The mindset secret for super success

In today’s podcast Delissa shares some of her life experience and business wisdom with Michael. The conversation naturally centres on film but also ranges across many other topics. Have you ever wondered what sets the super successful apart from those who are “merely” successful?

In her opinion, it comes down to mindset, and it’s not just about work. Listen in to find out more.

Applying film making to business

She gives us the inside track on all things dating, from online sites to agencies, TV shows and her upcoming book. She also talks in more depth about using video in marketing, how companies can get it wrong, and more importantly, some tips on getting it right.

If you’ve been thinking of adding video to your website, this is an episode not to miss. And if you haven’t yet thought about it, then maybe listening to Delissa will be just the inspiration you need.

There is no doubt that in today’s competitive online business world, we all need to find a way to attract and engage our clients. A website page with powerful video can provide interest, information and entertainment, all rolled into one. This encourages a visitor to stay on the page longer. By entertaining while we inform they are more likely to click through to buy. If your film is doing the job right it can add significant revenue. 

Dating & Entertainment

Delissa has gone from journalism to documentary TV and film-making to producing. She is now working on writing scripts for the entertainment industry and completing her book about dating for mature women. She talks about pitching ideas to production companies, and books to agents. The pitching process differs depending on what you are pitching and who to, but it is something that all entrepreneurs will be familiar with in one way or another. Delissa has her own approach to managing the process. We can all learn to focus on our strengths.
