Monday Book Review-Raving Fans

raving-fan

This book teaches you how to develop a group of people who would never think of going anywhere else but where you provide goods and services.  They are called Raving Fans! 

Here are the 6 lessons I received from reading this book:

  1. In life everyone has a choice of who they patronize.  Most people take for granted the relationship that people give to their money and how they spend it.  I think times are changing and people are more aware of where their money goes.  Personally I am trying very hard to shop at stores that stand for something and have good outreach programs to the community. I want to find doctors and service providers that know me and I am not just a number to them.  It does not matter if you spend 100 dollars or 100 million dollars per year, your money has value and you give to those who you believe should have it.
  2. Find out what you want.  When you go into business, decide what do you expect from staff, customers and even yourself.  Many times people don’t spend the time thinking about the feel of their business. I suggest you know what a person will experience when they use your services because your reputation will go ahead of you.
  3. Be human and admit if you make mistakes.  Sometimes you might not always get things right, take some time to find out how things when wrong and what you can do to make things better.
  4. Find out what the customers want.  It is so good to ask people from time to time, how you are doing in their opinion.  How can I make things better??  What makes you come to my store??  
  5. Be ready to deal with the answers.  Many times people will not give you the whole truth.  Tell people that you want to know their good and bad experiences.
  6. Deliver plus one.  When people tell you want that want give them that plus one.  Go above and beyond their desired results.  Always WOW people with your little extras.

Friday Movie Review-Collateral Beauty

Collateral_Beauty_poster.png

This movie was so good that I saw it 3 times in the last 2 weeks.  I love stories that touch your heart.  Here are the 6 lessons that I learned from the movie:

  1. The co-star stated 1/2 of the billings were built of his relationships.  Business is done based upon the relationships.  So many people offer so many things that the only way to conduct business is how you feel about someone.  This is true in every business from birth to death.
  2. Death can make you feel that life is not worth living.  No parent wants to bury their child.  During the time of grief, people can respond in a number of ways.  Sometimes it takes years to regain the day to day routine.  When my son died, I was numb for over 1 year.  I could not get the strength to believe in children again.  It was the most difficult time in my life.
  3. Time waits for you know.  You can’t control it.  It is truly a gift and we must be thankful for everyday that we get. Many people take time for granted. We always wish for more, but what if you decide today to think about living as though you will not get any more after today.  That would force you to work today like was your last.  It would force you to love to today like it was your last.  It would help you see time is not under your rule. 
  4. Love is the fabric of life.  We can’t choose who we love or who loves us.  Just be open to receive it.  Don’t push people out of your life if they love you, just love them back. You can change your life with a little LOVE.
  5. If you knew you were dying, would you tell anyone??  If your answer is no, that is not fair.  Give people a chance to say goodbye.  That is the right way to die.
  6. Collateral Beauty is all around us, we must open our eyes to see it. The older people will tell you when God takes something or someone he replaces it with something or someone else.  I my case I did not know 2 beautiful children would arrive after Adrian died.  I was able to move pass the grief and see the collateral beauty.  My prayer is you will always see the collateral beauty.

Desire!!!

desire

Desire–Do You Have It??  Do you desire a better life??  Do you desire a healthy body?? Do you desire a loving relationship?? Do you desire a bigger income?? Do you desire fame??  Do you desire a successful business??

All of these things are amazing to desire but usually after month and maybe years of our desires not showing up, we lose the desires we suddenly don’t want anything. Our fire goes out and we become unmotivated.

I want you go back to a time when you had a great desire for something.  How did you feel?? Could you sleep at night?? Did you have that constant movie playing in your head telling you that success is right there in your reach??

I believe that everyone has experienced a strong desire at some point in their lives.  We must decide to keeping the desire burning to achieve our desired result. You seek DESIRE is the first step in achieving a goal.  Do you really want the goal??  Many times people fall out of love because they let the desire burn out.  

If you want to keep the DESIRE in your life follow these 3 steps:

  1. Know what you want
  2. Make it a BURNING Desire
  3. Don’t quit until you get it

If you follow these 3 simple steps you can relight your: DESIRE!!

Monday Book Review-Strugglepreneur

struggle

This book has been a great read for anyone starting or managing a business.  Here are the 6 tips that I learned from the book:

  1. Struggle is optional.  Everyone in business do not find themselves struggling. Business is many times thrown together and items are overlooked.  You can have a thriving business if you do your due diligence.   Sometimes business can be the very best thing that has happen to your life.
  2. Know why you are struggling.  If you find yourself struggling in business, there is a reason.  It’s your duty to find out what is wrong so that you can fix it.  Some struggles are rooted in bad information given at the start of the business.  Take time to go back and fix those things that hinder you.
  3. You must plan for great results. If you keep your hand on what is going on monthly, weekly and daily, you can catch things before they become out of hand. If you plan for what you are going to do in the future some mistakes can be avoided.
  4. One of the quick fixes: Get a business address. Don’t use your home address for your business.  There are a variety of ways to get a business address.  Fix out what is the best option for you.
  5. Another quick fix: Get a virtual assisted phone number.  Technology has advance so much that now it is so easy to get a number to make sure your company is professional at all times.
  6. Final quick fix: Register your business with google maps.  This is another tip that helps legitimize your business.  Simple things that you can do to help your business.

FRESH START!

fresh-start

It’s January 2017, are you ready for your FRESH START???  One of the greatest lessons that I learned in 2016 is nothing stays the same and everything will change.  Even if we hope and pray and ask God to help us, sometimes the answer is no and we must learn the lessons that is being given to us.

If you spend too much time thinking about the past and how good things were, you will find yourself in a depression mode. I can guarantee you if you JUST GET UP and GET GOING, things will change for you.  If you just have some faith that things will get better, your life can turn around and you can live the life of your dreams.

A fresh start, a new breath of air and a renewed mind is all you need to make 2017 the year of your dreams.  Will you commit to be great?  Will you do things differently??? Join me in having a FRESH START.

Monday Book Review-Stuck in Neutral

stuckinneutral.jpg

This book was excellent.  Here are my 6 lessons that I took away from the book.

  1. Without God you will spend your entire life stuck!.  The principles shared in the book really give you insight on what happens when you go it alone without God’s will being followed in your life.
  2. With confidence anything is possible.  Many times in life we allow the down times to take away our confidence.  When we build our confidence everything in our life gets better.  Spend some time learning how to grow your confidence in life.
  3. Be thankful!!  One of the greatest prayers of our life is thank-you.  Cortney does a great job explaining that humility breed attitude and gratitude breeds humility. So many people go thru life with an entitled mindset.  I think people don’t really understand what they have.  I believe if everyone had to visit or live in a 3rd world country, they would return so thankful for everything they have obtained.
  4. No Sacrifice-No Success! Wow this point was tough to really think about because in this microwave society that we live in, it seems like success is given to people overnight.  I know everyone pays a price but social media can make it look like opportunities fall into the right hands everyday.  We have to be so careful that we don’t compare ourselves to anyone who looks like they got it all. You have no ideal what they have went thru to have it all.
  5. Make Adjustment-Not Excuses–Clever!!! I which everyone in the world would put this in their vocabulary and their mindset.  If we just did some adjustments to the plan and watched how things change.  We could conquer so many issues.
  6. Appreciate your haters.  This ideal is so true because in life the haters keep you on your toes.  You find yourself always attempting to get better everyday because someone might have said something that was negative about you.  Haters are truly motivation to do better work every day. 

Cortney Westbrook is a great entrepreneur that I had the privilege to meet in November 2016 at the http://www.ilovebusinessconference.com.  He is new to Dallas and has great plans to network and grow his business in the area.  his Up Together Empowerment Conference is coming up on July 13 & 14, 2017 and I encourage you to join me there.  Check out more information at: http://www.uptogetherconference.com

What’s your 2016 PRESENT???

secret-santa

If you want to give yourself the best gift for 2016, start to BELIEVE in yourself and your decisions.  I want you to spend some time asking God to give you a clear direction for 2017.

Don’t end 2016 without a plan of action for 2017.  If you FAIL to PLAN, you PLAN to FAIL!!! Don’t worry about the particulars, work on the huge goals and seeing yourself obtaining the goals.  In your mind, see what you are wearing, see the shoes you will have on when  you complete the goal.

When you start to act in confidence, that goal can’t do anything but come to you.  If you have the confidence that you can make it, you will make it!  Your confidence will keep you going toward your goal.  You will work with conviction because you know that you will win.

Are you going to give yourself a 2016 PRESENT???

Movie Review-Almost Christmas

almost-christmas

This movie was so good, I saw it twice.  If you can get past the profanity, the story is really inspiring.  Here are the 6 lessons I received from the movie:

  1. Holidays should inspire families to come together.  Most families try to meet up and visit during the holidays.  Sometimes this can be a good thing and other times it can bring up some bad memories.  Either way family should be able to accept the past and move forward.
  2. Things are not always the same when you return home.  Many times the holidays are a source of sorrow and pain due to the loss of a loved one.  This is very near and dear to me, because my own mom loved thanksgiving and during that time, I feel extremely low and grief more than normal.  
  3. Test your memory.  Many times when we see old friends, we might have a different version of something that went wrong.  Sometimes we carry a lie around that is totally false.
  4. Every job is not a good fit.  A politician truly has to know what is at stake when he/she decides to run and represent various donors.  The press has a way of taking a story and giving a false perception of the politician.
  5. It never gets old doing good.  If you have a person that feels a need to help others by all means help.  Never give up your efforts to help others.
  6. Angels do watch over you.  You never know how angels will show up and guide you to a better place.  Some angels are there to protect you and some angels just watch. Either way I am so glad that angels watch over me.

Monday Book Review-What It Takes To Be Number One

number-1

This book is a short but powerful book.  Vince Lombardi identified 9 skills/attributes you need to be number 1 in sport, business or life in general.  They are: 1. Commitment; 2. Discipline; 3. Excellence; 4. Mental Toughness; 5. Habit; 6. Faith; 7.Passion; 8. Results; and 9. Truth.

The 6 lessons I gained were as followed.

  1. Winning is not everything, but making an effort to win is everything.  This hit me like a ton of bricks because I can thing of the times that I have given up on something because it was too hard or I did not see success coming.
  2. You  must be smart to be number one in any business.  I totally agree that business is not for the weak in heart, you must smart to progress in business.
  3. Mental toughness will allow you to hold on when you are on E.  When you feel like you can’t give any more then your mental toughness kicks in.
  4. Success has a price.  Most people are not willing to pay that price.  Many see it too high to obtain that success.  What most people don’t expect is you must continue to pay the price to KEEP your success.
  5. The harder you work at something, the harder it is to surrender.  When you put your ALL in something, you keep trying!!!
  6. Results are the bottom line.  I know it can be difficult to realize when something is not going well, but I have learned in the last 11 year–NUMBERS NEVER LIE!!!

If you desire to be NUMBER ONE–READ THIS BOOK!

ul read.  Vince Lombardi identifies 9 things that everyone
