I just got back from a family trip to Philadelphia. Soon after I got off the plane I was faced with soft pretzels. They are everywhere in Philadelphia - and I did not hesitate! The trip was a great time (my Sister's daughter's bat mitzvah!) and I came away refreshed and ready to make it through the rest of Winter in Portland. Why am I telling you this? It's part of what
talks about in the book mentioned above - sprinkling in details about your life when you reach out to customers and clients (see Lesson 4:
Humanize Your Interactions
). Making your interactions more human is a key factor in his success and you experience it in every newsletter he sends.
I've been enjoying this Spring - I've picked up a couple new clients and continue to work with many I've been with for years.
I'm so grateful to these and other companies who trust me with their newsletters. It's also been interesting to me to see how businesses change over time -
I want to mention that the main tool I use - and how you're reading this newsletter - via Constant Contact - is having a
50% off of 2 months sale
- which will end at midnight 3.16.18. You can always start with a
2-month free trial
, too. I have all sorts of support for you if you'd like to get started down this path.
Sometimes it makes sense to start something before you think you're ready. For instance, I wish I'd bought Michael's book 8 years ago when I started my business - in 8 years you might wish you'd started a newsletter today :) This is one of those instances where you don't want to put off until tomorrow something you can start today :)
Here's to your success!
