Great Power in Brainstorming!

I have always felt very accustomed to brainstorming as a way to grow business directives.  I felt like I have spent ample time solving challenging situations, finding new ways of doing things and coming up with alternate plans in this process.  I was involved (and continue to be involved) in a group that consistently uses brainstorming as a way for the group members to help each other; and I continue to be amazed at the power that it gives me. 

The trick to brainstorming is to write down EVERYTHING that comes to mind without judgement or notions.  After you perform the first part of this type of session; then is the time to edit and decide which of your items you can take action on.  I was amazed today in the brainstorming that I did with my group, because we came up with things that I NEVER would have thought would work, and voila, I found evidence of effectiveness and productivity.

So, everyone…take out your flip charts or your white boards; your crayons and your markers; Write the issue that you are trying to solve at the top of the paper or the board; and then clear your mind.  Say the issue or challenge that you have written at the top of the page OUT LOUD.  Then as words or phrases start flying into your head space, write them down as fast as you can-again, don’t think about it or judge it, just do it.  You will be amazed at what appears on that paper.

Pick one or two of those items (the best ones of course) to implement.  Then enjoy your success as you continue to grow and explore the possibilities of unlimited beliefs.

Keeping things Simple

I have such an incredible opportunity to spend quality time with business owners who have a drive for success. I also spend time with people who have great ideas and could really capitalize on their talent, but don’t because of Fear. The first thing I can tell you is the only difference between these two types of people, is that the business owners had the same fear, and overcame it with the first step.

Do not feel like you have to conform into some business plan or creative idea right away. When I started my business plans, I simply asked myself business related questions. What services would I provide (and how much revenue would I get from those services?) Where would I get my clients (how could I find my audience, and who was my target audience?) and how would I manage the process (I identified the tools and good habits that I needed to form). That is what started my ability to focus on my business; and create momentum to open others. Have you ever heard the phrase, “keep the main thing, the main thing?”. That phrase is what helps me keep my focus. Writing this blog monthly, reminds me that I sometimes run into challenges too. I deal with those challenges head on, and remember how a lack of action would affect my income streams.

I appreciate this opportunity to share infomration with you. My initial consultations are free, and I love to help new businesses start out the right way. Call me today and I will help you get on your way and reduce your fear!
