I don’t often share personal information on my blog, but since having restarted to promote my business, people have been asking me what I’ve been up lately. So here it is, the short version about the appearance, quieter times and recent reemergence of Marketing 4 Health Inc.
Almost exactly 10 years ago, I started my own business, Marketing 4 Health Inc.Marketing 4 Health Inc., helping healthcare / pharma companies manage their social media. I was climbing the proverbial ‘success stairs’, sometimes it even felt like I was skipping a couple of steps at a time. Business was booming.
But about 4 years ago, I decided to intentionally slow down my business to take care of my growing family. Despite having 4 young children to raise at home, I kept at least a couple of clients on my roster at all times, but I knew that I could not handle any more than that, so I stopped all promotion of my services. I even wiped out my blog, which was a sad day for me because it was gaining so much traction from the Canadian pharmaceutical industry at the time. But frankly, putting my family first was the best decision ever and I would do it all over again. Ultimately, it was well worth the sacrifice.
Move forward to now, and the kids are finally all in school now, so I can spend more time tending to my business. Ah, it feels invigorating to be climbing up those stairs again. Even though my business kept going throughout all those years, a lot of things slowed down, so now I’m putting in the effort to get the ball rolling again. So far it’s been baby steps, and that’s OK because I am enjoying the challenge and the thrill of it all.
Right now, I’m excited to be in the process of networking to regain my spot in the healthcare / pharma social media / blogging world. If you know of somebody who is looking for an experienced blogger or social media manager who knows and understands the regulations of the healthcare / pharma industry, please send me an introduction to them either on LinkedIn or via email; firstname.lastname@example.org . I am eager to help my next clients reach their business goals!
Until then, let’s all keep climbing up those stairs together! Cheers!
