Take Time to Smell the Otters

Last week I took Friday morning off.

Despite the fact that I had three presentations to revamp, 20 prospects to follow up with, and a seriously neglected email inbox.

I took it off anyway.

You see, Otto was being released back into the wild, and nothing was going to keep me from being there to see it.

Otto is a rehabilitated otter being released back into the wild right here where I live. To watch him galumph into the water, swim off into the bay and silkily dive back into his home was one of those priceless moments that NO amount of work should make me miss.

It got me thinking more clearly about why I work for myself and do what I do. If I had a “job” I’d most likely have missed this opportunity to see my favorite animal this close up and on land.

What do you love that you’re missing because of work and worry? Put these important things into your schedule, and you’ll find your life so much richer and your entrepreneurial experience all the more worth it.

Enjoy Otto’s YouTube debut!

So she developed the simple structure to cut through all the noise of social media, "experts", online funnels, advertising and more to focus on the central problem of business owners: getting more clients. And you know what? There is NOT a one-size-fits-all solution.
