One window closes, another one opens

Happy holidays to you. Each new season provides a clean slate for ideas and activities to continue to move forward. 
In my S.O.S. (Simple Open Strategies) for Challenging Times group on LinkedIn, you can “drop in” on discussions raised by small business owners and enjoy tips and tactics to move through this daunting time. Find us under Groups in alpha order.
Here are some topics we’re working on:
  • Listened to your voice message lately? If U hear, “Sorry I missed you . . . or “We’re either on the phone or …,” or, “I’ll return your call at my earliest convenience,” change it instantly! Instead, use this moment as a 30 second invitation to your website or next event or invite people to leave their phone number and message and let them know what’s new from you.
  • What clever marketing angles do you observe from clients and companies you patronize?
  • Looking for seed money? Check this out. There is little risk and adds energy to your site. http://www.kickstarter.com/ 
  • Other terrific resources are Aardvark for research and crowdsourcing elements, Squidoo and all things Seth Godin -MC

It’s the little things that make a difference. Please join us on LinkedIn and innovate together.



As a credentialed business coach and analyst, one of my primary functions is to work with individuals and company managers to clarify where they are presently, where they would like to advance, and what tools they have and need to achieve their desired outcome.

I use a variety of tools to assess perceptions including Platinum Rule instruments, my experience and training in assessing behavior. My preferred tool is the EQ-i®, emotional intelligence inventory. I have specialized training on the EQ-i® and DISC Inventories and access to multiple other sources including a company culture index. I prefer the EQ-i® because it is the least judgmental instrument I have found. It focuses on strengths and areas of development related to the goals set by the individual. For example, people are more likely to apply the EQ-i®’s information rather than label themselves by the Myers-Briggs categories.
