How tied is your self worth to your product or service?

How tied is your self worth to your product or service?

How tied is your self worth with your product or service? Women have a wonderful ability to personalize absolutely everything. This includes wrapping our product or services up with our own self worth. Here are all the horrible things that happen when you do that: Number 1 – Unless you are completely in love with yourself which is actually something I encourage you will undercharge. You will price your products or services depending on how you value yourself. Low self […]

The best free online tool I have found in a LONG time!

Screen Shot 2014-03-24 at 11.52.51 am

Last week I stumbled upon a free tool to help us ‘non-creative’ peeps design amazing graphics for Facebook, newsletters, blogs and where ever else you like to stick images.  It is no secret that images grab a lot more attention than just text; Pinterest and Instagram exist just for that purpose! If you are a bit shabby when it comes to designing your own shareable images and don’t want to get sprung for sharing stuff that doesn’t belong to you […]

How to get some sales motivation happening!

Screen Shot 2014-03-26 at 6.17.13 pm

If I called you today (I do this to terrorise my clients) and asked what your sales were for the day, week and month to date could you tell me? Most small business owners would answer no to that question for the simple reason that they don’t actually check. If you wait until the end of the month, or worse the end of the quarter to check your sales results you are robbing yourself. Watch my video to find out […]

Could your business kill someone?

ed

  This week instead of Two Minute Tuesday I want to share something really important with you.  It could save your life, it could save the lives of others. We are all busy right?  So busy we check our email when stopped at traffic lights, so busy we quickly check our Facebook page while cruising up the highway.  We are supreme multi-taskers so what is the harm?  You are only taking your eyes off the road for a minute, what could […]

The power of silence in a sales coversation

Two Minute Tuesday

  Sometimes in business it is best just to shut your mouth! Do you ever catch yourself justifying the price of your product or service to customers?  If this sounds like you then today’s Two Minute Tuesday is just for you! Often when having sales conversations any ‘dead air’ or silence makes us uneasy.  That silence however can be powerful in making a sale.  If you choose to fill the silence with nervous chatter you are giving the customer the […]

Should I give products or services away for free?

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 6.24.12 pm

    Here are my three golden rules for giving away freebies to win business!  Rule number 1 – never give anything away for free if you aren’t going to use the freebie as part of your sales funnel.  Many people offer free product samples or a free consult but they never follow up, they hope the prospect will love the freebie so much that they will be compelled to buy.  Most of the time that is just not going […]

How the language you use affects your business

Two Minute Tuesday

Hey Lady!  I want YOU to watch your f#$king language when you talk about your business!   Think about the language you use when you market your business or when you discuss your business with others, particularly family and friends.  As women it can often be a struggle to prove we have legitimate money making businesses.   People’s perception of your business may be linked to the fact that you have just returned to work after having kids, it might […]

Work in the Nude Day! December 6th 2013

63100_523474367665857_494725731_n

Working from home can be lonely at times.  Occasionally I miss the interaction with other people, especially when I need to vent!  Agent K9 is a pretty good listener but often he is taking his “power focus” session (nap) when I need him. For me the advantages of working from home far outweigh the disadvantages.  One of those being that I can work nude if I please!  Last year Agent K9 and I participated with glee in Flying Solo’s Work […]

Google Image Search – How I found an Imposter!

Screen Shot 2013-11-01 at 8.05.29 PM

 Google Image Search – How I found an imposter! The internet is a wonderful thing.  Where would we be without it?  It does come with a few issues though especially when it comes to security.  I recently found an image that I used professionally a few years ago (after 3 years in business I no longer look as “youthful” so I have updated)  being used by someone on Facebook.  It was quite scary! Who knows what that person is up […]

Do you ‘woo’ your customers?

Do you woo your customers?

  A few weeks ago I was looking at a big (for me anyway) purchase.  I was quite shocked when the sales guy used the good old “so will that be cash or card” before he woo-ed me.  It was like being on a first date where you think you are having a nice friendly dinner but all of a sudden you are being groped in the car park – ick! The sales guy was trying to seal the deal […]

The 4 Hour Work Week – is it worth reading?

The 4 hour work week

Can you really work a 4 hour work week?   When I first heard about the 4 Hour Work Week I thought… no bloody chance I am reading that!  I hate anything that sounds far too good to be true and let’s face it a 4 hour work week does sound too good to be true.  Well I caved in the name of research!People kept asking me for great business books to read and asking if I had read it […]
