Two Must Make Don’t Break Resolutions

    Voyageur Canoe Outfitters

    Many people make New Year’s Resolutions and almost as many break them within the first month.  Some resolutions aren’t concrete enough others are unrealistic and yet others don’t allow for countability.  I want all of my readers to feel the success and satisfaction of making and keeping two New Year’s Resolutions.

     The first resolution I want you to make is to comment positively on Voyageur Canoe Outfitters Trip Advisor page in January.  This is a concrete, realistic resolution that everyone can hold you accountable for because if you don’t do it then we’ll all know.  Maybe you’ve only used one of our canoes for a day. If it was in good shape then let others know.

     Why should you make this resolution? Because it is doing something nice for someone else and it will result in you feeling good.  Believe me, I’ve written reviews and it always makes me feel better knowing I might be helping a small business make it in these tough economic times.  Competition is stiff and Trip Advisor is a popular place for people planning vacations to look for suggestions. 

The second resolution I want you to make is to visit Voyageur Canoe Outfitters in 2011.  As a loyal blog reader you are important to me and I’d love for you to visit us this year.  Maybe it’s just a drive up from Grand Marais to pop in and say,  "Hello."  It could be for a winter vacation, a summer canoe trip or a fall cabin stay it really doesn’t matter to me what you do once you get here it’s just making the committment and following through with it that matters. 

      Why should you make this resolution?  Pretty much for the same reason as the first resolution.  Primarily because it will make you feel good.  Just taking the leisure drive from Grand Marais to the end of the Gunflint Trail provides time for nature and reflection.  There are many benefits to spending time in the wilderness so it’s something you can do for yourself and for us.  It’s supporting a small business that you obviously care about or you wouldn’t be reading this blog.

     There you have it.  Your two New Year’s Resolutions for 2011 that you must not break. They are specific, measurable, positive and easy resolutions.  After commenting on Trip Advisor when you visit us in 2011 be sure to tell the folks in the store it’s part of your New Year’s Resolution and as a reward for keeping your resolution we’ll buy you a beverage. 

     I’ll be holding you all accountable on these resolutions so get going, you can do it!
