Can success be as simple as ice cream in a hat?
This was one of the best days ever…which would have been even better if the Mets had won the game.
Game Four of the 2015 World Series. The major part of my 50th Birthday present from my wife. Two tickets to Game Four.
There really wasn’t any serious thought about who would be going with me.
Had to be that girl right there.
Jillian and I have been baseball pals ever since I coached her nine year old softball team. We still go to games once in a while, even though we’re several hours from Citi Field. (Closer to Yankee Stadium, but ya know…that’s the Yankees!)
She’s interested in the games, and she loves a bunch of the players.
But what she really loves is, you guessed it…
Ice Cream In A Hat.
I really don’t know how she got fascinated with the idea of it. Probably just the novelty of it.
But it’s a thing we do together…one of many.
And it obviously means a lot to her. Just like little things mean a lot to me.
And just like little things mean a lot to you.
And if you’re in any kind of business or sales, just like little things mean a lot to your prospects.
Right this minute, people are banging out sales copy that promises home business success, a certain income level a month, leads, followers, etc.
That’s all well and good. There are lots of people who are looking for those very things.
But there are very few people who are asking people what they want.
And there are even fewer who are listening to the answers.
No, I don’t think home business is supposed to be a social welfare program. It’s supposed to be about creating income…either to supplement an already existing paycheck, or break free from the need for a job…or anything in between.
But I do think that when we ask the right questions, when we find out what’s important to people, they start to gain trust.
We figure out what their “ice cream in a hat” is. Their definition of success.
And give them a path to work for it.
Be that kind of home business builder, and leader.
What is your “ice cream in a hat?”
