• Melanie,

    We tend to forget the innocence of our childhood. Been clouded over with layers and layers of adult baggage. I think I’ll reach back and resurrect the child in me. Thanks for the suggestion, girl!

    • Who knows, Rick — might even be FUN to think like a child again. πŸ™‚

      Thanks for commenting today and say hello to Lynn for me.


  • Good day to you, Bobbye!

    Twenty-nine years and four children later …

    I can definitely attest to the fact that babies can teach us a thing or two. πŸ™‚

    As you so aptly stated, “Waking up from our stupors” is a good start!


  • Yes, I am trying really hard to become louder. I am an introvert, a quiet person. Announcing my blog or products, over and over each day seems like ego stroking to me, but I see it happen on twitter.
    Perhaps like you said, it is the noise making that will take my business to the next level.

    • Howdy MJ!

      I’m not sure why most people don’t believe this about me, but I’m just like you, MJ — I’m basically a quiet, reserved person. I’ll go so far as to say that I’m pretty much a loner. But when it comes to taking care of business, the Johnny Carson in me comes alive! πŸ™‚

      So go ahead and grab a bullhorn or megaphone and sound off the greatness in you!!

      You need to be heard,

  • Woo Hoo! Great insights Melanie. Waking up from our stupors to be the brilliant inner child that we are at heart — this is the the key to marketing in a way that honors our true brilliance. Wonderful lesson here in pondering how babies get our attention, and how we can embody a similar model. Thanks.
