Why Mars Venus Coaching?
- Because you KNOW you’re supposed to be making a HUGE difference in the world, and instead you’re playing “small” or slaving away working for someone else. What do you need to do to start playing the bigger game you know you’re meant to?
- That you can’t seem to earn the sort of salary you think you deserve, or charge clients what you think you are worth, and therefore are barely scraping by.
- Because you are having difficulty getting and keeping clients. What could you do to attract and keep more clients?
- That YOU ARE YOUR BRAND, and not enough people have heard of YOU. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a brand name behind you. A brand name that people automatically knew, respected and that opened doors to new possibilities and clients?
- That your coaching certification hasn’t opened the doors you thought it would.
Then I have the SOLUTION for you. That is, if you qualify to become a part of my team.

4 Things that Successful Small Businesses Do Better than the Rest, The Global Dispatch,
4 Things that Successful Small Businesses Do Better than the Rest
There are many factors that determine whether a small business will succeed, such as hard work, smart leadership, sufficient cash flow, talented employees, and of course: a dose of good luck certainly helps.
photo/ public domain photos via pixabay
However, there’s obviously more to the story, because plenty of small businesses have the above-noted ingredients, but many of them won’t succeed out of the gate — and, in fact, the majority won’t make it to their fifth birthday.
What’s the secret that separates small businesses that thrive, from those that struggle — or disappear altogether? Well, first of all: it’s not a secret. Rather, it’s an awareness of the following axioms:
- Data drives smart decision-making — not guesswork.
The most successful small businesses are like the best Las Vegas sportsbooks: they don’t make decisions based on guesses, but rather on reliable data. And a big part of this data puzzle is market research. Not from superficial secondary sources, but from robust, customized surveys by leading market research firms like Communications For Research .
It goes without saying that every small business wants and needs to make money. What’s more, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with this. In fact, it’s a fundamental requirement. However, making money is not a vision. Why? Because if that happens, then businesses lose sight of what they’re about. Instead of providing solutions, they start chasing customers, opportunities, and basically any other possibility to make money. The most successful small businesses have a unifying, defining and aspirational vision: and they use it as their North Star to guide them forward.
- Talent is often more valuable than capital.
Lose a customer and revenues fall. Lose a key employee, and an entire company can fall! Small businesses go above and beyond — and not necessarily with financial incentives — to let their people know how important and valued they are, and to keep them engaged through good times and bad.
Last but certainly not least, many businesses — not just small ones — have an incredibly bad habit of treating their new customers with tender loving care, and ignoring their loyal, long-term customers. This is completely backwards. Yes, new customers need to be valued. But study after study shows that existing customers — not new ones —represent the most profit, either through repeat purchases or referrals. Small businesses that ignore their existing customers in favor of serving new ones usually do so at their peril.
The Bottom Line
Small business success isn’t easy, and the path certainly isn’t straightforward or meant for the faint of heart. However, those that thrive invariably embrace the wisdom described above — and now, so can you!

Marc Sparks is a Dallas entrepreneur who builds portfolio companies with founding entrepreneurs from his private equity firm. Marc met Lynne Sipiora over 15 years ago and together they took a small homeless shelter, The Samaritan Inn, in Collin County from a small run down house in McKinney, Texas, to a $3,000,000 annual operation that houses and feeds over 200 people every day. In addition to The Samaritan Inn, Marc and Lynne also built the first transitional living apartment complex in North Texas, opened a thriving thrift store, and fostered a $7,000,000 family shelter that is currently under construction.
Marc has a string of successful businesses he has built and has a special affinity for entrepreneurs. Lynne convinced Marc that there are also social service entrepreneurs who regularly have “out of the box” ideas; that when funded will create social success. The idea is to significantly reap social benefits within our community by funding grants and overseeing accountability from the nonprofit management.
Together Marc and Lynne created Spark Tank. Spark Tank is an innovative concept that asks social service executives with an entrepreneurial spirit to present their idea that will create a social success.
$5,000 paid for the construction of a kennel behind the shelter, so that homeless families did not need to give up their beloved pets to enter the program.
$5,000 covered the cost of children’s camps and lessons, so that they did not need to spend their summer in daycare.
$5,000 filled the tank of the company shuttle bus for one year, ensuring that clients without vehicles of their own, could get to work on a daily basis.
All interested applicants must apply online.
Each application will be carefully reviewed and three finalists will be chosen.
Applicants must be a 501c3 organization with a minimum of two years history.

Moxie’s Grill Bar
What Are People Saying About FundScrip?
I don’t have to really manage it – it runs itself. People order, they pay for the cards and then the cards come to the daycare. They’re at the daycare every day to pick up their kids anyway, so they take their cards home and away they go. Plus, parents aren’t asked to give money nor are they being asked to buy things that they’re not necessarily going to use. So it’s no extra cost to them… what they pay is what they get.
– Heidi Veeke, Little Lambs Daycare
You pay $100, you get $100 back [in value on the card at retail]; whereas with the other fundraisers, that isn’t necessarily the case. You don’t have to dish out any money; what you give is what you get back; it’s easy to order; it comes all prepared in individual envelopes. FundScrip does all the work.
– Lynda Huot, École Catholique Sacré-Coeur
You have a great team there and it is a pleasure (and a rarity these days!) to deal with competent, well-informed, courteous, businesslike, and just plain pleasant, people. I am well-served and am glad to let it be known. Keep up the good work.
– John Wevers, Islington United Church
Well as a fundraising director, this is the easiest of all my 5 fundraisers to do. I highly recommend FundScrip and have done so to some of the schools actually.
– Jocelyne Fournier-Trottier, Timmins Marlins Swim Team
This is Megan and I am the coordinator for the Tofield United Church. I would like to say how impressed we are with the FundScrip fundraising so far! We have never had a problem and everything is fast and on time. It’s so easy.

10 Personality Traits You Need to Start a Business
Traits for Success
Credit: Starting a Business Image via Shutterstock You already know you need a great business idea, a solid business plan and some startup cash to start a business. But, you also need to have a personality that’s suited to being an entrepreneur. Experts tell us the personality traits every entrepreneur needs to succeed.
Lots of Energy
Credit: Happy Workers Image via Shutterstock As a brand marketing and public relations consultant, Lisa Murray has worked with a number of serial entrepreneurs and says one quality they all have in common is their ability to always be on the go.
“Born entrepreneurs don’t know how to power down,” Murray, principal of Murray Whalen Communications, told BusinessNewsDaily. “They emit a constant hum of ideas, plans, strategies and high-octane energy.”
Credit: Sales team image via Shutterstock One of the key signs of a born entrepreneur is the salesmanship and power of persuasion they show very early on for their causes, said business coach and consultant Nancy Eberhardt.
“Whether it is a landscaping business at age 12, or selling magazines door-to-door to fund a school trip, they are persistent in telling you about it and pitching why you need it,” Eberhardt said. “They are almost fearless in who they will approach and present their idea, service or product to.”
Credit: Creativity image via Shutterstock As someone who works almost exclusively with entrepreneurs, Robin Samora, president of the business and PR consulting firm Let’s Make You Shine. said entrepreneurs all tend to have a unique way of fixing issues that may arise.
“They come up with novel ways to solve problems that others can’t even imagine,” Samora said. “Ideas flow and come naturally to them.”
Credit: Think Positive image via Shutterstock. Even in the worst situations, successful entrepreneurs always see the opportunity to glean something new, said Lili Balfour, founder of the investment banking firm Atelier Advisors.
“When their world is falling apart, they remain calm, knowing that there is a lesson to be learned.” Balfour said. “They are grateful for what has worked out and learn from what has not worked out.”
Thrives in uncertainty
Credit: Curious image via Shutterstock Especially when first starting out, executive coach Elene Cafasso said entrepreneurs are able to function without a lot of certainty.
“If you are someone who becomes paralyzed when there are too many moving pieces and too many contingencies, then owning your own business is not right for you,” Cafasso said.
Credit: Dreamstime.com Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, a research affiliate with Hogan Assessments. believes entrepreneurs have an opportunistic mindset and are always prepared to take advantage of every situation.
“They see opportunities where others don’t,” Chamorro-Premuzic said. “Few people are driven to pursue them.”
Learns from mistakes
Credit: Embarrassed man image via Shutterstock New York wedding expert Nadia Digilov said entrepreneurs all have a willingness to learn from their mistakes.
“Natural entrepreneurs analyze their behavior and are not afraid to admit that they have made a mistake,” Digilov said. “They attempt to correct negative behaviors more easily then non-natural entrepreneurs.”
Credit: Dreamstime The mind of an entrepreneur is always at work, said Richard Stiennon, chief research analyst and founder of analyst firm IT-Harvest.
“He or she cannot turn off the flow of ideas,” Stiennon said. “Every problem is an opportunity to build a business to solve it.”
Credit: Dreamstime Business consultant Paul O’Leary believes born entrepreneurs have a natural gift for gab.
“They are assertive, direct and to-the-point with a sense of urgency,” O’Leary said.
Credit: Dreamstime.com Hope Katz Gibbs, founder and president of Inkandescent Public Relations, said that as an entrepreneur herself, she believes those who are born with the characteristics needed to run their own business all are willing to get back up after being knocked down.
“Our ideas aren’t always successful, but the thing that differentiates us is that we don’t give up — or give in,” Katz Gibbs said. “We just learn from what didn’t work, and what did, and start again.” Ultimately, she said, entrepreneurs are the last ones standing.
