Untold Secrets of a Quality Business Life Coach Exposed

As a business life coach I have discovered that creating any success for my clients all starts from within first, which I refer to as being your life master. Being your life master is about having total clarity of your goals and outcomes but in essence it is to create a life for yourself and create a life for others.

By asking these two self-exploration questions you will begin your journey on fulfilling this.

1 – What Will I Do To Add Value To My Life?

2 – What Will I Do To Add Value To Other Lives?

A quote by a great author Kenneth D. Foster below explains why it is so important of being your life master now:

Your Life cannot be repeated. It is now or never, so find out who you are, what your heart longs to achieve, and then sail away from safe harbors and explore your greatest dreams

Firstly, by being clear on YOU (what I refer to as your Significantly Special Being), is the start of creating a life for yourself. You want to seek firstly what truly fulfills you and understand the reasons why? Clients would ask my how and where do I start? What I always say to them is, by asking some self-exploration questions you will begin to discover what truly fulfills you such as:

– What do you believe your life is all about?
– What makes you unique?
– What are your greatest talents, skills and abilities?
– What would you be doing in your life if you know you absolutely could not fail?
– What is the greatest dream you can imagine accomplishing in your life?

As a great mentor and a very good friend Darren Stephens quotes:

“The ability to be successful on the inside first is what truly brings outer success, wealth and abundance to your Life”

Secondly, by having the compassion to help more people live an incredible life and be able to contribute to their lives will create unlimited success. This is very critical to becoming your Life Master and you will discover that besides your loving family, this is also what gives you true fulfillment. Now, to manifest this you want to seek firstly what truly fulfills others and really be able to understand how to help them in their unique way.

As what I always say: Seek First to Understand, to Contribute

In addition to this another Life Master who is a mentor of many and close friend Spike Humer once said:

“Once you know whats important to you and who is important to you, the key to success in business and in life is to learn what makes you both feel important and valued, then do it with all your might.”

I will have more sharing to come about Life Master and its components of Life Formula, Life Outcome and Life Accelerator. I truly hoped you have loved the brief introduction and discovered some the secrets of what a quality Business Coach can offer to your success and to your clients success in any offline or online businesses.

From Marketing to Profits – The Circle of Business Life

There are many points on the circle of business life. They’re all important, and their individual successes depend entirely on the quality of a few simple concepts – purpose, values, trust, leadership, and communication.

Purpose: The reason any business exists must be clearly articulated and supported by the employees. Mission and vision are certainly important but, an understanding of why the business exists and how it benefits its customers has to be a core motivator for the employees as they do their work.

Values: These are the standards, principles and practices that the organization will not compromise while conducting business. The employees should willingly buy in to the values and be comfortable practicing them daily.

Trust: A high level of trust in any organization speeds processes and projects, reduces costs, increases employee morale and reduces lost time. Trust must be established and expanded up and down throughout the organization.

Leadership: Leaders are responsible for being daily examples of the purpose and values that define the business, and for establishing and expanding trust throughout the business. The end result is an organization full of trusting and trustworthy people who want to contribute to its success.

Communication: Clear, accurate, timely and appropriate communication is what drives the successful outcomes regarding purpose, values, trust and leadership – communication through words and especially communication through actions.

The marketing point on the circle of business life is the place that generates and shares the messages about what the business stands for, how it conducts business, the benefits its products and services provide for its customers, and how it cares about and treats its customers. There could be other messages about how the business contributes to the community and worthwhile causes, how it positively impacts the environment, and more.

Marketing is about getting the right message in front of the right decision makers at the right time. There are many ways to deliver marketing messages. Deciding on the right methods for your business is one of the recommendations the marketing person, department or consultant needs to make. I have my favorite methods for my business. It’s up to you to decide what’s most effective for your business.

Selling follows marketing. Even though purchases of some products and services are made as a direct result of a great marketing message most products and services require a selling step before a decision is made. Effective selling requires the ability to ask the right questions in the right way at the right time to learn what’s most important for the decision makers when considering how your product or service will meet or exceed their criteria.

As part of the selling process decision makers usually want know about the business behind the product and how they’ll be treated after the purchase. A strong belief in the concepts mentioned at the beginning of this article will make this part of the selling process easy.

Production and fulfillment come next. This is a big category that varies greatly from business type to business type. Some products can be pulled out of inventory and delivered immediately. Other products require processes like determining a scope of work, design, production, and testing before delivery.

Some services can be scheduled and fulfilled in a short time frame. Others may have to consider compatibility with the customer’s current equipment, hardware, software, etc. before being implemented.

Regardless of the complexity of this process each and every step involves people in one way or another. The more strongly connected these people are to the core concepts that drive the business, the better the results produced.

Follow up and customer service are next. Checking in with your customers seven to ten days after they’ve received their products or used your services is a great habit to develop. Feedback of all kinds is invaluable. It helps you learn what’s perceived as good or bad about what you sell. It helps you change false perceptions. It helps you learn about potential new products or services. It helps you learn about your reputation and credibility.

Feedback is a gift. Be thankful when you receive it, ask for it when you don’t.

Monitor, evaluate and plan. These are ongoing processes that should be applied to every aspect of a business. These three simple steps create a focus on continuous improvement. A high level of trust promotes honesty in these processes which produces quality results.

This brings us back to marketing again and the circle of business life keeps on rotating.

One last thought – everything mentioned above is driven by people. None of these things work correctly without the right people. Hire carefully. Train thoroughly. Manage effectively. Grow your people to become successful as individuals and your business will reach levels of success beyond your expectations.

“I Want to Run My Own Business” – How to Write an Article on Home Based Business Life

When times are tough and during downturns in the business cycle there are more and more people who lose their jobs. These laid-off employees are looking for something else to do, knowing that it is not likely that they will get a job anytime soon. After all, when no corporations or small businesses are hiring every time there is a single opening, there are 500 applicants. Yes, it’s true that someone will get that job, but the chances are stacked against them; and they know it.

Many folks realize after they’ve been through a few negative economic cycles that they are tired of working for other people. They are tired of being laid off every time the economy turns south, what they really want is to have their own business, and they want a piece of the American dream, which they consider to be self-employment.

Now then, anybody who’s ever been self-employed knows it’s hard work, it is much easier to punch a time clock and collect a check in the end of every couple weeks. Nevertheless, many people still say; “I Want to Run My Own Business,” and because this is true it provides an excellent opportunity, an opportunity for online article authors to write Internet content and articles about home based business life.

You see, many of these people who will be starting their own businesses don’t have very much capital to get going, so about the only kind of business they’ll be able to start is one that they can do working at their own home, until they get going. Over the years, I’ve written nearly 50 articles on this topic, and I’d like to make some recommendations to you if you’d like to write on this topic as well.

First, it’s only fair to explain to people how hard it is to run their own business, and how hard it is to work out of the home when the family is there and how distracting it can be. Likewise, they need to understand that running your own business costs money up front, and there is no guarantee you will make a profit.

Further, they need to understand that just because they get a check in the mail, they still have to pay the bills associated with that company and their costs before they can write themselves a check. If you will include these reality checks in the articles you write for startup self-employed folks, you will be doing a service to your readers. And I hope you will do just that. Please consider all this.
