Small Business Saturday

Create a Community not a Competition

I have a business consulting client who sells chainsaw parts on ebay Chainsaw Farm. After one week of working together he sent me a text saying: “Check this out. Another seller told this guy to contact me for parts.” And in the text he attached the message so I would believe it.

My response:  “That’s great!” Remember you have a community not a competition.”

Because of his honest business practices and great customer service he has earned a reputation good enough for other sellers in his field to recommend him to their clients.

Isn’t that the ultimate goal in any business?  

I mean it doesn’t get much better than that!

So Be Yourself and remember you have no competition because there is no other YOU on the planet.  Create a community with other business owners and great customer service with your clients and you will succeed.

Thoughtful Thursday – Book Review

Miracles Now by Gabrielle Bernstein

Miracles Now

I told you I had a great new book for you.

If you feel stressed, rushed, on the go, and just an overall sense of uneasiness about life this is a great place to start.

Gabby has given us 108 Tools for Stress Free, Peaceful Living.

The very first tool is all about happiness.  Happiness is a choice you make.  We often fail to realize that we do have the choice to be happy or unhappy.  We were born with free will which makes this life altering decision our own.  We also have the choice to take any given situation and turn it around into a positive one.

In the many other tools to follow she discusses peace, meditation, money, forgiveness, judgement, and truth and how to create new habits and behaviors in order to feel this happiness she’s talking about.

It’s not easy with all of the negativity, complaining, criticism, and sarcasm we face day in and day out to stay happy, positive, peaceful, and present.  But if you’d like to give it a shot then this is a great place to start.
