Experience is an excellent teacher, and lately it seems that many bloggers have learned a ton from the latest movie, or dance craze, or some other passing fancy. I’ve shared my own thoughts about things I learned from:
- Sesame Street (including tell a story to make your message memorable);
- Renovating my kitchen (including that it’s okay to be a perfectionist if it means doing your very best work);
- Going on a spa getaway (such as offering options without undercutting your value);
- Watching Dancing With The Stars (it’s not all about you, whether you are writing or giving dance lessons); and
- Dog behaviour (including taking long walks and being loyal).
I’m just back from a whirlwind visit to California and wanted to write a post about what I learned from the experience. Despite connecting flights, it was great because my frequent flyer brother was able to upgrade my seats on three out of four flights to Business Class. I was sure there was something I could relate to running a business, like showing simple courtesy, treating customers as special and going above and beyond (oh, warm chocolate chip cookies!).
But what I really learned was that I never want to fly economy again. Sigh.
