The Franchise Alternative

This article is for you if you have been considering purchasing a franchise business. My aim is to help you make an intelligent comparison of different business options so you can determine what's best for you. 

There are many great advantages and benefits to a franchise business. Some of them are:

  • The ability to plug into a proven product with a good company and solid reputation/brand.
  • Alignment with a reputable company which reduces uncertainty, doubt and increases confidence.
  • In-depth company training and support during all phases of your business/franchise launch.
  • Recruiting a team that fully manages your business for you providing you with freedom to pursue other interests such as travel etc.

Given these enormous advantages, you might ask why would someone not want this? Well, despite these many advantages, it turns out that only 20% of those exploring franchises actually wind up purchasing one! So it is natural to inquire why and explore alternatives.

The biggest downside of a franchise purchase is the cost and the associated risk. Many franchises require a sizable investment of $100K or more and, despite all of the positive aspects, there is still a real risk. Not all franchises are successful and not everyone is cut out for this path. You may feel that the available franchise opportunities you've researched don't fulfill your personal needs or aren't compatible with the lifestyle you want.

Franchises are often very systems driven so it may not offer the creative avenue you desire. It usually takes a while for all the moving parts of a franchise to click and get the right staff that works well together. There's always a learning curve regardless how many manuals and training seminars are offered.

Some questions you may want to consider:

  • Are you the type of individual who will be committed to taking action consistently and following through with tasks?
  • Are you willing to go into areas that are unfamiliar and maybe a bit uncomfortable for you?
  • Are you willing to deal with your own self sabotaging patterns that may get in the way of your success? These are all going to be important for your success in a franchise business.
  • What if… You like the concept of a franchise and and the potential freedom is appealing but you're just not sure a franchise is right for you. Or, it may simply be too scary making the required financial investment. What alternatives exist?

One very powerful alternative you may want to consider is one where you design and launch a business based on your own personal interests, values, purpose, passion rather than seek to match yourself to some pre-existing company or system. If you're a strong individual with the desire for personal fulfillment and/or you have a desire to make a unique contribution to world with your gifts, this approach may be appealing.

The immediate question that arises here is: how can I make this kind of business profitable? What if… the thing I love the most is not marketable in the "real world"?

The answer lies in understanding the connection between your purpose and creating value in the world for others. Value created and income are linked. The more value you create and the more the value is targeted to a population with a specific problem, the greater your marketability and profitability will be.

If your background is mostly in the corporate world as an employee you'' probably need to spend some time learning and understanding this connection. The more this sinks in and the more comfortable you become with it, the more appealing this kind of business will likely be for you.

The good news is that the Life Crafting program addresses this and many of the other goals and concerns people have.

Life Crafting offers the opportunity to:

  • Clarify what you truly love – your passion and purpose
  • Identify your "genius zone" – the greatest avenue for impact and contribution, value
  • Craft an ideal business based on the above that is aligned with your soul's desire.
  • Express your creativity in your business so it is deeply satisfying and fulfilling to you
  • Generate an outstanding income as result of our "leveraged business model".
  • Empower you to master course skills like sales and presentation that are usable anywhere and everywhere
  • Create a business that is location independent so you can you can live or travel anywhere you wish
  • Apply a "systems approach" which gives you many of the advantages of a franchise
  • Transform personal patterns of feared, doubt, lack of confidence etc.

 

Cost Comparison

A further benefit of Life Crafting is the cost—a small fraction of the cost of most franchises. There's also no risk because the promise of our program is that you will generate an income at least sufficient to cover your program costs. The promise is in effect as long as you follow the prescribed process and apply the tools we teach you.

While this may sound appealing in many ways, Life Crafting is not for everyone. To qualify for our program, you'll need to make a commitment to the process which includes your own personal growth. Many people are not willing to do this.

Life Crafting is not a slam dunk. It takes 6 months to a year to get your business fully launched and it may not generate much income during the months of business development. You'll need to rely on savings, spouse or a part-time job during this time.

While Life Crafting graduates can generate a $10-15K monthly income, it is likely it will not match the income of a major franchise like a McDonald's so you'll need to decide what's most important to you. If having a very high income is important to you, Life Crafting may not be a good fit.

We offer a complimentary phone Strategy Session for individuals who are genuinely interested in the Life Crafting opportunity. You need to be a serious minded individual able to make some investment. One benefit of the Strategy Session is it will help you determine the optimum type of business for you. You can schedule your Strategy Session here

If you decide to work with us in the Life Crafting program, you'll become part of a dynamic community of like-minded individuals. Most people find this alone to be a very uplifting experience. I hope you found this article valuable – please let us know how it is helpful to you!

The Magic of The 3 Degree Shift

Imagine that you're in an airplane flying over the city of Atlanta and that your compass heading is set to take you to San Francisco. Now you make a 3 degree shift in your compass heading. This changes your destination to Los Angeles which is over 1000 miles from where you were headed before.

What does this little story tell you about making shifts in your life now? It demonstrates the incredible power of making a small, seemingly insignificant shift in your direction. You will soon see that this idea is critical to understand if you're pursuing an important life goal or vision.

Let's apply the 3 degree shift to something concrete. Suppose you have a goal that is important to you but your current path is not taking you closer to your goal. You feel discouraged because you cannot see realistically HOW you can get to your destination from where you're standing. For example, you might be in an entry level job earning a low salary while your future life vision is to have your own business doing something radically different from what you're doing now.

This is where the 3 degree shift reveals its magic. Ask yourself: what small shift can I make now, perhaps with the help of some supportive people in my life, that will get me moving towards my desired destination? If you can't think of what this could be, ask some of your friends. Chances are good that they will be able to see some things you're not seeing.

With the help of some interaction or coaching, you'll be able to identify and create a small shift of only 3 degrees in your course heading. Now project yourself forward on your new compass heading. Notice how this simple shift is pointing you much more in your desired direction. What do you see that's different? Chances are good that you now see a bigger possibility for the future, an easier path ahead and an increased confidence in moving to where you want to be. 

So now you may be saying to yourself "okay, I get the 3 degree shift idea but where am I going to find a skilled coach or someone able to guide me on making this shift? Great question! I have some good news for you! This is exactly the kind of thing that happens in our Complimentary Strategy Session.

In the Strategy Session, you'll gain clarity on where you're presently headed, where you actually want to be and from this we create the shift. Part of it will be strategic, part practical and a part perceptual, emotional, maybe all of the above. The Strategy Session has a value of $495 but we're offering it for a limited time to a select group of people who are motivated to create shifts for themselves.

What excites me most about the 3 degree shift is that once you've experienced it, you can create another one pretty easily and then another. I'm sure you can extrapolate the implications of carrying this further. How do you schedule your Strategy Session? Just click here, complete the form and you're in! I appreciate you posting comments and questions.

Are You Highly Marketable Yet Unemployable?

 

 

 

Many people are. You may have acquired a a high level of specialized skills and experience which don't translate into a high paying position. This is especially true now that so many companies are seeking to reduce costs by hiring younger candidates starting out in their careers.

 

Ironically, the greater your level of skill and experience, the more difficulty you will likely have, making you unemployable at least at the salary level you need to be receiving.

 

On the flip side, these same advanced skills make you highly desirable and marketable in a freelance, consulting or entrepreneurial context. The reason is that in this context, you are a problem solver which is exactly what's needed and wanted in the marketplace. The key distinction is that each environment or context has a different set of rules and criteria. It is vital for you to see this, understand it and, as soon as possible, apply it effectively.

 

You could easily spend the next 6-9 months or more peddling your resume to companies or recruiters and get no results, or spend the same time generating significant income and simultaneously establishing yourself as a respected go to professional in your optimum niche.

 

If you sit down with paper and calculator and determine the costs and the risks, you will be shocked. The loss of income for this time is huge not to mention the hit on your self esteem and confidence.

So how can you make this critical shift?

 

You'll need an open mind along with a good dose of courage and self trust to change your mindset and focus. You're also going to need to see some success stories or role models of people with similar backgrounds to yours who made this transition successfully. This is needed to prove to yourself this is possible. After spending the majority of your life in the world of employment it is no slam dunk suddenly becoming comfortable being independent. However, it can be done and is being done everywhere and everyday.


The most important thing you will need is a highly experienced mentor or guide who has mastered the tools and art of life/career transition and entrepreneurial marketing. Equally important will be the ability to help you gain clarity of vision and purpose for yourself because your motivation and confidence will stem from your ability to know and trust when something feels right.

 

A good guide or mentor will help you gain this clarity and make the critical shift to an entrepreneurial mindset. Even if you never considered this seriously and even if you've associated entrepreneurship with high risk, you can do this AND you need to do this ASAP.


The truth is that the corporate world is highly unlikely to offer a seasoned veteran like yourself the level of creativity, challenge, satisfaction, autonomy and freedom you truly want and need at this stage of your life and career.


Our Life Crafting Program has been providing this exact kind of support and mentorship for decades. To learn more and get started, I encourage you to schedule your complimentary Discovery Session here. Doing this simple step today will open a door to a new opportunity in which you can make money doing what you LOVE! I look forward to meeting with you!

The Devastating Effect of Communication Withholds and What To Do About them

The longer you live, the more you will hopefully realize that your relationships are your most precious resource. Most of the time, people treat their relationships like a throw away can of beer. They're unaware of the actions and patterns that damage their relationships, often beyond repair and they're equally oblivious to the readily available resources that will nurture and support their relationships allowing them to thrive. The saddest part of this is that it often impacts the most important relationships in your life and the people you love most deeply.

My aim here is to awaken you to one of the most damaging patterns in all relationships. I'm going to focus on the devastating effect of communication withholds and what to do about them. A withhold is something that needs to be expressed but is not communicated. It is withheld. There are countless "reasons" why people don't communicate what's going on for them but regardless of the specifics, the underlying issue is fear.

Communicating your truth, especially your feelings, can be scary. A typical thought process might be: What if... she becomes angry at me? What if... he rejects me and leaves me? What if... my boss gets angry and fires me. The list of reasons for not communicating or sharing your experiences—thoughts and feelings, are numerous.

Most of the time it feels much safer to let things slide by and not "rock the boat". You might rationalize the situation, saying to yourself something like, "it's not that big a deal". While one single instance may not be a big deal, the continued pattern of withholding over time can build up and indeed become a very big deal.

The most important awareness to gain about withholds is how damaging they are even when they seem insignificant. When you don't communicate your truth with someone important to you, the consequence almost always will be some form of "distancing" with that person.

Let's say you borrow money from someone and you're unable to pay them back when you had planned to to so. You're embarrased and now dreading telling them about your circumstances. You're even more scared about them asking you about it and having to tell them you don't have the money. 

So what's the most natural consequence of this situation? There's a good possibility you'll start to avoid this person. You might not call them or see them with the same level of frequency you usually do or you might steer your conversation away from finances. In short, you will likely "tiptoe around the tulips" and not realize the "price" you're paying for not telling the truth and resolving the matter openly. Sometimes the resolution of the issue can be simple and relatively painless yet the inclination to withhold is still often very strong.

Not realizing the downside of withholding, you will tend to continue the withholding pattern even to the point of damaging the trust level with the person. The most obvious and extreme case of communication withholding is marital infidelity. The reason is pretty obvious: there is so much at stake. Yet, when the truth does come out in the open, what does the person on the other side usually say? Something like "what hurts me the most (beyond your unfaithfulness) was your continued hiding the truth from me". 

It definitely takes courage to tell the truth about sensitive matters. There are two keys to harnessing the inner strength and courage to express your truth and feelings. One is being clear about the downside of withholding it AND the second is learning HOW withholds can be communicated in a safe, effective and mutually empowering manner. 

Fortunately, a method exists for communicating withholds that does all this and more. What makes this method so powerful is the "safe container" it provides for your communication. I can virtually guarantee that using this method will clear the air and bring you and the other person much closer together. It will make it much easier to resolve even long standing issues and help the two of you to resolve differences and different approaches or viewpoints.

So how can you get your hands on this powerful Withhold Exercise? Glad you asked! It is available when you schedule a complimentary Discovery Session

I look forward to assisting you in transforming all your relationships! Please post your comments below.

The True Nature of Coaching: Part 2

In this Part 2 segment, I’m going to share some more super powerful benefits of coaching. 

Passion, Purpose and Commitment
A skilled coach is able to help you clarify your purpose, passion and commitments in unique and powerful ways. When you're able to identify what you truly want, you become on fire and you’re able to accomplish extraordinary things. 

From this place, motivation is sustainable because it comes from within. You're heart is in it all the way. When was the last time if ever you felt this way about your life or business?

A skilled coach can elicit your vision of the future and guide you to create this vision as real for yourself now. When you get in touch with your vision, you ignite your greatest creative power.

The more emotionally connected you are with your vision, the more you attract the people, situations and opportunities allowing your vision to be realized.

Marketing and Sales Success
The foundation to all your success in the world is communication. A skilled coach will empower you to expand your relationship building skills and create the key alliances that will make the critical difference for you. A coach will help you to increase your sales results and reach your financial goals directly impacting your quality of life!

Getting Out Of Your Comfort Zone
Skilled coaches instinctively know how to empower you beyond your comfort zone where you tend to play it safe. You learn to challenge yourself and venture into new territories which allows unexpected opportunities to emerge. You see a more expansive landscape beyond what you can see on your own.

Shifting Your Beliefs
The most significant aspect of your reality map is your beliefs. Over time, the experiences arising from these beliefs reinforces them.You soon forget that you have the belief yet it continues to operate behind the scenes defining and limiting the life experiences you can have.

A skilled coach trained in the BeliefCloset method will help you identify the beliefs holding you back and transform them. This BeliefCloset method is accessible to all our Life Crafting Clients. 

Okay, Coaching is a Good Thing, Now What?
By now, you have hopefully gotten the idea that having a coach is a good thing especially if you want to achieve some important goals or life vision.

How Can You Get Started?
To get all the many benefits of a coaching relationship I mentioned and many more, your most important first step is our complimentary Strategy Session. All the details and signup are at lifecraftingprogram.com/strategysession.

The True Nature of Coaching: Part 1

Most people these days are familiar with coaching in one context or another. At the very least, you're familiar with coaching in sports.

If you've been in business or professional circles, you've also probably heard of life, career or business coaching, but what is coaching, really? There are many common misconceptions. Below are some of them.

Some people believe that coaching is:

  • giving advice on how to do something better
  • a motivational speech or pep talk to an individual or a team so they can win the championship
  • a form of hand holding for when someone is going through a time of distress or challenge, i.e. a way to boost someone up after life has beaten them down
  • another name for counseling or therapy in which the client is guided to express their feelings about the past and thereby resolve the blocks and issues in their life.

The truth is that these things have little to do with what coaching is about. Over the years, I've learned that few people really understand what coaching is about and this even includes people who use the term quite a bit. My aim here is to clarify the true nature, depth and power of the coaching relationship. 


If you've ever spoken to someone whose life has changed from utilizing a coach, you have some idea what I'm speaking about.

Here's the bottom line: If you want to create an extraordinary life and achieve your full potential, utilizing a skilled coach is a virtual necessity. You will soon discover is that coaching is far more accessible and affordable than you might have believed.


Empowerment
Before we can capture the essence of coaching, we need to introduce and define the term empowerment. What does it mean to empower someone? Unfortunately, you will not get very far looking up this word in dictionary because dictionary definitions of this term tend to be about 200 years out of date. Here's our working definition.

To Empower is to spark or ignite (as a catalyst) a person's own power so they can be, do or have whatever they want in their life. Empowerment has the effect of naturally activating a person's already existing resourcefulness, creativity, skill and confidence.

Empowerment is very different from helping, saving or rescuing. In a relationship of empowerment, the guide or coach is acting as a catalyst, a partner in discovery, a compassionate, non judgemental friend and a committed listener able to reflect your promises, commitments, values, standards, ideals, beliefs and life vision. They guide you to make the shifts you want to make.

Empowering relationships can be simple and innocent. They can also be substantive and deep. They are characterized by a foundation of caring, respect and unconditional positive regard.

Please take a moment to reflect on a past or present relationship with this quality. Maybe it was the positive influence of a good friend or teacher. The relationship may have felt special, even pivotal yet it may have seemed to be the result of coincidence. What if... you could create empowering relationships intentionally?

Its possible that the idea of a relationship based on empowerment may be new and will take some to learn and practice. That's okay. The important thing to know is that these skills can be learned and the benefits are very far reaching. In fact, once you have had a taste of what this is like, it is unlikely you'll settle for anything less in the future.

What is Coaching?
Coaching is a dynamic and empowering relationship in which the coach empowers the client to win at whatever games in life they are playing.

I am deliberately using the game metaphor here to make a point. We often have a tendency to get serious about the things that are important to us and in so doing we get a bit heavy. Part of good coaching is helping you lighten up, take things less seriously, and have more fun. As a result, you accomplish more too.

What do I mean by winning? Is there a competition? No! Im using the word winning here to simply represent getting the result or outcome you want. Coaching is result focused. There's a process of growth, but the emphasis is on outcomes.

The desired outcome will vary greatly. For some, it is success with a job, career or business. For others, the focus might be on relationships, family or health or it could also involve changes in emotional patterns, beliefs or spiritual dimensions of life. Coaching can encompass any area and is limited only by what you believe it can be.

How Will Having a Coach be Beneficial?
There are many ways in which a skilled coach can have a profound impact on your life. In part 2 of this blog series, I will share some of the major areas in which coaching relationships have extraordinary impact. By relating these to what is presently happening now, you'll get some clues as to how a coach will be valuable at this time.

Stay tuned and please share!

Is Your Chain Breaking?

Most everyone knows that a chain is only as strong as the weakest link. Yet, most of the time we don't bother reflecting how and why our "chain" (method, system, approach) for doing something is breaking down, i.e. just not working. 

When this occurs and you aren't able to pinpoint the weak links (problem areas), do you simply repeat the same pattern and continue to get the same result?

Do you find yourself becoming increasingly frustrated, demoralized to the point where you lose your motivation and sometimes even give up?

Do you assume that because you haven't been able to resolve your situation, that the best you can do is accept it and become resigned to a diminished outcome and quality of life?

Have you may created a convincing argument for why this reduced outcome is the best that can be achieved (under the circumstances) despite the fact that you've never really opened yourself to an alternate ideas and solutions?

In my experience over many decades, I found that most people prefer to conclude change is not possible rather than opening themselves up to a deeper inquiry and to receiving support to resolve their issue.

Is there some area of your life right now that isn't progressing the way you'd like despite a huge effort and commitment on your part?

What if..

  • Your situation or challenge can be resolved by clarifying exactly where the breakdown is happening and identifying a solution or remedy. 
  • There are others with a different perspective for whom your "problem" is easily solvable?

As an example a man came to be with a case of severe stage fright that he lived with for many years. It prevented him from playing his guitar with groups of people. We were able to resolve his issue in less than 30 minutes using a simple method.

If you're the type of person who insists on solving everything by yourself, you may never discover and that you can have what you want by just changing one item or adding one missing puzzle piece. I call this insistence on solving every problem by yourself, The "Lone Ranger Syndrome". I view this as the most severe form of self-sabotage possible.

In most instances it comes down to a "need to be right." What would you prefer be right about? That your problem is unsolvable or that a different approach can work better? Whatever you believe will become your truth, so it is your choice what you want to be right about.

In Life Crafting, we utilize a powerful collaborative model for co-creation and problem solving which allows breakthroughs to happen frequently and easily.

What breakthrough would you like to have? Would you like to make money doing what you love? Do you believe it is possible? Are you willing to give up being right that it is not possible for you? Are you willing to commit to finding a real solution?

If yes, we're here to help. The Life Crafting Discovery Session is an ideal resource for gaining insights on your situation. You will walk away with new strategies to apply. There is no cost for the session as long as you're sincere and open to a possible relationship. 

Isn't it time for you to eliminate the weak links in your chain and get what you really want?

The Role and Importance of Imagination in Your Life

Most people discount the role and importance of imagination in their life. If you're an artist, designer or musician, you likely know this role because you live with it and use it consciously on a daily basis. If not you may be completely oblivious to it.

Imagination is in fact is the most important human skill underlying every creation from the most mundane to the most extraordinary.  It is one of the most vital resources regardless of the situation you are in. 

What Makes Imagination So Important and Powerful?
Before something can exist in the physical universe, it must exist in your consciousness as a possibility. You can think of the possibility as a space or clearing in which something can be created.

One example is building a house. It cannot be built on cluttered land. The land must be cleared and flat before construction can begin. Right?

Growing Crops is another example. The soil is prepared, the seeds planted then the rain and sunlight do their magic. This a process of cultivation or creating space for the plants or crops to grow through the power of nature.

Did it ever occur to you that the same power of nature exists in YOU? Yes, it does! How do you prepare your soil and plant your seeds for what you want to grow?

The resource in you for doing this is imagination which is your innate ability to see something new you desire coming into existence.

Once visualized, you can then begin to feel what it will be like when this desire is realized. The clearer your image and the stronger your feelings, the greater the forces are that are set into motion to make it real. Imagination is your starting point.

Imagination is More Important than Knowledge
One of the most well known quotes of Albert Einstein is: "Imagination is more important than knowledge." Why would a man whose achievements were so based on knowledge and advanced skills, say this?

Because he had an intimate awareness of the process of creation. Beyond Mathematics and Physics, he had an intutiive knowing of how the universe works and he wanted you and I to know this too so we could apply it to our most important and cherished goals and dreams.

In Life Crafting, we guide you to discover and experience the awesome power you have within you to create your reality. It begins with you gaining full access to the power of your imagination greater than you ever have before.

Would you like to get a glimpse of what this is like? You can do this in your Life Crafting Strategy Session. It is complimentary for you if you're sincere about making money doing what you love.

The Nature of Breakthroughs

What does it mean to experience a Breakthrough? We're going to consider a breakthrough to be one or more of the following:

A significant shift in perspective and life experience; a leap forward in skill or mastery; an expanded ability to create your desired results; increased cash flow or profit 

Now write down a desired breakthrough you're wanting now. It can be in any area of your life, more income, more love, more balance and peace, better health and vitality, etc. I encourage you to be outrageous and bold.

The first thing you're likely to notice is that from the vantagepoint of where you're standing now, your desired result may seem very difficult or even unattainable. Am I right? Can a caterpillar imagine being a butterfly? Of course not!

So, trying to get from where you are to where you want to be is not going to be achieved by being reasonable or logical. On an emotional level, your result will likely feel beyond your grasp especially if you're feeling stressed now. So how do you make this breakthrough happen? The steps below will give you a roadmap but you'll need to follow them diligently. We're here to help if you'd like.

Step 1: Write down the "reasons" it cannot or will not happen. Some examples might be, it takes too much time, I'm not smart enough, I lack confidence, etc. Every one of your reasons is simply a belief even though you may have strong feelings connected to them which make them feel VERY real.

Step 2: Allow yourself some time to FEEL whatever feelings are connected with each of your reasons and also feel the overall impossibility of what you want. Whether you realize this or not, your willingness to FEEL these feelings (at a body level) moves you forward to your desired breakthrough and...contrary to popular belief this will not get in the way of you reaching your goal.

Step 3: Start imagining the result you desire. Allow yourself to SEE and FEEL your result as already done to whatever degree you can. Before anything can exist in your physical reality, the possibility and the desire for it needs to exist inside of you. Once this happens, even if only as a small seedling, it can grow and get bigger, more real, more achievable and with more energy and power.

Step 4: Once the energy has grown sufficiently, the magic begins to happen. Some call it the law of attraction. The name doesn't matter. You will notice creative ideas start to emerge, people who might be resources come to mind, chance meetings happen and you start to think of google searches you can do to locate what you're seeking. Bit by bit, the outcome and breakthrough becomes more real and along with this, unexpected insights show up. Sometimes the very thing you've been seeking even falls into your lap. 

Step 5: While going through these steps, it is important for you to maintain a patient, confident and unattached attitude. If you are preoccupied with the result and allow yourself to get frustrated because it is not happening fast enough, this will slow the process down. It is better to just assume it is done and go about your daily activities and allow the universe to do its magic.

Step 6: The last and most important step is to get support. Surround yourself with people who validate you and your desired breakthrough and support you in taking whatever action steps are needed to move you forward. At Life Crafting, we're eager to support you and we have a wide range of tools and resources that will accelerate your breakthrough significantly.

The starting point is the Life Crafting Strategy Session. For a limited time, we're offering it at no cost providing you're sincere about moving forward in your life. This session is a powerful 1-1 phone session that will rock your world in many ways. Click here to learn more and schedule your session. Do it today!

You've Been in Sales Since The Day You Were Born

I often encounter people who claim to not be good or comfortable with sales. This reveals a lack of awareness of how virtually all your interactions are sales conversations often in disguise. Do you believe that sales is intentionally trying to convince someone to buy something?

What if... this was completely false and actually a viewpoint very detrimental to your overall success regardless of the field or industry you're in. The truth is that you've actually been in Sales since the day you were born!

How could that be, you ask? Well on the day you were born you successfully sold the idea to everyone around you that you were cute, lovable and adorable. You accomplished this without any language or cognitive ability and with no awareness that you were 'doing' anything. 

As you grew and developed, you learned other "sales techniques" that were also quite natural, instinctual and unconscious. For example, you learned that crying got you attention and other behaviors generated other desirable responses from those around you. 

Bit by bit your sales skills increased but at no point did you ever believe that you were 'in sales'. Isn't this fascinating? 

The bottom line is that you're always selling something. The only question is whether you know what it is, who is buying it and whether it is profitable. 

What would be the consequences of knowing all of these things and being masterful with this process? What impact would this have on your overall success? What if.. your effectiveness in sales conversations had nothing to do with money?

By making all this deliberate, every relationship you have or will ever have, becomes profoundly transformed. Most significantly, your ability to make money in any job, business, industry or human activity becomes elevated to an extraordinary level quickly. 

Sales becomes easy and fun with the added bonus of knowing in your heart that you're sharing your greatest gifts and truly serving others regardless whether they 'buy' anything from you or not.

Is it difficult to make this shift? No! It is remarkably easy and mostly involves recognizing the gifts you already have.  If you'd like to learn how this applies to your business, I invite you to schedule your Life Crafting Strategy Session available at no cost for a limited time.

What is Your Greatest Asset?

In the 20th century, your greatest asset was cash or the equivalent, i.e. anything that could easily be converted to cash. These were called liquid assets.

 
In the 21st century this has totally changed. Today, your greatest asset is your network and your relationships. Why? Because it is the quantity and quality of your network that determines your ability to generate profits no matter what industry you're involved in.
 
As an example, consider a company that creates a mobile game app and gives it away for free. Massive numbers of people download the app. As people play the game, they need a particular "credit" to win. They can earn these credits slowly or get them much faster by paying for them. Guess what happens.
 
The logical perception is that since it is "just a game" people would not pay for these credits. If this is what you guessed would happen, you'd be wrong!!
 
The actual outcome is that this company wound up generating $1,000,000 per day in sales all derived from people paying for credits in the game! I'm not joking. On top of that, Apple is also making $300,000 per day which is their cut of the profit. Are you catching on here to a profound trend?
 
Here's the core principle. Once you've established communication with a large network, you can introduce many different products and services and harvest massive profits. 
 
Additionally, since being a part of the network is valuable (like Facebook), the network expands virally and explosively on its own thus creating even more customers for the additional products to be introduced.
 
Now given the above, ask yourself, what will have the greatest impact on my financial future?
Will it be continuing to market my skills, experience and education as I was taught to do all my life or will it be my ability to expand my network and thereby open myself to explosive profits passively?
 
There's a lot more to this story but for now I'm going to pause and allow you to digest what I've shared. Let it sink in. 
 
Post your questions and we'll soon take this to the next step.
