Let’s talk about a simple marketing plan

I’m thinking about changes to my marketing strategy.

Even with the most careful planning, we all tend to let life lead us around. I call it hurry disease…  we all get sidetracked and we let the world dictate what we are going to do and when we are going to do it, and we hurry to get all done.

Hurry and stress are just a fact of life… but something we need to be aware of and learn how to avoid and overcome.

Let’s talk about a simple marketing plan

First let’s talk about your success. No one but you is dedicated to your success. Your spouse wants you to be happy, but he or she is also up to his/her eyeballs in alligators; challenges, problems and issues to work on as well.

Your clients are more interested in being the hero in their own story – not your success! Your supervisor would like to see you succeed if it will benefit them in some way, however, they are more interested in their success than yours.

Ultimately, most people want other people to do well, but it’s a good idea that you OWN your success.

Second, you need to realize that the more you let life take over… just rolling along while you wait for success, the more time you are losing that you will never get back.

Simply put, the path to your success requires that you put the effort into it. You have to earn success, no one hands it to you.

  • SUCCESS doesn’t happen by accident, you have to work hard – every day.
  • SUCCESS is the result of a simple plan that you implement – every day.
  • SUCCESS is the result of that simple plan’s effort, preparation, and practice – every day.
