Hello and Welcome to the October issue of the OkayNowWhat Newsletter!

October is the month we celebrate the holiday of Halloween.  In good fun, we purposely scare ourselves with ghosts, skeletons, frightening sounds of doors creaking, shrieking, or other noises that send shivers of fear down our spines.

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 three common hurdles that prevents people from moving forward with their dream of owning a 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.

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.  

If you are ready, so am I!  We can do this!  Click here to get started!

One of the challenges of being in your own business, especially as a solopreneur (working by yourself for yourself), is maintaining your presence with your prospects and customers. Expecting our prospects to remember us from a prior interaction is risky.  People are too busy and easily forget that they met someone, received an ad promoting a service (that they did not need at the time, but meant to file and save for when they MIGHT use that service in the future), or even that they had actually done business with you in the past! Therefore it is advisable to provide a stream of messaging to remain top of mind with people so that when they do need what you offer, you are top of mind for them.  One way to do that is through an email service that can send out timed emails or messages and track performance (how many were opened, if links were clicked, was it passed on to others, etc.).  One well-established service that provides that is Constant Contact.  They offer a free trial to see if it is the right tool for you to help you remain front and center in front of your customers, prospects, or targeted accounts.


Try it. You will find a treasure trove of opportunity!
