There is something special about sharing good news with people who really “get it.”
I spent the evening at a meeting of the Wisconsin Professional Speakers Association, and have been energized by a roomful of people who “get it.”
One of the best decisions I made in 2006 was to join a Mastermind group. Five of us get together once a month to help each other build our businesses. My favorite part is sharing Woo Hoos.
Mike Domirtz brought us the Woo Hoo. It is a simple, joyous expression of something good. Working from home, without co-workers or colleagues, it is hard to truly celebrate when something good happens. Sending out an e-mail Woo Hoo and getting responses from my group definitely makes it more special. We are all in the same boat and know the struggles. We can all celebrate together.
So, who can you Woo Hoo?
It’s not bragging. It is sharing part of yourself. No one understands the joy of putting away the diaper bag when the child has been potty trained better than another mom. Sometimes it takes someone in the same trench to truly understand.
Sending out a Woo Hoo invites the other person to Woo Hoo right back. Infuse a little positivity into your day – and share it with someone else!
Try it. E-mail it. It’s even fun to say.
