The final month of 2020 is here, and we're almost over that year end finish line!
Here are the updates about DIY services you need to know now:
First, the live Q&A webinar follow ups on Facebook aren't working. 😕 Disappointing, but at least now we know. Lesson learned. Moving forward, I will edit the content of the monthly webinars to allow more Q&A time.
Second, a bonus for Premium members! A special set of Action Calls is on the schedule on December 28th at 9 and 11 AM Pacific. Usually, we take a break at the end of the year for the holidays. I want to record some Action Calls for promotional purposes, so I decided to schedule them that week. These calls are exactly like our regular Action Calls except that the recordings will be used as public video demos. So fair warning: If you participate, you do so with the full understanding that these calls are not private.
Third, the 12-session Prosperity & Profitability Marketing Machine Workshop starts in January. There is no charge, and it is open to all members as well as the public. I will explain why, and share my project marketing plan in Wednesday's Virtual Mastermind Meeting for Premium members: Mastermind Meetings
This month's Appreciation as a Marketing Strategy webinar ran shorter than I planned. 😬 Because I edited out my famous "appreciation awakening" story. And deleted specifics about the 5 strategies we discussed. 🙄 OK, so not my best decision ever. 😅
The good news is that there will be some new material, plus plenty of time to answer questions on Tuesday. Yes, Tuesday. That's when we'll debrief the Appreciation as a Marketing Strategy webinar content LIVE.
Join me on Tuesday, November 24, 2020. We'll start at 10 AM Pacific · 12 PM Central · 1 PM Eastern. You can join via Zoom or watch it all right in our Facebook group.
Holiday week note: Both Action Calls are happening on Monday, contrary to the previously announced schedule. The DIY office will be closed Thursday and Friday for the holiday. I'll be snug at home, doing dinner a deux with Jerry as per our usual. Toasting and appreciating YOU! 🥂
Wishing you and yours a safe, happy, and healthy Thanksgiving celebration. 🦃
To your prosperity & profitability,
Your Virtual Marketing Coach

Everybody knows that saying "thank you" is good for business. But how good is it, really? Can customer appreciation really affect your bottom line? And what do you actually have to DO to show your clients that you appreciate them?
In this fast-paced and fun interactive masterclass, you'll learn:
why appreciation matters now more than ever
the five most profitable (and powerful) appreciation strategies
which wildly profitable strategy to roll out first
that one thing even your best clients hate about your business (wow!)
Lots of news to share, and I know you're busy so I will make this quick:
[DIY Members] Links to Access Meetings
One quick tip to make your life easier: When planning to attend a DIY meeting, I strongly recommend copying and pasting the access link into your calendar way before the meeting.
Because I can't help you with a link when meetings are already in progress. To stay present in the meetings, I don't look at my email, nor monitor Facebook or Messenger.
Bottom line: To avoid that last-minute panic of looking for the link or wondering where to find it, or worse, discovering that the DIY website is temporarily unavailable due to maintenance, grab it early.
[DIY Members] New Date for Appreciation Live Q&A
The live Q&A for the November marketing webinar is on Tuesday, November 24th at 10 AM Pacific. This meeting was originally planned for Monday the 23rd, but increased attendance at the Monday morning Action Calls made that schedule too tight for comfort.
[Premium Members] Group Marketing Coaching Wednesday
Are you loving the new, more convenient time for our monthly Group Marketing Coaching meetings? I am! Meet me for laser coaching + follow up (5 minutes + 90 seconds) at 11 AM Pacific (1 PM Central or 2 PM Eastern) on Wednesday.
"I wanted to take a quick minute to say thank you for all your advice on the call this morning. I feel very blessed to have you in my life and on my team with all your brilliant ideas and support.

"I enjoy and appreciate all the attention and the direction of the new Marketing Mastermind. I notice your added energy and focus and find value in it. Hearing the same things in different ways allows the information to integrate more fully. After listening to you, I am ever more understanding of the dance between listening and sharing. When you speak, there is the intertwining of your years of experience. I am gradually learning the various pieces that you put together so skillfully and gracefully. Then you top it off with your powerful strength of ideation." ~ Caron MacLane, Circle Coach & Consultant, www.CaronCircleCC.com

"I just finished my marketing plan. I can't believe how easy it was after your class...I can't believe I actually have a marketing plan put together. Good gracious, I'd read quite a few marketing books and took notes, but then all I had was a computer file with a lot of notes. Now, after your one-hour class--and the Friday deadline--I actually wrote it down and even went through some of those notes while I did it. Wow. I can't believe I did it! Thanks so much, Ronnie. You're terrific!" ~Julie McDonald Zander, Chapters of Life Memory Books, www.chaptersoflife.com
