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

Really? Are The Answers Right In front Us…

Interesting how at the exact time you need something it is right there for you.  I’m sure we all have heard this from someone at one point in our life. If you ask and listen you will receive the answer, or something along that line.

Yesterday I received a tongue lashing from someone I highly respect and consider a really good friend. I was pretty up set and asked a simple question “What the fuck!” Then a lot crap followed, my negative ego saw a huge opening and it had a field day with me for about 15 minutes until I thought I need to ask a better question.  Which was “What do I do now?” I looked up at my Facebook feed and saw this picture pop up. I was like really! Come on!

I personally know this is how the universe works, if you settle yourself, ask the right questions and listen the answers will appear.

I have been receiving amazing videos, content and just listening to motivational audios guiding me back to a better state.

Which brings me to today. I decided to treat myself like a coaching client that I would work with that basically is at their last straw and needs my help.

First I did a history of what was going on just so I had an understanding how bad it was.  If you understand where they have been you know how much they have learned as well if there are cycles they are going to repeat which might need to be changed.

My Answer– When I was most successful I was chasing my dream but then settled because I got into a relationship and lost that drive that nothing will stop me to be successful, that I would do anything to get to that next level; stay up until 3am in the morning when I had to work at 6am, read and study until my eyes hurt, talk to everyone and anyone about what I wanted to accomplish, go to interviews after interviews until I got a contract, then once I got that one worked there for a period of time I would work on a better contract and then a better one, then one I had was never good enough, I would work my ass of at my contract doing the best job I could, taking extra hours you name it.

My biggest challenge wasn’t the relationships it was me, I settled and didn’t realize it.

Second I asked myself about the present and how am I doing today.  To be compassionate with myself and understand that I might need to vent and deal with some things as well understand my true pain and frustration I am dealing with today.

My Answer– I’m feeling disappointment that I am in this situation again. Kind of confused of what to do and where to go. I know my skill set is this

  •  Warehousing
  •  Security
  • Customer Service
  • IT Work
  •  Social Marketing/ Social Technologies
  • Coaching People

The main ones I want to work towards is Social Technologies Coaching combined with Holistic Lifestyle Coaching.

Third what do I want to accomplish in the next 3 months and 6 months this way I can do some future planning and draw out an action plan on how to get there. Plus I can ask the right questions so that I can open myself up to receive information, assistance if need be and have a clear direction to where I need to go.

My Answer –  What I would like to accomplish is get back on my feet in the next 30 days financially and start growing my coaching clients and professional speaking again. In the next 3 months back to coaching full time and building my business. 6 months I will be in demand because I provide great service, results and people love working with me.

How I am going to do this?

My Answer – Since I have more time on my hands here is my action plan

1) Get a J.O.B. to cover my cost for at least the next 6 months this way I don’t have to worry about finances

2) Market Research – find out what people need help with. See if there is something I can provide a solution for that challenge either by one on one coaching, e-book, seminar, talk, webinar…etc How can I provide help to them.

3) Provide Education- writing articles, doing video’s, seminars…etc this has several benefits which are

  • I get things off my chest and stop holding them in, very therapeutic
  • I’m able to brain storm my ideas and be held accountable because I’m doing a public journal that anyone can read.
  • People I might have the opportunity to work with will see what I can do and realize what type of person I am. That I am honest, hard working, don’t give up and will stay true to my word. “My word is my bond”
  • Help people who might be going through the same situation and don’t know what to do

4) Schedule – Daily blogging and possibly bi weekly video’s depending on content and time.

5) Making a list of companies I want to work with and finding ways of connecting with them that are not through their normal channels. I have a few ideas but one challenge which I’m putting out there to the universe is, in the next 30 days I will personally own a

MAC Book PRo 15inch with

i7 Quad processor 2.5GHz

8Gb 1333 MHz DDR3 SDRAM

750GB Serial ATA Drive @ 7200 rpm

Apple Care protection plan

1 year One to One membership

With the newest version of Camtasia Studio

Benefit— I will be so excited to be able to record my video’s, interview, edit them and post them in 1/3 of the time. Skype calls, Google+ hangouts…etc. It takes me a few hours on my amazing Dell XP and some things that it’s just too slow to do.

Don’t be scared to ask for what you want, you never know how things will manifest, but you have to be willing to put yourself out there at all costs.

That is my rough draft of my action plan and I have a morning meeting with myself each morning until I achieve success.

Are you going through a hard time right now? Have you been your own coach and asked yourself these questions?

I would love to hear your responses.

Love & Chi

My Own Personal Challenge- Social Technologies

  Who is up for the Challenge?

I’m sitting here late at night doing some market research and wanted to see how one of my keywords were doing, “Social Technologies”.  You can see the results above, let me explain what they mean just to make sure we are all on the same page.

First this is geographically done meaning no matter where you are on the world you will not see the same results as I do. Google has changed their algorithm to provide us with the most relevant search results. One of those changes is by location.  I tell you this because if you do a search and don’t see the exact same results you might question where am I receiving my search results from.

First the key word “Social Technologies”  which is one of the terms I use to describe all the Social sites, media, networking…etc the are all just technologies to help us better connect with people on a global scale.

Next “About 275,000,000 results (0.19 seconds)”  which means there are 275 million links created by people that are related to “Social”, “Technologies” and “Social Technologies”. Now if you use proper SEO and tag your content, website and/or video correctly you will have better results.

Which means:

Description: Social Technologies

Link/URL: http://www.socialtechnologies.com or http://www.domainname.com/social-technologies or any various of the two.

SEO: Alt Tags, Meta Tags, Descriptions…etc are all properly coded with “Social Technologies”

Tags: “Social Technologies”

Relevant content: Written, recorded audio or video talking about Social Technologies in the correct context.  For a quick example if I was to write and article talking about fishing and every paragraph I added “Social Technologies” it wouldn’t be relevant which now the search engines can scan content of all kinds and decipher if it’s relevant.

I wanted to give you a little insight before I tell you what my Social Technologies challenge is.

If you look back at the picture you can see I have put a RED arrow pointing to the links. When you go through the list you can see I am not even close to the top. My website is 4th from the bottom on the first page, now don’t get me wrong it takes people a lot of hard  SEO work, proper marketing to get to the first page.  Which I am going to challenge myself over the next 30 days to crush the first page of “Social Technologies”.

Here is my own personal 30 day Challenge

1) To have one of links rank #1 on the first page of Google for the key word “Social Technologies”

2) To have the entire first page with just my content, of course it will all be relevant information helping people how to use Social Technologies properly.  No false backlinks…etc no Black Hat SEO tricks all proper marketing that I have learned over the years.

Today’s date is February 12th, 2012 and I will do a follow up post by March 12th 2012. Now if I complete the challenge sooner I will post my results before.

Home work for you guys reading this…If you’re in business and want to really get in front of the people searching for the keyword that your customers are searching for. I would recommend you do the exact same thing I am doing with one of your main key words.

I would love to see your results before and after. Send them to me by either post or e-mail @ info@knssconsulting.com

Let me know if you have any questions.

Good luck 🙂

Love & Chi

Do You Have Unlimiting Beliefs

Good Morning Everyone,

First let me say thank you to all my family and friends who have been amazing in helping me through this transition period. Change is never easy but if you embrace the change, good things will come.

Today I would like to thank Nikki Hayes who sent me this video of Kyle Cease this morning. As I was saying in yesterday’s post, I was listening to Tony Robbins yesterday and this was just another reminder.

This just goes to show that we all can have limiting beliefs if we chose too. Damn mine came up over the last week like tornado. Or we could have unlimiting beliefs to achieve whatever we want in life. All you have to do is ask the right questions and then put action towards it.

What questions are you asking today to work on your unlimiting beliefs?

Now here is a question I want to ask you. Have you ever really listened to that voice in your head when you ask these questions? Have you take actions on the recommendations?

Here are my questions:

  •  What do I need to do today to make more money?
  • What do I need to do to book more Paid Social Marketing Professional Speaking Gigs?
  • What do I need to do to consult with more businesses on Social Marketing?
  • What do I need to do to have more one on one coaching clients?

What are your questions? I would love to hear them.

Share this post with your friends.

Love & Chi

Starting Over Again


WOW it has been a rough week for me, everything in my life has been flipped upside down, work, relationships and finances.

Starting over is never easy to do this will be my second time in life where I’ve had to rebuild from scratch.

I want to give you a little history first, most of you don’t know but I dropped out of High School to work full-time. I wasn’t seeing any benefits from school at the time and decided I wanted to start making money. I first started working at McDonald’s full-time and then progressed into working at warehouses doing general labour jobs. I progressed into a manager’s position at a warehouse thanks to a friend of mine and after a few years decided I wanted to work in security as a Security Guard, not IT Security just to clarify. It was a great job and lots of perks but I got married to soon, did it for all the wrong reasons and with in 2 years we were in the process of getting divorced. Through this process I decided I wanted more so I went back to school to become a Network Specialist working in IT. I stayed with that career until my back injury learned an abundant knowledge about Health and Wellness. I decided to become a Holistic Lifestyle Coach and coach people on how to have better wellness Personally, Professionally and Spiritually. From there because of the recession and what people were looking how to use the Social networks I decided to coach people on Social Technologies.

Now you have an idea how I progressed and FYI I did go back and get my High school diploma and I graduated from triOS College to continue my formal education. I don’t stop learning each and every day 🙂

We come to the present day which it has happened again, not the married part but my life being flipped up side down again as I mentioned above. Now this is no ones fault and I am not here to point fingers. It is just a hard time for everyone and this is how the situation is affected me.

Since my revenue stream has been taken away, my Social Technologies coaching business has been slow which I think it’s because of the recession among other things.  I have had to look at what I needed to do to bring in revenue because I have to pay the bills.  Trust me it is hard for anyone to have to step back from what you are doing, but to step back to the start by working temp jobs is hard. I had to really fight against my ego and leave it at the door and I know I have to do what it takes, no matter what it is. While going through my first start over I worked as a bouncer as I went through school so I understand the importance of not giving up and doing what it takes.

For now I have decided working with a temp agency would be the direction I will go right now while I work on meetings, interviews and negotiating contracts.

I’m always honest with you guys and hold nothing back… I will tell you it was hard to walk up to the warehouse door this morning at 8am and tell the warehouse manager I was there for work. I am a public speaker, martial artists, and removed huge guys from bars without a second thought. I was pretty nervous and uncomfortable to walk in there to start work, but I put that all aside and went in.

The work I had to do today was general labour clean up; here is a picture below of the main area prior to cleaning it  

What you kind of see in front of the broom is raised cement which my job today was to level out the floor.  Using a hammer drill and there were 4 rows of this type of cement raised.  I had to clean everything up, break down the cement and then clean up again.

Before I got started I was able to meet some of the guys who worked at this job and wow it was a humbling experience. Asking a question as simple as “How long have you guys all worked here” created a conversation which I felt in AHH! over. There where engineers, medical professionals…etc. that we’re all working at this warehouse for 15 years+ for one reason or another. In my head I was thinking WOW the dedication these guys have and loyalty to work this long with a company with their expertise.  They were all amazing guys and so helpful, just easy going and loved what they did. Who am I to come in and complain about the challenges I am going through.

Now back to work, I brought my iPhone which has Tony Robbins Personal Power II series on it. I was able to listen too my MP3’s while I was working, this was another humbling experience.  Listening to 7 hours of Tony Robbins really broke down my life, what my challenges are and how I relate to them. It is easier to look at other peoples challenges and see what is going on vs. looking at your own especially when you are in the heat of everything. Thanks to my Grandmother she taught me to keep pushing to never give up, to be open to help and listen. Which I listened to every word that Tony Robbins had to say and Wow. Realizing I’m not in the life I want, not living with passion and letting my F.E.A.R.’s get the best of me really opened my eyes.

Tony says over and over again

  • you have to really feel the pain of where you are because we move towards pleasure and away from pain.
  • Then you have to want to change.
  • Have an emotional investment.
  • Then decide.
  • Then consistent actions and learning by doing.

At the start of this morning I was thinking; am I going to make it? How am I going to pay my bills? Do I still want to be a Coach?

After meeting those great guys today, listening to Tony Robbins I realized everything that has happened is just the past and what I have learned from this is:

1) I’m not financially independent like I have been in my past, which is my responsibility.

2) I was reliant on someone else

3) I didn’t really think of what I needed for myself and take responsibility of making it happen

4) I’m not happy!

I really connected to what has happened and realized this change is actually very good for me, it’s like a fresh start but I have a lot of work ahead of me.

I need to build up some revenue first and for most, to be able to take care of my expenses and having fun while doing it. Then I am going to keep doing what I love which is Coaching people. Tony Robbins stated in his audio’s we are no different from him. He just understands what he has to do, then does it.  Which reminds me of the book “Think and Grow Rich” where you read the stories of hardships and how these amazing people went through such challenges but they never gave up. They understood their dream, kept with it no matter what anyone said and achieved it.

My dream is to be a Social Technologies coach combined with my Holistic Lifestyle Coaching background and teach, present, consult to people my Keeping Network & Success Simple principals.  This has never changed and is the legacy I would like to leave behind.

That’s why my goal is this

1) Work contracts with Entrepreneurs and Businesses, consulting on Social Marketing and Social Technologies.

2) Build up my financial stability again

3) Start working with the people I am in business with to help grow our businesses through  Social Marketing, Professional Speaking and Social Technologies Coaching.

P.S. if you have read my previous blog posts you will know I always like working with people to help everyone grow vs. doing it on my own. That is why I am looking for people/businesses to partner up with.

Have you ever had to start over again?

Are you going through a transition this year?

Are you living your dream right now?

I would love to hear your feed back.

Love & Chi,

Social Marketing Assessment Special!

I first want to apologize to everyone I don’t like to pitch or promote sales but I have been having several of people send me posts, questions…etc asking to work with me but when I tell them how much I charge they are not able to do it. Most of them because they are just starting out in their New Business venture.

It has got to the point I feel bad, I really want to help them. Which I have decided I have a few spots open that I can take on no more then 5 people at a very discounted rate. Where I will provide them the same Social Marketing Assessment I do for my business clients.

If you know anyone that has mentioned they would like help with their Social Marketing and just wants to know what to do. Tell them about this promotion if there is more then 5 people that need help I will work with my team to open up more spots. If you know me, you will know that my goal is to help as many people as I can this year.

CLICK HERE

Again I want to apologize for you readers that know that I don’t normally promote I just feel bad because our economy is not doing well and so many people just need a foundation for their Social Marketing that would really launch their business.

 

If you know anyone that would would like help please share this post with them.

I wish you all the best

Love & Chi,

How to Achieve Business Success….

Good Afternoon Everyone.

I’m having an interesting morning, woke up to this morning with the smell of ribs cooking in my slow cooker for my family Boxing Day party at 2pm today.

While sitting here I have been reading a few Facebook posts and articles.

One that really stuck out was the one from David Ledoux and he was writing about a business proposal he would like to submit to Dana White click here to read more.

This got me thinking about exactly what David was saying, how many of us have ideas that we are sitting on, that we haven’t put into action?

I know one of my core values I have learned and put into practice was this key tip which I want to give to you today, “Speed of Implementation”.

Whenever I had an idea in the past I would let it sit, think about it and then eventually 90% of my ideas I would do nothing with. Now since living by the “Speed of Implementation” I’ve seen so much more success and nothing has held me back from going for what I believe in. Getting interviews on Radio shows, working with amazing business’s and entrepreneurs, there has been so many great opportunities which have developed.

What business ideas do you have on the burner that you haven’t implemented?

Here is an accountability exercise for you; comment below with 3 of your best ideas just something short doesn’t have to be the full idea for example:

“Write my book on The Benefits on Twitter”

“Meet with…”

“Create Goal Setting Coaching Program”

Put your Twitter ID beside your comment and I will also Tweet it out so that everyone knows you are working on the business idea you post. This way there is no procrastinating you idea is out there and people who are interested will be waiting to hear how it’s going.

Don’t forget to comment below this article.

Love & Chi

Twitter is Dead…. Really!

You would be surprised at how many people tell me I don’t understand, no one is using Twitter anymore. Twitter is a dead tool; I need to move on to Facebook and/or Google Plus.

How many of you heard this from other professionals? Some person who is trying to teach you on what the trends are?

I’ll be completely honest with you guys like I always am. I really want to say to these people… “If you are having problems with using Twitter as a Social Networking tool all you have to do is ask for help, you don’t need to slam me for being able to use it properly”. That is what I would like to say, but I’m patient and listen to what they have to say. I ask them if they would like to learn how to use Twitter like I do to build my community? Do you know what happens? 98% of these people say NO they are fine. The other 2% of them say they will try it for a bit and give up because they still use the same thinking to try to build their followers but now use different tools, gimmicks…etc Be it trying to automate their posts, gorilla market by sending out numerous amounts of posts per day..etc.

Try This: If you are having problems with Twitter and really don’t understand what I am talking about I would like you to try this below and I want to know how it goes. Seriously! If you want to learn how to use Twitter properly do this task below and let me know what happens.

First I want you to write down 10 marketing comments that you feel are relevant to marketing your business through Twitter and I will give you a few examples to show you and you can make up the rest.

1)       Learn how to make an extra $1,000 this week “click here

2)      Want to have clients knocking on your front door “click here

3)      I have the top 10 Secrets to building your business “click here

…etc you can fill in the rest.

Here is what I want you to do, once you make the list of 10 comments trying to keep it to 140 characters I want you to exchange ““click here to “call me back – 111-111-1111” and put your phone number they can call you back on.

Now I want you to call someone you kind of know but not really well and do this

1)       Call them and if they answer or not just say one of the comments fully

–          “Learn how to make an extra $1,000 this week call me back – 111-111-1111”

Then hang up, don’t let them respond.

2)      If they call back don’t answer their phone call let it go to voice mail

3)      Then in 15 min have another comment ready and then call them back

–          “Want to have clients knocking on your front door call me back – 111-111-1111”

Then hang up on them again, don’t let them respond.

By now you should be getting the point, if you don’t repeat this a few more times.

Most people would be annoyed and eventually tell you to stop calling them, I know I would.  The point here is this; we think that because we only have 140 characters we have to jam a sales pitch into this small post. Which is not how we talk to people in our normal day, why would we do it because we only have 140 characters? We shouldn’t, that’s the point. There is no difference how we need to relate to people online or offline and this key fact is why people fail at using Twitter. A lot of people are joining Twitter because they understand it’s a great Social Networking tool to meet new people, but they stop talking to people and start throwing out comments hoping someone is listening. As the “Try This” home work shows above, you will find that it doesn’t connect to people and only frustrates them.

Let’s throw out some really useless stats that people think matter.  Which I will explain why I say they don’t matter.

#tweets

  • 3 years, 2 months and 1 day. The time it took from the first Tweet to the billionth Tweet.
  • 1 week. The time it now takes for users to send a billion Tweets.
  • 50 million. The average number of Tweets people sent per day, one year ago.
  • 140 million. The average number of Tweets people sent per day, in the last month.
  • 177 million. Tweets sent on March 11, 2011.
  • 456. Tweets per second (TPS) when Michael Jackson died on June 25, 2009 (a record at that time).
  • 6,939. Current TPS record, set 4 seconds after midnight in Japan on New Year’s Day.


#accounts

  • 572,000. Number of new accounts created on March 12, 2011.
  • 460,000. Average number of new accounts per day over the last month.
  • 182%. Increase in number of mobile users over the past year.

All from http://blog.twitter.com/2011/03/numbers.html  which you can see for yourself.

Why these stats really don’t matter… no matter how many people are following you on Twitter or if you are in a local meeting of 15 people. If you don’t know how to build a friendship with someone it wouldn’t matter!

I know this is a little harsh but I really want to point this out because this is the difference of you working with your community and building “Business Friendships” that help each other and to be honest each of you see monetary rewards if done properly  vs. you pitching your product/service on these social networking tools and getting frustrated because no one is buying, just like your home work above. Trust me, I have been talking to Internet Marketers who are still pitching and selling, which they are feeling the crunch. I have talked to a lot of successful Internet Marketers who have changed their way of doing business and they are seeing the rewards very quickly.  This goes for any entrepreneur out there, social networking is about socializing.  The one who is getting the most business is not the one who has the best sales pitch. It’s the ones who are liked and have taken a true interest in their community.

To give you an idea of how it has helped me in this week alone.

I met Steve Huber from www.RealRadio.ca  Twitter ID is @RealRadiodotca we had a quick introduction on Twitter and exchanged contact information. We chatted on the phone the next day seeing how we could help each other out and what we’re both working on. After  a great conversation with Steve and discussing some amazing ideas, I have an interview with Steve next week and we have some plans on how to work together after the interview.  His listener base is 80,000+ and growing.

That is just the “Business Friend” I made this week. This happens all the time on Twitter because I am not using it as a selling forum. I am using the Twitter tool for what it was intended for, to be able to meet people all over the world. From there we chat as friends, get to know each other. If there is something we can help each other out with in our respective business then we will chat and see. If they need a service that I might know someone I will refer them to that contact of mine. Just like I would do with any of my friends.

I think of Twitter as my big community of friends, just because they are on Twitter it makes no difference to me. When I meet new people I ask them questions I would ask a person I would meet at a wedding or other non business social gathering. I get to know them and see how the friendship grows from there.

This is how my community on Twitter has grown so fast and I have been lucky enough to meet some amazing people who I have been blessed to now work with.

This doesn’t happen overnight and trust me it has to be a core value of yours to get to know people instead of trying to work an angle to make money.  My core value is to meet people, build up a friendship and then see where it goes from there.

Here is exactly what I do so you can do it for yourself

When I connect with someone I initially do some research on them if they have a blog, website, facebook page…etc whatever link they have put up on their Twitter bio. This way I can learn more about them. If they don’t I just ask them if they could tell me a little bit about themselves.

Then I ask them about what they are up too, what their plans are for the week/weekend depending where we are in the week. If they want to talk about their website or even their business if that is what they are promoting on Twitter I ask them questions about that. Then I continue the conversation in whatever direction they would like. If they want to talk about their business, what they are up to, a vacation they just took…etc. I listen and am very intrigued because to be honest it is awesome to meet new people and learn from them. Be it great places to stay when vacationing in different parts of the world to amazing business tips they have.

I take the time to learn and be present with the people I meet. If I can provide some insight or golden nuggets I will, but at the end of the day it is about building that friendship.

In my opinion Twitter is not dead; if you know how to use it as a Social Networking tool you will meet some amazing people. I know I do.

Love & Chi

The Good Life…

Yesterday Carolyn Zepf and I were invited to be guest speakers at a GoodLife training session with 150 Personal Trainer attending.  I want to talk about what we covered and then how it relates to all entrepreneurs, business people, energy workers…etc.

It was a fun session, lots of great trainers who are motivated to help their clients and keep developing to become better trainers.  Which is such an honour to be able help these professionals of all levels of knowledge and expertise.

The talk was mostly about continuing their education through courses, reading, watching video’s…etc. Plus we talked about how important it is to build a team of professionals that you can work with. How working with experts in different professions can really help the learning curve in nutrition, rehabilitation, energy workers…etc.

We did cover a little bit about Niche Marketing but we didn’t have a lot of time because they had so much more great information to cover from other speakers.

In this post I want to go over the Business partnership and really show how important it is to understand when you are in business.

Business Friendships

Over the years I have heard all different terms of working with other people, be it “Joint Venturing”, “Business Partners”…etc. Which in my mind it divides the relationship to just business, we don’t really use these titles with the intent to being entirely invested. There is a slight reservation of fully being invested personally to the business partnership. I find that people have a F.E.A.R. of being all in to the relationship so they don’t say what is on their mind. Now there could be different reasons for this; they are working on other projects separate from this business partnership, they don’t feel they can trust the person they are working with but want to see if there is a way to make money…etc. There are numerous of reasons why people don’t fully invest themselves into business partnerships which is completely understandable.

Here are the top reasons I feel why business partnerships fail

  1. The business is focused on making money first and not about helping people. Where one business partner(s) understand this key principal of helping people must be first, but the other person is only focused on making money and doesn’t care about helping people. The relationship start to struggle and the business starts to be affected
  2. Communication – people have an underlining F.E.A.R. that if they speak up they might cause issues and the business could be affected or…
  3.  Expectations are not set from the start of the business partnership. This causes turmoil later when people feel they are not being heard, they want certain things and they feel they are not being treated fairly.

There are many more I am sure, I just feel they are the top 3 that deal directly with the business relationship.

Having had the opportunity to coach people worldwide and take courses from numerous amounts of experts I heard a term that came up when relating to people when you decide to work with them. Eban Pagan called it “Business Friendships”, which at the time I felt I understood and connected with the term. It really hit me when I started to assess my own Business Friendships. When I looked through at myself and the people I was working with:  how I was relating to them; how I was holding them back and keeping them at arms length; and how I could see a lot of my actions were causing challenges in the business itself. That’s when a light turned on and I realized a simple analogy for me, relationships of any kind, dating, friendships, business are all just relationships. There is a courting period, I would have to communicate my expectation, have respect for myself and the person I was building that relationship with. Be compassionate, caring, really listen to what they wanted and needed for us to grow.

Once I started to really incorporate this concept into my Business Friendships, sadly a few relationships, business and personal were broken because they weren’t healthy. What was amazing was my new relationships both older ones and brand new ones were so much stronger. The growth was even faster then what anyone expected.

That is why I write this post today because I know there are a lot of people that are working with several people in their business: business partners, referral network, suppliers, distribution, be it co-workers, …etc. Whatever they maybe they are all still relationships.

When you work on building a strong Business Friendships with them both relationships will grow, personal and professional. Which will make it so much easier to grow.

Here are some tips on how to set your relationship up from the start and go in with the right foundation.

  1.  Make sure you know what you are looking for in a business friendship
  2.  Have your core expectations already set so that you can communicate what you need
  3.  Listen with understanding and compassion
  4.  If the relationship doesn’t fit with what you are looking for be honest and tell them. They might surprise you
  5.  Most important make sure it is FUN! Nothing worse then going into a relationship that it is all work and no play

These tips can be implemented if you are a Personal trainer working with a clinic, online marketer working with other online marketer, Energy healer working other light workers, the list goes on and on. They are all just relationships.

With all the changes that are happening I believe we need to start coming together to help each other out. No more competition, comparing ourselves to others for an illusion of success. In reality we can all be successful in what we do there is so much abundance for all of us we just have to learn how to work with each other.

You guys are my Business Friends and my goal is to keep providing articles like these ones.  What I ask is if you could do me a favour and share my articles in your Social Networks, which I hope will help you and your Business Friends achieve success Personally, Professionally and Spiritually.

Love & Chi
