My business keeps changing!
Right when I feel like things are heading down the tracks in one direction, up comes a fork in the road. Six months ago I made the bold decision to just connect with people that I wanted to work with. Previously I had spent most of my time making phone calls to people I didn’t know. I spent 90% of my time on 10% of my business. I decided I would give up that 10% and focus on the 90% of where my business came from- people I already know. Moving to the direction of connecting and maintaining relationships with my current friends and family has really brought me the satisfaction I’ve been looking for in my business. The outcome has been great so far. I’m able to spend my time now with people who already trust me. My next move is going to be a bit different. I want to connect with other business owners and leaders in my local community. I’ve decided to start a podcast. Podcast, you may be thinking? A podcast is basically a radio show but it’s recorded and not live. People subscribe online and listen to them at their own leisure. Eugene Advice Givers was born in the process of determining how to accomplish this goal. My plan is to interview business owners, thought leaders and other influential people in the Eugene area. I’ve committed to doing two per month. Once I figure the system out, then I would like increase it to one to two per week. I’ll post the website in my next newsletter for you to listen. It’s really great when you have the time and energy to determine the direction you want to take your business. I plan to stay on track and see what the next year brings to the Grand Realty.
