A Lil' Piece of Advice

If I can share with anyone that is starting up a business. I would say the following as 2 of the most important things:

1. Never fall behind on your paperwork, especially your accounting and billing. Either set a time each day to knock it out or set one day each where you are working on it.Take it from me, spending a beautiful Saturday afternoon inside entering receipts from 3 months ago. Not a good look. TRUST!!

2. ALWAYS return phone calls and emails. NEVER let them fall to the wayside. Its all about communication. BELIEVE IT

I say this because its true, and because I had to give up a Saturday to get some details in place. I love what I do, but I can never be to busy to complete an important task.

Lesson learned.

New Media Secrets

Im very excited tonight because Rosh Sillars will be speaking at Harrington tonight. He will be presenting his program, New Media Secrets: Marketing Your Message

Here are the details of the program:

In this difficult economy and with ever declining budgets, how do you market your business effectively without breaking the bank?

This program is about sharing the new rules in the continuously changing landscape of communication. New Internet tools and applications are developed almost daily to help individuals and organizations better tell their story through digital marketing and personal branding.

Eighty percent of people with Internet access go to the Web first to find information about people, products and organizations. Blogs, podcasts, social media and Web 2.0 tools offer unique opportunities to level the playing field in the continuous effort to earn deeper attention of current clients and new prospects.

New Media Marketing is about the conversation, being engaged and attracting the attention of a world overloaded with information and resources

As I have said before Rosh is one of the founders of Prosperus Artists Academy, where I am a student. Its a great resource with priceless information

If you are in the loop tonight I would encourage you to come out. This is great knoweldge no matter what your medium is.
