Are You an Introvert, and What Does That Have to Do with Your Marketing?

I was talking with a client recently about putting herself out there more, marketing-wise, and she mentioned how that made her uncomfortable and mentioned that she’s shy and introverted. That got me thinking about how often these traits are often perceived to be the same thing – shy introvert, outgoing extrovert – when in fact they’re not. You can be shy, yet outgoing, or vice versa. I know an extrovert who has a hard time initiating a conversation, and I’m an introvert who talks to strangers. How you approach marketing can be influence by this, so it makes sense to take a closer look at how you operate. Introvert vs. Extrovert The distinction between introverts...

What Do You Do When You’re Not Feeling It

What Do You Do When You’re Not Feeling It

What do you do when you’re just not feeling it? Not feeling the business love… Not feeling like your mojo’s working… Not feeling like you know what you’re doing… Not feeling like you know how to keep going… Not feeling like you’ve got any originality left in you… What do you do?   You keep going anyway.   You keep going because you’re a trained professional and your business and clients need you. You keep going because your family is counting on you and you don’t want to let them down. You keep going because you’re on autopilot and you don’t know how to *not* keep going.   There’s a nuance to keeping going, though, that may be an advanced maneuver for...

The Secret Your Business Has Been Wanting to Tell You: You Have to Pay Attention to the Nuts & Bolts 

  The Nuts & Bolts of business. For those of you who may not be wired to pay attention to cash flow, or marketing calendars, or sales conversations, saying you have to pay attention to your business’ bottom line is like telling you you have to start liking cod liver oil. It just ain’t gunna happen. Or is it?   What does it mean to pay attention to your business’ nuts-and-bolts-bottom-line reality? There’s a long list of things you might consider paying attention to; at its most basic level, though, it means a few things: You need to know who your customers are. The people you *really* want to work with, not just anyone who passes by. It makes sense to know how...

Catching Up to Who You Are

Catching Up to Who You Are 

There’s a strange thing that happens as you get older. Your mind has a way of clinging to the past, a vision of yourself that’s out of date. A collage forms in the back of your mind: you in junior high, you when you got your first job, you when you got married, you climbing the career ladder. Your mind does a decent job of keeping pace as you grow up, yet sometimes you find yourself feeling out of sorts and catch yourself wondering who you really are, today.   For many of us, something happens unexpectedly that gives us a peek at our current selves: a reflection off the shop window’s glass, a comment made casually by a colleague about your skill or presence. In...

You, You Can Stay

You, You Can Stay

I heard a story on the This American Life podcast about a man waiting on a subway platform, and in the crowd was another man walking up to people, saying, “You’re In. You’re Out. You, you can stay. You — gotta go.” The story teller found himself secretly wanting to be picked to stay, which was odd since what the man was doing was completely arbitrary. I love this story because it reminds me of what we do to ourselves, how we consciously (or unconsciously) choose people in our lives. This applies to people in all areas of your life: friends and family, as well as clients and business associates. You can decide: You, you can stay. You, you gotta go.  ...

It’s Going to Be OK

Do you ever feel like where you’re headed doesn’t make sense? Or that you have something to convey, yet you’re having a hard time getting your point across? Or maybe you’re following the energy, going where it leads you, and it’s not going in a straight line and you find yourself thinking, what the hell…? My coach, friend and mentor, Andrea Lee, turned me on to a video some years ago that I think you’ll appreciate: Imagination Truth is, this election cycle has been hard for me; all the intense negativity and finger pointing have got me down. I put on my energetic seat belt, strapped myself in for the bumpy ride and have been...
