@Joel Pinto Romero Thanks for sharing it Joel. I agree with you that people do equate overwhelmed with being successful, but as you say they need to delegate and learn to cut back on doing so many things.
3 weeks, 5 days ago on Why being overwhelmed shouldn’t become your normal state of business and life
@Joel Pinto I've noticed something that I consider quite curious about many business owners. They seem to want to avoid thinking about money or dealing with it in a proactive manner. I find it puzzling because money is the life blood of their business, but I think part of the issue is that money is so wrapped up in our survival instincts that it probably creates a lot of stress to think about it. Nonetheless I don't feel like I'm on track with my business if I'm not reviewing the books every couple of days or planning how the money will be used to grow the business.

@Joel Pinto Hello Joel.
I agree that there is a difference between following the wrong and your dream, though qualifying what a wrong dream is can take some work if its the one you are following. Certainly it did for me, but the work has paid and continues to.

@MikeDriggers The point is that choosing to do things your own way is a tradeoff in some way. It' not bad, but being informed about what you are trading off is important so that you can make effective choices.

@attorney I'm glad this post was so helpful for you. Are you looking for help with your business?

@desgray I agree with you. The problems we encounter are, at the very least, defined by our own limited perception, and often are self-inflicted. Mastering your self can lead to greater creativity. Internal work is a necessity for that mastery, which is why I advocate doing some type of meditation.

@Vickilind1 Yes it is. Fortunately its a skill that can be cultivated.

@RedheadWriting Your Welcome! It's a really good book! I'm taking my time with it, but already I've been trying some of the ideas out and I'm noticing more interaction as a result via the social networks (have to wait until next week for the in-person networks). I'll definitely be writing more about it and also doing a review of it on here and amazon. Being an author myself, I know how important those reviews can be!

@GaryPowell I saw your reply, but for whatever reason it didn't show up on here. In regards to your response my response would be that each process is customized to the client, so the initial step would really be about discovering what, if anything, in your business needs work or needs to be addressed, and then developing a process around those areas that need work.

@GaryPowell That's a good point Gary, but when you have a person attend multiple free classes that you offer, obviously you've made enough of an impression that they get something valuable from the classes and want to get more information.
@guynirpaz Good points. I agree that customer success is pro-active and creates that customer experience that ideally leads to life time customers. It definitely is win-win.

Andrew@AdviceTheory.com Good point Andrew. I agree with you that sometimes you've got to take a risk and work through the resistance around that risk. In fact, my choice to rebrand my business is a risk that had a lot of resistance around it, but now that I've faced it, I'm moving ahead and seeing what happens.
1 year, 3 months ago on The role of Resistance in your Business
Businesses are afraid to be transparent because of how out of touch they may be with their market. If their market is unhappy with them and they are transparent, the thought that probably runs their heads is that they'll lose a lot of business. So they worry more about the loss of income, than understanding that relationships based on trust are what ensure that a business will actually continue to get money from the market.

RussellMickler I'm looking forward to seeing how I can use a smart phone to save money and time. I think it will be a good investment.

RussellMickler Thanks. It's something I think needs to be said sometimes.
