Youll See It When You Believe It - Growing Your Business from the Inside Out
What unspoken message are you sending your clients and customers? Is your personal energy field projecting positive, high vibrational energy or just the opposite? The latter will cost you business--and worse, you won't even realize it. The energy I'm talking about here has been called many things, "being in flow," "in the zone," "locked on", "jazzed", "sending out good vibes," (that last one is for anyone old enough to remember the 60's).
Have you ever gone to a business networking event or function and noticed that there are always a few people that everyone flocks towards? If that's not you, maybe you need to do some work to align your energy. You see, other people are attracted to that energy, whether or not they even know it.
I'm sure you've been in this situation. Days when everything just clicks for you: you found a parking space right in front of where you were going, your presentation to a new client was terrific and the client could not wait to give you their business. Everything was perfect and you were unstoppable. You were in that high vibrational state and "in sync" with the universe.
Conversely, has this ever happened to you? You walked into a store, and a very grumpy looking person who was clearly not "in sync" asked you what you wanted. Your first reaction was to get out of there as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, too many people get in this space and wonder why people are not buying from them. I'm sure you've had those days too. I know I have.
There are some simple energy techniques that you can use to put yourself in this higher energy, good vibration state. A place where things will happen and you will begin to attract what you desire. You can avoid those lower states that will push business and people away from you.
Pre-pave Your Day
Each day before you begin any work, devote some time to seeing your day as you want it to occur--visually, orally or better yet, in writing. Describe how you want to feel throughout your day. I'm not suggesting you try to visualize every detail of what will happen, but rather how you want to feel. As an alternative, project yourself, in your mind, to the end of your day. Looking back now, see your day as you would have liked it to occur. Bask in the wonderful feelings associated with your perfect day. Talk about what a wonderful day it was and how everything just flowed and how everything was so terrific as you went about doing what you do.
Do this simple exercise for only takes five or ten minutes, but do it each day. This will align your energy and put you in a positive state to begin your day. After you practice this for a while, you'll begin to notice small shifts occurring in your life. You will begin to experience synchronicities, coincidences, and sparks of inspiration. You will have an idea to call someone, or someone will call you, or you will meet the person who will help you do something that you've been wanting to do. Try this for yourself and watch what happens.

Bogus Investor and Consumer Complaints and Consumer Misrepresentation
Like most regulatory bodies in the United States, the Federal Trade Commission gets investor and consumer complaints. But how much of these are actually real? These agencies then act on such complaints and increase regulations. Let's look at the Franchising industry for example. The complaints of fraud are non-existent for the most part in franchising, yet the FTC franchise group is dead set on making more regulations which in turn stifle the industry.

Competition in the Market Place and Over Disclosure Regulatory Burden
The Federal Trade Commission is assisting competitor to cheat and encouraging this unethical behavior thru their disclosure rule on franchisors. Competition in the market place is far more competitive and the stakes are high enough that Over Disclosure Regulatory Rules cause competition to take the advantage and cheat. And before you say I am off base on these comments, let me tell you that 20% of every single inquiry to buy our franchise comes from a competitor. That's right 20%.

SBIR - A Nice Add-on Business
If you are a small business and qualify to participate in the SBIR program, it is a natural enhancer to your existing business. If you are small enough you may be able to start a company using SBIR funding, but you will soon come to realize that if your sources of income are not diversified (with SBIR being only one source) you might fall victim to funding cycles and no income. Although the Government provides funding to spawn technology its dual mission is to help that technology grow into viable commercial technology. If you can not bring your SBIR funding to fruition via commercialization, then you may find yourself receiving less and less funding as the years unfold.
Slip And Fall Professionals; Service Businesses
Since you own a business you probably have liability insurance to help you against a scam of slip and fallers. Some entrepreneurs call them slip and fall professionals. The scout out the area, bring friends as witnesses trip and fall and then file a lawsuit, go to their chiropractor who is best friends with a lawyer and soak you or your insurance company out of tens of thousands of dollars. If you own a service company and you work on site, do not think for one minute you are safe from these insurance scams. In a service company you will have completed operations, Slip & Fall insurance and a large amount of liability insurance, you may find a rare person who thinks they can target you for a lawsuit.
