What will the workplace look like post-COVID?

How much excess capacity exists in current commercial buildings? Most commercial buildings sit vacant for 12 hours out of the working day until the next day begins and 24 hours a day on weekends. If we are collectively reinventing what the new world looks like, we don’t have to use old models that no longer serve the greater good. The co-working model has been gaining ground with entrepreneurs for years. That same entrepreneurial thinking can guide the way for new spaces to optimize the space they need. As a result, we can streamline and maximize the buildings that exist.

How to Come Up with a Business Name – 10 Naming a Business Stories

Years ago, a mentor did an exercise with me where he asked me: “How do you make your clients heroic?” We discussed the many ways that I was seeking to fulfill that mission. He asked me to pull out a crisp sheet of paper and draw a heart on the right side of the paper. After hours of discussion, the three words that rang true for that mission: Enjoy Life Daily. They fit neatly inside the heart on the right side of the page. (Fun fact: Years later, I still have the sheet of paper.)

That heart and those words are symbolic of the heart I choose to support my entrepreneurial clients within their businesses. It’s a great daily reminder I have to share with entrepreneurs (and myself).

10 Productivity Tips For Digital Marketers To Save Time

Strategy work (for marketing, branding, selling, product development, etc.) takes deep concentration. There is significant research that states it typically takes 20-30 minutes to recover from each distraction. Each ding or ring on your phone causes you to lose concentration. Switching your brain, from strategy work to a sales call, to a financial question, back to strategy requires acclimation time. Too often, I hear entrepreneurs end their day saying “I know I worked all day and yet I’m not quite sure what I did.” Create boundaries to prioritize your day and consistently point the business needle towards growth goals.

14 Risks That Are Worth Taking

After growing up in Pittsburgh, PA, I left on January 20, 2002, to venture out west. I wanted to challenge my comfort zone and take on a new adventure. I loved my family and friends and left the known for the unknown. Moving from the East coast to the West coast mentally, I found it took me about 6 months to hit my stride at business, with friends and the new experiences in my new hometown. As a car guy, I enjoyed seeing all the modified cars and enjoyed waking up to the sun, virtually every day; a big change from the 300 days of clouds I was used to. The easy path, or the more challenging path…it’s our choice. While the easy path is much more comfortable, the challenging path is filled with adventure and amazing insights about ourselves.

10 Time Saving Tips For Small Business Owners

Silence your phone and put it in another room so you aren’t tempted to check it. Your brain is being hi-jacked with every beep, chirp, or buzz of your phone. Yes, your attention and awareness are being stolen from the present moment each time you check for the next message. Deep work requires attention and focus. Blocking off time helps you discover deeper issues to “surface-level problems.” This results in developing long term sustainable solutions.

12 Stress Management tips for Business owners
My day begins a little after 5:00 am with mindset routines to prepare myself for what may come up throughout the day. I have practiced meditation, yoga, and journaling for over 10 years. Meditation helps to clear my mind and practice presence. I strive to carry that presence in each interaction throughout my day. I discovered yoga in 2003 and it’s my go-to exercise because yoga has no scoreboard; it’s simply me and my mat. Lastly, I began journaling in 2008 to capture gratitude, clarify challenges and celebrate wins. These mindset routines prepare me for the rest of the day, where I track and “keep score” for things pertinent to my business.

9 types of email marketing campaigns to consider sending

Years ago, after listening to many prospects inside of a specific industry, I heard a very consistent phrase, month after month. It didn’t matter if I was talking to someone in Seattle, or Pennsylvania, or New Mexico… this consistent phrase was said the same way across the various roles, inside this specific industry. An email campaign began with that consistent phrase reframed as a question in the subject line. As a result, the long tail sales cycle time went from 9 months to a little over 2 months.
