Whose Advice Do You Listen To?

You're writing your booklet, getting it produced, and marketing it. Everyone in your world has opinions about every step of what you're doing with it, and that's after you get outside of your own personal "committee" in your head :-)

It can be hard to know who to listen to along the way. Some people have no particular experience in the context (or content) that you're exploring. Other people feel they know it all. (aww c'mon, you must have at least one person in your life like that. I have a few I can pass along to you if you don't.) Then there's the ones who have been there, done that, and know whereof they speak.

We're talking about everything from the content of your booklet, the writing style, how it's organized, the kind of paper, the colors, including photography, who to market it to, how to market it, what terms to give clients, and on, and on, and on.

Like anything else in life, no one person has all of the answers. One person may seem to have lots or most of them. NO ONE has ALL of them. Go with your gut. Pick the best of what feels right to you from each source along the way. Make your own best decisions, and realize there is nothing you can't change on the next go-around. When all is said and done, listen to yourself!

Until next time,
Paulette - who asks people for input, accepts the parts that work best, and continues tweaking

I listen to everyone!
I guess the real question is whose advice should I act on (besides yours of course!)
