Take an MM&I Moment to write down all the things that are bothering you right now, no matter how small. What are you worrying won't turn out as you had hoped? What are you worrying won't happen that you want to happen? Get all these things down on paper. Then next to each one, write what you CAN DO to keep things moving in the direction that you desire. Write down what you CAN DO to make other exciting or positive things happen. Write down five things that you are happy have happened most recently. Then put your CAN DO spirit into motion. As a reminder of my definition of CAN DO, CLICK HERE.

Savvy Secret Tip of the Week
In 2004, 65% of consumers in a study of 5,000 Internet users determined their product purchases through online research. In 2011, that percentage has increased to 93%. If you are in business and want people to find you, you need a strong, dynamic and optimized Internet presence. Find out the most likely keywords that people needing your services or products would use and make sure they are driven to your website and to information about your company as a result. Get your customers to post reviews on Google reviews and other review sites for added testimony to you as the preferred choice.
