Here’s a Question

How does one get a point across clearly in 140 characters or 60 seconds?

I know it’s a challenge for me – I have a tendency to babble (especially when I’m excited or nervous) and when I type messages I tend to “talk” in proper, full sentences. That could stem from parochial school and the Sisters of St. Joseph! But using abbreviations for words sometimes drives me nuts – I don’t know what a person is trying to tell me!

Now some of those text lingos make sense and others… ILU = I Love You. What’s the matter with the standard 143?

  • CYA = See You. Wouldn’t CU make more sense?
  • Why would anyone even need to ask ASL? If you can’t figure out that Liz = female too bad, and I’m not going to tell you my age and location.
  • The one that really confused me and I needed serious translation: ROTFLUTS. HUH???? If you’re laughing that hard tears should be rolling down your cheeks, how in the blazes can you even see the key board/pad to even type those letters?

So, I’ve been trying to figure out how I could even write this idea with this lingo. The thing is – I don’t have the full “dictionary” so I’m really challenged. 🙂

So, AFAIK this challenge will W8 4 ADIP to figure out. I hope this gave you a C&G.

B4N!

Health & Business

There are times in an entrepreneur’s business life when you wonder WHY. Sometimes it seems even more of a tough question when that entrepreneur has a medical condition of some sort. You may feel even more pressure from your business. I can appreciate that feeling. Honest.

This is by no means a “pity party” – never the reason for my blogs. This is an opportunity to share with each other that:

  • You are not alone
  • There will be good days and not so swift days – for your business and your health
  • Your support system may not be the best for your business.

Many times an entrepreneur feels they are all alone – no one understands where they are going with their business dream. Sometimes the entrepreneur looses their dream, or it gets muddied. That’s normal no matter who the entrepreneur is – that’s business.

There will be times when your health may (try to) get the better of you and foul things up. I know this from experience. There will be days when all is right with the world – and you can take on anything/every thing that comes your way. Revel in those moments. In your life and in your business. Take full advantage of those times. When you’re clear-headed and strong those are the best times to make strong business decisions. Never make decisions when you’re tired and on a bad health day – it’s counterproductive.

Your support system for your health condition may not be the best cheering section for your business. Sometimes well-meaning family and friends will not understand what it is your want to do and why you want to do this. Your loved ones can either drag you down telling you (lovingly and because they truly care), you just can’t do this, it’s too much of a strain. Others may go in the opposite direction. Actually put too much strain on you. Thinking they are being supportive telling you that they plan to live/retire from your business – and soon. (I call this over supportive) This can put undue stress on an entrepreneur – leaving the feeling of succeed or else.

I do truly understand this. I have my days when I feel on top of the world – even when my medication makes me feel I have to sleep for a while – I wake up just fine and clear. But then I have my low days, when those comments of hurry up – I want to retire (well-meaning as they are) – puts stress on me and then I worry that I might have another seizure (causing a set back in my health). That doesn’t help the frustration any! But then I can/do work my way past those feelings. I have a couple of quotes that help me, maybe you can find help with them:

  •  To believe yourself brave is to be brave; it is the one only essential thing. ~ Mark Twain
  • Life must be lived and curiosity kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life. ~ Eleanor Roosevelt
  • Never allow a person to tell you no, who doesn’t have the power to say yes. ~ Eleanor Roosevelt
  • Just remember, if the world didn’t suck, we’d all fall off.  ~ Author Unknown

Find what helps you stay on your path. Don’t give up on getting through your health issues – whatever they may be – don’t give up on your entrepreneurial dreams.

Thank You!

Thank You!

That’s a phrase not said very often these days. Thank you to those who took advantage of my generous offer. If you weren’t able to do so at this time (maybe you were out of town?), thank you for being on my list and reading about the offer and wondering what I’ll offer next.

Even though my prices are back to their original levels, I always appreciate referrals! (who wouldn’t?) So, to thank you for any client acquisition who buys a package (5, 10 or 20 hours), I will send you a $10.00 VISA gift card!

As my company name implies – I assist you virtually meaning via the internet (and/or regular mail). I do not sit in your office and take up your space. So, you don’t pay me a salary and all that entails – there’s savings right there!

What I offer is a concierge type of service:

  • help you with your e-zine/newsletter
  • help you with your announcements (this one is an example)
  • help you with your appointments (making sure people are reminded to show up, or setting up for you to attend)
  • ordering corporate gifts for clients
  • help you with your travel arrangements
  • help you with reports – “branding” so all sections work well together

That is just a sample of what I can help you with.

Does Microsoft Office 2007 make you a tad confused? No worries on that front, that’s part of the FUN I have in my work – it does so much more.

So again, Thank You for being on my list. Please watch for more helpful hints to come your way. When I can be of service – contact me and we can discuss all the ways I (as a concierge) can help you grow your business!

As an Entrepreneur what does this do for ME?

TODAY is the last day of my exclusive offer. I’ve been telling you that I can save you TIME and MONEY, but I haven’t told you the HOW of my services!
