As small business I research marketing tips, twitter, face book, HARO, …well you get the idea. I try to market my business within a tight budget. I’m always searching for “free” marketing. To be honest, I’m still not sold on twitter. It seems to me that everyone is “talking” but nobody is “listening”. This is only my opinion – what the heck do I know?
I decided it may be a good marketing “thing” to follow Yoko Ono. Hey, why not? I grew up with at least a week crush on John Lennon. Always love and still love John’s music. I grew up with the peace sign embroidered on my jeans. I may not wear the peace sign on my jeans anymore but I do believe and pray for peace. Peace in many ways. Back to Yoko-this morning I received a follow with a direct message from Yoko. Wow! But, as I read it I realized it is a message that is computer generated and goes out to zillions. That’s ok – I still liked receiving it. Don’t know why – just do.
I have always found Yoko to be a strange little thing but not someone to reckon with. This morning in “my 5 minutes of time for me,” I decided to think about Yoko. I found myself changing my views. What I like about Yoko is she has always been true to herself. She is not afraid to be different. I really like that. Yoko (I may be wrong) seemed to know herself at an early age. Many women seem to find themselves when the kids grow up. Then again Yoko never had to worry about paying bills – where the average woman does. The average woman cleans, take care of everybody and everything – and oh yeah – works. By the end of the day how can a woman be true to herself? She’s pooped out!
Ok – yes, I know back to Yoko! I followed my twitter message from Yoko. I went to her website, www.ImaginePeace.com and found Yoko’s QandA day. There was a question from Miamigirl2 asking: What are some of your beauty must-haves? I LOVED Yoko’s answer:
1) A picture of your loved ones: your mate and your children… always near your heart
2) A smile in the mirror when you wake up in the morning.
3) a big stretching before you put your clothes on in the morning.
4) a bottle of water to carry around so you don’t get dehydrated
5) a Kleenex so you don’t just sneeze in the air, so people around you at the time won’t get the full treatment!
6) a pencil and a paper so you can write down your sudden inspirations.
7) Anything that is uniquely yours must have beauty.
You have to admit her answer is great! Yes, my views on Yoko is- that I now have views on Yoko! I like her. Now if I can only get her to wear one of my Thought Waves Necklace! It would be cool – don’t you think? Reality - long shot!
I design my Thought Waves necklace to promote the wearer to choose what their thought waves may be. Everyone tells me so many different things – I enjoy listening. That’s exactly what I want them to do – think and enjoy.
