Vision and Mission Statements

Posted on: June 17th, 2014 by Neworld Coaching No Comments

Shameless MikeThe vision and mission statements are the touchstone for everything you undertake, from strategic planning, marketing, and management and to recruitment, hiring and performance evaluations…

These two statements are important, tangible guides for the future of your business.

Once the vision and mission are written and digested, the rest of your business activities, including the management and marketing of your company, have a direction.

  • They cements your relationship with you and your potential client so they know where you are coming from & where you are going.
  • Companies who have vision and mission statements have reported an increase in business since they put them on paper.
  • Brings stability during times of growth and unrest.
  • Put them on everything-stationary/business cards/all marketing materials/newsletter heading
  • Train your staff to know these statements by heart.

Vision Statement
This is the big picture. The word vision means the conception of an image. In a vision statement you say where it is you want to go.

Here is Neworld Coaching’s Vision Statement:

“To inspire and empower people to live in their higher self for the betterment of the world.”

Mission Statement
The Mission Statement flows directly from the vision statement. It is the implementation of the vision and it outlines what must happen to realize the vision. It’s a “how we will get there” guide that contains action words and adjectives that modify them.

Here is Neworld Coaching’s Mission Statement:

“We strive to become the #1 Coaching Company by providing encouragement and education combined with the necessary tools to help our clients improve their business and personal lives, whereby realizing their full potential.”

Common Sense

Posted on: June 2nd, 2014 by Neworld Coaching No Comments

Michael Fletcher

One of the most common misconceptions in business is that “knowing how to grow your business” is just common sense

If this were true, many more small businesses would be extremely successful. As it is, 85% of new businesses fail in the first 5 years.

Are YOU making your decisions based on what you feel is just “common sense”?

When I started my landscaping business many years ago, I was right out of the military and had the “men don’t ask directions” attitude. Today, I run into this stubborn “I can do it on my own” approach all the time with people who either come to my seminars or meet with me to talk about their business. I stuck with this approach for several years, and my business did grow steadily, but I wasn’t seeing the results I thought I would, and I knew the company had more potential that it had realized, or I had realized.

Eventually I had used all of the ideas in my hopper and figured that it was the city, the people, the economy or the competition that was to blame. It couldn’t be me because I was running my business using common sense and that was my key to success right? WRONG! Eventually I made all of the fatal errors I could make and my company closed.

I decided it would be a good idea to educate myself and become a Massage Therapist. After I was done with my schooling, and had the training that I needed, I felt it was best to identify the causes of the demise of my landscaping company. This was necessary because my dream was to build the largest Massage Therapy clinic in Canada. I hired a Business Coach.

Andrew made me see the light. He explained to me that knowing what you “do” and doing it “well” is only 20% of your success. The rest of your success depends largely on many “Success Principles” that have to be utilized strategically and effectively. Soon I was riding the elevators in the Plus 15 in Calgary. I would step in after everyone was on and give my 30 second verbal commercial. It wasn’t long until I had clients coming in the door and I was using systems whereby they would keep coming and bring their friends too!

I could go on and on about how I built the largest Massage Therapy Company in Canada in only 2 ½ years, but that is not the message I am trying to get across here. My point here is that even though I possessed common sense in business, there are tangible strategies that must be implemented in order to succeed and most of these ideas had never occurred to me. I learned that to be successful in growing your business, you need to find the uncommon approach that will set your business apart from your competitors and help you be far more successful than most.

I realized shortly after I sold my company and retired, that Business Coaching was my passion and jumped into that career full steam. I took courses and learned from some of the best. Within a few years I was an accredited Business Coach and I was helping owners to realize their potential. I get a certain “rush” when I observe one of my clients have a “light bulb moment” and I feel their excitement as they grow their businesses and enjoy a better quality of life.

Of the small businesses that fail, 90% do so because of lack of skills and knowledge on the part of the owner. This is a very sad but true fact. Think about this… if the success of your business depended on you having the knowledge to fly a plane, you wouldn’t just jump in the cockpit and expect direction from common sense. You would seek out a qualified instructor to teach you. That is what Business Coaching does.

Take the “Could a Business Coach Help Me? Test

1. Do you know the difference between business marketing and selling? Most people mistakenly think they’re the same. In fact, effective small business marketing can make selling unnecessary.

2. Do you know the one thing you need to do to attract more clients? Small business owners typically think that it’s increasing the awareness of their company name. Actually, your company name is only important to existing clients. Prospects don’t care what you call your company; they want to know which of their problems you can solve and the benefits you can provide them.

3. Common sense would dictate that giving ideas and products away would be detrimental to your business and your revenue. Right? In fact, the opposite can be true. A well targeted ‘give away’ can boost sales tremendously.

4. Do you know where the real profit potential is in your business? Too many small business owners make the mistake of thinking it’s the product they sell to new clients. Your real source of profit is all the additional products and services you could be selling to your clients.

Do you still think that growing your business is simply “common sense” and that you can just keep doing what you are doing to achieve your business potential? Or would you agree that perhaps you should consult a Business Coach? I know a few good ones!

As always… I am intrigued by passionate people who want advice about being successful with their goals.  If you would like to speak with me about your business, simply contact the office to make arrangements.

Camera Opportunities!

Posted on: May 19th, 2014 by Neworld Coaching No Comments

Here's an Idea

Turn any situation you can into a camera opportunity!

If you are having a grand opening event you can invite local celebrities or politicians to stop by.

You can turn a business meeting into a camera opportunity by giving an award. Then call the media and ask them to attend also.

When these situations do present themselves, ensure that you get a photo for your own uses. You can exhibit it in your retail location afterward or place it on your website and other promotional materials.

We have taken advantage of this idea many times and it always proves quite fruitful.

How To Coach U!

Posted on: May 5th, 2014 by Neworld Coaching No Comments

Michael FletcherCoaching is about being your absolute best. It is about performance, staying the course and creating the life that you truly want. Many people use Coaches to make more money, improve their businesses, and better their quality of life in general. The most important factor about Coaching is to learn to adapt and live up to your own standards.

In the words of Henry Thoreau… “March to the beat of your own drum, no matter how faint or far away.”

If you choose to not afford to hire a Coach, then here are a few basic suggestions for “self-coaching” yourself to success:

Write your Goals down on paper. A goal is not truly a goal until you write it down. If you haven’t yet written it down then it is merely an idea. Review your goals frequently. At Neworld Coaching we have many planners that our clients, who are truly following our program, write in frequently. A magical thing happens between your brain and your hand when you actually write things down. You make a mental note to exude effort for your cause. You will actually double your chances of success if you write your goals on paper.

Make an effort. Many of life’s important achievements simply require that you are present, pay attention, work hard, be truthful and try your best. Your performance does not depend upon the past or the future. It depends on the effort that you make right now in the present.

Keep your eye on the ball. Avoid distractions. Life is full of them. Successful people do not tolerate interruptions or distractions. They solve the issue promptly and move on immediately. Stay focused.

Manage your efforts with order.
Truly successful people have neat and orderly offices, cars and calendars. Being organized will greatly improve your chances at success.

Read every day.
Your choice can be challenging, enjoyable or useful. The point is to continually expand your mind by reading (or listening to) the written word. It will excite and motivate you.

Focus on your values. Take time consistently to review your values. These are the things that cost you nothing but make your life worthwhile. Review what is really important to you and ensure that you are maintaining that path.

Play more. Have fun. Do what you enjoy. Take some freedom time to do what you love the most. Your life is all about you. Be active. It is good for the soul.

Be grateful. Practice an “Attitude of Gratitude’ for what you have in your life. Remember there will always be people who have more or less than you. You are exactly where you are supposed to be right now.

Just as a sophisticated cruise ship must consistently monitor its course… so must you. Getting lost, even for a brief time, can slow your endeavors down and create chaos in your life. Set up routines and use the best resources you can find to stay on course. This is your life. You are your own Captain.

As always… I am intrigued by passionate people who want advice about being successful with their goals.  If you would like to speak with me about your business, simply contact the office to make arrangements.

Here's an Idea

Absolutely everyone who is in business can make better use of testimonials. Why are they so powerful? Because, no matter how strong your sales and marketing skills, no matter how well you communicate the benefits of your products and services, nothing communicates the quality of what you are offering better than the words of other people who have experienced doing business with you.

And… Testimonials are Free!

Here are some guidelines for maximizing your testimonials:
The best testimonials give a detailed and specific description of how the person has benefited from what you have to offer. Let’s use an editor/rewriter as an example.

“Deborah is an amazing editor. I highly recommend her” – this not a particularly effective testimonial. The following would be much better because it specifically describes the benefits of using Deb’s services…

“Deborah is an amazing editor! She takes such good care to listen to my message and rewrite it into a pleasing form.  Just one article  rewriten by her has gained us more attention than a year of me writing on the same topic in my own words! Above all else, I trust her. She always makes me sound as professional as I really am! f you need a professional rewrite done on your website or anywhere else, I strongly recommend calling Rewriter.ca

One of the leading obstacles to increasing your business is convincing people that you can really deliver on your promises. A testimonial does that for you. So when customers tell you they’re pleased with you, don’t be bashful. Ask if they would be willing to share their experience with others. Many will jump at the chance to write you a testimonial.

Include your client’s name and, if appropriate, their business name on the testimonial. Don’t use anonymous testimonials because people just don’t believe them.

Once you acquire testimonials – use them! Put them everywhere – on your website, brochures and any other marketing materials. Print your testimonials and proudly display them in a book in your waiting room. Video testimonials are very effective too!

In fact, testimonials are a great way to handle objections. If a potential client tells you they think you’re too expensive, show them some testimonials from other clients that explain why you’re worth every penny. This is so very powerful.

If you are starting a new business, you must plan to make testimonials an integral part of your marketing from the beginning. You could even give your first clients an incentive if they provide you with one.

Whatever you do, please don’t under estimate the power of testimonials. When used properly they can increase your business by 30% or more.
