Hmm. Sometimes there are tough decisions to make.  And sometimes the reasons need to be shared.

When it's a calling, it can feel too BIG for who you are...but that's because you're looking at it from the wrong perspective.

Does anyone else find themselves gleeful when the process they know works ... works yet again?  Ha.

My clients don't always believe me when I say that by answering my questions and writing emails to me with their answers, they'll have at least 65% (usually MUCH MORE) of their page (blog post, sales page, About page, whatever) written, and that all that will be left is the editing.

But it WORKS - and it works beautifully!  ::happydancing again::

I'm excited to be talking with +Sherry Nouraini this morning about testimonials!  Join me?
 
Word of mouth is a business owner's most effective weapon for business growth, but it is not always easy to get good testimonials, don't you think?

Here is a link for mobile viewers:  Reputation Management: The Art and Science of Testimonials by Grace Judson

Like everything else in life, getting good and timely testimonials requires strategy, and our speaker this month +Grace Judson will show us how to do just that.  I had the privilege of sitting in one of Grace's workshops which  transformed the way I ask for testimonials!  You know me, when I find something awesome, I don't keep it to myself, so I asked Grace to be a speaker at #opensm  

What Grace will cover

• What’s the real purpose of testimonials?
• How should we ask for a testimonial?
• What if someone asks us to write the testimonial for them?
• Does it matter where the testimonials are placed on the website?

Who is Grace
Grace Judson is on a mission to empower every small business owner to write their own website content.  She believes the most powerful words are the words we find for ourselves.  She knows that, even if we don’t think we do, we all have the words – meaningful, heartfelt words – to tell the real story of the power of our work. And she’s seen, over and over again, the ways in which finding our own words creates confidence as well as cash flow.

Please share this event with anyone who might like a better process to up their game in getting testimonials and enhancing their reputation

The primary reason I object to the term "branding" is that it gets hung around with processes, procedures, techniques, flow charts ... all about how to brand your business. But isn't your business a living, breathing thing? Do you really want to stamp a hot-iron brand on it, and freeze it in place?

What if ... an authentic brand message was a deep connection between the heart of what you do, and the heart of your best customer? What if it was an empathic expression of your understanding of your best customer's longing for help, and your ability to provide that help?

Would that change how people approach "branding"?

Visibility. Boundaries. Privacy. Exposure. And being the "face" of your business. Yay for choices and intentionality!

Privacy versus visibility?  Not really the issue - and yet, it can seem like a big question when one is the "face" of one's business.

Dreaming about creating a new service offering for your clients?

Dreading writing the sales page?  

There's help for that - help finding your own words (I promise you have them!) to create a powerful offering and a compelling sales page that will resonate with your best clients.

When your work is a calling, it can be hard to manage the feelings of "who am I to be doing this?"  Water, pipes, work, and you:  http://bit.ly/1qLC6Fr

Grace Judson's +1's are the things they like, agree with, or want to recommend.
I've been a member of HeraHub Carlsbad for a number of months now, and I've just been blown away by the quality of the support, the fantastic people, and just the overall sense of being with like-minded people in a supportive environment. Every member I've met has been open and friendly and helpful. Felena Hanson, the founder, is constantly coming up with new ways to help us succeed, and the Carlsbad Hub leaders, Catherine Mowbray Lorenz and Melanie Sheridan, are consistently welcoming and supportive. Plenty of events each month to attend, learn from, and network within - it's been amazing! I've never been sure that a co-working space would be right for me, but I have to say that Hera Hub has made a believer of me!

You know how sometimes you read reviews and you're not sure if you should believe them or not? These positive reviews you're reading about Michel are absolutely true. I initially found him on Yelp when I was searching for a local person to repair my ailing 15-year-old refrigerator. I have to admit I wasn't at all sure that any appliance repair person could be as superlatively excellent as everyone was saying about Michel. But I figured, what did I have to lose? I emailed him through his website on the Sunday after Thanksgiving at midday. At 5:15 that afternoon, he called me. And walked me through troubleshooting and diagnosing the problem with my fridge, AND told me exactly what to do to fix the problem. No charge. No up-sell. Just friendly, intelligent help. How often does one have a wow-tastic experience with an appliance repair company? As I said to Michel, his number goes in my permanent record. Fabulous service. I almost find myself wishing for something else to break down so I can actually *pay* him for his help.

When I moved to Oceanside twelve years ago, one of my first concerns was to find a good veterinarian for my eight cats. I feel truly fortunate to have picked the Mission Animal and Bird Hospital. They've been with me and my cats throughout all these years, and have been consistently caring, skilled, and compassionate. The expert staff and vets at Mission Animal Hospital have helped my cats through various ailments and injuries, including the many common and not-so-common old-age illnesses cats encounter. In every case, the veterinarians and staff at Mission Animal Hospital have been consistently responsive and caring, and consistently skilled in their treatment recommendations. I count it a tribute to their care that my two remaining cats are entering real old age - in their late teens - as happy, healthy furbabies who continue to thrive and purr. The brand-new Mission Animal veterinary hospital is absolutely beautiful - spacious and incredibly-well-though-out, providing everything from fully-equipped exam rooms, to a scientifically up-to-the-minute surgical suite, to the compassionate touch of a comfortable room with private exit for those difficult end-of-life decisions. I recommend Mission Animal Hospital to everyone I know who has pets!
