The Accountability Minute:Business Acceleration|Productivity

I’m Anne Bachrach and for over 24 years I’ve been best known as The Accountability Coach™. 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 and work less, accountability is 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!

Tip #2 to Communicate Effectively with Prospects and Clients

Updated 3 months ago.

Today we are talking about the 2nd tip to communicate effectively with clients – which is to Be Professional.

Never sacrifice professionalism when communicating with clients. During the first few communications, it’s best to keep it on a professional level. If you cozy up to people too quickly they might take advantage of you by trying to get you to lower your rates or worse, they may think that you’re trying to build an inappropriate relationship. Play it safe and communicate effectively with clients by always maintaining your professionalism. You don’t want to waste their time. When you are respectful of their time and keep to a specific agenda they will appreciate that. If you don’t have to say Blah, Blah, only say Blah. Once you get to know your clients on a more intimate level over time, it’s okay to become a bit friendlier with them.

Action Step
Clients are not friends - at least initially - and rarely become “friends”. Remember, you are a professional being paid to provide results. Treat your clients as you would like to be treated; be punctual, respectful, and courteous. Do not expect respect from your clients immediately, they will return it once you have proven yourself.

Tune in tomorrow for the 3rd tip to communicate effectively with clients.
