Happy Mother’s Day To All The Mothers Who Have The Toughest Job in The World!

Happy Mother’s Day

Happy-Mothers-day-From-Brandon-Krieger

Waking up this morning I have an amazing feeling of gratitude for all the Mother’s in my life that have raised me and help me get to where I am today. I came from a very unique up bringing when I grew up because I was raised by my Grandmother from the age of 2 because my Mom was had health challenges and needed help raising me. Plus I am sure I was a handful at the time and still am today 🙂

My Mom and Grandmother both taught me so much which I value today, my hard work ethic, stubbornness to never give up in what I believe in, to have compassion to all no matter what’s their situation, problems, race…etc to always welcome them in and do your best to help. I am sure there is so much more.

Growing up I’m sure I was short sighted and argued against their wisdom every step of the way as I went through the personal growth stages of being dependant and independent.  Now being at the stage of intra-dependant I can understand and appreciate what they have to still teach me even to this day.

They were amazing at being mothers, I never got into any real trouble and was always respectful to the people I met.

It was funny this morning I was looking up to see what the definition of “Mother” was and found medical related definitions, religious views but didn’t find what I feel is the true definition of Mothers which is:

“A mother is a selfless guide, healer, mentor who has chosen to give her life and take on the responsibility through thick and thin to do their best they can to teach their child and/or children how to live in this world. They understand it can be a thankless journey, with long hours, sleepless nights, they understand the role and do it day in and day out with no regret”

That is my definition of a “Mother”

Take the time today to Thank the Mothers in your life.

What Annoys Me About Social Media Marketing

What Annoys Me About Social Media Marketing

what annoys me about Social-media-marketing

This morning I was working away creating a follow up from a meeting I had yesterday with some major players in the Ontario Real Estate industry. When all of a sudden I receive this message above (click image to enlarge).

Richard Williams sent me a link which I didn’t show in the image because I don’t want to promote it.  I asked him what is the link and good morning in my first comment, then you can read from there what I said, which you can see I lose him because it’s not about making a connecting it’s really about hit it and quit it pitching.

What is truly annoying is this guy has some amazing experts he is following Scott Stratten, James Wedmore, and Gary Vaynerchuk who all teach that you can’t just post a link to someone and expect them to click on it. Even more importantly get them to buy into your product.

I think Scott said it best in one of his video’s; this is like me going into a shoe store and the sales person throwing a shoe which hits me square in the face. Then asks me if I would like to buy that shoe because it will help me look better while I roller blade. I know WHAT! doesn’t make sense right? I don’t wear shoes when I wear roller blade, I wear roller blades. I’m deviating from Scott’s scenario a bit but I want to prove a point here. Then when you ask 3 questions at tops, about the product they answer you shorter and shorter until they just walk away in mid conversation. Then they target another defenseless shopper and christen them with the other shoe  square in the noise and go through that process with them.

This is no different from this guy messaging me out of the blue and saying this link will help me make more money. I should of asked what if I want to make less money? Does this link help me do that or what if I want to make someone I really don’t like make less money, will that link help? Come on!

People have to learn just because we have access to hundreds of thousands if not millions of people with just one post, message…etc doesn’t mean we have the right to disregard we are people. I am receiving more and more of these frustrating direct spam messages that I am going to start calling them out until we as a business community don’t let these people get away with it anymore.

1) We are people that need to connect, if you want to build your business build that relationship first and care about your community (clients for businesses)

2) Ask permission, don’t hit me with your shoe without getting to know me. I might be wearing my steel toe work boots and I throw back with ninja like accuracy.

Social Tools are just tools, they do not give you permission to spam me or anyone else with information they are not interested in.  Build up that relationship first, get to know the person and then ask permission if they would like you to send them information about your product and/or service…etc.

Sales over that past 30+ years has never changed, we just have more information available to us at the touch of our finger tips and connect at the speed of now.

I am absolutely no body when it comes to the Social Media Marketing industry and I have seen enormous amounts of success using Social Media Marketing because I know a few truths which has made me successful

1) Bring joy to myself and then bring joy to others

2) Social Media tools are no different from me being on my phone at home in a conference call with millions of people. The way I act is no different.

3) Care about your community (clients for businesses) and they will help you grow past your wildest dreams.

The Secret to Overcoming Your Challenges Workshop

Special Guest Instructor

David Cohen

I spoke to David Cohen and he is going to come out on March 24th as a Guest Instructor.  Make sure you don’t miss out David and I are going to provide some amazing insight for 2012 which will help you overcome your challenges.

 

I wrote a post a few weeks back called “The Secrets to Challenges” where I discussed the negative ego and how to overcome it.

Since that article was published I’ve had numerous people ask me for help with their challenges. This ranges from having problems with their significant other, problems with business growth, not getting the results from Social Media Marketing, to people just feeling depressed and they don’t know why.  All of this made me wonder are there more people going through these types of challenges out there? Are these same people looking for solutions to their challenges but are being overtaken by whatever is going on in their lives.  Or is it even worse; are they going through something and/or things but don’t have the tools to deal with it, they are feeling frustrated, getting upset, even mad at the people around them but feel everything is ok and just saying to themselves “This is just Life”.  Look around you and tell me if you know someone that fits this description.

I’m the Clinical Director and Holistic Lifestyle Coach at Ultimate Sports Therapy working with people with these challenges and more on a daily bases. I work with people to help them overcome these challenges and more in their lives, some of which include;

  •  Challenges with work, career and/or business
  •  Health issues sickness, fatigue, very low energy, inability to heal from an injury
  •  Past relationships coming back in their lives and not in a good way
  •  Financial stress, debit, insufficient income despite hard work
  •  A feeling of despair and a tendency to give up on what feels like a hopeless situation

These are just some of the examples of challenges I have been helping people to overcome.  Here are some of the tools I have given people to get to the root of the problem, understand it, and then take action towards success by facing that challenge head on. then give them action items to see success and deal with that challenge head on. These tools will provide control and empowerment when fully implemented.

We will be covering:

  • What is happening in 2012
  • Why are so many people going through challenges right now
  • How to discern where these challenge’s are coming from
  • The Truth about the Negative Ego
  • Where the Negative Ego comes from
  • Ways to deal with the Negative Ego Head on
  • Work on your personal challenges right in the workshop
  • Then learn how to turn around and achieve success quickly
  • And much more….

I am going to provide a 1 day workshop for people called “The Secrets to Overcoming Your Challenges”. This is going to be a trial workshop because I know so many people are dealing with personal challenges from different areas of their lives. The workshop will for people to personally learn about their challenges, address them head on and then I will give you tools that you can immediately start taking action.

I am also offering at this workshop called another business focused full day session called “The Truth About Business” in which I will be showing people in the workshop the New Paradigm of business, why people are having in their business and/or work, how you can use the tools I will be teaching to identify nature of those challenges, address them head on, then grow your business and community using the “Abundance Model”.

I truly believe that you have to deal with what I call the “I, We and All of your life”.  I am offering “The Secret to Overcoming Your Challenges” workshop first so that, we can take the necessary time to deal with your personal challenges that we discover in the workshop first. Then in the next workshop “The Truth About Business” we will work on the “We” relationships of your community, people around you and your business/career.

If you know anyone that would benefit from attending this workshop, please have them sign up at

www.knssconsulting.com/events.html 

Please share this with your communities

Who Would of Thought Starting Over Would Be so Crazy….

First I would like to say thank you to all my friends in my community who have been amazing at helping me rebuild and get back to living my dream.

On February 10th, 2012 I wrote a blog post called “Starting Over Again” where the main picture is this one below which really says it all for me

It’s only been 13 days since I wrote that post, I can’t believe it either and I have broke through most of the obstacles to the point that I am almost back on my feet. I am still working on the financial which I know will take time but it is coming.  I couldn’t have done this all by myself I have a great network of friends who have stepped up and worked with me to get me where I am today. With my drive, determination, dream and their knowledge, support and understanding I wouldn’t have turned this around so quickly.  Just to name a few people I would like to thank for all their guidance, love and support: Nikki Hayes , David Cohen , Ann Burns , Laurie Carleton Smith Suzanne Hanlon , Jennifer Kennedy , David Ledoux just to name a few. I have hyper linked their names to their Facebook Pages if you want to connect with them. All I ask is this PLEASE be respectful when connecting with them. They are amazing people and if you treat them that way they will provide amazing insight,  support and welcome you into their community. Which means NO Pitching or Selling they have their own successful businesses and are doing very well.

Now lets talk about how this has turned around because I am sure some if you are going through the same challenges I just went through.

  • Loss of job, career, business went under
  • Break up with loved one
  • Having to find work to make ends meet
  • Concerned about bills

Some of us are facing these challenges right now as I am writing this post. The question is what do you do to get out of it, how do you find a job, get a steady income coming in so you can put food on the table, roof over your head and clothes on your back? How was I able to go through my situation and within 13 days have money coming in, be able to pay my bills and have a strategy that is working to get me back to living my legacy?

This is the formula that I used to get myself to where I am today:

First, I worked on my expectations- Which means I had to make sure my ego was in check that I become truly humble in this situation and not let my ego get the best of me. For example some of the lies it would bring up are: “I can’t work at that warehouse, I’m a successful Coach”, “$10.25 an hour, WHAT! that is too little, I was making $100.00 per hour”…etc.  I had to understand that this is my journey and to be thankful for what I have, to appreciate that $10.25 was what I needed to make right now to have stability. Not to settle on $10.25 but to appreciate that I could have a foundation to build on and to manage my time so I could do the things I needed to rebuild.  For example:

  • Interviews
  • Talks/Presentation/Workshops
  • Meeting with people
  • Going to networking meetings
  • Social Marketing (Blog Posts/Videos)

My skills have not changed I just need to work harder to market myself and educate people that I don’t just have the knowledge but I can prove what I can do. The best way now is to show you personally.

Which brings me to my second point- Have an action plan in place don’t be complacent because money is coming in get frustrated and unhappy that you are in this place that you want to be living your legacy. Now it is a little bit of a conflict in what I am saying and I will explain.  If you are happy and joyful that you are working at a warehouse you will settle and not work to achieve higher levels of success. You will not push yourself to get out of that job and one month will become 6 months, which will become a year and you will look back and say if I only did…. I should have ….

To show you exactly how this conversation would go for me personally ” Thank you for letting me work at this warehouse and paying me, I do appreciate it. I am not happy with the situation, I am tired, fatigued, sore, I am not able to work with people like I want to, I only have a limited amount of time to do the things I enjoy. So I don’t have time to waste working too long at this job which is only temporary and I need to move on.”

Now the action plan:

1) Write out your Legacy; what do you want to do each and every day

2) Tell the entire world! Seriously, anyone you come in contact with when they ask you what you do give them your 30 second elevator speech.  “My name is Brandon Krieger I’m a Social Technologies, Holistic Lifestyle Coach and Professional Speaker. I work with People world wide to help them achieve success personally and Professionally”

3) Cut down on all expenses that are not needed at this time. VERY IMPORTANT do not focus on the debt, reduce what you can and set a plan in motion to pay your bills. The more you can automate it the better at this point. Speak to a good financial advisor who can show you how to do this. If you can’t find one send me an e-mail

4) Here is where all your focus needs to be- How can you make money doing what you enjoy by:

– Having a clear understanding of what you want to do

-Market Research

– Connect with Recruiters

– Connect with the niche community

– Ask questions and see how you can help

– Tell the world what you are doing

and when you are using Social Marketing this is what I would recommend you do

1) Educate

2) Answer questions

3) Then promote your product/service

Key points here 

When it comes to sales – People buy from people they KNOW, LIKE AND TRUST that is why it’s so important to follow this 80/20 rule. 80% of the time you should be doing #1 Educating and #2 Answering Questions and then 20% of the time #3 Promoting your product/service.

This is just a brief overview of what I have been doing to get back on my feet to the point that I have several proposals I am working on for companies to help them with their Social Technologies and Social Marketing.  I have had a few interviews in the last 2 weeks for great companies that are still in the interview process, thanks Jasneet from www.altisHR.com  amazing Recruiting and Marketing Strategist.

Are You Hungry Enough To Achieve Success…

 

Yesterday was a busy day for me, I had 1 early morning meeting with a large Corporation and then in the afternoon I had another amazing meeting with one of the top marketing companies in Toronto. Both meetings were in regards to me working Social Marketing with them.

The question I have for myself is this

“Am I doing enough?”

“Am I hungry enough to achieve success?”

“What am I willing to do that the other people in my niche are just not doing?”

If you are an entrepreneur ask yourself these exact questions and see what you come up with. I find that every time I ask these questions there is always more I can do.

Gary Vaynerchuk calls it “Hustling” and to be honest I never realized how much you have to want to succeed. You have to be willing to give it your all. Put yourself out there and when you hear “No” you just keep going, find other ways.

Ask yourself these questions today and see what you come up with.

 

Love & Chi
