Thought for the Week: Good Will

I saw this quote and thought it very appropriate for the attitude I talk about all the time for the networking professional.  
"A man's feelings of good-will towards others, is the strongest MAGNET for drawing good-will towards himself."

Thought for the Week: Tool

In the process of building and sustaining your business you have to use marketing tools to reach prospects and clients  One tool for many is Networking. For many it is the most important and definitly the most personal tool in their toolbox.  As with all your tools it is necessary to keep them in excellent working order. With Networking that means keeping yourself up to date with the many opportunities available, practice with your presentation, creating a plan of what you want to accomplish at each event, time scheduled for follow up, 1 on 1's, and the time slotted for the ones you have chosen to attend on a regular basis. Then to put the razor edge on this important tool, make sure to have a positive attitude.

Thought For The Week: Start

Every day we have to start our day. How do you start yours?

According to Laura Vanderkam, author of "What The Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast", her research suggested that “successful people devoted significant portions of their time in the morning that was most important, or loved to do.”

If you want to become a more productive morning person, Vanderkam suggests: “making the to do list the day before; getting good sleep; exercising; practicing a morning ritual, including meditation [or prayer]; eating a proper breakfast; avoiding morning meetings […]; tackling the most important work first; and visualizing your ideal day.”

Thought For The Week: Who Are You?

A simple question not so simply answered. Have you ever stopped to really ask that question to yourself. I mean if you're not sure who you are how can your customers, team members, associates, etc, know you? Which you are you portraying today? Many try to be what they "think" we want them to be and act accordingly. So, I have a suggestion. Just be yourself, your true self. No, most likely not everyone will actually like you. That is OK, because the ones that do won't be surprised when someone else shows up different from the person they "thought" they knew.

Thought For The Week: Who & Why

When giving your elevator pitch, keep these two things in mind. Let people know WHO you are and WHY you do what you do. Let them feel your passion to help, the passion you have for your product, with it's benefits to the professionals listening and their friends and family. The feelings you create are so much more powerful than the statistics you can rattle off. Please, remember you have 30 seconds or less to present a professional message.

Thought for the Week: Subconscious

For many years I have listened to the CD by Tony Robbins / Hour of Power while exercising. And now, I repeat the phrases learned & created at random during the day but ALWAYS in the morning. There are two I particularly like:

    1. Every day in every way "I AM" (keep repeating)
  • kinder & kinder
  • healthier & healthier
  • stronger & stronger
  • smarter & smarter
    2. All I need is within me now (repeat All)
  • the LOVE I need is within me now
  • the tenacity I need is within me now
  • the generosity I need is within me now

Have fun & make up your own words, feelings, challenges, goals, etc. When you say them  - 


Train your brain to think these thoughts automatically. To become part of your subconscious and therefore part of -



The Business Club of Overland Park

OK - this week is the 5th week of the month & that makes it slow at the club without our 1st & 3rd or 2nd & 4th week meeting schedule, so stop by & say hello! Check out the club and have a cup of coffee or tea. Maybe even snack on a pastry. Let me know when you plan on stopping by and I'll meet you there if my schedule permits. Have a great week. (I will be gone on Friday.)

Thought for the Week: Desire

Successful and unsuccessful people are not very different with their abilities. Their variance is within their desire to reach their potential.

Thought for the Week: Focus

Andrew Carnegie, The Empire of Business"And here is the prime condition of success, the great secret: concentrate your energy, thought and capital exclusively upon the business in which you are engaged. Having begun on one line, resolve to fight it out on that line, to lead in it; adopt every improvement, have the best machinery, and know the most about it."

— Andrew Carnegie, "The Empire of Business"

Thought for the Week: Goals

You're leaving an event you just attended with the goal to build your business by meeting some new contacts. Was it successful? You got a pocket full of business cards. Was that really your overall goal? Now what? Was one or two of those cards from people you set follow up one on one appointments, or were any of them possible ideal clients, or maybe someone who has a service YOU might need? It's hard to judge without specific attainable goals set before you attended the event.

That way you KNOW you did what you wanted to do. So, next time - - Set some goals - - I am going to meet X number of new contacts,  - - I am going to set X number of one on one appointmemts, - - I am going to introduce a new contact to one of my contacts, etc. Next time give it a try, go to the event on purpose, with a plan and some preset goals. You just might discover that yes, YES, it was a success because you accomplished ALL of your goals.
