The Best Advise I ever Got. by Crissy on October 24, 2008
Wendy Piersall from Sparkplugging is asking people what the best marketing advice was that they received when they first started their business.
I could type something out about starting a blog, participating in social networking or something similar….
Instead, I’m going to tell you something that goes beyond marketing.
When I first heard these words, I was shaken to my core. The light bulb went off and it was my Aha Moment.
“No one is going to hand you the life you want on a silver platter. You’re going to have to go out there and make it happen for yourself.”
From that moment on, whenever I think about a goal or a dream, whenever I think about something that I’d like in my life, I know it is up to me to make it happen.
Do I really want it? Do I want it enough to do whatever it takes to accomplish it?
Life takes action. if you sit around and wait for the perfect moment, you’ll never do anything or go anywhere.
if you’re waiting to promote your business because your website isn’t as perfect as you want it to be, well, sit around and wait forever, because it’s never going to be perfect…
If you’re waiting until after the holidays to send out a press release because you’re going to be really busy, well blah, blah, blah and more blah.
You can make excuses or you can make money, but you can’t make both.
If you want it, you CAN make it happen. You just gotta’ get up and off your butt.
Now go do it!!”
Yup, I agree!
