BE Your Genius and Watch Your Business Expand

Lisa Nichols: Changing your conversations changes your results.

Lisa Nichols: Changing your conversations changes your results.

Lisa Nichols, one of the teachers on The Secret, addressed a crowd of about 700 business people in July 2008 and I was there on the front row. My life will never be the same. She said, “The only thing keeping you from what you want are your conversations. Change your conversations and you change your results.”

That stuck with me and does to this day. Is really the only thing keeping me from what I desire my conversations? The answer? YES! Have I learned that the easy way? Yes. Have I learned it the hard way (not getting what I want)? Yes. Because I have learned this the hard way, I am more committed than ever to integrate this into my life even more. read more

What the Tweet? Twitter Tips

Just when I think I start to “get” Twitter, I get confused again. So I know there is more for me to learn. A few tips I’ve recently heard:

-Tweet about someone else compared to yourself in a ratio of 3 to 1. So talk about someone else three times for every one time you mention yourself or something you are offering.

-My own personal pet peeve: Why are Tweeters telling me what they are eating for breakfast, or if they are going to the bathroom? Does that add value to my life?

-Go easy on the quotes. I love quotes that inspire me, BUT when I see someone’s posts and they have more than five per day, I get lost and wonder how anyone has that much time to look up so many quotes. Am I missing something here? read more

Vision Board for Your BRAND

Vision Board for Your BRAND

I enjoy finding tips for Biz Divas and came across this blog from a fellow Utah woman Heather Carson and LOVED her suggestion of creating a vision board for your brand. I love the vision board process and have done several, yet this expanded my mind to what I could do for my business. How awesome. Thank you to Heather Carson. Check out her blog.

Brand Vision Board

If you are starting a new business or want to re-focus an existing one, try creating a brand vision board. Different from a personal vision board that portrays your personal goals, a brand vision board includes clippings and images about your customer- who they are, where they shop, what kinds of things they do for work and play, what they buy and wear… read more

Entrepreneur? Apology Not Accepted

Apology Not Accepted

Do you ever find yourself saying any of these phrases?

• “I’m sorry, but I think…”

• “I’m sorry you have to do this, but…”

• “I’m sorry to bother you with…”

• “I’m sorry, this might not be exactly what you wanted…”

It’s a fact that women apologize more frequently than men. Many times we do it just to be polite. But is it diminishing our credibility? Our power? Yes.

A talented member of my team constantly apologizes, even for situations she has no knowledge about and no control over. Another young woman, who had a different opinion from the rest of our group, began her sentence during a meeting with, “I’m sorry, but I think we could do it this way.” Just like that, she gave her power away. She weakened her point with that little word. read more
