It’s been quiet around here because I’ve been working with my amazing pals at @flightdesign on SMCO’s strategy and planning for new offerings for 2018. I can’t wait to roll out our streamlined approach to custom design and our two new departments! I can’t express how invaluable it is to have experts in your corner—I give advice to clients all day long but I still need another perspective when planning for myself. Are you planning for next year yet? It’s hard to believe we’re on the home stretch of 2017 already! #bizplanning #smallbiz #designer #creativelifehappylife

Becoming a better sales person, isn't a bad thing. Sales is helping. Sales provides leverage to further grow and scale your business. ⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ To become better at sales, it starts with developing habits. Habits don't begin with action. They begin with a trigger to action. ⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ So, from working and engaging with entrepreneurs. There are few habits that fall under a sequence of experiences. ⠀ ⠀ 1. From trigger to action⠀ 2. To rewards ⠀ 3. To investments⠀ ⠀ Becoming a better sales person, looks at what triggers people experience. ⠀ There are both internal and external. Internally, what does the potential client/customer really want? What are the things that are willing to share and the things that they aren't willing to share.

Taking a break is crucial to your personal and professional well-being. As small business owners, we must make a point to take breaks. And not feel like we need to do and be everything in our business. ⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ If feeling like you need to do and be everything in your business, what happens. You limit your ability, to think like the ultimate strategist. ⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ Here are some things that happen when you and I take a break from our business. ⠀ ⠀ 1. It allows for us, to delegate better.⠀ 2. You come up with new ideas.⠀ 3. You learn more about your team.

To actually be able to increase profits. It must be backed by some real strategy. A strategy that is specific and is easy to follow. If it's easy to follow, then resistance to actioning it reduces. ⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ Here are a few things to note when wanting to increase profits. ⠀ ⠀ 1. Increasing the size of each transaction. Note, at the end of the day, it's your business and you can decide, by what percentage you want to increase your prices. But note, that when there is a 5 to 10 percent increase. There is likely to be less resistance. ⠀ ⠀ 2. Another, way to increase profits. Is to eliminate costly services. Not, only is it counter productive, but it also closes the lid on you having to spend marketing dollars to promote products/services that don't push the needle in your business. ⠀ ⠀ 3. Thirdly, increase individual sales. ⠀ The number of individual sales that you make to each customer that you acquire. By increasing the frequency of purchase by ten percent, you increase your sales and increase profits by the same percentage. ⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ What are some things that you could do to get your customers to buy more from you and to buy more frequently?⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ So, let me know! Which of these have you implemented in your business or plan to implement?

Remember that time in band camp? When they told you that things don't happen to you? And that you create your own reality? Turns it, that's still true today! If you firmly believe that the world is unsafe, you will easily find evidence of that everywhere! If you believe that no one is trustworthy, you'll easily find evidence of that too! The same is true when you believe that: :: YOU are abundant :: YOU are supported :: YOU are wise :: YOU are creative :: YOU are resourceful .....and everything in between. You will alway find evidence to prove your belief system right! So, what tools do you use regularly to hold the beliefs that support your vision AND how often do you use them? #beliefs #worldviews #safeworld #unsafeworld #vision #CEO #biztips #nextlevel #bizgoddess #bizplanning #bizplanning2018 #jenniferlongmore #mindset #moneytips #moneymindset #abundancemindset #womeninbusiness #clients #VIP #bizwisdom #receiving

What was your 'to do' list like today? I had a few small things to get the ball rolling, and then a few biggies to finish (like clear up my office after my mandala calendar work) so I can get back into my 12 week planner trial. How's the start to your week been?

On location for Women Magazine last week with these gorgeous ladies from @salonelan.wi ! We had the pleasure of touching up hair and makeup for a great group from the Packer Women Organization . They are making changes and improvements in the community. Totally inspiring ❤️ Photo shoots are so fun because we get out of the salon and once you see it published it's a warm fuzzy achievement 😊 If you're a biz owner what local magazine do you advertise in and why? 📚 #hairandmakeup #marketingtips #bizplanning @sparkledarling @caitlin_grace23
