After sorting out an issue with my web host and upgrading to the latest version of WordPress, I realized it had been quite a while since my last post.
As it’s been a while, I thought rather than jumping into talking about online advertising, Google Adwords, and lead generation, instead I would add a short personal update.
The first part of 2012 was challenging health wise: several minor injuries, food poisoning, and two run ins with the flu put me behind pretty much from the get go starting in January. After an amazing year in 2011 both personally and in regards to my consulting business, 2012 hit me like a ton of bricks.
Saving graces: 1) Trip to Scottsdale in March to soak up the sun, shoot guns, drive dirt bikes, swim, hike, and enjoy the good nature of the locals. I realized I love the desert and that baking in the sun is good for what ails you. 2) I am on a men’s team which meets weekly. My team helped me keep going and keep things in perspective when times got tough. 3) My wife: she’s great and never stops believing in me! It’s a good thing for a man to be with a woman who believes in him.
It’s the end of August and I can now say I have prevailed. I’m healthy, I’m in shape, and I am back in the work groove.
A big win came at the end of July when closed on our first investment property. Business is picking up now that I am back in good shape health wise.
And despite yet another drastically short summer here in Vancouver, opportunity abounds and lots of good stuff is in the works for fall 2012!
Now back to marketing!
