Thanks to his social anxiety and a deep-seated fear of personal judgement my guest Tom Bailey spent the first 25 years of his life avoiding public speaking and anything to do with presentations. This avoidance saw him launch multiple businesses that never even saw the light of day simply because he was too afraid to tell anyone he had launched. … What if they didn't like it?  … What if no one wanted to listen to what he had to say?  … What if they didn't like him because of his accent? These were the sorts of questions plaguing Tom's mind and ultimately holding him back. Fast forward 25 years (along with some serious inner work) and you will see someone who now understands the impact that public speaking and presentations can have; on both business relationships and careers overall.

She Did It Her Way

Hello my beautiful friends, welcome back to another episode of the podcast. This week I'm going to be talking about how to make money with affiliate marketing. We will be diving into how affiliate marketing works, the benefits of affiliate marketing, how to decide which programs to be an affiliate for, how to organize your affiliate links, and finally sharing some final notes on best practices when it comes to affiliate marketing. This episode will only scratch the surface of everything you can possibly do with affiliate marketing, but I want this to serve as a starting point for anyone who wants to start using affiliate marketing in their business or wants to better utilize it. For the purpose of this episode, we're discussing how affiliate marketing works when you are an affiliate of someone else's product, course, or software tool.Webster's online dictionary defines ‘Affiliate Marketing' as: “A marketing arrangement by which an online retailer pays a commission to an external website for traffic or sales generated from its referrals.”So rather than a company paying for ads to market their product or service, you, as an individual become the marketing ‘arm' and because you market their product, you are compensated. When I first started using affiliate marketing it felt ‘icky'. But once I realized that the company may not have made that sale without my recommendation, it became a lot more natural for me to utilize affiliate marketing for my benefit and as long as it is a tool, program, software, etc., that I use and personally believe in. I eventually realized it doesn't need to feel ‘icky' at all.Something thing to keep in mind about affiliate marketing is that it can really be a passive form of income. You don't need to create the product, you just need to believe in it and recommend it to those you feel would benefit from it, especially when it can fill a gap for your audience. Products or services that you know, like and trust, and you feel aligns with your audience; these are the ones you want to market.One of the biggest recommendations I have when it comes to affiliate marketing is that you always want to make sure you are aligned with the offer or product and that you're excited about sharing it and authentic when doing so. Another recommendation I have is to always disclose that you are using affiliate links. It is a good thing to be upfront about them, and in some cases/ locations you're legally required to do so.Tips for Getting OrganizedCreate a Google Sheet (easy!) for all of the affiliate programs you are already signed up for or a part ofMake columns for the name of the company, product/ service name, your login information, the unique URL that you're given that is specific to you, and any redirect you've created for this URL for your own website. (For example, I am an affiliate of Podia. My affiliate URL for Podia includes a long line of numbers and letters that is impossible to remember. So I created a redirect on my Squarespace website to make it easier for my audience to find what they are looking for, and easier for me to remember. So if you go to www.shediditherway.com/podia it will redirect you to my affiliate link.)There are so many ways to keep your affiliate links and information organized and this is just the tip of the iceberg. I also recommend creating a resource page on your website, keeping all of your recommended resources, with affiliate links, in one place on your website making it easy to find. Additionally you can create individual blog posts, highlighting each of them, digging deeper into why you recommend them. If you really want to exercise affiliate marketing and get into it, you need to make sure you're driving leads or eyeballs to those pages so that people are clicking on those links and purchasing as well. Another thing to consider is not to piggyback too many affiliate offers (unless that is your sole business) one after another. If you tend to recommend products or services back to back too frequently it becomes too much for your audience. I would rather recommend my top three programs that are really strategic and intentional, that I can focus my time and energy on when it comes to launching and marketing those programs rather than trying to do a bunch of different ones.I don't think there's a right or wrong way to go about this. This is just more of my personal experience with affiliate marketing. When it comes to affiliate programs that I've been part of it takes work. It's more than just throwing up a landing page and telling people about it once. You have to market the program or product. Until next time, keep doing it your way.  Insights:“So rather than a company paying for ads to market their product or service, you, as an individual become the marketing ‘arm' and because you market their product, you are compensated.”“Something thing to keep in mind about affiliate marketing is that it can really be a passive form of income.”“I would rather recommend my top three programs that are really strategic and intentional, that I can focus my time and energy on when it comes to launching and marketing those programs rather than trying to do a bunch of different ones.” Resources:Visit Pat Flynn's WebsiteCheck out one of Pat Flynn's Podcasts

 We had an interesting conversation in our Smart Cleaning Tribe recently that I wanted to share. I'll play the full clip in the podcast, but here's the scenario. Kate is a very successful cleaning business owner with 18 cleaning techs (cleaners). On this particular Monday, she had 2 call out. It put Kate into crisis mode. Can you relate? What would happen if 2 of your cleaners called out or quit on you? As I listened to Kate describe her employee scenario, I thought of the term negative employee margin. Let's relate this example to something easy to grasp. Money. You've got $5,000 coming in to your budget. Your expenses are $4,000. You have $1,000 left over. You have positive cash flow or margin. You feel peace. Most of you listening would say, "Ken, that's not me. I'm stretched." I would say that most of America would agree. So here is scenario #2. You've got $4,000 coming in to your budget and $5,000 in expenses! This creates stress, anxiety, fear, worry, doubt, anger, helplessness, etc. You have negative cash flow or margin. Can you feel the difference. Let's bring this back to Kate.Kate has 18 employees. I asked her how many she absolutely needs to complete the jobs on her schedule. She thought and answered 15. This is great. Kate has 3 extra employees to clean at any given time, so she has a positive employee margin. If 2 call out, she still has 16 to get the work done. Right?! Nope. Here's the part that she shared on the call as well. Kate has a vacation schedule that allows up to 2 on vacation at all times. They rotate as a team to give everyone an opportunity. This is also great for business. Right?! It is and it isn't. Kate has happy employees taking vacation, but she has a math problem.18 employees - 2 employees on vacation = 16 employees available at any given time. Add 2 call outs and Kate has 14 employees to do the work of 15! This is not positive margin anymore. Kate has negative margin.  This is why Kate feels the lack of peace. Do you relate. We talked on this call about Resource Management for her team. How can Kate always create a positive employee margin? We talked about flex cleaners, extra office staff, hiring more, cutting or changing the vacation policy, etc. Overall, it gave Kate a different take on how to create peace in her business.Would you like to join our cleaning family and be with amazing cleaning company owners like Kate?

Insider secrets or simply lesser known facts... We cover some topics that have come uop with clients recently.Superfoods are nonsense - The term ‘superfood' is unregulated and doesn't mean anything (note: same with the word ‘natural').- Well known superfoods = blueberries, goji berries- 100 calories worth of goji berries will give you 250% of your RDA vitamin c. 100 calories worth of broccoli will give you 429% of your RDA vitamin c. It'll also cost a fraction of the price.Supplements are white labelled - they all come from the same factory- A lot of supplements aren't FDA approved.- All foods and drugs affect different people in different ways. For example, in contraceptives, there are genetic factors with how many oestrogen receptors you have and how much water you retain. Cheaper foods- Dried beans/lentils - typically at least half the price than buying canned- Frozen or canned fruit and vegetables are often cheaper, particularly out of season but often fresher and with equal or more nutrients.Freezing food doesn't make it last forever. Fat content does.- You know the ziplock bags that have writing on them and a place for you to write the content and the date. Yeah, that's for a good reason.You don't need to cleanse.

JOIN THE WAITING LIST FOR STUDIO BLOOM: www.assembledancestudiocoaching.com/studiobloom Enrolments open - 29th OCTOBER 2021 6AM! You might know me as a podcaster, business coach and dance studio owner. But do you know how I got into the industry? Like so many of you reading, my awesome Mum took me along to my first class at 3 years old and I was hooked. Once I graduated from school I did what most people from school did, went to university! But it was whilst I was studying (enjoying it, but not loving it) that I got a call one day from my Mum and she mentioned how a cute little hall near our house would be for a dance studio. That's all it took, one little suggestion and I was obsessed. Fast forward to today and I have now been in the industry for over 15 years! I started my studio at 19 and I would attend conferences and events filled with other dance studio owners or business owners and I had so many people saying to me, “you're so young”, “too young” or “wow, so young!”. I get it, looking back and now seeing 19 year olds, I was so young! But at the time, it pushed me. To have a successful studio I knew I HAD to work hard, but 24/7?? That's not what I signed up for! Whenever I attended these conferences or events, the one MAJOR topic that kept coming up when I spoke with more experienced DSOs was “I don't have enough time with my family”... trying to find that work/life balance was a big issue for a lot of DSO's and at the time, being 19, I didn't think much of it. I wasn't planning to have a family of my own at that time so I wasn't worried it would be an issue for me. That being said I knew I wanted a family in the future and like most DSO's starting out, I did EVERYTHING myself so I did often think back to those comments from DSO's struggling to find balance and I wanted to make sure when that time came me and my dance studio were well prepared for me to not be doing everything myself! So I started researching, learning & tweaking, trying to figure out what is the best way to build my business processes and systems! I knew you could grow or build a sustainable business with the business steps in your head… you need to take action! So I knuckled down and got to organising, hoping one day, all that hard work would pay off. Everything came to a head when I had to take maternity leave early due to family reasons. I had to take a step back from the business and well… I am now in month 4 of maternity leave and everything is running smoothly. I jump in to pay bills and wages and I visit when I like, but aside from that my team run, grow & scale my business without me needing to be there! I know what DSOs need to get more time, be in control of their businesses and ultimately grow their student numbers. That is why I started coaching and that is why I created Studio Bloom. If you haven't heard already, I have created a comprehensive 12 week coaching program called Studio Bloom with a 5 step process to really grow your business and watch it flourish! Prepare: Avatars, Goal Setting, Product Ladders & Offers Plan: Pricing, Sales Messaging, Cashflow & Budgeting Nurture: Your Team & Systems Grow: Events, Traffic, Connections & Community Harvest: Automation & a Business Bloom Action Plan Stop being okay with being okay…. It's time to BLOOM! Without a strategic marketing and business plan, you can try a heap of different things and it might get you to your goals eventually, but if you want to take clear, actionable steps to grow (& save your sanity)...This program is for you! On completion of the course, you will walk away with a comprehensive Business Plan that will set you up for success for years to come! But you might ask, ‘how does a business plan lead to growth?

4 Insights for Goal Setting - Find Your North Star

The Accountability Coach: Business Acceleration|Productivity

The North Star (or Polaris), located directly above the North Celestial Pole, holds a lot of meaning. While it's not the brightest star, it's easy to locate. As an actual, noteworthy, and reliable point in the night sky, it's a significant symbol for guidance and achievement. Consider these examples. For centuries, ships relied on celestial navigation, guided by the North Star. In addition, the North Star offered hope and freedom for the enslaved during abolition. While you may not be crossing literal seas or lands, the idea of finding the North Star—your North Star—can highlight the value of goal setting. Having a goal, no matter the size, is crucial for reaching success in any venture. Imagine attending a meeting or announcing a new policy without any idea of your end goal. Not only would that be confusing, but it would also slow down productivity—and possibly hurt the collective morale and trust of your team members. Instead, setting your sights on a goal, or North Star, offers you and your team a clear vision. Once you understand the significance of goal setting, you'll be able to set realistic and ambitious goals with ease. Let's explore four insights to shine light on the value of goals—and lay a clear path toward your North Star of success. Insight #1: Start with Clarity in Mind First, clarity for your goals is vital. If you don't know where your business is going, it's impossible to achieve real progress. And without a clear roadmap and explanation, a goal could appear unnecessary or out of place to your employees. For example, you wouldn't choose a random number of sales as your goal without taking the time to research what makes the most sense for your firm's success. Nor would you ask your employees to waste time in unnecessary meetings or to duplicate work processes. If you're setting up a product launch, though, you'd ensure your item sells well by clarifying how to get those sales. Start your goal-setting process by clarifying the steps needed to get where you're going. Insight #2: Determine Direction and Details Next, having a sense of direction when goal setting is crucial. Imagine a child's birthday party with a piñata: blindfolded youngsters swing wildly in hopes of breaking open all the candy. While this is fun for a celebration, it's not the way to set goals! Making sure you're heading in the right direction with goal setting is key—instead of swinging wildly in hopes of getting it right. Knowing the what, why, and how of a goal points you in the right direction—and your sense of direction increases as you focus on the specifics. So, rather than setting vague goals that generalize your vision, you'll want to aim for specific figures, dates, and other details. Insight #3: Build in a Margin for Error Third, you need a margin for error. If you're a free thinker, having clear, specific goals laid out may feel like painting yourself into a corner. But look at it this way: no matter the goal, you'll likely run into some obstacles you weren't expecting. As a business owner, you're navigating economic, cultural, personal, and even perhaps political landscapes that could impact your business in ways you couldn't anticipate. This is why leaving a margin of error is so critical. When done expertly, goal setting leaves room for the unexpected. Instead of feeling blocked in, try to see that wiggle room as a pressure valve, similar to a “rainy day” fund. Allowing a margin for error means there's room for exploration and spontaneity. Insight #4: Increase Your Motivation Finally, motivation matters! Mindtools describes the power of setting goals as having “long-term vision and short-term motivation”. While this is the case for many goals, it's worth aspiring toward goals that build your motivation—from start to finish. Achieving your goals doesn't necessarily have to be hard, but it can be challenging for any number of reasons. If you don't have enough fire, passion, and desire to achieve a goal, the process is likely going to be a lot harder than it has to be. Committing to goals you don't really want serves little purpose. Stick to goals that you want bad enough that the decision to do what you need to do, in order to achieve it, is easy or easier. Create goals you desire with your heart, guts, and soul - those goals that inspire you to do the work required. These types of goals will get you excited and motivate you to achieving them. As you refine your goal setting, it will become easier and easier. Plus, you'll gain a sense of accomplishment with each step toward your goal. The stability that comes from quality goal setting allows your North Star to stay front and center. Bringing it All Together Remember, you're setting your business and team up for success by clarifying your goals, determining your direction and details, building in a margin for error, and increasing your motivation. By tuning in to what matters most, you are more likely to gain your team's trust and achieve your goals in the timeframe you have set. Remember that setting goals can come in different forms. There are seemingly endless ways to approach this process. Recognize the versatility of goal setting as part of what makes it so valuable. It's about as customizable as it can get! And use the insights I've just talked about as a reference tool as you develop your own. After all, there's more than one way to track your North Star.

4 Insights for Goal Setting - Find Your North Star

Goal Setting & Achievement Podcast: Business|Productivity

The North Star (or Polaris), located directly above the North Celestial Pole, holds a lot of meaning. While it's not the brightest star, it's easy to locate. As an actual, noteworthy, and reliable point in the night sky, it's a significant symbol for guidance and achievement. Consider these examples. For centuries, ships relied on celestial navigation, guided by the North Star. In addition, the North Star offered hope and freedom for the enslaved during abolition. While you may not be crossing literal seas or lands, the idea of finding the North Star—your North Star—can highlight the value of goal setting. Having a goal, no matter the size, is crucial for reaching success in any venture. Imagine attending a meeting or announcing a new policy without any idea of your end goal. Not only would that be confusing, but it would also slow down productivity—and possibly hurt the collective morale and trust of your team members. Instead, setting your sights on a goal, or North Star, offers you and your team a clear vision. Once you understand the significance of goal setting, you'll be able to set realistic and ambitious goals with ease. Let's explore four insights to shine light on the value of goals—and lay a clear path toward your North Star of success. Insight #1: Start with Clarity in Mind First, clarity for your goals is vital. If you don't know where your business is going, it's impossible to achieve real progress. And without a clear roadmap and explanation, a goal could appear unnecessary or out of place to your employees. For example, you wouldn't choose a random number of sales as your goal without taking the time to research what makes the most sense for your firm's success. Nor would you ask your employees to waste time in unnecessary meetings or to duplicate work processes. If you're setting up a product launch, though, you'd ensure your item sells well by clarifying how to get those sales. Start your goal-setting process by clarifying the steps needed to get where you're going. Insight #2: Determine Direction and Details Next, having a sense of direction when goal setting is crucial. Imagine a child's birthday party with a piñata: blindfolded youngsters swing wildly in hopes of breaking open all the candy. While this is fun for a celebration, it's not the way to set goals! Making sure you're heading in the right direction with goal setting is key—instead of swinging wildly in hopes of getting it right. Knowing the what, why, and how of a goal points you in the right direction—and your sense of direction increases as you focus on the specifics. So, rather than setting vague goals that generalize your vision, you'll want to aim for specific figures, dates, and other details. Insight #3: Build in a Margin for Error Third, you need a margin for error. If you're a free thinker, having clear, specific goals laid out may feel like painting yourself into a corner. But look at it this way: no matter the goal, you'll likely run into some obstacles you weren't expecting. As a business owner, you're navigating economic, cultural, personal, and even perhaps political landscapes that could impact your business in ways you couldn't anticipate. This is why leaving a margin of error is so critical. When done expertly, goal setting leaves room for the unexpected. Instead of feeling blocked in, try to see that wiggle room as a pressure valve, similar to a “rainy day” fund. Allowing a margin for error means there's room for exploration and spontaneity. Insight #4: Increase Your Motivation Finally, motivation matters! Mindtools describes the power of setting goals as having “long-term vision and short-term motivation”. While this is the case for many goals, it's worth aspiring toward goals that build your motivation—from start to finish. Achieving your goals doesn't necessarily have to be hard, but it can be challenging for any number of reasons. If you don't have enough fire, passion, and desire to achieve a goal, the process is likely going to be a lot harder than it has to be. Committing to goals you don't really want serves little purpose. Stick to goals that you want bad enough that the decision to do what you need to do, in order to achieve it, is easy or easier. Create goals you desire with your heart, guts, and soul - those goals that inspire you to do the work required. These types of goals will get you excited and motivate you to achieving them. As you refine your goal setting, it will become easier and easier. Plus, you'll gain a sense of accomplishment with each step toward your goal. The stability that comes from quality goal setting allows your North Star to stay front and center. Bringing it All Together Remember, you're setting your business and team up for success by clarifying your goals, determining your direction and details, building in a margin for error, and increasing your motivation. By tuning in to what matters most, you are more likely to gain your team's trust and achieve your goals in the timeframe you have set. Remember that setting goals can come in different forms. There are seemingly endless ways to approach this process. Recognize the versatility of goal setting as part of what makes it so valuable. It's about as customizable as it can get! And use the insights I've just talked about as a reference tool as you develop your own. After all, there's more than one way to track your North Star.

Would you like to know the one book that will absolutely change your life? Come on! Wouldn't you like to know how to cut through the thousands of self-help books out there to the one book that sums it all up? It's so much work to read all of those books. What if you could just listen to this podcast episode and hear my answer to the best book I ever read? Wouldn't that be awesome? It's the perfect microwave answer. You can take your uncooked mind and put it in the microwave for 2 minutes and presto... you have wealth mentality. This is appealing to so many people because we are getting to be a lazier and lazier society. What if I did have the best book ever to give to you? Do you realize that I have read over 500 books in my professional life over the past 20 years. And I haven't just read them. I've studied them. I've shared them. I've written in the margins. I've changed from one level to the next in my thinking. Here's what I'm saying. It's taken me 20 years and 500 books to tell you which was the best book I've ever read. There's a catch. If you read this book, would it change your life as much? I don't know, but my inclination is to say no."Okay, Ken. Stop with the ambiguity. Do you have a book to recommend or not?" Wow, you are so demanding. Okay, I'll give you a few that changed my life."The Monster at the End of this Book" by Jon Stone - Seriously! This is profound. Grover from Sesame Street fights so hard to keep the reader from turning the pages. My Pop-Pop read this to me every weekend from age 6 - 9 ish. I LOVED that book. We would joke and make faces, but the lesson is so clear. No matter what the obstacle, keep turning those pages in your life."The Choice" by Og Mandino, "The Traveler's Gift" by Andy Andrews, and "The Dream Giver" by Bruce Wilkinson - I've read these books over 15 times at least in my 20's, 30's and now 40's. They get better each time! They touch my heart and help me see WHY I do what I do, giving me the courage to keep traveling."The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People" by Stephen Covey - I just read this book and it changed my life. This is the book that inspired this episode. I want to be a Quadrant 2 person! I want to operate my life most effectively and I couldn't believe this book wasn't in the first 100 that I read!You could read these books and they could change your life or they could do nothing for you. So what is the best book for you to read to change your life? I believe that the answer is different for every person. Why? Some of you have read 1,000 books and have a dominant wealth and abundance mindset. Others maybe haven't read at all and still think at the level they always have. Napoleaon Hill had a quote, "Think and Grow Rich". In fact, this quote became a best-seller on teaching how to create wealth. Books help us to think differently. They cut us open and force us to make decisions to either change and grow or stay the same and wither. We are all at different stages of growing and developing. Books are static. This means that the information in the book will affect us differently at any given snapshot of our life. Have you ever read a book three times and get something different from it every time? I mentioned this about me already. The book hasn't changed, but we have so we get something different from it.Read the rest of this article at the Smart Cleaning School website

She Did It Her Way

Hello my beautiful friends, welcome back to another episode! This week I'm diving into a topic that I absolutely love and feel will be extremely helpful to so many listeners: how to handle objections. Sales is something that I think can be scary at times, but is absolutely necessary especially if you're a business owner. Learning how to sell with confidence is highly important, whether it's through customer conversations, sales calls, or learning how to sell in an online digital space using sales pages, landing pages, and through copy and content. But for the purposes of this episode, I want to focus on the piece of a sales conversation specifically if you are a coach, or if you have an offer that has some sort of sales call component to your sales process.When you get to the end of the sales call, or invite someone to sign up and actually pay you, this is the point when you typically meet resistance. Sometimes the objection is price. It could also be a timing issue, or that they simply don't have the bandwidth. There are a lot of objections and sometimes the default thinking is to think that each objection is different. One of the things that I have learned by leading training and experienced myself through sales conversations is that objections tend to be pretty universal. It's how we move through that objection and handle that objection in the moment, that will dictate the outcome of that sales call.What I have found most commonly happens with the sales conversation when an objection comes up is that we freeze up, get nervous or we start to ‘feature-dump', listing all of the features, bells, and whistles to our buyer. One of the top reasons that I have found is that they don't fully understand the value of the offer that you're presenting. They don't quite understand what your program or service does for them. Always make sure you touch on these:What is the benefit of your coaching program? Whether it's in a group, or whether it's one on one? What is the transformation that it will provide? What is the value that it offers?The second objection type is really a smokescreen over the actual objection/ problem and it is up to us to uncover and understand the true objection. For one reason or another, they aren't comfortable being fully honest with you about what is holding them back. The first thing I want you to learn to do instead is to take a moment and acknowledge. Empathize how they might feel and why they might feel the way that they feel. I recommend acknowledging how they feel, not by saying ‘I can understand', because that phrase can be very off putting in some situations.Instead try: “I see how you feel that way”. You'll experience a very different reaction because you are validating their feelings and letting them know that you're listening, rather than trying to sell them something. When we try to sell to them when they're not in a position of actually listening, we create more resistance.The second thing I want you to try when an objection comes up is to get curious. Get into discovery mode and start asking questions. Tell me a little bit more of what is the most important thing to you right now? What do you want to achieve in the next six to 12 months?Since timing is a problem now, what would make it the best time for you? What would need to be true in order for you to make it the best time, just so I understand?We want to clarify what is going on and when we can summarize back. This allows us to check our understanding of what they said to make sure that we are on the same page. When their resistance is lower and they aren't objecting, they're more likely to be open to listening. When their resistance is high, we don't want to keep pushing because our words will fall on deaf ears.As we empathize and get curious, we understand, restate, and summarize back to them what we heard. That lets us know that we're on the same page. Then we can proceed forward in how we want to respond. Maybe we bring up a few different points that we haven't discussed, or maybe we reiterate some of the benefits of the program and how it's going to help them overcome some of their objections. The last piece I want to offer you are the things that we can do to reduce the number of objections that we get. Think about your sales intake form. When someone signs up for a discovery or sales call with you, what are the questions that you are asking on that form? Do they provide you with significant information that will put you in a stronger position when you go into the sales meeting? Or are they vague questions such as ‘tell me about yourself'? Or , can you qualify people before hopping on a sales call? When we can qualify sooner at the top of the funnel, it makes it more efficient overall saving you time and energy.If you find that you are hearing the same objecting over and over - identify that and bring it up sooner during the call, rather than waiting until the end to address it. You can also optimize your FAQ's on your website. Put those objections in there along with your response. Lastly, figure out your mindset going into sales calls. Are you nervous, excited, steady/ grounded/ confident in your offer? Do you believe in your offer? If not, let's go back and look at your mindset. Remember, friends:Repetition builds confidence.We're not going to win them all, but if we can win one more out of 10, we can increase our conversion rate, thus increasing our revenue. Learning how to effectively sell with confidence takes time. It's not something we are born doing and we have to learn each step to get better and to keep moving that needle forward.Until next week, keep doing it your way! Insights:“One of the things that I have learned by leading training and experienced myself through sales conversations is that objections tend to be pretty universal.““As we empathize and get curious, we understand, restate, and summarize back to them what we heard. That lets us know that we're on the same page.”“Instead try: “I see how you feel that way”. You'll experience a very different reaction because you are validating their feelings and letting them know that you're listening, rather than trying to sell them something.”“Repetition builds confidence.”

 I talk about freedom on this podcast a lot. I talk about finances and building your company a lot. I also talk about family and keeping the main thing, the main thing. But I haven't talked about a topic that is as important if not more important than all of them. Let's talk about our health. In this podcast, I'm going to simply share a story of my own health journey from that of trusting doctors to taking ownership of my own health and being proactive. This has lead me to partner with doctors and health professionals in order to create the most healthy experience possible. Do you know why this is so important to me? I'm 44 years old with 5 kids between 4 and 16. I can still get down on the floor to play and out in the woods to hike and camp. I want to do that with my grandkids and great-grandkids. Therefore, I need to work hard to get healthy and wealthy.Resources - In this podcast, I mentioned "The Model Health Show" by Shawn Stevenson. Check it out. There are so many hacks you can do to improve your health from anti-inflammatory diets, to cutting wifi while to sleep, supplements, walking every day, and so on. I highly recommend that you find a medical partner that you can work with to achieve your goal.

Why is it that so often we know what we SHOULD do but can't actually DO it?1. Values - is the goal truly one of your values?2. Do you value yourself enough? An example of this might be paying for therapy. When someone is feeling at their absolute worst, it's the time they most need someone to talk to and yet is the time they are least likely to want to invest in themselves.3. Have you identified how hard you're willing to work OR how long you're willing to wait to achieve the goal?4. How are you setting up your environment?5. How are you altering your MOs?6.

 I've built my cleaning company for 16 years solo and have operated under my own set of personal core values. I've communicated them in my marketing system and they have earned me better, higher paying clients that stay with me a long time. However, I've never had to document them or communicate them to a team. My coach, Josh Melton, has been driving this point home recently. He recommended that I re-read the book, "Traction" by Gino Wickman and complete the EOS® VisionTraction Organizer or the VTO. This process is so helpful because it forces me to extract my most inner and core beliefs about me and my company and share them in my vision. I have never done this before. It was scary at first. But now, it energizes me and that's a true tell if my foundation is right. I should be able to communicate my mission, vision, and values. Before I dive in, let me give thanks where thanks is due. I've already mentioned Josh. Josh, if you're listening... thank you! I want to also thank Kevin Smith of Grace Home Cleaning in Omaha, NE. Check out my interview with Kevin called, "It's Grace for a Reason". Kevin shares his mission and vision in this interview and it truly inspired me. I shared the exact one, just didn't know how to communicate it. Thank you Kevin for being so real and transparent about your relationship with God and He leads your company. Let's return to a previous episode, "We All Need a Coach". I read a portion of scripture from the Book of Matthew called "The Parable of the Talents". I'll paraphrase. The master gives 5 talents to one servant, 2 to another, and 1 to the other. One talent or a talent of silver from biblical times was worth around 6,000 denarii and a denarii was referenced in the bible as a day's wages. Therefore, a single talent could be worth as much as 6,000 days of labor. If the average worker works 22 days per month, it would take him 22 years to earn a talent. I've also seen commentary where a talent was approximately a year's salary at that time. Whatever the answer, a talent is a significant amount of money. The one given 5 talents trades and accumulates 5 more. He is highly commended by the master as a good and faithful servant or steward. The one given 2 did likewise and accumulated 2 more. The master was happy again. The third servant hid his 1 talent in the ground out of fear and gave it back to his master. The master was furious and delivered him to extreme punishment and he gave his talent to the one with 10. This parable really speaks to me. I don't relate to the 3rd servant. I desire to be like the 5 talent servant. He believed that the Master owned it all and he wanted to do his best to multiply His talents. This is called Stewardship. Just like my friend Kevin and the 2 and 5 talent servants, I believe that God owns it all. I believe that He owns my cleaning business. My job as a steward is manage it well for Him. The question I asked myself was this. "Ken, how well do you want to manage it?" The answer was quick and short. I want to manage it like the first servant. He started with 5 of God's talents and ended with 11! That's amazing! God still owns the 11, but the servant was just elevated big time. This became my new life and business mission statement.Read the rest of this article at the Smart Cleaning School website
