Mother Nature simply responds to the circumstances that she encounters. Human's have the power to think and to protect her and every life form that she supports. We cannot be too absorded in our own interests, self indulgences, and finanacial gains, ignoring the life force that allows us to live and thrive. Mother Nature is the core to human being existence. Please respect, protect and revere her life force or source. carol@whengrowthmatters.com (Carol Enman) Fri, 02 Jun 2017 00:00:00 EST id_0245 Balance is... http://www.whengrowthmatters.com/display_post.php?post_id=233 Found in the middle, not in the extreme's. carol@whengrowthmatters.com (Carol Enman) Wed, 22 Feb 2017 00:00:00 EST id_0233 Change is a challenge but necessary http://www.whengrowthmatters.com/display_post.php?post_id=180 Change is such a challenge for humans, with the slightest little thing giving us permission to scurry back to our comfort zone. We can easily discard the opportunities that will come with change. Yet change is an inevitable part of life, no matter how much we might resist it. We are constantly making choices, and every choice that we make impacts what happens to us going forward. The simplest little choice, can make the biggest change in our lives! Think back to turning points you have experienced and what caused that turn. It may be a completely innocent little, tiny, off the cuff choice that you made. We are all on this life adventure, why or how is not as important as the adventure it's self. Try not to fight change, as you really can't stop it. In fact, fighting it takes you in another direction. Try to align yourself with positive, open, and articulate people, who discuss the pros and cons of opportunities. They are the most likely to influence positive thinking and a good decision making processes in your life choices. carol@whengrowthmatters.com (Carol Enman) Wed, 17 Jun 2015 00:00:00 EST id_0180 The Pros and Cons of Thinking http://www.whengrowthmatters.com/display_post.php?post_id=179 Understand that we create our own life environment and circumstances by the choices we make. Some of these choices are completely unconscious choices, programmed into our behavior or decisions making processes, based on the life experiences we had as a child or the way we interrupted the experiences we had as a child. Others might even say that this is what we wanted to address in this lifetime. No matter how or where your thought processes came from, this is the least important part of of your life's equation. The only thing that really matters is if you are contented with your life or not. If you are not, then there is only one way to change your life and this is to change your thought processes. As you will not get a different reaction or actions in life, unless you think differently. As our thoughts are what is creating the experience we are having. carol@whengrowthmatters.com (Carol Enman) Sun, 15 Feb 2015 00:00:00 EST id_0179 Marketing Does Not Mean Advertising http://www.whengrowthmatters.com/display_post.php?post_id=177 Marketing in the 21st century starts the mission or goals of your business. Why do you exist? What is your purpose? Who do you provide your products or services to? Why would they want or need these services? What are you going to do for them? And 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 you're provide to what audience of buyers? Once you have defined the above, then you develop a robust, interactive, website. The development of this site says everything about you. And I don't mean that the verbiage on the site says everything about you. Although the verbiage is exceptional important. I mean the sites look, feel, usability, images, etc., says everything about you. If your site looks weak, cheap, isn't, clear, easy to navigate, easy to find the content that readers are looking for, then it says you don't have your act together. If your site is attractive, has eye appeal, has good imagery that speaks to what you do, is easy to navigate and to find what viewers are looking for, is well written, answers users questions, then it says, you get it. You your are a professionalIn the 21st century, your website is your 24/7 marketing and sales tool. Advertising is just one of many ways of attempting to influence prospects to pay attention to you, tell them that you have what they need and most importantly drawing prospects to your website! Advertising is used by a limited number of companies! Maybe 20% of the market advertises, if they have a specific goal or message to share. Even your sales messages comes from what's listed above. Please do not confuse marketing with advertising. carol@whengrowthmatters.com (Carol Enman) Sat, 24 Jan 2015 00:00:00 EST id_0177 Last SDM Article http://www.whengrowthmatters.com/display_post.php?post_id=176 In last month’s edition of Growth Matters, I asked what motivates you to get up in the morning and go to work? 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. The earlier you pinpoint your passion and the more you adhere to it, the greater your success will be. Your passion(s) may lead you in unexpected directions. Passionate people tend to be more interesting, have more life experiences, and are enthusiastic, and this draws other people to them. Passionate people tend have more fun, are more upbeat, and find personal rewards in what they do with money.To read more go tohttp://www.sdmmag.com/articles/90749-speaking-words-of-wisdom carol@whengrowthmatters.com (Carol Enman) Sat, 10 Jan 2015 00:00:00 EST id_0176 Are Quality Prospects More Important Than the Quanity of Prospects? http://www.whengrowthmatters.com/display_post.php?post_id=175 The pressure to see as many prospects as you can, juggle as many balls in the air as you can, and create as many project proposals as you can is a sheer waste of time. 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
