In honor of small business week (#SBW2014):
You are a juggler, a comedian, a shark, a myriad of ‘types’; a chaotic ball of intricately wound strategies, projects, personalities, and driver of results. No one truly understands your world unless they’ve been in it.
Bishop TD Jakes has said ‘You can’t explain a Giraffe Decision to a Turtle. A turtle sees the world from their point of view, and the giraffe from theirs. We eat at the level of our vision.” Don’t let naysayers hold you back. Feed your brain with the right stuff instead!
In honor of Small Business Week, I would like to celebrate all you Giraffes, risk takers, dream builders, and wealth chasers – all of you very small business owners and solo-prenuers – for all you take on, for your commitment and follow through, and for your passion and pursuit.
Running a small business and working to build a speaking business is not easy, and you must be wise with your limited time. You must be wise enough to know when you should delegate and what you should take on. You passionately press forward with your vision.
To honor you, and help in growing your business, I will be offering a series of short – 1 topic only webinars – where I’ll share not only marketing trends, best practices, and tech tips, but quick things you can do to build some immediate impact. We’ll also take some time to celebrate you, the small business owner and speaker, and honor all you are doing to take your business to the next level.
Celebrate with us, and show what helps you do more business, get more speaking gigs, and build your lists. Post your answers on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest or on your own accounts. using #DoMoreSpeaking from May 14th-May 31st, for a chance to win some prizes (brand audit, event setup, landing page setup, and more)!
