I have been doing some thinking of my old neighborhood and city. I lived there for a long time and made some friends, but since my family as moved I do not get to see them. And let’s face it I am not one for long phone conversations, I mean that would really cut into “all that is me” time. I am sure you know what I am talking about, you either are looking for a different way to share things with either your friends and family or maybe even your clients or target audience ( not sure what this means but my moms say it is important).

Well let me share an idea with you that either you might be using but not taking full advantage of or maybe one that you have not even started to use but should be. Social Media it is a great way to share your message with your audience or clients or reconnect and stay in touch with those in your life.

Now there are many channels to choose from and they will not all be for you, and let’s be honest you cannot do it all (even I have to admit that to myself). You will need to take a little time and choose which ones will work for you to either communicate with your loved ones or share with your clients and target audience, But a few of the more popular ones to check out are:

Facebook – You can post text and images as well as run ads targeted to your community. You can even do Live Video streaming now. For those of you who would like to visit my page: Click here.

Twitter- You can post messages, videos and images (please be aware they limited you to 140 charters total that includes links and images).

LinkedIn – You can post Text and images and share your weekly blog, be aware this platform is very business related.

Pinterest – You can create boards and pin images with a descriptions, this is a very visual platform and very popular with women (I know this because my moms are women).

Instagram – Allows you to snap a photo with your phone or pad and upload and share.

Now all of the above except LinkedIn allow you to use Hashtags, which will allow your post to show up if somebody searches for a certain thing or topic. You can also create company pages to use in your business marketing.

That is just a few for you to look into. I myself use Facebook so I can post photos and share as much as I like with my people (my people sounds so cool).

I know it seems a little scary to get this going but trust me once you get it down it can be a lot of fun and very informative to you and those you share with.

That is all for this week, I need to go and watch the vacuum, my feathered brothers and sisters do not like it so I watch to make sure it does not scare them too much, a big brothers work is never done.

Till next week. Emmy

I know some of you are thinking how boring, doing the same things over and over daily. And for certain things I would have to agree, but not for all things, sheesh let me tell you. In our house we have my feathered brother and sisters, I think I have spoken to you about them before.

And in this bunch of little people as my mom calls them are my green brothers ( who think they run the place, but they do not but I do let them think that and as my mom says what they do not know will not hurt them, but let’s save this for another conversation.) Okay so back to the subject at hand, the greenie babies have to be in bed by 7:30 at night not a minute later, if they have to wait they are unhappy and boy do they let you know it. So our house has a birdie bedtime. But if I am being honest I have a bedtime I like to be in bed by 8PM, now I get unhappy if I have to wait for bed but not as upset as some.

This is one is one of the routines that is followed in our house and it works for us.

Another routine in our house is I like to have my breakfast by no later than 9 AM, I have learned to wait until this time because on the weekends my moms like to relax a little and since they work hard to make sure I am happy and taken care of I figure it is the least I can do.

We have more routines in our home but I think you get the point of this and maybe even where I am going with it.

Routines may sound boring and tedious but sometimes creating and following a routine will make things run smoothly and get done quickly, efficiently and correct the first time around. Now I am not saying it will always be that way. But think of it this way if you do something in your business and or your life the same way every day, then you will find that you do it without thinking.

Now think about how you can use this in your life or business daily:

Do you have tasks that must be completed in your business or for a client daily? If so do you do them at the same time and same way every day? If you answered yes to both, then that is a routine.

Got you thinking huh? Routines are not always boring and can turn out to be helpful to accomplish things in your daily life.

This is where I leave you, it is my time to visit all my humans (it is part of my routine.)

Okay, so today let’s talk about one of my favorite subjects, for those of you who have been reading my thoughts or know me, this is not a big surprise for you. I love to have fun and enjoy my life. I mean I have a pretty great life. And I have learned to come to appreciate the idea of having fun and enjoying what you have been blessed with.

Do you make time to have fun?

Do you have time to do to enjoy the things you work for?

Do you laugh in your life?

I am hoping that you answered yes to all of those questions but if not, please keep reading this message is all about what you need to do be able to answer yes to those questions.

I know you work hard and I am sure you enjoy your business and clients but if you do not take time to have fun and enjoy your life, then you are not truly able to give you best to anything you touch or create. I mean if life was meant to be serious all the time then comedy and laughter and smiles and happiness would not even be things we knew existed, right?

I am not saying change everything in your life but what I am saying is take some time to enjoy your life and have fun, as we all know you only get one. So make the most out of your time in this world, I know I am.

You might just find that you enjoy all aspects of your life better work and personal. And that you are more productive and less stressed at work and at home.

So I am prescribing to you to take time and do something fun for yourself and maybe even share it with those you love. (Wow, could you see me as a doctor…I would so rock that.)

Speaking of fun it think it might be butt scratches and treats time for me.

I know I took a couple of weeks off, hey I needed a break. But now I am back and I know you missed me.

Everyone is getting ready to show that special woman in your life how much she means to you, whether she be your mom or the mother of your children. You want to share the love you have for her on this special day. Now my only issue with this is you should do this every day, I mean you should not have to have a special day to show those you love or care about what they mean to you. Life is short and if ended tomorrow did they know? The person in your life that no matter what had your back and was there in the good and the bad times, did they know? Or did you sometimes take advantage that they would just always understand and be there?

Well enough of that, I have some really great humans and my moms are the best in the world. They cook for me and make sure I am a happy and healthy guy. And every day they show me how much they love me.

So I decided this week I would share some of the things they have taught me, since between you and I they are also pretty smart. I hope that you can take something away from this and even share it with those you care about, or even your mom on her special day.

  1. Always treat those as you would like to be treated. This means if you are not nice to somebody do not expect them to be nice to you or continue to do so if they are nice to you now.
  2. Always be fair. This could be used in many ways: Be fair in game playing, do not cheat to win. Be fair in life do not make everything about you, Be fair when working make sure to pull your own weight ( now I of course do not have this issue but in business make sure you would not ask somebody to do something you would not do and do not ask them to do more than you.)
  3. Always Share. I learned that sharing can be the easiest thing in the world and the quickest way to get a smile. (Yes, I share with my sister.)
  4. Show love. I think I explained what this means in the beginning of my thoughts today.
  5. Be considerate. Do not just think about yourself take the time and energy to consider those in your life and show them this, it could be as simple as asking them if they would like a drink. (When I do this for my sister I always get rewarded with a Doggie smile.)
  6. Be helpful and kind. ( I think you all know this without too much explanation) But do you practice it? If not you should.

Those are just a few of the many things I have learned from my moms, now my life did not start out great, but I was a lucky one. The day my moms  found me was the best one in my life. So make sure to show your mom how much she means to you on her special day, but more importantly show her and all the others you care about ( friends, family, clients, etc.) that they are special everyday as well.

if you want to share some special time with your pet children how about cooking them this it is one of my favorites!
