Mia, Where Have You Been?

Hey! I know that most of you follow me on my Facebook business page or on Twitter, but I just wanted to send you an official update here.

I’m still home in Wisconsin running my two businesses and having a blast.

In my last post, I shared with you my experience in Orlando, FL at the Social Media Smartphone GPS Summit.

With all of the insight that I gained there from Sandi Krakowski, Gary Vaynerchuk and other Rocking business men and women, I started my second business: ForeignChic.com

Check out my Facebook page Here: Facebook

I have an Awesome community there! Beautiful women with Gorgeous style and Beautiful Hearts who Love Old Fashioned Elegance & Glamour. My dream community. : )

I’m becoming a Master at PPC ads on Facebook, which I love! I feel like a Facebook ads geek and the fact that you only pay when someone clicks on what you have, is amazing. How else could a 21 year old build a converting following of over 2,000 in under 16 weeks? Thank You Facebook!

I’m still giving business English / Business communications lessons. I just got off of the phone with a client who I’ll be preparing for an interview that he has coming up. Excited! That’s one of my favorite things to do.

I’m also learning Mandarin. : ) I’m learning to sing Mandarin songs, which I’m so excited about.

Well, now I want to know, What are You excited about? Post in the comments below, or on my Facebook page.

I’ll talk to you soon! : ) Hope your 2013 is off to a Super start! Keep pushing through. Imagine where you’ll be a year from now if you keep hitting it hard and going after your goal!

Love, Mia

An Easy Way to Promote Trust

By the way I post daily on my Facebook page, so be sure to tune in there. I post fresh stuff there everyday. Here’s the link to my page: Mia Salituro Business Communications.

Here is a video sharing a little trick about promoting trust. In the video I give 2 specific ways that you can use this tip to promote trust in your next presentation, pitch or even on your big job interview.

Here it is: 

How easy is that! Plus, personally I love the color blue.

Here’s a little article that I pulled up about the psychology around the color blue: The Psychology of Blue

Enjoy!

This blog has served me well and it’s time to move on to a site that can serve my clients and my business better.  You can count on fresh new content coming soon on my new domain. I’ll share the domain once it goes live. : )

Here’s some of the goodness that you’ll see on miasalituro.com

My first online product will be launching in late September – mid October. I’m designing an online video program for those who want to land a new job, one with a higher salary and one that they enjoy.

I’m using my experience working with ambitious professionals, my personal insights as a business owner, feedback from CEOs and combining all that into an easy, simple video series that will take you through what you need to do before and during the interview to stand out and receive that job offer.

I believe with all my heart that God put me here on this earth to effect millions of   people’s lives. I believe that I’m here to help you break down barriers and that it is my duty to seek out the information and wisdom that you need to know in order to make your wildest dreams come to life.

You’ve invested in me as well and I’m looking to multiply your investment like crazy. This is just the beginning. I can’t wait to show you what I have up my sleeve and what I have for you!

Greater things are still to be done here.  : )

HUUUGE Hug to you reading this!

Flirt on that Interview like it’s Your First Hot Date!

Do you want to know why you’re screwing up your first date, I mean interview?  OK, so the headline was created to catch your attention. It must have worked because you’re here. Let’s add some fun and spice to one of my favorite topics – Job Interviews.

There is one key interview preparation tool that many professionals overlook. Not only does this tool allow you to see whether or not the company really is a good fit for you; this tool also helps you to get to know about your new company even before the interview.

What is this hugely powerful overlooked tool?

- The company’s website

what’s so powerful about the company’s website? Let’s think of your interview as a first date, shall we? ; )


The company’s website is the key to their heart, only if (like in a relationships) you handle it with care. No manipulation! That will get your butt kicked, whether figuratively or literally, out the door.
OK, so ready to prepare for your 1st date? Let’s go! 
I’m going to write this as if you are a man preparing for a first date with a woman who is your dream woman. OK, so here we go, your first date with your dream woman: code for dream job. 


Let’s just start with this: If by browsing through your company’s dating profile (company website) you can tell in your heart that you are not a match made in heaven, then you’ll want to reconsider the 1st date. With that said, let’s get right into it.

Here are 3 things that you are going to look for on the company’s website and exactly how to use them to wow your interviewer.

What To Research: Home Page

What is the company’s image? Do you agree with their image? Does it turn you on or does it make you want to gag? It’s likely that the company will expect you to mesh with them and to some extent match up with the image they have created in some way. Do your images work together?

How to Use It:

What will you wear on the interview that will show that your image and the company’s image are complimentary? Furthermore, what attitude will you bring to the interview that will be complimentary to what the company has already created? How will you embody the characteristics that will fuel you to perform your respective role in the company with excellence unlike any that the company has seen before?

What To Research: About Us

In their About Us section how do they describe themselves? What do they like to be known for? What do they like to be referred to as?

A woman wants a man who backs up what she’s proud of. If a woman describes herself as honest she is proud of that quality and it is important for her to find a man who is also very honest. In other words, she wants to amp up the honesty in her life.

Likewise, if a company describe themselves as innovative, they want to amp up the innovation in their company.

How to Use It:

Seeing that innovation is something that the company values, you’ll want to highlight how you would like to amp up that innovation in their company. How will your unique skill set contribute to the amping up of their company’s increasingly innovative operations?

What to Research: Who they’re looking for

Knowing who your potential company is looking for will drastically increase your chances of receiving a job offer. In fact, if you’re smart, are the right fit, and you do your research before the interview; finding out who your future employer is looking for will practically guarantee that you receive a job offer.

Where do you find what they’re looking for?

  • Mission and Values
  • Letter from the CEO

These are all common places where the company often states directly who they’re looking for.

How easy is that!

Here’s an example from BASF.

How To Use It:

Now you know what to highlight on your interview. This is the perfect spot to find your What 3 words. In this case it would be 4 words. Asking yourself what 4 words do I want my interviewer to remember me by will give you clarity and allow you to make a powerful impression. You won’t be wondering what the interviewer thinks about you after the interview, you will know because you’ve intentionally set 4 words in mind and conveyed those 4 words throughout your interview.

If you go to the interview without visiting the company website, you go without doing your homework and it will show plain and simple. Studying and understanding the company through their website is an essential step in landing the job. It works for many professionals including my clients. In fact, heading to the company website has really given my clients confidence, ease and peace before, during and after the interview. Most importantly, they get the job!

Look for the 3 things above on the company website and use your knowledge of the company to impress the interviewer and land your perfect fit job.

Warning: If you stick with me you may start loving interviews. Think of it as a hot first date. Let’s do this!

Love, Mia Salituro

Want To Create A Better Process For Your Clients? Here’s a Tip.

Have you ever experienced this before?

You’re about to go up the escalator, possibly in a crowed subway, and there is a line in front of the escalator. It’s jam packed. If you follow the crowd and head up the escalator, you’re destined to be pushed slightly or maybe even accidentally touch someone’s butt.

I experienced this recently, not the touching someone’s butt part, but the crowded escalator scenario in general.

Interestingly enough, there was a staircase right next to the escalator. There were 2 people on the entire staircase and about 40 people on the escalator. I don’t remember exactly how long the escalator was, but it was filled to full capacity. Remember, there was also a line in addition to the full escalator.

So why weren’t people taking the stairs?

The simplest answer is, it was easier to take the escalator. People were willing to go out of their way to get to the escalator.

They preferred to wait in the long, crowded line due to the attraction and appeal of an easy ride once they hopped on board.

Side Note: I also have a suspicion that the 2 people who took the staircase may have taken it due to social pressure. Their internal dialogue may have looked something like this, ” I want to look like a no nonsense person who won’t wait in a silly line. That would be ridiculous to do when the staircase is wide open. I don’t want to feel ridiculous.”

Back on track: Do you see how you can use this experience for your business?

People will go out of their way to get easy.

The million dollar (potentially billion dollar) question here is: How can you make it easy for your clients?

I would give you some examples to start out with, but you know what, I want you to have a blank page to work with. I don’t want you to only get stuck into my ideas. I want you to embrace your own ideas.

So ask yourself, How can I make it easy for my clients?  

P.S. I’ll be helping business owners with just this. Now I’ll be using this story to explain the ‘Make It Easy’ concept to those that I work with. Imagine adding a new business model to your company that is not only easier for your clients, but easy for you too!

Get dreaming AND get DOING!

How can you make it easy for your clients? Go do it!

If you’d like to grow your business and attract more clients by making it easier for those that you serve, go take a look at my Get Your Genius Out There! page. Here you’ll find a description of my programs and packages.

If after reading through them, you feel that one of the programs may be right for you, please schedule a get acquainted call with me via email. On this call, I will answer any questions that you have about my programs. I will get to know more about you and your situation, so that we can see if I can help.

In the meantime, start making what you offer easier for your clients.

Next week, I’ll be sharing how myself and others are doing just that. Before I share these stories, I want you to be creative yourself and come up with ways that you can make it easy for those you serve.

This could change your business.

Your clients don’t want to take the stairs, they want the escalator baby!

This Is Freedom. Please Enjoy.

Far too many of us, when we think of success, think of success through someone else’s eyes. When we think of our future successful selves, we see our successful selves through someone else’s eyes. What will they see, what will they think, when they see me on TV?

Who are we trying to please anyway? I don’t want to please people, but I do want to help people. Sometimes on the route to helping people, I will displease people and I accept that.

I know what I want and I refuse to let others dictate what I want. I want to be as close to God’s vision of me as humanly possible. That’s the path I chose. That’s freedom. That’s beauty. That’s peace beyond any earthly measure.

Do you feel that too? I hope so and if not, you have something grand to look forward to. I promise you that. I promise that you have an everlasting joy waiting for you.

How do I know? Because I feel it. In fact, I feel it now as I write this. I’m writing this because I have a strong, deep, beyond me, feeling that you need this. Why else would I share my deep, intimate feelings with the entire world. I’m here for you, not me.

Don’t try squeezing yourself into the mold that the world pre-created for you. You fit perfectly into your calling from God. He knows every hair on your head. Every hair on your head fits perfectly into that mold, into that design.

If you feel that you are falling prey to a pre-determined design on your life, put yourself on check fast! Filling someone else’s shoes that you don’t even really want to fill, will not lead to fulfillment. Respect their wishes and care, but respect yourself and your God more.

Go after your meaning. Go after it with endurance. Go after it with confidence. Go after it with strength. Be persistent and hold onto your faith. You’ll need it. This is going to be a crazy, but curiously beautiful ride.

Let’s ride this journey together. Let’s share the real and the true. Be free, be you. Embrace your quirks. Embrace YOUR success.

Watch me rise. Let’s rise together. I’m here to support you.

Love, Mia Salituro
