Early this week I have the please of having fellow MyBBWO member Tamara Garrison-Thomas be a guest blogger on my blog.
Even though it goes unnoticed, cold calling is probably the most effective way to grow your business. Believe it or not, cold calling is a part of business development. Steve Richard shares in his blog, ‘Outbound Prospecting The Cold Calling Tactic That Works’ that 71% of sales reps… Continue

Yes, that is correct. More often than not, people are not joining your organization or purchasing your product because it’s the next best thing since MAC or Jamba Juice, they are joining you or purchasing from you because they like you and/or respect…

Two years ago when President Obama signed the healthcare reform bill, you would have thought the debate would have been done, and Americans would appreciate the prospect of having irrevocable healthcare. However some polls indicate that two out of three respondents want the bill repealed. I will suggest to you that the majority of those who oppose the healthcare bill are working class people of European decent. And I will suggest to you that their only motive for opposing the bill is that… Continue

If you are an entrepreneur in the service industry or have physical products to sell, there are two things you must have in your business toolbox. Although, I have yet figured out how to incorporate one of them into my business, I do own both. So what am I talking about? The first thing is a smartphone. Not sure if you have seen the latest Blackberry commercial taking jabs at iphone users saying that they don’t need a toy but a tool help run their business. On a side note, I think Blackberry… Continue

Time after time after time and again, I get the following responses from people that are either looking to start a business, looking for a business opportunity, looking to transition into a business that is profitable, or new to business altogether:
1) I chose this business because I’m absolutely in love with the products.
2) I chose this business because it’s my passion.
In business, if you truly are running a business as opposed… Continue

The fact of the matter is if you truly believed it in your soul, you could call in to work well and yes, fire your boss. I am not saying you can close your eyes, believe it and do it immediately. You could, but you’d probably end up broke and homeless. But there is no doubt that it is doable and being done each and every day through a vehicle that the masses just simply don’t believe in. Network Marketing and Multi Level Marketing, otherwise known as the Direct Selling industry is this… Continue

I know a lot of people who sometimes just “drop out” of sight. I believe it’s a sign of the times. Too much pressure. Too many expectations. Too much stuff going on. The only way people seem to handle the stress, strife and struggles of life is to hide.
I guess that’s normal. If you knew a storm was coming, you’d hide. If… Continue

It is an advertising strategy thats all about low-cost unconventional means (graffiti, sticker bombing, flash mobs) to promote a product or an idea. The goal is to create buzz and maybe go viral.

One thing I hear solopreneurs talk about is how distracted we get from doing our day to day tasks - you know, the ones truly critical to reaching our goals. If that's the case for you, look at what you are tolerating. A great place to start? Your email inbox.
What things are you allowing to distract you? Do you get tons of emails from vendors that entice you to buy the next best program or course? What about emails that you never read...yet they take up space in your inbox. Could… Continue

Most of us have been there at one time or another. We find ourselves in toxic relationships and have no idea how we got there. We are either in denial or desperately trying to fight our way out. If that's you I'd like to encourage you to hang in there and do whatever it takes to get out.
If you've gotten out, bravo for you! I'm happy you have made it to the other side. Encourage your sisters and keep pressing forward in faith and… Continue
