Full Episode Transcript

>> It’s time to take your business to the next level, the BOSS level! These are the premier business owner strategies and successes being utilized by the industry’s top talent today. Rock your business like a BOSS, a VO BOSS. Now let’s welcome your host Anne Ganguzza.

Anne: Hey everyone. Welcome to the VO BOSS podcast. I’m your host, Anne Ganguzza, along with the amazing Ms. Pamela Muldoon. Hey Pamela.

Pamela: Hello Anne. [laughs]

Anne: Oh my gosh, I’m a little bit crazy today. You know, Pamela, among all of the other things I try to do every single day –

Pamela: You’re a busy lady.

Anne: Yeah.

Pamela: You have a lot going on.

Anne: I’ve been trying to be really good about creating a blog post every week. And I was really good for maybe a small amount of time, but I’m finding it very tough to keep it consistent. And I’ll tell you what, I was actually getting some really good results. Like people were responding well when I was consistent and posting my blog once a week. It was great, and now I’ve kind of lost it. And I think maybe it’s something we can talk about in terms of how BOSSes handle tasks in trying to grow their business, and the fact that the consistency aspect that I found to be so right for my business and really helped me to grow my business, I think we should talk about that.

Pamela: I would love to. I would love to talk about consistency.

Anne: Yeah.

Pamela: My guess is that you were seeing a really nice uptick, kind of an exponential uptick of activities.

Anne: I was, I was.

Pamela: And then you stopped, and then you probably saw it go off a cliff.

Anne: Pretty much.

[Pam laughs]

Anne: I feel like such a loss actually because I’m like every day all I can think about is the fact that I have not updated my blog. And it just, it’s like a concept like “Anne, come on. You know, you’ve got to get it together.” And it’s not a good feeling, actually.

Pamela: No.

Anne: You know? [laughs] So.

Pamela: It’s funny, we almost, it’s almost like a form of self-guilt, right, that kind of creeps in, yeah.

Anne: I know, I beat myself up over it.

Pamela: I would like to talk about that. I think it’s probably one of the most powerful parts of the marketing process or even just business in general is creating consistency on important tasks, or important tasks that make up a bigger objective or goal. There’s a lot of logic to it, but for some reason, without that accountability or holding our feet to the fire, man, creating new habits, creating new consistency and routine, one of the most challenging things to do.

Anne: Very much need time management here.

Pamela: Yeah.

Anne: To help me with that. I find though I’ll say, you know, one thing for sure is that, one thing that keeps telling me I have failed to yet post my blog again is the fact that I use a calendar. I pretty much live and die by my calendar right now.

Pamela: Yes.

Anne: I really feel that if I didn’t schedule something into the calendar, it just can’t get done. What are your thoughts about that?

Pamela: I think there’s a lot of truth to that, absolutely. It’s, if you don’t write it down, it doesn’t exist kind of philosophy. Right? And I think too, when you think about all the activities, because everything, when you were to open your calendar, you tell yourself everything is important. I think it’s also taking a look at all of the tasks and kind of asking yourself, how does this get me to where I want to go, right?

Anne: Sure.

Pamela: How does this activity drive to something bigger, or that type of thing, or even doing like the opposite, right? Like you want to create some kind of bigger objective with say your blog practice, right, or tactic, and then coming back to that daily routine is going to help you get there. It could be a combination, right, of not only writing it down, make sure it’s in the calendar, but also having that big goal in front of you to see what you’re trying to push towards, if that makes sense. Yeah.

Anne: You know what, Pam? This is like an epiphany for me, because what I do have in the calendar is the fact that I need to publish the blog every week. I have a different day of the week, and it says publish blog. However, I realize hello! that I’ve not scheduled time in my calendar to actually work on it on a daily basis or whenever I can.

Pamela: The publishing is the easy part, Anne. [laughs] It’s called clicking a button.

Anne: You got to have the content to publish. And so wow, Pamela, such a simple thing, but I do need to allocate time for that.

Pamela: Right.

Anne: And I think my whole, in my brain, if it’s not on the calendar, I just don’t have time for it. But I’ll tell you, I think I can squeeze in some time, even if it’s like, I don’t know, maybe 30 minutes a day. I think over the course of time, I would be able to really get something done. I want to make sure I’m not o
