Small Business Community

One of the best things about what I get to do is the people that I meet. I had some wonderful conversations this week – I guess if there is an overall theme – the people I meet are curious, interested and working hard. No one expects ‘success’ to fall in their lap – and they are committed to creating their financial security while doing something that is worthwhile.
I have spent much time this week working in the community, a group of like minded people. I have started adding video content (and links to the interviews that I have done) so that the knowledge I gather can be shared with others.
If you know a startup, entrepreneur, founder or business owner please invite them to join us.
Last week
Wow, what a week; some weeks I’m grounded and other weeks I’m travelling from one state to another, playing many and various roles.
Monday had me speaking in Coffs Harbour, Tuesday in Sydney. I had a great catch up with Customer Advocate and all round great woman Tiffani Bova, and Wednesday I interviewed some Facebook team members in Melbourne. If you missed it you can get it in the community (…I think we need a better name for our group). From here I visited the award winning Melbourne Real Estate team who are great advocates of the platform, watched the Porsche team at the Grand Prix whilst delivering my keynote between races as part of the ‘Women of Drive’ program.  In Sydney for the rest of the week hanging out at Gravity and the team.
Coming Up
Last week had me on the move, this week I have a speaking engagement in Fiji for a client… which of course I am looking forward to.
Thought for the week:
The grass isn't greener on the other side. Its greener where you water it.

What I am reading:
This is not a sprint, it’s a marathon, so you need both the physical and mental endurance.”
Baby steps are better than no steps at all! – Crowd funding
The wish to ‘turn a dollar’, ‘solve a problem’ and be an entrepreneur is certainly not restricted!
What I wrote recently:
In the media last week:
Where to get:
Ready to Soar (how to turn your brilliant idea into a business you love)
Live What You Love (When Passion and Purpose Change your Life)
Quote of the week:
Find someone who has a life that you want  and figure out how they got it. Read books, pick your role models wisely. Find out what they did and do it.

Grow & Scale Your Business by Naomi Simson

Tell Naomi a little bit about your business by completing the questions below. (It will take less than 60 seconds)

Answering your #1 Biggest Business Challenge question tip: 

Go beyond just saying "Poor Cashflow" or "Unreliable Team". 

Instead, give Naomi details & specifics on how this is currently your #1 Biggest Business Challenge. 

I.e. "Every month I'm struggling to pay my bills on time because there just isn't consistent cash flow coming into the business. I've tried sticking to budgets in the past & pay myself less to keep some extra funds aside for emergencies, but still every month there seems to be another financial fire to be put out. I don't know what to do about it, so I'm just grinding it out."
