Rise and Shine is my way of sitting down and having a cup of coffee with you! We talk about the new deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help us save time, money or energy. Published Monday through Friday – as I’m able.
Good morning! TGIF! I am having a major case of the “oh look at that shiny thing. . .” this morning. That’s when I get distracted at every shiny thing I see instead of focusing on my Rise and Shine (the shiny thing I should be focused on). You know it all started with a funny Facebook video (tell me you’ve seen the NFL lip-reading video for 2015) and then I move on to an urgent email, a salivating Pinterest recipe, a phone call, a coffee break, a text message. . . you get the idea. I. am. all. over. the. place. this morning. Please tell me I’m not the only one this happens to!?
So, dear friend, let’s talk. I am trying to sketch out what 2015 should look like as far as the Queen Bee site goes. My number one compass over the years – and this hasn’t ever changed is – does this benefit my readers? If so – let’s do it. If not – no way! To make sure I’m answering this question correctly – I want to hear from you directly. I want to hear about what benefits you most. And I want to hear how I can help you more. This site is as much yours as it is mine – so please take a few minutes to fill out this survey and share your thoughts and ideas about how I can serve you better (if you want, read my full post about the survey here).
Your answers on the survey are confidential. But if you’d like, you can enter your name and email at the end of the survey and you’ll be entered for a chance to win a $50 Amazon gift card. I’m giving away FOUR (4) $50 Amazon gift cards (awarded randomly) – because this survey is important to me and I value your time.
And to all of you who completed the survey yesterday – THANK YOU – I really appreciate it. I hired a consultant to help me run the survey – to make sure I didn’t screw it up – and she is so impressed with the number of responses we’ve already received. Even though I can’t take any credit for the responses we received yesterday – I admittedly did feel like a proud mom – like, yep, that’s because my readers rock. 🙂
