A few more smiles each day will transform your life.

It’s hard not to feel empowered when you’re smiling. You can’t not feel confident and prepared, focused and creative when you’re around people who are smiling back at you.

That’s the power of a smile.

It can change the course of an entire day for you. One kind word from someone you respect can brighten your outlook and enrich your ability to perform at a higher level.
It’s true for you. It’s true for the people you work with, go to church with, play sports with, and those you just happen to bump into from time to time.

A smile goes a long way.

For you and for them.

While you are strategizing about opportunities to drive new revenue and get better results from your marketing this year think about how you can create more smiles. While you are strategizing ways to develop better leaders and empower your workforce, don’t overlook the impact of team members who know how to smile.

It makes a big difference.

It’s better motivation than a big bonus. It’s more motivating then the fear of losing your job.
And it’s completely free. Free to do. Free to share. Free to return. It just requires a little bit of thoughtfulness.
Plan to smile more. Prepare to smile more.

Be deliberate about it.

Smile on.

About Dan

Since birth Dan Waldschmidt has been refusing to accept business as usual.

Sure, he had a lawn mowing business at 12, but he turned his into a money-making machine (though he opted not to tell his mom about his increased profits).

He ran track like plenty of other kids, but he pushed himself to break his high school’s mile record. He got the usual entry-level job right out of college, but then he changed the sales process, earned millions of dollars for the company, and became CEO by the time he was 25.

These days, Dan is a business strategist. A popular speaker. And an ultra-runner.

Dan and his team help companies all over the world arrive at business-changing breakthrough ideas by moving past outdated conventional wisdom, social peer pressure, and the selfish behaviors that stop them from being high performers.

The Wall Street Journal calls his blog, Edgy Conversations, one of the Top 7 sales blogs anywhere on the internet. He’s been profiled in Business Week, INC Magazine, Business Insider, and on dozens of radio programs.

Hundreds of his articles on unconventional business strategy have been published.

If you want to catch up with Dan, you’ll probably need to lace up some running shoes and hit the road. He’s the crazy dude running against traffic. In the meanwhile, read his blog, send him an email, ask him for help.
