2015

What’s your 10 year plan?

No matter what your plan is, it involves words.

Content is king. In every industry, every business, and every country, the words you use have power. Words are behind the brand that builds a business. Words are connecting tissue in relationships and families and cultures.

When I talk with an entrepreneur or a speaker about monetizing their message, I start with what’s called a White board discovery session.
In the white board session which can be virtual or face-to-face, we talk about their strategic plan.

It’s not just about their book. It’s about their business. It’s about their brand. It’s about their image. And most of all, it’s about their impact.

Words are currency.

I said that in my Tedx talk and it’s still true today. In fact, a year later, I believe that no truth is more powerful. It does not matter whether you are rich or poor, whether you’re a CEO or a stay-at-home mom. Your words have the power to change lives.

Occasionally someone asks me, but what do I write about? I get requests all year long from people who want to write a book. Some of them are celebrities. Last week an NFL football player called and asked me the question above. I said, if you have to ask what to write about, you don’t need to be writing a book.

But the answer is, that words are currency and words change lives. When you write a book, it’s about a legacy. Sure, it will transform and monetize your business plan. But it’s much more than that.

I challenge you, in 2015 to think about your words as an investment. Invest in the lives of others, and watch the words you say to yourself as well. Words transform. How will you use yours?

  1. Tammy,
    This is a very good message. I have never thought about planning out that far in advance. However, I guess for bigger goals this timeline would most likely be needed.
    I guess that I need to get a bigger piece of paper!
    Thanks so much for prodding us into thinking about new aspects to life.

  2. I loved writing this post. Because I really believe in it. In fact I’m going to challenge myself to think hire in 2015 about how I can use words each and every day. One goal is to write a love letter a day to my children in 2015. It might seem hard but it’s really not.

    When you brush your teeth, take a moment to put a notepad in the bathroom and write a simple letter. Use your words. Invest in others.

  4. Everyday I think of what I say and do, it’s impact on others. Am I helping them in some way, or adding to their burden. How we respond to the words of others, and the words we use to do so is so very important.

  5. Words DO save lives! Your story, your testimony, your words may be the very thing that give someone else hope. Being transparent about your past and what you have overcome may help someone else see that there is still hope, that even if they are at bottom, they can only go up. Do not be ashamed of your story, because it was meant to be told. Thanks for your inspiration Tammy πŸ™‚
