Ground Rules for YOUR Business (and Life?)

Some business strategies to boost your income…

Ground RULES for Your Business
Ground RULES for Your Business

Do you need some effective “Business Ground Rules” or “Business Strategies?”

You might want to start with some Guidelines…. so here are some basic ground rules. I use this list for my clients and I recommend that you take this list and adapt it to your business (or future business!) Some of these apply to LIFE as well.

Trust Your Intuition 

Yes.  Trust your intuition in your business!  You haven’t gotten to where you are in life without at least starting to develop your intuition.

The fact is that inside of you, you already KNOW.

(It is an inside job!)

Keep developing that small voice that says.”Wait this doesn’t feel right” or “This new client and I are going to do great working together.”  Or you may even be thinking, “I need to move out of this job.  I hate it .”

Here is what I know to be the truth,  you can learn to develop that voice by slowing down, listening and by giving yourself space to hear your own voice.

Take It Seriously, But LOVE What You DO

Business is serious and you need to look at it for what it is.

BUSINESS.

That means treating it like a business, not a hobby.

Do what you do best!  Hire out the aspects of your business that you hate doing because frankly, it is a waste of you precious time doing something you hate doing.

Business strategies involve making money.

BUT and it is a big BUT… Love what you do. Do what you love. Make it work for you. “Believe you can and you will.”

Over Deliver and Give Great Value

Always and Always. Give what you believe your clients want AND Continue reading “Ground Rules for YOUR Business (and Life?)”

Coach Says “Stop Looking at Your Circumstances and Change Your Awareness!”

COACHING INSIGHTS

Coaching may create a GOLD BALLERINA FOUNTAIN for you.
The world is the abode of desires and fears. You cannot find peace in it. For peace you must go beyond the world.”

On some level we really get this.

On another level we deny it, because although we KNOW it to be true, we don’t want to think that the outer world we are currently experiencing is not our “Real Life.”  

As a Business Coach, Life Coach and Success Coach the subject inevitably comes up around successes in life and the TRUTH of the matter is it is AN INSIDE JOB.

We easily get caught up in ‘Appearances’ and think that what we see around us (our circumstances) are what is true.

Circumstances are just that.

Circumstances.

They come every day.

Day-after-day.

I believe that we are here to CHANGE.  To grow and to transform our lives.

If I didn’t…I wouldn’t be coaching!

Some fifteen years ago as I was completing my own COACH TRAINING I hired a Coach.

There were numerous Coaches that had been recommended, however I found myself trusting my intuition.

I hired THE BEST Coach I could afford at the time and the Coach that I felt that could expedite my growth as a new Coach!

It was one of the best investments in “Me” that I could have made.

In that process, I learned a lot.

So much in my life at that time was tied to “appearances.”  (We all want to LOOK good to others, right?)

As we see more and more of that in our world today, when I found this article about “Transcending Appearances” I wanted to share it with you!

Below are some “TIPS” from Dr. Wayne Dyer on Transcending Appearances.

#1  Let Go of Attachments

In silence, start to release your attachment to the importance of outer impressions. You might visualize yourself building a huge bonfire and imagine tossing things into the fire. Throw in your jewelry, clothes, automobiles, trophies, everything, even your job title. With each item that goes into this imaginary fire, feel yourself being freer and freer.

#2  Remove Labels Attached To Your life.

Make an attempt to describe yourself without using any labels. Write a few paragraphs in which you do not mention your age, sex, position, title, accomplishments, possessions, experiences, heritage or geographical data. Simply write a statement about who you are, independent of all appearances.

#3  Look For The Loving Presence In Others.

Take a day to attempt to see the fullness of God in everyone you encounter. Rather than seeing only another physical being, tell yourself that the Christ in me is meeting the Christ in you. Or spend a day silently reciting the word “love” whenever you encounter another human being. This has such a powerful effect that you may choose to use it as a silent background mantra throughout your day.

#4  Remember That You Build Muscles By Picking Up Heavier Objects.

This applies to your spiritual weight lifting, too. You will build yourself up spiritually by attempting tougher and tougher assignments. One of the toughest assignments is to disregard the ego message to evaluate yourself with the criteria of appearance and possessions. But know each time you are able to be less judgmental toward others or yourself, you are becoming stronger by having taken on the heavier spiritual weights.

#5 Cultivate YOUR calling.

Make an attempt to shift your career objective from self-absorption to a CALLING. That’s right, a CALLING. Use your talents and gifts to SERVE.   Your life work will take on a dramatic shift toward abundance, and you will feel on purpose and more of your true SELF.

(In order to make the changes you want to make quickly and with RESULTS consider HIRING A COACH.)

ARE YOU TRADING TIME FOR MONEY? It’s Your Mindset!

Invest in yourself, not someone else.

invest in yourself

Are you a person that is trading your time for money?  Invest in yourself instead.

I remember graduating from college. So excited about starting a career, all I thought about was trading my time for money. Back then, I had a lot of time. But not a lot of money.

Trading time for money.

What a great concept! Getting a salary every month sounded like the most wonderful thing in the world.

YEA … a paycheck! I would sit and think about how I could spend that money. You know. The “American Dream” (now known by some as the “American Nightmare”).

But I didn’t know what I didn’t know. I didn’t know that trading time for money was a limited concept. Meaning, I would not be in control of how much money I could make! I didn’t realize I could invest in MYSELF!

Fast forward several years. Continue reading “ARE YOU TRADING TIME FOR MONEY? It’s Your Mindset!”

I had just been introduced to the Wild World of Internet Marketing and I had gotten an invitation to an event in Atlanta. As a Life Coach/Breakthrough Coach I thought it would be an interesting learning opportunity~

And, I was offered a $1,000 FREE ticket!

Coaches…”Who is Checking YOU Out and WHY?

Coaches are being searched out by potential clients.

coaches are looking to you to help find clarity in your business.

Did you know people are”Checking You Out” On-Line?

Yes they are.

They are searching on Google, Facebook, Twitter or various other Social Networks.

Why?

They want to know more about YOU.  

Who you are.

What your business is?

Coaches, do they want to do business with you?

They may have seen or connected with you on Social Media and want to know more about you.

I had a friend of mine call me yesterday who is a real estate agent and she had gotten a contract on a property she represents and she said she had immediately pulled up Google to check out the buyer and with one click, she found information on the Buyer that gave her more of a sense of who she was dealing with.

You may have someone want to “Friend” you on Facebook and more than likely you may do the same…check them out.

Here’s the deal.

Your WEBSITE is your on-line “real estate.”

The same goes for your Facebook Business Page.

(More than likely you are sending your followers back to your website to learn more about you!)

The truth is that people want to get a real sense of who you are, what you are all about, what the real YOU cares about, your values and of course, your big Why!

The thing is ….people don’t want your formal resume or bio, they just want to connect with a real person, YOU.

And they want to get a sense of what you do and IF you can help them.
