MM&I Header

March 25, 2013 -  Is your lack of resources limiting what you are trying to accomplish? Or, is it more that you think that your resources are limited?  It may be time to focus on how you can be more resourceful versus limited in your thinking. If you believe you are limited, then you are limited. If you believe there has to be a way to accomplish what you are setting out to accomplish, in spite of anything thrown in your way, you will find a way.

Take an MM&I Moment to list what resources you believe you are lacking. Is it monetary? Is it people support? Is it time? Is it a combination of these issues? Then open up your curiosity to possibilities of where needed resources could come from to help move you forward. Review your list and ask yourself what connections do you have that can provide some of the resources that you could use or could point you in the direction of needed resources?  What relationships do you have with whom you could share your ideas about what you are trying to achieve? Could these individuals share any thoughts and help you determine how you could get the resources needed?  The more you explore possibilities, perspectives, and options, the more likely a resource will literally seem as though it came out of nowhere just when you needed it the most.

Savvy Secret Tip of the Week

How are you unleashing the power of the word-of-mouth in your favor? From building a referral network to creating circles of influence, your business could be realizing a continuous stream of interest, inquiries and sales.

ARE YOU EFFECTIVELY USING THE POWER OF ASKING? My March column in Sophie Woman's Magazine focuses on "The Power of Asking." You have probably heard it said that "it never hurts to ask." Too often, our fear that the answer we will get is not what we had hoped it would be holds us back from truly exploring and realizing all the opportunities before us. CLICK HERE to read the column, which is located on page 27.


ARE YOU REINVENTING FOR THE WRONG REASONS? During challenging economic times, reinventions occur more frequently than new inventions as a means of strategic survival and growth in a business.
