This week I'm going to start our conversation with a topic different from the usual database growth topic. For those of you who don’t know I’ve been working hard since the beginning of the year to get a nonprofit organization, off the ground. FOZA, Inc. that’s (Friends of Zayne Adams) is focused on Maternal Mental Health, specifically for awareness of postpartum depression, prevention of maternal suicides and supporting the children who are left behind.
I’m happy to report that with God’s Blessings, along with help from Team DonPaul and FOZA Board Members, we’ve been able to get a lot of work done already, first of all our Podcast for Maternal Mental Health were I interview resources who provide information related to our cause and we’ve installed on the Web site what we call our FOZA Finder, and that’s a service that provides a resource list for postpartum moms in need of information and services in their local area around the nation.
So I want to invite you to visit FOZAInc.org and keep in mind all of the mothers in your circle, especially the postpartum moms. They don’t always share their feelings and we don’t always know they are hurting inside. Look out for them, share our FOZA resources and of course your donations are welcome! In loving Memory Of Christina LaShawn Thompson-Adams
With all of that said, you’re probably wondering why I selected the word “miss” for this week’s database building marketing moment?
Well, it’s because for the first time this year, I missed my goal of publishing on my self-selected day of the week.. So how can a so-called expert at autoresponders and yes a user of one of the industry’s top email technologies miss a publication date?
No excuses … just a miss …however … new subscribers came into my database, yes I grew
and no I don’t plan to miss another publication but I wanted to let you know if you miss a goal, don’t let that slow down your intent. Keep working at it. You are building momentum and everything is not going to fall apart with one stumble.
When I speak with my business clients about the growth they have accomplished in the past 38 weeks … even in this pandemic …Wow … it is amazing and uplifting and the best part is that there is still time in this year to continue growing or even to get started.
I’d love to chat with you about what you are building so I hope you’ll connect with me. I know it’s going to be great and I know it all starts with one factor, your most valuable business asset …your database!
Talk with you again soon … Bye Bye
