Lindsay’s SEO and SMM Alerts – 8/20 Addition
I still don’t understand the way life can seemingly change overnight. My father used to tell me “the whole world can change in a day,” and like so many things that pass by us or are said to us, we don’t often realize what they truly mean until we experience it for ourselves- when our world is changed. Many of us felt this somewhat whiplash of a change with the economic shift; and I too seem to be reminded of this lesson both personally and in business.
However, to me this lesson is much more than what seems like a nice little kick at times… to me, it’s a reminder to love those close to you in your life and also to be somewhat flexible for what tomorrow brings. I have had to learn that lesson in business too.
As this shift continues to happen, my clients’ needs shift as well – so a product that was selling great 3 years ago- you can’t give away today. Although, it can seemingly give you whiplash – I enjoy the change in business and the constant evolution to my clients needs and adapting to them to provide the best value that I can. It keeps me on my toes- and fuels my ADD 🙂
I always enjoy feedback; so thank you for responding when you do! As always, please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help you!
I hope you enjoy and have a great weekend! 🙂
Until next time,
