“Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone
planted a tree a long time ago.”
I love that quote.
Because it shows what a big difference small actions taken today can make in both our own future and the future of our loved ones and the entire human race.
Let’s dissect this for a moment and see how we can use this in our daily business lives.
A tree comes from a seed.
A seed creates a tree.
A tree is big.
A seed is tiny.
Does that mean tiny action steps which are nurtured over time can make a huge difference?
Does that mean you don’t need to start with something big (a lot of money, a lot of influence) in order to create something big).
I think so.
So what can you do today which could create a tree for yourself
and your loved ones tomorrow?
You could start collecting the names and numbers of your customers. And keeping in touch with them (watering them) month in and month out until that seed turns into an acorn.
You could run a classified ad. Or place an ad in your local paper. Or send a fax stream. Or run a google adwords campaign. Or try facebook marketing. Or get started in the social media space such as facebook or twitter.
Sure – some seeds you plant may get washed away and turn into
But if you nurture them… if you give them proper care… if you invest the time into them… some of them are going to turn into big acorns which might just feed you and your family forever.
And think about it – if you knew that you needed to plant 5, 10
even 20 seeds in order to create one acorn which would give you
fruit forever, wouldn’t you do it?
I certainly would.
Of course, you need to know how to plant them. How to tend to the
soil. How to nurture their growth.
And it’s no different to turning an advertising or marketing “seed”
into a “tree.”
You need to know what seeds to plant and how to nurture them to
maximise your results.
That’s why I created http://www.morecustomersmadeeasy.com with over a dozen seeds you can start planting and nurturing step-by-step over the next 12 months.
Why not start planting those seeds now so that 3 months from now… 6 months from now… 12 months from now… and years down the track… you and your loved ones can be benefitting from the shade of your foresight?
