What Is The Secret To Success?

Are you ready to learn the secret to success?

I have seen people searching high and low for the secret to success.

They buy tons of courses and coaching all in an effort to discover the secret to success.

Are you ready?

The secret to success is…

There is no secret.

Really.

There is no secret.

You may be thinking, “Well, there’s no secret to success but I have to be super talented. I have to have an innate ability. I have to have some magical superpowers. I have to be born with a certain skill or a certain persona to be successful.”

Nothing could be further from the truth.

You are good enough to be successful. You can do whatever it is that you put your mind to.

You may need to acquire a skill set and learn new things in order to achieve your goals, but rest assured that you really can do whatever it is that you put your mind to.

So go and decide what you want to do. Figure out what skills are needed. Then hire a coach or mentor and start taking action!

And that’s the real secret to success!

Cool Tool Alert: GoToMeeting and GoToWebinar

I have been using this for years and years.

It’s my web-conferencing and webinar software all-in-one.

It is GoToMeeting and GoToWebinar (they are owned by the same company).

There are many imitators and other software options out there.

GoToMeeting and GoToWebinar have never failed me.

First, about GoToMeeting:

If you are doing one-on-one coaching coaching calls, it is so, so helpful. You can easily record your calls (which is a huge value to your clients). It also allows you to share your screen or do video chat.

Also, you can allow everyone to talk at the same time if you’d like.

Next, GoToWebinar:

It is hands-down the absolute best webinar software out there. They have different packages depending on how may attendees you expect at your webinar. They also offer a 30 day free trial.

Go here to try it out. (Not an affiliate link.)

It does cost more than some others, but you really do get what you pay for. You need to especially keep this in mind if you are making sales on your webinars. You need to know that the tool is going to work!

When you are looking for a tool as important as meeting and webinar software, you need to make sure that you are getting the very best.

Are Your Friends Ruining Your Business?

The answer may surprise you.

The answer is “yes!” They may be ruining your business.

It takes a certain kind of person to understand that achieving big goals is possible. They have to have a certain mindset.

More than likely, your friends are not supportive, cast doubts on what you are doing or make you feel guilty for not spending time with them because you are busy building your business.

One mentor of mine told me that your network is your net worth.

I thought, “Really?”

I started looking at my network and realized that wasn’t the net worth that I wanted to have!

So I started joining masterminds, going to industry events and hiring coaches and consultants.

Before I knew it, was looking around and realized that my closest friends and mentors were all 7 and 8 figure earners.

Not surprisingly, our income was skyrocketing because we were hanging around people who were bringing us up.

Our conversations around the dinner table were not “Are you really still doing that business thing?”

Instead they were, “How big of an impact are you going to make this year? Do you want to be a New York Times Bestselling author? I think you can do it. Let me give you some contacts to help you.”

Those kinds of relationships are invaluable.

Remember that being an entrepreneur is not a solo sport.

The bottom line is that you need to surround yourself with people that will help you play at a higher level.

Do I Really Need To Build A Personal Brand?

Have you heard a lot of talk about building your personal brand but you’re not quite sure if that’s something that you need to be spending your time and money on?

Today I want to talk about why you should consider building your personal brand.

I happen to have a lot of experience in this field. I am a personal branding expert.

The reason I got into personal branding was because, quite honestly, I lost my entire business because I wasn’t building my own brand.

This is super important if you are in direct sales, in affiliate marketing or selling anyone else’s stuff. Why? Because when you are selling someone else’s stuff you are building their brand.

But let’s face it. Times change. You change.

You may not want to continue to promote that particular brand. When that happens, you have to start over from scratch!

That ends up costing you big in the long run.

When you build your own, personal brand, it can change with you as you morph and grow.

For example, when I got started after losing my first business (because I built their brand), I decided that I wanted to build my brand around blogging.

It wasn’t very long after that that I realized that I didn’t really like talking about blogging. It wasn’t who I was.

That is when I started making a shift to helping people define, monetize and build their authentic brands online.

It was because I had a personal brand that I could make that shift!

Keep in mind that your brand follows you everywhere! If you do choose to build a personal brand, be very aware of that. Remember, you never get a second chance to make a first impression!

How To Get Your Message Out In A Big Way

Do you have an important message that you want to share with the world? One that can change thousands and thousands of lives?

Today I want to talk to you about how you can get your message out in a big way.

A lot of my clients come to me and they are really awesome at networking locally.
And that’s totally great!

But… will that really help you get your message out in a BIG way?

Probably not.

You need to harness the power of the internet.

I want you to think about your perfect clients and customers (the people that you want to serve). Where are they spending their time?

Whatever the answer is, that is the communication channel that you want to master.

For example, if your perfect clients are always on facebook, you better be using facebook!

Notice that I didn’t say to master all the social media sites. Pick the one where your clients and customers are and master that. Once you do, you can move on to other places to continue getting your message out in a big way.
