You Attract Who You Are, Not Who You Want

This 2019, I was blessed to receive two recognitions. The first one was a Distinguished Career Award Recognition from the Northern Rizal Yorklin School (December 1, 2019) and Women Super Achiever Award (February 17, 2019) at the 6th World Women Leadership Congress & Award India.

The nomination came from two women whom I least expected to nominate me. I am very thankful to Vhivian Wong Chan and Apple Allison for the kind recognition.

The kind of people we will attract in our lives are highly dependent on how we are changing as individuals.

How we go out of our way to add value to chosen people - most of the time - without asking for anything in return.

Influence must be used responsibly and at times when it is needed the most.

Whenever we use it for self-serving gains, over time, its trust value goes down as well.

This conservative perspective, admittedly, has also limited the relationships I have.

But I am continuously learning and growing. If I really like to build and strengthen the relationship, I will go out of my way to do so.

The 3 Must-Have Before Someone Buys From You

Got featured in Payoneer Philippines - Payong Kaibigan

If you are marketing a new product or service to a prospect who hardly knows you, it is not easy to get a quick buy-in especially if the person has a lot of options.

However, if what you are doing right now is something that you will specialize in over the long term, I believe the following are a must.

#1 Invest in yourself. 

Your clients will need to buy into you as a leader. You need to show that you are passionate about what you do and not just after a quick buck.

Share what you are doing to grow yourself as a specialist, expert, and as a leader, in your field.

Improve yourself as a communicator, speaker, salesperson, leader, and coach. The more equipped you are, the more you will be capable of building your momentum.

#2 Increase your influence. 

Your prospects will need to buy into your vision and what you stand for.

Form win-win partnerships and alliances with people who can help you reach out to a bigger market rather than doing everything on your own.

#3 Build momentum. 

Create competitive products and services that can add value and help your clients realize their targets.

You will need to have a sequence of activities, programs, projects, products, service, events, in the pipeline. Each one will help build momentum to the next one.

When you stop mid-way and try reactivating again, remember that you already lose momentum and need to start over again.

Get a FREE SEO Site Audit Report

With many folks asking for advice on their SEO challenges, I decided to provide a free SEO Audit report that will give a basic overview of your challenges. Just fill in the details here and the report will be sent to you.

I use SEMrush to work on my websites as I just went through the process of enabling SSL and migrating my site to a new web hosting service. It has been a challenge actually since I have the main site and 4 sub-domains. However, with patience, monitoring, and carrying out the fixes, I am sure my site will be ok soon.

The SEMrush service also gives suggestions on what you can improve in the areas of content marketing, advertising, and social media. They also have online learning resources and certification exams that you can use to learn and validate your skills.
