When Your Selling isn't Gelling

You're really NOT in a productive business if you are not selling anything. Even a not for profit, must "sell" it's benefits to contributors in order to fund raise. For any business, whether with a product or service, to be successful it must make sales and when that selling isn't gelling, there is a problem.

Sometimes the problem is obvious; maybe the business owner really isn't visible, available or promoting a business that is easy to access, maybe the business is…

The Most Important Rule to Remember When Climbing

Several weeks ago my buddy took me on a 12 mile journey over the river and through the woods and to the top of the mountain we went!  I was only going to be there for a few days, so he really wanted me to experience a fantastic climb that led us through a part of the Rocky Mountains all the way to Sky Pond.  It was such an incredible journey for me even though I was exhausted and sore the following week.  As we got closer to the waterfall in the picture above, he stopped me…

Don't Let Phantom Failure Derail You

As a coach, I've worked with some awesome clients. They are talented, motivated, and eager to learn. They understand that the benefits of success can't be realized unless they accept the possibility of failure. In many situations, they've tasted failure to some degree. But they don't let that hold them back. Like my clients, we would be naive to ignore the possibility of…

The ONE Thing Holding You Back From Success

“Oh, I could never do that because I don’t know enough.”  “I don’t have enough money.”  “I don’t know anyone.”  Those are statements that I had uttered for the past 8 years.  The thrill of starting a business and breaking out on my own had always been a strong desire for me, but I always came up with an excuse for why I never seemed to be successful in any of them.  I had convinced myself that I was just a “jack of all trades but a master of none.” 

Have you ever felt that way?  I…

How many people are you carrying?

People were all eager to join you to create a spectacular event or develop a joint venture, or partner on a project. So now you’re ready to move and … nothing.

Your emails and phone calls go unanswered for days. You ship off materials and drafts and what do you hear? Crickets. And more crickets.

Deadlines come and go with no submissions or comments. The eager beavers have become dead weight, slowing your pace, dragging you down. WTH?

What happened?…

Start thinking about the dentist’s drill.

Sorry, didn’t mean to make you cringe. But there is a reason I want you to think about hearing that drill rev up and then think about how it sounds as the dentist starts applying it to your tooth. The pressure, the sound, the way you take deep breaths to get through it.

Oh yeah, baby.

Now that you’ve got that feeling settled on you, I want to share that you can change how you feel about that ol’ drill.

We have LEARNED and PRACTICED that awful feeling. And we can…

Three Truths About Yesterday's Thoughts

We have somewhere between 50,000 and 70,000 thoughts per day. That averages out to 35 to 48 thoughts per minute. According to researchers, about 95% of our thoughts are repeated daily. That represents our mindsets. So, only about 5% of our thoughts have the possibility of challenging our mindsets. It's five against ninety-five. The odds are on the side of our established mindsets.

Your mindset is the power plant for…

Why You Need a Side Hustle and How to Get Started

Side hustle. Hobby business. Part-time freelance work. These are all different phrases used to describe the same thing. I happen to like side hustle because it encapsulates the essence of what's required to achieve success—hustle. Hustle means to move or work in a quick and energetic way. We hustle when we are passionate about something.

My side hustle hasn't always been the same thing.…

Driving to Success

Do you remember learning how drive? You probably started by observing your parents or others driving. Then you may have taken Driver’s Ed in school. You read the text book and the official driver’s manual for your state. You took your test for your learner’s permit. You watched videos in class. Then you actually got into the car with your instructor and started driving. You practiced driving in town and on the highway. You learned how to parallel park. Then you went to the Department of…

Success or Failure — You Decide

According to an article in the New York Times, the average income of the top 20% of wage earners increases 11% per year. At that rate, they double their income every six years. Meanwhile, the average income of the bottom 80% of wage earners increases only 3% per year. What causes the difference between financial success and mediocrity?

In his book, Get Smart, Brian Tracy says the difference between people in the top 20% and the bottom 80% is their commitment to…

Everyone at some point has a dream. For many that dream is to start their own business. But, statistics show that less than 36% of people with that dream actually go through the steps to earn their living as an entrepreneur.

Seems like a lot of people talk about their dream but that talk really is CHEAP because Business Talk (talking about starting a business) will never make you any money.

Sharing your thoughts about starting a business is not a bad idea but simply sharing…
