TribeologyBlog.com – Episode #906 – Why is November 17 important?

Monday Topic: Credibility —

Quote: “Start by doing what’s necessary; then what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible”

 

I was reading a blog post the other day about, “How to Become a Millionaire in 5 Years or Less.”

The title intrigued me.  And to my surprise it did not say “win the lottery” – so what did it say?

It was surprising that it didn’t say the traditional “start a business”, “save money”, etc.  That is what I expected.

What the article focused on were things such as, find a good mentor, create a vision of wealth, find clarity, focus on results instead of habits…but the one thing that caught my attention causing me to read the entire article, a couple times was…

Develop a 90 day process to measure the past and multiply the future.  This is very interesting.  I like to goal set/achieve… but the future pace is quite a concept.

Start by looking over the past quarter at your “wins” – what are the big accomplishments?  Once you establish this, HOW did they come together?

For example, if you had an increase in income… HOW did it happen…. meaning what widget sold and then HOW did you sell it?  Were you making more offers…

This may seem elementary but the goal to a million in the article mindset was to then take that previous success, focus on it and do it again.  Seems simple, right?

Why is this important? Because today is our credibility topic and your success and understanding of how you achieve that success will project into all of your areas of business, from a simple conversation with a customer to a blog post you write.

So today, even though it’s not the end of the quarter, review the last 90 days.  Go back to November 17… yep, just before Thanksgiving and write down the answers to the following…

1- What went well for you?
2- What would you identify as the top three wins?
3- What are the take-aways from the wins?
4- What in the last 90 days made you super happy?
5- Where do you need to simply STOP and do something else?

If you want to post in the comments, let’s hear it.  If you’re more comfortable writing your list on your own… that’s great too. But please do this exercise!  If you keep doing the same thing as yesterday, you’ll get yesterday today… but maybe if you target #2, #3 and #5 today you’ll get powerful results. 

It’s worth a try, right?!?!

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 903 – Do You Want to Learn a New Skill for Marketing?

Thursday: Infinity Customer

Quote:  Better to be a nerd than one of the herd!

Nerd Alert!  It’s time to jump in and lead your tribe.

What’s so nerdy about that?

Well… Leading a tribe means you have a tribe that follows you, not just customer but a tribe.

It’s easy to find customers.  Seriously, when you place an ad you are actually buying them.  You’re paying to find them… think about it.

That means, if you are building a tribe you are not buying them. You are earning their trust with consistent content.  If you do not provide content, they’ll leave.

You cannot force them to stay!  If someone wants out of your tribe, they’ll leave.

This is what being a nerd is all about.  You are learning an entirely new skill for marketing.  Attracting customers that transform into a tribe that you regularly communicate with is new.

It’s an easy concept, but it’s far from easy to keep up the consistency – however, if you want to go from “one and done” to “Infinity” which means you quit buying your customers with advertising and start providing products the tribe wants to buy… well, it’s time to get your nerd on!

It’s time to stop doing what everyone else does and simply buy ads, and time to learn just how valuable it is to transform customer into a tribe!

That’s right…

Jump in there and lead your tribe.  Today – provide one great post with information they crave.  Think about what your core value is… the reason you are creating a tribe and write.  Now, go for it.

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 867 – The 10 Year Old On the Playground…

Wednesday: Midweek Motivation

 

Quote: “Every morning you have two options, continue to sleep with your dreams or wake up and chase them.”

 

Ya made it!  Another decade.

AHHHHH and I promised myself I wouldn’t write the “decade” thing… it’s been annoying me because it’s EVERYWHERE.

The end of a decade, yeppers…. and on to the next.

The only joy I got out of the deal was a snicker when I thought about my cousin who’s 6 months older than me and just turned 50… so as of today he’s experiencing his 7th decade while entering his 6th decade of life… as for me, the “young one” I’m experiencing my 6th decade while still living my 5th decade of life. Take that for making fun of me when we were 10 years old on the playground in elementary school!

But it’s also a day of, “what the heck comes next, right?”

A couple days ago I mentioned that I made my resolution of 2019 by FINALLY recording one actual on camera session.

Rolling eyes. It was easy. I really shouldn’t have put it off that long…

But what else, what’s next, what the heck.  That’s so much to process, right?

It’s quite simple.  Get up and go after the dreams you have.  Set things in motion today that by the end of the week will be a success.  Then next week repeat.  And next month repeat.  Just keep going.

Small. Baby. Steps.

And don’t even get me started on the wholy crap moment of the day.  You realize that it’s been 20 years since the Y2K… and that went super duper fast and that means 20 years have flown by and that means 2040 will be here really really soon… and I’ll be living my 7th decade… but my cousin will still be “one up” on me at experiencing his 9th decade.  (that my friends was another shot at that WHOLE 10 year old on the playground thing… believe me he deserves it).

Happy New Year!

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 855 – Self Discipline Needs Help, too.

Tribeology: Learn It. Do It. Profit.  Decide who you want to work with, attract them, and sell them things they want to buy!  It really is that simple.

Wednesday: Midweek Motivation

 

Quote:“When motivation stumbles, self-discipline saves the day.”

 

Some days are tougher than others to get out of bed…right?  🙂  We all have had that feeling.  But the alarm goes off and you need to get up and ready for the day.

The reason you get up is your self-discipline.

Alright… the reason is you need to get to work, your self-discipline is being honest with yourself and knowing you might not wake up naturally so you set an alarm.

Yesterday I wrote about the need for consistency in creating content for your tribe.  Well, just like my dog “bothers” me when it’s bed time… you need that thing to “bug” you, too.  Like the alarm to wake you up.

Your motivation will always wane.

Remember, setting the goal is EASY — the journey to achieving the goal is full of stumbles.  You must have self-discipline to save the day.

HOWEVER

Be ready to cheat.  Use Siri, set an alarm, get an accountability partner.  But recognize that self-discipline needs help too.

Tribeology: Learn It. Do It. Profit.  Decide who you want to work with, attract them, and sell them things they want to buy!  It really is that simple.

Wednesday: Midweek Motivation

 

Quote: “It’s never too late to become who you want to be.” F. Scott Fitzgerald

 

There are so many quotes you can look at that give words of inspiration to change your life… the when’s the 2nd best time to plant a tree… what you believe you achieve… all of these things imply

Change

If you do not like what the heck is going on, right now, you can change it.

AND

You don’t have to wait.

You can change right now… it doesn’t have to be the super duper large change, it can be the small altering of a habit.

The fun thing is, this “small altering of a habit” is the start that brings you on a journey to a new habit.

Something so simple as you want to run a marathon.  You can’t just decide to run a marathon and next day… woo hoo you did it.  But the moment you think, “I want to run a marathon” – take action, look up a video on tips, take action on the tips – what ever it might be, like joining a marathon group, getting a coach, running… just take action.

This is exactly what you need to do for ANY goal.

Take action, and do that action immediately.

So the only question left is, “Who do you want to be?”

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 847 – Why You Need to Celebrate You.

Tribeology: Learn It. Do It. Profit. Decide who you want to work with, attract them, and sell them things they want to buy! It really is that simple.

Monday: Subject Matter Expert

Quote: “There’s nothing more rewarding than standing back and seeing all the hard work pay off.”

Today.  Stop.  And appreciate what you’ve done.

I’m serious.

We’re in the middle of the 4th quarter crunch.  There’s time to make last minute gains and a push to the New Year.

But look back (at least for a quick moment)

This will help you in HUGE ways.  When you’re talking to customers, and by talking I mean writing an email or speaking in person… maybe I should say “communicating”.

When you are communicating with your customers, the confidence you have will give an automatic boost to your credibility.

But to gain that confidence you must stop and recognize all that you have done.

It’s so easy to say “yep I hit a sales goal” or “Yep, I won that award” but the goal or the award are the capstone of an entire journey.

My cousin opened a yoga studio, of her own.  I mean she actually bought her own building.  She’s been teaching yoga for almost a decade, so she has a following… but she took a leap, remodeled a building, hosts events, and has students that respect and pay her!

Last weekend she had a special event with a guest teacher and packed room.  I said, look at just how much you’ve accomplished to get to today.   All the training, practice, mentoring you’ve done.

It’s not that she opened a studio, but she’s changed lives.

She was busy focusing on the next thing coming up (class in two hours) but just like her… you need to stop and appreciate where you’re at, right now.

The credibility you share with your tribe is not just in the words you say, awards you’ve won, but it’s in your actual day to day actions.  Your actions right now are only possible from all the hard work you did to just before reading this!

Congratulations.

Now get back to work. 🙂

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 817 – Get Them To Realize You Have What They Want

Tribeology: Learn It. Do It. Profit. Decide who you want to work with, attract them, and sell them things they want to buy! It really is that simple.

Monday: Subject Matter Expert

Quote: Your attitude determines your outcome.

 

If you believe you can. You will.

If you believe you can’t. You won’t.

Now… how about your customers?  How do they know you will or won’t?  I mean the most important thing to your customers is NOT you… it’s them.

It’s the old “what’s in it for me” WIIFM — this means you must give them what they want!

So we’ve reached the obvious part of the blog.

Now the less obvious, how to get them to realize you have what they want… hummmmmmmmm

One hint, today is Subject Matter Expert day.  As such, the way to get them to realize you have what they want is to show them though your expertise.

Expertise, especially by another party, is a confidence builder.

Think about it.

When you make buying decisions doesn’t it help that the product is “product of the year” or that “it won best in show” or whatever.  It’s a winner.

To get to get them to REALIZE you have what they want… is best when you’re endorsed by a third party through awards!

People understand winners.

I mean, if you’re voted “best pancakes in town” or “5 star certified” – it means something, only my husband wonders how many other pancake emporiums were in the competition or if on a 5 star scale there happened to be a possible 15 stars… but that’s a topic for another day. 🙂

For now… attract your customers by winning awards.

PS: it’s fun, too!
