Is your book project ready for the next E-Revolution?
But honestly, when I hear people call me a "guru," I kinda cringe. Why?
Because I thought of a "guru" as some person sitting on a mountain somewhere - detached from people - and thinking they hold the "holy grail." You know, the type of person that can't relate to people because they think they are better than everyone.
OMG! I am not that.
I know my mission is to serve, to be a marketing help, to be a solution-finder - so I can't be on top of mountain - I have to be in the trenches.
So, I started thinking, what is a GURU anyway? Why do people say that about me?
According to the dictionary a guru is: A teacher and guide. A trusted counselor and adviser; a mentor. A recognized leader in their field. An acknowledged and influential advocate.
Well, I have been at this thing for a loooooooooong time. So, I see, I do qualify. That's a good thing. Here's a recent magazine feature that said I was marketing/PR guru.
We still network that way…because everyone knows the best form of advertising is "word of mouth!"
When someone knows of you – they can do business with you or refer business to you!
SO, the more people know and reach out to on a regular – you can BRAND WHO you are, WHAT you do – and eventually turn contacts into contracts – or at the very least a customer…or influence someone to "buy into" whatever you're marketing or selling!
Whether it's a book, business, service, product, ministry or idea.
