Mālama pono means ‘take care of yourself’. When you put yourself first, your business and your life reflect that graciously with harmony and abundance. Here’s a reference list that can be helpful in clarifying ones priorities, personally and professionally:

 

What Does it Take: 

Perseverance and failure cannot coexist. When all is said and done, perseverance is the ultimate success insurance. Nothing can take its place. Living your life with ambition and drive is the key to creating success.

What Do You Want: 

Even though to some, this is pretty straight forward question, a few might still be pondering what direction that they’d like to go in. So, still not sure which career is right for you?   You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to pin-point after utilizing the Setting Career Goals questionnaire.

What Do You Have: 

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”
— Melody Beattie, best selling author and journalist 

What Are You Going To Do: 

Based on your priorities, what are the necessary tasks that you can do to achieve your goals?

Write a mission statement in 5 easy steps! The process outlined by Dr. Hansen is:

1.  Identify Past Successes
2.  Identify Core Values
3.  Identify Contributions
4.  Identify Goals
5.  Write Mission Statement

What Steps Are You Committed to Taking:

For myself personally, I start backwards from attaining my ultimate goal or desire and back track from that. It enables me to be more precise and thorough. Of course, you can also start from making a list from say 1 through 6 and use short immediate actions you can take. Complete these actions starting from one week, one month, three months, six months, one year and two-five years.

Whats Next: 

There are two ways of tracking your success: quantitatively and qualitatively. 

In order to achieve measurable results, analyzing your previous steps is an important process towards keeping innovation moving forward in your company. 

A big part of innovation is staying on top of market trends, understanding customer needs and wants and consistently looking to the future to grow the company.

Creating Online Synergy with Your Cleaning Business

The Web provides a means for you to deliver valuable services to your customers that enriches your customers’ lives and saves them time. In doing so, you will increase customer loyalty. The Internet is primarily a social medium. The most effective and profitable web sites are those that foster community among their visitors.

It is crucial to understand that on the Internet, the user is in complete control. Hard selling will not work, and will probably antagonize your prospects. Profitable web sites are information rich, resourceful and intelligently maintained. They post articles, answer questions and control the display of their website that is relevant to their target market. Web sites that are organized with plenty of internal links make their important pages only a click or two away. Effective sites write content in a clean and modern style that can be quickly scanned by the eye.

You can reduce the cost of repetitive questions and requests from your target audience by allowing them to access information about your business from your web site. In doing so, you can be assured that your target audience is receiving information about all the services that your business offers, such as incorporating a FAQ (frequently asked questions) page to your site. Your site should also enable communication between yourself and the potential/existing client. Ideally, you should offer your customers the choice of submitting their inquiry by more than one method, e.g. by online form, comments section and email message. As you deepen the relationship with your audience via online newsletters, raffles and other marketing campaigns, you’ll develop a precise flow or direction for your web sites main purpose.

Utilizing a web designer or performing the layout yourself does not need to take months and thousands of dollars. Typically, a good business plan for your website should list and adhere to your company’s main objective and follow through on that throughout the web. Some businesses only want to build an email list for their newsletter and other promotional advertisements. Others want to create an atmosphere similar to a show room. They want you to feel like they’re right there with you every step of the way. Just decide on your hierarchy of priorities. Branding yourself and your business online can be an extremely lucrative endeavor when practiced responsibly.

The Journey of Creating Abundance

I believe every woman knows what success and freedom means to them. It could be overseeing your business and ensuring it runs automatically whether you’re there or not; and having quality time with your family and friends. It could be taking vacations and buying a big house or having a great relationship with your spouse or partner.

My ultimate goal was financial security and having the luxury of being around for my boy’s fulltime. As a single parent, I felt a ton of pressure to “get it right”; like the perfect house, new clothes, cool school supplies, fun birthday parties and interesting weekend activities and having a decent car. That doesn’t even include all the necessary things like healthcare and paying for dental visits!

It was really hard financially before I started my own cleaning business. I remember taking the bus to the grocery store and carpooling to work. I missed them all day while they were at daycare with people that didn’t love them and play with them the way I did. It was hard not to see them all day, just so I could make rent and buy food.

That’s when I began to map out how I wanted things to be different. I knew I wanted to have my own cleaning company, I did it before, and I’ve known a lot of people that became quite wealthy. So, I quit my job as soon as I landed my first client from an ad I had put out. A friend at work literally gave me his old wagon when he bought an old Cadillac. I was really determined to do things my way and provide a better life for my children. Within a few weeks, my days were full, from 9 am to 2:30pm. I was happy and on my way to creating financial independence.

So, how does anyone create abundance? For me, it was when I took 100% responsibility for everything in my life, good or bad. I was in control of my thoughts and actions. I desired so much more in life for us, I knew I had to do it alone. I used my current situation as leverage and did everything different from then on. I took small steps and before long, I was a successful business owner with self-confidence and time to be with my children. Sometimes you have to be fierce and push through your fears and obstacles that come your way. Once I took action toward my dreams, opportunities just popped out of the woodwork, that’s when I knew I was on track. Take notice when you experience coincidences at every turn; that’s when you know that you’re doing the right thing.
