Is your name important to you?

+Preston Odenbrett

How many of you like your name, how many of you love your name? I am almost sure that most of you love your name because it is a name that has been with you all your life. Right? So then the next question is what about your business name?

If you love your business name and you want to bring your business to the "next level" please read on.

I just witnessed a demonstration by a good mentor to me J.J. Ulrich that talked about something that he has been creating in his mind for years. I am not sure if you are like him and me, but if you have been self-employed back in the 1990's you will follow this story. If you are not, I will get you caught up.

Back in the 90's when I was in the advertising business producing a coupon-advertising paper that went to the local community, I would have never dreamed that I would be a position today that can not only revolutionize my business but my clients as well.

I just witnessed a new way of doing business that "blew my mind" that I can't even go to sleep. Back to my story:

I started out with a notepad, pens and walked the street. I talked to every single business owner I could from dawn to dusk. I created relationships that I still have today because of my hard-work and my tenacity to never give up.

I have been through many industries and seen many tools that can help create efficiencies in my business. Now I know this will date me, but like I said for the younger crowd, I will catch up in a hurry.

Here is what I used to create my contacts, create business and to create a living for my family.

  • Notepads/Pencils/pens
  • Sticky pads
  • Note cards
  • Daily planner- ( Day-Timer, Franklin Planner)
  • Spreadsheets- Excel, Word, Powerpoint
  • Database- (Act and some others I can't even remember)
  • Telephone - Dial
  • Cell phone ( Huge)
  • Smart-Phone
  • Desk-top computer
  • Laptop
  • Database integrated software for Blackberry, Nokia, Android
  •  Online systems like Sales Force/ Act Online  
Just to name a few tools - does this list look familiar? Why did I need all of these tools, because anytime you have job you need the right tools for the job. You have to invest in something and spend time teaching yourself or going to classes to learn all of it.

Well what if you could have all of this in one easy to use portal, What if you could create time for your self so you can spend time with your family- How about spending time with your wife instead of your computer or your kids instead of the smart phone.

Want your name to stand out amongst the crowd? If you do, watch this video and then pre-register by clicking on the graphic below before your competitor finds out about this. Oh, did I mention it is available for any budget.

Thanks for your time today! Happy 2013 in your business and your life.

Team Work and a great Feature with G+ and Blogger

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Years with your family and friends. My motto for 2013 is going to be "Be free in '13".

I was very busy in December and I did not have a chance to even do a post for this blog. What can I say, I was traveling a lot and the internet was a bit slow to be able to do this, I was with family most of the time and that was worth it. I know being in business- balance is key- but that is for another blog down the road.

However, with that said my goal is to do one of these blogs a week. I will talk about more tools that you can use using our new system from my team that is going to be released soon, I am creating new videos right now that I will share with you here on the blog.

Back to team work. I wanted to let you know my brother in law a few weeks back did a very fun exercise. He told all of us to go back to the room and each person stand on a tile. Note the tile is a regular size tile and each person would stand on it. He then said , everyone that is on a square, invite another person to your square and make sure you feet are within the square no part of people can touch or be outside of that square.

With 2 people in a square it is very tough, but then he went one step further. Everyone that is in a square with  2 invite another person in to your square. We now have 3 people in this square. Then he did this until we had 5 people in the little square. What does this have to do with team work? Well, try it, you have to rely on everyone in that square, you need to be close to each other, you need to hold each other accountable to make you don't fall off that square. You need to be creative in understanding how each of you works to hold everything together. You have to keep holding each other physically in order for all of you not to topple over.

Many people have asked me, how did some people get 5 people in the square, well what I didn't tell you is that some people had kids and guess where the kids went? The men put them on top of their shoulders, thus gaining more space in the square. So even the little ones can help your team more then you think. Don't ever eliminate people from your team because you don't think they will ever do anything, those are the ones that more then likely will help you in the future.

If you enjoyed this, please pass on to your colleagues, they will be very happy that you thought of them, especially if they want the perfect team in their business or organization.
