Overcoming Life's Biggest Distractions.
This week’s blog is written by my guest speaker, Derek Aiken, an Iraqi war veteran. Derek will be presenting his seminar, Overcoming Life’s Biggest Distractions, on May 20, 2021.
In the morning when we rise, we often do not know what can or may impact our day. Routinely, we’d get up, walk our dogs, have that morning cup of coffee and do what’s needed to get situated and head into work. At that point, your focus is your job, your current duty, or task. But what happens when your cell phone rings and something offsets that? Now, what do you do? Now, you are no longer focused and are, instead, distracted by the phone call. How do you overcome that? What do you do? What are some measures we can use to get back on track? Was it an anomaly? Was it a preexisting factor that ......
The Art Of The Pivot.
Safe is death.
A few years ago, one of the National Hockey League teams allowed cameras into its locker room during its Stanley Cup playoff run. On the door of the locker room was a sign that read, “Safe is death.” The message was a reminder that when you are engaged in a competitive environment, the more you play it safe, the surer you can be that you are in big trouble.
The same is true when we are talking about competition in business. You can’t sit back and rest on your laurels when you have competition. If there’s any doubt about that, just ask the former CEO of IBM. When asked how Big Blue stopped being the all-time leader in the computer field, his comment was, “It was like being eaten alive by a thousand mosquito-sized......
What Qualities Make You A Star?
Do you know what yours are?
I recently watched a Hallmark movie based in Montana which included “The Cowboy Code.” It was interesting to hear what these four axioms included. The first one was, “Live with courage.” The second one was, “Take pride in your work.” The third one was, “Speak less and say more.” And the fourth one was, “Always finish what you start.”
At the same time that I saw this movie, I was preparing a new seminar entitled 8 Qualities That Will Make You A Star. It’s funny how things come into your life just when you need them. As I looked at “The Cowboy Code,” I could see exactly why it was so powerful. They all lend strength to one another.
Americans are notorious about living with courage. An entrepreneur does not......
Are You A Good Judge Of Character?
It’s easier than you think.
I recently had a television sponsor who backed out of his commitment at the last moment. Luckily, I was able to replace his spot with one telephone call. How did I accomplish this so quickly? It’s because he gave me every indication that he was not a man of his word. Let’s go through the signs.
First, he had to speculate whether or not he wanted to do this for a day, even though the amount was only a $150 decision. Next, he said he would do it, but......
Do You Possess Star Quality?
Learn how to shine.
One of the hardest things to do when you suffer a setback is finding ways to rise above it. This is a crucial skill for anyone running a business. The nature of entrepreneurialism is that you are trying things you never tried before. In some cases, you may be trying something that......
Are You An Intentional Parent?
Progress, not perfection.
This week’s blog is written by my guest speaker, Nate Wagner, who will be presenting his seminar “Intentional Parenting” on April 22, 2021.
I believe all parents are on a journey. They are trying to figure out what works and what doesn’t in their family. Everyone is different. I have two young daughters age five and nine. I am a stay-at-home parent on Mondays and Fridays. This provided an opportunity for...
Where Is Your Sales Blind Spot?
How to strengthen it and overcome it.
Whether we want to admit it or not, all of us have blind spots — especially when it comes to sales. Perhaps yours has to do with picking up the phone and calling someone you don’t know. For many people, it’s what to do if you get a price objection. The vast majority of salespeople seem to struggle with actually asking for the order and closing a......
Honing Your Closing Skills.
Improve your closes and you will improve your sales.
One thing I learned from coaching salespeople is that many of them are very good at knowing what their products do and standing behind their products. They pride themselves on taking great care of their customers. Yet, one of the biggest failings most salespeople have is not asking for the order.
There is a natural fear of being rejected and many otherwise competent salespeople allow this fear to prevent them from asking for a sale. This is an enormous disservice to the prospect, especially one who desperately needs what you sell. If your customer doesn’t want what you sell, he or she will let you know. Often, it doesn’t mean they don’t want......
