What’s Your Referral Strategy?

When you look at the sales leads you’re generating, are they of the quality you need? Chances are, you’d be better off focusing on strategies to generate more referrals. Yet when I ask business owners what their referral strategy is I’m often met with a blank stare. Let me be clear: A referral strategy does not…

The London 2012 Olympics - What's Your View?

There's been no shortage of opinion about the cost of the Olympics and the press are jumping all over the slightest of problems (such as not enough security and showing the opposing flag of two countries still at war...any little thing these days!).

On a personal level I can't wait for it all to begin.  From a tourism point of view it's magnificent to see yet more images of our great Capital being beamed across the World and the venues look incredible.  I have clients not far…

The Recession Obsession

The main way that recession holds back businesses is not about banks and lending, it’s about attitude and beliefs. If you think there’s a recession and that there is less business out there - most people batten down the hatches and go into hibernation. But it’s probably the worst thing to do.

Take…

Is it to much to ask for help?

You might not realize that asking for help is a much under rated positive action.

People have that common conception that asking for help is a weakness, but, if you don't know something then how are you suppose to grow without this help?

By not asking for this help you would be still sat there worrying more and more, that little voice inside going overtime within your head. This negative action of not asking for help will just build more and more…

Smile - It Won't Kill You!

As part of my Power of Positivity course I will talk about the positive effects that come with just smiling.



A smile costs you nothing but sends out lots of positive vibes.



Smile as often as possible throughout your day even if you do not feel like smiling. You will find that once you do start to smile you will release happy chemicals within your body, giving you that nice buzz of happiness.



As you walk to work or around…

Train to be the best you can be!

“Never wish your job were easier, wish you were better” - Jim Rohn



I like that quote, but I don’t consider ‘wishing’ to be a viable strategy! You have to work at being better.



Gaining knowledge and practicing skills will make you more productive, and that means more profitable. Learning and…

Are you sure you are managing your business well?

 

The British Chamber of Commerce states that businesses are growing in spite of a weak economy in the UK.  SMEs can and should play a significant part in improving growth but good management strategies can make the difference between success and failure.  These strategies have to be learned but as a recent paper from Stanford University Management Practice and Productivity: Why they matter concludes, many…

Why employers should exercise caution when screening candidates' social media activity

While it's fairly normal for employers to look at candidates' LinkedIn profiles (and that's what they're essentially designed for), how many employers do a quick Google or Facebook check on potential employees?  Quite a few, I suspect.

But this could seriously backfire - not just in respect of job applicants but also where existing employees are concerned. 

Here's an interesting article on the pitfalls of social media screening:…

Tired? Exhausted? Deflated? You need a Repletion Massage!!

How often do we feel exhausted and run down - depleted? How often do we ignore the signals of tiredness at our own peril and plough on with what we have to do?

The truth is that if we do not give our body what it needs and cries for when tired, we take the rish to progress on to more serious illnesses. We need to learn to take time out and listen to our body, we need to understand the power of REPLETION, wich could sometimes avoid us years of…

Want to get onto the first page of Google?

I would say that 95% of the businesses that I meet are massively under achieving on the Internet. They don’t understand how to use it, they get minimal traffic to their website and they are no- where on Google. In truth they are missing out on a ‘pot of gold’.

If you are not doing anything on the 18th July please click this link for more information.

Discount for Cases & Accessories for iPad, iPhone, Blackberry, Android and other devices

Hi all, a friend of mine (James Bennett) runs a mobile accessories website for all the main devices; iPhone, iPad, Blackberry, Android devices etc.

He recently put a discount code on here for everyone to benefit from.  You save a whopping 15% which just reduced a fantastic iPad case for me down from £34.99 to just £29.74.

Begin again

You can always start your day over.  I don’t mean you can turn back the clock, you can’t undo the past.  You can learn to acknowledge it, accept it, let it go, learn from it and move on.  I’m not saying that it is always easy to achieve.  I do believe it is worth doing whatever is required to set yourself free of your past stories, if they are limiting your ability to enjoy life.  Learning to dance within and wear life like a loose garment.

Only yesterday, I found myself…

Recommendation Marketing

If I tell you I’m good... well I would say that wouldn’t I. But if someone else tells you I’m good... well it’s probably true.
