πŸ™ Please, please, please!

🚫 Stop sending a sales pitch right after connecting.

I understand that social media networks are great sales tools, but it’s not the right way to do it.

Instead:

🌱 Cultivate relationships.
πŸ’¬ Engage with content.
πŸ’‘ Provide Value.

THEN talk about your services.

πŸ‘‡πŸ» Tell me about the worst LinkedIn sales pitch you’ve received.

My first business was an absolute failure...

❌ My first business was an absolute failure... 🚫

I grew up in a large family. My Dad, a small business owner and entrepreneur, taught me to work hard and dream big. I remember some of my favorite moments with him were talking about business or coming up with new business ideas.

⚑️ When I was 16, I started a business with a goal to sell and install wind turbines and solar panels. I contacted a manufacturer, and even became an official reseller.

😩 I didn’t sell one wind turbine or solar panel.

πŸ™ŒπŸ» That said, I learned valuable skills. I built a website for my little business. Admittedly, it wasn't a great website, but that was the start to the path that I'm still on today.

πŸ€” Was it really a failure? I guess it depends on how you define success and failure. What metrics do you use to measure them?

Tell me about some of your "failures"! πŸ‘‡πŸ»

Why a Podcast is a Powerful Marketing Tool

I can't say it loud enough!

Start a podcast!

Even if you don't have very many listeners, a podcast is an incredibly powerful tool.

1. It will open doors to conversations and connections.
2. It will give you a never-ending stream of content that you can repurpose as:
- Blog posts
- Social media posts (ahem, πŸ‘‡πŸ» comes from my podcast)
3. It's an incredible learning opportunity. I've learned so much from my guests.
4. It's an incredible way for potential customers to get to know, like, and trust you.

I'll say it again! Start a podcast!

If you're interested, I'd be happy to jump on a FREE call to chat about your podcast idea.

Don’t get so focused on success that you don’t see it right in front of you!

🚫 Don’t get so focused on success that you don’t see it right in front of you! 😳

I’m always wanting more. In part, that’s what makes me an entrepreneur. I have a burning desire to succeed, and work my tail off to do so.

That said, sometimes I’m so focused on the hustle and pursuit of success that I fail to celebrate and recognize the small wins.

πŸ™ Take time to be grateful.

πŸ“ˆ Think about where you were a year or even five years ago.

πŸŽ‰ Celebrate the small wins.

Take care! :)
