Womenpreneur, what choices are you making in your life and business?

What-Choices-Are-You-Making-In-Life-And-Business-?

About a month ago, I asked someone a question about a particular situation that affected a client I was assisting.  Their response was so negative and to make matters worse, the person responded with a condescending tone and never answered the question.   I responded back to the person out of frustration which didn’t help the client at all, it just delayed things even longer.  Then it dawned on me.  Even though that individual had a patronizing attitude , I still had a choice in the matter to not allow anyone to dictate my response.  As a mother of 5 children, I always remind them that even though they may be right about something, how they respond could cause the situation to end up not favorable on their behalf.  I couldn’t wait to share that experience with my younger children.  Afterall, if I expected them to respond a certain way , then I needed to remember to practice what I preach, right?  It was a lesson well learned.

Life doesn’t just happen to you.  It’s all about CHOICES and how you respond to every situation
– Canfield, Hansen and Hewitt

This includes the choices you display in the business world every day.  Your choices play a major role in how your future unfolds.    As wifepreneurs, divorced mompreneurs and single mompreneurs, we will all face a defining moment that can transform our lives in positive or negative ways,  but our choices and responses toward every situation will ultimately determine whether you end up living with abundance or living in poverty.

Please share the day you decided to respond differently and your end result below in the comments section.

Successful Womenpreneurs Don’t Drift to The Top

Successful People Don't Drift To The Top It Takes Focused Action

Don’t be a quitter

Last week I picked up the revised special 10th Anniversary Edition book, The Power of Focus, How to hit your business, personal and financial targets with confidence and certainty written by Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen and Les Hewitt.  I can’t put it down.  Each chapter is field with tons of information that you can use in your personal life and business.  In chapter one alone, I’ve found several statements that I was able to turn into quotes so I thought I’d share them with you all in a form of a picture.

Successful people don’t drift to the top.  It takes focused action, personal discipline and lots of energy every day to make things happen.
-Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen and Les Hewitt

This quote and all of the others I’ll be sharing I believe will help myself and other Womenpreneurs maintain focus and take action in there personal and business life?

4 Solutions for De-Stressing Your Business Starting Right Now

W

hat if you could save an hour a day starting tomorrow? That’s 5 hours per week, or more than a half-day off. Imagine closing up shop at 11am every Friday without worrying about all the stuff that didn’t get done.

You can do that, when you put these 4 solutions in place, and you can do it right now.

Proper project management. If you’re still managing your team with email and Skype messages, stop it. Things get lost, messages are forgotten (or never received) and balls are dropped. Not to mention all the time you spend sifting through your endless list of emails for that one piece of information you need.

Sign up for Asana, Basecamp, Freedcamp or research Google today for a project management tool that fits your personality, and start putting all your projects there instead. You’ll have one place to look for tasks that are still outstanding, and be able to tell at a glance what needs your immediate attention.

Proper documentation. Do you find yourself reinventing the wheel every time you have to record a podcast or upload a video to your blog? Take 5 minutes and document the steps, then next time you have to do it (or better yet, when you hand it off to a VA) you’ll be able to quickly work out what needs to happen. There will be fewer mistakes, and the work will get done faster.

Create a business organization chart. If you have multiple people on your team, this is critical. Rather than everyone coming to you for questions—or worse, asking the wrong person and getting the wrong answer—take the time to create an organization chart. Add it to your operations manual and make sure your team knows where it is and what it’s for. Now, rather than your Skype chat blowing up with questions all day long, you’ll have time for the more important tasks.

Use time blocking. Get out your calendar and start making appointments with yourself. Decide when you’ll check email and when you’ll work on client projects, then stick to the schedule. These self-imposed deadlines will not only force you to get the work done, but they’ll help keep you focused, so rather than wasting time on Facebook, you’ll be working on your business.

All of these systems can be set up in an afternoon—at least initially. But the time they save you when you use them consistently is phenomenal. An hour a day is just the beginning, but you have to take action. You have to put in the work first, before you can earn the rewards, but the benefits are sweet. In the end, you’ll wonder how you ever managed before you did these four things to improve your business.
