Start Work at the Same Time Every Day

Start Work at the Same Time Every DayEven if you’re self-employed and you live to be flexible, keep yourself to one set time slot—and that’s starting work at the same time every day. No matter how flexible you are the rest of the day, getting yourself into the habit of sitting down to work at the same time every day will help you accomplish more—and avoid procrastination.

Starting work at the same time every day can greatly benefit one’s productivity and overall work performance.  Here are some reasons why:

7 Steps to Create Your Ideal Customer Profile

7 Steps to Create Your ICPIt can be challenging to identify your ideal customer. 

It takes work, research, and patience. Some business owners are hesitant to even start.  Their concern is that it may not be wise to limit their audience: Isn’t it just a “numbers game”, and therefore better to target everybody and see who bites?

Unfortunately, unless you have a massive budget, that shotgun approach is doomed. If you try to reach everybody without targeting your ideal customer, you’ll get nobody, because your message won’t resonate. It will fail to cut through the noise and speak directly to your potential buyer. 

Small businesses need to limit their focus, so they can target the right people with the right offer. Establishing an “ideal customer profile” (ICP) allows you to narrow your focus and maximize results. 

With a good ICP, your message will reach the people who need to hear it.

6 Reasons We’re Afraid to Ask for Help

6 reasons we are afraid to ask for help

Even though struggles and obstacles are a part of life that everyone has to deal with, some of us are afraid to ask for help. As coaches, we also can often encounter clients who struggle to ask for help when they need it. This reluctance to seek assistance can stem from a variety of reasons. 

Some people experience the benefits of asking for help, yet others hold themselves back and suffer silently. Whether you are struggling in your professional or your personal life, not asking for the help you need can be detrimental to your success.

In this article, we will explore six common reasons why people are afraid to ask for help and discuss strategies for overcoming these barriers. You can use these for yourself or for your clients.

1-Pride Stands in the Way

People who are independent by nature tend to struggle when it comes to asking for help, because they believe they should do everything themselves. But while independence is a great trait to have, it can become a detriment. The pride that comes with it can get in the way of getting things accomplished promptly.

The Importance of Defining Success

The Importance of Defining SuccessEveryone in life seems to be chasing the same thing, something by the name of “success”. While this may sound like we’re all pursuing a similar goal, it couldn’t be further from the truth. For this reason, before you start the journey towards success, you must define what it means to you—personally. Otherwise, you may end up lost along the way.

Why Does Success Look Different for Everyone?

Name one person on the earth that likes all the same things you do and does things in the exact way you do things. Can’t think of anyone? Exactly. This is because everyone is different, and so you can’t expect success to look the same for everyone either.

You have different desires, beliefs, and abilities. Chances are that something someone else may see as success may not even seem worthwhile to you. Therefore, you wouldn’t consider it a success based on how you see the world.  Like when I watched my 86-year-old mother-in-law sky-dive. For her, it was a success on her bucket list. But for me, I thought, “There’s no way in the world I’ll ever want to do that.”

Video Tip: Create a Media Kit in Canva

Do members of the media who need interviews with experts know about you or how to reach you? If you shrugged your shoulders to either of these questions, then it’s time to create your own media kit.

Years ago, the term “media kit” was a format where magazines published their advertising rates, along with the magazine’s stats, such as target demographics, number of subscribers, and the following year’s editorial calendar.

But today, media kits have become a must-have item for any business owner wanting media exposure. The kits also showcase your accomplishments to prospective clients and JV partners. All the elements of a magazine’s media kit remain the same, the only difference is that, instead of a magazine, YOU and your business are the focus.
