Hi Sian! What an 'epic' post!!! I'd not be surprised if it becomes an integral part of the TYB guest blogging process ;-) Two things came to mind as I read it, and I wanted to share. The first thing has everything to do with the questions we receive from our audience. While I understand, our initial reactions in replying to "common sense" questions, I like to always keep in mind the famous Disney's example. I've blogged about it before as I first heard it during one of the most fascinating tours I've ever had the pleasure to participate in: the business behind the scenes one at the Disney's resort in Orlando, FL. Did you know what one of the most frequently asked questions on a daily basis at a Disney resort is? It's "What time is the 3 o’clock parade?” And, it's great to keep this in mind with the frequently asked questions we get from our own audience as this is a brilliant reminder that it gives us the chance to exceed expectations and go above & beyond for our visitors with our responses. As what they actually need goes beyond the 3 o'clock answer ;-) And, second thing has to do with style. As you know I lead with value and contributing is something that I love to do but I've had unpleasant experiences before, where an editor would make changes to my copy and in the process, negatively impact the effectiveness of the post. The solution is of course to communicate, and have a mutual understanding of the material, as most editors do not have quantum linguistics skills, so would not be apt in "fixing" such and such turns of phrases. My 2 cents ;-) Great series of reminders for experienced guest bloggers, as well as a great checklist for newer ones. Thank you!"
WooHoo!!! Thank you so much. It was a pleasure to be interviewed by you Sian, and an honour to be asked in the first place, and now be featured on TweakYourBiz, thank YOU. And, looks like we are celebrating our 5th virtual meet anniversary too, happy anniversary, another great Twitter success story ;-) I appreciate the wonderful intro too, and your words mean a lot. This is what I do, and it is amazing to hear it; everything we achieve, every mountain we move, started with us having the energy, the drive, the confidence, the guts, etc, in a nutshell, being empowered, and I LOVE IT. When (some) people ask the value of what I deliver, I often answer, it’ll equal what you will achieve once you are on your way! And, you are right, I am happy to answer any questions and comments…"
