We have all of September, October, November and December to continue to build our businesses and to move forward. And we can use every minute we have.
Nearly 120 days to find and help other people achieve their goals and objectives.
Four months to shed a few pounds while introducing ourselves to more upbeat, fun, proactive people out there in marketing land.
For many of you, this is bad news since you have been leaning on and blaming the summer for the reason your business is slow. Others feel they owe it to themsevles to back-off during June, July, and August as a way to give their prospects some much deserved breathing room.
All I know is that nobody owes me a living and nobody owes you a living. What you do about your business is your business. But, please, do not think for a moment that your competition is going to take the next four months off. Because they aren’t.
Please do not misinterpret my suggestion. I am not inferring that you become an arrogant, manipulative, sleazy, fast-talking, replication of yesterday’s sales bag, or should I say “sleaze bag”. Quite the contrary.
I want you to leap out of bed for the next 120 mornings with the sole intention of brightening up somebody’s life. I once reminded you that a few choice words directed at the right person can indeed make an positive and uplifting impression.
So, what are you waiting for? Get out there and toss a few chosen words toward your customers, prospects, ex-clients and preferred suppliers.
The clock is ticking and it is already September.
The operative word this month is “FUN.”
Your mission statement is “ACTION.”
