In 2016 I went to the Christy Wright’s Business Boutique this started me on a positive course to success. My business is doing better https://etsy.com/shop/whatchamacallit The conference in and of itself has made me feel more assertive to make decisions that are in MY best interest. The reason I have a business is to make great things and talk about fun subjects. I walked away from the conference with the need to write this blog. I have never been a writer. It was great to come away with such encouragement which included a wonderful faith message too.
I am reading Christy Wright’s Business Boutique. This book is the perfect guide for anyone who wants to start a business or already has a business. A considerable amount of the information applies to all business. As I read this it has helped me know that my business I have started is working well. It is a reassurance, such a confidence builder. Christy’s story telling is visual she has written this method as a dedication to her Mother’s bakeshop that her Mother had from the time Christy was 6 months old. It starts with a base of a cake, “a good foundation.”
Tier 1: The why and the dream. I love this, there is a why with my business. Do what you love and love what you do. That is a metaphor from a t-shirt actually, the dream is really to be a success. I am getting there it takes lots of patience and time.
Tier 2: Build to your strengths, love and hate of money and making the most of your $, time, scheduling and space. All of these can be challenging. I am about 2 years into my business and I am still working on a couple of these.
Tier 3: Operations and follow through, best business practices like a pro, how to make money and make the most of it, don’t devalue your costs and getting through the boring stuff like paper work and taxes.
Tier 4: Putting yourself out there in marketing, story telling (as I am here), trying to reach the right people the ones that you would like to get your product or service to, then clinching the sale.
I will leave the rest as a surprise. This brief description is only an overview for you to get an idea of all of the help chapters provide. The reading is great because Christy Wright writes the way she speaks. I felt as though I were at the Business Boutique in Nashville, TN again while reading Business Boutique. When I was there I was able to say yes to a blog. I had no idea that I wanted to write one. It has been invigorating. With the help of this well written guide I am looking forward to my writing and business improvement.
