I often tell my client to celebrate their successes.
Deep down we all love a bit of praise for a job well done. It might come from family, friends, colleagues, or clients, but just a simple “thank you,” “well done” or “that was great” can make us feel a whole lot better.
But sometimes it might feel as though compliments are in short supply. Maybe someone in your close family thinks “you should get a proper job” or “why are you bothering with that” and it can hurt.
Make sure when you do have a success you share it with people who will support and celebrate with you.
So will you help me celebrate?
This month has been absolutely amazing for me. Why?
1 – I got given Member of the Week by Network Central.
This is from over 10,000 registered users, across 4 networking platforms, I was recognised for the effort I put into not only running 4Networking meetings, being part of 1Networking, engaging on the Network Central Social Media platform, but also for the support and time I give to other members and teams to help them understand how to get the most from networking.
2 – I found out I was a finalist in Networker of the Year award at Business Success Recognition awards 2022.
From nearly 600 nominations, again I was recognised as being worthy enough for my nomination and supporting comments to be sent over to the judges – Ian, Marine, Sarah, Abid and Emma, fo them to decide if I am good enough to win this prestigious award.
Good luck to everyone in all categories and I look forward to seeing you all at the awards dinner in June.
3 – Final throws of book collaboration
I’ve been writing my first book since Christmas and it’s going to be published next month. This was an idea which has come out of a friendship formed with Jenny Leggott from Transcend Zero, met through 4Networking,
So the first book in the Focus Guru Series, “Focus Guru – 52 ways to achieve your work life balance” was born!
We had a call between Christmas and New year, decided we could together come up with 52 tips on work / life balance and make a book. Less than 5 Months later, we have now added Jonathan Smythe to our collaboration. Here’s a sneaking peak at part of the back cover.
4 – Free marketing
I am passionate about making the most of everything a membership organisation offer to me. Part of my Network Central membership is the ability to go onto their social media platform and use it to raise awareness of myself and my business.
One of the best ways to do this is to get what is called “a full house”. This is where your name and picture is on every the front screen of every room. Just like this!
It means that everyone visiting the site has to see my name and my picture. The chances are if I track my profile views before getting the full house and after, there will be more visits to my profile after. This means more people will know about me, what I do and how I can help them than before I achieved the full house.
So remember, you should be celebrating every win.
What wins can you celebrate form this week?
