Big effort, small results? Here’s why…

If you’re working too hard these days, you’re not working smart.

Working too much for too little? That could mean you…

+ Waste your time. You’re “busy,” but you’re not profitable.

+ Give away your time. You don’t bill for all of your time, all of the time.

+ Charge too little. You don’t attach enough value to what you do.

+ Look for love in all the wrong places. You work with clients who can’t afford to pay what you need to earn.

+ Don’t know your business. You’re unaware of what brings in the most money.

+ Don’t control your business. You’re more apt to play “Let’s Make a Deal” than say: “This is how I charge.”

+ Don’t delegate. You don’t call on others to do what’s too menial—or too difficult—for you.

+ Don’t “maximize” appointments. You’re sacrificing income by not asking enough upselling questions.

How to work less and earn more this summer is a theme of the May 17 free tele-seminar entitled: “Summer Survival Strategies: 10 Ways to Boost Your Business by September.”

Presenting this program with me will be Gail Doby, the cofounder of Design Success University.
