I’m in Newport, Rhode Island this week hanging out at the lovely Castle Hill Inn. It’s one of my favourite places to go. It’s on the water, it’s beautiful, and the service is outstanding. Rumour has it the employees look the guests up on social media and study what they look like and memorize your name so everywhere you go, you feel like everyone knows you. It’s very impressive the little details that they take into account.
Marketing is the very activity you do to attract leads and customers to your business. It’s also the very same activity others use to attract you to them. With everything going on in your inbox and on social media, it’s becoming difficult to manage the marketing madness of messages and notifications.
Let’s face it, you’ve got notifications on three to five social networks easily, you’ve got messenger inboxes on all of those social networks and you’ve got your regular email inbox to manage. It’s a lot to stay on top of. Navigating your way through the distractions to get to important stuff can be challenging and tiresome.
Whenever someone tells me they have a cash flow problem, I almost always uncover that they actually have a marketing problem.
Humor me for a moment and ask yourself, what would need to change to lose 10-15lbs?
Could you eat healthy one day a month, and binge the rest of the time? Could you exercise only when you “felt” inspired?
Overwhelm can deplete the energy out of the most enthusiastic business owners and bring the most creative entrepreneurs to their knees. The more ideas you have, the harder it becomes to harness that creativity and tame it into simple steps you can take action on each day.
If your ideas are big and the amount of action you take is small, you start to second guess everything, and you might even find yourself questioning whether you have what it takes to succeed.
When this happens to you, it’s time to get back to the basics and organize your overwhelm.

Regret is rarely about saying yes to the things we want in life.
Normally, regret is tied to the things you chose not to do. It is reserved for those times you let fear and resistance pave the path for your future.
Chances are you feel overwhelmed with the amount of stuff you need to do each day.
There may be times when you feel like you’ll never be able to progress further than you are right now because there is too much on your plate. Too many tasks, obligations, and distractions.
When you are planning your marketing for 2017, remember to utilize all of your assets! Your content is an asset.
Content is how you establish credibility and provide value for your community. It’s important to look back on what your audience responds to. By understanding what they liked or didn’t like, you know what to focus on in the future.
