Exemplary Success

What example have you set? What is your legacy? Will others who stand where you once stood be able to follow your path to success? The chronicle of you is more important than you could ever imagine. To give the gift of hope and inspiration to another is priceless. To empower another person to take control of their destiny is an investment in a better future for all of us. To do this we need to set an example for success. A ‘how to” guide of sorts is required. Although there is no set path for… Continue

Accepting Success

Graciously accept your successes. Be thankful for every accomplishment and the achievement of goals that you have set. To achieve the true and pure feeling of gratitude you must give thanks for what it is that has come into your experience without criticism. It is often hard for us to not criticize or re-evaluate the path that has been traveled to success, and it’s especially hard to not criticize something we perceive to be a failure.



Gratitude is first about the full acceptance of… Continue

Self Discipline: Your Commitment to Yourself

Self discipline is the most important attribute one can possess. If you are a small business owner or solo entrepreneur, self discipline will either make or break your business.

The Execution of Change

The Execution of Change

By: Lyndsey Shaffer



To change your current reality requires action. Continuously stating your disappointment or discontentment with your life only adds fuel to the fire. If you are unhappy with your life, change it. No one can change it but you and no one is responsible for placing you into your current situation but you. Do not hold onto feelings of obligation to other people if these feelings cause you to be unhappy. Societal, cultural, religious and… Continue

Presentation is Everything - part III (Promotional Material)

Presentation is Everything - part III (Promotional Material)

By: Lyndsey Shaffer



Your promotional and marketing materials are your greatest ally. They are your representative when you are not present and your cheat notes when you can't seem to find the right words to say. Make a conscious effort to create promotional materials that you can be proud of. Many small business owners create business cards, flyers and brochures out of necessity. It is true that these items will help… Continue

The High Payoff Task

The High Payoff Task

By: Lyndsey Shaffer



Time management skills are vital for the small business owner. The need to manage your time is not a new concept. However, many neglect to prioritize their tasks. Every single day you must have a list of things you will accomplish. From that list you need to identify "the high payoff task".



The high payoff task is the project that is in direct alignment with your goals and dreams. Many people consider the high payoff task to be… Continue

Presentation is Everything - part II (Speaking To Be Heard vs. Talking To Be Noticed)

Presentation is Everything - part II (Speaking To Be Heard vs. Talking To Be Noticed)

By: Lyndsey Shaffer



Speaking to be heard versus talking to be noticed is a distinction that must be made. Always speak to be heard. Make sure that the words that come out of your mouth are filled with value. It is the value that you bring to the table that will be taken home by others that night.



In school we were taught to participate in a discussion. In fact, often times we were… Continue

DREAM BIG FOR PERSONAL GROWTH

- DREAM BIG FOR PERSONAL GROWTH -

Written by Lyndsey Shaffer



Dream big. Set your goals so high that you have no idea how to achieve them. It is only then that you will grow. You will be forced to learn new skills, build new relationships and explore new thoughts. When you set easily achievable goals you can usually rely on the knowledge you already have to reach them. Setting easily achievable goals keeps you in a state of stagnation. It is only through continual personal growth… Continue

NETWORKING FOR INTERDEPENDENCE

- NETWORKING FOR INTERDEPENDENCE -

By: Lyndsey Shaffer



Stephen Covey's "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People" teaches us that interdependence is the level of growth we must achieve to allow us to be, create or attain greatness we may not otherwise achieve independently. To combine the talents of a few to reach an outcome that may be greater than that of an individual is truly a lesson that should be carried into business networking.



Very few professionals network… Continue

SMART WOMEN THINK AND SPEAK IN ABUNDANCE

- SMART WOMEN THINK AND SPEAK IN ABUNDANCE -

Written by Joy Chudacoff



A few days ago, I was enjoying a lovely, delicious lunch with my Mom at a small, cozy and quaint restaurant here in Los Angeles. The tables in this restaurant are very close together and you can get "friendly" with people at the next table. As my Mom and I were sitting and enjoying our meal, the person at the next table exclaimed, "Gosh, look how empty the place is due to the economy." Wow, where did that come… Continue

By: Christine M. Kloser



Branding, marketing and sales... oh, my! Many entrepreneurs (including myself when I was learning about business) overlook the importance of these aspects of entrepreneurship.

DON'T BE AFRAID TO CHARGE WHAT YOU'RE WORTH

- DON'T BE AFRAID TO CHARGE WHAT YOU'RE WORTH -

Written by Aliza Sherman



Get over your emotional hang-ups about money. Think instead about the value you're offering your customers.



I have a love/hate relationship with money, and it has plagued me all my adult life. It's taken me 20 years to extricate myself from a slew of bad money habits and operate around it with less emotion. In business, emotions and money just don't mix.



Ever since starting my own… Continue

Written by Charlie Cook



Is networking helping you bring in the new clients you want? If you are like most independent professionals and small business owners, you put hard work into getting your name out there and distribute your business card wherever you go.

Written by Jamie S. Walters



From a business perspective, most people would agree that the past several years have been real doozies in a lot of ways. As we look ahead into the coming year, and assess the path we traversed in the past 12 to 24 months, we'll find things that remain outside of our control, things for which we might plan and things that we can do right now to start the year with a sense of forward-momentum… Continue
