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

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

The Truth…

It’s 6am in the morning and I have had a busy day yesterday.  Some of the challenges of yesterday I just can’t get off my mind because people I see are going through such challenges.  I feel bad from them but I know for most of them it’s their journey to learn from. The hard part of it is I know most of what they are going through is an illusion just like the Movie The Matrix.

 Thanks for the image http://www.supermaw.com

We all think what is happening around us is “The Truth” but in reality it isn’t. I am sure most of you are going WHAT! this guys is crazy, let me explain.

Each day we wake up our mind start to work and then this internal voice start to  convince us how our day is, are we still, tired…etc Is it going to be a good day or bad day. As we go through the day this internal voice tells us all sorts of stories.  Someone is mad at us, this person sucks and worse it starts attacking us saying stuff like, you are not good enough, you don’t have time to do blah blah blah.  Some of us have an understanding of it and call this voice in the back of our head, the negative ego, demonic…etc whatever you may call it, it is not The Truth, it is just an illusion of it.

I’m going to refer to the voice as the “Negative Ego” just so we understand each other.

When working with people all over the world I can hear this negative ego tell people stories when they articulate their challenges and the reasons why they can’t do something.  My negative ego overtime has decided to take steroids and bulk up because when I was younger it was able to get into my head and control me. For example when I got married my negative go told me I could do it, I shouldn’t listen to people around me that I shouldn’t rush in, I shouldn’t get married so soon. Take your time, get to know each other…etc Nope my negative ego told me I was  man and these people had no clue what they were talking about. Thanks Negative ego for all your help, 2 years later I got a divorce and had years of going in and out of court.  Which if I would have been present and not listen to the negative ego that I was ready and I could support a family at 20 years old. Knowing what I know now I would have never gone through that, I would have taken my time, I would have made sure I had a good job vs. working 3 to make ends meet.  Don’t get me wrong, good things have come from it, my son, better understanding of relationships…etc But I am sure I could have learned in an easier and cheaper way.

In the past 5 years I have learned about the Negative ego and developed an understanding that I know when it decides to chime in to see if it can’t steer me in the wrong direction. I can catch it about 95% of the time and be able to stop its attack. Don’t get me wrong it is constant work to be on the ball because the Negative ego is like a ninja in the night. This reminds me of a quote from another Keanu Reeves movie “The Devil’s Advocate” was “The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist.” Welcome the Negative Ego!

 Thank you for the image http://paralleldownloads.blogspot.com

It’s goal is to steer you off track, almost like a puppet and it’s puppeteer pulling the strings. The Negative ego wants to make you jump when it says jump, to stop when it wants you too and to hold you back from what I consider is the reason why we are here.  Which if you can really live this simple concept your life as you know it will change. Here it is, the reason why I feel we are here is this

1) Bring Joy to yourself

2) Bring Joy to others

When I talk about Joy this is not superficial joy of a car, house, rings…etc this is true joy which makes you happy, which makes you feel valued. If you can do this for you first and fill your cup up so you are overflowing with joy. Then you can bring joy to the people around you. Help them bring Joy to themselves so they can bring Joy to others. Think of this as an MLM style business we are all so familiar in.  But there is no opt in, you don’t have to purchase any product. You get to try the product for free as much as you want. Then go and tell your family, friends, potential business partners who you know who would benefit from this. Does this sound similar lol I have been in a few MLM’s so I know the lingo 🙂 .

I use this reference for 2 reasons, one we all know it too well on both sides either we have been approached by someone asking us to join a MLM company or we have or are in a MLM company so we understand the reference.

The 2nd reason is because to show you how the negative ego spurs it’s evil little head.

How many of you are in MLM companies read that previous paragraph referencing to MLM type lingo and got upset. Felt I didn’t value them…etc Be honest trust me I was there at one point for many of my business opportunities.  When I was in an MLM company I would have commented on this very post not reading the rest. Trying to prove that this person didn’t know what they were talking about. Then I would try to set up a meeting because I knew they needed my product. I am sure we all know someone who has done this, I know I have… ME!

Welcome to the negative ego because “The Truth” is MLM’s to me is just like any business which I have high respect for and I do coach people how to be successful in MLM type business.  Some of my best friends are MLM’ers and a few are very successful which I have learned a lot from.  They have helped me in my 2 business’s, which is keeping me very busy hint hint any of you thinking to contact me about joining their business. I respect that you have a business and wish you all the best.

Lets get back to the point at hand, The Truth is what is present in front of you.

Now anyone of you seeing a Coach, therapist…etc please apologize to the person you are working with for me because I am going to save you a lot of money right here. I am going to give you a few tips to use when the negative ego rear’s its little head so you can stay on track. This way you can do the 2 fundamental things we talked about before, remember… Bring Joy to yourself and then Bring Joy to others.

If you read Byron’s Katie book “The Work” you will remember the 4 questions

1) Is it True?

2) Can you absolutely know that it’s True?

3) How do you react, what happens, when you believe that thought?

4) Who would you be without the thought?

What do you think is that thought she is talking about? If you guessed it, it’s the negative ego coming up. Byron Katie is just providing you an assessment tool to be able to catch that little ninja at work.  This is a tool that if you use it often you will be able to catch that little guy 95% of the time. Which will save you a lot of frustration, plain and sleepless nights.

Our lives are supposed to be abundant with joy in all area’s of life. If it isn’t abundant then you need to assess where there could be more joy in your life and how you can change to see the joy in those areas. Don’t get me wrong sometimes we are in the fog and need someone to show us the light, I have been there when I was going through my divorce I thought life as I knew it was going to end. I was never going to be successful and that I was going to be tied up in courts for the rest of my life. Guess what it has changed! It took a lot of work and some amazing people in my life but I was able to completely change from IT consultant to a Holistic Lifestyle Coach. To unhappy with life to being happy with everything I have and enjoying life. It is all possible, it just depends on you.

Now, It wouldn’t be easy because the negative ego wants you to fail, it doesn’t want you to succeed. It’s goal is to hold you back to make you sanitary that you still go on but you don’t have any drive. This is what I recommend you make sure when you decide to go through your changes do it with a support group and a team of people who truly understand this. This way you can overcome that negative ego and see success quickly.

I wish you all Love & Chi,

P.S. if anyone see’s the negative ego in a dark alleyway lovingly go kick it in the nuts for me and say that’s from Brandon! 🙂

Brandon “The Twitter Doctor” Krieger Unpacks Blue Yeti Pro Microphone

Un Packing of my NEW Blue Yeti Pro Microphone

As you can see I am building up Video & Audio Recording equipment to provide better information and training. When you are looking at making video/audio products you want to make sure you have the right equipment. I found hands down when it came to Audio clarity Blue Microphones were the product to go with.

I haven’t been doing video’s in a while because I really wanted to provide good quality video’s and products for my Business Friends. For example I was going to do an e-book on how to build your Twitter account but I have decided because video has become so big I am going to do a video training and show you exactly what I do to build my Twitter account.

Here is a question for you, if I was going to charge for this information how much would you pay?  $20, $35, $50…etc How much would you be willing to spend? Comment below to let me know your thoughts.

Brandon “The Twitter Doctor’s” Krieger Camping Experience!

This is not a Social Technologies post more of a personal one to show that all work and no play is just not fun.

If anyone knows me personal they will know this was me stepping out my my comfort zone and trying new things.  In no way am I a wilderness type of person but since I’ve been working so hard I know I have to enjoy myself and try new things.  So this weekend I went camping, recorded a few video’s my experience and took a few pictures below  the video’s 🙂

Are You Socializing on Your Social Network?

Hi Everyone,

It’s been a week since I did my last video. Since then several questions keep popping up as I work with people worldwide like; How do I make more money on the Social Networks? How can I build a bigger following? How can I get a higher return on my investment?…etc

I tell each of them it comes down to making Business Friends and Socializing on your social networks. To many entrepreneurs and online business people are not getting this simple concept that it’s about the relationships you develop. There is no difference from making friends locally to making friends globally it’s still building relationships. When you think of how you and your friends help each other when you need it, there is no difference from the people you meet on line.

I see too many people missing this key point of Social Media, Social Marketing, Social Networking and whatever other “Social” term you want to use. They are missing out that they need to socialize and build relationships. Think of it this way. Who are you more likely to buy a product/service from? Someone you don’t know or a friend who has been there for you and you trust? Sounds pretty simple to answer but how many of us are online right now trying to promote our business/services but not even talking to any of the people listening?

Take a look at your Social Technologies and see how you can build friendships from them? How can you start conversing with them so that you both have a equal relationship (50/50) so that you can help each other.

I know people talk about how important it’s in business to Brand yourself,  develop your USP (Unique Sales Proposition)…etc Now this is just my opinion but if you don’t have any people listening who is going to care what your brand is or what your USP is? Would your friends be listening…hmm?

Think about that when you are looking at your Feeds on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn…etc and watching what people post.  See if you’re more interested in the product or service someone is offering or what your friends are up to. There’s some food for thought.

Keep an eye out for my next interviews, I have asked Steve Gaul 121 Guinness Book of Records Drumathon, Deni Gauthier Owner of a Record Label/Musician and my secret weapon who has been in the industry since the late 1980’s and has coached some really successful people.

Thank you for following me and I would love to hear your feed back

Love & Chi,

Social Marketing Interview with Len Carby Brampton Junior Council and Financial Advisor

This Morning I had the privilege to meet with Len Carby Brampton Junior Council and Financial Advisor.

Len took a few minutes out of his busy day to sit down with me and do a video. Len has so much experience working in Business, Finance and Government it is great to have a the opportunity to be able to be able to ask him some questions.

Len is a Politician and ran for the last elections using a lot of Social media in his campaign to really get his message out to the people. Len has now started to use that in his Financial Advisor business with a lot of trial and error.

Len’s Websites are

www.lencarby.com – Political website and a direct link to his Financial Advising website is on the top menu “A Simple Life Plan” or you can go directly to the website at www.asimplelifeplan.ca

The one Social Marketing Golden Nugget that Len was recommending is don’t separate your people on the social sites. Provide them your information and let them decide if they are interested. Len has found that the people he would have never thought were interested in certain parts of his business and/or life are actually the ones calling him for more information.

I would really like to thank Len Carby for his time and please check out http://www.lencarby.com for more information. You can also follow Len Carby on Twitter @LenCarby

Watch the video above for more information.

Keep an eye on my posts because this is just the beginning

Entrepreneurs using Social Marketing need to Build Friendships First

Hey Everyone I am back doing video’s again. I have been quiet over the last few months because I have been busy working in the trenches. I have been working with a Record Label, Politician, Real Estate Agent…etc. I also have been writing e-books and listening to my business friends on the industry challenges.

The biggest challenge that I am finding is that entrepreneurs that are trying to get online are using the old style of business to try to use Social Marketing. They are getting frustrated and not seeing results which is completely understandable.

Using Social Marketing is all about building relationships and connecting to your followers where ever they maybe. You have to court them just like a date, as well you have to speak the same language.

I talk more about his in my YouTube video that you must watch.
I am going to start doing more video and I have asked all my business friends if they would do interviews with me to help you guys out. They have all agreed that they would love to do interviews on how they use Social Marketing and tips they would recommend.

Love & Chi,
