Maybe It’s Time to Do It Differently

Today, while driving to a meeting with a colleague, I stopped for a red light. Glancing over to my right, what should I see but a large person/cow (actually, a person wearing a cow costume) enthusiastically waving at me.
 I waved back.
 It made me laugh out loud!
The “cow/person” was advertising for Chik Fillet. His signs read: Have You Ever Tried Chikn for Breakfast? Now Serving Breakfast! Eat More Chikn!

3 Great Questions to Ask Yourself to Create New Sales

One of my all-time favorite books is Napoleon Hill’s Think & Grow Rich.  It is absolutely a classic and a must read.  Hill wrote the book in 1922 during hard economic times.  One important point he made was that regardless of the state of the economy, in fact because of a poor economy, many people thrive and prosper because they “see” things differently.

Nip Negativity In The Bud When Talking About Your Business

“So, Diana,” clients ask, “what should I say when people ask me how my business is, when in all honesty, it’s a bit lackluster in sales right now?” Speak confidently and from the heart about the Value you have to offer, share stories of satisfied customers and information about your newest product. Keep your conversation rooted in the positive!

I was recently at a networking event and while one of the business owners was giving her “introductory elevator speech”, she ended up talking about how expensive gas is, how it’s affecting her delivery costs, etc., etc.  Business is slow, people aren’t buying.  She’s got a great service, yet this fact was completely overridden by her personal angst. Unfortunately, what we were left with was the impression that her business isn’t doing well.  It’s just not a great way to attract new customers.

How to Keep Your Dream Alive

Lets face it, motivational books and seminars are great. They reenergize us; boost our attitudes and our productivity….for a few days… tops! Then the “cold, hard ‘reality” of everyday living sets in, clients drop off, the economy takes a nose dive, our spouse is grouchy, and we lose our zest for our work and sometimes our personal lives, too.

Want to know why your “sizzle” fizzles?

Here are the TOP 3 REASONS that your DREAMS ARE DYING ON THE VINE and what to do about it!

You Don’t  Know What You Want – What are your dreams and goals? Are they crystal clear? Probably not! For the vast majority of people their dreams are fuzzy, misty concepts of what they’d really like in their lives. Statistics bear this out. If you take a group of 100 people, approximately 2 out of the 100 will actually achieve their goals! This is depressing, isn’t it? It’s so important to have a “blueprint” of your dreams and goals. With a plan, you can take action! With action, you’ll get results!
Negative Thinking – The biggest obstacle to you achieving the successes you dream of is YOU! Yes, sad but true. It is said that we have thousands and thousands of repetitive thoughts that run through our minds every day. Unfortunately, a high percentage of those thoughts are negative, definitely not helping us to create what we really want. Find a way to delete these dream-busting thoughts. I teach my clients an easy technique called EFT, which helps to reduce the negative mind chatter to positive thoughts.
Lack of Proper Support – To create remarkable results in your life, you need the right “success” environment. This includes like-minded people, books and programs that are in alignment with your goals, aspirations and dreams. You don’t need to “fire” your friends and family, but you may want to broaden your network to include people you admire and who inspire your greatness.

To Your Success,
