SERENDIPITY Quote of the day: “In reality, serendipity accounts for one percent of the blessings we receive in life, work and love. The other 99 percent is due to our efforts.” Peter McWilliams
I found out that I am in love with data. I love facts; favorable or unfavorable data. More than having the data, the knowledge to manipulate data is even more intriguing. When I started my photography business I couldn’t really afford the higher end shopping carts and client databases. Being the cost effect DIYer, I kept all of my data in Excel. I created a monster spreadsheet to do pretty much what other fulfillment companies offered, it just raw.
Now that I’ve become a coach, I felt the urge to build a wonder database of facts. I spent ALL night building a dashboard to show me a pretty view of all the stats and facts I’ve gathered. I was in nerd heaven. At the end of the day, and with plenty of Google and YouTube tutorials, I was pretty happy with what I had started to create. It still needed tweaking. On my very last search, I stumbled upon a guy who loves organized data too. He developed a dashboard for EXACTLY what I was trying to build – EXACTLY. At the eleventh hour of tinkering around with the format I was working on, I signed up for his newsletter and guess what? He GAVE the file to me for subscribing.
If you believe in what excites you and you put your all into it, God with give you the blessings you deserve. He has this wonderful ability to use as vessels to help others and position others to be a vessel to you.
