Hi, I’m Deidre. In my posts, I talk about my voyage down the road of self-employment as a web copywriter, my achievements and roadblocks along the way, and what I’m learning as I go (with Marketing Mentor as my guide).
I nearly fell on my face laughing when the man paving my driveway told me that his driveway is stone because, “Asphalt driveways are too much damn work!”
I adored his honestly, but I was also so surprised. The man who paves driveways doesn’t boast a beautifully-paved driveway of his own?
There’s something about practicing what you preach…
I think part of the reason we all listen to Ilise’s advice (besides that fact it works!) is because we know she’s doing it herself. She is the Marketing Mentor, and she also does what she says.
- She creates products on how to create packages—AND she offers coaching packages.
- She promotes having a narrow niche—AND she has one herself.
- She encourages us to reach out to strangers—AND she does it too.
Doing a good job is one thing—but doing it because you’re passionate enough to also do it for yourself—I think takes you to that next level.
The driveway situation made me want to take inventory of how well I’m practicing what I preach. How about you?
