I am passionate about helping people accomplish their lifelong dreams and goals to ATTRACT. RECRUIT. LEAD with the best best Online and Offline Marketing Strategies and Skill Sets for Success as a 30 year personal success coach, inspirational public speaker..
Hey guys, it’s Ann Feinstein, Creator of AnnFeinstein.com, and today I have a really hot tip for you and this is one of those great tips relating to a super communication tool. If you haven’t heard of zoom, you’ve got to look into this and go to zoom.us. It’s a platform, a simple platform that allows you to actually have face to face communication with people, whether it’s a potential customer, our current customer or someone that you’re talking to about your business. Uh, I’ve used it for planning sessions with a group of people. I’ve used it actually for presentations on a larger scale and also for trainings of the team. I tell you I’m excited about this because I remember, you know, with all the other tools that we’ve had prior to this, it was always more complicated to be able to do a Webinar, especially for a specific group of people.
So the idea here is that with zoom you can actually create a schedule very simply. By the way, zoom, you can get a free account or you can upgrade as you play around with it for awhile. You probably want to upgrade it, it’ll give you a little more futures. It’s running something like 14, $15 a month, so it’s a really good investment for Your Business and what I love about it is that I can do a variety of different things with zoom and what I love the feature most of all is the fact that I can share screens, so if I’m talking to a potential customer or someone that I’m talking to about our business than I can bring up a screen. I can bring up a video or I can show them a product or I can discuss with them something that I think is important for them to take a look at.
So you have the feature there of being able to share screens and that’s really incredible because even if you have your mobile phone and a lot of us have facetime, the iphone is can talk to the iphones, but the androids can’t talk to the iphones and so it becomes a little more difficult. Yeah. There are some other tools that you could do on a one to one basis, but what I love about the zoom is that you can actually bring a team of people together more than one person, so you can do a three way conversation with someone. Okay? Which is great if you’re talking to a potential customer or a potential new team member with one of your team members, this is a great platform to do that. You can also do some trainings as well as larger events. Okay? Where you’ve made invite more than two or three people.
Um, the great thing about it is that you can schedule an event. So if you know something that’s coming up in a couple of days, you can actually go to the little simple scheduler that’s on the right panel and you can actually go there and set up a schedule and send out the link to your team. Uh, which is wonderful. You can do an immediate, you know, you’re on the phone with someone. Say, hey, you know, jump on skype. I’ll send you the link to jump on zoom. I’ll send you the link and you can just send them over to the link and they can hop right on. It’s a simple, simple, simple connection for them and so I find it really, really helpful. And if you want to even record a particular session, you can record it and you can save that. So there’s a lot of applications here guys, and it’s so, so simple to use.
So get yourself over to zoom.us, uh, get yourself a free account, play around with it. If you take your cursor and put it down at the bottom of the screen, you’ll see there are a few other features there like the share I was telling you about and I have my notes here on my computer now and I was looking at it just to prepare to talk with you about it. Uh, but there’s a variety of different features at the bottom, such as I’m inviting people. If you want to invite someone real quick to come to the meeting, you can also manage the participants. So if you want everyone to go mute, you can mute them out. If you have a disruptive situation, you can actually, you know, toss them out a share screen, you can chat while you’re doing a presentation and people can and you can invite people to put questions and as I mentioned, you can record it. So it’s a really, really cool tool. And coming from a time period in the past where communication was so expensive, I mean today, to have this kind of a tool is just absolutely awesome. So check it out and I’ll continue to give you these kinds of tips as we continue to do our trainings on skillsets for your success. So have a great day ahead and as I tell you every day, just go out there and be amazing. Bye for now.
Hey guys, it’s Ann Feinstein here and I’m excited about today’s topic for, for, for hot tips to really spruce up your profile, expand your audience and to boost your connections and so we’re excited to get you on here today because actually I’ve been working with a couple of coaching clients and also some of our team members and taking a really, really good look as to what people are actually posting on their facebook profiles. And the reason for that is that as you know today, more and more people are using their facebook profiles for building their business. It could be your own home based business. It could be a service, a product. It could be, you know, some of the things that people are doing today in order to create a secondary incomes as well as you know, full blown businesses using their profile, sometimes even more so.
They’re using their business pages. So what are the. Take a few moments and really talk about this today because it’s a really, really important topic and I hope I can give you some great tips on how you can actually boost these activities that are going on. And so I see we have. Hi honey. Hi Xena. Hi David. Hi Denise. Good to see all, uh, wanted to drop by this afternoon as I said, to talk about these really important issues. And so we’ll. Lot of people are using facebook profiles for their business. And that’s the people I’m talking to today. So first of all, as you go down and look at a facebook profile, the first thing you’re going to notice if somebody’s picture, OK? And I want you to think about the picture that you’re posting across the, the cover page. Know that big, big, beautiful picture at the top.
What is it saying about you? OK, what kind of a message? What are values that you’re looking at? What do people see about you? Because honestly, guys, if it’s just a, a landscape, it’s really not telling enough. Um, if it’s just a picture that you’ve pulled out of Google or someplace else that you happen to, like, or even a picture that you took, put yourself in the picture. People like to see real people and they like to see real people and to see what’s really, really important to them. Hi Barbara. Good to see you. So my suggestion is go take a look at your profile page. What is that big cover page saying about you? You know, if you’ve got kids and you’re married and you love to travel and you love to do fun things together, a post a picture up there and let people see who you are.
I go there all the time and I look at the facebook profiles before I speak to someone so I get a sense of who they are. I get a sense of who the who the person is that I’m talking to. The same thing goes for your profile picture, that tiny little picture, OK? If you’re doing business online, people want to see who they’re doing business with. My suggestion is that you take a really nice picture, you know, have a full face so people can really see who you are. They see the, you know, the expression, your smile, you’ve got to, you know, a nice upbeat personality, that sort of thing. Uh, the other day have someone who was writing about, you know, wanting to, uh, to, to do something that was looking for a secondary income and she posted this post in a group that I’m in and it’s actually a women’s group that I’m in.
And I got laughing about it because I went to her profile. She said she’s looking for something secondary to do. She’s looking for a side, a side hustle, as they say. And her profile was a picture of a horse. That’s it. The profile picture was a picture of a horse. So as we, I scrolled further down, I’m looking further down to see, well, what else would I find out about or to see what her interests are. There was nothing other than pictures of the same course. Now I’m saying to myself, first of all, is this person real? Secondly? OK, why are they, why are they hiding behind? OK? Having a picture of just their horse. Now I’m all for, as you can tell, I’m an animal lover. I love my dogs and every once in awhile I’ll post a picture of my dogs, but my dogs are not my profile picture.
So my suggestion is that if you’re really seriously doing business online, think about that, that big beautiful a space that you have at the top of your profile for a beautiful cover picture. Think about the space that you have, you know, in your profile, what is it saying about you? And then as you go further down, OK, in the, in the information you can put in there, you can talk about and give a small introduction. You don’t need to get your whole resume. Just tell them a little bit about you. You know, what is it that turns you on? What is it about you? OK? Whether it’s your interests. If you’re a mom, if you’re, you know, you’ve got four kids. I’m a mom to five. I’m happily married. I love training and teaching and helping people to create profitable home based businesses. So that’s what I wrote in my profile in my little intro.
OK? Put something in there so people get a snapshot of what it is. And what you’re interested in. So that gives you my first tip. My second tip is of course, in addition to the intro, use your real name. It’s amazing how many people start using fictitious names or weird names are strange names or whatever when in essence their name and that profile picture are going to be like their virtual business card. OK guys who keep that in mind. And that’s really, really important. The second thing is you want to make sure that you have all of your settings set to public. If you’re doing business online, you want people to be able to go in there and to be able to comment on the things that you’re, you’re posting to be able to friend you, OK? To be able to send things back and forth.
So make sure it’s amazing how many people I saw have private and private settings set up when they’re trying to do business online. OK? So go into into your setting section and make sure that’s listed as public. My third tip to you is, as I said before, at a previous post, choose your target audience. Who is it that you want to attract? If you have a particular business interest, you have to sit down like any business, major company, Major Corporation, they put together who is their target customer, who is the, who are the people that they want to attract? And so my suggestion is if you haven’t done this yet, go back to one of my posts down below where I actually helped you to identify with 10 simple steps to identifying the perfect target audience for you and guys that you’ve seen that. OK, give me a couple of hearts because I’ll tell you honestly, I’ve gotten so much feedback from that particular post helping people to really discover who it is that they want, OK?
To get to connect to. And so having a target audience, you deciding who is just wanting to help, OK, who is it that you’re reaching out to? What is, what is their personality like? What are their deaths a day like? What are their pains? What are their dreams? OK, how can your product, your service, your business help them? OK, what are the benefits? Not the features, but what are the benefits that you could offer to someone. So I think it’s really, really important that you have a targeted audience in mind and that you are creating content, OK, and providing information to them when your profile page that’s going to help to attract them to you, but it’s a very important piece. And so my fourth is to post with intention of value. And when they say posts with intention to value guys, I mean, thinking about this, you know, you’re not just sharing, you know, random stuff, but you’re actually thinking about, you know, you yourself, that your interests, what did, what kind of people that attract, OK, what are things that are important to you?
What are some exciting or relevant articles that you could, you know, again, repost, but with your personal content in there. OK, when I see people on their profile pages, you know, sharing other people’s stuff over and over and over again, or just putting up those means or just, you know, transferring pictures without any content. It doesn’t tell anything about you. OK? People want realistic connections. They want to know how you feel about, they want to know, you know, what are your thoughts about something about a particular article that you’re writing or you know, any type of information that you’re posting on your, on your profile that’s relevant, OK, that talks a little either about something you’re interested in, it relates to the product or the business that you’re involved in and of course it’s going to be targeted to your audience. So guys, those are the four important points that I wanted to get across to you.
And I was listening to a young gal this morning who was, had posted something on her facebook posts she did alive and she said something very interesting. She said, the day that she decided to use to get into business for herself and to use her profile in building her business. She sat down and she looked through her entire, you know, the last, certainly the last year or so, the type of posts that she had put on her facebook wall and she sat down and she realized, you know, were there negative things. She got rid of them. Were there things there that were controversial? She got rid of them. OK. Were there things there that she didn’t want people to really talk about or this or it wasn’t relevant to where she wasn’t where she wanted to go. She got rid of it. So I’m gonna suggest that to you that you take a look at OK, the type of posts that you have, the type of posts that you’ve put up recently in the past and say to yourself, is this what I want to get across?
Is this going to help me to attract the type of people that I want to be able to bring to me, to boost my audience, to be able to make better connections and to really upgrade my profile and to do some really incredible things. So with that, maybe I think we’ve covered it all. I want to say thank you and great to see you, Christina and Kiley and Viviana and Mr Victor and. Hi, how are we? Good to see you two guys. It’s so awesome. OK to be here tonight with you, have a chance to share some of these Austin posts and tips, and if you had any other tips to add below, please go ahead and do so because this whole entire process of learning how to use social media and how to use facebook and how to be more effective in doing great things on social media is really what I’m all about and I really want to set that out and help you become even more successful and have a lot more fun. So with that, maybe we’re going to say bye for now. Have a great week ahead and we’ll be back here real soon.
Hey I’m Ann Feinstein and I hope you’re having a great Sunday evening. Uh, we show our, we’ve had a great day today. We’ve been spending some time to get there and been doing some interesting in studying and doing some really great things in preparing for the weekend. Um, I just got off the phone with a very dear friend of mine who was absolutely stumped on what to post and I gotta tell you something. I said the hi, good to see you. Hi. So good to see you. Uh, have to laugh because I’ve been there. I’ve sat in front of a screen and thought what am I going to post today? Whether it’s on my facebook page that you’re on right now or over on my fan page which is and Feinstein Fan page. You can find that too. And, and, uh, we were sitting there talking and I said, you know, you’ve got to think about your posts as creating value.
Now when you talk about that, in other words, there are some components as to what do you want to get across to the people in your audience. It could be family, it could be friends, it could be business contacts that you have, friends that you have in the profession, in the industry on. Hi Sandy could see hi David. Good to see you. And so we’re sitting there and we’re throwing ideas back and forth and came up with six different five or six different things that I thought I’d share with you. First of all, we were going talking back and forth and I found over the years and since I started posting on facebook that there is a hierarchy of posts that will be seen and some of those postings are just so you know, things that you write that today, the way the algorithms are, they seem to be the lowest and I think most of you agree.
Hi Cindy. Hey Marco. Hire new deca higher open to see guys get here on that Sunday night to yep, this is me, me say hi Mimi. So you’re talking about regular posts and that’s where you’re just writing something out, something inspirational. Then there’s the means and that’s those neat little inspirational things that you might find on the internet, on Google or you know, you’re searching around somebody else, share something that inspires you, and I just did that yesterday was one of my posts, you know, talking about taking steps even if it’s just baby steps, but doing something to move yourself forward. Then there’s the videos that you do where you do them offline and you post them online and then there’s what we’re doing right now and that’s a live and that seems to have the greatest traction. Now. I know for a lot of people that’s also probably their biggest obstacle.
Like, oh my goodness. How many of you have ever said to yourself, give me a one. OK, if you’ve ever said, oh my gosh, I don’t know if I could go live because I’m going to tell your story, and that is the first time that I was asked to do a training and to go live. OK. I actually took me, me with me and sat there in front of the camera because I was shaking. I had no saliva left in my mouth and it was one of those moments. So if you’ve had that kind of an experience, give me a one a. Then we were sitting there talking about the kinds of things that are really, really, really important when you’re thinking about value. And so if you want to jot these down, you might find it helpful. I sciatica wrote down one. Yeah, for sure.
It was really something else. And I’m going to actually do a couple of posts this week and talking a little bit about how to get yourself in the right frame of mind for doing a live and the kinds of things that you probably want to look at and get ready and prepare for it. And then just get out there and dive in and do a live. So I’ll. Good Sandy. Good for you. You finally did it. Bravo. So the first thing I think about is a number one doesn’t motivate cases as opposed to I’m about to put online. Does it motivate? Doesn’t inspire someone, doesn’t get them, you know, a thought process that’s going to take them somewhere in whether their life give them, uh, something that’s going to give them something that inspires them beyond their current state that they’re in, their mental state, their emotional state, their physical state.
So does it motivate or does it inspire? The second thing, I look at it and I say, does it educate? So a lot of the things that I like to do online because um, my teaching background is that I like to educate and I’d like to find topics that relate to me personally that relate to the business that I’m involved with and my profession so doesn’t educate. That’s the second thing you ask yourself when you’re talking about value. The third thing I think about is does it entertain OK? Well, it’s Sunday night. So we’re in the mode, we’re in the mode to entertain a little bit. Certainly as you’re going about your day, you’re having a fun day and I hope you’re home with your family. So I looked back at a video that I posted, I think sometime in the fall and it was just this little video that I happen to have caught one of my other Yorkies, her name is Gigi looking up at me and I captured this unbelievable little segment and I posted it online just kind of frivolously to see a share with some of my friends who know that, you know, we have a whole Yorkie house here and today I looked and she has 2100 views.
Yes. Can you believe that? Twenty 300 views. So there are a lot of people out there who just absolutely love their pets and got a kick out of her little expression who she was. And so for me, that’s about entertainment. Uh, the fourth thing is does it share something about you well, could share something about you, your family, your likes and things that you do, the things that you enjoy spending time with and sharing with friends and family. You know, this doesn’t share something about you because today it’s about getting real. And that was something that I had to overcome a bit because, um, you know, coming from a generation that you got dressed up to go out and my mother would say to me, you know, if you’re going out to put your best foot forward, you know, dress up, fix up and do so and today, it’s a more relaxed environment.
You know, it’s just about, you know, your ups or downs, you challenges the things that you go through. People want to see realness, OK, that’s the real thing today. And then the sixth thing is, does it create curiosity? Does it create curiosity about you? Something about your business, something about, you know, the things that you’re doing in your life so that somebody comes back to you and says, what is it that you do, you know, as opposed to throwing links all over the place or plastering your wall with pictures of your products. Which, you know, a lot of times all it does is turns people off or it gets them thinking about the fact that you’re just, you know, on your wall and you’re just spamming one after, one after, one after. So those are the different things that I think about the five key elements for value when you’re looking to make a post online and I hope that was a value to you, if it to be thought about some of these things and you’ve had that moment with the blank screen, just give me A.
I’ve been there on the screen below because I can tell you that there have been so many times that I’ve sat there and tried to think of something that I could pass on a value to someone else. And I hope that thinking through these things, you know, does it motivate? Does it inspire, does it educate, does entertain, does it tell something about you and does it create? Curiosity is going to give you a great couple of ideas for the week ahead. So guys, have a great Sunday night. Mimi, say goodbye to everyone. We’re going to go grab some dinner with David and uh, we love you guys. See, during the week and if you want you to drop over at my fanpage because I’m loading up some really dynamic trainings over firstname.lastname@example.org, forward slash and Feinstein fan page. So see you guys. Have a great week ahead. Bye for now.
Ann: Hey guys, it’s Ann and David Feinstein. I hope you’re having a great day. Uh, we’re certainly having a great day here. Would love to have you all check in with us. It’s kind of cool having you with me tonight on this live event. Uh, for the most part, David and David Feinstein, David, usually the behind the scenes guy and tonight we were talking a lot actually about this whole business of working together, you know, are having a home based business and working together. Hi Natalie. Hi John. My Peter, uh, and you know, the kinds of things that we’ve gone through working together. We’ve been married now for 34 years. Guys, it’s exciting to have a chance for if the two of us to be together on a live. It’s usually me in front of the camera. And David behind the camera tonight were together. Ah, and so tonight we really wanted to talk about this whole idea of being working a working couple and that may mean that you’re both doing the business together or a business together.
Ann: In our case, it’s a home based business and network marketing business or it may mean that one of you is the active person. Hey Jeff, good to see you. A high referral. Hi. Are you good to see you. It also may mean that one of you is active in the business and the other one is the supportive person in the business. So we’re going to kind of talk about both sides of that. But to start I thought it would be fun just to kind of give you a little idea as to, you know, our backgrounds and as I mentioned, we’ve been together now Mary for 34 years and 30 of those years have been together in a home business. Um, it didn’t start out that way as a matter of fact. Uh, I was a teacher in my earliest part of my profession and David,
David: business manager representing a lot of American and British celebrities and having a wonderful, wonderful business, very successful at the business.
Ann: And we met because I got into corporate consulting in Manhattan and as a matter of fact, my boss was a client of David’s from. So that’s how we met and it was interesting because back then I’m watching David and I had so much respect for the fact that he owned his own business, you know, but with that came
David: 13 staff employees, major overhead office expenses. But again, a successful business
Ann: looking at that and saying, you know, I want my own business. I want to be able to get out of that trap of the 60 to eighty hours working. And I was working at that time and the Manhattan in Manhattan where we met, uh, in a 40 story office building, feeling like a prisoner. And I said to David, I said, we had this beautiful house out in New Jersey, uh, with the grass and the trees and the things that I really loved. And he came to love as. He got to know our family and we had this beautiful home out there. But we get out there only on the weekends. And it was about, you know, coming out there on the weekends, taking a deep breath, decompressing and running back into Manhattan. And I said to him, there’s gotta be a business, a way for me to be able to segway into having my own business.
Ann: At that time there were slim pickens, and so it’s kind of interesting because I took a course. I was really into the whole spirit of learning entrepreneurship and beginning to really understand, you know, what it took for David to have his own business. And so I took a week long course that was an opportunity to spend a week with a millionaire. And during that week I was learning about mindset and vision and having big shoulders in order to be able to create the kind of a inner strength and power posture in order to be able to create something. And it was during that week that I was actually introduced to network marketing. Now I came home like an electric a blender. I was so excited and I came home and I was telling David, I said, I found the business model that I want. I can continue my career. I can do this on a part time basis. I can build it. And I looked at him right in the eye and I said, honey, this will be our retirement now, this was 30 years ago, this will be our retirement. And I loved what he said to me because in that moment and seeing how excited I was, he was so supportive. And what did you say?
Ann: Go make money. You know, he said, go out there and do it and be successful and I’ll be your greatest cheerleader. So one of the lessons that we learned as we got working, we’d be on working together and I hope these lessons that we’re going to talk about tonight can be beneficial for you whether you’re working together in your business, you know, both of you running it together. Hi, good to see you. Hi Angela. Good to see you. And Hernandez. Good to see you. Or if you’re doing this, where one of you is the person that’s the lead in the business. And the other one is the support factor. And frankly that’s how it started for us. As I always said, David was the most amazing person to work with. He was a. He really saw this as my business initially, but he was so supportive and it came down to, even during our previous professional life, I always went with him to all the great music festivals and the music entertainment evenings that his clients had.
Ann: And you always came with me to all the corporate things that I was doing. So, uh, the, the, the respect, they exactly I was even way before. So, you know, the idea of being able to do this together and finding a business that we could do together. Hey Barry, good to see you. The fact is, is that as time went on, um, you realize that, you know, one of us was leading this business. It was me. And so it was really cool about it, is that David was the total support person. Now what is the support person to the support person is the one that is, you know, cheering you on, giving you a lot of encouragement, you know, giving you the sense that you can do this. Uh, in our case, David was also setting up rooms for us at the time, whether it was our home for home meetings or whether it was hotel issues at the time, doing all the logistics for the, for us, for our team, for whatever was necessary.
Ann: And the thing that really, really clinched it. And this is a lesson for everyone if you’re going to do this business together. Uh, hi Ben. Good to see you if you’re gonna do this together. The first thing that we did when we really looked at this was we sat down and talked about a vision. We talked about what it was that we wanted to do together and we talked about how we could achieve this if we were putting our efforts together, whether I was running it full time and he was supportive because we ran into some, you know, interesting conflict. Remember we were spending all of our weekends out at this house in New Jersey and it was during that time that, you know, we’d go out, we’d ride our horses, we would relax together. We had the whole weekend together and if I’m working 60, eighty hours a week during the week and I want to build this business, I want to get out of that trap. There had to be some sacrifice. So guys, the lesson there is what are you willing to sacrifice? For me, I was willing to sacrifice some of the time that I was riding horses with David. David on the other hand wasn’t so thrilled about that in the beginning, but it was the sitting down and talking together that got him to understand how important this was. Communication as a skill.
Ann: It’s essential and I think that was one of the beautiful things because we sat down and I remember saying to him, the people that, you know, I was learning from and being mentored by. We’re saying sit down and put a vision board together. And so I walked in on a Saturday. I had all these magazines. I had a couple of pairs of scissors. I had a big piece of construction paper and magazines and I threw them all over the table and I said, David, we’re going to make a vision board. And we’re going to put on this vision board everything that we want in our life. OK, everything related to having our own business, being able to spend more time out here in the farm, being with the horses, traveling the kind of lifestyle that we want, you know, we knew that we could have different trips and promotions that we could work towards.
Ann: And a car programs, home programs. I mean there was the sky was right at the limits. OK. The Sky was the limit. So we remember his face when we sat down together and we made them making this vision board and he’s cutting out things and he keeps looking at me like, um, because we had never done this before. He had never done this. I’ve never done this. But it was fun. So the, the craziest thing is, is that we had this vision board up in our refrigerator, in the house in New Jersey. And when it came to a point in our business where we were, we had built something substantial. We had an international teams in different countries. We were doing a lot of traveling. We had so much fun. You know, going from one place to the other, he would do some countries. I was doing other countries. We decided to sell the house and to come back into Manhattan and used Manhattan as our base for being able to go internationally, all the travel and so forth. And so we’re packing up the house and I take the vision board off the refrigerator and I’m looking at it and I said to him, you’re just look at this for a minute again. And he looked at it and what did you say? Everything. Everything. Everything. With the exception of one thing.
Ann: The first car was where you had put up there. We wanted a black car. We ended up with a white Mercedes, but I know that sounds crazy and today, you know, we’re not talking about hypes and things like that. We’re talking about the fact that we had a common vision and I think that’s where you can get sidetracked if you end up having a conflict is to sit down and to communicate and to talk it through. I mean, we made a vow to each other that we would never go to bed mad, OK, that we’d talk it out and go to bed with an understanding and a kiss goodnight. So the mutual respect part, you’re going to hear as a, as an important component to having a healthy marriage in a healthy business relationship, even if you’re not doing the same thing together. So we now have, I think it’s really about respecting the other person in what they’re doing and wanting to be their support regardless of whether you’re involved in that person’s business.
Ann: Exactly. And I think that, you know, making that an important part of your structure and how you work your business together is really, really, really important. So guys, if that makes sense to you, you give me a one because I’ll tell you that, you know, this whole idea of creating a common vision, having goals, having a direction that you’re going to work something together. You know, there’s so many beautiful things in our profession where there are, uh, you know, incremental rank advancements because people are being able to earn more money. So that was an interesting thing between us because David saw that I was serious about this and the more I showed him how serious and was going after what I had, the more he was, you know, so proud. So excited and so supportive. So the important thing is that there are, you can look at this with your spouse, with your family if you have children and come up with a common goal.
Ann: Maybe there’s an upcoming trip, OK, a promotion trip that you can use for a family adventure. Maybe there is a car program, OK, as we had in our company and continue to have maybe there is a home program or a travel fund or just the rank advancements, OK, that will increase the business. But by making it a goal and working it together, OK, it’s a significant aspect. And for any kind of business that you have a and you’re working it together or working from home, you have to set those parameters so that both of you know exactly what it is and where you’re going. And it’s. Peggy is saying here, dream boards for vision our magic. They absolutely are. It made the biggest difference for us and I know it makes the biggest difference for those of you that are listening. The second thing was when day they decided, OK, we came to a point in our business where the it was really successful.
Ann: It was really successful and he started to see how much more freedom I had. Um, I was spending time overseas by this point. We had a home in Israel and he was able to come for short times at a period of time because he couldn’t leave his business back in New York. He would come and short times I’d be staying and using it as a jump off board for a various international travel that I was doing. And I remember you looking at this and saying, honey, I want to sell my practice and join you full time in the business. Totally by shock. If I can tell you my mouth dropped open without dropping any names. I just thought of all those entertainers and I thought to myself, I have just brought in the business manager for x, Y, and Z and I, and I was so excited because the fact that he saw this professionally as something that he wanted to do, but that’s set up another set of interest in, you know, dynamics between us because David had always owned his own business and now he’s coming into my business and I had actually was running and he’s also got rid of his office.
Ann: So there he was, had a penthouse office in the same building that we lived in, and Hatton. Now he’s down in the same apartment with me and we’re [inaudible] OK. So, uh, I said to someone how exciting it is to work together. We know what it is exciting to work together until to be together and to plan together and to drive this thing together. But it took some sitting down and make adjustments, making some adjustments and looking at who is good at what. Because again, it was a little bit of a conflict there, you know, was he was coming into something that, you know, he wasn’t necessarily his experience, you know, in a full time basis. So we sat down and we started looking at where is it that we can support each other, what are our strengths, what are each of our strengths, what are each of our weaknesses, you know, who is good at, you know, the initial conversation with people.
Ann: And that could be whatever your business is like. It could be who’s, who’s great at invitations a WHO’s good at follow-up, who’s good at training, who’s good at, uh, the presentations, you know, who’s good at that, who feel comfortable, who’s feeling uncomfortable with that? And we, we sat down and we had a very realistic and true conversation talking over who could do what, who, whose role would be what. And it was out of that, that whole concept that we came up with a really great working business plan that worked for us. So not only were we looking at, you know, who’s good at attracting the customers and potential new business partners who’s good at talking to people initially. He’s a Schmoozer of the universe. I mean, he can talk to anyone. He’s really, really good at that. Who’s great on the phone, who’s great at inviting people, who’s great at presenting, who’s great at training, following up a new technologies.
Ann: I have to admit David is the Wiz when it comes to new technologies who is good at finances, um, having been a business manager, he was handling the financial aspect of our lives, which he is really, really good at home management. OK. As our lives. Who continued to, you know, to evolve? Um, well, early on 30 years ago you found out I was not a great cook. So living in Manhattan was really easy, you know, to either go out to eat or to order in. Now we’re living in Pennsylvania and it’s not necessarily or New Jersey and then Pennsylvania. Somebody had a cook and David dusted off home recipe books and realized a do or die. It’s either he’s going to cook or were. We’re going to be eating the puppy food and the other room and, and he’s really good at it. So the idea was who’s good at the home management, who’s, if you’ve got kids at home who’s good at managing the children, you know, and I’ve seen many, many fathers in our profession who are so excited to have the time now to be with their kids that they’re the ones that are running to all the school events.
Ann: They’re the ones that are running to all the parent. Teacher meetings are the ones that are organizing the events with the kids. So, you know, it’s, again, it’s, it’s coming up with what works best for you and your family. But it’s a, it’s an agreement. OK, in terms of. And it may switch around to. That’s another thing guys, this is fluid. You know, some days it’s, David does something. Other days I’m doing something because of what comes up in our lives. You know, this is a lifestyle business that we’re involved in. It’s, uh, it’s our professional business is the fact that we can choose our to create our days as we choose to. And sometimes he’s on the road, sometimes I’m on the road, so you know, things do change,
David: but you know, I also want to add to tonight during the time that we were doing traveling, doing a lot of traveling, I’d be going to a number of countries and meeting with team members and new prospects and everything else. That’s not something that I ever did before. I meet with clients, prospects, prospective clients, meeting with a team member. It’s not stuff that I was doing it on the early days. You were doing all that. So now here I am traveling into foreign countries that maybe I hadn’t been to before. Meeting people from learning new cultures, new cultures and starting to do presentations with people. I know I’m not a person who loves going on stage, but you put me in front of the situation and if I’m your partner I’m going to stand up and do it.
Ann: Well, I appreciate that because when you really come together on this, it’s a matter of, you know, you just have to grow into what is necessary to move your business forward. And today, you know, there’s traditional ways of building the business. There’s so many new technologies now online, digitally. I mean we didn’t have facebook, we didn’t have twitter, OK. And we sure didn’t have snapchat and all those chit chats that are out there today. So it was a learning curve in that arena as well. And so sometimes somebody has to take the lead on that and learning the new technologies, a websites postings, you know, some really great stuff, you know, that have come about. And because he made it so exciting and so interesting, it made it more exciting and interesting for me. So this is where, again, you find your strengths and your ways in which you can support the other person.
Ann: And I have to say this guy’s, you know, it’s really about showing the, showing up in the world with respect. And I think that’s a big message that’s so necessary today. You know, we have so many of the different things that are arriving in a rising in our culture. Certainly in the last couple of months we’ve seen, you know, the meat to a evolution and revolution that’s going on. And the respect that we need to give each other, uh, in the last day. It’s been a horrific situation here on the east coast of the United States with what’s happened in that in, down, in Florida, in the school. And I believe that comes from the home environment where it starts, the respect that we give each other, how we show up into the world, what we expect in terms of not only our relationship, but also what we expect with how I’m, he expects me to be treated in a certain way and I expect him to be treated in a certain way.
Ann: So I will tell you guys that get rid of this spam call here. I will tell you that with the current events that are going on today, I think it’s even more important that we raise OK, this wonderful spirit of respect that we raise. OK, this wonderful attitude of support, OK, to create a home environment. And we teach that to not only our families but the teams and our communities. And we can strengthen things as a result of how we show up in the world. And the last thing I want to mention, and I’ll turn it over if you have any questions or you want to ask us anything or be open for that as well. And that is so vitally important that, uh, in our home and in our relationship, we choose not to have the same bad day. That’s a rule here in this house.
Ann: So it’s not a competition, you know, who has the worst day and who had the, the, you know, this went on and that went on. And if you think that’s bad and let me tell you about how this went. Doesn’t happen like that for us. OK? This is about listening. If I have a bad day, I can make it a bad day. I mean, I, I can take it to an art form, but always there to support me and cheer me and bring me up. And the same thing. What happens is, is as Pega saying, we’re loving more respect when he’s having a bad day, which doesn’t happen that often, honestly, I’m there to be his greatest supporter and to be the emotional person that raises the energy in the home. They love like, and that’s 100 percent the truth. So guys, I hope this was helpful.
Ann: I think in today, in the spirit of where we are today in the world, I want to send you off there with just a a great sense of appreciation for the friendships that we have a great appreciation for the respect that this profession has for great people and the incredible opportunities that come out of this opportunity to create a whole new economy for families, but also the fact that what this has done for our relationship and our marriage is so priceless and giving us both at this time of our lives, which started back 30 years ago, giving the this opportunity in our lives to live our life together.
Hi guys Ann Feinstein here. Welcome back to skill sets for success. And I had an interesting conversation this week with one of my team members who just came straight out and said I feel stuck. So I said, well, what do you mean you feel stuck? Well, you know, it’s summer and I’m finding that a lot of people are on vacation and they’re going here and they don’t have time and I can’t get people focused and so forth and so on. And so, you know, I believe in the power of stories. And so I said, well let me tell you a story. So this happened a couple of years ago. I had a guy who was involved with me and building and we had had a nice run through the spring. We had some nice momentum going in the group and then he says to me one day, now it’s August.
OK. So don’t expect the same kind of growth in the month of August because everyone goes to the beach here. So I said, really? OK. So all of a sudden as the month is going and we’re getting into August, I started to see the volume is climbing and the group is building and so, you know, I spoke to him on the phone and I said, well, you know, your beach idea of everybody going to the beach is not exactly happening. I said there’s some exciting stuff going on in your business. So you know, we kind of looked into the organization and I realized that I had met a couple of guys that had gotten into the business in his group at the end of July. Now they didn’t have the mindset that everybody went to the beach in August. They had the mindset that they just started in the business and they were going like crazy.
OK, in the month of August, you know, they were a group of guys that were working together. They started building, they started talking to people. They started doing all kinds of events and meetings and so forth. And you know, the craziest thing that happened, that group doubled in that month. Now that kind of killed his whole story about everybody going to the beach because not only did that momentum that started in July, which everybody’s in his mind starting to focus on the beach, certainly not going to do anything in August, exploded in the month of August. By September, the business was even greater by October. It was bigger than that and November was unbelievable. So you know, I go back to the stuck idea and I said to this person after I’d told him the story I said, which was, you know, real stories, stories. As I say all the time, facts tell, stories sell.
I said to the person, I said, now who or what is really stuck? I said, is it the circumstances around you or is it what you’ve allowed your brain to focus in on? And of course, the person started to laugh and said, you know what? I’ve allowed a couple of people to tell me a story that I now have in my head. I said, well, let’s sit down now and let’s reevaluate this whole plan. I said, you know, we sat down and we did the things that we normally do is leaders with people, you know, we sat down and said, what kind of activities have you done in the last couple of days? You know, what is your schedule look like for next week? You know, who are you talking to, what are the skill sets that are necessary where we need to work on and so forth because, you know, I believe that we all need to be working on ourselves so that we can get past those moments of what we think our times of being stuck, you know, what do we do in terms of personal development?
What are we doing in terms of learning a new skill so that you know, we have something new and to focus on what are we doing to reinvent ourselves. You know, I say all the time when you have your own new personal story of your own to share it with someone else, all of a sudden the energy changes. So guys, the next time that you’re starting to feel stuck, OK, think about what’s sticking you. Is it something that somebody else has said to you, or is it something that you’re thinking about that has put you into a mind freeze or a brain freeze that is not allowing you to move ahead, go back and look at your goals, go back and look at your activity level. Go back and look at what have you scheduled for the next week or the week after so that you start to move through.
You know that that energy, and I tell you all the time, you know you can never be down if you’re active, so if you’re starting to feel stuck, it’s that perfect time to go out there and start making things happen. And August is a great month to move ahead and to push forward and to have the launch of that whole full season. So have a great week ahead. August is a powerful time to get out there and meet people, make a lot of new friends, build relationships, and have a great week ahead. See all soon. Bye for now.
Hey guys, it’s Ann Feinstein, I want to say a big hello to all of you on this beautiful Sunday afternoon and uh, got a question for you and that is what are you going to do when the doubters come knocking at your door? Now we’ve gotten into a pretty lively discussion about this over the weekend, so I wanted to be able to share for really hot tips with you as to how to swap credit away and get yourself on to something really exciting. So good to have all of you with us tonight. I see we’ve got a bottom out. Robert. Hi. And Milton and Wade and. Hi Guys. Good to see all of you. And it’s wonderful to be back here on a beautiful Sunday. We just had a lovely afternoon with a grandson and a son. Had a wonderful lunch out. And so I’m rarely go excited about this topic for today because we’ve had a lot of really, really exciting conversations about this over the weekend, uh, with our team and miss some of the other coaching friends that were involved with our mastermind.
And so I wouldn’t get into this because this is something I want you to be thinking about when those little self doubt, little conversations go on in your head and you’re sitting there and you have a thought and suddenly, you know, it’s growing because we all know that whatever we think about grows and it grows and it grows and it grows. And I see we have karen with high and Suzanne. Hi Sweetheart. How are you enjoying [inaudible]? Good to see all you guys. So what do you do when the self doubt starts to job at your brain? Well, number one I like to look at it is, uh, something that I do every day and I think it’s really important and I love to start my day off with some personal development and personal development to me means just sitting down in a quiet space and focusing in on something that will really kick off your day in a positive way.
And one of my favorite all time philosophers, motivational speakers, someone that from the earliest date that I entered into entrepreneurship. And I have to tell you this, and if you have an entrepreneurial spark in your body, there are going to be moments when you have that self doubt, that self-doubt that says, you know, am I good enough? Am I smart enough, am I sharp enough? Do I know enough? Who’s going to listen to me? Who’s going to follow me? Who’s going to want to be part of this? So I’ve got to tell you that has that little stuff starts to creep in. The personal development in the morning, you know, anywhere from 10 minutes a day to 20 minutes a day is just absolutely perfect to kick your day off. Right? And one of my favorite favorite all time when maybe one of my favorite all time, a personal development coaches that I took on early on, actually David and I both took them on was Dr Wayne Dyer.
And if you don’t know anything about Dr Wayne Dyer, go google him a d, y, e r he is just the most amazing man. And I remember, you know, several of his books and his. We used to listen to this audio cassettes and I pulled them up on to Google recently, actually youtube recently, and I following him because I’m listening to one of his talks every single day and I love when he talked about changing your thoughts, changes your life. OK, when you change your thoughts, change your life. And he goes on to say that when you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change now. That kind of stuck with me all these years because whenever I have one of those self doubt moments, I kind of look at it and I say, well, that’s kind of interesting. And I remember something that he said early on, which 30 years ago, I mean has stayed with me this entire time and the thing that he said, which was so pertinent to me at that moment.
And anytime this comes up, this is what I think about. And I say to myself, you can’t be sad, depressed or in doubt. If you’re active, you can’t be sad, depressed, or in doubt if you’re active. So whenever I have one of those moments of doubt, I get active and so that’s the first really important tip that I want to share with you, that is it yourself, some personal development. Start to delve in, you know, every morning, 10 minutes, 20 minutes in the morning, the first thing that you do to get up to give yourself a star for the day in a positive way because they’re going to be moments when things just happened into your brain or someone says something or something happens or in a situation occurs and it can be anywhere having to do with your wealth aspect of your life, your relationship aspect of your life or your health aspect, and so get out there and be active and do that with your personal development.
Now the second thing that leads to begin to in that is what my good friend randy gage calls a, creating a learning agenda. And when I say creating a learning agenda, thanks David. Yes, move everything forward. When I say creating a learning agenda and that is think about something that you really want to learn more about. You know, whether it has something to do with health aspect of your life, it doesn’t matter. Something having to do with your business, moving yourself forward in your business. What are the areas that I’m really excited about these days as you can tell is the whole amazing k possibilities with social media and specifically here on facebook. So what I’m doing is, is that I’m actually studying with some of the best coaches and that’s the second point. OK. Getting yourself into a learning agenda and studying with. This is the third point.
Getting yourself some really great coaches. So I’m delving into this, you know, I’m having so much fun because I’m meeting such amazing people with such brilliant concepts relating to social media, digital marketing, Internet marketing that my brain is exploding with excitement on a c guy by a good friend, Chris Burrows who is another one of my great coaches. Thank you Chris for being on here today because you just doing amazing things to keep it all, you know, in the right perspective for me and he holds my hand throughout the entire situation. But I can tell you that, you know, this is something that David and I are just having so much fun with together. Uh, we’re taking a course together, we’re studying together and we’re, we developed this whole concept of, you know, sitting down, studying something, sitting down, talking about it and implementing it, implementing it.
And that’s another thing that’s going to help you get past the doubts because when you’re in a learning mode, you can’t be depressed, doubtful or inactive. And if it happens and it comes up, you have some great coaches around you. Now I just want to mention a couple of the great coaches because I want to give a lot of Kudos out to people today who are just giving us so much inspiration, such great information, having to do with this whole facebook social media excitement that we’re involved with now. And it’s Cathy Schneider. I love you and Brandy shaver again. I love you. You guys are just too awesome ladies that are just kicking butt and taking me along on this ride with you. So I want to give you a big kiss and thank you. Also Rob Sperry. And Steve Larsen, wow mind blowing stuff on social media, digital marketing, Internet marketing.
And so whenever those little doubts come in, you know, as to whether I know enough, if I’m smart enough, if I’m sharp enough, if I can present something and give somebody, you know, additional great inspiration, I go back to these guys. OK? So again, number one is personal development. Feed your brain, get your brain going. Number two is getting yourself in [inaudible] learning agenda so that you have something new and exciting popping up in your life that gives you inspiration, motivation, and pushes you forward. Number three is to get yourself some good coaches. You know, people who have done it are making things happen that can show you the way that are so generous in what they’re offering in order to, uh, to take you along on this amazing journey. And number four, OK? And this is a really important thing and that is something that we’re spending a lot of time on with our team.
And that is a daily mode of operation. Now, I spoke about this and one of the previous facebook lives and I said in order for you to move yourself forward in your life, OK, and we’re talking about our business here, but you could have a daily motive operation for things that you do for your health, daily motive operation and things you do for your business to daily motive operation, things that you do in your relationship. However, today I’m going to focus on moving your business forward and that means what are some things, in this case, three or four things that you are committing to do every day to move your business forward? Because what I found in the discussions that we had over the weekend is that people get into doubt when they feel that they’re not moving forward into these mind games with their heads when they feel that they’re not doing the things they need to do.
And so right here, right on my computer, I have the four things that I have committed to myself to do every single day, no pay, and these are things that are going to move the business forward with continuity and consistency. So those are two other key points that I strongly recommend that you put into your tool bag for getting rid of the doubt, and that is being consistent in what you’re doing because the doubt comes up when you’re not moving forward. The doubt comes up when you find yourself stuck, OK? And you look back and you realized, you know what? I haven’t done something either from my health aspect of my life, my business part of my life, or my relationship part of my life, but it’s your business life and you have certain goals and aspirations that you’re looking to achieve in a certain period of time.
And that doubt comes up. I tell you guys, go back to your daily mode of operation. Make sure you have those notes right in front of you so that you can go back there, refer to it, check it off, and make it each and every day. Some chick, but action. So I hope this was helpful, helpful for you tonight. A Sunday night as we prepare and get ready for an amazing week ahead. Uh, just remember, personal development, a learning agenda. Get yourself some coaches and get out there and move your move your business forward with your daily motive operation. So with that, I’m just going to say to you guys, have an amazing, amazing week ahead and go out there and just be amazing. So goodnight everyone. Have a great week. Bye for now.
Hi Guys, I’m Ann Feinstein here and I really want to ask you this question. How would you like to increase and boost your facebook post engagements? Now? That’s what we’re going to talk about tonight because I have had conversations about that over the weekend. People are saying to me, and I’ve been posting stuff on facebook and I’m getting crickets. Crickets means I just leave. It means that I’m not hearing anything back. And uh, I sure been there have absolutely been there where I thought I had posted something that is pure genius and sure enough, a very little interaction. And so I sat down and I said, well, let’s talk about this because I will tell you that there is a really, really w, there were a couple of really great ways to be able to boost your engagement and to be able to get some things really happening where you have conversations going back and forth and you’re developing wonderful relationships with people and making me maybe making some new friends.
And so everybody’s scrolling, scrolling through facebook, they’re just doing it. Sometimes, you know, with purpose, sometimes they’re doing it mindlessly, just sitting there looking at their facebook fan page or looking through their, uh, their wall there, threads and so forth, and you’ve got to catch people’s attention. OK? You’ve got to find a way to catch people’s attention either through bold statements. OK, I catching pictures. Uh, I discovered the whole world of emojis just this, this past couple of weeks, uh, to capture people’s attention because then when you’re talking about, you know, really being able to create the kind of engagements that you want and that you certainly want to see happening with all the things that are going on facebook. Now I’m going to give you three really hot tips that can help. So if that sounds of interest to you, just give me a one down there. And if you’re watching the replay and replay and type in where you’re calling in from, I’d love to see where everybody is.
I see Aliyah is calling in from Brazil and I see, oh, we’ve got David and Pam and Michael and I see John Gray. Guys, good to see you all here with us tonight. So first off, I find that a hot tip is to have a really bold statement or a really important question, OK? Because that way you get people’s attention, a subject that they’re probably interested in. Uh, today I wrote a post and you know, it was something about our Friday night, we went to see this amazing elementary school production and I’m sitting here thinking about the fact that teachers rarely get the applause that they deserve. And so that became the headline for the posts that I make. Now, if you’re taking a picture or a meme and you’re adding something to it, then you want to do something eye catching, you know, something that relates to you, something that you know, makes you relate to that particular meme or that particular article that you’re adding to your facebook page to catch people’s attention, OK?
That draws their eyes. Maybe adding some emojis, maybe adding some capital letters to really call attention to it. So the first tip is to either ask a question, make a bold statement, give a nice strong headline. Second, OK, is to offer a solution. Now, if you’re doing an article or you’re reposting an article that you know, comes from another publication, obviously you want to highlight something that was really, really important to you as to why you took time to read that article. So draw out something that caught your eye that will catch the eye of the people that are looking at this article. And so that’s an important thing to do, or, you know, give a really hot tip about something it could be relating to, you know, being able to lose belly fat. It could be relating to, you know, a good exercise regime and something that’s important to you and a tip that you have, OK, even if it’s relating to an article, you know, bring it back to something that gives either a solution, a tip or a benefit.
OK? So that’s number two, and that’s really, really important because that’s where you’re going to draw the attention to whatever it is that you’re posting and give people a reason for taking a closer look. Number three, and this is another quick one and an important one to do and that is create a call to action. OK? Make sure that you tell people in your post exactly what you want them to do. OK? And that’s really, really important because people need to know, you know, again, do you want them to like it? Do you want them to add a comment? Um, I did, didn’t posted the other day about the fact that I was having beach fever. I just was sitting here was a coal Friday afternoon and I posted the fact that, oh gosh, I have such beach fever right now and if anybody has been to a beach that they love.
And I posted some pictures of us that were sitting on the beach and some pictures that were really meaningful to me sitting on the beach. And I got a whole bunch of people commenting and adding and more pictures that they loved about being on the beach. So it created more engagement. The same thing with the teacher article, you know, I put some pictures in there. I put a video of my nephew who was dancing and having such a good time is one of the stars of the show and so I put that video in there in addition to a picture of the teacher that actually I really wanted to bring attention to. So if, again, you got to tell people what to do, go down and like it, I said go down there and give some hearts to this teacher so that she knows how much he’s appreciated and that all of her colleagues, you know, that are teachers out there are greatly appreciate it.
Uh, you may want them to go down below and to add some comments. You might want them to go down below and click on a website or click on an article or whatever it is. We need to give clear instructions and tell people exactly what we want them to do in order to have that kind of engagement. And so sometimes it’s even, you know, send me a comment, send me a private message, you know, I’d love to be able to help you in any way that I can hide Chameleo. Hi. Hi Guys. How are you today? So it’s really helpful if you have these three tips you know in mind when you sit down to make a post number one, ask a question or a bold headline, OK, emojis out a great picture that calls attention to get people looking at it.

Hi everyone, it’s Ann Feinstein and I came on tonight because I’m excited about something I want to share with all of you. Uh, just had some really, really exciting meetings over the weekend and some coaching calls and would have an opportunity to share some really exciting concepts that have been talking about and sharing with a couple of people and, uh, hope you had a great Sunday. We sure did. Here. Had some time with the family. Hi Priscilla. Good to have you with us. Uh, had some beautiful time with the family. Got Out and had to serve lunch out and some beautiful weather here today. So it was really, really, really a spectacular day. I hope you had a fun day to home with your family on a Sunday evening. But I, as I said, I wanted to share some really exciting things that have been going on and things that we’ve been talking about with some of the people we’ve been talking and coaching and mentoring.
And, uh, especially for those of you in the home business environment, building a business from home and trying to figure out some of the things that are going on today on the Internet online, and really zeroing in on the importance of how social media can be a really spectacular way to build your business from home. And so if you notice below, I had recently done a post on what to post, you know, how to get yourself out there with value providing people with something. Hi Diane. Hi Marcos. Hi Bob. Robert. Good to see all you guys have posted below about creating posts with value and some of the key questions. Six key questions to ask yourself before you go online. And I want to take that a little further because, uh, the cool thing is, is that as you start to think about what you’re posting, and Oh, by the way, this is me, me, and uh, she and I had a nice afternoon with David and with family and so forth.
And she said she wanted to come along as we’re talking tonight. Uh, anyhow, the key is, is that as you’re posting, the key factor I think that will help a lot of you is to really zero in on who are you talking to? OK, who do you want to attract to your business? Who Do you want to attract as either a, in a home business, as a business partner, a customer, someone that you know, you want to present to and share what your business is about. And so we were talking yesterday and the cool thing was is that there were some really incredible breakthroughs and the breakthroughs came from people recognizing the importance of being able to target in on who they wanted to really attract. And so I thought I’d take a few minutes tonight, Sunday night. I love Sunday nights because a great times to share our ideas and to give you some focus for the week.
And so if you’re excited about this topic, give me a one and the bottom below and let me know that you’re here. You want to hear about this. You want to understand more about the idea of attraction and how to target your audience and how to really effectively use social media and the Internet in order to expand your business. So it’s good to see you and he law and Rebecca and Terry and Daniella and David and Philippe. OK, great guys. So give me a one if you’re interested in this topic and we’ll get started here. I was telling the group the that the most important thing is that zeroing in and targeting and defining who it is that you want to be able to speak to. And so what I found is that you know, if you create in your mind and on paper the ideal person that you want to be able to attract through the Internet through social media.
And so we were talking about some key questions and some important things to help you to visualize the person that you’re talking to. So if you have a pad of paper and a pen, I would suggest that you grab it because I’m going to give you some key questions for you to be able to focus in on. And I have to tell you that the feedback that I’ve been getting in the last 24 hours from the group that we were working with yesterday was just over the top with excitement because now they know how to utilize this better and not just shoot from the hip with all kinds of different posts in different directions. I mean, if you’re using social media, your facebook page for your family and for connections, and this is probably not for you, but if you’re like me and a lot of the people I know today who are trying to figure this all out, and if you’re trying to figure it out, you know, give me a two in the comments below because I’ll tell you that it’s a really incredibly powerful tool for being able to build your business and to be able to attract the type of people that you want to surround yourself with.
So if this is the kind of exciting thing that you’re looking for, give me a two in the comments section. So I know that everyone’s here and they’re excited about this. So first thing is that visualizing. What is it that who was the person that you want? And we’re going to draw up a, a visualization and a key key characteristics of the ideal customer, the ideal business partner for your business. And so the first question I want you to ask yourself is, what? Who is this person? I want you to define them. What is their age? OK, what is their. What is their job? Do they have children? OK, what are the children’s ages? Are they married? Are they single? You know, what is the ideal person for you in your business? So if you want to just jot that down, jot down that question.
You can take some time afterwards and to fill this in, but I will tell you, those of you that go through this with me are going to find that the actually come to the end of this process. You’re going to know exactly the kind of posts and exactly the kinds of things that you want to put out there to be able to bring those type of people to attract those people to you, to want to know more about what you’re doing. So the first one again, is to define the age of that person, define if they’re married, to find with their chil how old their children are, if they have children and what their, you know, their, their basic, a life looks like. OK? And I would suggest that you get the person a name because now when you’re thinking about your posts, you’re going to be thinking about that person that you have defined.
OK? So, um, you might want to call them Bob. Do you want me to call the Mary? I’ve called Mine Hilary. OK? That’s nothing to do with politics, but it’s just to an individual that I think about when I’m addressing these things in developing my posts in my, um, attraction marketing. Secondly, OK? I want you to say it to ask yourself, what is their typical day look like? You know, what did, what did, did they get up in the morning? What do they do first thing in the morning? What kind of work are they going to, what kind of job do they hold? Do they like their job? Uh, what happens when they come home in the evening? The more you can get descriptive about what their, what their day looks like for them, I will tell you that you will then discover some of their pleasures and some of their pains.
OK? Some of the issues that they have in their life that they want to address, how you can help to address that just by getting a sense of what their day is like. OK? So that’s the second point. The third point is which social media platforms. Now I will tell you that right now you’re all on facebook, OK? And the key factor here is to get really good at one platform. So let’s assume that the all these people that we’re talking to right now, OK, are on facebook and if you’re using instagram or you’re using snapchat or some of the other platforms, twitter, that’s fine at. But I will tell you that it’s more a social thing here on facebook and I think you’ll find it very useful to pay. So you’re following with me. Can you give me a three thing? You’re getting this, OK?
You’re getting clear as to what’s happening here. Number four is what groups or what experts does this person follow? OK, in other words, a, who do they look for, you know, what kind of people do they follow, what kind of are they business people that they’re following? Are they personal development people, you know, be specific, are they people who have a strong background in a particular interest type of entrepreneurial pursuits? Are they on certain groups? And I will tell you that I have found participating in a few select groups targeted to my, uh, the people that I want to attract has been so incredibly exciting because we’ve been, you know, obviously being able to communicate, build relationships with new people and develop a whole new set of friendships that have just been absolutely extraordinary for us. So think about this, you know, make some examples are um, fitness people, uh, perhaps healthy living people, a home business experts, people involved in entrepreneurial things.
So get clear as to what groups or what experts this person is following. That leads me into number five, what does this person reading? OK, are they reading travel magazines? Are They Reading Wall Street Journal? Are they reading success magazines, you know, are they reading certain books, certain authors, um, I was just recommended to me that I get ahold of a couple of really good books for dealing with attraction marketing and pursuing entrepreneurial things. And so, you know, I always have a list of books that I’m reading and therefore the person that we’re magazines that this person is reading or going to be important because that’s going to be where you may likely find these people at some point when you start to pursue this on social media. Number six, what sports does this person play or follow or are they involved in with their family and their children?
OK. So that’s kind of important. Are they into a football and they into. We just had the big eagles issue here. It was just extraordinary. OK, how people were coming together to celebrate, brought such a joyful excitement here to the whole entire state of Pennsylvania. So they following the eagles, are they following different other sports teams or are they involved in tennis or their kids involved? It’s important for you to think about that again, in creating this person that you want to attract. Number seven, OK, what keeps them up at night? OK, what are they afraid of? Uh, what kinds of pains do they have in their life? I’m not talking about just physical pain. I’m talking about, you know, their in their life, they’re kind of financial pain, uh, their job pain, uh, whatever types of a personal pains that they might have a relationship issues, you know, think about that, but obviously want upbeat person, you know, positive people, but there aren’t going to be pains in their lives and you therefore want to find a solution for them.
Number Eight, OK, what danger. OK. Maybe around the corner that this person doesn’t know about. OK? For instance, you know, we talk about the economy, the way things are moving in the economy, the job market today we talk about, um, you know, somebody different life issues. I can address the fact of being in the sandwich generation and that is, you know, having kids and having elderly parents and how that puts a lot of different dynamics into a family. So think about that, what kinds of pains or I’m sorry, what kind of dangers might be around the corner for this person? Uh, so that’s something you can prepare them for. Number nine, what is the biggest opportunity that this person doesn’t know about yet? But that doesn’t mean your business per se, but the fact is that there is a solution out there that you can provide for this person and they don’t know about it yet and how you could be a great opportunity in being a mentor to this person.
OK. So how would you describe that to them and how would you then offer that to them? OK, so that’s number nine. And number 10 is what are the, what are their ultimate dreams and hopes, OK, what do they really and truly want in their life? And it might be changing a lifestyle, a financial security, a future security, being able to retire, you know, with, with great relief in their life, putting their kids through school and having the expenses, the taking care, being able to take care of those expenses. And it could be they’re getting married, depending upon the age group that you choose, the person in their, their life history in there, the way you’ve described them, OK? Think about their ultimate dreams. So we have their pains and their ultimate dreams. OK guys, so I hope this is helpful to you because I will tell you that, you know, we can go onto social media and do random posts and you know, every day put up something acute saying, shoot me, you know, something that you know, would just gives us a sense of interest or to be able to throw something up on to our wall or we can get.
If we’re entrepreneurs and we’re looking to build our business and put the right brand out there, I will tell you that one of the first things that I do, OK, when I get to know someone is I go to their wall and I see what they’re posting about. How many of you do the same thing? OK, if you do give me a number four because I will tell you that reveals so much about someone and you know who they are, what their interests are, what their experiences, what they’re looking for in their life. You’ll see so much there if they are, you know, have a, a, an awareness of how powerful social media can be for them and of course the kind of information that passes on to you. So I hope this is helpful. These are the kinds of things that we talk about and we think about when we’re, before we’re posting something, we love the fact that there is a whole world out there today, a whole world out there.
Being able to attract and talk to people and you know, there’s an endless supply of people to talk to. An endless opportunity to make new friends. We just have to know how to go back out there and go about it in a really exciting and a positive way so that we attract the right kind of people to us and we do it in a professional way with a lot of excitement and also with a lot, with the right sense of style and a capability to really give somebody a true sense of who we are. So I hope that was helpful to you tonight. It’s a great Sunday night. It’ll give you a great, some great things to think about as you go off and start a fabulous week ahead.
