5 Strategies to Accelerate Your Business


There are specific strategies that can help any business stand out from their competition and overcome challenging situations. This information is vital to the success of entrepreneurs looking to accelerate their business growth. No matter your product or service, you can rely on these five strategies: 1 - Create a Compelling Elevator Pitch Being able to clearly articulate what it is that makes your business unique - and the benefits it offers potential customers - is a craft that takes practice. Businesses that master this skill attract customers like a magnet.


2- -Collaborate and Create Partnerships This is something that most people shy away from because we are in a society focused on competition. Every business has 10 or more ways they can partner with another, with no money down, no risk, and high return. 3 - Treat Everyone with Significance Showing up to support others will open up unexpected opportunities that result in a more abundant life...for you, and for those whose lives you touch.

4 - Have Strong Mentors and Coaches Surround yourself with individuals better than you in the areas where you want to grow. Mentors and coaches with experience and insights can help you avoid costly mistakes and maneuver through business with knowledge and power. 5 - Mastermind Your Goals or Challenges This is one of the key strategies from Napoleon Hill’s book, “Think and Grow Rich.” Bringing together a group of individuals focused on supporting each other with a structured mastermind process can transform a problem into a solution, in an instant.

Luckily for area businesses, Brevard County has the Business Acceleration Summit, a unique business incubator that brings together mentors of the highest caliber and business acumen. These mentors share their wisdom in a structured format that takes the guesswork out of implementing these strategies. Start-ups and seasoned business owners alike put into action these five strategies during this event. The moment you register as a VIP for the Summit, you’ll be provided a complimentary business assessment with an individual “Business Catalyst,” an expert who will help you accomplish your business goals. 

When you combine all five strategies, you can accelerate your business in record time, while avoiding many of the mistakes and missteps that destroy small business aspirations.

Recent research in The Effectiveness of Teamwork T r a i n i n g o n Te a m w o r k B e h a v i o r s a n d Te a m Performance by Desmond McEwan Geralyn R. Ruissen,Mark A. Eys, Bruno D. Zumbo,And Mark R. Beauchamp reported these general findings.

From road construction crews and professional soccer squads to political parties and special operations corps, teams have become a ubiquitous part of today’s world. Bringing a group of highlyskilled individuals together is not sufficient for teams to be effective. Rather, team members need to be able to work well together in order for the team to successfully achieve its purposes.


First…What is Teamwork?

What is commonly called teamwork has two basic functions. One is the responsibility and execution of tasks, the team technician role, the other is the responsibility and execution of collaboration and communication of the team member role. Combining these results in what we look at team performance. In the world of business nearly all work is done in teams. Ask anyone and they’ll tell you most of the teams they’ve been on are average or mediocre, or good but not great. However, some have experienced an extraordinary team –the kind that makes a lasting impact and sets the bar for what greatness looks and feels like. And sadly, many can tell you in detail about the toxic teams they were on where gossip, sabotage, and finger-pointing was the norm. They too made a lasting impact – a very negative one. In my roles within organizational change and leadership, I have had many opportunities to research, implement, and evaluate team performance. I do have several excellent recommendations on effective team development for success. But, lets say, you are given a team and you are assigned to be the TEAM Leader. In my experience this is often the case from classrooms to boardrooms.

Joyce White Nelson’s "People are our Greatest Asset"


If you want to create and maintain a high-performing team that delivers results, focus on the following eight steps and consider making them team agreements. Often the communication you

 You have been chosen to be a Team Leader! 
 Now What? start out with is what you will also end up with!


ProActive Strategies for Team Effectiveness Please read to the end. 
 There is a fun team building activity, using these proven eight strategies to kick start any team and set it up for success. 1. Trust your teammates unconditionally. On loyal teams, team members extend trust to one another without demanding that anyone prove their loyalty. They trust each other through the good times and the bad. Start by asking everyone on the team to address any lingering trust issues with other team members. 2. Assume positive intent. Always. Loyal team members give each other the benefit of the doubt. They check their own judgments and set aside their assumptions about each other’s motivations or intent. If one member can’t understand another member’s behavior, they talk with that person directly instead of making assumptions or gripping to someone else. 3. Talk WITH your teammates, not about them. Loyal team members discuss challenges directly. They don’t engage in gossip and instead choose to work out differences in a respectful and timely manner. Every member demonstrates loyalty to all the other team members. To start, ask your team to address issues directly with each other as they arise. 4. Care about your teammates’ success, and most of them will care about yours. Loyal team members take the time to support each other. They step in when there is a problem or challenge that someone can’t solve on their own. Each person makes personal sacrifices to help others and gives candid guidance to help a teammate learn and grow. Start by taking an interest in your teammates’ success. Ask questions about their concerns and be a good listener.

5. Put the team’s agenda ahead of your own, take a power pause to reflect. Loyal team members sacrifice resources and personal recognition to ensure the team can reach the most important goals. Everyone keeps his or her ego in check and focuses on a broader view of goals so the entire team can see how each part fits into the greater whole. Start by clarifying the shared goals with everyone on the team. 6. Encourage and hold your teammates accountable to do their best work and vice versa. Loyal team members challenge each other to reach shared goals. No one wants to let a teammate down, so they work harder and try more. Loyalists don’t spend energy watching their own backs, so they can take risks and reach higher. Start by asking your teammates to challenge and push you to reach new heights. 7. Discuss the toughest issues facing the team and listen to responses Loyal team members engage in rigorous debate. They discuss the toughest business and team issues by voicing and debating conflicting opinions. Start by bringing up potentially divisive issues and explain what you are doing and why. 8. Give your teammates feedback, and ask for it, consistently Loyal team members give direct feedback to each other. Everyone agrees to tell each other the tough messages so that everyone can correct mistakes and improve their performance. Start by asking your teammates how you can improve.


Your First Team Building Activity! Create a document of the 8 Proven and ProActive Strategies for Team Success. Ask each team member to rank order them according their own order of importance. Ask each team member to tell the team a reason why for their #1 and their #8 (no discussion, this is the teams first practice at active listening).

activity will be be effective and increase your team productivity! Have some fun, why not practice being a team before you actually have to function as a team. There is a method to what some refer to as the ‘madness’ of teamwork! We would love to hear about successful strategies or outcomes you have had either leading or being on teams.

Next… Say this,“If you could only choose 3 of the strategies, which would they be?” Put a chart on the wall or create an online chart wth 3 columns; 1, 2, 3 and then gather numbers under each column as reported by each team member.

Joyce White Nelson’s global network of People-First professionals has guided hundreds of top entrepreneurs, businesses, and organizations in building strategic outcomes. At JoyceVentures, our goal is to serve through a collaborative, processoriented approach that will exceed your expectations. We do this through systems analysis, assessment, observation, and open dialogue to provide essential qualitative and quantitative data for decision-making and strategic results. Contact us to Discover about how we may align with you.

Finally, Given the information you have collected, ask the team to come to a consensus on the top 3 Proven Strategies for Success by which they will commit to for the duration of the team project. If you work on a team—and nearly all of us do – why not start with these eight steps and create a loyal and effective team? I guarantee the time spent on this three-step team building Business Innovation Strategist


Transparency Expedites Trust!
 The first fully vetted business directory.

Who’s in the CLEAR.


Both the Business Acceleration Network and The CLEAR agree that collaboration is essential for businesses moving forward. Collaboration only works if built on transparency and trust. So how do you know who to trust? With the invention of the internet and social media, anyone and everyone can be a self-proclaimed expert if they just make their online profile look impressive. It’s difficult to tell if people are who they claim to be and can do what they claim to do. It’s even harder at a conference where energy is high and people are excited to do business together. While the “feel good”

piece is important, serious business requires solid decision-making. That’s where The CLEAR comes in. When everyone operates in transparency, establishing trust is easy. Trust starts as a conversation and becomes a relationship. Transparency expedites trust. Members of The CLEAR have Chosen to operate in transparency about their business history and agreed to be screened for frauds and scams. You can have peace of mind knowing who you’re getting involved with. Not everyone vetted may choose to be transparent with their report. To see who is in The Clear –

How to Stand Out by Bringing More Truth to Your Brand According to a consumer trust study conducted by Trinity Mirror, “58% of adults don’t trust a brand until they have seen ‘real world proof’ that it has kept its promises.” As we all know, you don’t need to look too hard for evidence of brands being UN-trustworthy. (Wall Street, Pharma, Oil -- we’re looking at you -- and that’s just naming a few). 
 In other words, over half of your potential clients assume

you don’t have their best interest at heart and can’t be trusted … until you prove to them otherwise.

purchase a product from a brand they deem to be authentic or express greater interest in buying from that brand in the future.”

Sounds daunting. But, for you, as a small business owner, there is a actually a real opportunity here to stand out in your industry.

What does it mean to be “authentic” in business?

P e r t h e C o h n & Wo l f e authentic brand study, “91% of consumers would reward a brand for its authenticity and 62% said they would either

Whether you are the face of you brand or if you lean more towards a corporate identity --- people always love to take a peek behind-the-scenes.

is the New Currency in Business

(For more tips, visit www.BlissedCommunicat and download the free “Brand Story Mastery” training to learn how to incorporate more vulnerability and authenticity into your messaging and curate a signature brand story that will help you stand out, be unforgettable, and magnetically draw in your soul-clients.)

Giving them an inside look brings more humanity to your brand and builds the know, like, and trust factor. (In other words, you start to feel like a friend instead of an evil money-hungry corporation.) This is especially true if you give them a real glimpse, meaning not your typical super-curated, edited, and polished content, but a raw and real, “this is a day in the life…” sort of experience.

Furthermore, if your company does make a mistake: Own it! As appropriate, make a public apology, come up with a plan on how to fix it, make right with consumers affected, etc. What not to do: Try to sweep it under the rug. There is no hiding on the internet these days! Instead, turn your blunders into golden opportunities to authentically shine.

Additionally, publicly share your “learning opportunities” (sometimes referred to as ‘failures’). When you come from a place of, “we tried this, it didn’t work, this is what we learned from it” -- it shows you aren’t hiding, you are willing to learn, and you openly share to help others -- all major truth-building qualities.

What inspired Dlyted? and, Why Keep Smiling? The morning of September 17, 2004 started like many other days for businessman and entrepreneur Barry Shore. At 55, Barry had just returned from a trip overseas with his 17year old son. Barry is the Founder and CEO of and is a successful serial

 “I was standing up in the morning, and in the evening, I was in the hospital paralyzed from my neck down,” says Barry. Barry was later diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS), a rare disorder in which the body's immune system attacks the nervous system. The disorder can be so devastating because it strikes without warning—and because there is no specific, singular cause known by doctors at this time. GBS affects

But if you saw or heard Barry speak today, you’d be able to tell he’s full of life and just as vibrant and driven as before being diagnosed with GBS.
 Barry credits prayer, therapy, and love—PTL as he calls it—and conscious leadership as the factors that have turned his setback into a positive outcome.

a strong, respected and recognized business brand but few professionals recognize the importance of

of what someone can expect when they interact with an organization; how they’ll feel, what they’ll get, and

maintaining the same when it comes

whether they’ll remain faithful and loyal. It’s the same for people.

A brand is a promise!

Your brand is what people think and say about you when you’re not around. It’s what they expect when in your presence or dealing with you in a negotiation. Yet, I don’t think we realize how much our brand is being affected by what we say and do in today’s digitally-connected world.

If you’re a professional in your field, an entrepreneur trying to make a name for yourself and your business, or the face of your organization, everything you post – or that’s posted about you – is impacting your personal brand. From your social media pages, to your blogs and any other places you appear, viewers and readers form more of their impressions of you from afar than from person-to-person interactions. Sure, some people are compensated for sharing their thoughts, beliefs and opinions, sometimes boldly and without filters. But they are the exception and their brand is reflective of that by their choosing; think talk show hosts, political or issue writers and bloggers. For the rest of us, sharing the same must be done with thoughtfulness towards how our words and images will be perceived by our employers, customers, colleagues, friends and family. Some of the “friends” I have on Facebook or whose Twitter and Instagram feeds I follow are either oblivious to the impact their

comments and images have on their personal brand or think they won’t be judged because of them. Some are questionable at best and cruel, hurtful or hateful at worst. I think about the employee who derides a coworker or competitor on their personal page, only to be confronted by management and either reprimanded or terminated. Or the teacher whose risqué photos from summer vacation in the Caribbean end up online and cost them their jobs. What about the person who takes a position on an issue and states that those who don’t espouse to their beliefs are less of a human? Personally, my opinion of them lessens with each rant and rave.

Always be a great brand! The Internet has provided a vast place for us to share information about ourselves, and helped us to connect with others in ways we never dreamed just a few years ago. It’s also exposed us to a broader audience and we don’t know who may be in that audience or how they’ll perceive us; how they’ll perceive our personal brand.

Keep this in mind as you go about your day: If what you said or did was the top headline in the daily news, would you be proud?

Limiting vs. Limitless Beliefs

Do you have limiting beliefs that are preventing you from reaching your goals? Do you find yourself doing the same old thing year after year, thinking that nothing will ever change for you? Is it possible to have faith in something that you believe in with all your heart, mind, and soul, and for that something to still be false?

In short, yes. Limiting beliefs are limiting facts and ideas that you choose to believe on faith alone. When you presume false ideas to be absolutely true, you force your mind to operate in a state of disillusionment.

Technique for Eliminating Your Limiting Beliefs: 1) Explore the less than desirable things that happen in your life.

Here is Your Homework:

In a quiet place with no distractions spend 5-10 minutes thinking about each of the questions below. Go through each layer of limiting beliefs (they will sound more like excuses), until you get to the core. At that point you can address the limiting beliefs and change your destructive patterns that have been holding you back.

2) Explore the feelings that you experience on a recurring basis. 
 3) Uncover when you first experienced these feelings.
 • What was the triggering event?
 • What beliefs about yourself and/or others did you internalize in the moment of your painful experience? 
 4) Acknowledge these destructive feelings and transition them to a positive by finding the solution they offer you. For example, instead of complaining about traffic use the time to listen to an audio book. Once you have mastered the techniques to discover your limiting beliefs, you can address them immediately. By breaking those patterns, it will finally be possible to reach the goals you said a person like you could never reach. I heard in the news about a woman who lifted a car to rescue her pinned child. Before that day she never thought she could lift a car, but at that moment she saw no other option. Sure her adrenaline was pumping, but she had no room in her mind to wonder if she could do it, she only knew that she had to do it. You are the director of your life’s story. If you want to change the story, you have to change your beliefs (and feelings) about the story. When you decide that something is important enough, you will overcome those limiting beliefs, but why wait until that moment? Address the beliefs that are holding you back from the promotion, solid relationship, or just general happiness today.

What are the recurring disappointments in your life?

What caused these disappointments?

What is it that you need to do to prevent them from happening again?

What kept you from doing it?

Though it may be uncomfortable, what will you do next time so that you have the opportunity to have a better outcome?

Are you holding onto any of these limiting beliefs?

Step back from the chaos, busy work, life’s challenges and look inside to see what it is you stand for. You might be surprised to find that what you thought to be true a few years ago does not apply in your life now. Open your heart and mind because you never know if you “change your beliefs, you can change your life”. Live Life, Bert Oliva

Sometimes, all you need is someone to remind you to get back on the path you want to reach your goals. Other times you just want to be heard or bounce some ideas with people who are on the same journey. If this is resonating with you join us weekly at the
