Why I am reading: To make the most of my marketing

 

Which quote: “How do you determine what are the best success ingredients are for you at this time?  What would make the biggest difference?  Examine the excuses you make over and over again.” by Grace Durfee http://www.balancewithgrace.com

 

How this quote adjusted my thinking:     

Before starting the Get Clients Now program, I would make decisions because I thought I had to.  Now, I ask myself how does this decision effect my business?  Is this decision going to help grow my business today?  When faced with a decision I do not want to make, I write down the excuses I am making.  Listening to myself, I found I make a lot more excuses that hinder my growth.

* I don’t want to define the description of my services because I do not know what to say.

* I don’t want to define the description of my services because I do not have anything to offer.

* Other people do what I do and they do it better.

* Other people do what I do and they make more money at it.

* I have a market niche but they cannot afford my services.

* I am do not want to search for sources for leads because they might tell me they don’t want my services.

…and the list goes on and on…
