All things business, by business owners for business owners
Ep #225 Odile Faludi - Cold Calling
The fastest way to get a business going is by simply picking up the phone. First, you leverage on your warm market. Your Power Base, the people that know you. After you have exhausted that then you need to throw the net much wider. Then you need to talk to other business owners that you may not know.
How is the best way to approach this?
Is there a process?
Should this be a daily, weekly, or monthly activity?
Does this come under effective business development?
It is a big topic so I think the above is enough to go with.
Odile Faludi is a cold calling expert but she hates the words, “cold calling.” Odile says, “It is all about Kick Starting a Client Conversation.” When you have the right mindset the dialogue flows differently.
Odile is trained in “Crucial Conversations” through Vitalsmarts. They have helped 300 of the Fortune 500 companies realise significant results using a proven method for driving rapid, sustainable, and measurable change in behaviours.

EP #223 Tameeka Leon - The importance of mindfulness and self-care in chasing your goals
Business owners, especially solo business owners working from home, tend to spend so much of their time working in their businesses that they don't stop to take care of their needs until it's too late. By being more intentional with how they spend their time to achieve their goals, and incorporating time specifically for self-care into their routine, they can lessen the chances of overwhelm and burnout. My method of planning focuses on ensuring clients are meeting their own needs by making time to take care of themselves and using mindfulness strategies to check in with themselves.
Tameeka Leon is a Confidence and Goal Success Coach and also the owner of the Coffee.Yoga.Life blog. She helps high-achieving women redefine what success means to them and create a realistic action plan to be more fulfilled in life and work. Coffee.Yoga.Life. was her answer to a personal time of getting stuck playing the comparison game and dealing with imposter syndrome in a way that she had never experienced before. Now, as a coach, her goal is to help women be happy with who they are, to better understand what makes them happy, and to take care of themselves for themselves. She believes it is ok to want something other than what you “should” want. It is ok to be ambitious and go after your goals. And it is ok to create the life of your dreams.

EP #222 Anwar Jumabhoy - Learn how to adopt the 9 Entrepreneurisms
YOU CAN GET REAL RESULTS FROM THE PEOPLE IN YOUR ORGANIZATION!
Does your company have a leadership team that is hesitant to act, afraid of the consequences of making decisions, waiting to make the right decision?
Perhaps the stress of dealing with Covid-19 has drained them of energy?
Large organizations have many “Custodians of Procedure” - the guys who tell you what you cannot do…but cannot help you to do what is required. They often hold positions in finance, legal or human resources. Or report to the CEO and attempt to “second-guess” decisions taken by Operational Leaders.

EP #221 Morgana Rae - How To Slay Your Money Monster
You can do everything right in the world and throw thousands (or hundreds of thousands) of dollars at coaches and courses and STILL not see the income and profits you desire and deserve. Especially if you're an idealist, an artist, a do-gooder, motivated by sharing your gift. Money becomes the obstacle to what you want to have, do, and be.
That's where I come in. I've coached thousands of clients to rapidly, radically, and permanently change their relationship with money so that making it and keeping it feels easy and aligned. (see examples at www.alchemysuccess.com)
I've been a life and business success coach for 27 years. I've been a marketing mentor and strategy queen since 1994. In my experience, who you are inside speaks louder than anything you can say or do. If you're unconsciously protecting yourself from what you consciously pursue, your unconscious always wins. Change happens at the speed of safety. Action is crucial, but it's the inner stuff that determines whether your actions will produce the results you desire.
MORGANA RAE is the international #1 best-selling author of “Financial Alchemy®: Twelve Months of Magic and Manifestation.” A 7-figure life and business coach for close to 3 decades, Morgana is regarded to be the world’s #1 authority on relationship with money. Her groundbreaking approach to building wealth by putting LOVE first has featured her on The Wall Street Journal, Yahoo Finance, all the major television networks, Coast to Coast Radio and hundreds more. Morgana’s fans call her the “Money Goddess” because of the many documented stories of clients manifesting unexpected income of 5, 6, and even 7 figures within hours of changing their relationship with money. A pioneer in personal development for 27 years, Morgana writes, speaks, and coaches from a desire to empower entrepreneurs, artists, healers, and humanitarians to have a big impact in the world… and to heal the rift between heart, spirit, and money.
