1) Everyone over on the RedheadWriting Facebook page seems to love the graphic more than George W. Bush likes slaughtering the English language.
2) I had to call it something.
3) I’m blowing out the door shortly to go meet a long-term client in Denver and HAD to get a post up.
That’s three reasons. DAMMIT!
Two days ago, my dog Hippopotamus learned to play fetch. He’s five. As a flat-coated retriever/border collie mix, he’s a smart motherfucker but on occasion, slow on the uptake. What this means is that we can go play rollicking games of fetch twice a day and he’s much happier sleeping in his new apartment home. I classify this as a human/dog win.
What is important is that there is a metric fuck ton going on in my world, my business, and I’m going to share it with you — QUICKLY. Amp yourself up. Scream, “WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! TURTLES! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!”, run around your desk three times, and give yourself a high five. Today is quick, dirty (yeah, you like dirty), and prepping you for a guy named Herb tomorrow. Who the heck is Herb? Don’t be so nosey.
Wann hear me cry? Yeah, I’m a crier. Yesterday, Jennifer Armistead had me as a guest on her entrepreneurial- and career-related podcast Job Club. Use the player below to listen (it’s only 30 minutes) or use this link to pull it up in a web browser.
Do you have any fucking idea what a “personal brand” is? Me neither. Which is why I wrote this guest blog for JugnooMe today. I don’t think it’s nearly as difficult as people make it out to be. Oh – and I used to live in Tennessee.
Do you live in the San Francisco Bay Area or Sacramento? I’m coming to town on July 28 for a workshop, hosted by The Riff Raft. Slots are VERY limited (we’re keeping it personal, yo, like FIVE FOLKS personal) and you can learn more about this kickass day designed to kick your ass on the Facebook Event. It’s $65 for a day with me. I’ll even spank you if you want.
Did you take the survey? Over 150 of you have and I’m entirely grateful. RedheadWriting is going through some changes and since this is YOUR community anywhoo, you can have a hand in helping shape the future. Here’s the survey link *and thank you*.
Mmmmm….apples. I’m coming to New York City the week of September 23-28 for all sortsa things. If you’re in the area, lemme know and I’ll build an email list to let you know where I’m going to be. There are lots of you that I need to meet and can’t wait to put faces with names. Dates are also coming for Boston, Providence, Princeton, Nashville, Memphis, Birmingham (round 2!), Houston, Salt Lake City, and more!
The book. If you’ve bought one, would you mind leaving a review of it on Amazon.com? It helps authors out tremendously. If you haven’t yet picked up a copy and it’s on your list, It’s under $15 on Amazon right now — a veritable bargain. Grab one.
That’s it. I’m out of here.
Tomorrow, we’re talking about Herb.
Friday, it’s an announcement — two people know. You’ll (collectively) be the third. It’s a holy shit moment for me. So go and have your own holy shit moment for YOU today. And remember: YOU are the only reason shit isn’t getting done. Fix it.
