3/1/2021
It's hard to believe that's it's been a year that most of us have been on lockdown due to the pandemic. It has been tough on some and we all need a way to stay upbeat and redefine our purpose. There is a Japanese word, Ikigai, that means "a reason for being".

Episode 650 – Don’t Be Be An Inbox Clogger – Email With A Purpose

2/22/2021
It's easy to have a full email inbox. As a business owner, you don't want to be part of somebody's full inbox, meaning your email lays unread and ultimately in the trash bin. That means you have to make your emails "Must Read" just like "Must See TV". Email newsletters are the biggest culprit of the land of unread emails. Too often they contain multiple stories, trying to appeal to a wide audience, but often when you miss the mark."If you make them choose, you often confuse." To stand out...

Episode 648 – Organized or Disorganized… That is the Question?

2/15/2021
Did you know that the average person spends 2.5 days (60 hours) per year searching for lost items? My guess is that is even longer if you include your digital assets (emails, password, computer files, and more). If you are a solopreneur, that can easily add up to over $6000 (at $100 per hour) in lost billable time per year. If you have a team of 20 people, that could add up to over $10,000 per month in lost billable time or just simple waste! There are four things or groups that I'd like to...

Episode 638 – Yes AND vs Yes BUT – When To Let Go Of Your Buts

1/11/2021
The word “YES” alone is a very positive word but, a lot of times the word yes has an addendum to it such as yes and, or yes but. Today I want to help you know when you should be letting go of your buts when it comes to the word ‘YES'. While “Yes… But” is where people are trying to whittle away at the information to narrow it down, “Yes… And” adds to the situation and adds value. If you're using the “Yes.. And” then you're probably adding value to your relationships. If you're using the yes...

Episode 636 – Time Vs Money – Both Are Limited Resources But What Do You Value More?

1/4/2021

Although we are just getting off the ground (business-wise), there are many business and marketing experts that are trying to suggest that now is the time to hustle. Not to pick on anyone's philosophy, some will tell you that time is a limited resource that you can't get back, but you can always make more money? I beg to differ and say that is a business mirage. You can replenish money, but most of us have limited...
