Inside Out

Work On Who You Need To Be To Achieve Your GoalsYears ago I first heard Wayne Dyer asked the question what do you get when you squeeze an orange? Of course the answer is orange juice. The next question is why? The answer is because that’s is what’s  inside.

For me that is one of the most important lessons. How does this apply to business development? The answers may  surprise you. First I’m going to focus on health and health starts from the inside. Our health is reflective of what we eat, drink and how we think.

I now  know it is also related to the effectiveness of our circulatory system  I recently published an article addressing The Four Pillars of Vibrant Health. I highly recommend this. Click Here to read it.  I’ve talked about great technology that improves the circulatory system of our body Click Here  for that information.

What we eat and drink and how we think also affects our health.  If we’re always focusing  on problems,  grievances and are in in a state of fear we are putting tremendous stress on our physical self.  We cannot achieve our business development goals or any other goals for that matter unless we are in a state of positive physical energy (How do you think I know this?)

it is very easy to evaluate our physical self just pause and ask yourself how do I how do I feel?  If you are happy at peace excited and positive that’s the state we are  intended to be in.  If you’re not then  then you are well served by examining a self development program that will work for you. I have many recommendations – just ask.

Another evaluation process is to examine what you write and what you say. What comes out of your mouth what comes out of your pen it’s all reflective of what is inside you. You can’t call another a derogatory name without having that feeling that experience inside you.  Any judgment of another is a reflection of yourself when you adopt these principles of being physically healthy and being in a state of love rather than fear it does not mean that everyone that you want to reach will pay attention to you. it will mean you are attracted to those who you are  intended to reach and that is how you grow your business and achieve and achieve relationship goals and happiness goals

Success Mastery: Excellent Customer Service Will Win Every Time If The Price Is Right

ExcellenceWhen you look at the data and the results it is easy to understand why a business is successful and another one fails. Amazon continues to expand what it offer and levels of service. They are obsessed with getting it right and your satisfaction. I am a Prime member and I think it costs about $79.00 a year. What that gets me is free shipping and fast delivery. I recently ordered several items that I use regularly the prices were better than Sams Club and delivered right to my door in 2 days. It is amazing service and that is the key to success in business.

Have you been to a Radio Shack lately? See the point? Relentless attention to delivering what the customer wants is key. For the record I am not knocking the helpful attitude of people who work at Radio Shack. In fact their willingness to help is generally far greater than what you will find at most retail stores. However, look at the rest of the picture of customer service. I have never received one email from Radio Shack and I am a customer. I receive emails from Amazon everyday. Because Radio Shack does not communicate with me I have no idea of what they are recommending or promoting and they have no idea of what I think of their service. On the other hand Amazon asks me to rate every transaction.

I am not an insider to Amazon and do no work for them. I would make a strong bet they have statistics on all areas of performance and are consistently looking for ways to improve. In reading articles about and interviews with Jeff Bezos, my impression is he operates at the level of founder as well as anyone in the world. He focuses on what will Amazon look like three to five years from now and even beyond. Most executives have no idea as to the precise roles of a founder, CEO and CFO. Most companies follow traditional organization structure and classical organization behavior still taught in most business schools. If those principles worked, companies like Radio Shack and others would be thriving.

Is there an absolute fool proof roadmap. My answer is yes with one qualification: people must use and implement it. Want to know more? Call Me.

This Will Make Your Day

American Soldier A wealthy man and his son loved to collect rare works of art. They had everything in their collection, from Picasso to Raphael. They would often sit together and admire the great works of art..

When the Vietnam conflict broke out, the son went to war. He was very courageous and died in battle while rescuing another soldier. The father was notified and grieved deeply for his only son.

About a month later, just before Christmas, There was a knock at the door. A young man stood at the door with a large package in his hands..

He said, ‘Sir, you don’t know me, but I am the soldier for whom your son gave his life. He saved many lives that day, and he was carrying me to safety when a bullet struck him in the heart and he died instantly… He often talked about you, and your love for art.   The young man held out this package. ‘I know this isn’t much. I’m not really a great artist, but I think your son would have wanted you to have this.’

The father Opened the package. It was a portrait of his son, painted by the young man. He stared in awe at the way the soldier had captured the personality of his son in the painting. The father was so drawn to the eyes that his own eyes welled up with tears. He thanked the young man and offered to pay him for the picture.. ‘Oh, no sir, I could never repay what your son did for me. It’s a gift.’

The father hung the portrait over his mantle. Every time visitors came to his home he took them to see the portrait of his son before he showed them any of the other great works he had collected.

The man died a few months later. There was to be a great auction of his paintings. Many influential people gathered, excited over seeing the great paintings and having an opportunity to purchase one for their collection.

On the platform sat the painting of the son. The auctioneer pounded his gavel. ‘We will start the bidding with this picture of the son. Who will bid for this picture?’

There was silence…

Then a voice in the back of the room shouted, ‘We want to see the famous paintings. Skip this one.’

But the auctioneer persisted. ‘Will somebody bid for this painting? Who will start the bidding? $100, $200?’

Another voice angrily. ‘We didn’t come to see this painting. We came to see the Van Gogh’s, the Rembrandts. Get on with the Real bids!’

But still the auctioneer continued. ‘The son! The son! Who’ll take the son?’

Finally, a voice came from the very back of the room. It was the longtime gardener of the man and his son. ‘I’ll give $10 for the painting…’ Being a poor man, it was all he could afford.

‘We have $10, who will bid $20?’

‘Give it to him for $10. Let’s see the masters.’

The crowd was becoming angry. They didn’t want the picture of the son.

They wanted the more worthy investments for their collections.

The auctioneer pounded the gavel.. ‘Going once, twice, SOLD for $10!’

A man sitting on the second row shouted, ‘Now let’s get on with the collection!’

The auctioneer laid down his gavel. ‘I’m sorry, the auction is over.’

‘What about the paintings?’

‘I am sorry. When I was called to conduct this auction, I was told of a secret stipulation in the will… I was not allowed to reveal that stipulation until this time. Only the painting of the son would be auctioned. Whoever bought that painting would inherit the entire estate, including the paintings.

The man who took the son gets everything!’

God gave His son over 2,000 years ago to die on the Cross. Much like the auctioneer, His message today is: ‘The Son, the Son, who’ll take the Son?’

Because, you see, whoever takes the Son gets everything!

FOR GOD SO LOVED
THE WORLD HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, WHO SO EVER BELIEVETH, SHALL HAVE ETERNAL LIFE…THAT’S LOVE

God Bless.

Here Is How It Works – The Universal Formula For Amazing Experiences

Set GoalsThe Universal Formula For Amazing Experiences

  1. Begin with an intention – avoid thinking you need to know how this is going to happen
  2. Pay attention to the messages you are intended to receive
  3. Take action
  4. Allow all to unfold – do your part in moving things along  while honoring all happens at the perfect time

I am writing this as a reminder for myself because when things begin to happen all of us can  stop remembering how it all works.

I once thought everything starts with an idea.  Now I know  ideas are the second step.  The first step is having a clear view of what you want to experience.  This experience when in alignment with your purpose has a lot of power when you visualize it and feel it.

I was discussing an innovative technology with a friend (story follows) and he said “if this one thing comes to fruition, I won’t have to do anything else”  I said I am sure that is true.  I also said my view was that one thing would be fuel for doing even more and delivering an even greater contribution.  That is part of my view.

Now For The Rest of The Story – Keeping It Brief

Nearly 10PM Saturday night I was organizing some items for the next day.  I glanced at my email and noticed one from some company I did not recognize and it said her is the link to the information you signed up for.  So knowing that is a typical spam technique I normally would not have given it any attention. Going back to that email I see why I paused then clicked and watched a 2 min. video. That led me to more research  and a 23 minute video. At that point I has some questions – technical questions.

I am very well aware I am not giving you all the data. That is intentional as that is not the point right now.

I remembered a friend on the West Coast was an expert in this area and I called him as it was still early in that timezone. That call led to a discussion about two amazing developments he is connected with that have worldwide benefit at a level of magnitude that I am not currently ready to predict. One of these developments is a direct connection to the topic I called him about.

Today we continued the conversation and I was expanding the people I knew personally or knew one step removed who would be great connections to learn about these developments because what they are already doing and working on are in alignment with these cutting edge developments which are proven and not simply ideas on paper.

Actions are Either Strong or Weak – Message from Neale Donald Walsch

Neale Donald Walsch I believe God wants you to knowI get a message from Neale nearly everyday. I read them all. I really like the ones where he ends with “And you know exactly why you received this message today.” Visit Neale Donald Walsch One of my favorite messengers and first famous with his Conversations With God books.

Be sure your register to the right so you never miss any of the outstanding material I publish! 🙂

On this day of your life,
Steve, I believe God wants you to know…

…that every action is either strong or weak,
and when every action is strong we are successful.

Wallace D. Wattles said that, and he was right. You know when
the action you take is strong, and you know when it is weak.
You can tell in your stomach. Endeavor to
take no weak action whatsoever. Run away from it.
Reject it. Go for the strong action, the strong choice, every time.

You know, by the way, what is meant by all of this.
You have been weak in some of your choices and decisions,
and you have been strong. You have been both in your life.
But no more, right? Only strong from now on, yes?

And you know exactly why you
received this message today.

Love,  Your Friend

Neale.

Thank you Neale

Thinking I Am A Victim Will Not Bring The Desired Results

thinking you are a victim

If you believe there are shortages of opportunities and wealth, then that is what you are going to experience. Do you think Google or Facebook thinks there are limits on building wealth? What about Apple and the turnaround story of Starbucks? Have you looked at what Koty Batemen has done with Send Out Cards? The people behind these success stories were not born into those successes.

I don’t know about you but nearly every week I see some story about people criticizing the Top 1%, promoting much higher minimum wage is the answer or how government should be doing more. All of that is the thinking of victims. There is nothing stopping nearly any of us from experiencing all of what we want.

Now and The Future Not The Past

Set GoalsThe one message that continues to resonate in my life from all the resources that guide me is this “I am responsible” With very few exceptions and there are some, nearly everyone is responsible for their own life. If you have a family, the responsibility that comes with being a parent or child is part of who your are.

What does “I Am Responsible” mean? It means you look at what you are capable of doing, continually expand and not look for others to carry you. It means not blaming the economy, government, or the circumstances you find yourself.

There is a formula for moving forward that is proven. Part of that formula is that we must focus on taking the right actions now with a view of how those actions contribute to the achievement of goals we want to accomplish. Focusing on the past whether that be one hour age or years ago is not a good use of our time and talent.

My results guaranteed coaching program is founded on this program. The only change I am not making is to become more aggressive with the goals I am setting and related actions required.

Host Gator Rated A – Siteground Rated F

Outstanding Host Gator Support 

I love acknowledging outstanding support.  I have been with both Host Gator and Siteground for a long time. Host Gator has nearly all my hosting business and is the host for all my clients when they need that service.  Until last night I had no complaints or problems with Siteground. I had simply registered a domain with them in 2006 as a test and was hosting that domain with them. I had no problems with them until last night.

On One Day I Had Problems That Required The Customer Service of Host Gator and Siteground The problems were big – at least to me. One of my main sites hosted by Siteground was completely down. Another very important site hosted by Host Gator showed a coding error after an attempted version upgrade that prevented me from doing anything,.

Problem Resolution

Siteground tech support by phone could not access the server (policy) so their work was limited. I was advised to complete a trouble ticket. I did and the response was pretty fast. Their advice was they could fix the problem (not caused by me) for a fee. Since everything had been renewed just 6 days ago and I had a backup on my hard drive (not as current as I would have preferred) I asked for a refund and said I would move the hosting and domain. I was informed there would be an early cancellation fee if I did that and so no refund. To make matters worse the first person I was communicating with went home and a new person took over and had no understanding of what was taking place. Recognizing I was getting nowhere fast I move the host and low and behold when I moved it everything was working perfectly. You can see it at http://stevereports.com 

HostGator tech support was by phone from the start.  It took awhile and finally the (Reggie H.) came on and said “Steve we have our best tech guy working this and he has not been able to fix it. The best we can do is a full restore from our backup which was done 2 days ago. I was fine with that since I had not made changes in the past two days.  About 5 minutes after that conversation,  Reggie called me back and said Tim S. – the guy with the reputation according to Reggie of being the master of solutions had solved the problem.  It took time and while I don’t really care for their on hold music the customer care and service was again outstanding.  Does that mean they can and will resolve any and all problems quickly? No it means they care and work to resolve the problem as best they can.  Thank you Reggie H. and Tim S. and the Hostgator team.  To see the site where that was down Click Here

A Deserving Tribute to Jay Conrad Levinson

I received this email today and paused to reflect on the passing of a legendary man. He helped me. Thank you Jay.

Dear Steve,

jay conrad levinsonOn October 10th 2013 at 4:36 am, the world lost a bright light. Jay Conrad Levinson, the “Father of Guerrilla Marketing” passed peacefully on to his next great adventure while at his home in the loving arms of his wife, Jeannie Levinson, and surrounded by family after a two and a half year battle with Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS) a cancer of the bone marrow.

Jay was the author of the “Guerrilla Marketing” series of books. Guerrilla Marketing is the best known marketing brand in history, and has been named one of the 100 best business books ever written, with over 21 million copies sold. His guerrilla concepts have influenced marketing so much that his books appear in 62 languages, and are required reading in MBA programs worldwide.

Jay was born in Detroit on February 10th 1933 to Robert & Sadelle (Cohen) Levinson and sister, Myrna (Levinson) Pope, raised in Chicago, Graduating from Hyde Park High School, He was an avid White Sox Fan and a pitcher in the Minor Leagues. He served two years in the US Army Counter Intelligence Corp. His genius level IQ earned him membership into the Mensa Society. Graduating from the University of Colorado, his studies in Psychology led him to advertising agencies, including a Directorship at Leo Burnett in London, where he served as Creative Director. Returning to the US, he joined J. Walter Thompson as Senior Vice President..

A winner of first prizes in all the media, including the both the Cannes and Venice Film Festivals, Jay has been part of the creative teams that made household names of The Marlboro Man, The Pillsbury Doughboy, Allstate’s good hands, United’s friendly skies, the Sears Diehard battery, Morris the Cat, Mr. Clean, Charlie the Tuna, Snap Crackle Pop, Tony the Tiger, the Jolly Green Giant, and Rolling Stone Magazine to name a few. In the 60’s he had the most ads running on TV at any one time.

Jay also worked closely with Hugh Hefner to help the marketing launch of Playboy Magazine and the first Playboy Mansion in Chicago.

In 1971 Jay left the corporate life and moved to the San Francisco Bay Area where he lived for the next 35 years. A proponent of work/life balance, he prided himself on earning a healthy living working only a three day week, while writing and teaching others how to do the same. He usually spent his four day weekends following his two favorite passions (other than writing) white water river rafting in the summer, and snow skiing in the winter.

In the early 1980’s, seeing the need for small business and entrepreneurs to be able to compete in the marketplace against huge Fortune 500 companies, Jay created Guerrilla Marketing and taught it for ten years at the extension division of the University of California in Berkeley

Young students in his class included the likes of Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Michael Dell and Larry Ellison among others who went on with the marketing skills they learned from Jay to became legends in the upcoming computer and tech industries.

Entrepreneur magazine called him one of the foremost business marketing experts in the world. Jay has written over 100 business books. He and his wife, Jeannie co-authored several books and traveled the globe together speaking to students, entrepreneurs, and business large and small.

He was especially honored as being a national hero to many emerging Eastern European nations, who credited his writing of free enterprise, with helping them with the skills needed to break free from the Iron Curtain.

In 2004 Jay and Jeannie sold their home, bought a Luxury Motor Home, towed a Jeep, and spent the next few years “Full Timing” in their RV as they criss-crossed the country visiting national parks and grandchildren along the way. They eventually settled down in their lakefront home in DeBary, Florida, just outside Orlando, close to many of their grandchildren, which they called their own personal Disney World.

Jay Conrad Levinson lived a life that changed the world and touched profoundly the lives of everyone that knew him

On October 20th 2012, a memorial service was held with his family and many of his friends aboard the St. John’s Rivership, honoring his request to have his ashes sprinkled across Lake Monroe where he lived.

He also has some ashes sprinkled in the Sonoran Desert, one of his favorite places on Earth, along with some ashes sprinkled with a planting of a memorial tree in his front yard by his grandchildren.

And finally, as a world traveler, a portion of his ashes were placed in a bottle and set sail in the ocean along with his picture, biography, and a letter from his wife, asking anyone who finds him to take a picture and email her, telling where he was found, and then sending him back into the ocean to continue on his grand journey.

Jay is survived by his wife, Jeannie Levinson and five children: daughter, Amy Levinson (Dean Worgan); daughter, Ginger Adkins (Frank Adkins); son, Jeremy Huffman (Samantha Huffman); daughter, Christy Huffman (Tara Wenig); son, Joshua Huffman (Marissa Cart).

Grandchildren: Sage Scofield, Seth Pickett, Thurston Smith, Austin Adkins, Blake Adkins, Cali Adkins, Michelle Staruk (Michael), Steven Livernois (Kelsey), Heidi Livernois (Edgar), Elexa Hussien (Moe), Hayley Huffman (James), Zachary Huffman, Jon-Thomas Huffman, Ava Huffman, Alyssa Huffman, Leighton Huffman, and Caden Huffman.

Great Grandchildren: DeMarcus Johnson, Daute Johnson, Darren Johnson, Landon Staruk and Ethan Willard.

Nephews: Robert Pope (Aga), George Reskin (Peggy), Glen Reskin, Larry Meyerson (Debbie), Mitch Myerson,

Nieces: Gina Mandell (Joel), Nicole Wagner (Eric), Melinda Miller, Corliss Meyerson

Beloved Pets: Llaso Apso puppy, Monroe and Siamese kitty, Marilyn,

…and countless extended family, friends and colleagues who will all help carry on his wide-eyed excitement for life and his legacy of love.

All the best…

Jeannie & Amy Levinson

PS: We are now in the process of forming an advisory board for Guerrilla Marketing International, to seek guidance and leadership. To preserve, protect and grow Jay’s legacy, we’ve chosen one of Jay’s dear friends publishers, David Hancock of Morgan James Publishing to act as the director of this advisory board.
