Ask questions, retain the information and use it seasonal. Learn when to send emails, text messages, paper communications, depending on what you are trying to accomplish with your audience and your goals. Less can be more, depending on where you place your message(s). Be as focused as you need to be, but spread your net as wide as you need to, if you need to draw in a new crowd and have the budget to do so.
Keep your notes and ideas to yourself, and under wraps, until you are ready to put them to work for you. Be sure to put them to work for you, think them through, be well balanced and to think them through, from ever side, to ensure that they are balanced. Enable every aspect of a plan first, by beta and alpha testing it first, in every way possible, before enacting it. Have others do so as well, to ensure it’s long term success as well, but also be sure to limit their risk by doing all of the important risks yourself first and foremost.
Lastly, ensure that you have those you trust the most in reserve, to keep them out of harms way. Have you family, friends and loved ones at bay. Keep those that you do business with informed and well versed in what is going on and about you. By doing so they will understand what is occurring and so that they can make risk assessments quickly and clearly, should you require their guidance.
