Last week, I got a little surprise in the mail. My good friend, LeeAnn Webster of Totally Telesummits, suggested I read Mike Michalowicz’s book, Profit First. So I ordered it on Amazon.
But I wasn’t expecting a package to arrive with two books in the mail. In fact, Mike sent me a personal thank-you note with a signed copy of his new book, The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur.
It was a cool surprise, and I started reading right away. As you may imagine based on the title of his new book, the content is somewhat crude and blunt. I usually don’t write in that style, but I sure don’t mind reading it!
If there’s one thing that really wears me out when it comes to running my business, it’s when I get too serious. Usually right around the time things get heavy and uber serious is when I start worrying too much, over-thinking things, and cutting off my own creativity.
What I know for certain (as Oprah would say) is that my business must be creative, interesting and fun in order for me to be able to put forth my best self consistently.
