Creating an Effective Business Plan – A 4-Part Series Radio Show

I am so excited about our upcoming 4-part series on creating an effective business plan.  Wednesday, November 26th, I will be hosting Part 1 of a 4-part series on Diva Talk Radio.

One of the best things that you can do for yourself, prior to starting a business, is to sit down and write your business plan.  However, if you’re already in business, it’s not to late to plan for the future of your business.

A business plan will help you gain focus and think through each aspect of your business. It will also help you remain focused when you get discouraged or feel overwhelmed. You can figure out how to deal with possible problems before they occur.

I have put together an Action Guide for you to use during our talk show.  At the end of the four weeks, you will have completed an entire business plan that you can start to utilize immediately. Be sure to sign up for the Action Guide by going to  Once you sign up, we’ll email to you the first part of the Action Guide.

So join us as we explore and create an effective road map to your business’ success.  We’ll see you Wednesday!

Until next time…wear your heels well!

Get Your Game-face On!

I’m sitting at the football field watching my son practice for his next game (actually I’m doing more “parent” watching than anything).  He’s one of the bigger boys on his team…solid as a rock.  With his long blond hair flowing under his helmet, I just grin in admiration because he’s so darn cute in his uniform.  When he’s on the field, he’s totally into the game.  When he is told to tackle, he’s determined to take down his opponent.  When told to run the ball, he does it with such force and without hesitation.  He completely has on his game-face when on the field. 

As business owners, that’s how we need to approach our business.  When working on a project, we are to stay focused and determined.  When talking with a client, we are to have our game-face on.  There is nothing more discouraging to a client then to be given excuses of why a project has not been completed on time.  If you know in advance that you will not meet your deadline, you owe it to your client to be upfront and honest with him/her.  Just like my son owes it to his teammates to be totally in the game, you owe it to your client to be completely and 100% into his/her project.  The client isn’t interested in the piles of laundry that you have yet to get done or that your dog has diarrhea.  Keep your game-face on and stay on task. Having a personal business relationship with your client is a wonderful thing to have.  Get to know your client.  What are their favorite foods, favorite color, any kids, school alumni, etc.  By knowing this information, it allows for a great working relationship and a fantastic marketing tool to boot.  However, know more about your client personally than he or she knows personal about you.  Remember it is not about YOU, it is all about your client.

So, I’d like to know what you do to stay focused and on task for your clients.  How do you keep your clients updated on the progress of their projects?  How and when do you stay in touch with your clients?  You’re comments will assist other work-at-home business owners succeed in their businesses.  Thank you in advance for your willingness to help others succeed.  Pay it forward, so to speak!

Until next time…wear your heels well!
