Be Your Own Boss – Week 2 – 11.10.2021

Our Be Your Own Boss SRG members gave it their all in this weeks’ ambitious session, exploring their goals and ambitions for their business’s future. After being introduced to the concept of Ambition Trees, our members envisioned where they would like to be in 6-months’ time, 12-months’ time and 24 months’ time – and whether it was networking deep within the ecological community to source out potential consumers or support, or setting up a workshop space to store baby products, our Be Your Own Boss members really proved they had their eyes on the prize and gave members a tool to develop a clear structure and focus of where they would like to be with their businesses in the future.  

As well as being joined by special guest Zoe Aldous for the second week in a row, successful entrepreneur and playwright Brian Daniels also joined in with this week’s session, telling our members his stories of entrepreneurship from a very young age. He discussed the challenges of setting up and running a business – but also the rewards of climbing the ladder of success, of hard-work paying off and of being confident in yourself and your business. It was a truly encouraging session to hear from both Brian and Zoe, and our Be Your Own Boss SRG members did a fantastic job of setting their own goals! 

Brian’s advice: “Don’t hide behind emails – pick up the phone and talk to people! You are your brand – you are the reason people are buying from you”
