It’s not about Religion

It doesn’t revolve around what religion is or is not!                                                             It is about what relationship you have with God!

How you run your business is not about having or not having religion in it. It is about carrying God in your heart and your relationship with him that puts God in your business.  If you carry God in your heart and you are striving to do business the way you know it should be done, you will prosper!

So many people are afraid to let God in when it comes to business because they are afraid that it will somehow deminish the amount of business they receive.

If you truly believe and know in your heart that God is blessing you, stand proud and shout to the world that you, your house and your business believe in God!  The possibilities are endless when it comes to the blessings God will bring to you when you go against the worldly ways and stand for what you believe in.

If a person doesn’t come to your business because you believe in God, no worry…God will bring you 10 who will!

Be blessed and stand proud and let the world know that you have the best products, the best customer service, the best deals and the best of the best when it comes to bosses.  God is the owner of my business and I work for Him. How about you?

Blessings!

How many times have you felt like this?

end_of_ropeHow many times have you felt like this when you are at work and dealing with people who keep yanking on the rope?

You know that you have to stay somewhat calm and keep your thoughts to yourself, but if one more person yanks you in a different direction …omg you are going to explode.  Because your at work you keep your mouth shut, of course you do, you don’t want to lose your job…right?

So what does that do for you when you get off work?  Are you the only one who wished you were someplace else? No! We all have days where we wish we were someplace else or that the world would disappear. It makes for a tense workplace that normally follows you home.  At home the spouse and the kids are usually the ones that you vomit your whole days pent up anger on. The ones you love who really don’t deserve your wrath, however they are suppose to understand when you have a bad day. You don’t mean anything by it and you can’t understand why they get upset.

Instead of letting the day, the month get to you, you need to find your voice and let those people know in the most respected and polite way possible, to back off.  It is not an easy task and you do the best you can, however when things begin to pile up, your get angry and it sends you into a sideways behavior.  Anger is just a surface reaction to a deeper fear.  (Please stop telling me BS, you know I’m right or you would be upset reading this) What fear are those people poking when they keep asking and coming in distrubing you while you try to get things done. Is it the fear of not good enough, or the fear of helplessness, or maybe the fear of failure because you can’t finish what everyone is throwing at you.

What can I do to not let this happen you ask? Well I’m glad you asked.

STOP and visual a PAUSE button when you feel the anger coming on. Take a deep breath and let it out slowly, this will change the pattern of what you normally do.  Practice it over and over until you disfuse the anger when everything is coming at you. Then, in a respectful way let the individuals know that you will have what they need in (specify time frame) and you will get it to them then. Also tell them that everytime they interrupt it takes time away from that time frame you gave them and once you have accomplished, then you need to prioritize the job duties and work from the top down. Next by looking at the time frame you will be able to let them know that they are (# ?) on the list and that you will begin their request at that time. This accomplished, you will find that your life is a little more at peace, your home life is a safehaven and your stress level is much lower than before.

A Pause Button is like the Easy Button you’ve seen on TV. It can simplify your life if you choose to use it as a tool for controlling the anger that crops up.

Let me know if you try it and the results. It may not work the first few times, however if you continue using it you will be amazed at the results.

Blessings

Build a Bridge to Build a Relationship!

I believe that you need to build a bridge to build a relationship!

People are worn out by all the bombarding they get.  Email, Phone, Cell, Text, Radio, TV, Social Media and even Networking Groups.

You can’t build a relationship if you are not willing to build the bridge first. The bridge represents common ground between two business owners. You need to know the person and the business before you can expect to build the relationship. Right!

Look at it like this… each plank you use to build the bridge is a piece of information, as you lay the planks you learn more about the person and their business and they are in turn learning about you and your business.

Once you have laid the last plank of the bridge and the gap is filled, you should have a solid relationship with the person and a good business relationship for years to come. But don’t stop there… The bridge is a work of art that is forever changing.  Keep laying the planks… Build a cover over the Bridge, make it a double decker… You are making a commitment to a lasting working and personal relationship with this company. Why stop at just a bridge?

This is truly what networking is about. It’s not about how many show up, it’s about building the relationship with the ones that do show up.

It is not quantity… it’s the quality.

Networking is not about you and you trying to sell, sell, sell

It’s about relationships and tell, tell tell. 

 

So when you shake the hand of a potential client, remember to build the bridge to build the relationship.

Have a Blessed Day!

Advertising Process

Advertising is the process of persuading potential customers to buy products or avail of services being offered to them. The process of advertising involves a variety of strategies. Effective and continuous advertising is one of the most important functions of any successful business. It is imperative that the products or services of any business receive the proper exposure, and the way to achieve exposure is through advertising.

Whether it is on the national or local level, advertising campaigns are necessary to let people know about a business and its products. The goal of marketing is to target the segment of a population who has a special need for a particular product or service and finding ways to provide that product or service in the most effective means possible.

Advertisements may appear in many forms, including newspaper and magazine ads, radio and television commercials, direct mail campaigns, and various other forms. With the emergence of brand recognition as a key factor in marketing and advertising, companies have entered into multi-billion dollar contracts with advertising firms to promote their products and services.

These efforts have led to products becoming integral aspects of popular culture. The function of advertising companies is to professionally promote individual businesses and organizations. Advertising agencies are dedicated to the development of the most innovative and effective means of business promotion.

Even if you can afford major companies like corporations use, there are smaller advertising companies that can help you roll out a plan. Look in your local community for one closest to you and talk to them. Don’t be afraid to test the waters, talking doesn’t cost you money, implementing the plan is what cost. Be sure you scope out all options when it’s time to advertise. And don’t spend all your money in one place. A good plan, no matter how big or how small, uses multiple venue’s of media to be seen and heard. Weigh your options and put a plan into place.

How do you advertise your business?
