✂️ Business leaders everywhere are looking at their budgets so they can cut anything right now that isn't making them money.That means you, marketers. Now, more than ever, you need to join forces with sales. So,please listen to mewhen I say you need to attend theVirtual Selling Summit on June 23.Use the code ONETEAMONEDREAM to get your ticket foronly $29.
My primary objective is to spend as much time as possible basking in the healing glow of the Tennessee sun, poolside and laughing with good friends who warm my heart. More than likely, I'll get burned to a crisp — thanks to the fact that I inherited my dad's Scottish complexion and not my mother's Italian one — but I don't care.
Of course, I'll still be around (virtually) for theVirtual Selling Summiton Tuesday, since I'm one of the speakers. You couldn't keep me away, honestly, I'm so excited about it.(Learn why here, and I hope to see you on Tuesday.)
Still this is the first vacation I've taken since... honestly, I can't even remember.That's probably not a good thing — a realization that was underscored earlier today, when I had a brief, yet powerful conversation with IMPACT VP of MarketingVin Gaeta.
We were talking about how I'd been doing, the challenges I've been tackling this week, and so on. Then he mentioned something that has really stuck with me throughout the day — the importance of "listening to our bodies" to tell us when we're broken, tired, and in need of a little peace.
I haven't done a great job with that recently, particularly within the past few weeks. I'm sure I'm probably not alone.
It's easy to succumb to this notion that you can't stop. Not even for a second. But at some point, you need to stop, breathe, listen to your body, and take a break when you need to. You can't keep going and pushing forever.
So, that's what I did today. Finally. Around dinner time, I set down what I was working on, I drove to East Rock Park in New Haven, laid in the grass, andlistened to the relaxation playlistI made for myself earlier today for about an hour... and finally just stopped.
(This dreamy songin particular always gets me. I want to fall in love to it... but also nap to it, heh.)
And it's what I'll do all next week. So, that way, when I come back fully rested, I'll be able to crush whatever goal is put in front of me. I hope you all find time to do the same, because this is a marathon, not a sprint.
And now, here's THE LATEST...
