March Launch?

The year is already starting to fly by. Now if spring would just catch up with it.

With today being March 1st, I feel the pressure of my site building. I am still completely floored at the extremely poor business manners I have been dealing with. How can you succeed in life in general with such poor manners, follow though, and so on? I am pretty sure it is not just me.
I think the positive that has come from all of this is I have been teaching myself how to build a website and other aspects that I may have waited to learn. In the end you can really only count on yourself in business, especially when it’s your business.
My next business rant is on Communication: People email me, want me to email back, schedule times to email, Text or just Facebook or Tweet them. Honestly, I don’t think I can ever get 100% use to that. I think when doing business deals there should be an actual conversations, real face to face or webcam meetings and then follow up emails. I met a Business Coach that runs most of her business though technology. If I am paying you a lot of money per hour or session (I’m not, just saying) I want to “talk” to you, not read from you, Facebook with you, and I don’t even know how to Tweet, the word alone disturbs me. Even as I say that I know it is a possibility that I will one day need a business Twitter account. Not happily, but I will do what I have to do to ride the successful business wave.

My Launch date for the site is mid March, providing I can figure out what the heck I’m doing. It has been a huge learning curve. I have owned my own business before, and was fairly successful, but I was too young to see what I had. I know what kind of people I don’t want working for me, and know that the lower the overhead the higher the profit. I didn’t know that last time.
I am a big reader, love books. I also love recommendations for books. I have been really reading a lot of business and marketing books lately, and anyone reading this who has read a good motivating business book, feel free to share.
