5 Ways To Get You And Your Sales Out Of A Slump…Fast!
Admin Text-Only Editing - Text Only Admin

I was visiting with a friend of mine recently and when I asked her how business was, she replied, “Slow!” Her clients were either out of town, hadn’t rescheduled for missed appointments or had simply drifted away.

Businesses are no different than the people who run them. They have moods, cycles and rhythms that, if properly recognized and honored, can help you maintain momentum even when you may not be bursting at the seams with new business.

I’m sure you believe that everyone has something of value to contribute… perhaps a thought, a suggestion, or a vision. That one of the best ways to determine if you’re headed on the right path is to bounce ideas off others, or that a successful business owner knows that a multi-faceted team is the best source for continued growth?

But, do you know that many business owners employ people with similar ideas, values and beliefs? Or, that someone who has absolutely nothing in common with you can provide you with truly invaluable information, resources, insights, or inspiration? We all know that no man is an island, and in both life and business this is so very true; but it is whom we have on the island with us that can be paramount.

3 Simple Tactics For A Client Conversion System Uncovered
Admin Text-Only Editing - Text Only Admin

One of the best time-saving strategies I’ve implemented is my client conversion system.  You know the drill; a potential client comes along and emails/calls you asking about your services.  You spend time responding, maybe even putting a detailed proposal together, and then you never hear from them again!  Not even a thank you for your email!

This is one area that’s a huge time drain for solo service professionals, but one that is so important – you need paying clients so you have to spend time responding to them.

SUCCESS: Manifesting What You Want
Admin Text-Only Editing - Text Only Admin

What does it mean to manifest? What was the first thing that popped into your mind? Was it ‘to create, to come to be, to bring to reality?’ Close. The definition is: ‘clearly apparent to the sight or understanding!’ Did you know that an infinite number of things are manifested every day? That’s right! Each thought, each vibration, each feeling or belief manifests a response. Be it positive or negative, good or bad.

Article Marketing – Re-using Old Articles
Admin Text-Only Editing - Text Only Admin

I was asked a question recently about re-using your articles…

Are you using the articles you write in your ezine and posting the article on your blog? It’s been recommended to do this, but I’m a little torn.

My response to this - a resounding ‘Absolutely!’. This is exactly what I do; in fact I use my article whenever and wherever I can as many times as I need to. Just so that my subscribers don’t feel cheated, the very first time I publish a brand-new article is to my ezine list, so they get to read it first! Thereafter it goes on my blog, I link to it from my website, I submit it to various article directories etc. etc.

Want to Quickly Create a Miracle in Your Business?

Then you “gotta let go to let something in.” Here’s a quick tip on how… Every week, I ask the members of my Success Circle Coaching Club a series of powerful questions to keep them focused, motivated and stretching the limits of what they think they can do (believe me, we’re ALL capable of more with the right coach!).

The best question I save for last, and it’s “What is ONE thing you can let go of?”

Sounds simple.

But what makes this question so powerful is it sparks you to take a good look around you and see with new eyes, what you are holding on to that is actually holding you back.

Hot Women, Cool Planet

I love this idea…women gathering together to support change…to be the change we want to see.  I had the priviledge of seeing Margaret Wheatley speak last year and she said that the biggest potential for change is with women in leadership.

We have the potential to stand up and own our leadership and explemplify embracing the masculine and feminine energies….and give this world what it is so desperately crying for!  (I’m not making a political endorsement here, by any means.  That’s a conversation for a different blog!)

Building a Service Business is All About Building Relationships
Terri Zwierzynski - The Solo-CEO: Content Marketing Strategist

People buy from those they know and trust. Establishing a trust relationship with your potential clients takes time, but it is well worth the effort!

Think about the last time you bought a service from someone new, that had a substantial positive impact on your work or life in some way. If you were spending a good chunk of change (and perhaps investing a good bit of your time) on that purchase, chances are you did some research first:

So, how do you keep track of those all-important pieces of information that you come across daily?  Create a Resources Folder!
