Emerge – Dominate the Room You Are In!

Emerge – Dominate the Room You Are In!

“If you want to be taken seriously, be consistent!” ~ Unknown

Here is a hard truth to handle for most entrepreneurs…

You are leaving money and opportunities on the table everyday! Ask yourself this question and give yourself an honest answer. Are you dominating the rooms you are in both in person and virtually?

Power of Why with Grace Pamela The #SpeakEasy Podcast

Our Power of Why statement will be the driving force of our success or our failure. You will and must have something that pushes you to move when things get tough. It also sets a foundation for how you determine your value in three main areas. Time Energy FinancesMany of the people who have become successful will have a "Power of Why" story that made them go for the opportunity one more time. There is a higher level of creativity achieved when you are determined to win. That being said, a why that lacks deep roots will surely be carried away during your entrepreneurial journey. This Power of Why series captures the candid responses from several coauthors of the Power of Why Volume 2 anthology. These entrepreneurs are from different ends of the earth with varying levels of experience that extend over 30 years. It is time for you to experience something greater through the eyes of women and men who are at the level where you are trying to go. Join the co-authors: https://www.purvitantia.com/tpow2-altovise-pelzerA valuable lesson I learned in business was to make things clear because a confused mind will not buy. Even recently, I have seen that there are entrepreneurs that do not have clarity in their business. You should be able to:Cleary say what you doClearly say what you offer Clearly say who you serve Clearly state your boundaries This is the shortlist but that clarity will help you to have a better customer journey and peace of mind. Without that clarity, you will find yourself swaying back and forth with each client. This is NOT the place where you want to be as an entrepreneur. EVER! In this episode, we spoke to Grace about her journey and how her why made her gain some clarity in her business. Grace's nuggets: ~ Focus is important and without it, the background will drown out what you want to focus on~ Have people around you that push you to come outside your comfort zone ~ A gratifying part of the process is seeing the completed project – don't quit ~ Think outside the box and find how you can face change instead of fearing it~ "Not anybody could be a photographer by just taking a snapshot, but anybody can be an artist" ~ Grace I think we have seen evidence over time that no matter what resources you have…you can create art Being able to adapt and adjust gives you a different perspective on your gifts and talents. It strengthens you and that strength can carry you through the tougher moments in your journey. Do you know what you have to offer? Have you clearly evaluated your strengths?

Be honest!

This episode was a personal, and professional, chastising for me but I’ll let you in on the conversation. I received an email from PodBean about live-streaming and it peaking my interest. Since The #SpeakEasy Podcast started as a livestream on Facebook this would be perfect.

Then it happened…I went to the site and noticed that I had not claimed my podcast. Omg!! I signed up for the site years ago but I was not using everything it had to offer. (How many can relate on one level or another?) Once I claimed my show I saw an opportunity to market through PodBean.

Oh, if you connect with us on PodBean we’ll follow you back. Let’s grow together!

So how do we show up and dominate the room?

– Lead with service

Don’t be one of “those entrepreneurs” that show up with a product to sell but no conversation. When you lead with a mindset of service it takes the expectation off of the other person and puts it squarely on you. So now you become “the plug” for someone in the room and that word of mouth spreads. (Often times it will spread quicker than we could imagine)

– Have conversations within the community

Here is one that I had to work on for years. As an introvert, I often found myself wanting to stay to myself. What shifted for me was finding great ways to have a conversation. I give some tips on how I start conversations as an introvert in my book “Plug In: 25 Power Networking Tips for Introverts, Startups and the Success Obsessed. (Purchase a copy of the ebook here: bit.ly/pluginmyvoice) Something as simple as what you put on your nametag or on your zoom nametag can make a huge difference.

– Ask questions

Polls and questions are like vitamins for business. Most don’t understand the power they have until they start using them. You will see an influx of answers that will lead to more products and services that you can offer and potential customers who want it. Be careful though. Too much of many things can become hazardous. Develop a strategy for how you will dissect the information that you attain from the polls and questions so you do not become overwhelmed.

– Follow up and then follow up again

You know what they…the fortune is in the follow up. I’m not only referring to you following up when it comes to customers either. Follow Ups should occur with hosts of events, speakers, and the people you have networked with. This keeps you fresh in their minds and vice versa. You never know when you may be able to refer one of them for an opportunity

– Be consistent in your actions, service and engagement

When we create a strategy for how we show up online and offline it sets the standard. Social media has shrunk the seven degrees of separation to three within the span of a few years. That means that you can connect with almost anyone when you execute at the highest level.
