What I Learned from a Gym Locker About Expectations
When I go to the gym, I stop in the locker room to put my extra things in a locker. I noticed one day that I had a habit of hesitantly opening each locker to see if it was free.
Sometimes I would find a free one first off and sometimes I would have to open several to find one empty. But it was that sense of hesitancy that I suddenly realized one day was always there. Continue reading “What I Learned from a Gym Locker About Expectations”
8 Great Ways to Finish the Year Strong
The weeks of Christmas and New Years are usually a time when people (especially employees) go into “coast mode,” just doing the bare minimum of work until the end of the year.
But if you’re a small business owner or sales professional, it’s important to not let the opportunities of these last 2 weeks slip past you because you become “complacent.” In fact, you may have “year-end sales quotas” to fulfill–either from your employer or from yourself (hopefully you set an annual income goal at the beginning of the year).

Q&A–How Do I Choose a Good Niche Market?
When doing a VIP Day with a new business client recently, she asked the million-dollar question–one that will impact the success of her start-up business at the very core:
How do I choose a niche market that will be right for me?
If you don't get this right, it can cost you a lot of time, sleep, stress and money. Which is why I focus a good deal of time and teaching on this topic with all my clients (even established ones if they are struggling to make a profit).
Aside from finding a market you can be passionate about helping and have the proven ability to help them, there are 6 criteria we look at that must be met in order to have a "viable niche." If any one of them is missing, you must change the niche. (And make sure you understand what a "niche" is in the first place)

HOW TO NOT WASTE TIME ON BAD PROSPECTS
(YET STILL BE OF SERVICE)
This topic came up in my local Women's Money MasterMind meeting today. I did some coaching around it for the ladies and thought it would be relevant to you, too.
