Good Afternoon 

Are you having a day when things just seem to go badly? How can you make it better?

Or maybe things aren't really going badly, but you can't find any enthusiasm. Blah!

Mary Lynn Ziemer has some simple advice for those days: Smile!

Have trouble forming a smile in the face of the trials and difficulties of the day? A great suggestion is to disengage for a few minutes and take a walk. Notice a flower, a nicely shaped shade tree, a clean counter, a picture of a loved one - anything that gives you pleasure. Think of people who make you happy. Think of events and objects that make you happy.

Science tells us the physical act of smiling elevates our mood. Even if you have to force you lips into the form of a smile with your fingers, it helps you feel better. In her article Mary Lynn reports on research subjects who held a pencil between their teeth to form a smile. That works too! They feel better.

Another way to cause a smile is to think of something someone did that you appreciate. Send them a quick message, or just feel the gratitude. We're all connected! Your feeling gratitude for someone has a positive effect on them, even if you don't send them anything.

Check out Mary Lynn's article and, if you're so inclined, browse her other writing. She has many positive messages. Reading a few of those can really elevate your mood and bring a smile to your lips.

How's 2019 Shaping up for You? 
Imagine going to a unique networking event. At this special event, you find all your ideal prospects waiting to talk to you.

Our proprietary process can give you this kind of exposure to the people you want to help!

We find and start conversations with your ideal client prospects. Then we communicate your value, and get them to schedule appointments with you...all on autopilot. This can happen for you! Learn how here.  
When you join Smart Money Network's Business Accelerator Platform , we:
  • Edit your LinkedIn Profile Page so it better attracts people in your market. 
(Hint: What painful issue do you resolve for your clients? If your LinkedIn profile describes how you make your clients' lives better, it's rare! Most describe the merchant's qualifications and expertise. They say little about what he/she does to eliminate clients' pain.)
  • Search LinkedIn's hundreds of millions of members for the few thousand who match your ideal client profile. Y ou define your  best prospect for us .  
(Even if you can find these people manually, it will take hours away from your work with your current clients.)
  • Invite about 100 of these best prospects every day to connect with you on LinkedIn.
  • .Send a welcome message to those who accept your invitation and connect.
(Typically 15% or more. Currently nearly 40% of my invitees are connecting.) 
  • Deliver something of value to them from you, and then do it again! 
  • Begin a "drip campaign" of carefully timed messages, continuing to provide value. These messages give...give... give...and then ask. No pitches!
All of these messages come from you personally. We want and expect your input in developing them...unless you want us to just do it. You can follow the threads and adjust your messages as you see better ways to engage your prospects. We're always ready to talk with you about improving your messaging.
Want to "ripen" an opportunity with a direct personal message? Take over the exchange manually whenever you see a "hot" prospect you want to engage with your unique message.

About John

Throughout a career spanning over 45 years my management style has been one of building teams to bring several competent people together to focus on a common objective. I noted early in my career that, in most organizations, there is an enormous amount of time, energy, and effort wasted by people working at cross purposes.

As I transition to life in the Argentine outback, my focus shifts from coaching to helping other business coaches and advisers get their message out to their prospective clients. With my first-hand knowledge of the benefits of effective business coaching, I am uniquely qualified to help business advisers of all stripes convey their message.
