Social Marketing Through Sickness

Well…back in upstate NY and back to spring colds.  Every time the weather makes a drastic change, I get sick.  This didn’t happen when we lived in KY because they don’t have the drastic temperature changes down there that we have up here.  It can be 80 degrees one day and 30 degrees the next.   And I get sick in that kind of weather.  Generally it’s not really sick, sick.  Most times it’s just a cold and laryngitis.  Laryngitis is always present.

In the past, when I did most of my prospecting offline and by calling leads, etc…  my business suffered.  This past week, my business hasn’t suffered.  Why?  Because I don’t need to speak or feel well to do social marketing.  I have had to reschedule a couple appointments that were to take place on the phone, but I’m still selling products, I’m still building my business.  If I’m feeling tired, I go sleep for a while.  Then, I social network when I wake up.  There is always someone online.

What about you?  If you couldn’t speak for a week or so, would your business suffer?  Or would you still be bringing in customers, clients, or business partners?  If you found yourself ill and didn’t feel well, would you still be able to work and prospect?

Good Monday Morning

It’s Monday again.  I get to see all of my facebook and twitter friends complain (starting Sunday nights) that today is Monday and they have to go back to work.  I can’t imagine going to a job anymore.  I have been blessed to work from home while my husband has needed me due to health issues.   I’ve been blessed to work from home while my children were growing up so I could homeschool them and be here for them when they needed me.  I’ve been blessed to be able to sleep until I wake up on Monday mornings (and every other morning for that matter).

Don’t get me wrong…it has NOT always been easy and my family has struggles just like any other family.  Working from home is NOT an answer for all of your problems.  It is not right for everyone either.  It is, however, a great way for you to alleviate some of the financial burden and a way to control your own future.

Many companies are even finding that they get more productivity in less time when they allow their employees to telecommute.  Why?  Because when you are paid based on productivity instead of hours you go to a physical building,, you tend to get more done in less time.

I will caution you…the time to start making money from home is NOT after you lose a job and have no income.  You need to get things in place while you still have a job and transition into working from home.  Wondering what you can do to make money from home?  Check out my Cash in on Your Passion series and find out how to make money AND have fun doing it.
