– Episode 591 – The Reason It’s Important to Have a “Voice and Stage”

Quote: “Never give up on your dream because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway”

Monday: Subject Matter Expert


Tic Tock… what’s that?  OH it’s time.

I love to hear people when they say, I don’t have time.   Especially when it has to do with strengthening their knowledge.  “I don’t have time to go to classes to learn X” and yet… they have time to complain.  OR better yet, in three years when they reap the benefit of taking the classes to learn X they will STILL have the time to complain.

It doesn’t make sense.

When you want your business to grow you need to market yourself.  We regularly go over this “why” behind this statement, so I’ll review it… we need to market ourselves because people want to do business with people.

Therefore, you need to put yourself out there.  There’s a funny thing that happens when you “put yourself out there” and that is that you automatically become a public presence.

Now… that doesn’t mean an expert.

Let’s look at Hollywood and politics.  I’m not going to use names but why on earth does anyone think that someone who stars in movies has any basis for political guidance.

I guess it doesn’t matter “why on earth” the fact is, they have a voice and they have a stage.  (I ripped that off from my favorite singer/songwriter Kenny Chesney which is pretty amazing because I really like Debbie Gibson, too. It was the 80s)  Back to the quote “voice and stage” – I heard an interview with Kenny Chesney speaking of the hurricanes that hit the islands.

He didn’t know what he could do to help, but he had a “voice and a stage” hummmmmm….

Kinda powerful.

Back to the lame-o stars and politics.  Oh boy, by nature of their work they also have a voice and stage.  They choose to use it for political purposes.

What the heck does this have to do with you and today’s inspiration?  The purpose of your business is to give you the ability to exist and thrive doing something you enjoy.  As such, what happens when that all disappears?

OH chrimmity, not in the morbid sense…  but maybe you’ll get bored.

Then what?

Let’s say you’ve sold Real Estate for 30 years… and you’re burned out.  That doesn’t make the knowledge disappear.  However, if you’ve positioned yourself as a Subject Matter Expert, with a blog and taken the TIME to continually invest in youself, you could “quit” selling homes and start consulting.  OR if you’re a teacher, doctor, sales person, there are so many possibilities for your “after” career


You need to start now.

Think of positioning yourself as your “spring board” to the next thing… continue to work at what you are doing, but utilize your TIME to invest in yourself so you can SPRING to the next possibility… because you never know when that could happen!

Episode #387 – Do This to Make the World an Exciting Place…

“If everything and everyone was the same the world would be a boring place.”


The internet is a reality because everyone has a different talent.  Think about it.  If everyone had the same skill set… then competition would be unnecessary.

You’d be self-sufficient.  You’d farm you own food, build your own car (and house), direct/produce/act/sing/and watch your own musical.  Now that’s a whole lot of talent! haha.

That’s why it’s necessary to have experts and why it’s necessary to be an expert.  As such, it’s necessary to seek out the “best fit” for the services or products you need.

ANNNNND that means the reverse, too!

You have some serious skills and talents, really you do!  If you didn’t you wouldn’t be reading my blog.  You’re reading this because you’re seeking to improve your marketing and believe that the Infinity Marketing Machine…rocks.  (well, I hope you think so) –

But, the outcome of improving your marketing means more people discover your product/service! When they discover your business… you want them to buy from you!  That means you need to position your business in the spotlight as the best option for your customer and part of that is building the confidence of your customers in YOU.

To build that confidence you want to position yourself as an expert… and when you’re an expert – you’re exciting and make the world an exciting place.

Ta Da!  Make the world an exciting place, position yourself as an expert.
