Helloooo, Team! 3 VERY IMPORTANT THINGS are happening this week. Hint: Don't miss #3.
But first, how was your week? I hope it was great! Mine's been...well--
HELP! I'm sinking!
Can you throw me a life raft?
My brain is swirling with things to do and ideas. Your input has been really valuable.
The book launch process has stirred up a lot of creativity, which is GREAT! I started implementing some ideas anda handful of projects. Things were going along swimmingly, and then....
Houston, we have a problem.
This week, I looked at my TO-DO list and schedule and realized that I am way over my head!
And I can't see the forest for the trees. Have you ever been there?
Sometimes, it is really helpful to bounce ideas off of others.
Thus, the FIRST VERY IMPORTANT THING is to help me prioritize.
Which of these do you think is most valuable to HELP PEOPLE while also CREATING AWARENESS OF CITY FARMING?
- Quick tutorials on the YouTube channel that point back to City Farming.
- Free online or email course on Container Gardening taken partially from content in City Farming.
- Free online or email course on 5 Keys to Starting a Garden.
- Sequel to City Farming or a course that walks people step-by-step through the process of designing a garden or urban farm.
- Sequel to City Farming or course that helps backyard farmers to earn a profit from the products that they grow or create.
- OTHER. What the heck am I missing? What should I be doing that is obvious to you, but obviously not obvious to me?
Do any of these resonate with you? Really quickly, off the top of your head, post me a note in the COMMENTS.
The second VERY IMPORTANT THING is the Week 6 Challenge.
Please share one or both of the following:
Share the City Farming promo video with some sort of personal blurb, such as "Check out the book my friend Kari Spencer wrote and get her urban farming tips at CityFarmingBook.com" or "Can't wait for this book! Check it out at CityFarmingBook.com." The YouTube link is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Woc-uvocSDA.
Share "The People of City Farming" on social media, on a web page or in a blog post. You can preface by saying something like "Meet my friends the Spencers and check out their amazing urban farm" or "Have you been dreaming of growing your own food? Here's what one family created in their backyard."
And now, the third VERY IMPORTANT THING!
You all have been waiting patiently for Advance Reader Copies (ARCs) of City Farming. I am INCREDIBLY EXCITED to announce that I have them in hand and will be mailing them out to the first 20 Launch Team members next week. You will get an email from me if you are getting a physical copy so that you can be on the lookout.
It pains me that I only have 20 physical copies to mail. I AM WORKING WITH THE PUBLISHER TO GET DIGITAL COPIES FOR EVERYONE ON THE TEAM. The publisher is fussy about the intellectual property (which I totally understand.) So digital copies must be delivered securely and only in part (meaning I can't just email you a link to the entire book.)
I have been updating the 5m marketing team and extolling your praises, so I am confident that we will make digital copies happen asap!
Way to go, team! You ROCK!
To recap, help me narrow down ideas, share the video or the PDF, and be on the lookout for ARCs. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
P.S. Don't forget to leave me a comment below. Gracias!
