Wolf Under Fire!
I have been working for the past year and half to break into the Digital Marketing arena to help brand MarketAtomy before my target market with informational webinars. I knew THAT this was important to do for my business…I even knew WHAT the subject matter and message would be, but I still kept putting it on the back burner for a number of reasons. I kept telling myself that it would happen when the time was right…It had to be perfect before I put it out there…That no one would want to hear what I had to say. All the while I was telling people at networking events and social gatherings that this is what I had planned and to watch for more information.
You’ve heard the story about the boy who cried wolf right? Well that is the message I was putting out there among my peers. It even got to the point that one time someone came up to me after I said this and told me…”I’m still waiting, when are you going to make it happen?”
It just so happened that I was at another networking event just last week and the subject came up. I debated how I would address this once again …“I couldn’t say that I’m going to do this and not have a plan in place to make it happen.” Therefore, I did the most asinine thing possible. I told them that I was BETA launching my first webinar next week and I was making it available at three different times. I was looking for people to give me feedback on my webinar content and the delivery of said content.
Once I put it out there, there was no taking it back. For the next 4 days we spend long hours fine-tuning our presentation and ultimately delivered as promised. The feedback we got was extremely positive and enlightening. The added bonus was that I did get 1 of my BETA viewers to sign up for the next portion of the webinar series.
The point I am trying to make here is that there are times when you have to take a leap and trust that everything will come together. If I hadn’t put myself out there with a commitment to deliver as promised, I would probably still be procrastinating today.
