Perfectly Imperfect

I read a great phrase the other day: “Perfect is the enemy of done.” Truer a word was never spoken. My husband Tim, who is a writer, likes to say, “Don’t get it right, get it written.” But it is so tempting to fiddle. You know what I mean. Endless tweaking and futzing with your […]

Guys, plain and simple, you need to be using video in your marketing. This is a world where people need to know, like, and then trust you in order to hire you.  The best way to achieve that is meeting and talking to people in person.  But the SECOND best way to do that is […]

My To “Do” List

DO IT Ideas without implementation are just thoughts. Once you have your plan, get moving. It is in the doing that you learn, grow, and succeed (not the sitting around thinking about it!).

I’m amazed at how many business owners miss this simple way of marketing their services. It’s what I would call prime marketing real estate. And it’s completely free. What is it?

Take Time for 10

Are you the kind of person that walks into your office (or work area), and immediately gets “hooked” looking at the pile of emails in your in box, or feels compelled to take care of that blinking light on your phone? Boy, do I relate.  That used to be me. I’d get immediately pulled into […]
