What is ‘Facebook Live?’ - THIS is FB live.

As a business, this is a powerful and FREE tool to engage with your customers, prospects and wider network.

- FB reports 10x more engagement in live videos versus pre-recorded
- you can provide instant VALUE to your community 
- your community will grow 
- It is inexpensive (ie there is no cost to edit)
-can be done anywhere with an internet connection (assuming your country allows)
- yours are authentic, real, raw, and that vulnerability makes it easier for people to connect with you
- you can interact in real time 

It continually challenges you to be fresh and providing new insights to your community.

You have a dream or a vision for your business, for your clients, for a better life?

You will get there - if only you don’t quit 

Your marketing doesn’t generate the leads you want. Don’t quit.

The big deal you were working on doesn’t convert. Don’t quit.

Your main client cuts spend with you by half. Don’t quit.

Your dream life or dream vision is one conversation away. That conversation is with yourself.

When that doubt shows up in your mind.
Let that be the alarm bell.

The alarm bell that tells you, you are on track.
The alarm bell that tells you, you will make it, if you do not quit.

Persist. Believe. Do not quit.

For social proof, its great to get a testimonial from your clients about your great work. If you can get it on video, even better. To make sure you get an impactful testimonial to be sure to get your client to comment on:

Today I am joined by my wife Jodie Bees to demonstrate how to create a great testimonial.

Name
Where you are from
What you do 
The problem you came to solve
What you learned that solved this problem
The result (Physically, and emotionally, with time frame)
Give a character reference

In this video, we make up an example on the spot about an awesome experience with had Maartje, who is a #Doula from MotherMe in #Amsterdam, Netherlands. 

Ideally, your client WON'T have a baby in their video making noise (unless the baby is relevant to the testimonial, like in this one); and they'll record it with a stable camera (unlike in this video).

Be sure to edit the testimonial to make it succinct and powerful (without losing the intended meaning given by your customer).

Enjoy, and go get those testimonials created for yourself.

May 6, 2019

When you do a great job with your clients, they’ll want to share with you and when they do... keep a record of it!

Keep a record (electronic or physical) of the great things customers say about you!

This is important for many reasons including

1. It can be a positive reminder to you of the great work you are doing and create on going motivation, especially if you’re going through a harder time in your business.

2. It’s awesome to share with any team members you have so they can feel recognised for their contribution.

3. If it’s a physical display (eg my chiropractor) it’s a great influence (social proof) and reminder to other customers of your ability and skill!

If they only tell you verbally, ask them to put it in writing - into your fb group, as a linked recommendation or testimonial.

With their permission you can share these with others.

This is a SUPER POWERFUL tip that takes you from unresourceful to resourceful, and the technique helps you align your head and your heart quickly and easily.

When to use this technique?
Perhaps there is a forthcoming event that’s making you feel anxious or concerned about?

How do you use the technique?
Stand
Plant your feet firmly in the ground 
Hand on heart
Close your eyes
5 deep breaths in and out
- as you breathe out, let go of any and all negative stress or tension in your body
- as you breath in find yourself filling up with the resource you most need (positivity, clarity, certainty, focus, fun, etc etc)
Once you’ve completed your 5 breaths, visualise the event you have been anxious about, ONLY this time you visualise yourself 10 minutes AFTER the SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION OF THE EVENT (Ie it went well!)
Enjoy that feeling, let it wash over your body
Give thanks in advance

Enjoy the rest of your day and be sure to apply this whenever you’re feeling this way!

Whatever you type into google, google finds for you. If you look for negativity, you’ll find it; if you look for positivity, you’ll find it.

Your brain is the same. What you ask of it, it delivers.

Therefore, it’s critically important to pick the right question to ask!

If you ask a doubtful question like:
‘Am I good enough?’
Or negatively framed:
‘Why does bad stuff always happen to me?’

Your brain will find the answer.

Instead, get clear on your outcome and ask a question that finds you supportive answers 

Eg
What skills do I have that will make this a success?
Or
What are all of the good things that happen to me?

Action:
Change your habitual questions and notice how you feel differently and perform differently.

Connect with those who are already having the success you want... success leaves clues.

Think about how you can add value to them first. Make it a win/win arrangement.

I’ve often found that those having success are frequently those willing to give back and serve others; so don’t be afraid to make the request.

Today’s action - ask:
“What request haven’t I made yet, that if I did could transform my life beyond my wildest dreams?”

 Knowing the right people has opened up the door to $1m+ in income in my life, mostly for opportunities that were never advertised; nor could I have found through marketing activity.

Knowing the right people led to me being able to:
- get citizenship to a new country (Australia)
- meet my wife
- To get paid to travel the world doing work I love with people I love.
          
Why? 
A strength of the ‘weak ties’. 
Acquaintances are more influential than close friends!

What opportunities have you been in receipt of because of WHO you know?
What opportunities are you missing out on because of WHO YOU DON’T know yet?

Action today:
From the list of dream 50, you created yesterday, work out what connections you have in common. Who can introduce you?

Are you counting or discounting your progress?

Progress = Happiness 

The chances are that if you’re like a lot of entrepreneurs you are not paying attention to your wins, and being too focused on the things you haven’t accomplished yet; and this is having a negative impact on how you feel and the progress you make.

Start counting your WINS today!
