What does a 2mm shift look like?

2mm shift

How to just do a bit more than you competition

Some people think that they need some amazing level of effort to make a difference in their business and most don’t even realize that growth is probably closer than you think.

Maybe even as close as 2mm away.

You see if you make a 2mm shift in just 2 or 3 areas of your business, finance, outreach or operations and you do it for 30 days the math changes.

It really changes!

Sending a handwritten card to you old business contacts (not even clients!)

Sending a text to see how they are doing.

Reaching out to an old colleague on LinkedIn

Volunteering for something you are passionate about.

It’s all about that 2mm shift – or sometimes I like to call it the bear analogy.

You don’t to run very fast.

Just faster than your competitor next to you and chances are he’s sitting around waiting for his phone to ring.

Sound like you? If so please reach out to me and I would love to hear from you.

Do you Spray & Pray?

I am shamelessly stealing this post – from my wife Pam

Pam & I have been working on a new program for Interior Designers called “In Demand Designer” and 2 months ago it was about taking your business from the Basement to the Penthouse. But as we know that all changed, dramatically.

Now it’s a lifeboat program and we’ve changed the focus on how to change dramatically how you attract new clients and new referral sources. It’s all about focusing on just one thing and letting the results rule your decisions and not your emotions.

It’s tactical and relevant – just this morning she posted this and shared it to her list (which we’ve built entirely on LinkedIn!) and to her followers on LinkedIn. It’s just too good and I had to share.

 

Hey Bryan,

When it comes to getting your name out there are you just trying a million different places and techniques to see what will stick?

I call this the Spray and Pray approach, you’re just hoping your ideal customer is there at the exact time with money in hand, just waiting to hire you. Let me just say, the odds are not in your favor and you are expending a lot of energy with little to no return.

I’m a big fan of using your precious time in ways that have the best return on investment. That includes being mindful of where your rock star client is hanging out and what is going on in their mind. When you focus and have clarity, your results skyrocket.

I’m not in the business to pressure you to join something you are not interested in. If we chat and it’s not for you, no worries. But, you won’t know till you get those questions answered.

​Yours in Elevated! Success,

Pam

How to use LinkedIn to reach those you want…

How to use LinkedIn to reach those you want…

I was fortunate enough to be interviewed by Startup Mentor & CEO Raj Jaipul. Raj’s mission is to help Entrepreneurs to get from thought to traction. His Youtube Channel – One Million Minds helps developing entrepreneurs do more by doing and not thinking about it. With today’s unprecedented access to executives and decision makers you can use tools like LinkedIn to be as effective as you can.

Be Warned! Automation & SPAM is HIGHLY frowned on upon and yes, I’ll share how to work around that so you can think more about how to provide value rather than just how to sell them something. Chances are if they are a buyer they will buy on THEIR timeline and not YOUR timeline.

I share 3 Solid ways to use LinkedIn (and not be a spammy rat!) and you can check it out here on Youtube!

Are you really “Doing your VERY best?”

Are you really “Doing your VERY best?”

Some days it’s just great to hear about those who really want to do their best and actually put the work in. Shared this today and thought you would appreciate when you BLINDLY put for all of the effort that’s required to get something done. Nor pretending to get something done, making excuses for not getting something done, but actually getting something done.

It’s just about 5 mins and this video has made my day MANY times – I hope it makes yours.
