For almost two or three years, I have been talking about the importance of having a local marketing and customer retention plan while most experts or gurus were pushing people to dump all their eggs into the social media basket. Last month, Twitter announced they would be closing the Vine platform. Causing people to go into a tizzy of what they should be doing regarding social media and growing their business.
I’m going to share something with you that’s going to increase your productivity, especially in the creative area of your business. I only create when I’m feeling creative. Heavens doors open and angels begin to sing. It’s really that simple. If I’m not feeling creative I don’t create. I don’t force any thing when it comes to my business, especially not, the content I put out.

That’s a plethora of information being produced on a daily basis, that could result in a burn out. I would prefer not burn out.

Last week, I was having a conversation with my best friend about how great it was to be a kid, especially during the holidays. We reminisced about the fun of getting Valentine’s Day cards and the candy when you went to school. Everyone received something. Now as an adult with no boyfriend, I still want to feel special and my friends do too. I remember Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere made cards last year, and that’s where my crafty inspiration came from.
