Tips For A More Productive Day

Practice the following techniques to become the master of your own time:

  1. Carry a schedule and record all your thoughts, conversations and activities for a week. This will help you understand how much you can get done during the course of a day and where your precious moments are going. You'll see how much time is actually spent producing results and how much time is wasted on unproductive thoughts, conversations and actions.
  2. Any activity or conversation that's important to your success should have a time assigned to it. To-do lists get longer and longer to the point where they're unworkable. Appointment books work. Schedule appointments with yourself and create time blocks for high-priority thoughts, conversations, and actions. Schedule when they will begin and end. Have the discipline to keep these appointments.
  3. Plan to spend at least 50 percent of your time engaged in the thoughts, activities and conversations that produce most of your results.
  4. Schedule time for interruptions. Plan time to be pulled away from what you're doing. Take, for instance, the concept of having "office hours." Isn't "office hours" another way of saying "planned interruptions?"
  5. Take the first 30 minutes of every day to plan your day. Don't start your day until you complete your time plan. The most important time of your day is the time you schedule to schedule time.
  6. Take five minutes before every call and task to decide what result you want to attain. This will help you know what success looks like before you start. And it will also slow time down. Take five minutes after each call and activity to determine whether your desired result was achieved. If not, what was missing? How do you put what's missing in your next call or activity?
  7. Put up a "Do not disturb" sign when you absolutely have to get work done.
  8. Practice not answering the phone just because it's ringing and e-mails just because they show up. Disconnect instant messaging. Don't instantly give people your attention unless it's absolutely crucial in your business to offer an immediate human response. Instead, schedule a time to answer email and return phone calls.
  9. Block out other distractions like Facebook and other forms of social media unless you use these tools to generate business.
  10. Remember that it's impossible to get everything done. Also remember that odds are good that 20 percent of your thoughts, conversations and activities produce 80 percent of your results.

DOING THE OBVIOUS - LET YOUR CUSTOMERS TALK

This is about DOING THE OBVIOUS. You have so many happy customers that will love to stand in front of a camera and say something nice about you. You deserve it as you earned to  be praised by your best customers. Other potential customers trust what your customers have to say about you times more than what you have to say about yourself.

So, all you need to do is to ask your BEST CUSTOMERS to share their authentic experience about being your BEST CUSTOMER and publish this video on all your social media platforms and on your website, BLOG etc...

Those videos were done with the following equipment:

Camera: Nikon D7000however, you will achieve the same result with the identical Nikon D5100 that costs 40% less...

Lens: Nikon 50mm f/1.8G AF-S NIKKOR Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras

Microphone: Rode VideoMic Pro VMP Shotgun Microphone (mo unted on the camera , see picture on the link 

Tripod: Vista Explorer 60-Inch Lightweight Tripod with Tripod Bag or any similar light weight tripod 

Camera settings: ISO 200 (during the daylight) OR ISO 400 (during the evening or indoors), aperture: f1.8, manual focus, distance between the camera and the speaker - about 1.5 meters. 

 

Here are some testimonials of customers who visited the recent millionaire seminar in JOHANNESBURG

Hands & Feet

Screen shot 2012-07-23 at 12.47.46 PM

Beautiful hands speak volumes, beautiful feet are simply seductive

 Many People neglect their feet although they play a significant role in their lives. In winter we tend to ignore them as they're all covered up and in summer we may think that a dab of trendy nail polish will do the trick. Feet need much more than a coat of bright polish. They along with our hands need constant attention and loads of TLC.

Today I just want to talk a bit about leadership and what it means. And I think that this is one of the most overooked aspects in all business. We sometimes forget that leadship means getting things done through people. It happens when there is an objective to be acheived.

All managers are by definition leaders in that they can only do what they have to do with the support of their team, who must be inspired orpersuaded to follow them. And what I want you to focus and remember this week where ever you are and whatever industry you are in is that, Leadership is required because someone has to point the way and that same person has to ensure that everyone concerned gets there. Organizational effectiveness depends on the quality of leadership.

How to Conduct an Interview

Even though you are a salon and not really in a corprate environment, it does not mean that you should neglect your interviews. The interview MUST be planned to get information from the candidate which will enable his experience, qualifications and personal qualities to be measured agains the requirements set out in the job specification. There is no one best way of doing an interview. Below is a reasanobly typical approach to an interview.
1.  Put the candidate at his ease, he will be nervous and you want him to relax so that he can express himself freely
2. Explain how you are going to handle the interview.
3. Start with a brief description of the job and the company. Do not spend too long over this, especially if the candidate is a marginal one. You can elaborate at the end of the interview.
4. Invite the candidate to describe in his own words his education and career to date. Do not delve too deeply into the istant past - spend most time on the current job. If necessary probe a bit to ensure that te candidte is giving you the full picture. Everyone glosses over any less successful episodes in his career. Find a way to get him to tell you not only what he did but why he did it. This particularly relevant when discussing choice of career and reasons for leaving jobs. It will give you a chance to assess how well he is motivated.
5. Give him the opportunity to talk about his achievements and to explain any setbacks.
6. Allow time at the end of the inteview for him to ask questions.
The information gathering part of the interview should last between 20 to 40 minutes, depending on the level of job.
Always try to get them in for a second interview for a reference point on whether or not he is still what you think he is.
Next week I will talk a bit more about how to Evaluate the Interview to make the best choices out of all the candidates.

Winter Wellness

Screen shot 2012-06-18 at 11.38.00 AM
Relaxing "me" tiem meaning simply pampering yourself is likely to do you a world of good and helps to lift your spirits as you step rather reluctantly into winter. So, visit your local beauty salon/SPA to help ease you into winter.

How to Approuch an Interview

I don't think I have ever met anyone that thinks they are a bad interviewer. Just like everyone believes that they are a good driver, but if it was so we would not have any accident on the road now would we? So to can job failure be attributed to poor selection in the firtst place. Many research has shown that predictions made at interviews often fail because of bias, failure to get the information required, or inability to interpret the information. To avoid these problems you need to adopt a systematic approach. In the beauty industry a lot of salons only ask the therapist to do a short massage as well as a manicure or even a facial, later on ones they are hired and they cannot improve their monthly figures we question why, but has the therapist been interviewed as a sales person as well. Lets face it, most of the profit comes from the sales you do on products, so why is it that no one interviews keeping this in mind? This is why you need to consider the mehtod of interviewing you use, how to conduct the interview and how to evaute the results.

An interview is basically described as a conversation with a purpose. The candidate should be drawn out to talk freely about himself and her career. The interviewer should restrict herself to asking questions and making encouraging grunts. Open ended questions will poduce the most informative answers, "yes or no" questions should be avoided as far as possible. By asking "tell me about your present job" you will get most of what you want to know and gaps can be filled in by asking follow up questions. Avoid leading questions which indicate the answer you are expecting. The interview must also provides the candidate with information about the job and the company so that they can also make a good informed decision without any suprises later on.

Next week I will continue my blog with Conducting the Interview and how to plan.

Fathers Day!

What a special day, I don't know about you but I am definitely a Daddy's Girl and my father has a big influence on my life and also who I became. Thinking from a business perspective this is also one of the biggest celebrated days next to Valentines day and Monthers day, so some thought must definitely be put into it.

Right now at this very second, people are walking around, browsing the internet etc on what to get for their fathers. Will you be the one they find offering them the perfect gift? Make yourself visible so that people don't have to look far before they find you, and with the irresistable offers from Dr Baumann you also have the right product backing you that will be alluring enough for them. 

As promised today I will talk a bit more about what type of Characteristics Organizations should have to be able to be innovating.

1.  A free flow of information which allows executives to find ideas in unexpected places and pushes them to combine fragments of information.

2. Close and frequent contact between departments, and an emphasis on lateral as well as vertical relationships providing resources, information and support.

3. A tradition of working in teams and sharing credits.

4. Serior executives who believe in innovation and will make the neccessary resources available

5. Managers with the ability and desire to seize opportunities and to make time available for innovation.  

I hope all of you celebrate not just on fathers day but the whole week and thank our fantastic fathers for being their for us whenever we need them and for supporting us.

Happy Fathers Day

Innovation - Individual Characteristics

Last week I wrote about what it means to be innovating and what is needed. Today I will look at the individual characteristics of what you need to be innovating.

To be an effective innovator you need:

1.  To know what you want to achieve, don't worry just yet about how to achieve them it will come.

2.  To define clearly the aims and benefits of the project.

3.  To argue the case for the project persuasively.

4.  To get support not only from your boss/investors but also from your staff and colleagues. 

5.  Courage to take calculated risks and not give in when the inevitable setbacks occur.

6.  To be great at getting people into action

7.  Be able to get things done.

8.  The ability to handle opposition or interference on the project.

9.  Be able to maintain momentum and not loose enthusiasm in more tedious work.

All of these aspects are important and if you recognize that you are unable to do some of these things, don't worry you can always hire someone that can cover the ones you can't, if that is not in play learn how to deligate to the correct people.

Next week I will talk a bit about what characteristics organizations need to be innovating.

Innovation

Innovation is the life-blood of an organization. There is nothing so stultifying to a company - or the people in it - as a belief that the old ways must be the best ways. An Organization which tries to stand still will not surive. And this I see everyday in business around me. They work hard to get to a certain point and then theys it back and relax, unfortunetly it does not work that way. 

Innovation requires a blend of creativity, clear thinking and the ability to get things done. It requires thinkers and doers to work closely together. Management or Owners must create a climate in which staff have the scope to develop new ideas and the resources to implement them.

The success of innovative projects, therfore, can be seen to depend on two things:

1. The Characteristics of the individual manager and

2. The Climate of the Business.

Next week I will talk a bit more about innovation and what individual charactaristics is needed to be an effective innovator.
