Through the Fire

In frustration on July 25, 2011 at 9:27 pm

Dear Entrepreneurs,

How do you avoid infuriating  personal issues while running your business? Well… you can’t unless you are an emotional genius. It is just simpler to accept that emotions are apart of  life and that sometimes your feelings can get in the way of your day to day activities. It is vital that you learn how to control your emotions because believe it or not it may effect your work and most importantly your business and its success. Before you run through the fires of anger and frustration because of a relative, boyfriend, best friend or colleague, just cool your heels and reflect on how it will affect your business. Have you ever let a personal matter affect your business?

Good work + Sanity = Success

Talking the Talk

In Loyal Customers on July 21, 2011 at 6:22 pm

Dear Entrepreneurs,

The talkers, all they do is talk, talk, talk. They elevate your hopes only to leave you disappointed and to some extent even bitter.  Please stop wasting everyone’s energy and time. Spare me! You “talkers” are not doing me any favors by trying to convince me that you will be one of my loyal customers or promising to purchase from my business and then I never hear from you again. Try to distance yourself from people who don’t follow through with their word or who will only deliver  false hopes. They are a waste of your business’ time and energy. Maybe it is best for everyone to just to build a business through referrals which is easier said than done. However, every business can not be solely built from referrals, so if it is not your intent to become a supportive, respected and loyal customer…YOU SHOULD NOT PLAY WITH ENTREPRENEURS TIME AND ENERGY.

Have you ever had someone build your excitement level up regarding your business and you never hear from the person again? Tell your story.

Staying true to yourself for your business. Well, are you?

In Identity on July 8, 2011 at 11:57 am

Dear Entrepreneurs,

It is a very good feeling when you realize that there is a need for your business and ideas, but there is an irritating side to this as well. Some clients will tell you exactly what it is they want from you when it is your goal to tell them what you think is best for them as the professional. I design my pieces based on what I think will complement you and will make you stand out. I think it is easy for entrepreneurs to lose themselves while growing their business. I’ve seen this happen. You have to determine very early on in your business what kind of business person you are. This is a big part in building your image too. If a customer asks you to design accessories that aren’t the kind of accessories that you usually design, tell them immediately that those are not the types of accessories that you design. It’s just not what I do. You must stay true to yourself.

What do you think? How important is your businesses identity to you?
