Two wheelbarrow loads – that’s how much muck I collected yesterday afternoon. And I only stopped then because I ran out of daylight. I certainly hadn’t run out of muck.
– If you’ve been following for the last few days you’ll recall I’m in Britanny, horse, dog and house sitting.
Anyway, this morning, there it all was again – you would swear I hadn’t cleared up at all. Three barrow loads this time …
You have to wonder how two horses can make so much of the stuff. But anyway, their care is mainly down to me for the next nine days, so let’s hope we all survive and stay good friends.
I’ve been given ample training so I’m sure I’ll manage. When you have to do everything yourself you do get to learn a lot of skills, some of which you wouldn’t actually choose to do. There’s probably an equivalent in your business to my muck collecting duties – one of those tasks that need to be done, and maybe every day, but which you’ll gladly hand over to someone else as soon as you can afford to have someone else do it.
Some things, though, will always need your attention, so you might as well learn how to do them as well as you can and as soon as possible, for your business’ sake, as well as your own.
One of those is reputation management or, as we prefer to think of it, reputation marketing. Your online reputation, in the age of social media and instant publicity (bad and good) is a major factor in your business’ success.
