Sheron Cardin's Input...: July 2009

I have been an interior designer for over 27 years and I have always taught my clients the principles I used while decorating their home so they may enjoy decorating too. The home staging trend in residential real estate is a great way to reach more people every day and what I enjoy the most is they are learning the basics of good design through staging. It is my dream for every person to know the joy and pride of living in a decorated home.

What Do I Do? "I Color Your World!". That's a better introduction, isn't it?

paint brushesPeople are often times put off when I introduce myself as an Interior Designer/artist/feng shui student/home staging instructor (not necessarily in that order). They actually take a step back especially here in the small town of Selma CA.

"I Color YOUR World" really says it all for me. Pleople want to know HOW?

Finding a simple and understandable one liner to identify ones profession is a thrill and what a lucky find and solution to a common problem when I came across the following article. Please pass it on...it could make introductions more enjoyable and colorful for all of us.

Please share us know what you come up with for yourself or any profession for that matter!

Double Your Income With an Unlimited Number of Highly-Qualified Prospects For Free

By: Raymond Aaron

The way to get an unlimited number of highly-qualified prospects for free anytime you wish as often as you wish for the rest of your working life ... is easy and it really is free and anyone can do it. You don't buy anything from me or anyone. You just change the wording of how you introduce yourself! Let me explain ...

The boring way to introduce yourself (which everyone now uses) goes like this: "I am an electrician". What is wrong with this? Firstly, it does not increase your business so why bother saying it. And, it has two errors in it:

1.The first error is that it uses the word "a" or "an" which means that you are just one of many -- indistinguishable and uninteresting.

2.The second error is that you state what you do so that there is no mystery, no excitement.

Here's how you create excitement and have people WANTING more details.

Introduce yourself using the following guidelines:

1. introduce yourself by saying WHAT THEY GET not WHAT YOU DO

2. introduce yourself by creating QUESTIONS not ANSWERS

3. introduce yourself by saying "you" in the sentence 4.introduce yourself by being BRIEF.

Here are some examples:

BAD ........... I am an electrician  GREAT ...... I check your shorts!

BAD ........... I am a professional speaker   GREAT ...... I double your income!

BAD ........... I am an interviewer    GREAT ...... I mail millionaires to your door!

BAD ........... I am a Feng Shui consultant   GREAT ...... I color your world!

BAD ........... I am a photographer   GREAT ...... I shoot you!

BAD ........... I am a therapist     GREAT ...... I get into your head!

BAD ........... I am a dietician     GREAT ...... I feed you healthy junk food!

Get the picture? Now, create one for yourself and send it to me by typing it in a comment to this article.

Do you have the courage to use this fascinating way to introduce yourself? Most people don't. I encourage you to develop a fascinating way to introduce yourself and then practice on family members until you are strong enough to do it in the world. Best of success. It works.
