What I’ve been doing isn’t working” – those are great people to invite to this class.

You might also hear:  “I want better marketing this year- but I am not sure what to do” or, ” I have all these ideas in my head that I want to do to market my business, but I don’t know where to start”… those are also great people to tell about this class.

There is a limited capacity to the amount of people I will accept in the class room.  Right now, seats are still available- but are filling up.

Thanks for sharing and here’s to making 2012 an amazing one!

Color Me Purple

One thing I have learned to love and appreciate is the importance of planning.   Usually I start my business planning for the next year in Nov.  Then, I work on the finer details of my plans in Dec.

Now that December is here, I am ready for the next level of my plans. Business growth plans and the marketing plans which go along accordingly.

People who see me out and about usually comment on my organization of everything I do. In part, day plannerit starts with an old school approach: I simply use a good old fashioned weekly calendar.  I actually hate spending money on a calendar (I think they charge too much)… but, each year I am glad I invested into one. In fact, I get a good one (so I spend a bit more.) 

With all the technology out there- I know I could be ‘up with the times’ but a physical calendar works for my kinetic learning style. Also I never have to worry about a battery going out and losing all my data.

My calendars need to have a very good cover as this is used daily and it travels out and about with me.  This years calendar I chose is a nice lavendar covered one. The store did not have preferred deeper purple… so lavendar it is.   I know this is goofy- but I have to like looking at the calendar since I use it every day. 🙂

I must say, I was pleasantly treated to a good upsell at the check out counter. Rarely do I see a sales rep do a good upsell so it was a treat for me to be the recipient of a perfectly excuted one!!  LOL!   The gal checking my lavendar calendar out at the cash register said “Since you have such a nice purple calendar… you need a purple pen to to with it.  I just happen to have one right here. ”  I smiled and asked her if it had purple ink.  She said “Yes!” and did a perfect demonstration. She then handed me the pen and paper to write on. I did, and I bought.

She had no way of knowing that I used to always write important things in purple ink. It had been a long time since I had a pen like that.

So- how does this tie into my year end planning: its’ simple.  I now have my purple calendar, my purple pen to go along w/ my purple glasses, desk lamps and other accessories.  Although purple is my personal favorite color- you will find that I actually love many colors that are jewel toned. I use color very wisely – depending on my need and environmnet.

To wrap up: if you love purple, here’s what some say about your personality. This one fits me pretty well:

Purples are highly individual, fastidious, witty and sensitive, with a strong desire to be unique and different. Temperamental, expansive and artistic, a Purple person may become aloof and sarcastic when misunderstood. If you chose Purple, you tend to be unconventional, tolerant and dignified, likely to achieve positions of authority.

Have some fun and be sure to pencil in time before the end of the year to do your planning. Good leaders and good marketers know how valuble this quiet time is. It’s an investment into your future.

If you need help with marketing planning so what you do is effective, I can help. I’ve done simple 6 month at a glance ‘yellow pad’ plans- along with agency level 3,5, 10 year and exit strategy plans.  Businesses need to plan now more than ever before to create profitablity short term and long term.

Happy Planning!

Leadership Skills Training Expert Debbra Sweet Speaks at RBBA on Leadership in Business Networking

This summer has been filled with the opportunities to speak at different organizations on the Power of Leadership in Business Networking.

The topic is based on the book I helped co-author and release last year. It’s exciting to see the interest in the subject. I am looking forward to the upcoming events where I will have the chance to deliver more valuable insights on this subject.

Here’ a press piece that was done about an event I spoke at in Aug:

On August 10th, 2011 the RBBA had Debbra Sweet, founder of Sweet Marketing Solutions and author in the Power of Leadership Book series, speak at their monthly luncheon on the Power of Leadership in Business Networking.

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

debbra-sweet-the-power-of-leadershipPRLog (Press Release)Sep 01, 2011 – Lunch and learns for working professionals can be the forum to network with other like minded business pros.   The Rancho Bernardo Business Association   (RBBA) recently brought in Debbra Sweet, a leadership expert, who specializes in change management in the areas of marketing, business, leadership, and wellness was invited to speak on the topic of the ‘Power of Leadership In Business Networking’.

Sweet has developed a reputation as a leader who not only teaches, trains, coaches and consults on the subjects of leadership, business, marketing, sales and wellness- but she is one whose peers confidently share “She lives it.”

Those who have been clients, students or attendees at any of Sweet’s events say: “There are people talk about doing things. Then are people who do. Debbra is a doer.  What she says she’ll do, she delivers150%”

.

Others declare: “She has the ability to engage you from the beginning with confidence and comfort. You know standing before you is someone who will lead and who truly cares about you, your success and your results”.

A successful business owner of a few different companies, Debbra Sweet is located in San Diego County. She is also an author and speaker in the areas of leadership, business, marketing, sales and wellness.   Sweet’s popularity and demand for teaching on the ‘Power of Leadership in Business Networking’ is growing rapidly.

Businesses, schools, networking and industry organizations realize the importance of delivering high valued content to employees, students and members.  The climate and need for better leadership has become keenly aware amongst people who are concerned about the state of the economy today.

Word of mouth marketing, a subject Sweet is a certified trainer in, is even more important now than ever before. This type of communication has always been present, both in the business world and personal lives. Again, with concerns about the state and stability of current events, more business owners and heads of house holds are relying upon this type of community support to ensure they make better choices when it comes to making important decisions.

Sweet was invited to speak on at the August luncheon because she excels in the topics and skill sets of leadership development and word of mouth marketing, a.k.a. networking.

The attendee’s were riveted to the content she shared.  Sweet’s unique delivery engages the participants and grasps their attention.  “I speak to the participants and with the participants, not at them,” she explained.  Sweet’s positive disposition and upbeat personality left her audience craving more; more information, more knowledge, more Sweet!

A recent correspondence between Sweet and one of the RBBA attendees included a sharing to Sweet “I did my best to really apply what you taught us.  I remembered that my leadership roles and actions are needed everywhere- even in the check out counter at the grocery store! Thank you for speaking that day. Your insights were invaluable.”

The Power of Leadership in Business Networking topic that Sweet is being booked for a featured and keynote speaker and leadership skills development trainer is based on the book she co-authored.  That book is also called “The Power of Leadership in Business Networking”. It is book four of a twelve part series in development on leadership today.

Leadership Development Training Expert Debbra Sweet Speaks to No. County Women’s Networking Group

On July 13 2011 Debbra Sweet, founder of Sweet Marketing Solutions and Author in the Power of Leadership Book series, taught about the Power of Leadership in Business Networking to the North County Woman’s Networking Group.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

debbra-sweet-the-power-of-leadershipDebbra Sweet The Power of LeadershipPRLog (Press Release) – Aug 28, 2011 – The most influential women in women history did not succeed merely by themselves. They had a cohort of their fellow women peers to look to for help, support and inspiration. These historical figures are teachers to womankind, just as much as mothers are teachers to their children and teachers to the rest of the world through their sharing of knowledge, experience and wisdom.

Debbra Sweet, a leadership expert, who specializes in change management in the areas of marketing, business, leadership, and wellness was invited to speak at the North County Woman’s In Networking Group (NCWIN) on the topic of the ‘Power of Leadership In Business Networking’.

 

Sweet, a successful business owner of a few different companies located in San Diego County, is also an author and speaker in the areas of leadership, business, marketing, sales and wellness.   Sweet is getting booked often now to speak on the topic of Leadership in Business Networking.

Her years of teaching and building businesses by way of integrating word of mouth marketing and networking has positioned Sweet as a leader in this area. Her track record is strong as she has helped many businesses develop ROI in the millions with her knowledge, teaching and training on this subject.

When asked about the books concept, Debbra shares “This book is not about teaching how to be a leader. This is not about how to network. The concept is how to Be a leader When networking.”   She goes on to say “The world is a different place today. It’s not enough to just talk about leadership. You have to live it.  In business, a core commonality of people is to network, to build community.”

She continues: “Unfortunately, there are many people who come to networking situations with lack of knowledge that every thing they do has a direct result on whether they will, or will not, achieve the goals they set forth with their networking.  This book, along with the leadership training program my company has, opens up eyes and awareness that one must be a leader when networking.  This subject is hot on the ears of those who want better business, better results, better relationships- whether it is in the corporate world, mom and pop businesses, amongst college  peers or even at social events.”

The NCWIN, who brought Sweet into their luncheon event on the 13th of July, is a collaboration of prestigious businesswoman and entrepreneurs in San Diego North County. The NCWIN’s goal is to promote networking with the common focus: to aid one another in owning and developing successful businesses.

Sweet was invited to speak at the July luncheon and the attendee’s were riveted to the content she shared.  Sweet’s unique delivery engages the participants and grasps their attention.  “I speak to the participants and with the participants, not at them,” she explained.  Sweet’s positive disposition and upbeat personality left her audience craving more; more information, more knowledge, more Sweet!

The response Debbra received from the women at NCWIN was overwhelmingly positive and motivational. “The women were hungry for more and eager to share what they learned with their family and friends. Leaderships transcends past the business world and into all aspects of our lives,” Sweet informed.  

Sweet speaks at national and international conferences too.  Since her expertise is not exclusive to Leadership, she often will get asked to teach and train on other subjects as well.   What she does best is help people identify those areas they need to, and want to, grow in.  She then helps them research, plan, implement and navigate through the steps needed to achieve success.

“It is inspirational and invigorating to have an esteemed businesswoman, mentor and mother as a motivator and educator speaking to our members,” proclaimed one of the NCWIN board members.  “Sweet really does have the niche for public speaking.”

It is her professional and personal experiences that validate her reputation with these women. People are looking for someone they can look up to, aspire to, someone who is easy to talk to on a personal basis. That is exactly what Sweet does. She is relatable.  She is a people’s person. She is successful and is a great mentor of success.

Summary:

Leadership Training expert, Debbra Sweet,  is called “A People Mover”. She’s an agent of change. In life, business, marketing, sales, leadership, health & wellness.

A believer that change, on a larger scale, starts first with the individual Debbra Sweet is an advocate for the power and potential of human capital.

Marketing Firm Sweet Marketing Solutions Develops Marketing Training Class for San Diego Roofers

One of the things I love to do is create and deliver amazing, interactive training classes. 

Hands On Training LearningHearing people talk is one thing. Being part of the learning process as a student is another.

This event was great to do.  Working on a specialized marketing strategies training day now just for the Women Entrepreneur.

Read the press release below and let me know: What would you like to learn at an event like this?

Debbra

Marketing Firm, Sweet Marketing Solutions, based in San Diego, developed and led a special Marketing Training Event on Sat. April 9, 2011 which focused on affordability and effective marketing for San Diego Roofers .

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PRLog (Press Release)Jun 06, 2011– Sweet Marketing Solutions was founded by Debbra Sweet. Sweet’s talent as a mentor and entrepreneur is rare and visionary.  Besides an author of several books including “The Power of Leadership Book Series”, and a co-author in the New York Times Best Seller “Masters of Sales” Sweet has created an easy-to-follow marketing training series “How To” just for Roofing Contractors. Marketing Made Easy for the Roofing Contractor.
 
Sweet is not only on the board of the SDRCA, (the San Diego Roofing Contractors Association)  she is an integral aspect to the ongoing education and success of roofers. “After attending Sweet Marketing Solutions Marketing Strategies training session I was able to take the tools Debbra taught and apply it to my marketing strategies. Immediately I got results.
Who knew that something as simple as changing your approach could score you top bid for a top account?!” enthused a SDRCA associate roofer.
 
Just this year on Saturday April 9th Debbra facilitated a marketing training event developed by her for the Southern California SDRCA members. This event was sponsored by Dry Force, a local water mitigation company.  The SDRCA provides on- going education and training to the roofing members. The roofers in the SDRCA are top tradesmen, educated and up-to-date on the new materials and methods of roofing.
 
It is opportunities like the marketing training taught by Sweet Marketing Solutions that help the roofers to ascend up their tradesman ladder.Sweet Marketing Solutions takes a unique approach when consulting their clients. First and foremost, it is their goal to educate their clients by teaching them about the marketing industry and the importance of effective marketing – including effective networking. “It is essential that the roofers understand the important of networking,” states Sweet.
 
“The goal of this training session with the SDRCA is to showcase the importance and benefits of working in alliance with Dry Force to gain business and to support the community”.The purpose of the training day was to help roofers to communicate more effectively with San Diego homeowners by showcasing the benefits of working with an association member when having maintenance and new roofs installed. Sweet, who specializes in effective marketing, works with contractors and tradesmen around the country.
 
 Her ongoing success in helping contractors and tradesmen to build and maintain a successful and lucrative business through affordable and effective marketing has earned her a reputation nationally recognized by marketing gurus.Many training sessions available for contractors these days are dull and diluted by rote dialect and PowerPoint’s. Instructors are spending hours talking at you rather than talking to you. Not Debbra. Her interactive teaching style brings her workshops to life by enticing contractors to dig under the surface and ask questions. Although time may be focused on the training agenda, none is wasted as Debbra makes the time to individually address each question.

Sweet recognizes the importance of building and fostering relationships for the success and progression of businesses in the same work force. Roofing and home water mitigation are two interrelated trades. Sweet recognized the natural relationship and set up this event with Dry Force and the SDRCA roofers. “They already co-function in the same industry, so why not help each other in building reputation, trust and credibility within a common community,” states Sweet.

Sweet’s main goal for the marketing training session was to help the SDRCA and Dry force recognize the importance in building strong relationships with one another and team up to accomplish their common goal to help the home owner receive top quality service the first . “It is great to know that we can confidently recommend Dry Force to our homeowners that contact us about flooding,” proclaimed an associate roofer post-training.

As a marketing firm  Sweet Marketing Solutions takes pride helping contractors to attain and improve affordable and effective marketing skills. This was not the first or last training session Debbra will facilitate for the SDRCA.  Debbra and the team at Sweet Marketing Solutions look forwards to providing more marketing training seminars.  

Just because you are not a roofing contractor does not mean you are excluded from the opportunity to enhance your marketing skills with Debbra Sweet. Sweet’s marketing knowledge is applicable to many industries and can be tailored to best benefit you and your company.
