    Posted on November 20 2012 by SecretWeapon in Blog, Business, Inspiration with 0 comments

    Today is a great day for letting the world know what you are working on. This is not a day for hiding under the covers or avoiding important tasks.

    The good news is that for most people in the office business world, this is a short work week. The bad news is that this is a short work week. How will you maximize your time?

    Marketing is a great thing to work on when sales calls are difficult to make. If you are in the sales field, then sales calls are an important part of your business. But calling on Thanksgiving week is limited with many people taking half or the whole week off.  So here’s a short and sweet game plan for maximizing your marketing during the time you are away from the office.

    1. Write out the next 5 days worth of marketing Tweets, LinkedIn Posts and Facebook Updates now. Take 1 hour and get it done.  You don’t want the world to think you took the whole week off, do you?
    2. Pre-schedule your social media for the next 5 days using Hootsuite.
    3. If you haven’t already, gather your Client list (don’t forget distributors and vendors) to send Holiday Cards to. You need to remind them that you care about them. You can hand-write the cards, have your assistant help, or use a great tool like SendOutCards.
    4. Check on your Holiday and New Years Promotions. Are they relevant to what customers want? How will you let customers know about your specials?
    5. Check your calendar to make sure that everything that needs to be taken care is done before the holidays overtake everyone’s minds.

    Best of luck with another amazing week of business.  Contact us if you need any help or ideas for marketing and sales growth.

    This project started as a wish made with friends.

    Prosperity & Friends is an illustrated Cartoon Activity Workbook called “Inspire! with Prosperity & Friends.” The world needs role models now more than ever. Prosperity Angel is the lead character and together with her friends, they take readers through fun activities like goal setting, drawing their own cartoon, learning valuable life lessons, and other fun activities.

    The book is the first step in this magical series through the Multiverse. All backers will get finished copies of the book. The book is ideal for all ages and backgrounds. Those who have seen the notes and the drawings are excited about the finished project. We are on Kickstarter to raise funds for the drawings and prints. Visit www.ProsperityAndFriends.com to support the project.

    Why we are on Kickstarter:

    Angela started telling her friends about the project and friends told her to post it on Kickstarter. They said the people who visit this site are amazing, generous, forward thinkers. Preparing this project for Kickstarter was a pleasure and we are all excited about how much amazing work we can give back to all our generous backers and friends.Prosperity Angel’s biggest wish is to provide thousands of copies of this book to adults and youth who are in transition in their life. Those who feel lost or just want more happiness. This book is for people who have amazing lives or want them. We want the series to be translated into multiple languages to help people all over the world and of course, all over Prosperity’s Multiverse. The first work will be completed by August 2012.

    Prosperity’s creator is Angela DiCarlo, MBA, a motivational speaker, author and friend. Angela has done much in life and Prosperity is the next step in giving back. Angela has started kid’s fitness programs, non-profits, run successful marketing campaigns, written books, helped grow many businesses, taught hundreds of workshops, hosted radio shows, and lots of other fun ventures.

    The cartoonist is Mr Scott the Illustrator. His work is inspiring and fun.

    We went to Kickstarter to raise funds for this project and get awareness out of the characters. We know that it takes a community to create amazing results. Without you, there would be no readers.

    Prosperity started as a vision and has become a reality through the encouragement of friends. This first book will be our gift to those who want a better life. Adults and children have shown great love to the concept of Prosperity and Friends.
