I have a few reasons to celebrate today.
First, and most importantly, the pumpkin spice latte is back!
Obviously that’s not most important, but it’s a simple pleasure I enjoy in the fall (not very often, because as tasty as it is, it’s actually a little too sweet for being a regular coffee I drink).
I talked a little about this in my rant post recently. Controlling your environment makes a huge difference in your day to day life. Whether it’s a pumpkin spice latte, the music you listen to while you work, or making sure you have a comfy place for your pet in your office… simple pleasures bring us joy.
Don’t discount these little things… they matter.
What else am I celebrating today?
Most importantly (and this is truly most important), things in my personal life are settling down, my son is feeling good, and everything is on an upward trajectory. Like most parents, when my kids are feeling good and life feels solid for them, my heart feels full. It creates space in my life to focus on everything else.
Which is why I spent most of Sunday working… and it was awesome.
I’m not one for preaching hustle or spending every waking hour working (simply because if that’s not in your DNA it’s going to backfire on you), but when I have the energy and feel inspired I trust that.
Which is why I decided to prepare a free training for you:
“7 Ways to Create, Promote, & Profit with Your Content”
(and yes, this will be a training, not just talking at you)
Profiting with your content is key, isn’t it?
It can feel like a time suck, like you’re not getting anywhere, and almost pointless if no one is reading and engaging (which is where promoting comes in).
The best content will do nothing for your business if people don’t know it’s there.
Add to that if nothing happens after people read, listen, or watch your content… and it feels like a waste of time.
I can absolutely tell you that content has been the BEST thing I’ve ever done for my business: podcasting, blog posts, email, video, live streaming… it ALL matters.
The webinar is this Thursday, August 30th at 11:00 am PST
There WILL be a replay, but you have to register.
… you’ll notice that I’m using Messenger to register for the webinar.
Look at these numbers:
You won’t get that with email (and yes, I see the irony in me sending this via email). This is why I’m going to the ManyChat even in Austin next month. I soooo believe in this marketing method (it’s conversational). Pair Messenger marketing with email and valuable content and you have a winning combination.
The magic of this is that ManyChat integrates with ConvertKit (my email provider, that I love). If you don’t use ConvertKit, you can use Zapier to integrate with your email service provider.
AND… I’ve got a special surprise for everyone who stays on the webinar until the end (I promise you it will be worth it).
On that note, it’s time to get to editing this week’s podcast!
