Tech Tools are not just fun, but important to helping businesses run better.  Business owners have ALWAYS been forced to adapt to new technology and today’s business owners are seeing new tools popping up quicker than we can even learn about the current ones.  The pace of new technology may create fear, anxiety or hesitation when it comes to THE WORK of deciding what the best gadget, app or website to use might be!

Well, if “technical issues” are ALWAYS going to be present in one’s business, why not make sure they are the issues of PROGRESS…issues of TRIAL and ERROR that precedes the ROI (return on investment) of adopting new technology tools?  By contrast, most “technical issues” businesses face are due to OLD equipment that isn’t working well or working at all anymore.  But I prefer the technical issues associated with ADOPTING new technologies.

I’m proud to recommend the following 4 tech tools that have helped me succeed in different areas of my business.  Perhaps these exact tools might help you as well OR maybe you’ll be a little more fearless to adopt the right tech tools for your business!

  1. smart goals public speakingLearn It Live-Learn It Live is a Virtual Classroom platform that I’ve used extensively since 2012.  I have run a variety of events on the platform, from one-off webinars to entire training programs.  My newest program on Learn it Live is my OOHs (Online Office Hours) program where once a month, public coaching (first come, first served) is available to live participants…I’m there to offer coaching first, but will always have content to share if there are no questions to answer.  So far we’ve covered Goal Setting and Behavioral Assessments.  On March 30th at 2:00 p.m., the topic will be “The Breakthrough Session” where I reveal my secrets for creating BREAKTHROUGHS for people inside of their initial Coaching Session.  Participant questions come first, but the content will be ready to be shared as well.  All sessions are recorded and accessible to all new registrants.  CLICK HERE to check out OOHs on Learn it Live!
  2. Zoom- This is an amazing conference call tool that allows me to connect with my prospects and clients virtually in a more personal way. The user interfce is simple so I can have video conferences calls without worrying about people having to tech tools Zoom Get A Klu Online Conference Roomdownload programs or large files. Both parties can also record the session and have access to it after.  There is screen sharing, phone access to supplement web access, and just super easy to use.  It doesn’t have the “classroom” tools that Learn it Live has and it is easier to log in to a session than Learn it Live.  So, I use it for PRIVATE sessions with individuals or groups…whereas Learn it Live is more for public consumption!  Go to zoom.us to check it out!  Or, make an appointment with me using the tool below and we can meet in my Zoom Online Conference Room!
  3. Schedule Once- Schedule Once is an online scheduling tool that connects directly to my calendar in real time.  This tool allows people to make appointments with me based on their own schedule without having to spend extra time emailing back and forth with me. It’s simple to use, you click on my scheduling link, choose your time zone and meting duration…then compare your schedule with my openings.  tech tools Get A Klu Schedule OnceAs soon as you make your appointment with me, it books directly into my calendar in real time and I am notified.  Plus, I set up reminders to go out automatically so if people need to reschedule, they are reminded well in advance.  This might be the most profitably tech adoption I have ever made for my business based on how much time I save and the increase in bookings I’ve gotten due to the ease of the tool and the impression it makes on my clients/prospects.

4. Mobiltivity- I do a lot of Speaking and Networking to promote my business and generate leads/prospects.  Mobiltivity is text-message based marketing tool that captures cell phone numbers and pushes out a “mobile web site” to uses.  Go ahead and text “klubeck” to 40691 and click the link you will get in the reply.

We’re about a week into?2016. Have you?set “Resolutions” that you know you’ll break in less than a month OR have you been setting GOALS that you’ll be pursuing and achieving throughout the year? ?I do?both, actually, but I PREFER goal setting! And I explain why in?my S.M.A.A.R.T. Goal Setting Webinar. It’s not JUST that Goals are better than Resolutions…but ALSO that S.M.A.A.R.T. Goals are better than Goals!

There is a lot of information “out there” about?S.M.A.R.T. Goals and I try to synthesize the best of it while adding my own take. ?For example, See the “A” and “R” in the image of the SMART acronym in this blog? ?Well, I believe that if it’s “attainable” it also automatically “realistic” and therefore the redundancy “wastes a letter”? So, my Goal Setting model accounts for this redundancy by ADDING an “A” and CHANGING what the “R” stands for…and that means goal-setting with my approach is actually S.M.A.A.R.T.er! ?But, you gotta check out my Webinar or get a private complimentary coaching session with me to learn my model!

During my S.M.A.A.R.T. Goal Setting Webinar, you will be:SMART public speaking

  • CHALLENGED to decide what you REALLY want in the coming year!
  • ENLIGHTENED on?the 5 Reasons That People Avoid Goal-Setting.
  • MOTIVATED AND LED?step-by-step?exactly how to set ?SMAART? goals
  • ACCOUNTABLE?to make sure you follow through and actually SET GOALS!
  • SUPPORTED with complimentary coaching to make sure you get started taking ACTION on your newly developed goals!

Check out my webinar?HERE for just $12 to set yourself up for success in 2016.

Full Description:?
Ivy League studies have routinely shown a correlation between goal-setting and “success” yet studies also show that only about 3% of our population ACTUALLY bothers to set goals. We ARE NOT talking about “hopes” “wishes” “dreams” or any figment of our imaginations that we have not TAKEN ACTION towards realizing!

resolutions public speakingWe are talking about “coach-able” GOALS that, at MINIMUM, meet the popular “S.M.A.R.T” criteria that many “goal setters” claim to be familiar with…or any criteria that includes Accountability (we’ll explain in the session).

The first thing this session will do, however, is BREAK DOWN the difficulties in setting goals. We’ll give FIVE ANSWERS to the critical question: Even knowing that it leads to success, why do most of us FAIL TO SET GOALS?

Next, this course will teach you Get A Klu’s S.M.A.A.R.T. criteria and Goal Setting Methodology! Don’t just set S.M.A.R.T goals, set S.M.A.A.R.T GOALS! Find out what is wrong with the “S.M.A.R.T.” goal-setting model and decide for yourself if Get A Klu’s S.M.A.A.R.T. goal-setting criteria and methodology is right for YOU!

Step by step, you will learn how to set Goals EXACTLY how we teach our Coaches and Clients…giving you a “that was half the battle” mentality that makes it impossible NOT to pursue the life you really want!

This is a recorded webinar which ?means you can watch/listen to it at any time! Everyone who watches the webinar is?eligible for priority scheduling for my?TWO Complimentary Coaching Sessions?to ensure you immediately put what you learn into action.

Remember, my S.M.A.A.R.T. Goal-Setting Webinar is?just $12 (That’s $1 per month if you break it down!). Check it out?HERE, and let me help you be well on your way to a very successful and prosperous new year!

I have never hosted a Group Coaching program. ?However, for the last couple years (for students in my Public Speaking Classes), I have hosted “Sunday Night Office Hours” in my Online Platform with?Learn it Live. ?It’s kinda like Group Coaching.

The format is REAL SIMPLE: ?Answer questions from participants and if there are no participants, cover content! ?Oh, and I record all the sessions so they can be viewed by any student that cannot attend “LIVE”…OH, and I also upload docs, audios, videos and powerpoints into the “Content Library” that is accessible by all participants too!

I have gotten such great feedback on the helpfulness of these sessions that I have decided to launch Get A Klu’s Group Coaching Platform for a broader audience! ?I don’t have ALL the details worked out yet, but here’s what I DO know…

Starting Friday January 29th, 2016 at 8:30 a.m.Group Coaching Online Office Hours Get A Klu and continuing monthly on the last Friday of every Month, I will host and record a “group” coaching session in a virtual classroom called Online Office Hours. Participants?can join the Monthly?sessions IN REAL TIME and get specific coaching questions answered! ?All the sessions will be recorded and will?stay ?accessible? in the classroom, so even if you can’t make the live session, you can review recordings 24/7 at your leisure. ?I will always have a topic that I will be covering if there are no live participants with questions.

Early adopters of the program will get special pricing of $97 for the first 3 months (you can sign up NOW on Learn it Live by clicking HERE). ?After 3 months, the price to remain in the program will convert to?a monthly fee as of yet undetermined (between $35-97/month)?depending on the success of the program). ?Current paying clients will be given a code to?access the sessions for FREE. ?Former students will get a discounted “student rate” and everyone else will enjoy a very affordable option to enrolling in Private Coaching with me.Group Coaching Online Office Hours Home Page

Who should join my group coaching program?

  • YOU WANT COACHING, but you are Busy! ?You don’t have time for weekly or even bi-weekly Private Sessions, but an online session once a month plus 24/7 access to recordings and the content library seems right for you!
  • YOU WANT COACHING, but you are on a Budget! ?$97 a month is easier on the wallet than my?current 60-minute Coaching rate of $375/hour?(as of 12-2015).
  • YOU AREN’T SURE IF YOU WANT COACHING! ?So, you?want to get to know me?and the Get A Klu?coaching style before committing to a larger program.
  • YOU WANT COMMUNITY! ?You love learning…ESPECIALLY learning with and from others. ?You enjoy “listening in” on other people getting their questions answered (like talk radio) and look forward to being a part of THIS community…a “KLU-mmunity” if you will!

The topic for January will be Goal-Setting (just in time to pick up those that have fallen off their Resolutions!). ?In February I will cover Behavioral Assessments…March tackles “Sales 101” in a bonus mid-month session and “Strategic Staffing” will be covered in the last Friday position. ?In April I will cover “Procrastination” and give my best tips for overcoming this widespread disease!
