Who’s worse than the grammar police? The imagination police.

You are an entrepreneur. A creative. An idea maker. So don’t give your power to the imagination police.

When you play in the world of imagination, you go to those places you don't normally allow yourself to go to, that's where all the cool ideas are created. And that’s how you also develop things that people never knew they needed or wanted.

Think about it. Fashion designers are creating fantasy worlds for us to live in with their imaginative clothing and out of this world marketing campaigns. Why can’t our businesses be that fantastical, experiential, and fun?

Well there’s no reason at all, if you’re willing to shut out the imagination police. They are everywhere! Your friend who poo poos your dreams and ambitions, saying things like: Oh yeah, right like that will ever happen for you.

A parent or guardian who ridicules you when you share your big ideas. And tells you to stop dreaming and to do something safe and practical with your career.

Even your significant other who gives you an eye roll when you share what you’ve been percolating. Those very people you love so much, can be, and oftentimes are the imagination police. Ignore them. I did and I still do.

TikTok / 3 Questions To Radically Increase Sales

I never focus on closing the deal. Instead I get pumped up about what I do by asking myself these three questions.

#1 - If I was being of service, right now, what would I do differently? When I remind myself about what I’m really up to (in my case it’s personal branding & business coaching) it helps get me out of the way so I can focus on being of service.

Question #2 - If I was having fun, what would that look like at this moment? Over and over this is my experience: I make more money when I’m having lots-of-fun.

Question #3 If I was perfecting my craft (instead of trying to be perfect) what would I experiment with? What would I change? Taking the pressure off myself to do it right gives me permission to get creative and play in the world of imagination. I always say success in business is 10% logic and 90% magic.

Running a business isn’t that different from working in a strip club, except there’s no corny DJs and you don’t wear your birthday suit to work. I quickly discovered this when I quit stripping in 2001, and began the ten year journey of co-creating a successful commercial real estate investment company with my father.

During my first month in the new business, we had a breakfast meeting with one of our tenants, Jim. Over fluffy pancakes & watered down coffee, we chatted about the goals for his multi-million dollar tire company. And I'll never forget Jim’s sales advice. It was so good I wondered if Jim had been a stripper!

“Erika,” He said. “I know you’re just starting out, but I want you to know, it ain’t hard to beat the competition. You just have to do a tiny bit more than everyone else.” This was exactly the mindset I had at the club!

As the years went on…Jim’s mantra stuck with me. Every time I didn’t feel like emailing or cold calling a prospective tenant, Jim’s voice rang in my ear, “Erika, it ain’t hard to beat the competition. You just have to do a tiny bit more than everyone else.” And I’d pick up that phone––make the call or send the email. It was those teeny tiny do one more actions that helped make our company a success.

Think about it. How many times have you quit on yourself because you didn’t feel like taking that one extra step. You didn’t want to put yourself out there one more time.

Whether you're a stripper, you sell tires, you're in real estate, or you do something else, we all need Jim's mantra: It ain’t hard to beat the competition. You just have to do a tiny bit more than everyone else.”
