Hello and Welcome to the November issue of the OkayNowWhat Newsletter!
We have made it to November. The early "start of school" efforts are now behind you and the class has likely settled into a regular pacing (one hopes it is positive!). For some, the enthusiasm and excitement that you had when school started about two months ago has now worn off and you regret not taking more steps to start your transition out of the classroom. However it is not too late to begin now. If you click on the video you will see the parallels between High School Football and where you are now.
However; for many wanna' be entrepreneurs, they live in a perpetual state of fear or anxiety about it takes to succeed as a business owner - or even to consider starting a business. In this video, we explore the following insights:
1. You are starting where you are. It does not benefit you to "wish" you were somewhere else. You are in the place you are and can build from there. There are no "shoulds" to consider. You are where you are starting, not where you "should" be.
2. Comparing yourself to someone else is not helpful. No matter how quickly they achieved, or how much faster you have achieved milestones is of no consequence to your future and the sustainability of your business.
3. Small incremental gains are what you seek. Progress is the goal and is to be celebrated.
4. The goal is obviously to "win" or score, but it rarely happens in just a few attempts, but rather it occurs through steady work.
5. While it is easy to criticize or cheer others while being in the stands, it does not advance your business opportunities. You only can eventually win if you are working toward it.

REMEMBER: 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.

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.

In this day and time it is essential that a business owner provide more than just a product or service to differentiate from competition. Prospects and customers often prefer to purchase from businesses that have a personality or demonstrate something aspirational or relatable to them. A tool that allows a business owner to show who they are, what they stand for, what their ideas are, etc. is a podcast where the business owner can demonstrate all of that and more. Whether through interviews, monologues, stream of consciousness, humor, etc., prospects are able to determine if the business is one that they wish to engage with through purchases. There are many podcast hosting sites that offer distribution, opportunities for monetizing the podcast, some provide cover art assistance, etc. One such provider is https://anchor.fm/. This host site is closely aligned with Spotify to distribute podcasts, though it also distributes to many other sites as well for downloads of podcasts.
Try it. You will find a treasure trove of opportunity!
