Things That Will Make You Money - Number 3 - Energy



It has been said successful people do things others won't do.  What are those things?  One of them is bringing energy.  If you bring energy through a smile and excitement then people will want to be around you and do business with you.

Did you ever see the TV show cheers?  Each episode contained a demonstration of energy.  The theme song correctly related:
Sometimes you want to go
Where everybody knows your name,
And they're always glad you came
The point was demonstrated when Norm entered the bar and the customers yelled in unison "Norm"!  Yay, you feel good when people remember your name but especially when they do so with energy.

When I walk into a store and the person actually looks at me and says "welcome" or better yet "welcome back" with some energy it makes me feel good and I want to be there.   Today, when the barista remembers your name the coffee shop is making money.

You can use this to to put money in your pocket.  Show some excitement when you are with others and make them feel good.  Combine bringing your energy to meetings with persistence and consistency and you have the recipe for big time success.  Develop familiarity and make people feel good and good things will happen to you and put money in your pocket.

Things That Will Make You Money - Number 2 - Consistency



It has been said successful people do things others won't do.  What are those things? Consistency along with persistence will make you money.  Together these two will create familiarity.  Whether it be blog posts or attending networking functions or making appearances, consistency will create familiarity.

Now while familiarity can be cultivated on the first meeting success more often comes after several meetings.  So at a networking function, for example, on your first visit you are a stranger and people may be hesitant to trust you.  But as you see the same people over time they begin to see that you have something going for you.  They may not know what it is but it must be important enough for you to come back again and again.  Eventually the consistency creates more and more familiarity and people get more comfortable with you and more likely to do business with you or refer you to others.

So consistency really works when you put yourself before the same people over and over again. Think about your own habits.  Don't you prefer to go to stores or people you are familiar with. People will setup a newsstand and stay there forever knowing that the familiarity breeds success. Combine that with persistence and you have a dynamic recipe for success.

"Location, location, location", yes location is important but familiarity through consistently being in the same place or in front of the same people will result in money in your pocket.  What you want to avoid is the pursuit of getting rich quick and when it does not happen then changing to another location or networking meeting.  Success is cultivated over time with consistency. Rather than going to different networking functions each week go to the same function consistently and develop the familiarity that leads to trust which leads to business success.

The great thing about consistency is that you don't have to be flamboyant or really creative but the consistency over time itself will create familiarity.  If you are also really creative or really interesting that is a great combination but just being consistent will often beat creative and flamboyant over time.

Things That Will Make You Money - Number 1 - Persistency



It has been said successful people do things others won't do.  What are those things?  One of them is persistence.  I have noticed that "the swift do not always win the race" but the persistent usually do.  The persistent often out perform the more talented.  Why?  Because they get that it is a numbers game and the talented frequently can be out worked.  So you don't have to be the best but be the most persistent.

Specifically, people with very little skill succeed and outperform people with skills because they talk to more people (or they write more blog posts).  In fact the really successful are like machines in that they talk to every potential customer.  They even do many things wrong but they succeed because they work at it and they "go for it" all the time.

If you are in business or starting a business, a better mousetrap or better and less costly food is not going to make you rich.  Persistently talking to people who can use a mousetrap or who eat will result in money in your pocket.
