Stress Compromises Your Mental Health and Wellbeing

In this video I talk a about stress, the nature of stress and the implications of stress. So in order to do that, I want to share a metaphor with you. The metaphor is that of a car and a cars dashboard. Most cars whether they’re an automatic or manual drive, they’ll have on the dashboard, what’s called a tachometer . The vehicles tachometer which measures the working speed of an engine, typically in revolutions per minute (RPM’s). Most people who have seen a car’s dash, will recognize that the tachometer goes from one thousand RPM’s all the way up to ten thousand RPM’s depending on the vehicle. You’ll notice that the higher the RMP’s are, you’ll start seeing red lines which typically start at about six thousand RPM’s. It is those red lines that are likened to what I call a stress. So the red lines are kind of a warning sign letting you know that it’s time to shift gears and that you’re pushing the engine to its limits, hence stressing the engine. People who are aware of this, understand that if you’re looking for the best fuel economy, it’s best to keep a light foot on the gas peddle. People realize that when they race around town and they’re red lining the vehicle, that their fuel economy isn’t the best. You don’t get the best gas mileage when you are redlining RPM’s, you end up consuming a tremendous amount of fuel and stressing out your car. Human beings also have a dashboard that measures both fuel efficiency and stress, it’s TPM’s which means thoughts per minute.

Put Relationship First, Results Second

Coach Greg Clowminzer here and in this short video I want to talk about building strong customer client relationships or professional relationships. Watch Now!

People often hire professionals based on referral, reputation, affordability and availability but they stick around because of both the value you provide and the strength of the relationship you create.

Focus on strengthening relationships first, then ask for the business.

If you want your business to grow quicker, put relationships ahead of results.

One of the biggest mistakes professionals make is getting attached or fixated on the results. Thinking about the sale, thinking about billable hours, thinking about the fairness of the exchange of service for the amount they’re getting compensated for. Too often professionals are over focused on the results.

One of the ways that shows up is that when people meet with the business owners, sales rep, professional service providers will come in with a strong pitch and very poor listening.

Many professionals spend an enormous amount of time thinking they are building rapport, when really all they are actually doing is hanging out their comfort zone. It’s often because of a lack of confidence that people hang out but then never ask for the business.

The other place people get into a big trouble is advocating and just talking about their services, how great they are, how great, how much value they have, all the benefits they have. And they’re really not assessing the client situations.

They’re not doing proper intake or gathering enough information to see if they can actually be of service or help someone.

So in this video, I just want to remind you to put relationships first and results.

I worked with a CPA who is seasoned veteran in his business. I’ll never forget when he had this epiphany, the moment when he realized looking back on his career, he was so hell bent on billable hours, growing the business but his approach was very transactional.

When he had a moment of truth, his moment of understanding where he saw the fact that he had it all wrong. That strengthening and developing relationships was the key to client longevity and client retention. So we worked together on the skills and mindset necessary to create long and lasting relationships with clients.

All right, thanks for watching.
