I’ve got a Marketer for my work! This has got more to do with my writing, but it needs a little bit of back-story first.
My long-term boyfriend left me on Labor Day weekend 2014. (I’m sure you all who have followed my posts were made ill by how I whined about that for a few months.) But as the verse goes; there is a time for all seasons. My new season began when I met my new boyfriend a year later.
While the old one helped a lot with my career expenses (which I needed at the time, but not now) – the new one has the old one beat because he’s better at everything! One thing I can mention here 😉 is; he’s retired and worked in marketing before retirement. Now he has nothing to do except market for me!
Oh sure. His past marketing was for manufacturers, but they were all start-up businesses, and that’s what Janette Harjo is – a start-up business. There’s a learning curve he’s on, but he’s taking it all in stride. :))
Here’s to bigger and better things!
I’m resistant to change, as my past relationship attests to. I’m so grateful for all the doors that have closed which enabled new ones to open for me! We all need to remember new doors will open for us. Sometimes my faith is just not strong enough. How about you?
I am so happy for both of you,Janette! It seems like a win-win situation with the new BF…you get professional marketing help and he feels useful, which is always important to anyone, but seems particularly necessary for men. Most men hate retirement if it means they no longer feel productive. Best of luck all the way around.
And my answer is YES, I seem to have 20/20 hindsight! Many things happened to me and if they aren’t necessarily for the best, then I can see that good has come from them. I came to such a revelation last night and I just may add that to my Friday post.
Great to have a promo-savvy loved one who also believes in your work!
I wish great success on this new partnership.
Change is always difficult. I’m glad the recent changes you’ve made in your life have made you happy. And having a marketing guru handy is a definite plus for an author!
Sounds like a nice guy and a perfect situation for both of you.
