The Accountability Minute:Business Acceleration|Productivity

I’m Anne Bachrach and for over 26 years I’ve been best known as The Accountability Coach™. Some even have called me The Accountability Pit-Bull™. Did you know that the #1 reason people don’t get what they want is lack of accountability? If you want to make more money, work less, and enjoy even better work life balance, The Accountability Minute is perfect for you. Are you sick and tired of your business just making you sick and tired? You know the drill. You invest a lot of time in building and growing your business. You make many personal sacrifices. You hope that the trade-off is more clients, more revenue, more progress toward your goals, and more prosperity, so you can enjoy the business and life you truly want. Good intentions don’t magically lead to good results. They are a start; however, they are unfortunately not enough. This is just the truth! Poor follow through takes a toll on virtually every aspect of our lives. It not only threatens our health, it also prevents us from achieving personal, financial, and career goals that are well within our reach. When you are held accountable to the activity required to achieve your goals, you will make more money, be able to work less, and enjoy even better work life balance. If this sounds at all like something you want, you are in the right place to accelerate your results!

Step #5 for Inspiring People to Work with You

Updated about 1 month ago.

Today, we are talking about Step #5 of the 5 steps for inspiring prospective clients to work with you, which is to Paint the Bridge.

The final stage to inspiring clients to work with you is to paint the bridge. This is where you connect the dots by reviewing what you’ve discussed thus far.

If you are unclear about any information discussed, this is a good time to ask the prospective clients questions to clarify before you proceed with reviewing. You may also want to invite the prospect to share any last thoughts or ask questions they feel are important for you to know, before you proceed.

The key in Step 5 is to accurately recap:
1) Their current pain,
2) Immediate or future goal(s),
3) Reassure them the goal is possible (if it’s unrealistic, hint at how you can help craft a revised, attainable goal), and finally,
4) How you can effectively support them throughout the process and guide them to achieving their goals.

Demonstrate that you understand, highlight your valuable expertise (and how it makes the process easier!) and instruct them how to sign up. Remember, you are the bridge to help them get from where they are to where they want to be.

Over the past 5 days we have explored 5 steps for inspiring people to work with you. Apply these steps to help you be even more successful, so you can enjoy having your ideal business and ideal life.
