It’s a terrible lie that every business owner should be aware of!

There is a giant myth out there circulating through the ether in cyberspace, be careful to pay it no attention when it whispers past you in the breeze.

What is the myth?

The myth is that having a presence in the digital space will have no actual effect on your financial bottom line.

Yawn.

Firstly, it is true that last year the average small business invested between $23-$60K on their website and social media channels and secondly, it also true that Forbes reported that 60% of small businesses saw zero financial return on this investment.

Then why is it a myth?

Because it is the type of presence and what it is you are actually doing in the social space that will dictate whether or not you will experience a positive result with your work here – 40% of business are killing it!

Two Ears & One Mouth? – It turned out my Granddaddy knew a lot about social media.

Written by Geoff Talbot – Co-Founder of Seven Sentences

 

Are you currently going through a lean patch in your business or career?

I’ve heard it said that if you are NOT “selling” it is mostly like because you have ceased sharing your story with other people. In the older world, if you quit knocking on doors then you would stop selling vacuum cleaners.

Have you had any new conversations lately? Remember growth nearly always comes through relationships.

But here is the real kicker, I am not sure that success is simply about sharing your story, I think it is about something else.

Have you truly engaged and listened to somebody else’s story lately — therein lies the secret to great success.

It Is The Brave And Not The Talented Who Succeed

Written By Geoff Talbot – Co-Founder Of The Seven Sentence Blog

 

Talent is overrated, it is the brave and not necessarily the talented who succeed.

You can waste a lot of time wondering “am I good enough?”

It’s the type of question that really isn’t worth asking, instead ask these three questions.

  • Do I truly love this thing that I want to do?
  • Will I chase this dream with all my heart without any guarantee of success?
  • Am I willing to keep going even when it is tough?

Talent is overrated… courage always finds a way.

2014 Copyright Seven Sentences – Why Talent Is Overrated.

You are brilliant and you are unique

Written By Geoff Talbot – Co-Founder Of The Seven Sentence Blog

It is a crime to hide, yet many of us hide all the time.

There are just too many voices in our heads instructing us on how we are supposed to communicate with the world.

The shame of it is, your uniqueness, the thing that makes you different, special and valuable is being shouted into submission by “more of the same.”

Our world doesn’t need more of the same, it desperately needs something different, something it hasn’t seen before… it needs you.

Too many people get into business or pursue a creative career AND simply follow the pathways of others before them.

YOU are missing out… WE are missing out.

You are brilliant, you are unique, no one can do the things that you do in the way that you do them — it is time for us to see you.

The Number #1 Way to Build An Audience For Your Blog

Written By Geoff Talbot – Co-Founder Of The Seven Sentence Blog

 

Doing the work, creating anything, starting a blog… these are relatively easy things to do.

Most people are simply happy doing the easy thing — we’re proud of the fact that we’re actually doing something and so we keep on doing it in the same old predictable way.

Unfortunately there is nothing unique, original or compelling about a person who simply does the work and doing the work does not guarantee you any amount of success.

You could write a blog post everyday from now until Christ comes back and never have substantial readership if all you do is “the work.” (Tweet this)

If you want to succeed at anything then you must do something extra, something other than simply doing the work… you must reveal something of yourself.

Without vulnerability your work will not resonate, and without resonance you cannot hope to connect strongly with others.

Always remember hard work comes from striving, great work comes from giving.

WARNING! Being a “Mommy Blogger” could be killing your career!

Written By Athaliah Renee – Co-Founder Of The Seven Sentence Blog

 

Being a mom is an immensely high calling; being a work at home mom is worthy of a gold medal +.

And many of us moms have taken to the web to share an area of knowledge that we’ve acquired on our journey as a result of being a mom; this is fantastic.

But if you have an online business and you identify yourself primarily as a “Mommy Blogger” hold the phone, I do believe you could stunting your own growth.

For in identifying yourself in such a way, it’s possible that you could be missing out on an entire market of really amazing, lovely people who happen to have no children.

Yes, you are a mother and yes you have a blog, but perhaps in your heart you are also an entrepreneur or a thought leader with even more to offer the world than you first imagined; still unsure?

Here’s an exercise:

I am a mom who often blogs about __________, so actually I am a _________ (entrepreneur/thought-leader) who happens to be a mom, who uses blogging as my medium to share information and insight about __________ which could help all sorts of people on the web!

If you find that this exercise renders you a Mommy Blogger solely, no worries, keep at it BUT if not, it’s high time you start recognizing the value of what you have to offer to many, many more people.
