Do You Believe Left-Handed People Are Different?


Attract the Right Job or Clientele: The recent news about diversity lead me to believe that left-handed people are different.  Upon being handed a sports article about left-handed sports figures, it became my must-read. Written by Sam Fortier, for The Washington Post. Sam asks the question, ‘Why aren’t there any left-handed quarterbacks in the NFL?’ According to Matt Leinert, a former lefty quarterback, states his kind is an extinct species.       I’m one who is left-handed.  Accordingly, I instantly connected the sports news to business and career.   At the same time, I wondered w hy do others consider the left-handed people as different?   My Story   Growing up, hearing scorn from others w...

How Do You Solve Puzzling Problems?


Attract the Right Job Or Clientele: Advancing to different stages of life, we face the question of how do you solve puzzling problems? The first step is to relax in a spot away from distractions. Contemplate all that is on your mind.  As this becomes a common practice, you will find similar methods apply to the work environment.   My Story   Once again, I’m referring to an old Seinfeld episode.  George Costanza admitted whatever he decides to do never works out.  So from that point forward, he will do the opposite.  The delivery is funny; however, there is a gem in his thinking.   Sometimes we are so set in our way that we don’t stop to analyze what isn’t working.  Those who make an effort t...

Are You Open To Varying Ideas?


Attract the Right Job or Clientele: Sales are easily lost when we are not open to varying ideas.  Planning meetings offer multiple opportunities for agreement. Unfortunately, the lack of agreement frequently delays potential progress.    Corporate business meetings and politics mirror one another.  The question becomes, do we harass other parties or seek to find a solution? In the United States., we have ten presidential candidates debating the same issues from varying angles.  Each candidate can stick to their unique thought.  Or, together, they can build a robust approach for solving problems.   Corporate and client meetings face similar decisions.  The strong desire to be the person in th...

What Aren’t You Hearing?

HubSpot Logo
Attract the Right Job Or Clientele: Recent and past experiences produce the question, what aren’t you hearing? The listening piece is about using all of your senses to hear, see, feel, and intuitively contemplate which actions to take next. Sales excellence requires almost a meditative state for analyzing the worst and best actions for moving forward. My Story What we analyze from all interactions are essential steps for business development and successful selling. Those motivated to succeed also willingly accept feedback, particularly the negative commentary. Whether right or wrong, the negativity points to where our focus is to be laser-sharp. Only then can we implement better decisions. L...

Do You Use Game Strategy for Business Development?


Attract the Right Job Or Clientele: As I begin to learn game strategy for Hearts, I realize similar techniques apply to business development. A routine error is enjoying the more relaxing days of summer without giving thought to a glowing finish for our year-end. We tend to put new strategies for business development on hold. Putting our updates on hold will poorly affect potential year-end success. My Story Instruction for the game of hearts began earlier this year. But after one lesson, the instructor and participants faded away. The card game held my interest, and so I watched the more experienced play a few times. I was then asked to be a substitute for one hand. Zero points later (the b...

Speaking Tips To Influence Your Audience


Attract the Right Job or Clientele: You can use speaking to influence your audience. Success from speaking is all about style and how it comes across. Of course, a few sales strategies enter into the mix. Others will hear our voice as we write, post online, and communicate in person. When we execute well, interest peaks and sales follow.   We all think of speaking as being on stage. However, we set our own stage for every type of communication.  How we prepare for a job interview, a meeting with prospective clients, or being in front of a large crowd, will determine our outcome.   An excellent example of gaining influence by written communication is that of The 2019 Global Business Insight A...

Do You Influence Others To See Value?


Attract the Right Job Or Clientele: Within the first two months of my sales career, I had to learn how to influence others to see value in my offerings. How we communicate in person and on stage influences others to listen first. As we deliver our thoughts well, the value is evident, and then sales begin to flow. The best book on the topic is “How to Win Friends And Influence People,” Dale Carnegie. Training plus the book taught me how to communicate with confidence while leaving the ego behind. Fearless communication, in the executive office or on stage, delivers the message we want others to hear. It’s a known fact that people fear public speaking more than death. I listened carefully to a...

Do You Relentlessly Pursue A Team Spirit?


Attract The Right Job Or Clientele: My life’s work has been to relentlessly pursue a team spirit as I strive to help communities. My ambition is that of fighting for equality. I strive to prove that women can achieve anything they set their minds to doing. And I continually encourage others to pursue their dreams. “Believe you can and you will.” My Story It is difficult to count my number of disappointments over jobs, people, and events, not living up to promises. Part of the difficulty is with some women not believing we deserve better. After a disaster, I give myself a 24-hour window of self-pity. But instead of calling it quits, I mentally plan my next move. I recognize: Those who disappo...

Do You Methodically Uncover The Facts?

HubSpot Logo
Attract the Right Job or Clientele: Many people begin selling before they methodically uncover the facts. Common sense can save the day. However, the lack of effective communication is not entirely the representative’s fault. The problem begins in the office. Management puts intense pressure on their team to either make quota or face unemployment. The timeline is short for proving oneself. Most new hires do not believe they have enough time for adequately acquainting themselves with the people at the company. One song title comes to mine, “You Talk Too Much,” Run-D.M.C. My Story Sales training usually consists of memorizing all of the high points about the products and services. Communicatio...

How You Lead Predicts Results


As we experience two distinct leadership styles, we realize, how you lead predicts results. Dilbert, created by Scott Adams, has been my long-standing favorite cartoon. Today’s cartoon brings to mind the topic of how you lead predicts results: Boss: We had a leadership meeting to decide how to move forward. Boss: But all of the leaders left the meeting with wildly different ideas about what we agreed on. Admin: How did you leaders plan to solve that? Boss: Phase one involves accusing each other of being stupid. “Being a good leader begins with our mindset. My Story The last line says it all. Most of us are made to feel stupid when sharing our original thought. As we hear our unique ideas rec...

How Do You Uncover Golden Opportunities?


Attract the Right Job or Clientele: The list of success habits did not include how to uncover golden opportunities. I shook my head upon reading, ‘we are to move on when told ‘no.’ The advice is that we cherish our time; pursuing ‘no’ only wastes it. Moving away from the initial negative responses disregards the hidden golden opportunities. Moreover, doing the same as everyone else has you appearing as a robot.  My Story It was with great excitement that I landed my fourth job. I would finally be selling a known brand of business equipment. Enthusiastically, I set out for my territory to begin the infamous pattern of ‘knocking on doors.’ The first day on the job was a steep challenge. One wo...

How Do You See Improvement?


Attract the Right Job or Clientele: How Do You See Improvement? How you see improvement and take action is more important now than ever before. However, our view of the better way isn’t always the best. Multiple questions and answers may well put us on a varying path.  My Story Recent news about ‘trouble in paradise’ with tourists being kidnapped or murdered, gave way to the thought of taking a martial arts class. A family member achieved black belt status as a young teenager. So, I turned to John to ask which type of defense class I should take. John’s response had me doing a double take. First, John politely minimized my ability to defend against kidnappers. The topic of attacks was then t...

Do You Realize Your Purpose?

HubSpot Logo
Attract the Right Job or Clientele: The ultimate accomplishment is to realize your purpose. In the early days of entrepreneurship, similar words came my way but were not understood. Most of us are so busy living life, that we merely maintain a running list of small to moderate goals. The achievements feel good for the moment.  But the problem is the excitement soon vanishes into a distant memory. As we mature, it’s natural to contemplate why we are here and question our purpose. We become more aware of time being precious and have a growing desire to be of service. My Story As I originally entered the entrepreneurial world, my focus was on moving my business forward. At the time, media inter...

Are You Savvy About Entertaining Clients?

HubSpot Logo
Attract the Right Job or Clientele  Lunch had me wondering if the guests were at all savvy about entertaining clients. A group of women agreed to meet at a historic location. While the ambiance of the restaurant is charming, the persona of some of the guests was not. There is usually an intersection where everyday life may teach us business lessons when we pay attention. The lack of thoughtfulness of some of the guests was eye-opening. Stories from the corporate days instantly came to mind. My Story Long ago, Amdahl, a mainframe computer company, treated its sales staff to a dining etiquette course. The goal was to teach the proper way to entertain clients while enjoying a meal. As the spous...

 Attract the Right Job or Clientele: If you are making these errors listed below, today is an excellent time to change your routine. The habits we allow ourselves to get into are sometimes the reason business declines. My Story 3 Errors Regarding The Approach: The way we approach others is the beginning phase of attempting to build a business. Whether you email, message on social platforms, call, or network, the plan has to be above board and well thought out. Unfortunately, I receive messages on a variety of social media platforms, in addition to unsolicited email, that frequently raises an eyebrow. The commonality is my inclination to delete instantly. The issues are many, but three appear...

Are You Preparing for the Future?


Attract the Right Job or Clientele: Tomorrow arrives quickly, yet many are not preparing for the future. Life and career are never a straight path. It is essential we consider the ‘what ifs’ of life. A few conversations reveal what happens when a person does not contemplate all possibilities before settling into a systematic way of doing things. My Story The sales process mirrors real life. The proven methodology is listening before speaking. Observe clients as they talk. Once both sides answer all questions, the next phase is finding a value-driven solution. But where most salespeople err is in believing they are the only ones who have the answer. Negotiation teaches us to evaluate all the ...
