    Unique Value Proposition - Quantum Physics of Beliefs

    in Self Help

    Unique Value Proposition


    Radio Talk on Saturday August 9th at 8 pm CDT.


    Your business has a value proposition. There is something that you do that your client’s perceive as valuable enough to choose you over all of your competitors. There’s a reason your client’s buy what you sell and there is a reason they buy from you.


    The reasons why people buy typically fall into three major buckets that, in sum, form the three rules of winning value propositions:



    Potential buyers have a need to what you are selling. It has to resonate with them.
    Potential buyers have to see why you stand out from the other available options. You have to differentiate.
    Potential buyers have to believe that you can deliver on your promises. You have to substantiate.


    It’s all about perception. 


    You need to find out which of your benefits are perceived to be most important to your prospects.

    However, it is the focus of his latest book on procurement’s changing value proposition in the context of a more global viewpoint both from a geographic and practical standpoint.


    Joining me today to talk about procurement’s “changing” value proposition is Dr. Robert Handfield.

    MORNING TALK WITH THE RED HAWK...MOANING MONDAY

    in Lifestyle

    Good morning, good morning, GOOD morning!!!!  Happy Monday morning to ya, welcome to the first day of June!!!  We've made it to the half way through the year, mark, and it feels great!!!  Six months going down, six more to go, and what have you done with your first six months. Well, me, I've conistently did my radio broadcast, here, since January 13, and just recentely started my video broadcast over at, http://www.ivlog.tv/user/redhawk, which is doing far more better than the radio version. The energy that is given AND received is so awesome, and my viewers have shown me that they do value my time, energy and everything else that they receive from the Hawkie, as they've actually planted monetary seeds into what I've been doing for the past week.  Nothing like being shown appreciation, by way of the almighty dollar, which brings me to coming back over here. This will probably be the last week here at blog, in the capacity that I've been serving, for the past, almost six months.  I'll probably reduce the show back down to a half hour, as I feel it's more beneficial to spend my time and energy, where I can see actual progress, in regards to my overall purpose.  With that being said, I'll start the show in a few, and look forward to seeing what this show has in store for all of us.

    GRACEbreak Radio | Be Prepared to Take Risk & Innovate

    in Business

    When you are prepared to imagine, innovate, and risk within your gift set you are no longer living within the set standard of average! ~ Tracy Worley


    Who are you inviting to the dance floor to innovate, collaborate, and have fun?


    We all have risk and either we embrace it or do everything in our power to avoid it. Imagine the playground where a group of children are jumping off the top of the monkey bars and then there are the few who stand at the edge pacing waiting for the school bell to ring so they do not have to jump.


    I want to encourage you to JUMP! Not in the sense of physical, mental, or spiritual harm but to really jump back into a childlike state and use your imagination, create, and innovate right where you stand. Ken Robinson states the risk of imagination eloquently, be prepared to be wrong. When you are prepared to risk, be wrong, and basically stand there looking like an idiot you are onto something!


    The risk takers are the ones you watch rise to the next level, the risk takers are the ones who are creating original ideas. 



    Reflection
    Self-Assesment
    What You Learned
    Expectations | Client & Team
    Leading Creativity and Value


    "To create sustained innovation excellence..it is necessary to create innovation platforms and netowkrs of individuals within them where the selected innovative individuals can share with each other, be lead, and GROW." ~ Davila, Epstein, Shelton


    You are meant to have a life and career of significance so embrace your natural gifts, talents, wisdom, and knowledge to create original ideas.


    Look UP & OUT!
