This past Monday's Team Call from Jordan Adler, he interviewed a lady who lives in a small town in Arizona. She mostly built her business with cold calls, and the thing that I was reminded of from that call was to follow up with people to whom you've sent a card. And have a way to keep track of who you sent a card to and when, so that you can follow up with them in a timely manner.
I recently read some things from a book called "Lower Your Taxes Big Time!" by Sandy Botkin, and it had some great nuggets of information on how self-employed business people can take tax deductions. The main thing I can apply is to get a tax diary, or tax organizer, and keep really good records about income and expenses.
The last thing I want to mention was from listening to Dani Johnson's Spirit Driven Success CD #7. She talked about how life and death are in the power of the tongue, because the speech center of the brain has complete dominion over your entire reality.
