Lessons Learned From Scooping Horse Poop

There are a few things I’ve learned about Connectivity from my adventures in horse poop scooping.

1. Scoop uphill. Going toward the uphill side will give me the best advantage and view of what I’m trying to scoop.

2. Have the right tool. There’s a special tool for darn near everything, and many for good reason. The multi-tined scoop rake is, well, the poop.

3. Make time. Any time we ensure we have plenty of time allotted to perform the task at hand is wise. To be rushed or harried serves no one, starting with the task. (if you’re in that much of a hurry, is it really in need of being done? And are you the best person for it?)

4. Be respectful of space. If there are horses around while you scoop, give them the space they want and need. if they want to approach you, let them on their own terms. Forced interactions are usually unfruitful for all.

Connectivity requires a purposeful mindset: you’re objective, willing and positive going into the endeavors you pursue. Keeping these three fundamentals in your mind will yield greater enjoyment, pleasure for all and success for all.

After all, you can only scoop on rake-full at a time.

Connectivity Canon: available 8/24

Good news everyone!!

The Connectivity Canon (book) is gong to be available in a matter of days….I’m soooooo excited to have completed this project. Here are three reasons why.

  1. Primary reason I wrote the book as to get clear on what my endeavors would focus on: Connectivity. Connectivity = creating and developing relationship in purpose with a service mindset. I needed to make sure I could clearly articulate what Connectivity is, for others to easily understand.
  2. A second reason is to provide a clear path for those who want to be connectors, and for those who want to improve their connecting abilities. It’s a real, in-person concept I am compelled to bring to many lives.
  3. To clarify that Connectivity is the way forward, for all of us. When we connect,w e can change the world for the better, in better ways. Connecting isn’t networking, by the way (which is covered in the book).

If this book and idea appeals to you, you can pre-order now by calling the HQ at 515.450.7757 (daytime, PDT). It’ll be for sale on-line shortly.

Queen Lori Nails It

An article about Lori Greiner was an affirming one for me, this in particular:

Lori Greiner nails it.

“We should stop saying ‘women in business.’ I don’t think that women should think of themselves as ‘women in business’ or as a woman in whatever job she’s in. I think women should think of themselves as a person in business and remember that they’re equal to or better than anyone else.”

After almost 10 years of studying women in this capacity, I wholeheartedly shout YES!!! YES, LORI, YOU’RE RIGHT!!

When we remove gender from the equation of success, we focus on abilities – not reproductive systems. We focus on growth and learning and aptitude, not what chromosomes we have.

Now, I know there’s something special to any single affinity group. I get that and I’ve seen that. That’s not what we’re talking about here.

What I interpret her as stating in this article is that when we focus on our abilities, gender is irrelevant.
Connectors know that abilities are the key, not gender.

With all due respect, a quote by the Madeline Albright makes me cringe: don’t support everyone of the same make and model on the single and only premise that they are the same make and model. Isn’t that exclusionary? And do all women support female serial killers because they’re women too? That’s as ridiculous as to expect all men to support all other men.

Be who you are, connect with your skills and talents and abilities. Focus on making a difference with your brains, not your bod.

Never Doubt Your Reach

With a nod to Karen Joseph, I’m hear today to tell you:

Never Doubt Your Reach.

Your reach and influence and impact are immeasurably greater than any of us can feasibly see, ourselves.

Your actions, behaviors, communications, voice, body language – all of it = reach.

  • Who and how are you in front of other people? That’s reach.
  • When and why do you communicate with others? That’s reach.
  • What do you do to take care of relationships, offer support and be the resources for another person? That’s reach.

Your reach is the extension of You wherever you may or may not be, based on who you are and what you’ve already been part of.

So when someone asks you, “Who do you know…” know your reach is much farther than you think.

Connectors are reachers. They are progenitors of connectivity because they love to help and they know they can find a way.

Be a Connector.

Reach. Farther, more.

Not For Profit Doesn’t Mean No Profit

Profit: the monetary surplus left to a producer or employer after deducting wages, rent, cost of raw materials

Business structures, under the purview of the IRS:

All of these – and maybe a few more, are choices as to how an organization incorporates – how they conduct their business.

So why do so many people consider a Non Profit or Not For Profit as a “better” structure? Why do so many people believe that making a profit isn’t part of a Not for profit?

It is – absolutely!

Every entity of any structure has to make a profit; they need proceeds beyond operating expenses to drive progress. Every. Entity.

Profits fund campaigns, projects, grants, salaries, every single expense in businesses, in every business – no matter your structure.

Connectivity is being connected to the fact that your business endeavors must make money to survive. Those   for profit entities get the same respect as not for profits. The true differentiator here is this: what’s the impetus for where the organization is coming from, at its point of origin? What’s the vision and purpose of the founder? That’s what’s truly important, not your tax or business structure.

Every founder of every organization should strive to and want to make a profit – that’s how we develop, learn, grow and serve.

Sure, not for profits get some tax advantages; we also expect more of NFP’s, whether right or wrong. Other than that, there’s no difference. Every business must make money.

AND Every organization has money for what it wants to buy; aka – they will find a way to find the money for what they want. Period.

For those people who crutch out with, “oh – we don’t have any/much money for that – we’re a non profit”, I suggest: educate yourself. Get connected with what you’re doing, its true value and then promote it like you really want to make it happy and healthy.

There’s always a way to make money if you’ve got everything else clicking (which may just be the problem with the crutch-out thinkers).

After all, an anemic, under performing nonprofitable business – non-profits included – will die without money. And who would that serve?
