Putting Faces to Names

When I got back to Melbourne after a year away, it was SO fun to finally meet the man producing all the SolutionBox products. And its quite a coincidence my assistant chose a production house 5 minutes bike ride from my house! See the pix here:

2. FEATURE: Who Are You Starbucking With?

Recently I had the great pleasure of connecting with Suzanne Falter-Barnes of

We sat in a Starbucks in Union Square, Manhattan and let the ideas fly!

It was pretty clear she has created some wonderful tools that will be very useful to MentorMonthly™ subscribers, and shes pretty excited to bring our resources to her own loyal subscribers. Suzanne is a really fun, motivated lady who is REALLY making an impact on coaches, authors and speakers.

Coffee shops provide a great relaxed environment for conversations ranging from hot gossip to multi-million dollar deals and a good coach can maximize this. Over steaming lattes you can bounce ideas off one another and get useful feedback from your guest as well as gaining potential clients.

Who Should You Be Starbucking With?

You never know where your ideal client or a great ideas will come from. We all know 'people who know people' - adult educators, managers of gyms or clubs, health care professionals and sports coaches, to name but a few, have daily contact with potential ideal clients.

Think about your ideal clients. Who else has contact with them? If your ideal clients are writers, do you know any agents, café owners, or editors? If your ideal clients are dentists can you see any hygienists, dental suppliers or orthodontists? Who else courts the same type of clients and what can you do together?

Ideas are flying

What ideas could you come up with together? Swapping business cards and brochures at your place of business? Promoting his e-course while he promotes your e-book in your newsletters. Doing a joint seminar. Putting your tips in her monthly newsletter for her clients. Writing a review for their book at Amazon. Partnering together for a teleclass. Inspire one another.


Worth the price of a cup of java I think so!
