8 keys to success in business—and in life!

Start the day early. Get things done without interruption. Respond to emails. Do your to-do list, beginning with what you need to accomplish the first two or three hours of the day. Throw in some exercise.

Time block the day. Set aside time for research, contacting clients and prospects, cold calling for new leads, meetings and administrative tasks. Block a half hour each morning for emails, a half hour each afternoon for social media. Use time in the car for some (hands-free!) phone calls.

But keep the schedule flexible. Stay accessible.

Build relationships. Know your clients’ needs and dreams. Communicate constantly. Become their friend. Remember birthdays and anniversaries. Stay in touch after the job’s done.

Pick up the phone. Nothing beats real physical connection. Let people hear the sound of your voice.

Work with the best. Only use outside resources who are the best in their fields.

Stay healthy. Eat well, get some exercise and the sleep you need.

Unwind with your family. Don’t bring work home. Take regular family vacations

Here’s to your continued success—and your best year ever!… Enjoy a great month!
