Monetize Your Strengths—This phase is often one of the most exciting, especially for entrepreneurs, small business owners, and executive teams looking to use their strengths in the workplace. Living richer means turning your strengths into money in some way. Ask yourself: How can I hone my marketing message, get more leads, and grow my client base, so I can make more money?
A strengths-based marketing and sales approach can transform a business from surviving to thriving. I’ve seen it happen. I’ve received numerous phone calls and emails from clients celebrating a major sale, new position, promotion, or small business success after tailoring their marketing strategies and sales techniques to align with their top strengths.

A strengths-based marketing approach gives you a way to communicate why your special blend of strengths makes you the best person for the job.
Strengthen Your Customers—A strong business is based on loyal customer relationships. These relationships increase referrals via positive word-of-mouth advertising and glowing testimonials. Securing customers depends on making authentic, natural connections using your signature strengths.
Emotionally engaged customers pay 67 percent more per year for the service they purchase from you because they feel confidence, pride, and passion.
