The first entrepreneur of the month honors for 2013 fall to Suzi Dronzek, graphic artist, intuitive consultant, healer and entrepreneur. A lot of the challenges that beset entrepreneurs are similar from person to person and career path to career path. If you have the chance to hear from other entrepreneurs where they struggle, where their personal habits have either expanded their businesses or caused challenges, then perhaps we can shave some time off of your personal journey to success. You can learn more about Suzi at her site Starcana.com and listen to my interview with Suzi here: SDronzekInterview.
In keeping with this being the entrepreneur of the month blog, I’d like to share some of my favorite tips and tools with you starting with the book Lean In, by Sheryl Sandberg. This book is for every woman who has ever questioned her right to speak up because she didn’t feel she was good enough. Women have been in the workforce in one form or another forever, but the idea of being in a leadership position, well somehow, in some quarters, that idea still ruffles some feathers. Ms. Sandberg invites us to take a look at that and then be willing to stand up or as she puts it–lean in.
I mentioned awhile back that your Instagram profile and photos were going to be made available via the web and Instagram is one hot, hot, hot platform for business owners now. You can share tips, help people get to know you, show your products, and advertise your services worldwide. So, if you’re not on Instagram now, you might just want to check it out. And of course, I can’t leave Pinterest out of the equation. If you’re marketing to women, you need to be in two places online right now–Facebook and Pinterest. Selling products, curating great content, warehousing your blogs, and possibly connecting with Joint Venture buddies are just some of the reasons for you to take advantage of this platform that is taking the business world by storm. Eye candy sells, so get moving and meet me on Pinterest.
Last, but not least, that tiny voice in your head that says you’re not good enough, you know, the one Ms. Sandberg mentioned? Well, it can kill your business PDQ. I have been working with a set of audio programs that literally retrain your brain so that you think not just positively, but these program teach you to think like the men and women who have already achieved success. Want to learn more? You can check it out here(affiliate link). You’ll also find a host of other helpful tools, books, etc., here on my Resources page and in my business newsletter which you can sign up for here.
I think that’s going to do it for now; know that I’m wishing you a brilliant April filled with powerful, positive success and don’t forget to share this blog with friends who might find it helpful!
