Profit is Not a Dirty Word

No matter what business you’re in, you need to generate profit. … Decide that profitability is not a four-letter word. Decide to be as profitable as you can be. The foundation of a successful business is the ability to turn a profit by solving problems and curing pains. You’re in business because you have a skill or talent that can solve someone else’s problem. Because of that skill, you have the opportunity to create wealth for yourself by being profitable. There’s nothing wrong with that. As long as you play by the rules, don’t cheat,...

The Power and Freedom of Simply Being You

It is not uncommon for entrepreneurs to struggle with their “personal” brand versus their “professional” brand. This challenge has never been more apparent or even problematic than it is now due to the incredible rise of social media. … For better or worse, this is the world we live in. There is no hiding who you are.   DECIDE to be your authentic self – all the time. There should not be a personal brand and a separate “small business owner” brand.   The key is authenticity all the time and in every place.   The relieving part...

The Importance of Mindset

Mindset does play an important role in your success, so I want to touch on it and the importance of how your beliefs will shape your success. Without a doubt, your results are the product of your thoughts, and your thoughts drive your action or, in some cases, your inaction. As my personal mindset coach, Melanie Benson Strick has taught me invaluable lessons about mindset, so I’ll take a moment here to include her thoughts on mindset: First, let’s define mindset as a combination of the thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes that you hold about your...

Head Trash Will Hold You Back

Head trash is real, and left unchecked, it can be a real business crippler… or killer. The remedy is the same as if your kitchen trashcan were overflowing with garbage and “smelling up the joint.” The solution? Easy, take out the trash! Because the problem of Head Trash is pretty pervasive among entrepreneurs, I asked members of my Dream Business Mastermind to take a few minutes and share their stories of Head Trash so you will know that you are not alone in your own struggle.

Highly Successful Entrepreneurs DECIDE

Highly Successful Entrepreneurs DECIDE

When a decision needs to be made, you essentially have three options: “yes,” “no,” or “I’ll think about it.” The last option leads directly to Squishyville. As an entrepreneur, your ability to get more comfortable accepting and managing risk and making faster decisions will help you grow a more profitable business in less time. Highly successful entrepreneurs have an uncanny ability to see opportunity, assess a situation, quickly and deliberately consider the pros and cons, and then DECIDE and move on. They make a decision and act – one way...

Why You Need to DECIDE!

Why You Need to DECIDE!

Deciding and moving forward, and taking corrective action if necessary, is one of the main traits that separate ordinary entrepreneurs from highly successful entrepreneurs. Deciding is the one thing that can trigger success like nothing else. Confidence comes from success, and success comes from moving forward. And moving forward faster comes from the ability (and confidence) to make fast decisions and implement them. As you read my blog posts, books, and watch Newsletter Guru TV and listen to Stick Like Glue Radio, you can always count on me...

The power and freedom of simply being you.

It is not uncommon for entrepreneurs to struggle with their “personal” brand versus their “professional” brand. Or perhaps better stated: Who they are “on the job” versus who they are “off the clock” – so to speak. This challenge has never been more apparent or even problematic than it is now due to the incredible rise of social media. There is no hiding anymore. The truth is you can no longer have your “entrepreneurial” brand and a clear and separate “personal” brand that you wish or feel should be off limits and not used when a client or...

Give Your Business BIG Marketing Muscles With Social Media!

One of the many great benefits of social media marketing, particularly for entrepreneurs and small business owners, is that it allows them to play and compete on the same playing field as huge companies. You see, it doesn’t matter whether you’re a home based business or a multi-national corporation, everyone has access to the same 140 character Tweets on Twitter and everyone has the same ability to attract new clients with engaging blog posts! Another huge benefit is video marketing. Just a few short years ago you had to have very deep...
