If You Are Not Making Money You Are Doing It Wrong!

 

Business Success doesn’t happen by accident, it takes careful planning. As a business coach I know firsthand how important an outside opinion can be. It delivers an unbiased, objective opinion to any business owners Success oriented goals.

How a business owner influences the business determines their chances of Success. A business coach can help you with Time Management, Goal Setting, Budgeting, Business and Marketing Planning as well as Strategies. Your business Success is about understanding you and your businesses strengths and weaknesses and making changes to ensure a Successful Business for years to come.

Every great performer, whether an elite athlete, business legend or performing superstar, is surrounded by coaches and advisors. As the world of business moves faster and gets more competitive, it is difficult to keep up with industry changes, innovations in sales, and management strategies, among other things.

This means business coaching isn’t a frivolous purchase – it’s a well-thought out, sound investment in your company’s future.

Business coaching is like consulting, but the difference is business coaching teaches the business owner what’s wrong and how to fix it so problems don’t arrive in the future. With years of successful experience that can provide valuable insight, a Business Coach can help you develop long-term and short term goals and strategies, as well as improve your business in several areas – perhaps even some overlooked areas.

I invite you to a Complimentary “Success Strategy Session” to show you how I can help your business be Successful for years to come.

For years I have watch small businesses struggle with their systems or lack of, ie: operational, management, human resources, asset management, expense controls, break even points, and so on. I have been Business Coaching for over 15 years and kept getting frustrated with the fact that so many small business owners did not have the resource that larger businesses had. I have been working on this for quite some time and have put together the best of both worlds! I am introducing you to my new company: Logic-Sol, we have blended coaching and consulting together and came up with Coach-Sulting!

The Change Indicator

I think we all face this situation at some point in our lives when we have to evaluate just what we are doing and where it is leading us. You know those times when we have to look at where our career, business, or life and ask, What I am I getting out of this? If you take a step back you will notice that the thing you are doing or involved in is not giving you the satisfaction it started out giving. That is the first indicator it is time for a Change!

One of the first things I do when it is time to reevaluate a situation, is take a step back and ask myself is this giving me the same felling of accomplishment as when I started it? Am I getting the same satisfaction out of it as I once did? Does it still give me the feeling of a “Win Win” situation? If the answers are no to any or all of those questions I know it is time for a change!

I have learned over the years that when we do something and are not getting the same sense of fulfillment we have a tendency not to really give it our all! That is when I know it is time to move on (move forward)! At that point there is really no reason to stay involved with it. If you are not getting what you need you are also not giving what you should! So in short no one is “Winning” and that my friend is the Indicator for Change!

I recently went through just such a situation and let me tell you it was not easy because I really liked being involve in this organization but as time went on I watched them head a direction that did not resonate with my beliefs and I was faced with a tough decision: stay involved and try to help or cut my ties and put my effort towards an organization where I truly could use me talents skills and abilities to benefit the community!

Regardless of what you are involved in whether it is volunteering, career, of just life in general if you are not getting as much out of it as you are giving you need to change. We never give as much as we can when we are not getting the same in return!

Don’t be afraid of change because it give you a renewed vigor for life, a new challenge, it excites you and allows you to move forward! And believe me moving forward is always a good thing!

If you are stuck and feel it’s time for a change but are having trouble getting started leave me a comment and I will give you some simple steps to start you on your road to change or if you would like to keep it more personal and private you can email me direct at terry@tghcoach.com

I wish you the best and have a great day of change<

Creating A New Habit!

As we go through life we have developed certain behaviors that do not serve us well. I refer to them a Negative Behaviors. Throughout the years we continue to repeat them until they become habit (routine) and we start repeating those behaviors without even being aware of them. When you become able to be Aware of those negative behaviors you can start on the road to replacing them. The key to replacing the negative behaviors is Awareness!

Here is a strategy to replacing those behaviors and creating new Positive Behaviors and committing them to route memory!

Step 1: Practice being Aware of Negative thoughts

Step 2: Once you catch yourself thinking a negative thought use the phrase “Cancel Thought”

Step 3: Now take that negative thought and restate it in a Positive affirmation statement.

Step 4: Continue doing this until you notice you are having less and less negative thoughts.

By using this technique you will create a new habit (routine)!

 

Morals and Intergrity are still Alive!

I love to hear stories like this one! I have a client who owns a Kitchen and Bath Remodeling business. He has been a client of mine for about 2 years now and I get to hear a lot of the issues that come along with his industry.

Recently he told me a story of a past customer of his that called him with a problem. You see he had completely remodeled the customers bathroom just over a year ago. The customer called him to tell him that his flooring was showing water damage and was concerned there was a problem some where under the floor. My client told him he would be right over, when he arrived and took a look at the flooring he knew it was coming from the toilet. It was a broken seal and it was constantly leaking.

My client told his customer he would make it right. So he brought his crew in and tore out the flooring and removed the toilet. As he got to looking into the problem he realized it was probably not the fault of his workmanship but rather some how in the past year some one or some thing had hit the toilet hard enough to move it slightly from its original position.

Regardless my client reassured his customer that he would fix it a no charge.

After a couple of days he finished replacing the flooring, resetting the toilet. This warranty work as he calls it cost him about $1500.00.

Finally he called his customer in to explain what he had done to repair all the damage and to do a final walk through. As he stepped his customer through the process his customer offered to split the cost with him! My client thanked him for the offer but refused the offer.

You see my client believes his company should always stand it’s workmanship.

What I truly loved about this story was Morals and Integrity was on both sides: my client and his customer!

Morals and Integrity are still Alive!!!

If you have a story like this one I would love to hear it, leave me your story in the comment section!

“To Do” or not “To Do” Lists that is!

I have watched so many people ponder, contemplate, do, not do, research, analyze, and ultimately not To Do”.

Why do so many find it so hard to do a simple thing like make a list of the things they need “To Do”?

Maybe it is because if they “To Do” they will now have “To Do” it!

Maybe it is the fear of failure, maybe it is the simple fear of having to commit to doing it now that it is written down.

Maybe it is they need “To Do ” something but that would mean they would have to follow through, or maybe they are just lazy and have a fear of taking action.

Maybe they don’t have time.

Maybe they have to much “To Do” already and adding a “To Do” list is one more thing “To Do”!

Me personally I have never liked the title “To Do” list. It sounds like something I still need “To Do”!

That is why I make “Do/Done” lists! Now that tells me I need “To Do” the list and get it “Done”.

So if you have had troubles making a “To Do” list try making a “Do/Done” List instead!

See what results you get and let me know! I would love to hear your “To Do” stories

or better yet your “Do/Done” stories!

Until next time,

Your Make You Think Coach Terry

Stop The Stories In Your Head

How many times have you been faced with a situation such as a networking meeting, presentation, or social gathering and before you ever got there you start building a story in your head. You started trying to determine the outcome, you started to reflect back to the last time you had to get up in front of other people and remembered how uncomfortable you got. You started to associate your old feelings and fears to this new situation you are rapidly approaching.

As you start to tell yourself stories about what you are going to say and do you realize your stress is getting stronger and stronger! Your fears about saying something dumb or stupid begin to grow! You start to replay that scenario over and over in your head until it starts to feel like reality!

How many of you has this ever happened to? I know it used to happen to me until I discovered a very simple technique that helped me overcome the negative stories in my head. The following is a step by step technique to getting rid of those negative stories in your head and replacing them with stories that will help you become more comfortable with speaking in front of a group of people no matter what the situation is.

Step 1 Start to practice recognizing when you are telling yourself a negative story.

Step 2 When you recognize you are telling yourself a negative story STOP immediately!

Step 3 Use the words “Cancel Thought” say them to yourself as a trigger for you to stop telling yourself the story.

Step 4 Rephrase the story by making it positive with a positive outcome.

Keep practicing this technique until it becomes second nature to you. The more you re-enforce this new way of approaching situations the more you will be able to control your stress over them. The better you will become at controlling the outcome. The more successful you will become at delivering a confident message about your subject matter.

Try this for 30 days and track your progress! I would love to hear you success story!

Committing To Change In 2011

Welcome to the new year!

In this edition of my newsletter I want to give you something to think about to get your New Year started off right and let you know some of what I am up to for the first quarter of 2011!

First off we all know Committing to Change is the Cornerstone of Growth!
For some of us the word Commitment is a scary thing. It means we have to face our fears, it means we have to do things we know we should, but don’t.
I some cases we actually make a commitment but then fall short on the action it takes to make the changes we need in order to be successful.
The bottom line is we need to not only make the commitment to change but we need to make a plan to change and implement it.
Without Change there is no Growth!
Here are some steps to help you make a Commitment to Change and Achieve Growth!

Step 1) Make a list of the things in your life you want to change. (list them by priority)
Step 2) Take the first couple and write down how you will achieve your goals.
Step 3) Post them in places you will be forced to see them everyday. (visual cues really help)
Step 4) Constantly remind yourself of the end goal. (the end goal can be a powerful motivator)
Step 5) Do not get disillusioned when it does not happen as fast as you want it to. (old habits are hard to break)
Step 6) Get a Mentor, Coach, or Accountability Buddy to hold you accountable for your progress.
Step 7) After you have mastered the first couple move to the next couple on your list and start over.

Remember to be patient, it took you along time to develop those bad habit. Don’t expect to change them over night!

Okay, so you have looked at yourself and decided what you want to change, but remember that is only one part of change and growth.
Take a look at outside resources to help you along your path to Growth such as self improvement books, videos, movies, seminars, workshops.
Try surrounding yourself with individuals that have an area of expertise regarding the things you want to learn more about.  Ask them to teach or mentor you on the subject. Look for opportunities to help you along your journey of self improvement and growth.

Just like you I am always looking for ways to Change and Grow!
That is why I love doing one on one coaching, facilitating and hosting workshops, guest speaking, facilitating coaching groups and making presentations because they allow me to meet and surround myself with people I can learn from that are like minded!

Here is a list of some events and opportunities for me to meet and learn from you:

Upcoming Workshops

January 11th “Open your Eyes to Networking”
This workshop is a look at other opportunities to network for business as well as personal gain outside the traditional networking we have become so used to.

January 19th “Understanding the basics of Business”
This is a 4 week coarse covering “Basics of Business”, “Understanding Financial Statements”, “Basics of Marketing”, Time Management versus’ Time Efficiency”.

February 8th “Goal Setting”

(If you are not familiar with Brian Tracy please google him. I know you will be as excited as I am)

A Child, A Playground, The Sale!

Do you remember what it was like on the playground when you were a child?

Recently I took my daughter to one of our local parks on a Saturday to give mommy a break. When we arrived my daughter was so excited to see a bunch of children already playing. I was barely able to get the car stopped and her out of the car seat before she was running to the swings. I walked over to some benches next to the swings and sat down to keep an eye on her. As I sat there watching her approach a little girl swinging I reflected back to the innocence of my childhood. You remember, the days when we were not afraid to approach someone we did not even know and ask them if they wanted to play? The days when nothing would deter us from getting what we wanted.

I sat there and watched my daughter approach the little girl and ask her if she wanted to be friends and play with her? The little girl said No! Now here is the part that really got me thinking. My daughter was not phased by the little girls refusal to play with her, she just walked away and went to the next child and asked the same question! And low and behold the next child said yes, so off they went over to the sand box to play. A few seconds later the first little girl came over and asked if she could play with them! All three of them started playing together, before I knew it there was about 5 children all playing in the sand box together that lasted about an hour.

The longer I sat there watching the children playing together the more I thought about how we as adults become inhibited, insecure, and afraid of rejection to the point we hold ourselves back from “Closing the Sale”. Whatever the sale might be to us, whether it might be making new friends, networking for business, cold calling, or just meeting new people. Through the years our insecurities grow and we never seem to be able to get out of our comfort zones.

We start being concerned what someone else will think of us, we feel what we have to offer or say has no value, we start to “Fear Rejection” and it continues to keep us from getting what we want or need in our personal and professional lives.

Here is techniques you can try to get over your fears:

1) Think about the stories you build in your head, do they have a foundation of truth? (Probably not!)

2) Challenge yourself! (pick one thing that you are afraid of and actually do it.)

3) Analyze your feelings after doing it. (did you notice it was not as bad as you thought it would be?)

4) Now do it again! (did you notice it was easier the second time.)

I summary we can not let our fears control us! They are nothing more than Fears, they have no Foundation! We are the ones that gave them their power over us and we are the ones that can take the control back!

Just like my daughter and the children on the playground we can get anything we want as long as we do not allow our fears to control our goals. We can determine the outcome by simply reverting back to the days when we had no “Fear” and got what we wanted!
