Getting The Most From Jive From The Hive
H ello my fellow online adventurers! A few years ago, (seems like a million days ago in online time) I started this little blog called JiveFromTheHive. After 15 years of digital and search engine optimization it was time to share my knowledge with those that would listen. I would indulge in blogging late at night after fulfilling my corporate responsibilities. Jive From The Hive offers a bunch of knowledge and tips but there is a spice of my opinions embedded in there as well.

Time, is there ever really enough?
A couple of years ago I stopped blogging because I had to focus on building a national agency, a business that would be successful. It took all my time and efforts to assemble. my personality dictates if your going to do something innovative it should take your best efforts and not be a half-ass attempt.
I am especially thankful to my friends in the industry who supported and offered open ears when I was processing next steps, for being constructive critics, sounding boards and honing my well researched ideas into implementable strategies.
What I learned during my sabbatical from blogging.
Experience is everything.
Do what you are uncomfortable doing
As an “Introvert Forced Extrovert” I very uncomfortably flung myself into very social situations. It was helpful to destroy all my internal inhibitions and start fresh. My New Comfort Zone – Uncomfortable is the new normal. Quickly, uncomfortable becomes comfortable. I love to “hack-through it” now as a normal state of mind.
Re-branding for the revolution
I love the technical and educated business strategies but lets face it your clients come to you for guidance and knowledge. It is your responsibility to educate them not drown them in information. Developing and documenting processes and selling products that fit our three buyer personas.
Reinventing Your Goals and Creating “Fun” time
One of the major reasons I had to cut back on blogging was my balanced healthy lifestyle was getting crushed. First and foremost is always your own personal health. If you feel off or are over working yourself it affects you inside and out. It affects your physical body and judgement and overall state of being. If you are not optimistic and have passion for what you do then it shows outwardly. I went from fitness modeling with an intense routine to fully immersed in building my online business. It took its toll physically. Amazingly, when the first half of your life is spent in athletics and training how easily and quickly your body is become sedimentary when you sit for long periods of time. Now, I share how I got back to feeling like a million bucks and my fitness routine balanced and found daily FUN again. More about this at WhenToZen.com
