“The great charm of all power is modesty.”

-Louisa May Alcott

Letter from the Editor

Happy Birthday to George Washington! George Washington was known for honesty and integrity and it is immortalized in the story of the cherry tree. He chopped down a cherry tree by mistake, and when asked by his father,  ”Who did it?” He said, he could not tell a lie, he did it.  The scholars debate over whether this actually happened or not, but it has left a very positive view of our first president!

Honesty and integrity are important traits for any leader to have. When you are honest, you don’t have to waste energy keeping track of the lies.  When you have integrity, you make good on your promises.

Now, sometimes it is just not possible, but when you make a mistake, own up to it, and fix it.  If you can’t fix it exactly, find something that will make your clients, students,  and customers even happier than the original promise.

When you are known for honesty and integrity, you will get more and better clients, make more money, and sleep better at night!

In the long run, honesty and integrity are always the best policy.

In business news, one of my speakers,  from the Virtual-eBook-Expo-series, several years ago, connected me with his partner, and the three of us are talking about becoming strategic partners, which would be awesome. It would allow me to focus more on what I love to do best while providing a valuable service to their business. I was telling my husband that I wish this had happened years ago, but the truth is that they just moved into the space where they could use my services in the past year, so there you have it….it takes as long as it takes! And by the way, it probably never would have happened if I hadn’t taken Leveraging LinkedIn with T.R. Garland because it really showed me the power of relationship marketing.  (I reach out and that’s how this opportunity came about.)

Also, we reached 30 likes on the new Facebook page! www.facebook.com/bestsellertobusinesspro! Thank you to everyone who has liked the page!  It means we can now get the insights for the page. Woo-hoo!

In personal news, Christen had a set back with his medication and I had to take him to the emergency room because an incompetent doctor wouldn’t give him his medication and you can’t go cold turkey off of it and I’ve had a cough all week. But, we’re keeping on!

That’s it for now…..

5 Ways Getting Organized Can Increase Your Productivity & Sales!

1. Time is money. When you’re organized you’ll have more time for work and play as well as more money! When you are disorganized, you spend a lot of time looking for things and it keeps you from rolling up your sleeves and getting to work-whether it is looking for work tools, your eye glasses, or other work-related items. Being disorganized is a time-burner!

2. Be more reliable. When you are organized, you’ll have everything you need at your finger tips. This can help you to show up on time and look more professional.  And when you show up on time, you are seen to be more reliable; you get more clients and make more money!

3. Clear map to success. When you are organized, you know what you have to do to get projects done in a smooth and orderly fashion;  your strategy will be clear and you’ll know it is going to work before you start! When you are disorganized, you may start projects without having all the information you need to do them right.  You can find yourself knee-deep in a project only to find that it isn’t working and you’ve just wasted your time.

4. Be professional. Professionals show up on time and come prepared; you’ll have everything you need at your finger tips and be cool, calm, and collected, drawing more clients and customers to you! When you are disorganized, you can look like a hot mess! This will cause colleagues and customers to double whether you can handle the job at hand and they will be less willing to working with you or refer clients to you.

5. Reduce stress and anxiety. When you’re organized, you leave enough time to get tasks done during regular hours (you may even finish ahead of schedule) leaving your more free time for self care, family, and personal priorities. This will reduce stress and anxiety-giving  you more time to relax knowing you’ve got this! But, when you’re disorganized, tasks can drag on into the wee hours of the night leaving you exhausted and grumpy, or worse, it could cause you to miss important deadlines.

It pays to get organized, all it takes is knowing the strategies organized people use to make it work.  To learn 5 “MUST-HAVE’ strategies to get organized, be sure to watch Video 2 of my FREE training series, Stop Procrastination, Increase Productivity. (Watch your inbox for details.)

Tech Tips

Deleting a Blank Cover Page

Have you ever tried to add a cover to a PDF and it creates a blank first page?
Then, you try to delete the first page and it won’t go away.

What most people do is try to delete the first page by putting the cursor on the first trying to delete it. But, that doesn’t work. What you have to do is you have to put the cursor on the second page in the upper left-hand corner and delete it from there.
