MM&I Header

August 20, 2012 -  Have you put a great deal of effort into something, and are now feeling impatient, or even disappointed, as you await an opportunity to unfold or the desired result to be realized? The key to opportunities being ever-flowing to you is through you continually empowering and exploring even beyond where you have taken your efforts to-date. The key to results being realized is by opening yourself up to possibilities that results can and will occur in ways you had not imagined or considered before.

Take an MM&I Moment to explore what you have done and what could still be done to keep the momentum flowing. Is there another source you could tap into? Is there another piece of information that could enlighten you? Is there someone you can trust to explore and open your mind to other ways to approach it? Opening your mind to all the possibilities and ways in which you can bring your desires into being not only keeps you engaged in making it happen, it also empowers the probability that it can and will happen.

Savvy Secret Tip of the Week

How are you assuring that marketing your business or even your abilities and skills are a daily part of how you operate?  Marketing is not a short-term function. If you view it that way, it is the very reason you only get short-term, short-lived results. Marketing should be an ongoing, daily function focused on sustainable results within your company just as the very operations must continue every day. When you make marketing an operational function within your company, you will be pleasantly and profitably surprised by the results.
