Want to know about…
What does a day in a life of an entrepreneur look like? It goes something like this; Wake up, think about your ventures. If you are anything like me, you work on yourself first. Whether it be reading, listening to a podcast or watching a Ted Talk.
What is the difference between you and I? The difference between you and I is that I am here writing these words that you are reading. Is that the only difference? I want to hack my way into the public while you are wanting to get off the grid. To have your privacy. To know that people can only see what you put out and nothing else. Not those sad moments, the miserable work you endure daily or the fights you have with the people you love most.
A why can get you all the answer. It can build relationships, and it can bring you new opportunities and businesses. My intention in this post is to help you understand how to approach organizations that you want to work for, and the things to do prior to making your pitch to the organization.
“What if you had the wrong dream all along?” This is a line from a biographical crime film, Blow, when Diego (antagonist) meets George (Protagonist) in prison and finds out why George was sentenced. Lately I have been feeling that I have lost my sense of purpose. Having no purpose leads me to feeling more tired, unmotivated, angry, sad, overwhelmed, useless.
THESE BOOKS HAVE ENRICHED MY LIFE
I will explain why you should read these books and how they have helped me in my journey.
Hyena by Jude Angelini
This book is comprised of autobiographical short stories from Jude’s personal experience. This is the book that started it all for me
The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell
This novel has giving me a new perspective on how small acts can make a huge impact. I have used this saying in my Givers Group.
Start With Why by Simon Sinek
This book is must read for every single person in business or not. Start with why is the question that gets overlooked by so many, yet it is what differentiates everyone. Everyone has a why, but very few know how to communicate it. This book conveys why you should have a why.
Crush It by Gary Vaynerchuk
“Have real relationships with customers.”
This book is so valuable to entrepreneurs, I was going to single it out for marketers but I believe all entrepreneurs will benefit from reading this awesome book. This book helped me understand how and where to approach my target audience.
Ego Is The Enemy by Ryan Holiday
This book was published at pivotal moment in my life. One of which I have let my ego surmount the importance of my work. The reason why I do what I do. It was a revelation in Ryan’s timeless truths that helped me realize that simply being aware of my ego I can get back on track for what Is purposeful. “Always be learning.”
The Challenger Sale by Matthew Dixon and Brent Adamson
Amazing book for entrepreneurs, especially for those who are in sales and marketing. The challenger sale is someone who teaches, tailors and takes control. Someone who challenges the way the customer thinks about their business . I was introduced to this book by my mentor and VP in sales in a SaaS company. I have began to apply it in my businesses, and have noticed that the approach is powerful and effective.
Growth Hacker Marketing by Ryan Holiday
So you want to hack your way into the media presence. You want people to pay attention to what you are informing, selling, and thinking about. You want to build a loyal list of subscriber so that you can think about long term gains. Read this well written book by Ryan. He expresses how important it is to understand that there are key fundamentals for success and that things do not happen randomly. Success happens because hackers understand how to make things go viral.
Influence by Robert B. Cialdini
Why is influence so powerful? How do you know which approach people use to influence you? Robert who sometimes is referred to as the ‘Godfather of Influence’ gives us an inside look as to how people act and react based on six principles of common persuasion tactics. Great book for people in business to understand how to approach customers, and this is also great for buyers want to buy logically.
The Thank You Economy
People don’t care about you. If you want them to care you need to show them that you care. Sincerely care from the bottom of your heart, not just care about wanting them to buy from you. Trust is built upon engagement. So engage in a manner that brings value to others. Think customer service, culture and intent. “There is no ROI on caring and trust.” So you need to trust that by doing the “right thing is always right.”
