Hey Val Geisler: You’re kicking ass. You’re great at what you do. You can do this!
Also, there are no longer saber-toothed tigers. We can stray from our herds and survive very easily (and Lyft or Uber can scuttle us right back if we need it).
In the words of Dory: Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming. 😉
Really great stuff here Alice Karolina Smith. I’ve wrestled with the “enough” complex for years. So much of why we get stuck striving for more (of all things) is like you said, it’s bred into us from birth.
One of the best exercises I did to overcome my own addiction to growth was to actually write out exactly what I wanted…
The real interesting thing about all these pop-ups is that they work… to a degree. The numbers don’t lie for most people: Pop-ups convert email subscribers higher than anything else.
That’s where the data analyzation should start (but ends for most people).
Hey Camila R.! I don’t own a DSLR anymore, but I have traveled with a mirrorless camera (Fujfilm XT-1) as well as the DJI Osmo+. Both cameras had nice hard cases that didn’t take up too much room.
For every trip I go on, whether it was 18 days in Italy, 6 days in Iceland, or 3 days in Boulder, CO, I use/love the Carry-On 2.0…
Super interesting to see your shift Regina! I’m curious, what was the revenue split between all your offerings before making this change? And no, I don’t mean your income report. I mean, courses (ex: 30%), eKits (40%), live events (20%), upside-down yoga webinars (10%) 😜
In a similar place Lauren Modery. For some reason I have around 16k followers and have done nothing to get them. I rarely post content on Medium anymore because I’m not getting near the organic reach I was getting a year or two ago (similar numbers to you).
As a fellow journal-er of projects as they happen, I freakin’ LOOOOVE this Regina Anaejionu. Love it. I used Medium for a 60-day journal in 2015 and it was a really fun adventure.
Pumped to continue to follow along… now how do I get these updates in my inbox so I don’t have to remember to come back to Medium each day? 😊
Not at all Jeff Benning. I want to do as little incentivizing to get on my email list as possible. When the relationship starts with an incentive, it’s hard to break the habit of someone always needing to be incentivized. I’m also not interested in growing a huge list. I want a passionate group of people who opt-in because they see the value. Those folks are worth 100–1,000 incentivized opt-ins.
