Everyone has dreams, visions of success... A good job, a nice family, nice people, nice work, nice house...
But that is not what people have... When you ask people what made them who they are today, invariably all of them answer a version of the same thing: The past.
How they express this varies: my parents, my schooling, what I have been doing, my genes, etc. etc. but all in all, they all mean the same: what makes me who I am today is the past.
If that were true, that would be bad news, really.
Imagine that it is true. Now see yourself trying to be successful online. Given your track record, and your genes, and your past behavior, how much chance do you have for success?
I'd love to say zero, but it would be unfair to many of you. So instead, I answer it in a way that applies to all of you:

Now, that is a total bummer, isn't it? Continue reading "Will You Succeed or Will You Fail in business or pretty much any other endeavor?"
And the picture of putting all those starting point measurements also tells me how humanity as a whole is doing.

Who is my ideal client? It matters not what you say, it matters more if it is heard by the right people...
I have been asking this question for a few years now.
Marketing teachers tell me to find people who are kept awake at night by something that nag at them, that doesn't let them sleep... a problem, an itch that cannot be scratched. I am not attracted to the suffering.
I want to expand my business to start selling "stuff".
But what stuff shall I sell and to whom?

Stuck in a rut? Would you like to find your way out?
First off: You are not alone.
My coaches, mentors, teachers, friends, and clients are stuck too, from time to time.
Take one of my teachers: she has been dealing with some downward spirals, that completely felt as something that has no solution.
Their expensive, and almost brand new RV suddenly needed major repair, and the funds weren't there.
To add insult to injury, there started to be some legal issues, then health issues... so it looked bleak, and devastating.
In our conversation I went through a series of tools I have in my tool-box... and when I got to the question: do you know the 9-dot exercise, the light bulb went off for my teacher, and she came up with a solution that, if not solved it, made the situation bearable.
So what is this tool box, and what do the 9 dots mean? How can YOU use this to get out of a predicament, a situation that seems to have no solution:
