Make Eye Contact Part 1

April 18, 2019 by Mitch Taylor
"Make eye contact to ensure that you make a real connection with each member of your audience, especially if it’s an audience of one. " ~Mitch Think back to the first person you dated.  What was that like? That newness and feeling of “liking” someone…the wanting to spend more time with them and sometimes, if you were really falling in love, wanting to spend every waking second with them.  How did that happen? Chances are, at some poin... [read more]

How Are You Being Fed Part 1

April 16, 2019 by Mitch Taylor
How are you being fed? Now, when I say, How are you being fed? I'm not talking about, you know, breakfast, lunch and dinner. That's not what we're talking about here. We're talking about how are you being fed from the people, the places and the things that are around you? Do you surround yourself with people that say, Yes, I can do this?  Or do you surround yourself with people or influences that say, No, or bring negativity into your life. We've all had different upbringings in our life.  In fact some people thi... [read more]

4 Lessons Learned 937pm Tuesday Night Part 3

April 11, 2019 by Mitch Taylor
September 15th this year I found out through Facebook from my former college girlfriend Allison that Dan Priestly had died of cancer.  I wished I had known he was sick when I was in Maine just a few weeks prior. I wished I had dedicated part of my book to him.  Dan and Jocelynn Priestly gave me my very first sales job ever. Certainly without them I wouldn’t be who I am today. I learned so much from Dan and I hope to pass these lessons on to you here.

4 Lessons Learned 937pm Tuesday Night Part 2

April 4, 2019 by Mitch Taylor
Dan was wiry man with sandy blond hair and pretty much ALWAYS had a cigarette to his lips. Jocelynn was a brunette woman who was always done up with make up and 90s hair. I introduced myself and learned that the station wasn’t even on air yet but they were testing.  Dan encouraged me to fill out an application (for what position I have no idea but I was filling out a radio station application….I’m ONE STEP closer to my goal!!!) and said they’d be in touch.   I kept going back to that radio station, popping in every week or so just to see how thi...

Being A Chameleon

April 2, 2019 by Mitch Taylor
This week's article is about being a chameleon.  Now, before you think I am talking about something fake, I'm not.  I'm talking about having the ability to adapt to your surroundings...changing your colors in order to fit your situation. I had a situation with a bride and groom in a sales call recently that reminded me of this.  We sat down and we talked about their day.   Literally within the first three minutes of our conversation the bride dropped a couple expletives.  Now some people may get offended by that but in my head I felt "that's okay".  Why?  Because it showed she felt comfortable with me and it kind of brok...

4 Lesson Reflection 937pm Tuesday Night Part 1

March 28, 2019 by Mitch Taylor
9:37pm Tuesday night.  My phone rings with a call from the 207 area code, my home state of Maine.  I of course answer it, fearing the worse from maybe news of my Grandmother’s passing or worse.  I answer the phone. “Hello” “Mitch…this is Jocelynn Priestly.” 1993 was the year and I was about to start the pilot program to be one of the first to earn an Associates Degree of Science from New England School Of Broadcasting (now Communications).  It was a wild year…I was working at the campus radio station with my college girlfriend Allison Ba...

Solving Problems Is Priceless Part 2

March 26, 2019 by Mitch Taylor
This is Part 2 of our article Solving Problems Is Priceless, exclusively here at MobileBeat.com.   Last week we talked about that money wasn’t the cure to your problems, but yet setting good habits is.  It’s important that you find ways to tackle and improve on existing challenges that you have. For me, a challenge I had was working out of one bank account entirely for my business.  Maybe you’ve been there and maybe you’re still there. When I first read the book “Profit First”, it changed all that for me by outlining a simple way to apply mone... [read more]

What’s Your IQ Part 3

March 21, 2019 by Mitch Taylor
This week we continue with “What’s Your IQ?, Part 3”.  Reinforce your timeline creation and discuss one aspect of the night such as their cake cutting ceremony.  You might say “Before we introduce that moment we will behind the scenes ensure that your cake knife, plate, server, napkin, photographer and parents are in the room and all where they should be before we ever announce it.  Then we’ll also ensure that whatever is happening next after that moment is ready so there’s a smooth transition from one moment to the next, allowing your guests to feel more involved and informed of what is...

Solving Problems Is Priceless Part 1

March 19, 2019 by Mitch Taylor
Don't worry about money - solving problems is priceless. Recently I read a book called The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A F*ck - by Mark Manson.  While the title certainly is controversial, it does provide some great insight into how to truly get happy about your life. Happiness comes for many people by solving problems.   This absolutely relates to our industry.  What makes you happy? Many business owners (present company included) think “Gosh...if only I had maybe a little more money, all my business problems would be solved, and I’d be happy.”  Yeah... [read more]
