Sunflower Celebration: Day 8
Relections on the first week. My personal growth for this celebration is about my relationship with marketing and social media in my life coach business. I want to create a business I love to work in. Marketing hasn’t been my favorite. I thought I was a master marketer in my Scrapbook Store business, which hasn’t been the case now. Usually I spend hours and days agonizing over what I could write that is interesting or where I should post, or being afraid to hit the live button. My goal is to spend no more than three hours a week, one day a month and a weekend every quarter on all my marketing and to do it in a way that is fun, joyful and I look forward to every day.
What a change in just one week. Yesterday was a revelation. It was a Wednesday, I don’t have clients on Wednesday right now so I usually do some “client getting activities”. Blog posts, emails, networking with other coaches. I work all day and usually feel tired, drained and like I haven’t gotten anything done that mattered. This week was a delight. At 10:30 AM I have finished all my work for the day and didn’t know what to do with myself. I did dishes, gardened and then decided I needed a new hobby if I was going to have so much extra time in my week. Then I called my daughter, who is on vacation this week, and chatted for a full hour +. We haven’t done that in a long time. I can’t believe what a difference just asking myself how I can enjoy this task and make it a little more fun made. I can’t wait to see what happens in the next 92 days.
