How to make the digital connection personal

By |2017-12-05T21:53:41+00:00September 16th, 2013|Uncategorized|

Whether it's a digital connection or a real connection, every day billions of people connect for the first time. In the business world, making connections is important and will directly shape our career path and successes. Think about a world where Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak never met! The current blog post you are reading may not have even existed considering I'm using a Mac to write it on. What if the founding fathers of the United States of America never connected with each other? What would the world be like? How do you think these history makers first connected? The interesting thing is that in today's world, more and more of these first time connections are happening through social media or other digital forms. This occurrence is growing at a rapid pace with the adoption of smartphones everywhere which is raising some interesting questions and concerns about how successful the use of technology really is for creating real and personal connections. There are so many people who will accept anyone that tries to connect with them on a social network, without even a thought towards establishing a relationship. Don’t get me wrong, if you don’t accept their request, then you will never even have the opportunity to get to know the person. But it comes down to your real intentions and why you are trying to connect with them in the first place. Are you more interested in building your numbers on social media or actually building a connection that matters? More to the point, does "friending" someone on Facebook or gaining another follower on twitter actually constitute a first time connection? I say this because I believe heavily in the potential of digital [...]

5 Ways To Leave A Lasting Impressions

By |2017-12-05T21:53:41+00:00August 15th, 2013|Uncategorized|

5 Ways To Leave A Lasting Impressions Most first impressions are made within the first 15 seconds of meeting someone. This is interesting to me considering that most first time meetings begin with pleasantries and small talk. Imagine meeting a nobel prize winner for the first time without being introduced. To speak with a nobel prize winner would leave a lasting impression, but I doubt they would tell you about that in the first 15 seconds of talking to them. It could be a while into the conversation before they bring it up or, if they are humble, it may not be mentioned at all. My point is simple, the first impression is important but a lasting impression should be the goal. So how do you make a lasting impression?   The Greeting  It’s simple, if you want to leave a lasting impression, you definitely want to start with an amazing first impression. Now, some people would say to give the person you are meeting a firm hand shake and then look the person right in the eye and say: "hello, my name is…" This is a great place to start, but I think there's more to it than that. For instance, What was the person doing before you walked up? What kind of mood did the person seem to be in? What kind of environment are you meeting the person in? I believe these questions are important because I don’t think there can be a standard greeting that will make a great first impression with every single person that you meet. As a matter of fact, in some cultures it’s completely inappropriate to shake someones hand or even look them in the eyes. Communication [...]

It Works with One Card™

By |2017-12-05T21:53:41+00:00August 8th, 2013|Uncategorized|

How many times do you meet people that act interested in learning about It Works and then nothing comes of it? The question is, how do you connect with potential customers? This might seem like an obvious question, but a connection is not complete unless your able to communicate. Now you might be thinking, “I do connect with individuals in a conversation on a more personal level”. This is how it should be, because no one cares how much you know till they know how much you care. The type of connection that I’m describing is sharing your contact information in a way that won’t be lost so you can continue the conversation. How many times have you given someone your postcard with your information on it and there was no response back? We both know It’s not that they weren’t interested or even that the postcard was not effective, but it was just easily lost and/or thrown away. Put yourself in their position, in your busy life what would you have done with a postcard from someone you had never met? Imagine if you could instantly share your contact information right to their phone...which then could be instantly saved. Not too mention you could add all of the information from your brochure. Lets not stop there, what about a welcome video, a full bio and all the social networks you utilize to grow your business? How about one step further with having testimonial videos or before and after pictures right on a simple, easy to share, digital business card?   Well that is possible! One Card™ is your digital business card that works on all smartphones, tablets and computer with no app required. With It Works [...]

What Is Your Why, Business Owners?

By |2017-12-05T21:53:41+00:00August 3rd, 2013|Uncategorized|

What is your why? Some of you may have heard this question before and you know what your “why” is, others of you may not even know what I mean when I ask this. The word "why" has had a powerful effect on my life; from helping me to make decisions, to causing conflicts in my life that truly made me think about my choices. In the beginning stages of my life the word "why" landed me in timeout, earned me many spankings and began to shape a young mind ready to learn. As a kid I questioned everything, from why I needed to clean my room, to why am I even here? I was never one of those kids that just believed what someone told me to, and it was through asking the question why that I truly came to learn what I believed. It was also through asking "why?" that I learned the power of common sense and the purpose behind why I do what I do. When I ask the question "what is your why?" what do you think about? Maybe something like: Why do I do what I do? Why am I here on this planet? Why did I create my company? Why do I wake up in the morning? My point from the beginning was tied to these kind of questions because I so strongly feel it is important to know why you are doing something. If you don’t have a strong reason WHY you are doing something, then why would keep on doing it?  It is really easy to quit something when you don't know why you are doing it. This was a long intro to get to this simple thought: as a business owner your "why" [...]
