Yesterday, we stumbled on Seth Godin’s question “What if you stopped?“, and….
…we did stop for a minute to think about it.
What if we stopped publishing Improvised Life?
What would happen to your audience if you shut the doors tomorrow? ...
What would happen to your customers and to your prospects if you stopped doing your work?
If you stopped showing up, if you stopped selling them something, would they miss you if you were gone?
If the airline went away, we’d just find another airline. If the cookie cutter politician went away, we’d just vote for someone else. If the typical life insurance agent…
Does it matter if it’s you doing the work?
Judging from the emails we get, we know that a good number of people would miss us. We hear daily that Improvised Life is an essential reminder to practice thinking differently, that it has helped many readers shift how they view aspects of their lives, especially the difficult ones. We also know that we are not for everyone. And that the “market” will determine how long, and in what form, we continue. Nothing is for “always”.
Although we LOVE making Improvised Life, we live with the possibility of not publishing because of the financial realities of keeping going. To live, we need both $$ AND to grow our readership.
Want Improvised Life to keep publishing? There are many ways to help (some of them may surprise you):
—Become a member if you aren’t yet one, OR renew your subscription.

—Pass on articles you read to people who may not know about us, via email, Twitter or your own Facebook.
—Like our Improvised Life’s Facebook page (you don’t have to be a member of FB to do it).
—Sign up for our daily email.
…please keep letting us know what you think, want, don’t like, love…
