How many of you were taught as children to not brag because it isn’t polite? I certainly was. I would have received a stern look from my Mom for doing so and maybe worse (depending on how obnoxious my bragging episode was! 🙂
So we grow up thinking this and go through life never really celebrating our accomplishments to the full. This is counterproductive in our business life. Because we are each working diligently to build a successful business, we may take for granted the small (or even large) success that we enjoy each day because we’re so focused on our laundry list of “to-do”. And because we’ve been trained not to brag about ourselves, we don’t even stop to acknowledge our progress or pat ourselves on the back.
So, I am here today to give you unconditional permission to brag! Yes, that’s right! I want to hear ALL about your recent accomplishments, large or small! (I truly believe there is no such thing as a “small” accomplishment.) Inspire the other members of the Smart Simple Marketing community! Inspire me! Tell us how about your brand new client! That you’ve finally figured out how to use Facebook! That you’re launching a new website! Or anything else you want to share. I want all the juicy details! 🙂
I’ll love it and applaud you and so will the community members! It’s high time we started celebrating our accomplishments in a big way.
So step on up! Who’s first?

We allow our clients to sleep at night by providing QuickBooks and Accounting support to small business owners. I have spent the last year and a half trying to figure out how to write procedures so that my staff can provide the same high quality predictable work that I do so well. I am excited to anounce that I am just finishing up some minor details of this project. Testing shows these are working very well. This will allow us to take on a large amount of new clients and still provide quality service to our clients.
