I am typing this on Thursday night. I love being able to “schedule” my blog posts in advance.  Friday mornings I like to hang out with groovy people.  More on that in a bit.

I recently installed WordPress Editorial Plugin to ALL THREE of my blogs because it makes scheduling posts so easy.  Since I am currently doing a 31 day blogging challenge, scheduling is a necessity.  Today is day 9.  So far, so good!

Curious about what else I do?  I do still own and operate a successful custom furniture business, and last month I launched Handmade in Texas, a directory of artists and artisans.  Really, Handmade in Texas is just another platform that allows me to hang out with groovy people.

Fun Friday Photo

My daughter just walked into my office to ask me a question with half of her hair flat-ironed. She looks like Cruella Deville only more beautiful.

Yes, she KNOWS I posted this photo.  🙂  She’s a good sport.  Aren’t flat-irons great?

Relationship Marketing Tip of the Day

Friday mornings I host Cards and Coffee at Conroe Coffee. A group of us, and the group is different each week, get together and brainstorm relationship marketing ideas. We bring our laptops and create and send greeting cards.

Today’s tip is to find a group of people you enjoy being around and hang out with them!  I’m serious, your business will grow if you hang out with groovy people.

Surround yourself with talented, motivated, positive, groovy people.

If you don’t know any talented, motivated, positive, groovy people, join a club where these types of people congregate – like Toastmasters, or Lions, or Rotary.

I joined Toastmasters in 2006 because I wanted to hang out with groovy people.  My life is much different than it was before Toastmasters.  Groovy people change everything.

Surround yourself with talented, motivated, positive, groovy people. #blogboost Click To Tweet

    You really are who you hang out with. Want to succeed? Hang out with like minded people. Anyway, right before New Years, my best friend where I live was diagnosed with breast cancer. And, I ended up looking at some of your Bertha posts. I want to be a good, supportive friend to her. I’m glad I found your blog through the UBC. I’ll be back!

    I’m glad your daughter is a good sport and good for you for asking before posting that picture. My mom never asks. 🙂 I love what you said about intentionally surrounding yourself with awesome people. It really does make such a difference in your life.
