Just Start

 

STARTWhat happens if you decide not to “Start Now?” Which of the three if not all three of the following is stopping you from Starting…FEAR…PAIN…DOUBT? If you don’t start somewhere…sometime…then you won’t do or achieve anything that you want to do and achieve!

There are a lot of individuals waiting on you to start, because they’re in desperate need to hear what you have to say and have what you have to offer in order to become the best that they can become. YOUR voice just might be the voice they need to hear from because you can reach them on the level they need to reached. BUT if you don’t at least “Start” then you’ll never know how far you can go, how many lives you can/will change, and/or what a major success you can/will become.

This is one of the many reasons why having an Accountability Partner is important to have in your entrepreneurial life whether you’re sitting on the sidelines trying to figured out where to start, have already started and now stuck, or you feel like you’ve gone as far as you feel you can go and no one wants to hear what you have to say.

If any of the above is where you are including not have started yet, then you want to be on the Accountability teleseminar call with myself the Accountability Queen to Entrepreneur Women and Bonnie Pond the Bahooda Kicker for Women who want more out of Life as we discuss “End Your Business Struggles with Accountability” on this Thursday at 12pm CST by clicking the following link – http://join.freeconferencecall.com/881-718-971.

What Type of Communicator are You?


SportsCenter – Henrik Lundqvist YouTube Video

– The above video is funny and I laugh every time I see it, but what’s not funny is if this is the way you sound to your clients.

As entrepreneurs our messages need to be clear and as on target as they can be. Because, this is how we build our client base.

Understand if your clients cannot understand you then your message will not be well received nor will they have clear directions on what you can provide for them or the action(s) it is you desire for them to take.
