A man that lives in our community has won the hearts and minds of every dog and its owner. He has set up an area in his driveway where there is a cooler filled with dog treats. Every dog that walks in the neighbourhood knows that this is their place to stop and get a friendly hello and a snack when they are out walking. It’s also become a fantastic way for this man to get to know all of his neighbours.
This past week, I made a huge mistake. I run a business accountability program called DRIVERs that people can join after attending Roadmap. One of the elements included in DRIVERs is a webinar to help people tune up their Roadmap. That webinar was scheduled for this week but there was one small problem. No one knew.
Only a small number of people in our Facebook group saw the post about it and the person on my team who helps to manage this program didn’t know either.
Every year it is a tradition for me to publish a list of books that I’ve read and recommended. This year’s list is pretty stellar, and one of the reasons that it’s even more impressive is because over 60 other people read them with me.
A year ago, I started a book club called Thought Readers.

I think you should start a business book club and ship us the books you’re reading each month and teach us the lessons you’re learning while you read. I’ll be your first customer.”
Every year, the day after American Thanksgiving, consumers flock to retail stores to shop and take advantage of deep discounts and promotions, fondly referred to as Black Friday. These once a year promotions have now migrated into the week before Black Friday (everyone wants to get a head start) and have invaded your inbox with online promotions too.
Her name is Jas. She walked up to me at lunch and said, “This is the best one yet. I am loving MMMEvent this year.”
I looked at her in shock because the story I was telling myself was very different.
Last week, Kylie on my team asked me for blog content one week before our annual big event. I typed up a reply to her to say, “let’s skip next week” and then I had a moment.
We walked into the establishment starving. The waitress showed us to a table and both my husband and I headed for the restrooms.
Have you bought into the hype that if you create the perfect sales funnel with the right upsell and down sell, you can rapidly earn millions? This is simply not true.
