Cause a Reaction

1

Your marketing should cause a reaction. You should cause a reaction.

If you want people to take action you need them to react (clue is in the word ‘act’).

Now this might mean you need to have a different point of view. It might mean you have to be the person that says out loud what everyone else is only thinking. Maybe you need to step away from the crowd and start a new movement; wear something different, do something different, be something different.

You have all the answers (& they’re different for everyone)

As any good coach will tell you (not that I’m a coach, but I’ve worked with plenty!) YOU have all the answers.

Some weeds are very pretty, with flowers that brighten up the garden. Some weeds smell good, look good and are hardy so thrive where other plants need lots of care. Sometimes a weed is just a ‘good plant’ that’s growing in the wrong place…

If you’re going to get wet – might as well swim

My exercise ‘Thing’ is swimming. I love to swim in an outdoor pool (not in the sea!) but there is something that I see when I am there which I don’t get.

Now, I appreciate that not everyone comes swimming to plough up and down doing laps like me but surely if you’re going to get wet—might as well swim.
