And I Will Fly

If you’re like me, then you can’t help but be touched when you hear about someone that’s suffering from some kind of serious illness or disability.  Particularly, where there’s the distinct possibility that their condition could prove to be life threatening or could lead to them having to face what, to us, are seemingly impossible challenges.  And, unless you’ve faced that kind of a scenario, yourself, it’s difficult to imagine how you would react. But people do react in very different ways and some of them are, truly, inspirational.  Not only in the way that they face their situation but how ...

It’s Not What You Say, It’s HOW You Say It

When it comes to marketing or copywriting, there’s no doubt that we can’t afford to ignore the power of words and how we use them to get our message across.  Whether it’s the written word or the spoken word is, largely, immaterial but how we put them together, how we frame our words, who’s perspective we consider and how we engage the emotions are all important elements in our communication. Now, I don’t know whether the following video is genuine or somewhat contrived.  Either way, it clearly demonstrates that it’s not what you say, it’s how you say it that makes ...

Why have a Multiple Income Stream Strategy (M.I.S.S)

Times have changed, the economy has changed, the job market has changed, people have changed and technology is developing at an unprecedented rate.  As a result of these changes, general opinion suggests that we can no longer expect to have a job for life.  And there’s more change ahead! It’s widely estimated that the average person will change jobs 10 – 15 times during their working life and that may well include 2 or more complete changes in career path.  Of course, some of these changes may be taken completely voluntarily, as part of our career development strategy, but the chances ...

The Don’t Quit Poem – Inspirational

It’s certainly true that we all have challenges at one time or another and, sometimes, these challenges can make us question ourselves in all kinds of different ways.   In fact, I recently had such a challenge facing me. At times like this, it’s really nice to know that there’s always someone there to remind us of what’s important and where our focus should be – even though they may not realise what they’ve done or the impact they’ve had! A very good friend posted this poem on Linked in today – and the timing was perfect.   It’s one of my favourites ...

How Great Leaders Inspire Action

We all know how important communication is in business but how do great leaders inspire us to take action?  How do great companies inspire us to take action and part with our hard earned cash to purchase their products and services?  And how can you learn from them so that you can do the same and inspire your staff, your colleagues and your clients? Simon Sinek asked himself this very same question and, as a result of his research, he discovered a pattern in the way that great leaders communicate.  That led to him writing an excellent book, Start with Why, ...

Do You Own A Business Or A Job?

If you run your own business you may think that this is a silly question but bare with me because it’s, actually, a really important one – for several reasons. The best definition I’ve ever come across as to what a business is, or should be, came from a friend at Action Coach.  They define a business as; ‘A commercial, profitable enterprise that works without you’ and, if your business works without you, then you really do own one. Another question that will help you understand what I’m talking about is this; How long could you be away from your business before you stop earning ...

Marketing ~ Some Things Change, Some Don’t

I’ve been working in the field of marketing for over 30 years now and it’s always been a fast-paced, highly creative and ever changing world.  But, since the advent of the internet, email, websites, search engines and, most recently, social media the pace of change has never been so fast. The range of media that’s now available to help businesses market their wares is huge and can be, somewhat, confusing. If you know what you’re doing and you get it right, the rewards can be substantial but it’s also very easy to get things wrong and waste a lot of money. For example, ...

Be Careful What You Set Your Heart On

Be careful what you set your heart on …. for it surely will be yours. This is one of my all time favourite quotations and it relates directly to the Law of Attraction (I’m a great believer in the Law of Attraction).  It contains a promise, almost a guarantee, but that promise is qualified with a warning, urging us to ‘Be careful‘. Let me explain how I interpret the message that’s contained within this quotation. The promise part,  ‘For it surely will be yours‘, is simple.  It tells you that whatever you truly set your heart on will be yours.  No if’s.  No ...

Personal Development ~ It’s An Attitude Thing!

I discovered the philosophy of Personal Development at the age of 18.  I was working at a Ford Main Dealer in an administrative role when I was given the opportunity to train in sales. I attended a residential Sales Training Course at Ford’s Training Centre in the UK and it was while I was on that course that I started to realise how much I loved learning new skills and how important it was for me to perform at my best.  Of course, this may well have been fueled by the fact that, once I started working in sales, I also ...

Network Marketing ~ What The Experts Are Saying

Network Marketing, otherwise known as Multi Level Marketing or MLM, is coming of age as a Marketing Strategy. Many Network Marketing company’s experience stunning levels of success, as do a growing number of their distributors, so why are there still people out there that remain highly sceptical of what Network Marketing has to offer the average person? Network Marketing is now taught as a highly effective Marketing Strategy in many of the world’s top business schools and many top business people have become involved in Network Marketing and advocate it as being the average person’s best chance of creating financial independence for ...
