Monday Book Review-42 Rules of Marketing

42-Rules-Of-Marketing-SDL331301400-1-add5d

This was a good marketing book with multiple tips to help a business person market their business.  Here are the top 6 tips that I learned:

  1. Rules are meant to be broken.  If you spend time following marketing gurus, you will find that most of them make up rules that work for them.  I have learned what worked for them, may not work for you.  You must be willing to break the rules.
  2. Marketing must result in sales.  I have tried so many things to market my business. What I have realized if it does not cause someone to sign up or purchase, it was not a good ideal.  Please try various things but be willing to cancel the marketing if nothing results because of your marketing.
  3. Be consistent.  It’s so easy to try something one time.  The magic happens when you do something over and over and you get known for that thing.  If you want to be known for your work, do it consistently.
  4. Develop your own rules to follow.  No one can explain or make people understand like you do.  While you are watching others succeed, define success for yourself.  Decide how you work best, it must good for you.  You must give yourself the permission to change the rules to meet your needs and help you find your success.
  5. Visibility is key.  You must be seen if you truly want to make a difference in the world.  If you are the BOMB and no one knows, you will BLOW up by yourself!
  6. Make them laugh!  Laughter is so important.  It is one of the best ways to get people to get comfortable with you.  When you get people comfortable with you, they will listen to you.  When they listen, your important information is digested by them and it allows them the opportunity to join you or buy from you.  Spend time making people laugh.

Go and read this book and watch your marketing grow: 42 RULES OF MARKETING.

Friday Movie Review- A Dog’s Purpose

adogspurpose

This movie was very good and I was quite surprised.  Here are the 6 lessons I learned from the movie:

1.Have fun everyday.  The dog longed to have fun by playing with the owner.  Take time to have some fun everyday even if it is just minutes per day.

2.Sometimes the fun leave your life.  It’s during these times that we gain great clarity.  When the fun leaves us it forces us to get bitter or better.  Which will you choose?

3. Be here NOW.  I think most of you know that I truly believe you can not wast 1 minute of your life.  This statement  rings true on so many levels!!  Resolve you will be here NOW–Get in the present and stay in the present.

4. The worst thing is being ALONE.  Sometime syou are alone because you desire to be alone.  Other times you are ALONE because of separation due to death, divorce or a decision to split.  Find out how much aloneness you desire and fill your life with the people you love.

5. Our purpose might change.  It so interesting to see as I get older things that I thought made a huge difference to me, now are not that important.  I really see the reason why our purpose might change, it’s because we change.  We never stay the same and our thought and intelligence changes as well.  So accept the changes that you presented daily.

6. You can find true love.  Some people find love early in life and live happily ever after and other people might find it later in life.  Either way just find your TRUE LOVE!

Follow Your Mentors!

I had the privilege of seeing my mentor Les Brown in the Dallas area in a DIFFERENT format.  

It was a blessing and a lesson for me to do that which I love to do because things might change in your life and you must always be ready.  Enjoy this different side of Les Brown.

Failure

Failure–What comes up in your mind when you hear this word???  I have gotten very familiar with this word in the last few years.  What I have found is that many times, new successes come out of the failure you experience.

Failure is somewhat like beauty–it truly lies in the eyes of the beholder.  The definition of failure can be extremely strict or extremely lenient.  What I have found is most of the times, we are more hard on ourselves than others.  So when something does not go right for us, we immediately call the situation a FAILURE.  We must learn to give ourselves more room to make mistakes.

So if you want to be fair–judge your success on standards you would give to another person.  Don’t make your rules so difficult that it is impossible for you to win.   Give yourself a break. 

Make sure you have the right definition of FAILURE!

Monday Book Review-Ish

ish.book.jpg

This is little book was so profound! Here are the 6 lessons that I learned:

1.Do you have a hobby you like to do?? Ramon loved to draw.  See what skill you enjoy doing and it brings you joy.

2. Do you “buckle” when someone dislikes what you are doing??  It’s not easy to take a hit from someone when you feel like you are doing your best. We can’t allow anyone to derail us from our goals.

3.People are watching you. As you go about day to day, you would be surprised who is looking at what you are doing. People that you would not except to support you, are many times wishing you well.

4. Your trash is another person’s treasure.  We might see the value in everything that we are doing.  Be willing to take a compliment.  Look for the good in yourself and others.

5. Ishly allows your ideals to flow freely.   When you stop worrying about things being perfect you can relax and be creative.

6. Some things can’t be captured, simply savored.  Guess what you might not always win.  You might not end up on top.  We must know that the answer can be YES or LEARN.  

Awesome thought provoking book to challenge you, go get: ISH

Book Review-Pure Deception

pure-deception

This book was AMAZING!  Here are the 6 lessons I gained from the book:

  1. Your dreams can be derailed.  Amanda thought she had it “ALL”.  She had the man of her dreams-an accomplished Oncologist, a handsome son and a house many would long to occupy.  Amanda would not ever imagine that her life would go from “DREAM” to “NIGHTMARE” after years of marriage. In a blink of an eye, Amanda was living a nightmare that she had not prepared for and her future looked bleak.
  2. You never really know if your spouse has a double life.  During Amanda’s reflection times, she started to put the pieces together. Humans live by routine, when it’s broken–Somethings UP!!!  My best marriage advice has always been: Keep your door open.  Translated to mean if you want to GO-GO and if you want to STAY-STAY but communication will be REQUIRED either way.  Everyone has a “DON”T CROSS THIS LINE MARK”, you must KNOW this is you want your relationship to last.
  3. There are 3 type of friends. 1. Those who helped you in difficult times; 2. Those who left you in difficult times; 3. Those who put you in difficult times.  WOW- this statement rings true in just about every situation that you encounter.  The best lesson is some people don’t need to be in your life.  When they show what type of friend they are–learn from that and never expect anything different from them. When you find yourself in a difficult time, pay close attention to how your friends react.  Are they with you offering to help you? Or are they somewhere talking about you?
  4. Some people don’t play fair.  When we find ourselves in challenging times we realize that some people will do anything to win.  Dr. Casey was determined to play dirty.  The best strategy to use when faced with this is EXPECT the UNEXPECTED.  When you are ready for anything to happen, you put yourself in a better place to brace the storm that is coming your way.
  5. When you start lying, it’s hard to find the a way to stop. Dr. Casey had so many issues going on that it was a miracle that he could remember.  It’s during these times of speaking so many lies that people get careless and something is bound to be forgotten.  It is so easy to just TELL THE TRUTH!
  6. Words have POWER! Whether you believe in speaking things into existence or not, many times those things you speak, you see!  When you read the book, you will realize the statement that Amanda spoke several times and results she manifests.
