Think Like A Journalist Quote

We all get stuck. We all lose ourselves a little bit in a fantasy or in our jobs and forget how we feel about other things. It’s really important to check yourself, to spend some time alone. –Amanda Seyfried

Bonus quote: “It is no good getting furious if you get stuck. What I do is keep thinking about the problem but work on something else. Sometimes it is years before I see the way forward. In the case of information loss and black holes, it was 29 years.” –Stephen Hawking

How To Get Your Business Unstuck

  1. Are you busy or productive?  Busy = doing
  2. make small decisions not big decisions. See what the results. Then make another. Increases your chance of success.
  3. You get there by zig-zag not straight line.
  4. Double Helix Trap: don’t do marketing only when you need it; this causes sales to stay flat.
  5. Be the expert: be there when people are ready to buy.
  6. Share your expertise in areas where your prospects are.
  7. Define what pain you solve and who you solve that pain for.
  8. Niche down.
