Of recent, I have been meeting and consulting with small business owners. I am noticing a trend. If your business isn't giving you more time and customers aren't walking in the door spending more money, something needs to change.
Wouldn't you agree?
People in my age category and older are still doing business as they did 10 years ago or even longer!
There is a new way to do business. It is vital that the traditional storefront business embraces the online world and that the online businesses learn how to build a business with offline basics.
Doing business in today's world requires polarization. You must define and focus on a specific market. Find a way to stand out from the others in your industry. Uncover ways to give you more time with simple leveraging solutions.
When you are open to change, the change will come. You can have more time and more money.
It's time for you to refresh, reinvent and revitalize your business.
As the famous saying goes, "If you keep doing what you are doing and you expect a different result, that is the definition of insanity."
For some of the reasons above, I am excited to announce my own revitalization, refreshing and re-invention. In another month we are rolling out with a new brand and defined focus. It will help business owners really take centre stage in their community so they can live the lifestyle of their dreams.
To Doing Business The New Way,

In today's world you can start your own business while maintaining your career.In matter of fact, I highly recommend you keep your job or your corporate position until you match your income. You can start your own business without spending daunting hours after long work days. Having a strong mentor and coach who helps you to laser focus, you can get much accomplished in a shorter period of time. Technology and other creative solutions such as interns, students, and virtual assistants can only expedite your journey as well. Your coach and mentor is able to hold your vision for you and guide you along so that each week and every quarter you see results. To start, I recommend working in 90 day increments. Most people can make a commitment for just about anything for 90 days. This allows you to take a step forward. If you don't start, what will change? Work with someone who not only understands what you want to accomplish but can really help guide you. There are consultants and coaches for specific niches such as lifestyle, health, relationship and business.

Passion is the main secret between people who spring out of bed in the morning ready to take on the day and those who just simply trudge through the responsibilities of life. My friend, Lora Colautti, once shared a powerful term with me - Passion Plan.
The Passion Plan is a step by step guide to discovering and developing your personal passion. Most people are not lucky enough to get to live their dreams and passion. Instead, they work a 40 hour a week job pay their bills and just get by. It doesn’t have to be that way. Many times discovering your passion is the best way to start a profitable business.
In order to find your passion you have to search deep inside your soul. Start by asking yourself questions such as “If I could do anything what would it be?” Or “If I could spend each day doing something, what would it be?” And "If money were no object, the bills were being paid, and my house was paid for, what would I be doing every day?"
Answering these questions is the first step to devising your own Passion Plan. Devising your own passion plan is the first step to finding personal and professional happiness. People who are happy do things better and with more confidence, which always equates to more success. More success breeds more happiness so it becomes a positive circle that your life is wrapped up in.
Start to find your passion and see how it can equate into profits for you. When you are doing something you love it never feels like you work a day in your life. The first step to becoming that kind of person is to identify your passion and put a plan into place to start making it a part of your everyday life. In the coming days, I'll be sharing an incredible offer with you that will help you discover your passion and your purpose. Stay tuned...there's more to come soon!
Are you an entrepreneur? Do you have the same challenge that Sir Richard Branson and I have?
It's called A.D.O.S.!
You see, some people may have A.D.D. / Attention Deficit Disorder but I like to call ours something
a little different:
A.D.O.S., Attention Deficit...OH SHINY!
I was on a training call back in June. The guest speaker talked about this challenge. I wish I could remember his name,as I love to give credit where it is due. He talked about entrepreneurs always wanting to go to the next 'shiny' object.
We always see opportunity and our creativity can always find fun solutions in what others may see as difficult.
A.D.O.S. is the acronym for Attention Deficit OH SHINY!! You know how it is, you start here and then you go there. You
sometimes become overwhelmed because, you, as the visionary know it's all possible. How do you overcome this?
Well, Sir Richard Branson, is smart. He has the vision and then he puts together the team who can actually get it done.
He is the starter. He knows what he is good at and he knows how to delegate to people smarter than him!
Who is on your team? Do you have a team? Who is the first person you can put into place to start finishing the dream you have created.
Here's to all the A.D. OH SHINY! people out there. Embrace it! Recognize that it is o.k., however, start implementing your team
to help you get it done.
