Slay Your Dragon

What accomplishment are you proud of? What dragons are you slaying?

It’s ok to give yourself a pat on the back once in awhile. I’m totally guilty of beating myself up when things don’t go the way I planned or at the speed I expect.
So today, I’m gonna be proud of myself. I was thinking about the last 12 months and all that I’ve actually accomplished. So much…but one of the things I am most proud of may seem silly to many.
My Dragon: Email Automation
I’ve got real live email automation sequences running. While this may not seem like a big deal to you. It’s a monstrous accomplishment for me.
My Super Power is Events!
You see, email automation is like calculus to me. I didn’t get it. I couldn’t wrap my head around it. Plain and simple, I hated it.
I can run events like a beast, but email was the bain of my existence.
Even now, I don’t like checking email. It’s just one of those things I don’t like.
So, for the last couple of years (Yes, apparently I’m a REALLY slow learner when I resist something) my friend Stephan Hovnanian (who is an email marketing genius) patiently taught me, answered my questions and helped me clear the cobwebs out of my head.
I’m a hard core visual learner, so earlier this year Stephanie Calahan helped me visualize what my first automation sequence would look like. I was finally able to create it, albeit slowly.
Recently, n the middle of writing a new email sequence I realized what I was doing hit me like a ton of bricks. I’m actually writing a full sequence of emails and I’m not complaining or pulling my hair out.
For me to have automations running and for me to grasp the flow of it is huge.
