The Chicken or Egg Theory Applied to Experts

Do you like to watch shows on TV where an expert teaches you how to flip older homes, bake the perfect cake or any other such topic? Do you have one or more experts that you like to watch?

 

If so, and most of us do, I have a really important question to ask you: Before you started watching the show with your favorite expert, had you ever heard of them?

 

Chances are very low that you’d heard of your expert before watching them on TV. So what made them the expert? It’s simple really. It’s the TV show itself that made them the expert!

Contrary to what you may have thought, these people are not on TV because they are the experts. In fact they are the experts BECAUSE they are on TV.

 

So how do you leverage this information? You get in front of people. On television, speaking live or any way you can. The larger your audience the better. Some groups and meeting organizers allow people to pay for a slot on their show. Consider making this purchase.

 

Just get out there and get in front of people. Let others call you the expert and smile to yourself. They are the ones building your reputation as the expert… which of course you are!

Are you Scurry or Sniff or Hem or Haw?

Change happens.  The weather changes.  The seasons change.  Fashions change.  Benjamin Franklin said, “Nothing is sure but death and taxes.”  He could have added change to that list.  Change, like all things, is neither good nor bad.  It only holds the meaning that we ascribe to that change.  If you hate rain, you will probably still pray for it during a drought.  Personally, I am still praying that leisure suits and mullets never, ever, ever ever, EVER come back in style.

 

 

So how do handle change?  Do you embrace it or resist it?  Do you look for it or hide from it?  Are you Scurry or Sniff or Hem or Haw?

Entrepreneurs vs. Small Business Owners – Which are you?

OK, there’s a fair bit of overlap between the worlds of the entrepreneur and the small business owner.  In fact. some people use the words interchangeably, putting whichever into their writing that sounds the best.  Despite the overlap and definitely contrary to those who see them as the same, there are several significant differences between the two.  Knowing the difference and knowing which you are are critical to you developing a success strategy that both succeeds and takes you the fulfilling future you envision.

Have a watch and see for yourself.

 

So… which are you?  Have you developed a plan for yourself that takes best advantage of your default position as an entrepreneur or small business owner?  Let NEWBI help you to reach your success if you haven’t!  How about leaving some comments on this topic for the rest of us too!

Are you an entrepreneur or a small business owner?

It’s a small question really, but it can have a huge impact.  Knowing the answer to this question can take a LOT of time of your journey to success.  Have a watch and see how.

 

 

See what I mean?  Which are you?  What decisions have you made that resulted from knowing this?  Which decisions would you have made differently if only you’d known this back then??

Golden Moments

Sometimes, sad events casue us to have moments of clarity on things we usually take for granted.  That’s what has happened to me.

Have you recently had cause to stop and reflect?  What did you learn, or what did you remember?

Adjusting to a new way of life…

Okay, okay, I know that I normally post a video Minute for Motivation but I am sitting here in my pajamas with no make-up and bedhead… not a pretty sight but I am inspired.  One of my Facebook friends posted a quote this morning and it sent me on a search.  I’ll get to the results in a moment.  What I really wanted to ask is:  once you hit a big goal or have a huge life event, what happens next?  Do you push to the next goal?  Do you go into a cave to hibernate and regenerate?  Do you wander around in wonder of what is next?

I am at the point where I have the nebulous dreams and goals for the next chapter.  I know the why, sort of.  I know the what, sort of.  I am patiently, sort of, allowing the Universe to work its magic. I have spent some time in my cave.  Now, I am wandering around in wonder.  There are so many possibilities and so many possible choices.

The quote was:

Instead of saying “I don’t have time” try saying “it’s not a priority,” and see how that feels. Often, that’s a perfectly adequate explanation. I have time to iron my sheets, I just don’t want to. But other things are harder. Try it: “I’m not going to edit your résumé, sweetie, because it’s not a priority.” “I don’t go to the doctor because my health is not a priority.” If these phrases don’t sit well, that’s the point. Changing our language reminds us that time is a choice. If we don’t like how we’re spending an hour, we can choose differently.

Here is the link to the original article:  http://www.wsj.com/articles/SB10001424052970203358704577237603853394654

So what does this have to do with motivation?  My challenge in this next chapter of my life is to not get so busy being busy that I don’t have the space for the right opportunities when they appear.  This quote is a great reminder of my values.  Who is my priority?  What is my priority?  Does it show in my actions?  Even more important, does it show in my results?

I ask these questions of myself but I hope you are asking yourself the same questions.  Are you getting the results that you want?  Would you like help?  Please let me know.  I’d love to hear from you and I’d love to help.

All the best today and every day!

Should I go away?

Last week I blogged about mixing up your routine to shake up your business and life.  This week, I’m riffing on the same theme, but I’m going LARGE!

I would love to head somewhere warm and tropical to get my head back in the game.  Where would you go?
