Thank You

in Business,Personal,Social Media

Little do you all know, I am actually a crazy mad woman behind the scenes. I (supposedly) get things done and run a company, but in truth–my wheels STAY spinning.

But I am working on it. The past few days I have been contemplating some really big moves and plans for 2009 and I realized I am way too unorganized to do anything. My first goal is to get organized, create systems to keep myself organized so I can be more effective with my time and energy. I hired an assistant months ago–but she doesn’t do any work because I haven’t delegated much to her at all. This needs to stop.

Anyway, as I temporarily avoid replying to email (I am backed up, to say the least) you guys keep writing in! To tell me how great and wonderful and awesome I am! And! If only you knew! I am a mess. LOL.

I just wanted to write a short note to say THANK YOU:

To everyone who writes me sweet and encouraging emails (I’m going to write back I promise).
To everyone on Twitter who takes the time to pay me any mind.
To all my online and IRL friends who supported me throughout 2008 with all your encouragement and support.

The good and bad times of 2008 were so much better with you guys in my corner with your emails, text messages, IMs, tweets, DMs, messages, meetups, videochats, Facebook comments, phone calls, blog comments, etc.

THANK YOU.

I haven’t been able to stay on top of replying to everybody, and I apologize if you may feel like I ignored you. I promise, I read everything that comes in….getting back is another story. But I am working on it! So, thanks again for your time and energy and good vibes.

/end corny entry and return to Bat cave to organize….something.

All my Twitter jokes aside, I think that you are a great person (even though we have never met IRL)! You will figure it all out. Just make sure you report back your “getting things done” system when you implement it!

What an interesting person!!!
How did I get here?
Started out reading one of 10,000+ emails specifically one: BDPA.org about BETF.org. From there some interesting videos about Black Engineers, Black inventors, etc. then your tremendous and gripping website.
Why am I here? How did this happen? There is a reason for everything.
In this case, I don’t think it was by happenstance. I’ll probably be around waiting and watching for the answer: Why did I “land” here?????
Keep up the good work.
p.s. I miss my buddy Billy Bigfoot, a Navajo who served with me in the military at the Mojave desert in Twenty Nine Palms, Calif., probably before you were born. Some of your statements reminded me of him. It’s quite a story and I just might get around to writing about it someday.

Don’t sweat it,–things will get clearer for you this month! That’s a totally non-horoscope, BTW. Getting organized is a big deal when you’re trying to run your own business, so don’t worry: you’re not the only one! One thing I do is to keep a legion of Moleskine & alternatives (found on sale at Borders) to keep notes of things that I *want* to do but *need* to sideline, take aways from books and things like that. Also, I’m almost done with my business plan, business model, project script and would be happy to share. It’s not hard, and without all the distracting bells and whistles, jotting down notes directly to the database keeps me moving forward, since the pretty version can be designed later.
