Gain clarity in your business purpose

Many people seem to wander hopelessly around trying to gain clarity on their life (and business) purpose.

Your business is a powerful vehicle to impact countless individuals in an amazing way.

But before you can impact you must be clear. So how do you gain clarity?

1. Have the willingness to see things differently. As has been said in so many ways, “If we do the same thing over and over we get the same result.”

2. Get out in nature. It's amazing how connecting with nature can give us incredible clarity.

3. Talk to a trusted friend or mentor. It needs to be someone who is not attached to the outcome. Their only purpose is to help you gain the clarity.

4. Get out of the usual environment you are in. This is very closely connected with #2. A change of scenery can do you a world of good.

5. Carry a notepad with you at all times. As ideas surface, write them down and don't judge them. You can revisit them later.

6. Join a mastermind group. It's amazing how powerful this can be. And make sure you are surrounding yourself with high possibility thinkers. After all, if you are around naysayers, not much will get done to move you to the space of clarity.

7. Go back to #1. Have the willingness to not only see things differently, but to also do things differently.

Share your message with Kindle eBooks

bootsHow often do we ask what our purpose is? It's actually quite simple. Yet, for many it is illusive.

In many ways, the greatest gift you can give another is to share your message. What is your message? Dig deep to discover it.

Here's how simple it is:

1. Listen to the voice inside

2. Have the willingness to share your message

3. Know that not everyone will want to hear your message

4. Know there are plenty of people who do want to hear your message

5. Have the courage to stand in your power

6. Remember, you are the vessel for the message

7. Be open, willing and take the next indicated step

One way to share your message is with Kindle eBooks. Not sure what to do? Join in for a FREE webinar on October 7th.

Pet Peeve – Reviews; give and take

I'm so relieved. I thought I wasn't going to identify a pet peeve today, but alas! I have.

It is when someone asks me to review a product or book for them, but they expect me to buy it first. Now I get that when I approach them and ask if I can review their stuff, I should in fact, expect to buy it.

But folks, if you approach someone and want them to give their feedback, don't expect them to pay for it.

I just checked my LinkedIn inbox and had several requests like this, all of which wanted me to buy their “stuff” and then review it.

Nope. Doesn't work like that.

Okay, in my book, here's the protocol.

1. Someone approaches an expert and says, “I would love to review your “stuff” and will give you my feedback. Can you send me the link to access?”

Answer: No. You can buy it.

2. You, as an expert and industry leader, are approached by someone to review their stuff. You say, “Give me the link to access.” They respond, “You can purchase it at….”

Answer: Really? You're asking me to review your stuff and you want me to buy it when I likely have no interest in it. Nope!

Be watching for my next Pet Peeve.

Lots of people say they practice Law of Attraction. but complain about how their life is. The reality is, Law of Attraction is always working. To see what you believe in, what you are attracting and what you allow into your life, take a look around.

A simple solution to making money online

If you've found your way here, there's a very strong possibility you're seeking information on how to make money. Granted, not everyone is interested in this, but many are.

The best way to make money online is to have a solid system in place. Yet, many people don't know where to begin.

Here are some things you need to do before you begin:4tips

1.  Identify your expertise. What makes you the “go to” person?
2.  Identify your ideal customers and clients. Who are they (specifically)?
3.  Know what keeps your customers and clients awake at night. What makes them have “monkey brain” at three in the morning?
4.  Provide a viable solution to their problem. How do they want it delivered?

You've likely heard these recommendations from others, but have you done anything about it? If not, it could be you really don't know where to begin.  So you've searched out training programs to show you exactly what to do. But the problem might be they are so overpriced you hesitate investing.

I get it. I've been there. When I first started out online there wasn't much at all available to teach me what to do. Now there is so much to choose from you have to wonder who you should listen to.

Here's the deal… if you've been getting my information for any length of time you know I've been around for many, many years. And you know I love teaching others how to set themselves up for success.

Some of my programs are a few hundred on up to $20,000 plus to invest in. Yes, there are plenty of people who invest in my various programs, but if you have yet to take the plunge with my information, I have something you're going to love and the barrier to entry is minimal.

In answer to those who want great information from me and they want it for a song, I've created a great program for a very minimal investment. It is designed to teach anyone who is serious about getting great information how to build a profitable business.insider

If you're looking for real answers to your real dreams, this program is a great solution.

Why your website isn’t conveying your message

I have a pet peeve and it’s likely something that is costing you customers. I am going through business cards I was given at a recent event. The last two had website addresses for sites that were “under construction.”

Even though our sites may not be what is selling us, it is representing our message. If your site is “under construction” or goes to the GoDaddy listings, bad, bad, bad.

One of the first places a potential client goes is to your website to “check you out.” Does your site represent the message you want to convey? If not, you best get this taken care of right away.

Recently, a virtual assistant contacted me about her services. When I asked for her site address to check out her services and testimonials she said, “Oh my. I’ve been so busy I just haven’t gotten around to updating the information.” Then she giggled.

I was not amused.

In a recent conversation with a potential client I asked the woman for her web address. “I don’t have a site yet. I need to get my logo done first.”

Nooooooo! She should get her site up and running first. Her logo is not as important as people being able to figure out what she does.

Recently, I did a web search for health experts who work with women over the age of 60. One person’s name consistently showed up. Wendy Ida.

Not only does Wendy have a great site, she has videos, blog posts and other great information to support her expertise.

Based on the great information I was able to review about Wendy, I bought her book, her $67 home study program, signed up for a free teleseminar and am on her opt in list. I eagerly await her information because the fact of the matter is, she’s an expert and everything I found on her conveyed this point.

Are you an expert? Does your online presence support your position? Do you have information available that people can access to get a “taste” of you before they invest in your programs?

Or are you piddling your time away trying to get a logo done that 99.9% of potential clients could care less about? (If not a logo, it could be any number of time wasting activities that are not making you money).

Folks, if you want people to know, like and trust you, you best do what you can to grab their attention. You do so with great information in the form of an attractive and functional website, videos, audio files, interviews, reports, articles and blog posts to name a few key elements.

Do you procrastinate getting your information done? If so, I recommend you make getting quality information out to market a top priority.

If you say you don’t have the time, you need to make the time. It’s that simple. Or you need to hire someone to help you.

Product Creation Tip: One of the best ways to get your product creation moving forward is to block out one hour a day for nothing but product creation. If you're guilty of saying, “I'll get around to it,” there's no such thing. You'll watch time pass and then you'll be saying, “What happened?”
