This is Week 29 of a 52-week project/experiment in DIY marketing. Armed with nothing but a copy of the 2009 Grow Your Business Marketing Plan + Calendar
and my bare wits, I'm applying the skills you need to grow a business
in real time, day by day, and reporting on them week by week. See my
companion blog, A Virgo's Guide to Marketing, for some more in-depth posts, additional links and other marketing-related goodness.
Week 29 may be the one that goes down in my personal marketing history as the week when everything finally came together—or at least, came together enough that I could notice how having done my marketing so consistently (yes, even with lapses) could make a real difference both in how I felt (supported, confident) and how things actually worked (relatively smoothly, bringing in business).
It was a week of travel, writing, networking, connecting and pushing myself to the max; it was also a week of intense discovery and lots and lots of fun.
