Networking In An Effective Way

networking in an effective way is smartIt 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

Why Your Life Journey Matters.

building your journey through life and following the pathEvery one of us has our own life journey. It’s a personal thing that often has too many people trying to influence. The outside influence is all around us. Why is it that all we hear about is bad news? Bad news accounts for a miniscule part of the news as a whole, but all we seem to hear about is murder, bombings, terrorism and the like. Why is that? I think it’s to drive fear into all of us so we comply with the control that is “invisible” all around us. We never really know the power of what we can achieve until we let go of this and set out our own life path.

The control can be as simple as people setting limits on us. Education systems in the past (and maybe even now in some circumstances) limited the expectations of certain pupils. What kind of message does that send out? It promotes Continue reading

Impossible Is Not What It Seems – It’s Just A Word

impossible is no more than just a wordEveryone 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.

Nearly everyone has big dreams and great aspirations based on our own passions and interests. Unfortunately, in so many Continue reading

The Benefits Of Starting Local To Build Authority.

Go LocalWhatever your business, I’ll bet you have a local market for your product or service as well as a wider and more intense one. If you have an online business, this is still relevant despite the opportunity to “spread your wings”. You need to build authority into your web presence and there is no better place to start than from a local perspective.

When targeting your market, focusing on local clients can help because you need leads and local leads are more accessible to you. In fact, marketing your website to your locality is an opportunity that you should never miss. People think that having a website, or a web presence on social media is the way Continue reading

Dare To Be Unique, There’s Nobody Like You!

It's important to be you and a unique you at that!There’s no need for you to impersonate anyone; they already exist. Do you want to be like your friend or colleague? WHY? It’s important for you to be unique! Even identical twins (or triplets etc.) are unique in their own particular way. You are not a direct copy of anyone. You are YOU. If there were meant to be more than one of you, it would create Continue reading

A World Full Of Infinite Opportunities

there are endless and infinite opportunities available to all of usThese days, if you have a vision, there are infinite opportunities to make a real difference. It doesn’t matter if it’s a business idea, or something else, the chance of helping people and providing an endless supply of opportunity for them to make their mark is better than ever!

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

Is It Wise To Convince And Sell?

is it best to convince and sellNone of us like selling, but so many of us have to. The question that is on my mind for this post is one that is relevant for most circumstances. Is it really wise to “convince and sell” or is it better to just sell to people who truly WANT what you have to offer rather than trying to convince them they want it?

This “convincing” is fed by desperation. How often do you see or hear “buy my stuff” or “join this fantastic money maker” or “you NEED this”? So many are DESPERATE for a sale. Too many people have the message you NEED this or that shiny object and this is where to get it. Why is this? Because they have not Continue reading

Knowledge Comes From Experience

experience leads to knowledgePart 9 of 10 based on the principles of the great Albert Einstein.

Einstein’s own thoughts on knowledge can be based on his quote:

“Information is not knowledge. The only source of knowledge is experience.”

Not sure if I agree 100%, but experience leads to the vast majority of knowledge. In my own experience, I have found this to be true to a very high Continue reading

Repetition Is Both Good And Bad.

being repetitive is good and badPart 8 of the series based on the 10 main principles of Albert Einstein. In this post I will discuss repetition and why it can be both good and bad. Good is great, but bad is something to beware of and so easy a trap to fall into.

Einstein had a philosophy around this and thought it as:

“Insanity – doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

Of course, this is based around the “bad” side of repetition and this should be avoided. Of course, it’s a very easy trap to get caught in and can lead to frustration and Continue reading
