Exclamation What Did You Do Today?

Not unlike a plant, your business needs to be nourished daily in order to grow and thrive and reach its full potential. What did you do today to nourish your business? Did you write an article, and distribute it across the internet? Did you advertise? Did you distribute a press release? Did you participate in a discussion on a popular forum or blog? Did you contribute any content to social networking sites? Did you write an e-book? Did you send out an e-mail promotion or newsletter? Did you collaborate on a joint venture?

What did you do today to nourish your business?

Woke up 5:30 checked emails (10 addresses)
Processed 31 orders that came in from Restore-A-Deck over the weekend
Met with my guys to give them the weeks job orders
Interviewed two potentials for crew leaders
Did 6 estimates and proposals
Followed up with 10 estimates I didn't close last week.
Went to Cold Stone franchise to check on malfunctioning freezer
Met with a publishing company salesperson whom handles my church bulleting advertisement
Reviewed first draft designs for my new doorhangers and sell sheets
Took a break, checked the BBS's (said hi to Logan)
Wrote out bills
Fought with my stain manufacturer about delayed product shipment
Drove to warehouse and checked in shipment
Met with my operations manager Jason and drank a beer.

Ate dinner and here I am. I am sorry to say I slacked a bit today and did not write any articles or social network. LOL. Darn, I need to get a life outside of business.

Good for you, Brody. I don't mind the shameless plug. Like you said, I did ask. Keep up the good work!

Not exactly the kind of list I had in mind for this topic, since we all have to do things during the course of the day that are crucial to running our business. That being said, one could easily make the argument that the things you listed are indeed nouishment for your particular business, because if you don't do them you won't have a business.

I was just teasing you Dale. I have been working hard on SEO and its definitely paying off. Good post and a good reminder that you should try to do things to help promote yourself every day.
