It's up to you to settle your mind, fight your demons, find your harmony and your peace in your world. We all go through "stuff, crap, stress, upset, heartbreak, gobbledygook" in life. It's just the way life is. Some folks deal with more than others. Some deal with less. What you face, deal with and overcome can make you a stronger, wiser, deeper and relevant person than those who have limited challenges. Life is a journey, a ride, an adventure... do the best you can. That's all you can do. carol@whengrowthmatters.com (Carol Enman) Tue, 19 Feb 2019 00:00:00 EST id_0179 Balance http://www.whengrowthmatters.com/display_post.php?post_id=233 Balance is found inside of you, not outside of you. Make time to sit alone, quietly, each day, reviewing your days' highs and lows, making peace with anything that created stress for you. This simple action can begin to create a better and better balance which will grow in value as time passes, lessons are learned, understood, and put into practice. carol@whengrowthmatters.com (Carol Enman) Wed, 06 Jun 2018 00:00:00 EST id_0233 Success or failure is in your hands http://www.whengrowthmatters.com/display_post.php?post_id=111 Ron Finklestein, president and owner of AKRIS, LLC stated in his YouTube video that there are three "key issues" most important to business owners and operators-they want more money, more time and more productive employees. He believes this can be accomplished with the right attitude, a strategy and good discipline. First, the owner, operator or CEO within any organization must take ownership of their businesses problems. They are your problems and without taking ownership of them, nothing will change. You can't just blame others for the issues. Second, a business must have a strategic plan. Without that, you are a rudderless ship going around in circles. With a clear strategy you can identify who your customer is, what skills your employees need to have and exactly what needs doing to grow your business. Finally, you need to stay focused and stay disciplined. A bad strategy that is well executed can be hugely successful. A good strategy that is not well executed will likely fail! http://www.securityinfowatch.com/article/10524078/publishers-viewpoint carol@whengrowthmatters.com (Carol Enman) Thu, 10 May 2018 00:00:00 EST id_0111 Mother Nature http://www.whengrowthmatters.com/display_post.php?post_id=245 Who depends on whom here?

Why do you exist? What is your purpose, your goal? Who do you provide your products or services for? Why would they want or need these? What are you going to do for your buyer? Why are you qualified to provide what you offer? Who, what, when, where, why...and anything else that is relevant to your mission and goals and what benefit will it provide to your buyers? Once you have defined the above, you develop a robust, interactive, website focusing on the answers to the questions above. The more professional your site looks, the better you present yourself to your buyers, with your content being most important. Your website is your 24/7 marketing and sales tool. Advertising is just one of many ways to influence prospects to go to your site. carol@whengrowthmatters.com (Carol Enman) Wed, 24 Jan 2018 00:00:00 EST id_0177 Change is Inevitable http://www.whengrowthmatters.com/display_post.php?post_id=180 Nothing is stagnant...everything is always moving, changing, morphing, expanding and contracting.

Is it the paycheck or your passion? Do you love your job or is it a means to a financial end? Passion drives success for individuals and businesses alike. Passion needs to be tied to your customer's needs, as without these two things working in harmony, your financial success is at risk. https://www.sdmmag.com/articles/90749-speaking-words-of-wisdom carol@whengrowthmatters.com (Carol Enman) Wed, 10 Jan 2018 00:00:00 EST id_0176 Mother Nature http://www.whengrowthmatters.com/display_post.php?post_id=246 Staying connected to Mother Nature in all her beauty will help bring you peace, love and happiness.

Of course, sales is a numbers game and you have to work with a flow of prospects to close deals. But it’s more about qualifying your leads, working your best leads, ensuring that you provide your prospects with the answers they are looking for, and delivering the result they want.http://www.sdmmag.com/articles/90346-are-quality-prospects-more-important-than-the-quanity-of-prospects carol@whengrowthmatters.com (Carol Enman) Sun, 30 Nov 2014 11:30:05 EST id_0175 Preparing for Retirement http://www.whengrowthmatters.com/display_post.php?post_id=173 Preparing for Retirement November 14, 2014 By Carol Enman Many of the dealers and integrators who own companies in the security industry have what is called a “lifestyle business,” meaning the business brings in enough profits for the owners to live in nice homes, drive great cars, and travel in style. While the owners may appear or may truly be living a comfortable lifestyle, this can change when it comes time for retirement, if a business owner is not prepared. http://www.sdmmag.com/articles/90626-preparing-for-retirement carol@whengrowthmatters.com (Carol Enman) Sun, 30 Nov 2014 11:21:29 EST id_0173
