“I am an expert in my field but I needed someone to help me put into words what I am an expert in. I needed a target because even though I am the expert, I didn’t even know how to communicate what I am about! After working with Coach Donna Ward, she was able to help me to hone in on my target client, create a summary of what I offer and I am now able to coherently communicate what makes me different from my competitors! She made it so easy, just by having a conversation, asking me a few questions and fine tuning of words, everything became so clear! Thank you Donna, you have truly changed the way I communicate with others about my business! Tracy A. Dempsey, Open Invitation Catering/Heart Link Area Coordinator, Riverside, CA

    Two things I take from this post…
    – Being unique – to me that means not being afraid to be yourself – after all this will always guarantee you are different from anyone else in your marketplace.
    – Adding little things to grow. When England won the rugby world cup, their coach said it was all about doing all the little things better than the other teams did them, and that attention to detail would add up to big advantages.

    Thanks for the great reminders,
