Your Dream Will Come True (Get Focused)

Your Dream Will Come True (Get Focused)

On October 1, 2014, my husband and I signed the lease on our Dream Location!

That was an exciting day for the both of us! In fact, that was the day that I realized that I am finally moving in the Direction of my dreams and I could hardly believe that we were sitting at the table with the children of the man who built our new location over 20 years ago.

While we were signing the lease, the Owners of the building revealed to us why they chose us and they said this: “We chose you because we loved the name Learning Days and we also love the fact that your husband (who happens to be a contractor) will help you maintain the building.”

I shared this with you to let you know that, your name speaks volumes about your Business! Also, be sure that you have an assigned maintenance person when negotiating a lease or even buying a building.  Read the entire eNewsletter now!

Tips For Sharing Your Business Card

This blog post was inspired by one of my Facebook friends, Christina Margolis. The day before I published this blog post, I made a bank deposit and as I made the deposit, I decided to share a few of my business cards to the bank teller.

I waited for the teller to greet me after my transaction reached the inside of the bank and he said: “Good evening!  I replied, Hello! (with an exciting tone of voice), Good evening to you as well… then I said,  I own a center not too far from here, if you know someone looking for child care or preschool, please share my card with them. The teller said, Sure! Then I replied, thank you and you have a great day!”

I shared this moment with you, because I want to inspire you to get in the habit of telling others about your Business. In fact, if you are shy, that’s OK….just keep practicing and you will become more comfortable with sharing your Business cards. I’m introverted by nature, however, over the years, I have come out of my shyness and I tell others about my business on a regular basis.

The next time that you are in the grocery store or  out shopping and you see a mom or dad with children,  that’s a great opportunity for you to gain a potential client.

For example: Slowly walk over to the parent, (smile) and say, “Excuse me ma’am or sir , I see that you have some beautiful children and I was wondering if your children are enrolled in childcare or a preschool program?”  If the parent says no, consider Offering  the family a trial day in your program and give the parent  a few  of your business cards. Then say, “It was a pleasure meeting you and I look forward to hearing from you soon!”

If the parent already has childcare, you could simply say: ” I was just wondering if you were in need of childcare, because I own a Child Care Business and if you are ever seeking to make a change in your child care provider, feel free to give me a call (hand the parent your Business card). Thanks for taking the time to speak with me and you have a great day.”

I look forward to reading your comments about today’s blog post. Be sure to leave your comment below.

To your Success!
