As I Go: Feedback is a Beautiful Thing

I don’t mean that silly noise on stage music feedback. I mean idea feedback. I put out ideas or services or products, or silly pictures – and the world (or my sister) gives me feedback. Feedback is likes, comments, emails and calls saying – um what were you thinking, or I LOVE it.

(excuse me while I go use lethal force on severely reprimand the cat for making a ruckus during NAP TIME)

Where was I? Oh right, feedback.

I have this usually bad habit of waiting until things are ‘perfect’ before sharing them. Sometimes it’s a good thing to wait until things are done or mostly done before we put them out into the world and subject our ideas and plans to feedback from people who didn’t share vacations and car rides with us as children and only want what’s best for us. But it’s also nice to share the process of things. I think in the long run, the transparency is good for us all and will help us make better ideas, services, products AND silly pictures in the end.

So, that being said I’m going to try and be less ‘perfect’ with my posts. Oh there will still be lots of the Dude, don’t worry. There is a lot going on with my business, a lot of new ideas coming out and new plans and I’d love to share it all with you as I go.

For example, I am currently in the middle of editing the last 3 videos of my new series that I (with help from several awesome people) am creating to help moms and women in general look great in their family photos. In all photos, actually. It’s a focus I have started this year. I want to find out what problems/issues/overwhelming fears my clients are having in regards to having their families photographed – and I want to solve those problems. Number one on the list is helping mom look better. Because if mom looks good – everyone looks good. =)

I’m really excited to share the videos with you all and I’ve received some great early feedback from my expert field testers – you know who you are.  I’m still trying to decide how to share them all with you though. I’m thinking of doing a video channel, as well as posting them here on the blog/Facebook – but I was also thinking of letting folks sign up to get them via email. I would LOVE some feedback on this.

How would you like to get the videos? Just so you know ‘Season 1″ has 7 videos ranging from 3ish to 7ish minutes long (the one on eye makeup is super detailed and helpful so I kept it kind of long). Please leave me a comment and let me know how you’d prefer to get the videos.

And just to give you a little more info, here’s a sample of what’s covered in the Season 1 video series: makeup tips to help you look awake, super easy hair help, tips on the best types of jeans/tops/fabrics etc to wear and even some awesome tips on putting together outfits to save yourself time. There is so much information. I’m so happy to be able to do this. And if I get enough good Feedback, I’m planning on continuing to make videos that answer questions and help solve problems submitted by you.

I’m working on a few other video ideas that I’ll share more about soon.

I hope you all have a great day!

Thank you!
