Another new year has begun and with the start of a new year comes a fresh, clean slate. There’s something amazing about closing one chapter and beginning a new that allows us to put an end to anything that’s not working for us and create a better, healthier lifestyle.
It’s easy to get hyped up about changing your life at the start of the new year. It’s also easy to lose sight of those New Year goals as quickly as January flies by. If you have trouble sticking to your New Year’s resolutions, (or goals in general), keep these tips in mind.
New Year’s resolutions get a bum rap because many people lose steam as the months roll by. Stick to your resolutions this year by being smart about your approach.
Change is in the air as hot summer days at the beach turn to crisp autumn evening walks through pumpkin patches. Fall is nature’s finest reminder that the passage of time and change are the constants that we can depend on whether we want to or not
Change isn’t always a welcomed event, but it is certain to come. While we can use time and energy trying to avoid it while staying in our comfortable little bubbles, it’s just a waste of valuable stamina and potential. While scary and sometimes painful, change is how we grow and become our best selves! What would our world be like without the change of seasons? Think about how our surroundings evolve and thrive because of change!
Take some advice from nature and learn to embrace change in order to thrive.
“Growth is painful. Change is painful. But, nothing is as painful as staying stuck where you do not belong.”- Mandy Hale
Not everyone is a fan of networking. However, networking is essential to growth and success in both business and in life! Everyone has had someone who has opened a door for them. Without connections and mentors, we would all be out on our ear.
If you’re new to business networking, or it’s just not your thing, we have some effective skills for you. Before you know it, networking will become second nature:
Never give up the chance to get out there and network. You never know who you might meet!

Our mission at Ultra Marketing Consultants is to empower our team to become the best leaders they can possibly be. We do this by guiding and encouraging each person’s unique, individual strengths through mentorship and our proven leadership program.
We believe that everyone has the ability to make an impact, and everyone has the ability to lead. It is our differences and diverse abilities that create such a strong, well-rounded and talented company. While we encourage each team member to nurture their unique talents, there are a few qualities that we believe all leaders should have.
The best leaders are:
Learners. Leaders have an insatiable thirst for knowledge. True leadership means knowing that you can never know everything, so adopting a student mentality is key. It’s essential to learn and grow from personal mistakes as well as the mistakes of others. It’s important to be willing and eager to learn from those around you, no matter how educated you already are.
Empowering. Those with the ability to lead use their positions in a positive way. They affect positive change in the environment around them. Leadership isn’t about power or position, it’s about action and how one influences others. Great leaders have the ability to truly empower others and bring out the absolute best in them.
Authentic. Without trust and reliability, it’s impossible to be a good leader. No one wants to follow someone who puts on a front or puts themselves on a pedestal. Authenticity and the ability to relate is key when it comes to leadership.
Determined. Great leaders are motivated and determined to accomplish their goals. They don’t rely on external motivation; they are able to inspire and motivate themselves as well as others!
Entrepreneurial. Leaders have an entrepreneurial spirit! They are creative, adventurous and aren’t afraid to take risks. They are forward thinkers, inventors, creators, initiators and doers.
Resilient. One major thing that all leaders have in common is the ability to bounce back. The road to success is never a straight shot. It’s full of ups and downs and wins and losses. The journey can be exhausting, but those who possess great leadership skills always pull through.
With the right attitude, ethics and guidance, anyone can become a leader! Remember, it’s not about the title, it’s about action.

Sports: you know we love them! Why are we so obsessed with sports?! Besides the fun and excitement, we can’t help but to identify with the similarities between the routines and habits of athletes and the routines and characteristics of out team here at Ultra Marketing Consultants.
We’ve found that many of us have a background in sports, and those who don’t have adopted a similar mindset in order to find discipline and success throughout our schooling and career experience.
Here’s our advice on how to apply the rules of sports to life and win!
