Statistically, speaking, I have found people res pond better to information sharing than they do to blatant advertising, which is why article marketing is one of the best marketing strategies online.  When people value what you say they will find value in what you sell.  Do you need more people to find value in what you do?  Submit your article to kbooker533@gmail.com and put ADVERTORIAL in the subject line.

Creating a Personal Strategic Plan

June 2, 2014

Success is not an accident. It begins with a well-conceived plan.  You can and will achieve more in the next year than you have in the past  with a disciplined Personal Strategic Plan.

Personal strategic planning is a disciplined thought process, which produces fundamental decisions and actions that shape and guide who you are, where you are going, what you do, and how, when and why you do it.  All of this is done with a focus on the future.

The purpose of personal strategic planning is to help you:

*  Provide direction, meaning, and purpose for your life.

*  Make decisions that positively affect your future.

*  Focus your energies on what’s most important.

*  Achieve the greatest results in the shortest period of time.

*  Significantly increase your level of performance.

*  Enjoy more time, money, balance and freedom.

*  Eliminate uncertainty, anxiety, doubt and fear.

*  Leverage your skills more effectively.

*  Enhance your quality of life, and overall peace of mind.

*  Be more, do more and ultimately to have more from life.

Personal strategic planning is based on the premise that life will not go according to plan, if you do not have a plan.

A successful plan must include the following:

1. Personal Philosophy:  Every person has a personal philosophy consisting of some rules adopted from one’s parents, culture, religion, acquaintance and so on.  Generally speaking, these rules, as a body are not well thought out and contain a wealth of inconsistencies and contradictions.

2.  Legacy Statement:  Your legacy serves as your life’s defining statement.  It serves

a two-fold purpose.  First It provides an overarching framework for all missions

statements and goals to follow.  Second,  it answers the question, “What do I want

to be remembered for?”

3.  Mission Statement A mission statement is a declaration of who you are, why yo exist, and what you intend to accomplish.  In business, the organizational mission answers the big question:  “What is our business?” In personal planning, the question is “What is my life’s business?” In both cases, the answer must define the reason for being.

4.  Core Values: Our values act as our compass, guiding us through life’s terrain.  One certain way of knowing that you are living in accordance with your values is by defining guidelines and measurements for value centered living.

5.  Code of Ethics Words quietly influence our attitudes and opinions.  Codes of Conduct, personal creeds, and pledges all reflect an effort to make sense of things, to organize behavior, and to better understand ourselves

6.  Lifetime Objectives: Your objectives should be written within the framework of your Legacy & Mission Statements.  The key to any Personal Strategic Plan is to visualize your desired outcomes in advance. Be sure to write and rewrite your Lifetime Objectives as affirmations of the future you are working to realize.

7.  Goals: The key in writing your goals is to make them measurable, specific, and time bound.  Goals need to be written for each of the ten critical areas of life which include:  Personal Health, Recreation, Family, Friends, Community, Career, Financial, Household, and  Spiritual.

8.  Personal Board of Directors: A personal board will accelerate your progress by providing both wisdom and support for the attainment of a specific purpose.

The Power of Goal Setting

May 19, 2014

A wise philosopher once said: “success is goals and all else is commentary.” Indeed, success in any area of your life begins with a clear-cut goal. Your ability to set and achieve goals will provide you with a sense of direction, and help you realize your dream. Below is a ten-step formula for achieving your set goals.

1. Decide What You Want:  Decide exactly what you want in each area of your life. This is a very critical step in getting yourself started to achieving success in life. According to Ben Stein, an American law professor, “The indispensable first step to getting the things you want out of life is this: decide what you want.” Remember, no one will make this decision for you. Therefore, you should internally reconcile with yourself on what you want to achieve, and resolve to stick to it.

2. Pen Down Your Goals:  It is not enough to have a mental picture of what you want to do. Write down your goals on paper. The Bible says “write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that reads it.” Putting down your goals on paper enables you to have a broader view of all you want to achieve.

3. Set Deadlines:  Set a deadline for achieving your goal. Setting targets enables you to be on your toes to insure your goals are accomplished. It also helps you to monitor your progress and evaluate yourself for peak performance in achieving success. There is no room for complacency or procrastination when you have a set deadline for achieving your goals, unless you are not serious in achieving success.

4. Spot The Major Obstacles: Identify the major obstacles that can hold you back, and learn how to overcome them. This will enable you to be proactive rather than reactive. Being proactive, helps fortify you to face the challenges ahead. Never allow your mistakes and failures to rob you of your strength. Make failure your teacher, not your undertaker. Do not dwell in your mistakes or short-comings. See beyond your errors, and move forward. Build on your strength, not on your weakness. Let every failure and defeat you face become a ladder to reach the top. Les Brown, a notable motivational speaker, said, “Anytime you suffer a setback or disappointment, put your head down and plow ahead.”

5. Information Gathering:  Secure all relevant information needed in achieving your set goal.  “Every vision is at the mercy of information”, said David Oyedepo. Information is the vehicle with which you drive your vision that ultimately unleashes your potential.

6. Seek Support And Assistance: No man is an island, and neither can a tree make a forest. Seek out mentors who will help you nurture your potential in living it to the fullest. You cannot do it alone.  When someone is wrapped up in himself, he makes a pretty small package.  If you have a vision in which only you can handle, then it must be a pretty small vision.  A great vision surpasses the visionary, and can only be attained through the support of others.

7. Plan, Plan, and Plan: There is a popular saying that goes: “if you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” If you don’t know where you are going, how will you know how to get there? The future doesn’t get better by HOPE even though it is important. The future gets better by PLANNING. Effective personal planning will help you to define and explore your goals and map out ways to turn them into reality. This is what keeps your hope alive.

8. Take Action on Your Plan: Your vision awaits your action. There is no delay on this stage. Taking action on your mapped out plans is a great mark on your self-leadership. A plan remains a plan until executed.  Life is a daring adventure, and it takes daring motivated people to move out and achieve great success.  The distance of the road to success becomes shorter as soon as you take the first step.  Take action now!

9. Envision Your Goals As A Reality: Your vision is your future.  It is your crystal clear mental picture of the future. Visualize vividly your goals as a reality. While taking action is the ultimate expression of self-leadership, visualizing the future we want to have–whether that is a matter of responding differently in your current circumstances or changing the circumstances themselves, is key for increasing our motivation for action. See yourself getting there!

10. Never Give Up: “What happens when you feel completely lost and dejected? Most of us turn around and retreat from our path. No matter what, don’t quit. Be strong, courageous, and determine to pursue your dreams to the end. History is never made by quitters, but victors who never give up. Let nothing stop you from achieving success.

Trademarks are Essential for Your Business

May 12, 2014

Establishing a strong brand is important to business success and a trademark can become one of your company’s most valuable assets.

If your company, however, has not taken the steps to ensure that its name and any other trademarks are available for use, it may be forced to stop using a mark or worse yet, change its name. This could be devastating to business, especially after much time and equity has been put into building a brand.

Additionally, once it is determined that these names and/or marks are available, protecting the brand is of equal importance. Many small businesses overlook these important steps in creating and securing their brand.
Your brand is your identity and an important part of your marketing strategy. Having a federally registered trademark increases your credibility in your market, and enables you to prevent others from using your mark or a mark similar to yours in a manner that could harm your business.

Some Benefits of Trademark Registration are:

• Federally registered trademarks are protected throughout the United States rather than in one state.

• Federal registration provides evidence that you own your trademark. If you ever sue someone for trademark infringement, this fact will save you a great deal of time and legal fees.

• As an owner of a federally registered trademark, you are entitled to “treble damages”, which means you can recover three times your actual damages from the trademark infringer.

• You may also be able to recover any profits that the defendant earned while infringing your trademark, as well as any attorneys fees you incur during litigation.

************************
The process of trademark and design registration doesn’t need to be expensive or confusing. Attorney Karmen A. Booker of Compu-Perfect Professional Services can complete the registration application on your behalf.  CALL Attorney Booker at  (301) 408-1082.
