How the new entrepreneur is like your local church



“You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want.” ~ Zig Ziglar

Happy Monday!

Do unto others. 
That's the golden rule. 

That's the rule we wake up to and live by. 
Well... sometimes it really only comes to us when we see others not living up to that standard.  But that's the rule.

That's our culture. 

The church, whatever faith you live in, it's there working, helping, giving. 

A new culture is forming. 
The giving entrepreneur.  
The giving by way of sending money abroad and giving opportunity.
The giving by employing locals, allowing them to have a new sense of freedom. And opportunity. 
The giving by teaching and serving. 

That's our new culture.  Perhaps your business, you and your work inherently is giving.  Perhaps you give in additional manners.  
Think on it.  How is your business giving? Serving?



LEAD. Lovelies.  Lead.

--> You are leading ladies.  You ARE doing a great job!  This is the conversation we have over and over and over and over again.  You are making change.  You are doing good things.  Maybe it's not at the speed you desire, hey - being a leader and a business owner is not easy.  Join us on a 5 Day Journey to not only understand that you are doing a great job but how to FEEL great too!  Click the link and we will automatically set you up.   Starting Oct 30th we will start the journey together!  

--> "The very idea of knowledge itself is in danger."  As the world turns to pretty pictures, Wikipedia and those updating it is waning.  Entertainment is taking over the need for knowledge.   Just an FYI.


--> Sales.  That determines if you are in business or not, whether or not you make sales, if you have the sales or not.  I heard you say learning this skill was important to you.  That's what you told me in the survey we did.  I am AWESOME at getting a meeting.  AWESOME.  I am awesome at getting people EXCITED.  (Hellooo!)  And I am still learning on the actually closing part.  I am reading, reading, reading and talking with some awesome experts out there.  I decided to share what I know and share what I am learning as I go.  

It starts with the meeting.  Getting in front of the people you want to work with.  That's how I get celebrity clients that have NO idea who I am.  That's how I get in front of Founders of giant organizations, beloved organizations.  First step is getting the meeting. 

And that means - you have to go where they are and give them what they want.  
That's the first step.  Think on it.  
More to come. 

--> 10 Easy, Weird, Proven-Effective, In-the-Moment, On-Demand Productivity Mindtricks I love a good hack especially if it's to improve my own results.  Here are the cliff notes version: Compete with yourself, ally with yourself, don't check it complete right after you finish a task (just keep going), save the good stuff & be ruthless with the rest, forget saying "I should have", accept limitations, start super small (hey! one client means you're in business!), do the silly thing then quit, procrastinate productively, and use music to help you out!



--> I just started this app where it will give me three outfit options for the day based on our weather forecast.  OMG.  Love it.  

Quick side note from Ashleigh.  Here are my most favorite tools ever.

  • For audio motivation - Relentless by Tim Grover. I listen to him as I was in the mornings.  My walk always becomes a power walk after listening. 
  • To focus during the day I love to focus@will.  They say music helps you focus and for me it surely does.  I blare the classical music.  I am not sure how many people my age choose that over techno but either way I love it.
  • Rosemarie Groner (from the Busy Budgeter) is a friend and I just LOVE how much she gives everything away.  She tells you and anyone she can her detailed way to making money!  Start with her Pinterest Strategy Guide that is worth every penny.  Not. going. to. lie
