Trust Your Sixth Sense

Posted by chucktrautman on October 15, 2020

Have you ever had a great idea or opportunity to grow your business, but through all your desire and excitement to push forward and make it happen, some small feeling was tugging at you giving you pause? That is your sixth sense. Don’t ignore it!

I Build It. I Nurture It. I Profit.

I build it. I nurture it. I Profit.” I love this mantra because it addresses so many things entrepreneurial. It starts with ‘acting’ on an idea and taking a ‘risk’ by starting a business. It is then through the relentless ‘nurturing’ of your clients and prospects that you profit. Many have ideas; but few act, risk, and invest the time to nurture. The entrepreneurs that do will generally profit.

Don’t Become a Commodity

Posted by chucktrautman on September 17, 2020

When you’re a commodity, the only way to get clients to buy from you is to offer the lowest price, and that does two really negative things. First, obviously, it cuts into your profit margin. Every time you lower your price, you lose valuable margin. But what’s even worse, the second negativethe customers you gain by winning on price have no loyalty. As soon as they find what you offer for a lower price, they’re “outta there.” The name of the game to boost your profits and really grow your business is customer retention, and you’ll never score customer retention when you’re a commodity . . . when you’re like all the other apples.

Mindset Success Strategy

Focus on things that will help you to create wealth. Ask yourself, “What am I going to do to move my business forward? How am I going to add ten new clients this month?” Then continue on with your day and let your subconscious do its thing. When ideas hit, write them down. See which ones work for you, then run with them.

Success Strategy: Have Integrity With Yourself.

To create wealth you must have integrity with yourself. Be on guard against being manipulated by emotion, fear, and drama. If you schedule time to exercise, to complete your newsletter article, or to be creative and think of ways you’re going to grow your business, then keep that appointment with yourself just like you would keep an appointment with an important client.
