I was having a day where I was really struggling to stay inspired. It was a day of some self refection and business planning. I know I’m not alone when you are having just one of those days. I subscribe to Google Alerts and if anything comes up with my name Michelle Gill Newton, I get an alert.
Imagine my surprise when I received the following alert:
NAPW Forest Hills, NY Chapter Hosted Direct Marketing Guru & Author Michelle Gill Newton at September Networking Event
Did they say “Direct Marketing Guru”! Whoo Hoo! Talk about a shift in attitude. I had no idea that my talk would be written up in Newsday Newspaper, our Long Island local paper. I love looking up meanings so I wanted to see what the meanings of Guru were :
When you do what you love and you are walking in your passion, it is so amazing. It reminded me of what I shared at the NAPW Networking event and what I also shared in an article I wrote for Lingk2us.com online magazine.
Making the Sale:Understanding why the basics of branding is still your best bet
The article is about basic branding of yourself and your business. Become an expert. Share information about the type of business you represent. Provide your customer with helpful information and facts about your related industry. Are you the expert in your local area where people come to you for information? Become that expert. I look forward to being able to share with may more people as my business grows.
I think I like the title Guru.
