OB 009 How to Become an Obstacle Buster Podcast with Ann Sieg

Host Warren Wandling takes you behind the scenes to get to know a variety of leaders and the keys to their success. Discover how leaders overcome their obstacles in order to achieve success. In this episode, Warren introduces you to Ann Sieg. 

Episode 009 – Ann Sieg 

ann-sieg

The author of some of the most widely read books in the world on how to get new customers and prospects to come to you, Ann Sieg is considered one of the pioneers of attraction marketing.

Since then, she has been able to impact the lives of 10’s of thousands of people, from CEOs to beginning entrepreneurs, through her groundbreaking coaching and training programs. Her reports have been read by over 400,000 people worldwide and she has helped many people achieve 6 and even 7 figure incomes – many of them through her free training alone.

After training thousands of entrepreneurs and direct sales reps how to build their own online sales funnels and info product businesses, Ann has since redirected her focus into the e-commerce retail space.

While having helped thousands of people become top sales producers in their companies, nothing has matched the rapid success her e-commerce students have reached. It is not at all uncommon for her students to cash flow their businesses in the first few days or weeks of starting their business.

Since this time Ann has developed multiple training courses, memberships and workshops to help meet her student’s needs at every level possible. Ann and her team deliver dozens of live, hands-on workshops every year across the country, as well as trips to China and the Canton Fair – the largest tradeshow in the world.

But what makes Ann’s community especially unique is the huge emphasis on a help-and-be- helped community that includes many private Facebook group support pages, high level accountability and tracking systems to gauge business activities and results, and a strong emphasis on leadership development that has groomed up a highly skilled team of consultants, coaches and trainers.

Ann’s vision is to help 1000 people generate $10,000 a month in revenue.  This is now entirely doable due to the rapidly growing e-commerce space combined with a powerful training system and community.  Members who never made a dime online now routinely hit the 100K mark in e-commerce sales.

In this episode with Ann Sieg, you will:

  • Understand the greatest obstacle her clients encounter
  • Identify the primary factors that contributed to her success.
  • Receive advice to successfully launch your business
  • Discover why mindset is so important for being a business owner

The Case of the Paper Calendar: Stephen Covey had It Right

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Case of the Paper Calendar

Stephen Covey had It Right!

Did you jump into the digital calendar revolution?  I did.  I wanted it to work.  Really, I did.  After trying multiple online tools and calendars, I am back to paper.  Because a calendar is more than an appointment scheduling tool.  It’s your future, the plan, the daily do’s to hit the daily, weekly, monthly successes.

Why I am back to paper? It is my processor, goal tender and mini success journal.  Stephen Covey had it right when he developed a system of planning your calendar in conjunction with developing goals, professional and personal.

So why is the paper calendar so important in our digital age?  One word.  Writing.  According to research by Timothy Huneycutt of the National Math and Science Initiative, “People who wrote down their goals were 33% more likely to achieve them, versus those who just formulated goals.”

 

To get started, take a list of action items which support your goals and write them in your calendar as a “To Do List”.  By doing this, you will be focused on accomplishing your goals, step by step, on a daily basis.  Now your calendar and goals have merged into meaningful activities.  No more wondering what to do each day, hoping to accomplish your goals.  You are intentionally focusing on what is important to you…and hitting the mark!

 

Looking for a great calendar?  They are difficult to find! This year I am using the Passion Planner, a tool to prioritize daily action steps and accomplish great goals.

Now do it!

Write down your goals, visualize the success, and add the steps to your calendar and “To Do List”.

 

To your success,

Personal Development for the New Year

 

 

 

It’s All About You

Personal Development for the New Year

It all began with Zig Ziglar at the See You at the Top Conference, circa 1978. My dad invited me to attend the conference as a sophomore in High School.  My first dose of personal development.  Zig’s energy and story of priming the pump (priming the pump is equivalent to growing – reading books, listening to tapes).  I realized then, to reach my full potential, it was important to take time and focus on my own personal growth.

Consider the following areas to begin your personal development plan: Leadership, Sales Skills, Communication and Professional Networking.  Once an area has been identified, select tools that will help you with your personal development plan.

 

  • Create a Booklist, based on leadership skills, that you wish to read in 2016. The Maxwell Daily Reader:  365 Days of Insight to Develop the Leader Within You and Influence Those Around You, by John C. Maxwell is an excellent choice to launch the new year.   Maxwell helps start each day with a nugget of truth. Identify other authors that interest you such as Brian Tracy, Seth Godin and Chris Widener, just a few of my favorites.
  • Listen to Podcasts.  Grab your smartphone and download itunes  (iPhone) or Stitcher (android).  Search for the skills you desire to grow. Leadership skills are available on the podcasts.   Andy Stanley, a leading trainer, shares an engaging podcast, Leadership.  Podcasts are a great avenue to listen to favorite authors.
  • Begin a Journal.  Jim Rohn says, “A life worth living is a life worth recording.” Set a goal to enter quick notes into your journal on a daily basis. Journaling is a powerful tool to capture wins and challenges. Spend time at the end of each week reviewing and reflecting on your insights.

While journaling on my first speaking tour, I wrote the details of each seminar. Due to high attendance, I was struggling to interact with each participant.  By jotting down daily notes (rearranged tables, walking down the aisles)  and reflecting on the possibilities, I made a huge discovery.  It was the realization that I needed to learn how to move throughout the conference room to make a personal connection (not move the tables!) This reflection process changed my whole approach, allowing me to have a high level of engagement with the audience.
Get started on your journal today, it will make a difference.

Each journey begins with a single step.  With these simple ideas, your personal development plan for the new year is off and running.  As you implement these ideas, be sure to share your progress with me via email or Facebook

To your success,

Warren Wandling
