WARRIOR of Reciprocity

Like my TEDx talk, Validation Paradox: Finding Your Best Through Others, in this episode I clarify how working with your ideal customers also brings out your best. By surrounding yourself with people who can see more in you than you can see in yourself, you will rise to unimaginable heights.

One of the more important topics in my book, LINGO, is about customer experience (Chapter 9). It’s very important we think about customer service different than we used to. Simply put, we should consider not giving the experience we want our customers to have, but instead, pay more attention to the experience they WANT. Have a listen and get the latest insights about how to be sure your customers have an awesome customer experience.

By traditional definition, lingo means to speak the jargon of a group or individual. It’s important as we continue to discuss lingo and the lessons taught in my book, LINGO, that you understand how I define it. I define lingo as understanding someone’s essence. Ironically, to speak someone’s lingo is more about the unspoken word. It’s creating the energetic connection that you get each other and are speaking the same language. Yes, the words and jargon are important. But only after you “get” them.

When you think about your business as building a community and not just a business, it ups the game about how you think about the people who are going to provide for your business and your life. You will treat them as you would treat your friends and peers; as if you were going to meet each person face to face and make it a personal experience. I also provide some tips on how this can affect your email practices and how to create brand bonding.

I wrote LINGO to teach the 5-Step Secret Language Strategy to attract your ideal customers. What I realized afterward are all the other ways knowing your ideal customer’s secret language can affect your business in a positive way. For example, in this episode, I talk about how this in-depth understanding of your ideal customer can help you determine what services best serve them. That “speak” to them.

WARRIOR of Reciprocity

This will probably be a pretty good debate between the law of attraction and taking action. While I look at both sides, in the end, you’ll come to understand that it’s a blend of both. But I do take a side. You’ll have to listen to know how I chose and why. I also brought in a clip from my interview with Bob Proctor from two years ago. Bob was featured in the movie The Secret. You might be as surprised at what he had to say as I was.

WARRIOR of Reciprocity

I explain why the phrase “business with a soul” is in the intro of every Creative Warriors episode and why it’s time has come. It’s about more than having integrity in business. I think that’s a given with heart-centered and purpose-driven entrepreneurs. It’s about unifying the effort we apply with what’s going on inside to get the results we want. I think you’ll gain a lot out of this episode and see how this principle was the entire foundation for my book, LINGO, releasing tomorrow, January 30th, 2018. Go Warriors!

One of the concepts in my book LINGO that I am most excited to get out there and unleash Warriors from the restraints of out-dated business ideas is The New Niche. The old niche was restrictive–forcing creative people to limit themselves by choosing one thing to do and one audience to serve. The New Niche is expansive. Find out what it is and how to serve multiple audiences.

While you’re still in planning mode for 2018, I wanted to offer you something to think about–The Planning Paradox. The paradox is that if you plan too far ahead or too much, you might miss opportunities unfolding right in front of you. But if you don’t have a plan you might run amuck. What’s a Warrior to do? Listen in and find out.
