Monday Book Review-Talent

 

talent

This book has a great message about change.  Here are the 6 points that I learned from the book:

  1. In order to win everyone will need to be Me, Inc.  We must all consider ourselves self employed.  Even if we are working we must think about ourselves as a Brand.
  2. Business will be obsolete in 15-20 years.  If we know this now, we must get ourselves prepared to work in a different type of environment.  Goals must be completed and everyone will have show leadership skills.  Big Box Companies will disappear and the trend is already starting.
  3. Learning must never cease.  In order to be valuable and maintain our worthiness, we must remember that school is never out for the pro!
  4. The number 1 industry in the US that employs the most people is TEMP Services. Since 2001, this field has exploded.  This field will continue to expand as more companies go to a independent contractor system. 
  5. Have the attitude of You can change the world.  Projects that matter are so important now more than ever.  Make a Difference that is the thought of the day.  Nothing Succeeds Like Failure Feels.
  6. You Do Have he Power!!  The greatest sorry is to hear life changing information and decide you can’t implement it because you lack the power.  No one has to give you permission take it REALITY, IS THIS- if you refuse to sale yourself, your product, service or ideal, YOU WILL DIE ON THE VINE 

Do yourself a favor and read: TALENT.

Monday Book Review-Rainmaker

rainmaker

This was a very good book.  Here are the top 6 tips that I learned:

  1. Don’t fear rejection that’s how rainmakers are made.  We need to begin to expect rejection and be ready to deal with everything that comes our way.  Without the ability to deal with the rejection.
  2. Rainmakers have not competition.  When we operate in our “Sweet Spot” we should know that we have nothing that can stop you.
  3. Schedule an appointment and sale your customer.  Assume the sale and don’t forget to ask for the sale.  90% of sales people don’t ask.  When someone agrees to meet with you decide in advance that they will purchase everything you have pre-determined for them to have.  Don’t doubt your skill  or their ability to purchase. 
  4. Give the extra’s to build a life-long relationship.  When people like you, they will be doing business with a friend and suddenly the pressure is off.
  5. Fish where the BIG Fish are!!!  Don’t be afraid or ashamed of what you do for a living.  It is honorable to sell, don’t make it bad.  Give good thoughts to how you show up and others will believe what you think.
  6. You are a Rainmaker, make it RAIN! When you believe, you can do it!!!!!

Go and read this book: RAINMAKER.

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.

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!

Movie Review-Hidden Figures

hidden-figures-poster

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

  1. The right position has privileges.Many times we have great privileges that we receive because of the position we hold.
  2. We are living the impossible.  Do you believe we are living the impossible?  If you truly believe that you can–it’s all a matter of belief.
  3. The work you do matters.  It is so easy to think that what you do has no weight, but imagine the world without your contribution.
  4. Everyone will not appreciate your gift.  We might encounter people who don’t believe in us or what we have the power to do.  It is our job to BELIEVE in ourselves.
  5. Numbers don’t lie.  Numbers are an abosulute science.  I love when there is not other answer to the question 4+4 will always = 8.
  6. Who ever gets there first calls the rules.  When you look at new things, the first person who started it usually is the leader that everyone follows.

Monday Book Review-Oh, The Place You’ll Go!

oh-the-places-youll-go

This book was written by Dr. Seuss for children, but the lessons are priceless.  Here are the 6 lessons I received:

  1. Life is full of choices.  During our life will encounter a number of options and we must make a choice.
  2. You will see some great things.  In every area in life, you need to keep our eyes on the good things that happen in our life.
  3. You will make some bad decisions.  Sometime we need to start over and we might get off track.  Everyone makes a bad decision from time to time.
  4. There is FUN to be done.  Many times we don’t take the time to see the Fun that is available for us.  See the FUN everyday.
  5. Sometimes you must go alone.  I know that in every stage of our life, we need some alone time.  God does his best work when we are alone and he has our captive attention.
  6. Life is a GREAT Balancing Act. We will have HIGHS and we will have LOWS.  We must realize that nothing stays the same.  We have to be willing to learn as we go up and we go down.  Hopefully our life will be a GREAT Balancing ACT!

Monday Book Review-Ladies Living Life Forward

ladyd-book4-500x500

I had the pleasure of purchasing this book when it was released but I had not reviewed it until today. Here are the 6 lesson I got from the book:

  1. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.  This scripture is so apparent in the life of Lady D.  She is a passionate Christian woman, she truly desires that everyone believes that they CAN do all things only with Christ.  I love her commitment to the promises of God.
  2. Forgiveness is needed.  In order to live the life that God has for you, you must rid any anger or ill will to anyone.  She truly broke down why forgiveness is needed in our lives and how you can receive the benefits God has promised you.
  3. Renew your mind.  If you want to make a change in your life, start with your mind. God allows us free will but many times we don’t monitor what goes in our mind.  It is our job to keep the GARBAGE out of our mind. Lady D shares the blessing in memorizing the scriptures.  Scriptures are just like weapons we can use when Satan is attacking us.  When we start to speak those scriptures from our memory, the Devil can’t do anything but leave us alone.
  4. Take control of your personal economy. Our jobs many times are taken for granted and we don’t see God’s favor of having the job.  Lady D stressed the need to save and take some steps to save money and do what we can to improve our finances.
  5. Encourage yourself.  Not many people feel comfortable talking about their greatness.  If more people realized that God gave you the greatness because YOU are the Apple of His Eye.  Spend time finding out what is good about you.  What do people love about you??  God gave you that skill or gift.  Don’t take God’s gift for granted.
  6. The Word of God can change your life.  After all of the issues that people experience that is always an answer by the Father.  Lady D encourages us to seek the scriptures for our answers.  If you BELIEVE God created it all, there is nothing he can’t solve.  The problem occurs when we don’t know his word and his promises.  Life will always have ups and downs but with God the downs can be occur while you are in HIS hands.
