The thoughts, work and ideas of Liam Dempsey

An Ongoing Worksite

This happy little website serves as a testing ground and play area for me. While the content is always 'real', the design and functionality vary from time to time as I often play with ideas here. I do so on a 'live' site so as to encourage myself to make the changes quickly.

Know your limits

Pistachos, beer mug and Victory beer bottles

As a small business owner, I set myself a pretty aggressive online marketing schedule. I spend a lot of time promoting the business, trying to sell our services.

However, sometimes I have to give my marketing schedule a pass. As a small business, I can respond to only so many curve balls and tasks in a week. And frankly, this week had me running. As Friday afternoon rolls in, and having been at my desk since 3.00 am this morning, I have decided to take a slightly more Jimmy Buffett approach to this post: beer and pistachios. I know my limits, and my limits have been reached.

Yep, I am not meeting my inbound marketing task for the week, but I am doing so as a calculated decision. Other business efforts took higher priority this week. I’ll will be back to normal broadcasting next week.

    Yes indeed. We must all remember to work to live, not live to work. Fridays were invented for just this sort of a snack. Good going Liam!

    Excellent mantra — Work to live and not vice versa.

    Now refreshed after the weekend, I am ready to jump back into it.
