The Weekly – A Wee Bit of the Irish… 1 way to add a bit of the green

Are You Ready for St. Patrick’s Day?

Is every holiday a time to promote?

That’s like asking, is every day a day to sell? Ha!

So St. Patrick’s day is this weekend – what is 1 thing you can do to add more green to your business?

You probably have more ideas than the one I’m going to share – I would love to hear them, but if nothing else, why not give a discount to any person or pet that sports some green?

Or, if not a discount, why not have something special to give to those in green? A treat, a little extra service perhaps?

Even though it’s not a major holiday, no one takes it off work, right? It’s still fun to recognize that some people feel pride in their Irishness.

Here’s some information that will make you and your business memorable on March 17th.

Why do people wear green on St. Patrick’s day?

Wearing green shirts and leprechaun costumes on St. Patrick’s Day are traditions that started in the 17th century, when people wore green ribbons and shamrocks on March 17 to honor Ireland’s patron saint.

And this is something else to share with your customers about St. Patrick’s Day:

St. Patrick’s Day celebrates the Roman Catholic feast day of the patron saint of Ireland. St. Patrick died on March 17, 461. And he wasn’t even Irish!

Saint Patrick was a Christian missionary given credit with converting Ireland to Christianity in the AD 400s. It is believed he was born around 375AD in Scotland.

And to make it even more special – here’s an Irish Blessing for you –

May your neighbors respect you,

Trouble neglect you,

The angels protect you,

And heaven accept you.

May the luck of the Irish be with you and your business this St. Patrick’s Day!

Blessings, Shawna

Pet Women Weekly – You are a Gift! So Let Me Give You One!

Giving to You Makes Me Happy!

 

The day a person is born is a day for celebration. The woman who labored to bring this life forth. The man who provided the seed, the family that welcomes and loves the new addition – celebration! And the infant knows nothing of it.

Later that “birth day” – becomes their celebration. They turn another year older, have traversed the world for an additional 365 days, hopefully provided value or love to others.

And they get gifts.

 Gifts and cake are two very fun things about birthdays I think.

 Now, however, as I’m adding numbers up, gifts mean something different. Cake, though – that is a constant delight!

 For me now, the gifts I most relish are not things, they are people, experiences, pleasures.

 YOU are a gift – being in my circle, reading my words, commenting, sharing, encouraging. Thank you for that!

 Now I want to give you a gift. It’s a task actually, that as you do it will make the world a better place and also help you have the best day of your life.

 Ready? Here is the gift:

For the rest of this day, no matter who you meet or talk to, tell that person: “YOU are Important!”

When you do this you will be sprinkling magic out that will have remarkable effects.

You are important to this business

You are important to this company

You are doing important work

You are important to the world

You are important to others

You are important to this organization

You are important to the community

You are important to this family

You are important to me

Because it’s true.

People, however, need to hear it and you are just the person to share it.

Please use this gift to have the best day ever and let me know how it goes for you. That will be the best birthday gift I could receive.

Thank you, I’m off to eat cake!

Oh – Happy St. Paddys Day too!

Blessings, Shawna

Pet Women Weekly – A Sweet Idea for Enhanced Productivity

Dear Pet Lover,

Let’s Go Virtual!

I (heart) getting virtual help!

If you have a growing business (and would like to grow it better, faster and more effectively) than looking into virtual help could be something you fall completely in love with like I have.

If, on the other hand, you think – “No, I would prefer to do it myself, or I think I’d like having someone with me onsite is best”, you could be cheating yourself out of some really amazing options.

There are several places to find terrific virtual help – online is one way – Of Course!

And, here are a few others:

Ask other business people you think are successful, who they use.

Put it out on your networks – we have a private FB group for WIPIN Members and that’s how we use it best – sharing resources.

For those who are not members yet, you can follow our public page at: https://www.facebook.com/WomenInThePetIndustryNetwork/

And before you contact a couple of those with the highest recommendations – put a list together of what EXACTLY you want them to do. This will save you and them time.

Don’t you LOVE this idea on this Valentine’s week? Give yourself a lovely gift that will keep giving – the use of a VA – Virtual Assistant. You’ll LOVE the result!

 If you want to know who I use, you can email me and I’ll share…

If you have someone you love, you share that and these might end up in a future weekly!

You create your day – so make it magnificent!

Blessings, Shawna
