Just let me do what I do best

I am an experienced Marketing guru and also own my own Marketing company.  I have several long lasting clients that stay around – most of them letting me do what I do best… while others hire me and then don’t listen to anything I have to say about marketing.  They take the tools I provide to them and then change it to how they think it should be.  It’s so extremely frustrating because they HIRED me to do this – and to do what I do best within their company.  But yet, they aren’t following the lead I provide.  It just doesn’t make sense — why hire a consultant when you don’t let them use their expertise?  Trust me, consultants know what’s best for your company, that’s their profession (as long as you hire a good one).  And that’s why they retain several clients – it’s simply their niche.  So, please if anyone out there is interested in hiring a consultant for whatever reason.  Let them do what they do best, and hand the reigns over.  It will be most beneficial to you and your company if you just let them do their job.  This I promise.

Oh, how I love thee!

I LOVE wine!  Especially after a long day at work.  There’s something so relaxing about it – and it seems to clear my head after a long day.  For years I’ve tried all kinds of things in the evening to ‘clear my head’ and relax – but nothing seems to work — until now!  A couple glasses of wine and I’m relaxed!  So try it, friends.  Drink a glass of wine before you turn in for the night… it will really make you feel better.  Just don’t have too much!  Note to self:  Don’t work while drinking wine!

Is there something in particular that you do to clear your head after a long day?  I’d love to hear what tactics you use to relax.  Post it!

How was your 4th of July?

Happy 4th of July everyone!  I hope you had a fantastic time with friends, family, and good food!  I had a great time, spending it outside (got a nice sunburn out of the deal too)!  I will say that one of my favorite holidays is the 4th – only because it’s a time to be a proud American and to be thankful that we live in such a fantastic place.  However, it’s a very sad time for me as well – my father passed away 13 years ago (yes, it was the 4th of July).  So, it’s definitely a bittersweet holiday.  When I sit back and watch all of the fabulous fireworks in the sky, I seem to become overwhelmed with sadness – wishing that my family was whole again.  But maybe it’s a sign – a sign to live every day to its fullest and appreciate everything around you.  Maybe that’s the way my Dad wanted it to be – to rejoice on the 4th and be glad you’re in America!

I miss you Dad.
