“When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.”
The last five days have certainly felt like there was a conspiracy against poor little me. It started with someone hacking my PayPal account through Facebook and ended with me feeling very sorry for myself until I realized that I had actually succeeded. I will convey the PayPal Facebook scenario later over at betweentheweeds.com. There are still a few details waiting to be settled.
When anyone faced with diversity has a tendency to think we need to just go with it as if we are floating down the river in a tire tube. It is great for your blood pressure but how will you find adventures and experiences if you don’t fight the current and go on shore to explore. If this experience had not happened I would not have discovered another piece to my puzzle of knowing me. The most confident spiritual successful person doesn’t have all the information about their life otherwise they simply would not be Here.
I was misinformed about Facebook and its relevancy in my business. Because my world received a blow that shook me back to a path leading me to discovering Facebook is about advertising. Making money for Facebook and likes or unlikes have absolutely nothing to do with you your page or your fans. Your information is not protected and for artists your copyrights are at jeopardy. For a long time my gut or intuition kept churning every time I logged in on Facebook but I did not listen. Finally the universe said stop I am talking to You, and I listened. I have discovered threads and conversations this past weekend addressing my concerns. Facebook is great for staying in touch with your family and friends and to update information about your business and leave it there. I am very careful how Facebook is connected to me and my information but that is for a later date.
If I had remained floating along in my tire tube staring at the shore gently going by I never would have discovered that I needed to stream line my business. Between The Weeds had become scattered. I was trying to offer everything for all people. I now see pick one or two areas and be the best in those areas anywhere. Look at the most successful people and model your work around them. They may be good at many things but are experts in one or two areas. In the following weeks I am working on solutions for the shop.
I needed to point into the wind and take off and fly. It is beautiful up here …come join me.
