Okay...We lost an hour of sleep on International Women's Day! Mercury Retrograde finally ended. We have a full moon. This Friday is Friday the 13th. And people are in a panic over you know what. What a start to a crazy month!
It's amazing on how much stuff that ends up in the "news" or "Facebook" can direct our lives. Think about it? Do you remember the thoughts or actions that you had based on any of the above (daylight savings, International Women's Day, Mercury Retrograde, new full moon or the news on the virus?)
Now there is some news that might help by warning us or educating us but please be responsible on what you add online. Yes to educating but please don't add chaos to the masses.
We have enough stuff in our lives that takes us off track we don't need to add to the stress! Let me remind you of the famous quote out there..."We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it."
This is a lesson for all of us. The time to focus on what's important, get educated and continue to enjoy your lifestyle biz.
Thank you all for taking the time to read my blog post. I appreciate your support!
Follow up. Why do so many women entrepreneurs hate those two words?
Is it that we forget? It is time management? Or is it the fear of rejection?
I believe it's a combination of all three!
If you don't have a system on how and when to follow up then most likely you are going to forget.
If you let time control you instead of using a planner or blocking specific time to do the follow up then you won't be doing it.
If you allow the gremlins aka...chatter of rejection to continue then you will never step outside your comfort zone and actually follow up.
Let me add that we are all guilty of this, even me. There are times that I battle all of the above.
Following up should be part of your DAILY marketing strategy.
But what if you don't have enough people to follow up with daily? Then you need to get out there and meet new people or follow up with your list you currently have.
Following up is about creating a habit that works for you and doing it consistently. I don't care if you use a CRM, a voice reminder or a piece of paper - just do it.
