1. Visualize your goal and what you desire
This marketing tip will actually set the tone for all the other steps. When you wake up and before you go to sleep, put yourself in the space of ALREADY achieving your goals. Meditate, feel, taste, and smell the outcome. If you do it right this part will become so real to you that it will naturally move you to the next step.
2. Income producing activities
This particular marketing tip is considered a compromising area for most. Some think that checking email, organizing files, desk or office, planning the day, training others, and talking on the phone about any and everything; is considered being productive. Not true at all. The only TWO things that make you money are: 1. taking massive action on marketing and 2. speaking to qualified prospects on the phone. Period point blank end of story.
3. Personal development, self-mastery
Work on yourself more than you work on your business. This means every single day reading or listening or watching something that will better you as a leader. There is always enough time in the day. Turn off the tv, put down the newspapers and garbage novels. At lunch if you have an iPod or iPhone put on your headsets and listen to Jim Rohn, Brian Tracy, Tony Robbins, Zig Ziglar, or whoever you choose. Allow their words and beliefs to transform you into a better leader.
4. Mastermind with other leaders
Put yourself in the position of being surrounded by other high-caliber professionals. There is much to be said by being around other like-minded professionals that may be step ahead of you as a leader. Learn through the collaborative efforts from the professionals who have the skills and business success plans that are similar to those you aspire to possess.
5. Position myself at the top
Always play from the top! If you don’t have the money to get at the top then work your butt off finding ways to get it or to climb your way through the ranks. Leaders understand that those who typically get to the top take business seriously. They play to win! And winning means more business, satisfaction and let’s face it – money!

In the beginning or Day 1.
Last week, I kicked off another; what appears to be a really strong Masterminds and Mentor group! The anticipation of what to expect with a new group of makes me both excited and nervous as we start out.
It excites me to think that soon all new ideas and possibilities will be shared and discussed. New friendships will be formed. Accountabilities will be held. Business as they know it; will change. That really can jazz me up because quite frankly and selfishly, I know how I will hugely benefit from the experience of others.
Occasionally I wonder about whether or not there will be conflict; personality and/or other; and whether or not I am equipped to handle the unknown. Fortunately for me, I tend to look at conflict as an opportunity and a motivator. I believe that as adults and as business owners, we have to respect that there are others out there who are and think differently than we do and that it is imperative to embrace as an opportunity for ourselves and our business. The question is whether or not others would view conflict the same way and if not, are flexible or not to work through the issues. Stimulating thought.
My challenge from the beginning of day 1 is to create a sense of excitement about pursuing and taking to the next level the dream that each person presents. And to take each issue or barrier and turn it in to an action item that will have a positive and lasting result. And lastly, to share skills and tricks of the trade that the participants can utilize and implement on their own time and on a going forward basis. Day one sets the stage for day two. And so on and so on.
This second group of masterminds and mentors is a great group and we are going to have some serious fun while we work! Who says work can’t be fun?
