Reinventing the Wheel...

I have been working on growing my website, and expanding the reach of my Blog, and Personal Brand (as well as ascertaining EXACTLY what that is); via Researching, and Following, and Friending, and sending out one round of Emails to the list I am trying to build.

Frankly, I have been "pedaling as fast as I can", for quite awhile. I am a hoarder of physical items, as well as virtual items. (You should see my infinite Pinterest boards.) This. Is. Getting. Exhausting.

I have also been doing some reading, yes research; but with the intent of trying to catch myself as I run past!!! In doing all this, I have lost my F.O.C.U.S. - which is:
Focusing
On
Connie...
Useful
Stuff
-in my quest to figure stuff out. It stops/starts here!!!

BINGO!!! On April 29, 2019, at approximately 12:10pm (est), I passed myself, on the stairs, no less (if you know me, this is kind of hysterical!!!), but I digress. I said, out loud, "Well, there's no need to reinvent the wheel. How can I utilize the information from those that have gone on, before me?"

Some of the people in mind, are: Daryl K Hersh - my Counselor, Friend, and Mentor; which I do have direct access to.
Erma Bombeck - she shared such WISDOM, most of which is timeless; which is good, as she is NO longer with us.
Delilah - who has NOT been soothed by that voice over the radio, that feels like the two of you are just hanging out??!

Some more recent inspirations, are:
Rachel Hollis - need I say more? If you have not checked out one of her books, I recommnd it, ASAP - her ENERGY just oozes from it - inspiring!!!
Brene' Brown - HELLO??! Her Shame and Vulnerability TED talks, and books are AMAZING!!!

I COULD go on listing MY  inspirations; but it would be counterproductive to my goal; which part of it is: I do NOT want to end up with my own "Jurassic Park" - "...standing on the shoulders of those that have gone on before...not asking if we should...". GREAT life analogy!!!

In short, NOT reinventing the wheel...wish me luck!!! If you have any insights, or ideas, please message me either here, or beamererin@yahoo.com. Would LOVE to hear what you think.

Have a good day, and be safe!!!
