Attract the Right Job or Clientele:

By December, we eagerly look forward to celebrating the end of one year and are mentally onto the next. Resolutions are made, and we are excited about executing a new plan. But what sometimes unfolds reveals a brand new story.

My Story

Ideas continually come to me, and I relentlessly pursue those of more significant interest. But when technical mishaps interfere, I find myself in need of an emergency brake.

Beginning January 29, you will find new entries for the Smooth Sale Blog on my LinkedIn Profile Page (Elinor Stutz) and Twitter (@smoothsale). It is with great appreciation that so many readers subscribed over the years. My goal in writing is to motivate and inspire readers toward achieving their vision.

I am now in the process of minimizing my website. Instead of typically focusing on what excites me, technical issues were the first order of business for the new year. Securing help was essential.

As simple as an idea appears to be, I was in need of representatives from three different companies helping. The lost time was painful, mainly when put on hold. Thankfully, a reliable go-to person will ensure all is in good order.

My goal always is to eliminate the stress of my not understanding technical jargon.

Three factors can quickly kill progress:

  1. Not admitting what you do not know or cannot handle
  2. Doing nothing instead of asking for help
  3. Lack of time efficiency

When we face difficulties with transitioning, we often think it would be so much easier if we were to quit. But the reason complication gets in the way is that continuing is what we are after.

Facing facts becomes our motivating force for getting help and moving forward. Remaining steadfast, through the process, allows us to see the end in sight. Finally, we can continue with the elements of the business that interest us the most.

Those who choose to quit will never know what might have been. And people who say ‘tomorrow’ will, at best case, lose days or weeks. The better decision is to stop for a moment in time to repair what isn’t working and then move forward with confidence.

Each January, review all processes in place. Recognize where fixes are in need of immediate attention. Once everything is good to go, we can return to our yearly goals and beyond for achieving our heart’s desire.
