  Here are 3 questions to ask yourself on a daily basis. 1. What should I be doing differently? If we want to keep growing, be more successful, then doing the same thing is not the answer.   What is your answer to what you should be doing differently?   I learned how to let go, delegate and re-prioritize tasks over the years.   This has helped us achieve growth and continued success. After 30 years in my career, I get up every day and challenge myself...

  How do you manage your time to be more effective?  This topic keeps resurfacing in many discussions with business owners, managers, employees and when mentoring entrepreneurs. My good friend, Nick Russell of Russtek Media recently blogged about this same topic.  His favourite line on this subject requires discipline:   "If you set your mind to it, you will be able to stay motivated and work from home and be as productive as you would be in an office setting." We have our habits...

  Do you notice most successful people are also the polite ones? These are the people who step forward at a networking event to greet the newcomer, make them feel welcomed and introduce them to others.  They excuse themselves from their current conversation to focus on the person entering the room who seems to be a bit uncertain. When conversing with a polite person, they tend to listen a whole lot more.  You walk away feeling very good about a great discussion and...

  This week I've hit a milestone of 30 years since my professional career started right after graduating from the University of Windsor with a Bachelor of Commerce degree! Thought I'd take this opportunity to thank so many terrific people who have supported and helped me along this awesome journey!  Thanks to Carmela for her love, support and always being here for me.   Here's to our 25th wedding anniversary in June!  To Haley and Syd for their love and keeping things in...

  This week we revisit why entrepreneurs take calculated risks. If you always play it safe then you have made the choice of not being an Entrepreneur. When you take all the time necessary to explore all the options and know the end result to guarantee practically zero risk, then you are not an Entrepreneur. Entrepreneurs do take calculated risks most of the time.  Time is of the essence when making decisions.  You have to take a snapshot, make some presumptions and calculate...

  Are you finding there are so many things to do in a day and you just cannot seem to keep up?  The answer is to slow down so you can go faster.  Seriously that is the answer. I know what you are thinking:   "the answer is to go faster and multi-task".   You will find out in the long run you are completely wrong.  We are not "designed" to multi-task.   Here is an example:   have you ever been in a meeting where someone is...

  Are you making a difference?  Do you inspire others to make a difference or are you inspired by others who make a difference? (you may have to read that last line again). Bringing your passion and positive energy to everything and everyone you interact with makes an impact.  I enjoy watching people turn everything into a positive light and see how they make the best of any given situation. On the business side, it is enjoyable to truly partner with clients to...

    How are you building your network on a daily basis? Share your network by connecting people.   This should be happening all the time and should happen naturally when the opportunity arises.  Being known as "the Connector" is a good thing to building your Circle. I personally enjoy connecting people especially at the WindsorEssex Circle events. Watching new relationships develop and seeing interactive discussions leading to great ideas which turn into opportunities for them is what it's all about. Sharing information such as articles...

  What do top producers believe in? They feel they can ask their prospect any question.   Do you share this same feeling?   Are any topics or questions off the table or not appropriate?   Being open and candid with prospects is a good approach.   Knowing when to press and when not to press on a topic is something top producers usually get right. When meeting prospects for the first time, the answer is asking them questions and to keep asking questions.   This is the...

    Many of you have asked why I blog and comment on the weekly topics.   Thank you for the feedback and want to share an updated version of this topic with you. Every Wednesday morning rolls around and it's time to publish Building Circles blog.  So why do I blog?  When I reflect on the first Building Circles blogs, it makes me chuckle because I used to blog daily!   It was my way of sharing my thoughts which eventually evolved into a...
