Is it really June already?

I have complained about it before and now I am complaining again. Time goes way to fast.  I wish I could tell myself why.

I know it isn’t because I am so busy. Because that is not true. Not that long ago I figured out that I was spending way too much time on watching television, scrolling through my news-feed on Facebook and going through my email too many time.

The time I spend on my email is mainly spend on deleting emails because they are no use to me. I can stop receiving them though, but you never know. Maybe, just maybe there will be something interesting in there what I can use later. Probably the reason why I still have 200 emails un-read, because maybe I can use the content, but not right now. And probably I don’t do anything with it in the future.

Facebook I use as an excuse for my work. I agree quiet often I share posts and video’s to my pages. And being an admin of a group where people have really reading issues (rules can’t be read and I delete at least 10 posts a day). But a lot of time is wasted on watching video.

And TV??? What can I say….. I just need to see all the series from beginning to end. They are so good. And it is only a couple of hours in the morning…… sometimes a bit in the afternoon….. sometimes I just forget to stop watching. Not that I am only watching TV, because laundry, making diner, doing groceries and taking care of the dogs and horses is done in between. But still. Typical case of an couch-potato in training.

I know. I am harsh on myself. But there are just moments that I am so fed up with myself and this is such a moment. I know how I can change, what I have to do to change, how to become way more productive. I love to help others with it. I love to tell others what they should or should not do. Why I can’t do it for myself is a mystery.

At least I started with my blogs today.

Yeah, something productive!!!

Feeling good

For weeks I have been so busy with everything that has to do with my work and with setting up and expanding my MLM business (Why Oils Canada).

My website is more than decent by now. I even have a pop-up screen to sign-up for my newsletter. I also can see how many people are visiting my website. And I added the option so that you can read my newsletter. I still have to add some content though. But that will come over time.

I also created and send out my first newsletter. I started with an email marketing platform (Sendlane) which didn’t work out. I had to start over 3 times because their editor just stopped working. First they didn’t know why, then it was because I just used  “strange” characters, then there was something else…. After 2 weeks (I think I have been extremely patient) I decided to change to ChimpMail. So nice. In a couple of days I made my newsletter and send it out, I made my sign-up form for Facebook and for my website. I created my thank-you form (when people sign up) and I deleted my account with Sendlane.

Now I am preparing myself for the market which I will attend saturday in Canmore (Ab). I am working on a pamphlet, sign-up sheet, sample’s, etc. I have attended markets before, but I wasn’t happy with the outcome from it so I just stopped instead of changing the way I was “selling” myself. Because I always had some bottles with Thieves household cleaner I just managed to get my costs covered, but that was basically it.  No customers or just interested people to keep in touch with.

So part of my new “ME”, I will attend a market once a month and get email addresses for my newsletters and certainly some new customers.

And I keep on using my little bottle “Build your dream” essential oil blend. That seems to work too.
