This week let’s talk about the 60 seconds and how to deliver a good 60 seconds.
Before this , please remember that 60 seconds means 60 seconds and you have to respect this timing.
You have 5 main points:
1) Begin with a good introduction: talk with enthusiasm and passion about your business and your role within it.
2) Pick one service,one product or one benefit that you provide to your clients.
In this sense, give examples of how you have helped your clients recently
3) Tell it with a story about the client of the month or of the week.
Make it alive (it’s very early in the morning ?) simple and concrete to help people to find you referrals
4) Call to action, ask for business:
How could the other members help you? What do you want them to do?
Ask for a name, title, company or for people that could provide you some business
5) Close and find a memory hook
Movers & Shakers!

Last Saturday I was suffering from flu, and I had a very important coaching session to attend the following day.
It was evening, I was out celebrating a friends reunion and what I came back home I was worse.
So I ran a hot bath and poured a generous amount of Kadifa’s Grapefruit and Lime Bath and Body oil and soaked for about 20 minutes. Dried myself and went to sleep.
I slept like a baby and woke up next day feeling completely refreshed and my flu almost gone.
My coaching session went really well and no one had any idea I had the flu.
Kadifa’s Naturally Made For You is a fantastic brand and I have used her product to moisturize my skin as I am prone to dry skin and it has been very good.
I can highly recommend Kadifa and her fantastic products for skin care.

Are you doing what matters most to you?
I’m not talking about what makes you happy in the moment, but rather, what really drives your life. What gives your life meaning?
In a study published in the Journal of Positive Psychology that examines self-reported attitudes toward happiness and meaning, the researchers found a meaningful life and a happy life overlap in certain ways, but are ultimately different, reports Emily Esfahani Smith in The Atlantic.
