Let's celebrate our successes.
Celebrate and be happy
I recently sent an email to 166 people who are in my life, either as friends, associates, networking connections or referral partners.  In other words, it is a group of people that I will support in their personal lives and business.  One of them is a mutual member of a networking group that we all joined to help and encourage the other members in their businesses.  This person marked my email as spam.  So I wondered, why is this person in a networking group that is committed to helping the other members, yet he not only didn't celebrate my success, he harmed my email reputation?  As far as I know, I never did anything to hurt this person's feelings or reputation, and would have helped him whenever I could.

 
Was I asking too much of him by sending an email that asked him to read my latest blog post?  Was there some marketing in it?  Of course.  I am in business, and I will share my successes and ask for your business.  Did I come on too strong?  Please let me know if I was out of line.  Here is the blog post: 
 
 
 
I will be sending out notes of positivity to dozens of people this week.  During this time of crisis and negativity, I will be spreading love.  So, if you know that I have your mailing address, don't be surprised if I send you a card in the mail.  If you think I don't have your mailing address, just send it to me, and I will mail you a card of love, gratitude, appreciation or encouragement.

Peace, joy and love to you.  Bob

Bob Willis Might not have been a personal, direct action. Spam filters can do strange things. And people's emails can be compromised really easily, so some people hit "spam" very conservatively, if there's any kind of link or attachment unless they expected either from the source. I understand your frustration - you are trying to do something quite worthwhile.
