Who else?

I’m going to let you listen in on a meeting I had yesterday with a client.

Who-wordWitness my brilliant, high-level coaching work in action :)

‘Who else?’

‘Ok. Who else?’

‘Good. Who else?’

‘Alright. Who else?’

‘Think hard… Who else?’

‘Look in that pile of folders… Who else?’


What we accomplished was taking his sales pipeline (21 prospects in all) that was in his brain and got it into a spreadsheet.

The next step will be to get it added into his Remodelers AutoPilot account so that everything is beautifully organized.

He’ll have his entire sales pipeline at his fingertips within seconds and have a toolbox of follow-up emails, postcards, and communications that he can send with a click.

No more leads slipping through the cracks. No more brain power being used trying to keep everything straight in his head.

No more, ‘Crap! I should really call them back.

Time spent getting this part of your business organized is as valuable as it gets. It gives you peace of mind and helps you close more sales.

Let me know if you are ready to get this part of your business organized once and for all or have any questions for me.

Go kick some butt today – focus hard on your most important work

Which side?

Are you going to choose the left side or right side?

No, I’m not talking about our presidential elections…

P.S. On another note: Dusting this off from back in early June. It’s Friday – a good day to reflect on these questions.

This Question Came To Me 3 Minutes Ago…

Blog Post Question MarkLet yourself think and dream a little bit…

FOR YOU: What does success look like?

To get your mind going:

  • What does your business look like? (i.e. employees, type of work/clients, revenue/profitability, etc.)
  • What work in the business do you focus on/not focus on?
  • What’s your work/life balance like?
  • How do things look with your closest relationships? (i.e. spouse, kids, close family/friends, your faith)

I know this is a big question, but don’t be intimidated by it.

Take a few minutes to write out your thoughts on this question – feel free to email me your reply. Would love to see it.

One Word Open

I’m about to meet with one of my Remodelers AutoPilot clients.

I’m going to start the meeting by asking:
one_word_open
“What’s your one word open?”

What they are answering is one word that comes to mind of how they are feeling right now.

I hear a wide range of responses:

“Frustrated. Excited. Tired. Worried. Calm. Anxious. Happy.”

The benefit of this is it gives me a quick pulse of the room.

What is your one word this morning?

Next time you get your team together – open the meeting this way so that you have a good feel for where everyone’s head is at.

It’s a nice way to ‘break the ice’ and get everyone talking/participating.

P.S. My one word this morning is ‘scattered
