My WHIM Life with Wendy

My WHIM Life with Wendy

Welcome to the My WHIM Life show where it is our mission is to create a significant impact in this world by sharing WISDOM, HUMOR, INSPIRATION & MOTIVATION in such a way that YOU will use it to affect actual real change in your own life and the lives of others creating a ripple effect of goodness!

This week’s guest is Chadwick “Chad” Taylor, a man of many talents, a self-labeled geeky nerd, that has found a way to make the entrepreneur life a little bit easier. Please help me welcome, Chad Taylor.

Where you can reach him: customerservice@servicecenterpro.com or info@servicecenterpro.com Check out their website: www.servicecenterpro.com Give them a call: 1-800-747-8939

Chad’s Fun Facts:

Q: What was your first word? A: no idea… momma?

Q: School achievements? A: taught myself to play piano by ear

Q: What was your nickname as a child? A: Chad don’t

Q: What was your imaginary friend’s name and a description of them? A: I have frequent meditation sessions where I imagine myself in a room filled with different people. Napoleon Hill, Benjamin Franklin, Andrew Carnegie, John Rockefeller, Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Elon Musk, Martin Luther King Jr., and Thomas Edison. I’ve studied each of these men’s lives, habits, achievements and more and then I use these meditation sessions to ask these men what they would do in the situation that I find myself in. Sometimes I come up with some amazing inspirations. Other times they just stare back at me like I’m a crazy person imagining a bunch of old dudes in a room.

Q: Who is your favorite celebrity and why? A: Rick Moranis. He was a great actor, produced some really funny, family-friendly comedies, and then disappeared from the limelight to take care of his wife with cancer. Never has acted or appeared anywhere since (as a celebrity). Now he just takes care of his kids. This selfless act has always inspired me to be better.

Q: What was your most embarrassing moment? A: I don’t really get embarrassed about anything, but I LOVE to embarrass anyone/everyone around me. I’m a huge prankster, and so is my wife. we have a vow to never prank each other because it would escalate so fast we’d end up getting divorced in no time.

Q: Favorite food? A: big ol’ cheeseburger and fries are my kryptonite. I love a good cheeseburger.

Q: Most disgusting food? A: seafood. anything that smells/tastes fishy. If the best compliment you can give a food is that it doesn’t taste like itself, then I don’t want it. “it doesn’t even taste like fish” – not for me.

Q: Do you sleep on your… A: Side

Q: Which superpower would you want to have and why? A: I’m completely torn between flying and invisibility. the problem with flying is I’d never walk or move, so I’d get really fat. if there were a guarantee that I could always fly no matter how much I weighed, then I’d pick flying. If, however, there was a limit… then I’d pick invisibility so no one knew how fat I was. especially if I could only make my body invisible and leave my head floating around. that’d be fun for Halloween.

Q: What is your greatest fear? A: I’m afraid of all venomous snakes. non-venomous are perfectly fine.

Q: What is your biggest dream? A: my dream is to take The Service Center to a 300 million dollar valuation and then franchise it to leave a legacy to my generations that never ends.

Q: What is your stance on pineapple on pizza? A: As long as it’s pineapple and pepperoni. Or Canadian bacon. or just pineapple. I love pineapple. it belongs on everything. especially pizza.

Q: If you were a flower, which one would you be? A: snapdragon. don’t pinch my cheeks

Q: In a zombie apocalypse, what is your weapon of choice? A: I’d pick a shovel. not as glamorous, but I’ll never run out of bullets and when not bashing in the heads of zombies it’s a useful tool to bury all the people that ran out of bullets.

Q: If you had 10 dogs and someone took one, how many dogs would you have left? A: 10 dogs and 1 dead body

Q: If you had to wear a disclaimer statement everywhere you went, what would it say? A: Regardless of what I just told you: I’m not hungry, my wife feeds me plenty and since I’m not dying, I don’t get one last wish. If found, Please return me to my wife.

Q: If you were losing your hair, would you transplant or comb over? A: Bic razor it. Thank you so much for joining us today!

Please take a moment to subscribe so you don’t miss a moment of the goodness! And then share it with all of your friends who need a little WISDOM, HUMOR, INSPIRATION & MOTIVATION in their life! Hugs, Wendy

What Do Successful Business Owners Do?

What Do Successful Business Owners Do?

Practice the 4 “_____ation’s”…

Let’s discuss the power of the 4 “_____ation’s”… Automation, Innovation, Delegation and Elimination.

  • AutomationAutomation is a powerful tool in business and key to the success of any growing organization. With thousands of different software tools out there to choose from, it’s difficult to effectively set up the right process on your own. Using automation experts, such as those at The Service Center, can really help you set up your systems and processes for automation and ultimately success!

  • IntegrationIntegration and automation go hand in hand. Along with automation, utilizing various tools to integrate your processes together will help save you lots of time and money. For example… some calendars can be integrated with your CRM or email campaigns. When you’re building your processes and systems with automation in mind, be sure to select the software programs that easily integrate with your current tools (or be prepared to replace them with ones that do).

  • Delegation – Whether you delegate to an employee, a spouse, or outsource entirely; identify tasks that are non-revenue generating or simple but time consuming tasks that can be easily delegated to other individuals. Phone calls are the number one inconvenience to most small business owners, and often they’re not in the best position to be answering the phone when it rings. Having an answering service, like The Service Center, can greatly increase your effectiveness while on the job, while never missing another potential client to a missed call.

  • Elimination – When you can’t do anything else to increase efficiency, look for things that you simply don’t need or use and eliminate them. The time distractions, and time wasters.

Success in Business – What Does it Mean?

Success in Business – What Does it Mean?

Success is no accident.

While everyone views success differently, we all have a firm grasp of what “failed” looks like. Most failures blame their circumstances on everything else but themselves. Environment, stock market, so-and-so who did/didn’t do such-and-such to them, and more – always the victim, never the victor. Yet the same people, if they were suddenly (and magically) blessed with instant success, would take all the credit. Fail or succeed, it’s your choice… both are hard roads to travel, but only one is done with intentional action. The other, can be easily found by unintentional or subconscious action (or lack thereof).

Start small. Think Big.

The best advice that I ever took was from Zig Ziglar who wrote in his book, See you at the Top, “Take a big of a step as you can, but take it now.” We often, as business owners and solopreneurs, get (what has been so aptly named) “analysis paralysis” when we overthink the steps necessary to achieve what we feel is success. While it’s important to dream big, and remove all limitations in our own minds; it’s also MORE important to start. Start somewhere, anywhere! Just start. Take a step today, as big of a step as you can, but take it… now.

  • Never stop learning – With the advancements in technology, communication, travel, medicine and more… it’s a wonder and a mystery that so many people in this world remain ignorant to the vast array of knowledge literally surrounding them. The power to learn everything in our universe – all the books ever written, the sermons ever spoken, the songs ever sung, music ever composed, pictures ever taken and experiences ever shared are literally in the palm of your hand. Yet, what do we do with such awesome power? Wielding in your hand the greatest power of education and learning the world has ever known, how do we as a society exploit it’s gifts? By watching silly cat videos and dash cam videos of car crashes, that’s how.

    Take time each day to further your experience, education, general knowledge, skills, behaviors, habits, and more. Never. Stop. Learning.

  • Experience is undervalued – Never underestimate the power of experience. People will continuously surprise you if you give them the chance to excel.

  • Be courageous – Courage is not the absence of fear. Courage is being in the presence of fear, doubt, danger and dismay and continuing onward regardless, not giving in to the negative and persevering through it into success.
