Where we are free to talk about the hard, the fun, and the beautiful of our work week.
This week was a lot of fun because I’ve been building on my strengths. I’ve been doing the soft sell on my teleseminar How to Kick Butt at Work and Be Happy Too. It’s hard to find the balance between encouraging people to buy a good product and begging.
I want 10,000 people to sign up for this amazing teleseminar, but I know that won’t happen. It’s all about baby steps.
Each day is exciting, especially when someone new signs up. I know my marketing is working.
I do have to work on letting my upset feelings go on the days when nobody signs up
Finding the marketing balance.
I don’t want people to drop from my newsletter or to stop following this blog because I keep talking about my teleseminar.
The best way to find this balance is to go with my gut, throw it out there and test. One person dropped off my newsletter list because they believed that I was sending out too many notices. I’m sending out a notice every few weeks, not every day. Jeez.
No one told me that creating a work happiness business would be easy. I think that if it was easy I would probably have given up. What’s the point without a challenge?
Relaxing with editing my book.
I’ve been guilty of rushing to get my work done. This week I’ve been applying my “Theme of the Week” for January. I’ve put on some good music and chipped away at each section.
The editing process has actually been enjoyable. A big step forward in my career/personal development.
After a cold snap my wife and I took our little boy and dog for a walk. I was in shorts and t-shirt. Texas has crazy January weather.
We mozied, walked, strolled, and ran throughout the two hours that we were outside. I didn’t want to go back home. It was just one of those “so lucky to be alive” type of days.
What about you?
What has been hard, fun and beautiful in your life? I’ll see you in the comment section.
