Those of you with a few years behind you may remember a show from a little over 20 years ago, hosted by Art Linkletter, titled Kids Say the Darndest Things.
And they do.
In a teacher conference, Michael Thompson and his wife received a glowing report on their 6-year-old son Liam. They decided to pay more attention to Liam’s philosophical tidbits.
Read on for some examples.
Here’s the story. It follows a theme similar to the old Art Linkletter show.
Michael Thompson relates several examples of his son’s beautifully stated Liam-isms.
I won’t complicate the story with more of my musing. I’ll just suggest that you take to heart the simple wisdom of Liam Thompson. Your own young son or daughter probably has some unique insights as well. It may unclutter a beautifully simple idea or several. Paying attention can be instructive.

Want to Do More Business?
Suppose you go to a networking event. You’re amazed to find all your ideal prospects waiting to talk with you.
Our Business Accelerator Platform gives you this kind of exposure to your market. These are the people you want to help!
We find your ideal client prospects and start conversations with them. Then we communicate your value. We get them to schedule appointments with you…all on autopilot. This can happen for you! Learn how here.
When you join Smart Money Network’s Business Accelerator Platform, we:
- Optimize your LinkedIn Profile Page so it better attracts people in your market.
(Hint: What painful issue do you resolve for your clients? If your LinkedIn profile describes how you make your clients’ lives better, it’s rare! Most describe the merchant’s qualifications and expertise. They say little about what he/she does to remove clients’ pain.)
- LinkedIn has 740 million members. We find the few thousand who match your ideal client profile. You define your best prospect for us. Then we go find them.
(Even if you can find these people by yourself, it will take hours away from your work with your current clients.)
- Invite about 100 of these best prospects every week to connect with you on LinkedIn.
- Send a welcome message to those who accept your invitation and connect.
(Typically 15% or more. Currently, over 25% of those I invite are connecting!)
- Deliver something of value to them from you, and then do it again!
- Begin a “drip campaign” of carefully timed messages, providing more value. These messages give…give… give…and then ask. No pitches!
All these messages come from you personally. We want and expect your input in developing them…unless you want us to just do it. You can follow the threads and adjust your messages as you see better ways to engage your prospects. We’re always ready to talk with you about improving your messaging.
See a “hot” prospect you want to engage with your unique message? Take over the exchange manually!
