from your path of success). • Highly demanding clients without a ceiling on expectations are impossible to please (and miserable to work with). • Clients with irrational or unreasonable expectations never provide glowing business reviews (they’re often negative and damage your professional reputation). • You must have time to focus on other areas of your business other than client service (like finding and signing on prospective clients). • Instead of creating a straight path to success, you’re running yourself (and your business) into the ground. 3. It’s Impossible to Maintain Peace and Balance If you’re constantly juggling unreasonable client expectations, it will be impossible to maintain any sense of peace and balance in your personal or professional life. You may feel like you’re sacrificing your personal life for your business, or the important professional tasks that cannot be completed because you’re catering to an overly-demanding client. At some point, hopefully before total burnout, you learn to recognize what’s really important: sometimes saying no is the best thing. It’s vital to learn to say no to over-delivering on services clients have not paid for; no to things you do more out of obligation rather than joy; no to things that consume your schedule leaving little or no down time or freedom to do what you truly want and love to do. When you’ve overextended yourself too far the only way to regain a sense of peace and balance is to say no. (You can always say ‘yes’ later.) You’re not alone. It’s common for business owners to find difficulty in saying no, especially to their clients. Pay special attention if you see this habit playing out in multiple areas of your life, because it may be a symptom of a much bigger problem: seeking approval. Clients are necessary, but you do not have to sell your soul to win their business. You do not have to be at their beck-and-call to earn their approval. You are a professional, providing a valuable service to a valuable client - that is the focus and the extent of your relationship - and it’s perfect just that way. There is no one’s approval to meet. You only need focus on delivering the best service and what you promised to deliver. Establish client boundaries that support your personal definition of peace and balance. What works best for you? However that looks, design client boundaries to support your personal and professional life - and the success of your business. Deliver what the client agreed to pay for - no more, no less - and strive to deliver your absolute best each and every time - that’s good business practice.

Are you a victim or a master?

There is one solid rule you can count on: successful entrepreneurs never think of themselves as victims. This is the major factor that separates the wealthy from the poor. The wealthy understand they are 100% responsible for their reality, making them masters of accountability. When there is no one to blame, there is no finger to point, and therefore, no crime. With no crime, there cannot be a victim. Period. There is something magical that happens when you take 100% responsibility for your own success – and that is a feeling of freedom.

4 Steps to Conquer Fears and Start Living Life On Your Terms

Apr 9, 2015 00:14:11

Description:

Today we are going to talk about 4 Steps to Conquer Fears and Start Living Life On Your Terms. We’ve all been afraid to try something new at one time or another. Why is that? And it seems as we age, our fear controls more and more of our willingness to try something new. We prefer to forego a new experience because we want to avoid whatever bad thing we think could happen. Or maybe the anxiety is just too stressful for us to even contemplate facing our fears. Whatever the reason, we justify that trying something new is not worth the risk. Most of us learn to live within our comfort zone by default because we base our daily decisions on whether or not they cause feelings of anxiety. Every action we decide to take is based on whether it lands inside or outside our comfort zone. As humans, most of us have the tendency to remain within the boundaries of our comfort zone, to avoid situations that cause feelings of anxiety and fear. And although it may feel like we are in control, we are actually out of control. When we live our life inside our comfort zone, we allow our fears to control our daily life. When we remain inside the boundaries of our comfort zone, we essentially stop growing and stop learning. Sure, you can choose to live the rest of your life in your comfort zone, but if you are unhappy with any aspect of your life, know that it will not change until you step outside your comfort zone. Your comfort zone is nothing more than an imaginary “safe zone.” This “safe zone” is nothing more than an imaginary area in which the mind has predetermined strategies to deal with circumstances that occur within those boundaries. In other words, your mind craves a controlled environment where it has a pre-determined set of actions to deal with a certain set of situations. When it has past experiences to refer to, it can recall the details of a past success and apply the success strategies to a present experience. This set of past successes is what creates a “safe zone.” The mind knows exactly what to do when faced with those situations without anxiety or fear. However, step outside your comfort zone and the mind suddenly has no past experience to calculate a strategy from - this is what causes feelings of anxiety and fear. Feelings of anxiety are often assumed as a “bad” sign, but that is not necessarily true. Obviously if you are faced with a life-threatening situation, then feelings of anxiety would be rational; but when faced with a non-life-threatening situation - exaggerated anxiety is not a rational response. This is not to say that the mind is not serving a very valuable reaction, but left uncontrolled, the mind will create irrational anxiety. Your mind craves a controlled environment where it knows exactly what to do. When faced with a new situation, the mind doesn’t have past experience to refer to and will create imaginary and often exaggerated outcomes. This exaggeration can cause such anxiety that we never want to try something new because of the stress. We choose to remain in our comfort zones, because our fear outweighs our desire for new experiences. While it’s natural to feel some anxiety or nervousness before trying something new, it is not natural to let fear control your life experiences. Life is meant to be lived - not passed by. So how do you overcome the anxiety of trying something new? You simply ask yourself if the feelings of anxiety are rational. This isn’t to say that you won’t face situations which present real dangers, but what if some or all of your anxiety was based on false assumptions imagined by your mind - would you be more inclined to try something new? What if you could have new experiences without getting hurt or experiencing pain - would you do it? Now ask yourself how you don’t know it wouldn’t happen exactly that way? I’m very afraid of heights and yet I wanted to try hang gliding. My husband thought I was out of my mind, but he didn’t say a word to me as I was strapped into the hang glider with the expert next to me. We soared with a hawk above us and it was an experience that increased my confidence to do many other things that initially scared me. You are the one who determines the outcome of your experiences. If you know your experience will be completely positive - there is nothing stopping you from doing it. Here are four practical steps you can take to conquer fear and start living life on your terms: 1. Analyze the rational possible outcomes 2. The past doesn’t equal the future 3. Visualize positive outcomes 4. Just do it! Don't wait to start conquering your fear - start today. Make a list of things you are afraid to do and set a time frame when you want to have them all accomplished. Maybe it's calling someone you would really like to do business with, but have too intimidated to ask. Or perhaps you are afraid of heights, but have always wanted to skydive. Whatever it is you would like to accomplish, but have been afraid of, write them down on your list. Next to each item write the positive results that will come from doing what you are afraid of doing. For the client you've been too afraid to call, you generate a lot of revenue (How much revenue specifically and for how long? Not to mention referrals that can result of this new client.) . For skydiving it will be conquering your fear of heights and increasing your confidence. Once you have all of your tasks written down, prioritize them based on how they will positively impact your life. Place the item with the biggest impact at the top of the list and work your way down. Start at the top of the list and work your way down until you have them all accomplished. Anytime you feel the fear and are considering passing up a great opportunity to spread your wings, take yourself back to your childhood. Remember that you learned how to walk with nothing more than instinct and how to ride a bike with practice. Trying something new allows you to build your confidence and wonder what you were so afraid of to start with. If you do get value from these Podcasts, please take a minute to leave me a short review.

4 Steps to Conquer Fears and Start Living Life On Your Terms

Apr 8, 2015 00:14:11

Description:

Today we are going to talk about 4 Steps to Conquer Fears and Start Living Life On Your Terms. We’ve all been afraid to try something new at one time or another. Why is that? And it seems as we age, our fear controls more and more of our willingness to try something new. We prefer to forego a new experience because we want to avoid whatever bad thing we think could happen. Or maybe the anxiety is just too stressful for us to even contemplate facing our fears. Whatever the reason, we justify that trying something new is not worth the risk. Most of us learn to live within our comfort zone by default because we base our daily decisions on whether or not they cause feelings of anxiety. Every action we decide to take is based on whether it lands inside or outside our comfort zone. As humans, most of us have the tendency to remain within the boundaries of our comfort zone, to avoid situations that cause feelings of anxiety and fear. And although it may feel like we are in control, we are actually out of control. When we live our life inside our comfort zone, we allow our fears to control our daily life. When we remain inside the boundaries of our comfort zone, we essentially stop growing and stop learning. Sure, you can choose to live the rest of your life in your comfort zone, but if you are unhappy with any aspect of your life, know that it will not change until you step outside your comfort zone. Your comfort zone is nothing more than an imaginary “safe zone.” This “safe zone” is nothing more than an imaginary area in which the mind has predetermined strategies to deal with circumstances that occur within those boundaries. In other words, your mind craves a controlled environment where it has a pre-determined set of actions to deal with a certain set of situations. When it has past experiences to refer to, it can recall the details of a past success and apply the success strategies to a present experience. This set of past successes is what creates a “safe zone.” The mind knows exactly what to do when faced with those situations without anxiety or fear. However, step outside your comfort zone and the mind suddenly has no past experience to calculate a strategy from - this is what causes feelings of anxiety and fear. Feelings of anxiety are often assumed as a “bad” sign, but that is not necessarily true. Obviously if you are faced with a life-threatening situation, then feelings of anxiety would be rational; but when faced with a non-life-threatening situation - exaggerated anxiety is not a rational response. This is not to say that the mind is not serving a very valuable reaction, but left uncontrolled, the mind will create irrational anxiety. Your mind craves a controlled environment where it knows exactly what to do. When faced with a new situation, the mind doesn’t have past experience to refer to and will create imaginary and often exaggerated outcomes. This exaggeration can cause such anxiety that we never want to try something new because of the stress. We choose to remain in our comfort zones, because our fear outweighs our desire for new experiences. While it’s natural to feel some anxiety or nervousness before trying something new, it is not natural to let fear control your life experiences. Life is meant to be lived - not passed by. So how do you overcome the anxiety of trying something new? You simply ask yourself if the feelings of anxiety are rational. This isn’t to say that you won’t face situations which present real dangers, but what if some or all of your anxiety was based on false assumptions imagined by your mind - would you be more inclined to try something new? What if you could have new experiences without getting hurt or experiencing pain - would you do it? Now ask yourself how you don’t know it wouldn’t happen exactly that way? I’m very afraid of heights and yet I wanted to try hang gliding. My husband thought I was out of my mind, but he didn’t say a word to me as I was strapped into the hang glider with the expert next to me. We soared with a hawk above us and it was an experience that increased my confidence to do many other things that initially scared me. You are the one who determines the outcome of your experiences. If you know your experience will be completely positive - there is nothing stopping you from doing it. Here are four practical steps you can take to conquer fear and start living life on your terms: 1. Analyze the rational possible outcomes 2. The past doesn’t equal the future 3. Visualize positive outcomes 4. Just do it! Don't wait to start conquering your fear - start today. Make a list of things you are afraid to do and set a time frame when you want to have them all accomplished. Maybe it's calling someone you would really like to do business with, but have too intimidated to ask. Or perhaps you are afraid of heights, but have always wanted to skydive. Whatever it is you would like to accomplish, but have been afraid of, write them down on your list. Next to each item write the positive results that will come from doing what you are afraid of doing. For the client you've been too afraid to call, you generate a lot of revenue (How much revenue specifically and for how long? Not to mention referrals that can result of this new client.) . For skydiving it will be conquering your fear of heights and increasing your confidence. Once you have all of your tasks written down, prioritize them based on how they will positively impact your life. Place the item with the biggest impact at the top of the list and work your way down. Start at the top of the list and work your way down until you have them all accomplished. Anytime you feel the fear and are considering passing up a great opportunity to spread your wings, take yourself back to your childhood. Remember that you learned how to walk with nothing more than instinct and how to ride a bike with practice. Trying something new allows you to build your confidence and wonder what you were so afraid of to start with. If you do get value from these Podcasts, please take a minute to leave me a short review.

You are Only as Successful As Your Beliefs

Aug 13, 2014 00:02:47

Description:

Are your beliefs supporting your success? The most definitive way to know whether your beliefs are leading to success or disaster is to examine what you say to yourself. Do you typically think to yourself that you will be successful or that there’s no use in trying, because it will never work. The nature of your belief system – positive or negative – will be the single greatest determining factor in your success, so you had better start thinking success. When the negative talk starts swirling in your head, just cancel it out – sweep it out – delete it. Focus on the positive (and what you really want) and remember that your success is completely dependent upon you and you alone. Although you can allow talk from those around you to negatively affect your progress, no one can prevent you from achieving your goals. The determining factor is always and only your ability to hold true to your belief in yourself. There is always a way, so take a “no-excuses” approach to achieving your goals and you will achieve them. The way isn’t necessarily apparent, and if you feel like you’ve hit a roadblock - get creative. You’d be surprised how you can come up with some creative and effective solutions when you think outside the box. The idea is to maintain an element of creativity when coming up with solutions, so you are constantly expanding your belief system.

Effective Goal Setting Guidelines

Jan 12, 2014 00:02:53

Description:

When you think of goal setting, we can start with a school of thought that says every goal a person sets should be a S.M.A.R.T. goal. SMART stands for Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Tangible or Timely. Your goals must have a specific target date for achievement, including a month, day, and year. It is surprising to me how many people don’t set a target date for goals. Some might say a year but most don’t set a month, day and a year for their desired goal achievement. • I take issue with the words realistic and attainable. I believe goals should be “stretch goals,” goals that are achievable, and also require that the person stretch their limits. This extra push provides inspiration and motivation. Even if you fall short of achieving a stretch goal, you’ve still most likely exceeded your “realistic” goal. • The word attainable bothers me for similar reasons. Obviously, you want your goal to be within reach, but that same “stretch” should be added for additional motivation and inspiration. • The emotional element to goal achievement is very important. Think about how you would think and feel once you have achieved the goal. This adds the emotional element that helps inspire you even more. In theory, working toward your goals is not complicated. Most days, most of the things you do, should move you toward your goals.

4 Ways to Increase the Productivity of your Business

Jan 12, 2014 00:09:19

Description:

Today we are going to talk about 4 Ways to Increase the Productivity of your Business. Every business owner is on the lookout for effective ways to increase productivity for their team. The reality is that business owners and employees are ineffective and unproductive probably more often than they think. The key is to reduce lost hours and wasted manpower. Here are some ways you can take an active approach to increasing the efficiency and productivity of your business. Productivity Tip #1: Lead by example. If you are a business owner, you must absolutely be held to the highest standard. If you work directly with an assistant or team of employees, you should always lead by example. If you2019re a habitual procrastinator or have trouble focusing on productivity, you would serve yourself and your business well by hiring an accountability coach. An accountability coach will show you several effective ways to increase productivity in your business - and hold you accountable for your actions, as well as your results. When you are asked to explain to your accountability coach why you didn2019t achieve the task at hand because you chose to watch T.V, it won2019t feel comfortable to be put on the hot seat by your coach. Productivity Tip #2: Work each day with a To-Do List. Creating a to-do list is one of the most efficient ways to increase the productivity of your business. Crafting a detailed to-do list for you and your team will help them comprehend exactly what is expected of them each day. This will motivate them to complete the tasks they2019ve been given with the greatest efficiency and effectiveness. If your assistant or team is known for procrastinating, this is an especially effective tool for encouraging them to stay focused. When you don2019t leave wiggle room for lollygagging, you2019ll have one heck of a productive team. Customize each To-Do List to each team member, so that each team member can be held directly accountable for their actions. Productivity Tip #3: Delegate appropriately. If you cannot delegate, you cannot increase productivity. Period. The key to increasing productivity is realizing where your time is best spent. Where your assistant2019s or team2019s time is spent matters as well. When you can delegate the right tasks to the right person, your business will operate without a hitch. However, hang on to tasks you should have let go of long ago, and you stagnate your success. When you need a task complete, look to the personality and experience of your team in order to decide which employee would be best suited for the task. Productivity Tip #4: Build a bigger team! It2019s a simple concept, really. The more team members you have producing, the more work you2019ll generate, and hopefully, the more money you2019ll bring in for your business. Hiring additional team members is one of the most effective ways to increase productivity for your business. For lower priority or common tasks you should be able to find someone at a reasonable rate. However, for senior or high-priority positions, you2019ll obviously need to hire experienced professionals. As a basic productivity rule, you should NEVER be answering your phone, doing bookkeeping or sending invoices. You should be spending your time devoted to driving income, while your team members tend to the basic tasks. As you can see, there are several ways to increase the productivity of your business. These tips are simple, yet effective ways of instilling the principles of productivity in your team. Action Step: What will your next steps be so you can increase productivity and achieve your goals? Create your game plan to help put you in the highest probability position for goal achievement. Take these four tips and turn them into four separate weekly goals to be achieved within the next month. Write down specific actions you can take to achieve each weekly goal and put them in your calendar so they cannot be ignored.

Eliminate or at least Reduce Time Wasters and Distractions

Apr 15, 2013 00:02:28

Description:

Eliminate or at least Reduce Time Wasters and Distractions in Your Life – Anyone who has a demanding career or runs their own business has to practice excellent time management, effective delegation and learning to say the word, “No.” It’s just not possible to maintain the simple life while achieving a high level of success. And with today’s technology, it’s harder to hide when you need a break. Your email inbox is dinging, your cell phone is ringing and your spouse is trying to call you on the car phone because your cell line is busy. It is at this point that you have to filter the input so you can begin to regain control over your life. As good as you think you may be with your time management; there are always “time-wasters” that can be eliminated from your daily life. The goal is to slow down and be focused on the highest pay-off activities that will produce the results you desire in the timeframe you want – personally and professionally. The goal is not to figure out how to move faster. It’s impossible to create more hours in the day and it’s simply not healthy to run at full tilt constantly. Eliminate the time-wasters in your life to improve your quality of life and your overall success. Aim for what you want each and every day!

3 Tips for Building a Team that Builds Success

Jan 13, 2013 00:11:16

Description:

Today we are going to talk about 3 Tips for Building a Team that Builds Success. If you want to learn how to build a team that builds success, you will want to take a look at the big picture. Take any successful entrepreneur, and behind him or her, you will find a well-suited team of supportive, knowledgeable, and energetic members all dedicated to increasing the success of the business. Tip #1 for building a team that builds success. If you2019re trying to understand how to build a team that builds success, you should first pinpoint the mission of the business. Only when you have a clear understanding, as a leader, of the mission of the business, can you build the right team. When you can clearly identify and emotionally connect with the mission, you are able to identify the right people who are best-suited to support the success of the business. Depending on the mission statement of the business, you may need to focus on building a team of creatives, analytics, intellectuals, or spiritualists. For example, a PR (public relations) firm wouldn2019t necessarily build a team of spiritualists; that personality would be better suited for a business that is motivational or inspirationally based. A PR firm would more likely hire creatives and intellectuals. Another example of personality matching would be an accounting firm; they would look to building a team of analytical members, not necessarily creatives or spirituals. Always start with the mission of the business, and then build your team. Let2019s say you need an assistant to travel with you to help you with live events such as seminars and guest appearances. An important personality factor would be to ensure the team member has the following qualities: 2022 reliable and punctual 2022 great organizer 2022 keeps you calm under times of stress 2022 takes care of the small details so you don2019t have to 2022 loves traveling 2022 love meeting new people 2022 has a personable, magnetic personality Tip #2 for building a team that builds success. Think about the areas of your business where you struggle and could obviously use the help. Make a list of those tasks you would like or need help with and then look for those strengths in potential candidates. Additionally, take into consideration the kind of personality you tend to gravitate towards. Do you enjoy being with people who are: Funny? Serious? Energetic? Go-Getter? Talker or silent-type? Make a list of the kind of personality you tend to enjoy the most and then look for those additional traits in candidates. Unfortunately, interviews are not the ideal situations to explore personality traits, since potential candidate are generally nervous, but you could ask them to complete a personality profile as part of the application process. There are several sources for free or low-cost personality screens, but the Myers-Briggs Personality (MBP) Test is best suited for career related insight. Are you worried about how a potential candidate will fit in with an existing team? While this is a viable consideration, it should not make or break your decision. You, better than anyone, knows what your business needs to succeed. The bottom line is that your team needs to learn how to work as team - and you should support them in achieving that goal. If by chance you have a team with conflict, do not let it go unnoticed. Address it immediately by listening to the concerns of the team and then offering constructive solutions. Tip #3 for building a team that builds success. When building a team that builds success, you should have a good understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of each individual member - including your own! You may have to do some experimenting to find the right match, but if you pay attention, you will build a team that supports you - and each other. For example, say a team member is great behind the scenes, but chokes in public settings. They may be better suited in the office, responsible for administrative tasks such as bookkeeping, emails and answering phones. At the same time, if you have a team member that gets bored easily, appoint them to be your assistant. Take them with you on the road, give them a variety of duties that change from day to day, and put them on the spot with last minute errands. That will keep them on their toes, and their boredom at bay. You2019ll find that your business runs far more efficiently when you have properly assigned your team members to tasks that suit their personality and feed their interests. Boredom and complacency is one of the fastest ways to kill the success of your business. As a business owner, it is important to be observant of the strengths and weaknesses of your team. This is why it2019s vital to keep a running strength and weakness list for you and your team. Revisit the list at least once per quarter and update it as needed. Consistently refine processes and procedures that employ the strengths of you and your team, while minimizing the weaknesses. The more consistent you are in this endeavor the more efficient and effective your business will grow.

Become a Master of Change Let’s talk about 4 tips on how YOU can become a master of change and put yourself in a higher probability position to achieve your goals. 1. Inaction and Resistance Carries Bigger Consequences - Learn to be open to creating new and exciting adventures that change will bring. 2. Focus on the Desired End Result - Focus on where you want to be when the change is complete. The mind has an uncanny way of being a goal-achieving machine and will create your reality based on the thoughts you are focused upon. 3.

Description:

Become a Master of Change Let’s talk about 4 tips on how YOU can become a master of change and put yourself in a higher probability position to achieve your goals. 1. Inaction and Resistance Carries Bigger Consequences - Learn to be open to creating new and exciting adventures that change will bring. 2. Focus on the Desired End Result - Focus on where you want to be when the change is complete. The mind has an uncanny way of being a goal-achieving machine and will create your reality based on the thoughts you are focused upon. 3. Rationalize Your Fear - Fear is a natural response, but try to identify what it is you are afraid of. Fear is usually the result of our mind creating hypothetical dramas that have no base in reality. 4. Break it into Manageable Pieces - For major changes, break it down into smaller manageable pieces. It's much easier to identify a solution when you can apply a strategy to deal with each step. Apply these 4 tips to help you become a master of change.

“I Don’t Have Enough People To See”

Aug 27, 2012 00:02:39

Description:

Have you ever thought or said to yourself, “I Don’t Have Enough People To See”…because if I did, I would be making a lot more money? When I have people say this to me, I ask them to do a simple exercise. For example, when Joe said to me, I don’t have enough people to see. I asked him to make a list of everyone he has met or knows. This means everyone from your dentist to your doctor, to your ophthalmologist, to parents you have met through your children being in school, church members – EVERYONE. He did that one night and came back with just under 300 names. Now, I am not saying this is common but the point is that you know people that you just haven’t thought about knowing that you could see. Sit down and make your list and see how many people you know who could refer you to other people that you could potentially do business with. I think you will be amazed at how many end up on your list.

Today we are going to talk about 3 Tough Situations and How to Deal with Them and the Benefits of Telling the Truth. The importance of telling the truth in business is paramount. Clients pay for your products or services because they are looking for significant and necessary results in their lives, not to waste their money on empty promises. In business, it2019s important to keep in mind that clients are depending on you, and that starts with telling the truth in business. You may be in business to make money, but your clients buy to get results your products and services provide. Listen in on three tough situations you2019re likely to encounter in business and how to best deal with them. I cannot stress the importance of telling the truth in business enough.

Are You a Procrastinator? Stop it!

Apr 28, 2012 00:02:18

Description:

There’s nothing wrong with taking a break, but you know procrastination when you see it. Here’s how to recognize the signs of procrastination and stop the cycle of excuses and delays so you can achieve more success in life and in business. If you have ever been a leader, manager, or business owner with employees, you’ve experienced what it’s like delegating an important task under deadline. From experience, you’ve probably learned who you can trust to complete the task well, and on time, when others fall short. Have you ever delegated a time-sensitive task to an employee only to find them making excuses, waiting until the last minute, or wasting time when they should be working on your project? It probably got you fired up. So here’s a question for you: If you don’t tolerate procrastination from others, why would you ever tolerate procrastination from yourself?

The Art of Delegation for Business Owners

Apr 28, 2012 00:09:15

Description:

Today we are going to talk about The Art of Delegation for Business Owners. Delegation for business owners is a must-do for success! When you can hand over your administrative tasks and projects off to an able assistant or employee, you can focus on more important tasks that only you can do to grow your business and increase revenue. The art of delegation is an essential part of establishing a growing business. Delegation allows you to eliminate the low-priority tasks so you can free up time to focus on the high-payoff producing tasks. Clearly, this can allow you to focus on increasing your revenue, and it can also free up time to center your energy towards expanding your business. When your business continues to grow, eventually reaching another plateau, you may find it necessary to hire more assistants or outsource more tasks. Implementing the art of delegation to your current business model can lead to an increase in business and an immense decrease in stress for you. Delegation for business owners is the single most efficient way to run your business without having to spread yourself thin. You don2019t need to hire an army worth of employees or contractors, just delegate the tasks that are hindering you from increasing your revenue! Do what you do best and let someone else do the rest.

Persistence: The Commonality of Champions

Mar 14, 2012 00:02:32

Description:

If you look upon history, you’ll find that the notable quality that exists in all champions is persistence. The path you walk will not always be easy, but you have to continue to persist. Even in the face of seemingly overwhelming odds, you must keep putting one foot in front of the other, because there are lessons to be learned along the way, all of which will support your success. Whenever you confront an obstacle or roadblock, step back and emotionally detach yourself from the situation. It’s much easier to think of ways to go around, under or over the obstacle when you let go of the frustration. This may take some practice, but try this exercise: imagine a friend is the one facing the challenge(s), and you are simply providing ideas how to help them overcome the obstacle. When you are solution-oriented, you focus on the possibilities, not the impossibilities. In truth, nothing is impossible, and change is inevitable. Knowing this, you can take persistent steps in faith, with the wisdom that nothing stays the same, and at some time in the future your current obstacles will dissolve.

Persistence: The Commonality of Champions

Mar 13, 2012 00:02:32

Description:

If you look upon history, you’ll find that the notable quality that exists in all champions is persistence. The path you walk will not always be easy, but you have to continue to persist. Even in the face of seemingly overwhelming odds, you must keep putting one foot in front of the other, because there are lessons to be learned along the way, all of which will support your success. Whenever you confront an obstacle or roadblock, step back and emotionally detach yourself from the situation. It’s much easier to think of ways to go around, under or over the obstacle when you let go of the frustration. This may take some practice, but try this exercise: imagine a friend is the one facing the challenge(s), and you are simply providing ideas how to help them overcome the obstacle. When you are solution-oriented, you focus on the possibilities, not the impossibilities. In truth, nothing is impossible, and change is inevitable. Knowing this, you can take persistent steps in faith, with the wisdom that nothing stays the same, and at some time in the future your current obstacles will dissolve.

How badly do you want to achieve your goals and dreams?

Description:

How badly do you want to achieve your goals and dreams? The only thing that separates you from your future and your current reality is choice. Do you choose the life you currently have, or do you choose the life you want to have? The choice is yours. Your dreams are real and your goals are possible. Commit to them and they will become a reality. Start this moment by deciding what it is you really want in your life. Write it on a piece of paper (remember to include exact dates of when you want to achieve your goals by – that is month, day and year) and know it is possible, if you really want it. Begin making only those choices that support your goals and take action! Nothing will come of nothing - you must take action to get from where you are to where you want to be. Keep in mind that what got you to where you are today probably isn’t going to get you to where you want to be so you will probably have to make new and different choices going forward.

4 Tips for Building Self Esteem for Business Success

Feb 8, 2012 00:07:02

Description:

Today we are going to talk about 4 Tips for Building Self Esteem for Business Success. If you’ve struggled with self-esteem throughout your life, it may be a bit challenging to start creating confidence now in your business, but I assure you, even you can build self-esteem and succeed in your endeavors! Let’s talk about 4 Tips for Building Self Esteem for Business Success. You can improve self-esteem in business by maintaining a professional appearance, working on the way you present yourself and gaining experience. Chances are, you may feel a little nervous each time you make a sales pitch or meet a potential client in person for the first time. The important thing to remember is not to let the nervousness stop you. Just for the moment, forget about the sale and focus on your talent. When you can remember that you can do it, and probably do it well, the anxiety of “making the sale” will not even be in your mind. With time and experience, your confidence and self-esteem will continue to grow until speaking with clients feels as natural as a conversation with a friend. The sooner you can embrace your confidence, the sooner your self-esteem will carry you to business success. My hope for our time together is that you got value and an idea or two that will help you be even more successful – personally and professionally.

Do You Truly Want to Achieve Your Goals Badly Enough?

Dec 19, 2011 00:02:37

Description:

What’s the difference between someone who achieves their goals and someone who just dreams about them? The starting point is always their level of desire, and how bad they want it. Try to remember a time when you heard how someone defied all the odds and achieved something that seemed impossible. You might have been stunned by their sheer determination to achieve their goal. What gave them their determination? They wanted it bad enough. Their desire led to a choice which set their desire into motion. They learned to make only those choices that supported their goals. And if they can do it, you can too. Achieving your goals doesn’t have anything to do with where you’ve been; you can always get to where you want to be - if you want it bad enough. Try this exercise. Think about something you really want. Maybe you want a better job, more money, or to be more fit. Whatever it is, make sure it’s something you really want. Close your eyes for a moment and imagine how you would feel already having achieved it. Feels great, doesn’t it? You have to want your dream life bad enough to make a choice. That choice is to live a life that makes you feel great.

Is your Business Really Focused on Client Satisfaction?

Dec 19, 2011 00:07:10

Description:

Today we are going to talk about Is your Business Really Focused on Client Satisfaction? Is your Business Really Client-Centered? There are many factors that go into building a successful business. However, one of the most important, yet one of the most ignored, is focusing on creating client satisfaction. Create a client-centered business and you’ll ensure that your business gets only rave reviews, while setting it up for success. Are your clients’ interests at the core of your business? If not, your business will remain at a standstill for years to come. Many business owners have the perception that they run a client-centered business, but in reality, they have gotten into a bad habit of putting their own personal interests in front of their clients’. Yes, it is true that you should have a personal interest and passion for your business, but your interest is not what drives sales. Meeting your clients’ needs and delivering stellar client service is what drives sales and generates revenue. Smart business owners know that running a client-centered business is necessary in order to stay ahead of the competition. After all, when you focus your efforts on client satisfaction, your clients will become your biggest free marketing tool. Not only will they become lifetime clients, but they will also refer you to friends, family members, and colleagues any chance they get. Word of mouth, any successful business owner will tell you, is the most powerful marketing tool available. If you’re focused on client satisfaction, then all of your clients will likely become lifetime clients and become a free source of marketing when they refer their friends, family, coworkers, and everyone they know to you. Continue to be open to making changes that can enhance being client-centered and you will improve the opportunity to be successful. When you run a client centered business, you will run a business set up for success.

Do You Truly Want to Achieve Your Goals Badly Enough?

Dec 18, 2011 00:02:37

Description:

What’s the difference between someone who achieves their goals and someone who just dreams about them? The starting point is always their level of desire, and how bad they want it. Try to remember a time when you heard how someone defied all the odds and achieved something that seemed impossible. You might have been stunned by their sheer determination to achieve their goal. What gave them their determination? They wanted it bad enough. Their desire led to a choice which set their desire into motion. They learned to make only those choices that supported their goals. And if they can do it, you can too. Achieving your goals doesn’t have anything to do with where you’ve been; you can always get to where you want to be - if you want it bad enough. Try this exercise. Think about something you really want. Maybe you want a better job, more money, or to be more fit. Whatever it is, make sure it’s something you really want. Close your eyes for a moment and imagine how you would feel already having achieved it. Feels great, doesn’t it? You have to want your dream life bad enough to make a choice. That choice is to live a life that makes you feel great.

Is your Business Really Focused on Client Satisfaction?

Dec 18, 2011 00:07:10

Description:

Today we are going to talk about Is your Business Really Focused on Client Satisfaction? Is your Business Really Client-Centered? There are many factors that go into building a successful business. However, one of the most important, yet one of the most ignored, is focusing on creating client satisfaction. Create a client-centered business and you’ll ensure that your business gets only rave reviews, while setting it up for success. Are your clients’ interests at the core of your business? If not, your business will remain at a standstill for years to come. Many business owners have the perception that they run a client-centered business, but in reality, they have gotten into a bad habit of putting their own personal interests in front of their clients’. Yes, it is true that you should have a personal interest and passion for your business, but your interest is not what drives sales. Meeting your clients’ needs and delivering stellar client service is what drives sales and generates revenue. Smart business owners know that running a client-centered business is necessary in order to stay ahead of the competition. After all, when you focus your efforts on client satisfaction, your clients will become your biggest free marketing tool. Not only will they become lifetime clients, but they will also refer you to friends, family members, and colleagues any chance they get. Word of mouth, any successful business owner will tell you, is the most powerful marketing tool available. If you’re focused on client satisfaction, then all of your clients will likely become lifetime clients and become a free source of marketing when they refer their friends, family, coworkers, and everyone they know to you. Continue to be open to making changes that can enhance being client-centered and you will improve the opportunity to be successful. When you run a client centered business, you will run a business set up for success.

How to Get Things Done with a Master Task List

Oct 21, 2011 00:08:42

Description:

Today we are going to talk about How to Get Things Done with a Master Task List. Focusing on many responsibilities is a vital part of successfully running your business successfully. But how do you know which tasks need to be completed immediately and which tasks can wait? You have so many things you need to do that it can be very overwhelming. If you focus on the less important tasks, while the most important go unnoticed or forgotten about, you could be sabotaging your overall success. Fortunately, you can get a grip on your essential tasks by learning how to get things done with a master task list. We will discuss some valuable insight on how to use a master task list to increase your success. What is a Master Task List? How do you use a Master Task List Understanding how to use a master task list can only be done by truly understanding why you need to create one. A master task list has one purpose: to help you complete the key tasks vital to running your business at its optimal efficiency and effectiveness. The goal is to accomplish the tasks on your list as soon as you can, so you can clear your head of the distractions. To aid in that, place the tasks from your master task list into a calendar where you can map out time limits for each task. Remember to delegate the unimportant or low-priority tasks to an assistant or employee. You, as the business owner, should only be focusing on the most vital tasks that are best suited to be handled by you. Everything else is trivial, temporary, or low-priority, and can likely be delegated to an assistant.

Focus on what you can control

Aug 29, 2011 00:03:01

Description:

Are you the driver or passenger in your life? Don’t think for a second that sitting in the passenger seat is going to get you where you want to be. If you want to be successful, you have to make plans, take action and commit to achieving your goals. Surrendering the wheel to the “luck of life” will not give you peace of mind, but it will mean you’re in for a rough ride. When you give up control, you are at the mercy of whatever life throws at you, and you will most likely get everything you do not want. Success only comes from those who drive their own life. Don’t just take things for granted. Create a game plan and focus on what you can control. YOU and your actions! Consider the results if you do or don’t take action.

Think Big and Grow Your Business

Aug 29, 2011 00:07:53

Description:

Today we are going to talk about Think Big and Grow Your Business. Contrary to common belief, most successful entrepreneurs aren’t born into money or possess above average IQ’s. Most of them are self-made and many of them do not even have college degrees. It doesn’t take genius to become successful; it only takes the proper mindset, desire, and commitment. How do you gain the proper mindset? By learning to think outside of the box. If you quit tending to your business, would it run on its own? The likely (and logical) answer is no. If your business cannot run without you - you’ve got to start thinking outside the box! One of the quickest ways to grow your business is to gain leverage. You do that by creating a business that does not solely rely on you. Frankly, building passive income isn’t as difficult as many people make it out to be. It comes down to being able to think outside the box and expand your mindset to accommodate a successful reality. The goal is to create a source of residual recurring income in the least time investment possible. Another key to growing your business is to delegate the time-consuming, non-income driving tasks to someone else. Making the transition from where you are to where you want to be starts with thinking outside the box. Remember, the key is to leverage your business so it is not dependent on your daily attention. Create residual income streams and delegate non-income driving tasks to a virtual assistant or employee. Follow these tips and your business will grow beyond your wildest dreams.

Can I Succeed Telling the Truth?

Jul 26, 2011 00:02:48

Description:

Not only can you succeed by telling the truth, you can thrive telling the truth. The reason is that you will attract clients with lots of money who can handle the truth, and prefer the truth. The question on the table is whether you really can succeed if you tell the truth. The answer is yes, absolutely you can. It can actually give you a competitive advantage in a market glutted by people full of hot air. Most people fear nobody wants to hear the truth, but of course they do! And the ones who want to hear the truth will be your best and most lucrative clients. Most successful people respond to bare-bald-buck-naked facts, because most successful people got that way by remaining grounded in reality. Jack Welch, arguably the greatest CEO of our times, held the philosophy, “Tell me the truth, and tell me early.” If something happened and you knew and didn’t tell him about it, you were fired. But if you came to him early and told him, “You know what? This whole project is screwed up, and I don’t know what to do about it,” you’d go a long way with Jack Welch. Truthfulness and believability always have appeal. If your claims aren’t inflated, if you trust your clients and sincerely believe they deserve the truth and can handle reality, they will trust you in return. As Emerson said, “Trust men and they will be true to you; treat them greatly and they will show themselves great.” The truth has power. If you tell the truth, you begin to play in a new league; you walk away from the games of salesmanship and into the realm of reality as a Trusted Advisor. Tell the truth and get and keep great clients. \Go to http://www.accountabilitycoach.com/landing/ and get 3 FREE gifts including a special report on 10 Power Tips for Getting Focused, Organized, and Achieving Your Goals Now.

If your employees aren’t functioning to the best of their abilities, your business won’t be either. So, ask yourself, are you an effective team leader? Do you lead by example? Are you compassionate and patient, yet firm? Are you an approachable leader? Do your actions build team loyalty? Being an effective leader takes time and lots of personal development. Honestly, some people will never be effective leaders because it doesn’t suit their personality. However, as an entrepreneur and business owner, it is vital that you become the best leader you can be so your business, and your team, can grow personally and professionally. Ultimately, how far you want to take your success depends on you. When you commit to evolving into the best person you can be, your success follows suit - and so does your team. My hope for our time together is that you got value and an idea or two that will help you be even more successful – personally and professionally.

Can I Succeed Telling the Truth?

Jul 25, 2011 00:02:48

Description:

Not only can you succeed by telling the truth, you can thrive telling the truth. The reason is that you will attract clients with lots of money who can handle the truth, and prefer the truth. The question on the table is whether you really can succeed if you tell the truth. The answer is yes, absolutely you can. It can actually give you a competitive advantage in a market glutted by people full of hot air. Most people fear nobody wants to hear the truth, but of course they do! And the ones who want to hear the truth will be your best and most lucrative clients. Most successful people respond to bare-bald-buck-naked facts, because most successful people got that way by remaining grounded in reality. Jack Welch, arguably the greatest CEO of our times, held the philosophy, “Tell me the truth, and tell me early.” If something happened and you knew and didn’t tell him about it, you were fired. But if you came to him early and told him, “You know what? This whole project is screwed up, and I don’t know what to do about it,” you’d go a long way with Jack Welch. Truthfulness and believability always have appeal. If your claims aren’t inflated, if you trust your clients and sincerely believe they deserve the truth and can handle reality, they will trust you in return. As Emerson said, “Trust men and they will be true to you; treat them greatly and they will show themselves great.” The truth has power. If you tell the truth, you begin to play in a new league; you walk away from the games of salesmanship and into the realm of reality as a Trusted Advisor. Tell the truth and get and keep great clients. \Go to http://www.accountabilitycoach.com/landing/ and get 3 FREE gifts including a special report on 10 Power Tips for Getting Focused, Organized, and Achieving Your Goals Now.

4 Tips for Understanding How Fitness Impacts your Business

Jul 8, 2011 00:07:30

Description:

Today we are going to talk about 4 Tips for Understanding How Fitness Impacts your Business. Business owners tend to become all-consumed in their business, allowing their physical fitness fall to the bottom of their priority list. While a common occurrence, this habit may sabotage the success of your business - and your health. Being an entrepreneur takes lots of energy, more than many other careers, and being healthy and physically fit is vital to maintaining the valuable source of energy you need to keep up with your business. If you’re not fit, neither is your business! Do you understand how fitness impacts your business? If you’re not fit, neither is your business. As an entrepreneur, you’re always on the go. This likely means you don’t have the chance to sit down and enjoy a proper meal as much as you’d like. While refueling on empty calories may seem necessary and harmless, feasting on the wrong foods can actually cause your already low energy to plummet. Let’s be honest, most entrepreneurs seem to drink more caffeine and energy drinks than they should. If you fall into that group, put down the caffeine down. Instead of downing an energy drink, reach for a cup of water As an entrepreneur, you more than likely lead a hectic lifestyle. Attending meetings, managing your business, and constantly being on the run require you to be in tiptop physical shape. Refuel your body with nutritious food so that it can in turn provide you with the energy for leading such jam-packed days. The bottom line is that if you’re not fit, neither is your business.

5 Benefits for Taking Action to Increase Success

Jun 12, 2011 00:08:23

Description:

Today we are going to talk about 5 Benefits for Taking Action to Increase Success. New business owners are especially prone to delay taking action in their business, because the unknown outcome can be pretty intimidating. However, even seasoned entrepreneurs will put off taking action, simply due to the fact they lack the free time to juggle another endeavor. So what to do when you know that taking action would benefit your business, but you can’t seem to implement much needed change? Ask yourself these questions: 1. Do I want to increase my income (grow my business)? 2. Do I want to grow my client base? 3. Do I want to create more free time? If you answered yes to at least one of those questions, then taking action now is the best thing you can do for you – and your business. Just for a moment, let’s go back to the reason(s) you became an entrepreneur? Although there may be many reasons, they are all probably related to the following benefits: • More free time • Work from home • The freedom to make money doing what you enjoy • Independence, flexibility, and freedom with schedule • Unlimited earning potential • Didn’t want to work for anyone Sound familiar? “If comfort is your goal, success in NOT in your future.” – Bill Bachrach, CSP, CPAE “If you are bored with life, if you don’t get up every morning with a burning desire to do things - you don’t have enough goals.” – Lou Holtz Whether you are new to the entrepreneur arena or a seasoned business owner, it’s important to think creatively. Taking action from a fresh perspective not only encourages your success, but the success of your business as well.

Getting People "in the Mood"

May 28, 2011 00:03:55

Description:

Do people buy and make decisions on logic or emotion? Understanding your clients' emotions--and knowing how they drive key decisions--is critical to building successful high-trust relationships with them. Most accomplished professionals already know how great a role emotion plays in people's decisions. And people are emotional, especially about their decisions and their money. What would happen if you could predictably create that mood? Here are five simple steps for using questions to shape the mood of any conversation or meeting. 1. Decide what emotional mood you want to create. Do you want curiosity, excitement, concern, connection, or what? 2. Experience that emotion yourself. Get yourself "in the mood" before you try to bring your clients there. 3. Think of a time or circumstance that creates that emotion for your client. 4. Ask a question. Be sure it's a question you know will elicit that positive emotion: 5. Be congruent! Don't just "act" as if you feel a certain way. If you want to create excitement, then be excited. Your whole objective in influencing people's emotions is to create an enjoyable experience for them. How can you apply this concept in your life to achieve even better results?

Grow your Business by Thinking Big: Mindset Is Important

May 28, 2011 00:07:39

Description:

Today we are going to talk about Grow your Business by Thinking Big: Mindset Makes all the Difference. Whether or not you realize it, your earnings will always be in line with your mindset. Think big and you will get much bigger results; think small and…well, you can guess what that brings. The key to growing your business is thinking big! What happens when you think small? What happens when you think big? Wealthy people think differently, and that’s no secret, but, what may not be so obvious is how their mindset directly affects their ability to continually grow. Adjusting your Mindset If you want big results, you have to learn to think big. By becoming a go getter and ignoring your inhibitions you’ll become more confident and therefore be able to accomplish business growth. You’ve got to push the limits, step outside your comfort zone, and reach farther. Here’s how you start: There’s certainly nothing wrong with the thinking small, if you’ve been happy with everything you’ve settled for so far. You will rarely get what you want and you will certainly not get what you deserve when you think small. You absolutely deserve much more than what you’ve been getting. Thinking big is about realizing your potential and getting what you deserve instead of limiting yourself. There is nothing stopping you from growing your business and thinking big - the ability to change lies within you.

By becoming a go getter and ignoring your inhibitions you’ll become more confident and therefore be able to accomplish business growth. You’ve got to push the limits, step outside your comfort zone, and reach farther. Here’s how you start: There’s certainly nothing wrong with the thinking small, if you’ve been happy with everything you’ve settled for so far. You will rarely get what you want and you will certainly not get what you deserve when you think small. You absolutely deserve much more than what you’ve been getting. Thinking big is about realizing your potential and getting what you deserve instead of limiting yourself. There is nothing stopping you from growing your business and thinking big - the ability to change lies within you.

Persistence: The Commonality of Champions

May 17, 2011 00:08:47

Description:

Today we are going to talk about Persistence: The Commonality of Champions Look upon history, and you’ll find that the notable quality that exists in all champions is persistence. The path you walk will not always be easy, but you have to continue to persist. Even in the face of seemingly overwhelming odds, you must keep putting one foot in front of the other, because there are lessons to be learned along the way, all of which will support your success. When you are solution-oriented, you focus on the possibilities, not the impossibilities. In truth, nothing is impossible, and change is inevitable. Knowing this, you can take persistent steps in faith, with the wisdom that nothing stays the same, and at some time in the future your current obstacles will dissolve. The most important thing to remember about persistence is to trust your own intuition. Don’t listen to the critics and silence the self-doubt. If you have a feeling that something is going to work, even if everyone says it won’t, persist in your goal until you achieve it. There is core genius in you - and that is the stuff that champions are born from.

Use a Prioritized Action List to Keep You Focused

May 16, 2011 00:03:07

Description:

Most people I coach don’t initially have a Master Task List, Prioritized Action List, or one place where they keep all the activities required to achieve their goals. How do you know what to do every day if you don’t have a list? How do you know you are on track to achieving your goals if you don’t have a list? How do you remember what to do if you don’t have a list? I call it a Prioritized Action List (PAL) for a reason – all the activities should be prioritized and all in one place. Most people have sticky notes and pieces of paper everywhere and don’t have one single place to put everything they need to do to give themselves the highest probability of achieving their goals. They are afraid they will forget something, they are afraid they won’t remember something. These things in their head keep them up at night and a little on edge because they want to remember everything they need to do to get their job done well and make the kind of money they deserve. If you are like most people I coach, you will feel more in control and more focused, not to mention more productive when you have a Prioritized Action List and consistently utilize it. When you follow the activities on your list, you know you are having an impact on achievement of your goals. That’s a great feeling! You should have it more often don’t you think? Begin using a PAL today and see how it can help you be even more successful.

Effective Time Management in Key to Your Success

May 8, 2011 00:03:05

Description:

I can’t tell you how many people I begin working with who don’t effectively utilize their calendar. When I ask to review what is on their calendar it is many times empty. I ask them what are the chances you are actually doing the most important activities to help you achieve your goals when there is nothing on your calendar. They honestly tell me not good. They wonder what to do or they muddle through activities and then wonder why they don’t hit their goals. Sound like anyone you might know? One way is to use a Master Task List or Prioritized Action Plan to have all your activities in one place – not on stickie notes here and there or pieces of paper laying all around you or floating around in your head. Everything goes in one place and you review it frequently. This helps keep you focused on what you have to do and in a priority order. You will be amazed at how much more productive you are and how much more focused you are and how much more on track to achieving your goals you are.

How to Get the Most Out of Life and Live With No Regrets

May 7, 2011 00:07:59

Description:

Today we are going to talk about How to Get the Most Out of Life and Live With No Regrets Are you living life to the fullest? If life ended tomorrow, would you feel as though you have absolutely lived it to the tilt, with no regrets? If you are like most of us, you still have that “someday” list of dreams that haven’t yet come true tucked away in a drawer. Sadly, life doesn’t have to be that way, but very few people get the most out of life before it’s over. There are, however, a select few that seem to have the philosophy of life figured out and live every day without regret. You know, the kind of people that seem at peace, move at a comfortable pace, and don’t seem to be distracted by the small stuff. They accept others without judgment and walk with an open heart while the rest of us get caught up in the rush of daily life, with no real connection to ourselves or anyone else. We’re so busy, we don’t even have time to think about what’s missing, let alone trying to figure out how to get the most out of life. But what if the solution to living with no regrets was as simple as a single question? Let’s talk about some ways you can begin to change your life and to get the most out it! Regrets are a waste of time – you can’t change the past. As one of my clients says: “Put your big girl panties on and deal with it.” Create your game plan to achieve your goals this year so you can enjoy what is truly important to you in life. Start today! My hope for our time together is that you got value and an idea or two that will help you be even more successful – personally and professionally.

Kick Your “Time-Wasters” Habits

Apr 30, 2011 00:03:01

Description:

As good as you think you may be with your time management; there are always “time-wasters” that can be eliminated from your daily life. All the miscellaneous stuff that consumes your time with little or no return eventually must be eliminated from your schedule. When you think about it, what do all the time wasting activities you do every day cost you? I suggest you try NOT CHECKING EMAIL FIRST THING IN THE MORNING. SCHEDULE TIME to handle your emails. It could be two times a day – at 11:00am and then at 4:00pm. You can set the autoresponder to tell people that you check it 2 times a day or not. Some people like to do this so people know when to expect a response back and some don’t care if they do this. This one simple concept, of NOT checking email first thing in the morning, can help you stop wasting time in one area and focus on the activities you need to do in order to achieve your goals. Don’t take my word for it, try it like my other coaching clients have and see what impact it has in your life.

Real Life Isn’t Boring! How to Live Life with No Regrets

Apr 9, 2011 00:02:59

Description:

Life goes by so quickly – don’t miss out on the extraordinary opportunities you have to live life without regret! Ask yourself this question, if you left this world tomorrow, would you feel as if you lived life to the fullest extent? Most of us were taught that being an adult is about being responsible, and life is not about having fun. You’re supposed to have all your fun when you’re a child, then “grow up” and live responsibly in the real world. I challenge you to break that false perception and create a new rule of your own. If you could live life exactly as you wanted, what would you change? Without even realizing it, you could probably come up with at least three things that would involve less work and more fun. Go ahead, make your list right now.

Top 6 Strategies for Dealing with Difficult Situations

Mar 14, 2011 00:08:19

Description:

Today we are going to talk about Top 6 Strategies for Dealing with Difficult Situations. Entrepreneurs are often juggling multiple stressful situations and if you let stress take over your life, you’re going to burn out and lose passion for your business. Overcoming difficult issues with ease is an art that can be learned, simply by identifying effective strategies for dealing with difficult situations. Once you learn the basics, you can implement them, in any difficult situation, to help you reach your desired end result. We are going to talk about 6 strategies to help you deal with difficult situations. You can overcome difficult strategies with ease just by making a few changes to the way you handle tasks. Once you identify strategies for dealing with difficult situations and implement them, you’ll be prepared to handle just about any tough situation that’s thrown your way. It’s about focusing on the end result, breaking each task down into manageable steps, and altering the way you work to reach maximum productivity. Remember, when you’re feeling overwhelmed, that is a sign to stop and evaluate the situation. Tough situations are best dealt with calm and objectiveness. If you are too emotionally involved, upset or angry, it may be best to let it go for the time being. Take time to think and reflect upon your desired outcome and form your conversation around that goal. If you are ready to address it in 15 minutes, great. If you need 24 hours, that’s okay too. The important thing to remember is to follow the six strategies to help you achieve your end result - however, long it takes.

Delegate! Delegate! Delegate!

Feb 26, 2011 00:02:55

Description:

So many people I work with hold on to way too many activities that stop them from doing their highest pay-off activities that will put them in the highest probability position to achieve their goals. They continue to do work that they have always done because they have always done it, instead of delegating these tasks to someone else. This wastes a lot of time. Sometimes someone else can even do a better job at a task then you have done. Start by making a list of everything someone else can do as you actually do things that don’t have to be done by you. When I ask my clients, could someone else do the thing on their list we are talking about, they reluctantly tell you that yes someone else could do it. Even if you don’t currently have someone to delegate to you will begin to see how much you can delegate and how many things can really be given to someone else to do. You may have two different people to delegate to because one person isn’t enough or can’t do all the different things that you currently are doing. For example, you might need an assistant and a client service person or a marketing person and these might need to be two different people. Prioritize the list and give each item one at a time so not to overwhelm someone or give them too much if they already have a full time job. Think delegate when you are doing everything that you do and it will make you more productive and help you generate more revenue and even have more time off to do what you want to do.

Download Free Chapter of New Book, Live Life With No Regrets

Feb 26, 2011 00:05:55

Description:

Today you are receiving something very special. You will be given information at the end of this podcast to download a chapter of my brand new book, Live Life with No Regrets; How the Choices We Make Impact ourLlives. There is no charge to you when you do this. I hope you get value from reading just one chapter. Imagine reflecting on your past, from any point in your long, happy life, and having no regrets. How did you get here? How would you like to free yourself of past regrets and live a life where you have no regrets ever again? What would have to happen from this point going forward for you to live a life of no regrets? That’s why I wrote this book. To help you choose to create the future you really want. Regrets are a waste of time anyway, as you can’t change the past. So, let go of the past and decide to choose to live your life in a way where you will have no regrets from this day forward. Living a life with no regrets doesn’t mean perfection. It means you know how to make the right choice every time, a choice that you will not regret. You think about the impact and outcome of a decision and know you can comfortably live with the choice you make. We don’t know the future. We only can make decisions based on what we do know at the present time. Is a successful and happy life with few or no regrets a choice…? Is success a choice or a chance collision of various uncontrollable factors? In studying self-improvement, we learn that we can’t change others, nor can we single-handedly change the world. However, we do have the power to change our own lives. We are living a life we chose, based on the decisions we made in the past and will make into the future. This is the single most important message in self-improvement. You do not have to settle for what you think is life’s “role” for you. You are not doomed to live a life you are unhappy living. You are not obligated to do what others think you should do. Any and all of these self-limiting beliefs can be overcome. You have the power to look for another job and make a positive change in your career. You have the power to seek out higher education to follow a different career path. You have the ability to define success for yourself and the capacity to achieve that pinnacle of success by working smart and exercising perseverance. Success is a choice that comes from being intentional about living your life with the highest probability of achieving your goals so you can enjoy what is most important to you. Success comes from choosing to live your life with purpose. This is how you live a life with no regrets. You make your own choices. The choices you make will impact your life – positively or negatively, depending on the path you choose. Choose to live your life with no regrets from this day forward. You choose how and where to live. If you are unhappy with any part of your life, choose to change it – and start today. If what you are currently doing doesn’t serve you, you can choose to change it right now. When we change how we look at things, the things we look at change. You can choose to start by taking “baby” steps. Start by having a day without regrets. How about a business trip where you don’t have any regrets? What would a vacation without regrets look like and feel like? What would have to happen to have an argument or “touchy” conversation with your spouse or child without regrets? How would you have a conversation with a client you don’t enjoy and not have any regrets? How would you communicate with employees who may not be working to your expectations and not have any regrets? Could you have a day of making everyday business decisions and personal choices without any regrets? What would a day without regrets look like and feel like? What would a week of no regrets look like and feel like? What would a month of no regrets look like and feel like? Keep reading...

Download Free Chapter of New Book, Live Life With No Regrets

Feb 25, 2011 00:05:55

Description:

Today you are receiving something very special. You will be given information at the end of this podcast to download a chapter of my brand new book, Live Life with No Regrets; How the Choices We Make Impact ourLlives. There is no charge to you when you do this. I hope you get value from reading just one chapter. Imagine reflecting on your past, from any point in your long, happy life, and having no regrets. How did you get here? How would you like to free yourself of past regrets and live a life where you have no regrets ever again? What would have to happen from this point going forward for you to live a life of no regrets? That’s why I wrote this book. To help you choose to create the future you really want. Regrets are a waste of time anyway, as you can’t change the past. So, let go of the past and decide to choose to live your life in a way where you will have no regrets from this day forward. Living a life with no regrets doesn’t mean perfection. It means you know how to make the right choice every time, a choice that you will not regret. You think about the impact and outcome of a decision and know you can comfortably live with the choice you make. We don’t know the future. We only can make decisions based on what we do know at the present time. Is a successful and happy life with few or no regrets a choice…? Is success a choice or a chance collision of various uncontrollable factors? In studying self-improvement, we learn that we can’t change others, nor can we single-handedly change the world. However, we do have the power to change our own lives. We are living a life we chose, based on the decisions we made in the past and will make into the future. This is the single most important message in self-improvement. You do not have to settle for what you think is life’s “role” for you. You are not doomed to live a life you are unhappy living. You are not obligated to do what others think you should do. Any and all of these self-limiting beliefs can be overcome. You have the power to look for another job and make a positive change in your career. You have the power to seek out higher education to follow a different career path. You have the ability to define success for yourself and the capacity to achieve that pinnacle of success by working smart and exercising perseverance. Success is a choice that comes from being intentional about living your life with the highest probability of achieving your goals so you can enjoy what is most important to you. Success comes from choosing to live your life with purpose. This is how you live a life with no regrets. You make your own choices. The choices you make will impact your life – positively or negatively, depending on the path you choose. Choose to live your life with no regrets from this day forward. You choose how and where to live. If you are unhappy with any part of your life, choose to change it – and start today. If what you are currently doing doesn’t serve you, you can choose to change it right now. When we change how we look at things, the things we look at change. You can choose to start by taking “baby” steps. Start by having a day without regrets. How about a business trip where you don’t have any regrets? What would a vacation without regrets look like and feel like? What would have to happen to have an argument or “touchy” conversation with your spouse or child without regrets? How would you have a conversation with a client you don’t enjoy and not have any regrets? How would you communicate with employees who may not be working to your expectations and not have any regrets? Could you have a day of making everyday business decisions and personal choices without any regrets? What would a day without regrets look like and feel like? What would a week of no regrets look like and feel like? What would a month of no regrets look like and feel like? Keep reading...

This includes unnecessary chats with colleagues, long lunches, or non-focused or misguided meetings that do not accomplish goals and resolve issues. The success of your business venture depends on your ability to buckle down and learn how to stay focused.

5 Top Success Principles

Jan 25, 2011 00:08:54

Description:

Today we are going to talk about Top 5 Success Principles. If you think creating a successful business may just be the most challenging goal you’ve ever taken on, you are probably correct. Building a successful business is not a walk in the park, but it is certainly a realizable and achievable goal. It doesn’t always require a lot of money (although that would clearly be an asset) and frankly, it doesn’t even require that you have more talent than the “average Joe.” However, building a successful business does require a strategic business owner who follows the principles of success to build a castle where there was once only sand. Let’s talk about the Top 5 Success Principles that will teach you how to create a successful business in realistic and achievable steps. You can build a successful business by following these five success principles. Many business owners tend to make a situation more complicated than it needs to be; they think achieving success is only attainable for the rich and famous or for those who have been dealt a lucky hand. However, it’s been proven many times over that an “average Joe” can transform into a wealthy business owner if they are dedicated to success and learn how to think strategically for the sake of their business. The most important factor when achieving success is having a game plan. Without it you are merely going to be “winging it,” and that will make the journey more complicated that it needs to be.

The ‘stuff’ in your head is distracting you!

Jan 9, 2011 00:02:21

Description:

The ‘stuff’ in your head is distracting you from achieving your goals! Do you have things continually going on in your head about all the things you have to do today, tomorrow, next week, etc.? Those are distractions! When you effectively use your calendar and master task list or your goals sheet (whichever you want to call it) on a consistent basis you don’t have to have all these things going on in your head thinking you have to remember them and being afraid you are going to forget to do something. Do some of these things you have in your head keep you up at night? When you take them out of your head and put them on your Master Task List or Prioritized Action List and then on your calendar, you can sleep better every night. You will be more in control and you will feel a sense of relief. Don’t believe me, try this for yourself and you will be like the many people I coach who have that sigh of relief when they get all these distractions out of their head and in the proper place. Stop distracting yourself with all your thoughts. Implement effective time management and use your master task list to your advantage and stop letting all that ‘stuff’ in your head distracts you from what you are capable of achieving.

Use the 80/20 Rule to Grow Your Business

Jan 9, 2011 00:09:08

Description:

Today we are going to talk about Use the 80/20 Rule to Grow Your Business. If your business is not growing, you need to get a handle on the way you’re running it. Many business owners tend to spend a great amount of time performing unnecessary tasks that contribute little to the growth of your business. The 80/20 rule, otherwise known as the Pareto Principle, teaches that only 20% of your actions should lead to 80% of your results. Get a handle on your business by putting the 80/20 rule into effect and identifying high payoff tasks. The 80/20 Rule (Pareto Principle) Explained What the Pareto Principle Means for Your Business Identify the High Payoff Tasks The Other Side of the Pareto Principle If your business is struggling, you can use the 80/20 rule to identify high payoff tasks. If you are currently working ten hours or more each day, put the 80/20 rule into action to finally take back control of your life. By doing so, you’ll be able to move past the fruitless tasks that make up 80% of your business and take up most of your time.

The ‘stuff’ in your head is distracting you!

Jan 8, 2011 00:02:21

Description:

The ‘stuff’ in your head is distracting you from achieving your goals! Do you have things continually going on in your head about all the things you have to do today, tomorrow, next week, etc.? Those are distractions! When you effectively use your calendar and master task list or your goals sheet (whichever you want to call it) on a consistent basis you don’t have to have all these things going on in your head thinking you have to remember them and being afraid you are going to forget to do something. Do some of these things you have in your head keep you up at night? When you take them out of your head and put them on your Master Task List or Prioritized Action List and then on your calendar, you can sleep better every night. You will be more in control and you will feel a sense of relief. Don’t believe me, try this for yourself and you will be like the many people I coach who have that sigh of relief when they get all these distractions out of their head and in the proper place. Stop distracting yourself with all your thoughts. Implement effective time management and use your master task list to your advantage and stop letting all that ‘stuff’ in your head distracts you from what you are capable of achieving.

Description:

Today we are going to talk about Use the 80/20 Rule to Grow Your Business. If your business is not growing, you need to get a handle on the way you’re running it. Many business owners tend to spend a great amount of time performing unnecessary tasks that contribute little to the growth of your business.

Get a handle on your business by putting the 80/20 rule into effect and identifying high payoff tasks. The 80/20 Rule (Pareto Principle) Explained What the Pareto Principle Means for Your Business Identify the High Payoff Tasks The Other Side of the Pareto Principle If your business is struggling, you can use the 80/20 rule to identify high payoff tasks.

Stop Procrastinating and Just Freakin' Do It

Dec 16, 2010 00:02:46

Description:

Procrastination, also known as dilly-dallying, dragging your feet, and excuse making is something we have all experienced at one time or another. Why do people procrastinate? So how to stop procrastinating? Just FREAKIN’ DO IT! What is stopping you? What are you really afraid of? What’s the worst that can happen if you just do it? I’ve talked with so many people about just doing what they weren’t doing and they realized that they were really afraid of the unknown and that when they actually did what they were afraid of it wasn’t so bad after all and they actually received positive feedback and the next time they were procrastinating, they just sucked it up, but their big girl or big boy pants on and did it. One example that seems to come up often is asking for referrals. Asking people they know. We cop out for some reason and just don’t want to do it. When they came up with a script and committed to the action, they executed it, and had success in every case. Speaking of peace of mind, when you think back to all the times you put something off because you thought it was going to cause you great discomfort – was it really as bad as you thought it would be? It probably wasn’t, but you worried about it – put it off – worried about it some more – put it off longer… It doesn’t have to be that way. Just DO IT!

Increase The Power of Your Focus and Achieve Your Goals

Nov 10, 2010 00:02:30

Description:

Living your life without practicing The Power of Focus, is like trying to hit the bull’s eye of a target you can’t see. You can spend hours launching arrows, only to miss the target entirely. You become exhausted and frustrated when your repeated efforts don’t show the results you are trying to achieve. This is what it feels like to operate without The Power of Focus. To get to where you want to be, you must hold clear in your mind what you most want. Your subconscious mind is a powerful, goal-achieving machine, but it can’t lead you to your desired goal, if you don’t provide it with a specific target. If it doesn’t have a clear and specific target, it can’t get you there. The Power of Focus is the practice of focusing on the ‘right’ tasks at hand, while minimizing distractions that take your focus away from your goals. It will improve time management, professional and personal performance, task efficiency, overall life balance, and provide your mind the information it needs to get you to the bull’s eye. A client of mine set a goal she was afraid to set because she had never been successful at achieving it before. We brainstormed a list of what we thought were the ‘right’ activities she needed to do in order to achieve this particular goal. She got focused on these activities, did them, and exceeded her goal! The same thing can happen for you when you focus on the ‘right’ activities.

What is Strategic Thinking & How to Apply it to Your Busines

Oct 30, 2010 00:09:36

Description:

Today we are going to talk about What is Strategic Thinking and How to Apply it to Your Business. The theory of strategic thinking has been gaining steam in the business world. While it follows the same outline as strategic planning, it differs in that it allows more flexibility, greater creativity, and more collaboration among multiple levels of management. Essentially, strategic thinking is a method outlining the following: • Understanding the implications of strategic actions • Holding the past, present and future in mind in order to make effective decisions • Focusing on the goal of the action with the intent of achieving it • Combining critical and creative thinking to all decisions • “Intelligent optimism,” the ability to respond to good opportunities Each of these steps is categorized into the 7 following areas. Let’s discuss them now. Now let’s talk about five steps to implementing Strategic Thinking in your business. Strategic Thinking is not a new way of thinking; many successful large organizations have used these practices to establish a clear and precise path on which to carry out their vision. It is essentially a critical thinking process in which all business details are written down in black and white, so that all team members work cooperatively to drive success in the most direct path with the least resistance. Applying Strategic Thinking practices to your small business will accelerate your success by allowing a crystal clear focus to drive daily tasks - for you and your team.

Are your limiting beliefs helping you or hurting you?

Oct 18, 2010 00:02:26

Description:

We all have limiting beliefs that we don’t even realize we have. I was talking with a client one day about referrals. Referrals in most businesses are very important. It is typically much easier to get a new client when they are being referred to us than if you are just doing regular marketing and there isn’t a referral. He was telling me he wanted to get more referrals… He only always gets 2 referrals every time he asks. I asked him what he expected to receive and he said 2. Hummmmmm. I asked him if he expected to receive more did he think he could get more. Hmmmmmm He said YES. Do he picked a bigger number and started expecting more and guess what… he received more. Expect to receive referrals from everyone you ask. Show up like this is what you expect. People who ask - receive. I have known people who have received 90 and 175 referrals from one existing ideal client source. The source can be an existing client, a prospect, a friend, acquaintance, or strategic alliance / center of influence. A person I know received in excess of 200 referrals from one strategic alliance source. Another person received directories of groups where their client was a member, with names of ideal client profile candidates highlighted and pertinent information about each one. I call these occurrences, the mother load. It may not happen often but it can happen to you if you believe it can. It can come to you in big numbers from all different sources. Expect it to happen and it probably will. Put yourself in the position to have the highest probability of achieving your goals and make it as easy as possible for people to provide you with what you want.

4 Benefits of Embracing Change

Oct 18, 2010 00:08:59

Description:

Today we are going to talk about 4 Benefits of Embracing Change You don’t need anyone to tell you that the world is undergoing many changes right now, that’s pretty obvious. What may not be so obvious is your ability to adapt to the changes that are necessary for your business to survive and thrive in the changing market. How do you set yourself up for success when global changes are affecting the future of your business? You find out where the change is headed and adapt to meet the demand. Embracing change is important for everyone to embrace. The ability to adapt to change, and even welcome it, is absolutely essential to the success of your business and life. What happens when you fight change? That’s pretty simple; instead of embracing change and adapting to it, you spent hours of energy fighting it – only to have to surrender to it in the end. The fight didn’t make it any easier, nor did it prevent the change from occurring. So why waste all the time and emotional energy to fight something that is inevitable? Let’s take a look at 4 things that can happen when you embrace change. Change can sometimes be scary, but it really is the key to ultimate success both in life and in business. What are you really afraid of anyway? It may not always feel comfortable, but the more willing you are to embrace change, the less painful it usually is and the more success you will experience. There is no single key to overcoming the anxiety you may feel when embracing change. The important thing to remember is that there are very exciting results waiting for you on the other side, you just need to embrace change with a welcome mat. In the words of one of my clients, “Put your big girl/boy pants on, and suck it up and deal with it.” Take advantage of the complimentary special report on Keys to Working Less, Making More Money, and Having a More Balanced Life by going to www.AccountabilityCoach.com.

Let’s take a look at 4 things that can happen when you embrace change. Change can sometimes be scary, but it really is the key to ultimate success both in life and in business. What are you really afraid of anyway? It may not always feel comfortable, but the more willing you are to embrace change, the less painful it usually is and the more success you will experience. There is no single key to overcoming the anxiety you may feel when embracing change. The important thing to remember is that there are very exciting results waiting for you on the other side, you just need to embrace change with a welcome mat.

5 Tips for Mastering your Beliefs

Today we are going to talk about Are you Headed for Success or Disaster? 5 Tips for Mastering your Beliefs If there is one thing that holds the most power over your success, you can bet that it comes down to your beliefs. Before you even have the opportunity to consciously process the reason behind your actions, and the results those actions put in play, your beliefs are at work determining whether you are headed toward success or disaster. There are literally tens of thousands of actions you take daily (some consciously, most unconsciously), but do you know how those actions are affecting your success? You can probably think of at least one action that you have taken in the past that didn’t necessarily deliver the results you desired. With conscious awareness, you have the ability to examine and identify what went wrong, and what you could change to bring about a different result next time. This is an example of conscious awareness. But what about all those times you make unconscious decisions that bring about undesired results. How do you stop them from occurring? Here is your opportunity to learn how to master your beliefs and head for success. When you expand your belief system, you expand your success. In addition, when you learn to make decisions based on your awareness of wealth and success, your beliefs will shape your success in the way you want it.

Leverage resources and tools to help you achieve your goals

Sep 25, 2010 00:02:33

Description:

Many people are leveraging social media to help them obtain referrals and increase their business. I’ve talked to many people utilizing these resources to do more business. If you like the idea, you may want to include this into your business to see how it can help you do more business and make more money. Here’s an example: An Advisor who is on LinkedIn, found out that a client of his with whom he was having an upcoming meeting with was also on LinkedIn. He noticed that this client had a LinkedIn community of approximately 30 or so people. The client came in to meet with the Advisor for their regular meeting. At the conclusion of the meeting, the Advisor was prepared to ask for referrals to see who else they knew who he might be able to help. He showed the client the LinkedIn community list he took off the internet and asked him who on the list of 30 people in his community would be appropriate to refer to him. To net it out, he got about 9 referrals from the list of 30 names from this one idea. There are many other social media websites (ex. Plaxo, Facebook, Youtube, Ecademy, Twitter, etc) that you can utilize to take advantage of this simple strategy to obtain even more referrals and get more clients so you can help them if they need your product or service. We always want to make it as easy as possible to help people refer people to us who may need our products or services. You can leverage this powerful resource to your advantage and increase the number of referrals and overall business you receive so you can grow your business even faster. You can leverage this resource to do research that can help put you in a higher probability position to achieve your goals.
