“Before everything else, getting ready is the secret to success.” Henry Ford
So let me start off by saying that I love to read! But the truth is I like to read trash!! Lol I need to escape, But read for entertainment, or to be inspired.
since I’ve started this business I realized that I need to read , to gain knowledge! What a great concept right ?!
The truth is I find reading how to sell ,how to talk to people , how to make your business grow ;books.. Dare I say it ..they are boring.
If I can find it on audio, or I can listen to a podcast to learn the same information or attend a seminar that would be the route I would go.
But y’all I’m here to tell you I picked up a book! And I think it goes really hand-in-hand with giving practical information on how I make this whole Intention + Action = Progress (MAGIC ) , work .
The book it’s called Book yourself solid by Michael Port , I think it’s an oldie but it may be a goodie.
And let me tell you I just didn’t get the regular book ..yes this girl went and got the illustrated version because pictures always make things so much better! Lol.
My thinking was , let’s make this information I want to learn ! I really felt that learning this subject in a Fun and different way would probably serve me well, anyone else like me ??? No just me ? 🤷🏽♀️
So it’s got great content . Broken up into four different modules : It covers your foundation, building trust and capability, perfect pricing and simple selling, & the 6 core self promotion strategies (this is the one I struggle with the most) .
The long and short of it is the book has been interesting and the information has been digestible. Now it’s just up to me to implement this new tool.
See , I believe that each week I’m putting my best foot forward with the knowledge that I already have and the knowledge that I am acquiring.
Intentions have to be met with a plan, your actions have to be executed with a purpose, with knowledge, and with strategy or there will be little progress and you will may not see any magic!
HAPPY MONDAY Y’ALL !
