Join the Revolution

Take action, stop the recessionToday we’re taking a break from our usual nurture marketing tips and doing something a little different…

Maybe it’s just me, but I’m tired of all the bad news that seems to be popping up with regularity these days – all the talk about a double-dip recession, stock market drops, federal budget crises and more.

I’m bringing back something we did when the recession first hit, a couple years ago.

Back then I felt a little overwhelmed with what was going on and I decided that the best way to deal with it was to take action. So I put this pledge up on our website and asked people to sign.

The text is below – it’s pretty simple.

If it strikes a chord with you, I hope you’ll sign too. And I hope you’ll share it so other people can sign. You can sign and share here:

I truly believe that if we work together, that we can turn this economy around.

And doing something about it feels a whole lot better than doing nothing.

We’re also going to be making some changes to our Facebook page in the next couple weeks, working to make it a place where people can get help with their nurture marketing programs and where people can go to give help. If you “like” us, you’ll get all the details. (But I’ll probably include them in the newsletter too.)

Here’s the pledge:

I’ve had enough bad news, enough talk of a double-dip recession. Yes, the world has changed. But the world is always changing. I see new opportunities that are available to me and I’m taking advantage of them.

I’m going to take action:

1. I’m going to invest time and effort in growing my own business.
2. I’m going to do something to help someone else grow theirs.
3. Then I’m going to put work aside and have some fun!

Here’s the link again if you’d like to sign too:
