Can You Take Criticism? Vicki Irvin
Only a couple more days before the Aspiring Womenâ€™s Real Estate Investorâ€™s Retreat and I am excited! I have women flying in from Texas, Florida, and Georgia to name a few! We are running around finalizing details today and tomorrow I am off to the hair salon and shopping so I can look my best, we are being filmed! Superwoman Lifestyle is sponsoring this all womenâ€™s event. I am working on my next womenâ€™s retreat already, but this one will be for all the women business owners and entrepreneurs who are seeking ways to increase their client base and explode their income. Women are struggling to keep their businesses afloat and it is because they lack the marketing knowledge. I have been coaching women on how to learn and employ the same strategies that I use for all my businesses that keeps my events jam-packed with no shortage of clients in ANY economy. The main thing is you have to invest in educating yourself! I gladly pay to belong to mastermind groups of the most successful people and pays off BIG TIME!
We talked last week about the power of the mastermind. I had mentioned that my husband was away at one of his masterminds with Yanik Silver. He presented a project I am working on for critique. Long story short, they ripped me up big time! But I recognize the criticism is constructive and no matter how brutal, is designed to give me vital improvements that will impact my bottom line in a big way. You see, one change to your web site or sales letter can increase your conversion by thousands of dollars. That is why studying and becoming an avid student of marketing is what can change your whole business life, regardless of what industry you are in! Knowing the value of education and investing in yourself is what makes you successful. As I am typing this, I just received an email from a real estate investing student of mine. She has increased her net worth by $500,000 since coming through my real estate investing training and just flipped a property and netted about $45,000 for her bank account. When I think about the type of woman she is, she is front and center at all of our ongoing trainings and stays connected to our group. She sees the value in educating and investing in herself. Once you have that mind-set down, the tides will turn in your favor. NEVER, EVER be cheap with your education! For those of you who have written to me about needing a coach or mentor, you will be receiving a response soon from me. Anyone interested in my business coaching can send an email to: email@example.com
Are you half-stepping? I was out to eat the other day and I was curiously watching what
women were ordering. They were trying to be healthy by ordering grilled or baked chicken but when it came to those side ordersâ€¦.forget about it! Eating baked or grilled chicken alone is not going to cut it! Side orders like mac and cheese will ruin all of your hard work. Do not fool yourself into thinking it is okay. The same thing goes for appetizers. I know how it is when you go out to eat. Youâ€™re starving and ordering those yummy appetizers is hard to resist. But if you drink some water and have a small salad before your dinner comes, you are curbing the hunger, eating healthy and preventing yourself from overdosing on calories. Letâ€™s face it, as tasty as appetizers are, they are rarely healthyâ€¦fried calamari, quesadillas, nachos, buffalo wings, those seem to be the main ones that creep up! SO try that little trick next time you are out. Your waistline will thank you. Remember that sayingâ€¦a moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips! LOL
We all know managing your time can be hard to do. Itâ€™s difficult to sit at a desk and work when the weather is nice. There is this constant struggle to focus on work, yet take some time out to do something enjoyable, even if itâ€™s just letting the sun shine on your face, or taking a nice walk with your ipod on.
- Try it, I guarantee you will feel refreshed!
Vicki Irvin formerly a human resources executive, quit her 9-5 job to become a real estate investor. She created a multi-million dollar real estate coaching business in 12 months by applying marketing strategies and techniques that many have never even heard of. After being asked by women nationally how she managed to build and juggle a successful business, tend to her family and stay in such great shape, she decided to teach her blueprint for balance to other women through Superwoman Lifestyle.
