Whether or not meditation sounds like it’s your thing, you really need to have a few moments with yourself sometimes. And that’s why I love this app Headspace to help me do just that.
Some craziness happened when I came home from vacation last week and I wanted to wait to talk about it until I was completely over it. And I would say I’m most of the way there. Tune in if you wanna know what’s goin’ on.
Sh*t happens. Right? There’s not much we can do about it. The only way to get anywhere in the world is to try new things and then correct when the outcome you were hoping for doesn’t happen.
What I love about fails is that we are the failers have an opportunity with these things to make it all right. Not just apologizing in some way, if necessary. But to teach people how to avoid it and make the better move instead. That really makes an audience bond to you.
It makes sense for most of the world to think that YouTube is a scary place when it comes to feedback. Comment sections can be a bit depressing if you dig in deep.

But what confuses me is that the marketing community could be so uninformed about why these things shake out the way they do and the best way to combat it: community. More on this in today’s video.
As I so self-fulfilling you reminded you last week, it’s going to be the end of the year soon. This is the perfect time to evaluate your current rates. How much are you charging for what you do versus all the time spent actually executing, how much you’re paying in expenses and costs, and how well its benefiting the business when the deal is all said and done.
You might find you’re just breaking even. Maybe you don’t even charge enough to pay for costs. Have you got a client who’s been with you forever and you just don’t know how to tell them your business is growing and your price has changed?
It’s been a really long weekend. I’ve had CNN on since Friday morning. I’ve been by the television for every live press conference, vigil and speech from the Governor of Connecticut and the President of the United States. Our country has suffered 27 tremendous losses and the need for information and understanding keeps me and many others sucked in, even though we know we’re never going to get the answer to the only question that seems to matter right now: Why?
