Attitude, Attitude, Attitude – Turning Your Prospects Into Customers

Attitude, Attitude, Attitude – Turning Your Prospects Into Customers

In the real estate world they say the three most important things are location, location, location. In sales it is attitude, attitude, attitude! If you love what you do, love your product or service, and love sharing it with others then turning your prospects into customers is a much easier sell!

When I go into to train, coach or develop strategy with a sales team, the first thing I gauge is the sales leaders attitude and level of enthusiasm. If the leader is not passionate, excited and motivated about their product and selling in general, than how can I possibly expect the sales team and the prospects to be excited? Attitude is always the place to start. Get your attitude right and the rest will fall into place.

To sell you have to engage; to engage to you have to communicate; and to communicate you have to connect. If you want to close more sales then you need to ensure that connection is positive, upbeat and enthusiastic. If you want your prospect to buy, then you must convey your pride, excitement and confidence about your product or service.

Attitude is vital to the sales process, and the great thing about that is that attitude is completely controllable. Sure it may be more of a struggle for some than others, but at the end of the day you have a choice whether you are positive or negative. Whether you infuse energy or deplete it.

Remember, buying is emotional. People buy products or services based on how they feel. Certainly the features, facts and statistics play a role, but it is the emotional connection to the sales person and the product or service that moves the prospect to action. So how do you convey the right attitude?

First you have to have the right attitude. Do a gut check and get real with yourself. Are you positive and upbeat? Do you believe in your product and does it show? What specific things do you do or say to get your message across. Ask yourself, if and how often you smile. Smiling – like attitude – is contagious. Increasing your smile factor will increase your likability and increase your ability to connect with your prospects. A great attitude makes you likable an approachable, two important elements if you want to turn your prospects into customers.

Second, analyze your words and your body language. Are they positive and are they benefit driven? Asking family and friends for feedback here is crucial. Often, we do not even realize the negative or sarcastic undertones our speech or body language convey, and asking others their observations and opinions can make a big difference. Relaxing your ego and taking their advice will make the difference. Those minor adjustments can go along way in delivering the right attitude.

Third, what is the talk going on inside your head? If you are like most people it is pretty negative. Why is that? Why do we spend all day telling ourselves negative things, don’t we have enough challenges? So, work on your “head talk” and routinely increase the number of positive messages rolling through your mind. That “head talk” will translate into positive conversations, body language and compliments to your prospects. Thought dictates action and action dictates outcome. It all starts with what is going on in our heads.

Fourth, if you want a positive attitude you need surround yourself with positive people. Now that seems simple doesn’t it? For many of us, the need to help, feel sorry for or commiserate with others is a constant distraction. A distraction we cannot afford if you want to be good at sales. My favorite quote (which has become my mantra) is “you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” If you want to be positive and upbeat, if you want to convey energy and enthusiasm then don’t hang out with negative people. It really is that simple. If the individuals you spend time with are positive, upbeat and energetic, then you cannot help but be that way too.

Attitude is so important in sales. You can spend money for the best training, hire the best coaches, sell amazing products and still struggle to meet your sales goal. If you adjust your attitude, increase your enthusiasm and master the art of conveying confidence about your product you’ll find it easy to turn your prospects into customers!

If He Is Being Stubborn Turn Him Into Your Love Again – Make Your Ex Boyfriend Want You Like Crazy

If He Is Being Stubborn Turn Him Into Your Love Again – Make Your Ex Boyfriend Want You Like Crazy

It is heart breaking to have your boyfriend breakup with you, but when he won’t communicate it can be frustrating as well. But the truth is, you should not try to communicate with him right after the breakup. If you have been calling him constantly, that might be why he is acting stubborn. You need to learn how to make your ex boyfriend want you like crazy.

When you are in his face all of the time, did it ever occur to you that you are being stubborn too? He probably asked for some space or a break, but you are not respecting his wishes. If you want to make him want you again, you need to change your approach. Stop giving the appearance of a weak and needy woman and show him you can live your life without him.

The best way to deal with a stubborn ex boyfriend is not to deal with him at all. Do not give him the satisfaction of rejecting you time and time again. Cut off all contact with him and disappear from his radar. When you stop trying to get him back, you will get his attention. He will wonder what happened to you and what you are doing. It is human nature to miss something that disappears when you are used to having it around. It makes you want to find it and get it back.

This is what your ex boyfriend will be thinking after he has not heard from you for a few weeks. He will begin to think of you in a more positive manner. The problems that caused the split will start to fade and he will be remembering the good things about you. The more he thinks, the more he will want to see you. When he reaches this point, it will be time to let him see you again and knock his socks off.

Get with some friends and go out to the places he hangs out. Be sure to look your best and let him see you having a great time. That will let him know that you are not sitting around waiting for him to call. When he sees all of the guys flirting with you, he will want to grab you and tell them you belong to him. Suddenly he will not be stubborn anymore. Seeing that he might be close to losing you will turn him back into your love again.

Part of the male psychology of getting a man back, is making him feel you no longer want him. By taking yourself out of his life you have turned your ex boyfriend into jelly and he will now be as sweet as can be when he comes begging you to forgive him.

Breathe Life Into Your Data Using Flash Widgets

Breathe Life Into Your Data Using Flash Widgets

I have lost count of the number of times I have looked at charts on a website and said to myself, ‘What, is it 1990s already?’. And incredible as it may sound, but even the most cutting edge corporates refuse to move beyond, what I call the dreaded Bar-Pie Syndrome. The web has evolved from the days of HTML-modesty and its time your charts did too.

So the next time you are looking for a way to visualize your data better, here are three very simple factors you should keep in mind.

1. Try to look for charts that don’t have MS Excel written all over them. Readers will simply not pay attention to your data. And this is bad. You are probably better off displaying a table of data than boring charts that visitors overlook. I mean, really. Your data deserves better.

2. Make a conscious effort to set aside column/bar or pie charts when you start out, to see if there are other charts that can represent your data better or equally well. This does not mean you will throw bar/pie charts out of your purview. A couple of ideas:

If your work involves project management, look for Gantt Charts to represent the work modules on a timeline. Connect related tasks, put it up on your internal system so the entire team can see.

If you have a rating system on your website, how about retiring the almost retro ‘stars’ for nice sliding rating bars with an indicator the user can pull to a certain rating value. How about having ratings on several parameters, and the chart automatically calculates the overall average and displays it on a dashboard gauge?

3. Information today loses relevance in minutes. This is the age of real time data and your charts should reflect that urgency. Whenever you can, go for real time gauges that update automatically and provide the visitor/user data that is highly updated and relevant. Ideal scenarios for real time gauges:

If your work involves Stock market or Financial Data monitoring then you must use real time gauges. Choose catchy looking gauges to add that bling to your otherwise mundane data. It is the only way you can draw more attention to a data that you know hundreds of websites on the internet are displaying.

Real time gauges are invaluable for network monitoring applications. How about an animated speedometer in place of the bar chart for that bandwidth meter? Sounds good, right?

Process monitoring is another place where real time gauges are not only useful, but crucial.

If you are determined to break the stereotypes, you will. And I say, today is a good day to start. Get Flash Widgets. Now.

FusionWidgets is a collection of Flash Widgets including Speedometer Chart, Gantt Chart, Linear Gauge and a variety of other gauges. All the widgets are easy-to-use and entirely customizable. Go get your copy!

3 Steps to Making Managers Into Leaders

3 Steps to Making Managers Into Leaders

When hiring and promoting people into manager roles, many times those who get the positions are those who work the hardest at their current jobs. Rewarding hard work is always an intelligent choice for those in upper management, but in some cases, the hardest workers do not have outstanding leadership qualities. When this happens, some effort must be expended in making managers into leaders.

First, you must teach your management candidates how to think outside the role of an employee. While they may have worked for a long period of time beside the people they will be leading, they must learn how to step out of the co-worker role and into their position of leadership. Watch for employees who may think they can take advantage of their friends, and nip this problem in the bud.

Second, evaluate their personal and business traits to see which leadership qualities need the most work. Place them in situations where they must work on these issues and hone their weaknesses. Even when someone does not naturally have a particular leadership quality, most of these traits can be learned with practice and reinforcement.

Finally, build up their confidence so that they can step into their new role and perform their duties as a manager without any hesitation. For many people, the most difficult part of assuming a leadership role is their confidence in their abilities to lead others. Once they have conquered their own insecurities, taking responsibility for others will become easier and those who work under them will be able to treat them with the respect that they deserve.

In some cases, making managers into leaders simply does not work. There are some people whose personalities are just not cut out for a leadership role and that is perfectly acceptable. In such cases, the best move is to find a position within the company where their strengths can be used to further their own career, as well as to create a stronger organization. Not everyone is a born leader, but nearly anyone can be trained to be a very effective manager with decent leadership qualities.

Making managers into leaders is one of many topics you can learn about at Leadership Made Simple. This periodic journal of practical leadership and management tips provides great material about leadership development. Right now, you can subscribe to this free journal to receive four great videos that can teach you to become a better leader or manager:

Don’t Let Your Story Book Relationship Turn Into a Category 3-Type Hurricane

Don’t Let Your Story Book Relationship Turn Into a Category 3-Type Hurricane

You have been in a wonderful love relationship for sometime now. It is everything you always wanted. You two are very close. Your partner has been warm and loving. There have been no real problems. You have pretty much agreed on everything. A break up is the farthest thing from your thoughts.

The love-making has been great; extremely satisfying. You do so many things together as a couple. All of your friends and family envy your love and relationship. Except for a very few minor ups and downs, everything has been going in an almost story book fashion.

You cannot do enough for each other. You give each other the space you need. You each have your own friends and mutual friends that you spend time with.  Even after all this time together, you find each other desirable and enjoy each others company. 

There is a sense of calm and security that you have been feeling. You have been basking in the glow of the sunny side of love. It is like a dream. It looks like your story book relationship will last forever.  You are content.

Until now, that is!

What happened all of a sudden? Hurricane Season has hit with no warning!

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the federal agency that focuses on the condition of the oceans and the atmosphere tells us that the Atlantic hurricane season lasts about 6 months. However, it seems like this unnamed storm in your personal life is about to put an end to your relationship.

We all know the catastrophic damage hurricanes can do. Winds can exceed 155 miles per hour, spawn tornadoes and cause extensive damage from heavy rainfall and flying objects.

Hurricanes are classified into five categories based on their wind speed, central pressure, and damage potential. Category 3 hurricanes are considered major hurricanes causing major damage.

That’s what you relationship seems to be getting to. You and your partner have started arguments that last way longer than necessary. It seems like a tornado has hit. The damage from the flying angry words and the mistrust is about to cause extensive injury.  It looks like you could break up.

You have got to do something to make up before it is too late. This storm has been brewing for several weeks or maybe even months. You just did not notice the warning signs. You do not want to break up.

You cannot stop the destruction of a hurricane.  However, with care and consideration, you can stop major damage in your relationship if you are willing to take the time to find the cause and the effort it takes to make up and put it back together.

Create a Bit of Paris Into Your Apartment: Why not?

Create a Bit of Paris Into Your Apartment: Why not?
Being a style icon for the fashion world, Coco Chanel’s personal decorating style was very well-known. Her use of gilt mirrors, sparkly chandeliers, and sleek lines are legendary in Paris and beyond. You can emulate her style with some Parisian touches in your own space instead of spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to replicate the look and feel of Coco Chanel’s apartment at 31 Rue Cambon in Paris.

Begin by choosing a neutral palette. Chanel style relies on glamour in your accessories, not on your walls. Choose colors that make you think of suede, coffees, or clean whites. The wall color is simply the backdrop for your furniture and special additions, so be sure not to paint with a color that is overpowering.

If you are in the market for a new couch, choose one that is similar in color to your walls. Couches shouldn’t stand out in a room that evokes Chanel style. You can find microfiber sofas that would look great in a neutral room, as well as suede or buttery leather. Try to avoid cloth sofas, as the material will stand out too starkly in a room if you are trying to achieve a luxurious feel.

Gilt mirrors are a must have. Larger mirrors with carved wooden frames or beveled glass would look beautiful on the wall behind your sofa. If you can’t find what you are looking for in home stores, try various antique markets. Although the mirrors will be more costly, the look cannot be matched. You can often find replications in antique stores as well.

Lighting was perhaps the most important factor in a Paris apartment. Chandeliers and wall sconces were hung in each room. To match the style, find wrought iron wall sconces with candle-type lights. Chandeliers can be gilt gold or black iron, but be sure to avoid any modern styles as they will look out of place in your room. Table lamps that have crystal or glass stems with white shades look beautiful on your end tables.

It’s the little things that take a plain room and make it stunning. Coco Chanel focused on items she picked up in her travels. Large glass globes lined the coffee tables, hardback books filled the book shelves, and items such as small wooden masks were heavily used. Although purchasing these specific items would empty your bank balance very quickly, you can buy reproduction items in home stores that will fit the bill nicely.

The use of Chinese silk screens to divide rooms was one of the many signature pieces that Ms.Chanel used to bring color into her rooms. Chinese fabrics were stretched across screens and placed in vital areas. You can create your own screen with patterned fabric that you love.

What was one of the last, yet most important items that Coco Chanel used to decorate her apartment? Chanel Number 5 was liberally sprayed throughout her rooms on a daily basis. You may wish to use a different scent, but a spray of perfume or other fragrance really brings life to your space.

We can’t all have an apartment in Paris, but we can bring some of that style into our own homes by channeling the spirit of the Rue Cambon and adding luxurious touches to our rooms.

Fran has a love and flair for interior design and decorating with French influences. Her number one suggestion is to look at her favorite place for finding reversible braided area rugs and wool braided rugs.

Hire a programmer


If you are not a hard-core programmer, you can always outsource the programming part to others. You can check out at or any other out-sourcing website where you can post your job and hire experience programmer in MT4 to handle your codes. This process will take a bit of time as you will need to run and check if the software is working according to your manual trading and backward testing.
