My Dad

Carol is one the caregivers helping my dad.  I have experienced the positive impact my dad has had on so many people.  She summarizes it well:

I just wanted to pass on that yesterday and today I have been interviewing your father for some assessments I have to complete.   He is one special, amazing person!   I really enjoyed my time talking with him.  I wish everyone could have such a positive, accepting outlook on life (including myself some days!) .   When I was asking him questions about his life – he spoke so fondly of your mother that it nearly brought me to tears.   I enjoyed listening to his stories of his time in the Air Force as well – he is so proud of that.   He also spoke so fondly of you and your siblings.    

In my 20 years of my career, meeting someone like your father is a rarity.  I’m fortunate to have had the opportunity, although not in an ideal situation, to meet your father.”

Stephen R. Pohlit, my dad and I am so grateful to have been able to tell him today that I am immensely proud that he is my father and I Love Him.

The Secret To Beating Business Profit Plans

“Steve, I am so grateful for how you have helped me understand my business and how to achieve profitable growth. “

…This comment is direct from one of my clients whose 2010 profits are on track to exceed plan by at least 50%. Exceeding plan by 50% is worth nearly $350,000. This is one very happy client and there are many more.

What is the one component that every successful client says is the reason they are achieving business profit goals?

The answer is consistently taking action on those areas of their business that make the most difference in growing business revenue and profits.

How do successful business owners and managers consistently guide their companies to outstanding profit performance?

Most have a business coach/mentor who guides them on remaining focused and holds them accountable for taking the right action.

When I look at the difference in business performance among the clients I coach it always comes down to taking directed action or not.

What does directed action mean?

Directed action is a sequential path of steps that achieves business revenue and profit goals.  It is common for business owners to actually be experienced in what to do but are not consistently implementing.  In other cases, they are taught what to do and always held accountable for taking action.

As a business consultant and executive coach with very valuable experience running companies owned by others as well as my own companies (click here for my resume) I know what works and even more importantly I know the mistakes most  make.

What is the number one mistake made by business owners and managers?

That mistake is thinking they are the only one who can do what needs to be done.  I am always working on the mindset with the people I coach of leveraging tasks that must be done and training them on effective leveraging of those tasks.  I address the mindset of the person running the company. In the case of businesses working with employees or contractors, we are consistently looking at ways to have everyone become more valuable by leveraging tasks to less costly people or technology.  Systems, meaning the way people work and the tools they use are the key to effective leveraging.

LWT: Lead Without A Title by Robin Sharma …Get This Book Today

…”the riskiest place you can be is trying to do the same things in the same way as you have always done them. Few thngs are as foolish as hoping old behaviors will somehow present new results.”

“Every one of us alive with life can passionately drive positive change in the face of negative conditions and you need no title to do that.”

This book offers a road map for transformational thinking and results. What may surprise many people is the how important our attitude is toward consistently small steps forward each day is to achieving huge business and personal success. Written in the style of a story, you will find yourself rapidly moving through this book wanting to know what develops next. I also think you will be going back to this book, making notes and concluding what adjustment you will be making in your life and business.

I love “The Leader Who Had No Title” by Robin Sharma and I know you will too.

You Could Have Heard A Pin Drop

From time to time when you follow this blog you will notice how I stand for freedom and peace. My brother sent me an email with these stories. They struck a chord. I hope they do for you as well.

——————————————-

JFK’S Secretary of State, Dean Rusk, was in France in the early 60’s when DeGaule decided to pull out of NATO. DeGaule said he wanted all US military out of France as soon as possible.

Rusk
responded “does that include those who are buried here?

DeGuale did not respond.

You could have heard a pin drop
———————————-
When in England , at a fairly large conference, Colin Powell was asked by the Archbishop of Canterbury if our plans for Iraq were just an example of empire building by George Bush.

He answered by saying, ‘Over the years, the United States has sent many of its fine young men and women into great peril to fight for freedom beyond our borders. The only amount of land we have ever asked for in return is enough to bury those that did not return.

You could have heard a pin drop.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There was a conference in France where a number of international engineers were taking part, including French and American. During a break, one of the French engineers came back into the room saying ‘Have you heard the latest dumb stunt Bush has done? He has sent an aircraft carrier to Indonesia to help the tsunami victims. What does he intended to do, bomb them?’

A Boeing engineer stood up and replied quietly: ‘Our carriers have three hospitals on board that can treat several hundred people; they are nuclear powered and can supply emergency electrical power to shore facilities; they have three cafeterias with the capacity to feed 3,000 people three meals a day, they can produce several thousand gallons of fresh water from sea water each day, and they carry half a dozen helicopters for use in transporting victims and injured to and
from their flight deck.

We have eleven such ships; how many does France have?’

You could have heard a pin drop.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A U.S. Navy Admiral was attending a naval conference that included Admirals from the U.S. , English, Canadian, Australian and French Navies. At a cocktail reception, he found himself standing with a large group of Officers that included personnel from most of those countries. Everyone was chatting away in English as they sipped their drinks but a
French admiral suddenly complained that, whereas Europeans learn many languages, Americans learn only English. He then asked, ‘Why is it that we always have to speak English in these conferences rather than speaking French?’

Without hesitating, the American Admiral replied, ‘Maybe it’s because the Brit’s, Canadians, Aussie’s and Americans arranged it so you wouldn’t have to speak German.’

You could have heard a pin drop.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Robert Whiting , an elderly gentleman of 83, arrived in Paris by plane. At French Customs, he took a few minutes to locate his passport in his carry on.

“You have been to France before, monsieur?” the customs officer asked sarcastically.

Mr. Whiting admitted that he had been to France previously.

“Then you should know enough to have your passport ready.”

The American said, ‘The last time I was here, I didn’t have to show it…”

“Impossible. Americans always have to show your passports on arrival in France !”

The American senior gave the Frenchman a long hard look. Then he quietly explained, ”Well, when I came ashore at Omaha Beach on D-Day in 1944 to help liberate this country, I couldn’t find a single Frenchmen to show a passport to.”

You could have heard a pin drop.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am proud to be of this land, AMERICA

Sending you energy of health, happiness, prosperity

Business Marketing Opportunities on Facebook vs MySpace

MySpace vs. Facebook Comparison Video

Jeff Hoffman prepared a nice video on the statistical differences between MySpace and Facebook. This video is about 9 minutes long and is worth the time. The comments I posted in response to this material follow:

Jeff does a real nice job of presenting data on the demographic differences between Facebook and MySpace. What is most clear to me is that the demographics of both sites are shifting rapidly. There are people who have been successful building networks on Facebook and who are now working to do the same on MySpace. So I wouldn’t ignore MySpace based on this information.

However, given limited resources, Jeff objectively delivers the message to businesses to spend time marketing on Facebook vs. MySpace. For me there remains a very serious question when considering Facebook vs. all other marketing tools. That is whether Facebook should be used at all. I don’t see compelling evidence of the value for companies spending time developing social networking on Facebook. However, I advise all companies , entrepreneurs, and solopreneurs to be actively developing a presence on at least Facebook. I offer that advice because I believe we are just at the beginning of understanding how to market effectively on social medial sites including Facebook.

Thank you Jeff for this video and I look forward to more content on this topic.

PS One comment I failed to include is the potentially high ROI for paid advertising on Facebook and MySpace. This should be tested.

Social Media Marketing – Advice on Using Twitter From John Reese

You probably know John Reese is a very experienced credible and successful Internet marketer. I have benefited a great deal from John’s courses and newsletters. This message from John came to me by email and I am posting it here. Like John I have been skeptical about Social Media marketing including Twitter. One thing about John is that he tests everything and you will see he has been accumulating data on driving traffic to his sites and particularly his blog using Twitter. After you read John’s message come back and take these action steps:

1. set up your account at www.twitter.com
2. look up www.twitter.com/stevepohlit and follow me
3. look up www.twitter.com/johnreese and follow him
4. follow John’s guidance in adding people to follow
5. notice how people post to Twitter and start posting regularly.
(I use Ping.fm to post to Twitter and Facebook. It is supposed to update my accounts at LinkedIn and MySpace but I don’t see that working well. Maybe you will have more luck.)

Two final points from me:

1. this is part of my signature on my outgoing emails:

Network with me on

Facebook: http://tinyurl.com/4yyhf2

LinkedIn: http://www.linkedin.com/in/stevepohlit

MySpace: http://www.myspace.com/stevepohlit

Follow me on Twitter http://www.twitter.com/stevepohlit

2. Notice how I discovered valuable content written by an authority on a topic where I have some experience added comments and now publish it on my blog – with no changes to the original message. This is another way of generating valuable content for your blog (hint, hint)

————————————————-

Email from John Reese starts now:

If you haven’t yet created a Twitter account
you’re really missing out.

This service has exploded in growth
in the past few months and I don’t see
it slowing down anytime soon. There
are now MILLIONS of users and it’s
becoming mainstream.

I’ve been running some interesting
tests and I’m already seeing some
great traffic results — far greater than
the traffic from Facebook or any
other “Web 2.0” service.

Facebook and the others certainly
have their place, but Twitter is more
powerful. At first I didn’t really “get it”
but now I do and my traffic stats
don’t lie. IT WORKS.

As a communications tool, Twitter is
probably only 2nd to Email right now.
It’s a great way to network with people
as well as to drive visitors to any of
your sites, blog posts, etc.

BUT DON’T WAIT…

Create a Twitter account NOW and
start ‘following’ people you want.
Others will eventually follow you in
return. Observe how others post
and you’ll quickly learn the culture,
etiquette, and uses for Twitter.

It’s not rocket science. In fact,
it’s a lot of fun.

You really need to start today because
the sooner you start the sooner your
followers list will start growing and more
people will see your posts — which will
then virally grow from there.

*******VERY IMPORTANT********

MAKE SURE TO FOLLOW ME!

(I’m actively posting all the time.)

Create an account then go here:
http://twitter.com/johnreese

Click the “Follow” link that shows
under my photo.

That’s it. Everytime I post you’ll
see it in your main “timeline”
area.

* After you click to “Follow” me
look at the right-hand side of
my profile page. Click the blue
“Followers” link and you can see
all the people currently following
my posts. Follow some of these
other marketers so you can get
involved.

Twitter is extremely VIRAL.
When you make posts (called
“tweets”) they can be exposed
to all the friends (followers)
of others. Then they can choose
to follow you.

I think Twitter is going to really
evolve into a “must use”
marketing tool. It’s a great way
to announce you’ve just made
a new blog post, released a
new product, or anything else
you’re up to.

I’m already seeing 400+ visitors
each time I make a tweet that
I’ve made a new blog post.

So trust me, this is no flash in
the pan. In fact, this may be
one of the most powerful marketing
tools ever — it just depends how
it evolves.

But so far you’d be crazy not to
use it. It’s producing great results.

Take 2 minutes to create an
account — heck you’ll want to
do it now so you can at least
get your name before someone
else takes it. Or your company
or product name, etc.

Just go to http://www.Twitter.com
