Hello and Welcome to the November issue of the OkayNowWhat Newsletter!
November is the month where the holiday of Thanksgiving is celebrated in the United States (Canada celebrates it in October). The holiday is one where family and friends gather and in addition to gorging themselves on more food than is typically consumed at one time, they also perform a very important function that entrepreneurs have a tendency to ignore. That function is explained further in the video, but as just a quick tease to the core of the message - how productive or successful is a Thanksgiving feast if it is consumed by yourself with no one at your table?
Just like it requires a tremendous amount of preparation to; invite the guests and follow up with them to ensure they can come on time, shop for the meal, set the table, find the recipes and modify to your (and/or your guests') tastes, ensure the home is clean and ready for guests to arrive, and then once the meal is consumed, devote the time to cleaning up - so too does running your own business mirror these actions. However; the actual coming together as family and friends is what the video focuses on. Click on the image below to view the important lessons we can take from Thanksgiving and apply to your business.
Taking it step-by-step, we can help you build:
1. The awareness of your business strengths you already have
2. The steps to help you get from where you are now to where you want to be
3. The plan to keep you making progress and able to overcome obstacles
4. The appropriate metrics to use on your journey to success.
5. MOST IMPORTANTLY - An entrepreneurial mindset for achievement and accomplishment.

I offer one-on-one personal coaching of varying lengths and online training that you can take at your own pace to learn and apply the lessons needed to begin the journey toward business ownership.

ONW (OKAYNOWWHAT) INSIGHTS
After over 30 years working in corporate training, sales enablement, management and having worn the hats of; corporate employee, entrepreneur, author, academic, keynote speaker, and youth sports coach and mentor, I am now adding to my roster of jobs - business coach. While I still maintain the original businesses (www.zahnconsulting.com and www.workshop360.biz), I am now adding www.okaynowwhat.biz. It is through this new offering that I will assist new entrepreneurs, those considering becoming entrepreneurs, and business professionals who want to rekindle the spark they once had for the work they do - but have lost their passion over time.
I want to be of service - it is through that effort that the greatest rewards can be found and shared with others. Having seen and experienced much in my career from many different sides of business relationships, I want to share it with others and provide the learning to help others accomplish their goals.
Together, we CAN achieve great things. Working collaboratively and meeting each challenge as it arises and overcoming it until we feel completely confident in your ability to do so without guidance. Working with your own private cheering section to lift you up when you stumble and provide you with guardrails and a metaphorical safety harness when trying new things to expand your reach and capability.

Unless your business skills include Graphic Arts, you likely are destined to either pay someone to provide you with attractive logos, images, or artwork to use on business cards, websites, logos, brochures, or other marketing collateral, or resort to the templates available with your OFFICE software purchase that came loaded on your computer.
Another option that is FREE is to use Canva, a full-featured graphic arts program that allows you to leverage the thousands upon thousands of templates and examples - all user-definable and able to be customized!
It will save you HOURS of time and provide you with an outcome that is attractive, easy to work with, and do it far quicker than you likely could have done it yourself.
Try it. You will find a treasure trove of opportunity!
We have now launched our hybrid ONLINE training with REMOTE VIRTUAL LIVE Coaching this month. Click here for details.
