All in Philosophy

It's common practice at the end of any year to take a look back as well as a look at what's to come. What worked what didn't work for your business? What are the "trends" for 2016? What trends are no longer effective?

As I take a look back at this year, I also reflect on my years as a marketer working with small businesses. In a market that is changing at nothing slower than 100 miles an hour, it's vital to do- more than just once a year. And honestly, it can be intimidating! 

I have a friend who always talks about how busy she is. She will literally call me to tell me her entire to-do list. While I patiently listen while folding laundry, I can't help but think about how much she could be getting done while she's taking the time to tell me how "busy" she is.  On the other hand, after she has had a "productive" day, she will list off all of the little things she got accomplished.
