Recently, the founder of another leads group invited me to one of his meetings. I was happy to accept his invitation and it seems he has a thriving leads group. One thing I realized is that I really do despise the “eating meeting” leads groups. I know that is a very strong word, but it is how I feel about it. Other people might feel the opposite, and that’s ok. Not everyone hates the “eating meetings”. Why would someone possibly hate an "Eating meeting"?

You may have the privilege of selling a great product or service. Your company might even have competitive pricing. Your company has great introductory offers and promotions to capture new customers. In fact, you have your USP crafted perfectly to tell people how what you are selling is different and better than your competition. But, there is something very important missing. Read More...

I started SHE Leads Group, because of how little respect I received in other leads groups. This is not a woe is me blog, rather a story of something amazing that happened. I am actually fine with the people who were disrespectful of my role as mom and professional business owner.

Yet another leads group is starting up in Denver. So what makes SHE Leads Group so different? SHE Leads Group focuses on helping moms in business, or moms in business development career roles. You need not be a mom to be in SHE Leads Group, you just have to appreciate moms. I am a mom of a 13 year old son.

My story begins with years of involvement in different leads groups - from the large corporate owned leads groups, to little independent leads groups. I am a connector, so providing quality leads has never been a challenge for me. In fact in many of the leads groups I was a member, I was one of the top lead passers of quality leads. That brings me to the first difference. Read More...

What are your first impressions saying about your business?

First impressions have a major impact on how one’s professionalism, quality of work and customer service are viewed by others. Most of the time when we worry about our first impressions, we are thinking about our external customer or client. SHE Leads Group Members should think of what impact it also has on each other – being potential referral partners to one another.

So many times, I hear business owners and employees say they have great customer service. Some companies even have taglines such as, "#1 in customer service." "Best Customer Service." and so on. If you are claiming this in a tagline or even if you don't have this in your tagline, but think this about yourself and/or your company, take this test!
