What Marketing Fear has Your Head in the Sand

A while back, I took the girls for their physicals and flu shots. Always a fun day on the parent calendar! In coaching our youngest, Emma, through her fear and panic over the shot, I was reminded of a sign I had received. It was during lunch on the day of our first webinar (almost…

Paying It Forward

Sooooo…one of the key values at LillaBlu (and for me, really) is transparency. It can be hard, especially when we don’t want to bother or burden others…or if we’re afraid to be seen…or worried about what others will think. When I was trying to organize my thoughts to prep for a live video I did…

Last week I had surgery. It was planned, although I don’t think we ever “plan” on having surgery! It wasn’t small, yet not so intense as some of the surgeries I’ve watched my parents and other loved ones go through… and it is already jam-packed with lessons for me.

love your tugs and your marketing plan
