Avoid the temptation to stay in your pajamas all day—as comfortable as they are, they won’t look professional for your Zoom call, and could give the impression that what you have to say isn't important or that you do not value other people’s time.

Here is the top 5 most important things to do before you go live on Zoom.

  1. Get Dressed
  2. Do your hair & Makeup 
  3. Arrive early just like an in person meeting

Written by Tracey Watts Cirino

If you don't take the time to reflect on this and learn from your mistakes, it is going to show up again and again in an uglier way, in a different way until you actually learn the lesson. 😂😂😂😂

One of the biggest mistakes that people make when they’re planning and goal setting is not to take the time to learn from their mistakes. It takes a lot of courage, it takes tremendous heart. It takes you not bullshitting yourself. It takes you not lying to yourself and having the courage to dig deep enough to realize, you know what, this is my fault and I own it! 

If you need help getting clarity and focus and starting a practice of reflection. 

I have created the Beyond Common Goal-Setting Guidebook and Training to walk you through the step-by-step process.

Written by Tracey Watts Cirino

The biggest mistake I see business owners making when it comes to goal setting and planning is they don't really spend the time on reflection. 

Once you take the time to reflect on specific goals, you will gain clarity and focus into how to get there, and what each team member needs to do to help you achieve your company objectives.  And that brings us to the second key:  to make sure your entire team is energetic and that they are assisting you each day to implement your vision.

How a Coach, Accountability Person, and Masterminding helps you Achieve Extraordinary Results!

In this blog post, we will uncover why involving others in your goal setting can help you achieve your goals and objectives quicker and faster than you ever dreamed possible.  Once you have established some objectives, partnering up with an accountability person can be extremely helpful.

Sometimes when you're the boss and you're always holding other people accountable and checking in on everybody else, sometimes it just feels really good to have to check in with someone and have them check in on you and your progress. Then as the boss, you can say, oh, look, I did my homework, you can give me a star. Sometimes it's just a good thing to have that accountability person. You can take that accountability person situation a step further and hire a coach.

At Beyond Common, we're focused on helping you gain clarity and focus in your business and professional life, and one way to achieve that is to make sure you're not wasting time and energy on initiatives that don't produce results.  

Many of us are creatures of habit, and once habits are formed, they can become mundane or just something you do without knowing why, and since the beginning of the Pandemic, many new habits have become routine, including frequent Zoom calls and responding to emails and inquiries long past normal business hours.

5 Lessons Learned: Keys to Success Every Business Owner Needs To Know

5 Lessons Learned: Keys to Success Every Business Owner Needs To Know and some great resources and tools to use.

 Let's dive deep into the five lessons learned keys to success that every business owner needs to know.

I spent a lot of time journaling and doing reflection this past year, it's something I do all the time, but this past year it brought me so much joy and it was such a good stress relief.

One thing is for sure, we plan and God laughs.  But I still feel that planning is still such a good thing.  I'm so grateful that I did set goals. And I do plan because I know by having goals I was able to set things up in my life that really almost prepared me for this on unforeseen circumstances that we faced.

So I go back to the thing of we plan God laughs. It's funny to me because even if you plan and organize everything you never actually have control. 

I think it's really important that we understand that goal setting is just our wish list that has specific measurements attached to a date.

Why we are obsessed with improving our listening skills and why you should be too!

Written by Tracey Watts Cirino

When you’re with someone, are you genuinely interested in what they have to say?  When someone is speaking, are you really hearing what they are conveying, or are you thinking about what YOU are going to say next?  And, perhaps more importantly, if you are not carefully listening to someone, how can you truly help them or satisfy their needs?

The art of listening – and of truly being present in the moment – is a major theme in my recent book, Beyond Common: 12 Essentials for Success in Life and in the Workplace.  I felt that so many people didn’t understand that it’s a lifelong journey to listen, to be present, and to be a part of the conversation in a way that helps as many people as possible.

Written by Tracey Watts Cirino
Mindy Kaling was amazing, as usual. She explained  how having confidence has been something that she always had because she always put the work in. That was an interesting take from a Hollywood person that has accomplished so much and learned so much. I appreciated that because no matter what success someone has achieved there is usually a lot of hard work put in somewhere and that is not always what we see on our Instagram highlight reels. So I found that really refreshing to hear from such a major Hollywood Star!

Diamonds are formed under pressure,” Tracey explains, describing some of her early career setbacks as better than a “Harvard MBA.”  She also shared another important lesson – “Numbers don’t lie, but people do.”  The beauty industry is filled with creative and thoughtful individuals, but many don’t devote enough time on the financial aspects of the operation as an actual business.  

Tracey’s training systems provide important tools for businesses to focus on critical tasks that must be completed by team members.  “You just can’t assume people know the basics,” Tracey explains, “so we have learned to always focus first on this is what we do here.” “Sense is not common and there is no need to pretend that it is.”
