5 Holiday Business TIPS to Glue Business Relationships

Tis the season for all you business owners to get creative with an opportunity to build your business! To renew old acquaintances, glue business relationships and celebrate with clients and other business owners that have helped you in business all year! Here are some HOT Holiday Tips:1. Make a List…check it twice! Pull out all of your business cards for the entire year that you have collected. Put it into your database. Be sure to put them in categories…Most important possible client, Maybe’s, Not Likely.2. Make a Newsletter or FUN Holiday Card that you can Email out to your database. You can find a Marketing company that will do this for you, if you have no idea how to put it all together. Getting “one new client” will pay for itself.3. Put a Networking Event together inviting your database and asking them to bring a friend. Find a restaurant that will give you FREE food or use a FREE venue, since they will be getting all the exposure and visibility from your marketing efforts. Have FUN Holiday Networking Games that will help each and every person remember one another. If you have never done this type of event, you can contact Marketing and Event companies that will give you a detail “How To List”.4. Take a picture of yourself and your business and send out a THANK YOU to all those potential and existing clients. If you don’t have time to do this, there is companies out there that will do it for you. Remember…what is your return on the investment? If it costs $200 to have them send it out, if you get “one or two clients from the efforts”, it is well worth the cost. Keeping your name TOMA “Top Of Mind Awareness” will get these new clients5. Have a Deck the Walls party in your office or home. Decorate for the holidays and have a contest! Create a contest, by having all of your clients participate. Get a group together to be the judges, as you go to each of their offices and vote for the best dressed holiday office.The holidays are about “relationships”… LIVE to GIVE. Why not find out what your clients favorite hobbies, habits or interests are, and give them a gift that they will remember. Tickets to a Play, Sporting Event, Free Dinner for Two (you and your client), or a FREE Membership to a Networking Group that they can participate at for the entire New Year. Your potential clients and existing business clients will remember your efforts. You are doing something different than the average Joe! It will pay off!

Home Business Tips – Are You Paralyzed by Fear?

We all have days, times and moments where we are like a deer caught in the headlights of a car. We are frozen by fear. I remember in the beginning when I first started my home based MLM business coaching with John Di Lemme, he would tell me about different processes and phrases and they would scare the daylights out of me.One of the first things he taught me was to use the title on my business cards of International Champion Recruiter. I remember thinking that was so extremely different that what I had been taught previously, I could not even imagine calling myself an International Champion Recruiter. Then I decided I would take the leap and announce it to a small group I was working with at the time. To my amazement everyone liked it, people were interested in what it was all about and what I was doing. Today the title just rolls off my tongue like water, it feels very natural now.The sooner you take positive action the faster you’ll be on the road to building your own home based business. It really is a wonderful feeling when you do something you have been scared to do and find out it really was not that bad after all!You need a little something extra. When you give into the fear and anxiety or you stop and wait you are guaranteed to see the worst fears realized. Waiting for things to change is a losing proposition, because what you think about is what you get.Holding on to see what happens will suck you down the drain so fast you won’t know what happened. Making things change for you is the only way to win. So how do you make things change for you? The first step is to accept the fact that you are the only one responsible for your behavior. You make things happen in your life.
