Taking Small Actions Consistently Raising the Barr Weekly Memo: Issue No. 100

“Everything I know about business development, I learned from Chad…”

Guest Writer: Betsy Jordyn, President, Accelera Consulting Group

This week’s reflection point: It has been five years since I started working with Chad Barr. I met him when I attended Alan Weiss’ Million Dollar Consulting College. When I heard him speak, I knew I had to work with him because as an aspiring entrepreneur, I knew I needed more than a website. I needed a business development strategist that could help me transform my expertise into a thriving consulting practice.

This week Chad is helping me create a series of dynamic videos to help my clients. He shared with me that this week represents his 100th consistent newsletter and I begged if I could ghost write this one for him. So, in honor of Chad’s personal accomplishment, I wanted to share some the great insights that he has offered to me over the years.

  • Websites are out…web presence is in. If you want to establish your credibility as a consultant — you need more than a website, you need a web presence that contains three things: strong strategy, powerful content and a wow design.
  • The best consultants and thought leaders are always creating and publishing new, provocative content.
  • The best question you can use when you ask a client for a testimonial is: “What value or outcome did you receive by virtue of working with me?”
  • The best question you can ask yourself is: “Do you have the courage to do what it takes to be successful?”

What have you learned by virtue of your relationship with Chad? How has he helped you have the courage to have what it takes to be successful?

This week’s tip: Chad’s 100th newsletter reflects the value of taking small actions consistently. Think through what is one small thing that you do to help you grow your business that you can commit to doing regularly.

Raising the Barr is a weekly memo, which is always pithy, powerful and succinct. It focuses on innovative ideas by maximizing your life and business while leveraging strategy, content, technology and the web, to help you transform the success.
