Day Twenty-Eight Of Your Daily Ten Minute Practice

Posted by terrepruitt on February 28, 2017

Last day.  I missed two more days.  I was gone this past weekend and I just forgot.  Out of my regular routine.  Trying to deal with dad stuff.  So much stuff to deal with, I just forgot.  Well, I got my Daily 10 Minute Practice in on Monday, and I plan to do it today.  But then again, I was planning on doing it Saturday and Sunday too . . . I hope you are doing well with it.  This IS the last day!  But perhaps you will be continuing . . . I’m gonna try.

I just have to get better at being “ok” with missing a day.  But not so ok that I just start skipping a lot of days.  There is a fine line, right?

Any plans to continue?

Day Twenty-Three Of Your Daily Ten Minute Practice

Posted by terrepruitt on February 23, 2017

Including today, only six day left for the Daily 10 Minute Practice.  Are you hanging in there?  Are you feeling good about it?  I know that, depending on what you are doing, ten minutes might not be enough so perhaps you took advantage of the practice and extended the time on a few occasions.  I know I did.  But then again, the next day when I thought, “Oh, I should do at least twenty minutes.”  Then it seemed more difficult to fit into my schedule.  Then I reminded myself that really, the “deal” was for ten minutes . . . then all of a sudden it seemed more do-able.  Crazy, huh?  Any of you feeling or have any of you felt that way?

Day Thirteen Of Your Daily Ten Minute Practice

Posted by terrepruitt on February 13, 2017

Ahh, I usually have Mondays off, but today I am subbing a class.  I will be teaching Nia when there is regularly Pilates.  I thought I would try Nia at the community center because this is the community center where I once taught gentle yoga and they wanted to know what Nia was.  Hopefully those that enjoyed the demo will show up and enjoy an entire hour of Nia.  So instead of Pilates at the Almaden Community Center today it will be Nia at 9:15am!

I will do my Daily 10 Minute Practice, after I get home.  We are on day thirteen.  When will you do yours?

Dance Exercise, Nia, Nia in the City of San Jose, Nia classes in the South Bay, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, San Jose Nia, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, Nia, Gentle Yoga, Group Ex classes, YMCA, Zumba, Nia Technique, SJ City Fit, SJCityFit

I haven’t marked off today, yet.  I will when I get it done.  🙂

Day Twelve Of Your Daily Ten Minute Practice

Posted by terrepruitt on February 12, 2017

Here we are day twelve of the Daily 10 Minute Practice.  Here is where you post your comment.  I don’t know if I will doing my “practice” before or after I teach Nia.  Today (Sunday, February 12, 2017) is my day to teach Nia at the NW YMCA in Cupertino.  There are three of us Nia teachers that teach the Sunday class on a rotating basis.  It is nice to have a Sunday class, but nice to not have to teach it every Sunday.  Perhaps I will see you there.

When are you going to do your 10 minutes?

Can You Spot The Marketing Mistakes?

Posted by terrepruitt on September 26, 2016

Marketing Gurus and People, can you see anything wrong with this e-mail?  Can you perhaps give Dan some advice?

I really don’t care for people telling me they can do things, such as this e-mail in which Dan claims his company has helped YYoga generate 1,000 new registrations in 48 hours.  Most of the time, just like with this e-mail, it is clear the person trying to get my business has not even taken the time to look at or read my website.  If Dan would have taken 60 seconds to read my website, he might have come to the correct conclusion that I am not a fitness center.  I do not own a fitness center.  He might have noticed that I am a Nia and yoga teacher that primarily works for the City of San Jose and the YMCA.  He might have concluded that I do teach at other places when I am hired to do so . . . and I can even do types of personal training be it Nia, Yoga, or something related to working out and exercise.  But I am not a fitness center.

I have people call me all the time to tell me they can “get me on page one of a Google search.”  I, of course, get excited   😉 and then I ask them, “For what?” and they can never answer me.  So, how can I put my faith in them to “get me on page one of a Google search” when they don’t even know what I do?  What search would that be the front page for?  And would I be at the TOP, the first one, on that front page or down at the bottom?  But they can’t even tell me what I do so they have no idea.  I know that unless you are Google calling me and I pay top dollar, I am not going to get on the front page for many searches.  But I also know that I AM on the first page when you “Google” certain things.  I just get very confused and frustrated by these people who waste my time.

If you are not going to do a little bit of research and actually try to sell something the person actually might need and something you can actually provide, then don’t bother.  You waste everyone’s time when you don’t know what you are talking about.

In the first e-mail Dan says that he helped a company generate 1,000 new registrations in 48 hours.  In the second one he says the company “acquired 1,000 new members in less than 48 hours”.  That really doesn’t mean anything either.  So what?  1000 new registrants.  Did they PAY something?  Or was this just a free registry?  How many actually signed up and paid for a service that the company offers?  Oh yes, out of 1000 people you would think something became of it, but what?  What does this e-mail even mean?

Also, he would “love to tell me more”?  Well, I would hope so because as I have already begun to say, he hasn’t really told me anything.  I mean, in addition to the useless information he provided, he didn’t provide me with a company name, a title, a phone number or anything.  Again, in my opinion, not a very good marketing person . . . I guess he feels since HE doesn’t do any research into his prospects they must not do any research into the companies they might consider talking to and working with.

I get this type of sub-par solicitation all the time.  It just blows my mind.  So, no, I don’t have 15 minutes for a call this week, when clearly you didn’t take 15 minutes to do some research.  But you know, perhaps Debbie does.  🙂

What do you Marketing People think?
