Getting Through – One of the Best Conversations You’ll Ever Have With Your Spouse

Ever notice how quickly a conversation between you and your spouse can go downhill with just a few poorly chosen words?

Are your conversations a war of words or a test of silence?

Now, there are ways to improve and restore great communication. The following shows how.

ONLY FOR MEN: John, a 43-year-old management consultant, and his wife Doris, a 39-year-old illustrator, are farther away due to communication problems. One day during a time of non-contradiction, John brought Doris aside and looked at him firmly, but gently, and asked him, “Doris, have I ever made you feel that you don’t deserve to listen?” With that, Doris’s eyes dropped attention to John’s attention and interest.

When his body language, more than his words, showed that he might have made him feel that way on many occasions, John insisted and said, “Doris, look at me, please. Just because I don’t know how to listen to you the right way doesn’t mean you don’t deserve to be listened to. Don’t let anyone, including me, ever make you feel that you don’t deserve to listen, because that’s the way it is, and I’m sorry if I’ve made you feel that. “

Now Doris wants to accept John, so things are going well. However, if you try this with your wife and she jumps down your throat with, “Of course that’s right. You’re one of the worst listeners I know!” do not be discouraged. Take a deep breath and answer: “I know. That’s why I apologize for that now. You don’t deserve to be ignored like that.” Chances are that he or she will be calmer and, one or two days later, can apologize for his hostility and even thank you for your attitude.

ONLY FOR WOMEN: Another example involves Nancy, a 51-year-old mother of two grown children, and her husband Ted, a 53-year-old plumber. As in the example above, they become distant due to interference in communication. One day, Nancy brought Ted aside, looked straight into his eyes and asked him: “Ted, have I ever made you feel that I don’t respect you or admire you or that I have stopped thinking that you are the greatest man I know and I am fortunate to have you in my life ? “

Needless to say, Ted was stunned and speechless, showing, as in the previous example, that yes, Nancy had caused her to have exactly that negative feeling. Nancy persisted and continued: “Ted, just because I get stressed and sometimes bring it to you, because you’re my safety valve, doesn’t mean I don’t thank my lucky star for having you in my life. And sorry if I make you feel worse about yourself. “

Starting a conversation this way is very successful because when there is tension between you and someone else, the only thing that will not make self-defense higher is a sincere apology. Apology also makes the person who apologizes feel better because it helps melt the cold and bitterness in a …

How to Attract Any Woman, Anywhere, at Any Time!

It may seem easy for some guys, but attracting women is usually pretty tough for others. In fact, some guys think it is so hard that they have trouble even getting started talking to a woman. Of course, if you know the right way to approach, talk to, and act in front of a woman, you have a much better chance of succeeding. Forget everything you know about attracting women, and listen to this advice.

All human actions are either driven by subconscious or conscious actions. Almost all women base their attraction on subconscious thoughts and feelings. This is the part of the brain that they cannot control, and is based on pure emotions. What most guys don’t know is that looks have almost nothing to do with a woman’s subconscious reaction, so the key to getting a woman to feel magnetically attracted to you will be based more on the signals you are sending to her.

So what do you think she would like more? A shy, wimpy man who doesn’t even have enough confidence in himself to look her in the eye, or a confident man who will look her straight in the eyes with confidence and authority?

Once you have her defenses down, this is the time for you to come in and show her that you’re not like the rest of the guys. You should convince her, through your humor and listening, that she can have a great time with you. If you follow these two rules, you’ll find that almost any woman will become desperately attracted to you.…

BBW Dating Websites – What a Good Online Dating Site Should Include

Online dating websites are not only popular, but are proven to work if you are careful about using them. To get the most out of an online dating website you need to decide what features are the most important to you.

Deciding what type of match you are looking for is one of the features that helps you determine how you will search; for casual dating, serious relationships or just intimacy. How will you communicate with your possible compatibility? Having the option to use your favorite website communication tool or multimedia tool is a plus.

Why Bother Starting Your Own Business? Get Clear on Your Motivation Before Taking the Leap

You’re a passionate person. You love what you do. You may have an itch to run a business, or the itch may only be telling you to leave the job you have because it doesn’t interest you any more. After illuminating your true passions, you could easily find a job working in an industry/business to support that passion. You could do what you love without the emotional and financial risks and potential headaches of running your own business.

Business owners must keep showing up everyday, sick or not, tired or not, irritated or not, and commit to learning more, trying new things to keep the business running. Setting up your own business, especially with employees, requires commitment, focus, attention, and constant motivation to keep learning and innovating.

So, what’s the point of opening your own store/launching your own practice/selling your own goods? Why bother taking on all of the risk and making the commitment?

Below is a short list of motivations, some of which only skim the surface of the true core motivation. In order to keep showing up day in and day out, you need to know your core motivation. It could be to:

contribute to the world in a specific way;

have control over results from sharing ideas;

reap all the rewards;

have a flexible schedule;

be your own boss;

make more money;

stay at home with the family;

feel emotionally healthier.

How do you find out what actually motivates you? As a three-year old child ceaselessly asks “Why? So What?” this exercise uses the same questions to get to the core of what really motivates you. Take a few minutes and write down what you want and then answer the question, “So What?” until you get to the core motivation. Here’s an example of what it looks like:

Example:

“I want to make enough money so I don’t have to work anymore.” So what?

“So I can leave the emotionally draining workplace I’m at now.” So what?

“So I can spend some time with my children when they are awake, not briefly seeing them before bedtime.” So what?

“Because taking care of and having a supportive relationship with my children is the most important thing in the world for me.”

While the initial motivation was making money, the deeper motivation is the relationships with children. This deeper motivation will impact many priorities and decisions about the business such as opening hours, when employees may call you, et cetera.

Take your deepest motivations and keep them written in front of you as you build your business. They will keep you going when things don’t go your way and remind you about the reasons to celebrate really big when they do.…

How to Reinvent Your Business to Stay Competitive in a Challenging Economy

The last couple of years were very challenging for entrepreneurs. One of the main issues, besides just staying in business, is how to maintain a competitive edge. Many small business owners had to lower their prices but other reinvented their businesses to still attract new clients. If you lower your price, you will need more clients to make the same amount of money were already making. Is that the best solution? There are ways to work smarter not harder!

How to attract more clients without losing money and staying competitive.

1. Repackage your services or products. For example, let’s say you sell your physical product for $299, you can now offer the digital version for half of the price. You won’t have to change anything on your marketing just redirect people to a different webpage and since it is less expensive, you may get more clients. You’re offering a new and abridged version of the product at a lower cost because you aren’t paying for the physical version. The most important part of this equation is to follow-up with the people who bought the digital version so you could sell them later the more complete physical version at your regular price. If people like your program, they will be more willing to buy again from you.

Another example, if you work one-on-one with clients, consider offering a group session at a reduced price. Your clients will each pay a little less but since you will be working with a group at the end of the hour you find you’ve more than made up the difference. For instance if you have one client who pays $250 per one hour session, 4 sessions equal $1000, if you offer a group session at $150 per person per hour and you have 5 people to a group, 4 sessions now equal $3000. At the end of the sessions, you have worked the same amount but triple your revenue.

2. Work with a more specific niche. Target clients with a very specific problem that you can solve and offer a solution different form your competitors. What do you offer that makes you and your product unique?

For example, if you have been targeting women business owners try honing your focus to working mom entrepreneurs if you are a mom. Based on your experiences you may have unique solutions to balance their lives with their businesses. Sharing your unique success stories and tips can make you indispensable!

In one of my business I work exclusively with French speaking entrepreneurs starting businesses in the US. I was in their shoes seven years ago, when I moved. I know their problems, obstacles, frustrations, we have the same culture. With my knowledge of the American culture from a French point of view I can help them to adapt their business, teach them market the “American way”, and the steps to start and success a business here. Develop your communication and services around the people you are targeting who can …
