Compliments – #BEDM

Topic:Tell us about the best compliment you have ever received.

Nothing jumped into my mind for this topic, but then today 2 very complimentary things happened to me so I will talk about those!

I had a pretty important meeting at work at which I had to do a presentation about pretty much everything I do marketing wise for one of our websites. It went really well – the prospective customers even joke offered me a job which was nice, but what was even nicer was the way all 3 directors jumped in to say how they wouldn’t let me go! I’ve been feeling rather demotivated at work lately and hearing that they are happy with my work and grateful for it felt wonderful.
Before me, they didn’t have anyone doing this kind of work within the company, so they don’t actually understand everything I do, they just enjoy seeing the sales! But they all said they really learnt something today and were really interested in what I do, which is great to hear as it will make progressing and furthering the marketing activity easier if they understand why I am asking for more budget!

The second thing which happened was that the lovely Daire paid me the great compliment of passing on the Liebster blog award to me! She wrote in her post on Doing it the Open Way that my blog was like sitting down with the girls for a brew which I am over the moon about and I am pretty sure I wrote nearly every post whilst drinking a cuppa! (I am right now!) Thank you so much for this and I will definitely complete the post and pass it on over the weekend! :)

    In all fairness it could be because I always read your posts with tea in hand 😉
