Each Monday morning as I drive to the office here in Tallahassee Cheap T-shirts , Florida, I glance at the drivers next to me and try to pick out the ones that
look as if they are about to begin 'a five day sentence' doing something they
hate to do.
It's sad but true. Most people spend their lives bored into a trance while working for someone else. No wonder so many people live for the
weekend and get anxious when Sunday night rolls around.
And I once again thank God that I get to do something I love every day.
Doing what you love
Sure working for yourself has its drawbacks. After all, you have yourself for a boss.
But the worst day I have ever spent in private practice is better than any best day working for someone else.
It takes a lot of work to make a private practice go over the long term. It's been said
that part of being an entrepreneur is quitting a job where you work 8 hours a
day for someone else so you can work 15 hours a day for yourself.
There are long days for sure. But again, the longest day working for yourself doing
what you love can still be better than a day off working for some one else doing
something you dislike.

You've sent in your RSVP, forked out your $35 to $60 Cheap Shirts , put on your favorite suit, grabbed a stack of business cards, and practiced your 30 second commercial in the mirror. You are all set to
head out to meet your dream client over a plate full of chicken with brown sauce
Then you are there, eating your chicken and wouldn't you know, your dream client IS sitting next to you. The next thing you know Cheap Sports Jerseys Free Shipping , you're making the rounds and you've got a pile of cards. You are excited as you mentally count all the dollars you just know will be
filling up your bank account. Unfortunately, the reality is most people will
never do anything with those numbers. The stack of cards ends up living in your
purse, in your car or just sits in a pile on the desk. Can you see the dollars
disappearing from your bank account? Don't leave your money on the table, or
#1 So you've got a stack of cards in your hand, now what?
We all know that when we meet someone Cheap Sports Jerseys China , we're supposed to smile, listen to what they say and then note on the card the date, where we met them and maybe an extra tid bit or two.
But I don't want to talk about what to put on the card. I want to talk about
where you PUT that card.
Ladies, pick a special spot in your purse to keep cards. Maybe that little zipper compartment that no one knows what to do with. Or pick up a little change
purse. Just pick some place specific. Men, create a special spot in your wallet
or pick a pocket. Every time you get a card or phone number Cheap Sports Jerseys , whether you are in the grocery store or out networking, it goes in the "card spot". This starts the process and eliminates, "Now where
did I put that card?" syndrome.
#2 From one place to another
Now I don't know about you, but when I come home from a dinner meeting at 11pm I don't feel like entering contacts into a
database. But you don't want to forget about the cards hanging out in your "card
spot". You also don't want to create a pile of mystery cards.
Find a box or a pretty bowl to keep on your desk. This is your holding spot. Take your cards from your card spot, bundle them together and put them into your
holding spot until you are ready to enter them into your database.
Hint: You can store phone messages Cheap Jerseys China Free Shipping , sticky notes with hand written phone numbers and other notes in your holding spot to make sure those numbers also get into your
#3 Enter into your database
Now if a card is in your holding spot that means it has not been entered into the database. So get typing. Even if there is
a day or two between the actual meeting and you entering the info into your
database, you have just made it really easy for you to find a phone number. If
it's not in your database, it's either in your purse spot or in your holding
spot. How easy is that? No more tearing the office apart. Don't forget to back
up your database. You wouldn't want to loose all that hard work.
#4 Take action
Wait, you're not done yet. Now that the name is in your database, send them an email Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping , invite them to join your ezine list, hand write them a card, call them to set an appointment, mail then a sample. Do something, don't
wait until you see them next time.
Here's the best part Cheap Jerseys From China , now that you have put in all the info in your database and taken action you can throw away the card. No more clutter, yeah!
If you can't bring your self to actually throw the card away, create an entered box and put the card in the entered box.
