Walking the Talk and The Journey Ahead

walk the walkWalking the talk can sometimes be very difficult to do.  As a marketing coach and consultant,  I’ve spent the past several years helping small business owners, entrepreneurs and solopreneurs  develop strategic and tactical marketing plans for their businesses.     It’s been both rewarding and challenging at the same time.

Some like Trish Funk from Finances with Funk and Zahn LaScott of Zahn’s Melange, have taken action and  are working towards growing their businesses into thriving entities.   Others have argued with me, taken no action or  been inconsistent and then concluded that digital marketing isn’t effective.  Through it all, I’ve gained incredible insight to the everyday challenges that real people face when they start to incorporate online marketing into their business.

Looking back,  I realize that I was so busy “helping others” that I ignored my own business.  All too often I was embarrassed when someone asked for my website and would make some passing comment about my website being the victim of  “cobblers child” syndrome.  Frankly, if I had the chance to relive the past two years I would have spent more time on me and less time trying to convince people that I could help them.

Truthfully, had I walked my talk, I wouldn’t have had to convince people.  Instead, the right people would have found me.

A few weeks back I had the amazing opportunity to take part in Working Strategies for Women, here in Redding, CA.  Tonight is the last night of the eight week program and I’m leaving the program with an expanded vision for  my business.  Why, because I took the time to focus on me and my business.  I literally spent just 15 minutes a day doing just one thing each day for my business.  What a concept, eh?  Yes, even a coach needs a coach sometimes.

Tonight I look forward to the next phase with optimism and excitement.  In fact, I’m so motivated that I’m taking on another challenge called the  Quick Start Challenge.  I expect the Quick Start Challenge to push me to new levels of consistency and allow me to truly help those who are ready to  hear my message.  Such a blessing this is.

I challenge you to make your life a masterpiece. I challenge you to join the ranks of those people who live what they teach, who walk their talk. ~ Tony Robbins
