Since around 2013, I’ve had a mantra that came from a dream. In the dream, I was chanting “Day one, day one, day one, day one,” over and over and over. It was so blurred together that it sounded more like a song. When I woke, I knew there was a great idea buried in that dream. Every day is Day One.
One way to get unstuck and get into action is to let go of your negative self-talk around when you fall down. A personal example for me is that I’ve been super heavy, then lost a lot of weight, and then gained it back. I recently put almost 50 pounds back on (thanks, depression!).
I have two ways to act. I can either make myself feel bad about that, or I can get to work. I chose to get to work. I’ve already lost 15 pounds of that weight and am back on track to get it all handled.
There are probably many “Day One” moments in your life and business. Areas where you’ve made mistakes, where you’ve fallen down, where you chose a bad path. True?
Action: Start the Day One Process. The process is easy. Every time you’re about to punish yourself internally for something you’ve done or not done, repeat this: “Day one, day one, day one, day one, day one,” until that voice is drowned out. Forgive yourself. And then take action.
We waste far too much time stuck. It’s day one.
Wow! Lots of changes. First, we have built a whole new site (using Rainmaker) for our primary home base on the web. Owner Media Group exists to help you use content and community to earn more customers. I thought I’d explain a bit about us, about where we are, what we do for you, and clear up any questions you might have.
Who Is Owner Media Group?
That’s a good question. I’m Chris Brogan, CEO. Rob Hatch is President. Ron Hood is our Special Events Coordinator. Beyond that, we work with a varied team of contractors, partners and allies. We are a media and education company based legally out of Massachusetts, with 1/3 of the team located there, 2/3 of the team (and our mailing address) located in southern Maine. There’s no longer a headquarters office. It was weird because people didn’t really come visit us much, so why leave the house simply to go sit at another desk in another building?
What Does Owner Media DO?
We sell courses and other products to help people grow their capabilities and connections. The majority of our business is that. On top of that, I speak professionally as well as do limited consulting with organizations around business and marketing advisory and strategy work. Rob Hatch offers limited coaching (email rob at owner dot media for that), as well.
Who Is the Right Buyer?
We sell to people who consider themselves owners of their life and business, no matter their title. Everyone from the starting employee to the CEO to the entrepreneurial souls of all ages who are out there working hard are who we serve. You could be a corporate person. You could run a pawn shop. Maybe there’s only you in the company or maybe you work with 65,000 close friends. Most of what we offer works well as business-to-consumer, but also translates nicely to business-to-business, as that’s what WE are, a small B2B company.
What Do You Sell?
Over the past few years we’ve offered courses and webinars to people growing some aspect of their business. We’re selling our most popular programs:
Online Course Maker – Stop trading hours for dollars and learn how to deliver a quality digital course to the people you serve.
Coming Soon:Earn More Customers – Improve your content marketing, your online presence, your email marketing, and more to be able to earn the right to sell and serve better.
Coming Soon:Content Marketing Mastery – From blogging to email marketing to podcasting and beyond, learn how to create actionable business opportunities, and not just “make content.”
Work Like you’re On Vacation – A proven productivity framework to help you get more done. Created by Rob Hatch.
Plus, I’ve written over 8 books and counting, if you’d like to check out my books.
What Else Do You Do?
Beyond our courses, Rob Hatch and I both write a great weekly newsletter, and I host the Owner’s Mind online radio show. I also appear all over the world on stages and at corporate and association events. I’m a frequent guest on many varied podcasts and blog interviews. Every now and again, I even speak to the nice folks in the mainstream media.
Above All Else
We’re here to serve. We work with owners like you to help you grow your business by teaching you how content and community can earn you more customers. If you ever have a question, drop us a line. Beyond that, we’re just glad you’re here.
