Would you take free business lessons? I do!
Seriously, I'm enrolled in a school that I call life. I'm busy, just like you. But I take those minutes in between and put them to work for me. It's not as easy as it looks. Those who have attended my classes--like Face Your Fears, Superhero Strategies for Unleashing Your Inner Awesome or even Recipes for Teaching a Great Class would tell you, it's not as hard as you fear and sometimes it's getting past that fear and embracing our humanity that is the biggest hurdle we face.
Yes, I did go to school. I finished high school, college and even took a graduate level class in metrics just for fun.
Laugh if you like, metrics are fun, and we can prove it. If you have no metrics, you can't prove that they aren't fun!
Oh, my the PUNs must stop.
Before I headed off to teach at two big sewing/quilting venues in 2016, I stopped by my favorite car shop, Rising Sun Motors
Why, cause when I am making choices, I like referrals, that's part of why I want a verified blue checkmark to have that extra oomph that I am me. So I thought, and yes, again, I invite you to laugh if you like...
But I really thought that asking for referrals was a good idea.
I was WRONG!!! seriously, I did not study business and only took 3 psychology classes, but I did take an awesome amount of engineering, science, math and philosophy/theology/ethics. So what does all that mean.
Catch free range referrals
Referrals that naturally occur in nature are far better that any you can grow in captivity. This is a whole books worth of stories, but for tonight--let's focus on the people. No matter what you do, it's a people business.
Thanks to Mike Warshauer of Rising Sun Motors for the title of this post-it's about the people.
