Super Saturday Special!

What are our prospects thinking?

  1.  I only care about me.
  2.  I only care about my problems.
  3.  I don’t care about you.
  4.  I care even less about what you want to show me

Our human nature has a dominant program called, “Survival.”  Our brain’s first priority is to keep us alive.  We want to look for resources.  We want to solve our problems.

Does that mean people are selfish?  Sure.

To be interesting, we should talk about our prospect and our prospect’s problem.  If we do that, we will always have an audience.

When should we talk about what we want to offer?  Later.  First, let’s focus on our prospect and our prospect’s problem.  This makes it easy for both of us.

Are you struggling with finding the time to do it all?

I just listened to a fabulous FB interview with “A Busy Mom of 7” while she shared her tips for managing to juggle home life and building a thriving business!

If you are a mom and you’re struggling with business…

Or you’re struggling with, “What should I be doing this next year, 2019 through 2020?”

This is a great place to be … Jessica Higdon interviews Rosa Parma.

Rose is a super busy mom of 7 who is currently building a successful business.

They talk about the main areas that women (especially moms) really struggle with and how to overcome them.

Here are some highlights of the call:

  • Read “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie. [personal development]
  • Meal planning can save you and your family a whole-bunch of time & money. [redirect the energy]
  • Recognize that what you put into anything, [i.e.: bizz] you get returned doubled. [i.e.: resources]
  • My team was not duplicating until I made it easy for them. [simplify the system]
  • Success came into focus when I saw success around me! [forest thru the trees]
  • My positivity is contagious vs: ‘Oh Woah Is Me!’ [magnetic attraction]
  • Thankfulness and Gratitude fills me up and keeps filling ‘My Cup’. [so much to be grateful for]
  • Cannot separate Product & Business & People … just fits well … not forced. [reduces ‘mom’ guilt]
  • Money making activities ‘time blocked’ into my day! [customer/team appreciation & give-a-ways]
  • Don’t mess with mom’s coffee. [start my day and end my day with it]
  • I’m my own ‘best’ competition. [learned awhile back to not compare or blame others]
  • My kids are NOT my excuse … I keep promises w/ family. [respect ‘mommy at work’ now time!]
  • Never stop moving forward … growing vs: dying.  [find your opportunities]
  • I’m a night person, others are not.  I get a lot done in the evenings. [what are your power-hours?]
  • Before getting out-of-the-car after dropping the kids off at school … I make my calls and/or listen to my messages.
  • …cause I know once I get into the house … there are dishes!! laundry!!  snacks!!  vacuuming.
  • We sit down as a family and DREAM REALLY BIG!  [kids are part of the why]

Enjoy that interview … me too!  😉

Vehicle Advertising

Using your street smarts will put you on the road to success.  Here are just two quick examples from Harvey Mackay.

Paint your wagon.  Did you ever notice how many people happen to work in office buildings more than one-story in height?  And how many of these same people look out the window off and on during the day?  Why not paint your company name and logo on the top of your delivery vehicles or trucks?  It’s the easiest, least expensive and most neglected form of advertising.

Call on people on their birthdays.  I always make it a point to visit my customers on their birthdays.  If you can’t get to them personally, call or email them.  Send them a humorous, but tasteful birthday card.  Stress this tip with your salesforce.

This such a BIGGY of Harv’s…  You won’t believe how much business we write up on our customers‘ birthdays.  They are in a good mood.  Bring them a creative gift.  You are not buying their business, you are building a relationship.

I once figured out that I make approximately 300 phone calls a year to my customers and friends on their birthdays.  I always try to put a smile on their face by singing Happy Birthday in a humorous voice.

My reminder is, “To always be thinking … to always be taking action … to always be street smart.”

Good morning. Yesterday saw the latest Fed meeting.  As expected, the Fed had some nice things to say about how the economy was doing, and why all those rising prices and shrinking portion sizes at the grocery store were temporary.  But when it came to, say, pulling back on the billions of dollars per day of bond buying, the central bank once again punted on the issue, saying they were looking into it. This is a replay of its model from the last crisis.  Yes, the Fed will eventually scale back its bond buying, possibly even to zero.  And it

Good morning. Last week saw the stock market dive on rising Delta variants to Covid 19.  Yesterday saw a big drop, particularly for tech.  The reason?  A crackdown by China over a number of companies there. These drops are usually healthy, as they help curb speculation and keep traders on their toes, either by quickly turning profits into losses, or by creating new trading opportunities at a better value.  This summer’s market is starting to look like the summers in the mid-1990s when tech stocks would correct going into the autumn, only to end the year higher.  In the meantime,

Good morning. Trading is fun and exciting, and being able to leverage small short-term moves into big profits makes for a fun and profitable hobby, even with the occasional big loss to talk about.  But some of the best returns can come from taking a long-term position in a multi-year trend. In a special edition of Trading Tips today, we’ll be looking more in-depth at what’s set to be the biggest trend of the decade.  It’s potentially a $30 trillion market, far bigger than 5G, the Internet of Things, all the meme stocks combined, and even cryptocurrencies.  It’s changing the

Good morning. As much as Wall Street loves rumors, Washington DC is the major league.  The latest rumors are that Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell might not be nominated for a second term to lead the Fed.  While his tenure has been little different than his prior two predecessors given the crises he’s had to deal with, some progressives don’t think the Fed chair has done enough on income inequality and other matters. That could lead the White House to find a more radical leader for the central bank, potentially even one willing to embrace the latest economic theories such

Letting Go Of Guilt “Guilt can stop us from taking healthy care of ourselves.” –Melody Beattie Guilt is like a rock.  It sits in the pit of our stomachs and can weigh down our every thought, behavior, and action.  It can distract us all throughout the day and keep us awake at night.  Our muscles work overtime just to carry it around, and yet we still hold onto it. It’s imperative that we stop feeling so guilty. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t feel guilt.  True guilt is a loving instrument from Spiritual Guidance used to convict, correct, and confirm your

Good morning. Technology companies need to constantly innovate.  That results in a high amount of money being spent on research and development, which in turn helps keep a company’s taxes lower than a company that makes the same product year-in, year-out. So it’s no surprise that regulators are always on the lookout for ways to try and get more taxes out of these massive firms that often have little to no earnings.  One proposal is being floated for a new generation of technology: a space tax.  Or, more specifically, a per-passenger tax on space flights like the ones just completed
