People often ask me, don’t you have to be serious and focused to attract clients to do business with you? Really? Wonder why Dale Carnegie said this: “People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing!”
Can’t you be focused and have fun too? When I mention the word ‘fun” I’ve learned that not everyone thinks of it in the same way! To me being positive, communicating and really listening to people, being energized and wanting to serve first instead of being served demonstrates FUN! Throwing in laughing at yourself and the situations doesn’t hurt either!
Fun can manifest itself in many ways, but the bottom line is wanting others to see you as real, authentic, transparent, and genuinely concerned about them without feeling you are using or want and need something from them! It’s an art and skill that can be learned without giving up who you are.
Today are you having fun at what you do? Are you successful at doing it your way? I challenge you to expand your reach and see how fun needs to be a part of your business model and core values!
Have fun! Sue Falcone
