Good Afternoon  ,

We've often heard that telling people about your goals motivates you to achieve them. 

Jeff Haden reports on research that offers a little different twist on this advice. According to Jeff, it's important to be selective about whom you share your goals with.

Furthermore, he suggests detailing your plans for how you expect to achieve your goal before you tell anyone anything. It's been said that a goal without a plan for achieving it is just a dream. 

Once you have a goal and an action plan for achieving it, the goal and the plan are best shared with different people.

He says that telling the wrong person about your goal can give you a sense of progress. And you may or may not have actually done anything!

Read on to see Jeff's recommendations on all this.

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

Our proprietary process can find and start conversations with your ideal client prospects. And then 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. 
(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.
