Time for a Change
Everything changes and, somewhere along the line,
I’m changing with it…Eric Burdon
This post is unusual as I am going to ramble on about a shift…..a directional shift in the way I run my business. You see, it’s time for a change. A change from the standard, “that’s the way we have always done it”, blogging style. Writing content is great, but not just for the sake of it. I want to write for specific reasons.
Time for a Change
It dawned on me last month. I had my first real challenge. I listened to you all and created a 30-day spring declutter challenge. It was a great success. Why do I say that? I put more emphasis on engagement and less on email and posts. I know that is what you all want. More interaction and a chance to practice and have a voice. To speak about your challenges, your journey, and your successes.
I have a Facebook group and a Facebook page. I also have an Instagram account. Why? To engage with you. For some time, I have been wondering why so much emphasis is put on writing posts and not on creating concrete challenges, materials, and meaningful engagement. I can spend more time on what you truly want. To have fun, to be actively organizing your home, and to engage with others doing the same thing.
So, here is the thing. I am listening. We will spend less time reading posts just to read posts and 1) challenge ourselves to be fierce home organizers, 2) engage and improve our skills, and 3) celebrate our journey and “high-five” each other. Isn’t that what this is all about?
In the coming months, my “shift” will include 1) spending more time on Facebook and Instagram and engaging with you both live and via recorded video and post. Join my Facebook group, my Facebook page, and follow me on Instagram for some fun and seriously life-changing challenges that are practical and easy to use if you set aside the time!
I know you have noticed that the world is now engaging via VIDEO! Now, before you say “wait a minute” I love to read too. Don’t worry. I am designing short eBooks for each challenge that I will charge a nominal fee. And I mean nominal. Home organization should be practical and affordable. I want to support a stellar business that works for my audience!
