Happy 4th of July to All!

                       Happy Fourth of July!

This past weekend we attended the San Diego Symphony’s “Star Spangled Pops” on the lawn by the bay.  We heard American ballads, watched fireworks and enjoyed the camaraderie of those around us.  When the Symphony played those patriotic songs we all know and love, it brought tears to my eyes. We are so fortunate to live in a country with so many freedoms and rights, we should all be living every day in gratitude and appreciation.

Working with Entrepreneurs and Small Businesses, I am constantly reminded of the importance of freedom.  These hardworking people are willing to dedicate long hours and days so they can have the freedom of Entrepreneurship.   If you have never owned a small business or been involved in an entrepreneurial endeavor, you may not understand.  IMHO, it’s all about Freedom.

When I think about what Freedom means to me, it takes many forms.  

  • As an American, I hold tremendous pride in living in our country.  While the political climate certainly is all about divisiveness, thank goodness entrepreneurship is all about inclusion.
  • Freedom in America also means having basic rights and resources that allow us to be entrepreneurs.
  • It’s being able to make ethical choices in our businesses without the overreaching mandate of a boss, company, government or military.
  • It’s about being able to give back in ways that you may not be able to in Corp. America.  Serving on that Board that holds special meaning to you.  Leaving at 3p and coming back to your office at 6p to then catch up from the rest of the day.  Time is such a precious commodity, having this freedom is priceless.
  • The right to grow your business as high and as far as you desire.  When Leads Club was expanding internationally, it was exciting to see this process first hand.

I normally like to give a tip or challenge, but today I’d like to solely focus on you.

Congratulations for having the courage, commitment and tenacity to own and run your business!!

Remembering you as small businesses are the most ethical and focused on moral obligation.  While there are many ups and downs in having your own business, overall, we have the best jobs in the world.  In addition, for most Leads Club Members I know, they are also providing good in the world.   And we sure cannot get enough of that.

Feel free to share what freedom is to you and how it presents in your business.

Let Freedom Ring!

Warmly,

Lisa

Are You a Pollinator Too?

Today was my monthly visit to our I-15 Power Team Chapter in Carmel Mountain, San Diego.   We were enjoying a typical Friday morning of camaraderie and fun, made even better by their two visitors Mark Matz and Phil Horn, Founders of “Humvees to Honeybees”.

First of all, is that not the coolest name for a business started by two retired Navy Seal Veterans? (Thank you for your service gentlemen)   And to make it even better, their mission is to:  “Keep America Buzzing”.  I just love a good name and Mission statement.  They say what they are and do it in a catchy and humorous way.  Doesn’t it make you want to learn more?                                           

Towards the end of the meeting, we learned that their business is much more than selling honey.  They are passionate about saving the bees.  Here is an excerpt from their website:     Bee Kind.   From military service to beekeeping, we have a strong drive to help people. We’re passionate about saving the honeybees because they help keep our planet healthy. Bees pollinate over 30% of the world’s crops and over 90% of wild plants.

At one point in the discussion, someone referred to me as a Pollinator.  I must say that I’ve never been called that before and I love it!  In simple terms, the definition of pollinating is to share what you have with others and help them grow.  Wow, that’s what we do in Leads Club.

Here are a few of my favorite tips on how to be a Pollinator:

  1. Everywhere you go, keep your ears open for ways you can help others.  Actively listen to those you meet in both your personal and business life.
  2. When someone shares a problem or quandary, think of who you know that can help them. This can include an Associate in a similar situation or field.
  3. Share a personal story of why this person is important to you and in your trusted sphere of influence. Hopefully, a fellow Leads Club Member.
  4.  Ask if you can make an introduction. By asking permission, your referral will be of the best quality and have the optimum opportunity for a connection.
  5. Facilitate the connection happening. This can take many forms.  Maybe the easiest is a simple email introduction copying both parties.  Possibly the best way is to set a time for them to meet together with you.  Of course, this depends on many details lining up, but when you can, it’s optimal.

What other ways can you think of to be a Pollinator?  Please share your thoughts here.

Happy Networking!
