3 Effective Ways to Put Your Heart in Your Hustle
Huffington Post - 3 months
Image Credit Most entrepreneurs are talking about how the hustle and grind, long hours of work, little or no sleep, several cups of coffee and weekend hijacked by even more work seem to be the order of the day. But is that all there is to life? If the hustle is so good then why is it everything but attractive? Why does the hustle have to seem like slavery? The reason why the hustle creates such a negative picture is because a majority of people have got the whole concept of hustling upside down. Your heart feels your hustle, not the other way round. Hard work without the right intentions in place, without a goal or purpose greater than yourself, only amounts to mental and physical strain. And in the end you have nothing to show for it. But when your heart is in whatever you do, you'll succeed and no matter how hard you have to work it won't look like a strain but a necessary part of the journey. You'll feel more motivated to keep going. Have a look at how your hea ...

Choose Your Income in 3 Simple Steps in 2016
Huffington Post - about 1 year
What if you were told you are earning today exactly the amount you have chosen to earn, no more and no less; that you are where you are financially because you have chosen to be right there. Would you agree with that? Most would adamantly disagree. But the fact remains that there are specific actions you've taken thus far to get to your current income level at your current job. From that perspective you have decided or chosen the amount of income as a result of your actions and inactions. Inactions? Yes, inactions because no matter what income level you find yourself, if asked if you want to make more money, nine times out of ten, the answer will be yes. Since most people will answer in the affirmative, then there have to be actions that you have failed to take that have caused your current income to stay at a level below what you truly want to earn. So the question becomes, what must I do to increase my earning ability now? Fortunately, you can choose today to t ...

2015: A Year
Huffington Post - about 1 year
This will appear in my Philadelphia Inquirer, New Years eve and HERE! Hazzah! The long dark night that was 2015 is over. The past year produced as much delight as former Eagles coach Chip Kelly finding out his new roommate is sports radio talker Angelo Cataldi. Yet, given the mass shootings, the bombings, and the possible banning of 5-year-old Muslims from entering the country, take heart and a deep breath. Before Muslim countries threaten to ban all Republicans, we can grow from 2015's difficulties. Adversity can be a stepping stone to something better. Sometimes unimaginably better. Think mold begeting penicillin. Think polio becoming polio vaccine. Think finishing with the worst record in the National Basketball Association, giving a team the best chance to select a great draft choice (who probably will not be healthy enough to play for at least another year). Think of 2015 as a fungal, disease-ridden 76ers and 2016 as the penicillin shot heard round the world. Eleanor Roo ...

50 Quotes That Will Inspire You to Lead From the Heart
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
In our business culture, and society in general, the image or metaphor of the heart is often associated with yielding, kindness -- or perhaps weakness. Yet, the heart is also strong and powerful, as well as the driving force of life. Your ability to lead well is hindered when there is an unbalanced connection with the heart. Embracing a heart-centered approach to business lies in your ability to stop, go inward, and reflect on the course of action that you know is the right one, rather than succumbing to external pressures. Business owners who genuinely lead with their heart -- not just their head -- are also more equipped to connect with the emotional needs of employees. They understand that people have the need to be valued, respected, listened to and involved. By acknowledging and honoring the human element, heart-centered leaders possess the wisdom and capacity to positively transform any organization and run extremely successful and profitable businesses. Remember that hon ...

Women in Business: Q&A with Dina Dwyer-Owens, CEO of The Dwyer Group
Huffington Post - about 3 years
Dina Dwyer-Owens, CEO of The Dwyer Group, former Chairwoman of the International Franchise Association and author of Live R.I.C.H. Dina oversees a franchise empire of more than 1,600 franchise locations around the world. Dina appeared on "Undercover Boss" on CBS, and from that experience launched the Women In The Trades Program to attract more women to The Dwyer Group service brands. How has your life experience made you the leader you are today? I literally grew up working in the business before it became a holding company for multiple franchised service brands. By the time I was 13, I was learning all about sales and customer service at a car wash that my father owned. From there I went on to work in almost every aspect of our company. From cleaning carpets to franchise sales, I learned by doing. I also had the privilege of being raised by parents who expected the best from all of their children. My mother grounded me in my faith and my father instilled a strong work ethic to, as ...

Married to Your Work: How to Be in Business with Your Spouse
Huffington Post - over 3 years
"The secret of a happy marriage is finding the right person. You know they're right if you love to be with them all of the time." -- Julia Child My husband and I were both working in the publishing industry 18 years ago when I had an idea to start my own business. I wanted to promote books online. I left a great job to follow my interests, but thankfully, my past employer became my first client. Within a year of starting FSB Associates, I had more work than I could do alone, so my husband took a huge leap of faith and quit his job to join me. Together we built a niche service company creating online awareness for books and authors through a seamless integration of social media and web publicity. We build brands and loyal communities of readers for authors, and create and design author websites to help authors build the foundation of their digital strategies. Many years ago, people advised me not to work with family -- particularly a spouse -- and that's not bad advice, but for us, it ...

Katie Lance: The 5 Rules to Not Suck at Social Media If You Are in Sales
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Over the years, I have worked with a number of sales people. In fact, before marketing and social media, my background initially was in sales. I was a sales representative in a direct sales organization for more than eight years and worked my way through college with in-home sales presentations. I learned so much in that position -- this was before social media, but what I learned help to lay the foundation for working with people, building trust and increasing sales. Sales is a people business and social media hasn't changed that. But the way we communicate and can now build relationships with clients and prospects has changed. Here are my five rules for making the most of social media if you are in sales: 1. Build rapport. I remember those in-home sales I used to make, I never started with what I was there to sell, I started by talking about their home or their kids -- asking questions about them to put them at ease. Somehow with social media, many sales people h ...

Michael Drew: Entering the Zig Ziglar Zone: Remembering
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Energy and optimism -- you'd think that we'd all have a natural supply of it. But you'd be wrong: Many people needed Zig Ziglar to remind them of what was important. Zig Ziglar, who died of pneumonia last week at the age of 86, was a motivational speaker -- before the term became corrupted by the charlatans who turn speaking engagements into opportunities to hustle money from the hopeful and unsuspecting. He encouraged people not to take but to give. "You can have everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want," as his New York Times obituary quoted. That kind of thinking, that message, can still sound a bit foreign to some people who feel they can ask for and have it all -- without considering others. But it's definitely in line with what I believe is our attitude in today's society: that people on the whole cherish a sense of community, and of working together for the common good. I do quite a lot of public speaking my ...
