Is a Promise the same as Terms?

The simplest way to show love, I say is by keeping a promise. It also illustrates respect. Now consider this, is a Promise made between two friends and or lovers any different from “Terms” in a business contract, verbal or writen? Yes or no? Now make sure to consider your answer carefully…

Yes…of course it is! At least I believe it to be one in the same; your “Word is your Bond.” For those of you who answered no; I ask, have we lowered our standards so much in society that we are immune to the constant misrepresentation which occurs professionally as we conduct our daily business affairs. Do we really not notice when we are lied to or a promise is broken in our relationship and when we do notice how do we react? What concequence is there to our lives?

To make  accurate projections in business one must analyze the researched data…but what now when the data analyzed is fraudulent and or quite simply incorrect. It seems we, some of us, understand that, that would then lead to projections which are not based on actual numbers and facts and how would we ever expect these projections then to produce their projected results? We can’t, not reasonably at least.

To make a sound decision whether it be professionaly or personally in one’s life, make sure you have all the information and that it is in fact accurate and hasn’t been altered or manipulated in any way…but how does one do that? We outsource so many of our needs, communicate with less than honest people and are distracted and influenced by a Techonolgy driven culture of “Anti-social-mediaism” We attend events only to post and publicize.. gone are the days of the true concept of socializing, talking and mingling, real in-person and live interaction. We hide behind our Social Media Profiles, yet project our presence and activity.

The key is to know yourself, your likes and dislikes as well as your willingess to strive for that which you wish to acheive, know what you stand for and that foregiveness helps us, not those we are trying to forgive. So with this said, we will never have ALL the information and we will never have it all ACCURATE or without any MANIPULATION of some sort, motive etc. So the absolute MUST is to RE-EVALUATE. Just as in a Court of Law, new eveidence must be submitted and considered so to is it in our lives.

RE-evaluate your needs and how the new terms, or information impacts your original decision, how does it change the result you had hoped for, will it change it? This is the time to move forward and not stay stuck on bitterness, resentment or negitive emotions.

Seek the Solution, which is always linked to your desire for your life. Your Heart Knows Best, let your Head be your Translator and Logistics Manager.

FREE BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT

I have said it before and I will say it again, nothing is FREE!

To explain to a Launch company why they must pay for their Business Development and that it is in fact despite being related to marketing and sales a separate element; is hard. Everyone wants something free these days, something for nothing.

It’s definitely the GLOBAL ECONOMIC CRISIS that has some entrepreneurs and corporations alike forgetting the number one rule, SOMETHING for SOMETHING. LEVERAGE and cross-promotion, cooperation that is what leads to conversion and the ever so desired dollar and sale! Let’s not forget for a minute the target, the client or consumer, they don’t want to be pressured by someone who has very little to no product knowledge. Personality would be nice and maybe some customer relation skills, you really think you will get all this and a happy employee to spread happy word of mouths about your business for nothing or by squeezing two workers out of one by combining job duties and titles to package and better market the oh so undesirable compensation?

WHAT about commission? Business Development and commission, this only works when there is an incentive along with the industry standard 10-15% on sales Agent/rep contracts. Possibly a minimal salary base, a new account sign-up bonus (reasonable amount i.e .5-1% of anticipated account projections) etc. NEVER work for a company that can’t or won’t INVEST in your efforts. Either they are just hoping you will succeed but don’t truly BELIEVE you will and or they are trying to save money where the money needs to be spent and therefore wait five years, if they are still in business I would say still don’t consider it! Know your worth! You would be better off and make more $, producing your own product, than marketing another’s for pennies.

In my personal case, my work history has proven that I do the work of THREE.

I am a TOP performer in Sales. I was NUMBER one in Sales for a GLOBAL LUXURY BRAND, “Christolfe” for the entire WEST COAST of the UNITED STATES 2011/2012. Represented an A-list client base and received gifts and compliements from people you wish I would disclose the names of…

I have a forklift certification from when I managed the entire Shipping, Warehouse, Fulfillment and Quality Control for a company called Co2Uch Inc. dba. SuperCouch for all of NORTH AMERICA, we made dog phones and boxing frog pens and I worked like a slave; for that was the company that sponsored my H1B Visa as a Budget Analyst so that I may be legal to work in USA.

When others tried and failed to contact and make a deal with Pachenga, I did and I did not have an  easy product to sell. A Meet and Greet with Evander Holyfield. The marketing I did for his camp during his “Redemption in America” taught me a lot about the Corrupt world of Boxing and how I wish to have no part in it…

I won’t even begin to go into details of what my position at Astani Enterprises and HPG Management entailed. Okay, I will mention one of the projects: 142 Million USD High-rise Condominiums, Downtown Los Angeles… if you are really GOOGLE: Astani Enterprises, Concerto. It has since been sold and renamed APEX.

Then there is my God-given talent, PUBLIC RELATIONS. Who do you know that can get a meeting with a high-profile individual with-in months of initial attempt? True my smile helps in-person but the fact is I am and will always be a magnet and needless to say that’s a priceless instrument for anyone’s business.

I have learned a lot from working with companies such as:

ART of Man Gallery, The Empress Hotel, Victoria BC

Mauro’s Cafe, Fred Segal on Melrose, Los Angeles CA

deLaCour America, The Montage Hotel, Beverly Hills CA

The Beverly Hills Times, Beverly Hills CA

When I think back to my days as a Receptionist for Jyllands Posten, I feel that I am blessed to have experienced the many departments that build the structure of an organisation,

Also, no secret I have been on a few Networks now, still nothing for me to brag about…yet…

So excuse me if my abilities, work history, professionalism and performance don’t permit me to do Business Development for FREE.

SHOW me the MONEY and I will give you the fruit of my labor; for to harvest you must first sow!

Investment in Business Development:

Qualified candidate + financial incentive (base) + Marketing Budget = Sales

Promote people, produce more, profit more!
