Just Do These 3 Things Daily

Just Do These 3 Things Daily

Blogs are just too long to read if you have ADD like I do. Combine ADD with a busy schedule and our minds are all over the place.

What do I do first? How do I keep from getting distracted? What is important, urgent and what can wait?

I find that these 3 Simple adjustments to your daily routine will make a significant impact to your productivity and focus.

Here you go:

1. Set your Intention – first thing in the morning, move your body in some way. Stretch, yoga,sit-ups, anything that gets the blood flowing to your brain and activates your physical self. This is the very important part- follow up your exercise with setting intentions. This can be a short meditation, closing your eyes, slowing down and developing your intention for the day. You may want to have a successful meeting, contribute to the well being of someone else or simply have a day filled with smiles and great energy. This sets the wheels in motion and your neurotransmitters begin to fire and create pathways to focus effort on achieving your intention. It sounds simple but these are simple so just give it a try without judgement and benefit from the results.

2. Be Proactive, not Reactive – the second thing you do in your day once you set your intention is make a list of no more than 7 people that you need to reach out to in order for you to achieve your goals. This can be someone who needs a proposal, a follow up to what you already sent, an introduction to a warm prospect or anyone that you were planning to reach out to that you procrastinated about and still haven’t. This is your daily prospect list. These are hot opportunities that require a proactive approach. The reason for 7 is that our mind can only handle 7 tasks effectively.

3. Take Action – now that you have a list of your hot prospects for the day, open your email and copy the name of your prospect into the search field. If they sent you an email or responded to one you sent them, then this is your top priority email response. These are the first and ONLY emails you send. If the email requires a phone call, then send an email response with specific times you are available. Follow up with a calendar invite and then make that call on schedule.

Second, check your voicemail and only take action if the identified prospect left a message. Table the others as a follow up after you complete your focus tasks. Do not move on to anything else until you effectively responded to that hot prospect. If they do not respond, then in your action list, you will proactively email or call the 7 people that you listed earlier.

These 3 adjustments sound simple but I guarantee that just making them a part of your daily routine will create habits that will significantly improve your focus and productivity. The key is to stay disciplined.

Do NOT do any prospecting. Do NOT respond to any other emails or voice mails. Do NOT conduct research and most importantly do NOT engage in social media.

Please share your experience with me at lenmay@lenmaycoaching.com.

Also, I am available for coaching and consulting to help you to implement these and other strategies that are guaranteed to make a significant impact on your business and life.

All the very best,
Len May

7 Most Common Mistakes Sales People Make

#sales, #moresales, #fixsales,

Hi. We all get complacent at times. Heck, I am good at giving advice but not as good at taking my own. The idea is to acknowledge that we are making the same mistakes and then make the necessary changes to address them. Once you do and make the required changes you will see a significant measurable increase in your sales. The trick is to make the shift in a positive way focusing on encouragement and the benefits to the sales person will have to their own sales goals and compensation plan.

1. The prospect takes over the sales process
How to Change?
Begin to ask questions. Treat it like a discovery call and follow a process where you can get answers to specific pain points, the ideal solution, obstacles and establish yourself as the subject matter expert.

2. Not doing your homework
How to Change?
Do your research prior to a call or engagement. You never know when a prospect can call you back so know your stuff and have it available in a CRM or somewhere for quick access. There is nothing worse than having someone feel their time is wasted because you are rehashing old info that you already know.

3. Providing irrelevant information
How to Change?
It is critical to make sure your prospect likes and trusts you. In addition they need to like the company and solution but you are the catalyst to make that happen. The flow of your presentation is key. Only hit the areas that you identified in the discovery process. Don’t talk about their new website if they are focused on building their new App. Focus on how your solution will fix an immediate need.

4. Taking over the conversation
How to Change?
Sales people love to talk (mostly about themselves) so this is the time that they have to learn to listen. You want to talk enough to give off the genuine impression that you care about your prospects unique and specific needs. Prompt them with questions and then sit back and take notes since all the buying signs will be presented to you.

5. Not being prepared
How to Change?
The key to a strong sales presentation is preparation. When you see a singer on stage and they sound great it’s a result of a lot of preparation. This is your performance. This is your stage so be ready to perform. Have your list of questions. Check the website. Look at competitors. Get a sense of the industry. Check LinkedIn. See what events they like to go to and show up… ok, that’s a joke. You don’t want to be a stalker 😉

6. Never asked for the sale
How to Change?
This is one of the biggest issues I see. We are eager to present our solution but our tone changes when we ask for the sale or worse, we never ask. Sales people like to schedule another meeting. You need to strike when the iron is hot so ask for the sale. If you sell a product or service you are obligated to ask for a commitment. This is a trade off for your time spent and their time as well. This is the goal you set for yourself prior to the call right? Make sure when you do it’s done in the same general tone and you are prepared to offset the investment amount with greater value.

7. Not having new prospects
How to Change?
When a sales person makes a sale they celebrate and then take their effort down since they successfully achieved a goal. The issue is that you are most likely to attract a new opportunity when you are in the state of greatest achievement. Hence, celebrate then get right back on and prospect. The goal is to constantly have your funnel filled. This is achieved through a multi-faceted inbound lead strategy as well as outbound strategy. Make sure to schedule your prospecting daily.

The goal is to have fun with sales and don’t sell!

The Ultimate Guide Through Divorce

How to navigate through the journey

The Ultimate Guide Through Divorce

Well, actually this is a preview of what is coming. I am planning a seminar in Santa Monica, CA. sometime in July, 2015. (Date T.B.D)

You will also be able to download the complete guide as an ebook soon.

I’ve spent a lot of time coaching individuals, but I have also received tremendous insight running my support group, Rebuilding Your Life After Divorce.

Through the group, I learned that I need to make more time for individual 1 on 1 coaching as well as open the experiences of the group setting to a wider audience.

My goal is to begin separating the journey through divorce into 7 categories. This way, we can work in each of the areas without feeling overwhelmed.

We naturally define ourselves based on our relationships. The attachment changes when we let go knowing that the other main person in our life doesn’t want to be with us or we no longer want to be with them.
Remember, the person we married is not the same person we are divorcing.
Who are we without them? This is part of what we need to uncover and discover.

How to heal?

Holding on to emotion is like being punched in the face. Initially it hurts, but the pain eventually subsides. However, every time you think about it, it’s like getting punched in the face over and over.
Plus, you empower the person who punched you without them even realizing it.
So, take your power back! Release and begin the process of freeing and healing.

Now that you have the basic premise, here’s the brief overview:

ULTIMATE GUIDE THROUGH DIVORCE OVERVIEW

1. Navigate the on-going emotional turmoil

a. Thoughts create emotions. Allow the thought to enter, recognize it and ask if you can let that go and by when?
b. We are usually at our best when we are at our lowest. Chose to overcome obstacles and turn them into opportunities. You have that power!
c. You are not your relationship. Visualize and document in detail the life that you want.

Opening up that space allows for great things to be attracted to you as long as your energy is vibrating at a high frequency.

2. Financial stress

a. In a “community property” state (CA) your spouse is entitled to half of every dollar you earn, including all your joint assets and retirement plans
b. However, every dollar your parents gifted you or her individually are strictly yours or theirs,c. Get your mind around the fact that you will now have half of what you had but you can rebuild and grow since you removed the negative anchor that is preventing your growth. You can now invest for the long term.

3. Legal

a. The “just get me out” mentality creates future additional stresses. The minute you leave your house, you give control of your kids to the spouse who stays in the house.
b. This helps the courts see the status quo has been established Your spouse is home with the kids and the courts don’t like to displace. This will most likely lead the court to establishing child support and visitation accordingly

4. Taking control of your life

a. Practice daily Gratitude, Compassion and Love. This will support healing and being present. Be Compassionate to yourself but don’t anchor to it as an excuse.
b. Forgive yourself and don’t stuff your emotions. This will create a pressure cooker that will eventually lead to depression or anxiety.
c. Begin by creating the life that you always wanted to have and why you want it.

5. Re-learning to meet people

a. Until you heal yourself, you will not have the right energy to attract a positive relationship to your life.
b. We still have a basic human need for connection therefore meeting people without any expectations can serve you in a positive way
c. There is a way to use new media like dating sites to connect to people that are positive in your certain stage of healing.

6. Co-Parenting

a. Co-Parenting provides stability for your kids. You must develop a cordial relationship and a set schedule
b. Set boundaries. Avoid taking out your frustration in front of the kids and speak positively about your spouse to your kids. If you have nothing positive to say make sure it’s not negative. Your kids are half you and your spouse so kids can take any negative comments personally
c. The only thing you can control is your own relationship with your kids. So show a lot of love and be the best parent that you can be and don’t spend a lot of your energy concerned about what happens in your spouse’s house.

7. Do’s and Don’ts

a. Don’t jump into an immediate relationship. You are vulnerable and injured, that is exactly what you will attract
b. Do invest your time and energy into taking better care of you. Eat right, exercise, get a haircut, and buy some new clothes.
c. Don’t mask the pain through alcohol, drugs, spending money, etc…
d. Do invest in clarity. You are going to feel pain but you have an option to linger in it.

Thank you!

Gratitude, Love and Compassion open up space for you to enjoy the life you always dreamed of!

Small Business Coaching, Big Business Coaching and Executive Coaching…Same Basic Issues

It doesn’t matter if you are a small business or big business the issues always come down to people. I am on my second day doing an Executive Coaching engagement with a $30M dollar company. This is probably a medium sized business and they had enjoyed steady growth but not necessarily steady profitability. The issues are the same as they are for a small business or and enterprise, they are aligned exactly with the core issues I usually address in Personal Coaching. The core issue is having an individual placed in a position that is misaligned for their personality traits. This creates a great deal of conflict for the individual and interrupts the enterprise at every level. The emotion that is spent in managing day to day tasks when the employee or even the manager is not in their natural flow creates chaos, apathy and even resentment. So what is the solution? Well here are a few:
