Resources follow resourcefulness

Many entrepreneurs struggle because they focus on their resources. They talk about the things that they like whether it be time, money, knowledge, support, connections or whatever else they feel like they are missing. This focus on what they lack paralyzes them. If you look at successful entrepreneurs very rarely do they spend much time thinking about what’s missing. They dedicate their thoughts to what is and what they can do. As I studied more than 400 of the worlds top business leaders another important question that they always asked was not how will I do it, but who will help me. All of the resources that you need exist somewhere and in the hands of someone. The best question to ask when you are lacking something is who can help me that already has this? That question is a demonstration of resourcefulness. Resourcefulness always proceeds resources. Resourcefulness always has solutions. #DouglasVermeeren #Entrepreneur #EntrepreneurOfInfluence #BusinessSkills #BusinessMindset #BusinessTips #EntrepreneurTips #Entrepreneur #Entrepreneur #EntrepreneurLifestyle #Number1BusinessCoach #TopBusinessTrainer #BusinessConsulting #BusinessCoach

7 Laws of Influence – Entrepreneur of Influence, Douglas Vermeeren

The 7 laws of Influence – Entrepreneur of Influence, Douglas Vermeeren

By Douglas Vermeeren

(The following is a brief summary of the 7 laws of Influence as taught in the Entrepreneur of Influence program by Douglas Vermeeren.)

Entrepreneur of Influence

Influence and attention are two of the most prized assets that any company can acquire in todays marketplace. Without these assets companies drift into obscurity and the sea of sameness and as a result are left to fight amongst their competitors in price and marketing battles that can’t be won. 

Influence is not just about the number of likes, shares, subscribers and thumbs up that you can acquire on a post or profile page. Influence is about the ability to become relevant to those that matter to your business.  Influence is about becoming a company that people care about.  The following are a brief overview of the 7 laws and things you can do that will make your more influential in your niche and will help you receive the benefits and opportunities that come with being more influential.

Law 1 – Serve the Specific – Most entrepreneurs make the mistake of trying to serve masses of people and to try please everyone. The best and most influential entrepreneurs know that influence begins with serving a select group at a high level. Focus is an essential element for beginning influence. Influence starts with becoming valuable to a specific group of people. Specialists in all fields are worth more to those they serve. You only become valuable as you go deeper into a specific niche. Cover less ground, but cover the ground you have in a better way. What are you doing to become valuable to a specific group?

Law 2 – Find Relevance – Influence is all about connection.  Connection comes through being of service in a way that matter most to those you serve. Your personal agenda does not matter and your audience can certainly sense when you are self-serving. Authenticity, constant learning and connection to the individual is an essential part of becoming and staying relevant. What are you doing to become more relevant to those you serve?

Law 3 – Accessibility – In todays marketplace those who are involved personally in their brand are the most influential. Are you involved in conversations with those you serve in real time? Do those you serve feel as though they know you and are acknowledged? If you consider the most influential entrepreneurs in todays marketplace their tribe feels as though they have a relationship with that person. What can you do to become more authentically connected to those in your audience?

Law 4 – Speed – We live in a world where people expect to be acknowledged and receive what they want instantly. This concept of speed has not only created a desire to have what we want now, but also an expectation that we can receive it in the way we wish. Speed therefore, is not just about timing, it is about flexibility as well. Entrepreneurs today are expected to be able to support their communities quickly and with flexibility. Influence requires trust. Trust is developed by consistent delivery. And when you deliver faster and more flexibly than others in your niche your influence grows exponentially. How can you be faster and more flexible than others in your niche?

Law 5 – Premium Exchange – We often hear entrepreneurs talking about the importance of creating a fair exchange of value. (More on this another time) I find that most do not understand what that even means. However even if they did, it is not enough. They must create scenarios where prospects and those they serve receive a premium exchange. In fact, the exchange needs to deliver higher value to the others in their niche. When they do it gives their tribe incentive to be more loyal to the brand and help it grow. How can you create more value for your audience than anyone else?

Law 6 – Build Community – A community is a group of people with similar values, beliefs, desires and opinions. When people feel as though they are part of something important they tend to care about it, promote it, support it and even make sacrifices for it. Recently a friend told me about how he woke up early and stood outside in the snow to get tickets for a concert to a favorite band.Your prospects will make the same kind of efforts when they feel this sense of ownership.  When the are truly part of a community they will almost feel a sense of betrayal when they do not support you. In a sense, it is genuinely like belonging to a family. How are you currently building and supporting your community?

Law 7 – Leverage possibilities- There is a reason why this law arrives as the final step in the laws of influence. Leverage is utilizing the support, networks, knowledge, money, time and other resources from other influencers or high level partners. However, if there is one thing that is clear about leverage is that those worth partnering with will not partner with you until you can demonstrate value to them also. To use leverage at high levels you must demonstrate competence at the previous laws of influence. Who can you work with to create power and influence through leverage?

Influence is not something you either have or you don’t. It grows by degrees. As your level of influence rises you will see more opportunities unfold for you. Your profits will rise. Your name and brand recognition will improve. You will be considered an authority or expert in your niche. Your sales will arrive more from inbound inquiries rather than outbound campaigns. 

Get started now to look for ways you can improve your influence today.

Do something NEW! Replace something OLD!

Douglas Vermeeren - Stop old

What are you hanging on to that is keeping you from getting to a new future you’d prefer? You can’t fill the space if there’s something already in place. Take a more careful loo at the thoughts, activities, behaviour and habits that you have allowed to block out the better choices that you really want.

Create more power in your life today!

Douglas Vermeeren Power
I often have my students ask me how they can feel more empowered and inspired everyday. Often it’s not that they are engaged in work or careers they don’t like or enjoy and it’s also not that they don’t enjoy the company of friends, family or coworkers. They claim its a deeper kind of rut they feel like they are in and they just don’t know how to shake the boredom or sense of same. Here’s may answer – we can only experience what we choose to create. And if we want to be more powerful and inspired we need to put more powerful and inspiring things in our lives. Too many people that I have had ask about this issue often live a life in front of the TV, a computer screen on social media or doing the same habitual boring activities every day and in every way and then they wonder why they feel uninspired.
 
Yet my experience both personally and observationally is that we get excited as we do inspiring things, learn powerful ideas and expand and grow! A sense of power and inspiration come from a sense of progress! So today I challenge you to do something inspiring that will add more power to your life. And it doesn’t take a lot of effort of money to escape boredom and find power.
 
Here’s a few examples:
Read a good book
Go to a seminar
Serve a family member
Mentor someone who needs your help
Exercise (and do more than you normally would)
Clean your house (more on why this works later)
Make written plans for your best future
 
Do it right now and don’t wait!
