The Weekly – What is Your Plan for Q2?

Something that has helped me serve you as a reader, and my coaching and presentation clients, as well as those in our network, is having a plan.

Plans come in various forms and they are tweakable entities.

What is your plan for Q2?

Wanna look into what is working for us?

One of the team came up with a nifty idea a couple of years ago that we call, The 52 Week plan and as you can deduce, it’s a full year set out into 52 weeks. The beauty of doing this is that we have each month and each week numbered and we know the “Big” events as well as the small ones because everything is color coded.

And, it’s not all we need.

Mostly because looking that far out is kind of intimidating with all that time, and it’s easy when something is far enough away to put it in the back of your mind…

So we now break our 52-week plan into 13-week segments – or a quarter of the year and this is where the deep things happen, where the results are tracked and where we can put all the tasks to events and goals.

Here is something else we do that you might incorporate into your planning.

Forecast out 13 weeks – and ask yourself these questions

On X date (for this quarter it’s on June 30th)

I will feel extremely happy because X has happened –

X in my personal life

X in my relational life

X in my professional life or business

Then, get with someone on your team and work backward on all that must happen weekly to attain that goal.

Let me know how it goes or if you do something better. We are all about tweaking!

Here to serve,
Blessings, Shawna

The Weekly – Ask a Better Question, here’s how

Engaging with your clients is about asking

Easter is this Sunday and this is another opportunity to know your customers better, engage with them more and learn something that can help you.

It begins with a question and I’m going to give you a couple to use. I would love to hear about your results.

When you ask an open-ended question the things you learn about your customers is priceless.

So here are a couple of questions that will do several things.

  1. They will engage at a deeper level
  2. You can find out who your customer is and what they believe
  3. You may find a tradition or experience you want to do

Here you go:

How do you celebrate Easter?

What do you love most about the Easter holiday?

What is your favorite Easter memory?

Pick the one that resonates most with you, or use them all and uncover which one most people respond to best.

Depending on how they answer, you will collect valuable information about who your customers are and what they value.

They may share something that you want to try, and they will no doubt give you an opening to suggest something you provide that will fit into their thinking.

Let me know how it goes!

Happy Easter and I wish you also wonderful new beginnings.

Blessings,
Shawna

Pet Women Weekly – I couldn’t be more sincere!

Dear  Pet Lover,

My mastermind buddy Kevin, the last time we were together, mentioned something I’ve mulled over quite a bit.

He said, “Shawna, you are the only person I know who can tell so many different people you adore them, and mean it completely every time.”

I asked, “What are you trying to tell me, Kevin?”

He smiled and said, “It’s kinda crazy but I know you’re totally sincere and so it really works for you. I like it, and I like that you adore me too!”

Hmmm…. Do I really tell a lot of people I adore them? And do I actually adore them?

With the help of one of the virtues from Benjamin Franklin’s 13, I am looking at this habit, trait, feeling (whatever) of mine in a new way and here’s how it can be of benefit to you.

Ask yourself:  How do I really feel about my customers?

Please don’t answer this in a flippant or casual way. Several of my coaching clients have trouble with their team because some of their team is treating a customer like an interruption.

Some sales people believe that “All buyers are liars”

Sometimes it’s easier to love up the pets we relish serving and ignore or brush off the guardians who actually pay us.

So ask yourself honestly and sincerely: Do I like my customers? Dare we ask: Do I love my customers?

For me I do love them, I adore them and I tell them often and it’s completely, honestly true, which is why it seems to work.

Benjamin Franklin encourages us to: Think innocently and justly; and, if you speak; speak accordingly.

Well, are you sincere in treating your customers how you feel about them? And if you were honest in your answer, do you like, love, adore them?

And if not, why are you in this business? Just saying….

Adore serving you! And you know I mean it!

Blessings, Shawna

Pet Women Weekly – Are You Rightsizing Your Life?

Dear Pet Lover,

How do you keep things in order?

 It’s the end of May – 5 months flew by in 2017 and now it’s spring and some people do spring cleaning, how about you?

 The 3rd virtue from Benjamin’s 13 Virtues is about order. And what is order expect this – from Benjamin:

Order: Let all your Things have their Places. Let each part of your business have it’s time.

When working with my coaching clients we often speak about how they can re-order things in their lives and businesses to be more excellent, to be more productive, to enjoy more of the life they are creating.

 In hopes to keep you focused and in the ORDERLY mindset here’s a couple of things to think about and incorporate into your thinking and day:

 1. Is there a place for everything?

This is probably the best question to ask for every item you keep at home and work. If there isn’t a place for something, it’s the cue to get a place.

2. Do I need this?

One thing that I’m asking more and more is: Do I need what I’m about to purchase, or what I already have? What is happening more and more (that I ask the question) – is no, I really don’t and it’s such a freeing feeling!

3. What would make this better?

This is a question I ask a lot and one that helps me do things better, think through things clearer and produce better results. And if that’s not order, I don’t know what it.

These three questions help me RIGHTSIZE my work and life, as this month comes to a close, may it help you right size too.

 Blessings, Shawna
