I don’t know about you, but between the news, social media, emails, texts, instant messages it seems like we never have time to unplug. It’s exhausting. I come home somedays not physically tired, but mentally exhausted. At the risk of revealing my age, what happen to the days when there would be long periods of time when people couldn’t reach you? When you literally could have several hours of peace and quite? Remember when, if you were not home or at your office, people had to leave you a message? Even longer ago, people would have to keep calling to get a hold of you.
A few weeks ago the news media, and social media, were all a buzz about the Yanni and Laurel debate. Who are these people? Well, Yanni is a Jazz musician, but that isn’t who we are talking about. Laurel was part of a comedy duo in the 1920’s and 1930’s, but we are not talking about him either. So, what was up with Yanni and Laurel and what was all the fuss about?
Last month’s blog was Social Media…We Love to Hate It. This month’s Blog relates to Social Media as well. It is a daily part of our lives anymore.
I apologize for being on hiatus from my blogs for so long. It wasn’t intentional. After the new year, it has been one thing after another. Working full-time, working on my business, spending time with my daughter and other obligations, the time just flies by. I can’t believe we are already in April.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours. I don’t know about you, but 2017 has just flown by. They seem to get faster with each passing year.
Last month I started my Life Lesson series on how to correlate doing what I have learned in life and where I can see it being applied in my own business as well as in others. So, lesson #1 was Be True to Yourself and to Your Business. In other words, when you created your business you had a plan for it, a look, a feel, etc. Don’t compromise that, unless you want to and for the reasons you want to change.
I know I have been away for a month, I needed to decide what I wanted to do with my Blog. I want it to have information that pertains to Marketing, but also I want to share lesson’s I have learned in life and then apply them to a businesses marketing plan. So…here is my first stab at it.
If you live in the Southwest United States, Arizona specifically, or have visited during the summer months, then you know about our Monsoons. They build and build all day long and sometimes nothing happens, but most times we get a huge dust storm, high winds, and rain if we are lucky.
I can’t believe we are half way through the year already. I never believed my grandparents when they said “don’t wish your life away it goes by fast.” It wasn’t until I had a child that I realized time does fly by and the older you get the faster it goes.
Last months Blog “April Shower’s to Water Your Marketing Garden” talked about gearing up for the kick off to the summer holiday’s looking at, or creating, a marketing budget for the new fiscal year. How did you do? Did you come up with a summer marketing campaign? Did you create a marketing budget for Fiscal Year 2017-2018?
