TOP 4 WORD-OF-MOUTH GROWTH TIPS

Word-of-mouth marketing is one of the most powerful tools in sales today, and yet, it remains deeply misunderstood and underused. In my extensive sales background, even when I’m working with highly experienced professionals, I find many can’t fully explain word-of-mouth, how to create it, or why it works. Even when they’ve previously benefited directly from it, they struggle to identify how it even happened in the first place. All they know is that word-of-mouth exists and th

Profit with a Plan!

Many times business owners want to look at outside circumstances as the blame for low sales. They say, “the economy is slow” or “people aren’t spending like they used to”. These statements are really just excuses. The truth is that there is no shortage of money in the world. People may be more selective on who they spend their money with, but they have NOT stopped spending. So why isn’t your business bringing in the big bucks? Let’s look closer to home…If you’re not profiting

Are You Giving Your Power Away?

Are You Giving Your Power Away? Yesterday morning, I woke up to this: 0800– A call from someone I hadn’t heard from in a while…asking to borrow money. 0830- A call to help someone write a 5,000 word book…for free. 0852– A call asking if I could volunteer at an organization. 0915– A call to visit a few people who are leaving town soon. 0950– An “urgent” email asking me to help someone with a project that they’re working on. 1005– 20 emails asking me for my HARDCORE advice. 102

HOW BAD DO YOU WANT IT?

I wanted it bad enough to break up with some friends (and even a few family members) who weighed me down with their disbelief and silent insecurities of being “left behind.” I wanted it bad enough that I believed in myself by shining my own light as bright as I could on even the darkest days.

God is always speaking but do we have time to listen? When we are open to the possibilities of what he is saying, how he is saying it, and what’s next. We can tap int
