Whether you're a long-time member or brand new to our community, I want to extend a warm welcome to all of you. We're delighted to have you here. In these bi-weekly newsletters, I always search for interesting and fun holidays to share and celebrate with you. Recently, I hit a bit of a roadblock when it came to finding something exciting. I almost gave up, but today, I had a change of heart and decided to give it another shot. After all, why not, right? To my initial disappointment, I still couldn't find anything particularly fascinating. However, on closer inspection, I noticed an abundance of events involving the word "first." Take a look for yourselves; there are even more than I'm listing here!
On this day:
- 1948 - The School of Performing Arts opened in New York City. It was the first public school to specialize in performing arts.
- 1948 - Margaret Chase Smith was elected to the U.S. Senate and became the first woman to serve in both houses of the U.S. Congress.
- 1959 - The Soviet Union's Luna 2 became the first space probe to reach the moon.
- 1970 - The first New York City Marathon took place. Fireman Gary Muhrucke won the race.
- 1977 - The first diesel automobiles were introduced by General Motors.
Frankly, there's some pretty intriguing history here. As someone who often looks for deeper meaning in events, it's heartening to see all the significant occurrences that have taken place on this day throughout history. Many of these endeavors carried substantial risks, but here's the inspiring part: they all happened, and we continue to talk about them to this day. None of these accomplishments would have been possible without taking that initial step.
So, what I'm trying to convey is this: Today marks the first day of the rest of your life. Regardless of the risks involved, regardless of the size or significance of the "first" in your life, seize the opportunity and go for it!

Feeling like you’re losing momentum making sales?
Try some of these unconventional tips:
- The Art of Non-Selling: Instead of focusing solely on selling, become a resource hub for your customers. Offer valuable information, tips, and insights related to the tattoo industry, care, and trends. When you establish yourself as an expert and a trusted source, customers are more likely to turn to you when they're ready to make a purchase.
- Reverse Engineering Success: Share success stories and testimonials from satisfied customers, but with a twist. Instead of focusing on the end result, delve into the journey. Highlight the challenges they faced, the solutions they found using Mad Rabbit Tattoo products, and how they transformed their tattoo experience. This approach can resonate deeply with potential customers, showcasing the transformative power of our products.
- Reverse Q&A: Encourage your followers to ask you questions about Mad Rabbit Tattoo products, the tattoo industry, or anything related. This flips the script and allows you to share valuable information in response to their inquiries, indirectly showcasing the benefits of our products.
Remember, your journey as a Mad Rabbit ambassador isn't just about sales; it's about building a meaningful connection with your audience. Utilizing our premade social templates and taking on our challenges can help you do just that. These tools not only simplify your content creation but also provide unique opportunities to engage with your followers, ultimately growing your influence within our community.
