Now Here’s An Awesome Find – Check This Out!!

I was contacted by a company called Blow Birthday Cards.  I had a really great conversation with the owner, Jerry.  He explained to me how the business came about, we brainstormed together, we came up with a marketing plan, and now we’re working together.  It came together fairly easy.  Why?  Well, probably because I love his concept and he is extremely reliable and trustworthy.  Sometimes I just have a good feeling about people.  And I definitely have a good feeling about Jerry (and Blow Birthday Cards).

Blow Birthday Cards lets you search for a specific card, like chocolate or heaven or octopus or toast or even Zoltar (wasn’t that from the movie BIG with Tom Hanks?).  Anyway, all cards are alphabetized on the website. You simply find the topic you want and click on the card you like.  You can then sign the card yourself by hand writing your personal message on a piece of paper, taking a picture of it with your cell phone, and then adding it onto the card through the website.  It’s super cool!!!

You then pay for the card ($4.95 with FREE mailing) – yep, cheaper than most nonpersonal cards in stores.  And the card goes in the mail just minutes later.  And your mom, dad, sister, son, aunt, teacher (whoever) gets the card just a couple days later (like regular mail).  How fast (and cool) is that?

Did you FORGET about someone’s birthday?  Do you have to get a card in the mail ASAP?  Don’t take the time to go to the store, pick one out, sign it, and mail it.  Just go to www.blowbirthdaycards.com and do it in your home, on your phone, in your pj’s.  Really!!!

You really have to check it out for yourself.  This is a super idea for just about anyone (especially husbands, well, at least for my husband).  But I really think busy moms could use this company more than anyone.  Think about it – not running to the store with the kids to “try” and shop for the perfect birthday cards – GENIUS!!!  Not to mention, you can have your kids draw a picture or write a message to Grandma or Aunty.  How cute would that be????

OK…so go here:  www.blowbirthdaycards.com and CHECK IT OUT!!!

Oh yeah, and since I work with business owners, and KNOW how crazy busy they can be, and also KNOW that they KNOW how important it is to make their workplace personal and inviting for their employees, then they should use Blow Birthday Cards to personalize birthday cards for those employees.  Right?  Good idea?  I think so!!!

What’s Your Why? (Guest Post)

by Paul Hatrak (Focal Point Coaching) in New York

Webster’s Dictionary defines “Purpose” as the reason Why something is done or used.

In September 2009 British/American Author Simon Sinek filmed one of the best TED Talks illustrating the concept of Purpose titled “Start With Why: How Great Leaders inspire everyone to take action.”

His theory is that great companies and leaders all Think, Act and Communicate in the same way and it’s the complete opposite of everyone else.

That’s because they explain their Why up front, representing their purpose, cause or belief.

Many companies today have a mission statement which drives HOW you follow a path and a vision statement which describes WHAT is the destination or goal.

But how many companies have a purpose statement?

A Purpose Statement captures succinctly WHY the organization exists and WHAT it does.

And what about you as a professional?

Do you have a purpose statement?

Simon says…people don’t buy WHAT you do they buy WHY you do it.

In my opinion you will make more waves in your pond if people believe you are the best person to help them define and achieve success on their terms.

That’s my WHY!

My purpose is help business owners define and achieve success on their terms.

And in many cases faster than they could on their own.

And HOW do I do that?

I involve them in the process 100%.

I begin every workshop with my favorite quote from Benjamin Franklin… Tell me and I forget, Teach Me and I remember, Involve me and I learn.

Simon also says…The goal is not to do business with everyone who needs what you have, the goal is to do business with people who believe what you believe.

And in the end, like Glinda, the good Witch from the Wizard of Oz says to Dorothy, I help my clients believe and realize they’ve had the power all along.
