Getting to Know my Readers, Part 1

Over the next few weeks, I’ve decided to do a series of posts where I’ll be asking questions to get to know you, my readers, a little bit better so I can write posts that you’ll relate to a little better. I’ll be posting these as interviews on MyBlogU – here are the responses I got for the first three questions I asked: 

Q. Tell me about the most stressful thing that happened to you last wee

A. Phil Turner (The 5 Currencies Guy)

My step-daughter’s wedding – My car was parked half  a mile away, it was raining and I had to make 3 trips to get things that had been forgotten out of the car.

The snowstorm!  They did not salt the roads, so the snow compacted, turned to ice and left the highway with a washboard, pack-ice surface.  Three hours to get from the Big City back to base.  And there were plenty of idiots who though the speed limit applies only on blacktop – on ice and snow, let’s test the accelerator!  Very streessful driving.

If I will have to stick with-in the period of last week then it will be an eCommerce campaign for one of my prestigious client. They had a redesign and despite of the fact that they’ve cleaned up their DB files, they improved their Page Speed and they have very good Google organic positions, their sales have drastically been dropped. It was most stressful work for me to get rid out of the situation.

Q. What’s something you’ve been struggling with for months, but can’t seem to find a solution for?

A. Phil Turner (The 5 Currencies Guy)

Losing weight – I know the solution, but I still keep opening the fridge door and looking for a slice of cheese or a chicken leg.

A. David Leonhardt (President, THGM Writers) 

Time management.  I’ve been struggling with that for years, but in the past couple months, there have been new pressures relating to my wife’s temporary promotion as “Acting Manager” and the competition to secure the promotion permanently.  That has affected the whole family.  The time challenges are only temporary, but trying to maintain one’s level of business, family involvement and sanity through a few months like this is definitely a challenge.

It is very easy for me to respond – I’ve been struggling with exponentially raising my business. I am a marketer for small-to-medium sized businesses and all my running campaigns are doing very well, but you can never satisfy with what you have today. You need more; I am fighting with my eager every week, every month.

Q. If you could take over any business or blog, which one would you want, and why?

A. Phil Turner (The 5 Currencies Guy)

Entrepreneur.com because I love the posts on their site. I could spend hours every day reading them, so I don’t visit the site at all.

A. David Leonhardt (President, THGM Writers)

I would take over a tour company in a highly natural locale, such as in Central America or Southeast Asia.  It would have to be one big enough to support several knowledgeable local guides to run the actual tours.  The “why” is simple.  I want to get out hiking and kayaking and touring in beautiful mountains and on beautiful water.  And there is no better way than to make it incidental to one’s career.

In the meantime, I’ll keep writing until I get a client who wants me to work face to face with him near his home in Panama or Ecuador or Vietnam or…

I can count unlimited names here but with-in my Business niche, I am very much impressed with Lauren Cracower and her boutique marketing agency, Suite 203 Communications. She is best at what she does. I would love to grab the kind of business deals, she had and she has.

That’s what just a few of my readers had to say – I would love to hear the other answers to these questions, so feel free to comment below! And be sure to look for “Getting to Know My Readers, Part 2” next Monday.
