Quote of the Week

Quote of the Week:  "'Tis the season to be jolly."
- From the song, "Deck the Halls"


Question:  Are you finding yourself jolly this holiday season? Or are you already being swept away in the hustle and bustle of shopping, parties and obligations? What could you say "No" to that would give you freedom to be more jolly?


Affirmation:  "I truly enjoy the holidays as I do only those things that are most important to me--and say No (thank you) to the rest."

 Ask Coach Carole

One of the most gratifying parts of writing Monday Morning Coach is hearing from you. Knowing that my writing resonates with you and addressing things that matter most to you is what inspires me to keep writing. One reader recently wrote . . .


Dear Coach Carole,


I have been in outside sales for several years now and I am finding that I have more business than I can handle. I have worked hard to get to where I am, but now it seems like all I do is take care of problems and that it's not much fun anymore.

Bob S.

Dear Bob,

How could it be fun anymore it you are not doing what you do best, and that is to sell. Often, after we have spent much time bringing in the business we find that we have lost our focus--we are so busy bringing in the clients that we have forgotten why we got into sales in the first place.  Finding what motivates you is an important place to start. It is what brings meaning into what you do.

Next you must focus on who your ideal client is. Is she/he a person who values your expertise? Appreciates your efforts? Pays his/her invoice on time? You get the idea; spend some creative time imagining just who that ideal client is. Now take a look at your client base. Is it made up of ideal clients or of the clients from hell. You know who they are; they are the clients who take up all of your time, want the best prices, don't appreciate all that you do for them, and of course, don't pay on time.

You've paid your dues, Bob, now it's time to reap the rewards. You deserve to have a customer base made up of clients who appreciate and value you as a professional. The only way that you have time for these valued clients is to eliminate those who do not fit the profile. I know this sounds unappreciative, but do you remember when you were a rookie sales person and you would do business with just about anyone? Well guess what, there are plenty of new salespeople out there right now who would truly treasure those clients that no longer fit your ideal client profile. By passing them on to the rookies you help them reach their quotas and gain experience, you help the customer get the attention that they want, and you create the space to attract and service the ideal clients that you have earned the right to do business with. Everyone wins.

NEW! Carole's Latest Book Recommendation

Focus on the Good Stuff: The Power of Appreciation (Hardcover)
by Mike Robbins (Author)


Robbins, a motivational speaker and professional coach explores the power of positive thinking and the art of appreciation. Like other self-help titles, such as The Secret, Robbins writes that like attracts like, and to get what we want in life we must focus on what we want (rather than what we don't want). Robbins explains how the simple act of appreciation can change our lives.
