Saying “no” everyday

For years I struggled with saying “no!” Now I say no at least three times every day. I realized that there is usually an ulterior motive when people ask me to join their organization. I am not interested in titles, if that appealed to me, I would gladly accept all offers to be a director in every organization that makes such a request. I quickly consider the time I will waste attending meetings of this organization, online or in person. I am repulsed when I consider the emails and group chats just to schedule the meeting. I do not care about this. The ulterior motive is that I would serve as the legal consultant in the organization and there would be an expectation that I do free work. I confidently say no to clients who are demanding or who are always in a rush. Saying “no” allows you to have time to do things that matter to you. Only say “yes” if the invitation is in line with your purpose. If you need time to think about the request, be firm and ask for some time to consider the request. Remember that saying yes to one thing means that you are saying no to something else. Saying the word, “no” is extremely helpful as people get the message quickly. Trying to be polite and giving an explanation is overrated. I am not advocating that you be rude, but I want you to be firm. I also respond with “no thank you” and a smile or I say “no please”. I reiterate my response above when I was asked to join the association. Ultimately you are giving away these precious moments of your life to someone else when you agree to do something you have no interest in doing. Be firm but kind and say no.

To do list

✓ Write the things that people often ask you to do and you feel disgusted with yourself for agreeing. ✓ Practice saying no to your friends, children and spouse when they push your boundaries.

What is an online business?

An online business is a business that uses the internet to conduct transactions, connect with its audience and to accept payments. Virtual storefronts can be created to showcase a catalogue of products. Social media is primarily used by online businesses to build and engage with an audience who eventually become paying clients.

Why you should stop telling people your business ideas?

Do you know someone who shared a business idea with a friend and that friend stole the business idea and successfully launched it? You do not need anyone to validate your business idea before you proceed.

When you get your business idea you simply start to put things in place. I know hustlers who shared their business ideas with their loved ones, and they were shut down. Start your business and you will know if the idea is good or bad. People are selfish by nature. They may consider how your life will change when your business succeeds.

Their insecurities may consume them and they may fear that you will meet someone else while running your business. If you must tell someone about your business idea, make sure that you tell someone who loves you and has supported you in the past.You can share your idea with a positive person who you has earned your trust. This person can encourage you and remind you of your past successes. A positive person may introduce you to the right people to help you to get started. If you do not have any positive friends, then you need new friends. Summary You do not need anyone to approve of your idea.

 After you get your business idea start to put things in place.

To do list •

Make a list of the positive people that you can share your business idea with.

How to ask your clients for your payment?

I saw my colleague recently and she looked distressed. I recalled that she accepted a position at a small law firm and her salary was not more than $7,000 so I suspected that this was frustrating her.

I asked her why she did not consider starting  her own law practice. She replied that she thought about it but she was uncomfortable asking for her payment.

I once heard that “begging” is asking in a pathetic manner.

But it is still asking.

I am of the view that you can confidently ask for your full payment from the start.

A few tips

Know your worth.

 Take a good look at yourself and realize that you are a professional.

 You must first be convinced that you deserve your full payment.

When you value yourself and respect your time and work, new clients have no choice but to make your full payment.

Let your clients know that you can start working on their project as soon as you receive payment:

I can start working on your documents as soon as you make full payment.

 I await full payment.

I will send your receipt as soon as you make the full payment.

Refund or Reputation?

There was an incident in Trinidad in December 2019 involving a cake that was delivered by a cake baker that was not well received by the customer.

 I am of the view that in a case like this a full refund must be offered right away. Social media may be used by dissatisfied customers to post pictures of items received from an online business owner or of screenshots from conversations. There are legal options to seek redress but the immediate aftermath is embarrassment, less clients, reputational damage and hurt feelings.

Always be able to give a full refund.

 A refund will not stop your customer from being disappointed with your service or product but a customer is less likely to rant on social media about an online business after they received a refund. It is my desire that you only accept projects that you can complete and that you accept clients that you love to work with.

I take written instructions from my clients and I read it over to them to ensure that we are both on the same page. I do not accept every client that approaches me because I am not always able to give their matter my full attention and they deserve my undivided attention.

May you always select clients who love your work and support your purpose.

To do List •

 Create a Refund Policy and share it with your customers.

• Decide under what circumstances you are willing to give a full cash refund.

What is a Hustler?

A hustler is an ambitious person who works smart to create the life that they want without regard to the circumstances.”-Antoinette Sydney

 Traditionally the word “hustler” has been given a negative connotation. It has been interpreted as being involved in illegal activities such as narcotics or selling happiness. On one platform the hashtag “hustler” was banned. Posts that use this hashtag will be flagged . This is not the interpretation that we will be using because it is disrespectful and far from the truth.

Hustlers never quit, we find innovative ways to take care of ourselves and our families. We use our skills to pay the bills. We are willing to give our customers value in exchange for full payment. A hustler is not to be confused with a “con man” or “smart mam” or “scamp”. The latter must understand that every “six for a nine” that is given to innocent, unsuspecting customers will come back tenfold. You may have a full-time job, or you may be a mother who takes care of her family and you want to start your online business. When is the best time to start an online business?

My answer is now, you are well able to start and succeed in your online business with the help of my book that I wrote just for you.
