5 Ways of Doing Business is like the movie industry in some ways.

Let’s see if you can guess the key word before you get to the end of the post.

1. An actor goes to Hollywood or New York to get _________________________.  They do bit parts and hope someone will ___________________ them.

In Business, we have a really good idea and sometimes we need to be __________________.  We might need sponsorship.

                                                  You might need sponsorship!

We hope to make that strategic alliance with a great up-line, a great business builder in our down-line, a great patent that the world needs, write that book that sets the world on fire or something that gets you on the path to not giving up because you have struck gold…the first time.

But just as an actor/actress must constantly hone their craft, take acting classes, they don’t all give up in the first year of hoping to be ______________________.

2. An actor/actress will continue to try out for certain parts.  They may stay in a certain niche such as t.v., movies or even off Broadway plays.

What is your niche?  Network Marketing or MLM (Multi Level marketing), store front business, products, services, customer base on the young, elderly or middle age persons?  Persons of color, all human races, people who own pets, people with children at home, or daycare providers?

When you know your audience, you bring your attention to that people group.  You will blog to that people group.  You will attend meetings with people already serving that niche,

a) to make contacts,

b) get ideas for your business

c) to collaborate on ideas

d) and find sponsorship for your business.

Some people do not want to do what you are doing and would be happy to know you are doing it.  They could hire you as an independent contractor to help them.  This why networking in the broadest sense is a good idea.  It increases your chances to get ____________________________.

                                                    What is your niche?

3.  As actors grow in their craft, they may find that they like writing.  They are already in the field and now they will try their hand at writing scripts, for instance.

In business, as we go along trying out different ideas such as an actor/actress does writing, producing, or directing, we can see what sticks with us.

I have tried different CRM programs to keep up with prospecting future clients and downline.  I have listened to countless audio books and webinars online and on DVD.  I have added many tips to my business activities based on suggestions.   I have found that I like blogging and I love networking in groups and one to one.  I love getting ready for a meeting, getting my business cards ready, designing my name tag, posting on social media and getting up to date on the latest product that I am promoting.

Mostly, my current aim is to be before people, one to one, having a conversation.

     Having a Conversation: One to One!

Some people prefer to have a huge online presence reaching thousands and millions.  And while that is great for some, others might feel their calling is standing on the stage before audiences doing public speaking.  Others might prefer door to door throughout the week, setting appointments.  Still others prefer to be the secretary to the one already making a name for themselves, being behind the scenes.  But we all can’t be behind the scene.

What brings you the most thrill?  What can you get to do that really lights you up the most?

                           What Lights You Up The Most?

When you have had your fill, what do you do to relax afterwards, to bring things back in focus, to bring you back to “normal” for your family and friends?

4. Actors persevere through the rough times, through the rejection letters, through the unopened doors, as they continue to hone their craft and eventually teach others what they have learned.

In Business, who are you reaching out to and what great self talk do you have to get over your rejection letter or rejection phone call or meeting?  How do you realize they are not always rejecting you as a person but maybe the product or the timing?  Sometimes you have to wait and in six months the turnover in that company might allow you to speak to someone else om that department.

In business, when approaching individuals, let’s say for network marketing, go to the next person on your list, the next future client or prospect.  They say, it is all about numbers in business.  And a “No” does not always mean “no” but maybe later.

Use wisdom and move their name to your six month followup sheet.  Eric Worre teaches this in his networking videos on Youtube.

                          Return to the “No” prospect in 6 months

5. Actors have dreams and goals.  Do they aspire to have their own production company, a Wikipedia page or a star on Hollywood Blvd?  It could be any number of things.  And I would like to think that in their goals and dreams, they want to help and give back somewhere or to a specific people group.

What is your why for doing business?  In doing life?  What do you hope to achieve in your career or in your lifetime?  Who do you hope to benefit as you grow or after you have reached a certain level of success?

Remember, do not wait until are rich to write out your hopes and dreams.  Don’t wait until you hit it big, whatever that looks like to you, before you give back.  You can volunteer now at your local charity before you can write that large check for a donation.  You can donate food, clothes and any number of things to your favorite type of charity.

They say the odds of people giving back when they hit it big are smaller for people not already giving back in their current situation.

Be a giver now!!!   Don’t wait.

Give back even at a young age.

Your favorite charity will be happy with the donation or gift of time in volunteering now before you hit it big.  Many small acts of kindness get much accomplished!

Writing out your dreams, aspirations, and goals gives you something concrete to work on.  It serves as a reminder for what you were thinking about when you look back on the list and you see your dreams and goals possibly changing or being revised.  As you grow, mature, learn and are exposed to so many people and things, your ideas of what you want may change.

As you learn more about the people group you want to give back to, you might refine and define more of who, where and how you want to give back.

In business, keep your options open and be willing to change if it is for the better.  Your direction may change.  Your dreams and goals may change as you continue to hone your craft and meet new people.

I once wanted to be a music conductor of a large choir and full piece orchestra.  I have since changed my dreams to wanting to see many people healed.  And I now look for opportunities in the new area of ministry.

One bit of warning is to not follow every lead down a rabbit hole.  That might now be your path.  You have to be discerning.  Do some investigation and check in with yourself to see how you really feel about it.  See if that path lines up with your overall goals or is it a detour or distraction taking you off course.

I have tried many things, many tactics, many venues.  But at last, only a  couple of them lasted through the test of time, hard work and trying harder.  🙂  The things that stuck for me more perfectly lined up with my personality, wants, needs, dreams and goals.

I was willing to try different types of businesses and it forced me to recognize what I like.  For instance, I prefer sharing with others about services than actual products that can be bought off a shelf.  I prefer speaking one to one than a huge numbers of people at one time.  I have had a number of opportunities to speak publicly and I don’t turn them down.  I just like the conversational format that comes with a one to one meetings.

I have also found that I like short term assignments with an approximate begin and end date versus it going on potentially forever with no end in sight short of my quitting.  And I am not a quitter.  At least I strive to not give up.   So having a time line works well for me as my motto is, “I work well with my calendar.”

I have found that sometimes, I just have to encourage myself and not look for others to always be rallying behind me or beside me to spur me on to good works, to not give up.    For me books, CD’s and functions are good motivators when my supporters are a little quiet at the moment.

I would love to chat with you about your journey.  If you know a single parent, I offer Consulting for Single Parents, helping them to get to their next level.  If you are or know a Small Business Owner, I offer prayer for businesses through Chaplains for Businesses, praying with them for their next business strategy, upcoming event or decision and any current crisis that might be happening.

I hope you have benefited from this article and the key word is discover, discovered or discovering.  You probably figured that out right away.

DISCOVER what works for you now and as you grow and develop in your life and business, remembering your dreams and goals as you go along your way.

3 Tip To Save Face When Others Have Done You Wrong

When I was newly divorced, I was so hurt.  I had a hard time not reliving the story as I felt it.  I was still in pain.  I had not healed.  

If you are business owner, a family member, a church goer, etc, this could apply to you.  I will tell you briefly what I learned because of my pain as a newly divorced, single mom of two babies in diapers, a year apart in age.  

While feeling the pain, it was all I could do to not retell the story in emotions, as though it had just happened minutes before the retelling.  It was all I could do to not call the person who hurt me every ugly name in the book.  After all, they had called me all those names and accused me of unthinkable things.  I felt justified in what I was feeling.

And then…the wondering mind.  I was constantly wondering how they were doing the things I heard especially when it came to spending money as I suffered along as a single mom of two babies in diaper.  And sometimes with no car.

Feel sorry for me?  

Don’t!  God is a good provider and I had to learn that.    

I am retelling my story in book form of how I got out of the Poverty mindset to seeing money and possessions as God sees them.  I am retelling my story as I now have more of the mind of Christ and I am ever learning about money, finances, savings, investments and possessions.  The book is due to be published October 2019.

The person I just described in the first few sentences may sound like someone you have dealt with or you after being hurt.  It may sound like a bitter and unforgiving person.  

So here is the lesson the Lord taught me even before he started renewing my mind about money.  He gave me three tips that helped me to save face after being done wrong.  

1.  I can tell my story but I need to tell it without all the emotions of what happened as though it just happened a few minutes ago. After a couple of years, it is no longer a few minutes ago.  I had to learn how to forgive…daily.   This person was constantly harassing me for at least two years.  I needed to tell the story as a matter of fact…that’s how I did it to obey God’s commandment to my spirit.  I stuck to the facts and stayed out of the emotions.  This also helped me when raising my girls because I was not all mad at their dad and rehashing things angrily to them or in front of them.  

If you want Prayer, contact me here.

 

2.  I had to learn how to watch my tongue when talking about this person.  This person had at one time given their life to the LORD.  For me to bad mouth them was touching God’s Anointed and God tells us not to do that in 1 Chronicles 16:22.   I learned not to name call them regardless of the emotions and pain I might have been feeling…not just from two years ago when he left, but the hour ago when I was harassed.  I worked hard at not letting any unwholesome words come out of my mouth in regards to this individual.  

If you are a single mom needing a little mentoring, contact me here.

3. I had to learn how to quit trying to figure out this person.  I had to quit trying to see how I could get revenge and/or one up this person.  And I learned real quickly that to try to think like someone acting crazy might make you crazy.  Or to think in an evil way like someone who has hurt you might make you lean towards acting evil.  So I quit trying to figure them out.  I had to leave it alone which meant no more speculating on their reasons for doing what they did or wondering how they were surviving when I felt like I was barely surviving.  The bible tells us it is not wise to compare ourselves among ourselves 2 Corinthians 10:12.  I had to learn how to be content and accept that for this time and place in life, this is the will of the LORD for my life.  

Repeat after me: I choose to succeed! http://choose-to-succeed.org/go/choose-succeed-referral-marketing/

Does it mean that it is final?  Probably not.  Since I received this message of the 3 tips to help me when folks get to acting up, I have lived in a few other states, had a number of cars, my kids are all grown and I’ve learned a myriad of new things and new ways to do relationships that are much healthier.  And I have lots of friends now and enjoy my life, for the most part.  

The harassment stopped eventually and I was able to move on. Here’s another tip:  If you don’t let the bitterness go, it follows you.  No matter what city you live in, which car you drive and even if the kids are grown.  The bitterness and discontent with follow you.  

So take a tip from a woman who survived an awful time and raised two girls alone in the home, though the community was there, sometimes and God was always there.     So I’ll say it again, when they get to “acting a fool”, these three tips may save you.  

If you have more tips, I would love to hear them.  Respond to this post or contact me via the landing page and pass it on to that person needing a little bit of encouragement no matter their walk of life.  Evil does not discriminate.  

Have a good day, everyone.  And thanks for stopping by.  I hope to hear from you real soon!

“This is an uncomfortable thought to many Christian business people, who have been lead to believe that prayer has no place in the business world. That idea may simplify their positions and absolve them, at least in their minds, of responsibility. However, there is no support for it in Scripture, nor in the practices of successful contemporary Biblical businesses. Both of those sources overwhelming support the case for an active, intentional and disciplined approach to prayer in business.”  This is from http://davekahle.com/wordpressblogs/  The original link seems to be broken.

Let me know if you are ready to invite God into your business through prayer and His guidance.  If he gave you the business, then surely, He wants to bless it as well. Invite God in.  You will probably be surprised at how much better things can go for you and your business after inviting Him in.
