EPISODE SUMMARY: Extreme focus is needed to launch a rock or to reach an Olympic dream. Knowing when and how to focus best is vital to implement winning results into your own business? Getting your mind in the game before the week starts is something successful business owners know and do. Can you take 15 minutes on a Sunday night to do the same? As they say – preparation is the key. Nick and Chris discussed the importance of providing offers that add value to your potential clients. It doesn’t have to be all about being the cheapest. Think about what you can offer and when they will have most impact. Change your offer as the season's change – or at least be aware of what your client would value most at this time. Don’t rule out a Lifetime Warranty on your work. It doesn’t have to be frightening. Should you? We’ve all had to start thinking outside the box and doing things that we normally wouldn’t. But don’t forget what’s right in front of you, your contact list. Build relationships with businesses aligned with yours. It’s about who you know! The key is to build on existing relationships.
