Really? Most of my recycled craft workshops are only $30.00 and all of them give theory on saving money AND helping the environment in simple ways from the comfort of your own home. I had to pay a lot of money for my formal degree education to learn that and I now delight in sharing information for very little cost (lots of my stuff is free too).
[Statement from potential customers re Melanie s Power of Pinning course] Melanie, even though this is a very attractive offer, right now this is beyond my budget.
Look, even in a terrible economy, there is no shortage of money! In fact, the same amount of money is circulating in the global economy as before - and even more! Let me re-state it using a Seth Godin quote: "Just because the tide is out doesn't mean there is less water in the ocean!
What has changed is the way money is being spent and the "direction" in which is being allocated!
So if you, or your company, are experiencing a cash crunch it's because you are suffering from a lack of money-making knowledge in action!
I know, it's a harsh statement, but take it from someone who turned a business in debt into a multimillion dollar brand. It was the knowledge that I gained that allows me to experience healthy business growth - even in this crappy economy. AND, I've helped a number of brand new businesses get tons of exposure and sales as well. (Yes, even during this "crappy" economy!)
Believe me, there is no lack of money out there. And people (and companies) are spending like crazy on what they WANT to buy.
SO, let me ask you a question. If you currently are experiencing financial challenges, if you don't do something different fast - will you be better off or worse off 90 days from now? Six months from now?
AND the only way to improve your outcomes is to get and act on new information. Same ol' same ol' won't get you any further than where you are right now.
Again, harsh, I know. But my job is to help you and your business grow not to make you feel good; God invented mothers for that. 😉
I read this, and Melanie's words and the Seth Godin quote resonated deeply with me. Life is all about choices and balancing the resources that we have. I appreciate that often families have to make tough financial choices - me too, I am no different (I have four kids). My choice though, is to protect the environment for our future generations ....and I cannot do it without your help, because YOU are my business.
Our vision is to teach every craft lover in the world how to protect their environment through smart art (recycled craft) thinking and playing. We aim to empower individuals to save the environment through mass action of individual home based effort. Making junk precious: that is The Junk Wave.
I would LOVE to see you at one of my workshops. You can also book me to tailor a training especially for you and your group's needs (schools, early childhood facilities, service clubs, etc).
I'd love to hear your thoughts on Seth's quote and Melanie Duncan's words. I'm sending this post to Melanie (so she'll see your comments) and I actively recommend doing her free webinars on using Pinterest for YOUR business. The woman has taught me much and I am very grateful to her. The least I can do is recommend you to her.
Fly like the wind, people.....remember that "just because the tide is out doesn't mean there is less water in the ocean."
