Today I would like to talk about something that is really hard for me! TRAINING. I often find little thing to read, encourage and even motivate myself around the web. I bookmark the page or print it out to go over and learn from….. then, it sits there! Yes, I am a procrastinator….a really big one! I didn’t used to be, but it happened slowly and very completely! Therefor, I have been doing my own TRAINING for this new BLOG format that I started. It is brought back the basics and shown me some new things to try.
For myself, and all of you, we need to train our mind on a single goal. It should be obtainable. But a goal non the less. On Training Thursday’s I am going to challenge myself and you to so something that will help us market our creations. This week – LIST 5 NEW ITEMS in your shops, your fan page or website. These can be little items, big items, or even older items that you need to re-list (but create a new listing – don’t just push RE-LIST). The goal is to have 5 NEW listings by next Thursday. For myself I am going to set this goal at 10 ITEMS, only because I have many things it can list…. I have to just TRAIN myself to do it!
That is the main objective. If we TRAIN ourselves to list and item a day, or blog each weekday or even twitter 10 times a day, then we will. It just takes time, TRAINING and motivation…..
WE CAN DO IT!!!
I found this wonderful 3rd generation artist, Prankearts that really fits with today’s message. “LOOKING IN LOOKING OUT?” makes me wonder, am I looking in or out at my studio, my creations and my marketing?
Please check Prankearts (Richard) out on his web page as well – Richardt Pranke and you can read more about him and enjoy his art – I sure did!!
Remember, your goal for this weeks TRAINING is 5 NEW LISTINGS ( 10 FOR ME). Please check in next week to see if I made it or not. I would love to have to leave a comment making a commitment to the goal (or one of your own for this week) and come back and let us all know if you made it!
Enjoy your day!!! ~KM
