Happy Tuesday from beautiful Montana. We woke this morning to a light dusting of snow that just set off the brilliance of the mountains against the dark colors of the evergreen forests.
Knowing that there are times in our day when we all need a little inspiration, I’m including a photo for you taken from my office this morning.
As it turns out, today was one of those days for me where I needed inspiration.
I started my day dealing with a lot of financial stuff- changing accounts over from one bank to another, changing our merchant account and just “stuff” like that. The bank was anything but cooperative. Why is it they’re so much more eager to assist you when you want to give them money then when you want to close an account? After two hours I was still getting the runaround, with my merchant account rep at Wells Fargo telling me I had to close it with Merchant Services, and Merchant Services telling me I had to close it with the Wells Fargo rep. Frustrating.
I found myself in need of inspiration and turned to my Twitter family. I tweeted that I needed inspiration, which was quite backwards from my normal tweets. In fact, I think this is the only time I reached out looking for inspiration rather than providing it.
You were there, offering virtual hugs, recommending a cup of cocoa with whipped cream suggesting I call on my “bank angels”, and making me smile. Thank you for that.
Your kindness made me think… are we giving you what you need? We built InspireMeToday.com to provide the best inspiration each day. As you know, each day we bring you 500 word of wisdom from an Inspirational Luminary. Additionally, you get my blog and my tweets. Once a week you get an interview from some amazing person. We have mastermind groups and mentoring programs available too.
We’ve intentionally kept the content on InspireMeToday.com FREE so that it’s accessible to anyone, anytime, anywhere.
How is this working for you? How can we serve you better? What do you like and where can we improve?
Our plans for 2010 include making some of our mentoring products available through e-books, webinars, teleseminars and in-person weekend seminars. I’m happy to speak at your events throughout the world.
Additionally, you’ll start to see inspired products featured on the bottom of your morning email from us and some select advertising on the site. In order to keep the content FREE for you, we need to get creative to generate income from other sources, in order to pay the bills.
Bottom line is this- we LOVE what we do. We’re grateful to be your source for inspiration, encouragement and love. Thank you for allowing us into your home and into your heart.
I look forward to hearing back from you and listening to your suggestions on how we can serve you better. We all need a little inspiration and I’m grateful for the opportunity to be a part of your world.
With gratitude and hugs,

I read your blog post and have looked at your different offerings. I may be missing some, but I think there may be a price gap in what is available. All of your site content is free and I understand you desire to offer this inspiration to everyone. The next step to getting help from you or learning from you appears to be $500.00 and then another 10x jump. If you could break up your program, or offer ways to learn for $50 – $100 to begin, this may fill a gap. I know this is a business response to your questions, but I am sure that with the large following, many would like to get more insight from you but most people (human nature) start in small increments and work their way up.
This may not have been what you were looking for, but it was what I was thinking about since I read your post. Thanks for your heart to provide this content!
Sue, THANK YOU! This is exactly what I was asking for. I asked, listened and you answered. I will now go create that exact product for you and have it up soon. I sincerely appreciate your response. Thank you again for being such a valued part of the our community.
Dear Gail you are an angel. Free hugs to you!! Do I really need to purchase a $500.00 program from you just to learn about how to better my fellow man, “Mentoring”? The price is a bit steep~~~~ Best regards, Joanne in Ohio
Joanne, I appreciate your comments. No worries, we have a lot of good things coming soon- and they’re very affordable. We sincerely want to make a difference and help as many people as we can. I greatly appreciate your taking the time to write to me. Thank you!
