What did you do today?

What did you do today?  Was it useful?  Did you learn something new?  Did it  help your business grow?  Did it improve your life?  Did it improve your SEO?  Did it make you a better blogger?  Add your examples here…..

What if you repeated it again tomorrow? and the next day? and the next day…..for a year, for 10 years?

The bigger question is this:  What if you never repeated it?  

One path is opportunity gained….the other path is opportunity lost!

Look around you for a successful person….someone you admire.  How did they become successful?  …..one step at a time, repeated over and over and over, for a long period of time.

If you don’t start today, then when will you start?  One year from today will still be one year from today!  Will you still be the same, or will you have added 365 days of experience to your resume?

Today’s tip brought to you by Tom Burns, Seller of things essential to life as we know it….. Connect with me at http://www.kimtag.com/nashvillesmart



Debbie Weaver, star of the hit ABC show The Neighbors, made a profound statement in a recent episode.  She said,  “We can’t change what we are on the outside….we can only change who we are on the inside.”

It seemed like a great life lesson, and important to remember at home and at work.    So the thought for today is this:  “When people look at you, do they see the what or the who?  What can you do today to change that perception?

I’m smiling as I share this thought with you today!   By Tom Burns,  Seller of things essential to life as we know it….

Do You Want To Grow Your Business?

Do you want to grow your business? ….of course you do….dumb question!

The better question is….”HOW will you grow your business?”  Some associated questions come to mind:

What is your product or service and what is your competitive advantage?

How will you tell others about it efficiently and in a cost effective manner?

Can you tell me what your product or service is in such a compelling manner that it makes me want to know more?  Can you do it in 60 seconds???

What have you done lately to improve your sales skills?  Found a mentor?  Read any good books? Discovered any new tools?  Are you stuck in a rut?

I’m convinced that one of the best ways to answer these questions can be found in networking groups.  In a structured setting you can advertise your business, learn about other businesses, develop trust among your peers, practice your selling skills, and earn referrals from people you know and trust.

I urge you to find a networking group today and continue to grow your business….because the work is never done!

Thought For The Day

This wall plaque hung in the kitchen of my childhood home.  It is one of several treasures now on display in my  home.  It is interesting to think about the things that shape our lives. What are some of the treasures you still have from your childhood?  What treasures are you giving your children today that will be important to them in the future?
