There are four pieces here, first is fixed vs growth mindset from scholar Carol Dweck. And second is abundance vs scarcity from scholar Stephan Covey.The fixed mindset vs growth mindsetTo briefly summarizeThose who hold a fixed mindset believe that they are either good or bad at something based on their inherent natureSo for example, you are a born leader, a natural sales person. You naturally gifted at something. You are who you are.Or conversely, there are those who believe in the growth mindset.These are Individuals who believe their talents can be developed (through hard work, good strategies, and input from others) have a growth mindset.Now the second piece is with with abundance mentality vs scarcity mentality. Someone with an abundant mentality is an optimist and is genuinely happy for others when they achieve success. Conversely, those with a scarcity mindset are competitive and resent other's success.Follow Don online at Www.4csofaccountability.comPlease subscribe to The Morning Jolt Podcast at: Apple: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-morning-jolt-podcast/id1511514689 Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/0Rqxjrxz9KccnTeZzkIXXB?si=IbYYXGAmRTeCmDs2JcNzXDon Markland is the CEO and owner of Accountability Now™, an Executive Coaching and Business Strategy company out of Jacksonville, Florida.

Much has been written about entrepreneurs and salespeople needing to overcome fear to be successful. We’ve heard Ted Talks that inspire us to act, seen the fire walks that motivate us to move and even read the stories that invigorate us to fight through fear, yet it seems that somehow the message doesn’t get through. Time and time again, too many entrepreneurs and salespeople succumb to fear. The problem is they don’t even know it.Getting to $1 million in sales starts with simple, repeatable processes and a persistent mindset to break things and overcome your daily fears.Yielding to fear can be masked in many forms that we feel are productive -- it can be clouded in a myriad of busy yet seemingly fruitful activities. Researchers James Hayton and Gabriella Cacciotti from Harvard Business Review write that many entrepreneurs who are paralyzed by a fear of failure spend more time talking about issues rather than actually doing something about them. Instead of actively being on the phone trying to gain new customers, the entrepreneurs paralyzed by fear are stuck in conference rooms doing something like the following:•Brainstorming why they need to call more customers•Discussing reasons why they haven’t been calling customers recently•Strategizing new ways to contact customers because calling doesn’t seem to be working anymoreIn the end, they are talking and not doing. Many of those same entrepreneurs or salespeople would never suggest they are paralyzed by fear.You’ll learn the three streps you breakthings and be so much more productive it’ll blow your mind!

For almost nine in ten companies (and that’s 84%), it’s very vital to have data at the very core of their business strategy. Sadly, nearly half (43 percent) fail to consistently use data to guide business decisions. This is why being data-centric is so friggin’ important! What’s crazy is that so many people, teams, and organizations are calling themselves data-centric yet they aren’t. They are simply pretending to be. Are you committing the sins of data-centric masquerading?

We all know what testimonials are but let me really specific here.According to Merriam-Webster, here is what testimony is defined as:a)solemn declaration usually made orally by a witness under oath…b)firsthand authentication of a fact So a customer testimonial is an oath driven factual statement about a company’s service or product. I love what the group StrategicFactory said about it on their blog stating“Consumers naturally trust each other more than they trust just marketing collateral, so that testimonial adds more weight to the decision they're trying to make.”Here are some additional statistics as if you didn’t need more convincing:•92% of consumers read online reviews and testimonials when considering a purchase. According to Vendasta•95% of people say that reviews – whether positive, or negative – influence their purchasing decisions. Study conducted by Wyzowl•90% of buyers who read positive customer success content claimed that it influenced their purchasing decisions. Study from Dimensional Research•Customer testimonials have the highest effectiveness rating for content marketing at 89% research from Social Fresh•47% of people say testimonial videos are effective because they help visualise how a product or service actually works another study from WyzowlSo if we know testimonials are so powerful, we do so many companies struggle to get them? We see certain companies doing really well, they flood TrustPilot and Google Reviews all the time, whereas others, especially smaller groups, startups, solopreneurs, coaches, really miss the mark here. Simply put, two reasons:First, you don’t have a process in place to ask for them.Second, you don’t have know how to use them once you get them.Follow Don online at https://accountabilitynow.subscribemenow.com/Please subscribe to The Morning Jolt Podcast at: Apple: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-morning-jolt-podcast/id1511514689 Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/0Rqxjrxz9KccnTeZzkIXXB?si=IbYYXGAmRTeCmDs2JcNzXDon Markland is the CEO and owner of Accountability Now™, an Executive Coaching and Business Strategy company out of Jacksonville, Florida.

In your life, you should have a love / hate relationship with your boss, or mentor, or executive. Not because they are rude or cruel to you, but because they ask questions of you that make you uncomfortable – they make you rethink things and look at things in a different way. This is part of executive presence. Having the state of mind and willingness to ask the questions to people that cause them to think and act differently. Big shout outs to Lisa Lai from Harvard Business Review and her work https://hbr.org/2017/01/being-a-strategic-leader-is-about-asking-the-right-questionsAnd Dr Amy Cuddy for her amazing boom Presence Follow Don online at https://accountabilitynow.subscribemenow.com/Please subscribe to The Morning Jolt Podcast at: Apple: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-morning-jolt-podcast/id1511514689 Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/0Rqxjrxz9KccnTeZzkIXXB?si=IbYYXGAmRTeCmDs2JcNzXDon Markland is the CEO and owner of Accountability Now™, an Executive Coaching and Business Strategy company out of Jacksonville, Florida.

In my years as a leader, executive and top business coach, I’ve asked countless individuals to tell me about the best boss they’ve ever had and sure enough, their eyes always light up. Further, I regularly coach people when working with bad bosses. I teach that we can learn from every boss we ever work with, good or bad. Sadly, the feedback they give on bad bosses is significantly more regular. Many times, people find themselves in a situation with not only a bad boss, but a bully boss with no idea what to do.First, some context on workplace bullying and the bully boss. How bad of a problem is this?A 2017 study found:• 60 million Americans are affected by workplace bullying in some fashion• Of those affected, Bosses comprise 61% of bullies• When trying to stop bullying, 65% of bullied employees lost their original jobsHere is the Stress Management Tool Kithttps://www.themuse.com/advice/mental-health-professionals-advice-dealing-with-an-emotionally-abusive-boss-cant-leaveFollow Don online at https://accountabilitynow.subscribemenow.com/Please subscribe to The Morning Jolt Podcast at: Apple: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-morning-jolt-podcast/id1511514689 Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/0Rqxjrxz9KccnTeZzkIXXB?si=IbYYXGAmRTeCmDs2JcNzXDon Markland is the CEO and owner of Accountability Now™, an Executive Coaching and Business Strategy company out of Jacksonville, Florida.

In every industry, every company, every department, and sometimes even every team, we see them: the highly productive people who seem to be able to do more and produce more and who make people say, “How do they do it?” So we often spend our money on cheats like trendy apps or new reminders that we hope will give us the productivity jolt we’ve always seemed to lack.In studying super-productive individuals, I’ve come to believe it isn’t the apps, the technology or their ability to use assistants that makes them productive. The most common trait I see is what I call the power morning. For years, I struggled to maximize my own productivity in my work as a sales executive. Then through hours of personal study of hyper-productive individuals, I developed the method of the power morning — in other words, a duplicatable process I feel is commonly followed by the most effective and productive leaders.This comes down to creating your POWER MORNING. This podcast gives you these insights that will change your life more than anything expect perhaps the 4Cs of Accountability.
