It’s been one week and I am tired! Tired from what you may ask? Well my “A” type personality has me believing I can do it all, and in reality there needs to be balance. So after just spending 70$ at my massage therapist, who innocently asked if I was under a lot of stress lately, I had a light bulb moment! I need to slow down.
In the last week, I have worked my regular full time job, I meditate twice a day, yoga once, writing this blog and worked hard at building a Twitter following, oh yes I am in the middle of selling my house, oh and my boyfriend would like me to mention him 🙂 As my Amway sponsor and very good friend reminded me today, it’s not an overnight success, it takes time.
In my haste, I have managed to piss the Twitter administrators off at least 3 times, I am pretty sure I am bordering on crossing social media/branding lines with Amway and today a fellow WordPress blogger sent me the dos and don’t of selling products on WordPress, twice! This is were I breathe deeply and delete my “featured products page” and my “how it works page”. I am pretty sure I am now compliant with WordPress and Amway! I totally understand where both are coming from, companies spend big money and considerable time building a reputable brand and really don’t need an amateur like me messing with it!
So does this mean I am giving up? Nope!! You know the saying, work smarter not harder, well that is what I am going to do. Amway assures us that we can be successful selling Amway part time, I guess everyones’ definition of success and how quickly it comes is different, making the whole concept subjective. However minus the nights spent having nightmares about how to get more Twitter followers, true story, I have very much enjoyed this. Especially the blogging part! I have always found writing challenging but blogging seems to be a bit different and I think I am hooked!
At the one week mark, I have just over 1500 Twitter followers, who have been great to me! I have had 533 views to my Blog, people are starting to comment and I know have 16 followers, thank you! Two important things came of my experiment this week, one, I have connected with new people, which is awesome and I have learned many new skills this week maybe the hard way but I have learned!
Thanks again for all the support. As always please follow my blog and if you have any questions about buying Amway products or how to get involved, please go to my Contacts page.
Have a great evening!
