Get Protected!

If you have a credit report there’s a good chance that you’re one of the 143 million American consumers whose sensitive personal information was exposed in a data breach at Equifax, one of the nation’s three major credit reporting agencies. 

Here are the facts, according to Equifax. The breach lasted from mid-May through July. The hackers accessed people’s names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and, in some instances, driver’s license numbers.

They also stole credit card numbers for about 209,000 people and dispute documents with personal identifying information for about 182,000 people. And they grabbed personal information of people in the UK and Canada too.

Here are some other steps to take to help protect yourself after a data breach: Read full article here 

Tip:  
Check your online bank statements and credit card statements on a regular basis, ideally weekly," said Matt Schulz, senior industry analyst at CreditCards.com. "Bad guys can be very patient, so it's important to keep an eye out long after this story fades from the headlines."

I Conquered my Fear!

I recently participated in a 26 Day A-Z Brand visibility video challenge.  Being an introvert, I actually freaked out in sweats when it was actually time to produce and post my very first video.  

However it was on my short term goal list to start video branding this year.  I realized the most important thing for me was to jump right in and take action on this goal.  I am happy to announce I completed all 26 days and now there is no fear of producing videos for my brand. 

Taking immediate action on your goals provides you with the power to overcome fear, doubt, uncertainty of outcome, and perfection.  Excellence is better than perfection.  My problem was that I wanted my video to be perfect.  I wanted my verbal content to be perfect.  Perfect got in the way of me doing this sooner.

Step 1. Write down your goals. Step 2. Simplify.  Step 3. Pray.  Step 4. Take Action

Well the next step was to share my videos outside this private group.  More sweating!  This week I decided that I would and could do this.  When I looked at my goal list, I realized that I have since then added more goals and it pushed my goal to share my videos to the bottom. 

I also realized that my goal list was super long and I had no breakdown actions.  This caused me to not focus on my immediate goal, sharing my videos, aaah.  

It is okay to dream BIG and have an enormous list of goals.  It's better to breakdown that list into short term and long term goals then break it down a little more by writing down an action plan next to each goal.

I decided to write down three goals per month and take action on these goals. I not only accomplished my goals, but I was in control of my life!!!  Do not be distracted my the length of your goals list. 

If you are an emerging entrepreneur or even a seasoned entrepreneur and things may seem a little unsettling or overwhelming because of the many things you want to do, the new Write The Vision, Make It Plain, 90-Day Goals Planner and Workbook is perfect.  I designed it to assist you in simplifying your goal list into three per month.  This system is perfect and having a system to conquer your goal list is awesome.

Happy Planning!

Making Yourself The Expert

One thing that I have learned on this entrepreneurial journey is that you have to be consistently learning.  Learn, Learn, Learn.  Study, Study, Study.  Research, research, research.  Engage, engage, engage.  Share, share, share.  Personal and professional development is key to success.

Everybody trusts an expert. And, as every salesperson will tell you, individuals want to do business with people they know, like, and trust.

 

Here’s the 10-step process:

Step 1. Determine how you are going to brand yourself or your company. How do you want people to see or perceive you?

Step 2. Create a profile that will match your brand. It can include your degrees or certifications, your experience, your knowledge, and any material you’ve written or created.

Step 3. Create accounts at all of the major sites where you can brand yourself — LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube, Facebook. Then post consistent information on each of these sites with proof of your expertise.

Step 4. Get your knowledge out there by participating online. Many social media websites — including LinkedIn and Facebook — provide a place for you to answer questions posted by other users. All you need to do is review the questions, post a detailed, informed answer, and include a way for people to contact you.

Step 5. Get published on the Internet. The easiest and fastest way to get published is by creating a blog. There are many free tools out there for blogging, including WordPress and Blogger. The more quality information you publish in your area of expertise, the more you are perceived as an expert.

Step 6. To increase the impact of your social media presence, interlink between the social media sites and have them all crosslink to your website or blog. For example, have LinkedIn link to your blog, have Facebook link to your blog, and have your blog link back to LinkedIn and Facebook.

Step 7. Develop a strategy for enhancing your credibility with simple, informational videos highlighting your area of expertise. They can be as short as 3-4 minutes. Record them with a flip camera or a video cam on your computer and upload them to YouTube.

Step 8. Leverage the power of these sites for search engine optimization. If you follow the steps above, you’ll find that your name will come up high in the search engines. Google loves social media websites.

Step 9. Be active on these sites. You need to become part of the community. Social media websites are not just places to post information and broadcast your ideas. They are designed to be interactive. The more you interact, the more people will get to know, like, and trust you — and respect you as an expert.

Step 10. Finally, become a voice of your industry. You can do this by researching relevant news stories and reporting on them to your followers. You will soon be recognized as a source of great information in your area of expertise.

 
As you go through each of the above steps, your reputation as an expert will grow, especially in your particular niche. this will lead to trust… which will lead to more business for you.

Remember these are just options.  Do what works for you and it doesn’t have to happen all at the same time.

An Interesting Place Called....Entrepreneurship



Prayer Principles
Romans 8:28 NIV

"And we have known that to those loving God all things do work together for good, to those who are called according to purpose."

Entrepreneurship is an interesting place and it is often met with failure and setback.

But when you know that there is a purpose for your work, you are clear that you are on assignment.  Remember the good and bad are working for your good.

As you continue to build your relationship with God, He will move you forward from barely making it in business to having more than enough.  He will present and open doors in a supernatural way.  He will position your name with the right people, in the right places and at the right time.  

Ephesians 3:20 NIV
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us"
#PrayWorkSlay

PRAYER
Dear Lord, I pray for the understanding and support of those closest to my heart, my family, that they will equate what may seem like endless hours of pre-occupation with business affairs to what is at the very core of my being. 

Once I achieve what I set out in it's fullest, I will become that more complete being I strive to be.  I am an entrepreneur.  I thank you Lord, and I am grateful that you allow me to see another day of fulfillment and a walk in my purpose. Order my steps Lord.  In Jesus name, Amen.
