Monthly Marketing Update
- October 2018

In a recent radio interview I was asked about our friend, Krista, that passed away and what qualities I most admired and learned from her. She was sensitive and thoughtful, but what came to mind was how “present” she always was. She never seemed rushed, hurried, or made you feel less important than her next task. Please note- she was ALWAYS late to EVERYTHING. In the months since she passed away, her lack of timelines has never been mentioned, but how she made everyone around her feel comes up daily. Ideally- I would like to be both on time and present- but I will need to schedule less to make that happen- starting now. My goal is to “Do Less- but Better”!

Ironically this is NOT a month I can do less, we have scheduled the hell out of October, but in a good way. Moving forward, I will try to remember the advice I used to give her- “when you say yes to something, you inevitably say no to something else.” It can be a struggle to support all the events we want to be a part of, and still continue with our real job of producing the most comprehensive print and online resource for the community. Thanks for including us in your events and outreach.

Nuggets of Knowledge


"The key is not to prioritize your schedule, but to schedule your priorities." – Stephen Covey

Do you manage your schedule or does it manage you? I started my business 10 years ago with 2 toddlers because I wanted more time with family. But 3 years into the work, my 4 year old told me I was a bad mommy- and he was right. I was a good person, but not the most available parent. If someone looked only at your calendar and made a judgement based only on that- what appears to be your priorities? It is never too late to make a change. Good luck!
