It’s Christmas time and I’m in the spirit of Christmas..
I read a quote in Dan Kennedy’s ‘No BS Wealth Attraction in the New Economy’ from Dr Edward Kramer (author of “Synchromatics and inventor of the ‘Thank-U-Gram”) which struck me…
‘The hole you give through is the hole you receive through…’
It makes great sense doesn’t it.. How can you receive in greater quantities than you give?
And the goal of giving is not to expect anything in return…
So in the spirit of giving in the season of giving, I just wanted to send you my ‘all the best to you and your family’ Christmas wishes…
A GIVING MARKETING STRATEGY YOU CAN USE IN 2014
Talking of receiving, I’ve just received a lovely gift from Ben Wendell and Zac Nelles at Newsletter Marketing Systems. They ran a very innovative Referral Competition (which I didn’t even know I was in..).
You could do something similar in the New Year.
Check out how they did the draw here
The year has come to a close and I had the pleasure of drawing our 2013 Referral Competition Winner:
The Winner receives their choice of:
- the latest iPad
- A brand new TV
- $2000 Holiday Accommodation Voucher
Good Luck Ben Wendel & Zac Nelles.
Note: they give a choice of prizes… which is another tip the Direct Marketers recommend.
CHRISTMAS WISHES FROM DENMARK
I was down Denmark working with clients last week (and catching a wave or two each morning) and I thought I would record some Christmas wishes for you from there..
Just to get into the Aussie Beach Christmas spirit..
Here is a short one that shows the beach (as some people said ‘if you’re going to send a message from the beach at least show us the bloody beach…’)
NEW YEAR GOALS
On the 5 hours drive back from Denmark I was listening to a great CD interview from my Dan Kennedy CD of the Month selection.
It was with a fellow Henry Evans, author of the #1 Amazon Best Seller ‘One Hour a Day Entrepreneur’.
He reminded me of the importance of sitting down and writing out goals at this time of year.
Here are just some of his tips in summary:
- 7 Year Goals
- 1 Year Goals
- 90 day planner
- 30 day planner
- Weekly planner
- Daily planner
- Goals for top 5 areas of life: family, health, business, finance, personal development/spiritual
He talked about the importance of daily rituals. Here are just 7 of them..
- Waking up and focusing on the top 5 things you are grateful for in your life
- healthy breakfast
- focus on goals – important not urgent – Quadrant 2 Activities
- no emails before lunchtime
- block out chunks of time for tasks
- work to the clock – countdown timer
…and more.. Some great reminders for New Years productivity..
TALKING OF RECEIVING
While writing this email the DHL courier man knocked on the door and delivered two great Christmas gifts to us..
I got a new suit made which just arrived… Blue Linen (inspired from our trip to Italy last year…)
It’s a beauty… I’ll be giving that company a big positive today..
And Cath’s new bathers from Spain arrived too.. (Am I addicted to internet shopping? Almost…)
GIVING THE CUSTOMER INFORMATION
DHL had sent emails and tracking details so I saw the parcel arrived in Singapore yesterday morning, was shipped out at 6.20 last night, and here it is delivered to my house this morning.
Keeping the customer in the loop… so empowering and worry free..
(As distinct from two other businesses we had dealings with here in Perth where neither returned phone calls for days and we didn’t know if they were going to get the job done or not.. And not even an apology.
I won’t defame them in this newsletter but I will let key clients know about them.
Where do some people get off? Really…)
Anyway… It’s positivity time of year..
So I’ll deal with that one in 2014..
Onwards and upwards..
It’s the Spirit of Christmas and giving…
All the very best to you and your family and loved ones over this wonderful period.
Hug those you care about (and even a stranger while you’re at it..)
We’ll be heading off to Christmas Mass at Holy Spirit with all our family and friends tomorrow night.
Its one of my favorite parts of Christmas.
To be in a community of loving people who we now have spent almost 20 years with; celebrating the power of love, community, giving and receiving together.
Peace be with you.. Merry Christmas …and give yourself a
