Reinvent Yourself – Each time a major shift happens in our lives—a graduation, a career change, a major move, or losing a loved one—we have to change our SHAPE to reach our full potential. Each major shift gives us the opportunity to go to the next level, but only if we are willing to move out of our comfort zones and reinvent ourselves to embrace new possibilities. A few weeks ago, I was listening to Bishop TD Jakes, and he said: “Don’t shape yourself around the environment you are in or came from.” The things you want are always possible and the only real obstacle in your path to a fulfilling life is you, because (like Les Brown said) “we all carry the baggage of insecurities and past experience.”  Trust me I know.

State facts and statistics in your marketing messages that are relevant to your target audience. Create your own unique selling statement that separates you from other service providers.

Start giving presentations and workshops to educate your market on the importance of your services. Work on developing deeper relationship with potential referral partners. Word of mouth advertising is very powerful.… Continue Reading
