Believe it or not, money doesn’t create happiness! You can be very financially wealthy and
yet you are not living a happy healthy life.
Let’s start with business.
I can tell you from experience and from helping clients, that there are certain things that must
be in place in business to attract more clients, make more money and ultimately to create success. For example:
- You need to be very visible, which does not mean you need
constant speaking engagements. It’s nice of course and will make
you feel good however, in today’s world of technology there are a
myriad of ways to get more visibility and to build relationships.
- If you are networking, the importance of your 30-60 second commercial
is very high on the list. You are not there to just have fun and make
yourself feel good, you are there to meet and help people and to create
- It’s important to make coffee dates with new people you meet at networking
events so you can get to know them and their business better. In turn
they will get to know you. However, this doesn’t mean every other day
but it does mean on a somewhat regular basis. Maybe once or twice a
- Visibility doesn’t just mean in person or brick and mortar. Today with
social media it’s important and necessary to have a daily presence on
both your personal and business page. This means you have to create
a social media plan for yourself. You can use pre-set postings with some-
thing like Hootsuite but posting on social media sites once in a while does
very little for your business. People want to get to know, like and trust you.
- Write articles and get them posted on article sites and blogs. Have your own
blog and post something at least once a week. Send out a newsletter to your
list on a regular basis.
One of the biggest mistakes I see entrepreneurs making is thinking that with their kind of business they don’t have to post on social media, write articles or send out a regular newsletter. Whatever your business, even brick and mortar, getting visibility in different ways is high on the importance quota. Today, social media is essential for business.
What does having good health have to do with business and wealth?
Wealth is not just about money! Good Health, A Joyful Lifestyle and Financial Freedom = Wealth. Staying healthy, especially as you get older, is essential if you want to live a long life have a sound mind, good energy and, be in a good physical condition so your children don’t end up having to take care of you.
Without good health you cannot create the success you want in business, relationships or life in general. Wealth is about being on an even keel in your life in all areas.
So, what does it take to stay healthy? There are illnesses that sometimes we just can’t avoid from the smallest, like a cold or flu, to the worst; some kind of cancer or disease. You don’t want to run to the doctor for every little thing but there are times when it’s necessity.
- Whatever age you are, having a yearly physical after you turn 40 is
Don’t ignore something unusual if it doesn’t disappear
within a few days. If anything is wrong it needs to be caught early so
you can do something about it.
- Meditate and/or use visualization/hypnosis to keep your mind balanced
and to create less stress for yourself.
- Exercise regularly, even if it’s a walk around the block during your lunch
break. Practice yoga if that’s your thing, take a cycling or Pilates class,
whatever it is, it keeps your body fit and helps your mind to stay sharper.
- Join a group. Choose something that is of interest to you and join a class.
Do something you’ve always dreamed of doing and haven’t done yet.
Over the years I learned that to avoid an issue would just make it worse. This not only applies
to your health or your life it also applies to your business. If you are ignoring something that’s not working it’s important to make changes now so that next year can be different.
Being healthy means you will have energy and you will be able to live a long life and continue your business for as many years as you like.
I’ve been in business for over 25 years and although I’m 75 but why retire? I love what I do
and how I’m able to help people change their lives and their business. Now I’m also starting a new business to help entrepreneurs get more referrals and have much better client retention.
My business and my schedule are just designed differently. That’s the bonus of working for yourself.
There’s always something new you can add to life and business to keep you motivated and energized, it’s just a matter of deciding what’s important to you.
So, good health and living joyfully are as important to the success of your business and life as
is being financially wealthy.
