Hey fellow jumpers, earlier this year I took a giant leap and sealed my future for the next 10 years or so. I signed a deal to open a FASTSIGNS in Lawrence Kansas and we had a very soft opening this past week. Check us out at www.fastsigns.com/2139.
We offer everything from promotional items to giant signs on the sides of buildings. As we all jump into our next phase of life many of you are (or will be) looking for cost-effective promotional items, unique give-a-ways, banners and other marketing materials to promote your new ventures.
This forum and community has been an inspiration and provided lots of good advice along my path and now it is my turn to give back. Give me a call or shoot me an email when you need promotional or marketing materials and I will set you up with a discounted pricing. Ask for Matt and tell me you are a 48 days jumper.
Congrats Matt! - Leaps, JUMPs, and actions are what move us forward in life.
As a business owner, our work is never quite done, but neither are the blessings that happen to us along the way. May I offer a little advice to you, and anyone else reading along?
First, learn from the lessons that are happening all around you. Make it a habit of ending each day with a few minutes of reflection. Think about the smiles and kind words customers share when you deliver their products. In those times when you fall short in some way, don't beat yourself up. Instead, seek the benefits of transforming the situation into an opportunity for improvement.
Second, there is no valid reason those feelings of excitement and possibility you have right now should ever go away. Do your best to hold them in your heart so that each day can be a fresh start.
And finally, always put the long-term goal of serving others above any short-term desire for quick profits.
By the way, it's very heartwarming for you to offer a discount to JUMPers. Thanks for that.
That is great advice, several years ago I read a book by Robert Kiyosaki and one thing that stuck with me was a conversation he had with a successful businessman.
Robert: How do you become successful?
Businessman: by making good decisions?
Robert: How do you make good decisions?
Businessman: By making lots of bad decisions.
Since then I have tried to live by the mantra that failure is only a mistake if you don't learn anything from it, otherwise it is a learning opportunity.
Congratulations Matt! I'm not real far from you, I live SE of Salina, KS. I am trying to build my natural farming business and will be checking out your website soon! Best wishes to you!
Good luck Jeremy! Natural Farming is big in many of the areas I frequent. Do you have a website I can check out?
Congratulations on your BIG Leap.
