Question: What keeps you from being amazing?
* Thanks to Erin Shaw for sharing this artwork with me.
Several years ago I attended a training conference where an expert shared a marketing strategy he called ABM… Always Be Marketing. If you are an entrepreneur or in sales, you know the importance of having a good marketing mix. You probably even realize that ABM is an important marketing concept and likely a key to success for your business. However, when you first hear ABM, does it make you ask the question: what is marketing in the first place?
How do you answer the question what is marketing? To me, the definition of marketing is not primarily selling. The definition of marketing is serving and sharing first, selling second. Therefore, ABM is a good marketing approach IF it focuses on serving and sharing first, selling second. And notice…this IF is big and bold!
I’m a motivational speaker. There, I said it!
Truthfully, I’m not too keen of the phrase “motivational speaker.” The image of Matt Foley, the character Chris Farley played on SNL, flashes before my eyes every time I hear “motivational speaker.” That’s why if you ask about the speaking I do, you probably won’t hear “motivational speaker” emerge from my lips. You might hear “keynote speaker,” “professional speaker,” or even “missional speaker.” “Motivational speaker”…not likely.
But today I’m admitting to being a motivational speaker. What’s more, I’m asking for your help.
