Communication:Do It The Professional, First Class Way

To all my readers and viewers,  I had sad news, real sad news. I will be moving soon from WordPress, to a more permanent platform. But I promise not to leave you all, and would take you along with me. Stay in touch constantly and watch out for the next big move.

Sad news aside, we move on to the tip for the day. A How-to:  Not to long ago, I realized and or discovered that in every  business and in every profession, there is a need to communicate what that business or profession does for the customer. Do we all agree???… I take that as a YES.!!!

Sometimes we wrongly and rightly define communication, so let’s find a common ground.- It is a learned skill that is required in everything you will ever do. Every minute and penny spent on learning to communicate well will return your minutes and pennies many times over. You either do it the “Professional, First class way” or  the “Shoddy, Low class way”.

My guess is you all want to go professional. After all that’s the purpose  of this post. Professionalism – is doing the right thing for the customer. Sometimes the right thing isn’t selling your product or service to a person. Keep that in mind.

In other circumstances, a person who very much needs whatever product you have will want to argue with you about some silly thing.. they always do…but he/she is really just afraid of making a poor decision.

What do you do then? DON’T TURN YOUR BACK ON THEM. Why??? Part of the obligation of  being a professional is to get the customers what they really really need.

Focus on  finding people who want a product/service ( that helps people) rather than trying to force it on those who don’t want it. That’s how to communicate the professional-first class way.

Lego Blocks To A Successful Business

Business… is simply making someone’s life better. And that’s all business will ever be. Get the notion out of your head that it’s “an economic system in which goods and services are exchanged for one another or money, on the basis of their perceived worth.”… Absolute nonsense… As my little cousin would say..”poppycock”.

Ok!!! Focus…

The further away a business gets from making its customers’ lives better, the less successful that business will be.

A few tips on how to build your own successful business… it works

  •  ensure your business makes people’s lives better
  • ensure your product is unique and consummable
  • ensure your product is positioned in front of large trends
  • ensure you are not trying to do it all yourself and that you hire agents rather than employees
  • ensure you train your agents and make sure they have as much to gain as you do
  • be a professional

This will ensure you can create wealth and also have the time to enjoy it. It will also ensure you are proud of what you have created.

Here’s to a complete penthouse structure on success…

I Have Run Out Of Titles But Not Words

You can’t achieve success without consistency, which in turn can’t be achieved if you are working outside your strengths.

To be at the top in business, appreciate the might and force of habit. Be quick to break those habits that can break you – and hasten to adopt those practices that’ll become the habits that help you achieve the success you desire.

  J. Paul Getty

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act, but a habit.

    Aristotle

Your daily habits will determine the outcome of your life. Cultivate the right habits and practice them regularly.

Life is nothing more than the sum total of many successful years – successful months – successful weeks – successful days.

If your habits don’t line up with your dream, then you need to either change your habits or change your dream.

Create Wealth???… You Need Leverage

“The best solution to a problem is almost always the simplest solution” –

William of Occam

Leverage equals speed. You want to create wealth? You need lots of leverage.

It’s got to be objective ( your dream) – this advances humanity and adds value. I guess every dollar is an enlightened one.

It’s got to have a fulcrum (that’s you) – the object on which the lever hinges. Without you, no height in the lever and the dream will never move.

It’s got to have a lever. When the first two are in place, your success depends on the length and strength of the lever.

My friends, what am I saying? Continue reading

Building Confidence In Women In Business (DAY SIX)

“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing you think you cannot do” – Eleanor Roosevelt

I often ask myself daily, “what makes women successful?” Could it be the way we move through the world?  Is it our way of being? Regardless of what activity or job we engage in, is it the state from which we operate?

I hope it doesn’t take me years to find this out. But I would love it if I heard from you.

Sometimes we define confidence traditionally as the state of being certain. Other times, exercising power over others. Which is it?

To arrive at this state, with a conscious mind, every decision you make that regards your family, life and business, have the right intentions and know deep within that you are doing the right thing.

I guarantee you that moves you into the state of confidence…

What is your state? Is it playful, loving honest, open, connective, grateful with a willingness to give? Is it full of wonder? Find the state that you can move throughout your world, both business and personal and never falter. Operate from the state that’s independent on the challenges you face.

Find out what makes you happy and what doesn’t. There is and will be great power that comes from deep within you, when you do. The value you give to people won’t be because of the power you have “over” them or because you have more certainty. It would because you know you matter to them.

Be firmly grounded.
