Business Evolvement & New Website

Welcome

Over the past 3 months my business has evolved and in that time so many new things have taken place …. here is what I learned and hope it is of some value to you.

  1. Website – I stopped procrastinating and joined ‘Mission for March’ via Female Entrepreneur Association to complete my website in a month.  Much back and headache later, I managed to build and develop my website, as well as develop and link all social media.
  2. Venue, Photographer and Filming – booked the venue (full payment only due 2 weeks before the event!) then began talking to Photographers and borrowing film equipment for us to use.
  3. Business Start-up Event– Next came altering/refining my original Business Start-up Seminar slides to include new material, following our workbook relating to the business.
  4. Meetup Group – then set up a meetup group to deliver partial content of my main Workshops, Seminars, Retreats, reaching people who cannot make it to my events.
  5. Other Courses and Retreats – This was the fun part, deciding what to teach, where and when due to a phenomenal amount of shared material in Business Finance, Wealth and Health …. this is on-going.
  6. Setback – Five weeks ago we had a bit of a setback with illness, coughs turned into colds, laryngitis and bronchitis. Along with that, I had a few ‘technical’ issues, now resolved.  Although nearly recovered, I did lose momentum, thankfully the venue was able to put the event back a month – make sure you don’t have to pay deposits with venues – this has given me some breathing space for promotion.
  7. Promotion – So now in full steam ahead with promotion, constant until just before the event in July.

Someone recently reminded me about my training last year where we learned about Expansion and Contraction and I suddenly realised that the reason I became so ill was due to the rapid and huge Expansion in taking my business to the next level and the stress involved (even though it did not seem that stressful).

Contraction generally manifests itself in illness, injury or a family crisis – so I offer some words of wisdom to be mindful of this when you decide to step up with your business.

Until next time, have a great week.
