For the past few weeks I have been working on a bestseller book campaign for an author client and it has been a refreshing experience.
Working with a team of 4 people (including the author), we have accomplished much more in 3 weeks than was accomplished in 3 months in a previous book launch project I was involved in with more than half a dozen team members and what seemed like hundreds of hours of strategy meetings.
Every Monday we would have an in-office meeting that would eat up our entire morning and sometimes part of our afternoon, as well. Designs were changed time and again, deadlines and launch dates were pushed back, opinions and personalities clashed, and my passion for the project died more every meeting.
Today, as an entrepreneur, I set the rules. No Monday meetings. No haters. No one who isn’t serious about my mission of empowering authors and speakers to get their message out.
It has been such a blessing to work with a Godly author and team members, all working in unison to bring a positive message of Biblical business success principles to Christian business men and women who want to see their business succeed while honoring God.
There are 5 differences I can see between the nightmare bestselling book campaign and the dream bestselling book campaign that I have been blessed to help bring to life.
There is a vision for this book and bestseller campaign. We are all clear on the vision and we connect with the vision.
Our team members all run their own God based businesses and work as if we are working for God, not for man, which unites us with a sense of purpose and brotherhood.
As individuals we are not always right, we don’t always have the answers, and sometimes we just don’t know how to do something. The members of our Dream Team know this and all of us have the humility to take suggestions and follow instructions without getting hurt or offended.
We may not have a central office where we meet for several hours each week, but what we do have is dedication. When there is a video that needs to be shot that’s what we do.
We have love for each other. We pray together, serve each other, and enjoy each other’s great company.
Through seeing this contrast, I have learned that the best part about running my own business is the freedom to choose the type of clients and projects I work for, as well as the type of people I partner with.
In life and in business I encourage you to dedicate your time, energy, and talents only to the things and people that you believe in and will improve the quality of your life, not take away from it.
Like Jay Conrad Levinson always says: “guard your time well because time is not money; time is life.”
