Give a “Facelift” to Your Business

My neighbor is a nurse for a famous plastic surgeon in my area.

At dinner the other night, we were talking about facelifts—the procedure, the cost and the reasons WHY people hire the services of a plastic surgeon.

There are basically two reasons:

1. To repair skin damage due to accidents or disease (i.e., cancer, etc.).

2. To feel better about your appearance.

The cost?  It starts at $8,000.

Then I started thinking.  There are other ways to feel better—that cost a whole lot less than eight grand—especially when it comes to giving a facelift to your business!

Office Facelift – What do you see when you walk into your office?  Stacks of paperwork?  Sticky notes everywhere? Stuff on the floor?  (Are you smiling to yourself right now?)  Consider cleaning up your office.  Give it a new paint color.  Hang pictures that make you happy.  Buy yourself flowers every other week or so.

Auto Facelift – Does the interior of your car look like a trash can?  How about the outside?  Hire an auto detailer (around $150) to make it look like new. Buy yourself a book of carwash coupons (in advance) so you don’t have an excuse NOT to get your car washed on a regular basis.

Social Media Facelift – If you are into social media, consider changing your picture every few months.  Update your “About Me” bio!

Marketing Strategies Facelift – Is there a strategy that has worked for you in the past—or is working for you now—that you might be able to take another look at it and see if there is another marketing component you can add to it?  Like social media?  Adding at least 5 people to your email list? Or changing the wording on your free reports?

Brain Facelift – Have you read any great business books lately?  Inspirational books?  Going to yoga classes?  Meditation?  It all begins with getting rid of stinkin’ thinkin’ and looking at the positive things in your life.

As you can see, it doesn’t have to cost a ton of money to “feel better” about yourself!
