How long does it take for your potential customer to decide they want to buy from you? 💡 The past year has taught us all a lot, including that having a magnetic online presence for your business is not an option, it's a MUST. The problem is, it's a whole new world. From content marketing, funnels, posts that convert, which platform works best for what, and more. If you're like me and have a lot of questions, have a listen to this conversation with content marketing strategis
The problem isn't what other people will think of you. The real issue is: Have you developed a thick skin? says Brimstone What's your process for dealing with harsh criticism? I have to admit this is a work in progress for me, but I'm definitely better than I was as a new bright eyed entrepreneur. Harsh feedback is rattling to the core especially when you don't expect it. I believe it's a necessary evil though (😅), to force us to justify our position even if it's just to our

The words you use might be doing you more harm than you realise. Jenny Toh, Founder of @riverlifecoaching, says our choice in words shift our energy. One of Jenny's tips: replace "I will try" with "I commit to". Can you feel the shift in energy? We often give ourselves a way out before we even begin something new. #SelfSabotage and #SaboteurVoices are real! Create an environment for success by changing your language. As a man thinks in his heart, so he is. Check out the full
If going the extra mile in business isn't going to cut it, how do you get through a whole extra marathon? I've never run a marathon, but I was listening to a new marathon runner saying she almost didn't finish. It made me think of the journey of being a new entrepreneur, so many of us quit along the way. Despite months of training, she says it wasn't enough preparation. Can you relate? Midway through the marathon she was literally out of her mind, and if it had not been for h
You can only grow in proportion to your environment. Shawn Harpers says, understand the laws at work and use them to your advantage. How do you create an environment for expansion and growth? For me, understanding that there's always a better way of doing things leads me to seeking out people who exhibit that better way. Change is uncomfortable, but if you're not getting uncomfortable regularly you just may not be growing as much as you could. What about you? Shawn Harper is
Don't fear failure, embrace it!, says Tom Reaoch Overcoming fear of failure is priority #1 for an entrepreneur or aspiring entrepreneur. Understand that you are going to fail over and over again in your journey as an entrepreneur. If you're not failing then you're not trying anything new. And innovating as an entrepreneur is critical. What worked yesterday doesn't work today and definitely won't work tomorrow. Part of growing 1% better in how we do business simply means we ha

This is the ultimate work smarter not harder quote (for me). "Give me six hours to chop down a tree, and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe." ~ Abraham Lincoln I have found that the list of things to do is always long and growing, but the tasks that are critical to business success are very few. It boils down to the 80/20 rule, 80% of the results will come from 20% of the work. The first task is then identifying the 20%. But even after identifying the big results
"Imperfect action beats perfect inaction every time." ~ Harry S. Truman. Let that sink in. You're steps ahead by just taking action. The only way to learn in business is by doing. This has been supported by the many incredible guests we've had on the podcast. Stop worrying about the opinion of a person who isn't taking any action in their own life. Every time we start something new there's a learning curve. Allow yourself to learn the game, and master the process. Become a sa
Feeling stuck? I've been there more times than I'd like to admit. There have been long periods of time where I just didn't know what to do. I was stuck! Looking back though, I realise that my problem wasn't that I didn't know what to do as much as it was that I had not decided what it is that I wanted to do. I thought the answer was somewhere out there. A new job, a new course, a new city....can you tell it all had to do with something "new". The truth is the answer was alway
Begin a conscious journey of MASTERY. Forget what should have happened by now! Spending all your energy being critical of the position you are in today isn't going to change anything. It's only going to drain you emotionally, mentally, and physically of all the energy that you could be using to drive your life in the right direction. So, you wanted to be great by now, and it hasn't happened the way you pictured it??? It's natural human instinct to desire to be extraordinary
We all know what we need to do, and even more importantly what we are capable of doing. We just need to muster up the courage to do it! I know it's frightening to walk down an unfamiliar path 🤚🏾(Been there!) You don't know if it will work out. What if it doesn't work out and you look like a total fool? What if you think it's God sending you and it's not? What if it's just a random thought and not a vision? Who lives their dreams anyway? We all have these racing thoughts t
Rewire your thinking around failure. The fear of failure is a very real force that robs many of their destiny. This is not going to be us! Any time you try something new, expect that you might fail. Not because you are dull or incompetent; but because this is something you've never done before. It's just that simple! Logic escapes us when we decide to sit in our feelings. Picasso wasn't painting famous artwork the first time he held a paint brush. Thomas Edison wasn't making
