Why change has to first occur in our Thoughts, Attitudes, and Beliefs
As I’ve been getting my new company, PHNX21designs, off the ground, I’ve been thinking a lot about money. How I view money and even more how others view about money. Most of all why certain people or groups handle money they way do.
This line of thinking really kicked into gear when I made the decision to increase my rates. I realized that I was operating without margin and that I would have to churn out a tremendous amount projects to provide for my family – let alone invest back into my business.
Belief is a strange creature. It can cause us to stand resolute when everything around us says to run away. It can also cause us to move forward when it would be far easier just to stay where we are.
I’m not talking about your religious faith, but belief in another’s success. There are few things that we can do for another human being that are as impactful as believing in them. I’ve recently been the recipient of such belief during the launch of my new web and design company and I want to share the impact it’s had on me in the hopes it will inspire you to believe in someone around you.
When you sell on price you’re a commodity, but when you sell on value you’re a resource.
Are you a solopreneur with your own website? Or, maybe responsible for the website and social media for your church or organization. No matter your role, you want the same thing – more traffic on your website!
There are so many tools, tips, and tricks to driving more traffic to your site, but it can be difficult to know who to trust and what will work. While I don’t subscribe to any “magic pill” philosophies or tools, there is one tool I use that comes darn close. That tool is CoSchedule.
If there is any one secret to success, it lies in the ability to get the other person’s point of view and see things from that person’s angle as well as from your own.
Do you cringe when you have to utter the words, “help me”? Most people do. What is it about those two words that makes you and me feel weak and helpless?
From early on in our lives, we all do our best to assert our independence. That’s why there are funny stories of kids saying variations of “I’ll do it myself!” But, occasionally, we break from our rugged independence and ask for help and it’s then that some important changes happen in us and with the person whom we’ve asked.
Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain — and most do. But it takes character and self-control to be understanding and forgiving.
My first blog post in 3 months and what to expect moving forward
Hey! It’s been a while. 3 months to be exact-ish. I know in my last full post that I said I would be back at the beginning of April and I want to address that.
First of all, I want to apologize for not keeping my word. I value honesty and integrity and know that without those I cannot ever hope to lead at home, in business, or build an audience online. My hope is that you will have compassion and understanding. My guess is that if you’re reading my blog that you have both of those qualities.
