Get On Track

Get Back On Track and This Time Stay There!

I know how easy it is to get off track, side tracked and every other kind of track there is.

Like losing weight, it’s easy to gain, but hard as the dickens to get it to melt off of your amazing temple, it seems easier to get off track than it is to get on track.

PROMISE YOURSELF, NO MORE PROCRASTINATION

When we’re trying to get on track procrastination seems to come in, hold us hostage and keeping us in bondage.  Our gifts lay dormant collecting cob webs and by the time we decide to dust off those dusty old webs, we’ve lost all motivation.

Listen, we don’t have all the time in the world to get things right.  If you’ve fallen off track now, at this nano second, today it’s time to make a move.  It’s time to take inspired action leaving all fear in your past.

We look up and time has come and gone and we’re still stuck in that same position we were stuck in yesterday, last month or perhaps even last year.

What does it take for us to get back on track traveling through the universe on our own exclusive journeys. Will it take a mind blowing quake to open our eyes and shake the fears out of us? Not necessarily.  You can get back on track and feel the sheer excitement that awaits you on your tailor-made journey.

Here are a few ways to help you get your feet out of the miry clay to fuel your visions, dreams and goals and get you back on track forever. 

  1.  Talk to God
  2. Read His Word (find verses of Scripture that pertain to your current situation/lifestyle)
  3. Access all tools and resources available to you.
  4. Write down exactly what it is that you want to do with your life.
  5. Create and design a plan describing your gifts
  6. In your plan describe how you will use your gifts and talents.
  7. Describe your unique skill set in full detail.
  8. Create a goal board for yourself.
  9. Believe and trust in God.
  10. Believe in yourself.
  11. Do what you were born to do.
  12. If you have done all these things, start over and edit your thoughts and plans and remember to,
  13. GIVE GOD THANKS.

Now, go and get your journal and start planning your life in a way you’ve never planned it before for you are worthy! Doors are waiting to open up to you.

Blessings to you God’s Virtuous Women Entrepreneurs!!!!!!

Customer Service

It’s Always More Than Just Business

Amazing customer service is important to every business. 

God’s Virtuous Women Entrepreneurs, you are superior and well, just simply awesome women who love doing business God’s way! Please, read on.

EXCEPTIONAL CUSTOMER SERVICE

When I had dreams, (at the age of 14) of becoming my own boss my dream, vision and ultimate goal was to offer superior customer service.

Delivering great customer service comes from the heart.  Okay, I understand that you are business owners and you’re probably saying to yourself and asking what does have demonstrating outstanding customer service have to do with the heart.  Everything!  I honestly think that a lot of business lack heart in their daily interactions with customers.  For me, pouring my heart into the products and services that I offer and provide for my customers is extremely important to me because my customers are important to me.  I like to think I know what is life-changing for my clients because I now understand what I once needed in my life; encouragement being one.  I realize the things that have taken me on an empowering life altering journey and I love to give back which for me, is more than just doing business as, well your ordinary everyday business owner.

When you give from the heart you really make a difference in someone else’s life and maybe even in their business. 

As a business owner I’m so sure that you know the importance of exceptional customer service. You give it and you know what it feels like to receive the highest level of quality customer service. You also know the other side of it and so you make it your top priority to give your customers what you feel they deserve which is why your customer retention remains at an all time high. This is also one of the reasons your business and you are able to enjoy great and ongoing success. Remember to have a positive attitude accompanied by a positive and upbeat tone of voice in addition to a great overall attitude!

Delivering exceptional service is who you are and you wouldn’t have it any other way.  It feels good.  It is positive thinking.  Excellent customer service is a business building component every business should incorporate.

Blessings in Business,

Building Business Relationships

TRUST…

IT BUILDS AND BLESSES YOUR BUSINESS

Growing up with a bevy of amazing friends and neighbors, they quickly became my family and those same people are still my friends today. 

Throughout the years and even now as I type this post, there were and still are certain family members I knew I could always trust.

THEY TAUGHT ME WELL…MY PARENTS

One valuable lesson that I learned as a very young child was the one my parents taught me through their actions. Looking back through the journey of my phenomenal childhood was this; God placed my parents right in the center of Oxford Street to be a true and life long blessing to my neighbors and their children.

THIS IS HOW I BUILT MY BUSINESS

My neighbors trusted and loved my parents because of their honesty and sincerity. They trusted my parents wholeheartedly because my mother and father were beacons of light who had an open heart policy that came from the bosom of God our Father. I believe my parents had been conformed to the likeness of Christ long before I was ever even thought of. What a blessing for me. I also believe, because of my parents obedience and servant hood, that God richly blessed our lives beyond measure. That book shall be written. 

And so as I have gotten older I would like to think and know that people trust me and the products and service I offer and provide. I like to think that my products are life-changing, inspiring and uplifting.

I also believe that I give excellent reasons for my customers to trust me. For example, I am the owner of Cyndi’s Light Work Designs. When I started my business and penned my intro page I wrote my message to my audience from my heart and so it is that when people visit my website and read my message they hear a sincere voice behind that message.

Brief and to the point I tried to make my voice clear, my designs heartwarming and life-altering, with some of my masterpieces being accompanied by poems or words.  Many of my designs need no wording at all for the design alone speaks for itself. 

How can you build impacting life long business relationships and trust with your customers or clients. 

  • Be honest
  • Make them your focus by offering a need or a solution to their problem that gets the results they need which is why they came to you in the first place because they trust you!
  • Let them know you care by taking time to listen to and hear their heart. Be patient and be attentive.
  • Follow up with a message of thanksgiving to them and God.

Also, when you implement God’s principles into your business, people will surely see and recognize that there is something so very special about you and your business.  There is a uniqueness that shines and illumines bright and brilliant in you and your business. Don’t ever stop doing what you’re doing. You were created to be a woman of excellence!

Don’t Ever Give Up

Good Evening Entrepreneurs,

It’s been a while since I’ve written a post.  I do apologize. 

I have a lot I want to share and thought I would do it now as I have been in deep thought for some time now. 

I was caregiver to my mother off and on for 16 years.  During the last five and a half years I became her permanent caregiver.  With her being bed-bound I had to bathe and change her diaper three times or more a day.  I like to think that I cared for my mother with all my might and strength giving her all the love and compassion that God had bestowed upon me.  It was very difficult at times; not just for her, but for me and my family.  I drew my strength from the love and compassion that I felt for my dear mother.  My heart truly went out to her and for her which is why I just could not bring myself to put her in a nursing home.  Although I had no help from my siblings, I didn’t complain, but at times I was completely worn out, but I had to keep going and I did.  I did it for her because she deserved it.

Love for the Woman I’ve Always Called Mommy Regardless of My Age; True Love

I remember my cousin saying to me, “Cyn, you give Towne (my mother’s nickname) too many choices when it comes to making her breakfast because most people would say, this is what you’re going to eat and that’s that!”.  I felt like this; my mother gave me the best of her when I was growing up.  The best care; amazing meals and an abundance of love and so much more.  It’s because of her that I am an outstanding speller.  It’s because of my mother and father that I know nothing but truth and true love.  Even when people wrong me and then turn around and ask me for money, I still open my heart to share my wealth.  My mother and father were just the greatest parents on this planet. 

They shared everything they had with me and my siblings; I would have to write a book to explain what I mean by this so I will just say they were love in every sense of the word.  In the neighborhood where I grew up, we were all family, every single person on Oxford, Nassau and Jefferson Streets adored Towne and Bud/Mary and Vernon.  There was something special and different about our home so when my mother could no longer stay in her home alone, I brought her here to my home with open arms and a loving heart.  Any child would I would like to think. 

During my mother’s stay with me, I would always go and sit in her room with her throughout the day and listen to her tell me stories about her childhood and many stories there were.  Because my days were her days, I could not run all of my businesses the way they needed to be run, but that was just fine because I figured if this is God’s plan for me right now, caring for my mother, I would do so wholeheartedly.  I knew that it was important for me to obey God’s calling and do it willingly and happily.  I so desperately wanted my mother to be comfortable, warm and full, and I believe she was.

Gone, But Always With Me

On September 15th at 12:45 a.m., the Holy Spirit woke me up, as sleepy as I was, and He told me to go and check on my mother.  I turned on the hall light which was always more than enough to see/look at her without putting on the light in her room and waking her up out of a deep good sleep.  Well, when I turned on the hall light, I looked at her and I saw that she wasn’t breathing.  I called my sons who were in the family room and I said, “I think Memom is gone!” They were up the steps in one big leap asking me if I was sure.  I said, “Yes; she’s gone.  I then woke up my husband, Bill, and told him.  I was relieved and heartbroken at the same time. Relieved that she was no longer in pain and heartbroken that she was no longer with me and my family.  She had become my fifth child and I was elated to be able to care for her almost as well as she had taken care of me, my sister and three brothers. I cried and cried the next day, truly troubled, devastated and heartbroken to say the least. 

And now here I am free to run my businesses without interruptions, but my on my how I miss those special interruptions that took up a large chunk of my life.  I miss my mother.  I love her deeply and dearly.  I will always love her.  When she developed bedsores I never gave up trying desperately to mend and rid her of that awful pain that accompanied those terrible sores.

And so it is that I write this post to tell you that in business or anything that pertains to the happiness, peace and contentment in your life and anything that pertains to your business, don’t ever give up. 

Be blessed.

Your Unique Brand

Your Brilliant Brand

 

Put Your Brand On the Shelf.

When you go to the supermarket you see a large variety of products stocked on shelves. This is how companies/manufacturersy display their own brand.

When you shop, lets say for ketchup, you’ll notice that there is always one or perhaps two brands that standout from the others.  These brands are usually the most popular who make the same kind of product, merchandise or item. This could easily be you. Just because a market may be saturated with the same product or service you may offer or provide doesn’t mean that it/you can’t be the very best.   

Whatever your product ensure that you do whatever necessary to make sure that it stands out from the rest.  Here’s how you can be sure that your product prospers and your business soars. 

Your Entrepreneurial Spirit

Your entrepreneurial spirit of discernment has you on a profound life prospering journey. 

Deep within you have superior quality, rare and priceless life building and sustaining principles that have given you a true sense of what it means to do business God’s way. 

When you accept, embrace and incorporate God’s formula to establish your brand it sets in motion and propels you to remarkable long term success. 

As entrepreneurs it is important that you recognize the fact that there is so much more to business than marketing, keeping your eye on the competition, etc. 

We understand the daily routine of speaking to and on social media; Facebook, Twitter, IG and so on, but in order to be truly successful and enjoy God’s very best in business as well as in your life we must always remember to:

  • Put God first keeping Him
  • Uppermost in your thoughts
  • Pray with a sincere and thankful heart giving God honor and glory
  • Begin each day asking God for leadership, guidance and direction for your life that will pour over and into every ounce of your business
  • Wait and Listen for God to speak before you delve into building your empire because without Him there would be no empire
  • Thank Him throughout your day everyday for His infinite wisdom and wise counsel
  • Thank the Lord for all that He will reveal to you as He moves to show you His perfect plan and will for your life and your business 
  • Honor Him by obeying and heeding His Word. 

Let your entrepreneur light shine and illuminate every aspect of your business. You have the greatest most phenomenal ability to simply be magnificent in business.

Enjoy your journey.
