    Human Behavior & don’t do what BMW just did…

    I’ve been reading books about human behavior and marketing, my most favorite subject. It’s something I’ve always been fascinated about – human behavior and why people do what they do, specifically when it comes to marketing and why people buy. I almost got a degree in psychology and went on to explore more. Instead, with my dad’s encouragement, I decided to change my major to journalism/advertising and minored in psychology. One of the many books I’ve read (Alchemy by Rory Sutherland) talked about the issue of money and human behavior. When it comes to SPENDING money, that’s not a big issue. We know how to do that well. 🙂 And we spend money to…

    What does a priest, a website, and a vacation all have in common?

    We finally took a vacation last week. And I still can’t believe our last vacation was our honeymoon when we married in June 2019! Since my spouse is in medicine, with the pandemic, we wound up staying put for the duration. We did take some day trips here and there. And there’s nothing like taking a full seven days off and just getting out of dodge… Since it was the first trip out, we decided to pick a place we could drive to for now. I’ve been to almost every state in the U.S. (And around the world twice – thanks to my 20 years in corporate). Seattle was the one…

    What do you do as a business owner when …

    It’s been a week since all of the supreme court rulings, and since then, I’ve done some research. I was curious about how other businesses, influencers, and organizations would handle the information or if they simply stayed silent. This leads me to ask you… What do you do as a business owner when something happens in the world that affects you personally or your business? Do you say something? Before I get to that, you need to know that what’s trending in business is that people are more apt to buy from a brand that shares their values. This is good, especially if you’re running a service business like coaching…

    27 Words that will help you attract your dream client

    I just finished a three-month copywriting course that pretty much blew me away. One of the reasons is that the person that created the course, Csaba Borzási, studied under all the copywriters I had and culled all that information into one course. Plus, he gave away some fantastic bonuses. I wanted to share one of these insightful bonuses with you in this week’s email. I am giving you the 27 words that will guide you to attract your dream clients and help propel your business. Before I share them with you, these words are not life-changing. Yet when you read them, it will make sense and help you in your quest to…

    Do you know this secret of why people buy?

    I was sitting on a Zoom call with a client brainstorming some email copy. She’s a Personal Lifestyle Designer and needed to get an email out to connect with her people about some offers and talk about summer clothing options. Memorial Day is coming up, and it’s a good time to connect with her list about upgrading their wardrobe. All the ideas she was coming up with were good, yet they’ve been done before. We needed to go deeper on an emotional level to really connect with her dream clients’ deepest fears, struggles, and desires. It was then that I started sharing some examples of how we could go deeper with…

    Anticipation keeps me….

    Yep and an oldie song for sure by Carly Simon that will forever remind me of the Heinz Ketchup commercial – An-tic–ip–aaaaa-tion keeps me waaaaaiiittting….” How about you? Of course, there’s more to anticipation than just this song… I want to share with you some potential mind-bending thoughts about anticipation. Let’s start with this question – How well have you anticipated your dream client/customer’s online experience on your website? This can be a challenging one to answer because if you’re like most of my clients, you create an online dream client/customer experience like what’s below. You create your lead generator optin to build your list of dream clients/customers. Create your thank…

    What kind of help do you give your clients or colleagues?

    Have you ever worked with a client who had some specific things they wanted you to help them with and you weren’t sure these things would work? What did you do? 1. Did you go along with them and give them advice and simply do the work they wanted? 2. Or did you tell them their plan had some flaws and wasn’t as good as it could be, and you proposed to help them come up with an even better plan? Seth Godin recently mentioned this kind of help in his blog. The second option is actually rarer – and in fact, more useful. Plus, it’s a bit harder to do. You have…

    Busting the Magic Bullet Myth

    I don’t usually “bust” anything in these emails, and today is an exception. I’ve had several prospects take me up on my offer of scheduling a complimentary call with me this past few weeks. Honestly, I LOVE doing these calls. My favorite thing about these calls is for that hour. I can practice my listening skills and help someone with a significant challenge and give them at least one or more solutions to guide them to their answer. Another reason I love these calls is that it’s an opportunity to get access to my dream client and find out what makes them tick. Such as – what are they struggling…

    Would you ever consider joining a cult?

    I know, a crazy question, right? Well… Of course, you are probably saying to yourself – “No way, that’s kind of crazy. Who in the right mind would join a cult?” Yeah, I know, I hear you, and I agree with you. Yet, let me share some interesting myths about cults with you: Most people think that those who join cults are not very intelligent or have psychological problems. Ummm, nope, that’s not correct. Believe it or not, most people who join cults are very intelligent and are psychologically sound. People knowingly join cults – Most people don’t or wouldn’t ever join a cult. What usually happens to them is like a frog…

    Traveling & Some Disney Adventures

    I debated whether to share this with you or not. And then I said to myself – “Well, I promised to be real and transparent.”  So here goes… Needless to say, traveling from the west coast to the east coast can be exhausting. You know what I’m talking about, when you have to get up at the crazy hour of 4am or earlier.  (Or we sometimes call it “O’Dark 30”). The hilarious thing is the folks at the airport and airlines are making a big assumption that we’re awake and functioning at capacity – ummm yeah… The good news is it was a little delay, yet all was well traveling…
