Marketing Madness

Its Thanksgiving (my favorite holiday of all time) in two days, so I'll be brief.

I got wind of a company today that slashed its marketing budget by 80%. Now that I've picked my jaw up off the floor, here's my recommendation to you: now is the time to spend more on marketing and do more networking than you have ever done before. In order to create business, clients and revenue, you must be more focused, more productive and more intentional than you have ever been before. If you don't have a plan, you don't have an abundance of cash, clients and connections, then spend 2-3 hours this very weekend getting yourself ready for 2009 by creating a clear vision and putting together a solid plan of action.

I've heard from more than one source that the formula for success is 98% inner preparation (creating a vision and plan) and 2% outer action (plan execution). Click here to download a complimentary copy of my 100 Day Plan. If you want help in making sure it gets done, I'm standing by ...

Happy Thanksgiving!

Productivity, 10 - Stress, 0

Have you ever noticed that the day before vacation is a day when your productivity is off the charts? Why aren't all of your work days that productive? I believe it comes down to three fundamental practices, that when observed daily, productivity will skyrocket. (Hint: productivity = $$). By skyrocket, I mean 300-500%.

You may also have noticed that the day before vacation, when you're getting everything done, you're stressed to maximum capacity. Most likely because you've procrastinated, but that's a discussion we'll have another time. *smile*

Fundamental Practice Action #1: Identify your highest revenue producing activities, then rank them in order of importance and urgency. Fundamental Practice Action #2: Schedule them on your calendar, preferably before you leave the office today for tomorrow. Fundamental Practice Action #3: Do them, while ignoring everything else* until your list is complete.

You won't feel the stress because you're prepared and intentional. You will feel intentional and quite proud of yourself as you make more progress in less time. You don't need to surf, text your BFF for the "latest", or engage in water-cooler conversation. You just don't - not if you want to work less and make more money.

What about emergencies? Don't worry, if there's a true emergency*, you can run but you can't hide. You'll be found and filled in on what's happening and your part in the solution.

Go forth and produce!
