It has been said that networking with strangers can be seen as wasting your time. Effective networking is all about building relationships so start slowly and work up. Why? A friend of mine was complaining, “I’m doing 2-3 networking events a week – and I’m worn out.” I then asked why they felt doing so much networking was important and they replied, “One of my marketing goals is to do at least 1 networking event a week.” I then told them that their goal was just 1 each week, so why do more than that? The point is to build business relationships and gain trust. This means less is better, rather than Continue reading

With all the distractions around these days, it’s too easy to lose focus on what you have to do or complete your tasks on time. There are times when life seems to “get in the way”. Then the negative factors kick in. There’s not enough time. I am working too hard with no end in sight. I Can’t DO IT!!!
I can relate to this a lot recently. I do quite a lot of things anyway, but recently there have been weddings for 2 of my sons and my mother fell and broke her hip. This led to me going to the hospital nearly every day as well as helping to care for my elderly father. Don’t get me wrong, these things I NEED to do, but when you’re focused on getting business stuff done, these distractions are a real Continue reading
Everyone needs to have a dream. A dream that encourages them to work hard to achieve it. The problem we have is the limitations other people put on us or we put on ourselves and we won’t accept that impossible is just a word. Who has the right to say “you will never be like whoever” or that is “just a pipedream”? It’s your dream and only you have the right to go for it or to give up. The dream you have requires action, not limitations or criticism by people who don’t share your own vision. If everyone worked with limitations, there would never be a new world record, any gold medal would never be won and big business people with high influence would never exist.
Sometimes we need a little creative thinking to come up with solutions to problems. If you’re like me, you will always work on the premise that there is not a problem, but there is a solution. The thought process of knowing there is always a solution triggers that creative thinking to be able to come up with that seemingly elusive solution.
How many times have you found yourself thinking there will be no other solution to a problem? You even think that problem leads to a dead end! How many times have you been stuck and believe the problem in front of you is Continue reading

Your attitude to work and to life will have a really big impact. We’ve all heard the glass half full or glass half empty way of looking at things. Both are the same thing in practice, but can also have a completely different meaning and depend on the right attitude to your action in getting what you want from life. You have the ability in you to achieve anything you want to, but you may not yet realize it. If your attitude is positive, negative or somewhere in the middle, you really can take control of your life and set yourself free! Everyone has potential and it’s time Continue reading
They say “It takes two to tango”. Well, it also takes at least two to argue. It’s not possible to have an argument with someone if there is no reaction. My advice is don’t argue. If you need to find solutions to create a win/win outcome, then arguing isn’t going to serve you. The best way to reach a reasonable and acceptable outcome is to ask questions.
In coaching it’s normal to encourage people to ask questions so the other person can hear the potential solution in their own words. It’s said that coaches don’t ask questions to hear the answer themselves, but Continue reading

Despite this, a lot of people believe that abundance, wealth, or chances to succeed in life are very limited. What is even worse Continue reading
Success is a journey and finding your own road to success is important. Although we can follow other great leaders in the way they achieved, success could so easily be aligned with the “genie trapped in a bottle” scenario. To follow that thought, success could simply be finding a way to open that bottle, and then following a specific path. Of course, this path is filled with pitfalls and traps all along its route, so it’s a good idea to learn all you can and expand your vision as you move along.
For many people, achieving Continue reading
