Last Wednesday was my last Bizness Babes class. I’m a little sad about that. I have loved meeting up with my new group of friends, all on a mission to carve out our own little piece of the business world. The inspiration and support we have provided for each other has been immeasurable, and I know that we will all be there for each other as our business journey continues.
What will that Journey be??? I’m not a big fan of the term “Journey” I think it’s been a bit overused by reality TV, every contestant on Masterchef or The Biggest Loser is heading on a journey, as they wipe their running mascara tears during their straight to camera outpourings. Good grief, even the Big Brother contestants who travelled absolutely nowhere, were on a journey. It may have been to find the biggest bogan, but according to Gretel, they had all undertaken an amazing Journey. Being a huge reality TV junkie (it really is like a car crash, you can’t look away) apparently I have travelled their journeys with them. I have travelled so many journeys that I’m feeling a little jet lagged!
So, a journey I might not be on, but another analogy I desperately need to find.
I might be a little bit like Mary Mary quite contrary – How will my garden grow? Or will I be Jack and Jill heading up the hill? no, tumbling down the other side isn’t in my plans. Maybe I’m just on a countdown ready to blast into infinity and beyond (thanks Buzz). I’ll have a little think about that one and get back to you, and yes I might be spending a little too much time with the Munchkin’s books!
I’ve taken the last week to sit and think about what I’m doing, how I’m doing it and how the hell am I going to get this business plan together so I can graduate in July.
I have a name for my business and a bit of a vision, I know how it feels, but am having a little bit of trouble working out how it should look. Being such a visual person, this is a HUGE problem. I need to sort out the look of my business, my logo, my identity and I know that I will power from there. So it’s time for the hard work to start.
I’m really proud of the achievements I’ve made so far. Thanks to Bizness Babes I’ve managed to work through my head verses heart decisions and have come out with a really strong business idea. I’ve never really had much of a problem coming up with ideas, it’s just picking one, sticking with it and doing the hard work that comes with making an idea a reality. So now I’m in the hard work stage I’m getting a little bit scared. I have registered my business name, purchased my domain name and started my business plan. This is a great start, but the next couple of weeks will involve a lot of list writing, sweat and I’m sure many many tears!
Wish me luck!
