Praying, always, to remain humble

Praying, always, to remain humble.

As a small business owner, there is friction from the Marketing side of your (business) life. 

Marketing is how others learn how you can help them. And people who need help want an expert, if possible (it should always be possible).

So when you do things that elevate your craft to certain levels – when you achieve remarkable milestones and accomplishments –  Marketers must let others know.

It would be a disservice to keep credentials and brand identity strengths from becoming public knowledge.

This is why humility can seem like a foreign concept to people who run their own business.

You get this, right?

There are 55 remaining days for after-school hugs.

Began officially counting them down last Monday (2 months, or 60 days out).

A couple thousand hugs in the bank, so the reality of this coming to an end soon doesn’t produce anxiety.

August 16 will be our son’s last official pre-college night with us. That’s 159 days from today (March 10).

And that means ony 159 more mornings on my knees at the foot of his bed for three daily prayers.

Time waits for no one.

What Do You Mean You Don't Know?

Emotion trumps everything

Bicycling on Sanibel Island
Simple pleasures, like bicycling to breakfast and then biking back to the beach and leaning (parking) your bike against your cottage.

 

In an emotionally-perfect world, the path your loyal customers take with you would be a straight line going on forever.

Hear about your product.

Buy your product.

Use your product.

Transform their life.

Recommend to everyone.

Buy more of your product.

Repeat.

In reality, this journey is like a vacation tour with stops, experiences, and conversation along the way.

Often, there is a combination of delightful and unexpected surprises, as well as some detours, miscommunication, and frustration.

This Might Change Your Life

While today is this, it is also almost this

Brooklyn Academy of Music
Brooklyn Academy of Music hosted yesterday’s Apple announcements event.

 

While today is this (Disney retirement 4th anniversary), it is also almost this…

The 10th anniversary of incorporating Mid Life Celebration, LLC.

So yeah, January 1, 2009, i officially registered my small business and got a tax ID.

The first six years had no revenue.

Can you imagine?

No, seriously, can you imagine?

i was still at Disney Institute and was in the slow and steady “build an asset” phase with blogging, social media, and writing/publishing the first book.

PS. i know it can be weird trying to read stuff that happened 60 days ago, but much of the other media we consume is similarly produced – live, but recorded, and then aired later. That’s all this is.

Fear, quotes, and impossible goals

Apgar Village February snow
Record snowfall this Winter. It’s gone in the lower elevations. Higher elevations? Time will tell. Photo: Apgar Village, at the southern end of Lake McDonald.

 

Fear, quotes, and impossible goals.

Days away from this theme.

Who writes seven books about the same topic?

The topic is Disney’s time-tested business principles.

One topic.

Divided into seven sections for easier processing and reference.
