I’ve often been asked to look at a business situation, assess it, and offer recommendations for new ideas to re-energize both the entrepreneur and small business. It’s not about fixing a problem so much, but finding out where the soul of the vision or actual implementation went off track or lacked luster. Other times it’s about creating a plan of action, or powerful promotions campaign to get BIG BOLD results and refocus on what’s important to the client I’m working with.
On a recent Make Money Monday coffee house tour, I had a visit from a young entrepreneur who has a web-based business connecting people and opportunities. She was very passionate about her work, but needed some direction and a sounding board to confidentially address her concerns, and a double espresso of inspiration to move to the next level. I was impressed that she traveled from another state to visit with me at a coffee shop in Cambridge, where we sat for an hour and put together a skeleton plan to build a new platform for her business.
Today, almost two weeks later, she called me with a flushed out plan and details of pricing, levels, and prospects to launch her program. She’s going to the market with a targeted list of opportunities, and has thought out many of the ideas we co-created at our coffee shop session. I love the fact that she knows that building a business is about doing it, getting out there — and that course correction happens. It’s OK. It’s part of business.
I write this today because perhaps YOU may need a cup of coffee, and boost in your business. A confidential sounding board to express your concerns, or someone to help you re-energize your dream.
I will be hiring my new business friend because she has the qualities I look for in building my team. She’s smart, bold, talented, and is willing to put in the hours to make her business work. She has the guts, passion, and drive to make her business successful, and went out of her way to search me out – in Inman Square in Cambridge, MA on a random Monday morning.
