Finding Your Purpose

Where do you begin? So, you have a fantastic idea for a business.  You are over the moon about it and start telling everyone about it, announcing it on Social Media, reserving the URL, creating a Facebook Page…the whole works.  Then a week later, you have a different idea, a different direction you want to go.  So… you start chasing that dream. Maybe this happens a few times. Guess what?  You are not alone.  Many people do this over and over until they find their true purpose… what actually will excite them for the long haul. Throughout the years, I have asked people if they know their life mission.  I have received an array of answers.  When I ask specifically if they are fulfilling their mission by doing what they love career-wise, I get one of two answers:  “yes” or “no”. The “no” people tell me they work so they …

Stop Ignoring Them?

Social Media can be tricky, however once you get the basics rules down growth is endless! Over and over and over I see this mistake being made on Social Media.  The mistake that could grow a companies following and their life. I share this from personal experience, watching and working with countless businesses.  It is usually the very first mistake I discuss when coaching and consulting.   When people start taking these simple actions, they are often blown away with the power they provide. Curious? Let me explain with an example.  You enter an elevator and someone says hello, and asks you how you are.  You ignore that person.  You then go to the grocery store, and the cashier asks you a question, again, you ignore that person. Hmmmm…..how do you think the person feels?  How would or could a person function in life doing this?  They probably would not …

Success via Twitter

Posted on by Tracy in socialmedia | No Comments

One of the benefits of Twitter in my biz (and life) is this amazing connection to people all over the globe! When I speak about humanizing businesses via Social Media / Marketing, people ask me all the time- “but really, how has Twitter put money in your pocket”? I LOVE that question! One example; I had a potential new client seek out our services, this client was rather large involving 5 businesses. I was ‘stuck’ and a bit fearful on my proposal and moving forward. One of my Twitter connections is a biz consultant on the East Coast. Because of Twitter we have built a relationship. I was able to reach out to him via the old PHONE and discuss ways to prepare the proposal. His help was invaluable, as is his continued support on Twitter that is helping to grow me my business. Twitter has increased my data base, income, …

Don’t Forget to Ask

Posted on by Tracy in socialmedia | No Comments

Oh, the mystery of Social Media! How does one use social media to attract clients, customers, and buyers as a means to sustaining one’s livelihood? I was on a coaching call with an entrepreneur yesterday. As I was reviewing her Facebook business page, I noticed that she was attracting thousands of followers and generating hundreds of comments, likes and shares on each of her posts!   I usually don’t see this kind of action on a business page and was thrilled for her! I then asked the question: “How are your sales via Facebook?”  Dead silence followed. She said that she had sold only two products via Facebook in over a year. I asked her if she wanted to know the secret to getting more sales via social media and, of course, she said “Yes!” I told her that she must begin to ASK people to buy her product! If she asked and also provided her customers with directions to her product’s landing page, I knew she would see …

The POWERFUL Gift of SAYING NO

Posted on by Tracy in Coaching, communicate, dogs, Facebook, Facebook Tools, growth, Social Community, socialmedia, Success | No Comments

Are you building a business and have not a clue how to meet people and get leads? Maybe you say yes to groups that meet once a week or once a month. Maybe this works for you and you love the socialization. Maybe you, like me, have a hard time connecting, you feel drained after these events, you do not feel that you want to refer some of these folks. However, you feel obligated. You ALWAYS feel obligated… so you keep saying YES. You say yes and your stomach churns. Voices run around in your head saying, “Why did I commit to this?” “Why do I go to this every week and feel this way?” “How else would I make connections?” “I must force myself to do these events and continue to hope for referrals.” I have news for you! It is ok to pause before saying yes. My rule …

What You See is What You Get

Everyone is confident in their first amendment right: freedom of speech, religion and press, but just because you’re allowed to say and publish something, doesn’t mean it’s always the best idea to do so. With the Internet excessively progressing over time, more opportunities for self-portrayal become available for anyone and everyone to view. And it’s these new social networking sites, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and blogging sites, that have the power to exploit people in ways that can haunt them forever. There are those pictures of the beer pong table from college, or that crazy spring break trip with a group of friends that was too much fun to not share with everyone on your Facebook friends’ list, but what about a potential future boss scrolling through those? Some of us are victims of excessive tagging. If you’re a Facebook fiend, you know what I mean… you go to …
