Selling A Service (a poem)

When selling a service,
There’s no debt to eat
When selling a service,
No inventory

When selling a service
There’s almost no risk
When selling a service
The startup is quick

When selling a service
It’s all what you do
When selling a service
The product is YOU!

I don’t hate the tangibles
They don’t come for free
But selling a service is
What works for me ūüôā

Pray For Your Business (a poem)

“Cry unto him over the crops of your fields, that ye may prosper in them.
Cry over the flocks of your fields, that they may increase.”
-Alma 34:24-25

Pray for your business
Pray for your scores
Pray for encounters to
Open up doors

Pray for your clients
Those that you serve
Pray to deliver the
Things they deserve

Pray in successes
Pray as your grow
Pray to remember from
Whom blessings flow

Pray in your failures
The lowest of lows
Pray to learn something
Then let the rest go

Pray for your business
Your work or career
Pray, get to WORK, and then
Good things appear

“The Lord would want you to be successful. He would.”
-President Gordon B. Hinckley

The Paradox of Peace (Sidewalk Advocacy)

A paradox of peace
The method employed
The more you abide (the more)
“Business” destroyed

Assertive and confident
Not bossy, but bold
(And yes, you belong there
Despite what you’ve been told)

NEVER be violent
Always be kind
Trust precedes chances to
Change someone’s mind

The more that you’re “normal”
The more people talk
Miracles happen there
On the sidewalk

Steps to the Sale: Marketing 101 (A Poem)

Attention is when they know you exist
The next step is to generate interest 
Desire is wanting the thing you provide
The definitive point is when they decide 
Conversion, transaction is closing the deal
Congratulations! You just made a sale 

“Always be closing.”
-Glengarry Glen Ross

Two Kinds of Value (a poem)

The Lord would want you to be successful.”
-President Gordon B. Hinckley 

Two kinds of value, two kinds of worth
One from the market, one before birth
One is a constant, one fluctuates
One is inherent, and one can be changed

The way that our Heavenly Parents see you
And then all the skills and the things you can do
You need to provide, should pursue a career
Gain knowledge, experience, stand out in your field.

So go make great money. Go big and go win!
But don’t ever let dirty pride sneak on in
And while your aspire and make a great name
Remember to God that we all are the same

“The worth of souls is great in the sight of God.”
-Doctrine & Covenants 18:10

Don’t Eat the Fruit (a poem)

“When reminded about the premortal shouting for joy,
in some moments, we wonder what all the shouting was about.”
-Neal A. Maxwell 

Don’t eat the fruit¬†
Ignore the damn snake
The joys you experience 
Won’t outweigh the pain

Keep yourself safe
Avoid bitter cups
Maybe it’s worth the
Things you’ll give up

You can’t stop the train
So don’t even board
You don’t have a clue of the
Wreckage in store
Sure thought I could handle it, thought I was strong
But lately it seems I could not be more wrong.

Ball’s In Their Court (a poem)

I like when clients don’t respond
I get a little break
That thing I’ve been avoiding
(Now I’ve) Got a few more days

I like when they apologize
“So sorry for delays!”
I reassure them all is fine
Emoji smiley face

When the ball is in their court,
I like when they don’t play
If somebody’s been slacking
(It’s not) Me who’s off my game

I don’t mind when they ghost me
When it comes to pay
If money’s there in escrow
I get it either way
