I just spent the last 8 days with my adorable 2 year old niece. What a handful! Kids are pretty resilient and amazing at observing new things every day…just what I love about online marketing, I thought, something new every day!
Here are 5 lessons to take away from even the youngest members of society:
5. That Baseball will leave a mark!
Lesson: Be careful what you say or do online. It’s pretty permanent. Choose your words wisely and don’t go around bashing others. Not only does it help to advertise them but it also causes distrust in your work and reputation.
4. Curiosity did not kill this cat.
Lesson: It’s an amazing thing to be curious and have a constant yearning to learn more. As adults we some times lose or stray away from our un-abandoned sense of curiosity. My recommendation, always remain curious and keep a passion for something. And if you fall remember to get back up.
3. A 2-year-old’s voice is louder than 200 adults in a crowded restaurant.
Lesson: No one likes a loud mouth bragger…unless you are bragging about the qualities of someone else. Think about it, when was the last time that you shared something great about someone else. The more you share without beating people over your head with your message the more people will come back to you for information because unlike the two year old, it’s not cute when you shout.
2. When you hear the toilet flush and the words “uh-oh” it is already too late.
Lesson: A good sense of humor will get you through most problems in life.
1. Learn something new every day.
Lesson: It’s pretty clear! Make it a personal goal to notice something new each day. Follow a new person on Twitter, join a new network group, read a new blog…whatever it takes…do it! It keeps you young
