How Just ONE Word Can Make Such A Difference

I recently switched out one word for a new word and it has made such a difference in my life and work!

In fact, I have been teaching it also to my large team of entrepreneurs.

You are probably curious as to what the word is so here it goes.

The word is ‘INVESTMENT’ verses for example ‘EXPENSE’ or ‘LOSING TIME’.

Words used like this:

If I purchase or take supplements I am investing in my health.

If I pay for a course, I am investing in myself and my business.

If I take time to do my daily yoga, I am investing time in my health and in my peace of mind.

If I take time to read an educational book I am investing in my knowledge base and again in me!

If I eat nutrient dense food, I am investing in my health and vitality.

If I spend money on tools for my business, they are not expenses to me, they are an investment in my overall profitability and business growth.

When I speak positively, I am investing in my mental wellness.

Okay I think you get the idea. So rather than seeing things as ‘expenses’ when you invest time, money, or attention to something, see them as the investments they are.

Investing in something is a form of leverage also!

Even saying the word Investment instead of ‘An Expense’ changes everything for me. An investment makes me feel empowered and fills me up. The word expense makes me feeling as though I am losing something.

What a difference!

Enough Hours & Too Many Excuses

Quote: A day has enough hours. You just have too many excuses.

This quote reminds me that we all have the same amount of time in a day. It is all how we use it. 🙂

Are you making time for the things that really matter in your life and work?

And another thought when it comes to our work especially as entrepreneurs…. “You can make excuses or you can make money “. 🙂

I hope that you are. Have a great day everyone!

Money Comes Easy

Are you one of those people that believe making money has to come from hard work? If so, you might want to rethink that.

Sure we need to put in effort but the belief that making money or amassing wealth is hard is more crippling than the actual effort involved!

Here is a great quote from Esther Hicks to open our minds up to leveraging thoughts of ease around making money and having more abundance in our lives.

“If you believe that you must work hard in order to deserve the money that comes to you, then money cannot come to you unless you do work hard. Financial success, or any other kind of success, does not require hard work. It does require alignment of thought. You simply cannot offer negative thought about things that you desire and then make up for it with action or hard work. When you learn to direct your own thoughts, you will discover the true leverage of Energy alignment.”

2 Hacks To The Credit Card Game

The Game

First and foremost think of using credit cards like a game because it is a game. The credit card company’s ideal customer is one who racks up their credit card with no wiggle room left. And then the credit card company or bank makes a lot of money off of the person who has maxed out their card or who never pays down their balance. Add on whopping interest fees and various surcharges and the game is in full swing!

Now the person becomes the pawn in the game of kings and never seems to be able to make a dent in their outstanding balance. You know that awful feeling of being buried and you can’t get out? 🙂

In the above case you are losing the game so if you want to win the game this is what you need to do.

  1. Enter into the game knowing that it is a game and that you want to win. 🙂 A credit card can be a good servant if used wisely and a bad master when not used wisely. To start playing the game to win you want to research and find the best card with the best perks that are to your liking and will give you the most benefit.
  2. Go into the game knowing that you are only in it for 2 reasons A) You want to master a stellar credit rating to set you up for future borrowing if and when you need it to acquire things like a house or business and B) To take advantage of the perks and to NOT pay any interest but to enJOY the perks and maximize!

So the bottom line is that you must pay your card off in full every month! Do this as a strategy to win. Even if you get a credit card with a small credit limit like $1000 or $500… purposely get one for this reason and put charges on it and pay it off every month. This will help to land you a great credit rating and get you knowing how to play the game to win.

I hope that you found this helpful and I will be writing again in the future with more tips around credit cards and finance.

Have a great day everyone!

Most Engaging Conent

What Content Gets The Most Engaging Traffic?

A picture of me when I was two years old in 1968

Here is a picture of me next to the lake where I grew up in a little tiny town in Northwestern Ontario called Kashabowie.

I posted this picture on Facebook the other day and had well over 100 Likes and Comments.

This morning while scrolling through Facebook I saw a business post in a group asking what type of content gets them the most engagement? People were answering with things like ‘My Facebook Lives’, ‘My cute cat pictures’, etc. And I responded with this: Authentically sharing parts of my life and living…. like recently the picture of me when I was 2

And this is true my friends! I have been a social media person for many years now and I coach on social media and what I have found to be the best content for engagement is the stuff that is the real deal. That is what inspires people.

People want to get to know the real person and the person or people behind the brand.

Yesterday in the blogging class that I am teaching we came up with a term for this. We called it “Human Centered”.

When someone sends me a friend request and they are say a Business Coach or a Brand and I look at their wall or content and all I see is ‘business stuff’ and no personalization, it is rare that I even accept their connection request. I want to engage with people and to be inspired by them and their life as well as maybe doing business with them in the future.

To me this lifetime is about connecting with each other, inspiring each other and serving each other so that has to be a part of engaging content.

And on the note of INSPIRATION, all content should inspire or make someone feel better in some way. Whether it is bringing a smile to their face or offering a solution to their problem, it should make the feel better.

I hope that you are inspired by this blog today and that you see content in a new way.

How Do You Look At Expenses?

I was over on one of my up and coming favorite platform, Alignable, and I love their Advice Section. It is a place where you can ask for or offer advice and today I answered a question about expenses.

The question was: How regularly do you evaluate your expenses? And will you be reviewing them now that it is a New Year and new quarter, etc. And will you be watching your finances?

Here was my answer:

I am a little different. My solution to just about every situation is to “make more money”. So rather than spending a lot of time focusing on where I can cut things out or on what I can change out, I focus on ways to add to my DIS (Diversified Income Streams). 

I love to leverage and I leverage my time, my money, and my resources. I do not mind AT ALL paying for tools, education, courses, systems etc. to make my life and work easier. I think that is smart and I invest in myself often. And of course, I will let go of whatever is not working for me or not bringing me JOY in my work and my life.

However, the bulk of my energy goes into being proactive and full speed ahead. 

Here is an example.

I love to shop at Winners (The USA Version of TJ Maxx) and they always give me a survey with my receipt with a chance to fill it out to win a prize. I learned quickly that the time it takes me to fill out a survey could be making me money instead so I stopped filling those out.

 I see my time as an asset or a liability and that to me is wasting my time and not an asset. Same thing fighting for a $20 or $30 error or charge…. sometimes way too much time and energy and not worth it in the big picture.

When one stops focusing on ‘the lack of money’ in their decisions that is when the big things that are magical can truly happen! 🙂

As to watching my finances,  I am going to watch them GROW because that is what I focus on.. abundance and helping others to add more abundance into their lives! 🙂 And I quite like that 🙂

So There You Have It!

That was my answer and is always the way I see things. I remember reading a post on Facebook one time about a person sharing her frustration about not having any more corners to cut in their household budget and they didn’t know what to do to make it work even after credit counselling and all I could think was “have you looked for ways to add in more income?” Was that even put on the table?

Anyhow, I hope that you too learn to focus on diversifying your income and adding in more resources when you need them. It sure helps to take the pressure off. 🙂 And if you need a way, talk to me. I am full of ideas and I am sure one will work for YOU!

Have a great day everyone!

On Branding

Branding is not something you do once. Branding is an ongoing process in your business and also in regard to who you are. Regardless of the size of your business or if you are personally branding yourself as a public figure or not, you are always branding yourself at the same time that you brand your business.

As part of your marketing and branding strategy, every week you could be writing, creating, posting, and sharing content. From blog posts to tweets, from reports and downloads to email messages, you’re communicating with your audience, potential customers, and current customers. You’re sharing a message. And you are branding!

If that message is consistent, then people start to develop trust and expectations. They learn who you are and what you stand for. If your message is inconsistent, then your audience is left confused and unsure of who you are and where you stand. This confusion generally leads to them leaving your fold, or never entering it in the first place.

If you want to attract customers and keep them, your message has to be consistent from message to message and across your content channels. In short, you have to have a brand and that brand has to be communicated clearly and effectively in every piece of content that you share.

A strong and consistent brand provides you with:

  • A clear message
  • Credibility
  • Clearly, delivers the message 
  • A prospect that is emotionally connected to you, your products, or services.
  • A motivated buyer
  • Loyalty
  • Authenticity
  • Underlying Integrity

One of my favorite pieces to branding is to Inspire and to offer Inspiration. People making buying decision based on how they ‘feel’ or how a product or service might make them ‘feel’. Therefore, in your branding make sure that you are inspiring people! Make them feel good! If you keep that at the heart and soul of your branding you will excel at branding!

And most of all have FUN with it! 🙂

I hope that you found this helpful and have an AMAZING day!

Feedback On My Blogging 101 Course

My Blogging Course Feedback

I just finished my second week with a group of students who are taking my Blogging 101 Course where I take them from the idea of “I might want to blog” to becoming a Blogger with Confidence!

I just had to share some of the feedback I got today about the course so far!

This course so far has taken the mystery out of blogging for me. It has already taken me over the hump and has been pivotal. It has been the key for me to becoming confident about starting a blog!

I was afraid of blogging but Maggie has simplified it and makes it possible for anyone to do.

I am a factual and hands on person and I loved how Maggie had us write some sample blog posts and then critiqued them with some suggestions that really opened my mind up to even more possibilities.

***************************

I will be starting another Blogging 101 Course soon based on interest and time of day. If you would like to get info about the course let me know.

In the meantime have a GREAT day!
